DVD Sales Sank in 2010; 'Spider-Man' 2.0 Begins Previews

• A report from SNL Kagan says that studio shipments of DVDs fell 43.8 percent last year. Check it out at Deadline.

• A reason for the decline in DVD sales is the growth of subscription services, such as Netflix or VOD. In fact, Bloomberg reported the DISH Network, is considering launching a VOD service to make films available roughly eight weeks after their theatrical debut.

• After a three-and-half week hiatus, the new version of Broadway's "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" started preview performances last night. The New York Times has the story.

• Norma Zimmer, singer and the "Champagne Lady" of "The Lawrence Welk Show," died on Wednesday at the age of 87. Zimmer appeared several times on films and television shows. In Disney's "Alice in Wonderland," she was the voice of the White Rose.  Read her obituary at The New York Times.
