Theatrical Release: 9/20/02
DVD Release: 12/24/02
Considering this film got buried by the studio (is it even still around?), it doesn't surprise me that it's coming out on video so quickly.
By the way, isn't that photo of Kevin Bacon from Stir of Echoes?
Wow! 95 days is pretty quick turnaround.
How about "The Adventures of Pluto Nash"? Isn't that coming out on dvd in December too after a very brief theater run in September? Crawdaddy
The time between theatrical and DVD release is getting shorter & shorter all the time. (Which is obviously great for we DVD-a-holics! )
Insomnia came out in less than five months.....
Theatrical Release Date: May 24, 2002;
DVD Release Date: October 15, 2002.
One-Hour Photo, just 5 months....August --> January.
Signs: Also only 5 months.
Nothing will be Cool as Ice's record for a major studio film 6 WEEKS (many of these Christian Apocolypse movies that keep being made for some reason debut simultaneously on video and theatrically, but are only available on video through the sponsoring organization until an "official" release)
I don't even remember it being released in my area
Barb Wire was only like 4-8 weeks I thought. For the VHS release.
I saw this movie at the theater believe it or not, and I kinda enjoyed it. I'll be picking this up if the price is right. Too bad Columbia abandoned this movie due to all the recent kidnapping cases in the news lately. Anybody else catch it in it's very short theater run? Dean
Hey anyone saw Pluto Nash? My friend's a vietnamese cooker in it. If he's there (not been cut out) i'll buy it for him.
A total of 5 people saw Pluto Nash. No, I wasn't one of them.
My guess is that for a flick like Trapped (which the studio knew they'd be 'burying' for quite a while) they got the DVD wheels turning pretty quick.
Haven't seen the flick, but I do like that cast! Lookin' forward to it.
Deuces Wild opened on 5/3 and was out on DVD 8/6.
I'm betting the new Madonna movie, Swept Away, will beat all of the above
A friend of mine owned a video store in the mid-80s and I used to go through the upcoming title mailings he got. I think the record holder for theatrical release to home video may still be Bo Derek's Bolero. I don't remember the exact dates but I do know the VHS version was being offered to stores two months before the film's theatrical debut, and the "street date" was only weeks after that. The stuido knew a winner when they saw one.
(Then, of course, there are films so bad that they never get to theaters. Not all "direct-to-video" titles are intended to be released that way.)
Ghost of Mars was another quick turn around. After it's opening weekend they announced the DVD version.
"The Blair Witch Project" was released in mid-July 1999 and was available on video and DVD by mid-October, so that falls in the three-month category. Artisan no doubt tried to rush the "BWP" home videos out for Halloween.
