LEFTOVER TURKEY.
NEW RELEASES.
Heat Up The DVD Player. Serve.


New DVD Releases for November 27, 2007

Six big new releases for the last week in November.

In the first DVD, the confusion starts with the title and goes from there. In I Know Who Killed Me, Lindsay Lohan plays a teen who gets kidnapped and tortured. When she escapes and regains consciousness in the hospital, she struggles to convince authorities that she’s not the abducted teen they thinks she is. Julia Ormond and Neal McDonough co-star.

You might be between holidays, but your favorite bizarre Brit is right in the middle of his. Rowan Atkinson stars in Mr. Bean’s Holiday, and he takes a trip to Cannes. There Bean accidentally separates a young boy from his father, and has to reunite the two…if he can find the time between falling off bikes, finding love and touring France. Steve Pemberton and Lily Atkinson are along for the ride too.

Next up, the star of all those whack Saturday Night Live “digital shorts” hits the big screen — on a beat-up motorcycle. In Hot Rod, Andy Samberg stars as Rod Kimble, a stuntman (of sorts) who’s planning to jump a bunch of school busses. Bill Hader and Isla Fisher co-star to help the daredevil raise funds for his stepfather’s operation.

The kids are back to school this week. Redbox is sending you there, too. In the high school comedy Bratz, four really challenging teenage girls go head-to-head with the headmaster, who wants them to be a little less cliquey and join other social groups. Logan Browning, Janel Parrish, Nathalie Ramos and Skyler Shaye star as the title characters.

The last new release of the week is Waitress, starring Keri Russell. She plays a pregnant, unhappy and hard-working server. Her husband (Jeremy Sisto) is a dud, and she’s all but given up on true happiness. That all changes when Dr. Pomatter (played by Matthew Fillion) strolls into town and puts on the charm.

Don’t forget about the bang up action from last week in Live Free or Die Hard. Bruce Willis returns as NYC cop John McClane, a grizzled vet with a knack for one-liners. Justin Long stars as a computer hacker on the run, and Timothy Olyphant stars as a villain looking to create chaos.

As always, movie fans, these releases can be selected online and picked up at your nearest redbox.

THE DAY AFTER THE
DAY AFTER TURKEY DAY:
Biggest DVD Day Of The Year

Redbox New DVD Releases - Nov 20 2007

Let the stores throw their sales. They can have the day after Thanksgiving. You’ll just get worn out shopping on Friday. Then on Saturday, you’re redbox’. Be ready with these great flicks.

First up, a tradition about as old as Turkey Day itself: Bruce Willis cleaning house as John McClane. In Live Free or Die Hard, Bruce returns as your favorite grizzled NYC cop, this time protecting the one squirmy little computer hacker (played by Justin Long, from all those Mac ads) who just might be able to prevent doomsday. Timothy Olyphant plays the bad guy.

Next, how about a star-studded remake of a stage favorite? How about the inspirational story of a chubby teenager in the early 60s who follows her dream and lands on a dance show? And how about Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken, Zac Ephron and John Travolta (as a woman, no less)? This is one Hairspray that will create joy, and won’t kill the ozone layer. Rent a copy today.

Wait, it’s November…and you haven’t done your holiday shopping? Just…wow. Well, you need another reminder, so grab Santa Clause 3. Funnyman Tim Allen returns in this popular series as a regular guy pulling double-duty as Santa. But this time Jack Frost (Martin Short) is out to steal Christmas, and Allen has to get pretty festive to stop him. Elizabeth Mitchell and Eric Lloyd co-star.

Or maybe you’re in the mood for a psychological thriller? (Family visits will do that sometimes.) Rent Stir of Echoes: The Homecoming. In this sequel to the suspenseful original, a soldier returns home from fighting in Iraq and has a hard time adjusting to civilian life. And that’s BEFORE he’s haunted by the dead. This one stars Zachary Bennett, Nicholas Carella and Rob Lowe.

Here are a few biggies from last week. If you missed them, they’re still available online. Then you can pick them up at your nearest redbox.

Clooney, Pitt, Damon and more — everyone returns in Ocean’s Thirteen, the third installment in the A-list-and-high-budget franchise. This time Willy Bank (played by Al Pacino) double-crosses a friend of the gang. So they put on the suits, put on the charm, and set out to get him.

And finally, don’t forget about Shrek the Third. It brings the Hollywood stars, too. Mike Meyers voices the title monster — dealing with the stress of being successor to the throne AND being a dad-to-be — while Eddie Murphy, Antonio Banderas and Cameron Diaz all return as well.

