New THE EXPENDABLES 2 Explosive Clip

Can't wait to see The Expendables get back to work in THE EXPENDABLES 2? We can't either…

SEE THE RETURN OF THE BIG GUNS WHEN THE EXPENDABLES 2 HITS THEATERS ON AUGUST 17TH!

Ain't It Cool News got their hands on this exclusive clip from the film.



Your favorite action heroes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, also Jean Claude Van Damme with Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Scott Adkins and Yu Nan are joining forces to save the world in THE EXPENDABLES 2.

The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal...

Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) -- with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard -- are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother.

MAGIC MIKE Review By:Ursula What Do The Ladies Think?

MAGIC MIKE Review
By:Ursula

Now let's get a woman point of view about the film.


MAGIC MIKE Review By: MattInRC Is It Only For The Ladies?-


For years, ladies have had to endure the exhibition of naked women on the big screen. We have seen them standing around in brothels, as well as crawling half naked and spinning around poles. Finally women have their own steamy movie to ogle over some piping hot buttery popcorn! This is a movie full of glistening muscles, sexy smiles, and naughty dance moves. The eye candy and hypnotic male splendor is exhilarating! Most of the male review shows (stripper dance numbers) are highly engaging in MAGIC MIKE. The shows come across a little bit stiff (due to some silly props) in the beginning then begin to kick into high gear. There are dance acts including fire men (my personal favorite, Joe Manganiello, from True Blood), rappers, snipers, army officers, and construction workers. There are plenty of rock hard abs and firm butt cheeks. So ladies get your tickets early because the male review show is about to begin! I can guarantee that the lines will be long. I know you probably don’t care too much about the acting; you just want those sexy men to bring it! Let me tell you, they will! You may want to get an extra large soda too, because it will get hot up in there!! Significant others should be forewarned. Your woman will be excited when she gets home.


The first scene opens up with Dallas (Matthew McConaughey), wearing a cowboy hat, chaps (later to be completely removed to only a G-string) and a leather vest, with a chiseled and ripped rock hard body. Then, BAM!!!! Next ….Channing Tatum’s bear bum getting up from a romp in the sack (two women) and heading for the little boys room (complete backside view)……….


So yes, this movie displays all kinds of male goodness. It will make any lady excited, and giddy as a German in a sausage shop. There are a few bare breasted women as well (showing some kindness to the men that get dragged to see it). Channing Tatum was an especially talented dancer. His dancing performances were by far some of my favorite tantalizing scenes. His performances were loosely based on his own experiences. He really does steal the spotlight with his popping and locking. He is smooth, strong, sleek and delicious! When this comes out on blue ray I think I may have to watch his dance scenes several times over. His ability to capture his audience through dance was hypnotizing! I think I may be blushing just writing about it.


Dallas (McConaughey) is the ring leader, the owner of the Tampa club Xquisite! He is wild, crazy, and really knows how to get a bunch of excited ladies to go bonkers. He wants their money and knows how to get them to throw it. He gets them to yelp, scream and holler! He has no inhibitions and is perfect for this part. He brings all of the stardom to the stage. He can carry that sexy and wild lead role like no else could have. He was fun, naughty, and dares you to enjoy it! He is all about the bottom dollar, and has his sights set high to open a club in Miami.


Magic Mike (Channing Tatum) takes a young 19 year old boy, Adam, under his wing and exposes him to the ways of stripper life: partying hard, hot women, money, and the stage. He is generous with Adam (Alex Pettyfer, who looks a lot like Jude Law) and treats him like a little brother. Adam makes some unwise decisions and gets in harm’s way several times (even when warned). Unfortunately, Mike is not always there to protect him. Adam’s sister, Paige (Cody Horn) is a grounded medical assistant. She does not approve nor is she impressed with “Magic Mike”. She attempts to make Mike accountable to her, by insisting that he watch out for her little brother. Adam seems pretty clueless most of the time (typical 19yr old). Paige’s aloofness becomes a super challenge for Mike. He is used to women throwing themselves at him. While he has hot booty calls, they soon fall short of the depth he craves to have more of in his life. Once he gets a taste of Paige’s grounded and un-jaded ways, he is hooked. It is sort of a typical love story in that every man needs a woman that makes him want to be a better man. Every woman needs a man that will prove he is worth her precious time. His real dream is to make one –of –a-kind furniture. This dream comes off as far-fetched, while he gets rejected at every corner to make things happen. He finds himself compromised and unhappy.


