This Roger Rabbit deleted scene explains so much. A video has been brought to our attention from the DVD of Robert Zemeckis‘ 1988 film Who Framed Roger Rabbit. In it, Zemeckis and his crew discuss a deleted scene they refer to as “The Pig Head Sequence” which was the first completed scene in the film, but was later cut out. The scene explains why Eddie Valiant (Bob Hoskins) awkwardly comes into in his office to meet Jessica Rabbit with his shirt off in the final film. He was washing off a giant ‘toon pig head.
Below, watch the Roger Rabbit deleted scene as well as some behind the scenes looks at how it was created. Read More »
As someone who grew up in the Nineties, it’s kind of hard to get my mind around Nineties nostalgia. It honestly feels like it was yesterday, even though we’re 15 plus years removed. That said, I still enjoy it and Cinefix has just created a prime example to stab me straight in the heart – a homemade Hook remake.
They got Dante Basco to reprise his role as Rufio in a short, “homemade” (basically sweded) scene from Steven Spielberg‘s Hook. It’s surreal and funny to see this exciting, emotional scene played out in a Los Angeles driveway. With Basco there to utter his classic lines, however, it’s very worth your time. Plus there’s a behind the scenes video and a side by side with Spielberg’s version. Check them out below. Read More »
Rest assured that when The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits Blu-ray on April 8, there will be hours of behind the scenes footage to illustrate in exhaustive detail the process of creating the film. But of all the possible views on the process of building The Desolation of Smaug, the one we’re perhaps most keen to learn about is the process of bringing its titular dragon to life.
A new featurette shows a bit of that process, including just a bit of footage of Benedict Cumberbatch in a mo-cap suit doing some all-in physical performance for Smaug. Oh, and in case you need some size reference for Smaug, one of his creators explains that he’s twice the size of a jumbo jet. Check out the video after the break. Read More »
Few things can brighten up a film fan’s day like behind the scenes footage. Film sets are some of the most isolated, protected working environments out there so to catch a glimpse of any set, let alone something that’s become a huge part of popular culture, really is a delight.
Below, we have some new footage from the set of the fourth season of Game of Thrones as well as from Wes Anderson‘s upcoming film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Check it out. Read More »

We’ve seen Bradley Cooper recording a few lines as Rocket Raccon in Guardians of the Galaxy, and heard his voice. Now here’s Vin Diesel‘s turn, as he discusses his character, the tree-man-alien Groot, who acts as “Rocket’s personal houseplant/muscle.” You won’t hear his voice, but there is some new footage to see below.
Update: Dave Bautista and Drax, Zoe Saldana and Gamora, and Chris Pratt and Star-Lord are the next actor/character pairs to get short video spotlights, and you can see their reels, each of which has some good new footage, below.

When Disney released Frozen at Thanksgiving last year, it was met with generally good reviews and solid buzz. But no one could have been prepared for what happened next. The snowball of excitement and box office just kept rolling and now, coming up on its fourth (?!?!) month in release, it’s still in the top ten. Quietly, Frozen became 2013′s highest grossing animated film. It was nominated for multiple Oscars, and was instantly accepted into pop culture. With the Blu-ray set for release March 18, there’s no guessing how many times your kids (and, let’s face it, probably you) will be singing “Let It Go.”
To help promote the Blu-ray, Disney has begun to release deleted scenes from the hugely popular film, and you can watch not one, but two below. Read More »
