Walt Disney Studios: "CINDERELLA" 70th Anniversary [BLU-RAY/DVD]

 
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.”

Disney invites fans to fall in love again with this heartfelt story, in which differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight, when it swoops into homes on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ and Movies Anywhere, and physically on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD — with never-before-seen bonus features, deleted scenes, Easter eggs and bloopers.

Features explore how Disney’s timeless animated story was brought to life with an incredibly expressive, lovable, fully computer-generated baby elephant; the longtime collaboration of Burton, production designer Rick Heinrichs and costume designer Colleen Atwood, which resulted in jaw-dropping sets and costumes; and the creation of the visually colossal Dreamland parade sequence. Also included are nine deleted scenes, hidden and not-so-hidden Easter eggs, bloopers and a special performance of “Baby Mine” by Arcade Fire.

Intrada: "HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U" music by Bear McCreary

 
In 2017, Universal Pictures released the Blumhouse film Happy Death Day about college student Tree (Jessica Rothe) who relives the same day over and over, getting murdered each time until she's able to solve the mystery of who keeps killing her and breaks the cycle. The slasher black comedy was produced by Jason Blum and directed by Christopher Landon, and was so successful that it resulted in a sequel, Happy Death Day 2U. In the sequel, Tree finds herself once again reliving the same day, but a sci-fi element is introduced, as it turns out a science experiment is responsible not only for her daily repetition, but also thrusting her into an alternate universe. Now she must identify the killer and decide if she will stay in this alternate universe or return home.

Returning for this sequel is Bear McCreary, one of the most dramatically prolific and talented composers working today. In 2019 alone he has composed the scores for The Professor and the Madman, Rim of the World, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and the upcoming Child's Play. Building on his score for the first film, Happy Death Day 2U expands beyond the slasher focus of the first film and emphasizes the sci-fi aspect, with large, dramatic orchestral scoring, like a cousin to his music for films like The Cloverfield Paradox. With many lengthy cues, the album is a dramatic and entertaining listening experience and is Intrada's first McCreary album.

This Intrada release on CD is courtesy of Back lot Music, who released the soundtrack digitally.

Caldera Records: "Ambition" music by Leonard Rosenman


One of the stars of the film is, undoubtedly, a man behind the scenes: Leonard Rosenman. It was clear to Rosenman and Scott Goldstein that the score should have a progressive, rather than conventional harmonic structure. They agreed that this would help to underscore Merrick’s (the antagonist) horrific, troubling visions and this approach would help capture his state of mind musically. Goldstein suggested Rosenman play him some of his concert music as a blueprint for “Ambition”. Encouraged to be able to draw upon his “progressive” work for the concert stage, Rosenman presented Goldstein with “Foci”, a work for chamber orchestra that the composer had written in 1981 and revised in 1983. Goldstein loved what he heard and commenced to use “Foci” as temp music for “Ambition”. “Foci” is an atonal piece, complex and full of anxiety – exactly what Goldstein needed for his motion picture.

Honestly never heard of this film, but know the actors and definitely know the work of this composer. Starting out strong as we take the path of a little innocence, we begin to feel it's certain stength and musical intentions. Suspense and intrigue are as to follow, nice use of plotting sounds and a theme that hold their own. [http://caldera-records.com/]

MVD Rewind Collection branded Collector's Editions of classic Van Damme films Black Eagle and Lionheart, MVD continues its love for the legendary action star with a fully loaded Blu-ray of Double Impact, a favorite among fans of the kickboxing action hero!

DOUBLE IMPACT: What could be better than Jean-Claude Van Damme (Lionheart, Universal Soldier) in an explosively entertaining action extravaganza? Two of him! There's twice the excitement, twice the mayhem and twice the fun in this turbo-charged adventure that pushes the thrills into overdrive from co-writer and director Sheldon Lettich (Lionheart, Bloodsport, Max) and Co-Producer Michael Douglas (Romancing The Stone, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) along with co-stars Geoffrey Lewis (The Devil's Rejects), Bolo Yeung (Bloodsport), Alonna Shaw (King Of New York) and Cory Everson (Natural Born Killers).