The exposure to the lifestyle of sex, drugs and male stripping to a young 19yr old underage boy is hardly believable. He is not legal to even be in the club let alone dance there. This reality gets tossed aside rather quickly when he gets thrown out to a screaming crowd of women and somehow wow’s them with his innocence. They could have made it out to be a lot worse. Adam does not have a lot of depth. He gets caught up in everything he should not. Drugs suck him in and he gets caught up in the worst parts of a stripper lifestyle. He is sneaky and dumb. He never quite has anything to say of any value. They should have directed the acting of his character and given it more depth. I felt that for the role he played he should have held a stronger presence. His only saving grace is his pretty face.


The dialogue is left to Mike and Paige. If you are expecting to see a lot of speaking parts from the supporting actors, such as Ken (Matt Bomer from White Collar) and Big Dick Richie (Joe Maganiello from True Blood), you will be disappointed. They only have a few lines here and there and are basically featured as stage performers. Steven Soderbergh (Director) simply brought them on board to be hot, look hot, and dance hot! They do not however disappoint on stage. Some of the numbers are a little bit too uptight and short of smiles. I did not care for the umbrella number in the beginning. However, there are others that are quite delicious, naughty, even saucy.

The movie was a project of Channing Tatum's, based roughly on his experiences of being a male stripper in Tampa, Florida when he was 19years old. He was one of the producers and had a huge part in all of the performances. He carried the star role amazingly and brought a lot of depth to the character of “Magic Mike”. He was a guy trying to live out his dream and make his “real” career happen, while getting caught up in living the high life.

Mike goes through a metamorphosis of sorts and comes out broken in character and somehow saved by Paige in the end. He finds himself not fitting in to the stripper lifestyle after being burned financially and feeling like he may be selling himself short. He goes through all the hard knocks he needs to get his head on straight. I can’t say the same for little Adam. However one could only hope.

COMPLIANCE Official Poster

The Playlist! Got their hands on the first poster for the upcoming film COMPLIANCE.


Becky and Sandra aren’t the best of friends. Sandra is a middle-aged manager at a fast-food restaurant; Becky is a teenaged counter girl who really needs the job. One stressful day (too many customers and too little bacon), a police officer calls, accusing Becky of stealing money from a customer’s purse, which she vehemently denies. Sandra, overwhelmed by her managerial responsibilities, complies with the officer’s orders to detain Becky. This choice begins a nightmare that tragically blurs the lines between expedience and prudence, legality and reason.

Craig Zobel (his The Great World of Sound appeared at the Festival in 2007) returns with this riveting film, based on a true story. The cast delivers hauntingly authentic performances that make the appalling events unfolding onscreen all the more difficult to watch, but impossible to turn away from. Delving into the complex psychology of the real-life story under its sensationalized surface, COMPLIANCE proves that sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction.

COMPLIANCE is in theaters on August 17th from Magnolia Pictures.

MAGIC MIKE Review By: MattInRC Is It Only For The Ladies?

MAGIC MIKE Review
By: MattInRC

MAGIC MIKE is a surprisingly deep and serious film about love and male stripping that fails to keep our attention. Imagine that.

MAGIC MIKE Takes It All Off In This International Trailer-


Director Steven Soderbergh expresses the challenges of contemporary life in a way few do. From Ocean's Eleven to Traffic, it's all about the great price some people pay to get ahead and the lives they ultimately affect. MAGIC MIKE tries to make the case that those involved in the 'male review entertainment' field deal with problems of their own making, partially due to the nature of their chosen career (if one could call it that). And while the film is remarkably deep in expressing this lifestyle in funny and unique ways, the film loses steam midway through the third act, becoming a shadow of what it could have been.


