"How I Caught My Killer" 

The Hulu Original Docu-series, "How I Caught My Killer" is now available to stream, only on Hulu. 

TRAILER: HERE

SYNOPSIS: “How I Caught My Killer” is a true-crime docu-series that highlights the real-life stories behind unique homicide cases with in-depth interviews, authentic archival material and cinematic recreations all packaged together into a fresh spin in the genre.

Whether it’s a fraught letter to a friend, an urgent text message detailing a heated argument, a private diary entry describing a horrifying experience, or an ominous social media post revealing a motive for murder…these victims all leave a case-breaking clue that will one day help to solve their crime.

Every curated case details a complex portrait of a human being whose life was cut short by a killer that would have escaped justice if it hadn’t been for the victim’s own actions. Ultimately, the twists and turns of the investigations into these victim-solved crimes expose an awful truth in America today: our systemic failures as a nation all too frequently deny many citizens justice. Each episode forces us to confront the harsh reality that our system is blind to many underserved and invisible communities that make up a disproportionate percentage of the people who lose their lives to homicide every year.


CREDITS: Hulu Original "How I Caught My Killer" is executive produced by David Karabinas, Evan Goldstein, Chip Rives, Rick Cikowski, and Brad Bernstein of Texas Crew Productions; Greg Spring and Ivy Brown of Spring Theory. Robby O'Neil of Texas Crew Production is co-executive producer.

After a successful 2022 campaign that saw SPAWN capture the title of best-selling comic book once again. Todd McFarlane is finding new ways to bring exciting talent to his roster with his Artist Spotlight series.

 



Tempe, Ariz., February 1, 2023, After a successful 2022 campaign that saw SPAWN capture the title of best-selling comic book once again. Todd McFarlane is finding new ways to bring exciting talent to his roster with his Artist Spotlight series. 

Each month of 2023 will feature a NEW spotlight artist who will create covers for the 4 Spawn Universe titles: SPAWN, Gunslinger Spawn, Scorched, and King Spawn. 

David Mack started the series in January, with his covers being met with high fan praise. 

Simone Bianchi is up for the month of February, bringing his own style to each title. Bianchi's process consists of creating full size acrylic paintings of each cover. The covers are between 22’ x 16’ and 25’ x 18’. Their preliminaries are roughly 18’ x 12
’. 

When asked about why he decided to take part in the Artist Spotlight Series, Bianchi had this to say:

“I got a message from Todd and the decision was made even before starting talking. He is one of those people with a halo of energy you absorb by just talking to. Also, he knows exactly how much creative liberty and freedom you need to create your best art. I could work with no pressure, the right indications, but also with the confidence of him and Thomas, that are the ideal conditions to give your best. Not secondary of course, the importance Spawn has had as a character since my teenage comic book collection, so.. there was never a doubt whether accepting the project or not."


Bianchi has also had the honor of having his covers selected to be placed in the Cart Gallery in Via del Gesù, Italy, a few steps away from the Pantheon.

Stay tuned to Todd McFarlane and McFarlane_Comics_official social channels for BTS videos, interviews, and process explanationsfrom Simone Bianchi.

SPAWN has been the hottest current title in recent memory, usurping Marvel and DC to become the best-selling comic of the lat TWO YEARS and has continued to live up to high expectations. The Artist Spotlight series will look to bring new perspectives and exciting new covers for fans to collect throughout 2023.  



See Below for a CLOSER LOOK at the upcoming covers...

The title's 1992 debut sold 1.7 million copies, an unprecedented feat for an independent comic. In 2019, McFarlane made history with "SPAWN #300" and record-breaking "SPAWN #301". The release of which earned the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD for the world's "Longest-running Creator-owned Superhero Comic Book Series.”

Dragonslayer Debuting on 4K Ultra HD™, in a Limited-Edition 4K Ultra HD SteelBook®, and on Blu-ray™ March 21, 2023 Releases Boast Over an Hour of New Bonus Content Plus Commentary by Director Matthew Robbins and Guest Guillermo del Toro.

 



 

 

Newly restored in eye-popping 4K Ultra HD under the supervision of director/co-writer Matthew Robbins, the fan-favorite classic DRAGONSLAYER arrives for the first time ever on 4K Ultra HD, in a Limited Edition Collector’s 4K Ultra HD SteelBook, and on Blu-ray March 21, 2023 from Paramount Home Entertainment.

 

An essential cinematic adventure with groundbreaking and Oscar®-nominated visual effects*DRAGONSLAYER has been restored with exceptional picture and sound to bring the spectacular fantasy to life for a new generation.  Legendary visual effects supervisor Phil Tippett (Star Wars, Jurassic Park) created the film’s special effects, pioneering a new technique called “go motion” that incorporates blurring into each frame for more realistic images.  Vermithrax Pejorative, the fire-breathing creature at the center of the story, was created using a combination of go motion and 16 massive dragon puppets.  

 

DRAGONSLAYER continues to win over fans more than 40 years after its initial release, not the least of which is Guillermo del Toro who joins director and longtime collaborator Matthew Robbins for an entertaining and illuminating new commentary.  The 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray releases also include more than an hour of additional new special features as detailed below:

 


THE SLAYER OF ALL DRAGONS 

Step back in time with director/co-writer Matthew Robbins, dragon supervisor Phil Tippett, and ILM’s visual effects master Dennis Muren as they revisit DRAGONSLAYER.  Their stories and memories take viewers deep into the dragon’s fiery lair as they recount the challenging journey from concept to screen. 

 

WELCOME TO CRAGGANMORE 

A look back at the impact of Star Wars and its visual effects on Hollywood, the origin ofDRAGONSLAYER and its screenplay, and the film’s casting. 

 

A LONG WAY TO URLAND 

Pre-production begins in England as the film takes shape.  The young filmmakers seek gritty medieval realism through the production design, cinematography, and costumes. 

 

VERMITHRAX PEJORATIVE  

The filmmakers take on the daunting task of bringing a dragon to life like never before, utilizing every ounce of movie magic available including Phil Tippett’s breakthrough go-motion animation, cutting-edge practical animatronics, visual effects, and compositing. 

 

INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE 

Production woes at every turn, horrific baby dragons, and the challenge of creating Vermithrax’s iconic lair plague the filmmakers.  Phil Tippett offers a mini-masterclass on crafting powerful creature performance through detailed animation. 

 

THE FINAL BATTLE 

The team faces the unique challenges of the film’s stage-bound climax, filmed entirely against a blue screen.  Director Matthew Robbins looks back on the incredible work done in the final stages of film editing, the beautifully dense sound design, and Alex North’s amazing score, which utilized pieces from his legendary unused 2001: A Space Odyssey score. 

 

 

The DRAGONSLAYER 4K Ultra HD Limited-Edition SteelBook includes the film on 4K Ultra HD, the bonus content detailed above, and boasts collectible packaging with a removable O-sleeve featuring an image of the theatrical poster, which, when removed, reveals original artwork of the final battle with Vermithrax Pejorative.  The package also includes access to a Digital copy of the film.



 The 4K Ultra HD release includes the film on 4K Ultra HD, the bonus content, and access to a Digital copy of the film.  The Blu-ray includes the film in high definition, along with the bonus content and access to a Digital copy of the film.

 

All three releases also include the original theatrical trailer and screen tests.

 

Synopsis

Set in sixth-century England, an ill-tempered, fire-breathing creature—ominously known as Vermithrax Pejorative—terrorizes its citizens until a young sorcerer’s apprentice named Galen (Peter MacNicol) is reluctantly tasked with confronting the beast. For Galen to succeed, it will take more than magic to defeat the dragon.
