Celebrating 50 years since its release Cleopatra starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor ahs been beautifully restored for this 50th Anniversary re-release.
In stunning high definition this film has been remastered to the highest level. The quality is so good you will marvel at the fact that this lavish production is indeed the age it is.
Standing the test of time the performances from the now iconic Taylor as Cleopatra and Burton as Mark Anthony the film, about the Egyptian Queen and themes of power, love, obsession and despair this is an epic in every sense of the word.
Coming home on 3D Blu-Ray and DVD on 1st July 2013 is Oz The Great and Powerful. Based on the books of Frank L Baum author of ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ and directed by Sam Raimi ‘Oz The Great and Powerful’ is certainly one of this years brightest fantasy adventures, for all of the family.
The story may lack the brains, heart and courage of the 1939 ‘The Wizard of Oz’, but it is still an enjoyable adventure none the less. Featuring James Franco as Oscar Diggs, a small-time magician who is swept away to an enchanted land and is forced into a power struggle between three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams) he is reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz, and must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late.
