Early December titles from Columbia Tristar
have now revealed the details on several Region 1 DVD releases due on 2nd December 2003. Continuing with their line of foreign movie releases we have The Cuckoo, a story of three unlikely roommates - a Finn, a Russian and a Lapp – who overcome both comic and tragic misunderstandings during World War II to form a passionate three-way...relationship. Presented in 1.85:1 Anamorphic Widescreen with the original Russian/Finnish/Lapp DD5.1 Surround audio track you will also find both English and French subtitles present. Retail is $29.95.
Also due are three catalogue titles with a retail price of $24.96 each. Presented in their original aspect ratios with Anamorphic Enhancement where necessary the only extras on each disc are trailers for other titles. The Horsemen stars Omar Sharif in this exciting action-drama set in the majestic Afghan mountains where Bozkeshi, one of the roughest sports in the world, is more than a contest – it’s a way of life and a code of honour. Ship of Fools sees Vivien Leigh and Simone Signoret headline a stellar cast in the acclaimed drama about German exiles who are not allowed to anchor at American ports, while There's A Girl In My Soup sees Peter Sellers and Goldie Hawn join forces in a saucy romance about an amorous gourmet whose goose is cooked when he falls for a giddy young temptress.
Rounding out the new titles from Columbia Tristar is a new single-disc/film-only release of Punch-Drunk Love that will retail at $19.95.
