Peter Whitehead's Tale of Two Cities: London and New York in the 1960s - Deluxe Blu-ray Boxset [read more]
Spirit of the times
Arguably Britain's most provocative and idiosyncratic filmmaker, Peter Whitehead's pioneering and intensely creative body of work has shocked, entertained and infuriated audiences in equal measure over the last fifty years. His films are both of their time and intensely relevant to the present day, with their focus on celebrity, music, counterculturalism and political unrest still chiming strongly with a modern audience.
A fiercely personal documentarian, he created two films which, more than any others captured the zeitgeist of both Britain and America as they convulsed in the throes of two very different cultural revolutions during the late 1960s. This six-disc set contains brand-new High Definition remasters of both Tonite Let's Make Love in London and The Fall.
As part of an ongoing collaboration between Network Distributing, DMU and CATHI, the Peter Whitehead Archive has uncovered a host rare and unseen footage from the maverick filmmaker's collection. Included in a vast selection of special features will be extended interviews with Michael Caine, Julie Christie, Bobby Kennedy and Gloria Steinem as well as unseen footage of Pink Floyd in the recording studio and the demonstration and occupation of Columbia University in 1968. Watch the trailer for Tonite at the link above to get a glimpse of how pristine the restoration is.

Cleanin' Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters [read more]
Get slimed on nostalgia
CLEANIN' UP THE TOWN: Remembering Ghostbusters, directed and produced by the UK brother and sister team of Anthony and Claire Bueno, receives its European Premiere at BFI's IMAX Cinema on 3rd December ahead of its theatrical release with both filmmakers in attendance. Celebrating 35 years since Ivan Reitman's cult favourite Ghostbusters manifested on the big screen, the film pays a fitting tribute to the whole creative team behind the global phenomenon that continues to enchant audiences to this day. The documentary received its World Premiere appropriately in Calgary where Jason Reitman's Ghostbusters has just completed principle photography.
CLEANIN' UP THE TOWN: Remembering Ghostbusters, is the definitive retrospective documentary, resulting from twelve years of research and production. It charts the making of the original 1984 Ghostbusters, featuring interviews with director Ivan Reitman, and lead cast Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. In addition, the documentary hallmarks the extraordinary achievements made by the filmmakers working in visual effects era before the game-changing Jurassic Park. It reveals a story of ingenuity, innovation and emphasises just how ambitious an undertaking the making of Ghostbusters really was.
MIDWAY is the epic, real-life saga about an undermanned American fleet and the brave Navy leaders and pilots who triumphed, against the odds, over a powerful adversary. With democracy and freedom at stake, these U.S. brothers-in-arms conquered the Imperial Japanese Navy at the Battle of Midway, a most stunning clash by air and sea which marked a heroic feat of naval warfare and pivoted the Allies toward victory in the Pacific Theater during WWII.
The film's all-star cast includes Ed Skrein (Deadpool, Alita: Battle Angel), Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring Universe, Aquaman), Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast, Fast & Furious 6), Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight, Thank You For Smoking), Nick Jonas (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Chaos Walking), Etsushi Toyokawa (Love Letter, The 8-Tomb Village), Tadanobu Asano (Thor, Battleship), Luke Kleintank (The Man in the High Castle, The Goldfinch), Jun Kunimura (Kill Bill: Vol. 1, The Wailing), Darren Criss (Glee, American Crime Story), Keean Johnson (Alita: Battle Angel, Nashville), Alexander Ludwig (Vikings, The Hunger Games), with Mandy Moore (This Is Us, Tangled), Dennis Quaid (The Day After Tomorrow, Far From Heaven) and Woody Harrelson (True Detective, The Hunger Games).

Universal Pictures is delighted to debut the Official Trailer for The Invisible Man - watch it at the link above.
What you can't see can hurt you. Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss (Us, Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale) stars in a terrifying modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal's classic monster character.
Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer, NBC's The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO's Euphoria).
But when Cecilia's abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
Jason Blum, our current-day master of the horror genre, produces The Invisible Man for his Blumhouse Productions. The Invisible Man is written, directed and executive produced by Leigh Whannell, one of the original conceivers of the Saw franchise who most recently directed Upgrade and Insidious: Chapter 3.

That deaf, dumb and blind girl sure plays a mean pinball
Eureka Entertainment to release THE MIRACLE WORKER; Arthur Penn’s heartfelt biographical story about the life of Helen Keller, starring Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke. Available for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK as part of the Eureka Classics range from 27 January 2020.
Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke are remarkable in The Miracle Worker, the Academy Award-winning story of Helen Keller. Ennobling and uplifting, this inspirational story of courage and hope is one of the finest works of art in the history of motion pictures.
Locked in a frightening, lonely world of silence and darkness since infancy, 7-year old Helen Keller (Duke) has never seen the sky, heard her mother's voice or expressed her innermost feelings. Then Anne Sullivan (Bancroft), a 20-year old teacher from Boston arrives. Having just recently regained her own sight, the no-nonsense Anne reaches out to Helen through the power of touch - the only tool they have in common - and leads her bold pupil on a miraculous journey from fear and isolation to happiness and light.
