First "Fish", Game Boy Advance Launches in North America, Release News

 

The weekend's box office was pretty strong with Swordfish leading the way in first with a cool 18.1 million. Shrek continued its dominance in second with 16.5 million while Pearl Harbor started to drop with a decent 14.7 million. Evolution opened at fourtth with a disappointing 13.4 while The Animal was in fifth was 9.6 million.

Moulin Rouge sang it's way to sixth with 7.6 million, What's The Worst That Could Happen? dropped to seventh with 5.5 while in eighth, ninth and ten there was The Mummy Returns with 4.7, A Knight's Tale with 1.7 and Bridget Jones's Diary with 1.1 million.

In other news, this week Nintendo's new Game Boy Advance system launches. You sure notice that DVDlaunch has a small video game section (that is going to expand TREMENDOUSLY this summer), and in that section you can find reviews of the hardware as well as some games. Look for more GBA reviews to come this summer as well as other system reviews.

Finally... some release news (haven't done that in a long time). I wanted to make note of that 61*, the excellent Billy Crystal HBO film will make it's debut on DVD on September 11th. For a mere 19.95, you get an anamorphic transfer of the film (it was shown in full frame on TV so this is nice), the excellent making-of feature shown on HBO, cast bios and as I prayed... as commentary with Crystal himself! Sounds quite good for quite a nice price.

Also, Paramount announced The Godfather Trilogy but I'm sure you've already heard about that... for one hundred bucks, it sounds like a good deal considering Paramount's prices are usually thirty bucks a film.
