New titles, re-issues and upgrades from Eureka in September

7 July 2017

Eureka Entertainment have announced a mouth-watering collection of home entertainment titles for September, which include new releases, re-issues and Blu-ray upgrades of previous titles.

Jules Verne’s classic novel, Journey to the Center of the Earth, is brought to Blu-ray in this thrilling adventure about a band of intrepid explorers descending to the hidden reaches of our world. Scored by the legendary Bernard Hermann and filmed in stunning Cinemascope, Journey to the Center of the Earth is a much beloved classic, and a landmark in both ccience-fiction and adventure filmmaking. Eureka Classics will be releasing the film for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK, from a stunning 4K restoration, and on 18 September 2017.

Before he arrived in Hollywood to leave his indelible (and inimitable) mark on timeless comedies like Trouble in Paradise and The Shop Around The Corner, Ernst Lubitsch created an expansive body of work in Germany that proved to be as varied in tone as it was sophisticated in its measure of man and woman. On the 18 September 2017, Eureka's previously released DVD set, collecting six restored works from the silent phase of Lubitsch’s career and casting new light on the director both as a fully-formed comic master and as a virtuoso of cinematographic technique, will be upgraded or the first time ever on Blu-ray, in a 2-Disc set as part of The Masters of Cinema series. 

Suntan is a coming of ‘middle-age’ film, from Greek filmmaker Argyris Papadimitropoulos, that celebrates the beauty and strength of the youthful body, while simultaneously embracing its inevitable decay. The eternal Greek summer provides the perfect background for this extravagance of craving and everything that goes with it: flirting, casual sex, drugs, alcohol and pushing the boundaries to see how far your body can go. Suntan launches Eureka's brand new sub-label Montage Pictures, which will celebrate ground-breaking and thought-provoking world cinema from new and upcoming directors.  Released on 4 September 2017. Here's a trailer:

 

A hit with critics and audiences worldwide since its debut at the Sunscreen Film Festival, Capture Kill Release is an unflinching and chilling depiction of a couple’s moral decay for the sake of their “art”. Winning numerous awards from horror festivals around the world, and featuring star-making performances from the two leads, Capture Kill Release is one of the most talked about independent horror films in recent years, and will be released on DVD on 26 September 2017.

The Supervet follows charismatic and witty surgeon Professor Noel Fitzpatrick as he leads a team of 100 nurses, physiotherapists and hydro-therapists. Taking life-saving care to a whole new level and featuring some of the most unusual veterinary cases ever seen, The Supervet captures the raw emotion, drama and playfulness of Professor Noel Fitzpatrick and his staff as they treat the pets in their care, bringing hope and joy to the owners who in many cases had been told their pets were beyond saving. Series 1-8 of The Supervet, plus the Summer and Bionic Specials will be released on DVD in a 17-disc set on 11 September 2017.

And finally, also becoming more widely available, following a recent exclusivity period with the online store Zavvi, The EntityEnemy Mine and The Human Centipede Trilogy SteelBooks will be re-issued on 11 September 2017.

Further details of individual titles will be provided nearer to the release dates.
