Own the Action-Packed Unrated Thriller Den of Thieves Available on Digital HD 4/10, Blu-ray and DVD 4/24

The inevitable clash between an unbeatable crew addicted to heists and an elite unit of Los Angeles detectives comes to a head in Den of Thieves, arriving on Digital on April 10, 2018 and on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on April 24, 2018 from STXfilms and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Directed by Christian Gudegast (London Has Fallen), the film blurs the lines between good and evil by examining the rivalry between a police unit, led by Gerard Butler (London Has Fallen), and a crew of career criminals featuring Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (Get Rich or Die Trying), Pablo Schreiber (13 Hours), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton) and Evan Jones (A Million Ways to Die in the West).

Den of Thieves is a gritty Los Angeles crime saga which follows the intersecting and often personally connected lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff’s Department and the state’s most successful bank robbery crew as they plan a seemingly impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank of Downtown Los Angeles. Filled with gripping, explosive action and an ending that left audiences stunned, Den of Thieves is an electrifying game of cat-and-mouse that critics call “a gritty, realistic, engrossing LA heist movie” (Michael Rougeau, Gamespot).

In addition to both the action-packed theatrical version and the extended unrated version with footage not seen in theaters, Den of Thieves on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital also features never-before seen bonus content including an alternate ending, outtakes and deleted scenes, and insightful commentary from the filmmakers.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle debuts a new Gag Reel

 

Dear White People Season One arrives on DVD and Digital May 8

Based on Justin Simien’s critically acclaimed film of the same name, the refreshing and thought-provoking satire Dear White People Season One arrives on DVD and Digital May 8 from Lionsgate. Set among a diverse group of students of color as they navigate a predominantly white Ivy League college, Dear White People Season One “gives you an abundance of characters to care about and entertains with its inspired, hilarious storytelling” (Entertainment Weekly). The show stars Logan Browning (TV’s “Meet the Browns,” “Hit the Floor”), Brandon P. Bell (TV’s “Insecure”), DeRon Horton (TV’s “Lethal Weapon”), Antoinette Robertson (TV’s “Heart of Dixie,” “Atlanta”), John Patrick Amedori (TV’s “Gossip Girl,” “Hindsight”), Ashley Blaine Featherson (TV’s “Glee”), and guest stars Marque Richardson (TV’s “True Blood,” “The Newsroom”), with Featherson, Richardson, and Pell reprising their original roles from the film in this timely comedy. The series is produced by Lionsgate for Netflix, and received a very rare and coveted 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

 

Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university, where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, Dear White People Season One is a send-up of the now post-postracial America that tells the universal story of finding one’s own identity and forging a wholly unique path. The satirical series – which picks up where the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name left off – follows a group of Winchester University students of color as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof), and activism in the millennial age. Through its absurdist lens, Dear White People Season One leads with laughter as it utilizes biting irony, self-deprecation, and sometimes brutal honesty to hold a mirror up to the issues plaguing society today.

 

The series is created and executive produced by Simien (Dear White People), who also directed the first episode. Yvette Lee Bowser (TV’s “Black-ish,” “Living Single”) serves as showrunner and executive producer, with Stephanie Allain Bray (Hustle & Flow, Dear White People) and Julia Lebedev (The Dinner, Dear White People) also serving as executive producers.

 

The Dear White People Season One DVD and Digital special features include two never-before-seen featurettes, “Dear White People: Art as Activism” and “Filming Chapter V,” and two audio commentaries on episodes “Chapter I” and “Chapter X” with Justin Simien. “Dear White People: Art as Activism” explores the show’s multidimensional characters from the cast, showrunner, creator, and costume designer’s perspective. “Filming Chapter V” centers on the Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) directed episode, “Chapter V,” and why it’s a powerful episode meant to be discussed. The Dear White People Season One DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98.

 

DVD / DIGITAL SPECIAL FEATURES

  • “Dear White People: Art As Activism” Featurette
  • “Filming Chapter V” Featurette
  • Audio Commentaries for Chapters I and X with Creator Justin Simien

Aloha, Bobby and Rose (1975) by Floyd Mutrux coming to Blu-ray

Doppelgänger Releasing and Scorpion Releasing will issue on Blu-ray the affectionately remembered 1975 cult flick ALOHA, BOBBY AND ROSE, about two young L.A. people who meet and share the dream of ditching the seedy side of Hollywood for the easy life of Hawaii. But will a cherry red 1968 hot rod be enough to get them to paradise? 

ALOHA, BOBBY AND ROSE makes its North American Blu-ray debut remastered with a high definition transfer via a brand-new HD scan of the original  (IP), along with extensive color correction.  

