This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s.
Salt barrels forward at a relentless pace, and stops only for the most perfunctory of emotional beats. You know they’re emotional beats because somber music plays in the background while characters gaze longingly at each other. 30 seconds of that, and it’s back to more running, car hopping and violently-inflicted bodily injury. None of the action is especially impressive or inspired, but what it lacks in polish it makes up for in sheer volume. The mystery of Evelyn Salt is meant to keep the audience on their toes as the action unfolds, but it’s all so ludicrous and predictable; if there is a compelling mystery at the core of Salt, it’s learning just how much casual ass-kickery it can fit into a 100 minute package.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD – A filmmakers’ commentary, an unrated filmmakers’ commentary, an unrated extended filmmakers’ commentary, 2 featurettes (“The Ultimate Female Action Hero”, “Spy Disguise: The Looks of Evelyn Salt”), and “The Treatment” Radio Interview with Phillip Noyce. Blu-ray – Includes everything on the DVD, as well as a Spy Cam: Picture-in-Picture function, and additional featurettes (“The Real Agents”, “The Modern Master of the Political Thriller: Phillip Noyce”, “False Identity: Creating A New Reality”).

In preparation for the film’s imminent opening, Sony and Screen Gems have put the first ten minutes of Will Gluck‘s high school comedy Easy A online. The movie stars Emma Stone as Olive, a girl who sorta accidentally gets a reputation, and features Penn Badgley, Amanda Bynes, Thomas Haden Church, Cam Gigandet, Lisa Kudrow, Malcolm MacDowell, Aly Michalka and Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson as Stone’s parents, who steal every scene they’re in. Watch the extended clip after the break. Read More »

At ShoWest I was handed an promotional booklet listing all of Sony’s upcoming releases, and noticed a few unreleased photos for films to be released in Late 2010-2011. After the jump you can see photos from the Adam McKay-directed Will Ferrell-starring comedy The Other Guys, the Untitled James L Brooks Comedy starring Reese Witherspoon, a logo for Burlesque, Easy A and Takers. Please excuse the low-fi quality of the images as they were snapped with an iPhone.
According to Variety, Emma Stone is currently negotiating her first lead role. Easy A has been scripted by Bert V. Royal, shooting-star playwright, and will be directed by Will Gluck, previously responsible for Fired Up. Mini-reviews of that one would be appreciated in the comments, just to provide some kind of indicators of potential success or failure.
I like Stone a great deal. There were some scenes in House Bunny that featured little more than Anna Faris and Emma Stone talking to one another and those were easily the best bits, with some seriously strong comedy chops on display from both parties. Stone has also been strong in her other turns, from the good-o of Superbad to the semi-crock of The Rocker, and though the character she’s been landed with for The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past seems a bit broad, I trust Mark Waters and Stone enough to feel some guarded optimism for the finished film. Sadly, though, the premise of Easy A seems a little underwhelming.
