La-La Land Records and Sony Music proudly present the expanded, 2CD presentation of legendary composer Jerry Goldsmith’s (PATTON, THE OMEN, BASIC INSTINCT) powerful orchestral score to the 1995 Columbia Pictures feature film FIRST KNIGHT, starring Sean Connery, Richard Gere and Julia Ormond, directed by Jerry Zucker. Considered by many, including the maestro himself, to be one of Goldsmith’s finest scores, this important work, (presented in its film version for the first time), has been expanded over the original soundtrack release by more than a full hour, including additional alternate tracks. The original 1995 soundtrack release is also presented here, remastered. Produced by Bruce Botnick, Mike Matessino and Didier C. Deutsch, and mastered by Bruce Botnick from Mr. Botnick’s own 1st generation digital masters straight from the mixing board, this limited edition release is the definitive presentation of this masterful Goldsmith score. Exclusive, in-depth liner notes are by film music writer Jeff Bond, with additional comments from Bruce Botnick. This is a limited edition release of 5000 Units.

DC Showcase, Return Of Black Adam

dcShowcase_CMARVELWarner Premiere, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Home Video have announced DC SHOWCASE; “a series of animated shorts featuring characters from the celebrated DC Comics vault.”

“On November 9, 2010, Warner Home Video will distribute the DC SHOWCASE Original Shorts Collection, the first quartet of animated adventures featuring the never-before-seen SUPERMAN/SHAZAM! : THE RETURN OF BLACK ADAM, as a Special Edition Blu-Ray™ for $29.99 (SRP) and single disc DVD for $19.98 (SRP).
DC SHOWCASE animated shorts initially appeared as special bonus content on the 2010 slate of DC Universe Animated Original Movies. The 10- to 12-minute films include The Spectre, Jonah Hex and Green Arrow. All three titles will be presented in extended formats along with the first-ever release of  SUPERMAN/SHAZAM! : THE RETURN OF BLACK ADAM.
In SUPERMAN/SHAZAM! : THE RETURN OF BLACK ADAM, Clark Kent’s latest interview subject is street kid Billy Batson. What Clark doesn’t know is that Billy is more than a feisty kid with a lot of heart – he has been chosen by an ancient wizard to represent the good of man as the World’s Mightiest Mortal just by invoking the name of the wizard, “Shazam!”
Billy’s powers come none-too-soon, as he also discovers he’s being pursued by a centuries’ old, murderous villain, Black Adam – a foe so powerful, even Superman can’t stop him alone. The all-star cast of  SUPERMAN/SHAZAM! : THE RETURN OF BLACK ADAM is led by Jerry O’Connell (CROSSING JORDAN) as Captain Marvel, George Newbern reprising his Justice League role as Superman, Arnold Vosloo (THE MUMMY) as Black Adam and two-time Emmy Award® winner James Garner (8 SIMPLE RULES) as The Wizard.
Bruce Timm (SUPERMAN DOOMSDAY) is executive producer and Joaquim Dos Santos (JUSTICE LEAGE,  AVATAR: The Last Airbender) is director of the first series of DC Showcase titles. Michael Jelenic (WONDER WOMAN) wrote the 22-minute script.
Other shorts included on the DC SHOWCASE Original Shorts Collection:
THE SPECTRE – A detective story with an ethereal twist featuring an otherworldly character. The short is written by Steve Niles (30 DAYS OF NIGHT), and the voice cast includes Gary Cole (ENTOURAGE) and Alyssa Milano (CHARMED).
JONAH HEX – The tough-as-nails bounty hunter always gets his man – until someone else gets to him first – in this case a murderous madam who wants to steal more than just his bounty from Jonah Hex. Based on a story from the award-winning Jonah Hex comic series, and scripted by world-renowned author Joe Lansdale. The voice cast is led by Thomas Jane (HUNG), Linda Hamilton (THE TERMINATOR), Michelle Trachtenberg (MERCY, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER) and Michael Rooker (DAYS OF THUNDER).
GREEN ARROW – At the Star City International Airport to pick up his girlfriend, Oliver Queen is forced into action as Green Arrow to protect the 10-year-old Princess of Vlatava from his old nemesis Merlyn the Magnificent and the League of Assassins. Greg Weisman (Young Justice) pens this action-packed tale, which features the voices of Neal McDonough (DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) as the title character and Malcolm McDowell (ENTOURAGE) as his foe.

SHOWCASE #4 The Silver Age FLASH debuts
SHOWCASE #4 The Silver Age FLASH debuts

For those too young to remember, DC’s Showcase comic book was an anthology title in which the company would give new characters a try-out. The Silver-Age Flash, Challengers of the Unknown, The Creeper, and Adam Strange all made their debut in the comic, which lasted from 1956 to 1970 in its original run.
