It looks like trying to get any peek at the new DVD before January 2nd is extremely difficult. Today, while contacting an employee at Image Entertainment, the distribution company for “Beneath the Skin”, he told me that not even the employees at the distribution house are permitted to handle the release until after the busy holidays.
“The disc is manufactured but the holidays are keeping everything tight and we are not allowed to touch the Cranberries title until next week,” said Burgess Wilson, an Image representative.
Even those that have ordered it directly from DVDPlanet.com, the online retail branch of Image, will probably not receive it early. For those, “it will probably show up the week of [January 2nd],” said Wilson. He concluded, “Better on time than never.”
