    While it's been receiving limited screenings in a couple of cities across the country recently, Wayne Coyne's long-awaited Christmas on Mars movie will not receive a traditional film release. Instead, Warner Bros. has announced plans to press it in DVD form on November 11, along with a special edition that includes the Flaming Lips's original score on a CD. In a Billboard interview earlier this year, Coyne described it as sounding "very much like Bernard Herrmann in a room with Igor Stravinsky, and they hashed out, you take this scene, I'll take this scene."

    As for bonus features on the DVD, they include behind the scenes footage, Russian subtitles and an outtake or two.

    Christmas on Mars score:
    1. Once Beyond Hopelessness
    2. The Distance Between Mars And The Earth -- Part One
    3. The Horrors Of Isolation: The Celestial Dissolve, Triumphant Hallucination, Light Being Absorbed
    4. In Excelsior Vaginalistic
    5. Your Spaceship Comes From Within
    6. Suicide And Extraordinary Mistakes
    7. The Distance Between Mars And The Earth -- Part Two
    8. The Secret Of Immortality: This Strange Feeling, This Impossible World
    9. The Gleaming Armament Of Marching Genitalia
    10. The Distress Signals Of Celestial Objects
    11. Space Bible With Volume Lumps
    12. Once Beyond Hopelessness
