From Academy Award winners James Cameron & Jon Landau, and visionary filmmaker Robert Rodriguez comes ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, an epic adventure of hope and empowerment. When Alita (Rosa Salazar) awakens with no memory of who she is in a future world she does not recognize, she is taken in by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate doctor who realizes that somewhere in this discarded cyborg shell is the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past. When deadly and corrupt forces come after Alita, she discovers a clue to her past – she has unique fighting abilities that those in power will stop at nothing to control. If she can stay out of their grasp, she could be the key to saving her friends, her family and the world she’s grown to love.

The action-packed film, also starring Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, and Keenan Johnson has scored $405 million at the global box-office.

Cinderella: Anniversary Edition, the newest release in the Walt Disney Signature Collection, On Digital and Movies Anywhere June 18 and on Blu-ray™ June 25

 

Fall in love with the magical story, enchanting characters and exquisite artistry
of “Cinderella,” complete with two all-new extras and classic bonus material

 

In honor of its upcoming 70th anniversary, the timeless animated classic “Cinderella” waltzes into the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection and the hearts of a whole new generation. The enchanting tale, which showed us that dreams really do come true — and inspired countless fans to reenact the Royal Ball and Cinderella’s infamous midnight dash — arrives home Digitally in HD and Movies Anywhere on June 18, and on Blu-ray™ and DVD on June 25.

The Anniversary Edition of “Cinderella” offers two all-new extras: “Cinderella” trivia and fun facts, hosted by Ruth Righi and Ava Kolker from Disney Channel’s “Sydney to the Max,” and “In Walt’s Words: Enhanced Edition,” a special edition of “Cinderella” featuring fascinating production details, original storyboards, archival photos, thumbnail sketches and transcripts throughout the feature film. Hours of classic bonus material celebrates the masterful animation, memorable music and long-lasting impact of “Cinderella,” showcasing Walt Disney’s core group of animators, the art of Disney Legend Mary Blair, the original demo recording of the film’s title song and Cinderella’s iconic glass slipper.

Recently added to the prestigious National Film Registry, the animated classic centers on kind and hardworking Cinderella, who is ordered around by her cruel stepmother, her awful stepsisters — even the big clock in the church tower tells her when to start another day of drudgery. But they can’t stop her from dreaming, and Cinderella has faith that someday her wishes will come true. When an invitation to the royal ball arrives, Cinderella is sure her time has come — until her stepsisters, with the encouragement of Lady Tremaine, tear her gown to shreds. Just when Cinderella believes all is lost, her Fairy Godmother appears, and with a wave of her wand and “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,” transforms an ordinary pumpkin into a magnificent coach and Cinderella’s rags into a gorgeous gown, then sends her off to the Royal Ball. But Cinderella’s enchanted evening must end when the spell is broken at midnight. It will take the help of her daring animal mice friends and a perfect fit into a glass slipper to create the ultimate fairy tale ending.

“Cinderella” is the ninth title to join the Walt Disney Signature Collection, which includes groundbreaking films created or inspired by the imagination and legacy of Walt Disney, featuring timeless stories and characters that have touched generations. The film takes its place alongside “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pinocchio,” “Bambi,” “The Lion King,” “Lady and the Tramp,” “Peter Pan” and “The Little Mermaid.”

