Ultimate DVD returns and we’ve brought a friend…

Keeping up with the continuing evolution of the film and home entertainment industries, Ultimate DVD magazine has teamed up with Film Review Special to take a giant leap into the future of film magazines…

Mission: Impossible 3 Exclusive!

M:I-3 writer and director JJ Abrams tells us more about the under-wraps production than ever before.
He also discusses the second season of that little show he created about a group of people stuck on an island – you may have heard of it, it’s called Lost or something.
If you want to know about the first big blockbuster of the year, then here’s where you start.

Tom HanksThe Da Vinci Code
• As Sony’s star-studded movie heads towards theatres this year, we look behind the story to the real facts. Did Jesus have a baby?
Find out what we think…

Keira KnightleyKeira Knightley
• The British actress discusses her roles in both Pride and Prejudice and Domino and why she thinks that none of the directors she’s worked with wanted her.

She also makes a cast iron promise that will please more than a few sex-starved boyfriends

Joss Whedon directsSerenity
• So what was the best Sci-Fi flick of 2005? Star Wars?
Forget it!
The crown goes to writer/director Joss Whedon and his back-to-basics Space movie.

In our packed feature he explains just why his concept worked so well. We’re thinking the succession of lovely actresses may have had a hand in its success, but that’s just us.

Charlize Theron
• The Oscar-winning actress tells us why she wanted to slip into skin-tight lycra and head to the future in Sci-Fi flick Æon Flux

Jessica Alba
• You’ve seen her in Fantastic Four and Sin City, now see even more of her in Into the Blue. The curvaceous star tells us why she wanted to take part in this bikini-filled thriller

The Fog (2006)
• Gorgeous Lost star Maggie Grace and Hollywood actress Selma Blair discuss the Horror remake that will have fans of the genre leaping out of their pants

Transporter 2
• British action star Jason Statham (yes, he’s an action star now) tells us why his action sequel is no Passion of the Christ

Movie Downloads
• We look at the phenomenon which is certain to change the theatrical and home entertainment markets beyond all recognition in the next few years

The Top 25 Thrillers
• With little to do over the holiday weeks we sat down and watched 25 of our favourite thrillers. Then we argued endlessly about which was best. What we ended up with is the definitive list…!

  • Girls on Film
    Our ingenious new feature where we give glamour models the opportunity of reviewing DVDs and film. This month Britain’s sexiest cover star Charlene Hart give The Perfect Catch a good going over

  • Competitions
    We’ve got an incredible Archos 40-Gig Multimedia player to give away and we also give new film-makers the opportunity to get your upcoming film noticed within our pages

  • The Last Word
    Quentin Tarantino closes the book on this incredible issue as he discusses his feelings about the DVD and theatrical worlds as well as his plans for the Kill Bill movies
