While you may still be busy planning your second (or third, or fourth) trip to see Guardians of the Galaxy in theaters, you’ll be able to revisit Marvel Studios’ other massive 2014 hit very soon.  In anticipation of the release of the Captain America sequel on home video, we here at Collider are happy to debut an exclusive Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray clip that offers a behind-the-scenes look at Sebastian Stan’s stunt preparation for the film.  In order to properly portray the titular Winter Soldier, Stan went through extensive stunt training that involved getting extremely familiar with his knife and learning the choreography of the fight sequences, which Stan likens to learning a dance.  This is but a small peek at one of the various making-of featurettes that are included on the Winter Soldier Blu-ray.

Hit the jump to watch the Captain America: The Winter Soldier Blu-ray clip.  The film will be available on Digital 3D, Digital HD, and Disney Movies Anywhere starting August 19th, and will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and 3D Combo Pack on September 9th.

Watch Over 9 Minutes of Behind-the-Scenes SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Footage

The Weinstein Company has released over nine minutes of behind-the-scenes Sin City: A Dame to Kill For footage that offers a look at how directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller brought the sequel to fruition.  If you’re curious to see just how many actual sets were used (spoiler alert: the answer is basically zero) in the making of Sin City 2, this b-roll is an interesting watch.  Regardless of the quality of the finished film, the actors are all essentially playing pretend in a giant green sandbox with very little to work with by way of atmosphere or environment.  It’s certainly a challenging working process, and while blockbuster films all use greenscreen to some degree, Rodriguez pushes the lack of live-action elements to the limit.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Clip Features Turtle Beatboxing, Shredder and More

by     Posted 21 days ago

I don’t even know where to begin with this first clip from Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles because there are actually quite a few elements worth highlighting.  First off, it delivers a solid laugh courtesy of a mid-chase Turtles beatbox session, then they run right into Shredder and after that, we finally hear one of our heroes shout an iconic Turtles catchphrase.  It’s pretty satisfying for less than two minutes of material.

You can catch the Turtles in action in the clip after the jump and, in case you missed it, we’ve also got some set visit coverage up and running including a main report and an interview with Megan Fox and Will Arnett as well as a bunch of brand new stills from the film.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arrives in theaters on Friday, August 8th and also stars William Fichtner, Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub.

CBS Films has released six What If clips along with a behind-the-scenes featurette.  The film stars Daniel Radcliffe as a medical school dropout who strikes up a friendly relationship with a young animator (Zoe Kazan), but they start to wonder if the chemistry between them outweighs her relationship with her longtime boyfriend (Rafe Spall).  I really enjoyed the film when I saw it at TIFF last year (back when it had the better title “The F Word“), and I look forward to seeing it again when it opens later this month.

Hit the jump to check out the What If clips and featurette.  The film also stars Adam Driver, Mackenzie Davis, Megan Park, and Oona Chaplin.  What If opens in limited release on August 8th and expands nationwide on August 22nd.

Watch: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Easter Eggs Revealed

There’s no denying the fact that Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy was a crossover hit.  You don’t make over $90 million opening weekend if you only attract the comics crowd, and director James Gunn’s fun and humorous space opera seems to have connected well with the moviegoing public at large.  As with all Marvel movies, Guardians was packed with its fair share of Easter eggs and nods both to the other films and the comic book source material, but if you’re like me and somewhat unfamiliar with the comics, many of these probably went over your head.  Not to worry, though, as a video has already been put together that runs down some of the bigger references seen throughout the film.  While it’s a stretch to call some of these “Easter eggs”—in fact most are just obvious references to the comics—the video still serves as an informative explanation of some of the comics origins, as well as a fun heads up of things to look for on a future viewing.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Deleted Scene Tests Maria Hill’s Loyalties

With the Blu-ray/DVD a little over a month away, the first Captain America: The Winter Soldier deleted scene has found its way online.  The scene features Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), which is always a good thing, although since it was left on the cutting room floor, I’m also somewhat disappointed.  What I like about this scene is that it reveals Hill’s ability to level veiled threats and deceive the people around her.  The scene defines her more as a spy than a soldier, and while I can understand that this scene is a bit superfluous, it still fits in nicely with soldier/spy conflict represented by Captain America and Black Widow.

Remember when you still had hope that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 could be a solid sequel?   Now you can relive those 10 minutes because the opening sequence of Marc Webb’s second go-around with the hero is here.  Having seen the film, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that it never came together, but this sequence does serve as a reminder that there were some cool parts to it.

New LIFE AFTER BETH Clips Tease Comedy Over Horror

I’m not gonna lie, I’m sort of excited for Life After Beth.  I’ve heard that director Jeff Baena’s film is fun yet slight, but it seems like the kind of slight I could get into.  And A24 has just released two clips that continue to further my anticipation of a film I might enjoy in the most casual of ways.  The film stars Dane DeHaan as a young man whose girlfriend (Aubrey Plaza) comes back from the dead, only to start deteriorating into a flesh-craving zombie.  One of these new clips highlights the apparent fact that smooth jazz can soothe a zombie while the other is more of a John Hughes-ish look at the dynamic between DeHaan and his older brother in the film that has a bit of a “Wyatt vs. Chet” Weird Science vibe.

Hit the jump to watch the Life After Beth clips. You can also check out Adam’s Sundance interviews with Plaza & DeHaan and writer/director Jeff Baena.  The film also stars Matthew Gray Gubler, Paul Reiser, Anna Kendrick, and Cheryl HinesLife After Beth debuts exclusively on DirecTV on July 17th and opens in limited release on August 15th.

