I know there’s been some discussion in the comment threads around here recently about the short window between theatrical release and DVD release. We’re talking about how a movie like TITANIC today might not last so long in the theaters, since most people would expect it on DVD in relatively short order.
Then I read this today:
Okay… back to those announcements. First up, Sony has set Rent for release on 2/21. I believe we’ve mentioned this one before, but Universal has set The Ice Harvest for 2/28. Here’s a few new ones for you: Jarhead and Brokeback Mountain are both on the way for a 3/7 release, with Pride & Prejudice set to follow on 3/14.
Has BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN even gone into wide release yet?!?
ICE HARVEST and RENT both bombed in relatively short order, but I know RENT is being announced about a month after it debuted in theaters, if not less.
