    In light of recent events, it has been said that this DVD may not be released on 10/30/01 as previously scheduled.
    Can anyone confirm whether it will come out that day or, if it has been delayed, what the new release date is?
    Thanks,
    Glen

    I'm almost 100% guaranteed that Swordfish DVD is coming out on 10/30, because while during the Technicolor tour, at the L.A. Meet, I saw a bunch of Swordfish DVD crates ready to be shipped out.
    So, I for one think it will be out on time!

    But because of the 9/11 incidents, Blockbuster is gonna put up a sticker on the movies saying something along the lines of "Due to the recent events, this film is about terrorists and may not be suitable for everyone"

    The stickers shouldn't matter because you buy/rent your DVDs from reputable outfits instead, right?
    Besides, who's buying the movie to see terrorists. [​IMG]

    I wouldn't laugh. Remember those stories that the Top Renters the weekend after the attack included "Independence Day" and "Armageddon".

    "Swordfish" oh "Swordfish" how I want this movie on DVD! I really have been waiting for this movie on DVD since I saw the movie in theatres, this was the one summer movie I enjoyed the rest weren't so good IMO. I've been thinking about this a lot since 9/11. My bets are it will be released or we would have probably heard something from Warner by now because there is only 2 weeks till it streets.

    Yes, Keith, I am with you on that!!!!
    This was the only summer movie, suffice to say, I bothered to see twice this year. (Only because my beloved other favorite summer flick, Jump Tomorrow, got away from me after only two weeks at the theater!!! [​IMG] )
    I know a brilliant idea: Since the Warner Chat has now been rescheduled to this coming Tuesday evening, why not one of us bring up the release of Swordfish on 10-30 to be on the safe side? [​IMG] IMHO, it could not hurt none, actually.
    And yes, Keith, I have wanted this one on DVD since I saw it on my birthday in June!!!! It should be a good one if mastered properly and orderly.
    Bring on Swordfish!!!! [​IMG]

    Were they actually terrorists or just freedom fighters?

    James, Blockbuster is "stickering" Swordfish because Warner went right to sell-through with the video in their on-going dispute. You notice that they have not "stickered" DVD's such as Die Hard, Independence Day, The Siege, etc. - only Swordfish.
