Apparently Disney's rights to distribute 20th Century Studios movies theatrically (and in home video through Galapagos Films) in Poland will revert much earlier than it would have been anticipated. That's because Imperial Cinepix is being put into liquidation:

It's currently uncertain, who will take over home entertainment distribution of Paramount and Sony movies in Poland (Galapagos Films already distributes Disney movies in HE market in Poland since 2014).

Imperial's site seems to be abandoned (still mentions the original release date of "The New Mutants"): Imperial CinePix

Also, Imperial Cinepix's YT account name has changed to 20th Century Studios Polska: 20th Century Studios Polska

Fun fact: Back when Disney didn't have its own international distribution arm, West German distribution of Disney films was handled by Fox.

I can't believe I'm bumping this thread.

Just checked around Amazon and the hefty prices and lack of availability tells me most of the stock of the Fox TV shows on DVD are going out of print in North America.

There are raised prices and limited availability for

The Simpsons
Family Guy
Futurama
Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Angel
The X-Files
The first season of Bob's Burgers

This includes the most recently released seasons for The Simpsons, Family Guy, and The X-Files.

The titles that appear to still be in print are the Manufactured On Demand ones including the later seasons of Bob's Burgers, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show. Otherwise Disney is putting it all back in the vault.

Yet another defense for physical media.

There might be possibly Hulu will finally stream Family Guy American Dad, and The Cleveland Show Uncensored with unbeeped Swearing and extended scenes if happening. i also heard Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story a Direct To Dvd version never made it's streaming premiere so i hope Hulu add it soon

Ever since moving to TBS nearly every instance of the "S-word" in AD! has been uncensored (only on the TBS episodes). This is because content standards for cable are a little more lax for even TV-14 shows.

This was bound to happen. Now I'm wondering if back catalog movies could also be affected eventually. It'll be interesting to see if evergreen titles like Fight Club, Die Hard, or Rocky Horror Picture Show continue to be mainstays on home video.

Not to mention Aliens, Predator, and Alien Nation which was said to get a reboot. That's before Will Smith's Bright. He did that before when they were planning on rebooting Greatest American Hero, then comes Hancock.

Wow someone actually replied to my failed logo thread...
Kat Hudson's Twitter account was hacked. As such, she started a new account (KatHudsonArt).

Matt Vogel's podcast sounds like a lot of fun just from this sound clip.

Marge Simpson is trending on Twitter. I won't say why, though.
I wonder if the mid 30's Fleischer cartoons with the 3d backgrounds with 2d characters was an inspiration for Paper Mario
