FOXLight – DVD Releases: Week of 10-4-2010

Audio clip:

This week’s FOXLight DVD release roundup takes us from “Wax on, wax off” to “Jacket on, jacket off” in the remake of The Karate Kid. Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan take over for Ralph Maccio and Pat Morita and attempt to recreate the magic of the original, albeit on a grander scale…

Another remake of a film from around the same time as the original Karate Kid, A Nightmare On Elm Street sees Jackie Earle Haley cut a far more dark and imposing Freddy Krueger than the wink-and-nod Robert Englund version.  And yes, there will be blood…

Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley star in a tale of genetic engineering and experimentation gone horribly awry, Splice.
