Shout! Factory and Scream Factory have announced four new titles from IFC Films to debut on Blu-Ray in June: Embattled, Kindred, Hunter Hunter and Stardust. From a father-son drama breaking abusive cycles, to a horror film following a mourning wife and an unborn child, to a thriller following a family living in the remote wilderness, and a biographical film on singer David Bowie’s creation of his alter ego Ziggy Stardust, Shout! Factory, in conjunction with IFC Films, brings something for all movie lovers this June. Details on these films can be found below:


EMBATTLED


Street Date: 6/1/21

Synopsis: Raised by an abusive father, Cash (Stephen Dorff) channels his aggression to become a World Champion MMA fighter. Now accustomed to wealth, adulation and global popularity, he faces a new challenge when his second son is born with Williams Syndrome. But this time, rather than stand and fight, he runs. While Cash continues to make his fortune in the ring, his eldest son, Jett (Darren Mann), becomes the caregiver to his younger brother, Quinn (Colin McKenna). When Jett decides to follow in his father’s fighting footsteps, he faces his past head on, embarking on a course inevitably pitting father versus son in a battle which, no matter the outcome, neither can win. Director Nick Sarkisov and screenwriter David McKenna (American History X) “give us fully drawn, realistic male characters slugging it out [in] one of the boldest, strongest films of 2020. Really” (Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News).

HUNTER HUNTER


Street Date: 6/22/21

Believing their traps are being hunted by a returning rogue wolf, Joseph leaves his wife, Anne (Camille Sullivan, Unspeakable), and daughter, Renée (Summer H. Howell, The Midnight Man), on their own as he launches a determined search to catch the apex predator in the act. Growing increasingly anxious as Joseph’s absence continues on, Anne reaches new heights of paranoia when a mysterious and severely injured man appears on her doorstep — and soon the threat of a predator in the woods becomes a threat much closer to home. “An extraordinary entry in the modern horror canon” (Richard Whittaker, Austin Chronicle), Hunter Hunter is a heart-stopping, deep-woods thriller that will stick with you no matter where you are …

STARDUST


Street Date: 6/29/21

He is quickly met with an audience who are not yet ready for him. But during the tumultuous journey, Bowie slowly begins to realize a need to reinvent himself in order to truly become himself … and it’s within that realization that his iconic, celestial alter-ego Ziggy Stardust is born. Anchored by stellar performances from Johnny Flynn, Jena Malone (as Bowie’s wife, Angie) and Marc Maron (as his publicist, Rob Oberman), Stardust offers an intimate glimpse into the moments that inspired the creation of Bowie’s first and most memorable alter-ego, illuminating the turning point that cemented his legacy as one of the world’s greatest cultural icons.
