DOUBLE DRAGON: 90s Cult Classic To Receive Collector’s Blu-ray Release In January 2019!

Double Dragon roars to life with amazing special effects, spectacular action sequences, and a knock-about sense of humor. It’s the year 2007, and what remains of LA is now ”New Angeles”, a city ravaged by earthquakes, tidal waves and vicious gangs. The evil tycoon Koga Shuko (Robert PatrickTerminator 2: Judgment Day) is obsessed with finding the two halves of a talisman known as the ”Double Dragon”, which will give him awesome mystical powers. Two teenaged brothers, Jimmy (Mark DacascosJohn Wick 3) and Billy Lee (Scott WolfParty of Five) find themselves in possession of the amulet’s missing half, thrusting them into the adventure of their lives. With the help of Maria (Alyssa MilanoCharmed) and her vigilante group ”The Power Corps”, Jimmy and Billy must summon all of their courage, resourcefulness and martial-arts skills to stop the villain’s malevolent plan.

Eric D. Wilkinson, who oversees the MVD Rewind Collection shares his enthusiasm for this release. “Double Dragon was arguably one of my favorite projects for the Rewind Collection. This release marks the first time Double Dragon will be available on Blu-ray and in HD in North America!

FILTER Releases Video New Single “Take Me To Heaven”

filter-2016-1-large

Multi-Platinum rock band FILTER has just released a new video for their latest single, “Take Me To Heaven,” from their upcoming album. Crazy Eyes is due for release April 8, 2016 via Wind-up Records. The band will soon hit the road on the “Make America Hate Again” tour. Check out the single and tour dates below!

Reconstruction requires deconstruction. The institutions must be razed in order to clear space for the future to flourish. You tear down the old and build up the new. Filter founder, singer, guitarist, and producer Richard Patrick knows this dance well. It’s what established the group as a multiplatinum industrial alternative luminary, and it catalyzed their seventh full-length album, Crazy Eyes [Wind-up Records].

Following the arrival of their brash and urgent new single, “Take Me To Heaven” and album announcement via Billboard, Filter keep fans satisfied with news of a forthcoming US tour, “Make America Hate Again.” Featuring Orgy, Vampires Everywhere and Death Valley High, the tour sees frontman Richard Patrick bring Filter’s electric live show back to audiences across the country.

“Filter is the mind,” he exclaims. “It’s your interpretation or my interpretation. Our thing is to look at people’s unexplainable behavior and assess it, using sound. It’s a way to approximate the insanity of the human condition. The reason this record is so fucking heavy and strange is it’s exactly the opposite of what’s popular. It’s not pretty. It’s not cute. It’s real.”

Season 2 of ‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series’ Debuts August 25th On El Rey Network

Season 2 of ‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series’ Debuts August 25th On El Rey Network

from-dusk-til-dawn-2015-trejo

Last year, FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES premiered as El Rey Network/Miramax’s first scripted drama and drew critical acclaim for the reimagining of Rodriguez’s cult classic film From Dusk Till Dawn. On August 25th at (9:00PM EST), the sophomore season of this fan-favorite, supernatural crime saga returns with 10 new episodes that expand the universe of the story from Mexico to the edgy, tricked-out Texas of Rodriguez, who also directs the first episode. And on August 26, Entertainment One will begin to release each episode for purchase on all leading digital platforms.

'From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series'

‘From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series’

Season One of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES centered on bank robber Seth Gecko (D.J. Cotrona, Dear John, G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and his violent, unpredictable brother Richard “Richie” Gecko (Zane Holtz, Holes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower), who were on the run to Mexico when they encountered former pastor Jacob Fuller (Robert Patrick) and his family, who were taken hostage. Using the family RV to cross the border, chaos ensued when the group detoured to the Titty Twister, a strip club populated by culebras, snake-like ancient creatures who survive by drinking human blood. They were forced to fight until dawn in order to get out alive.

In Season Two, the show travels between Mexico and the edgy, tricked-out Texas of Robert Rodriguez. It also deepens and complicates the core relationships between the characters, while adding new faces and dynamics. Our characters are all living in very separate worlds – Santánico Pandemonium (Eiza González, “True Love) and Richie are outside Houston, doing their best Bonnie and Clyde; Seth and Kate (Madison Davenport, “Shameless,” Noah) are scraping by South of the Border; and Freddie Gonzalez (Jesse Garcia, Quinceanera,”Sons of Anarchy”) is protecting his wife and young daughter in  the suburbs. Carolos Madrigal (Wilmer Valderrama, “That ’70s Show,” To Whom it May Concern) and Scott Fuller (Brandon Soo-Hoo, Tropic Thunder, Ender’s Game, Incredible Crew) emerge from the Titty Twister, changed men. They will all come together once again – this time facing off against an even bigger threat.

This season, the cast is joined by Danny Trejo (Machete, Machete Kills), who appeared in the original movie as Razor Charlie and Esai Morales (“Criminal Minds,” “NYPD Blue”), currently a series regular on “The Brink.” Trejo plays The Regulator, a horrifying agent of evil who is summoned to perform a deadly errand and Morales will appear in the role of Lord Amancio Malvado, a figure of terrifying cruelty and power who has a complicated and obsessive relationship with Santánico. They will also be joined by Briana Evigan(Step Up 2), who does a turn as Sonja, an American expatriate working as a tattoo artist in a Mexican mercado. Jake Busey also resumes his guest starring role as Professor Aiden “Sex Machine” Tanner and Demi Lovato makes a guest starring appearance

Aside from Rodriguez, directors who will be behind the camera this season include Edurado Sánchez (The Blair Witch Project), Alejandro Bruges (Juan of the Dead), Joe Menendez (Ladrón que roba a ladrón) and Dwight Little (Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers).


FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES is a Miramax production in association with Rodriguez International Pictures, FactoryMade Ventures, and Sugarcane Entertainment.  Executive producers are Robert Rodriguez, showrunner Carlos Coto,  Diego Gutierrez and FactoryMade Ventures and El Rey Network co-founders John Fogelman and Cristina Patwa and Miramax’s Zanne Devine and Daniel Pipski.
