Josie & Jack

The Society's breakout star Olivia DeJonge is a sibling battling to escape her tyrannical father and forge her own place in the big city in Josie & Jack, the directorial debut from Hollywood actor Sarah Lancaster.

This raw and powerful drama from Lancaster (Chuck, Everwood) is based on Kelly Braffet's acclaimed book of the same name. The tense plot follows brother and sister duo Josie (Olivia DeJonge - Stray Dolls, The Society) and Jack (Alex Neustaedter - Colony, American Woman) Raeburn, who are raised by their tough father (William Fichtner - 12 Strong, Prison Break), a physics professor at a local university.

The two teens are isolated in a decrepit mansion in rural Pennsylvania, with only each other to depend on, but, following an argument with their father the two flee and try to make a life for themselves in New York. However, with Jack's behaviour becoming increasingly temperamental, Josie must decide between her loyalty to her brother and breaking free.

Dawn Of The Dead 4K UHD Release

After the huge success of its lavish Limited Edition box sets released in Autumn 2020, the dead are preparing to walk the earth once more as Second Sight announces the release of the definitive restored versions of George A Romero's zombie classic Dawn Of The Dead in standard editions on 22 March 2021.

The standard editions of this beautifully restored, comprehensive edition of the seminal horror, feature three different versions of the film, along with a fourth disc of special features across two separate formats Dawn Of The Dead 4K UHD and Dawn Of The Dead Blu-ray.

Acclaimed by fans and critics alike, these presentations offer completely restored versions of the film, each including the original theatrical cut, the extended "Cannes" cut and the Argento cut, making it the most comprehensive release ever of the film acknowledged to be one of the greatest horror movies of all time. Each version has a different commentary track, with the theatrical cut offering two.

The bonus disc of special features is packed with exclusive, new material as well as archive interviews, including the previously unreleased The Lost Romero Dawn Interview. Others include a tour of the shopping mall location, a look at its special effects and more.

The film originally arrived 10 years after the seminal Night of the Living Dead and ushered in a new era of zombie films. It showed Romero once again ahead of the curve, mixing biting political satire with state-of-the-art-gore for a genre defining masterpiece that packs as much of a punch today as it did 40 years ago.

With a zombie epidemic escalating, a small band of survivors seek refuge in that shrine to capitalism, the shopping mall. But the undead, still possessed by an instinctive desire to consume, have had the same idea... What follows is a nail-biting thrill-ride and fight to survive.

Oh, and watch out for those helicopter blades!




Reunion

Once home, the relationship between mother and daughter becomes further strained and Ellie starts to experience strange occurrences and disturbing dreams about her long-dead sister Cara.

As her life becomes increasingly fraught, Ellie must face her demons and the horrific truth about her past.

A family reunion can be hell...




An Impossible Project

In the world we live in, sometimes a digital download or an image on a screen just isn't enough - we're missing physical connection. We need to hold and feel to connect, awaken our senses and evoke our emotions.

Digital has taken over our lives, from the constant buzz of phone notifications to social-media stories that disappear forever and millions of photos stored on our devices rather than taking pride of place on the mantelpiece. We have apps for everything, from fitness to baking and even for sleeping. We're reading e-books, streaming, sharing, posting - this is our reality. It's time for a reset.

An inspiring new feature documentary AN IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT that celebrates all things analogue is an antidote to digital. This warm and witty celebration of a counter-revolution - the come-back of analogue - is set for its UK premiere from Bohemia Media on 15 March 2021. The film - shot on 35mm and with an amazing live orchestra score - will premiere on YourScreen and digital platforms and (subject to Covid restrictions) in cinemas at a later date.

The film follows modern-day Don Quixote, Florian "Doc" Kaps, an eccentric, enigmatic Viennese biologist who risks his career and entire fortune to take on AN IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT to save the world's last Polaroid factory. A courageous, against-the-odds mission to break free from the seemingly unstoppable advance of technology, the story of this self-proclaimed 'Patron Saint of all things analogue' is told in this thought-provoking film from director/producer Jens Meurer (Public Enemy, Russian Ark, Carlos).

In an ode to physical formats, the film charts Doc's drive to keeping analogue alive. His obsession and passion takes him on a journey across the globe where he encounters like-minded souls who share his passion for the tangible, from photography to vinyl. Along the way Doc meets others analogue superheroes: there's Moleskine founder Maria Sebregondi, a direct-to-vinyl recording session in Vienna with American Idol singer Hayley Reinhart, and a fateful trip to the Sudbahnhotel, a 1902 Grand Hotel in the Alps, an all-analogue wonder that has stood empty but fully functional for 43 years and that's set for a revival... and a there's surprise twist in the tale.

AN IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT is an affecting and entertaining film that offers a deep, satisfying breath of haptic fresh air in these increasingly unreal times. Shot on 35mm and featuring a soundtrack recorded direct to vinyl by a 40-piece jazz orchestra, this intriguing documentary provides nostalgia, wit and warmth from start to finish, as we follow the wonderful underdog story of a charming visionary who has never given up on making the impossible possible. It inspires us to choose our own 'impossible'.

NOS4A2 Series 1 & 2 & Complete Box Set

STAR TREK'S Zachary Quinto stars as the evil Charlie Manx in NOS4A2, a different kind of vampire story based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name by Joe Hill, acclaimed novelist and son of horror maestro Stephen King.
