Default Mill Creek: Sony Pictures Releases Discussion


Quote:
Mill Creek Entertainment Licenses 250 SPHE Titles for U.S. and Canadian DVD and Blu-ray Distribution

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, April 23, 2012 – Mill Creek Entertainment, a leading home entertainment distribution company has just inked a home video distribution deal with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment (SPHE) covering US and Canadian territories. Under the licensing agreement Mill Creek Entertainment will distribute 250 films from the legendary SPHE catalog via a wide variety of DVD and Blu-ray compilations and collections to Mill Creek’s extensive network of traditional and non-traditional retail partners.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



: Announced / Released Titles (Alphabetical List) : * Superior individual Sony BD release available.

: Double Features (See above for Alphabetical Title List) : * Superior individual Sony BD release available.

: Cover Art :

[Show spoiler]



: Audio Issues (Contact Mill Creek for Replacement) :
  • Hollow Man - Reported by Fanboyz. Hollow Man "has the center channel track spread across the 3 front channels." - (Originally released as a Walmart Exclusive. Reportedly corrected for wide release. Contact Mill Creek for replacement.)
  • Hostel - Original release recalled due to defective audio track. Contact Mill Creek for replacement.
  • Hudson Hawk - Reported by DMRI2006. Hudson Hawk "is most definitely mono. It comes up as 2-channel DTS MA but it's flat and is all coming out of the center channel. There's no stereo separation whatsoever I could detect at any point. Just FYI... " (Originally released as a Walmart Exclusive. Reportedly corrected for wide release. Contact Mill Creek for replacement.)

: Missing Extras : (Listing omissions from R1/A Sony DVD/BD releases. Will add others as desired.)

Titles not added below until confirmed but, until otherwise, it isn't a bad idea to presume all Mill Creek releases have omitted any previously available extras, from an earlier Sony Blu-ray or DVD release, save for possibly trailers.

: Sources and research sites for extras info :


: Unannounced Titles Confirmed Licensed by Mill Creek :

All unannounced titles listed as confirmed licensed by Mill Creek below are done so due to their site/sell sheets listing the titles in DVD multi-pack releases.

Exactly.

There's only ONE movie from that list (The Freshman) that I want. Yuck.

And let me guess: they're probably going to put all 4 on one disc?

I would be interested in:

Chase, The
D.E.B.S
Fine Mess, A
Relentless
Vice Versa

But probably only if they are single releases (unless they want to do multipacks with only the movies I want )

Not really too many "must haves" on that list. Bummer.

Possible interest in The Squid and the Whale and guilty pleasure Hudson Hawk. Already have The Replacement Killers and Hero.

And I have no interest in 4-pack nonsense.

It's not even the films themselves, as actually I might have been interested in several just in this first wave if released solo (or even a "decent" looking double feature I would deal with). It's just that the 4-pack pretty much confirms these as being hot-garbage.

Hero is 1992 Stephen Frears release (worthwhile).

And the BD releases seem like double features unlike the DVD releases.

If you click on the OP "spoiler" tag, some of these are being dumped straight into 4-packs. (I bolded them for you).

On DVD they are 4-packs. Not BD. Those sell sheets are to confirm those titles have been licensed by Mill Creek. The actual releases are the 4-pack DVD releases.

Note the announced section. So far, those appear to be double features.

He obviously either work for MC or some retailer,and thus, he has access to the sheets.If you type http://www.millcreekent.com/media/ or http://www.millcreekent.com/media/sell_sheets// you will see this message : "Forbidden.You don't have permission to access /media/sell_sheets/ on this server"...Whoever he is,thx for sharing this cool news with us.

The Last Detail
Baby the Rain Must Fall
The Freshman
Birdy
The Chase
Off the Map
and Ship of Fools for me.

Overall,disappointing list.

Oh, I gotcha.

So really those sell-sheets are just a hint at "possible titles", not necessarily immediately relevant to their blu-ray plans. Thank goodness.

I don't mind multi packs *(2 movies 1 disc at most), but packaging two or more completely unrelated movies kills me, my shelves would puke those sets up...

I'm curious about the sell sheet for The Fan (1996). What are the other 3 movies that it would be packed with (on the dvd)? I could go for a double feature blu-ray of The Fan/Relentless.
