Maya Entertainment is proud to announce the nationwide DVD and VOD release of The People I’ve Slept With, directed by Quentin Lee (Ethan Mao, Shopping for Fangs) and written by Koji Steven Sakai. The film will be available on home video everywhere from to Walmart.

“We’re delighted to count The People I’ve Slept With as one of our most exciting titles this New Year. Quentin has done an amazing job with pushing the boundaries of sex, romance, and comedy,” said Tonantzin Esparza, Director of Acquisitions of Maya Entertainment, a Los Angeles production and distribution company that deals exclusively in multi-cultural and Latino-themed projects.

The People I’ve Slept With is a sexy, romantic story about Angela (Karin Anna Cheung of Better Luck Tomorrow), a young woman with a zealously active sex life, who after every sexual conquest, makes keepsake “baseball cards” of each of her male conquests. One day, Angela finds out she is pregnant and begins a quest to find the identity of the father. Together with her gay best friend Gabriel (Wilson Cruz of He’s Just Not That Into You, My So-Called Life), the two go on a comical and raunchy hunt through her past hook-ups to find her “baby daddy.” But as Angela peels back the layers of her frisky past, she begins to realize that the answers she is looking for reveal themselves in surprising ways. Featuring a sparkling and daring performance by Karin Anna Cheung (Better Luck Tommorow), The People I’ve Slept With co-stars Archie Kao (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), Lynn Chen (Lakeview Terrace, Saving Face) and screen legend James Shigeta (Flower Drum Song, The Crimson Kimono).

How to Make Love to a Woman DVD

How to Make Love to a Woman DVD

The DVD for “How to Make Love to a Woman” was released last month. It features cameos by Ken Jeong and James Kyson Lee. Here’s more about the film:

A comedy of miscommunication between the sheets, “How to Make Love to a Woman” explores one man’s journey to save his relationship by attempting to improve his “sex skills” instead of communicating what he really feels. When Andy (Josh Meyers) hears his girlfriend Lauren (Krysten Ritter) sigh after sex, he panics and hilariously seeks advice from friends, porn stars and tantric experts. But when Lauren reconnects with her childhood crush, Daniel (Ian Somerhalder), and decides to take a job offer in Chicago, Andy realizes that unless he acts fast, he will lose the love of his life forever. The right answers are not at all what he expected.

Ip Man DVD

Ip Man DVD

You may have seen Ip Man on the film festival circuit this year as well as last year. Today, Ip Man gets released on DVD. Here’s a synopsis of the film:

Ip Man is the award winning film adaptation about the life story of Ip Man, the grand master of the Wing Chun style of kung fu and sifu (master) of legendary kung fu superstar Bruce Lee.

Set in Foshan, China, during the Sino Japanese War, Ip Man vividly brings to life the brutality of the infamous Japanese occupation, where once proud men are forced to fight till their death for a precious bag of rice. Defined by courage and humility, one man rises to the fore, Grandmaster Ip Man (Donnie Yen), whose matchless fighting skills are revered all over China. Upon refusing to teach his beloved fighting art to the invading Japanese soldiers, he is forced to fight for the honor of his country in a series of battles that will culminate in a kill or be killed showdown with General Miura (Hiroyuki Ikeuchi) Japan’s greatest fighter.

The film is action packed from beginning to end with award winning action choreography. Under the tutelage and direction of Sammo Hung, Donnie Yen studied Wing Chun martial arts. It was amazing to find out that Donnie Yen learned Wing Chun from scratch in a short time frame to portray Ip Man as accurately as possible. Additionally the set design is stunning. Not only is Ip Man’s home in the 1930s incredibly detailed, but a functioning 1930s cotton mill was also recreated. If you get the collector’s edition, you’ll get over 2 hours of bonus footage (mostly interviews from the cast and crew including Ip Chun, son of Ip Man). Currently, Ip Man 2 is making its way around the film festival circuit.

Pick up Ip Man at Amazon.
