In a few weeks the sci-fi-ish drama-ish series Colony will be released on DVD over there in that America. To mark the occasion KM UK is going to publish a series of exclusive-to-the-site (because I made them) full HD (that’s 1920×1080) screencaps in one of our Summer Of HD update series.
When was the last time we had a proper Summer Of HD update? I’d like to say “I can’t remember” but I can because I just looked it up and my short term memory is not that bad!
2015… I mean 2014 was when it was.
Based on the image above I think that when Hollywood attempts a re-make of the upcoming Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (due out in the UK on Friday, 1st July) they need look no further than Kathryn as a younger, even more attractive Patsy.
A search on IMDb suggests that a remake of the TV series was already attempted in the US but it never made it past the pilot stage. Coincidently it starred a Kathryn, Kathryn Hahn of Crossing Jordan fame, but in the Edina (aka Eddie) role as played by Jennifer Saunders. America gets the new film towards the end of July by the way.
The cast list of Ab Fab: T’Movie is quite something, with all walks of British celebrity-dom covered, which means that many of the cameos will go over the heads of those outside the UK. Gwendoline Christie (Game Of Thrones), Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect), and Jon Hamm (Mad Men) will be recognisable to many others around the world though. But, most importantly, the amazing Jane Horrocks reprises her role as the utterly barmy (it’s a good thing, trust me) Bubble.
First up in our short run are 55 new Full HD (1080p) screencaps of Kathryn in the fourth episode of Colony. Find them in the Gallery.
It’s been a day.
A whole 24 hours, almost to the minute, has gone by since I last posted about Roommate Wanted (aka 2Br/1Ba). That very post is here.
Having stumbled across the news that Roommate Wanted was recently released in Germany on DVD and Blu-ray formats, I also found out that in about one month’s time those on the other side of the world will get it too.
Yes, our cousins in Australia will be on the receiving end of both disc formats on the 20th of July this year.
Based on the ‘M’ logo on the front of the cover (image on the right) it looks like the film has been classified as being suitable for those aged 15 and over. Apparently there is some leeway for appropriate adults to be slightly inappropriate and allow younger ones access, but they probably shouldn’t. Always read any advisory notes provided by your regional authority.
Australia is not part of Europe, and is seriously considering no longer having anything to do with the UK, but managed to horn in on Eurovision recently because it uses the same TV standards and therefore is in the same DVD/Blu-ray region codes.
It’s been a year.
A whole 12 months, almost to the day, has gone by since I last posted about Roommate Wanted (aka 2Br/1Ba). That very post, my review of the movie, is here.
I have just discovered that Roommate Wanted has been released in Germany for home viewing. Not only is it available on DVD, as it was in the USA, but also on the hi-def Blu-ray format too.
It looks like it started shipping at the beginning of this month (June 2016). Despite what the image on the right suggests I believe the disc is rated with as acceptable for 16 year olds. Check your local suppliers for details though.
As things stand at the time of writing the UK is still part of Europe and the whole continent, and Australasia, are part of the same region for DVDs and Blu-rays so cross border purchasing is viable.
Kathryn has a small role in the comedy drama about two room-mates (played by Alexa Vega and Spencer Grammer) who get into a more than a little disagreement about something.
The TV Series Finale website is asking the question that those of us on this website already know the answer to.
Who’s the Sexiest Female Cop or Detective on TV?
We’re surprised it even needed to ask.
I give you exhibits A, B and C, your honour…
And that’s just 3 images from the Cold Case promos for season 2, 4 and 6 respectively. I don’t even need to pull out the BIG GUNS! There’s lots of other great examples in the KM UK Gallery.
In the piece they refer to Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: SVU), Gillian Anderson (The X-Files), and a real blast from the past Heather Locklear from (remember this?) T.J. Hooker. It was a nice touch to list these lovely women but they let slip the real truth behind the article by finally casually dropping in Kathryn.
Feel free to set the good people of TV Series Finale straight HERE.
New news has been a bit hard to come-by of late so in another ‘remainder reminder’ the horror-western Bone Tomahawk is out on on DVD and Blu-ray formats in the UK from tomorrow (13th June).
I’m not sure who successful Bone Tomahawk was at the cinemas. It mainly got a limited release and was also made available via VOD services around the same time, which will have had an impact. This makes box-office figures sparse and of limited use.
The long time span between the first UK screening at the BFI London Film Festival in October of last year, the general release being delayed until February of this year, and then a further 4 months for the home disc release, can’t have helped matters.
The general consensus appears to be that Bone Tomahawk is a very good film, especially for such a low budget production from a first time director (also the writer) S. Craig Zahler. The stellar cast must have helped in getting the idea to the screen.
No doubt it will quickly become a cult classic now it is available on disc.
Here are links those links again to the Amazon UK DVD and Blu-ray pages.
There is still over a week to go if you want to win a copy of Bone Tomahawk in the format of your choice in a competition on the Scream horror magazine website. See HERE for details.
