FIRST!!! Sony Classics Gets 2 DVDs Into Voter Hands
Naomi Watts starrer Mother & Child and Aussie crime drama Animal Kingdom started landing around town this week.
We’re still weeks away from the public DVD releases of Winter’s Bone(10/26), Toy Story 3 (11/2), and The Kids Are All Right (11/16), so it will interesting to see if they turn up sooner than that. Shutter Island lands next week from Par Home Ent… and I won’t watch it in anything less than Blu. Inception is scheduled to be released on Dec 6 in the UK… still not clear about the U.S… but I would say the film would be well-served by a strong push to get people back into movie theaters for that one, instead of relying on the DVD experience.
Most of the other contenders are less than two weeks into theatrical runs or not yet in release. I count 11 due after Thanksgiving, which is kinda the drop dead date for screeners, with the exception of the highest profile films (True Grit and How Do You Know likely to be the last screeners on the shelf this year.)
