Hope Springs, The Third Wheel and Dragon Lord from Buena Vista
Buena Vista Home Entertainment has announced the Region 1 DVD release of Hope Springs for 6th April 2004 with a retail price of $29.99. This romantic comedy starring Colin Firth, Minnie Driver and Heather Graham will offer the following features on DVD:
- 2.35:1 Anamorphic Widescreen transfer
- English DD5.1 Surround
- English and Spanish subtitles
- "The Making Of Hope Springs" featurette
Jackie Chan’s Dragon Lord is up next and will arrive on 11th May 2004. This classic slice of martial arts action from Jackie’s long-missed Hong Kong era will feature an Anamorphic widescreen transfer with DD5.1 Surround audio, and though no language is specified we're guessing it will feature an English dub only. It's also worth pointing out the aspect ratio is listed as 1.85:1 when it should be 2.35:1, and the running time is a rather paltry 86mins (the UK HKL release, even with PAL speedup, clocks in at 92mins). Retail is once again $29.99.
