LOS ANGELES, CA – Relive unforgettable comedies and intense thrillers when Big, There’s Something About Mary, Force 10 From Navarone, Lions For Lambs, To Live And Die In L.A, Predator 2 and The Siege make their compelling high-definition debut on Blu-ray Disc (BD) from Twentieth Century Fox and MGM and Home Entertainment.
Big, the Academy Award-nominated fantasy-comedy about a boy who makes a wish "to be big" is now larger than ever in high definition as it debuts on Blu-ray Disc May 5 from
Fox Home Entertainment. At a carnival, young Josh Baskin (Tom Hanks; Cast Away) wishes he was big – only to awake the next morning and discover he is! With the help of his best friend Billy (Jared Rushton; Honey, I Shrunk the Kids), Josh lands a job at a toy company. But the more he experiences being an adult, the more Josh longs for the simple joys of childhood.
Directed by the Farrelly Brothers, (Dumb & Dumber) There’s Something About Mary stars Ben Stiller (Night at the Museum), Cameron Diaz (In Her Shoes) and Matt Dillon (Crash), in a hilarious love triangle debuting on Blu-ray Disc May 5 from Fox Home Entertainment. The romantic comedy and gross-out film made over $369 million worldwide and went on to become one of the most successful R-rated comedy films in box office history. Ted (Stiller) is still in love with his high school prom date, Mary (Diaz), even though it's been years after the humiliating incident that cut their date short. Ted hires Pat, a private detective (Dillon) to track her down, but Pat ends up falling in love with her too, starting a comedic battle for Mary's heart.
Robert Shaw (The Deep, Jaws) and Harrison Ford (The Fugitive, Air Force One) star as fearless World War II commandos in Force 10 From Navarone, the thrilling follow-up to The Guns of Navarone debuting on Blu-ray Disc May 12 from MGM Home Entertainment. Directed by Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger) and adapted to the screen by Robin Chapman (screenplay) and Academy Award-winner Carl Foreman (screen story), it's a large-scale action-adventure saga with "remarkable special effects" (Los Angeles Times), a powerful cast and "one hair-breadth escape after another" (Newsweek). In the darkest days of World War II, Hitler's armies are storming through Europe, annihilating all opposition in their path. But U.S. Colonel Barnsby (Ford) plots to strike a crippling blow to the brutal Nazi forces. To succeed, he'll need the help of the most skilled and lethal soldiers in the world: the Force 10 squad, fresh from its triumphant mission at Navarone.
Academy Award-winning director Robert Redford (Quiz Show) presents a “significant and entertaining, thought-provoking” (Janos Gereben, San Francisco Examiner) thriller that examines the news and politics of a nation divided when Lions For Lambs arrives on Blu-ray Disc May 12 from MGM Home Entertainment. Featuring “on-the-mark performances” (Larry King) from Redford, Meryl Streep (The Devil Wears Prada) and Tom Cruise (Valkyrie) and an “insightful and provocative” (Carla Meyer, Sacramento Bee) script by newcomer Matthew Michael Carnahan (The Kingdom), Lions For Lambs is “a wake-up call” (Pete Hammond, Maxim) that illustrates the impact that Americans have on each other and the world.
William L. Petersen (Manhunter, “CSI”) and Oscar® nominee Willem Dafoe (The Boondock Saints, Spider-Man) face off in a deadly game of cat and mouse in To Live And Die In L.A, a “riveting” (The New York Times) action-thriller from Academy Award-winning director William Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist). Full of flash, style and grit, this raw tale of corruption and revenge features one of the most harrowing car chases ever captured on film and a shockingly explosive ending. Federal Agent Richard Chance (Petersen) has a score to settle, and he’s through playing by the rules. Whether that means blackmailing a beautiful parolee, disobeying direct orders or hurtling the wrong way down a crowded freeway, he vows to take down a murderous counterfeiter (Dafoe) by any means necessary. But as the stakes grow higher, will Chance’s obsession with vengeance ultimately destroy him?
The electrifying action sequel Predator 2 unleashes the deadly invisible alien in another jungle – the urban jungle of Los Angeles. Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon, The Color Purple) stars as a lieutenant who mistakenly concludes that mangled bodies found by the police are the work of feuding gangs. Instead, he finds himself confronting a savage alien who has come from a distant world to hunt humans for sport. Gary Busey (Point Break, The Firm) co-stars in this suspense-packed, high-tech thriller.
A crowded city bus blows up in Brooklyn and a campaign of terror begins to make its bloody mark on the streets of New York in The Siege. Oscar®winner Denzel Washington (Malcolm X,
Training Day) and Emmy winner Bruce Willis (Die Hard, Pulp Fiction) star as FBI special agent Anthony “Hub” Hubbard and U.S. Army General William Devereaux, two men who must find out who’s responsible and put an end to the destruction. Together, they face explosive danger at every turn when they team up to wage an all-out war against a ruthless band of terrorists.
