Not in 2-D Kansas anymore: 3-D 'Wizard of Oz' is coming to home video in 2013

Next fall, there will be no place like home — provided one’s home is equipped with a 3-D television.

Warner Bros. announced today that a new 3-D conversion of The Wizard of Oz is coming to DVD and Blu-ray in 2013. The release is part of the studio’s 90th anniversary celebration; a special 100 film DVD collection and 50 film Blu-ray collection will also be released in honor of this milestone. Additionally, the studio has put together a pair of documentaries — Tales from the Warner Bros. Lot and The Warner Bros. Lot Tour, which gives viewers a virtual version of the tour given at Warner’s Burbank headquarters.

The Wizard of Oz first hit theaters in 1939. In 2009, a four-disc 70th anniversary edition of the film was released on Blu-Ray; it included a variety of production documentaries, outtakes, and still galleries, but only two dimensions.

Director Joe Dante on his long-awaited, family-friendly horror movie 'The Hole'

the-hole-poster.jpg

In director Joe Dante’s new movie The Hole a pair of young brothers (Chris Massoglia, Nathan Gamble) and their neighbor (Haley Bennett) investigate a mysterious chasm in the basement of the siblings’ house and are forced to deal with the array of terrifying unpleasantness which emerges from said aperture. Like Dante’s pair of Gremlins movies, the result is a family-friendly venture which may have younger clan members viewing the action through trembling fingers. “It’s my revenge,” laughs Dante. “That’s how I watched Tarantula in 1955. I forced my father to take me to see this giant spider movie and I’m so scared that I’m in the lobby peeking in. My poor father was left sitting alone watching a giant spider movie.”

'Dredd 3D': Check out the Mondo poster for tomorrow's Fantastic Fest screening -- EXCLUSIVE

dredd-3d

Splundig vur thrigg, Earthlets!

If you recognize that reference to the Judge Dredd strip-spawning U.K. comic 2000ADand its alien editor “Tharg” — then you, like me, may have been waiting upwards of 35 years for a decent movie featuring Mega-City One’s top cop to arrive in cinemas (don’t get me started on the Sly Stone-starring 1995 fiasco).

Judging by the current Rotten Tomatoes rating for Dredd 3D — and my colleague Darren Franich’s enthusiastic review of the film in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly — that wait will end this Friday when the Karl Urban-toplined actioner hits screens across the country. However, lucky attendees of this year’s Fantastic Fest shindig in Austin, Tex., will be seeing the film tomorrow at a screening attended by Urban, Olivia Thirlby, and screenwriter Alex Garland. To mark the occasion, the Alamo Drafthouse’s collectible art boutique arm Mondo has commissioned a special poster by the artist Jock that will be available to purchase at Fantastic Fest (any unpurchased posters will be sold online.)

You can inspect said artifact above and, in larger form, below (along with the Dredd 3D trailer). I think you’ll agree it’s pretty zarjaz. READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'Resident Evil' outswims 'Nemo' with $21.1 million; 'The Master' off to record-breaking start

It was a great weekend to be a director named Paul Anderson.

Not only did Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil: Retribution become his fourth straight Resident Evil film to debut atop the chart; Paul Thomas Anderson’s drama The Master had one of the best opening weekends of all time in limited release.

In first place, Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth entry in the stalwart horror/action franchise, earned $21.1 million — 21 percent less than 2010′s Resident Evil: Afterlife, which began with $26.7 million. This is the first time that a Resident Evil movie has earned less than its predecessor. The original Resident Evil earned $17.7 million in 2002. Resident Evil: Apocalypse grossed $23.0 million in 2004. Resident Evil: Extinction scored $23.7 million in 2007. Notably, Retribution, which is being distributed in 3-D and IMAX, also sold the fewest tickets of any of the Resident Evil films in its opening weekend.

