March comes in like a Grav
AUKN Staff
I noticed there wasn't an exact thread on this section dedicated to any movie or TV news that would be handy in case one of us wanted to mention an upcoming theatrical or home video release so here's one to help fill the void.

I'll provide some examples to start this off:

Arrow Video have recently revealed plans to bring the following to the UK on home video this May 2019:
  • The Annihilators (Charles E. Sellier, Jr., 1985) - 13th May
  • The Grand Duel (Giancarlo Santi, 1972) - 6th May
  • In The Aftermath (Carl Colpaert, 1988) - 6th May
  • Mega Time Squad (Tim Van Dammen, 2018) - 20th May
  • She-Devils on Wheels (Herschell Gordon Lewis, 1968) - 20th May
  • Trapped Alive (Leszek Burzynski, 1988) - 20th May
  • Yakuza Law (Teruo Ishii, 1969) - 13th May
UK distributor MUBI has confirmed that Luca Guadagnino's 2018 reimagining of Suspiria will be available to stream on Amazon Prime sometime this April.

Second Sight revealed a few weeks ago that they will be releasing George A Romero's Dawn of the Dead to the UK on Ultra HD Blu-ray as well as standard Blu-ray and video on demand. The release will include the original, unrated US theatrical release cut, Romero's pre-US release Cannes cut, and also the Dario Argento foreign version. The distributor has also confirmed "scanning, colour grading and restoration of both films will be managed by Final Frame under the supervision of Director of Photography Michael Gornick. The mastering and encoding will be handled by one of the entertainment technology industry’s most experienced specialists, David Mackenzie of Fidelity in Motion". The current estimated release date is late Summer 2019. Romero's Martin was also acquired however it will be released on standard Blu-ray only.

The Ultra HD Blu-ray & Blu-ray combo pack for Avengers: Infinity War is currently being sold for £13.99 on Amazon UK for some bizarre reason, get it while it's cheap!
