VIZ Media Revives Classic Manga "Urusei Yatsura" in a "Signature Edition"

VIZ MEDIA ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF URUSEI YATSURA SIGNATURE EDITIONS

Rumiko Takahashi’s Iconic Manga To Be Released in English In Its Entirety For The First Time Ever

San Francisco, CA – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), a premier company in the fields of publishing, animation distribution, and global entertainment licensing, announces the return of the classic manga comedy URUSEI YATSURA in all-new deluxe editions on February 19th, 2019.

Set for publication under the VIZ Signature imprint, URUSEI YATSURA depicts the hilarious misadventures of an unlucky human boy who meets a beautiful alien princess. The series is rated ‘T+’ for Older Teens; Volume 1 will carry a print MSRP of $19.99 U.S. / $26.99 CAN. URUSEI YATSURA’s volumes will present 400 pages of content in the larger VIZ Signature trim size. The complete series is scheduled for English publication by VIZ Media on a quarterly basis.

In URUSEI YATSURA, beautiful space alien princess Lum invades Earth on her UFO, and unlucky Ataru Moroboshi’s world gets turned upside down! Will Lum become Earth’s electrifying new leader? Or will Ataru somehow miraculously save Earth from space alien onslaught?

“URUSEI YATSURA is an iconic manga series, and until now, has never been fully published in English,” says Amy Yu, Editor. “Our new VIZ Signature editions allow readers to enjoy the complete URUSEI YATSURA for the first time ever. We hope new and veteran manga fans will add this legendary series to their collections!”

The spotlight on Rumiko Takahashi’s career began in 1978 when she won an honorable mention in Shogakukan’s prestigious New Comic Artist Contest for Those Selfish Aliens. Later that same year, her boy-meets-alien comedy series, URUSEI YATSURA, was serialized in Weekly Shonen Sunday. This phenomenally successful manga series was adapted into anime format and spawned a TV series and half a dozen theatrical-release movies, all incredibly popular in their own right. Takahashi followed up the success of her debut series with one blockbuster hit after another—MAISON IKKOKU ran from 1980 to 1987, RANMA 1/2 from 1987 to 1996, and INUYASHA from 1996 to 2008. Other notable works include MERMAID SAGA, RUMIC THEATER, ONE-POUND GOSPEL, and RIN-NE.

Takahashi was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame in 2018. She won the prestigious Shogakukan Manga Award twice in her career, once for Urusei Yatsura in 1981 and the second time for Inuyasha in 2002. A majority of the Takahashi canon has been adapted into other media such as anime, live-action TV series, and film. Takahashi’s manga, as well as the other formats her work has been adapted into, have continued to delight generations of fans around the world. Distinguished by her wonderfully endearing characters, Takahashi’s work adeptly incorporates a wide variety of elements such as comedy, romance, fantasy, and martial arts. While her series are difficult to pin down into one simple genre, the signature style she has created has come to be known as the “Rumic World.” Rumiko Takahashi is an artist who truly represents the very best from the world of manga.

Review: "The Meg" is Enjoyably Cheesy

TRASH IN MY EYE No. 1 (of 2019) by Leroy Douresseaux

[This review was originally posted on Patreon.]

The Meg (2018)
Running time:  113 minutes (1 hour, 53 minutes)
MPAA – PG-13 for action/peril, bloody images and some language
DIRECTOR:  Jon Turteltaub
WRITERS:  Dean Georgaris and Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber (based on the novel, Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror, by Steve Alten)
PRODUCERS:  Belle Avery (p.g.a.), Lorenzo di Bonaventura (produced by) (p.g.a.) and Colin Wilson
CINEMATOGRAPHER:  Tom Stern (D.o.P.)
EDITORS:  Steven Kemper and Kelly Matsumoto
COMPOSER:  Harry Gregson-Williams

SCI-FI/HORROR/ACTION

Starring:  Jason Statham, Bingbing Li, Rainn Wilson, Cliff Curtis, Winston Chao, Sophia Cai, Ruby Rose, Page Kennedy, Robert Taylor, Olafur Darri, Olafsson, Jessica McNamee, and Masi Osa

The Meg is a 2018 science fiction, horror, and action film from director Jon Turteltaub and stars Jason Statham.  This movie is loosely based on Steve Alten's 1997 novel, Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror.  A Chinese-American co-production, The Meg film focuses on a man who must save a group of people trapped in a sunken submersible vessel damaged by a prehistoric creature that no one but he believes still exists.

The Meg opens in the Phillippine Trench where there is a “deep sea rescue mission.”  Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) leads the mission to save the sailors aboard the damaged nuclear submarine, the “SSBN Rogue.”  Something attacks the Rogue, and Taylor is forced to leave some of his own men behind where they die when the submarine explodes.

