by Tim Buel
November 15, 2013
On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by guest Vince Mancini of FilmDrunk to go through their latest picks of the week, the newest DVD & Blu-ray releases and much more. The main topic of the night was an in-depth discussion on Release Dates, in honor of Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street being moved from its original release this very weekend. The guys talk over common reasoning for date changes and how this can affect the final product. They also discuss how film marketing has evolved to rely heavily on the importance of a release date and what that means for many films to come.

In my opinion there is definitely something to releasing the right films at the right time. I don't think it is a coincidence that Avatar and Titanic both opened on the same weekend and both became the highest grossing films of all time. Return of the King also had that same date and at the time, became the 2nd highest grossing film of all time and the 2nd film to ever hit $1 billion. I had been saying that Disney would give Star Wars Episode 7 that release date(December 18th, 2015) for months.

Everything is stable and what is happening as the inherent right orbit.

Cool guest! I totally agree with what you said about awards movies and especially the fact that people put them on their favorites lists and then never re-watch them. Such hypocrites! A favorite to me is something you can re-watch ad nauseam (expect it never gets nauseating). Also enjoyed the main topic. Good job.

I think Spider-Man originally had a big bank robbery scene that involved the World Trade Center. I distinctly remember a trailer based around that being pulled right after 9/11.