Mike (Channing Tatum, GI Joe) is a great stripper - he knows how to work a crowd, and the girls swoon when he pops, gyrates, or removes his shirt for those elusive ones, fives, and tens. Don't even ask what he'll do for a twenty. Yet, it's not the career he wants for himself. Determined to start his own furniture-making business, Mike works an odd collection of jobs when not dancing, from roofer to car detailer, hoping to make enough to convince a bank - any bank - that his low credit score doesn't tell the whole story. And while he's a shrewd money-maker, the stripping lifestyle comes with too many excesses that keep him from making a break: the fast women and faster lifestyle are an incredible rush for him and fellow beefcakes Richie (Joe Manganiello, True Blood), Ken (Matt Bomer, White Collar), Tito (Adam Rodriguez, CSI: Miami) and club owner Dallas (Matthew McConaughey, The Lincoln Lawyer). Mike hooks up frequently with the sexually available Joanna (Olivia Munn, Iron Man 2), but a deep relationship is elusive at best. When Mike meets the aimless but muscle-bound 19-year-old Adam (Adam Pettyfer, In Time) at a roofing job, Mike recruits him into 'the business,' granting him the moniker "The Kid." This is not what Adam's sister Brooke (Cody Horn, White Collar) has in mind for him, as Adam's life has one big unfulfilled moment. As Adam's life begins to descend into a mess of drugs, drug dealing, and sex, Mike must choose between his growing affection for Brooke and all the trappings of the industry, all while trying to negotiate a business partnership with Dallas that's not mutually shared.


Both Tatum and McConaughey turn in stellar performances, with Tatum demonstrating his Step Up dance moves weren't an aberration and McConaughey proving he still has the knack to completely immerse himself in a role. McConaughey steals every scene, with his "Ah right, ah right" southern drawl and chiseled pectorals. Like every Soderbergh film, there's a number of well-known actors surrounded by a supporting cast who serve as leads in their own careers. This is the star power which the director consistently attracts, with the exception of Horn who seems strikingly out of place here. The chemistry between her and Tatum feels forced, and the two never gel enough that audiences hope they will eventually get together. In a lifestyle where beautiful and easy women are the order of the day, Horn's plain looks and sulking features create an uneasy tension that doesn't feel right. Perhaps this was Soderbergh's plan, to make their relationship a microcosm of the larger dysfunction we see around them. Either way, the two seem so uncomfortable around each other that it will leave audiences wondering if Horn was out of her league from the start. Writer Reid Carolin makes his feature film debut with a script that had the potential to become an Oscar contender, but sadly falls flat late in the third act. Actors can only play the parts written for them, and Carolin's script is filled with enough holes to lead an entire army of male strippers into battle. There's a drug subplot that needed more time to develop, as well as some surprises near the end that feel more rushed than effective. Moreover, there's very little stripping done in Magic Mike, which might disappoint some females hoping to see a flesh show as opposed to a serious and unsatisfying story about relationships.



Magic Mike had the potential to become another Boogie Nights. But unlike that classic, Mike suffers from too many miscues, missteps, and the casting of Horn to save it. Ladies will be disappointed to learn that the marketed version of Mike does not match what you see, and that there's actually more female than male nudity displayed. For someone so skilled at character development, Soderbergh's cautionary tale dives each time the dancing ends and the story begins. And just like the stripper's life off-stage, Magic Mike rings hollow at the end of a long day.



Magic Mike is rated R for brief male and female nudity, sexual situations, drug use, and language.

Edgar Wright Gets Ready For Ant-Man

As speculation continues to swirl around the mystery of what Marvel movie will be released in May 2014 -- here's hoping that next month's Comic-Con will provide some answers -- Edgar Wright just quietly wrapped production on Ant-Man.

But before you start hitting the tweet button, know this: it’s not the long-awaited Ant-Man movie but rather an Ant-Man test reel.

Ant-Man is based on Marvel hero Hank Pym, a scientist who discovered a way to alter his size. He used a helmet to control armies of ants and also was a founding member of the Avengers. (Two other characters took up the mantle after Pym moved on -- one a thief named Scott Lang and the other a sketchy SHIELD agent.)

