‘The Lion King’: Disney Targets Nostalgic Adults With High-End Merchandise

‘The Lion King’: Disney Targets Nostalgic Adults With High-End Merchandise
Does Nala wear lipstick? Probably not, but “The Lion King” fans can celebrate the release of the live-action remake with a new line of makeup that’s themed to Disney’s latest redo. For about $40, the Can’t Wait to Be Queen eyeshadow palette by Luminess Cosmetics includes shades named after the Nala, Mufasa and the film’s setting (“Pride Rock”).

Merchandising is a key component of any Disney release, though the studio saw a decrease in consumer products sales in 2018 following a lack of overall interest in movie merchandise for 2017 films “Star Wars” and “Cars.” But Karina Masolova, executive editor of the Licensing Letter, thinks revenue from merchandising is likely to bounce back in 2019 due to recent box-office titans such as “Toy Story 4,” “Aladdin” and “Avengers: Endgame.”

And then there is “The Lion King,” which rules the licensing world in addition to the jungle. The 1994 Disney animated film,

'Texas Chainsaw' Prequel Mystery Asks: Who Is Leatherface?

'Texas Chainsaw' Prequel Mystery Asks: Who Is Leatherface?
While it was reported earlier in the week that EastEnders star Sam Strike is starring as a teenage Leatherface in the Texas Chainsaw prequel, that may not be entirely true. While he is confirmed to be playing a killer in this latest entry in the horror franchise, the movie will actually be a mystery that revolves around 3 teenage psychopaths. And the big question at the end of the movie will be: Who is Leatherface?

Relative unknown James Bloor will play the second teenage psychopath in a role that is described exactly like Sam Strike's character. Both will play budding young maniacs who have an affinity for the chainsaw. And 'saw', as any true The Texas Chainsaw Massacre fan knows, is family! At this point, it is unknown if different actors will play Leatherface at different stages of his life, or if it will all take place in one time period.

Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel: A Tribute to Angela Bettis

"So many pretty parts and no pretty wholes." That basically sums up the motivation behind the title character of Lucky McKee's 2002 breakout film, May. And there was no bigger reason that the film and director found success than the unforgettable star of the film, and the newest Doctor Gash's Tip of the Scalpel honoree, Angela Bettis.

Although she had done sporadic film and television work before starring as the lead character in May (including an outstanding supporting role in Girl, Interrupted, the horror film Bless the Child with Kim Basinger and Jimmy Smits, and the little known thriller People are Dead with Jennifer Carpenter and Kristen Bell), this was the film (premiering at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival) that launched Bettis onto the mainstream horror scene. And since her trumpeted arrival, there has been no turning back for this brilliant actress and horror mainstay.

May was a stunning film in several ways.

Scar

  • Fright Meter
 Year:  2007

Director:  Jed Weintrob

Cast:  Angela Bettis, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Devon Graye, Ben Cotton, Christopher Titus

Joan Burrows (two time Fright Meter Award Winner Angela Bettis) returns to her hometown where, years earlier, she was the sole survivor of a sadistic, brutal serial killer's rampage in which she witnessed her best friend tortured and ultimately killed.  It's her niece's graduation; however, the joyous atmosphere of the small town quickly shifts as teenagers begin showing up murdered in the same manner in which the serial killer that Joan thought she killed all those years earlier killed his victims.  Could it really be him, or is someone recreating the carnage with the hopes of succeeding in what his/her inspiration failed to do before: murder Joan?

Scar really boils down to being part Saw/Hostel and part name any teenage slasher flick from the 80's.  However, despite its obvious influences, Scar ultimately

Hilary Swank's "Resident" Evil, the Second Flight of "Black Swan," and More New DVDs

  • IFC
"The Resident" (2011)

Directed by Antti Jokinen

Released by Image Entertainment

This actually isn't the first time Hilary Swank has seen one of her films go direct to DVD after the films "Red Dust" and "Birds of America" suffered the same fate, but surely there was more riding on this horror film from the resurgent Hammer Films about a recently separated doctor who learns her Brooklyn loft isn't quite as wonderful as she thought it would be. "Secretary" screenwriter Erin Cressida Wilson co-wrote this film, which co-stars Christopher Lee, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Lee Pace.

"The Mikado" (1939)

Directed by Victor Schertzinger

Released by Criterion Collection

"Topsy-Turvy" (1999)

Directed by Mike Leigh

Released by Criterion Collection

Sold separately, Criterion is making no secret of trying to appeal to Gilbert and Sullivan fanatics with special editions of "The Mikado," a straight-up adaptation of the musical duo's most famous opera, and Mike Leigh's "Topsy-Turvy,

DVD and Blu-Ray Releases: March 29th - Scream if You Are a Black Swan

It doesn't matter if you're a black swan or a white swan; we're sure you're going to want to bring home the dementedness that is Natalie Portman's Oscar-winning performance in Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan.

The film also stars Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel, Barbara Hershey and Winona Ryder. If you live in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco or Chicago, you can participate in the Black Swan Experience on April 2nd.

Since Scream 4 is coming out in theaters shortly, it is only appropriate that the Scream trilogy is being re-released in glorious Blu-ray. Bring home the franchise created by Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson that gave the horror genre a booster shot back in the mid 1990s. A trio from the original cast -- Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette -- will be gracing the big screens with a whole new cast soon enough.

'Scar 3D' Review

'Scar 3D' Review
There are precisely two reasons that a thorough horror fan would still be waiting around for the four-year-old Canadian indie flick Scar: 1. It was presented (and therefore "shot") in 3D -- and that's not something you often see in a low-budget Canadian horror movie. 2. It has Angela Bettis in the lead role, whom we know and love from Toolbox Murders, the Carrie remake, The "Sick Girl" episode of 'Masters of Horror', lots of TV work, and (of course) Lucky Mckee's May -- which I'd still maintain is one of the best horror films of the past ten years. Were it not for those two points, Scar would barely rate above a disinterested blip on the radar of the average horror fan. And...

We've got a couple clips from this week's Dexter for you.  Dexter brings Lumen to his apartment (which won't help his "she's just a tenant" story) to plan the next phase in their revenge.  Lumen wants to go straight for Jordan, but Dexter wants to wait.  Not a good move Dex; look at what happened last time you waited.  Instead, Dexter thinks they should go speak to the Woman in the Vial - Emily (played by Angela Bettis from May and Scar). In the second clip, Quinn and Deb confront Jordan Chase in their hunt for Cole.  Jordan's assistance is waning, and he is getting defensive.
