Cloverfield DVD Release Date 4/22?

Sorry its been a while since posted. I have not forgotten about the blog its just that JJ Abrams love of secrecy makes it very difficult to get new information about any of his projects. For example, the release date of the Cloverfield DVD.

Nowadays the average turnaround time from theatre to street date is about 4-6 months. Long before that though, to get interest going and so forth, the DVD release date is announced. Amazon is usually awesome for getting preliminary release dates way in advance of most places but in this case absolutely nada.

However, due to my love of DVD Steelbook, it appears that is possible that a date has been set and Cloverfield will get a steelcase via Trans World Entertainment Corp (Fye, Wherehouse Music, Suncoast and others). Steelbooks are metal cases for DVD releases that usually cost about $5 more. Canada has been enjoying them for a while but its now just a new thing in the states. I think its worth the little extra cost.

So based on a forum I monitor to know about upcoming new Steelbook releases, the preliminary release date for Cloverfield is 4/22/08. That is a rumor and could change once something official is announced (hopefully soon).
