Star Wars Trilogy On Blu-ray Uncut To Be Released In Near Future

For a long time Star Wars fans have been clamoring for Disney/Lucasfilm to re-release the original, unaltered cut of the first Star Wars trilogy, and  has now confirmed with two independent reliable sources that just such a plan is under way. According to our sources, Disney has plans to release the original cut of the Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray. Our sources indicate that the project has been under way for quite some time, but it’s been challenging because of some damage to the original negatives they are utilizing. The goal is to release A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back, and Return of Jedi in their complete, unaltered, original form without the redone special edition SFX. Our sources did not have an exact date as to when the original cut of the Star Wars Trilogy would be released on Blu-ray, due to the challenges Disney has encountered in pulling everything together. However, our sources indicated the goal is to have it ready and released before Star Wars Episode V

The Expendables 3 Tanks At The Box Office

Lionsgate and Millennium Films' The Expendables 3 opened to a muted $875,000 Thursday night from more than 2,200 locations. While on par with the $870,000 earned by The Expendables and ahead of the $685,000 grossed by the sequel, the threequel rolled out at 7 p.m., compared to midnight for the first two films. To boot, The Weinstein Co. and Walden Media's new YA film adaptation The Giver wasn't far behind, pulling in $750,000. Expendables 3 , featuring a multigenerational lineup of action stars, is expected to take in $20 million to $25 million for the weekend, a series low. In addition to potential franchise fatigue, a pristine copy of the film leaked on the Internet is likely to hurt grosses, much like what happened when X-Men Origins: Wolverine was pirated before its release in 2009. The weekend's other new offerings are the R-rated comedy Let's Be Cops , which got a jump on the competition by opening Wednesday, and The Giver. A trio of specialty films

THE GIVER Review. No One Can Help This Ship From Sinking

Jeff Bridges  and  Meryl Streep , can’t help this ship from sinking. Look who's back with another review. RAMA . I want to thank him again for reviewing the film. Make sure to follow him on Facebook and twitter . I’ve never read the book yet, so I’m not the millions who say that THE GIVER is one of their childhood favorite but as a movie, I just don’t see anything special about it. The story or the concept may be special and unique or groundbreaking when it first hit the shelves, but to have it now, in a sea of other dystopian utopia formulaic young adult stories like it, THE GIVER just seems too late, too familiar, and too flat, there’s nothing extraordinary about this film, which is heartbreaking considering I’m a huge fan of director Phillip Noyce’s ‘Jack Ryan’ movies and that THE GIVER also showcases such greats as Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep , but even they can’t help this ship from sinking. Brenton Thwaites, Odeya Rush, and Cameron Monaghan play three

A new “ Dancing Groot ” clip from Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate sta

The Expendables 3 Review: The Indescribable Expendability of Dumb

Slight improvements keep the brainless The Expendables 3 off life support...barely. These days, 60 is apparently the new 30 and what better what to celebrate such an inappropriate consideration than to see a bunch of old dudes try to remain relevant in an industry that seems ready to show many of them the front door? This is The Expendables 3 , a measurably better experience than previous entries, but still of little value beyond mindless action apathy. With a smaller team, Barney (Sylvester Stallone) and his friends (Jason Staitham, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, and Dolph Lungren) raid a prison train to liberate the maniac Doc (Wesley Snipes) for what he calls 'tax evasion.' But soon the team is caught in a deadly shootout with Barney's former Expendable buddy Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), whose love of gunpowder and large-scale death is equally only by his love for fine art. When a teammate goes down, Barney decides to protect his friends by hiring a younger c

TV Review: Tyrant “Meet The New Boss”

TV Review: Tyrant “Meet the New Boss” By: Brandon Wolfe The crux of ‘Tyrant’s’ first (and hopefully only) season finally locks into place in “Meet the New Boss” as Bassam begins the preliminary stages of a coup against Jamal, drawing in allies to remove his brother from office. This is the character arc that Bassam has had earmarked since the pilot, embarking on a journey from wanting nothing to do with his country or legacy to gradually developing an inevitable thirst for power. After the debacle with the sheik’s death, Bassam has decided that Jamal’s incendiary temper makes him unfit to rule Abuddin, which is almost certainly true, but one begins to wonder how much of Bassam’s drive is truly motivated by what is best for his country versus what his own ego suddenly demands. You’re going to keep wondering about that, too, because Adam Rayner isn’t getting across any of the ruthless ambition fueling Bassam. This is very much the Walter White character template being played

Tom Hiddleston To Star In Ben-Hur?

