Vid, DVD ‘Traffic’ flows

Pic generates record number of orders

HOLLYWOOD — There’s no bottleneck with “Traffic” at USA Home Entertainment.

The Academy Award-winning film has generated a record number of orders for USA on both videocassette and DVD, which are being released Tuesday.

A spokesman for USA said the supplier is shipping more than 1 million videocassettes to retailers through traditional and revenue-sharing programs and more than twice that number — 2 million — on DVD.

“I am ecstatic over the results of ‘Traffic’s’ DVD and VHS release,” said USA exec VP and general manager Joe Amodei. “It goes to show how the marketplace will support a truly great work of art.”
