SIX GREAT MIRAMAX TITLES UP FOR GRABS

Thursday 8th September 2011

Studio Canal have a great line up of Miramax titles which will be released on Blu-ray on Monday 19 September. And what is even more exciting is that they have given us a copy of each film to giveaway!

THE TALENTED MR RIPLEY is an American psychological thriller written for the screen and directed by Anthony Minghella. It is an adaptation of the Patricia Highsmith 1955 novel of the same name, which was previously filmed as PLEIN SOLEIL (Purple Noon, 1960).

In late 1950s New York, Tom Ripley (MATT DAMON), a young underachiever, is sent to Europe to retrieve a rich and spoiled millionaire playboy, named Dickie Greenleaf (JUDE LAW). But when the errand fails, Ripley takes extreme measures.

Extras include an audio commentary with director Anthony Minghella, Inside The Talented Mr. Ripley feature and cast & crew interviews.

Based on the novel by Jane Austen, EMMA is a period romantic comedy starring GWYNETH PALTROW as Emma Woodhouse, a young woman who imagines herself an authority on matters of the heart. With the best of intentions, Emma plays matchmaker for her friends, most notably her friend Harriet (TONI COLLETTE), who Emma links up with the Reverend Elton (ALAN CUMMING), and her governess, (GRETA SCACCHI), who she introduces to her future husband, Mr. Weston (JAMES COSMO). However, Emma is not nearly as good at playing Cupid as she likes to imagine, and she spends so much time trying to solve the romantic problems of others that it takes her quite some time to realize that she has fallen in love with Mr. Knightly (JEREMY NORTHAM).

Directed by Martin Scorsese and winner of five Academy Awards, THE AVIATOR is the story of aviation pioneer Howard Hughes (LEONARDO DICAPRIO). The film centres on his life from the late 1920s to 1947, during which time he became a successful film producer and an aviation magnate while simultaneously growing more unstable due to severe obsessive-compulsive disorder.

A huge selection of extras includes a filmmaker commentary, A Life Without Limits: The Making Of The Aviator, The Role of Howard Hughes: A History Channel Documentary, The Affliction of Howard Hughes: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, a whole host of featurettes covering many aspects of the production plus much more.

CITY OF GOD was adapted by Fernando Meirelles from the 1997 novel of the same name written by Paulo Lins. It depicts the growth of organized crime in the Cidade de Deus suburb of Rio de Janeiro, between the end of the 1960s and the beginning of the 1980s, with the closure of the film depicting the war between the drug dealer Li’l Zé and criminal Knockout Ned.

Extras include News from a Personal War and A Conversation with Fernando Meirelles.

Directed by Phillip Noyce, THE QUIET AMERICAN is an adaptation of the bestselling novel by Graham Greene.

Saigon, 1952, a beautiful, exotic, and mysterious city caught in the grips of the Vietnamese war of liberation from the French colonial powers. New arrival Alden Pyle (BRENDAN FRASER), an idealistic American aid worker, befriends London Times correspondent Thomas Fowler (MICHAEL CAINE). When Fowler introduces Pyle to his beautiful young Vietnamese mistress Phuong the three become swept up in a tempestuous love triangle that leads to a series of startling revelations and finally - murder.

Extras include an audio commentary, interviews and featurettes.

Directed by Anthony Minghella, THE ENGLISH PATIENT was based on the novel of the same name by Sri Lankan-Canadian writer Michael Ondaatje. It won nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

Beginning in the 1930s, The English Patient tells the story of Count Almásy (RALPH FIENNES) who is a Hungarian map maker employed by the Royal Geographical Society to chart the vast expanses of the Sahara Desert along with several other prominent explorers. As World War II unfolds, Almásy enters into a world of love, betrayal, and politics that is later revealed in a series of flashbacks while Almásy is on his death bed after being horribly burned in a plane crash.

A good selection of extras includes two audio commentaries, a number of featurettes and conversations with Anthony Minghella, Saul Zaentz, Michael Ondaatje and Walter Murch.

To enter, simply send an email to admin@dvdcompare.net with the subject heading MIRAMAX and your full name, postal address (no PO Boxes) and which of the six titles you would like to win to go into the draw.

Monday 9th May 2011

Optimum Releasing have come up trumps again and have provided 3 copies of their latest release, a Blu-Ray Double Play release of Laputa: Castle In The Sky, for us to give away.

From the creators of SPIRITED AWAY comes a homage to Jules Verne and Jonathan Swift. CASTLE IN THE SKY was the first feature film from the now legendary Studio Ghibli and is an unforgettable combination of eco-thriller and aerial escapade, turning a treasure hunt into a fight against evil. Orphan Pazu dreams of escaping from life in his dreary mining village, until the day that the beautiful Sheeta literally falls out of the sky. Round her neck she wears a glowing crystal, a relic of the mighty Levitation Stones that once kept ancient cities floating in the air. Caught up in a race between sky pirates and sinister government agents, Pazu and Sheeta go in search of Laputa, the last of the fabled castles in the sky. Extras include Picture-in-Picture Storyboards and a new Behind the Studio featurette.

AFTER DARK ORIGINALS FESTIVAL

Monday 14th February 2011

After 4 hugely successful years in the US, AFTER DARK: HORRORFEST comes to EMPIRE CINEMAS with the AFTER DARK ORIGINALS; a horror festival weekend around the UK through UK distributor G2 PICTURES – famous for providing cutting edge genre films.

Starting Friday 4th March through to Sunday 6th March horror fans in key cities in the UK and Ireland will get 7 brand new original horror films and enjoy the opportunity to get dressed up and participate in exciting in-cinema activity and competitions.

Films include:
- Husk, starring C.J. Thomason (Harper’s Island) - about a group of friends who become stranded beside a desolate cornfield and find an old farmhouse. They soon discover the house is the centre of a terrifying supernatural ritual.
- Prowl, starring Ruta Gedmintas (Lip Service) and Courtney Hope (CSI:Miami), is a gruesome tale of a bunch of friends who accept a ride from a truck driver and find themselves taken to an abandoned warehouse where they become the prey for blood - thirsty creatures learning to hunt.

Also showing are; Seconds Apart, Scream of the Banshee, Fertile Ground, The Task and 51. Each title will also receive a separate DVD and Blu-Ray release with a complete ‘special edition’ box set scheduled for Halloween 2011.

In the US AFTER DARK ORIGINALS: HORRORFEST has been celebrated with the same enthusiasm as with the Rocky Horror Picture Show. UK fans finally get the chance to become part of one of the most important festivals in the movie calendar.

After Dark Films was formed in 2006 by director/producer Courtney Solomon (An American Haunting, Captivity), and Hong Kong based real estate magnate, Allan Zeman. In November of that year they launched HORRORFEST, playing eight never seen before acquired horror films in an annual weekend-long theatrical event in 500 theatres across the US. Along with their long-term home-entertainment and TV partners Lionsgate & Syfy, in 2010, After Dark expanded its grasp on the horror genre creating AFTER DARK ORIGINALS, tapping into the vast and innovative talent of directors and filmmakers from HORRORFEST’s four years and producing new features themselves.
