Update 2: This movie is not available in the Exchange here in Germany. Anyone seen it in stores stateside?
UPDATE: There just aren't any good new movie releases out this week except this one. And for every one sold thru Mudville we'll donate our proceeds to Fisher House too. (Yes - even those who pre-ordered weeks ago.)
From USA Today:
Most DVDs begin with a harsh anti-piracy warning from the FBI. Gunner Palace, a documentary that depicts the lives of young American soldiers in and around Baghdad, starts differently.Greyhawk interviewed filmaker Michael Tucker here on the opening weekend of Gunner Palace. He talks about Iraq, the blogosphere, and controversy surrounding his movie.
Released on video and DVD Tuesday, the film from director Michael Tucker greets viewers with a note of appreciation: "Purchasing this video helps military families."
Tucker and the film's distributor, Palm Pictures, have teamed up to support the Fisher House Foundation, a group that offers affordable lodging to more than 8,500 families annually when soldiers are being treated at major military and Veterans Affairs medical centers.
Does it count if I pre-ordered on Amazon a month or so ago after reading about it on your site (it shipped yesterday)? Just asking...Posted by MissBirdlegs in AL at June 28, 2005 11:50 PM
Yup. Thanks for asking - updated the post to make that clear.Posted by Greyhawk at June 29, 2005 12:23 AM
It was in my local Borders (Tampa) last night...in the stand right at the registers...
I got my two copies the day before yesterday from Amazon early order. One will be headed to a local NG unit this weekend...Posted by Curt at June 30, 2005 09:42 PM
I have checked around Burlington, VT (but not thoroughly). Nadda so far. Couldn't find it at Best Buy or COSTCO. Would like a couple of copies. Charlie Mike.Posted by GreyEagleO6 at July 1, 2005 01:44 AM
I had to get the guy at Best Buy in Westwood CA to go into the back and get it for me. He knew exactly which movie I meant, it just wasn't on the floor and not displayed on the new releases rack, which was very disappointing.Posted by Charles at July 1, 2005 11:33 AM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(5) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
