Four titles are coming to Blu-ray in June.
In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory is preparing 'Where The Buffalo Roam: Collector's Edition,' 'Cheech & Chong's Next Movie,' 'Car Wash,' and 'Trespass' for Blu-ray throughout June.
'Where The Buffalo Roam: Collector's Edition' (June 6) - Comic star Bill Murray is at his wildest as America's leading "Gonzo" journalist, Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, the legendary underground reporter whose passion for writing was second only to his love of weird chemicals, alcohol, violence and insanity. Along with best friend (Peter Boyle), Murray offers a manic look back at the Sixties and Seventies as an eyewitness to everything from a free-for-all San Francisco drug trial to a one-on-one bathroom interview with then Presidential candidate Richard Nixon. This off-the-wall comedy also boasts a musical score by rock superstar Neil Young.
'Cheech & Chong's Next Movie' (June 13) - The zany twosome is back for some smoke-enhanced misadventures in this riotous comedy. This time, Cheech must deal with an angry neighbor and losing his job, all while trying to score with a sexy young lady. Meanwhile, Chong meets Cheech's cousin, Red (Cheech Marin in a dual role), and the two buds have a wild time buzzing around Hollyweird in a bad Ferrari. Along the way, the dynamic duo find time for some mishaps at a movie set, the welfare office, a hotel, a brothel, a music store, a rich girl's house, a comedy club, the ultimate weed field and a UFO-all before the second reel! This outrageous comedy features early film appearances by Paul "Pee-wee Herman" Reubens, Edie McClurg, Cassandra "Elvira" Petersen, John "Jambi" Paragon and Phil Hartman.
'Car Wash' (June 20) - Everybody is cleaning up and getting down in this classic comedy from the decade that brought you the tube top, the polyester suit and lots of good times! It's just a typical day in the lives of the employees, customers and passersby of a Los Angeles car wash. There's a would-be robbery... an assembly line of the weirdest, baddest, shadiest characters you've ever met... and lots of '70s music to pass the hours till quitting time. Featuring outrageously hilarious performances by George Carlin, Professor Irwin Corey, the Pointer Sisters, and Richard Pryor as Daddy Rich – a flamboyant Reverend who preaches the goodness of the dollar – Car Wash is a timeless classic celebrating an era devoted to living life in the fast lane.
'Trespass' (June 27) - Everyone wants a piece of the action – and the treasure – as Bill Paxton (Twister) and William Sadler (Tales From The Crypt Presents: Demon Knight) take on a ruthless gang in this high-caliber thriller. In the rubble of a four-alarm blaze, Vince (Paxton) and Don (Sadler), two Arkansas firemen, discover a map leading to a fortune in stolen gold hidden in an abandoned East St. Louis tenement. What they don't know is the building is headquarters to a vicious mob, led by the notorious King James (Ice T, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) and Savon (Ice Cube, Friday, Ride Along). When the firefighters accidentally witness the mob executing some of their enemies, the trespassers become the gang's next target in this pulse-pounding thrillfest.
