Once an item has been formally recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, it becomes illegal to sell that item. Yet the CPSC reports that Best Buy, Magnolia, Best Buy Private Auction, CowBoom, and TechLiquidators continued to sell products that had already been recalled in 2012 and 2013. [More]
Magnolia Pictures, the company behind the botched US release of the DVD of Let The Right One In, isn’t backing down from its claim that the new simplified subtitles are just fine. In fact, this internal communication from a Magnolia rep to a Canadian distributor shows just how little they care about how their core fans feel.
After Icons of Fright pointed out that the US DVD and Blu-ray release of Let The Right One In shipped with oversimplified subtitles instead of the ones in the theatrical release, The Digital Bits contacted distributor Magnet Films to ask what was going on. Magnet responded that they’ll release an updated version clearly marked as having the theatrical subtitles, but they won’t exchange any current discs.
