Beast of Burden on Blu-Ray and DVD

Beast of Burden out April 3 on Blu-Ray and DVD according to Amazon.

Summary:
The skies over the border of the United States and Mexico can be as dangerous and unforgiving as the desert below. Sean Haggerty (Daniel Radcliffe) has flown a route between the two countries many times with a secret cargo of heroin for a Mexican cartel. But tonight Sean isn’t just a drug mule – he’s a DEA informant with a stolen cartel laptop. Sean knows that his survival depends on sticking to his plan. FLY his plane. DROP his cargo. LAND his plane. RUN home to his wife. One more flight and the DEA gets what they want – a roadmap to take down the biggest cartel in Mexico. One more flight and Sean gets what he wants – witness protection and lifesaving surgery for his ailing wife. FLY. DROP. LAND. RUN. His plan is sound… until it isn’t. Sean’s wife, Jen,(Grace Gummer) is kidnapped by the cartel and the only way she makes it through the night is if Sean ditches his deal with the DEA. He’s forced to fight for his life, and Jen’s, all from the cockpit of his plane.

San Diego Jewish Film Festival

The San Diego Jewish Film Festival opens Feb. 8 with a documentary on Sammy Davis, Jr., “I’ve Gotta Be Me” and closes with Greg McLean’s “Jungle,” about the true story of a young Israeli man’s adventure in the Bolivian jungle.

For the 28th year the San Diego Jewish Film Festival once again assembles a diverse array of features, documentaries and shorts for viewers to choose from.

One of the best things about the festival is the emphasis it places on putting films into a context and bringing people and filmmakers to screenings to provide that context.

For the festival’s closing night film, “Jungle,” Australian filmmaker McLean will be on hand to discuss how a horror director known as part of the “splat pack” had his new film selected for the San Diego Jewish Film Festival.

He confessed, “It’s not an obvious match.”

But the film is based on the true story of a young Israeli man named Yossef Ghinsberg who survived 19 days on his own in a South American jungle. “Harry Potter’s” Daniel Radcliffe takes on the role and put himself through quite an ordeal to shoot the film.

McLean, as he did in his first film “Wolf Creek,” turns nature and environment into a character. In “Wolf Creek” the vast emptiness of the Australia outback provides one layer of terror in the film. In “Jungle,” the setting provides different challenges and is densely cluttered with all forms of life, some dangerous. The noise of the jungle at night almost drives Ghinsberg crazy.

Daniel Radcliffe wants to direct

Daniel Radcliffe – 28 – has accomplished more than most actors twice his age. But now he’s ready to branch outperforming in films and move on to directing. Speaking exclusively to Esquire Middle East, Radcliff admitted that he is dabbling in script-writing, but his end game is to direct.

“I’m working on scripts at the moment as I want to get into directing.”

“I don’t want somebody else to give me their script and me to mess it up, as it’s my first job; whereas if I mess up my own work I’ll feel less guilty about that.”

It there is one thing Radcliffe need not feel guilty about, however, it’s working with other people’s scripts. Since becoming a child star after being cast as the bespectacled Harry Potter, Radcliffe has reportedly earned more than AED395 million.

“I was incredibly lucky to fall into a career, and a role, where I got paid very well. I’m almost embarrassed by it, I don’t drive really so the flash car thing never happened for me. The real thing money does for me is let me not have to worry about it, which is such a massive thing for people in their lives.”
