Leatherheads (R2) in August
Universal Pictures have scheduled the UK Region 2 DVD release of Leatherheads on 18th August 2008. George Clooney’s 1930s style screwball comedy stars Clooney as Dodge Connolly, a brazen yet charming American Football captain who is determined to guide his team to glory. However, his plans suffer a major blow when the players lose their sponsor and the future of the entire league is subsequently thrown into doubt. But when Dodge convinces college football star Carter Rutherford (John Krasinski) to join the team, he hopes that the struggling new sport will finally capture the nation's attention. Carter is a war hero who single-handedly forced a group of German soldiers to surrender in the First World War. His good looks and incredible speed on the field make him seem almost too good to be true, and reporter Lexie Littleton (Renee Zellweger) sets out to prove just that.
Full details are TBC, though a commentary has already been passed by the BBFC so expect that to be on the disc.
