LIMITED-EDITION 5TH ANNIVERSARY STEELBOOKS
It's hard to believe at times, but our brand is now five years old...and what a ride it has been! Our gratitude and thanks go out to everyone of you who has supported our releases and continue to do so.
Naturally, we wanted to celebrate this milestone with something cool that would be true to our retro roots and would make a big splash. As you already know, we've been very successful with our John Carpenter films so we looked to some of our older releases of his for inspiration. We then remembered the question we posed sometime years ago to you about your thoughts on Steelbook® packaging, and the response was extremely strong. So, we married the two ideas to come up with the following special offer:
- Carpenter’s classic ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, THE FOG and THEY LIVE are being reissued in a limited-edition Steelbook® packaging. Only 10,000 of each are being produced and once they're gone, they're gone! Official Release Date for all three is 8/1/17, but will ship two weeks early if you order directly from us.
- The cohesive and conceptual artwork you see pictured on all three come to us conceived by artist Nathaniel Marsh (Carrie, The Thing deluxe piece). If you order directly from our site, your packaging will also include a 28.5” x 16.5”rolled lithograph of the illustration, while supplies last. The litho will not be available through any other retailer.
- Steelbooks will be shrinkwrapped. The Blu-rays included inside will have the same content (but with different disc label art) that is currently available in their respective Collector Edition releases.
- To our overseas fans, we regret to inform that we only have US & Canadian territory rights for these films so will be unable to ship internationally from our site unfortunately.

PLANO, TEXAS. (May 1, 2017) – Hong Kong’s cheeky, lovable and best-known film star Jackie Chan (Rush Hour franchise) reunites with Director Ding Sheng (Little Big Soldier) for a third time with RAILROAD TIGERS, debuting on digital May 9 and on Blu-ray™/DVD Combo Pack and DVD June 20 from Well Go USA Entertainment. With his patented blend of martial arts action and comedy, Chan plays a railroad worker in 1941 China who leads a team of freedom fighters against the Japanese in order to get food for the poor. The action-packed RAILROAD TIGERS also stars Huang Zitao (Edge of Innocence), Jackie Chan’s son Jaycee Chan (1911), Wang Kai (The Golden Era), Hiroyuki Ikeuchi (Ip Man), Ping Sang (Saving Mr. Wu), Alan Ng (Young Bruce Lee) and Darren Wang (Our Times).

Unarmed and outnumbered, they must fight back against an entire army using only their wits, in a series of dazzling set pieces and action scenes rivaling anything seen on the big screen.

Yes its real, from PPW Toys
Horrifying meets cute in this mash-up as Mr. Potato Head pays tribute one of the most iconic and terrifying film series in history: Alien. As the titular character, “The Alien”, this amazing collectible toy stands 6″ tall and includes all the exoskeletal details of the nightmare creature, including the classic “two mouths” and spiked tail!
So like a lot of people I always have movie ideas running through my head. I'm sure most of you do as well, because we are movie fans and that's what we do. We try to imagine what part 2, or part 3 of a film we like will be about. We dream cast films when they are announced. Well I have been doing just that and I came up with a good one.
See Universal is rebooting all the classic monsters in present time. I'm ok with that concept. Universal also has my favorite franchise, and their big cash cow, Fast and Furious getting ready for part 9. What if we could combine those two things?
How do you ask, well fear not I have the basic outline already done. See Tom Cruise has the Mummy so we use Fast 9 as the starting point for Dracula.
So Vin, Letty and the rest of the family are enjoying doing nothing. In fact after saving the world from nuclear war in part 8 all Dom wants to do is watch his son grow up. Letty however is growing restless and craves the adventure of the way things were. She begins street racing again just for the adrenaline high when she meets a mysterious man who she is drawn to. Side Note I'm leaning towards Nic Cage I'm the role. Anyway the two race against one another, one thing leads to another, and suddenly bam, he bites her.
Now Dom, who has been wondering where she keeps going at night has followed her and he runs over. The mysterious man turns to Dom to kill him but he sees the cross around his neck and runs off.
Dom gets his crew and they take her to the hospital but they are stopped by Mr Nobody and the Rock who take them back to there base and inform them that the man who bit Letty is Count Dracula, and that Dom actually comes from a long line of vampire hunters and his cross has a special magic to it. Now Dom and his family have 48hrs to stop Dracula before Letty is turned into a vampire.
Think of the possibilities. Tej can equip the cars with guns that shoot stakes. You can have vampires chasing them from the air while they take them down in their cars. Vin battles Dracula while The Rock and Statham battle his 2 main guards. The possibilities are endless.
Let's face facts Fast and Furious can't have much left in the tank, and the Monster reboot haven't been exactly well received so far combine the 2 and you have non stop action.
The after credit scene could show Frankenstein being awoken. Think of that Fast 10 The Rock vs Frankenstein. Who's with me on this.
