Columbia hopes this film can outsell both its MEN IN BLACK and Disney's THE LION KING to become not only the best-selling DVD of all time (currently MIB), but the best selling home video release of any format (currently LION KING). No word yet on if the studio plans to milk the DVD with various re-releases a la MEN IN BLACK.
