    Looks like some strong rumours about a 4thQTR 2 disc set of Raiders of the Lost Ark from Moriarty on AICN (He is a pretty good source in my view).

    Also some information on the LOTR and Once Upon a Time in the West.

    I don't think a January release would really work that well. Sure, there's gift certificates and new hardware, but I doubt that would really offset how Q4 sales tend to be multiples of rest-of-year sales. Buena Vista did all right putting their most recent animated feature out first-week-of-February, but they also slapped a "limited time" on them which skews the numbers.

    Paramount/Lucas/Amblin have to figure, if they don't put it out Q4 '02, do they wait until Q4 '03 or settle for a smaller market? There's probably going to be enough room - say Attack Of The Clones and BTTF come out in mid-October, then Raiders can come out around Thanksgiving (while Dreamworks releases Minority Report in December).
