Projections: 'Hatfields & McCoys' Set to Emerge6 Aug, 2012 By: John Latchem
With relatively few new theatrical titles hitting disc of late, the biggest new release July 31 is Hatfields & McCoys, the hit History Channel miniseries on disc from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. A relative lack of major competition should push Hatfields & McCoys to the top of the sales chart.
On the rental side, Hatfields & McCoys isn’t available at top rental outlet Redbox, which likely will keep it off the charts. Redbox does have an exclusive early rental window on Anchor Bay’s Piranha DD, which doesn’t street widely until Sept. 4.
