Doctor Strange Gag Reel

Tomorrow, Marvel’s Doctor Strange will be available to download on Digital HD if you can’t wait for the Blu-ray and DVD to hit shelves in a couple weeks. The home video release will be chock full of bonus features, and one of the most entertaining bits on from all the extras is always the gag reel. There’s just something hilarious about seeing Earth’s mightiest heroes flub their lines, take a misstep, drop their weapons or dance like total goofballs. And the Doctor Strange gag reel is no exception, especially when it comes to Benedict Cumberbatch showing off some dance moves in the Sanctum Sanctorum.

‘Iron Fist’ Clip: Colleen Wing Brings the Pain

Iron Fist Colleen Wing clip

Finn Jones‘ Danny Rand may be at the center of Netflix’s Iron Fist, but he’s definitely not the show’s only resident hero. In fact, he may not even be the show’s coolest resident hero, if the first Iron Fist clip is any indication. This sneak peek offers a much better look at Danny’s buddy Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick), who proves right off the bat that she’s a force to be reckoned with. Underestimate her at your own peril — you may just wind up like the two burly dudes who make the mistake of dismissing her as “a little girl.”

Doctor Strange Deleted Scene

This month you’ll be able to bring Doctor Strange into your living room when the film hits Digital HD next week and Blu-Ray and DVD just a couple weeks later. Marvel’s latest superhero is just getting started with his own franchise, but we’ll see Benedict Cumberbatch in the cape again later this year with a small, key role in Thor: Ragnarok, as well as a pivotal part in The Avengers: Infinity War.

If you can’t wait until Doctor Strange can be watched from the comfort of your home, we have a little fix for all of you fans of the mystical arts out there, especially if you like dogs. Marvel has released a Doctor Strange deleted scene that will be included on the home video release of the franchise starter, and it’s one that might have made him seem like less of a jerk much earlier in the movie.

Netflix’s ‘The OA’ Renewed for Season 2

The OA Renewed for Season 2

Even after a full eight-episode season, The OA felt like it was just getting started. The finale raised as many questions as it answered, and left plenty of meat on the bone for future episodes to pick apart. So it’s with relief that we can report Prairie’s saga will continue on in the not-too-distant future. As of today, Netflix has officially renewed Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij‘s trippy supernatural drama for a second season.

deep space nine blu-ray

CBS recently announced that Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager were going to be reissued on DVD, leaving many fans to wonder why these shows wouldn’t join the original Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Star Trek: Enterprise on Blu-ray. Unfortunately, there isn’t a simple answer to this question and the details are going to bum out any fan hoping for a ray of high definition hope. Thanks to a new interview though, we now know exactly why these shows will probably never get proper HD restorations.

Barry Jenkins Critterion Collection Picks

It’s been a hell of a year for director Barry Jenkins. The filmmaker has been getting all sorts of acclaim for his powerful coming of age drama Moonlight, which was just nominated for Best Picture last week. Jenkins himself also landed a nomination for Best Director, which isn’t a bad accomplishment for his sophomore effort behind the camera.

With the Academy Awards less than a month away, and Moonlight getting plenty of nominations at various awards ceremonies, Barry Jenkins has been making all sorts of publicity rounds (including the usual roundtable interviews with the major awards contenders in the directing arena). One of his more recent appearances will be something that cinephiles who have a fondness for the Criterion Collection will enjoy quite a bit. Check it out after the jump. Read More »

phantasm blu-ray set

Physical media may be slowly succumbing to the digital age, but you can pry my Blu-ray library from my cold, lifeless corpse…a corpse that will have a frozen smile on its bloodless face because I died watching movies that didn’t need to buffer at key moments and actually allowed me to watch the ending credits before smash cutting to a recommendation. And speaking of corpses and physical media, a Blu-ray box set collecting all five Phantasm movies is on the way, just in case you happen to like good things.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

The Defenders - Misty Knight (Simone Missick) and Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter)

As we’ve already established, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist aren’t exactly team player types. It’d probably take a monumental threat to bring the four of them together for The Defenders, and over the summer we learned the face of that threat would be Sigourney Weaver. Since then, details about her mysterious The Defenders villain character have been kept under very tight wraps. But today brings our first look at Weaver in character, along with a few new details about her — including her name.

See the first The Defenders Sigourney Weaver photo below, plus a whole bunch of new images featuring the various Defenders in different configurations. (My favorite of those new photos is the one highlighted above.) Read More »
