Columbia releases ‘Fantasy’ vid Oct. 23

Studio plans elaborate double-disc DVD

Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment has announced the Oct. 23 video release of “Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within” less than four weeks after the movie opened at theaters.

The second summer movie based on a videogame has grossed $32 million, less than a fourth of the $130 million generated by Paramount’s “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider,” which is also expected to be released on video in the fourth quarter.

The studio is proceeding with plans for an elaborate double-disc special DVD edition, which may be better suited to the digital origins of the movie.
