Mill Creek Entertainment has added four event mini-series — all priced at just $9.98 — to its July 21 DVD release calendar.
Already in place on that date are Classic Horror, a double-disc, four-film set featuring The Mad Magician, Five, The Man Who Turned to Stone and The Terror of the Tongs and Vintage Sci-Fi Movies, also two-discs, but showcasing a half-dozen sci-fi flicks — The 27th Day, The Night the World Exploded, The H-Man, Twelve to the Moon, Battle in Outer Space and Valley of the Dragons.
The four mini-series in the group kick off with director Allan Eastman’s 1987 bio-tale, Ford: The Man and the Machine, starring Best Actor Oscar-winner Cliff Robertson as automobile icon, Henry Ford, with Hope Lange as his wife Clara.
Son of the Dragon is a 2006 release from director David Wu (Brotherhood of the Wolf, Snow Queen, etc.) and starring David Carradine in a re-telling of The Thief of Bagdad.
Next up is political action thriller, The Summit. Set against the backdrop of the G8 Summit, a seemingly beneficial drug could actually become a terror weapon and only a grieving mother (Rachelle Lefevre) and would-be documentary filmmaker could be the only ones capable of stopping this potential worldwide calamity.
Lastly, Mill Creek Entertainment will release The Fire Next Time. Directed by Tom McLoughlin and starring Craig T. Nelson, Jürgen Prochnow, Bonnie Bedelia and Richard Farnsworth … the Earth has reached the tipping point as the greenhouse effect is sending the planet into an end-times cycle of massive floods and blasting heat waves.
