"DARK STAR: H. R. GIGER'S WORLD"--Explore the World of the Alien Creature Creator, On VOD 8/18 & DVD 9/1



Coming to VOD on August 18 and DVD on September 1!
 

DARK STAR: H. R. GIGER'S WORLD

A film by Belinda Sallin
 

“And you thought the stuff in Alien was creepy!”
—The Hollywood Reporter
 

"Dark Star plunges into H. R. Giger’s hellscapes."
—The Village Voice


July 1, 2015: Following its successful nationwide theatrical release, Icarus Films and KimStim are proud to announce the release of DARK STAR: H. R. GIGER'S WORLD, exclusively on VOD from August 18, and then on DVD on September 1, 2015!

Surrealist artist H. R. Giger (1940–2014) terrified audiences with his Oscar-winning monsters in Ridley Scott's ALIEN. Sci-fi, horror, music, album covers, tattoos and fetish art have been influenced by his dark, intricate paintings and sculptures depicting birth, death and sex.

 Both a mesmerizing introduction to Giger's oeuvre and a must-see for Giger devotees, Belinda Sallin's definitive documentary DARK STAR: H. R. GIGER'S WORLD shares the intimate last years of the artist's life and reveals how deeply he resided within his own artistic visions.

Behind the shuttered windows and ivy-covered walls of his residence in Zurich, Switzerland, DARK STAR brings viewers into Giger's mysterious realm: from the first skull he was given by his father at the age of six, to macabre dinner parties with his close-knit team, to the grisly souvenirs from his time spent on the ALIEN set and reminiscences about model Li Tobler, Giger's one-time muse, whose suicide reverberates throughout his work.

"A glimpse inside his Freudian mind."
—Entertainment Weekly

"Goes into the weird, wonderful, and troubled mind of Giger ... a fascinating film."
—Dallas Observer

 The film also addresses Giger's complex relationship to the art world, where he defied traditional categories and embraced commercial projects for musicians including Debbie Harry, Korn, Emerson, Lake and Palmer and the Dead Kennedys. Fittingly enshrined in a museum dedicated to his work, Giger's output includes sculpture, painting, drawing, film and architecture, integrating meticulous technique with a instantly-recognizable sensibility that has inspired generations of nightmares.

DARK STAR had its major theatrical roll out this spring and has played in over 50 cities so far. The DVD and iTunes releases will feature a making-of documentary, and the DVD will also feature galleries of Giger's work and an essay by critic Bilge Ebiri. Director Belinda Sallin is available for interviews.

"A Halloween film for adults!"
—The Bay Area Reporter

"Fanboys and fangirls will surely go wild!"
—San Francisco Chronicle

"Quiet, pensive and not unlike a 90-minute stroll through a Giger gallery, Dark Star does a good job of presenting its subject’s oeuvre in the context of his life story."
—Toronto Star

"THE ANOMALY" Starring Ian Somerhalder -- Arriving October 6th on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment



If you only had 9 minutes and 47 seconds,
what would you do?

 
IAN SOMERHALDER AND NOEL CLARKE REVEAL THE ANOMALY
FROM ANCHOR BAY ENTERTAINMENT
 
The Conspiracy Unfolds October 6th on Blu-ray™ and DVD

BEVERLY HILLS – Ryan Reeve has a problem. After successfully escaping from his kidnappers, he is trying to uncover why some people want him dead. The complication? He can’t spend more than 9 minutes and 47 seconds trying to solve this deadly puzzle. On October 6th, Anchor Bay Entertainment takes viewers into a future filled with technological wonders and shadowy figures with The Anomaly.

Starring “The Vampire Dairies” heartthrob Ian Somerhalder, Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect 1 and 2, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief), Art Parkinson (San Andreas), Luke Hemsworth (Infini) and Brian Cox (X-Men 2, Troy), The Anomaly features cutting-edge visual effects and dazzling production design. Directed by genre favorite Noel Clarke (star of Star Trek Into Darkness, “Doctor Who”) and written by Simon Lewis. SRP is $26.98 for the Blu-ray™, with $22.98 SRP for the DVD. Pre-book is September 2nd.

Traumatized ex-soldier Reeve (Clarke) wakes up in the back of a moving van alongside a young boy (Parkinson) held prisoner. But after helping the boy escape, he comes to the terrifying conclusion that he’s the kidnapper. Even more startling, five years have passed since he was last awake. Ryan soon learns that he’s caught up in a futuristic conspiracy known as “Anomaly,” Ryan’s only connection with reality is the dogged pursuit of Ryan by the elegant but sinister Harkin Langham (Somerhalder), who –when he’s not trying to kill Ryan – explains how to survive his blackouts, lasting exactly 9 minutes and 47 seconds.

