Oscar Winner Anthony Hopkins and Tony Winner Matthew Broderick Star in ======================= THE ROAD TO WELLVILLE ======================= Premiering Sept. 10 on DVD __________________________________________________ ___________________ Culver City, Calif. (July 1, 2002) -The unbelievably odd world of health-craze huckster and Corn Flakes inventor John Harvey Kellogg comes to life with the talents of Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins ("The Silence of the Lambs") and two-time Tony winner Matthew Broderick ("Brighton Beach Memoirs," "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying") in THE ROAD TO WELLVILLE. The comedy from director Alan Parker makes its first-ever appearance on DVD Sept. 10 from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment. Written by Parker (director of "Mississippi Burning" and the Oscar-winning "Midnight Express") from the novel by T. Coraghessan Boyle, THE ROAD TO WELLVILLE features an all-star cast led by Hopkins and including Dana Carvey ("The Master of Disguise"), John Cusack ("America's Sweethearts") and Lara Flynn Boyle ("Men in Black II"). They all populate the more-than-slightly crazy Battle Creek Sanitarium, a combination spa-hospital-and-grand-hotel that is the brainchild of the wacky Kellogg. Into the fray come the sweet-spirited Eleanor, played by Bridget Fonda ("Single White Female"), and her devoted husband Will (Broderick). What they don't realize is that their efforts to improve their health will become a comedic nightmare of ill-timed sexual temptations, mechanical contraptions that would put Rube Goldberg to shame, and highly questionable dietary "breakthroughs." THE ROAD TO WELLVILLE: Columbia Pictures and Beacon Present a Dirty Hands Production. Also starring Michael Lerner. Executive Producers Rom Rosenberg and Marc Abraham. Produced by Alan Parker, Armyan Bernstein and Robert F. Colesberry. Written and Directed by Alan Parker. THE ROAD TO WELLVILLE DVD FEATURES * Digitally Mastered Audio and Video * Remastered in High Definition * Full Screen Presentation * Audio: English (Dolby Surround) * Subtitles: English * Bonus Trailers * Scene Selections * Interactive Menus MPAA Rating: R (for sex-related humor) / Price: $24.95 Original Theatrical Release: 1994 Color / Closed Captioned / 120 minutes DVD #09308 / UPC Code: 0-43396-09308-9

It was so nice of them to "digitally master" half the picture for us.

What the hell is going through the minds of the people at Columbia TriStar?

Really, I want to know. I'm dying of curiousity here.
