La-La Land has announced their currently planned schedule of releases for this month.
This week the label is releasing an expanded two-disc 25th anniversary edition of James Horner's score for CASPER, the lavish live-action 1995 film version of the beloved cartoon character, directed by Brad Silberling and starring Christina Ricci, Bill Pullman, Cathy Moriarty and Eric Idle; and Larry Groupe's score for the war docudrama THE OUTPOST (previously announced as a July release).
On August 25 they plan to release Devin Burrows' score for the 2020 horror film THE WRETCHED, as well as two soundtracks for small-screen animated superhero stories inspired by DC Comics, TEEN TITANS GO! VS. TEEN TITANS (music by Jason Lazarus) and YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS (by Kristopher Carter, Michael McCuistion and Lolita Ritmanis).
Intrada has announced an entirely unexpected upcoming soundtrack CD, release date unspecified, featuring a never-before-released score by one of film music's most beloved and respected composers. For more information go to this Message Board thread.
Long one of the most reliably poor-looking Abbott & Costello films on home video – the duo’s independently-produced 1949 comedy AFRICA SCREAMS (79 mins.)– is now, thanks to the 3-D Film Archive and Classic Flix, one of the best. Lovingly and painstakingly restored by Bob Furmanek and his team from the original 35mm nitrate film elements, this limited-edition Blu-Ray does justice to a picture that the comedy team produced outside their Universal Pictures deal – resulting in a myriad of terrible video releases since the film fell into the public domain once a distributor failed to renew its copyright.
