    Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn (who won the Academy Award® for Best Actress for her performance) are unforgettable as perplexed parents in this landmark 1967 movie about mixed marriage. Joanna (Katharine Houghton), the beautiful daughter of crusading publisher Matthew Drayton (Tracy) and his patrician wife Christina (Hepburn), returns home with her new fiancé John Prentice (Sidney Poitier), a distinguished Black doctor. Christina accepts her daughter's decision to marry John, but Matthew is shocked by this interracial union; the doctor's parents are equally dismayed. Both families must sit down face to face and examine each other's level of intolerance. In GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER, director Stanley Kramer has created a masterful study of society's prejudices.

    PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE

    Synopsis:

    Winner of the Best Director Prize at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival, this misfit love story of disconnected people trying to find one another in an antagonistic world is a comedy of discomfort and rage that turns unexpectedly sweet and pure. Adam Sandler gives an amazing and unusual performance as Barry Egan, a socially impaired owner of a small novelty business, who is dominated by seven sisters and is unlikely to find love unless it finds him. When a mysterious woman comes into his life, his emotions go haywire, fluctuating between uncontrollable rage, lust and self-doubt. From the writer/director of Boogie Nights and Magnolia, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE is a dark, lovely and unique film experience.

    NIGHT OF THE DEMONS

    It's Halloween night and Angela is throwing a party ... but this is no ordinary Halloween party. Everybody's headed to Hull House, a deserted funeral home, formerly the lair of a mass murderer. But when the partygoers decide to have a séance, they awaken something evil ... and these party crashers have a thirst for blood. Now it's a battle for who can survive the night in Hull House.

    William Gallo (Crash), Amelia Kinkade (Girls Just Want To Have Fun), Cathy Podewell (Dallas), Jill Terashita (Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland) and Screen Queen Linnea Quigley (Silent Night, Deadly Night) star in this '80s splatter-fest directed by Kevin S. Tenney (Witchboard).

    NIGHT OF THE DEMONS 2

     

    It's Halloween and the teenagers from St. Rita's High School want to party at the neighborhood's haunted house. For years, the Hull House has sat in eerie silence – tales of its haunted past have turned into gory jokes and no one really believes anything ever happened there. However, Angela (Amelia Kinkade), the hostess from hell, is summoning her army of teen demons to the blood-curdling contest between the school's priests and herself, the princess of darkness. What was intended as an innocent evening of fun and games turns into a hell-raising, life-threatening ordeal ... they wanted fun, now they're in the trick-or-treat party of their lives!

  • The Power of UK Imports Compels You! William Friedkin's The Exorcist 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition 4K UHD Coming October 9th

    Posted Mon Jul 24, 2023 at 06:43 AM PDT by
    The Exorcist - Regan

    "Why this film, why only release it in the UK?"

    "I think the point is to make collectors despair. To see ourselves as animal and ugly. To make us reject the possibility that Warner Bros. could love us."

    Warner Bros. is unleashing William Friedkin's iconic The Exorcist on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray in October (Just in time for Exorcist: Believer). However, in what's becoming an all-too-familiar happening of late in the realm of physical media collecting, the bigger and better deluxe edition release of this high-demand horror classic will be released only overseas. While there's a good chance of Best Buy or some retailer getting a slick SteelBook and maybe a deluxe package option, Warner Bros. has been especially kind to U.K. residents. Zavvi's exclusive "Ultimate Collector's Edition" is already sold out - but right now on Amazon UK, you can pre-order the bigger, better, and fully-packed "Deluxe Edition" ... if you're willing to shell out about $100 USD including shipping. 

    The Exorcist: 50th Anniversary
    4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Deluxe Edition UK Import

    Pre-Order Here

    While we don't have full disc specifics, HDR, Audio, or what-if-any legacy bonus features, we do know that both the original Theatrical Cut and Friedkin's Director's Cut will be included. But to make this set even more epic on a biblical scale, this set features a "unique leather grain outer slipcase and clamshell box" - honestly this looks just like my Catholic grandmother's bible! Inside is a SteelBook case replicating the classic poster art along with a double-sided reproduction poster, Mark Kermode's The Exorcist BFI FIlm Classics book, reproduction lobby cards, art cards, another 40-page booklet, and a sticker of authenticity. 

    Now the pre-order price on this set is pretty high for a single title, about $89.99 before shipping - but it's certainly a showstopping art piece for any collector's shelf. Comparatively, this is what Zavvi had in their already sold out set:

     

    So it may be a little bit more upfront, but you're getting the same stuff - albeit different slipcase art - but also picking up a couple of additional extra swag items along the way. And best of all - it's still available to order! 

