'Cyrano de Bergerac' - Blu-ray pre-order available from Amazon UK - £14.99

Release date: February 24th

"Cyrano (Gérald Depardieu), a swashbuckling hero with a gift for verse, is in love with the beautiful Roxane (Anne Brochet) but fears his prominent nose would cause her to object his romantic advances. Instead he uses his poetic artistry to help a dashing but shallow suitor, Christian (Vincent Perez), who employs the words to which Cyrano longs to give voice. But will the object of their affection realise who she's really falling for?

Cyrano de Bergerac is a spectacular and vibrant adaptation of Edmond Rostand's classic play, funny and touching in equal measure, and featuring English subtitles by author Anthony Burgess (A Clockwork Orange). Amid the lavish period design, Depardieu has never been better than as the swaggering scribe, delivering verve and pathos under Jean-Paul Rappeneau's vigorous direction. This classic of world cinema is presented here on Blu-ray in the UK for the first time."

'The Pet Shop Boys In 'It Couldn't Happen Here'' - Dual version pre-order available at Amazon UK - £19.98

Release date - June 15

"Originally conceived as an hour-long video based on the Pet Shop Boys 1987 album, Actually, It Couldn't Happen Here turned into a full-scale feature film directed by Jack Bond (The Blueblack Hussar).

The first feature-length film starring the Pet Shop Boys alongside Joss Ackland, Gareth Hunt and Barbara Windsor finds Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe on an extraordinary adventure from the coast to London, encountering a curious array of eccentric characters along the way. Pop surrealism meets classic road movie, the film is peppered with hits from the duo's first studio albums, including 'West End Girls', 'It's a Sin', and 'Always On My Mind'.

Never less than fascinating, It Couldn't Happen Here is a truly unique film and one that has sadly been unavailable. Newly remastered by the BFI from a 4K scan, we are delighted to present the worldwide Blu-ray and DVD debut."


Special features
  • Presented in High Definition and Standard Definition
  • Limited Edition 48-page Digi-book includes writing on the film by Anthony Nield, Jason Wood and William Fowler
  • Feature commentary by Jack Bond, James Dillon and Simon Archer (2020)
  • Interview with Jack Bond (2020)
  • Other extras TBC