Van Damme leaps into the dual roles of Chad and Alex Wagner, twin brothers who were separated after their parents' brutal murder. Years later, the two couldn't be more different: Chad is a slick Beverly Hills fitness instructor, while Alex is a rough and tumble smuggler on the gritty streets of Hong Kong. But when fate throws them together again, Chad and Alex discover that there's one thing they have in common: they're both fighting machines! Determined to enact revenge on their parents' killers, the martial-arts experts kick, chop and shoot all the way to an electrifying final showdown aboard a gargantuan freighter in Hong Kong harbor.

Wilkinson, the Double Impact: Special Collector's Edition includes amazing bonus material including a feature length retrospective documentary about the making of the film from award winning writer / producer Richard Schenkman (The Man From Earth) that includes brand new interviews with star and co-writer Jean-Claude Van Damme, director and co-writer Sheldon Lettich, producer Ashok Amritraj, co-star Cory Everson-Donia, co-star and fight coordinator Peter Malota and "Chad" and "Alex" photo doubles Jeff Rector and Jerry Rector.

Along with this new material the disc also includes rarely seen 1991 behind the scenes featurettes, trailers, cast and crew interviews and more, cultivating what is the definitive release of this classic action film.

The reviews for MVD's release have been stellar with Under The Radar's Austin Trunick raving "This special edition of Double Impact is another unbelievable effort from boutique label MVD Rewind Collection, whose releases of Van Damme staples Lionheart and Black Eagle really impressed us previously. This release blows those two out of the water, with several hours' worth of new and previously-unavailable bonus features."

"I couldn't be happier about the final product," explains Eric D. Wilkinson, who oversees all of MVD's collector's brands including MVD Marquee Collection, MVD Classics and MVD Rewind Collection and produces each individual release. "Bringing back these classic movies in definitive collector's editions has been a labor of love for me. I especially love working on Jean-Claude Van Damme's films and even more so with director Sheldon Lettich who has been especially supportive. Sheldon and Jean-Claude are a great team and I hope we can get more of their films to release in the future."

Writer / Director Sheldon Lettich agrees, "With Lionheart, MVD created what I consider to be the definitive edition of one of my most popular movies. I'm excited to have worked with them again on a brand new special edition of Double Impact, which I'm sure will not only please long-time fans of the film, but also introduce it to a whole new generation. MVD's release of the film is the best it's ever looked on disc, in my opinion."

MovieScore Media: "THE SPY WHO FELL TO EARTH" music by Robin Schlochtermeier


MovieScore Media’s latest release in the genre of documentaries is The Spy Who Fell to Earth with music by composer Robin Schlochtermeier. Written and directed by Tom Meadmore, the Netflix documentary deals with one of the lesser-known chapters of the Middle-Eastern conflict as political commentator / historia Ahron “Ronnie” Bregman gets more deeply invested in the search for a mysterious Egyptian spy, whose secrets slowly consume him until the whole plot unravels with tragic consequences. The Spy Who Fell to Earth is more engaging than most Hollywood spy thrillers - with the added bonus of being a true story that’s still in the making to some degree.

“The score for The Spy Who Fell to Earth was written first and foremost to help support the story elements of the documentary” explains Robin Schlochtermeier about the music. ”These include the conflict between Egypt and Israel, journalist Ronnie Bregman’s obsession with the enigmatic Egyptian spy Ashraf Marwan, Marwan himself, and the secret services. The director, Thomas Meadmore, also gets his own thoughtful and open-ended theme, as his line of questioning deepens into author Ronnie Bregman’s personal motivations. Musically the score draws on a rich tradition of espionage thrillers for its driving rhythms and unconventional time signatures. There are also some nods to Middle Eastern culture with some Darabuka and the Bendir drum rhythms. The score is quite action-packed for a documentary, with even a tense war scene underscore!”

Robin Schlochtermeier is an award-winning composer for film, television and commercials. He won the award for Best Music for his original score for the psychological thriller Retreat at the British Independent Film Festival. Retreat was also nominated in six other categories including Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress. He has also composed the music for award-winning broadcast documentaries, for the features Queens of Syria (Black Pearl Award, Abu Dhabi Film Festival), Oh No, Not Rudy Again! (EFM Cannes), and for Strings (British Independent Film Award).

The soundtrack has a digital release date of  May 31, 2019.  On the link below, you can view a video, featuring a suite from the score: [https://youtu.be/16uAK3vaowY]
