Looking for Richard

Hollywood icon Al Pacino (The Godfather) unravels the mysteries and challenges of portraying Shakespeare's most intriguing villain, King Richard III, in the star-studded documentary Looking for Richard, which is set to arrive on DVD on 17 October 2016 courtesy of Odyssey Video.

Written, starring, directed and presented by Pacino, this labour of love features a jaw-dropping cast including Kevin Spacey (American Beauty), Winona Ryder (Heathers), Alec Baldwin (30 Rock), Kenneth Branagh (Wallander), Derek Jacobi (Last Tango in Halifax), John Gielgud (Chariots of Fire), Vanessa Redgrave (Howards End) and James Earl Jones (Star Wars).

Scored by the award-winning composer Howard Shore (The Lord of the Rings), the movie combines performances of scenes from Richard III and interviews with leading Shakespeare scholars and actors on both Richard III and Shakespeare's relevance to the modern world. Pacino won a Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary for the film, which is a remarkable directorial debut.

The Electric Horseman

Sexual chemistry crackles between double Oscar winners Robert Redford (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) and Jane Fonda (Nine to Five) in The Electric Horseman, a romantic comedy adventure directed by acclaimed director Sydney Pollack (Tootsie), which is set for a DVD release on 17 October 2016 thanks to Odyssey Video.

Sonny Steele (Robert Redford) has swapped his previous life as a rodeo champion for a corporate gig as a brand spokesman in a garish electrified cowboy suit. Everything changes at a Las Vegas convention when, appalled that the racehorse he is riding has been doped, he gallops away into the desert to restore the horse to freedom. In hot pursuit behind him are the state police, his employers, and not least, investigative journalist Hallie Martin (Jane Fonda).

The film features a stunning score by Academy Award-winning composer Dave Grusin (The Fabulous Baker Boys), and stars country music legend Willie Nelson, of supergroup The Highwaymen, in his feature film debut. Impressively, Robert Redford did all his own riding stunts and loved the horse so much he brought it home and kept it for the rest of its life. This autumn, gallop into the sunset with this madcap caper.

The Legend of King Arthur

Andrew Davies' (House of Cards) sumptuous adaptation of the timeless saga, The Legend of King Arthur, makes its home entertainment debut on 10 October 2016 with the complete 1979 series.

Dark Ages wizard Merlin (Robert Eddison - Indiana Jones), weary of the barbarism around him, creates a new order of enlightenment and justice with a youthful Arthur (Andrew Burt - Emmerdale) at its head. Merlin presents Arthur with the magic sword Excalibur to help him defeat the nobles who oppose his rule. But Arthur must also beware his half-sister Morgan (Maureen O'Brien - Doctor Who), a sorceress who has sworn to kill him to avenge her father's death.

As Morgan intensifies her campaign, she uses magic to draw Lancelot (David Robb - Downton Abbey) and Guinevere (Felicity Dean - The Whistle Blower) into a passionate affair. But it is the still more traitorous Mordred (Steve Hodson - Break in the Sun) who will fatally halt Arthur's rule.

Bringing high romance, low treachery and magical adventure via a host of legendary characters and featuring an early appearance by Patsy Kensit (Holby City), this is a fabulous retelling of the gloriously twisting tale.

Bite

So graphic that sick bags were handed out at the world premiere, the gut-wrenching gore fest Bite, about one woman's sickening transformation, gets its first UK DVD release in October courtesy of Second Sight Films.

While partying on a bachelorette getaway with her friends, bride-to-be Casey (Elma Begovic - Tear Us Apart) is bitten by a mysterious, unseen bug. On returning home what first appears to be a nasty infection rapidly mutates into something far more sinister as Casey takes on an horrific insect-like transformation.

Shedding skin, vomiting acidic bile, biting off nails and excreting slime drenched eggs all over her newly created nest, Casey must now find flesh to feed on.

As her transformation becomes complete, Casey discovers that everything can change with a single bite.

Written and directed by Chad Archibald (The Drownsman) this fantastically gruesome body-horror will be released on DVD on 10 October 2016.
