Luke Cage featurette

We’ve already met Netflix’s next leading Marvel hero, thanks to Mike Colter‘s recurring role on Jessica Jones season one. We’re familiar with his powers and his personality, as well as the broad strokes of his backstory. But as we approach the much-anticipated premiere of the Luke Cage solo series, Netflix thinks there are a few more things we ought to know. A new Luke Cage featurette gets us up to speed on the man with unbreakable skin — what he’s been up to since we last saw him, and where he’s headed next in his own show.  Read More »

commercial free CBS all access

I haven’t subscribed to the new CBS All Access streaming platform yet, but I will. In fact, I know exactly when I will give them my credit card number: in January 2017, when Star Trek: Discovery premieres and becomes available exclusively through this new service. Yes, CBS – you got me hook, line, and sinker with this dastardly plan of yours and I know I’m not alone.

However, everyone now has a second option for when they sign up for CBS All Access to try out the new Star Trek show. In addition to the regular plan, CBS has announced a slightly more expensive plan that will allow you to use the service without advertisements. Mostly.

Ghostbusters Extended Cut

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 »

Middle Earth Film Collection

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 »

Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Box Set

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 »

Popstar Deleted Scene

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 »
