JUST IN TIME FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

WARNER HOME VIDEO TO RELEASE THREE

NEW TO BLU-RAY DISC™

ROMANTIC FILM FAVORITES




“YOU’VE GOT MAIL”

“PLEASANTVILLE”

“10”


Available February 1


Burbank, Calif. September 27, 2010 – On February 1, 2011, Warner Home Video will make sure cupids everywhere have their choice of inspiration with a charming trio of new-to-Blu-ray™ romantic films featuring their favorite stars. Just in time for Valentine’s Day gift giving, the slate of screen hits includes, “You’ve Got Mail,” “Pleasantville” and “10,” available as single titles and each selling for $19.98 SRP. Orders are due December 28, 2010.


Featuring the romantic duo from another audience favorite “Sleepless in Seattle,” “You’ve Got Mail” stars Oscar® winner Tom Hanks (“Toy Story” franchise, “Angels & Demons,” “Forrest Gump,” “Cast Away”) and Golden Globe® nominee for Best Actress in this film, Meg Ryan (“The Women,” “When Harry Met Sally,” “City of Angels”). The cast also includes fan favorites, Greg Kinnear (“Little Miss Sunshine,” “As Good as it Gets”) and Parker Posey (“Superman Returns”). Directed by three-time Oscar® nominee Nora Ephron (“Julie & Julia,” “When Harry Met Sally,” “Sleepless in Seattle”), this Blu-ray debut will also include a bonus DVD featuring “The Shop Around the Corner,” the classic film that inspired “You’ve Got Mail,” starring James Stewart.


Also available on Blu-ray for the first time, “Pleasantville” is the stunningly beautiful film that created a wonderful, imaginative world in black and white and in color – and the remarkable special effects shine vividly on Blu-ray. Nominated for three Academy Awards® and recipient of the Boston Society of Film Critics Award (1998), the star cast of acclaimed actors includes Oscar® winner and female audience favorite Reese Witherspoon (“How Do You Know,” “Monsters vs. Aliens,” “Four Christmases,” “Legally Blonde,” “Walk the Line,” “Sweet Home Alabama”), Tobey Maguire (“The Details,” “Spider-Man” franchise, “Brothers,” “Seabiscuit”) and Oscar® nominees Joan Allen and William H. Macy.


Written and directed by Blake Edwards, “10” is considered to be one of his richest and most realized works. An iconic and sexy movie that still resonates today, the film was scored by Oscar® winning composer Henry Mancini and stars the funny and talented Golden Globe® winner Dudley Moore (“Arthur,” “Arthur 2”) and Oscar® winner Julie Andrews (“The Princess Diaries,” franchise, “Tooth Fairy,” “The Sound of Music”).

“Pleasantville”

In the black-and-white ’50s sitcom realm of “Pleasantville,” mom always has a yummy meatloaf in the oven, the home team never loses and romance is a shy peck on the cheek. Until now. Because modern, real-life teens David (Tobey Maguire) and Jennifer (Reese Witherspoon) are mysteriously zapped into that TV world, and with them come ideas and passions that turn the town’s cozy perfection into something more challenging and colorful. From Gary Ross (“Big,” “Seabiscuit”) comes an imaginative fantasy that maintains its humor even as it reveals its own true colors about embracing life in all its messiness and unpredictability. Don’t touch that dial. Stay tuned to life in “Pleasantville.”

·         Commentary by Writer/Director Gary Ross

“10”

Blake Edwards’ “10,” a spicy comedy of manners, morals and midlife crises, captures many moods, sometimes sexy, sometimes thoughtful, sometimes slapstick – but always on target. That target is 42-year-old composer George (Dudley Moore), a man who has everything (including patient singer girlfriend Julie Andrews) – and who may just chuck it all on an obsessive quest for a beautiful woman (Bo Derek) he glimpses en route to her wedding. An iconic crowd-pleaser, “10” propelled the movie careers of Moore and Derek and gave Ravel’s Bolero a fiery new romantic context. And it stands as one of its director’s richest, most fully realized works.


“10” is the quintessential expression of mid-life crisis for the 1980’s and beyond!


Special Features:

·         Vintage Featurette: A Dream…a Fantasy…a TEN!

If 'Pleasantville' is handled properly, it should look wonderful in BD. The other two, I must admit, are of little interest.

I am also very excited about Pleasantville.  I haven't seen it in years and look forward to re-visiting it.


I might even pick up You've Got Mail if the price is right.

When I saw "You've Got Mail" was going to be released I thought they should include "Shop Around The Corner" in blu with it. They are included that film but in SD only. Too bad.

Pleasantville is a great film that ends up being only a good film, due to 'preachiness' inserted into the storyline at the end.  With that said, I'll still be picking this one up on blu.

I recently showed "10" to my wife, who had never seen it.  She seemed more shocked that Julie Andrews would swear.  Posted Image


Can't wait for the iconic Bo Derek in hi def.  Posted Image

Better not let your wife see Blake Edward's "S.O.B."! Her head might explode if she sees what Julie Andrews did in that! Posted Image

Just when I thought I wasnt going to upgrade to blu ray for,  Youve got mail. They had to throw the shop around the corner dvd in the mix, which I never saw.Now, its a must buy.

I'll definitely be picking up "10". The SD-DVD looks very dated. I'm not a fan of You've Got Mail, but may be tempted by the inclusion of The Shop Around The Corner. I always get sucked in watching that film when it is shown on TCM. My wife likes YGM.

Ooooh...  Nice!


If the quality is there, I will definitely get Pleasantville and probably You've Got Mail as well, especially since YGM will include The Shop Around The Corner on a separate disc.  And the prices look like they should be nice too given the ~$20 MSRP, so maybe they'll be release week purchases for me.

Very excited about Pleasantville.  It was a movie we always made fun of until we actually watched it.  Very sweet flick.

10 and You've Got Mail never did much for me, but I really liked Pleasantville.  And the price on blu-ray is certainly right.

I am happy to see any Blake Edwards film released in high definition, even if "10" is not one of my favorite films.  Hopefully we will see releases of more of his films on Blu-ray (or even just DVD!).  Even Edwards' lesser films are interesting, and his films have been criminally ignored on home video.

Amazon has You've Got Mail for pre-order at $14.  I couldn't find 10.

Some WB Catalog titles never go on sale (or at least not for the first year), so for $13.99 I am jumping on Pleasantville and You've got mail to upgrade my existing DVDs.
