300 Reviews, Release News, Weekend Box Office

 

First off with today's update, DVDlaunch has now passed the 300 review mark. I'd like to thank my staff for all their continued hard work and reviews, and I think only being in existance for nearly eleven months, 300 reviews is a pretty big accomplishment. As always, DVDlaunch will continue to bring you the latest DVD reviews, news and we look forward to having you part of the journey. Hopefully.

Now, on to some pretty big release news... it's the one all you DVD fans have been waiting for! HBO has finally announced a November 6th date for The Sopranos: The Complete Second Season. The set will retail for 99.98 and feature all the season two episodes in anamorphic widescreen with English Dolby Digital 5.1, English Dolby Surround, French Stereo and Spanish Stereo. Extras include four commentaries for selected episodes with their respective directors, that being Tim Van Patten, Henry J. Bronchtein, Allen Coulter and John Patterson, cast and crew interviews, a featurette called "The Real Deal" that has discussions about the show with FBI agents, critics, psychiatrists and other experts, episode synopses, first season recap, episode index, cast and crew bios, previews and weblinks. Sounds like quite a nice set, and this further shows how expensive the fall is going to be. Check out the preview art below:

Okay, big site update, big release news and big box office. As expected, Tim Burton's revisit of Planet Of The Apes took the number one spot with a whopping, record breaking 69.6 million dollars. If that holds up until Tuesday, it would have broken "The Mummy Returns" record for the biggest non-holiday opener ever. Wow. It's been a pretty big summer... in second was Jurassic Park III which dropped to second with a still healthy 22.5 million. America's Sweethearts took third with 15.7 million, Legally Blonde with 9 million and The Score with 7.1 million for fifth place.

Cats & Dogs was sixth with 4.5 million, Dr. Dolittle 2 passed 100 million with 4.2, while rounding out the top ten were The Fast And The Furious with 3.8 million, Scary Movie 2 with 2.6 million and Shrek with 1.7 million. Also, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within dropped out of the top ten, and is definently one the summer's biggest duds. So, quite a big update today... 300 reviews, Sopranos and mega box office... enjoy the madness everyone!
