http://www.thedigitalbits.com/rumormill.html#011206

1/12/06

We've gotten some more new street date information from our industry sources for some major early '06 titles:

Universal is planning to release Peter Jackson's King Kong on 3/28.

New Line has Just Friends scheduled for March 7.

Paramount has tentatively slated Yours Mine & Ours for February 28.

Miramax's Derailed is currently due on 3/21.

Finally, we're hearing Disney's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is tentatively due in early April.Keep in mind, all of these dates are unofficial until the studio makes their actual public announcements.

Stay tuned...

why make 3 threads including all the rumors that were in the article? and then when they are announced do another for that. aren't these threads just redundant?

Because each thread is from a major DVD release, even if they are announced on the same article. The discussion for each DVD release deserve a separate thread, for the sake of clarity,and discussion . And by the way, the King Kong thread is from a week ago, I posted over there the corrected release info.

From dvdactive.com:

Title: Chronicles of Narnia
Starring: Tilda Swinton
Released: 4th April 2006
SRP: Prices TBC

Further Details:

Disney Home Video has made available artwork for single and double-disc editions of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe which stars Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, William Moseley, Anna Popplewell and Tilda Swinton. Both DVD's will be available to own from the 4th April this year. I'm afraid Disney has yet to reveal the disc specs for these, but we'll bring you the full details, just as soon as the final announcement is made. Stay tuned. For now though, here's the official package artwork:

The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe --> April 4th!

It's official!

Buena Vista Home Entertainment has big DVD plans for "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," preparing two versions of the blockbuster hit for release on April 4. Both the single-disc version ($19.99) and a two-disc collector's edition ($29.99) will include two commentaries with director Andrew Adamson, one in which he's accompanied by other filmmakers and the other, by children. Both versions also will come with pop-up windows throughout the film with facts on the movie and "Narnia" author C.S. Lewis. The double-disc "Narnia" also will come with a booklet, concept art, storytelling diaries of the filmmakers, a "making of" featurette, an interactive map of Narnia and an Anatomy of a Scene feature showing how the dramatic melting river sequence was created. Also included are backgrounders on 11 of the creatures in the film, an interactive map of Narnia with descriptions of different locales and a feature on author Lewis.

I'm glad to see a quick release on this one, but I'm still sick of all these 1-disk bare bones and then 2-disk special releases.

How is this a bad thing when they are both released on the same date to provide choices?

Do we really need all these redundant threads?

It's a bad thing because the 1-disk gets the special release price of $14.99 or whatever, and the 2-disk does not. If they only released the 2-disk then that would be $14.99 at Wal-Mart on release week. As it stands now, the 2-disk will be at least $5 more than the bare-bones loss leader.

Because retailers always choose the 1-disc as the loss leader, thus putting it on sale. The 2-disc never gets a sale price.

If there was only a 2-disc version, it would be $15 during release week. Since there are 2 versions, the 2-disc will be probably $22.99 and the 1-disc $14.99

That's why.

Well that sucks. Looks like we can count on this being anywhere from $23-30 for the 2 discer.

Though admittedly this is one I might just pick up the single disk as I liked it enough to buy but probably not enough to sit and watch a bunch of extras on anyway. It was good, but no LOTR or Harry Potter by any means (nor are the books themselves).

I really liked the look of the 2 disc version so I might actually be inclined to get it this time. I too am tired of this.

I guess it's better than them not telling us and releasing the 1 disc first then the 2 disc down the road.

I always get suckered by those deals even though I don't usually upgrade unless there's extra scenes.

I'll have to compare disc to disc since it doesn't sound like there'll be any extended scenes or anything of that nature.

Yep. I passed in the theater. I'll rent it. If I like it, I'll definitely go for the 1-disc. This isn't a title where I want to see all the ins and outs of production.

Honestly, I bet this will outsell the Harry Potter discs (dont know about LOTR). This movie was soooo embraced by the christian right, and I bet they will buy them up (along with the LOTR and HP fans that liked it pretty well).

This is another reason why I think it earned more than Kong during the holiday season.
