Interesting that Julie Taymor's take on the play (with Helen Mirren and Russell Brand) will be on Blu-ray only via Disney. It's available next Tuesday. Has this ever happened with a new release from a major studio?

According to Amazon there is also a DVD release. it seems to just be a placeholder though as there is no release date listed. I wonder why they would release it on blu-ray only, unless it was requested by the director.

Ron posted the official Tempest Blu-ray release and according to the info we got from Disney it is on Blu-ray only at this time.  While Amazon has the DVD available for pre-order there is no release date tied to it.  I haven't seen this happen before.

The DVD is scheduled for December. The studios are really pushing BRD this 4th quarter as a preference.
