Vice musical number watch

Adam McKay‘s Vice is a very off-the-wall biopic of Dick Cheney, but there was one moment apparently too wacky to include: a musical number. The number comes early in the film, where Christian Bale‘s Cheney is learning the ins and outs of politics from Steve Carell‘s Donald Rumsfeld. McKay talked about the scene previously, and verified it would be included on the Blu-ray release. Now, as the Blu-ray and digital release approaches, the scene is finally available for all to see. Watch the Vice musical number below.

spider-man into the spider-verse featurette

There’s been no recent major movie release as inventive and bold as Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, so it’s no wonder that its Blu-ray and home video release is jam-packed with special features. On the heels of teasing a bunch of concept art and video clips to advertise the release of the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Blu-ray, Sony has dropped even more behind-the-scenes clips, this time focusing on one breakout character: Spider-Ham.

The fan-favorite character, voiced by John Mulaney, is the star of the latest Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse featurette and the focus of the new concept art accompanying it. Learn more about how Spider-Ham was conceptualized and brought to life below.

Brick Blu-ray

Believe it or not, Rian Johnson‘s debut feature Brick has never been released on Blu-ray in America (only in Canada, America’s hat). That’s about to change. Kino Lorber Studio Classics will be releasing Johnson’s high school noir film on Blu-ray in May, and it’s going to be loaded with extras. The 2005 film took hard boiled detective tropes (and dialogue) and dropped them into a modern-day high school setting, with incredible results. More on the Brick Blu-ray below.

The Abyss Blu-ray

James Cameron‘s The Abyss has been a long sought after item for Blu-ray collectors. While the 1989 sci-fi action film was released on DVD, it has yet to find its way to Blu-ray. But that might be about to change. Skip Kimball, someone who has worked in the editorial department on Cameron-related films Avatar and Alita: Battle Angel, just revealed what might be the 4K remastering of The Abyss. Fingers crossed this isn’t a huge prank.

New Blu-ray Releases Creed II

Last month, Samsung announced they would no longer produce Blu-ray players. It gave physical media fans – like me, and presumably you, if you’re reading this column – pause. The reasoning could be because Samsung’s 4K technology has been subpar in compared to others. Or it could spell the beginning of the end – a sign that Blu-ray will soon go the way of VHS. It’s not a pleasant thought. For now, Blu-ray is here, and I can only hope it’s here to stay. For now, let’s treasure it while it’s still around. And what better way to do that than by reading a few thousand words I’ve cobbled together on the latest new releases? These are the new Blu-ray releases and their special features you should check out this week and beyond.

Alien has been released on Blu-ray approximately 400 times, but here comes a new one anyway! To mark the 40th anniversary of Ridley Scott‘s horror/sci-fi classic, an Alien 4K Blu-ray will find its way to shelves in April. Even if you already own one of the many previous releases, it might be worth upgrading for the new 4K transfer.

And that’s not all the Alien related news we have! Thanks to creature designer Carlos Huantes, we now know that Noomi Rapace‘s character had a much bigger part in early drafts of Alien: Covenant.
