Terrahawks: Volume 2 (Blu-Ray)

Gerry Anderson, the hugely influential creator of Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet, made a spectacular return to puppet animation in the early 1980’s with an exciting new series co-created with Christopher Burr. Thrilling yet another generation of children (and adults!), Terrahawks introduced a new elite force to defend 21st century Earth against a host of alien invaders.

Led by the heroic Tiger Ninestein, the Terrahawks crew consists of Captain Mary Falconer, his acting second-in-command; fighter-pilot and former pop star Kate Kestrel; the poetically inclined Lieutenant Hiro; and Lt. Hawkeye – the gunner with computer-enhanced vision. Assisted by a legion of charismatic spherical robots known as the Zeroids, they battle a cabal of evil adversaries – none more terrifying than android crone Zelda, the would-be conqueror of all “Earth-Scum”!

A further thirteen episodes of Terrahawks are presented here for the first time in High Definition from the best available materials, in their original as-transmitted aspect ratio.

Donald Glover is the new Lando!

Lucasfilm have announced that Donald Glover (Community) will be playing the part of Lando Calrissian in the new Han Solo Star Wars film.

The film will be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller who had this to say:

“We’re so lucky to have an artist as talented as Donald join us. These are big shoes to fill, and an even bigger cape, and this one fits him perfectly, which will save us money on alterations. Also, we’d like to publicly apologize to Donald for ruining Comic-Con for him forever.”


Two of comics greatest teams team up for the very first time! Something terrible has happened in Angel Grove!

When the Command Center is breached and the teleporters are damaged, Zack is flung into another universe, where he’s mistaken for a villain by a mysterious masked vigilante.

Can the other Power Rangers get to their friend in time to save him from Batman? Co-published with BOOM! Studios.

Butler’s first film appearance was as a young child in a small supporting role in the 1979 slasher film Savage Weekend, her main acting career began in 1991 in the television series Law & Order, this was followed up with an episode of Law & Order. This led to her first appearance on the Cult Faction radar in 1992 in the television series Mann & Machine playing an android police officer who was partnered with a human detective. The series was set in Los Angeles in the near future and was co-created by Dick Wolf.

A year later, Butler starred in her second series, South Beach, in which she played a con artist and thief who made a deal with the federal government; in exchange for their wiping of her criminal record, she performs certain tasks for them.

Further roles came in The Lyons Den, Bloodlines, The Last Letter, Double Cross, Basilisk: The Serpent King, Striking Range before a 2007 run as Ava Jenkins in As the World Turns.

Dog Soldiers (2002)

A couple is camping in the Scottish Highlands. The woman gives the man a silver letter opener as a present; shortly afterwards they are killed in their tent by an unseen assailant.

Meanwhile, Private Cooper (Kevin McKidd) is seen running through a forest in North Wales. He attacks his pursuers but is overwhelmed and wrestled to the ground. It turns out Cooper is trying to join a special forces unit but fails when he refuses to shoot a dog in cold blood. He is returned to his unit by Captain Richard Ryan (Liam Cunningham).

Four weeks later a squad of six regular British Army soldiers, including Cooper, is dropped into the Scottish Highlands, somewhat fed up about missing an England–Germany World Cup match. Expecting to carry out a training mission against a Special Air Service (SAS) unit, they only find their savaged remains. A badly-wounded Captain Ryan, the only survivor, makes cryptic references to what attacked them. Unseen predators attack the troops. While retreating, Bruce (Thomas Lockyer) is impaled on a tree branch, killing him, and Sergeant Wells (Sean Pertwee) is attacked. He is rescued by Cooper and carried to a rural roadside where the group encounters Megan (Emma Cleasby), a zoologist who takes them to a lonely house, belonging to an unknown family. The soldiers who remain are Wells, Cooper, Spoon (Darren Morfitt ), Joe (Chris Robson) and Terry (Leslie Simpson). As dark falls, the house is surrounded by the attackers: werewolves!
