"A GLOOMY, FANTASTICAL UNIVERSE FILLED WITH GNARLED TREES, WICKED THORNBUSHES, CLAMMY MISTS, TORTUROUS PATHS ... THE MOVIE HAS AN UNCANNY HYPNOTIC FORCE ..." – Roger Ebert

Fascinating and imaginative, this riveting thriller from director Neil Jordan (Interview With The Vampire) brings the timeless tale of "Little Red Riding Hood" and werewolf fables together in a haunting, compelling and eerie way.

A wise grandmother (Angela Lansbury) tells her granddaughter Rosaleen (Sarah Patterson) a disturbing tale of innocent maidens falling in love with handsome strangers ... and of their sudden mysterious disappearances when the moon is full and accompanied by the strange sound of a beast in the woods. Nominated for four BAFTA awards including Best Costume Design, Best Make Up Artist, Best Production Design/Art Direction and Best Special Visual Effects, The Company Of Wolves is a tale that will chill you like no other ... NOVEMBER 22.

Rollerball - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray
 

In the future, there are no wars. There is no crime. There is only ... the Game. In a world where ruthless corporations reign supreme, this vicious and barbaric "sport" is the only outlet for the pent-up anger and frustrations of the masses.

Tuned to their televisions, the people watch "Rollerball": a brutal mutation of football, motocross, and hockey. Jonathan E. (the great James Caan, The Godfather, Thief) is the champion player – a man too talented for his own good. The Corporation has taken away the woman, Ella (Maud Adams, Octopussy) Jonathon loves, but they can't take away his soul – even if the diabolical corporate head (John Houseman, The Fog) tells him he better retire ... or suffer the old-fashioned way. With its surrealistic imagery and tense action sequences, Rollerball grips you by the heart – and never lets you go. NOVEMBER 22.

"HILARIOUS BLACK COMEDY." – Time Out

"SAVAGELY FUNNY." – The Onion A.V. Club

"RIOTOUS ... INVENTIVE ... MEMORABLE" – TV Guide

Director and co-writer Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the Back To The Future trilogy) is the engine behind Used Cars — the hilariously raunchy salute to those supersalesmen who'll offer lemons while putting the squeeze on you.

Rudy Russo (Kurt Russell, Escape from New York) has what it takes to be top salesman on Luke Fuchs' (Jack Warden) car lot — he's the most charming man who'll ever lie to you. Caught up in a feud between Luke and his brother/rival Roy L. Fuchs (also played by Warden), Rudy gears up for an all-out war. Employing his gifts of gab and grift — along with increasingly outlandish sales tactics — Rudy shifts the battle for sales supremacy into overdrive, turning the lot into a high-octane free-for-all! NOVEMBER 15.

While searching for missing teenagers, novice skip tracer Maggie McKeown (Heather Menzies) and one of the locals, town boozer Paul Grogan (Bradford Dillman), stumble upon a top-secret Army laboratory doing genetic research on piranha for the purpose of biological warfare. When they are accidentally released from the compound, the deadly school of eating machines head downstream and eat everything and anything in their path.

Piranha features a stellar group of talent in front of as well as behind the camera. The top-notch cast of cult stars includes Kevin McCarthy (Invasion Of The Body Snatchers), Barbara Steele (Black Sunday), Belinda Balaski (The Howling), Dick Miller (A Bucket Of Blood), Paul Bartel (Eating Raoul), and Richard Deacon (The Dick Van Dyke Show). NOVEMBER 1.

Piranha 4K is also available with a limited poster and collectible enamel pin set directly from shoutfactory.com.


We haven't had eyes on a full press release for these yet so we don't know final specs for bonus features, audio, or HDR grade, but once we do we'll update our listings ASAP. Also keep in mind these release dates are subject to change - if you remember last year we saw a lot of last-minute schedule shuffling so consider the release dates tentative for the time being. 

It's Christmas in November! National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Elf, and More Arriving on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray the 1st of November!

