Giveaway – Win Army of One on Blu-ray

21 January 2017 10:00 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the release of Army Of One – available on Digital Download 23rd Jan. and DVD/Blu-ray 6th Feb. 2017 – we are giving away a copy on Blu-ray and an iTunes download code courtesy of Arrow Films!

Hollywood legend Nicolas Cage is at his gonzo, goofball best as an American man on a mission to single-handedly mount a war on terror in Army Of One.

Directed by comedy genius Larry Charles (Borat, Bruno, The Dictator, Curb Your Enthusiasm), it’s made all the more berserk and bizarre by the fact that it is a true story!

As the feckless, reckless bearded Faulkner – a real life character whose ill-equipped warlord hunting antics astounded the world – Cage is mesmerizingly hilarious. Gleefully unhinged, sporting combat gear and wraparound shades, he plays beautifully off stand-up superstar Russell Brand (as God) and Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids), as the high school crush who helps him prepare for his ill-advised solo mission. »

Brand adds that being a parent — a duty he shares with girlfriend Laura Gallacher — is “the most wonderful thing” and a “wonderful experience.”

But those are just a few instances in which celebs are incorporating crystals in their »

Trolls Invades Your Home Digitally Jan. 24, Disc Feb. 7

11 January 2017 10:50 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Los Angeles, CA (Jan. 10, 2016) – A hit with audiences and critics alike, DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls, is the “feel-good” movie of the year receiving an outstanding audience reaction with a coveted “A” CinemaScore® and a Certified Fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.com. DreamWorks Trolls, the fresh, music-filled adventure packed with humor and heart dances onto Digital HD on Jan. 24 and Blu-ray™ and DVD on Feb. 7 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

The colorful, richly textured Troll Village is full of optimistic Trolls, who are always ready to sing, dance and party. When the comically pessimistic Bergens invade, Poppy (Anna Kendrick), the happiest Troll ever born, and the overly-cautious, curmudgeonly Branch (Justin Timberlake) set off on an epic journey to rescue her friends.  Their mission is full of adventure and mishaps, as this mismatched duo try to tolerate each other long enough to get the job done.
