Like any movie with the words “star” and “wars” in the title, Star Wars: The Force Awakens ignited all kinds of conversations when it was released last year. Fans picked apart every scene in the movie, but no moment was more throughly dissected than Rey’s “Forceback,” where Daisy Ridley‘s Jedi-to-be touches Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber and finds herself propelled into a wild flashback involving Cloud City, the Knights of Ren, and her own abandonment on Jakku. And thanks to the upcoming collector’s edition Blu-ray of the film, someone else is finally able to weigh in on this scene: director J.J. Abrams.

If your main problem with David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad was that there wasn’t nearly enough of it, Warner Bros. has a gift for you. And don’t worry, it’s not live rats or dead pigs. The studio has just announced a Suicide Squad extended cut to hit Digital HD and Blu-ray later this year, with 13 minutes of additional footage. Check out the Suicide Squad extended cut announcement teaser below.

Even though we’ve heard that a Ghostbusters sequel is unlikely after the box office numbers were analyzed a little more closely, there’s a chance the home video release could help convince Sony Pictures otherwise. Plus, when the reboot hits home video, we’ll be getting a different cut of the movie as an extended cut has been confirmed to be on the home video release, as teased by director Paul Feig a little while back.
The film has officially been given the title of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, which appeared at the end of some of the trailers and the movie once it hit theaters, as you can see in the cover art. You can check that out after the jump along with the list of special features and the release date for the Ghostbusters extended cut on Digital HD as well as Blu-ray and DVD. Read More »
Last week, a limited collector’s edition release of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies was revealed on Amazon. The set features the extended editions of all six films from director Peter Jackson in an impressive display of faux leather-bound books with all the bonus features you’d ever want. At the time, we only had one image of the set, but now you can get a closer look at it.
Dominic Monaghan played Meriadoc Brandybuck (aka Merry) in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and it appears he was the cast member with an open enough schedule to be able to record an unboxing video that shows us just how cool a set this is. However, it still may not be worth the price tag, especially because this may not exactly be the set that Peter Jackson truly wants fans to have. Find out more below. Read More »

Both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies have seen multiple releases on home video. In fact, I’ve lost count of just how many different home video releases there have been of Lord of the Rings. But now the definitive collection of all six extended cuts of Peter Jackson‘s Middle Earth films is coming this fall, and it’s undoubtedly the one box set to rule them all.

If you didn’t see Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping this summer, you’re part of the problem. Universal Pictures gave us this glorious, original comedy chock full of outstanding new songs from The Lonely Island, a barrage of incredible cameos, and some of the biggest laughs of the year. And how did audiences respond? Well, they didn’t, because the movie didn’t even hit $10 million in its theatrical run. But next month, you can make up for it when the movie hits home video.
Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on September 13, and it will hit VOD a couple weeks earlier on August 30. To help promote the arrival of the movie, a Popstar deleted scene has made its away online featuring an entire song that didn’t make the final cut of the movie (though you could have listened to it on the soundtrack). But beware that this scene is NSFW due to language, because the song is called “Fuck Off,” and they repeat that phrase more than a few times throughout. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
There have been rumblings of a Justice League Dark movie in the works since as far back as 2012. Director Guillermo del Toro was once supposed to be behind the camera for an assembly of DC Comics characters such as Constantine, Swamp Thing, Jason Blood/The Demon, Madame Xanadu and Anton Arcane, but he ended up falling away from the project nearly a year ago. More recently, some possible casting and director contenders have emerged, but we haven’t heard anything since last fall.
Now fans waiting for a Justice League Dark movie can pass their time with a forthcoming straight-to-DVD animated movie that’s in the works according to the supplemental features on the forthcoming home video release of the animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke. Find out more about the Justice League Dark animated movie below. Read More »
If the original cut of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice left you wanting more, then Warner Bros. Pictures and director Zack Snyder have a treat for you. A new cut of Batman v Superman is getting released this summer, and as we’ve previously heard, this Ultimate Edition of the movie will put 30 minutes of cut footage back into the movie, some of which is so violent that it has earned an R-rating.
Now the first Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition trailer has arrived, showing tons of new footage, including glimpses of new supporting characters, including Jena Malone as Barbara Gordon, and more action for the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) and the Dark Knight (Ben Affleck).
