The Mighty Quinn

Two-time Academy Award-winner Denzel Washington (Best Actor, Flight; Best Supporting Actor, Glory) headlines the entertaining crime thriller The Mighty Quinn.

Under bright skies and sandy beaches, paradise hides some ugly truths in The Mighty Quinn. Based on the A.H.Z. Carr novel Finding Maubee, Denzel Washington (Flight) brings his charismatic star power to the role of Xavier Quinn, the sheriff of a small Caribbean island caught up in a murder mystery involving his best friend. Petty crook Maubee (Robert Townsend, Hollywood Shuffle) is on the run for the alleged murder of millionaire resort owner Donald Pater (Bobby Ghisays, Club Paradise). Estranged from his wife Lola (Sheryl Lee Ralph, TV’s Moesha) and an absentee father to his son, Quinn is about to find his life getting a bit more complicated as the mystery of the millionaire’s murder slowly comes into focus in the witty, entertaining mystery-thriller, The Mighty Quinn.

Directed by Carl Schenkel (Knight Moves) from the Hampton Fancher (Blade Runner) screenplay, The Mighty Quinn co-stars James Fox (Patriot Games), Mimi Rogers (Street Smart), M. Emmett Walsh (Blood Simple), Keye Luke (Gremlins), Alex Colon (Red Scorpion), and Esther Rolle (TV’s Good Times).

STREET DATE: SEPTEMBER 22.

The Woods

Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Patricia Clarkson (Best Supporting Actress, Pieces of April) headlines a cast of talented young performers alongside horror film stalwart Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead) in the thriller The Woods.

Gothic chills abound in the thriller The Woods directed by Lucky McKee (May) from a screenplay written by David Ross (The Babysitters). Amidst the splendor of rural New England sits Falburn Academy, a boarding school for young, impressionable and in some cases, troubled girls. Isolated from the outside world, Falburn sits near the woods – a sinister cluster of trees that appears to act as a protective wall. Heather Fasulo (Agnes Brucker, The Aviator) is the school’s newest student. After setting fire to a forest, rebellious Heather is sent to Falburn to provide her with a sense of stability. Heather’s increasing nightmares prove to be more than homesickness when she discovers that the woods hold a chilling and terrifying secret.

The Woods co-stars Academy Award-nominee Patricia Clarkson (Pieces of April) as Falburn’s dean, Ms. Traverse; Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead) as Heather’s father; Lauren Birkell (The Babysitters) as friend and schoolmate Marcy; and Rachel Nichols (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) as the bullying student, Samantha Wise.

Mannequin

Burgeoning artist Jonathan Switcher (Andrew McCarthy, Pretty In Pink) is reunited with the love of his life (well, his artistic life anyway) when he discovers the beautifully crafted mannequin he created years earlier is now prominently displayed in the window of the Prince & Company department store. Much to his surprise, and to the delight of the viewer, Jonathan will discover that his art project has more than superficial human traits when it quite literally springs to life in the form of “Emmy” (Kim Catrall, Sex And The City).

This inspired comedy, a nod to such romantic fantasy films as One Touch of Venus, is directed and co-written by Michael Gottlieb (A Kid In King Arthur’s Court) with Edward Rugoff (Double Take). The film co-stars James Spader (Pretty In Pink) as Switcher’s work rival; Meshach Taylor (TV’s Designing Women) as his outrageous and flamboyant co-worker; Estelle Getty (TV’s Golden Girls) as the owner of Prince & Company; and G.W. Bailey (Police Academy, TV’s Major Crimes) as the store’s security chief.

STREET DATE: SEPTEMBER 22.

Mannequin Two: On The Move

A romantic confection, Mannequin Two On The Move is a comic look at reincarnation, lost love and fabulous window displays. This sequel to the popular Mannequin finds the outrageous Hollywood Montrose (Meshach Taylor, TV’s Designing Women) promoted to Prince & Company’s display department. Joining Hollywood on the job is new assistant, Jason Williamson (William Ragsdale, Fright Night) who in a past life was the prince of the Hauptmann-Koenig kingdom.

Prince & Company will display a mannequin known as the Enchanted Peasant Girl in celebration of the kingdom. And Jason has a nagging feeling that he’s seen this mannequin somewhere before. Removing a necklace from the mannequin reveals that the Enchanted Peasant Girl is in reality Jessie (Kristy Swanson, Buffy The Vampire Slayer), the love of his previous life who was put under a curse by an evil sorcerer. Their rekindled romance is not without it’s challenges when the evil sorcerer reappears in the reincarnated form of Count Gunther Spretzle (Terry Kiser, Weekend At Bernie’s) who has plans of his own for the cursed Jessie.

