"Time Bomb," starring Jake Busey ("The Hitcher," "Starship Troopers" and "Enemy of The State"), tells the tale of a shell-shocked soldier who fails to come to terms with the death of his son while struggling to figure out if the war raging around him is real or imagined.

About "Time Bomb"

"'Time Bomb' is a welcome surprise that should really please, provoke and captivate fans of psychologically intense political/military conspiracy stories. Busey gives a terrific performance..."

- David Greenberg, Home Media Magazine

"Towards Darkness," starring America Ferrera (TV's "Ugly Betty," "Real Women Have Curves" and "The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants"), captures the tense drama surrounding a kidnapped hostage and the frustration of his wound-be rescuers -- including his family, a special ops team and a man delivering the ransom. An official selection at the Tribeca Film Festival, "Towards Darkness" was released theatrically in the U.S. by Peace Arch in March, 2008. (Street date: July 22; SRP: $19.99)

About "Towards Darkness"

"(Director Antonio) Negret brings personal experience to the material; his own family endured two ordeals by kidnapping, and he works up a painfully convincing sense of sweaty desperation."

- Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide

"Admirably tough-minded, 'Towards Darkness' delivers on its foreboding title."

- Nathan Lee, Village Voice

"Boxboarders!" tells the hilarious story of two slackers who put a refrigerator box on a skateboard and accidentally invent a new extreme sport: Boxboarding. "Boxboarders!" was an official selection at the Newport Beach Film Festival. (Street date: July 29; SRP: $29.99)

"Princes of Malibu" is a box set consisting of all six episodes of the reality show, with David Foster, a harried music producer, and his uncooperative family, featuring Brody Jenner, Brandon Jenner and Spencer Pratt. (Street date: July 29; SRP: $19.99)
