Amazon’s Gold Box Deal of the Day is Breaking Bad: The Complete Series on Blu-ray and DVD for up to 63% off.  Like all Gold Box Deals, prices are good while supplies last or midnight tonight.  If you’ve yet to pick up the complete series, which is definitely one of the best shows I’ve ever seen, I strongly recommend the Barrel Edition which is housed in a replica money barrel with extras like a “Los Pollos Hermanos” apron, a challenge coin designed by Vince Gilligan, and a lot more.  It’s on sale for $119.99 (which is about a hundred dollars cheaper than I’ve ever seen it).  Here are the links:

Benedict Cumberbatch Talks THE IMITATION GAME, Alan Turing, Future Projects, and Much More

by     Posted 17 days ago

Benedict-Cumberbatch-The-Imitation-Game-interview

Over the past few years, Benedict Cumberbatch has shown incredible range while bouncing from project to project, always delivering great performances.  If you’re one of the few that isn’t familiar with his name, I recommend watching Sherlock (where he plays Sherlock Holmes), The Fifth Estate (where he plays Julian Assange), and also going to your local movie theater to see his incredible work in director Morten Tyldum’s The Imitation Game.  The film is about Alan Turing (played by Cumberbatch), a brilliant cryptanalyst whose expertise cracked Germany’s “Enigma code” and helped turn the tide of World War II for the Allies, but his homosexuality still made him a target of persecution.  The film is really more about Turing than the war, but Tyldum weaves the Enigma plot throughout the film in a way that makes it feel like a spy thriller.

When I recently spoke to Cumberbatch to help promote the film, he talked about why he wanted to be part of this important movie, balancing fact versus fiction, what Turing helped invent, what it’s like being connected to so many highly anticipated new movies, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch and for more on the film, watch six clips, the trailer, or click here for all our previous coverage.

 Andy-Serkis-Star-Wars-Apes-3-Avengers-interview

With Matt Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes arriving on DVD and Blu-ray  December 2nd, I got the opportunity to sit down with Andy Serkis to talk about the film.  As I’ve said again and again, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is easily one of my favorite films of 2014.  It’s the rare commercial movie that’s deep and thoughtful and it’s also atypical in that it tells a complete story while keeping the door open for another sequel.

During the interview Serkis talked about the reception of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the challenges of performance capture, the status of the next sequel, the surprise of being included in the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, what it was like working for J.J. Abrams on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, his version of The Jungle Book, and more.  Hit the jump to check out what he said and click here to pre-order the Blu-ray on Amazon.

Sean AndersHorrible Bosses 2 is now in theaters with Jason BatemanCharlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis reprising their roles from the first film.  This time around they decide to be their own bosses by setting out on their own entrepreneurial venture.  When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) steals their idea, they decide to kidnap his son (Chris Pine) and hold him for ransom.  Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, and Jamie Foxx all return for the sequel.  While Horrible Bosses 2 isn’t going to win any awards, I’ll admit that I laughed a lot mostly from the great chemistry between Bateman, Day and Sudeikis.  For more on the film, watch some clips, read Matt’s review, watch the trailer, or here’s all our previous coverage.

At the Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive interview with Christoph Waltz.  He talked about how he got involved in the project, how he prepares for a role and if he does anything different for a comedy, if his process has changed over his career, what it was like working with Tim Burton on Big Eyes, collaborating with director David Yates on Tarzan, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to either read or watch what he had to say.

 Morten-Tyldum-The-Imitation-Game-interview

With the year coming to a close, it seems like a great new movie hits theaters every weekend, and The Weinstein Company continues that trend on November 28th with The Imitation Game.  Directed by Morten Tyldum (Headhunters), the film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, a brilliant cryptanalyst whose expertise cracked Germany’s “Enigma code” and helped turn the tide of World War II for the Allies, but his homosexuality still made him a target of persecution.  The film is really more about Turing than the war, but Tyldum weaves the Enigma plot throughout the film in a way that makes it feel like a spy thriller.

During my exclusive video interview with Morten Tyldum, he talked about trying to be historically accurate, filming in real places, if he had many deleted scenes, balancing fact versus fiction, what he learned from friends and family screenings, what sequences he worked on again and again to get them right, and loads more.  Hit the jump to watch.  The Imitation Game also star Keira KnightleyMatthew GoodeCharles DanceMark StrongRory KinnearAllen Leech and Matthew Beard and will likely be a strong awards season contender this year.  For more on the film, watch six clips, the trailer, or click here for all our previous coverage.
