The slate of movies includes THE SIMILARS, Mexican director Isaac Ezban’s sci-fi horror film set in an out-of-the-way bus station on a supernaturally stormy night; ADMIRAL, a magnificently told 17th Century epic chronicling the rise of Dutch naval hero Michiel de Ruyter as he saves the Netherlands from English, French and German rule starring Rutger Hauer and Charles Dance; KILL RATIO, an action adventure thriller set in Eastern Europe and starring Tom Hopper; SUN CHOKE, director Ben Cresciman’s critically acclaimed drama about a patient recovering from a severe psychotic break while she is under the care of two women with agendas of their own; CROSSING POINT, the story of a young American couple vacationing in Baja who unwittingly become involved with a cocaine smuggling cartel and have only twelve hours to survive; and PARADOX, about a group of M.I.T. students that create a time machine that gives them a limited amount of time to go back and stop a murder that has already happened.
Titles previously announced for May release are available on DVD and Blu-ray immediately; including THE WINDMILL, CURSE OF THE SLEEPING BEAUTY, CAMINO, PANDEMIC and THE LAST HEIST.
XLrator has partnered with Allied Vaughn, developer of the industry standard for media manufacturing-on-demand. Their business is founded on the idea that as the physical media market matures, the traditional supply chain becomes less effective. MOD answers with a more efficient model to harvest sales from mature, emerging, and/or catalog content. Titles licensed to Allied Vaughn are digitally ingested, and set up so that physical DVD and Blu-ray are manufactured in response to specific consumer demand. Titles are never out of stock, with zero inventory and ship to customers, usually within one business day.
