Weinstein Extreme Label Sets Title Dates21 Jun, 2007 By: Chris Tribbey
The Weinstein Co. and Genius Products' Dimension Extreme label, which was announced in May at Cannes, has its first DVD titles lined up.
The British comedy Dirty Sanchez and the video-game based action movie DOA: Dead or Alive street Sept. 11. The horror flick Broken debuts Sept. 25.
Dirty Sanchez is a 2006 film following the self-abusing ways of four British men, who do “Jackass”-style stunts related to the seven deadly sins, and take their act on a six-country world tour. Much of it likely isn't legal in the United States.
Both an unrated and a rated version will be released, and special features include a commentary from cast and crew and a slew of stunts that didn't make the film.
DOA is a movie take-off of a wildly popular fighting video game, where gorgeous women enter a secret martial arts contest on a secluded island, taking on the best fighters in the world. Jaime Pressly (“My Name is Earl”), Holly Valance (“Prison Break”) and Devon Aoki (Sin City, 2 Fast 2 Furious) star in the film, in theaters now.
Broken is the tale of a madman who puts women through a series of brutal and humiliating trials in a dark, damp forest, to see if they'll survive.
“Our objective is establish Dimension Extreme as the preeminent DVD label for edgy, provocative and boundary-pushing films of all genres, including horror, comedy, action and thriller,” said Michael Radiloff, EVP, marketing for Genius Products. “These movies will be available in unrated and uncensored versions that will provide genre fans with an intense experience that they cannot have at their local cineplexes.”
