    it has something to do with the rental window
    W bros did not want the film to comeout on rental & sell through
    saying their was losing money on it

    i think it is a load of BULL , it is a top film,and the guy won an Oscar ,so their are trying to milk it for everything it is worth

    basically rental videos and DVD's cost abou £100 each so the rental companys can rent it before it comes out, make there money then sell it an make money, with the sell through version coming out at the same time they don't make any money coz every one buys it. hope that sorted things out.

    It's only £15.99 in the supermarket so I doubt whether Blockbuster will be paying more

    They will because they will be buying the rental versions, with no features etc, that is why blockbuster and other rental firms are refusing to stock warner product.

    i think rental versions cost blockbusters about 200 pounds a film
    and then their sell it for about 10 pounds on exrental sale

    their are selling a lot of the rental films at 20 pounds for 3 films
    i think that is pretty cheap alot of them are the the lateast release
    and not all of them are rental only movies
