Shut that Window – On platform release dates for movies

Speaking of Disney, the film wing is in the news today for its proposals to release Tim Burton’s 3D extravaganza “Alice in Wonderland” early on DVD, i.e. in less than four month’s after its theatrical release, a date reached by gentlemen’s agreement betwixt studio and exhibitor. In return, major exhibitors are planning to boycott the release of the film unless Disney backs down. Zeitgeist has reported on the narrowing of release windows and its implications before. Variety, and the following day the FT, have more.

UPDATE: In related news, Ridley Scott Associates are planning with Philips to premiere select films online. The tide is definitely turning toward a time when a film is released simultaneously on multiple platforms.

UPDATE: Odeon cinemas will not be showing “Alice in Wonderland”, according to the BBC.
