Blu-Ray still due this fall in EU?

Biodom sent in some links for various French online retailers of movies, each still featuring the Blu-Ray edition of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2, and all still posting an October 8th release. Not much should be read into this, since the release of films in North America is completely separate from their release overseas – their system of distribution pre-dates the Internet, so you were never supposed to be able to compare plans for release in one country to plans for release in another. Which is to say, Sony appears to be setting up 2009 as a big year for Ghostbusters, but its distribution partners abroad are still proceeding as planned (as is their right.)

Those of you that hate the green slime motif of the previous DVDs, get ready – not only does it persist in the French edition of the Blu-Ray, but they even come with extra slime!

[UPDATE] For those wondering about the North American release, to clarify, since Comic Con it has looked like Sony was opting to hold back the Blu-Ray release until next year, to maximize exposure alongside sales of the video game. No official word on when that will be, though Summer dates have started to pop up for the video game.
