Stephen King – Dollar Baby: The Book By Anthony Northrup

In the late 1970s, Stephen King had the idea of selling his short stories for one dollar and a contract to let young filmmakers make their own films based on his works. After King’s approval, these films were only available for viewing at film festivals around the world. For the last forty-plus years and over hundreds of films made, The Dollar Baby program has made a serious impact not only on the Stephen King world, but the film industry itself.

Unfortunately, for Stephen King fans, unless you attended these film festivals, you basically would never be able to see them. In fact, most Stephen King fans have never even heard of the Dollar Baby program. Well, that’s where Anthony Northrup comes in. He has been interviewing Dollar Baby filmmakers and reviewing their films for eight years. During that time he has hosted two Dollar Baby Film festivals at Crypticon Horror Con in Minnesota. 

As a major Stephen King fan, Northrup decided it was time to pull the curtain back and show the fans just what they have been missing. In this book, readers will learn all about the Dollar Baby program, fun facts, trivia, personal stories from the fans themselves, special guests contributors, essays, Where Are They Now?, 55 exclusive interviews with the Dollar Baby filmmakers and reviews of their films, and a whole lot more! 

The author covers every possible angle of the Dollar Baby program and it’s all here to enjoy! So, sit back, relax, and get ready to go behind the exclusive curtain and prepare yourselves to enter…Stephen King Dollar Baby: The Book! 

Pre-order the hardcover book HERE for $43.00.

Pre-order the softcover book HERE for $33.00.

Release date January 19, 2021.

Universal Pictures & Illumination Announce Sing 2

Universal Pictures and Illumination have announced Sing 2. 

The animated sequel features returning stars Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly, and Nick Kroll. 

Bono, Halsey, Pharrell Williams, Bobby Cannavale, Letitia Wright, Eric Andre, and Chelsea Peretti will also join the cast.

Next holiday season, the new chapter in Illumination’s smash animated franchise returns with big dreams and spectacular hit songs as can-do koala Buster Moon and his all-star cast of animal performers prepare to launch their most dazzling stage extravaganza yet …in the glittering entertainment capital of the world. There’s just one hitch: They first have to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star—played by legendary music icon Bono, making his animated film debut—to join them.

Buster (Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey) and his cast have turned the New Moon Theater into a local hit, but Buster has his eyes on a bigger prize: Debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City. But with no connections, Buster and his cast—including harried mother pig Rosita (Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon), rocker porcupine Ash (Scarlett Johansson), earnest gorilla Johnny (Taron Egerton), shy elephant Meena (Tori Kelly) and, of course, porcine provocateur extraordinaire Gunter (Nick Kroll)—have to sneak their way into the world-famous Crystal Entertainment offices, run by a ruthless mogul wolf named Jimmy Crystal (Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale).

In a desperate attempt to get Mr. Crystal’s attention, Gunter spontaneously pitches an outrageous idea that Buster quickly runs with, promising that their new show will star lion rock legend Clay Calloway (Bono). Problem is, Buster has never met Clay, an artist who shut himself away from the world more than a decade ago after the loss of his wife and hasn’t been seen since. As Gunter helps Buster dream up an out-of-this-world theatrical masterpiece, and the pressure (and sinister threats) from Mr. Crystal mount, Buster embarks on a quest to find Clay and persuade him to return to the stage. What begins as Buster’s dream of big-time success becomes an emotional reminder of the power of music to heal even the most broken heart.

Sing 2 is written and directed by acclaimed returning filmmaker Garth Jennings. The film is produced by visionary Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and by Janet Healy. The sequel combines dozens of classic rock and pop hit songs, electrifying performances, breathtaking artistry, and Illumination’s signature humor and heart into the definitive feel-good cinematic event of next year.

The Criterion Collection Announces Defending Your Life Blu-Ray For March

One of my favorite movies of all-time, Defending Your Life by Albert Brooks will receive the deluxe Criterion Collection treatment in March. If you haven’t watched Brooks’ hilarious take on the afterlife in this smart film then I urge you to do so!!!

Is there love after death? Acerbic everyman Albert Brooks finds a perfect balance between satirical bite and romantic-comedy charm as the writer, director, and star of this wonderfully warm and imaginative existential fantasy. After he dies suddenly, the hapless advertising executive Daniel Miller (Brooks) finds himself in Judgment City, a gleaming way station where the newly deceased must prove they lived a life of sufficient courage to advance in their journey through the universe. As the self-doubting Daniel struggles to make his case, a budding relationship with the uninhibited Julia (Meryl Streep) offers him a chance to finally feel alive. Buoyed by a brilliant supporting cast that includes Rip Torn, Lee Grant, and Buck Henry, Defending Your Life is a rare feat of personal, philosophical filmmaking that happens to also be divinely entertaining.

Features:

– New 4K digital restoration, supervised by director Albert Brooks, with 2.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray
– New conversation between Brooks and filmmaker Robert Weide
– New interview on the afterlife with theologian and critic Donna Bowman
– New program featuring excerpts from 1991 interviews with Brooks and actors Lee Grant and Rip Torn
– Trailer
– English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
– Plus an essay by filmmaker Ari Aster

Available March 30, 2021. Pre-order HERE.
