  Earwig and the Witch on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  You can do magic
  Elysian Film Group Distribution the Studio Ghibli feature film animation EARWIG AND THE WITCH, directed by Goro Miyazaki (FROM UP ON POPPY HILL, TALES FROM EARTHSEA), will be available to own in the UK and Ireland from 27th September. The film is based on the children’s novel of the same name by Diana Wynne Jones (HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE) and marks Studio Ghibli’s first entirely 3DCG animated feature. Produced by Studio Ghibli co-founder Toshio Suzuki with planning from Miyazaki's father, the legendary Hayao Miyazaki (SPIRITED AWAY, MY NEIGHBOUR TOTORO), EARWIG AND THE WITCH is the third solo feature from Goro Miyazaki which tells the story of a courageous young orphan forced to live with a selfish witch.

The English language dub version of the film features the voices of Richard E. Grant (Gosford Park, Can You Ever Forgive Me?), Kacey Musgraves ("Golden Hour", "Same Trailer Different Park") and Dan Stevens (Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, FX's Legion), and introducing Taylor Paige Henderson as "Earwig". In addition to her debut voice acting role as "Earwig’s Mother," six-time Grammy Award winner Kacey Musgraves will also record the English language version of the film's theme song, "Don't Disturb Me."

Growing up in an orphanage in the British countryside, Earwig has no idea that her mother had magical powers. Her life changes dramatically when a strange couple takes her in, and she is forced to live with a selfish witch. As the headstrong young girl sets out to uncover the secrets of her new guardians, she discovers a world of spells and potions, and a mysterious song that may be the key to finding the family she has always wanted.

Young readers can also discover the magical story of EARWIG AND THE WITCH by Diana Wynne Jones (Howl's Moving Castle, Charmed Life). The book has been re-printed to tie in with the UK release of the film and it is available now in paperback via Harper Collins. Order at the link above.

  Dead & Beautiful [read more]
  Better to be one than the other
  Today, Shudder, AMC Networks' premium streaming service for horror, thrillers and the supernatural, has announced that psychological thriller Dead & Beautiful will premiere on Thursday, November 4 in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. The film, which is written and directed by David Verbeek, is also set to play at Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX on Saturday, September 25.

In Dead & Beautiful, five rich, spoiled Asian twenty-somethings (Gijs Blom, Aviis Zhong, Yen Tsao, Philip Juan, Anechka Marchenko) are suffering from upper class ennui, unsure how to spend their days when so little is expected from them. In search of excitement, the five friends form the "Circle," a group where they take turns designing a unique, extravagant experience for the others. But things go wrong when the privileged urbanites awaken after a night out, to find they have developed vampire fangs and an unquenchable thirst for flesh, blood, and adventure at any price.

Dead & Beautiful is produced by Erik Glijnis (Pleasure) and Leontine Petit (The Lobster) of Lemming Film, in co-production with House on Fire International, Nukleus Film, and Woods of Light Film. Indie Sales is handling international sales. The film is written and directed by David Verbeek (R U There). Try the trailer at the link above.

  Wild Indian
  The troublesome past
  Vertigo Releasing has announced that WILD INDIAN will receive its UK premiere at the 65th BFI London Film Festival next month, in the 'Thrill' section, and will be released in UK and Irish cinemas and on digital platforms on 29th October.

The acclaimed thriller is writer/director Lyle Mitchell Corbine Jr.'s feature debut, and has led him to be described by The Hollywood Reporter as "an impressive cinematic talent". The film grapples with the complexities of guilt, class and indigenous American identity, whilst still delivering "a ruthlessly efficient, stripped-down neo-noir" (Flickering Myth).

Leading an impressive cast that includes Jesse Eisenberg (Vivarium, The Social Network) and Kate Bosworth (Force of Nature), Michael Greyeyes (True Detective, I Know This Much Is True) is chilling as the protagonist, Makwa. WILD INDIAN was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and RogerEbert.com has stated that the film "should be regarded as a major work, not just within the context of its director's career, but cinema as a whole".

Makwa and Ted-O, two Anishinaabe men, are inextricably bound together after covering up the savage murder of a schoolmate. After years of separation following wildly divergent paths, they must finally confront how their traumatic secret has irrevocably shaped their lives.