Five years later, the story moves to the underwater research facility, “Mana One,” where its billionaire founder, Jack Morris (Rainn Wilson), has just arrived to meet the facility's lead researcher, Dr. Zhang (Winston Chao).  Morris hopes to witness a mission supervised by Zhang's daughter, Suyin (Bingbing Li), an oceanographer, in which a submersible will explore a previously unknown part of the Mariana trench.  Not long into the mission, a very large creature attacks and damages the submersible, forcing it down into a place from which it will be hard to rescue.

Zhang and one of his top crew members, Mac (Cliff Curtis), head to Samut Prakan, Thailand, to convince Jonas Taylor, retired since the SSBN Rogue incident, to help them rescue the Mana One's submersible.  Although Taylor initially refuses, he accepts the mission when he learns that someone close to him is trapped in the submersible and that its crew is being menaced by a prehistoric creature that Taylor believes to still exist today, the giant shark creature, the Megalodon.

The Meg is an entertaining, but not particularly good B-movie.  The Meg manages to be more than mediocre because of some highly-entertaining and thoroughly thrilling action sequences.  It seems to me that the director, Jon Turtletaub, was reluctant to really go wild with what is essentially a monster movie.  If what paleontologists say is true, the Megalodon was the terror of the seas, yet this cinematic “Meg” only commits a fraction of the terror that it could.  Maybe, it is the screenwriters' fault that this screenplay does not seem particularly imaginative.

The characters are not imaginative, either.  The only characters presented with any depth or personality are Jason Statham's Jonas Taylor and Bingbing Li's Suyin, and even they are little more than puffed up stock characters.  Taylor is the white savior slash rescue-mission-guy damaged by a recent “mistake” who will find redemption in getting this new opportunity to save some people.  Suyin is a by-the-book smart-Asian-cookie, but at least the filmmakers let her get in some girl-hero action time.

There is a cute kid, Meiying (Sophia Cai), that steals her scenes, and there is also the stereotypical Black guy, DJ (Page Kennedy), who is constantly letting everyone know that he did not sign up for fighting or being eaten by a prehistoric monster shark.  The Meg is a B-movie, a $130 million dollar-budgeted B-movie, but a B-movie, still.  And if you enjoy movies about sharks terrorizing humans, especially humans too stupid to avoid them (and, dear readers, I do enjoy such movies), then, The Meg is must-see shark-scare entertainment.

"Leave No Trace," "A Very English Scandal" Top 31st Scripter Awards

USC Libraries Scripter Honors “Leave No Trace” and “A Very English Scandal”

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The authors and screenwriters behind the film “Leave No Trace,” and the television miniseries “A Very English Scandal” received the 31st-annual USC Libraries Scripter Award at the Feb. 9, 2019 ceremony at USC’s Doheny Memorial Library.

    “This is our 31st year celebrating the coming together of the literary and cinematic arts and of honoring the USC Libraries’ essential place in the intellectual, cultural and creative life of the Trojan Family.”

The Scripter Award recognizes the year’s best adaptation of the written word for the screen, and includes feature film and television adaptations.

In her welcoming remarks, USC Libraries Dean Catherine Quinlan said, “This is our 31st year celebrating the coming together of the literary and cinematic arts and of honoring the USC Libraries’ essential place in the intellectual, cultural and creative life of the Trojan Family.”

In the television category, the selection committee chose “A Very English Scandal,” written for the screen by Russell T Davies for the streaming network Amazon Prime. It is based on John Preston’s 2016 nonfiction book of the same name, which details the 1970s scandal involving British Liberal Party leader Jeremy Thorpe and his wayward attempts to silence a former lover.

Davies thanked Preston for “providing such a brilliant source book for me to work from” as well as Thorpe and Norman Scott, for being “so mad, so fascinating, and I hope so forgiven by all of us now by the passing of time.”

Due to a tie in the nominating round, six television shows were eligible this year. The other finalists were the writers behind episodes of “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” (distributed by FX), “The Handmaid’s Tale” (Hulu), “The Looming Tower” (Hulu), “Patrick Melrose” (Showtime), and “Sharp Objects” (HBO).

In the film category, the winners were writer Peter Rock, author of the novel “My Abandonment,” and screenwriters Debra Granik and Anne Rosellini, who adapted for the screen Rock’s work, itself an adaptation of a 2004 local news report about a Vietnam veteran and his young daughter found living off the grid in the forest near Portland, Oregon. “Leave No Trace” was released by Bleecker Street.

In accepting the award, Rock paid tribute to the screenwriters. “Debra Granik, Anne Rosellini and I walked through Forest Park in Portland, Oregon, and talked about possibilities, so I want to deeply thank them for the heart and inspiration they brought into making a great film.”

The other finalist films were “Black Panther” (distributed by Disney), “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” (Fox Searchlight), “The Death of Stalin” (IFC Films), and “If Beale Street Could Talk” (Annapurna Pictures).

