MGM in September

MGM have sent through details of their September Region 2 DVD line up and it goes something like this...

18 September sees the Region 2 release of Oliver Stone's critically acclaimed and multiple award winning Platoon. The movie is a brutal first-hand account of the Vietnam war starring Charlie Sheen, William Defoe and Tom Berenger. The DVD will feature the original theatrical trailer and a 8 page colour film guide - expect the transfer to be in the original aspect ratio although this has yet to be confirmed. Another Vietnam film, Missing in Action starring Chuck Norris is due for release on the same day along with another conflict-based film, Navy SEALS starring Charlie Sheen, Michael Biehn and Joanne Whalley-Kilmer.

Rounding off the 18 September releases we have Red Dawn which focuses on the beginning of World War III - and a group of American teenagers who go up against the Soviet army. Both frighteningly realistic and terrifying, the DVD will also feature the original theatrical trailer.

25 September see's the release of not one but two Bond DVD's - You Only Live Twice and On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Both get the special edition treatment and they most certainly deserve a place in any DVD collection.

You Only Live Twice stars Donald Pleasance as Ernst Stavro Blofeld - a firm favourite with the fans! The DVD will feature a 30-minute making of featurette entitled 'Inside You Only Live Twice', 'Silhouettes' - a 20-minute featurette on the James Bond series, an animated storyboard sequence focusing on a plane crash, a director's commentary, double-bill trailers featurring both YOLT and Thunderball along with various other trailers and radio spots.

George Lazenby takes on the starring role in the second release of the day - On Her Majesty's Secret Service. The film also stars another fan favourite, Diana Rigg and Telly Savalas takes over the role of Blofeld. Once again, we won't be left wanting in the extras department as the DVD will feature a 40-minute making of documentary entitled (surprisingly!) 'Inside On Her Majesty's Secret Service', 'Inside Q's Lab' - a look at the Bond Gadgets, a commentary featuring Director, Peter Hunt and assorted cast and crew members, a release trailer and various TV and radio spots...

All of MGM's releases will retail at £19.99...
