Call Me By Your Name Peach Vinyl

Call Me By Your Name was adored by critics last year, and it rode that wave of acclaim all the way to a worthy Best Picture nomination. The film unfolds in Northern Italy in the summer of 1983, where a teenage boy named Elio (Timothée Chalamet) becomes enamored with an American graduate student (Armie Hammer) who comes to study and live with his family. They share a summer full of food, surprising romance, and, of course, music. And that music will be getting a special release on vinyl later this year.

The Call Me By Your Name soundtrack, featuring original songs by Sufjan Stevens, will be getting a Limited Peach Season Edition vinyl release with a peach-colored 2xLP set, including record sleeves that smell like peaches. Just make sure you don’t try to do with these records what Elio does with a certain peach in the movie.

Find out how you can get the Call Me By Your Name peach vinyl below. Read More »

Well, with the release of 20th Century Fox’s Love, Simon (which could be a future contender on this list) it is time to take a deeper look at the most beautiful, heart pounding, and memorable silver screen romantic tales that just happen to be more LOGO TV friendly than your typical offerings.

Call Me By Your Name sequel details

We’ve known that Call Me By Your Name, last year’s romantic indie drama from director Luca Guadagnino, was going to get a sequel for a little while now. The filmmaker has mentioned it a few times, but only in vague terms – until last Sunday night on the Oscars red carpet. There he revealed some new Call Me By Your Name sequel details, and seemed to confirm that actors Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet will return to reprise their roles. Read More »

Oscars 2018 Honest Trailer

This weekend brings the 90th Academy Awards to ABC to honor achievements in filmmaking from the previous year. The awards ceremony will broadcast live on Sunday, March 4 at 8pm ET/5pm PT with Hollywood’s finest glad-handing each other and kissing all the asses. Therefore it only makes sense that the Best Picture nominees get knocked down a few pegs beforehand.

The Oscars 2018 Honest Trailer lines up all nine of the movies up for this year’s top prize in film and fires off some quick jabs at them. It’s not quite as satisfying as the usual Honest Trailer (surely those will come later as they get released on home video), but it’s a good place to start for the time being. Read More »
