We’ve just learned that an indie distribution company called FilmRise has just acquired the DVD and digital release rights to Showtime’s excellent global warming documentary Years of Living Dangerously, which was executive produced by James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. They’ll be releasing it on 9/7. Sadly, no Blu-ray release is currently planned. [Editor’s Update: FilmRise now tells us that a Blu-ray release IS planned, but details are still in the works. We’ll update you as new information comes in.]
And as some of you may be aware, the surviving members of Monty Python held a series of live “final reunion” stage shows in London last week, one of which was simulcast live in theaters here in the States this past weekend. We don’t yet have a U.S. Blu-ray and DVD release date for this event, but Eagle Rock Entertainment has already announced Monty Python Live (Mostly): One Down Five to Go for release on both formats in the U.K. on 11/10. Rest assured, Eagle Rock will be announcing it for release in the States around that time as well. We’ll post details as we have them. Meanwhile, you can see the cover artwork above.
And here’s the cover artwork for that Equalizer DVD box set (we’ll add the Amazon pre-order link as soon as it’s available)…
That’s all for now. Stay tuned…
