One of the Most Riveting Films of the Year – DETROIT Arrives on Blu-ray This December

DETROIT is a film I had plenty of praise for, despite the issues others found and it’s eventual failure at the box office. From Kathryn Bigelow, the award-winning director of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, comes the gripping story of one of the most terrifying secrets in American history. John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) plays a Detroit security guard caught in the crossfire after a late-night police raid sparks a wave of violence that spirals out of control.  Featuring masterful supporting performances by Will Poulter (The Revenant), Algee Smith (Earth to Echo), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner), John Krasinski (“The Office”) and Anthony Mackie (Captain America: Civil War), DETROIT is a “visceral thriller” (Rafer Guzman,Newsday) that “demands to be seen” (Matt Goldberg, Collider).

Christopher Nolan’s DUNKIRK Comes To 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray On December 19th!

One of the year’s most acclaimed films, Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Dunkirk,” arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital this December. From filmmaker Christopher Nolan (“Interstellar,” “Inception,” “The Dark Knight” Trilogy) comes the epic action thriller “Dunkirk.” Nolan directed “Dunkirk” from his own original screenplay, utilizing a mixture of IMAX® and 65mm film to bring the story to the screen. The film was partially shot on location on the beaches of Dunkirk, France, where the actual events unfolded. Said director Christopher Nolan, “I’m excited to be releasing ‘Dunkirk’ on 4K UHD with HDR. The film was shot entirely on the highest definition IMAX and 65mm film and this fantastic new format, with its increased resolution and superior colour reproduction is able to maximize Dunkirk’s impact in the home. The film’s ensemble cast includes Fionn Whitehead, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, Harry Styles, Aneurin Barnard, James D’Arcy and Barry Keoghan, with Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy. “Dunkirk” was produced by Emma Thomas and Christopher Nolan, with Jake Myers serving as executive producer. The behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography Hoyte van Hoytema, production designer Nathan Crowley, editor Lee Smith, costume designer Jeffrey Kurland, visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson and special effects supervisor Scott Fisher.  The music was composed by Hans Zimmer.

The Breakfast Club, Young Mr. Lincoln & More Coming to The Criterion Collection in January 2018

In January, the Criterion Collection will ring in the New Year with John Hughes’s generation-defining high school movie The Breakfast Club, in an edition packed with special features, including extensive new and archival interviews with the film’s iconic cast and fifty minutes of never-before-seen deleted scenes. That’s just the beginning of a month that will also see the releases of two revelatory films by G. W. Pabst: long unavailable and newly restored, Westfront 1918 and Kameradschaft are thrillingly realistic, socially engaged landmarks of early sound cinema. In another rediscovery, our Eclipse line returns with Claude Autant-Lara – Four Romantic Escapes from Occupied France, a quartet of sophisticated, slyly subversive romances from an unsung master. And there’s more: a defiant individual takes on uncaring bureaucracy in I, Daniel Blake, the Palme d’Or-winning drama from veteran British rabble-rouser Ken Loach, in an edition featuring two documentaries surveying the director’s career and working methods; and Young Mr. Lincoln, John Ford’s poetic biopic starring Henry Ford, on Blu-ray for the first time in a new 4K restoration.

‘The Wall’ Signed Poster Giveaway Contest!

In addition to American Made, director Doug Liman also released The Wall earlier this year. It was a tense, low-budget thriller that I quite enjoyed. The story involved two soldier pinned down by an Iraqi sniper and the psychological battle of wills that unfolds during this conflict. The film did its job in mounting a level of suspense, while also showing what Liman could do under stripped down circumstances, which called to mind some of his earliest efforts. The Wall is currently available on Blu-ray and will be making it’s Amazon Prime Video debut on October 20th. In the meantime, you could enter to win a poster of the film signed by director Doug Liman and actors Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena.  Continue on to find out how!

Its Time For The STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Trailer To Begin!

Ah, you sat yourself through a half of a Monday Night Football game that you could’ve cared less about, but were ultimately rewarded when Lucasfilm dropped our first full on trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Rian Johnson’s follow-up to JJ Abrams’ insanely successful The Force Awakens will continue the saga of Rey, Finn, Poe and Kylo Ren and promises more Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia. Joining up on this new film will also be characters like Rose, DJ and Vice Admiral Holdo (Played by Kelly Marie Tran, Benecio del Toro and Laura Dern, respectively). Also at this time, the tickets go on sale and hopefully aren’t crashing every theater and ticket buying’s respective websites as they usually do (You’d think they’d have enough time to perfect and prepare for this, but alas).
