Edward Scissorhands 25th anniversary

This December will mark the official 25th anniversary of Edward Scissorhands, easily one of the best films director Tim Burton has ever made. It represents a fond memory of a time when the filmmaker was still cooking up original stories for the big screen.

To honor this milestone anniversary, Fox Home Entertainment has a restored, special edition Blu-Ray hitting shelves in October. That’s a few months away, but it will be available for pre-order at Comic-Con this week, along with a limited edition lithograph created by Gallery 1988 artist Mark Englert. It’s a pretty wonderfil piece of work that you can see in full after the jump along with details on the Edward Scissorhands 25th anniversary Blu-Ray. Read More »

Sleeping With Other People trailer

IFC Films has released the first trailer for Sleeping With Other People, director Leslye Hedland‘s follow-up to her 2012 indie hit Bachelorette. This one stars Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie as two former hookups who reconnect after twelve years. Seeing as they’re both terrible at relationships, they pledge to stay just friends. However, it becomes increasingly difficult to deny the attraction between them.

In other words, Sleeping With Other People is basically When Harry Met Sally… for assholes. Which is not an insult, by the way — that’s how Hedland herself describes the movie. And really, as great as that romcom classic still is, it’s about time we got a 21st century update. Watch the Sleeping With Other People trailer after the jump. Read More »
