Underbelly Series 2

Australia, 1976. Hard drugs hit the nation like a tsunami. Drug money flooded the underworld. With new money came a new breed of hard men and willing women.

Now this story is told in the second series of the multi-award winning Australian true crime series Underbelly Series 2: A Tale of Two Cities, and comes to DVD on 5 September with music composed by Golden Globe winner Burkhard von Dallwitz (The Truman Show). This season is set around the drug trade of New South Wales and Victoria between 1976-1987, and follows the rise and fall of real life Australian crime underworld figures, told from both sides of the law.

The Commitments

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.

Sour Grapes

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.
