Warner Bros delays UK DVD/Blu-ray release of The Ward
By Fredy on May 6, 2011 | Filed in: The Ward | With 1 Comment »
 

Extremely sad news for all of us expecting to finally see John Carpenter’s The Ward this month.

Warner Bros told Dan of the Geek:

“The current Blu-ray and DVD configurations of The Ward are not in the preferred aspect ratio of Warner Home Video UK. In order to release The Ward in the theatrically shot aspect ratio of 2.35 we are moving the release date to October 10th 2011.”

Those are five months right there. It is a lot better than releasing the film in the wrong aspect ratio, but it’s still a long time. Guess we’ll have to wait for the US DVD/Blu-ray release in August now.

T-Mobile Celebrates Sidekick 4G Launch

Did you enjoy The Shunning?

If you did and want to see the rest of the three-part series be sure to let Hallmark know! And if you couldn’t see it yesterday or just want to see it again here’s the movie schedule for today and next week:

TODAY, April 17 – 8/7c

Friday, April 22 – 9/8c

Sunday, April 24 – 5/4c

Here’s another small interview Danielle did for Reno-Gazette Journal, and a short behind-the-scenes video. Thanks so much to our visitor/contributor Christian for letting us know:

For a few odd moments in “The Shunning,” Katie Lapp experiences being … well, ordinary.

“She’s not used to blending in,” said Danielle Panabaker, who plays her. “She suddenly has that sense of anonymity. She doesn’t have to worry about whether people are looking at her.”

And yes, Panabaker understands why that would be a pleasure.

For Katie, the attention starts with her clothes. She’s spent her life in Amish garb; her one experiment of changing clothes feels like a revelation.

For Panabaker, it starts with her career.

An actress for nine of her 23 years, she’s used to being noticed.

“It started when I worked a lot for Disney,” she said. “Kids respond to actors in different ways.”

Still, there are times and places when she can go unnoticed. And there are roles she can sink into.

On a surface level, the notion of being Amish seems staggering.

“It’s amazing to exist without a cell phone. … I don’t tweet, but if I didn’t have a Blackberry, I wouldn’t know what to do,” Panabaker said.

Still, she said, those devices have a hidden impact.

“The quality of a relationship changes; relationships become polluted,” she said.

By comparison, the Amish have direct lives. Many have a custom of living as non-Amish, during a bridge between childhood and the adult years.

“My assumption was that kids would just love it, but 85 to 90 percent of them come right back,” Panabaker said.
