Scott. Lynch. Siegel. Frankenheimer. Donner. Cronenberg. Yimou. Cimino. Van Sant. Cunha. These are only a few of the filmmakers Ballyhoo Motion Pictures produced features about in 2021. I also had the pleasure of interviewing some lifelong favorites in the industry, including #ChevyChase, #DanAykroyd, Kenneth Johnson, Mark Pellington, Richard Kelly, Hans Zimmer, and more! There is not enough room here to personally thank every individual who contributed to these productions, but I want you ALL to know that I could not have moved a frame without your tireless research, participation, guidance, and support! It was also a great honor to work with some of the best #bluray distribution companies in the industry, including Via Vision Entertainment, Arrow Video, The Film Detective, Shout! Factory, Kino Lorber Studio Classics, Mill Creek Entertainment, Severin Films, and more! Ballyhoo is looking forward to what 2022 has to offer! #happynewyear2022

Giant from the Unknown Blu-ray Release Date January 19, 2021

Here's a good review for The Film Detective's upcoming blu-ray premiere of GIANT FROM THE UNKNOWN. This one was a bit personal for Ballyhoo Motion Pictures, as it stars one of our dearest friends. It was also an opportunity to collaborate with another dear friend, C Courtney Joyner. The film is schlocky, but I think the new bonus materials and commentaries make it a lot of fun!

"Our favourite, though, has to be the exclusive documentary on Carolco Pictures, which puts a spotlight on the production company that brought us movies such as Terminator 2 and Rambo: First Blood, sinking in vast amounts of money until it invested everything in the movie that would eventually bankrupt it: Cutthroat Island." Here's another great review for the upcoming STUDIOCANAL Lionsgate 4K release of #TotalRecall, featuring NEW documentaries from Ballyhoo Motion Pictures! Thanks, SciFiNow Magazine!

"Total Excess: How Carolco Changed Hollywood documentary could well be a release all of its own, such is the quality as we get to explore the golden years of ‘80s and ‘90s cinema. Detailed doesn’t even cut it when it comes to describing how great Total Excess is, with this such a fantastic watch for anyone with even the slightest of interest in the films of that time".