Stuart Raffill (Mac and Me) directs from a screenplay by Edward Rugoff, David Isaacs, Ken Levine and Betsy Israel based on the characters created by Rugoff and Michael Gottlieb.

STREET DATE: SEPTEMBER 22.

Only the best of the best tech programmers will make their way into NURV, a cutting edge high tech corporation headed by the charismatic Gary Winston (Tim Robbins, The Shawshank Redemption) and Milo Hoffman (Ryan Phillippe, Crash) is one of the chosen few.

The seemingly innocuous handling of data turns sinister when Hoffman’s friend, Teddy (Yee Jee Tso, 50/50) is murdered. Milo will soon discover the deaths of other programmers who have close ties to the company. What secret is NURV harboring … and would they kill to keep it hidden? Is there a link to the deaths or is it simply paranoia? Who can Milo trust when that trust may come at a deadly price?

Antitrust, directed by Peter Howitt (Sliding Doors) from a screenplay by Howard Franklin (The Name of The Rose), features a cast that includes Rachael Leigh Cook (Get Carter) as Lisa, Milo’s friend and co-worker; Claire Forlani, (Meet Joe Black) as Alice, his girlfriend; with supporting players Richard Roundtree (Shaft); Tygh Runyan (Snakes On A Plane) and Ned Bellamy (Django Unchained).

STREET DATE: SEPTEMBER 22.

Black Caesar

Fred Williamson held the reigns as the prominent male lead in several of the blaxploitation era’s most popular films including Hammer, Legend of Nigger Charley, Three The Hard Way and Hell Up In Harlem.

The brutal assault at the hands of a racist cop will inform the life of Tommy Gibbs (Fred Williamson, Hammer), who will grow up to become the reigning head of Harlem’s black mafia in Black Caesar.

Establishing a mob empire that challenges the New York mafia’s stronghold on the city, Tommy will prove himself a worthy opponent and a natural born enemy. His volatile romance with chanteuse Helen (Gloria Hendry, Live and Let Die) will set in motion a series of deadly events that the self-proclaimed criminal kingpin, the Black Caesar, may not escape.

Larry Cohen (Hell Up In Harlem), working from his own script, directs the blaxploitation film Black Caesar that co-stars Art Lund (Bucktown), Val Avery (Donnie Brasco) and D’Urville Martin (Sheba, Baby), featuring a score by James Brown.

Leading up to Hitler’s suicide, the film recounts the final days of strategizing and infighting among the Fuhrer’s closest advisers, as well as his relationship with Eva Braun (Doris Kunstmann, Funny Games) within the confines of the infamous underground bunker. Alec Guinness’ performance offers the viewer a rare look inside the mind of a mad man – manic, irrational, contemplative and eventually defeated, as the Third Reich crumbled before his eyes. Director De Concini’s Hitler: The Last Ten Days, scripted by Gerhardt Bolt, Ennio De Concini, Maria Pia Fusco, Ivan Moffat and Wolfgang Reinhardt, features an international cast that includes Simon Ward (The Three Musketeers), Adolfo Celi (Thunderball), Joss Ackland (The Hunt For Red October), Philip Stone (The Shining), Diane Cilento (Tom Jones) and Sheila Gish (Mansfield Park).

With Vic’s friend and top enforcer Mickey Holliday (Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic Park) by his side what could go wrong? Plenty. Add to the mix a romantic roundelay involving Mickey and Vic’s ex-girlfriend, Grace (Diane Lane, Streets of Fire) and her sister, Rita (Ellen Barkin, Diner) and the stage is set for excitement in a film chock full of mob film tropes, star cameos and pitch black humor.

Mad Dog Time, written and directed by Larry Bishop (Hell Ride), features appearances by Gabriel Byrne, Burt Reynolds, Gregory Hines, Kyle MacLachlan, Henry Silva, Michael J. Pollard, Billy Idol, Paul Anka, Rob Reiner, Billy Drago, Joey Bishop and Richard Pryor.

He’s out to avenge the murder of his parents by the psychotic Mafioso Dominic Hoffo (Rip Torn, Men In Black). Slaughter’s thirst for vengeance will not be sated, even after a sympathetic mobster’s girlfriend, Ann (Stella Stevens, The Poseidon Adventure) is presented to him as a peace offering.

