Dreamworks in April? (and another rumour)
A brief update this morning as I've got to rush out in a minute - I'll be back this afternoon with a couple of new announcements.
I've been hearing rumbles on the grapevine that we could finally be seeing Dreamworks entering the UK market in April 2001. I don't have a lot of information to go on at the moment, but according to my contact the first titles will appear in April and one of them will be American Beauty.
This is all unconfirmed at the moment, but I'll be looking into it in more detail after the weekend.
The other rumbling I've heard is that Star Wars: Episode 1 could be on for a January (or at the very least a 1st Quarter 2001) release. Current details are sketchy at best, but one source has mentioned there will be '200 new effects shots' whatever that means. The same source also mentioned that the original (and far superior) trilogy will also be making an appearance towards the end of next year. Not really very big news any more, but I thought you may be interested!
