star-wars-episode-iv-a-new-hope-original

You would need an encyclopedia to know how many different versions of the original Star Wars Trilogy are out there. From obvious changes made to create the Special Editions, or the addition of “Episode IV” to the first film, to more subtle ones like color correction or audio tweaks, there are dozens of different versions of each film. All fans want, though, are the original negatives, with no “special” additions, but corrections to make them look and sound as good as modern technology will allow.

Unfortunately, that’s probably never going to happen because of rights issues and George Lucas’ wishes. So a group of fans made the Star Wars Despecialized Edition, a painstaking project that’s still in progress. The Despecialized Edition removes all the additions and tweaks slathered onto the films over the years, while simultaneously upgrading the sound and picture to modern standards. The results are pretty incredible and a new featurette shows the jaw-dropping changes and work put into the project. Read More »

Sin City A Dame to Kill For - Marv header

The reasons to see Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For are numerous. The incredible cast for one, which includes Jessica Alba, Powers Boothe, Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Stacy Keach, Jaime King, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis. The filmmakers are another, the iconic storyteller Frank Miller and maverick Robert Rodriguez. There’s the pulpy, exciting source material. And now, we even get a Quentin Tarantino trailer to boot.

But to truly experience a film like this, one that was probably more than half made in the computer, you almost have to see it in 3D. It was specifically crafted that way. In a new featurette, exclusively debuting on /Film, you can listen to the filmmakers and stars talk about the 3D in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Watch the Sin City 2 3D featurette below.

Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in Captain America The Winter Soldier

Walt Disney Pictures has released a new deleted/extended scene from Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The scene, which would have taken place in the second half of the movie (so, yeah, spoiler warning) features Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) disabling security protocols and dumping S.H.I.E.L.D. data onto the internet. Everything on Hydra, everything on S.H.I.E.L.D. — everything.

This also means that Natasha Romanoff would also be revealing a lot of her own secrets. The secrets tease a look at Black Widow’s Marvel Cinematic Universe backstory.
