Dawn French and Emilia Fox Return for Delicious Series Three and Complete Box Set DVD release

Following the huge popularity of the first two series' Sky One serves up a third helping of Delicious, one of its most successful series ever, bringing the perfect pairing of Dawn French and Emilia Fox back to our screens. The tasty series three is set to arrive on DVD 28 January 2019, alongside Delicious Series One - Three Box Set, courtesy of Acorn Media International. The complete series will also be available on digital to download and keep from 19 January 2019.

Passionate cook Gina (Dawn French) was once married to Leo Vincent (Iain Glen), a successful entrepreneur, chef and hotel owner in Cornwall. Leo owes much of his success to Gina's exceptional cooking, but since leaving her for the glamorous Sam (Emilia Fox), his business has continued to thrive. When Sam has suspicions that Leo is having an affair, she confides in Gina but the secrets and scandals that spill out are proof that sleeping with another woman's husband is never a good idea even if he was your husband first. In series three we return to the Penrose hotel, where Sam and Gina are hosting a glamorous charity auction. Still working and living together, not quite as best friends, following Leo's adulterous legacy, the two ex-wives appear united but have very different visions for their future. How long can this harmony last?

'The setting is stunning and what with all that scrumptious food, it's a feast for the eyes, not to mention the ears. Glorious telly'

Rainer Werner Fassbinder's dystopian sci-fi epic World on a Wire gets Limited Edition Blu-ray Release

Rainer Werner Fassbinder's dystopian sci-fi epic World on a Wire was way ahead of its time, with fascinating themes that would later be explored in films such as The Matrix. Now this hugely influential classic arrives as a stunningly restored Limited Edition Blu-ray Box Set from Second Sight.

Originally created for TV by the radical and often controversial filmmaker, it centres around Simulacron 1, a highly advanced project designed to elevate conventional computer technology to a new level by creating a virtual reality, inhabited by computer generated people or 'identity units'. When the head of the project dies mysteriously, Dr Stiller becomes his successor. As the new doctor begins to probe deeper, the line between the real and virtual worlds become increasingly blurred and his own existence comes into question.

Fassbinder's science fiction masterpiece has a rare and well-deserved 100% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes and explores themes as relevant as ever, to our swiftly technologically advancing world.

The World on a Wire Limited Edition Blu-ray arrives on 18 February 2019, in rigid slipcase packaging, and a 50-page perfect-bound booklet, alongside with a host of outstanding new special features.

This new restoration, supervised by The Rainer Werner Fassbinder Foundation and cinematographer Michael Ballhaus (Goodfellas, The Departed), comes 45 years after its initial release and still pushes audiences to question the world around them.

SPECIAL FEATURES

- No Strings Attached - an interview with assistant director Renate Leiffer

- Observing Fassbinder - a tribute to photographer Peter Gauhe

- Looking Ahead to Today documentary

- On-set featurette

- Original Broadcast Recap

- The Simulation Argument - an interview with Professor Nick Bostrom

LIMITED EDITION CONTENTS

- Rigid slipcase packaging

- 50-page perfect-bound booklet featuring new essays by Anton Bitel and Daniel Bird, archival writing by Daniel Oberhaus and Christian Braad Thomsen, stills and rare on-set photos by Peter Gauhe

'An opulent and elaborate epic...plays like 'Chinatown'...So, so much style'

Crucible of the Vampire starring Neil Morrissey, Katie Goldfinch and Florence Cady in cinemas 1 February 2019

Making its World Premiere at Cannes Film Festival and garnering rave reviews at other major festivals, Iain Ross- McNamee's gothic chiller Crucible of the Vampire is set to arrives in UK cinemas on 1 February 2019, followed by its home entertainment release on 4 February 2019 in dual format DVD and Blu-ray and on digital platforms courtesy of Screenbound Entertainment.

Starring British acting favourite Neil Morrissey (Line of Duty, Men Behaving Badly), alongside rising stars Katie Goldfinch and Florence Cady, this brooding vampire tale gives a strong nod to classic British horror greats and the genre defining Hammer Horror films.

A young museum curator Isabelle (Katie Goldfinch) is sent to look at an ancient artefact, discovered in the basement of a stately home in Shropshire. Welcomed into the sprawling manor house by a seemingly hospitable family; Karl (Larry Rew), his wife Evelyn (Babette Barat) and their beautiful daughter Scarlet (Florence Cady), but all is not what it seems, as a dark and terrifying secret hangs over them.

When Isabelle discovers the truth within the mansion's foreboding walls, can she escape the clutches of its malevolent occupants? This immortal tale, which moves from the English Civil War to the present day, is smart, stylish, sexy and as sharp as vampire's teeth.

'Such an engaging story that is both broodingly ethereal, visually eloquent and thoroughly enjoyable'

Starburst

'There's something of a retro Golden Age of Brit horror kick to Crucible of the Vampire... a joyous nostalgia trip'

Groundbreaking classic 'The Boys In The Band' arrives on Blu-ray 11 February

Groundbreaking queer cinema classic The Boys In The Band was one of director William Friedkin's earliest works, and a hugely controversial film on its original 1970 release, dividing the gay community in the US and beyond. Now, years after it became notable not just for featuring an all-gay cast but as being the first mainstream movie to use the C word, making its UK Blu-ray debut courtesy of Second Sight on 11 February.

Based on the seminal Broadway hit of the same name, playwright Mart Crowley adapted his own play for the big screen, creating a script full of acerbic speeches and cutting one liners for his cast of unforgettable characters. The original stage cast including Kenneth Nelson, Peter White and Leonard Frey all starred in the film, one that Friedkin rates as 'one of the few films I've made that I can still watch".

Famed for its caustic wit, savage putdowns and many expletives, the film follows a group of gay men celebrating one of their friend's birthdays, amid much drunken backbiting and, as the drink flows, the evening descends even further...

'The Boys in the Band has gone through backlashes and re-evaluations, but its truthfulness remains, not as a coming-out drama but as a keyhole into the lives of already-confident outsiders'
