Three More Titles Coming Up From Olive Films in February

Posted December 7, 2012 07:09 PM by Webmaster

Olive FilmsIndependent distributors Olive Films have added up three more titles to their February slate: Robert Altman's That Cold Day In The Park (1969), starring Sandy Dennis, Michael Burns and Susanne Benton, Charles Shyer's Irreconcilable Differences (1984), starring Ryan O'Neal, Shelley Long and Drew Barrymore, and Paul Michael Glaser's The Running Man (1987), starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Conchita Alonso.

Exact technical specs, region coding status, and supplemental features to be included on these releases are yet to be revealed.

That Cold Day In The Park

A sexually repressed, emotionally disturbed woman becomes obsessed with a young man she meets by chance. He plays along, as a lark. Their situation becomes increasingly darker as her obsession fades into psychosis. Realizing, finally, what he's dealing with, the young man seeks to extricate himself from the "relationship" only to find violence and tragedy awaiting.

Irreconcilable Differences

As the story opens, nine-year-old Casey (Barrymore) is taking her parents to court - suing them for divorce! Through flashbacks studded with moments of high comedy and tinged with sadness, we learn Casey's story: How her parents (O'Neal and Long) met, married and wrote the script that earned them millions. How success led to divorce - and left Casey on the sidelines. And finally, how Casey decided to strike a blow to her own freedom, dragging her protesting parents to court! It's a scathing satire, screwball comedy and surprisingly touching drama, as Casey and her folks come to grips with Irreconcilable Differences.

The Running Man

The year is 2019. Television is now ruling people's lives. The most popular "audience participation" game show is "The Running Man" - where convicts can win pardons instead of parting gifts by defeating murderous henchmen known as stalkers. The stalkers haven't had much of a challenge lately...until Ben Richards (Schwarzenegger) comes along.

That Cold Day in the Park = Long-awaited gem from the weird side of late Robert Altman's endlessly fascinating production. Yes!

Irreconcilable Differences is a good film.

The Running Man already has a BR. Think this will be an improvement?

Think the Running Man was an early disk, so likely to be an improvement. It's back, and only in a rerun.

"supplemental features to be included on these releases are yet to be revealed."

Olive Films BDs always have zero supplements anyway, not even subtitles.

Even the lousy Liongates' DVD of "Irreconcilable Differences" has subtitles.

Pretty good cover for the running man. Or at least it's an improvement over the last one.
Doubt there will be any special features but hopefully we get a new and better transfer. I've been waiting ages to add this film to my collection. If there's no special features, I'll just buy the dvd for the features and make a combo pack.

The old Running Man cover wasn't bad. In fact, I'm surprised at how sci-fi this one doesn't look. At first glance I'd mistake it for Red Heat or Commando or something (US Flag aside).

I was really impressed with the BR of Running Man. I can't imagine this would be much better, but I'm prepared to be amazed (and I like this new cover art!)

The original Lionsgate BD of The Running Man is currently OOP I believe. Considering Olive's track record, you can forget about the supplements and two commentary tracks being ported over. While I'm curious if it's been remastered, I remain skeptical.

Fantastic news regarding Altman's That Cold Day in the Park!

EricJ, Lionsgate's Running Man BD was not an early release, it's from 2010!

That Cold Day sounds VERY interesting, this might be a blind buy or a rent first...

I'll probably get the Running Man (since the Lionsgate disc is kinda hard for me to find, plus it may be a slight improvement).

I would much rather that someone release "The Ballad of the Running Man" starring Laurence Harvey, a vastly more interesting film... Great news on "Irreconcilable Differences", long over due for a BD release and one of the great comedies of the 80s as well as one of the best films about movie making...

It is an odd cover choice for The Running Man. I guarantee that picture quality will be improved with it being an Olive Release. I have to wonder if the soundtrack will be the 7.1 or just a 5.1. I'm almost fearful it may be just 2.0.

"The Running Man" is a turd, and ripe for a remake, one that is true to the King, er Bachman, story.

I just preordered all three. I never got around to buying Lionsgate's version of The Running Man; I'm hoping Olive's version is at least remastered, but we'll see. (I doubt it will include many if any on-disc extras.)

As a fan of Robert Altman, and after reading its plot summary, I'm quite interested in That Cold Day in the Park. It sounds a bit as if its in a similar subgenre with Fatal Attraction.

Irreconcilable Differences also looks quite good. Looking forward to these.

@candystalker
The running man was remade. They just renamed it "the hunger games". ;P

I'll have to pick up The Running Man when it comes out. Somehow I missed picking up the previous release.

I saw the Running Man a year or so ago. While it's a good story and great commentary on TV culture, the movie itself is horribly dated.
