Columbia in October
Columbia Tristar have announced their Region 2 October release schedule - as has been the case a lot recently, there doesn't appear to be any 'choice' titles in the line-up, but what has been announced seem to be fairly solid discs.
The Tailor Of Panama stars Pierce Brosnan (The World Is Not Enough) as yet another spy in a tongue in cheek thriller. We also get to see an excellent performance by Geoffrey Rush (Quills) and Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween). The DVD will feature a director's commentary, a converstation with Brosnan and Rush, an alternative ending, trailer (including cross-promotional trailers) and filmographies. We can expect a 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer and a retail price of £19.99.
Next up is Girl Fight which has the distinction of featuring both a debut director and main star. The film has already gathered quite a selection of awards including Best Direction and the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2000 and Young Cinema Award at Cannes. Girl Fight is directed by Karyn Kusama and stars Michelle Rodriguez (soon to be seen in The Fast and The Furious and 3AM). The DVD will feature an audio commentary, featurette, trailer and filmographies and will retail for £19.99 when it is released on 15 October.
Everlasting Piece is the latest outing for director Barry Levinson (Rainman, Good Morning Vietnam) and is set in Belfast during the 1980's. Fans of the Big Yin will be pleased to hear that Billy Connolly makes an appearance as a criminally insane wig salesman. The DVD us due on 15 October retailing for £19.99. The last of the month's big releases is Tomcats staring Jerry O'Connell (Jerry Maguire, Scream 2), Jake Busey (Enemy of the State) and Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie) in a 'hilarious and sexy comedy about hooking up, hanging out and trying to stay single'.
