MID-WEEK ROUNDUP: The Exorcist II, Fireworks, The Dawn Wall, BlacKkKlansman Prince Song 1

On 9/25, Evil and Extras Abound in the Blu-ray Collector’s Edition of EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC from Scream Factory

Following the enormous box-office success of its supernatural predecessor, EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC premiered in 1977 to deliver another dose of demonic possession to terrified audiences.  And, on September 25, 2018, Scream Factory pays homage to this haunting sequel with the ultimate blu-ray collector’s edition. The 2-disc set, featuring new 2K scans of both theatrical editions from original film elements, is also loaded with specially-created features including an interview with Linda Blair, audio commentary from director John Boorman and much more.
In EXORCIST II: THE HERETIC, bizarre nightmares plague Regan MacNeil (Linda Blair) four years after her possession and exorcism. Has the demon returned? And if so, can the combined faith and knowledge of a Vatican investigator (Richard Burton) and a research specialist (Louise Fletcher) free her from its grasp?
Employing production design and special effects that are dizzily exhilarating and a supporting cast (Max von Sydow, Paul Henreid, James Earl Jones) of compelling distinction, director Boorman (Deliverance) draws us into the tangible experience of evil. We fly with the demon, feel the African landscape vibrate and get engulfed in the terror of swarming locusts as the Exorcist franchise continues to weave its fascinating, frightful spell.
Fans eager to receive the set prior to its release are invited to order the collector’s edition directly from shoutfactory.com; it will ship two weeks early and, while supplies last, the order will be accompanied by a free 18×24 rolled poster featuring Scream Factory’s chilling new artwork.

RT: 100 minutes
In  January,  2015,  American  rock  climbers  Tommy  Caldwell  and  Kevin Jorgeson  captivated  the  world  with their  effort  to  climb  the  Dawn  Wall,  a  seemingly  impossible  3,000  foot  rock  face  in  Yosemite  National  Park,  California. The  pair  lived  on  the  sheer  vertical  cliff  for weeks,  igniting  a  frenzy  of  global  media  attention. But  for Tommy  Caldwell, the  Dawn  Wall  was  much  more than just  a  climb.  It  was  the  culmination of  a  lifetime  defined  by  overcoming  obstacles. At  the  age  of 22,  the  climbing  prodigy  was  taken  hostage  by  rebels  in  Kyrgyzstan.  Shortly  after,  he  lost  his  index  finger in  an  accident,  but  resolved  to  come  back  stronger.  When  his  marriage  fell apart,  he  escaped  the  pain  by  fixating  on the  extraordinary  goal  of  free  climbing  the  Dawn  Wall.    Blurring  the  line  between  dedication  and  obsession,  Caldwell and  his  partner  Jorgeson  spend  six  years  meticulously  plotting  and  practicing  their  route.  On  the  final  attempt,  with  the world  watching,  Caldwell  is  faced  with  a  moment  of  truth.  Should  he  abandon  his  partner  to  fulfill  his  ultimate  dream, or risk  his  own  success  for  the  sake  of  their  friendship?

The Dawn Wall is a film by Red Bull Media House in association with Sender Films.