Ant-Man, with Wright involved, was on the initial Marvel Studios slate that the company announced in the mid-2000s as it put Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk into development. But Ant-Man was then sidelined as the focus turned to the heroes that eventually ended up this summer’s Avengers.

Wright has focused on other projects in the meantime, but he also has spent time nailing the Ant-Man script, which he co-wrote with Joe Cornish.

Then, in mid-June, he spent just under a week shooting footage for a reel that will be used to test out the potential look and tone of his movie, as well as to decide how convincing Ant-man's powers look onscreen.

But even if it all passes muster, Ant-Man won’t be Wright’s next movie. That honor goes to The World’s End, a comedy that reteams him with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost and is slated to shoot this fall.
Test reels are not uncommon for certain projects, especially those that fall into the stylized or risky categories. Zack Snyder made one for 300, Jonathan Liebesman made one for Battle: Los Angeles, and Guillermo del Toro made one for At the Mountains of Madness. They are not widely circulated but gems to those who have seen them.

GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2. Scarier Then The First

GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2 GOES BACK TO THE INSANE ASYLUM THIS OCTOBER

In 2011, GRAVE ENCOUNTERS was a found-footage horror phenomenon from the Vicious Brothers, with a trailer garnering over 20 million views on YouTube. Many people believed it was just a movie. They were wrong, and film student Alex Wright is out to prove it in GRAVE ENCOUNTERS 2.



While researching the events depicted in the original film and the subsequent disappearance of its lead ”actor” Sean Rogerson, Alex Wright received a bizarre video from a mysterious blogger named “DeathAwaits666." Appearing to show Rogerson still alive but trapped inside the Collingwood Psychiatric Hospital from GRAVE ENCOUNTERS, Alex and his friends agree to meet the blogger at the infamous hospital in hopes of learning what really happened. To their horror, they quickly find themselves face-to-face with unspeakable evil. Realizing that they must be smarter and faster than Rogerson and his crew to avoid suffering the same fate, they use their knowledge of the original film to do whatever it takes to survive.

The title is THE MAN WITH THE IRON FIST co-starring Russell Crowe, Jamie Chung, Lucy Liu, and Pam Grier, the project is also produced by another martial art flick fan, Quentin Tarantino. RZA has worked with Crowe before on American Gangster

THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS stars and is directed by RZA as the title character, “a blacksmith who forges weapons for the inhabitants of a village in feudal China. They are forced to defend themselves, and before you know it, everybody is kung fu fighting.” Crowe’s role is not yet revealed but RZA said Crowe will have a fair share of on screen fighting and that his character will be the “baddest man alive”

Casey Affleck To Direct Josh Hamilton's Story

Josh Hamilton’s rise from the depths of an addiction to crack to become the American League’s most feared slugger is dramatic enough to have been scripted. Sure enough, Hamilton has entrusted his rights to producer Basil Iwanyk and Thunder Road Pictures to be shopped for a feature that will be written and directed by Casey Affleck. Iwanyk has partnered with Kevin Walsh and The Walsh Company on the film, which he and Affleck will pitch to the town shortly.

The best way to describe Hamilton’s journey is to liken him to Roy Hobbs of The Natural, because Hamilton fits that description. The difference: Hamilton’s fall from grace was self-inflicted. A bonafide prodigy who was throwing a 96 mph fast ball by age 15, Hamilton was the first player chosen in the 1999 Major League Baseball draft, signing with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays for a record $4 million. His parents stuck close to their son, until the three were broadsided by another car. His mother was badly hurt and his parents went home to North Carolina. That left Hamilton, who hurt his back in the accident, on his own for the first time in his life. He didn’t handle it well. Beer led to the first line of cocaine, and by the time he came off the disabled list and tore his quadriceps muscle to end his season, he was hopelessly hooked. The following season, he got to the point he hid coke in his uniform during minor league games and when the team found out and sent him to the Betty Ford clinic to straighten out, he went home. There, he met his future wife Katie, but his problems got worse and he failed drug tests and got suspended multiple times, until he was finally kicked out of baseball altogether.

