‘Smile’ quick to DVD

Distrib's titles have seen greater homevid spending

In keeping with the strategy of the two companies to release many of their films very quickly to DVD, Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment has set a release date of March 9 for Revolution Studios’ “Mona Lisa Smile,” just 81 days, or 11½ weeks, after its theatrical debut.

So far the Julia Roberts starrer has grossed about $60 million at theaters.

Last year the companies released “Maid in Manhattan” and “Tears of the Sun” to DVD with unusually short three-month windows. Consumers spent $20 million more on the homevideo version of “Maid in Manhattan” — $113 million — than they spent on the movie in theaters.

The DVD version of “Mona Lisa Smile” will include several featurettes and an Elton John musicvideo of his Golden Globe-nominated song “The Heart of Every Girl.”
