Three titles are heading to Blu-ray in April.
'Little Nikita' - A timely espionage thriller which stars River Phoenix as a seemingly average teenager, except in one respect--his real name is Nikita. River Phoenix has been living a dangerous lie and Sidney Poitier is the secret agent who forces him to face the hard truth about his parents' true identity in this riveting spy thriller.
'Punchline' - Comedy is no laughing matter for Oscar® winners Sally Field and Tom Hanks, who take center stage in the smash hit Punchline. Field (Forrest Gump, Mrs. Doubtfire) stars as Lilah Krytsick, a New Jersey housewife and mother of three who desperately wants to make it big as a comedian. All her life people have been telling her she's funny, and now her home life has been catapulted into chaos as she spends her nights onstage at the New York comedy club, the Gas Station. Hanks (Cast Away, Saving Private Ryan) plays Steven Gold, a self-centered Lenny Bruce-type who's been stealing the spotlight at the Station with his irrepressible, natural comedic talent. Drawn to one another, Steven helps the stumbling Lilah turn her routine from flat to funny,
'Psycho Circus' - Three film collection includes 'The Creeping Flesh' - A Victorian-age scientist returns to London with his paleontological bag-of-bones discovery from Papua New Guinea. Unfortunately, when exposed to water, flesh returns to the bones unleashing a malevolent being on the scientist's family and friends. 'Brotherhood of Satan' - A family is trapped in a desert town by a cult of senior-citizens who recruit the town's children to worship Satan.
