Anchor Bay to Release 6 TCFHE Catalog Titles in August

Posted June 20, 2013 06:16 PM by Webmaster

Anchor Bay EntertainmentAnchor Bay is releasing six bargain-priced Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment catalog titles on August 6th and 13th: Freaked, Lucas, The Pick-Up Artist, Silver Streak, Stuck on You and Wing Commander.

Each title is available for pre-order. Technical specifications and special features have yet to be detailed.

    Freaked (Streets August 6th)

    Synopsis: A company that produces a toxic chemical tries to improve its image via popular spokesperson, Ricky Coogan (Alex Winter). Ricky travels to South America to get a first-hand look at the chemical's effects and finds himself at a mutant freak farm. Elijah C. Skuggs (Randy Quaid), who runs the farm, is only too happy to have new subjects on which to try his freak machine. The very chemical that Ricky is supposed to promote is the one responsible for creating the great variety of freaks. Co-directors Tom Stern and Alex Winter's 1993 cult comedy also stars Brooke Shields, Michael Stoyanov, William Sadler, Mr. T, Megan Ward, Alex Zuckerman, Ray Baker, Morgan Fairchild, John Hawkes, Sam Raimi, Keanu Reeves and Bobcat Goldthwait.

    Lucas (Streets August 6th)

    Synopsis: At 14 years old, young Lucas Bly (Corey Haim) is a bit too small for his age, and far too smart for his high school classmates. He's more interested in symphonies and science fairs than food fights and football. But when Lucas finds himself falling in love with a cheerleader (Kerri Green), who only has eyes for the school's top jock, Cappie Roew (Charlie Sheen), he grows desperate for her attention. Joining the football team, Lucas risks his pride and neck at the big game. Director David Seltzer's classic also stars Courtney Thorne-Smith, Tom Hodges and Jeremy Piven, and features the screen debut of Winona Ryder.

    The Pick-Up Artist (Streets August 6th)

    Synopsis: Jack Jericho (Robert Downey Jr.) is a master in the art of meeting women, but the master has just met his match in the beautiful Randy Jensen (Molly Ringwald). Complicating matters is her alcoholic father (Dennis Hopper), who's in deep debt to the mob, and two gangsters (Harvey Keitel and Danny Aiello), who escort Randy to Atlantic City. In this hilarious, romantic comedy from writer/director James Toback, a smug, compulsive womanizer who won't take no for an answer meets the woman of his dreams, only to find her impervious to his charm.

    Silver Streak (Streets August 6th)

    Synopsis: In director Arthur Hiller's wild comedy adventure, rail passenger George Caldwell (Gene Wilder) finds that a romantic escapade with a sultry secretary (Jill Clayburgh) puts him in the middle of a Hitchcockian murder plot. Leaping on and off the train, in and out of roomettes, he escapes, only to team up with thief Grover T. Muldoon (Richard Pryor), who helps George get to Kansas City where they reboard the train together. Silver Streak also stars Patrick McGoohan, Ned Beatty, Clifton James, Ray Walston and Scatman Crothers.

    Stuck on You (Streets August 6th)

    Synopsis: Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear make a terrific team (Newsweek) in this delightfully demented comedy from the inseparable Farrelly Brothers. Conjoin the fun with Bob (Damon) and Walt (Kinnear) Tenor, two brothers who share a passion for life... and a liver. Their unique bond leads to wild complications when Walt decides to pursue his dreams of becoming an actor and persuades his reluctant sibling to go along for the ride. Loaded with over-the-top humor and outrageous antics, Stuck On You also stars Eva Mendes, Wen Yann Shih, Pat Crawford Brown and Dane Cook, and features a number of celebrity cameos.

    Wing Commander (Streets August 13th)

    Synopsis: Loosely based on the videogame series of the same name, Wing Commander opens in the year 2654 and introduces Terran Confederation fighter pilots Christopher Blair (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) and Todd Marshall (Matthew Lillard), a young hotshot who joins an interstellar war to fight the evil Kilrathi armada, a fleet of alien warriors hellbent on destroying the universe. Director Chris Roberts' sci-fi actioner also stars Saffron Burrows, Tchéky Karyo, Jürgen Prochnow and David Warner.

