TEACHER | Thriller Starring David Dastmalchian and Kevin Pollak Lands in August 2019
Cinedigm has announced it will release the psychological thriller Teacher on digital, DVD, and VOD on August 13, 2019, following a limited theatrical engagement.
Written and directed by Adam Dick, the film stars David Dastmalchian (Ant-Man, upcoming Dune and The Suicide Squad) and Kevin Pollak (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” The Usual Suspects) and was produced by Matthew Helderman (Buffalo 8 and BondIt Media Capital) and Zachary Kamen. Teacher opens August 2 in Los Angeles at the Laemmle Glendale, with an additional one-night-only screening in Chicago at the Logan Theater on August 3 (Q&A with director and cast to follow).
Adam Dick’s narrative debut as a director, Teacher is an unflinching portrayal of trauma as a contagion passed between people and generations, all set within the prism of modern suburbia. The film follows the downward spiral of a high school English teacher (Dastmalchian) as he goes to disturbing lengths to protect his favorite students from bullies and challenge the power of a wealthy patron (Pollak) within the community.
THE IRON ORCHARD on Digital, Blu-ray & DVD August 6th
Santa Rita Film Co announced today that their Texas drama The Iron Orchard will be available on digital, Blu-RayTM, and DVD on August 6, 2019. Based on Tom Pendleton’s 1966 novel and directed by Ty Roberts, The Iron Orchard stars Lane Garrison (Shooter, Camp X-Ray), Ali Cobrin (Neighbors, American Reunion), Austin Nichols (“Ray Donovan,” “One Tree Hill”) and Lew Temple (Kidnap, “The Walking Dead”).
Filled with themes of greed, love, and the unrelenting pursuit of success, The Iron Orchard transports the audience to mid-century Texas where oil ruled the land. The film follows Jim McNeely (Garrison) on his journey to overcome his past by becoming an independent oil tycoon. Fueled by ambition, he is forced to navigate through both the oilmen in the fields and Texas high society to ultimately figure out what kind of legacy he wants to leave.
“I wanted to tell a story that was deeply personal, but also unquestionably universal,” said Writer/Director Ty Roberts. “The Iron Orchard is a film that undeniably captures the tough, but ambitious spirit of Texas, and we’re excited to be able to share the story with a wider audience.”

Epic Anniversary Set ‘Sesame Street: 50 Years and Counting’ Comes to DVD October 1 from Shout! Factory
From the five boroughs of New York City to the beaches of Los Angeles, and every town in between, Sesame Street has been entertaining and teaching children for 50 years. Now, on October 1, 2019, Shout Kids and Sesame Workshop proudly present a birthday bash for the beloved brand with the release of Sesame Street: 50 Years and Counting on DVD and digital download.
The first disc in this very special 2-disc set features some of the greatest Sesame Street moments from yesterday and today: fan-favorite animations like “Ladybug Picnic” and “Pinball Number Count”; new and classic songs from Kermit the Frog’s soulful “It’s Not Easy Being Green” to will.i.am’s empowering anthem, “What I Am”; and timeless interactions between children and the Sesame Street Muppets. 50 Years and Counting will also let fans revisit Sesame Street’s many unforgettable celebrity appearances: Patti LaBelle putting a glamorous spin on the alphabet song; Amy Poehler teaching the gang new vocabulary words; R.E.M.’s joyful rendition of “Furry Happy Monsters”; Ricky Gervais trying — and failing — to sing Elmo to sleep; and other guest appearances made pop culture headlines while embodying Sesame Street’s inclusive lessons and values.
The second disc is an exclusive collection of the most iconic “Street Story” segments from Sesame Street’s 50-year history. With help from kids’ favorite characters, the early childhood experts behind Sesame Street helped generations of families tackle big conversations through little moments like these: the neighborhood’s poignant farewell to Mr.Hooper; the dramatic reveal of Big Bird’s not-so-imaginary friend, Mr. Snuffleupagus; and the debut of Julia, the first Sesame Street Muppet with autism.
50 Years and Counting also lets fans revisit the lighter side of the Street: Super Grover’s many crash-landings, Bert and Ernie’s classic comedy-duo antics, moments with human friends like Bob, Maria, Luis, Susan, and Gordon, and much more. There are even a few never-before-seen outtakes with Jim Henson and other original performers! With over five-and-a-half hours of content from all five decades of the beloved show, 50 Years and Counting offers something for everyone – from the very young to the young at heart.
Customers who buy the set at select retailers will also receive an exclusive Sesame Street frame, while supplies last. The frame features fan-favorite characters and is the perfect place to house a 2”x 3” photo of a special Sesame Street fan.
Sesame Street’s yearlong 50th anniversary celebrates the timeless lesson that Sesame Street has always taught: everyone, no matter who they are or where they are from, is equally deserving of respect, opportunity, and joy. Throughout 2019, families everywhere can join all their furry and feathered friends in celebrating Sesame Street’s past, present, and future with a nationwide road trip, celebrity- and fan-fueled social media campaigns, new social impact initiatives, and a star-studded primetime special that will kick off the show’s 50th season.

Such A Funny Life Lands quite the trailer
“Such a Funny Life” is about the Guiterrez family who moves to New York from “nowhere”. Our main character, David grew up in a challenging household with an abusive and plotting father Ralph, and mentally challenged mother Mariah. David is a complete pariah in school and in the street but he is destined to be a comic and entertainer. Through his childhood we follow him as he loses his sister Gabriella, to a tragic death, and then in his teens he falls in love with a complicated and troubled girl named Mariah. He befriends Tito, the responsible kid turned club owner and Rob, the neighborhood leader who turns into the biggest drug dealer in Brooklyn.
We see the evolution of David as he juggles painful circumstances with dire decisions while still honing his ambition to be a successful comic, entertainer and actor. An inevitable story of secrets, loss, and betrayal to reach the top and later forces David to Los Angeles to start a new life where he achieves success in all aspects, albeit with a unknown price on his head and a trail of fire that threatens his family, friends and loved ones that goes deeper than any one of his comedy acts or movie roles.
