Wolf Creek
Once apon a time in Mexico
The adventure of sharkboy and lava girl
and I think Spy Kids 3D, can you see a pattern emerging, anything shot by Robert Rodriguez, were he could DP by moniter, or allow his gaffer to do most of the hard work.

And i heard someone mention Eli Roth's Hostel, but could someone confirm or deny that please?

I presume you mean-films-that-have-been-shown-in-commercial-cinemas-where-people-actually-paid-money-to-see-them-type films :P
Compared to the number that [i]weren'ti] not too many at all!
But there'so shortage of low-budget Indie crap shot on video.

And did anybody mention "Wolf Creek"?

The List I currently know of (some have already been said here):
  • Once Upon a Time in Mexico
  • Wolf Creek
  • Spy Kids 2
  • Spy Kids 3D
  • Superman
  • The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lava Girl in 3D
  • Sin City
  • Sin City 2 (Upcoming)
  • Star Wars, Ep II
  • Star Wars, Ep III
  • Bubble
These are all films that have been released mainstream... There is a host of HD films Direct to video, and several other film that have gotten limited release in Theaters.

I'm sure there are more films that have goten wide release bing shot in HD, but I don't have a complete list.

It should be significant to anyone paying attention that out of 11 pictures you've listed here, 8 were made by only 2 different directors/producers. Without those two, you would have a list of only 3 pictures. This is very illustrative of what people like myself and others often try to point out here - there is not yet any real significant industry acceptance of digital origination, regardless of the hype of the manufacturers that offer equipment to support it. Post production, yes. Production, no.

yeah but this is a landon list so it misses off any theatrically released films outside america and or multplexs, which is perhaps where the most interesting market change will be. in the boad theatrical market you are, of course, completely right when you say 'Post production, yes. Production, no.'

I've only seen it on DVD but Kiyoshi Kurosawa's "Doppelganger" is pretty good looking HD (F900)

(was this question about films shot partially on HD or exclusively HD ?)
