<I>Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle</I> Is Speeding to Video Shelves Oct. 2129 Jul, 2003 By: Jessica Wolf
The butt-kicking, leather-clad ladies of Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle are ready for a round on video, beginning Oct. 21 (prebook Sept. 23).
The $93.1 million box office sequel arrives on DVD from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment in both rated and unrated versions ($27.94 each). VHS is rental-priced.
“There were some scenes that were a little harder, a little racier than the ‘PG-13' rating,” said Marshall Forster, Columbia TriStar EVP of North America. “Anytime you have added footage and you can release two versions, you do it.”
Both film versions are loaded with extras on DVD, including play-by-play commentary from director McG.
Also included is Pink's music video “Feel Good Time,” a “Cameo-Graphy” featurette and a play-along trivia track for viewers to test their knowledge of the many Hollywood ‘A'-listers who made cameos in the film.
“We're very excited about this DVD,” Forster said. “Added-value features are important to the consumer and they're important to us.”
By the time the DVD streets, the studio fully expects Full Throttle to reach $100 million box office, Forster said.
The four-month theatrical-to-video window for the title is in line with industry trends and allows Columbia TriStar to start the fourth quarter off with a bang.
“The most important thing you can do for a title is get the right date,” Forster said.Columbia TriStar has instituted a presell policy for Full Throttle. Retailers may start taking preorders from consumers Aug. 11.
