Dolores Claiborne arrives on 5th August 2003 with a retail price of $14.98.

Pool Hall Junkies arrives on 26th August 2003 with a $26.98 retail price. Rack up this 2003 theatrical release featuring an all-star cast including Chazz Palminteri and Christopher Walken. When Johnny, a poolhall hustler, tries to quit the game, it's not as easy as he thinks. And when his younger brother gets hooked into a con that could cost his brother's life, Johnny is forced to play for the biggest stake of his career. It's bigger than money, bigger than life, and bigger than either player can imagine.

Cobb arrives on 2nd September 2003 with a retail price of $19.98. Tyrus Raymond Cobb played baseball like a man charging a machine-gun nest. He gave no quarter, took no prisoners. And when his Hall of Fame career was over, Ty Cobb attacked life the same way. Tommy Lee Jones portrays the legendary - and equally cheered and detested - Georgia Peach in this acclaimed film from writer/director Ron Shelton (Bull Durham, Dark Blue), also starring Robert Wuhl and Lolita Davidovich. From its recapturing of the outfielder's playing days (Roger Clemens portrays a rival pitcher) to its recreation of a 1961 Hall of Fame banquet, Cobb is a movie grand slam.

Arriving 7th October 2003, the same day as the new SE release of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (see here), is a new Widescreen edition of Vegas Vacation with a retail price of $19.98. The Griswold family hits the road again for a typically ill-fated vacation, this time to the glitzy mecca of slots and showgirls, Las Vegas.