Written and directed by Floyd  (The Hollywood KnightsAmerican Hot Wax), ALOHA, BOBBY AND ROSE sets its sights on the good-looking titular twosome: Bobby (Paul le Mat, American Graffiti), who has a ‘68 Camaro and a dead-end job; and Rose (Dianne Hull, The Onion Field), who’s got a five-year-old son and a nowhere life. The two meet and quickly fall in love, which gives way to Rose’s fantasy of leaving the Hollywood streets behind and saying “aloha” to life in exotic Hawaii. But when a seemingly safe attempt to rob a liquor store to bankroll their journey goes tragically awry, Bobby and Rose find themselves on the run from the law…and for their lives. Barreling across nighttime L.A. in a bid to make it to the tropics, the young lovers learn that “aloha” can also mean “goodbye.” 

Featuring a stunning Hollywood-after-dark sheen by legendary cinematographer William S. Fraker (Rosemary’s BabyHeaven Can Wait), ALOHA, BOBBY AND ROSE co-stars such familiar faces as Robert  (Revenge of the Nerds), Tim McIntire (The Choirboys) and, in his first credited feature film role, Edward James Olmos (Stand and Deliver).  

Doppelgänger Releasing and Scorpion Releasing will release ALOHA, BOBBY AND ROSE on Blu-ray for the first time in the United States on April 17, 2018 (prebook March 13, 2018). The Blu-ray, which includes new on-camera interviews with actors Paul Le Mat and Dianne Hull and writer/director Floyd , carries the suggested retail price of $29.95. 

More information on ALOHA, BOBBY AND ROSE may be found on the DOPPELGÄNGER RELEASING website at https://www.musicboxfilms.com/aloha. 

Never Before Available on Digital Platforms, THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: THE LOST EPISODES, Premieres on iTunes and Amazon on 3/9

This March, lovers of landmark TV and classic comedy will be able to reacquaint themselves with one of the best hours ever on TV with the release of THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: THE LOST EPISODES, VOLUMES 1-3 to both iTunes and Amazon by Time Life. Never before available on any digital platform, the three “Best of” compilations, featuring rarely-seen fan-favorite episodes from the first five years of Burnett’s eponymous series, will be specially priced the first week of release at $9.99, with individual episodes available for $1.99. Following that, the compilations will be available for $14.99.
 
From 1967 to 1978, THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW tickled America’s funny bone on CBS with a blend of comedy, song and dance that made the irreverent, hilarious program “Must See TV” decades before another network coined the phrase. Carol and her madcap, uber-talented cast of comic actors –Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, Lyle Waggoner, and later Tim Conway and Dick Van Dyke — took to the airwaves and entertained millions each week, joined by some of the biggest stars in the business. Ad-libs and the occasional flubbed line brought a spontaneity to the screen that was absent from most other variety shows. Little did they know that THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW would become an Emmy® Award-winning program and survive the changing tastes of TV audiences to run eleven seasons and become one of the most iconic TV Variety Shows in history.
Each digital volume of THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: THE LOST EPISODES includes vintage, hand-picked shows from the first five seasons of the series, and, up until 2015, these “lost” episodes had never resurfaced – no reruns, streaming video or DVDs.
VOLUME 1 includes such classic sketches as “Carol and Sis,” “The Charwoman,” and “As the Stomach Turns”; among the guest stars featured are Lucille Ball, Eddie Albert, Chita Rivera, Bob Newhart, Jim Nabors, Paul Lynde, Bing Crosby, Don Adams, Phyllis Diller, Andy Griffith, Bernadette Peters, Cass Elliot and more.
VOLUME 2 features a “Salute to Warner Brothers” with Mel Tormé and Soupy Sales, Carol’s tour-de-force impersonation of Joan Crawford and the classic sketch, “The Ham Actors.” Showbiz icons and performers appearing include Jonathan Winters, Dionne Warwick, Joan Rivers, Sonny & Cher, Nanette Fabray, Shirley Jones, Ken Berry and a special cameo by Ronald Reagan.
VOLUME 3 includes more “Charwoman,” Harvey, Carol, Lyle and Lucille Ball lampooning modern morality in their version of the hit movie Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice andTim Conway’s “Oldest Man” masterminding a jewelry heist that literally has him going in circles. Guest stars featured in this volume include Ray Charles, George Carlin, Mike Douglas, Martha Raye, Lana Turner and Ricardo Montalban.
In addition to THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: THE LOST EPISODES, VOLUME 1-3, Time Life has also released THE BEST OF THE DEAN MARTIN CELEBRITY ROASTS: VOLUMES 1-3 on iTunes. And even more TV classics will follow on leading digital platforms in 2018!
