THE POOP SCOOP: Modern Classics & TV Terrors

😺THE TRUMAN SHOW Celebrates 25th Anniversary with a new 4K Ultra HD Two-Disc Set from Paramount.
Director Peter Weir’s cinematic triumph THE TRUMAN SHOW celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and Paramount Home Entertainment is marking the occasion by releasing a newly remastered version of the beloved classic on 4K Ultra HD for the first time ever on July 4, 2023. Starring the incomparable Jim Carrey, THE TRUMAN SHOW was a box office and critical success, earning over $264 million worldwide and a 95% fresh critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  Nominated for three Academy Awards, THE TRUMAN SHOW is both wildly entertaining and a complex exploration of media consumption, surveillance, and reality TV that was ahead of its time and even more relevant today. THE TRUMAN SHOW has been fully remastered using scans of the original negative, with the new 4K version approved by Weir.  The film is presented with Dolby Vision high dynamic range (HDR) and Dolby Atmos audio for a truly immersive experience.  The 4K Ultra HD two-disc set includes the film on both 4K Ultra HD Disc and on Blu-ray, along with access to a Digital copy of the film and legacy bonus content.

Ghostface is more terrifying than ever on a rampage in the Big Apple in the “flawless” and “razor-sharp game-changer” (Meagan Navarro, Bloody Disgusting) SCREAM VI, arriving for purchase on Digital April 25, 2023 from Paramount Home Entertainment. No one is safe and everyone is a suspect in the smash hit thriller from Paramount Pictures and Spyglass Media Group that has earned more than $167 million worldwide.  The four survivors from the most recent Woodsboro Ghostface killings have moved to New York City for a fresh start. Just as they begin to feel a sense of normalcy, they receive that infamous call. Ghostface is more brutal and relentless than ever and will stop at nothing to hunt them down. Fans who buy the film on Digital will have access to over an hour of killer bonus content, including behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast and crew discussing the wildly popular franchise and upping the ante in this latest installment.

🙀ONE FALSE MOVE on 4K and Blu-ray July 25 from Criterion Collection.
A small-town police chief (Bill Paxton) concealing an explosive secret. A pair of ruthless drug dealers (coscreenwriter Billy Bob Thornton and Michael Beach) who leave a bloody trail in their wake as they make their way from Los Angeles to Arkansas. And an enigmatic woman (Cynda Williams) caught in the middle. The way these desperate lives converge becomes a masterclass in slow-burn tension thanks to the nuanced direction of Carl Franklin, whose haunting film travels a crooked road across America’s most fraught divisions—urban and rural, Black and white—while imbuing noir conventions with a wrenching emotional depth. In addition to a 4K restoration, this release includes a Blu-ray copy of the film and several vintage bonus features.
