IPC IGNITE! UNVEILS UNCUT DVD THE ONLY GREAT MOVIE MAGAZINE

October 11, 2005

Uncut, the leading music and movie magazine from IPC ignite!, today announces the launch of Uncut DVD, a brand new quarterly magazine devoted to the world's finest movies.

Uncut DVD, the only great movie magazine, will tell the amazing stories behind classic movies both old and new, in the inimitable Uncut style. With unparalleled access to iconic movie talent, world-renowned film writers and a focus on the great visuals that make watching movies such a uniquely exciting experience, Uncut DVD will provide movie lovers with reviews, interviews and behind-the-scenes access to the greatest films ever made.

Uncut and Uncut DVD editor Allan Jones says: "Uncut has long been recognised as the authoritative magazine for music and movie lovers, but we've never had room in our multi-award-winning magazine for all the great movie stories we wanted to tell. Uncut DVD is the perfect solution, providing the proper space for us to give the full Uncut treatment to the greatest stars, most talented directors and wildest behind-the-scenes stories in celluloid history."

The debut issue features a major no-holds-barred retrospective of cover star Clint Eastwood - delivering the good, the bad and the ugly on Hollywood's greatest contemporary icon. Elsewhere, there are major features on the turbulent making of Sam Peckinpah and Steve McQueen's The Getaway, the full excess-laden story of the 80s Brat Pack and the complete history of top 70's cop show The Sweeney - plus leading movie author David Thomson on Marlon Brando and cult director Jim Jarmusch on his Johnny Depp western, Dead Man. All this and 50 pages of authoritative DVD reviews delivering the first and last word on this autumn's finest releases - whether they be classic movies, new movies, TV or music.

Uncut publishing director Andrew Sumner adds: "DVD is a fantastically versatile format which has given a new, vibrant lease of life to classic movies old and new, and caters to the insatiable appetite of movie fanatics everywhere. Uncut DVD will feed that appetite with peerless journalism from internationally-renowned critics, glorious visuals culled from 100 years of great cinema and matchless insights into the finest movies ever made. Uncut DVD is a movie magazine like no other. Quite simply, it's the only great movie magazine."

The 148-page launch issue of Uncut DVD will go on sale on October 12, priced £3.99.