As he negotiates switching between parallel universes, Ryan teams up with the mysterious “Dana” (Knapp) to start unraveling the life-threatening mystery in which he’s the explosive center. With Harkin dogging and thwarting his every turn, Ryan must summon all his will to challenge his programmed destiny and regain his humanity.

The Anomaly is produced by UK indie powerhouse companies Unstoppable Entertainment and The Tea Shop and Film Company.

Anchor Bay Entertainment Presents "EARTHFALL" - Coming October 6th to DVD!



GET READY FOR WHAT COULD HAPPEN WHEN PLANETS ALMOST COLLIDE

"EARTHFALL" COMING OCTOBER 6TH TO DVD FROM ANCHOR BAY

On October 6th, Anchor Bay Entertainment releases the sci-fi thriller Earthfall on DVD. Here is the disaster movie that makes San Andreas look like a little shake and a tiny quake, with the outrageous tale of Earth being knocked off of its axis and sent recklessly speeding through space. Will anyone be able to stop all this madness?

Directed by Steven Daniels, Earthfall stars Pressly Coker (The Girl Is in Trouble), Joe Lando (“Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman”), Raffaello Degruttola (Saving Private Ryan) and Diana Hopper (The Wicked). The SRP is $19.98. The pre-book is September 2nd.

The gravity of a rogue planet screaming past Jupiter has flung the Earth from its orbit. Hurled through space, the earth has become a rogue planet itself, causing enormous devastation. The only way the survivors can have a chance is if the Sun can regain its grip on the Earth, and even if it does, the face of the planet will be forever changed. Earthfall asks the questions: If someone told you the world was ending tomorrow, would you believe them? Could you help stop it?

Earthfall is an utterly outlandish and over-the-top sci-fi story that has all the cool and campy ingredients that make for an epic end of world action flick, one that might not be believed…even after it’s seen.

HBO Announces New "Game of Thrones" Steelbook Collectors Sets



HBO Home Entertainment® to Release Game of Thrones®
in New SteelbookTM Collectors Sets

Bestselling Title to be the First TV Show on Blu-rayTM with Dolby Atmos® Moving Audio
 
Features Box Art Inspired by Emmy® Award-Winning Opening Credits
 
Seasons 1 & 2 Available November 3, 2015 in Time for Holiday Gifting Season

New York, N.Y., July 1, 2015 - The smash hit HBO series Game of Thrones has sat atop the Iron Throne of the home entertainment charts as the best-selling TV on Blu-ray/DVD title in each of the last four years. The box sets are popular among fans for their extensive bonus content that takes diehard viewers even further into the world of Westeros. Now a new Steelbook collectors release is bringing a whole new dimension to the series with the addition of a Dolby Atmos soundtrack and brand new box art designed by the team that created the series' Emmy® Award-winning title sequence. Seasons 1 and 2 will be available in the new Steelbook format for $79.98 each on November 3, 2015, just in time for holiday gifting season. Seasons 3 and 4 will release on the heels of the first two seasons, with release date details coming soon.

The Steelbook sets feature brand new box art designed by Elastic, the agency responsible for the series' Emmy® Award-winning opening credits. Each Steelbook showcases a specific location that is significant to that season and includes usable magnets on packaging featuring Game of Thrones sigils and symbols:

o  Season 1 packaging features Winterfell, where fans are introduced to the Stark family in the series premiere. The magnet for Season 1 is the direwolf sigil of House Stark.
o   In Season 2, the Lannisters' influence is keenly felt from the Iron Throne and their sigil is included on packaging set in King's Landing, where the season's pivotal Battle of the Blackwater occurs.
o   Season 3 features the magnet sigil of House Frey and their ancestral seat of the Twins-the location of this season's infamous Red Wedding.
o   Season 4 features the icy landscape of Castle Black and the Wall, where the brothers of the Night's Watch fend off an army of wildlings from the far north. The magnet for this season features a crow and Jon Snow's sword, Longclaw.

In addition to all of the bonus content from the previous Blu-ray sets, the Game of Thrones Steelbook is the first TV on Blu-ray title to be released with the revolutionary new audio technology Dolby Atmos. The Blu-ray features a newly remixed Dolby Atmos soundtrack, which places and moves sounds and music anywhere in the room, including overhead, creating a captivating experience that brings entertainment alive all around the audience. With the new Steelbook set, fans can hear Daenerys's dragons swoop past them and feel the soaring score rise and fall around them. To experience Dolby Atmos at home, Dolby Atmos-enabled AV receivers and additional speakers are required; however, Dolby Atmos soundtracks are fully backward compatible with traditional audio configurations and legacy home entertainment equipment and will automatically play in the best possible way.