This Week’s Best Bets

“Let the Sunshine In” (2017): Two luminaries of French cinema, Claire Denis and Juliette Binoche, unite for the first time in this piercing look at the elusive nature of true love, and the extent to which we are willing to betray ourselves in its pursuit. In a richly layered performance, Binoche plays Isabelle, a successful painter in Paris whose apparent independence belies what she desires most: real romantic fulfillment. Isabelle reveals deep wells of photo for Let the Sunshine In yearning, vulnerability, and resilience as she tumbles into relationships with all the wrong men. Shot in burnished tones by Denis’s longtime collaborator Agnès Godard and featuring a mischievous appearance by Gérard Depardieu, “Let the Sunshine In” finds bleak humor in a cutting truth: we are all, no matter our age, fools for love. 4K digital master, approved by cinematographer Agnès Godard, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray.On DVD, Blu-ray, from The Criterion Collection … “The Image Book” (2018 — France): The legendary Jean-Luc Godard adds to his influential, iconoclastic legacy with this provocative collage film essay, a vast ontological inquiry into the history of the moving image and a commentary on the contemporary world. Winner of the first Special Palme d’Or to be awarded in the history of the Cannes Film Festival. Displaying an encyclopedic grasp of cinema and its history, Godard pieces together fragments from some of the greatest films of the past, then digitally alters, bleaches, and washes them, all in the service of reflecting on what he sees in front of him and what he makes of the dissonance that surrounds him. He uses his own voice to guide us through the fascinating labyrinth of his mind. In some cases, it is to reflect on the metaphysical properties of the world — time, and space, and where meaning is found — but more importantly it is the image, the thing that has obsessed Godard for his entire career, that anchors this film. His ontological enquiry into the image continues to be one of the most moving in history. On DVD, Blu-ray, from Kino Lorber … photo for She-Devils On Wheels “She-Devils On Wheels” (1968): Wild! Vicious! With motorcycles as their lovers! Experience sights and sounds beyond your very imagining as “Godfather of Gore” Herschell Gordon Lewis (“Blood Feast,” “Two Thousand Maniacs!”) tackles the biker chick sub-sub-genre. Have you ever heard the saying “it’s a man’s world”? Well don’t dare repeat that to The Man-Eaters — a raucous, rowdy and randy gang of female bikers who ride their men just as viciously as they do their motorcycles. When they’re not racing each other to get first pick of the “stud line-up”, these female hellcats are busy terrorizing the town and clashing with the rival male gangs. Billed as “by far the most exciting picture of its type ever filmed”, “She-Devils on Wheels” sees splatter pioneer H.G. Lewis going full throttle with the most shocking biker flick of its kind — now accompanied by his other vicious gang opus “Just for the Hell of It” (1968) for a thrilling, pulse-racing double-bill. On Blu-ray from Arrow Video/MVD Entertainment.

Opening Theatrically on June 14 in Top Markets Including Los Angeles and Dallas, this Gritty Tale of the American West Will Also Be Available

Day-and-Date On Demand & Digital

Outlaws beware. Through hard work and sacrifice, the pieces of Jing’s life begin falling into place, but in one moment all of that is ripped away. Enraged with grief, he sets out on a path of revenge that will tear apart the corrupt town he calls home in THE OUTSIDER. This double barrel thrill-ride stars country music legend Trace Adkins (I Can Only Imagine, Hickok), Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints, Powder), Jon Foo (“Rush Hour”) and Danny Trejo (Machete, Predators). On June 14, THE OUTSIDER opens theatrically in 11 markets including Los Angeles, Kansas City, Dallas, Denver, Phoenix, Houston, Tampa, Minneapolis, Seattle, Chicago and Toronto; and, day-and-date, it will also be available On Demand and Digital.

The far east and the old west collide in, THE OUTSIDER, a tale of bullets, bare knuckles and bloodshed. In search of a better life, a railroad worker (Foo) unwittingly finds himself on the wrong side of a group of corrupt lawmen. As the Marshal (Adkins) attempts to control his increasingly unethical town, tragedy strikes forcing him to decide between justice and family. But through their inaction they awakened a sleeping giant; and after teaming up with a disgraced former officer (Flanery), the railroad worker sets out to wipeout the immoral group by any means necessary.

THE OUTSIDER, directed by Timothy Woodward Jr. (Hickock, Traded) and written by Sean Ryan, is an unfiltered look at the trials and tragedies that shaped the American frontier. Co-stars include Kaiwi Lyman (“American Horror Story”, Hickok) as the Marshal’s son and Mitchell L. Johnson (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom) as a corrupt lawman. Nelli Tsay (Jaded) rounds out the performances with the complex, gritty portrayal of Jing’s wife.

Filmed at the iconic Paramount Ranch, where movies & shows such as Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and “Gunsmoke” were made, production was halted half-way through when the Malibu Woolsey Fires destroyed the historic movie set. “The western genre holds a special place in my heart,” says Woodward, Jr. “Having another opportunity to work at an iconic location like Paramount Ranch was a dream come true. It was a sad day for western fans, and a blow to the film community, when the ranch succumbed to the fires that devastated a big portion of the state last fall. Despite it being one of our key locations for this project, the crew, cast and team really buckled down, got creative and worked through heat, wind and fire to bring this western to life.”

THE OUTSIDER is produced by Woodward, Lauren de Normandie and Johnny Cleveland. Executive Producers include Matthew Helderman, Luke Taylor, Joe Listhaus and Patrick DePeters.

Official Synopsis:

Country Music Legend Trace Adkins stars in this gritty tale of revenge in a small Western boomtown. In search of the American dream, a railroad worker (Jon Foo) finds himself on the wrong side of a lawless frontier. As the Marshall (Adkins) attempts to control his corrupt town, tragedy strikes sending the railroad worker on a path of retaliation. Sean Patrick Flanery & Danny Trejo also star in this gritty tale.
