New Blu-ray Releases Phantom Thread

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to new Blu-ray releases and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

What physical media awaits you this week? Why, it’s one of the best films of last year – Phantom Thread! Also: a musical featuring Hugh Jackman and CGI elephants; a Ridley Scott thriller more known for its reshoots than its story; the supposedly last entry in a horror franchise; and two very different indie films.

Here are the new Blu-ray releases and their special features you should check out this week.

Phantom Thread Deleted Scene

Phantom Thread is simultaneously delightfully wicked and deliciously wonderful, and it would have lived up to both those descriptors even more if a certain scene didn’t end up on the cutting room floor.

Now that the film from writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson is available to buy on digital download (then Blu-ray and DVD on April 10), a Phantom Thread deleted scene has surfaced online featuring fashion designer Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) getting into a messy spat with his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) at the breakfast table. A sibling disagreement they have escalates to a food fight where they’re tossing tea and juice at each other, but things get even messier after that. Read More »

Coco locations

Disney/Pixar’s Coco is bursting with authenticity. From the set designs to the family dynamics to the music, the whole film feels like a love letter to Mexico. It has a story that works for everyone, but goes out of its way to give a special nod to a culture that isn’t often represented on the big screen. That attention to detail paid off in a huge way: Coco became the highest grossing movie in Mexico’s history and has made more than $730 million worldwide.

So how did the film that survived a justified uproar when Disney tried to copyright the phrase “Dia de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead) become one of the most culturally accurate and pure-hearted films in recent memory? Immersion, research, and respect.

In honor of Coco’s home video release, Disney flew me and a handful of other journalists to Oaxaca, Mexico, where we followed in the footsteps of the filmmakers’ research trips and visited many of the neighborhoods and locations that inspired the creation of the movie. Learn more about the making of Coco below. Read More »