Only Six Weeks Left! "The Knick: The Complete First Season" on Blu-ray and DVD August 11



"Fascinating!" - The New York Times

THE KNICK: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

Season One of the Peabody Award-Winning Cinemax® Series
Available August 11, 2015 on Blu-ray™ and DVD

Early Digital HD Release Set for August 3, 2015

New York, N.Y., June 30, 2015 - Modern medicine had to start somewhere. In the hit Cinemax drama series The Knick, from executive producer Steven Soderbergh (who directed all ten episodes), brilliant surgeon John Thackery (Clive Owen in a Golden Globe-nominated performance) pushes the boundaries of medicine, morality and race relations in 1900 at a downtown NYC hospital known as The Knick. The "must watch" (Entertainment Weekly) and "beautifully crafted" (Los Angeles Times) series broke Cinemax viewing records, becoming the most watched first season of any Cinemax Original Series.

Now, fans will have the chance to take home all ten episodes of the debut season when The Knick: Complete First Season comes to Blu-ray with Digital HD ($39.98) and DVD ($29.98) on August 11, 2015. For even earlier access to The Knick, the season will also be released to Digital HD on August 3.

In The Knick, while Dr. Thackery searches to solve a plethora of medical mysteries and develops an unhealthy addiction to cocaine, which was legal at the time, the fate of The Knickerbocker Hospital hangs in the balance. Thanks to the influence of rich patrons like Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance) Thackery is paired against his will with a young black doctor, Algernon Edwards (André Holland), whose intelligence and at-all-costs methods rivals Thackery's, and who is hired over Thackery's protégé, Dr. Everett Gallinger (Eric Johnson). 

Other supporters of Thackery at the hospital include Dr. "Bertie" Chickering Jr. (Michael Angarano), a young surgeon secretly in love with nurse Lucy Elkins (Eve Hewson), who is drawn to Thackery; Sister Harriet (Cara Seymour), who runs the foundling hospital and maternity ward; Herman Barrow (Jeremy Bobb), the Knick's crooked superintendent, awash in debt and willing to risk The Knick's future to pay it off; and Tom Cleary (Chris Sullivan), the ambulance driver who will stoop to the lowest depths to bring the right kind of patients to The Knick.

41ST ANNUAL SATURN AWARDS
 
Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films Recognizes
Anchor Bay Entertainment and Scream Factory™
For “Best DVD/BD Collection Release”
 
BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Four years after the Saturn Awards were born, an indie horror film was released that would transform the genre.  The 1978 John Carpenter terror classic, Halloween, was the beginning of one of the most durable, iconic and copiously studied horror franchises ever created.  Ten films and over three decades later, Anchor Bay Entertainment and Scream Factory released the entire collection on Blu-ray™.  Last evening, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films awarded the Halloween Complete Collection with the Saturn Award for Best DVD/BD Collection release.   Malek Akkad, son of the original film’s producer Moustapha Akkad and producer of the next installment of Halloween, accepted the honor.  The event was held at the Castaway in Burbank, California and attended by an audience of over 600 attendees. 
 
The release was amidst a field of stellar releases including The Exorcist: The Complete Anthology, Stanley Kubrick: The Masterpiece Collection, Steven Spielberg Director's Collection, Toho Godzilla Collection and Universal Classic Monsters: Complete 30 Film Collection. The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films was founded in 1972 by Dr. Donald A. Reed to recognize and honor excellence among filmmakers in the science fiction, fantasy, horror and action/adventure/thriller genres.
 
“A huge thank you to the Academy for this award,” commented Trancas International Films’ President Malek Akkad.  “It is quite symbolic and emotional on many levels.  I have to thank the teams at both Anchor Bay and Shout Factory for the tireless work they did on the collection.  It’s crazy to see all the experiences and fantastic memories condensed into one small box.  I also want to thank all the craftsman – actors, writers, directors and especially John Carpenter and Debra Hill for their work on this amazing franchise.  Most of all though, I want to thank my father, Moustapha Akkad, who produced the first eight films.  He loved the franchise, the fans and everything about it.  It is on his behalf that I’m accepting this Saturn.”

In a historic partnership with Scream Factory, the Halloween Complete Collection Blu-ray™ presents all the films in the iconic Halloween film franchise in a single package – all 10 films packaged together for the first time, including the newly restored Halloween 6 Curse of Michael Myers Producers Cut, the Halloween 35TH Anniversary Edition, the two Rob Zombie films, and hours of NEW bonus features that will thrill fans of the legendary franchise and fans of modern horror cinema.
