    Maybe "tent-pole extravagana" means that the movie is so awesome, all the guys in the audience will be popping huge boners over it?

    Movies are just big commercials for the DvDs nowadays; DvDs are where the studios make most of their $$$.

    I work in a grocery store, so I'll get my copy the night the DVD goes on sale. Yes, we sell movies. Talk about sneaky.

    ALL big summer movies come out on DVD in time for Christmas. Pirates, SM3, Shr3k, TFs, Potter and a half dozen others will all get their WM cube in Nov.-Dec.

    Hows so, I bet pirates made more money in the box office than it probably did the day it came out on DVD. Well, All I can say is their is probably no way the DVD of TF will sell more than it made in the box office, I mean curiosity kills the cat.

    Actually, I meant to say in my previous post, I'll get my copy of the movie the night before it goes on sale.

    Nope, theatre box office $$$ are shared with the theatre chain themselves while over-seas B.O. $$$, the studio gets even less of a cut since they sell that to local distributors.

    DvD on the other hand is pure profit and with how much better home theatre systems are getting, it's no wonder the DvD market is huge. EXAMPLE: Big reason why Kevin Smith still gets to make flics even though his box office numbers were never big, i.e. his DvDs sell very well.

    EDIT: the only reason why Uwe Boll gets to make movies is because of German tax dodge laws that more or less lead to a "The Producers" type situation.

    It's a possibility if the movie doesn't go well... but hey, if it gets released on DVD around Christmas, then I can pester my brother into getting it for me! Ha, ha, ha, ha!
