CultFilms set to release newly remastered version of Luchino Visconti's final film The Innocent on Blu-ray 10 April

Maestro of cinema Luchino Visconti's final film The Innocent aka L'Innocente gets a superbly restored and HD-remastered release for the first time on Blu-ray, courtesy of CultFilms.

Visconti's epoch-closing tour de force, with its acclaimed cinematography, is shown in its full glory with the first ever release in widescreen HD taken from restored materials. This impressive release of the director's last film, he died on its completion, features a previously unseen documentary, separate Italian audio and new improved subtitles and arrives on both Blu-ray and DVD formats, alongside a digital release on 10 April 2017.

Visconti, the father of Neo Realism revisits the dramatic themes from his award winning The Leopard in his final work of art The Innocent aka L'Innocente. Set in the late 19th Century against an opulent backdrop of "fin-de-siecle" aristocratic decadence, the film is driven by a formidable performance from Giancarlo Giannini (Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace), whose antihero displays hitherto uncharted monstrosity.

Tullio (Giannini), having left his wife for his latest mistress, is seized by jealous fury when he discovers that his wife has also taken a lover. Outraged by this unsuspected audacity, he will do everything to reconquer her...




Mario Lanza: The Best of Everything - the story behind the original Superstar on DVD 27 March

Before Elvis and before The Beatles, there was Mario Lanza...a true superstar before the word even existed. An unparalleled singer and film star of his time, Lanza's legend continues today. The story of his extraordinary rise to fame is told in a brand-new feature documentary Mario Lanza: The Best of Everything which is set for its international broadcast and a UK DVD debut courtesy of Screenbound Pictures.

Mario Lanza was the most famous tenor the world had ever known. Even the greatest tenors of the modern era - Pavarotti, Carreras, Domingo and Bocelli - all trace their inspiration back to Lanza. Pop greats such as Elvis and Frank Sinatra also saw him as a great influence and possessing a voice that could never be equalled.

Trained for a career in opera, Lanza became the first true crossover artist when MGM made him a matinee idol during the 1950s with box office hits such as The Toast of New Orleans and The Great Caruso, which was the highest grossing film at the global box office in 1951.

Lanza was the original megastar, a true icon who filled venues all over the world with his unique blend of both classical and popular music hits. His recordings of The Loveliest Night of the Year, O Solo Mio, Beloved and his signature ballad, Be My Love sold millions.

But within 10 years, the star that glowed so brightly burned itself out. Lanza's sudden passing in 1959 at the age of 38 was the first tragic death of the modern pop and rock era.

Mario Lanza: The Best of Everything is an official new documentary complete with footage of the great man himself and revealing interviews with Russell Watson, Lesley Garrett, Jospeh Valleja, Ellisa Lanza Bregman, Gianluca Terranova, Steve Hackett, Derek Mannering and Dr Voice. It arrives on DVD on 27 March 2017 and makes the perfect Mother's Day gift.

This is the story of the great Mario Lanza, a true original.

'The greatest voice of the 20th century'

Arturo Toscanini

'A voice like you'll never hear again'

Frank Sinatra

'Lanza's passion and the way his voice sounds are what made me sing opera'

The Good Karma Hospital set for DVD release on 13 March 2017 plus Digital

Set in a stunning coastal town in tropical South India comes a brand-new ITV drama The Good Karma Hospital starring a wealth of great acting talent including Amanda Redman (New Tricks), Amrita Acharia (Game of Thrones) and Neil Morrissey (Line of Duty). This heart-warming six-part series arrives on DVD and digital courtesy of RLJ Entertainment's Acorn label.

The Good Karma Hospital is a run-down but resourceful hospital, run by the wonderfully eccentric Lydia Fonseca (Redman). Held together by a hand-picked team of British and Indian medics, the Good Karma turns no-one away - locals, ex-pats and tourists are all welcome.

The series follows the lives and loves of the hardworking team, as they travel the red dirt roads to patients staying in five-star beach resorts or inland - through lush green jungles - to help local villagers. Back at the hospital, any story can walk through the door.

When junior doctor Ruby Walker (Acharia), arrives in India looking for a job and a distraction from the heartache of a broken relationship, she is prepared for the sun, sea and perfect setting, and even the sacred cows, the tuk-tuks and tummy troubles, but what she doesn't expect are the realities of work, life and even love at an over-worked, underfunded medical centre. But as Doctor Walker adjusts to life in India, she realises that the Good Karma Hospital is more than just a rundown medical outpost - it's the beating heart of the community, and home.

This life-affirming Indian-set medical drama mixes the heart-breaking with the humorous, and arrives on DVD in a two-disc set on 13 March 2017. It will also be available on digital - iTunes, Amazon and Google - the day after each episode airs on ITV.

'Enjoyable, full of humour, intrigues and happy endings... sure to become a regular Sunday evening ritual'

The Observer

'Bursting with colour, sun and great one-liners'
