Turbine Media Group will finally be releasing the German version of Malcolm in the Middle (Malcolm Mittendrin) on DVD on October 24, 2014.
A Collector’s Box with Seasons 1-3 will contain all 63 episodes on 10 DVDs, but each season can also be bought separately. All episodes come with the original English audio and a German-dubbed track. Unlike the French releases, however, the episodes have not been subtitled in either German or English.
The image transfers will be identical to the French versions. A unique feature of these releases is that while all episodes are presented in the original 16:9 widescreen-format, there is also a menu option to reduce them to the 4:3 format in which they were first aired on TV.
The special features for all seasons will correspond to the French releases, so include the original American bonuses for S1 and the French additions for subsequent seasons. These features are all in English with optional German subtitles.
Depending on sales for the first 3 seasons, the following seasons will hopefully come out in early 2015.
Just to make sure, here’s a list of all special features:
Pilot episode in extended director’s cut + commentary track
Bryan Cranston explains the widescreen version
Alternative cold opens
US TV commercials
45-minute-special documentary about “Malcolm“’s origins (A Stroke of Genius)
3 team-Audio commentaries (160 minutes)
Short documentary on Erik Per Sullivan (Dewey) (Dewey’s Day Job)
Tour of the Malcolm-house by the boys
Behind the scenes with the Malcolm-crew
Episode ‘Company Picnic’ in extended director’s cut
German-speaking fans can join a special Facebook page on the series created by Turbine, which will publish various screenshots and fun facts, but also a generous selection of publicity images frequently taken from our site:
At the Emmy Awards 2014, Bryan won his fourth Emmy Award for ‘Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series’ for his role as Walter White in Breaking Bad. Emmy win and acceptance speech can be viewed here.
Breaking Bad also won an Emmy in the category ‘Outstanding Drama Series’. Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn won an Emmy in the categories ‘Outstanding Supporting Actor’ and ‘Outstanding Supporting Actress’ for their roles in Breaking Bad.
During the announcement for ‘Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series’ Bryan had a little surprise in store for Julia Louis Dreyfus who said she couldn’t remember him being on Seinfeld… click here to see the video
“With this book, I want to tell the stories of my life and reveal the secrets and lies that I lived with for six years shooting ‘Breaking Bad,’ ” Bryan Cranston said in the press release announcing his upcoming memoir. The as-yet-untitled book will be published by Scribner in 2015.
Cranston won three best actor Emmy Awards portraying Walter White, the cancer-stricken chemistry teacher who turns to making methamphetamine to support his family. In the show’s five seasons, White — who in a desperate moment came up with the pseudonym Heisenberg — went from everyman to drug kingpin.
The role has become iconic — Heisenberg T-shirts are available just about everywhere, including Wal-Mart. But Cranston, 58, has had a long career as an actor whose skills allowed him to play all kinds of roles.
He was the father in the goofy TV comedy “Malcolm in the Middle,” quietly appeared in the Oscar-winning drama “Argo” and is currently portraying Lyndon Johnson on Broadway.
Sadly due to various real world commitments I can’t find enough time to keep this site updated with news/content.
We have had many awesome people contribute their time to this site over its many years, without these people we would be nothing.
This site isn’t going anywhere, It’s not going to be a fan site that dies away, however it would be great to have new content added on a regular basis.
We are looking for someone who can commit to posting on a regular basis, with news/interesting content. Ideally someone with good basic English and obviously good knowledge of MITM and the actors and their projects.
This role would also lead on to that person becoming a site Administrator if they wished for a bigger commitment.
Please send me a messageexplaining in a few sentences why you would be good for the role. Prior involvement in our site makes for a strong candidate, but we welcome new members of our community also.
Think of something super big? OK, got it? Double it… This is how big this news is.
In short, Season 1 of Malcolm in the Middle will be released on DVD in the UK (Region 2) in April 2012. Followed by a season a month until a final box-set near Christmas 2012. Yes, all seasons by the end of the year!
It’s being released by Fabulous Films in the UK. They have bought the UK (Region 2) rights for the whole series from FOX and specialize in releasing TV/movies that have had music issues in the past. The UK has a distinct advantage over the US as they don’t have such complicated music licensing issues. Yes, the reason we haven’t seen seasons in the US is all about music license costs, as we have always known.
The music will NOT be changed.