Deadline is reporting MGM, Paramount and Timur Bekmambetov set a February 26, 2016, release date on an epic remake of Ben-Hur ; have they found their chariot driver in Tom Hiddleston ? I hear that he’s the one the studios are courting to play Judah Ben-Hur in the adaptation of the 1880 Lew Wallace novel Ben-Hur: A Tale Of The Christ , which was the biggest-selling novel of its time until it was eclipsed by Gone With The Wind . Hiddleston isn't being fitted for a toga just yet. He has other projects vying for his services, including the MGM pic Me Before You. Keith Clarke, who scripted the Peter Weir-directed The Way Back, wrote the script that MGM pounced on after that company got ambitious following its emergence from bankruptcy and huge hits in Skyfall and The Hobbit. Mark Burnett and Roma Downey joined Sean Daniel and Joni Levin as producers, with Clarke and Jason Brown exec producing. Oscar-winning 12 Years A Slave scribe John Ridley wrote the last draft. MGM released

Betty Boop Film Could Be On It's Way

The desire to turn every recognizable property into a film franchise is nothing new. Now the Eye of Sauron-alike gaze of the entertainment industry has turned once again to Betty Boop , the 1930s cartoon icon. Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment has entered a partnership with Animal Logic Entertainment – the animation company behind Happy Feet’s dancing penguins and The Lego Movie’s bricktacular – to nab the rights from Fleischer Studios for what is described in Variety’s report as a music-driven hybrid animated comedy. Betty has been around since 1930, appearing in numerous Talkartoons from Max Fleischer and then her own cartoon series. An animated superstar, she’s since shown up in a wealth of shorts and other shows and has become a licensing goldmine, flogging everything from Chupa Chups to NASCAR in her time. On the big screen, she made a cameo in 1988’s ‘toon-laden Who Framed Roger Rabbit. “Betty is an icon, and one of the biggest stars in the world – I’m thrilled to be wo

Aquaman Gets Two Separate Writers

Will Beall , who wrote ' Gangster Squad ,' and Kurt Johnstad , who wrote ' 300: Rise of an Empire ,' are tackling two separate scripts for Warner Bros. The scribes are writing — separately — scripts for Aquaman , one of the installments in Warner Bros.’ multimovie scheme to create a cinematic universe based on the DC Entertainment characters. Aquaman is being developed on dual tracks, where studios and producers hire two separate writers to work on the same project in the hopes of getting the best version. The practice allows for release dates to be set while a project is still in development while giving it a muscular push. Warners needs just that as last week it dated nine untitled DC movies between 2016 and 2020. Warners is not revealing which one of those will be Aquaman , but the first untitled DC movie is due for release on Aug. 5, 2016, with two more due in 2017, on June 23 and Nov. 17, respectively. Aquaman is one of comicdom’s classic characters, having

Shannyn Sossamon Set To Star In Sinister Sequel

Following the success of 2012’s Ethan Hawke -led horror pic Sinister , the Blumhouse Productions team is going the Purge route for the sequel: maintain the concept, and swap out Hawke for new faces. Well, one new face so far, As Shannyn Sossamon is set to star in the next instalment. James Ransone is returning from the first Sinister as the Sherriff’s Deputy who tried to help Hawke with the terror-infused home movies he found in his family’s new home. This time around, he’ll be coming to the aid of Sossamon’s single mum, who herself moves into a rural house with her nine-year-old twins, only to discover that the place is loaded with creepy supernatural phenomena. You really think the estate agent would have mentioned that alongside the healthy yard space. Citadel director Ciaran Foy is taking over the megaphone for this one, working from a script Scott Derrickson wrote with Sinister collaborator C. Robert Cargill. The cameras are set to start rolling next week in Chicago and U
