  Bella Bella Bella ooh tell me more tell me more
  The tense and twisty home invasion thriller MASQUERADE, written and directed by Shane Dax Taylor (Isolation, Bloodworth, Close Range) premieres on digital, on demand and in select US cinemas nationwide on July 30, 2021 from Shout! Studios. In the dark tale of truth and consequences Bella Thorne (Midnight Sun, Assassination Nation, Netflix's The Babysitter franchise) leads a stellar cast of Alyvia Alyn Lind (Netflix's Daybreak, Overboard), Skyler Samuels (The Gifted, American Horror Story) with Mircea Monroe (Book Club, Fifty Shades of Black) and Austin Nichols (The Walking Dead, Bates Motel).

Eleven-year-old Casey (Lind) is home alone - until a group of intruders, led by Rose (Thorne), break in. They plan to steal her family's priceless collection of artwork, but their reckless ambition is outmatched only by Rose's opportunism. Casey must struggle to survive as the stakes grow ever higher and the invaders prove themselves willing to stop at nothing to get what they want.

A Production of Racer Entertainment, and A Shane Dax Taylor Film, MASQUERADE is produced by Steven Schneider (Glass, Insidious: The Lost Key), Shane Dax Taylor, and Kenneth Burke (Black Cadillac, Bloodworth). See a clip at the link above.

  The Alpinist [read more]
  A mountain to climb
  The thrilling, emotionally-charged climbing documentary, THE ALPINIST, will be released in UK and Irish cinemas on 24th September 2021.

An intimate portrait of Marc-André Leclerc, a visionary solo climber driven by a simple love of the mountains, THE ALPINIST is produced by Red Bull Media House in association with Sender Films (THE DAWN WALL) and was an official selection of 2020 Telluride and SXSW Film Festivals.

Marc-André Leclerc climbs alone, far from the limelight. On remote alpine faces, the free-spirited 23-year-old Canadian makes some of the boldest solo ascents in history. Yet, he draws scant attention. With no cameras, no rope, and no margin for error, Leclerc's approach is the essence of solo adventure. Nomadic and publicity shy, he doesn’t own a phone or car, and is reluctant to let a film crew in on his pure vision of climbing. Veteran filmmaker, Peter Mortimer (THE DAWN WALL) sets out to make a film about Leclerc but struggles to keep up with his elusive subject. Then, Leclerc embarks on a historic adventure in Patagonia that will redefine what is possible in solo climbing. Watch the trailer at the link above.

  The Criterion Collection in October
  The good life (with these discs)
  The Criterion Collection and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are delighted to confirm the titles to be released on Blu-ray in October 2021.

The biggest hit from FEDERICO FELLINI, the most popular Italian filmmaker of all time, LA DOLCE VITA is released on 18 October.

Followed on 25 October by the groundbreaking feature debut by writer-director GINA PRINCE-BYTHEWOOD, LOVE & BASKETBALL, a film which captures the intoxicating passions, heartbreaking setbacks, and sky-high ambitions that mark a young woman's journey to the top of her game and to lasting love.

Also on 25 October sees THE DAMNED, the most savagely subversive film by the iconoclastic auteur LUCHINO VISCONTI. Heightened performances and Visconti's luridly expressionistic use of Technicolor conjure a garish world of decaying opulence in which one family’s downfall comes to stand for the moral rot of a nation.

  The Last Job on DVD and digital [read more]
  Aren't the action heroes looking older these days?
  Screen icon Richard Dreyfuss takes on The Last Job in a brand new, all-action thriller, that stars Modern Family's Mira Sorvino as his daughter. This rip-roaring gangster movie hits the UK on DVD and digital this August from 101 Films.

Mob boss Ben Myers (Dreyfuss - Jaws, Stand By Me) has left his life of crime and violence behind him. Following a cancer diagnosis, he's hung up his hand-gun and vowed to spend time with his family before it’s too late. But sometimes it's not that easy to leave...

When he returns home to discover his life savings have been stolen, he's not going to take it lying down. Avoiding the legal route and choosing not to involve his police detective daughter (Mira Sorvino - Mighty Aphrodite), Ben's mobster mentality kicks in and he takes matters into his own hands... the thieves are going to pay, whatever the cost.

Hell-bent on revenge, his hunt for the perpetrators becomes increasingly more brutal, Ben doesn't care who gets caught in the crossfire. As the body count rises, Ben is forced to confront his past and question what he's become.

Will he find redemption and make peace with The Last Job? Click the link to see the trailer.