I'm stoked for FREAKED since I sold off my Special Edition DVD a while back. Hopefully we'll get the same features.

I'm definitely down for "Freaked," "Wing Commander" and "Lucas" once these go down in price a little bit. Never got around to picking up any of them on DVD.

Holy cow! Haven't watched "Freaked" in a long time! That film cracked me up....I think I still have it on laser disc!

Love the description of Wing Commander's plot. Alien warriors "hell bent on destroying the universe". Now THAT is some kind of power, the universe is pretty damn big last I checked, and what would be left for them after they destroy it?

Anyway, Lucas and Silver Streak for me, maybe the Pick Up Artist if it goes el-cheapo.

JRob. This is AB. They will probably re-release the exact same DVD while making the BD featureless

Silver Streak, Lucas, Freaked, and Stuck on You will be mine!!

Wing Commander is a big maybe. And I've only seen The Pick-Up Artist once, and I didn't too much care for it, I'm sorry to say...

We're about to live in a world where Stuck On You exists on blu ray but La Dolce Vita doesn't.

I might would pick up "The Pick-Up Artist" just because, in addition to leads Molly Ringwald and Robert Downey,Jr., it features Harvey Keitel as a gangster, Dennis Hopper as a drunken gambling addict, and Danny Aiello as a tough Italian pizzeria owner. It is also written and directed by James Toback, who previously had directed Keitel in "Fingers"(1978) and "Exposed"(1983). Where are blu rays of THOSE movies, by the way? Anyway, this film is a guilty pleasure, I suppose, but I like the supporting cast (I'm a huge Keitel and Hopper fan), the crime subplot, and the oldies soundtrack. I might pick it up on blu if it isn't too expensive.

Silver Streak!! My fave Wilder/Pryor movie. Come on Steve!! Hey my man, what it look like?

The smaller roles are all brilliant too, especially Ned Beatty. Yeah, super stoked to see this one hitting Blu-ray, I was not expecting this one at all although I think it should be much more popular than it is and it's highly under-rated.

Already have Freaked on pre-order! I just hope most of the extras get ported over.

All this and no Phantasm? What the hell are they waiting for? If they're never going to release it, they should sell the rights to Scream Factory. At least they'll do the film justice and release it in a stellar edition. Sick and tired of waiting for Anchor Bay to get off their asses and release quality catalog titles. Phantasm is the very last title I need to upgrade to BD for my wishlist to be complete. There were rumors they were going to release it back in the fall of 2009 for its 30th anniversary but that came and went. Sigh.

I'm with cferreiro on this entirely, although clearly Fox feel sufficiently guilty to palm these efforts off on Anchor Bay.

This is a company which in the UK thinks it imperative to release Jingle All the Way and Home Alone 2, but not The Grapes of Wrath or Laura.

Wake me up when someone does the Blu ray honours for Giulietta degli Spiriti.......

SILVER STREAK! The rest of these titles can drip down my leg after I eat too many clams with bourbon.

They allowed Twilight Time to release Rains of Ranchipur & The Egyptian, both bare bones & way overpriced. They're releasing Bird of Paradise (Debra Paget version) on DVD MOD. But they'll allow Anchor Bay to legit release less in demand titles?? Dumb. Hey at least they won't be priced at $29 to $39 bucks, a regular thing for Twilight Time.

Glad to hear Freaked is coming out, but since these are being released by Anchor Bay, I'm afraid they'll be barebones like the last batch (Airheads, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, etc)

Might grab Wing Commander for the awesome opening sequence and the great score alone. The rest of the movie qualifies as a guilty pleasure, big time. Which is sad considering it could have been so much more. I mean, it's not like the creator of the game wrote and directed the movie...oh wait

Wing Commander is hilarious. I only went to see the Star Wars trailer but was so happy that I stayed so I didn't miss the big mean kitty aliens. That made me laugh out loud. As for the other releases there are some great gems in there, especially Lucas and the classic SILVER STREAK! I was just thinking about that movie the other day. It is great fun.

These have already been up for pre-order on Amazon for a while. But I'm definitely in for the vastly underrated The Pick-Up Artist, especially at that price.

Lucas directed by David Selzer... wonder if that's the same David Selzer who wrote the novelization of The Omen. Pretty varied resume if so.
