    Available March 24th, 2015 from Shout! Factory

    Mystery Science Theater 3000:Vol. XXXII

    Four DVD Box Set Features Previously Unreleased Episodes

    Space Travelers, Hercules, Radar Secret Service and San Francisco International

    For spring break this year, skip the boring ocean cruise and instead set sail with Joel, Mike and the bots on a madcap journey aboard the Satellite of Love! On March 24th, 2015, Shout! Factory will release Mystery Science Theater 3000: Volume XXXII, featuring four never before on DVD episodes Space Travelers, Hercules, Radar Secret Service and San Francisco International. The DVD box set is also filled with bonus features, including brand new episode introductions by Frank Conniff, new featurettes Barnum Of Baltimore: The Early Films Of Joseph E. Levine; Marooned: A Forgotten Odyssey; Sampo Speaks! A Brief History Of Satellite News and MST-UK with Trace and Frank; as well as theatrical trailers and four exclusive Mini Posters by artist Steve Vance!

    Fans who order this title from ShoutFactory.com will receive free standard shipping to US and Canada, with their copies shipping three weeks before street date. Pre-orders can be placed at ShoutFactory.com

    They were four total strangers, with nothing in common, except themselves. A space drama, a sword and sandals epic, a ‘50s spy film and a TV pilot about an airport. Before the experiment was over, they broke the rules and made us cringe in ways we never dreamed possible. In this 32nd collection of episodes from the cult comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000, Joel, Mike, Tom Servo and Crow spend detention aboard the Satellite of Love with a breakfast club of cheesy movies. To our everlasting good fortune, though, they endure the punishment by delivering a steady stream of wisecracks, and it's definitely some kind of wonderful.

    Mystery Science Theater 3000: Vol. XXXII gives us Radar Secret Service, an atomic age bomb of a spy thriller from Sam Newfield and Robert Lippert that features G-Men tracking stolen Uranium ore using radar and an even stealthier weapon — an undercover blonde! Space Travelers, a dramatic, Academy-Award© winning (really!) tale of about astronauts trapped in space that stars Gene Hackman, Richard Crenna, Gregory Peck and Lee Grant; Hercules, the first of the score of Italian Hercules movies, starring Steve Reeves as the legendary strongman who helps Jason retrieve the Golden Fleece and reclaim his rightful throne from his scheming uncle; and San Francisco International, a made for TV movie / backdoor pilot that never got off the ground. Pernell Roberts leads a respectable cast in this “day in the life” story of an airport and its maverick chief of security.

    Bonus Features Include:
    · New Introductions By Frank Conniff
    · Barnum Of Baltimore: The Early Films Of Joseph E. Levine
    · Marooned: A Forgotten Odyssey
    · Sampo Speaks! A Brief History Of Satellite News
    · MST-UK with Trace and Frank
    · Theatrical Trailers
    · 4 Exclusive Mini-Posters By Artist Steve Vance
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Annual Streaming Marathon Invites Fans to Spend Thanksgiving with MST3K Creator Joel Hodgson and Season 11 Host Jonah Ray


    It’s time to talk turkey—cinematic turkey, that is! Shout! Factory continues its revival of the beloved MST-ie Thanksgiving tradition with a newly curated Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day Marathon.

Season 11 will feature comedian Jonah Ray as the next host (“Jonah Heston”), actress and comedian Felicia Day as the next Mad (“Kinga Forrester”), actor and comedian Patton Oswalt as the next evil henchman (“TV’s Son of TV’s Frank”), comedians Baron Vaughn and Hampton Yount as the newest voices of “Tom Servo” and “Crow T.

    Mystery Science Theater 3000:Vol. XXXIX

    Name:  image002.jpg
Views: 50
Size:  31.8 KB


    Four DVD Box Set Features Previously Unreleased Episodes Girls Town, The Amazing Transparent Man, and Diabolik, and a disc of unreleased host segments, Satellite Dishes.

    Available November 21st, 2017 from Shout! Factory

    And in the end, the laughs you take are equal to the jokes they make. On November 21st, 2017, Shout! Factory will release the almost certainly, probably definitely, maybe unquestionably final collection of never-before-released classic episodes of our favorite cowtown puppet show, Mystery Science Theater 3000.

