Re: TFAW says DVD/Blu-ray sooner than you think...

^ I really believe that this is a scam just to get a jump on the pre-order cash because they are the only ones offering a pre-order on it. The fact is that if there was a a 7/29 release date on this Amazon would already be taking pre-orders on it at at least 30% off list and I highly doubt the list on this will be $50 (more likely the list price is $39.99).

And that's exactly what they are expecting you to do. Don't fall for it.

Re: TFAW says DVD/Blu-ray sooner than you think...

I sincerely doubt it'll be released on home video any earlier than Labor Day. Seriously. Putting it on DVD and BluRay that early would just eat into box office and drive the movie's performance down.

Not too likely IMHO; I'd say late October/early November.

Expect a Christmas Season DVD/Blu Ray release and for the record if you haven't gone Blu Ray yet, now you got a reason (that and everything that' coming out in 2 weeks).

Not only that, these TFAW jokers are rapists. They put this bogus release date out to take advantage of all the Trek geeks who will impulsively pay right now $40 for an item that will be $25 at Wal Mart on its actual release date.

I don't buy anything pre-order for that very reason. Also, because I don't like the idea of them getting my money now for something that I'll get a half a year from now.

That actually sounds plausible, given that they delayed the film a year to begin with. I'm sure that they used the time in part to ready the print for commercial distribution. That, and films are simply easier to transfer these days.

I tend to agree. I realize this isn't etched in stone, but that would be really fantastic if it IS released in the summer and not at Thanksgiving.

If you hope the OP's information is correct, that would mean Star Trek was a massive failure at the box office.

So, Things from Another World just updated their website with new products for July (from the latest Previews catalogue). And they have listings for:for release on July 29th, 2009.


I seriously doubt that date will be the actual release date, but if it is, is that the quickest theatre-to-home-video release ever?
WHAT,WHAT,WHAT!?!?! no EXTENDED CUT PLATINUM LIMITED DELUXE ULTRA DIRECTORS EDITION? UH-UH I'm not buying!

Do I have to repeat myself?

That would be less than three months from theatrical release to home purchase. That time frame doesn't tell you anything?

This thread is pointless...the DVD/BD is NOT being released in July.