Sony, who is distributing the $65 million Milla Jovovich (Paul W.S. Anderson’s wife) vehicle under its Screen Gems division, isn’t worried, though. The Resident Evil franchise’s international prospects have grown substantially over the last decade, and with a $50 million international start this weekend, Retribution has a good shot at finishing ahead of Afterlife‘s $296 million worldwide cume. Audiences issued the film a “C+” CinemaScore grade. READ FULL STORY

Judgment is coming to cinemas this Friday. No, we’re not referring to EW’s weekly film reviews — though you should definitely check those out as well — but rather the arrival in multiplexes of Dredd 3D.

Box office update: 'Resident Evil: Retribution' wins Friday with $8.4 million; 'The Master' huge in limited release

After a successful opening Friday, horror/action sequel Resident Evil: Retribution is headed for an easy weekend win — the fourth straight number one opening for a Resident Evil film.

Sony’s $65 million Retribution grossed $8.4 million on Friday, 22 percent less than the $10.7 million opening Friday of 2010′s Resident Evil: Afterlife, which ultimately found $26.7 million over its first three days. Retribution‘s gross puts it on pace for a $22 million weekend, which would be smaller than both 2006′s Resident Evil: Extinction ($23.7 million) and 2004′s Resident Evil: Apocalypse ($23.0 million), but ahead of franchise launchpad Resident Evil, which started with $17.7 million in 2002.

Box office preview: 'Finding Nemo' and 'Resident Evil' hope to boost an ailing market

After last weekend’s depressing box office frame, things are looking utterly swimming this time around, thanks to the 3-D re-release of Finding Nemo, which will likely top the chart.

Also opening this weekend is the fifth(!) Resident Evil film, which is headed for solid results, and faith-based title Last Ounce of Courage, which is being distributed by the same studio that pushed 2016: Obama’s America to financial success.

Here’s how the weekend box office might shake out: READ FULL STORY

'Texas Chainsaw 3D': First trailer -- VIDEO

TEXAS-CHAINSAW-MASSACRE-3D

Does the lack of the word “Massacre” in the freshly truncated title of Texas Chainsaw 3D indicate that this sequel to Tobe Hooper’s classic 1974 horror film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre will find Leatherface settling his problems through the power of rhetoric? Apparently not, judging by the movie’s first trailer which features mechanical woodcutting device-related mayhem aplenty.

Directed by John Luessenhop (Takers) and set for release on January 4, TC3D stars Dan Yeager as the axe-snubbing Leatherface and Alexandra Daddario as a woman who inherits a mansion with dank cellars. Are those cellars filled with vintage wine and aged cheeses? Again, judging by the trailer, it seems not.

You can watch the clip below. Take a look and tell us what you think.

Check out the trailer for animated Graham Chapman biopic 'A Liar's Autobiography' -- VIDEO

We haven’t heard much from Monty Python comedy team member Graham Chapman recently. Although, as directors Bill Jones and Ben Timlett point out in the production notes for their new animated Chapman biopic A Liar’s Autobiography, that’s mostly because the troubled funnyman has been dead since 1989.

Before his demise, however, Chapman recorded an audio version of his memoirs — also called A Liar’s Autobiography — and will thus be heard in the film alongside the freshly recorded voices of his fellow Pythons Terry Jones, John Cleese, Michael Palin, and Terry Gilliam.

Final 'Star Wars' prequels get back-to-back 3D releases

revenge-lightsaber

Blame Jar Jar Binks. In the wake of last winter’s successful 3-D release of The Phantom Menace, Lucasfilm has announced that the movie’s fellow prequels, Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, will be translated into the third dimension as well.

According to the official Star Wars Facebook page, these films will hit theaters again next fall. Clones will begin playing Sept. 20, 2013, while Sith will follow on Oct. 11.

George Lucas’s movies won’t be 2013′s only major re-releases. Universal announced two weeks ago that Jurassic Park 3D will debut on April 5, while Disney revealed in 2011 that enhanced versions of both Monsters, Inc. and The Little Mermaid will appear in theaters on Jan. 18 and Sept. 13, respectively.
