I made a post on my personal blog about The Fantastic Four that touches on some Cannon stuff. And here's a page with some art from Albert Pyun's Spider-Man.

The mother lode of crazy Cannon movies is coming out on DVD from MGM throughout the summer. With the sale of MGM, I was worried some of these would never appear.

Hercules and Sinbad arrive on July 12th; Bolero, Lady Chatterly's Lover and Mata Hari on July 26th; almost the entirety of the Cannon Movie Tales series on August 9th; and The Breakin' Collection, which includes Beat Street and a bonus DVD on the breakdancing phenomenon, arrives on August 16th.

Most of the DVDs appear to be widescreen, including (thankfully) Hercules. The MGM website lists Bolero as being rated R, which may mean it's the edited version and not the one previously available in the USA Home Video "big box." With this crop of Movie Tale releases, it appears that only The Frog Prince will remain unreleased.
