CLINT EASTWOOD – 35 Films 35 Years
Clint Eastwood’s illustrious motion picture career has spanned more than a half century and has touched generations of filmgoers. The filmmaker/actor has won five Academy Awards®, and his films have grossed nearly $2 billion at the domestic box office. Warner Home Video (WHV) will celebrate Eastwood and his 35-year association with the studio through Malpaso Productions with a comprehensive, elegant giftset, Clint Eastwood: 35 Films 35 Years at Warner Bros., to be released February 16, 2010.
The collection, considered the largest feature film box set ever released for a single artist, contains 34 classic Eastwood films from the Warner library and highlights the breadth and depth of his work — from Where Eagles Dare through Gran Torino. Included are his “Dirty Harry” movies, his Best Picture Oscar® dramas and nominees, his Westerns, his war movies, his comedies, and more. (A complete list is available at the end of this release.)
The 35th film is The Eastwood Factor, an intimate short film from Time magazine critic and film historian Richard Schickel. The Eastwood Factor presents Eastwood in a way he’s rarely seen — visiting film locations or sites where his movies were created, and on the Warner lot visiting the costume department and Eastwood Scoring Stage, as well as at his home. Eastwood’s candid, intelligent and often humorous interviews about his body of work and the choices he made, along with Schickel’s selection of scenes from his movies (including his upcoming Invictus), results in an up-close and personal portrait of one of the great icons of our era. The end result is a clear reminder of why Eastwood’s career as both a great filmmaker and actor has been so enduring and his work so respected.

SHERLOCK HOLMES Blu-ray – 5 copies
Join the wild search for the ultimate clue when Sherlock Holmes arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD March 30th from Warner Home Video. In this gritty, never before seen look
at the London underworld, Robert Downey Jr. takes us beyond the legendary reputation of the brilliant sleuth and puts his spin on the quick-witted, bare-knuckled detective, Sherlock Holmes.
Sherlock Holmes, with the aid of his trusted ally Dr. John Watson, is unequaled in his pursuit of criminals. He employs his own quirky and unique (albeit at times unconventional), methods to get to the heart of a case, traveling where no one else would think to go to find what others cannot see…
But now a storm is gathering, a threat unlike anything that Holmes has ever confronted. After a string of ritualistic murders, Holmes and Watson arrive just in time to save the latest victim and uncover the killer: Lord Blackwood. As he approaches his scheduled hanging, Blackwood warns Holmes that death has no power over him, and when that prediction comes true, London and Scotland Yard are left confounded. But to Holmes, the game is afoot. Racing to stop Blackwood’s deadly plot, Holmes and Watson plunge into a world of the dark arts and new technologies, where logic is sometimes the best crime-fighting weapon.
From Director Guy Ritchie (Snatch, RocknRolla), Sherlock Holmes stars Academy AwardTM nominee Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man series, Chaplin, Tropic Thunder), Academy AwardTM nominee Jude Law (The Talented Mr. Ripley, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), Rachel McAdams (Wedding Crashers, The Notebook) and Mark Strong (Body of Lies, RocknRolla, Syriana).
Sherlock Holmes will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack for $35.99 and on single disc DVD for $28.98.

South Park: The Complete Thirteenth Season Uncensored – 2 copies
2009 AMC miniseries, THE PRISONER – 5 copies
A man wakes up in a mysterious place where people have numbers instead of names, and all traces of his former life are renounced as delusions. Welcome to “The Village,” the setting of the 2009 AMC miniseries, The Prisoner, coming to DVD on March 23, 2010 from Warner Home Video. A reinterpretation of the 1960s cult classic by Patrick McGoohan, The Prisoner tells the story of one man’s desperate quest to find his way back to his former life and reclaim his freedom. Jim Caviezel, Ian McKellen, Ruth Wilson, Jamie Campbell- Bower, Lennie James, and Hayley Atwell star in this powerful 6-hour miniseries, which combines a wide range of genres, from espionage to sci-fi, into an adrenaline-pumping, edge-of-your-seat thriller that will ultimately make you question what you think is real. The much-anticipated three-disc DVD set is filled with over three hours of extra content including audio commentaries, interviews, deleted scenes, and the behind-the-scenes diary of the 92 days of production. The Prisoner is priced to own at $29.98 SRP.
Nobody resigns from Summakor. Once he had a name, a job with the mysterious spy-ops outfit Summakor and a life in New York. Now he has a number. He’s called 6, and everything has changed since he quit the many-tentacled agency. Suddenly he lives in The Village, a too-perfect paradise wretched with conformity. A society where all names are numbers. Where secret eyes watch over hollow bliss. Where dissent is rare and whispered. Where 6 knows he has one option: escape. Jim Caviezel portrays disoriented, determined 6 and Ian McKellen plays the serenely cunning Village overseer called 2 in a brilliantly reimagined, six-episode sci-fi riff on the Patrick McGoohan series of the 1960s. Are 6’s experiences real? Happenings of a parallel universe? Imaginings of his own walled-in mind? Enter The Village….
