Coming Soon On DVD From Fox Searchlight

Fox Searchlight films are hitting the DVD shelves in a torrent over the coming months, and we wanted to make sure you knew when to look out for them!

 

DAY WATCH - Now Available

Featuring the cinematic vision of cutting-edge Director/Writer Timur Bekmambetov, DAY WATCH (DNEVNOI DOZOR) is the second installment of a trilogy based on the best-selling sci-fi novels of Sergei Lukyanenko entitled "Night Watch," "Day Watch" and "Dusk Watch." A dazzling mix of state-of-the-art visual effects, amazing action sequences, and nail-biting horror, when NIGHT WATCH (NOCHNOI DOZOR) was released in its native Russia in July 2004, it became an instant smash hit breaking all film gross records in post-Soviet history. Set in contemporary Moscow, DAY WATCH (DNEVNOI DOZOR) revolves around the conflict and balance maintained between the forces of light and darkness -- the result of a medieval truce between the opposing sides.

DAY WATCH is now available on DVD. Order it via Fox Home Entertainment, or visit its official film page.

 

 

THE NAMESAKE - November 27th

Mira Nair's THE NAMESAKE is the story of the Ganguli family, whose move from Calcutta to New York evokes a lifelong balancing act: to meld to a new world without forgetting the old. Though parents Ashoke and Ashima (Irfan Khan, Tabu) long for the family and culture that enveloped them in India, they take great pride in the opportunities their sacrifices have afforded their children. Paradoxically, their son Gogol (Kal Penn) is torn between finding his own unique identity without losing his heritage. Even Gogol's name represents the family's journey into the unknown.

An unwanted pregnancy changes the course of events giving her an unexpected confidence via letters to her unborn baby.

SUNSHINE - January 8th

The Web site "DVD Town" wrote an interesting article about the coming debut of Danny Boyle's SUNSHINE on January 8th; the sci-fi extravaganza will be the first "Picture In Picture" Blu-ray disc -- meaning the viewer will be able to watch one video on top of of another on their TV screen, such as a commentary from one of the filmmakers. Kinda cool! You can read the entire article here.

Fifty years from now, the sun is dying, and mankind is dying with it. Our last hope: a spaceship and a crew of eight men and women. They carry a device which will breathe new life into the star. But deep into their voyage, out of radio contact with Earth, their mission is starting to unravel. There is an accident, a fatal mistake, and a distress beacon from a spaceship that disappeared seven years earlier. Soon the crew is fighting for their lives...
