Tina Fey‘s new show, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, was going to be a mid-season replacement on NBC. That network, of course, is where Fey got her big break on Saturday Night Live; then it became the butt of her jokes on the award-winning sitcom 30 Rock. So it seemed like the perfect fit.
However, in what seems to be a happy split, the show – which stars Office-alum Ellie Kemper as a cult dropout trying to make it in New York City- will now debut on Netflix in March 2015. More so, it got an immediate two-season order from the streaming company. Read more about the new Tina Fey show and the move to Netflix below. Read More »

Despite being as good, if not better, than its previous two incarnations, The Expendables 3 didn’t light a fire at the domestic box office. After the first two films grossed $103 million and $85 million respectively, the third film only did $39 million (Internationally it did a respectable $206 million, but that was still a franchise low).
There are plenty of reasons why The Expendables 3 under-performed, but it certainly wasn’t for lack of star power. Original stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham and others were joined by Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Kelsey Grammar, Antonio Banderas and Wesley Snipes as well as a whole team of young soldiers, including Kellen Lutz and Ronda Rousey.
You can see all those stars and more on the Blu-ray, which is released November 25. One example of the extras on the disc are a funny Expendables 3 gag reel, which features Ford and Gibson hamming it up on set, cursing, it’s good stuff. Check out the Expendables 3 gag reel below. Read More »

Just as they do with their movies, Marvel Studios likes to give audiences a little something extra with their Blu-rays. For a while, that meant One-Shots — the short films that took place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now, it means a bevy of special features like those you’d find on pretty much any Blu-ray. However, they way the studio “makes it all Marvel” is to provide enough inside jokes and fan-specific content that non-fans will enjoy it, but Marvel fans will flip out. The upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-ray is no exception.
We got a glimpse at all of the video special features on the disc and there is so much for Marvel fans to dig into. Below, read 10 of the most awesome things you’ll find on the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-ray special features. Read More »
Alfonso Cuaron‘s Gravity did a fantastic job of showing how isolated one might feel in space. It also really pushed the emotions because of Steven Price‘s Oscar-winning score. Space is a silent vacuum, however, and to give Gravity fans a wholly new experience, an upcoming re-release of the Blu-ray will have a “Silent Space” audio track to give the viewer a sense of what the events of the movie might actually sound like in space. Read more about the Gravity silent space version below. Read More »
