THE INSIDER recounts the chain of events that pitted an ordinary man against the tobacco industry and dragged two people into the fight of their lives. Academy Award®-winner Al Pacino (1992 Best Actor for Scent of a Woman) gives a powerful performance as veteran 60 Minutes producer Lowell Bergman and Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe (2000 Best Actor for Gladiator) co-stars as the ultimate insider, former tobacco executive Dr. Jeffrey Wigand. When Wigand is fired by his employer — one of the largest tobacco companies in America — he agrees to become a paid consultant for a story Bergman is working on regarding alleged unethical practices within the tobacco industry. But what begins as a temporary alliance leads to a lengthy battle for both men to save their reputations, and much, much more. As they soon find out, Corporate America will use all legal means at its disposal to save a billion-dollar-a-year habit. And as the corporate giants soon find out, Bergman and Wigand are honorable men, driven to smoke out the evidence. Also starring Academy Award®-winner Christopher Plummer (2011 Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for Beginners) as anchor Mike Wallace and Gina Gershon, THE INSIDER will chill you with its cold, hard edge — and thrill you with its unbelievable twists and turns.

  3. Brian says:

    What ever happened to the Blu-ray of “While You Were Sleeping”? It was originally on the schedule for the end of the year last year and then it vanished.

  4. What happened to “The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh” being released in Spring 2013? http://www.dvdizzy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=30011

  5. TTY says:

    Hunchback! I have been waiting for this for years and recently was lamenting the fact that it hadn’t been rereleased. Now just waiting for Atlantis and Hercules.

    Of these releases, these are the necessities for my shelf:
    Peter Pan: Diamond Edition
    Monsters, Inc
    The Hunchback of Notre Dame/The Hunchback of Notre Dame II: 2-Movie Collection
    Mulan/Mulan II: 2-Movie Collection
    Who Framed Roger Rabbit
    I could honestly do without the 2-Movie Collection packs as I have no desire to own the dreadful direct-to-video sequels that come bundled with the first films, but I’ll purchase the collections if that’s what it takes to own the originals. I’m the most thrilled to scoop up Who Framed Roger Rabbit, I’ve been putting off my purchase of that film for the past few years in anticipation of its Blu Ray release.

  7. Keith James says:

    Are there any plans to release a DVD version of the 1946 classic SONG OF THE SOUTH