    The slings and arrows of outrageous licenses have resulted in only three episodes, so Vol. XXXIX also includes Satellite Dishes, a disc featuring the host segments of all the remaining unreleased episodes. The collection also includes a bevy of bonus features, including Chuck Love and the Anatomy of a Theme, Beyond Transparency, a new featurette about The Amazing Transparent Man, Showdown In Eden Prairie: Their Final Experiment, The Last Dance, a documentary special that chronicles the final days shooting the last episode of the original run of MST3K, Diabolik, Behind the Scream: Daniel Griffith on Ballyhoo, mini posters from artist Steve Vance, and theatrical trailers. But final has a way of not being final, and one need only turn to Netflix to appreciate that. So take one plausibly last ride of the classic series with our heroes on the Satellite of Love, and keep circulating the tapes!

    Fans can pre-order their copies now by visiting ShoutFactory.com. The first 1,500 fans who order directly from Shout! Factory will also receive the exclusive bonus disc The Complete Poopie, a collection of MST3K bloopers and outtakes.

    MGM’s 1959 film Girls Town is not a feminist follow up to MGM’s 1938 Boys Town, though to be fair, both are set in towns. B-movie siren Mamie Van Doren stars as a juvenile delinquent trying to survive in the eponymous nun-run reform school after she is wrongly accused of murder. It’s a feast of drag races, catfights, sexy dresses and Mel Tormé, who turns in a Blue Velvet Fog performance as the blackmailing troublemaker. The oddly child-of-star studded cast includes the offspring of Charlie Chaplin, Robert Mitchum and Harold Lloyd. Paul Anka makes his feature debut, and this may be one of his regrets that does bear mentioning. Fortunately for us, those very juvenile delinquents aboard the SoL upgrade a B movie into A+ television and reform us all.

    In The Amazing Transparent Man, an ex-military sociopath plans to raise an army of invisible soldiers, but first he needs to perfect his captive scientist’s invisibilizing device by stealing necessary nuclear materials from a government vault. He engineers the prison break of a notorious thief, leveraging his wanted status to force him to do the heist. This amazing transparent tax shelter provides no dearth of fodder for Mike, Tom and Crow, who see right through the film to the riffs that ultimately make it a joy to behold.

    The celebrated Italian filmmaker Mario Bava must have needed his bathroom redone. In the 1968 spy spoof Diabolik, he takes John Philip Law into his own hands and delivers an exploitation schlock-fest replete with super-criminals, underground lairs, and gadgets that would have Q scratching his head. It’s supposed to be a comedy, but it only turns into one after Mike and the bots riff it good. This film was, of course, the last one Mike and the bots were forced to endure. We thank them for their service!

    Satellite Dishes:

    The best laid plans of mice and licensees often go astray. Despite best efforts to include the remaining unreleased episodes, the hard truth is that they may never see the legitimate light of day. So here is the next best thing: all their host segments. What these delectable dishes from the Satellite of Love lack in riffs, they make up for in irreverent, silly and delightfully nerdy sketch comedy. It's the best we can do, so we are doing it!

    Includes:
    Ep #201 Rocketship X-M
    Ep #213 Godzilla Vs. The Sea Monster
    Ep #309 The Amazing Colossal Man
    Ep #311 It Conquered the World
    Ep #416 Fire Maidens from Outer Space
    Ep #418 The Eye Creatures
    Ep #807 Terror from the Year 5000
    Ep #809 I Was A Teenage Werewolf
    Ep #905 The Deadly Bees
    Ep #906 The Space Children
    Ep #913 Quest of the Delta Knights

    MST3K: Volume XXXIX Bonus Features
    · Chuck Love and the Anatomy of a Theme
    · Beyond Transparency--new featurette about The Amazing Transparent Man
    · Showdown In Eden Prairie: Their Final Experiment
    · The Last Dance-- a documentary special that chronicles the final days shooting the last episode of the original run of MST3K, Diabolik.
    · Behind the Scream: Daniel Griffith on Ballyhoo
    · Theatrical Trailers
    · Four Exclusive Mini-Posters by artist Steve Vance

    Ahhh, the DIABOLIK we have all been waiting for.

    So this comes with a disc of host segments from the remaining films they cannot get the rights to.
    Does this mean ( I hope ) that this is the last of these sets?

    Love this line of total BS...maybe Griffith covers this in his Ballyhoo segment?
    And in the end, the laughs you take are equal to the jokes they make These losers are maybe good for a 1 out of 10 smirk.
    I have no realistic way to gauge the actual laugh ratio.

    I heard the new series is pretty terrible.