As the holidays approach, Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) wants to have a perfect family Christmas, so he pesters his wife, Ellen (Beverly D'Angelo), and children, as he tries to make sure everything is in line, including the tree and house decorations.

Set in a 1940s-era Midwestern town and told from the viewpoints of a seven-year-old boy, who only wants one thing for Christmas — a Red Ryder BB gun — the episodic tale chronicles not only his schemes to convince his mother and father to buy him one, but also offers a warmly nostalgic look into 1940s middle-class American life. From the stories of, and narrated by, Jean Shepherd.

This hilarious Christmas film tells the tale of a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag of gifts on Christmas Eve and is transported back to the North Pole and raised as an elf. Years later Buddy learns he is not really an elf and goes on a journey to New York City to find his true identity.


It also appears that The Original Christmas Classics Collection - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray is listed for 4K UHD Blu-ray in November, but it's unclear what is included or if there will be separate releases. We'll keep you posted when more news for any of these releases is available! 

When we get full press releases for these titles we'll update our listings and post to social. For now they're technically rumor, but with so many retailers already starting to punch in listings we're fairly certain they're coming, but we don't know if there will be retailer-exclusive artwork, what bonus features, or tech specs. Even the rumored release dates for November 1st aren't confirmed. As we saw so much title release movement last year, expect some of these dates to change throughout the Holiday season. 

Happy 4K Ultra HD to all and to all a happy physical media upgrade... hopefully.

Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder finds the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – one of self-discovery.

To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor.

DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, 2.0 (International Cut)

Sadly, it doesn't look like we're getting all of the cuts of the film in 4K after all. There was some hope that the International Cut and the Director's Cut would be getting the full 4K treatment but it doesn't look that way. We've reached out for confirmation since Press Releases are notoriously incomplete in a lot of the tech specs but given complicated rights issues on top of the condition of available elements, I'm not surprised only the Theatrical Cut is going to get the Dolby Vision treatment. I know some folks may be tired of picking this one up, but after decades of various VHS, DVDs, and Blu-rays, I highly doubt this first outing on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray will be the one and only 4K disc released.

Here's the full press release for your enjoyment...


ARMY OF DARKNESS

 (COLLECTOR’S EDITION)

ARRIVES ON 4K UHD + BLU-RAY™ AND IN A LIMITED EDITION STEELBOOK ON OCTOBER 4, 2022 FROM SCREAM FACTORY

Los Angeles, CA – Scream Factory™ is releasing Army of Darkness (Collector’s Edition) on 4K UHD + Blu-Ray™ and in a Limited Edition Steelbook on October 4, 2022. The release of the comedy horror film features a 4K scan of the Original Camera Negative, marking its first-time Ultra High-Definition release. Fans of this third installment of the popular Evil Dead phenomenon can pre-order their copies on ShoutFactory.com and other fine retailers.

Bound in human flesh and inked in blood, the ancient "Necronomicon" – the Book of the Dead – unleashes unspeakable evil upon mankind in director Sam Raimi's (Darkman, Drag Me To Hell) outrageously hilarious third chapter in his Evil Dead Trilogy.

Back to do battle with the hideous "Deadites," Bruce Campbell returns to the role of Ash, the handsome, shotgun-toting, chainsaw-armed department store clerk from S-Mart's housewares division. Demonic forces time warp him – and his '73 Oldsmobile – into England's Dark Ages, where he romances a beauty (Embeth Davidtz, The Amazing Spider-Man) and faces legions of the undead. Can Ash save the living from the evil dead, rescue his girlfriend, and get back to his own time?

Criterion Announces November Release Slate with Spike Lee's Malcolm X, Jane Campion's The Power of the Dog, and Wong Kar Wai’s In the Mood for Love Hitting 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

The Criterion Collection has just revealed their November releases that includes Malcolm X, The Power of the Dog, In the Mood for Love, Daisies, and The Infernal Affairs Trilogy. 

First up is the 1966 Czech New Wave film  Daisies  from director Věra Chytilová arriving on Blu-ray November 1.

