Regal to stand firm on movie, DVD window
The "window" between a movie's theatrical release and its DVD release
will keep shrinking, but the top U.S. movie theater chain will take
strong measures to ensure it never collapses, Regal Entertainment Group
Chief Executive Michael Campbell said on Wednesday.

What "strong measures?" Is Campbell threatening to hold his breath until
his face turns blue? I work in this business, and I can tell you: NOBODY

will do EXACTLY as they please, and the theatres (including chains like
Regal) will bend over and TAKE IT.
Well, whaddaya know? War WAS the answer, after all. Go figure.
