    Cannon Films DVD Collection

    10-Film DVD Collection Includes the Documentary,

    Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold

    Story of Cannon Films


    September 29 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and

    RatPac Documentary Films


    Burbank, Calif., July 22, 2015 – On September 29 Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) will release the Cannon Films Collection, featuring some of Cannon Films’ most notable cult movies of the ‘80s and ‘90s. The 10-film DVD set includes Missing in Action, Cobra, Delta Force, Over the Top, Masters of the Universe, Invasion USA,Bloodsport, Hitman, and Hellbound, as well as the entertaining documentary Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films.


    Produced by RatPac Documentary Films and Wild Fury (now known as WildBear Entertainment),  Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films tells the story ofMenahem Golan and Yoram Globus, the larger-than-life cousins who ran the Cannon Group beginning in 1980. Their passion for cinema and unorthodox production methods changed how movies were made and marketed but ultimately led to the company’s demise. Often criticized for their high volume of low-budget (and highly commercial) wild action films, Cannon helped launch the careers of some of Hollywood’s top action heroes like Charles Bronson, Chuck Norris, Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren.


    The Cannon Films Collection (DVD) will sell for $49.92 SRP; Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films standalone DVD will sell for $14.96 SRP and Digital $9.99 ARP.

    Bloodsport (1988)

    Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films (2014)

    Director Mark Hartley takes us on a hilarious thrill ride through the masterworks of Yoram Globus and the late Menahem Golan: two movie-obsessed immigrant cousins who became Hollywood’s ultimate gate-crashers.


    With hair-trigger randomness, these cousins of chaos churned out a breathtaking cavalcade of hits and misses, made movies out of posters, released a sequel before the original film, botched plots, bounced cheques and burned careers – and in doing so changed the way movies were made and marketed.
