Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives hits DVD & Digital in October 2016

What we're going to do right here is go back, way back in time, to a time before rappers had direct access to fans through the likes of YouTube and social media, back to when there was only one place to be heard...that place was the Stretch and Bobbito's radio show.

During the 1990s The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show was responsible for introducing some of the biggest names in hip hop to the world, including unsigned rappers Nas, Biggie Smalls, Fat Joe, Big Pun, DMX and Wu-Tang Clan, as well as unknown artists Jay-Z, Eminem and the Fugees. All went on to have major record deals with total record sales for all artists that premiered on the show exceeding 300 million.

With its offbeat humour, exclusive music, in-studio freestyles and demo battles, the late night radio show had a huge cult following from hip hop heads, through to the art and fashion world and the prison population and created a platform that changed music forever.

Now the story of two friends whose love of music made them unlikely legends by bringing a unique audience together and breaking the world's biggest rap stars, can be seen in the amazing feature documentary Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives, which makes its DVD debut as an HMV exclusive on 14 October 2016 and general release on DVD and digital download on 24 October 2016 thanks to STUDIOCANAL.

With a slew of awe-inspiring rarely seen footage including a long-lost verse from a 16-year-old The Notorious B.I.G. in a battle with Bronx Zu and interviews with the men themselves, Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Garcia, and superstars Jay-Z, Nas, Busta Rhymes, Raekwon, Common, Eminem and many more, Stretch and Bobbito: Radio That Changed Lives is guaranteed to have you jumping.




The film they didn't want us to see The Killing of America makes its FrightFest premiere this weekend and UK Blu-ray debut in October 2016

Described as "among the most controversial documentaries in the history of cinema", Sheldon Renan and Academy Award nominee Leonard Schrader's (Kiss Of The Spider Woman, Mishima, Blue Collar) The Killing of America is a graphic and provocative examination of America's history, complete with senseless violence, mass shootings and cold-blooded murder.

Never distributed, televised or made available for sale in the United States, this provocative documentary now arrives in the UK, courtesy of Severin Films, in a fully restored edition and makes its FrightFest premiere on 29 August 2016. A limited theatrical release will follow and, on 24 October, the first ever UK Blu-ray release of the infamous 'shock doc' arrives loaded with exclusive special features - including the even more unnerving Japanese version known as Violence U.S.A. - which remains one of the most profoundly disturbing and still chillingly relevant documentary experiences of our time. A DVD version will also be available.

With gun crime at an all-time high in the USA and the UK, and increasing year on year, the film is as relevant today as it was in 1981. At the time of the film an attempted murder happened every three mins and a murder every 20 minutes. The film looks at the staggering violence in explicit detail and features alarming archive footage of brutal violence from massacres to assassinations and beyond.

The Killing of America features interviews with police, coroners and mass murderers including Ed Kemper and Wayne Henley, as well as exclusive footage of some the World's most prolific serial killers from Ted Bundy, Charles Manson, Son of Sam David Berkowtz, to the Hillside Strangler Kenneth Bianchi and Sidewalk Sniper Sam Brown. It features footage and reports of some of the most high-profile assassinations including John F Kennedy, Robert F Kennedy, Martin Luther King and John Lennon.

The shocking scenes reflect a violent nation, although little has been done since it was made more than 35 years ago - it is estimated that the US population still own a whopping 300 million guns of all sizes and shapes - almost enough guns for every man, woman and child in the population. And figures suggest that since 1968, there have been 1.4 million deaths caused by firearms - more than the total killed in wars fought by America from the Independence battles through to Iraq... The Killing of America lays bare the tragic and brutal history of one of the most powerful nations in the world.




Sour Grapes arrives in UK cinemas on 16 September 2016

With pockets full of cash, charisma and a preternatural memory for vintages, an unassuming young Rudy Kurniawan earns the reputation of a wine savant, surrounding himself with some of high society's most fervent wine connoisseurs. But when Bill Koch, a top US collector, and, Laurent Ponsot, a Burgundian wine producer, discover suspicious bottles, a humorous and suspenseful investigation begins into one of the most ingenious cons of our time.

It's the kind of story that sounds more like a work of fiction, or the kind of yarn recounted after a few bottles of Burgundy, but the tale of Rudy Kurniawan, wine connoisseur and trader, who sold a whopping $35 million worth of vintage wine at just two auctions, is as true as it comes.

With a plot that has more than a hint of international crime thriller and a dose of satire, SOUR GRAPES - deftly directed by Jerry Rothwell (Town of Runners) and Reuben Atlas (Brothers Hypnotic) and a Met Film and Faites Un Voeu co-production - features FBI agents, dodgy auction houses, international collectors, money men, and outraged wine producers. See for yourself when SOUR GRAPES opens across the UK on 16 September.

The Commitments 25th Anniversary Special Edition comes to Blu-ray and DVD on 19 September 2016

'Have you got soul? If so the World's hardest working band is looking for you'

25 YEARS ago, on the big screen, wannabe band manager Jimmy Rabbitte put this advert in the local newspaper and before long a loveable ragtag group of Dubliners got together to form the soulful sounds of The Commitments.

Renowned director Alan Parker's (Midnight Express, Bugsy Malone), funny, uplifting, gritty film, based on Roddy Doyle's (The Snapper, The Van), debut novel, took the world by storm on its 1991 release, garnering critical acclaim and awards galore including a BAFTA for Best Film. It has since spawned a slew of touring bands and a hugely successful stage musical which commences its UK tour later this year.

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this seminal film, RLJ Entertainment is thrilled to release The Commitments Special Edition, featuring a host of bonus features, including brand new interviews with Alan Parker and cast members and much much more. It will be released in both Blu-ray and DVD formats, with a digital copy to download, watch and own, and a collectible booklet, on 19 September 2016.

Jimmy Rabbitte (Robert Arkins) knows he's the world's greatest band manager...now he just needs a band. Auditioning anyone and everyone he can find from the rough streets of Dublin, he eventually gathers the ten most talented, but least experienced musicians with the aim of launching the greatest Irish Soul band of all time.

Featuring a cast of virtually unknown actors at the time, Alan Parker based his casting on musical ability as well as acting and this is reflected in the spectacular performances from The Commitments with their stunning renditions of Soul greats, creating an astounding, unforgettable soundtrack.

With a screenplay from award-winning writing duo Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais (The Likely Lads, Porridge), and a cast that includes Andrew Strong, Michael Aherne, Angeline Ball, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Dave Finnegan, Bronagh Gallagher, Glen Hansard, Dick Massey, Johnny Murphy, Kenneth McCluskey, a pre multi-million selling recording artist Andrea Corr and hilarious star turns from Colm Meaney and Sean Hughes, you know it's got soul.