    So dig in some couch cushions and see what you can find and get that order in. The set is apparently limited to 2000 units globally so maybe we'll see a similar edition come up for sale here in the States, but if past is truly prologue, I can see this being yet another exciting Warner Bros. deluxe set that we'll have to import. 

    As soon as we get official word from Warner Bros about this release, we'll update with disc specs and hopefully, we'll also see some awesome US-Based retailer exclusives too.

  • John Wick: Chapter 4 Takes A Shot At 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray on June 13

    Posted Tue May 2, 2023 at 12:00 PM PDT by
    John wick 4 - 3

    The fourth chapter in star Keanu Reeves and director Chad Stahelski's John Wick franchise will be gunning down 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray on June 13 from Lionsgate. The 4K UHD Blu-ray will also have several retailer exclusives available and Digital arrives May 23.

    Read our review of John Wick: Chapter 4 HERE.

    John Wick (Keanu Reeves) uncovers a path to defeating The High Table. But before he can earn his freedom, Wick must face off against a new enemy with powerful alliances across the globe, and forces that turn old friends into foes.

    The 4K Ultra HD the Blu-ray will include Dolby Vision and both the 4K and Blu-ray releases will have Dolby Atmos soundtracks.

    4K ULTRA HD / BLU-RAY / DVD / DIGITAL SPECIAL FEATURES 

    • Chad and Keanu: Through Wick and Thin: Chad Stahelski and Keanu Reeves have a partnership that stretches all the way back to the first Matrix film. In this retrospective piece, we trace their remarkable friendship and decades-long collaboration.
    • Train Like a Killer: Weapons Master Robert “Rock” Galotti and Keanu Reeves reveal the rigorous training that Keanu had to endure to make John Wick: Chapter 4 a reality – from gunplay, to jiu jitsu, to some hard-hitting stunt work.
    • Making A Killing: In John Wick, sets are not merely the backdrop for each scene – they are integral parts of the action, with Wick often using whatever is on hand to take the fight to his enemies. Here we explore the craft at play in designing the sets of John Wick: Chapter 4 and the ways set design and action choreography go hand in hand in this legendary series.
    • The Psychology of a Killer: Chad Stahelski explores the psychology of John Wick, a character who, despite four films, is still a mystery in many ways. We unpack the complicated code of ethics that Wick lives by, and the ironic bonds he shares with the men trying to kill him.
    • The Blind Leading the Fight: John Wick: Chapter 4 witnesses the arrival of Caine, a blind killer played by legendary actor and martial artist Donnie Yen. With a style not seen since The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi, Caine shows that a killer’s greatest instincts come not from his eyes, but from his mind. Here we uncover Yen’s journey on this film, exploring his prep for the role, his insight into the character, and his intense training regimen to portray this unlikely killer.
    • Suit Up / Shoot Up: Costume Designer Paco Delgado uncovers the cooler-than-cool suits worn by the assassins of John Wick that feature bulletproof lining – just what every killer needs for a night out on the town. We also explore the more refined looks of the Marquis and the Old West-inspired garb of the Tracker.
    • Packing a Punch: Pulling off a kill takes a village. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the way Team Wick incorporates special effects into the practical stunts and locations of the film.
    • One Killer Shot: John Wick: Chapter 4 features one of the boldest single-take shots ever attempted in action filmmaking. Fight Choreographers Jeremy Marinas and Laurent Demianoff team up with Stunt Coordinator Scott Rogers to dive into the creative challenges that went into planning this one-shot sequence that sees John Wick take on Paris’s deadliest killers.
    • Killing at the Speed of Traffic: Take a look at a nonstop action sequence featuring John Wick’s car-fu at the Arc de Triomphe! The driving force of this piece will be a look at the effects achieved at the iconic location, and sets the stakes of every assassin in Paris descending on Wick.
    • A Shot in the Dark: The John Wick series takes audiences into a world that is both thematically and visually dark. For film crews, that meant enduring hundreds of night shoots, with crews switching to a virtually nocturnal mode of life for long stretches of production. Here we explore the tenacious work of cast and crew members who tough it out night after night in pursuit of Wick’s dark, iconic aesthetic. Along the way, we explore some of the most iconic night scenes in the film, culminating with Wick’s brutal staircase fight.
    • In Honor of the Dead: In creating John Wick: Chapter 4, Chad Stahelski drew on references from some of the greatest films ever made. Uncover the cinematic homages depicted in the film, from David Lean to John Woo, to the samurai epics of post-war Japan.

  • David Cronenberg's "Naked Lunch" Orders Out For Three New 4-Disc 4K UHD Mediabooks from Turbine!

    Posted Tue Apr 11, 2023 at 03:11 AM PDT by
    Naked Lunch - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Turbine Medien Mediabook Limited Edition David Cronenberg Peter Weller

    Turbine Medien prepares 4K UHD Mediabook collectors for a wild journey into the Interzone with David Cronenberg's hypnotic adaptation of William S. Burroughs' iconic novel Naked Lunch with a 4-disc set packed with five hours of bonus features! All three Limited Edition Mediabooks are up for per-order and ship starting April 28th

    One of the most bizarre and surreal films in Cronenberg's already bizarre and surreal catalog of films, Naked Lunch is steeped in hyptnotic imagery held by incredible performacnes and an amazing Howard Shore score. Burroughs has always been a polarizing figure and so too was this film. Part adaptation of Burroughs' novel, his actual life, and other short stories, Peter Weller stars as William Lee who after killing his wife, grabs his typewriter and flees to the North African Interzone. It's a hell of a trip and essential viewing for any Cronenberg fan. It's also damned hard to peg a specific genre. Is it comedy? Drama? Horror? Science Fiction? All of the above? You'll just have to huff your own tank of bug killer and find out for yourself!

    As we knew Arrow Video was already issuing their own releases of Naked Lunch, Turbine Medien is preparing to unleash their own unique Limited Edition Mediabook Releases. Each edition offers the film in 4k Ultra HD with Dolby Vision HDR with a transfer approved by Cronenberg, a remastered Blu-ray, as well as two additional discs with over 5-hours of bonus features on top of a 48-page essay book (in German)!

  • The Criterion Collection Dates and Details April 2022 Blu-ray Slate including For All Mankind on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

    Posted Fri Jan 21, 2022 at 09:16 AM PST by

    Six titles will be available from The Criterion Collection this April featuring a 4K upgrade of "the best moon movie ever made". 

    First up on the 4K front, For All Mankind - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray will be getting a 4K/Blu-ray combo release on April 26th.

    For All Mankind - Criterion Collection 4K UHD 

    In July 1969, the space race ended when Apollo 11 fulfilled President John F. Kennedy’s challenge of “landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth.” No one who witnessed the lunar landing will ever forget it. Twenty years later, Al Reinert constructed a documentary that imparts the unforgettable story of the twenty-four astronauts who participated in the Apollo mission to land on the moon—told in their words and in their voices, using the images they captured. With its awe-inspiring, otherworldly footage and a haunting atmospheric soundtrack by Brian Eno, For All Mankind stirs us with a profound sense of compassion for the “pale blue dot” that is our home, and it is still the most radical, visually dazzling work of cinema that has been made about this earthshaking event.

    4K UHD + BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

    • In the 4K UHD edition: New 4K digital restorations of the original 1.33:1 framing and the alternate 1.85:1 theatrical presentation, with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack

    • Selection of excerpted interviews with fifteen of the Apollo astronauts

    • NASA audio highlights and liftoff footage
    • Optional on-screen identification of astronauts and mission-control specialists

    The other five titles are Blu-ray only starting with the rock-and-roll 1950s musical The Girl Can't Help It starring Jayne Mansfield on April 19th.

    The Girl Can't Help It 

    In 1956, Frank Tashlin brought the talent for zany visual gags and absurdist pop-culture satire that he’d honed as a master of animation to the task of capturing, in glorious DeLuxe Color, a brand-new craze: rock and roll. This blissfully bonkers jukebox musical tells the story of a mobster’s bombshell girlfriend—the one and only Jayne Mansfield, in a showstopping first major film role—and the washed-up talent agent (Tom Ewell) who seeks to revive his career by turning her into a musical sensation. The only question is: Can she actually sing? A CinemaScope feast of eye-popping midcentury design, The Girl Can’t Help It bops along to a parade of performances by rock-and-roll trailblazers—including Little Richard, Fats Domino, Julie London, Eddie Cochran, the Platters, and Gene Vincent—who light up the screen with the uniquely American sound that was about to conquer the world.

      New cover by Jaffa the Unknown

    Also on the 19th comes the fantastical comedy Miracle in Milan  from director Vittorio De Sica.

