Justice League director's cut

Warner Bros. is so disappointed in the box office performance of Justice League that they’re changing up the way they handle their superhero movies going forward. The movie wasn’t nearly as divisive as Batman v Superman, but even those who appreciated Justice League‘s bizarre blend of tones and defend the movie can’t ignore that the movie failed to make the money a blockbuster of that size and cost should make.

Some diehard fans are convinced that if only director Zack Snyder‘s director’s cut could be released, the film would be seen in its originally-intended glory – without the contributions of Joss Whedon, who stepped in to direct reshoots after Snyder left the project due to a family tragedy. Now, a new rumor indicates that a Justice League director’s cut might be available on home video, but it won’t be the famed Snyder cut: if it happens, the rumor claims it’ll be an extended cut of the theatrical version overseen by Whedon.

most rented redbox movies

Movie theaters may be losing audiences at an alarming rate, and the streaming service field may be increasingly cluttered, but at least we’ll always have home video, right? Right…?

Renting a physical DVD or Blu-ray of your favorite movie still hasn’t lost its magic, even when the renting process shifted from your local rental store (RIP) to the bright red kiosk that populates every superstore or drug store. And while Blockbuster and local video stores were put out of business long ago, Redbox has stuck around, handling a vast percentage of physical movie rentals. In honor of its 15 anniversary this year, Redbox has released its top 15 movie rentals. And this list is…erm…a bit disappointing.

Happy Halloween! Open your goodie bags and/or plastic pumpkin buckets and I’ll drop some fine physical media in there. In this latest Blu-ray round-up, I’ve got a group of films that are actually perfect for Halloween. They’re also perfect for any day besides Halloween, too. You don’t need Halloween as an excuse to watch creepy movies, folks. They’re good all year round.

Superman The Movie Extended

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a three-hour extended cut of Richard Donner‘s 1978 classic Superman: The Movie! But what’s it doing up there? Oh, I see now, it’s preparing for its long-awaited home video release later this year. Naturally.

Warner Bros.’ Archive Collection has finally decided to give Superman fans the chance to own this rare, newly-remastered extended edition for themselves, and considering how Henry Cavill’s modern cinematic interpretation of the Man of Steel isn’t exactly cheery, it seems like a great time to bring Christopher Reeves‘ smiling, unabashedly positive take on the superhero back into our lives.

Remember physical media? It still exists! I swear! And while streaming is great, there’s something to be said for a Blu-ray release, especially considering not everything is available via streaming. So we’re going to dust off our physical media release column and take it around the track. There’s still life in this one yet. Join me, won’t you?

This week on Blu-ray we have the best film in the DCEU, a charming rom-com, a Steven Spielberg classic, and a beautiful film where Kristen Stewart eats a sandwich.
