    Being a "smaller" title, I'm surprised they are announcing the release this far out. Also, I'm surprised it's not coming out sooner than September.

    Agreed it is an odd announcement, unless they're trying to cash in somehow on Taymor's SPIDER-MAN musical notoriety (in which case get the DVD/BD out there pronto; the movie received a minimal release.)
