Cutthroat Island Blu-ray Disc
Cutthroat Island, the fun-filled, action-packed pirate movie starring Academy Award® winner Geena Davis (The Accidental Tourist, Best Supporting Actress, 1988), Emmy® nominee Matthew Modine (HBO’s And the Band Played On) and Academy Award® nominee Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon, Best Leading Actor, 2008), comes to Blu-ray Disc this August. A tidal wave of nonstop excitement, the film is a swashbuckling saga of ruthless pirates, buried treasure and bloodthirsty betrayal.  Newly swabbed in a new 1080p high-definition transfer and 7.1 DTS HD Master Audio, and decked out with bonus materials including an archival featurette with interviews with cast/crew, audio commentary and the original theatrical trailer, this Blu-ray edition sets a course for adventure!

After the death of her father, Morgan Adams (Davis) discovers part of a treasure map tattooed on his head.  With the help of William Shaw (Modine), a convict she buys at an auction, Morgan hits the high seas to recover the remaining sections.  However, she is not alone: her murderous uncle Dawg (Langella), who holds the puzzle’s final piece, also seeks the gold.  With a mutinous crew and the soldiers of the British crown in hot pursuit, Morgan and William set sail for Cutthroat Island, where the treasure – and danger – awaits.

The Ninth Gate Blu-ray Disc
The Ninth Gate makes its long-awaited debut on Blu-ray Disc from Lionsgate.  Directed by Academy Award® winner Roman Polanski (The Pianist, 2002), the film stars three-time Academy Award® nominee Johnny Depp (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Finding Neverland, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl) as Dean Corso, an unscrupulous rare-book dealer who is hired to locate the last remaining copies of a demonic manuscript with the power to summon the Devil.  Corso must overcome both physical and supernatural obstacles as he finds himself embroiled in a deadly conspiracy and, ultimately, a confrontation with the devil incarnate.  The Blu-ray Disc features a newly remastered 1080P High Definition Widescreen presentation of the film and 7.1 DTS HD Master Audio as well as bonus materials that include audio commentary by Polanski, a “making-of” featurette, storyboard selections and a gallery of satanic drawings.

Replicant Blu-ray Disc
The future’s most ruthless killer comes to Blu-ray Disc!  Replicant, starring action legend Jean-Claude Van Damme (JCVD), follows the story of a group of scientists that create a genetic clone of a serial killer to help catch the real killer.  The Blu-ray Disc includes a newly remastered 1080P High Definition Widescreen version of the film with 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio.  The disc also features audio commentary from Van Damme, deleted scenes and storyboards.

During a murder spree, precious DNA is left behind that allows a secret government agency to render a killer’s perfect duplicate.  This replicated clone represents the agency’s best and only chance at capturing this mad killer on the loose.  Can it lead the police to the original killer before he strikes again?  Between them, a breathtaking war will be waged and only one will win.

See No Evil Blu-ray Disc
The action-packed film See No Evil makes its Blu-ray Disc debut this August.  Directed by award-winning music video director Gregory Dark (Britney Spears, Ice Cube, Outkast) and starring WWE Superstar Kane (TV’s “WWE Judgment Day,”), See No Evil is a terrifying tale about a group of friends who are stalked by a serial killer.  The Blu-ray Disc features a newly remastered 1080P High Definition Widescreen version of the film with 7.1 DTS HD Master Audio, as well as exciting bonus features that include audio commentaries, two featurettes and storyboard-to-film comparisons.

Equipped with a rusty steel plate screwed into his skull and razor-sharp fingernails that pluck out his victims’ eyes, reclusive psychopath Jacob Goodnight is holed up in the long-abandoned and rotting Blackwell Hotel, alone with his nightmares until eight petty criminals show up for community service duty along with the cop who put a bullet in Jacob’s head four years ago.  When one of their own is kidnapped by the killer and with her fate uncertain, the remaining lawbreakers must fight this indestructible force of nature who has a violent score to settle.
