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.

captain-america-the-winter-soldier-blooper-reel

We showed you some deleted scenes this morning, but with a month to go until the Blu-ray and DVD of the film hit shelves it appears as though we’re being inundated with special features from Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  Now we’re getting a teaser for a blooper reel from the film that, even at a scant 45 seconds, constitutes at least 10% of my exposure to this movie.  In fact, I may be the only person working for this site that hasn’t seen the film, so maybe I’ll be checking it out on one of the aforementioned physical media discs.  Not sure if I’ve ever seen a Robert Redford “blooper” before today.

Hit the jump to check out the Captain America: The Winter Soldier blooper reel. The film also stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Anthony Mackie, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. JacksonCaptain America: The Winter Soldier will be available to own on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, and DVD on September 9th.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition details have finally been released.  The extended version of Peter Jackson’s second film in his Hobbit trilogy adds 25 minutes to the running time, bringing the grand total up to 186 minutes.  That’s up from the 13 minutes added to An Unexpected Journey, but relatively tame compared to the Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings, the shortest of which clocked in at 218 minutes.  In addition to the added footage, the Extended Edition of The Desolation of Smaug also includes nine hours of new special features, including audio commentary with Jackson and co-writer Philippa Boyens and The Appendicies, a multi-part documentary focusing on various aspects of the film and trilogy.

BLAZING SADDLES 40th Anniversary Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 78 days ago

blazing-saddles-blu-ray-review

Warner Brothers must have both wanted to capitalize and mock the release of Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West, as they’ve just created a slightly new special edition of Blazing Saddles for the film’s 40th anniversary.  There was no way (and no offense to MacFarlane) that he could match or top Mel Brooks’ film, which is hard to call his masterpiece or even the best film he directed that year.  But that’s only because in 1974 both it and Young Frankenstein were released.  Which is the better movie boils down to preference.  That said, I prefer Saddles.  The film stars Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder, Harvey Korman and Madeline Kahn in this Western send up, and my Blazing Saddles Blu-ray review follows after the jump.

Even though I don’t love every single one of his movies, Steven Spielberg will always be one of my favorite directors.  He was one of the key figures in making me a die-hard movie fan.  His worldwide influence is undeniable, he shaped Hollywood in the modern era, and he’s been going strong for decades (there are going to be so many Jaws retrospective pieces next year for the film’s 40th anniversary).  This fall, Universal will release a new 8-film Blu-ray collection of his work.  The Steven Spielberg Director’s Collection will include digitally remastered versions of Duel and The Sugarland Express (both their first time on Blu-ray, and the first-ever widescreen presentation for Duel in the U.S. and Canada) as well as the Blu-ray debuts for 1941 (theatrical and extended versions) and Always.  The set also includes Jaws, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Jurassic Park, and The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

Hit the jump for a list of special features.  Click here to pre-order.  The Steven Spielberg Director’s Collection will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on October 14th.
