Karyn Kusama's tense thriller The Invitation starring Logan Michael Green comes to Blu-ray 4 November

From acclaimed director Karyn Kusama (Girl Fight, Jennifer's Body, Destroyer) comes taut psychological thriller The Invitation, which premiered to great acclaim at London Film Festival and now gets a Blu-ray release from Second Sight on 4 November 2019.

Reluctantly accepting a dinner party invitation from his ex-wife Eden (Tammy Blanchard - Into the Woods) at the house they once shared, Will (Logan Marshall-Green - Spider-Man: Homecoming, Prometheus) and his new partner Kira (Emayatzy Corinealdi - Roots, Ballers) gather with old friends to toast new beginnings.

But Will and his ex-wife share a tragic past, and as paranoia mounts and tensions build, he begins to wonder what is real and what is imagined. As the claustrophobic evening grows increasingly sinister, Will starts to realise the lives of everyone he loves might be in danger...will they make it through the night?

The gathering is also attended by John Carroll Lynch (Fargo, American Horror Story), Michelle Krusiec (Hawaii 5-0), Lindsay Burge (Her Smell, Frances Ha) and Mike Doyle (Jersey Boys, Green Lantern), while long-time collaborators of Kusama's, Phil Hay & Matt Manfredi (The Boys, Clash of the Titans) pen the electric script.

Get your RSVPs in now for The Invitation, but be warned: it'll be a night to remember until the day you die...

'Tense and elegant...treats its audience like adults'

Spielberg, Lynch, Lucas and their Sound Designers feature in Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound, In cinemas 1 November 2019

From the first words uttered in pioneering film The Jazz Singer - "Wait a minute, wait a minute I tell yer, you ain't seen nothing yet!" - to the early sound years of cinema including All Quiet on the Western Front, King Kong and Singing In The Rain, to groundbreaking blockbusters such as Apocalypse Now, Star Wars, Top Gun and Jurassic Park, sound and sound design are an integral part of films and film history. Sound design makes a film, but, if done properly, most viewers won't even realise how a film's narrative and themes are being advanced. Now a new feature documentary puts sound in the spotlight and makes a noise about the sound effects that set the heart racing.

Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound reveals the hidden power of sound in cinema and is set to arrive in UK cinemas courtesy of Dogwoof. Through film clips, interviews and verite footage, the film captures the history, impact and creative process of this often overlooked art form, through the insights and stories of film legends including George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, David Lynch, Barbra Streisand, Ang Lee, Christopher Nolan, Sofia Coppola and Ryan Coogler and their sound design collaborators.

Coppola and Lucas have both declared that "sound is 50 per cent of the movie" with Spielberg saying "our ears lead our eyes to where the story lives." In Making Waves, we see and hear from the key players of sound design - including multi-Oscar winners Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now), Ben Burtt (Star Wars) and Gary Rydstrom (Saving Private Ryan) - who, in pursuing their art and desire to push the medium, are the very people who will go down in the history of cinema for developing sound into the immersive storytelling force it is today.

Lend us you ears and open your eyes for an epic journey into sound and its impact on our film experience and our lives.

'Fascinating and informative, it's a must-watch'

Screen International

'Will inspire viewers to seek out their favourite films and experience them with fresh ears'

Hollywood Reporter

'You'll likely never hear a film in the same way again after watching this thrilling celebration of the craft'

Slippery psychological thriller Kaleidoscope starring Toby Jones and Anne Reid comes to DVD 23 September

Garnering critical acclaim on its theatrical release, one of Britain's greatest actors of today Toby Jones 'glows' (The Guardian) as the lead in Kaleidoscope, a bleak, nightmarish psychological thriller written and directed by brother Rupert Jones in his feature film debut.

This intense thriller 'adds a decidedly 21st century bent to Hitchcockian suspense' (Spectrum Culture) and is set to arrive on UK digital platforms on 12 August 2019, followed by its DVD release on 23 September 2019. The cast includes Sinead Matthews (Jellyfish), Cecilia Noble (Danny and the Human Zoo) and a stand out turn from national treasure Anne Reid, MBE (Last Tango in Halifax).

A sparse, drab flat, on a housing estate in London, loud frantic knocking and a dog barking. We meet Carl Woods (Toby Jones - Don't Forget the Driver, Detectorists, Tinker Tailor, Soldier Spy), an ex-prisoner with dreams of starting a gardening business, as he's abruptly awoken from his sleep on the sofa. He goes to the door...no-one is there. Exploring the house, he notices lipstick traces on a glass, an ashtray full of cigarette butts...he goes upstairs and finds a shocking discovery: a dead body in the bathroom. But is everything as it seems?

'Slippery psychological thriller...facts of the story are fractured and distorted, seen through the prism of a broken mind'

★★★★

The Observer

'Intricately crafted, infinitely wrongfooting psychological thriller...A sharply styled debut feature'

Variety
