update from the gregster's site.

"The PDL DVD drops 2 places to #10 on the DVD/VHS rental chart for the week ending August 3rd. PDL earned $5.71 million in rental revenue for the week. Total revenue now stands at $50.5 million."

and who said pdl was not going to make money.

i think one of the Muppet DVD's has a commentary by Kermit tne Frog and Miss Piggy........seriously


I believe it was 'Muppets in Space'. I'm sure the 'Space Jam' DVD has Bugs Bunny commenatry but I'll have to check....

does the 25 mil figure in the cost to do the whole video/dvd process?

has anyone dared to watch the pan and scan VHS version?
i wondered how much it sucked.

umm.......that makes me wonder how much of the 25 mil went to the cast's salaries

Luis Guzman doesn't work for less than $8 million per movie. But he's worth every penny.

seems a little excessive, i know he's a good actor, but you've seen the roles he's in. in magnolia, he has probably 10 mins of footage. jeez, film industry is a bastard.

On a previous episode of "St. Elsewhere," I babbled:

I would be remiss if i didn't point out that I was being just a wee bit facetious with that statement. I'm sure Luis doesn't get anywhere near that much per film. ... I am clearly not the person to attempt to make definitive statements in this matter, as I have utterly no knowledge of the pay scale for supporting characters in major motion pictures.

Um, I think that's it...

With the roles he gets, I thought he'd get paid in pounds of trail mix.

I bought the PDL DVD today.  I wanted it in a hard plastic case, so I waited until Hollywood Video started selling used copies.  No booklet.

The upcoming Australasian 'P-DL' DVD and VHS is only in widescreen. Not often is a new release video ONLY in widescreen. Just wondering, is the US video only in widescreen?

Yep.
