blade runner 2049 blu-ray

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

Ready for the latest Blu-ray round-up? I sure hope so, because it’s here, right in front of your eyes. This week, one of the best and most over-looked films of 2017 comes to Blu-ray. And that’s not the only overlooked film hitting shelves! An unjustly ignored 1993 comedy from the director of Gremlins receives a special collector’s edition from Shout! Factory! In addition to that, there’s a star-studded Agatha Christie adaptation (no, not that one), and a John Ford classic from the Criterion Collection. Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

Lucasfilm Expanded Universe

Update: Leland Chee has responded to this story via Twitter, and we’ve embedded his tweets at the bottom of this article. Our original article follows.

It’s been over a month since the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, so you’re all probably very familiar with the complaints about the movie by now. One of the most popular sounds something like this: “The Luke Skywalker I know would never act like that.” Basic translation: “I read a ton of novels featuring that character in which he behaves totally differently than he does in this movie.” Those novels were part of the Star Wars Expanded Universe, a collection of Lucasfilm-approved stories that was stricken from the official canon when Disney bought Lucasfilm and rebranded into what’s now called Star Wars Legends.

We heard an official explanation about why the company decided to set the EU aside when that decision was made back in 2014, but now one of the Lucasfilm Story Group members has given a much more specific justification for their reasoning in a new interview. Check out the latest Lucasfilm Expanded Universe explanation below.

Top Gun 2 Love Interest

Screenwriter Justin Marks appeared on a Television Critics Association panel for his Starz series Counterpart (which we’ll have more about in the coming weeks), but afterwards, we got the chance to ask about the screenplay for Top Gun: Maverick, of which Marks wrote an early draft.

Tom Cruise is back for the long-awaited, long-gestating sequel to the 1986 fighter pilot movie directed by the late Tony Scott, and Val Kilmer wants in too. But what about Kelly McGillis? Will she be back as Charlie? Or will there be a new Top Gun 2 love interest? Read More »

Braven Trailer

Manly men Jason Momoa and Stephen Lang find themselves dealing with drug dealers on snowmobiles in Braven, a film with a clunky title and a whole lot of charm. The Braven trailer is filled with the type of glorious action-movie cheese that used to be prominent in the 1980s and 1990s, and I mean that in the best possible way. You should definitely watch the new trailer below.
