D’Works finally goes DVD

Three titles skedded for holidays

DreamWorks, which had been the last major studio to withhold support of the open digital videodisc format, has finally come on board with the new home entertainment system, announcing plans to release three film titles in time for the holidays.

The first wave of DreamWorks’ DVD releases will comprise “Mousehunt,” “The Peacemaker” and “Small Soldiers.” The studio did not provide a precise date, but said the discs would be in stores in December.

The studio has not yet determined a price for the DVD titles. A second batch of releases will include “Paulie” and Steven Spielberg’s “Amistad.”

A DreamWorks representative said the studio would determine future releases on a case-by-case basis. The studio previously announced its support of the alternative Divx videodisc format, under which it will sell “Amistad,” “Mousehunt” and “Peacemaker.”
