UK release of THE LIBERTINE DVD delayed to May 8, 2006

Gilbert’s Girl reports that the DVD release of Laurence Dunmore’s THE LIBERTINE has been postponed five weeks, from April 3, 2006 to May 8, 2006. No reason was given for the delay. UK residents will have to wait a bit longer to view Johnny Depp’s performance as the Earl of Rochester in the comfort of their own homes. North American Deppheads, meanwhile, are still awaiting the chance to see THE LIBERTINE in theaters. The Weinstein Co. is still promising a nationwide release of THE LIBERTINE on March 10th; we earnestly hope they keep that promise!

At this time, there is no DVD release of THE LIBERTINE scheduled for region 1. However, DeepinDepp reports that keeps a “waiting list” for films not yet available on DVD; this not only allows Amazon to notify potential customers when a requested film becomes available, but it also functions as an informal poll or petition. Amazon’s message says, “The studio is currently not producing this title, but to be notified when it is available, enter your e-mail address at right. You’ll also be voting for this release; we’ll let the studio know how many customers are waiting for this title.” To vote for THE LIBERTINE, click HERE. The Zone thanks Gilbert’s Girl and DeepinDepp for the updates.
