Blu-ray Release: Rollerball (1975)

18 April 2014 3:22 PM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray Release Date: May 13, 2014

Price: Blu-ray $29.95

Studio: Twilight Time

The 1975 sci-fi-tinged action-sports film Rollerball, one of the Seventies great dystopian future-shock flicks, finally makes its Blu-ray debut courtesy of Twilight Time.

In the future, there will be no war. But there will be Rollerball.

Rollerball posits a future—in this case a not-so-far-away 2018—in which war has been replaced by the titular game, a gladiatorial spectacle of violence that helps keep the global populace entertained and anesthetized. Emerging from this hard-hitting “sport” is a  champion, Jonathan E (James Caan, Thief), whose individual expertise defeats the worldwide corporate leadership’s design: to emphasize the futility of individual effort. Corporate big-wigs (icily incarnated by The Fog‘s John Houseman) need Jonathan to retire, but Jonathan begins to have his own dangerous ideas.

Directed by Norman Jewison (Fiddler on the Roof) and written by William Harrison, the film also stars Moses Gunn (Wusa »

Big turning points in the James Bond movie franchise

20 February 2014 4:51 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Michael Reed 21 Feb 2014 - 05:56

We take a look at some potential turning points that could have altered the Bond legacy significantly...

007 lists resurrection amongst his hobbies, but speculation is our game today. Your own ideal fantasy James Bond film probably depends on what sort of Bond you're into. If you like serious Bond, you probably consider it a crying shame that Timothy Dalton didn't get to make at least one more film. A fair proportion of the fandom consider Never Say Never Again to be one of the worst of the series, so for them, rolling the dice on a 1976 production with a different actor and a more exciting script would have been worth it.

Furthermore, a Sony Pictures produced rival film with, say, Liam Neeson in the late 1990s could have been fascinating. How about Connery returning to the role in his 60s? All of these possibilities »

Tom Hiddleston turns 33: The many talents of the Thor star

9 February 2014 2:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Hiddleston is a talented, talented man. This won't come as a shock to many – the British actor is currently winning raves for his Coriolanus in the West End, has made himself indispensable to the Marvel Universe despite originally being conceived as a one-shot villain, and is gearing up to star in Guillermo del Toro and Ben Wheatley's next projects.

But Hiddleston's talents go far beyond the normal bounds of the stage and screen. Forget a triple threat – he's closer to an octuple threat.

As everybody's favourite trickster god turns 33, Digital Spy takes a look back at just a few of his key skills.

Singing

One thing you're going to learn from this list is that Hiddleston knows how to work a crowd. While promoting upcoming animated adventure The Pirate Fairy at Disney's D23 Expo, Hiddleston took a moment to serenade the rapt audience with a rendition of Jungle Book classic 'The Bare Necessities', »

Exclusive Interview With ‘Vicious’ Star Philip Voss

3 January 2014 1:00 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

ITV

The ITV sitcom Vicious, in which Sirs Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi played a barbarous, elderly gay couple, was a surprise hit. The recent Christmas special was equally well-received and work has already commenced on the second series. One of the stars of that show is Philip Voss, who plays one of Freddie (McKellen) and Stuart’s (Jacobi) oldest friends, Mason.

Voss is a face that’s popped up all over the shop across the years, from Doctor Who alongside William Hartnell to Octopussy, and is a regular face in Richard Curtis movies such as Four Weddings… and About Time. But he is first and foremost a theatre actor, having received plaudits for his portrayal of Shylock in the RSC’s 1998 production of The Merchant of Venice, arguably one of the definitive portrayals of the character on stage. Having an admiration for actors both on stage and on-screen- especially »
