    Coming to DVD 43 weeks after it's theatrical release, My Big Fat Greek Wedding will be released on Feb 11th next year.
    Just shows what can happen when you get a suprise hit!

    Obviously they're going to do a big valentines day push for this film, makes sense.

    Considering the movie is #2/3 in the charts, why put it on video early?

    So Johnny, are you going to tell us where you are getting this information, or should we treat this as another internet rumor?

    Do you ask Digital Bits/DVD File/IGN/Davis DVD their sources? Because I'm sure they don't disclose them.

    In regard to the Bits and DVDFile, their sources are usually the studios so there is no reason to doubt them.

    This may well be the date for MBFGW, however until it is confirmed by the studio of record, I think I'll just treat it as a rumor.

    I, too, am waiting for this DVD. However, I drove past my local cinema this morning and noticed "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" in now enjoying a SECOND run at this theater. I have never seen this particular theater run the same movie TWICE in the same year. Doesn't look good for an early DVD release.

    I saw a double-page spread a few weeks ago in either Video Business or Video Store but anyway, on the ad it said, "COMING TO DVD IN 2003 FROM HBO HOME VIDEO".

    Okay, I'll be hospitable about the info just because it sounds about right anyway really. You have to figure that there has been plenty of time to put a DVD together, and they know it's a big hit at this point, so a FEB window is highly realistic.
    The fiancee has been in my ear about this like she was me waiting on FOTR or something. [​IMG] Seriously, if there were ever a title she would pre-order, try to get early, or generally geek out over, this is it. [​IMG]
    A V-Day release also makes sense.

    I read the article in the LA Times a few weeks back and it stated that Warner Bros. bid for and obtained the rights for the DVD.

    They showed this on my flight from NYC to LA tonight, but as I didn't know how much of it would be chopped-up, I passed and read/slept instead.

    Still over 4 months to go so I guess the theater run will be done by then.