Watch: Every Marvel Easter Egg Explained Through THOR: THE DARK WORLD

marvel-easter-eggs-explained

When Marvel Studios kicked off its first independent production with Iron Man in 2008, few could have predicted that it would become the juggernaut that it is today.  “Marvel” is no longer just the company, it’s the brand name.  This is why Guardians of the Galaxy is much less of a risk than people might think; a “Marvel Movie” is a massive selling point in and of itself.  One of the benefits of the autonomy that Marvel Studios has enjoyed over the past few years is the ability to pepper its films with Easter Eggs that actually pay off, rather than ones that are just simply sly nods to the source material that never go anywhere (though there are a few of those too).  In celebration of this weekend’s release of Guardians of the Galaxy, a video has been put together that points out every single Easter Egg in the Marvel films through Thor: The Dark World, from obvious ones like Cap’s shield in Iron Man to more obscure comics references.

DIVERGENT Deleted Scene Reveals Edward’s Eye Stabbing

If you’ve read Divergent, you probably noticed that one particularly unforgettable scene never made it into the movie – the eye stabbing.  In the book, during Dauntless initiation, the #1 ranking transfer initiate, Edward (Ben Lamb), is stabbed in the eye in the middle of the night.  It’s a pretty brutal moment in the book, so it is reasonable that they opted to cut it from a PG-13-rated film, but they actually did shoot it and it’ll be on the Divergent DVD and Blu-ray special features menu.

You can’t get a copy until August 5th, but Summit opted to unveil the long lost stabbing scene a little early.  Hit the jump to check out the Divergent deleted scene and also to find out what Lamb himself had to say about shooting it during our set visitDivergent also stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Jai Courtney, Zoe Kravitz, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort and Kate Winslet.

Watch: DEADPOOL Test Footage Featuring Ryan Reynolds

The R-rated superhero movie is kind of the Holy Grail nowadays, with the superhero genre at the height of its popularity.  As studios aim to find new ways of adapting the various comic book properties, fans are eager to see one of the big dogs—Marvel Studios, Warner Bros./DC, and 20th Century Fox—take a leap of faith and greenlight a more adult-geared adaptation.  One such property that was essentially made to break down this barrier is Deadpool, and Fox has been developing an adaptation of the comic for some time with Ryan Reynolds attached to star.  The key is finding the right budget to justify an R-rating, which excludes a hefty portion of the traditional target demo for comic book movies.  Tim Miller was most recently attached to direct, and he put together a reel of test footage to show executives what a Deadpool movie look like.  That footage has leaked online, and it’s kind of fantastic.  Reynolds feels perfect for the role, and the tone is spot on.

New GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Clip Has a Finger on the Pulse of the Film’s Humor

We’re walking a fine line with Marvel’s marketing for Guardians of the Galaxy, with one side being in danger of giving away too much and the other offering teases to fans and newcomers alike.  In the last four days alone, we’ve seen not one, but two clips from the film.  Now, since audience reactions to an early screening were overwhelmingly positive, perhaps they want to encourage that great word of mouth with yet another clip.  This one does a solid job of not only showing off the film’s sense of humor, but further exploring the relationships between the characters early on in their tenuous arrangement.  Good stuff, but I’ve already seen more than enough to convince me to check this one out in theaters.

Starring Chris PrattZoe SaldanaDave BautistaLee PaceKaren GillanGlenn CloseBenicio Del ToroMichael RookerJohn C. Reilly, and Peter Serafinowicz, and featuring the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin DieselGuardians of the Galaxy opens August 1st.  Hit the jump to check out the latest clip.

We’ve come a long way since Twister’s flying cows.  We’ve already seen loads of destruction in the first two trailers for Steven Quale’s Into the Storm and also read quite a bit about it in Dave’s set visit reports, but now it’s time to get a sense of what just a single one of these tornados is capable of in the very first clip from the film.

When the town of Silverton is ravaged by a freak onslaught of twisters, Sarah Wayne Callies’ Allison, a meteorologist working alongside a team of storm chasers, is pretty much asking to have an up close and personal encounter with a vicious cyclone and, sure enough, she winds up getting closer than anyone.  Hit the jump to see what happens in the first Into the Storm clip.  The film will arrive in theaters on August 8th in 2D and IMAX, and also stars Richard Armitage, Matt Walsh, Alycia Debnam-CareyArlen Escarpeta, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle DavisJon Reep, and Scott Lawrence.

With just a little over a week to go until its big release, early Guardians of the Galaxy reactions are coming in and, as we told you yesterday, they’re tremendously positive.  There’s always been a chance this whole thing could go south considering it’s such an unusual and highly stylized Marvel film, but ever since that very first trailer dropped back in February, it really did seem like James Gunn pulled it off.  At this point we’ve got loads of quality promotional material to further prove Guardians could be a standout, all of these adoring first reactions, and now we can add a solid extended clip from the film to the collection, too.

The piece is nearly five minutes long and gives us some serious background on all five main characters and also an extensive look at what goes down when the team is thrown in The Kyln.  Guardians of the Galaxy arrives in theaters in 3D on August 1st.  It stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee PaceKaren GillanGlenn CloseBenicio Del ToroMichael RookerJohn C. Reilly, and Peter Serafinowicz, and features the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.  Hit the jump for the Guardians of the Galaxy extended clip.

Marvel has released the first Guardians of the Galaxy clip online, and it showcases a scene that should be familiar to anyone who has seen the trailers.  The scene focuses on Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) trying to take an orb only to be interrupted by Korath (Djimon Hounsou).  What’s interesting about the clip is how it plays in the larger context of a scene rather than cherry-picking the snappiest parts and leaving out the plot points as opposed to how we’ve seen the scene in the trailers.
