March Madness Brings ‘The Gods Must Be Crazy’ DVD

FEBRUARY 3, 2003

March Madness Brings ‘The Gods Must Be Crazy’ To Dvd

The hilarious and original comedy THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY is the star of the selection of DVDs released from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment next month, out in a DVD twin-set ultimate collector’s pack including its equally endearing sequel.

Horror movie fans will delight in DARKNESS FALLS, a movie dubbed ‘a continued step in the right direction for the horror genre,’ as well as HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE and Steven Seagal’s BELLY OF THE BEAST, while the animated JACKIE CHAN ADVENTURES captures the voice of martial arts mayhem star Jackie Chan.

March will also see a range of DVD titles move into the ‘right price’ category (RRP $19.95) including ADAPTATION, ENOUGH, THE SIXTH DAY, ANITA & ME, THE CABLE GUY, RUN LOLA RUN, SWIMMING UPSTREAM, and ST ELMO’S FIRE.

Standby by for April’s range of DVD releases including super-cop blockbuster S.W.A.T. and action comedy THE MEDALLION.

Release Date: March 18

This highly original comedy is available for the first time on DVD in this twin-set ultimate collector’s pack. Relive all the fun as the bashful bushman Xi collides with the so-called ‘civilised’ world and embarks on an epic adventure in the original THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY and sequel THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY II. Original, insightful, and decidedly absurd, this DVD collection of these two great films is truly a gift from the comedy gods. Special features highlights include behind-the-scenes features ‘Journey To Nyae’ and ‘Buster Reynolds remembers Jamie Uys,’ and a Baraka school photo gallery.

Release Date: March 18

DARKNESS FALLS is from the director of IMMORTAL and the producer of TOMBSTONE and brings relentless terror in the tradition of THIR13EEN GHOSTS, THE RING and BLAIR WITCH PROJECT. A supernatural evil has returned with a vengeance to the sleepy town of Darkness Falls and the only man who can stop it, is the only one who has survived it. A horror aficionado’s delight, DARKNESS FALLS on DVD contains an in-depth selection of special features. Highlights include storyboard to final film comparisons, a short film investigating the myth behind the legend of the Tooth Fairy, deleted scenes, a behind-the-scenes feature on the making of the movie with cast and crew interviews, and audio commentaries by the director, writer, and producers.

Release Date: March 18

An action comedy about a pair of mismatched, unappreciated cops trying to find time between their chaotic personal lives to solve a major murder case on the streets of Tinsel Town. HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE is a fun depiction of the buddy-cop genre full of wise cracks and jibes at Hollywood. This fast-paced funny film is captured on DVD with a director audio commentary and three behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of the movie with cast and crew interviews. Starring Hollywood heroes Harrison Ford (WHAT LIES BENEATH, PATRIOT GAMES) and rising star Josh Hartnett (PEARL HARBOUR, BLACK HAWK DOWN) who lead a great ensemble cast, HOLLYWOOD HOMICIDE is by the director of WHITE MEN CAN’T JUMP and DARK BLUE and the producer of ANGER MANAGEMENT and THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT.

Release Date: March 18

Starring action superstar Steven Seagal (HALF PAST DEAD, EXIT WOUNDS), BELLY OF THE BEAST is an action-packed thriller from the director of the cult Hong Kong hit NAKED WEAPON. A CIA operative on his way to retirement receives news his daughter has been kidnapped by terrorists while vacationing in Thailand and goes beyond the rules of the CIA’s attack mission to save her. BELLY OF THE BEAST on DVD includes the original widescreen presentation and contains the original movie trailer and bonus trailers.

Release Date: March 18

Follow world famous action hero Jackie Chan (RUSH HOUR, SHANGHAI KNIGHTS, and the upcoming THE MEDALLION) as he races around the world in two action adventures packed with danger, mystery and martial arts mayhem in this hit animated series now available on DVD.
