‘Clones’ DVD May Hit Stores Quickly
The new “Star Wars” movie is hitting DVD at light speed compared with “The Phantom Menace.”
“Star Wars: Episode II ó Attack of the Clones” will be available on DVD this fall, the franchise’s creator, George Lucas, said last week in an interview at his film headquarters, Skywalker Ranch.
“Episode I ó The Phantom Menace” came out on videotape early in 2000, about 10 months after the film’s theatrical debut, but the DVD version was not released until a year and a half later. The delay resulted because Lucas was particular about refining deleted material and other DVD bonuses and was busy working on “Episode II.”
Lucas said he’d rather hold off on the “Attack of the Clones” DVD, as well, so he could spend more time tweaking the bonus material.
“But everybody says, `Oh, it’s so much more powerful if you bring it out in the same year as the movie,'” Lucas said. “So we’re doing our best to do that.”
Unfortunately for “Star Wars” fans, the original trilogy will not land on DVD until after Lucas finishes “Episode III,” due out in 2005, he said.

LETS MAKE THIS “WEEZER WEDNESDAY!!!”
After a dispute with Geffen/Interscope over the release of its next album, Weezer has returned with its awesome fourth studio set, “Maladroit.” Earlier this year, the group enraged the label when it made a number of the “Maladroit” songs available online and personally sent radio stations and publications an eight-track “preview” disc. Several tracks garnered immediate airplay, particularly “Dope Nose,” which is No. 9 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Tracks chart.
That aside, “Maladroit” injects a bit more variety into the irresistibly catchy, pop/punk style of last year’s self-titled “Green” album, which has sold more than 1.3 million copies in the U.S., according to SoundScan. Cuomo says he’s fallen deep into the songwriting zone, doubting himself less and trusting the muse more often. As a result, he’s no longer afraid to wear his love for ’80s metal (heard on tracks such as “Fall Together”) on his sleeve. Guitarist Brian Bell says, “Rivers has just unleashed the shredding beast in himself.”
“It’s been there all along, and I’ve had to consciously repress it on our first three records,” Cuomo says with a laugh. “I had to force myself not to bust out with Scorpions riffs. And, at this point in my life, I really don’t want to force anything anymore. I just wanna let it all hang out. So, on [“Maladroit”], it all just came pouring out.” The band is on tour in Japan through late May but is expected to hit North America this summer.

It’s another big day for DVD and video releases. That said, some of the worst films ever made (Corky Romano) are also available today (Corky Romano), but I don’t want to say which ones (Corky Romano) as film enjoyment is subjective.
