Official Trailer Unveiled For Shout Factory's "The Ticket"



The official trailer has been unveiled for Shout Factory film, "The Ticket". The highly acclaimed and much anticipated suspense drama is scheduled for release April 7th. "The Ticket" is directed by Ido Fluk and written by Fluk and Sharon Mashihi.

 "The Ticket" was produced by Lawrence Inglee, Oren Moverman, William L. Walton, Matthew Malek and A Blackbird Production in association with Rush River Entertainment, Cave Pictures and Initiate Productions. The film stars Dan Stevens (Beauty and the Beast, FX series Legion), Malin Akerman (Billions, Watchmen), Kerry Bishé (Halt and Catch Fire, Argo) and Oliver Platt (Chicago Med, Fargo). 

After James (Dan Stevens), a blind man, inexplicably regains his vision, he becomes possessed by a drive to make a better life for himself. However, his new improvements—a nicer home, a higher paying job, tailored suits, luxury car—leave little room for the people who were part of his old, simpler life: his plain wife (Malin Akerman) and close friend Bob (Oliver Platt). As his relationships buckle under the strain of his snowballing ambition, it becomes uncertain if James can ever return from darkness. Director Ido Fluk paints a visual world that reflects the mesmerizing effect that newfound sight has on James; the vibrant backgrounds and the sun-drenched rooms are captivating in their beauty. His dreamy and subjective style combines with an astute sense of character to craft a tale of desire, perception, and what it really means to be blind.

DVD, Digital Release Details For "Bloodrunners"


Press Release:
Speakeasy Pictures and IMPULSE-FX have announced the March 7th Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and Digital HD release of the period action thriller Bloodrunners. The latest feature from writer-director Dan Lantz (Blind Love, Felix Melman), Bloodrunners centers on a turf war between a crooked cop and a power-hungry vampire (Ice-T, “Law and Order: SVU”) over a small town soaked in illegal hooch during the height of Prohibition.
Bloodrunners will be available to rent or own globally on iTunes and Steam and across the US and Canada on iTunes, Steam, Google Play, Xbox, Playstation and various cable platforms, including Comcast, Dish, Rogers and Shaw. The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, featuring 1080p video, 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound and bonus features will be available on Amazon and the Bloodrunners official site.
Bloodrunners combines the action of crime dramas with the otherworldly gore of vampire legends. Michael McFadden (The Networker) headlines as a cop living large on looking the other way as booze flows through his protectorate. When he discovers that Chesterfield, the owner of the latest speakeasy has a thirst for warm blood as well as cold hard cash, he must find a way to save his town before it dries up.
By 1933, Prohibition has proven a booming enterprise, where average citizens break the law, hide in the shadows and operate at night. The new world order has even lined the pockets of corrupt cops like Jack Malone (McFadden). He collects a ‘luxury tax’ from every bootlegger and scofflaw in the small town he has sworn to protect. While shaking down the newest speakeasy in the local underground, Jack and his men uncover a clan of vampires hell bent on taking over the town. Now Chesterfield (Ice-T), an ancient vampire, and his horde must hide their secret at any cost. The bloody result leaves several bodies and innocent townsfolk taken as lambs to await the slaughter. With nowhere else to turn, Jack joins forces with a busboy and a crazy preacher to save the town and make a final stand against Chesterfield and his vampires.


The Blu-ray/DVD (SRP $14.99) and iTunes releases of Bloodrunners will include a feature-length commentary with director Dan Lantz, deleted and extended scenes, a gag reel and trailers.

Details on Will Byer’s visions of the Upside Down:


“He seems to be seeing images from the Upside Down—the question is whether they’re real or not,” says co-creator Matt Duffer. “So it seems like he’s having some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder.”


Chief of Police Jim Hopper tries to keep the events of the first season a secret:
“It kind of falls on Hopper to be the voice of authority to say, ‘This did happen and this didn’t happen,’” David Harbour said. “He’s struggling with the compromise that takes him to, having to lie and cover things 
What about Eleven:
“I want people to know that she’s back and she’s a major part of the season and not know how or why,” says Duffer. “We do get into her story and backstory. We learn about where she came from and how she came into the world and the program that resulted in her.”





Stranger Things Season 2 will star Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Natalia Dyer, Cara Buono, Charlie Heaton, Matthew Modine.  Sadie Sink (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Dacre Montgomery (the Red Ranger in the upcoming Power Rangers movie), Brett Gelman (Blunt TalkThe Other Guys), newcomer Linnea Berthelsen, and ’80s icons Sean Astin (The Goonies) and Paul Reiser (Aliens).