Season 1, is planned to be a very similar to the US release with special features to be confirmed. The other seasons are still in the planning stages, artwork etc is yet to be done. It will be sold through Amazon UK, HMV (UK retail store) and others.
Blu-ray isn’t currently on the cards, but a possibility in the future, no details on it. I also don’t currently know about widescreen and how it’ll apply to the seasons.
But I live in the US?! (or wherever) – Amazon UK delivers to many countries so there is a good chance you’ll be able to order.
This is thanks to Richard Walker of Fabulous Films who broke the news to me, he needs our support on this project, how great is that? We can be part of the DVD release!More on this when I know.
We reported back in January and July of 2010 on Impulse, a pre-apocalyptic short film starring Chris Masterson (Francis) as the protagonist, David. After making its debut at the LA Shorts Fest in July 2010, the short is now available for download on iTunes.
Today iTunes® releases “Impulse”, a short film about the end of the world starring Chris Masterson from FOX’s hit show “Malcolm in the Middle”. The film, which is downloadable for $1.99, follows a man who sets off on a perilous journey with only 30 minutes before the end of the world.
“Impulse” debuted at the LA Shorts Fest before a panel of judges headed by producer Paula Wagner (“War of the Worlds”, “Mission: Impossible III”). The film was later invited to the Sofia Independent Film Festival in Bulgaria for its international premiere, where it played alongside an exclusive selection of films including the Coen Brothers’ “A Serious Man” and the Oscar®-winning films “The New Tenants” and Best Picture Winner “The Hurt Locker”.
“Impulse” is simultaneously airing on video-on-demand and ShortsHD, a channel which was recently launched to 40 million homes worldwide on DirecTV. ShortsHD is also available on Dish Network and AT&T U-verse. Programming schedules are available at www.shorts.tv.
Young filmmakers Scott Beck & Bryan Woods, who are currently writing and directing a scripted pilot for MTV, directed the large-scale production in their home state of Iowa. Production was rounded out with services by world-class companies Skywalker Sound and Company 3. Beck & Woods’ banner Bluebox Limited Films produced the film, alongside Christy Sullivan and Darren Brandl, who most recently produced “The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernandez” with Academy Award-winner Ernest Borgnine (“The Wild Bunch”, “Marty”).
Happy birthday to Erik Per Sullivan, who is 20 today! Everyone at the Malcolm in the Middle Voting community wishes him a great day.
We haven’t heard too much from Erik recently, his Twitter account having been quiet since April (and that was after a multi-month hiatus), but we hope to hear some more soon! (We miss you on Twitter, Erik!)
To celebrate his birthday, here is Erik, quite some time ago now, playing ‘The Little Boy’ in the short film Once Not Far From Home from 2004.
Justin Berfield (Reese) role as Chief Creative Officer in Richard Branson’s Virgin Produced TV and film production company means he is the one overseeing the creative direction of the company. And clearly he’s been at work, as Virgin Produced presents its first feature release, Limitless, premiering in the US on March 18th, 2011.
Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro star in Limitless, a paranoia-fuelled action thriller about an unsuccessful writer whose life is transformed by a top-secret “smart drug” that allows him to use 100% of his brain and become a perfect version of himself.
His enhanced abilities soon attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life in this suspenseful and provocative film.
Aspiring author Eddie Morra (Cooper) is suffering from chronic writer’s block, but his life changes instantly when an old friend introduces him to NZT, a revolutionary new pharmaceutical that allows him to tap his full potential. With every synapse crackling, Eddie can recall everything he has ever read, seen or heard, learn any language in a day, comprehend complex equations and beguile anyone he meets — as long as he keeps taking the untested drug.
Soon Eddie takes Wall Street by storm, parlaying a small stake into millions. His accomplishments catch the eye of mega-mogul Carl Van Loon (De Niro), who invites him to help broker the largest merger in corporate history. But they also bring Eddie to the attention of people willing to do anything to get their hands on his stash if NZT. With his life in jeopardy and the drug’s brutal side effects taking their toll, Eddie dodges mysterious stalkers, a vicious gangster and intense police investigation as he attempts to hang on to his dwindling supply long enough to outwit his enemies.
Limitless starts Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, The A-Team), Oscar winner Robert De Niro (Raging Bull, Taxi Driver), Abbie Cornish (Bright Star), Anna Friel (You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger), Andrew Howard (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Johnny Whitworth (3:IO to Yuma) and Thomas Arana (The Bourne Supremacy).