He married Katie, but blew his bonus money on crack and even pawned his wife’s wedding ring. She threw him out and wouldn’t let him get near their newborn daughter. His parents had had enough by this time, too. With no place to go, he ended up with his grandmother, who caught him smoking crack and forced him to try to straighten himself out. Sent to Florida for another rehab, he walked into a local training facility and got a job cleaning toilets and caring for the field. He asked if he could throw a few pitches one day, and shocked bystanders by dialing up a 95 mph fastball.

It made him face his fall, from top pick and married father to a homeless cleaner of toilets, and the fact that he’d squandered his natural gifts. He bought into recovery, quit drugs, reconciled with a wife who hadn’t quit on him, and embraced religion. Eventually, he petitioned baseball’s commissioner for one more chance, and was granted a tryout. Hamilton was selected in the 2006 Rule 5 Draft by the Chicago Cubs, who immediately traded him to the Cincinnati Reds. After the 2007 season, he was traded to the Rangers. Hamilton has become a power hitting machine, crushing 35 home runs in the 2008 Home Run Derby, an unprecedented display of power with a swing that looked effortless. This season, Hamilton is putting up Triple Crown-caliber numbers this season. He has slipped occasionally with alcohol, but has taken a long road back to redemption by reclaiming his outsized talent and regained the trust of his family. If he continues to put up monster numbers, he’ll realize potential that eluded similarly talented jocks like Dwight Gooden and Daryl Strawberry, who weren’t able to overcome their demons until too late.

Thunder Road’s Kent Kubena will executive produce. Hamilton and his wife Katie will co-produce along with Hamilton’s business manager Steve Reed.

“I truly think this guy’ story is one of the most inspiring stories I’ve ever read,” Iwanyk said. “It’s also tailor-made for a movie: it has the mythic quality of The Natural, the faith-based angle of The Blind Side, and faith is a major part of our story, and the romance of Walk the Line. Casey has totally captured those elements in his take for the movie. It is an extraordinary odyssey that took him from the depths of drug addiction, estrangement from his family, and suspension from baseball to a spectacular rebirth of his life, faith, marriage and major league career.”

Iwanyk’s based at Warner Bros (where he’s shooting the Jeff Bridges-starrer The Seventh Son) and that studio will get first shot before he and Affleck take it out to the town. Affleck, who directed the parody documentary I’m Still Here with his brother in law Joaquin Phoenix, won’t star in this film. The WME-repped Affleck just wrapped Out of the Furnace opposite Christian Bale and starts Ain’t Them Bodies Saints with Rooney Mara in July.

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For SAVAGES In Sacramento

IN THEATERS JULY 6

Win tickets to see SAVAGES! We have passes to the special advance screening on Monday, July 2, 2012 at 7:00PM at a Sacramento Area Theater.


SAVAGES is a 2012 American crime–thriller film directed and co-written by Oliver Stone. It is based on the novel of the same name by Don Winslow, who co-wrote the script with Stone and Shane Salerno. The film is set for release July 6, 2012, and features an ensemble cast including Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Blake Lively, Salma Hayek, Benicio del Toro and John Travolta.


Three-time Oscar®-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone returns to the screen with the ferocious thriller Savages, featuring the all-star ensemble cast of Taylor Kitsch, Blake Lively, Aaron Johnson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Benicio Del Toro, Salma Hayek, Emile Hirsch and Demian Bichir. The film is based on Don Winslow’s best-selling crime novel that was named one of The New York Times’ Top 10 Books of 2010.


Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Johnson), a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon (Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry—raising some of the best marijuana ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Lively). Life is idyllic in their Southern California town…until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them.


When the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon—with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (Travolta)—wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high stakes, savage battle of wills.

First Look At Tom Cruise As Jack Reacher

Itinerant megabadass Jack Reacher, a modern-day ronin with a head like the inside of a Swiss watchmaker's studio and a thirst for justice, is coming - scratch that, storming - towards our screens. And we have the first shot of Tom Cruise as Lee Child's iconic hero, from the forthcoming movie of the same name (Jack Reacher, not Lee Child's Iconic Hero).