Daisies - Criterion Collection 

If the entire world is bad, why shouldn’t we be? Adopting this insolent attitude as their guiding philosophy, a pair of hedonistic young women (Ivana Karbanová and Jitka Cerhová), both named Marie, embark on a gleefully debauched odyssey of gluttony, giddy destruction, and antipatriarchal resistance, in which nothing is safe from their nihilistic pursuit of pleasure. But what happens when the fun is over? Matching her anarchic message with an equally radical aesthetic, director Věra Chytilová, with the close collaboration of cinematographer Jaroslav Kučera, unleashes an optical storm of fluctuating film stocks, kaleidoscopic montages, cartoonish stop-motion cutouts, and surreal costumes designed by Ester Krumbachová, who also cowrote the script. The result is Daisies, the most defiant provocation of the Czechoslovak New Wave, an exuberant call to rebellion aimed squarely at those who uphold authoritarian oppression in any form.

BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES 

  • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack
  • Audio commentary featuring film scholars Daniel Bird and Peter Hames
  • New interview with film programmer Irena Kovarova

Also on November 1, Wong Kar Wai’s In the Mood for Love  will be getting an upgrade to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.

In the Mood for Love 

Hong Kong, 1962: Chow Mo Wan (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) and Su Li Zhen (Maggie Cheung Man Yuk) move into neighboring apartments on the same day. Their encounters are formal and polite—until a discovery about their spouses creates an intimate bond between them. At once delicately mannered and visually extravagant, Wong Kar Wai’s In the Mood for Love is a masterful evocation of romantic longing and fleeting moments. With its aching sound¬track and exquisitely abstract cinematography by Christopher Doyle and Mark Lee Ping Bing, this film has been a major stylistic influence on the past two decades of cinema, and is a milestone in Wong’s redoubtable career.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED 4K UHD + BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES 

  • 4K digital restoration with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack, both supervised and approved by director Wong Kar Wai
  • One 4K UHD disc of the film and one Blu-ray with the film and special features

On November 8, Jane Campion's western The Power of the Dog  will be available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray as well as Blu-ray.

The Power of the Dog 

Jane Campion returns to the kind of mythic frontier landscape—pulsating with both freedom and menace—that she previously traversed in The Piano in order to plumb the masculine psyche in The Power of the Dog, set against the desolate plains of 1920s Montana and adapted by the filmmaker from Thomas Savage’s novel. After a sensitive widow (Kirsten Dunst) and her enigmatic, fiercely loving son (Kodi Smit-Mcphee) move in with her gentle new husband (Jesse Plemons), a tense battle of wills plays out between them and his brutish brother (Benedict Cumberbatch), whose frightening volatility conceals a secret torment, and whose capacity for tenderness, once reawakened, may offer him redemption or destruction. Campion, who won an Academy Award for her direction here, charts the repressed desire and psychic violence coursing among these characters with the mesmerizing control of a master at the height of her powers.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES 

  • 4K digital master, approved by director Jane Campion, with Dolby Atmos soundtrack on the Blu-ray and 4K UHD editions
  • For the 4K UHD edition: One 4K UHD disc of the film presented in Dolby Vision HDR and one Blu-ray with the film and special features

The critically-acclaimed Hong Kong crime-drama triple feature The Infernal Affairs Trilogy  arrives on Blu-ray on the 15th.

The Infernal Affairs Trilogy 

The Hong Kong crime drama was jolted to new life with the release of the Infernal Affairs trilogy, a bracing, explosively stylish critical and commercial triumph that introduced a dazzling level of narrative and thematic complexity to the genre with its gripping saga of two rival moles—played by superstars Tony Leung Chiu-wai and Andy Lau Tak-wah—who navigate slippery moral choices as they move between the intersecting territories of Hong Kong’s police force and its criminal underworld. Set during the uncertainty of the city-state’s handover from Britain to China and steeped in Buddhist philosophy, these ingeniously crafted tales of self-deception and betrayal mirror Hong Kong’s own fractured identity and the psychic schisms of life in a postcolonial purgatory.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED THREE-BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