Good stuff, movie fans. See you after the tryptophan wears off.

STILL STRUGGLING WITH
THE TIME CHANGE?
Better Watch Your DVDs Before Work.

This week starts out with the return of…pretty much every Hollywood hunk ever in Ocean’s Thirteen. Clooney, Pitt, Damon, Cheadle and the rest head back to Vegas in this third act (and return to form) in the Ocean franchise. When Jimmy Bank (played by Al Pacino) double-crosses a friend of Danny Ocean’s, the whole gang sets out to get revenge by tanking Bank’s new casino…dashingly.

And speaking of A-list casts and third installments, Shrek the Third brings back all those recognizable A-list voices. Mike Meyers voices the big green lug — who this time is a tad insecure about his role as a father-to-be and becoming the new king. That’s why he asks his closest friends (voiced by Eddie Murphy and Antonio Banderas) to help a young rebel named Artie get appointed king in Shrek’s place.

Hey, while redbox is riffing on the subject of high-concept cartoons, definitely check out Spongebob Squarepants: Spongebob’s Atlantis SquarePantis. This time your favorite animated bubble scrubber travels with his friends to the lost city of Atlantis in search of the world’s oldest living bubble. They find a whole sunken-city’s worth of fun on the way.

Need to tuck a period piece in between all this cartoon watching? Superb, old chap! In Amazing Grace, you’ll travel back to 19th century England and learn about how the great William Wilberforce took Parliament by storm, making those funny white wigs stand on end. Ioan Gruffudd, Romola Garai, Benedict Cumberbatch and Albert Finney star.

Are there still a few from last week you didn’t see? For shame. But redbox wants to give you a second chance.

In I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, Adam Sandler and Kevin James — a couple of burly Brooklyn firefighters — try to bilk the government out of pension funds by pretending to be gay. Enter one gorgeous woman (Jessica Biel) and their plan comes completely undone.

And in the animated feature Ratatouille, a country rat named Remy and a dishwasher named Linguini become unlikely culinary stars in the cutthroat Paris food scene. Ian Holm, Lou Romano and Patton Oswalt are just a few of those who voice the characters.

See you next week, movie lovers. Gobble Gobble.

News from Redbox – New Releases for November 6

MOVE OVER “ROCK-TOBER”…
“NOV-FILM-BER” IS HERE!
(Oh Save It, You Get The Idea.)

It’s gray and chilly out. There are smashed pumpkins on your doorstep. The first week of November (“Nov-film-ber”, as it were) is the perfect time to rent some great new releases.

Starting off, it’s the comedy I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. Adam Sandler and Kevin James star as a couple of Brooklyn firefighters who cook up an unlikely (and, some might say, insensitive) plan for financial security: they’re going to pretend to be gay to receive domestic partner benefits. Things for the two big lugs get tough, though, with Jessica Biel around to constantly tempt their straight sides.

Next up is the hilarious and charming animated feature Ratatouille. Remy is from the French countryside and has aspirations of being a successful chef in Paris. The hang-up is that Remy is a rat. (Redbox will resist the urge to make a cheap, French department of health joke). But when Remy becomes buddies with a young restaurant worker, the two might just help each other to the top. Ian Holm, Lou Romano and Patton Oswalt are just a few of the stars who lend their voices.

Failed to notice the holiday decorations that have been in department stores since July? Then rent Deck the Halls today. It’s the tale of two neighbors (Danny Devito and Matthew Broderick) who have it out when one of them puts up enough holiday lights to basically out-shine the sun. The two almost forget what the holidays are supposed to be all about (which is, of course, watching DVDs). Kristin Davis also stars.

Also to put you in the holiday spirit, it’s A Dennis the Menace Christmas. Your favorite characters from the popular comic strip create a new, cute spin on Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Naturally, Dennis (played by young Maxwell Perry Cotton) is your little protagonist and Mr. Wilson (Robert Wagner) is your Scrooge. Kim Schraner and George Newbern also star.

And returning from “Rock-tober”…

Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst are back in Spiderman 3, the latest (and darkest) of the movies about the web-spinning superhero. This time the villain happens to be Spiderman’s own evil side (played by Topher Grace), who dresses in a daunting black costume.

And finally, don’t forget about License to Wed. Jon Krasinski and Mandy Moore are all set to walk down the aisle…at a church where Robin Williams just happens to be the minister. Now he—in his infinite craziness—gets to decide if they’re fit for marriage or not.
Any of these great new movies are available for you to select online, then pick up at your nearest redbox. Yep, all “Nov-film-ber” long.
