blood-bath-1966-new-on-blu-ray

Product Description: The films of Roger Corman are often as well-known for their behind-the-scenes stories as they are the ones unfolding on the screen. He famously made Little Shop of Horrors in just two days using sets left over from A Bucket of Blood and shot The Terror over a long weekend because bad weather prevented him from playing tennis. But none of these tales is quite so complex, or quite so extraordinary, as the making of Blood Bath.

The saga began when Corman invested in a Yugoslavian Krimi-like picture entitled Operation Titian just prior to it going into production. Insisting it be filmed in English, he sent actors William Campbell and Patrick Magee, and uncredited story editor Francis Ford Coppola (all fresh from Dementia 13), to Dubrovnik to make a US-friendly movie but wasn't satisfied with the end results. First it was re-cut and re-scored to create Portrait in Terror, a film more in line with drive-in tastes, then it was handed over to Jack Hill (Spider Baby), followed by Stephanie Rothman (Terminal Island), each undertaking reshoots that resulted in a vampire picture by the name of Blood Bath. One final twist was provided when a TV version was required, chopping scenes and adding others to createm Track of the Vampire. For this release Arrow Video has searched through the vaults to bring you all four versions of Blood Bath, newly restored from the best materials available to provide a definitive release of one of Corman's craziest ventures.

deepwater-horizon-new-trailer-and-character-posters

A new trailer and five character posters for the true story drama "Deepwater Horizon" have been released online.

The film chronicles the events of April 20th, 2010, when the titular oil rig located in the Gulf of Mexico exploded and generated the worst oil spill in U.S. history. Of the 126 crew members on board the rig, 11 were killed in the explosion. The focus of the film will be on these men and their heroism, rather than the usual political rhetoric, which I think is a good thing.

Directed by Peter Berg ("Lone Survivor"), the film stars Mark Wahlberg, Kate Hudson, Gina Rodriguez, Dylan O’Brien, Kurt Russell, Ethan Suplee and John Malkovich.

"Deepwater Horizon" opens in theaters on September 30th.

Check out the trailer and posters after the jump.

the-player-1992-criterion-collection-new-on-dvd-and-blu-ray

Product Description: A Hollywood studio executive with a shaky moral compass (Tim Robbins) finds himself caught up in a criminal situation that would be right at home in one of his movie projects, in this biting industry satire from Robert Altman. Mixing elements of film noir with sly insider comedy, The Player, based on a novel by Michael Tolkin, functions as both a nifty stylish murder story and a commentary on its own making, and it is stocked with a heroic supporting cast (Peter Gallagher, Whoopi Goldberg, Greta Scacchi, Dean Stockwell, Fred Ward) and a lineup of star cameos that make for an astonishing Hollywood who’s who. This complexly woven grand entertainment (which kicks off with one of American cinema’s most audacious and acclaimed opening shots) was the film that marked Altman’s triumphant commercial comeback in the early 1990s.

in-theaters-x-men-apocalypse-alice-through-the-looking-glass-the-ones-below-chevalier

This week in theaters it's a deadly battle between mutants and Wonderland creatures. 20th Century Fox's "X-Men: Apocalypse" and Disney's "Alice Through the Looking Glass" are here at last, each one aiming at the fun-seeking demographic, but who will win ?

According to the critics both films are quite flawed, but at least the Marvel mutant saga has a solid fanbase. Disney's film follows in the footsteps of 2010's "Alice in Wonderland" which isn't getting a lot of love today, despite earning a lot of money back then. So, the Alice sequel could turn out to be a flop.

Meanwhile, in limited release, the thriller "The Ones Below" and the Greek comedy "Chevalier" are worth mentioning. More about each movie after the jump.

Synopses, details, critical reception, trailers, clips and more after the jump.

chevalier-movie-trailer-images-and-posters

The official trailers, images and posters for the Greek comedy "Chevalier" have been released online.

The film is directed by Athina Rachel Tsangari and it tells the story of six men on a fishing trip on a luxury yacht in the middle of the Aegean Sea, who decide to play a game designed to determine who is the best man.

The cast features Vangelis Mourikis, Nikos Orphanos, Yorgos Pirpassopoulos, Makis Papadimitriou, Sakis Rouvas and Panos Koronis.

"Chevalier" begins a limited run in U.S. theaters today.

Check out the trailer, images and posters after the jump.

the-ones-below-movie-trailer-clip-images-and-posters

Today we have the official trailer, a clip, several images and two posters for the thriller "The Ones Below".

Written and directed by David Farr ("The Night Manager"), the film stars Clémence Poésy and Stephen Campbell Moore as a young couple awaiting the birth of their first child, who become involved in a psychological battle of wills with their new tenants, played by David Morrissey and Laura Birn.

"The Ones Below" begins a limited run in U.S. theaters today.

Check out the trailer, clip, images and posters after the jump.

alice-through-the-looking-glass-movie-clips-pictures

Disney has released six new clips and twenty-six images for the sequel "Alice Through the Looking Glass". The film is now in theaters.

From the critics' point of view, the sequel is a rare Disney misfire. Despite being visually impressive, the film lacks the charm of Lewis Carroll's wonderful world and fails to deliver a worthy story. Some say it improves on Burton's previous film by being less dark and violent, but that isn't saying much.

Directed by James Bobin ("The Muppets"), the film stars Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen, Rhys Ifans, Matt Lucas, Ed Speelers, Stephen Fry, Alan Rickman, Toby Jones, Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall, Paul Whitehouse and Barbara Windsor.

Check out the trailer and posters after the jump.

x-men-apocalypse-movie-clips

Five new clips for "X-Men: Apocalypse" have been released online.

The film is now in theaters and has already received many mixed reviews. The first thing many say is wrong with this sequel is that no matter how hard director Bryan Singer and writer Simon Kinberg may try, it feels terribly overcrowded. Furthermore, the film also features a weak villain, choppy narrative and loud, overblown spectacle. It probably sounds worse than it really is, but it's still a step down from the awesomeness of "X-Men: Days of Future Past".

The film stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Oscar Isaac, Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Munn, Ben Hardy, Nicholas Hoult, Alexandra Shipp, Rose Byrne, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Lucas Till, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Josh Helman and Lana Condor.

Watch the clips after the jump.

"Deus Ex: Mankind Divided" will be released on August 23rd on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
