Ok, as promised here are a few press releases. Sorry these are a bit late. Firstly we have a few announcements from EiV regarding some budget titles out this November.

Firstly we have Two Days in the Valley starring Danny Aiello and James Spader. From '15 Minutes' director John Herzfeld, this film is a stylish thriller about a mild-mannered hit man who is hired by a sociopathic killer to assist him on his latest job. Here's what you can expect from this disc:

• 16:9 Presentation
• Dolby Surround 2.0
• Trailer
• Featurette
• B-Roll
• Soundbites


Next up is Sniper starring Tom Berenger and 'Titanics' Billy Zane. This tense thriller is all about a spiritually corrupt Marine sergeant and an Olympics marksman who team up to take out a rebel leader and his drug lord bankroller. The DVD features a 4:3 presentation, Stereo sound, Filmographies and a gallery.

Next we have Christopher Lambert reprising his role as Connor MacLeod in Highlander 2 - The Quickening. The DVD features a Stereo soundtrack and a 4:3 presentation.

Fans of Jackie Chan will be pleased to see a DVD release of Operation Condor. This globe-trotting action comedy is one of the most expensive Hong Kong movies ever made, and stars Chan as a daredevil secret agent who sets out to recover a lost stash of Nazi gold. The disc however is sparse to say the least, featuring as it does a Mono soundtrack, and 4:3 presentation. No extras.

The final few releases are Peter's Friends, Staggered, Man Without A Face and Damage. Firstly, we have Peter's Face which marked Kenneth Branagh's third directorial effort. The disc is presented in 4:3, and features a stereo soundtrack. Staggered, is Men Behaving Badly star Martin Clunes directorial debut, in which Clunes plays unfortunate husband-to-be Neil, who wakes up naked and abandoned on a remote Scottish island hundreds of miles from the previous night's stag party (Well, who hasnt that happened to?!) The disc features a 4:3 transfer, Stereo Soundtrack with filmographies and a   gallery making up the special features.

Another directorial debut with Man Without A Face, this time with Mel Gibson taking the helm. Mel Gibson also stars as Justin McLeod, a reclusive former teacher with half his face and body badly scarred, who is mocked by local residents. The disc is presented in 16:9 Anamorphic Widescreen, and features an On Location Featurette.

Finally we have Damage which stars Jeremy Irons and Juliette Binoche. This acclaimed drama, which was adapted by playwright David Hare from Josephine Hart's best seller portrays politician Dr Stephen Fleming who falls madly in love with Anna Burton. Damage is presented in 16:9 Anamorphic Widescreen, has a stereo soundtrack, and features a trailer.

The best thing about all of these releases is that they retail at just £12.99. All of the DVD's mentioned above will be released on the 19th November.
