11 of the weirdest bootleg DVD covers: True Detective, Batman Begins

18 October 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Translating movies and television for international markets can be a tricky business, as we discovered last year when we assembled this collection of 20 titles that got lost in translation.

But if you want to descend to a whole new level of weirdness, you need to look beyond the official channels. Whether it's a pirated disc being hawked in the street or a bona fide copy resold in unofficial packaging, these are products where the normal quality standards simply do not apply.

Below we've rounded up 11 of the world's most bizarre bootleg DVD covers, featuring dodgy Photoshopping, garbled Babelfish-style synopses, and entire actors being accidentally dropped in from other movies or TV shows.

1. True Detective

God, True Detective was a great show. Remember that episode where Rust and Marty go to Vegas and live it up in faux-Paris before narrowly escaping an exploding building on the back of a phoenix?

Planes 2: Fire & Rescue review - Better than its predecessor

8 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Roberts Gannaway; Screenwriter Jeffrey M Howard ; Starring: Dane Cook, Ed Harris, Julie Bowen, Curtis Armstrong, Teri Hatcher, John Michael Higgins, Patrick Warburton, Wes Studi; Running time: 84 mins; Certificate: U

After Planes flew into cinemas last summer and proved to be a crushing disappointment, it's probably fair to say that nobody is getting particularly hyped up for its sequel, Fire & Rescue. Perhaps these rock-bottom expectations are a good thing, because Planes 2 feels like a significant upgrade on its distinctly run-of-the-mill predecessor, which was initially going to be a direct-to-dvd release before it found its way onto the big screen.

Dane Cook returns to voice Dusty Crophopper, who this time around sees his racing career shot to pieces when he discovers a fault in his gearbox. This immediately creates a search for purpose and meaning more compelling than anything in Planes - what's more heartbreaking, chasing a dream or coming »

21 shocking straight-to-video sequels: How many have you seen?

5 July 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

What's the only thing worse than a sequel? The only prospect worse than paying £10 at your local cinema to have your favourite movie ruined, forever. The answer has three words. Straight-to-video.

In the '90s, home release sequels became fairly common. You'd greet them with surprise at your local Blockbusters and then want to pull your eyeballs out when you took them home and watched them. They're probably called straight-to-dvd or straight-to-Blu-ray now, but they still exist.

Here are 21 absolute stinking sequels - the vast majority of which weren't even considered good enough for the cinema. How many of them have you watched?

1. American Pie Presents: Band Camp

2. American Pie Presents: Beta House

Maybe it's the Eugene Levy factor - just why did he keep starring in all the sequels?! - but we have weird sentimentality for the American Pie home release collection. We know that they're not technically canon, »

Watch: Honest Trailer For 'The Lion King' As Disney Plans 'Avengers'-Esque Small Screen Spinoff

10 June 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

With "Maleficent" cleaning up, and live action reboots of "Cinderella" and "Beauty And The Beast" along the way, Disney continues to reach into the vault to exploit their classic titles for new cash as much as possible. And with "The Lion King" already making nearly a billion dollars worldwide at its time of release twenty years ago, Disney certainly already tried. They knocked out a direct-to-video sequel in 1998, "The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride," and in 1995 there was the series "Timon & Pumbaa" which lasted five seasons. And now the mouse house is ready to bring Simba and co. back to the small screen. Sorta. The Wall Street Journal reveals that Disney Junior and Disney Channel will unveil "The Lion Guard" next year. The story will focus on Kion, Simba's son, who works with a group of animals to protect the jungle. “It’s kind of like ‘The Lion King’ meets ‘The Avengers, »

Soundtrack For 'In Your Eyes' Features Iron & Wine, Santigold, Song Written By Joss Whedon & More

4 June 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It ought to be easy to dislike Joss Whedon. He's an absurdly talented, extremely laid-back mega-geek who created some of the finest TV ever and now gets to play with all Marvel's money and makes little indie movies on the side just because he can... and he's also a musician. This isn't really news, since Whedon wrote the “Firefly” theme tune, the songs for the musical “Buffy” episode “Once More With Feeling,” the songs for “Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog” (and for the sing-along DVD commentary to that blog)—the man even wrote a song for the direct-to-video “The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride.” He ought to be really, really resent-able. But he just isn't. He's great. He's adorable. Even when he's writing not-great little indie movies like “In Your Eyes” (our review is here), we love him. Even when he also writes a merry-sad indie-pop track for the soundtrack, just to show off. »