Earlier in the evening, Quinlan honored Dr. George Isaacs as the 2019 Ex Libris Award winner for his extraordinary support of the USC Libraries, which resulted in the creation of the George E. Isaacs Dean’s Suite in Doheny Memorial Library. Accepting the award on his behalf was his son Mark Isaacs, who said, “My father, George Isaacs, is a long-time and enthusiastic supporter of the University of Southern California, including the Libraries. Why the Libraries? Books deliver knowledge, joy and understanding. Very few products in the world today can make that claim.”

In-kind donors to the event included Mariner Books, Other Press, and Urth Caffé.

Scripter began in 1988, co-founded by USC Libraries board members Glenn Sonnenberg and Marjorie Lord. For more information about Scripter—including additional images from the ceremony—visit scripter.usc.edu.

WaterTower Music Released “The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part” Soundtrack and Score Albums February 7, 2019

Soundtrack Album Features New Music from Beck Feat. Robyn & The Lonely Island, Dillon Francis Feat. T-Pain & Lay Lay, Tiffany Haddish & Will Arnett, Stephanie Beatriz, Matt & Kim, and More

Score Album Features New Music from Award-Winning Composer Mark Mothersbaugh

BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WaterTower Music announced the February 7, 2019, digital release of two albums of music from the exciting new animated adventure “The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part,” the much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed global box office phenomenon that started it all, “The LEGO Movie.” Both a soundtrack album and a score album were released on February 7, the day before the film was released to theaters nationwide from Warner Bros. Pictures.

The new music featured on the soundtrack collection includes the end title song “Super Cool,” from Beck feat. Robyn & The Lonely Island, the infectious “Catchy Song” by Dillon Francis feat. T- Pain & That Girl Lay Lay and two songs performed in the film by Tiffany Haddish – the solo “Not Evil” and a hilarious duet with Will Arnett entitled “Gotham City Guys.” Stephanie Beatriz performs on two songs - the solo “5:15” and, as part of a LEGO cast performance, one of the two reimagined versions of “Everything is Awesome” featured on the soundtrack. The second version of the song, titled “Everything Is Awesome (Tween Dream Remix),” is offered by comedy twosome Garfunkel & Oates. “Come Together Now” is performed by indie dance duo Matt & Kim; Yossi Guetta, Esther Guetta & Fiora Cutler perform “Welcome to the Systar System”; and Superorganism rounds out the album with “Hello Me and You.”

Five of the songs on the soundtrack were written by Canadian comedian Jon LaJoie.

He is the co-creator and front man for the seminal new wave band DEVO, which is one of the 2019 nominees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Mothersbaugh is an award-winning film and television composer who has scored huge hits like “The Royal Tenenbaums,” “Rushmore,” “The LEGO Movie,” “Thor: Ragnarok” and the iconic television series “Rugrats.”

"Sailor Moon SuperS: The Movie" Arrives on Blu-ray/DVD

VIZ MEDIA ANNOUNCES THE HOME MEDIA RELEASE OF SAILOR MOON SUPERS: THE MOVIE

SAILOR MOON SUPERS: THE MOVIE Debuts In A New HD Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack That Also Includes “Ami’s First Love” Bonus Featurette

San Francisco, CA — VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), a premier company in the fields of publishing, animation distribution, and global entertainment licensing, announces the release of the third SAILOR MOON film, SAILOR MOON SUPERS: THE MOVIE on February 12th, 2019.

SAILOR MOON SUPERS: THE MOVIE will debut as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and as a Standard Edition DVD Set. The Combo Pack will carry an MSRP of $29.98 U.S. / $34.99 CAN; the Standard Edition DVD Set will carry an MSRP of $19.98 U.S. / $24.99 CAN. 

Around the world, children are disappearing – and the culprits are not of this world! The evil Queen Badiane plots to trap Earth in a dark energy field called the Black Dream Hole, powered by the sweet sugar energy produced from the dreams of children. Meanwhile, Chibi-Usa befriends Perle, a new kid who seems to have grown fond of the town's warm and friendly atmosphere. Their peace is short-lived when the town's children, including Chibi-Usa, start sleepwalking out of their homes! Sailor Moon, Perle and Sailor Guardians must now fight to save the lost children before the enemy can place the world into an eternal sleep that's definitely not sweet!

“The Sailor Guardians face a dangerous threat in their third feature film adventure,” says Brian Ige, VIZ Media’s Vice President of Animation. “We are excited to give fans the opportunity to add this film to their home media collections with all the vivid clarity of HD.”

Bonus features for the Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack include the “Ami’s First Love” featurette along with exclusive English voice cast interviews and English credits. The film is presented in crisp 1080p HD resolution. Bonus features for the Standard Edition DVD Set also include the featurette and English credits.

Audiences are invited to enjoy the first two SAILOR MOON feature films, the SAILOR MOON anime series as well as SAILOR MOON CRYSTAL, which are now available from VIZ Media as Limited Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo Packs and multi-disc Standard Edition DVD Sets.
