Thinking Outside the Box Office

WIRED: Why did you decide to release Bubble in all formats at once?
SODERBERGH:
Name any big-title movie that’s come out in the last four years. It has been available in all formats on the day of release. It’s called piracy. Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings, Ocean’s Eleven, and Ocean’s Twelve – I saw them on Canal Street on opening day. Simultaneous release is already here. We’re just trying to gain control over it. §

Glad to see somebody’s on the right track of things. :) Seriously, I think its a lot sensible to create low-cost DVDs — and make less money than now — rather than make high-cost DVDs and then spend all that money trying to curb piracy and make all these draconian laws!

If the price is right, original DVD are always preferred — coz they are legal … and well, original. With pirated DVDs you always have the risk that the movie might be cut or not have a good quality or may be simply be non-working.
