NOVEMBER 5, 2009--FLASH UPDATE: THIS JUST IN FROM LARRY BLAMIRE:
SHOUT! ACQUIRES LOST SKELETON RETURNS AGAIN AND DARK AND STORMY NIGHT
We are happy and pleased and also excited and pleased to announce that Shout! Factory has just acquired North American DVD and digital rights to THE LOST SKELETON RETURNS AGAIN and DARK AND STORMY NIGHT. Both Shout! and Bantam Street are thrilled about the teaming and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.
I've been a big fan of Shout! since they started releasing box sets of SCTV some years back, and their sensibility is right up our alley (if we have an alley--I think we do--somewhere). As you can see, they release some very cool and eclectic stuff (I have recently been enjoying HIYA KIDS, their compilation of vintage 50s TV kids shows).
THE LOST SKELETON RETURNS AGAIN and DARK AND STORMY NIGHT DVDs will be launched at ComiCon in July, 2010. Both will be loaded with extras in typical Shout! fashion.
But wait, there's more.
Our own Mike Schlesinger is masterminding a theatrical release of not only those two films, but also TRAIL OF THE SCREAMING FOREHEAD (which he's dubbed "The Thrillogy"). This will be in March 2010, in support of the DVD release, and the films will piggyback around the country to select cities. And, yes, they're family friendly, so bring the kids.
From the moment we met with Shout! we had a mutual feeling that this was an ideal partnership, and we couldn't be happier about it--particularly in the current tough market.
