Found this over at DVDFile.

Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment has announced a June 10th street date for Tears of the Sun, the Bruce Willis action-fest that just debuted in theaters last weekend. Billed as a special edition, retail is $27.95 and specs have not yet been announced

WOW. I can't wait for the day when the DVD and theatrical release date for big movies are the same or extremely close to each other. That said, I'll be very surprised if the DVD and theatrical release dates for a big movie are the same.

The short time period between Tears Of The Sun's theatrical debut and its home video debut (3 months) is indicative of a growing trend for films that tanked at the box office to get out of the multiplexes and head for video store as soon as possible to recoup its cost.

Successful films either box office hits or critical hits will most likely retain their 6 month or longer video dates. Chicago which had a December debut isn't scheduled until August and The Hours which also had a December 2002 debut hasn't been announced for home video yet and, of course, The Twin Towers video debut is way beyond the usual six month period.

Robert, in today's market a big budget actioner starring a box office name like Bruce Willis is considered a flop if it doesn't open in the number #1 slot with continuing legs and an eventual $100 million plus gross. The film itself probably costs somewhere in the $60 to $80 million dollar range to make.

In contrast, the Steve Martin-Queen Latifah comedy which opened the same week as Tears Of The Sun is in it's second week at number one and scheduled to soar past the $100 million dollar mark real soon and it cost nowhere near as much as Tears.

according to boxofficemojo.com Tears of The Sun cost $75 million to make and has a marketing budget of $35 million. So they need to do $110 million just to break even. yikes.

Then there's always this design (from orig. poster art).
Note the rather provocative wardrobe donned by Miss Remick. Look at those... :eek: :D



That shot is from the opening "garage" scene. But in no way do we see this much flesh aboard Miss Remick (too bad).

Just a way to "spice up" the advertising I guess.

But David, IS that Lee Remick (or supposed to be Remick?)? It's kind of hard to tell with the hand over the face but if you'll recall Stefanie Powers as Remick's kid sister is forced to strip down to her underwear in the film.

In reality, it's probably an anonymous model and the photo an amalgam of both Ms. Remick's and Miss Power's scenes.

It'll make money, don't forget international markets.
A film about american soldiers with hearts of gold, saving the world once again? In the current mood, I don't see it doing HUGE business outside of USA. I actually believe they have delayed the foreign theatrical release for that very reason.........


Looking forward to Experiment in Terror. :emoji_thumbsup:
