    You can't have a slate of October horror disc releases without another appearance from Michael Myers! 

    After already scoring an impressive 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray run thanks to Scream Factory, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later will be carving up a new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release from Paramount Home Entertainment with deluxe SteelBook packaging. Honestly, considering that release was barely a year old and that 3-Film set was the only way Scream could release it, I wasn't expecting a solo-title release of this film anytime soon. But given it's the 25th Anniversary, it shouldn't have been too surprising. The press release didn't give us a lot of details, but thanks to Amazon having the back J-card artwork posted, it does look like this release will offer up Dolby Vision HDR with DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio - although no bonus features are listed. We've made inquiries to find out those extra disc specs and if there will in fact be any bonus features or not.

  • One of the Greatest Batman Films Ever - Mask of the Phantasm Comes to 4K UHD September 12th

    Batman: Mask of the Phantasm Blu-ray Review Batman's Eyes

    Celebrating 30 years of animated Batman glory, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm has been fully restored for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

    Where was Kevin Conroy's Batman in that silly multiverse convergence scene in The Flash? If you're like me and starting to feel a bit old - news that Batman: Mask of the Phantasm celebrating its 30th Anniversary starts to hit hard. Originally planned as a direct-to-video release, the film was so good it demanded a theatrical run.  I was 11 when I saw this incredible film in theaters and was always perplexed how this movie could be so amazing and yet all of my friends could think Batman Forever was a better movie. Now to celebrate its big anniversary, Warner Bros. is delivering fans a fully restored 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray to thoroughly scrutinize - hopefully, it's more akin to the excellent Batman: The Animated Series release and not that woefully scrubbed Max Fleischer's Superman set.

    BATMAN: MASK OF THE PHANTASM

     

    WARNER BROS. DISCOVERY CELEBRATES 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF HERALDED

    FAN FAVORITE ANIMATED FILM WITH FULLY REMASTERED EDITION

    FOR 4K ULTRA HDTM

     

    AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE ON SEPTEMBER 12, 2023

     

    #BatmanMaskofthePhantasm4K

     

     

    BURBANK, CA (July 26, 2023) – Celebrate the 30th anniversary of the most universally acclaimed film in the Dark Knight’s legendary cinematic history when the newly-remastered animated movie Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, comes to 4K Ultra HD for the very first time. From Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment, the film will be available to purchase on 4K Ultra HD on September 12, 2023.

     

    The release will also include an all-new featurette Kevin Conroy: I Am The Knight, which takes a look at the legacy of Kevin Conroy, who voiced Batman for 30 years in film, television, video games and more.

     

    Rooted in DC’s acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series and released theatrically on Christmas Day 1993, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm has not only been ranked by Time magazine as one of the 10 best Super Hero movies ever, but is also arguably the core fans’ all-time favorite Batman film. The movie has been rated at the top of the Dark Knight film franchise by such popular entertainment media as Empire, Screenrant and Paste. And in the ultimate mainstream salute for its time, Gene Siskel & Robert Ebert didn’t initially review the film during its theatrical release, but later dedicated a portion of their At The Movies weekly TV series to pay compliment to the film – and voice their regret for not giving it the attention it deserved during its original run – when Batman: Mask of the Phantasm was distributed for home entertainment.

     

    The 4K HDR/SDR remaster of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm was sourced from the 1993 Original Cut Camera Negative and was scanned at 4K resolution. Digital restoration was applied to the 4K scans to remove dirt, scratches and additional anomalies, but special care was given to not touch the film grain or the animation cel dirt that was part of the original artwork. This is the first time since its theatrical release that it is presented in its 1.85 aspect ratio. The original 2.0 mix and the 5.1 tracks were remastered to remove or improve defects such as pops, ticks, dropouts and distortion.

     

    The animated film features an all-star cast headed by the quintessential voice of Batman, Kevin Conroy, alongside Dana Delany (Desperate Housewives, China Beach) as Bruce Wayne’s love interest, Andrea Beaumont, Mark Hamill (Star Wars franchise) as the Joker, Stacy Keach (Nebraska, Prison Break, Mike Hammer) as Phantasm/Carl Beaumont, Abe Vigoda (Barney Miller, The Godfather) as Salvatore Valestra, Efrem Zimbalist Jr. (The F.B.I.) as Alfred, Hart Bochner (Die Hard) as Arthur Reeves, Bob Hastings (McHale’s Navy, The Poseidon Adventure) as Commissioner Gordon, Robert Costanzo (Forget Paris, City Slickers) as Detective Bullock, Dick Miller (Gremlins, The Terminator) as Chuckie Sol, and John P. Ryan (The Right Stuff) as Buzz Bronski. Additional voices included Pat Musick, Marilu Henner, Neil Ross, Ed Gilbert, Jeff Bennett, Jane Downs, Vernee Watson, Charles Howerton, Thom Pinto and Peter Renaday.

     

    The Batman: Mask of the Phantasm filmmaking team is composed of the award-winning core group behind Batman: The Animated Series. Eric Radomski and Bruce Timm directed the film from a screenplay by Alan Burnett, Paul Dini, Martin Pasko and Michael Reaves, based on a story by Burnett.

     

    Batman: Mask of the Phantasm will be available on September 12, 2023 to purchase Digitally from Amazon Prime Video, AppleTV, Google Play, Vudu and more. 4K Ultra HD Discs will be available to purchase online and in-store at major retailers. Pre-order your copy now.

     

    SYNOPSIS:

    Batman: Mask of the Phantasm opens with the city's most feared gangsters being systematically eliminated, and assumed blame falling on the Caped Crusader. But prowling the Gotham night is a shadowy new villain, the Phantasm, a sinister figure with some link to Batman's past. Can the Dark Knight elude the police, capture the Phantasm and clear his own name? Unmasking the Phantasm is just one of the twists in this dazzling animated feature, which provides new revelations about Batman's past, his archrival the Joker, and Batman's most grueling battle ever - the choice between his love for a beautiful woman and his vow to be the defender of right.

     

    SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE*:

    Kevin Conroy: I Am The Knight (New Featurette) – For 30 years, Kevin Conroy defined Batman for multiple generations using only his voice, best exemplified in the landmark film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. Conroy passed away in November 2022, but his legacy lives on in 15 films, nearly 400 episodes of animated television series, a dozen video games, and as a live-action Bruce Wayne in the Arrowverse’s 2019-2020 “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event. Several of Conroy’s contemporaries – including animation legend Bruce Timm, Batman producer Michael Uslan and revered voice actress Tara Strong – pay tribute to the star who remains the Dark Knight for millions of Batfans.

     

    Bonus episode of Justice League: Unlimited featuring a cameo from Phantasm.

    *Special features are not available in 4K Ultra HD.

  • Make Some Shelf Space Exploitation and Sexploitation Collectors - Vinegar Syndrome and Distribpix Are Teaming Up!

    Posted Wed Jul 26, 2023 at 07:51 AM PDT by
    Vinegar Syndrome Combines Forces With Distribpix

    Your collection of guilty pleasure exploitation and sexploitation titles is about to get a whole lot... bigger! 

    Do you remember going to your local video rental shop back in the day and there was that mysterious adjacent room just past the Horror section full of "Adult Only" titles? Back then the only thing that separated you from those alluring flicks was a soft velvety curtain. For fans of classic exploitation and sexploitation cinema, you may just want to recreate that fabled room in your home complete with curtain and red twinkle lights now that Vinegar Syndrome and Distribpix are joining forces to bring some of the biggest, best, and kinkiest titles to home video! 

    Full details of which titles haven't been fully hashed out but we're talking about hundreds of titles potentially coming to Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray - let alone picking up their very first disc releases ever! With a new distribution partner comes some exciting new labels populating the already broad swath of genres and labels under the Vinegar Syndrome umbrella. 

    Take a look at the press release for all the details:


    A Home Video Merger of Epic Proportion  

    Bridgeport, Connecticut - Vinegar Syndrome is excited to announce an exclusive distribution partnership with legendary NYC-based exploitation and sexploitation producer and distributor, Distribpix Inc. 

    This partnership will bring Distribpix’s extensive catalog of close to 300 feature films to Home Video, including countless never-on-disc titles as well as classic exploitation films from genre masters such as Michael and Roberta Findlay, the  Amero Brothers, Joe Sarno, Chuck Vincent, Radley Metzger, Ron Sullivan, and  Shaun Costello, among dozens more. Additionally, Distribpix’s unprecedented archive of key 1960s and early 70s exploitation rarities, many of which have been completely unavailable since the VHS and early DVD era, will, at last, be making their return to disc, all newly restored and presented in the type of deluxe, collector-centric editions that both Distribpix and Vinegar Syndrome are known for creating. 

    Vinegar Syndrome co-founder Joe Rubin, in describing the collaboration said, “Vinegar Syndrome and Distribpix have worked together before Vinegar  Syndrome existed. This venture has been a long time coming and I couldn’t be more excited to be working on preserving, restoring and releasing this collection.  So many of the best and most significant sexploitation and early hardcore features were produced by Distribpix and it is an honor to finally be able to  consider them part of the Vinegar Syndrome family.” 

    Head of Distribpix Inc, Steven Morowitz responded “The gang at Vinegar  Syndrome is wonderful; they opened their doors and welcomed me into their family. I am honored and grateful for this opportunity and together we are going to produce some absolutely amazing packages. Vinegar Syndrome is the best at what they do, from the highest quality restorations, to top-notch physical releases, so this really is a perfect match and the best spot for Distribpix. Our  companies not only thrive on excellent restorations and releasing, but there is a  major emphasis on film preservation and archiving, which was equally attractive  to me.” 

    While schedule specifics are still being worked out, Radley Metzger and Gerard  Kikoine’s, The Tale of Tiffany Lust (1981), starring Veronica Hart, Vanessa Del  Rio, Desiree Cousteau, Samantha Fox, George Payne, and Dominique St Clair,  will be making its world 4K UHD and Blu-Ray debut late this summer, while  Michael Findlay’s notorious Flesh Trilogy is being prepared for a Blu-Ray release this fall, in partnership with Something Weird Video. Additionally, the Command  Cinema line which has been distributed by Distribpix for the last several years will also be joining the Distribpix/Vinegar Syndrome family and will see both Blu-ray and 4K debuts of producer/director, Cecil Howard’s acclaimed erotica.  

    This monumental merger coincides with the launch of Mélusine, a new online  marketplace for premium home video editions of sexploitation and hardcore  cinema primarily produced during both genres’ golden ages: the early 1960s through the late 1980s. In addition to serving as the new retail home for Command Cinema, several other brandings will be launched:  

    Mélusine, which will serve as the flagship brand, will offer deluxe 4K UHD/Blu-ray combo pack editions of some of the landmark works in hardcore theatrical features, with an emphasis on works by the genre’s most acclaimed filmmakers.  

    Quality X, the name of which pays homage to what was one of the most esteemed early home video distributors of erotic entertainment, will offer single film Blu-ray editions of standout and hidden gem theatrical hardcore features from around the globe.  

    Distribpix itself will become home to all things sexploitation, pulling from both  Vinegar Syndrome and Distribpix’s vast libraries and ranging from the earliest nudie cuties all the way through the tail end of theatrical softcore. Releases will be single, double and triple feature Blu-rays.   

    Finally, Vinegar Syndrome’s acclaimed hardcore feature branding, Peekarama, will continue to offer double feature Blu-rays of hardcore films in all genres. In keeping with Vinegar Syndrome and Distribpix’s focus on film preservation,  releases under all branding will meet the highest standards in presentation quality and the most comprehensive available extras. 

    The union between the two companies will produce the widest and most diverse catalog of exploitation, sexploitation, and classic hardcore features, available on disc anywhere in the world.

    1100 BCE. King Priam (Sir Cedric Hardwicke) of Troy, sends his son, Paris (Jack Sernas), to Sparta to negotiate a treaty to ensure peace between the two Greek city-states. But Paris falls in love with Spartan King Menelaus' (Niall MacGinnis) wife, Helen (Rossana Podesta). Paris kidnaps the willing Helen and her servant (Brigitte Bardot), starting a war that will kill thousands of brave warriors and spell the end of the city of Troy. Homer's Iliad provides the basis for this epic from the '50s heyday of big-screen blockbusters. Robert Wise (West Side Story, The Sound Of Music) directs this lavish epic capturing more than 30,000 people on screen at a then-huge production cost of $6 million.

    According to Bill Hunt over at The Digital Bits, Warner Brothers seems to be prepping Batman: Mask of the Phantasm for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray for a release likely this fall.

    Batman: Mask of the Phantasm: When the city's most feared gangsters are systematically eliminated, the Caped Crusader is blamed. But prowling the Gotham night is a shadowy new villain, the Phantasm, a sinister figure with some link to Batman's past. Can the Dark Knight elude the police, capture the Phantasm and clear his own name?

    Unmasking the Phantasm is just one of the twists in this dazzling animated feature. Discover revelations about Batman's past, his archrival the Joker and Batman's most grueling battle ever — the choice between his love for a beautiful woman and his vow to be the defender of right. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is "a mystery that is genuinely absorbing, suspenseful and moving" (Cincinnati Enquirer).

    Quentin Tarantino fans will also be pleased to know that The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Lionsgate will be re-releasing Jackie Brown, Kill Bill: Vo 1, and Kill Bill: Vol 2 in the near future with a newly remastered 4K Ultra HD of Kill Bill: Vol 1 leading the way to coincide with the film's 25th anniversary. It's probably safe to assume the others won't be far behind. We hope to be able to update those with official release news ASAP.

    Lastly, there is no release date yet, however, Kino Lorber Studio Classics is working on John Favreau's Cowboys & Aliens starring Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Olivia Wilde for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray sometime in 2023 or early 2024.  

    Cowboys & Aliens: Bearing a mysterious metal shackle on his wrist, an amnesiac gunslinger (Daniel Craig) wanders into a frontier town called Absolution. He quickly finds that strangers are unwelcome, and no one does anything without the approval of tyrannical Col. Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford). But when Absolution faces a threat from beyond Earth, the stranger finds that he is its only hope of salvation. He unites townspeople, outlaws and Apache warriors against the alien forces in an epic battle for survival.

    The Super Mario Bros. Movie - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Announcement

    Universal Pictures Home Entertainment finally makes The Super Mario Bros. The Movie official for Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on June 13th - even though multiple retailers have already shelved their stock.

    One of the biggest box office successes of 2023, The Super Mario Bros. Movie finally comes home to physical media. While Universal was incredibly slow getting an official release date out, retailers more or less had to take a stab in the dark when they could shelve their product. So Universal's press release indicates next Tuesday, June 13th as the official release date, stores like Walmart, Target, and Best Buy broke street date over the weekend - and it looks like product is still on shelves. So grab your power-up star and run over all those other collectors out there and grab a copy!

    The movie tells the story of two Brooklyn plumbers who are brothers and best friends: Mario, the brave one with the “let’s-a go” attitude, and the perpetually anxious Luigi, who would prefer to go nowhere. We open with the Super Mario Brothers reckoning with their struggling plumbing business, and wind up in a whirlwind adventure through Mushroom Kingdom. Through their journey, we meet a cast of familiar, lovable characters, ultimately uniting to defeat the power-hungry villain, Bowser. The Super Mario Bros. Movie takes what millions of gamers worldwide have loved for over three decades and levels it up to a new and breathtaking cinematic experience.

    Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One Trailer

    The end of Tom Cruise's long-running franchise is inching closer with the latest trailer for Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One

    While the trailer doesn't offer a whole lot of plot details, it gives fans highlights of some of the exciting stunts and action sequences we'll see on the big screen. Normally I'd be worried about this kind of trailer showing too much of the film, but if Rogue Nation and Fallout proved, there's a lot more excitement than the few seconds we get in these trailers. 

    In Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One, Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team embark on their most dangerous mission yet: To track down a terrifying new weapon that threatens all of humanity before it falls into the wrong hands. With control of the future and the fate of the world at stake, and dark forces from Ethan's past closing in, a deadly race around the globe begins. Confronted by a mysterious, all-powerful enemy, Ethan is forced to consider that nothing can matter more than his mission - not even the lives of those he cares about most.

    Starring:
    Tom Cruise, Hayley Atwell, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Rebecca Ferguson, Vanessa Kirby, Esai Morales, Pom Klementieff, Mariela Garriga, Henry Czerny, Shea Whigham, Greg Tarzan Davis, Charles Parnell, Frederick Schmidt, Cary Elwes, Mark Gatiss, Indira Varma, Rob Delaney

    Directed By:
    Christopher McQuarrie

    Produced By:
    Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie

    Executive Produced By;:
    David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, Tommy Gormley, Chris Brock, Susan E. Novick

    The film is slated to hit theaters July 12th with the big grand finale followup Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning Part Two arriving in theaters next summer.

    National Lampoon's Vacation - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Chevey Chase

    The classic Harold Ramis comedy starring Chevy Chase goes down the 4K UHD Blu-ray holiday road on June 27. The digital release and a Best Buy exclusive SteelBook will also be available on the same day.

    Everything is planned, packed – and about to go hilariously wrong. The Griswolds are going on vacation. In the driver’s seat is Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase), an Everyman eager to share the open road and the wonders of family togetherness. Myriad mishaps, crude kin (Randy Quaid), encounters with a temptress (Christie Brinkley), financial woes, Aunt Edna (Imogene Coca) on the roof, one security guard (John Candy) and 2,460 miles later, it’s a wonder the Griswolds are together.

    About the Film:

    Everything is planned, packed – and about to go hilariously wrong. The Griswolds are going on vacation. In the driver’s seat is Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase), an Everyman eager to share the open road and the wonders of family togetherness. Myriad mishaps, crude kin (Randy Quaid), encounters with a temptress (Christie Brinkley), financial woes, Aunt Edna (Imogene Coca) on the roof, one security guard (John Candy) and 2,460 miles later, it’s a wonder the Griswolds are together. There’s never been a family vacation like it. Except maybe yours. And that helps explain why National Lampoon’s Vacation remains so popular… and so very funny.

  • Time For Your Surgical Shine Job - Turbine Debuts Four New Pitch Black Director's Cut 4K UHD Mediabooks

    Posted Wed Mar 22, 2023 at 09:00 AM PDT by
    Pitch Black: Director's Cut - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray 3-Disc Mediabook Turbine Medien

    If you missed out on the massive Pitch Black: Director's Cut 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray set, Turbine slims things down with four new limited edition three-disc Mediabook sets.

    While some folks love the big giant Ultimate Editions loaded with swag, posters, and 180-page books, they're understandably not for everyone... and can be a bit expensive. German label Turbine Medien is taking the opportunity to offer a slick alternative for fans of Vin Diesel and David Towhy's sci-fi/horror opus with four unique limited edition three-disc Mediabooks.

    You're going to pick up the same three discs as the Ultimate Edition we reviewed last year but without all of the extra posters, ID cards, lobby cards, iron-on patch, core sample card, or the 180-page book. Being a Mediabook release, there is still a 28-page book (in German) included but it obviously won't be as expansive as what was included in the Ultimate Edition sets. However, you will still get the same great Dolby Vision transfer, the excellent Atmos audio mix, and over six hours of recent and archival bonus content. Compared to Arrow's release, the only thing you don't get is the Theatrical Cut, but I mean, come on... who watches the Theatrical Cut of Pitch Black when the Director's Cut is so much better anyway?

    Here are your four Mediabook cover options:

    Pitch Black: Director's Cut - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Mediabook
    Black Cover (666 Units)

    Pitch Black: Director's Cut - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Mediabook
    Green Cover (666 Units)

    Pitch Black: Director's Cut - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Mediabook
    Red Cover (333 Units)

    Pitch Black: Director's Cut - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Mediabook
    Japan Artwork (333 Units)

    Here are all of the gory disc details:

    3-Disc Mediabook-Edition:
    Director's Cut on UHD and Blu-ray with complete dubbing and world-exclusive sound in Dolby Atmos. UHD with HDR and Dolby Vision.

  • The Last of Us Infects 4K UHD & Blu-ray... In July!

    Posted Tue Mar 14, 2023 at 09:38 AM PDT by
    The Last of Us - 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Announcement Pedro Pascal Bella Ramsey

    One of the rare excellent video game adaptations, HBO's The Last of Us is coming to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray July 18th, 2023 - Digital on April 11th. 

    Remember when video game adaptations were universally bad? Well, that bad luck has been changing after two successful Sonic the Hedgehog films and now HBO's smash hit The Last of Us. Maybe we can get a genuinely good Resident Evil movie or television series one day? In the meantime, we'll just have to wait for The Last of Us to return to television screens. The series stayed true to the video game's roots focusing on the human conflict of surviving the zombie apocalypse, but rather than retread the same ground of The Walking Dead, Neil Druckmann and showrunner Craig Mazin wisely found a way to push the fungal-infected horrors to the sidelines, focus on the humans, and still craft a compelling and often terrifying show. Now we all get to wait four long months to own the show on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray

    The Last of Us - 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

    The Last of Us - Blu-ray

    Now we've seen images of a 4K SteelBook offering due to hit the U.K. markets, and it's a safe assumption that it'll come here.

Mind you, full specs and A/V details aren't available yet, the press release included a list of bonus features that will be available with the digital purchase.

    SPECIAL FEATURES ON DIGITAL INCLUDE:

    • Controllers Down: Adapting The Last of Us (New Featurette Exclusive to 4K, BD and DVD) - Follow the journey of The Last of Us from console to screen as cast and filmmakers take us inside the process of expanding the world and breathing new life into the game’s beloved characters.

    Here's the full press release for you to take a gander at:


    THE HBO® ORIGINAL HIT SERIES

    THE LAST OF US:

    THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

    AVAILABLE PURCHASE DIGITALLY ON APRIL 11, 2023

    AND ON 4K ULTRA HDTM, BLU-RAYTM AND DVD JULY 18, 2023

    #TheLastOfUS

    BURBANK, CA (March, 14, 2023) – Millions of viewers know now why loyal gamers have been clamoring for a worthy adaptation of The Last of Us. Based on the famed video game of the same name, the HBO original drama series marked HBO’s second largest debut, behind only “House of the Dragon,” and has shown consistent growth throughout its first season culminating in a 75% increase in Sunday night’s finale audience. Recently renewed for a second season, fans can own all nine episodes of the critically-acclaimed first season along with nearly 3 hours of special features including 3 all-new featurettes, when The Last of Us: The Complete First Season comes to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on July 18, 2023 and will be available to purchase Digitally* on April 11, 2023.

    The Last of Us takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal and heartbreaking journey as they both must traverse the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.

    Season one stars Pedro Pascal as Joel, Bella Ramsey as Ellie, Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Anna Torv as Tess, Nico Parker as Sarah, Murray Bartlett as Frank, Nick Offerman as Bill, Melanie Lynskey as Kathleen, Storm Reid as Riley, Merle Dandridge as Marlene, Jeffrey Pierce as Perry, Lamar Johnson as Henry, Keivonn Woodard as Sam, Graham Greene as Marlon, and Elaine Miles as Florence. Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker also star.

    With a 96% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes, The Last of Us has been declared “HBO’s next big hit” by Rolling Stone, with Variety noting, “one sees the near future in which the show winds up among television’s best.” IndieWire declared the new series “better than every video game adaptation that comes to mind,” with IGN hailing it as “a brilliant retelling of one of video games’ most beloved stories” and adding that it “delivers an enriching show for fans of the PlayStation hit, while also managing to stay welcomingly thrilling to newcomers.” CNN called the storytelling “absolutely fearless and unflinching, creating horrifying scenarios and moments that can be alternately touching and utterly tragic.”

    The Last of Us, based on the critically acclaimed video game of the same name developed by Naughty Dog for the PlayStation® platforms, is written and executive produced by Craig Mazin (Emmy® Award-winning creator of HBO’s “Chernobyl”) and Neil Druckmann (creator and writer of the award-winning “The Last of Us” franchise and Naughty Dog Co-President). The series is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television and is executive produced by Carolyn Strauss, Evan Wells, Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan, and Rose Lam. Production companies: PlayStation Productions, Word Games, The Mighty Mint, and Naughty Dog.

    The soundtrack to The Last of Us  is available everywhere now, and features an original score by 2-time Academy Award winner Gustavo Santaolalla and David Fleming. Having scored both the original video game and its 2020 sequel, Gustavo Santaolalla builds on his previous work, expanding the intimate, guitar-driven soundscape to deliver a score as emotionally laden as the story itself. In addition to the score, the album also includes Nick Offerman's cover of Linda Ronstadt's "Long Long Time" and Jessica Mazin's cover of Depeche Mode's "Never Let Me Down Again." 

    The Last of Us: The Complete First Season will be available to purchase Digitally* on April 11, 2023 from Amazon Prime Video, AppleTV, Google Play, Vudu and more. 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD will be available July 18, 2023 to purchase online and in-store at major retailers.
