The Village

Does anyone out there have any information as to when "The Village" is due to be released on DVD? I'm assuming it's got a release date prior to the end of the year, but I haven't heard anything else.

Any help?

Thanks,

Mub

Sure. Just a word to the wise: When asking a question, use a question mark in your thread title so people don't get pissed off when they click it thinking they will read an announcement of a release date.

I would guess early January, that's what Buena Vista did with Signs, which was released theatrically around the same time of year.

The title got me excited as well. I was hoping the thread was about The Village never coming to DVD. Oh well.

Your originality astounds me.

Why do people whine about question marks?

Because some people are still on dial-up and the 47 seconds it takes to load the page only to find out it's a question thread and not an info thread is frustrating.

I can sort of understand that. But, those people decide to spend their time on a message board so I don't think they can complain too much.

Point is without a question mark you assume that there is info about the release of it. It's anticlimactic to actuall open the thread and see that it's just someone else like yourself who is wondering about the information.

When there is information about a release out there, it will be posted.

That goes the same with thread titles that are written like this

"Hey guys, look at this wonderful news..........."

Thread titles should be as clear to what the subject will be about to save time on wasted clicks.

That is usually an indication of yet another Star Wars thread.

I agree with what you said Jack. But, was it really that upsetting that there wasn't a date yet? As for wasted clicks, how can someone complain about that being on a message board?

OK, here is what I've heard -- The Village was set for a release over the New Year's weekend (like Signs). However then it was discovered that (If you haven't seen the movie don't read this!)
Spoiler:
we are actually all living in the 1800s and DVD doesn't exist!
SCARY!

The mods have made it clear on an alomst daily basis that you're supposed to use a question mark in the thread title when you're asking a question. It's fucking annoying when people don't.

I wonder if this will be a Vista Series or have they done away with that line? There hasn't been a Vistas Series since Who Framed Roger Rabbit in March '03.

On topic, there isn't a sniff of information on any site that I can fnid about a potential date. I would think it would have been announced by now if it was making it's appearance pre-Christmas.

I'm hoping for another Vista Series release and that it has the Sci-Fi special on it as an extra.

Where was I complaining? If you didn't notice, I was laughing about it.
BTW, cry me a river. crying about a question mark.

Village is doing ok. Cost $65 million to make and $40 million to promote. To date it has brought in $112+ million (domestically) and still going. I don't imagine the studio is disappointed with its performance.

I think the main reason why THE VILLAGE was a let down was because it was suppose to be one of the few titles for buena vista that was suppose to make up for the other flicks of theirs that totally flopped. It's drop from week 1 and week 2 was pretty huge. Not HULK huge, but huge none the less.

Either way it will make a lot on dvd.

Jack, did the Village make it's money back? I really liked the movie but, I'll admit it was a little let down. I still definately plan on picking up the DVD.

It's made over $110 million I think; if it cost more than that I'd be shocked to hell.
