Product Overview

This DVD 2-Pack Includes THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and THE BODYGUARD.

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA: A musical drama based on Andrew Lloyd Webber's celebrated musical phenomenon. The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a disfigured musical genius (Gerard Butler) who haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera, waging a reign of terror over its occupants. When he falls fatally in love with the lovely Christine (Emmy Rossum), the Phantom devotes himself to creating a new star for the Opera, exerting a strange sense of control over the young soprano as he nurtures her extraordinary talents.

THE BODYGUARD: She's safe now. Safe from hordes of screaming, grasping fans. Safe from demanding kooks who pop up unexpectedly. Safe from the unknown killer stalking her every move. She's in the arms of The Bodyguard. Starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston and featuring songs from the #1 soundtrack album (including Houston's hits "I Will Always Love You" and "I Have Nothing"), The Bodyguard has it all: Suspense. Thrills. Romance. Peril. Passion. And the shining brilliance of two great stars. In her spectacular film debut, Houston plays Rachel Marron, a music/movie superstar at her peak. Fans want to see her, hear her, touch her. But one wants to kill her--and that's where security expert Frank Farmer (Costner) comes in. Farmer is a professional who never lets his guard down. Rachel's life often puts her at risk. Each expects to be in charge. What they don't expect is to fall in love.

Editors Note
Note This two-pack contains Joel Schumacher's 2004 adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Broadway musical THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, and the 1992 blockbuster hit THE BODYGUARD starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. ^PHANTOM OF THE OPERA: Christine Daee (Emmy Rossum) is a tortured young star who is haunted by the voice of the phantom (Gerard Butler), a musician who hides in the shadows to hide a facial disfigurement, yet sings to her obsessively. Dwelling in the dark, damp chambers beneath the 19th century Paris opera house, the phantom lords over the cast and management with artistic autocracy--he writes the shows, casts them, and threatens all who disobey his plans with dramatically violent outbursts. But when his young student Christine falls for the rich and dapper Raoul (Patrick Wilson), the phantom descends into madness. ^THE BODYGUARD: When a former secret service agent (Costner) gets work as a bodyguard for a pop superstar turned actress (Houston), he does not expect to fall in love. But as he protects the unpredictable star from a homicidal fan, the two develop a trust and love that is rare for both. THE BODYGUARD shows off the vocal talents of Whitney Houston, who contributed several Academy Award nominated songs to the film's bestselling soundtrack.

Quotes
Derek Elley, Variety [Phantom] Sumptuous pic version, which evokes the original show while working as a movie in its own right, is lit by a radiant, vocally lustrous perf by teenaged Emmy Rossum.
Joel Siegel, Good Morning America [Phantom] If you're one of the hundred-million people who loved the musical, you'll love the movie even more.
William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer [Phantom] The cast is good, the score is sublime, the visuals are sumptuous and it speeds along with a delirious romantic power that, if you let it, can sweep you away.
