The 64th Cannes Film festival opened last week, setting the stage for some of the world’s greatest cinematic talent to showcase their latest work. In honour of those selected to premiere at this glittering event‚ today’s Blu-ray Monday comes with an extra special twist! The winner will take home not one but two amazing box sets, the new Stanley Kubrick: Visionary Filmmaker Collection and the Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy.
With a 40th Anniversary screening of Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange taking centre stage at this year’s festival, we’ve decided to offer up the director’s entire back catalogue on Blu-ray to commemorate his extraordinary contribution to film. This collection brings together for the first time his nine most acclaimed works including The Shining‚ Lolita and 2001: A Space Odyssey – literally hours worth of thrilling entertainment for any film lover’s library.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides debuted at Cannes last week to great praise, so what better way to salute the swashbuckling adventure than by giving away the saga so far. The first three movies follow the eccentric journey of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) accompanied by extravagant sets, impressive stunts and sword fights galore making this trilogy great fun for the entire family.
