Comment: Re: SHK 11.14701 Almereyda Hamlet on Video
Hamlet is currently scheduled for release to DVD and home video (high
price) on November 14, 2000. Most films are released at high price for
the rental market and drop in price for home distribution about 6 months
to a year later.
The Julie Taymor Titus will be released on high price rental video on
August 15, with DVD coming out at about $25-30 Canadian at the same
time. It looks wonderful - with director commentary, additional
footage, interviews with cast and crew.
Now if we could only get the Branagh Hamlet on DVD, all would be well in
