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.
Get details on the special edition Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit box set after the jump. Read More »
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 »

Whether or not you liked Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice when it hit theaters earlier this year, there’s a good chance that you’re curious to see the 30 minutes of footage that’s being put back into what is being called the Ultimate Edition. The alternate cut of the movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD next month (though it will hit Digital HD a few weeks earlier), so a new trailer has arrived to tout the home video release. It’s not chock full of new footage like the previous trailer was, but there are glimpses of some new shots, as well as the special features that will take you behind the scenes.

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). Watch it below. Read More »

It took decades for the deleted scenes from the original Star Wars trilogy to eventually emerge from the Lucasfilm vaults and watching them was a surreal experience. Here was new Star Wars footage, original trilogy footage, that we hadn’t seen a hundred times before. We can sit around all day and complain about the failings of that big Blu-ray box set, but those excised scenes made it all worthwhile. Deleted scenes are usually deleted for a reason, but watching them is often key to understanding how a film is shaped in the editing room. Here’s what simply had to go, for one reason or another.
Thankfully, fans won’t have to wait thirty-something years to watch deleted scenes from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as they will be included on the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release. In fact, a new trailer has arrived teasing these scenes, because those monsters at Disney know just how interested we are in watching any and all additional footage.
