And finally, Warners has announced the release date for Hamlet (1996) as a 2 disc set (also being released in HD-DVD and Blu-Ray) on 8/14. This will be the first time the film's been on DVD and it's long overdue. They're also including it in a Shakespeare box set on the same date; click here for more details. I have to say that this is the first HD release that will seriously tempt me to make the HD disc plunge.
