‘Ryan’s’ next attack: sell-through market

Two-tape, limited edition includes docu

After scoring a solid victory as a rental, Steven Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan” plans to conquer the sell-through market on Nov. 2 as a limited edition.

The WWII epic, to be released as a two-tape set, will include a message from Spielberg about D-Day and the National D-Day Museum as well as a documentary on the making of the movie, with interviews with the cast and crew.

Pic will retail for $24.99. There are no plans for a DVD yet, which falls in line with DreamWorks’ vid release pattern.

“Ryan” has raked in $44 million since its release on video. It became the most successful rental debut ever, raking in $9.6 million in its first week, according to VidTrac. The pic earned $216 million at the domestic B.O.

Vidbows of “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” and “The Mummy” are also expected in the fourth quarter. And insiders have noted that “Tarzan” may bow during the holiday season.
