Henry VIII or will any Henry do at DVDFile?

DVDFile.com isn't the best fact checker in the world but a new post has me completely confused.

"Also announced by Warner is Kenneth Branagh's Henry VIII, which will make its DVD debut on November 16th. Remastered in anamorphic widescreen and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, the only extra is the theatrical trailer. List price will go for $29.95?"

What are they taking about? I don't know of any Branagh version of Henry VIII. Is this a rerelease of Henry V? A release of one of the many Henry VIII films out there? Which one? Or is this DVDFile.com typing in their sleep again?

I was confused too. I even checked IMDB with no luck.

My wife's a Shakespeare/Branagh fan so I try to collect some DVDs for her.

Understatement alert!

My favorite was when they 'reviewed' Auntie Mame, and thought it was a musical.

It's got to be Hamlet! Please let it be that.

Henry VIII is about a guy who got married to the widow next door. She's been married seven times before. Every one was a Henry, she'd never have a Willie or a Sam.

Not sure what DVD File is talking about, but Warner and HBO are releasing this film on November 16.

I'm pretty sure that's the one they're talking about. I saw it pop up in the Coming Soon corner here a second ago. It's got a picture on the front of Ray Winstone that could pass for a paunchy Kenneth Branagh, so I imagine DVDFile just made an assumption. An incorrect assumption, but then, they're known for that.

Found a picture of the disc. I wonder why DVDFile doesn't ever correct their mistakes. It's annoying...reminds me of a coming soon news blurb that refered to a drama as a hysterical comedy. I emailed them even because it's confusing...but they never change anything.
