Mitchie (Demi Lovato) knows she’s got what it takes to take the music world by storm. Her dream of spending a summer at exclusive Camp Rock seems to be coming true when her mother gets them both jobs at the camp as cooks. Arriving with stars in her eyes, Mitchie finds her confidence shaken by the stiff competition, especially when it comes to getting the attention of teen pop star Shane (Joe Jonas), the camp’s celebrity instructor.

His curiosity about her identity sets off a Cinderella-style search for the unknown dream girl, while Mitchie must learn to overcome her own insecurity and step into the spotlight.

Disney’s “Camp Rock” debuted as Disney Channel’s No. 2 original movie of all-time in Total Viewers (8.9 million), behind only last summer’s record-setting “Disney’s High School Musical 2.” In fact, “Camp Rock” opened as the net’s No. 1 non-sequel DCOM of all-time in Total Viewers besting the premiere telecast of “High School Musical.”
NIXON: ELECTION YEAR EDITION – Oliver Stone’s acclaimed film biography of former U.S. President Richard Milhous Nixon, NIXON, comes to DVD in the ELECTION YEAR EDITION, and for the first time ever on Blu-ray Disc, August 19, 2008 from Buena Vista Worldwide Home Entertainment.
Just in time for the 2008 presidential election season, Stone’s critically acclaimed story of one of the most loathed and admired presidents in American history, comes in a two-disc special edition with bonus features including a never-before-seen documentary examining Nixon’s rise and fall featuring new interviews with notable Washington insiders including White House Counsel to President Nixon, John Dean and author Gore Vidal. For this special Election Year Edition, the director’s cut has been fully re-mastered and includes remixed audio and a new, pristine high definition video transfer on Blu-ray Disc, resulting in the most visually compelling and best-sounding version of this film to date.
Three-time Oscar® winner Oliver Stone (1989 winner for Best Director, Born on the Fourth of July; 1986 winner for Best Director, Platoon, 1978 winner for Best Adapted Screenplay, Midnight Express) takes an unflinching look at the public and private lives of one of the key political players of the 20th century. Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins (Best Actor, 1991, Silence of the Lambs) is riveting as Nixon, who battled his way into the White House, only to be driven out in one of the most notorious scandals in American history.
Oscar® nominees Joan Allen (Best Actress, 2000, The Contender; Best Supporting Actress, 1996, The Crucible; Best Supporting Actress, 1995, Nixon), Ed Harris (Best Supporting Actor, 2002, The Hours; Best Actor, 2000, Pollock; Best Supporting Actor, 1998, The Truman Show; Best Supporting Actor; 1995, Apollo 13) and James Woods (Best Supporting Actor, 1996, Ghosts of Mississippi; Best Actor, 1986, Salvador) head up a phenomenal supporting cast.
Nominated for four Academy Awards® (Best Actor [Anthony Hopkins], Best Supporting Actress [Joan Allen], Best Original Screenplay [Stephen J Rivele, Christopher Wilkinson and Oliver Stone] and Best Original Dramatic Score [John Williams], 1995), NIXON is a spellbinding examination of the man who became known as America’s “imperial president.” Nixon’s ruthless ambition puts him at the pinnacle of American politics, until he begins a disastrous attempt to wrest control of the nation away from the Congress and the courts. As a small group of political zealots seek to concentrate the power and prestige of the United States in the hands of one man, his personal demons drive him to undermine his legacy with political “dirty tricks” and a conspiracy to cover them up.
Both the NIXON: THE ELECTION YEAR EDITION DVD and Blu-ray releases are re-mastered with remixed sound and new visual effects unique to this release. Available for the first time ever, the NIXON Blu-ray release features enhanced audio and video quality in high definition.
