              HOLLYWOOD, Calif.  – Hailed by critics as “brilliant” (Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times), “powerful” (Brian Truitt, USA Today), “stunning” (Helen O Hara, GQ), and “gorgeous” (Stephanie Zacharek, Time), visionary director Martin Scorsese’s entrancing epic SILENCE makes its home entertainment debut on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand March 28, 2017 from Paramount Home Media Distribution.  The film arrives two weeks early on Digital HD March 14.

Universal City, California, February 16, 2017 – Intrepid creature hunter Burt Gummer and his son Travis find themselves in a remote hotbed of giant man-eating worms in the newest action-packed entry in the wildly popular Tremors franchise.

“This is going to be the craziest, most over-the-top movie in the Tremors saga to date,” said Glenn Ross, general manager and executive vice president, Universal 1440 Entertainment. “It takes the franchise’s signature combination of suspense, action and humor to new explosive heights.”

Michael Gross (“Family Ties,” Tremors franchise) and Jamie Kennedy (“The Cleveland Show,” Screamfranchise) return as Burt Gummer and Travis Welker, joined by franchise newcomers Tanya van Graan (Death Race: InfernoZulu), Rob van Vuuren (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) and Greg Kriek (Momentum).

Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) and his son Travis Welker (Jamie Kennedy) find themselves up to their ears in Graboids and Ass-Blasters when they head to Canada to investigate a series of deadly giant-worm attacks. Arriving at a remote research facility in the artic tundra, Burt begins to suspect that Graboids are secretly being weaponized, but before he can prove his theory, he is sidelined by Graboid venom. With just 48 hours to live, the only hope is to create an antidote from fresh venom — but to do that, someone will have to figure out how to milk a Graboid!
