To date, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa is the only Jackass movie with a plotline, and the only one to be nominated for an Oscar. But one way it doesn’t differ from the other Jackass movies is the amount of footage shot for it.
Like Jackasses 2 and 3, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa had enough leftovers for a not-quite-sequel, dubbed Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5. Featuring Oscar nominee Catherine Keener and Oscar winner Spike Jonze, the new film arrives in just a couple of weeks. Today, we have the first Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5 trailer. Watch it after the jump.

Halloween fans and Paul Rudd completists have reason to rejoice today. September of this year will see the release of a complete Halloween blu-ray box set from Anchor Bay and Scream Factory.
For the first time ever, there will be a single box release collecting Halloween, Halloween II, Halloween III: Season of the Witch, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Halloween H20, Halloween: Resurrection, and Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween II.
In this case “complete” isn’t a term being used lightly. The box will feature not only all ten major Halloween releases, but also one of the rarest items in the Halloween catalog: the “Producer’s Cut” of Halloween: The Curse of Michael Meyers. This “producer’s cut” is an alternate version of the film that was also the big-screen debut of Paul Rudd, and features quite a few scenes that aren’t in the theatrical release. The movie has been the most sought-after bootleg for Halloween fans, and a legit release is something we once thought would never see the light of day. Read More »
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 finally opens in the U.S. this week and it’ll have a wide spread of fans and detractors. Some people are going to absolutely adore the beautifully rendered action sequences and character interactions while others are going to hate the bloated plot and tired exposition. The same can’t be said for an eventual Blu-ray collector’s set for the film, for which we have an early look today. This is a badly rendered, hilariously cheesy bust of Jamie Foxx‘s Electro, with three discs in his neck. Fans who like the movie and might want to buy The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Blu-ray will probably not like the look of this set. Check out the images below. Read More »
One of the craziest movie stories of 2013 was Escape From Tomorrow. The film quietly premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and, overnight, became the talk of the industry. People were amazed that this psychological thriller about a man on vacation with his family at Disneyland covertly shot at the theme park without permission from the company. Most believed Disney would never let it see the light of day. But as buzz continued to build, and the film was picked up for distribution, Disney seemed to think not addressing the film would be the best course of action.
So they let it go. Now Escape from Tomorrow is coming to Blu-ray April 29. We’re excited to exclusively debut a clip from the film’s making-of documentary, discussing the complicated legal issues surrounding the release of the film. Read More »
These days, it’s easy to say you love Brad Bird. After The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t like his work. But many of us were on board from the beginning with The Iron Giant.
In the summer of 1999, Bird was just another untapped talent from The Simpsons who went to college with lots of famous people. He was making his first feature. Unfortunately, the film was released on the same weekend as The Sixth Sense. Warner Bros. didn’t know what to do with the film, or how to market it, and it did not connect with audiences. From a reported $70 million production budget, The Iron Giant only grossed $23 million and was deemed a failure. However, the few people who actually saw the movie instantly fell in love with it. It was obvious the film had incredible heart and ambition, and was the work of someone with a bright future.
Despite the cult following that’s developed over the years, Warner Bros. has never released a The Iron Giant Blu-ray. Recently on Twitter, Bird admitted he’s been talking to them about it and they’re interested. They just don’t want to give the film the kind of release it deserves. He feels you can help. Read More »

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues was crammed full of jokes, and there were so many more left on the cutting room floor that director Adam McKay was able to cobble together a second cut of the movie with 763 new jokes. But now it’s time to get serious.
Paramount has just released a clip from what it calls Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues: No Joke Cut, with exactly zero jokes. By stripping away the humor, Anchorman 2 is finally exposed as the heart-wrenching domestic drama that it really is. Watch it after the jump.

Jennifer Lawrence ”singing” in American Hustle was one of the film’s best moments. Whether you loved the film or hated it, there’s simply no denying Lawrence lip-synching Live and Let Die by Wings was amazing. Turns out, that wasn’t the only song director David O. Russell got the Oscar-winning actress to lip-synch while cleaning her apartment.
