Burbank, CA, (August 11, 2017) – Warner Bros. Home Entertainment returns to the roots of DC’s greatest Super Heroes – and their unifying moment – with the celebratory release of Justice League: The New Frontier – Commemorative Edition on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, Blu-ray™ Steelbook, and DVD on October 3, 2017.
For the new Commemorative Edition of the popular 2008 PG-13 animated film, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has produced an all-new featurette spotlighting the late Darwyn Cooke. The comic book author and artist’s seminal work, DC: The New Frontier, received an Eisner, Harvey and Shuster Award, and that six-issue comic book limited series served as the key source material from which the film was adapted. Justice League: The New Frontier – Commemorative Edition also features box art from Cooke’s canon of dazzling New Frontier imagery.

Last month it was announced that the British series Misfits is set for a U.S. remake from Freeform, and now we have word on two more additions to the cast, with Deadline reporting that Charlie Saxton (Hung) and Dave Foley (NewsRadio) have joined the project as series regulars.
Saxton will play Simon, who is described as “Intelligent and odd, Simon makes his way through life ignored by the world at large. Alternately tormented and shunned by his roommates, Simon has just as much trouble connecting with the other misfits he meets at community service.” Foley is set to portray Bernie, “a disheveled driver (think Uber), he’s clumsy, dorky and wearing clothes from 1990. Everything about this guy screams ‘desperate’”.

With the Wonder Woman live action movie set to arrive in theaters in just over two months, it’s understandable that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment will want to put out as much merchandise bearing the likeness of the Amazon Princess as possible. One item in particular that’s worthy of attention is that of the forthcoming Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition.
Truth be told, it’s technically not a new offering, but rather a repackaging of the amazing animated film originally released back in 2009. Unfortunately, no R-rated cut will be included as was previously reported. Despite any second guessing you may have, do know that one exists out there somewhere, as the filmmakers have admitted they had to make some alterations in order to get the PG-13 rating because, at the time, WB didn’t afford as much leeway with mature content as they do now.
Moving on to the official synopsis, »
