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.

all the money in the world reshoots

Ridley Scott recently made headlines when he decided to reshoot Kevin Spacey’s scenes in All The Money In The World with Christopher Plummer – a decision that required co-stars Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams to come back for said reshoots. Reports now indicate that while Wahlberg received a hefty sum of money to film his reshoots, Williams was paid millions of dollars less.

T.J. Miller Deadpool 2

Ridley Scott set a precedent when he worked quickly to remove Kevin Spacey from All the Money in the World following sexual misconduct accusations against the actor – but don’t expect the Deadpool 2 filmmakers to follow in Scott’s footsteps. Weeks after a story broke accusing Untitled Deadpool Sequel co-star T.J. Miller of sexual assault, the film’s producer confirmed that since Deadpool 2 is in its final editing stage, Miller’s performance would likely remain intact.

Blader Runner 3

Ridley Scott may have taken a hands-off approach to Denis Villeneuve‘s ambitious critical darling Blade Runner 2049, but it appears that he wants to tackle another sequel to his seminal sci-fi classic Blade Runner.

The 80-year-old director keeps piling up potential projects, with news that he’s in talks with Disney to adapt the Merlin Saga and now his somewhat nonchalant statement that he’s considering a return to the Blade Runner franchise. Now it’s just a question of whether Warner Bros. would want to invest in another sequel to the sci-fi series after Blade Runner 2049 disappointed at the box office.

Ridley Scott recently turned 80 and this may be the busiest he’s ever been. After a year that saw him releasing two feature films, Alien: Covenant and All the Money in the World, the latter of which he massively retooled with a new star in just nine days, Scott is not slowing down any time soon.

Disney is courting Scott to helm the studio’s adaptation of The Merlin Saga, which follows the legendary wizard as a young man before he becomes mentor to King Arthur. It’s one of two Camelot-related projects that Disney is developing, including a Sword in the Stone remake which, surprise, Scott also met with executives to discuss.

Alien 5

I regret to inform you that Neill Blomkamp is at it again. The filmmaker behind District 9 and Elysium has released even more potential Alien 5 concept art, teasing the Alien sequel he never got a chance to make. Does this indicate the previously thought to be dead project might be alive again, or is Blomkamp just having some fun? Let’s speculate wildly!

Ridley Scott star wars

Ridley Scott is 80 years old and DGAF about your favorite science-fiction franchise.

Having helmed several iconic sci-fi franchises of his own (and still going strong), Scott is probably one of the few major directors in Hollywood today who doesn’t get all googly-eyed when faced with the all-powerful Star Wars. And don’t ask him if he’d want to direct a Star Wars film either — it’s the last thing that both he and Disney would want to deal with.

Blade Runner 2049 Ridley Scott

There’s a certain candor that you’ll only get from 80-year-old directors nearing a half-century in the movie business and who just doesn’t give a hoot anymore.

Ridley Scott recently gave a profanity-laced interview about everything from his bold nine-day reshoots of All the Money in the World to his whether he’d be up to make a Star Wars movie. But I know what you really want to learn: what Scott thinks about Denis Villeneuve‘s ambitious follow-up to his sci-fi classic film, Blade Runner. And Scott doesn’t hold back his opinions on the critically acclaimed but commercially disappointing Blade Runner 2049.

all the money in the world trailer

Ridley Scott defied all the odds and is ready to deliver All the Money in the World to theaters right on schedule (give or take a few days). A filmmaker delivering a film as expected normally isn’t a huge deal, but All the Money in the World is a special case: with only weeks until release, Scott and company went back and reshot several scenes to replace disgraced actor Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer. It was a bold, unexpected plan that might just have paid off. Now, new details from Scott and Plummer have emerged about the All the Money in the World reshoots.
