IFC Film’s well received Red Riding Trilogy (review here) is coming home to Blu-ray and DVD, and as you’d expect, we have the first details and the artwork. We’re good like that! Dig it!
From the Press Release
Three films come together to form one overwhelming cinematic experience in THE RED RIDING TRILOGY, the widely acclaimed trio of British thrillers about a mysterious – and perhaps related – series of gruesome crimes in Northern England. The trilogy arrives in multi-disc Blu-ray and DVD sets from IFC Films and MPI Media Group on August 17th, 2010.
Based on events that occurred over a turbulent decade in the West Riding district of Yorkshire, England, THE RED RIDING TRILOGY presents a dark and disturbing world of serial murders, child abductions and police corruption.
The three films in THE RED RIDING TRILOGY are connected by recurring events and characters, chiefly a deeply conflicted police detective, Maurice Jobson (David Morrissey, The Other Boleyn Girl, Sense and Sensibility), and ruthless high-ranking official Harold Angus (Jim Carter, Alice in Wonderland, Shakespeare in Love). Three directors utilize a different method for each film – Julian Jarrold (Become Jane) shoots in 16 mm film for 1974; James Marsh (Man on Wire), in 35 mm for 1980; and Anand Tucker (Leap Year, Shopgirl), in digital video for 1983. In the end, they’ve created a modern crime epic in which no one escapes undamaged.
