The UK ‘Outlander‘ DVD will soon be released: August 31. In promotion of this a few small internet articles about Sophia Myles have surfaced. Not sure if the quotes in it are part of a full-length interview, which is yet to appear – let’s hope so – but I’ve added them already to the press archive:
Finally, we know when ‘Outlander‘ will be released on DVD in the UK: September 7, 2009. Be sure to pre-order your item today!
Today ‘Outlander‘ is released on DVD in the US! Be sure to order if you haven’t yet to see Sophia Myles in action as Viking warrior princess Freya & the – to be expected – fabulous DVD extras! The DVD should also be availble for rent at Blockbuster.
According to the Outlander fansite it is as of yet unclear when the movie will be released on BluRay in the US. However, it’s stil scheduled to be released on DVD & BluRay May 26th in Canada. A free DVD can be won on a contest over at EyeWeekly.com
Following ‘Outlander‘ on Twitter certainly brings us fabulous information. There’s another opportunity to win a VIP screening here and it leads us to an interesting and totally new over 16 minute long Making Of. The Outlander fansite has word that it will eventually turn up on the Region 2 DVD but isn’t on the recently released French DVD/Blu Ray or the upcoming Region 1 DVD/Blu Ray. It also has some nice moments of Sophia Myles so be sure to watch!
Someone uploaded a hiliarious imitation of the UK Trailer to YouTube. It’s a shot by shot re-make with action figures such as He-Man, Thundercats, Star Wars and more. Definitely a must see!
Outtakes from reviews (added to the Outlander page):
But it’s Sophia Myles who steals the show, her performance as beautiful but ballsy Viking girl Freya giving the boys a run for their money in the action stakes.
John Hurt is excellent as the watchfully wise king, as are Sophia Myles as his feisty daughter and the other-worldly James Caviezel.
Finally! ‘Outlander‘ is released in cinemas throughout Sophia’s homecountry this coming Friday, April 24!
SciFi.co.uk has a competition to win a VIP private ‘Outlander’ screening for you & your mates. To participate you have to be a UK resident, register at their website and give the correct answer to this question “What do you call a monster with one eye?” before the end of April 25. Good luck!
Also on SciFi.co.uk you can shorten the wait till Friday by watching their exclusive ‘Outlander‘ clip of the movie’s beginning.
I’ve come across some new reviews. Apparently Jonathan Ross spoke favourably about the movie in his show and The Mirror singled out Sophia Myles for praise in their short and lukewarm review: “but it moves at a fair old pace and features a great performance by Sophia Myles as a Viking princess.”
As always I’m extremely grateful for anything you UK fans might come across. Thanks for keeping your eyes open!
Oh, and Sophia’s ‘Doctor Who‘ episode “Girl in the Fireplace” re-airs tonight on BBC3 at 7pm.
