This release of the movie will have so many extra bits and pieces that you'll freak out fully.

Return of the Living Dead Collectors Edition Blu-ray is truly ghoulish

The Return of The Living Dead returns to physical format with a Collectors Edition Blu-ray that'll be published and released by the folks at SCREAM FACTORY.

Hotel Transylvania 2: behind the scenes with the film’s designers

Hotel Transylvania 2: behind the scenes with the film’s designers

Today we're going behind the scenes of Hotel Transylvania 2 to discover the insides of the stark contrast between the human world and the monster world. Production Design in this film runs deep, from initial construction of sets with digital pen and ink to set dressing before scenes are "filmed". The work that goes in to each scene in a top-notch digital film such as this is very, very easily lost on its intended audience - today we're going to see what a tragedy that is as we attempt to rectify.

You’re going to Mars, I went to NASA

You’re going to Mars, I went to NASA

I woke up at 5:30 AM after a string of nightmares about being left alone on a dusty red planet. Like a fool I'd eaten a gigantic piece of chocolate cake the night before while watching a set of tiny teaser clips of "The Martian" to mentally prepare for the next day, which was then, now, today. "It's OK," I told myself. "Stay calm. You're in Houston. You're on East NASA Parkway in the same hotel you'd checked in to the day before. Today you're going to go on a brief ride in a Mars rover and talk to an astronaut."

Back to the Future Delorean fully restored for 30th Anniversary

Back to the Future Delorean fully restored for 30th Anniversary

A full museum-quality restoration of the original Delorean time machine is done for the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future. Just one of a barrage of gestures pushed to the public by Universal Pictures this month in celebration and preparation for the anniversary of the film series is this restoration of the time machine itself. While many of the original bits and pieces were gone - either already on display in a real museum somewhere or straight-up stolen - the bulk of the car had been sitting in a lot in Hollywood for decades. Behold the rebuilding of the first classic.

Star Wars original theatrical cuts tipped for re-release

Star Wars original theatrical cuts tipped for re-release

This evening the re-release of the original Star Wars movies - the theatrical cuts of the movies, that is - has been tipped. Not announced by Lucasfilm or Disney, but tipped, by film director John Landis. Landis is a friend of George Lucas and apparently suggested to him that the original cuts of the first three Star Wars films would be re-released. Not necessarily on any sort of format - DVD, Blu-Ray, or anything specific that we know of - just re-released.

Hobbit “Five Armies” Extended Edition release dated with R-rating

The final installment of the "Extended Editions" of The Hobbit trilogy has been revealed this week. The Battle of the Five Armies will include 20 minutes of additional footage for the film itself, then will also include more than 9 hours of special features.

Back to the Future heads to theaters for 30th anniversary

Just as Star Wars did in 1997 for its 20th, Back to the Future will be re-released for its own 30th anniversary this year. This means that on the 21st of October, 2015, throughout the United States the original Back to the Future will be coming to a theater near you. While it's possible the entire trilogy will be delivered in one big go, we're to understand that each film will be released separately, for separate showings with separate tickets. So get your pocketbooks out.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie reboot in the works

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen movie reboot in the works

A new feature film reboot of the film "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" has been tipped with Fox entering development this week. Remember that less-than-successful film from 2003 based on the Alan Moore / Kevin O'Neill comic books that began publication in 1999? The one with Sean Connery as Allan Quatermain. No? You'd have to be a real nerd to remember that film, and an even bigger nerd to own the movie right this minute. I think you know where this is headed, oh one other person in the world that's got the DVD, good buddy.

Ultra HD Blu-ray discs announced, for when you can’t stream 4K

Ultra HD Blu-ray discs announced, for when you can’t stream 4K

Remember when movies and TV shows used to come in physical formats? No? Well, before everything was available to stream, we had these discs called Blu-rays, and before that they were DVDs. Sure, they're a step backwards compared to the convenience of streaming we have now, but as 4K becomes the standard of high-definition, your internet bandwidth may not have the chops to keep up. That where the new format of Ultra HD Blu-ray aims to step in.

Loki in Avengers Age of Ultron: now you see him, now you don’t

Loki in Avengers Age of Ultron: now you see him, now you don’t

You'll have to wait until the DVD/Blu-ray release to see Loki in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Scenes were filmed, we've found out this week, but in the end, they had to be cut. According to director Joss Whedon, "we did shoot something, but it didn't play." Sometimes you just have too many characters in a movie, apparently. Too many plots and too many pieces of action. Too much plot, and too much madness. Peter Jackson, meanwhile, was unavailable for comment on the situation.

The Simpsons to no longer see Blu-ray, DVD releases

If you've been a collector of the DVD sets of The Simpsons for the last few years, you're going to have some empty shelf space after the season 17 box. Revealed via a Twitter post from the series' showrunner Al Jean, Fox Home Entertainment has decided to stop releasing individual seasons on DVD and Blu-ray. While Jean and the show's other creators expressed disappointment in the change, Fox says the decision was based on the need to move away from physical formats and focus on digital.
