This is a question that has had me puzzled. When a DVD movie is released, who has the final say of when it's released and with what particular cut of the film? For example, Lucas, I know, makes all the decisions of how and when a Star Wars film is released (such as TPM). I know it was up to Donner as far as when and how Superman was done on DVD. However, it *seems* other movies have little input by directors or whoever else and the studios do what they want. So, who makes the decision? Does it depend on who owns the film? Can the studio, in some cases, put out any kind of DVD releases they see fit?
