Upcoming Shout Factory Titles (Updated)

Posted May 13, 2013 01:34 PM by Webmaster

Shout FactoryIndependent distributors Shout Factory have dated three catalog titles which will appear on Blu-ray later this year: L.Q. Jones' A Boy and His Dog (1975), Dennis Hopper's The Hot Spot (1990), and Chen Kaige's Killing Me Softly. The three films will be available for purchase in August.

A Boy and His Dog a.k.a Apocalypse 2024

World War IV has ravaged Earth, and its survivors must battle for food, shelter and companionship in a post-atomic wasteland. This classic sci-fi tale follows the exploits of a young man, Vic (Don Johnson), and his telepathic dog, Blood, as they struggle through the barren wilderness. In the midst of their meager existence, foraging for scraps of food and battling ruthless gangs, Vic and Blood encounter a young woman who lures them into a surreal city deep beneath the earth's surface. Based on the award-winning novella by acclaimed science-fiction author Harlan Ellison, A Boy and His Dog is a dark, twisted and sometimes comical trip through a post-apocalyptic reality in the not-too-distant future. Starring Don Johnson, Susanne Benton, and Jason Robards.

Updated

Special Features:
  • Newly Restored High-Definiton Transfer
  • In Conversation: Harlan Ellison And L.Q. Jones (2013)
  • Commentary By Director L.Q. Jones, Director of Photography John Arthur Morrill and critic Charles Champlin
  • Vintage Radio Spots
The Hot Spot

Harry Maddox (Johnson) is a handsome drifter who is not above larceny to make ends meet. After staging a daring daylight robbery at a local bank, he receives an alibi from an unexpected ally: Dolly Harshaw (Madsen), a sexy and mysterious local woman who has her own plans for him. But when Harry falls for another beautiful woman (Connelly), he incurs Dolly's wrath and finds himself caught in a maze of jealousy, betrayal and murder in which escape is impossible...and danger is the ultimate aphrodisiac. Starring Don Johnson, Virginia Madsen, and Jennifer Connelly.

Killing Me Softly

Too much of a good thing...can be deadly. When Alice (Graham), an American living in London, meets Adam (Fiennes), a handsome adventurer, she's lured out of her safe, mundane life to pursue an affair that brings her to the heights of excitement and ecstasy. But when Adam's mysterious and violent past begins to surface, Alice investigates...and learns that Adam's past-and her future-may both point to murder. Starring Heather Graham, Joseph Fiennes, and Natascha McElhone.

Good news for Don Johnson fans. Now maybe shout can get a gold of Dead Bang that would be very cool. They should call the double feature set the mega celeb nudity collection. That is not a complaint : )

The Hot Spot is a good movie, Killing Me Softly not so much. Anyway, when you have (Spoiler) very generous nudity by Jennifer Connelly and Heather Graham (not to mention Virginia Madsen) at their prime, this disc should be bundled with baby oil, tissues and be a present for the 15th birthday of every living boy.

Wow, I was just thinking about " A Boy and His Dog" and how you never see that movie anywhere. I wish they would release "The Hot Spot" alone. "Killing Me Softly" is such a crappy movie.

I love "The Hot Spot". It's incredibly stylish, sexy, and atmospheric with excellent performances. "Killing Me Softly" is an alright movie. It's not great by any stretch of the imagination, but it is entertaining and Heather Graham is really hot in it.

Is it just me, or are Scream Factory's announcements ALWAYS more exciting than current releases?
These guys rule!
'A Boy and his Dog' is a bit overrated IMHO, but worth an upgrade from my DVD I'll bet. Now I'll have to go back and read my old Cinefantastique issue on the film.
'Hot Spot' is just that! From the glory days when Jennifer Connolly had a bit of meat on her bones. Never got around to seeing "Killing Me Softly", though (ok...just 'certain' scenes).
Another pair of easy buys!

I've only seen A Boy and His Dog when it was really low-quality streaming on Netflix. Looking forward to the BD. And no, stevejcody, it isn't just you: Shout's stuff has become a lot more exciting than most of the other BD announcements these days. Of course, many of film's most popular titles have already been released, so that's part of it. The other part is major studios are really slow to roll out their catalog titles but Shout! has been aggressive lately, and I hope people support them.

I would have preferred individual discs for The Hot Spot and Killing Me Softly. I thus far avoided Double Feature discs. This one I have to get.

"Hot Spot" was pretty good! I need it for the Jennifer Connelly nudity. She had some really nice tits back then.
The photography was excellent. Should make a nice looking transfer, unless it gets botched.

Pretty much every time I read a release announcement from Shout Factory or play one of their releases I find myself fervently wishing that the purchasers of Miramax had gone with them for the releases they classified as their lower teir titles instead of with Echo Bridge. Sigh. At least other studios and rights holders have the brains and taste to know quality work when they see it. Will be adding these titles to my collection as with so many SF releases.

Hopefully the BD of A Boy and His Dog will look better than the non-anamorphic DVD of long ago.
