Mystery Road - Preview

Mystery Road

Preview by Jack Foley

WHEN Aboriginal detective Jay Swan returns to his home town to solve the brutal murder of a teenage girl, he is immediately thrown into a web of lies and deceit.

Alienated by the white-dominated police force to which he is attached and ostracised by the local Indigenous community, Jay must stand alone and attempt to unravel the truth before tensions boil over.

From award-winning director Ivan Sen (Beneath Clouds, Toomelah), Mystery Road is a gripping and intelligent modern-day take on the western genre.

Beautifully shot on location in the Australian Outback, the film features a stellar ensemble cast including Aaron Pedersen (The Circuit), Hugo Weaving (Lord of the Rings), Jack Thompson (The Great Gatsby) and Ryan Kwanten (True Blood).

Mystery Road is released on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD on Monday, October 27, 2014.

Preview by Jack Foley

ALLIES is the action packed true story of a brave few English soldiers fighting their way deep behind enemy lines to bring World War II to a halt. This unmissable story is yours to own on DVD and digital download from November 3, 2014 courtesy of Entertainment One.

Directed by Dominic Burns (Airborne, U.F.O.), this story is brought to life by a talented cast including Julian Ovenden (Downton Abbey, The Assets) as Captain Gabriel Jackson; Chris Reilly (Game of Thrones, Silent Witness) is Sergeant Harry McBain; Erich Redman (Saving Private Ryan, Rush) as Lieutenant Colonel Kaltz; Matt Jay-Willis (Eastenders) plays Private Billy Munns; Werner Daehn (Enemy at the Gates, Field of Lost Shoes) plays Captain Dekker; Edmund Kingsley (Hugo, Capsule) is Private Yorkie Jones; Steven Hartley (The Bill, Doctors) plays Brigadier General Groves; and Frank LeBoeuf (The Theory of Everything, The Eighth Sin) plays Marcel Deville.

August 1944, a team of British soldiers are led by U.S Captain Jackson (Ovenden) and are dropped behind enemy lines in occupied France on a mission to find a map from the enemy, something so powerful that it could shorten the war.

As nothing goes according to plan, commando Sergeant Harry McBain (Reilly) and U.S Captain Gabriel Jackson know they must put aside personal animosity if the mission to end the war is to succeed. When contact with the wrong local blows their cover, the commandos are thrown into a desperate battle for their lives.

Win The Exorcist on Blu-ray!

The Exorcist: 40th Anniversary Edition

Preview by Jack Foley

WHEN The Exorcist was first released in 1974, viewers were frightened out of their wits – and literally out of their seats.

Now Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Academy Award® winning director William Friedkin’s suspense masterpiece that haunted and intrigued the world, with a new Blu-ray release featuring the Extended Director’s Cut and Theatrical Version with new special features and premiums.

Out now on Blu-ray, just ahead of Halloween, this 40th Anniversary Edition will include two new featurettes: Beyond Comprehension: William Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist and Talk of the Devil, as well as an excerpt from Friedkin’s book, The Friedkin Connection: A Memoir.

A true cinema landmark, the theological thriller is one of the top 10 box-office performers of all time. The Exorcist took 10 Academy Award® nominations , including Best Picture, and won two Oscars® , for Best Adapted Screenplay, as well as winning for Best Sound. Subsequently, the film went on to become a multi-million pound franchise.

Directed by Friedkin (Oscar®-winner for The French Connection – Directing 1971) and written by William Peter Blatty, the film is based on his best-selling novel, which sold nearly 13 million copies in the US and was the No.1 book on the New York Times Best Seller List for 57 weeks, 17 of them at No.1.

Regarding the Extended Director’s Cut, Friedkin says: “After my initial cut, I took out 12 more minutes before we released it in theatres. Years later, Bill Blatty asked if I’d review some of that rejected footage (which he always felt should have remained) with an eye towards putting it back in a new version. In so doing I believe we strengthened the spiritual aspect of the film.”

Celebrated for his directorial role in this seminal film, Friedkin is still very much in the limelight. His new book, The Friedkin Connection: A Memoir, recently published by HarperCollins, extensively discusses the background and casting of The Exorcist.

The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films will honor Friedkin this month with their Lifetime Achievement Award for his continually influential work in genre entertainment at this year’s Saturn Awards.

In August, Friedkin received the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 70th Venice International Film Festival, where he also presented the restored version of Warner Bros.’ Sorcerer.

Synopsis

The Exorcist tells the now-famous story of a girl’s demonic possession, and a gripping fight between good and evil. Linda Blair, in a breakout role, plays Regan, a young girl who starts to exhibit strange, arcane behavior.

Her mother (Ellen Burstyn, Oscar-winner for Best Actress Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore) calls upon a priest, Father Karras (Jason Miller) to investigate. But Karras, who has a spiritual crisis of his own, is suddenly confronted with the unimaginable evil of Regan’s possession.

Father Lankester Merrin (Max Von Sydow), an archeologist-priest, is called to help, and a horrific battle for her soul begins.
