9. Lion King (And Other Disney Films)
We all know the standard way films are released: there's a media blitz making sure that every soda can, television show and billboard is letting us know the BIG NEW MOVIE IS COMING OUT. Then it's in theatres for a short while, then you pine after it and eventually it hits whatever VOD services the producers have a deal with, then Blu-Ray and... DVD? Are we still doing DVD?
That's the way it is. You want a copy, you can go on Netflix or Amazon or look through the dollar bins at your local Wal-Mart. Well, mostly, anyway.
Some films aren't released those same ways, though. Some films are released as spectacles, or tossed out in a hurry, or like covert ops, or even never at all...
