Decades before special “Extended Editions” of summer blockbusters became common, Superman would again prove to be “The Man of Tomorrow.” After soaring to critical and commercial success while leading a generation of film-goers to believe a man could fly, Superman: The Movie got a special make-over for his network television premiere – nearly forty-minutes was added back in, creating a two-night television event. Audiences had already fallen in love with Christopher Reeve’s Last Son of Krypton, and now there was even more to love. More Krypton, as a Science Council executioner hunts for the defiant Jor-El (Marlon Brando), more Smallville, as a young Lois Lane glimpses a boy faster than a locomotive (with parents played by the original live-action Lois Lane and Superman, Noel Neill and Kirk Alyn), and a lot more Lex (Gene Hackman). Now remastered and restored, this special edition, unseen for decades is paired here with Richard Donner’s definitive vision of his film, the Special Edition Director’s Cut (2000), to create a super-sized celebration of Metropolis’ favorite son that preserves the director’s intent while feeding super-fan demands. Special Features (on Superman: The Special Edition Disc): Commentary by Director Richard Donner and Creative Consultant Tom Mankiewicz; 3 Documentaries Taking Flight: The Development of Superman, Making Superman: Filming the Legend and The Magic Behind the Cape; Screen Tests; Restored Scenes; Additional Scenes; Additional Music Cues; Music-Only Track. 16×9 Letterbox
Simply one of the greatest Crime-Horror-Science Fiction-Cop-Buddy flicks produced in the era of neon and big hair, The Hidden remained, well, hidden, upon its initial release only to become a late-night cable king thanks to its verve, splash, clever non-cg FX work along with some great performances both big and small. Something is turning the law-abiding citizens into psychopathic killer criminals and L.A. police detective Tom Beck (Michael Nouri, Flashdance) is flummoxed. Enter odd FBI agent Lloyd Gallagher (Kyle MacLachlan, Twin Peaks) with the simple explanation. Alien demonic possession. While a series of talented character vets (Clu Gulager, Chris Mulkey) and up-and-comers (Richard Brooks, Claudia Christian) leave their marks upon the scenery, the one-two punch of Michael Nouri (playing 80s rogue cop) and Kyle MacLachlan (playing “not from around here” as only he can) make this b-movie a blockbuster. Special Features: Commentary by Director Jack Sholder and Tim Hunter; Special Effects Production Footage Narrated by Jack Sholder; Original Theatrical Trailer (HD). Also available on a Remastered DVD! 16×9 Widescreen
This severed tongue-in-cranium police procedural drama horror comedy from co-creators Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright based upon the Vertigo comic from Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, ups the ante for its fast-paced flesh-eating third smash season. And nothing says ante upped than a full-fledged zombie army living in Seattle – in secret! Searching for the facts behind the now-notorious Max Rager massacre, Blaine (David Anders) discovers that living as a human with no memory of his evil past is totally awesome (of course). When Team Z investigates the paramilitary paranorms in their midst, Major (Robert Buckley) finds a welcome in the Zomb-Arm ranks, while Liv (Rose McIver) and Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) struggle to solve a case that could prevent the all-out zombie-versus-human apocalypse. After fine meals of newly deceased brains, Liv assumes the traits of a dominatrix, an extreme stuntman, a conspiracy theorist, a dungeon master and more in these 13 deliciously deranged adventures that lead up to a status quo shattering fourth season. Special Features: iZombie 2016 Comic-Con Panel; Deleted Scenes. 16×9 Widescreen