    Miracle in Milan 

    Renowned filmmaker Vittorio De Sica followed up his international triumph Bicycle Thieves with this enchantingly playful neorealist fairy tale, in which he combines his celebrated slice-of-life poetry with flights of graceful comedy and storybook fantasy. On the outskirts of Milan, a band of vagabonds work together to form a shantytown. When it is discovered that the land they occupy contains oil, however, it’s up to the cherubic orphan Totò (Francesco Golisano)—with some divine help—to save their community from greedy developers. Tipping their hats to the imaginative whimsy of Charles Chaplin and René Clair, De Sica and screenwriter Cesare Zavattini, adapting his own novel, craft a bighearted ode to the nobility of everyday people.

    BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

    • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
    • New interview with neorealism expert and film scholar David Forgacs

      New cover by Manule Fior

    On the 26th, the directorial debut of twins Arie and Chuko Esiri Eyimofe (This Is My Desire)  is set for a Blu-ray release.

    Eyimofe (This Is My Desire) 

    This revelatory, award-winning debut feature from codirectors (and twin brothers) Arie and Chuko Esiri is a heartrending and hopeful portrait of everyday human endurance in Lagos, Nigeria. Shot on richly textured 16 mm film and infused with the spirit of neorealism, Eyimofe (This Is My Desire) traces the journeys of two distantly connected strangers—Mofe (Jude Akuwudike), an electrician dealing with the fallout of a family tragedy, and Rosa (Temi Ami-Williams), a hairdresser supporting her pregnant teenage sister—as they each pursue their dream of starting a new life in Europe while bumping up against the harsh economic realities of a world in which every interaction is a transaction. From these intimate stories emerges a vivid snapshot of life in contemporary Lagos, whose social fabric is captured in all its vibrancy and complexity.

    BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

    • New 2K digital transfer, approved by directors Arie and Chuko Esiri, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray

    • PLUS: An essay by writer and filmmaker Maryam Kazeem

      New cover by Diana Ejaita

    Next, Bertrand Tavernier directs Dexter Gordon in the critically-acclaimed jazz film ’Round Midnight which will be released on Blu-ray on April 26th.

    ’Round Midnight 

    ’Round Midnight is a love letter from director Bertrand Tavernier to the heyday of bebop and to the Black American musicians who found refuge in the smoky underground jazz clubs of 1950s Paris. In a miraculous, sui generis fusion of performer and character that was nominated for an Oscar, legendary saxophonist Dexter Gordon plays Dale Turner, a brilliant New York jazz veteran whose music aches with beauty but whose personal life is ravaged by addiction. Searching for a fresh start in Paris, Turner strikes up an unlikely friendship with a struggling single father and ardent jazz fan (François Cluzet) who finds his life transformed as he attempts to help the self-destructive musician. Herbie Hancock’s evocative, Oscar-winning score sets the mood for this definitive jazz film, a bittersweet opus that glows with lived-in, soulful authenticity.

    BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

    • New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed stereo soundtrack on the Blu-ray
    • Alternate 5.1 surround soundtrack, supervised by composer Herbie Hancock and presented in DTS-HD Master Audio

    • New English subtitle translation and English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
    • PLUS: An essay by scholar Mark Anthony Neal

      New cover by F. Ron Miller

    Finally, Alex Cox's blistering biopic Walker  leads off the month on April 12th.

    Walker 

    A hallucinatory biopic that breaks all cinematic conventions, Walker, from British director Alex Cox, tells the story of nineteenth-century American adventurer William Walker (Ed Harris), who abandoned a series of careers in law, politics, journalism, and medicine to become a soldier of fortune and, for many months, the dictator of Nicaragua. Made with mad abandon and political acuity—and the support of the Sandinista army and government during the contra war—the film uses this true tale as a satirical attack on American ultrapatriotism and a freewheeling condemnation of “manifest destiny.” Featuring a powerful score by Joe Strummer and a performance of intense, repressed rage by Harris, Walker remains one of Cox’s most daring works.

    BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES

    • Restored high-definition digital transfer, approved by director Alex Cox, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
    • Audio commentary by Cox and screenwriter Rudy Wurlitzer
    • Dispatches from Nicaragua, a documentary about the filming of Walker
    • On Moviemaking and the Revolution, reminiscences about the production twenty years later from an extra on the film
    • Walker 2008 and On the Origins of “Walker” (2016), two short films by Cox (Blu-ray only)
    • Behind-the-scenes photos
    • Trailer (Blu-ray only)
    • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
    • PLUS: Essays by film critic Graham Fuller, Wurlitzer, and Linda Sandoval

      Blu-ray cover by Paul Mavrides (pictured); DVD cover by Marc English