  • New 4K digital restorations, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtracks
  • Audio commentaries for Infernal Affairs and Infernal Affairs II featuring codirectors Andrew Lau Wai-keung and Alan Mak and screenwriter Felix Chong Man-keung
  • Alternate ending for Infernal Affairs
  • New interview with Lau and Mak
  • Archival interviews with Lau, Mak, Chong, and actors Andy Lau Tak-wah, Tony Leung Chiu-wai, Anthony Wong Chau-sang, Kelly Chen Wai-lam, Edison Chen Koon-hei, Eric Tsang Chi-wai, and Chapman To Man-chak

  • Behind-the-scenes footage, deleted scenes, and outtakes 
  • Trailers
  • New English subtitle translations 
  • PLUS: An essay by film critic Justin Chang

Finally on the 22nd, Spike Lee's Malcolm X  starring Denzel Washington will arrive on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray as well as standard Blu-ray format.

Malcolm X 

One of the most electrifying heroes of the twentieth century receives an appropriately sweeping screen biopic, rich in both historical insight and propulsive cinematic style, courtesy of visionary director Spike Lee. Built around an extraordinary performance from Denzel Washington, Malcolm X draws on the iconic civil rights leader’s autobiography to trace his journey of empowerment, from a childhood riven by white-supremacist violence to a life of petty crime to his conversion to Islam and rebirth as a fearless fighter for Black liberation, whose courage and eloquence inspired oppressed communities the world over. An epic of impeccable craft that was made with Lee’s closest creative collaborators and is buoyed by commanding performances from Delroy Lindo, Angela Bassett, Al Freeman Jr., and others, this is a passionate monument to a man whose life continues to serve as a model of principled resistance.

DIRECTOR-APPROVED TWO-BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES 

  • New 4K digital restoration, supervised by cinematographer Ernest Dickerson, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack 
  • For the 4K UHD edition: One 4K UHD disc of the film presented in Dolby Vision HDR and two Blu-rays with the film and special features
  • Audio commentary from 2005 featuring director Spike Lee, Dickerson, editor Barry Alexander Brown, and costume designer Ruth E. Carter
  • New conversation between Lee and journalist and screenwriter Barry Michael Cooper
  • New interviews with actor Delroy Lindo and composer Terence Blanchard
  • Program about the making of the film, featuring Lee, Dickerson, Brown, Blanchard, Carter, filmmaker Martin Scorsese, actor Ossie Davis, Reverend Al Sharpton, former Warner Bros. executive Lucy Fisher, producers Preston Holmes and Jon Kilik, production designer Wynn Thomas, casting director Robi Reed, and Malcolm X’s daughter Ilyasah Shabazz
  • Malcolm X (1972), a feature-length documentary produced by Marvin Worth and Arnold Perl and directed by Perl, narrated by actor James Earl Jones
  • Deleted scenes with introductions by Lee
  • Trailer
  • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
  • PLUS: An essay by Cooper, excerpts from Lee’s 1992 book By Any Means Necessary: The Trials and Tribulations of the Making of “Malcolm X” . . ., and Davis’s eulogy for Malcolm X

 

1992 • 201 minutes • Color/Black & White • 5.1 surround • 1.85:1 aspect ratio

TO SIR, WITH LOVE

SYNOPSIS

A novice teacher faces a class of rowdy, undisciplined working-class punks in this classic film that reflected some of the problems and fears of teens in the 60s. Sidney Poitier gives one of his finest performances as Mark Thackeray, an out-of-work engineer who turns to teaching in London's tough East End. The graduating class, led by Denham (Christian Roberts), Pamela (Judy Geeson) and Barbara (Lulu, who also sings the hit title song), sets out to destroy Thackeray as they did his predecessor by breaking his spirit. But Thackeray, no stranger to hostility, meets the challenge by treating the students as young adults who will soon enter a work force where they must stand or fall on their own. Celebrating its 55th anniversary.