Gunplay, fist fights and all-out action lies around every corner in Slaughter, co-starring Cameron Mitchell (The Klansman) and Don Gordon (The Mack) and written by Mark Hanna (Gunslinger) and Don Williams (Blood, Black and White).

Blumenthal

“He died laughing” becomes the very definition of irony when renowned playwright Harold Blumenthal (Brian Cox) literally drops dead while laughing at one of his own jokes during a performance of his new play. With those around him thrown into a tailspin while coming to grips with Blumenthal’s untimely passing, along with some familial infighting, the stage is set for an intelligent, witty and altogether dysfunctional comedy experience.

This inspired comedy is written & directed and co-stars Seth Fisher who also co-stars (TV’s The Good Wife) and co-stars Mark Blum (TV’s Fringe), Laila Robins (TV’s Homeland), Lisa Masters (It’s Complicated) and Fred Melamed (A Serious Man).

STREET DATE: SEPTEMBER 22.

Along with his fellow hostages, best friend Joe (Jack Noseworthy, Event Horizon) and Wendy (Reese Witherspoon, Wild), Cliff becomes a media darling daring to stare down the hostage takers with three words.

S.F.W. is a shrewd and entertaining exploration of societal complacency, the glare of the media spotlight and the exploitation of notoriety for personal gain.

S.F.W. directed by Jefery Levy from a screenplay co-written by Danny Rubin (Groundhog Day) and Levy co-stars Jake Busey (Starship Troopers), Joey Lauren Adams (Bio-Dome) and Pamela Gidley (Thrashin’).

STREET DATE: SEPTEMBER 22.

Fatal Instinct

A laugh out loud parody of classic crime dramas and noirs from Double Indemnity and Basic Instinct to Fatal Attraction, director Carl Reiner’s (The Jerk) Fatal Instinct has its tongue planted firmly in cheek.

STREET DATE: SEPTEMBER 22.

Madhouse

Five time Emmy-winner John Larroquette (TV’s Night Court and The Practice) along with Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Kirstie Alley (TV’s Cheers) pool their comic talents in the farcical Madhouse.

The appropriately titled Madhouse stars Kirstie Alley (Look Who’s Talking) and John Larroquette (Blind Date) as Mark and Jessie Bannister, whose California home is turned upside down when visiting relatives, pesky neighbors and an assortment of unwanted guests take up residence.

How bad could a visit by relatives really be? As it turns out for the Bannisters, pretty bad. Following a spill on the way to the airport, two-month pregnant relative, Bernice (Jessica Lundy, Bright Lights, Big City) is instructed by her doctor not to move until she delivers her baby.

STREET DATE: SEPTEMBER 22.

Prick Up Your Ears

Gary Oldman would take home the London Critics Circle Award (Actor of the Year) for his performance in Prick Up Your Ears, alongside scribe Alan Bennett who was awarded the Screenwriter of the Year. Prick Up Your Ears features sterling performances by Vanessa Redgrave (Academy Award-winner Best Supporting Actress for Julia), Gary Oldman (Academy Award-nominee for Best Actor in Tinker Tailor Solider Spy) and is directed by Stephen Frears, the Academy Award-nominated director of The Grifters and The Queen.

In his research on the celebrated playwright Joe Orton (Gary Oldman, The Dark Knight), biographer John Lahr’s (Wallace Shawn, The Princess Bride) meetings with Orton’s literary agent, Peggy Ramsay (Vanessa Redgrave, Howard’s End) will frame the story of the life of an artist. Told through flashbacks, the film reveals the relationship between Orton and his mentor (and subsequently, his lover) Kenneth Halliwell (Alfred Molina, The Da Vinci Code). At first blush the older Halliwell is the educator and Orton is his willing student. Those roles would be reversed with Orton thrust into the spotlight when his play, Entertaining Mr. Sloan, becomes a monstrous success. Orton’s sudden fame and career trajectory would place Halliwell in his shadow, resulting in tragic consequences. The talents of Redgrave, Oldman and Molina are a virtual master class on screen acting. Guiding them through their paces via a wonderful screenplay by Alan Bennett (The History Boys), based on the book by John Lahr, director Stephen Frears (The Queen) weaves a compelling, caustic, often humorous and never less than entertaining tale of fleeting fame.