What's more - if you pick up the new issue of Empire, in which the shot made its debut, you can read the thoughts of Cruise and McQuarrie on the challenges of bringing Child's bone-crunching badass to the big screen. And yes, McQuarrie talks about the disparity in size from the Reacher of the books. "That's to confuse character with characteristics," laughs McQuarrie. "I don't think there was a Wolverine that satisfied the fans, and there wasn't a Jason Bourne that matched everyone's interpretations. Right from the outset, I thought, 'let's get the character down on paper' and then see who's the best person to bring the movie forward."

Sean Aston Has Cabin Fever

Back in February, word spread that comic book artist-turned director Kaare Andrews would be in charge of the megaphone for Patient Zero, the first of two planned Cabin Fever follow-ups now gearing up to shoot. And he’s rounded up the first batch of potential victims, with Sean Aston, Brando Eaton and Ben Hollingsworth aboard.

Patient Zero will, as the name might suggest, unspool the origins of the flesh-gobbling virus that Eli Roth first unleashed in 2003’s first film. The story will see a Caribbean cruise ship unexpectedly run ashore on a medical research island and the passengers finding that their floating party time has suddenly turned into painful, deadly, abject terror.

Andrews will be cranking the cameras in the Dominican Republic this August. Astin, of course, needs little introduction, primarily thanks to his role as Sam Gamgee in a certain trilogy about lords and rings. Eaton is a veteran of US telly drama The Secret Life Of The American Teenager and a variety of other sequels, and was also seen in Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel (which, coincidentally also featured Astin in a voice cameo as a TV show narrator). Hollingsworth has also appeared in various TV series and was David Duchovny’s fake son in The Joneses.

INDIANA JONES: THE COMPLETE ADVENTURES Blu-Ray Arrives September 18th

INDIANA JONES: THE COMPLETE ADVENTURES on Blu-Ray, September 18, 2012.

In June of 1981 director Steven Spielberg and executive producer George Lucas introduced the world to Indiana Jones when the unforgettable Raiders of the Lost Ark debuted in theaters. Exploding to instant acclaim, the film has now been carefully restored, alongside remastered versions of the archaeologist’s other thrilling adventures—Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Prepare for excitement, adventure and snakes—why did it have to be snakes?—all with pristine picture and sound when INDIANA JONES: The Complete Adventures debuts on Blu-ray September 18, 2012 from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Paramount Home Media Distribution.

Supervised by director Steven Spielberg and renowned sound designer Ben Burtt, Raiders of the Lost Ark has been meticulously restored with careful attention to preserving the original look, sound and feel of the iconic film. The original negative was first scanned at 4K and then examined frame-by-frame so that any damage could be repaired.

The sound design was similarly preserved using Burtt’s original master mix, which had been archived and unused since 1981. New stereo surrounds were created using the original music tracks and original effects recorded in stereo but used previously only in mono. In addition, the sub bass was redone entirely up to modern specifications and care was taken to improve dialogue and correct small technical flaws to create the most complete and highest quality version of the sound possible while retaining the director’s vision. The result is an impeccable digital restoration that celebrates the film and its place in cinematic history.

The installments in the franchise have won a combined seven Academy Awards®. Relive every heart-pounding thrill like never before as all four films arrive together, for the first time presented in 1080p high definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio accompanied by a collection of documentaries, interviews, featurettes and new bonus f

Win Tickets To An Advance Screening For SAVAGES In San Francisco

IN THEATERS JULY 6

Win tickets to see SAVAGES! We have passes to the special advance screening on Monday, July 2, 2012 at 7:00PM at a Sand Francisco Area Theater.


SAVAGES is a 2012 American crime–thriller film directed and co-written by Oliver Stone. It is based on the novel of the same name by Don Winslow, who co-wrote the script with Stone and Shane Salerno. The film is set for release July 6, 2012, and features an ensemble cast including Taylor Kitsch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Blake Lively, Salma Hayek, Benicio del Toro and John Travolta.
