'Cabin in the Woods' director Drew Goddard on his lost weekend with Joss Whedon -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In the spring of 2007, Drew Goddard — who’d gotten his start in Hollywood writing on Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and moved on to write episodes of AngelAliasLost, and the monster movie Cloverfield — was approached by Whedon with a crazy idea: Lock themselves in a hotel room for a weekend to write a horror movie. And not just any fright fest, but one that would work as a straightforward horror flick while also being somehow about the entire genre of horror flicks. Naturally, Goddard said yes.

Two years later, Goddard was directing, and Whedon producing, The Cabin in the Woods, but thanks to the MGM bankruptcy, it wasn’t until the film premiered at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival that audiences got a chance to see it. It subsequently opened in theaters to rave reviews and an instant cult following, and in this exclusive clip from the Blu-ray (out Sept. 18), Whedon and Goddard talk about that lost weekend that got it all started. Check it out below, and then read on for Goddard’s further thoughts on working with Whedon, writing Steven Spielberg’s upcoming action spectacular Robopocalypse, as well as some seriously SPOILER-y talk about Cabin‘s much-discussed ending.  READ FULL STORY

'Titanic' on Blu-ray: James Cameron on how he dodged disaster -- VIDEO

James Cameron isn’t the kind of man to be hampered by self-doubt. But during the darkest days of the making of Titanic, when the budget was skyrocketing, deadlines were bearing down, and the press was circling in gleeful anticipation of a disaster, even the man behind The Terminator and Aliens felt his confidence shaken. “I had a razor blade taped to the screen of my Avid [editing machine] with a note on it saying, ‘Use in case the film sucks,'” admits Cameron. “When everybody — everybody — doubts you, it’s hard not to doubt yourself. But I was looking at the footage, saying, ‘Guys, I’m seeing a good movie here.'”

It wasn’t just a good movie. Titanic was the type of artistic and popular success that occurs maybe once every generation. It won 11 Academy Awards and became the highest-grossing film of all time. It made Kate Winslet a star and Leonardo DiCaprio an icon. If Cameron himself didn’t become King of the World, as he boldly proclaimed at the Oscars, he certainly was anointed King of Hollywood, a title that was only reinforced when he defied the odds again years later with box office topper Avatar.

Fifteen years after Cameron’s Titanic sailed, the epic is available today on Blu-ray for the first time. The director checked in from anniversary celebrations in Ireland to recall the near disaster behind his disaster film. READ FULL STORY

Kristen Stewart shows off her bruises from 'Snow White and the Huntsman' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In Snow White and the Huntsman, Kristen Stewart famously transformed the demure, domestic heroine from the famed fairy tale into a scrappy, no-nonsense fighter willing to strap on a suit of armor to battle Charlize Theron’s evil queen. Just don’t call the character a warrior.

“I don’t suddenly turn into a warrior,” says Stewart in this exclusive look at one of the behind-the-scenes features on the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman Blu-ray (out this Tuesday, Sept. 11). “She hasn’t learned how to fight, and she doesn’t want to.”

That doesn’t mean Snow White avoids conflict. “I get the crap beat out of me,” says Stewart with a smile — and she’s got the bruises to prove it! Check out the clip below:  READ FULL STORY

Briefcase lawsuit delays Marvel's 'Phase One' box set until next spring -- EXCLUSIVE

So close …

Marvel Studios’ massive box set collection of its “Phase One” series of movies — everything from 2008’s Iron Man to last May’s The Avengers — will no longer be released on Sept. 25, but will instead be pushed back to an unspecified date next spring, according to sources at parent company Disney.

The holdup … ? The packaging.

A German luggage firm has filed a lawsuit alleging that the silver briefcase for the six-movie collection is too similar to one of its products. READ FULL STORY

Report: 'Dark Knight Rises' Blu-ray rumored to include Director's Cut

Maybe, just maybe, we’ll be able to find out just what Bane meant when he said, “You only adopted the dark; I was born in it.” (Or, more accurately, “rawrrkkkssofffflll bbrrooddmmmm.”)

Rumors are circulating on the internet that the Blu-ray release of The Dark Knight Rises could include an extended director’s cut. Alleged to run a full 30 minutes longer than the 165-minute theatrical cut, the extended version is said to feature scenes depicting Bane’s origin and more screen time for Liam Neeson’s Ra’s Al Ghul.

Here’s why we’re skeptical:

1. It’s a rumor.  On the internet.
2. Nolan has never released extended director’s cuts of any of his other feature films.
3. As a perfectionist, it’s unlikely that Nolan gave the OK to a truncated or incomplete film for wide release. READ FULL STORY

Rihanna on how 'Battleship' helped her shake 'being a celebrity' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

rihanna

When director Peter Berg told EW earlier this year about offering Rihanna the role of a tough weapons officer in Battleship, he said she had one condition: “She said, ‘I’ll do it, but please you have to promise me you won’t treat me special, you’ll treat me like you would any other actor, you’ll make me work and you won’t go easy on me.'”

But in this exclusive sneak peek at a behind-the-scenes featurette on the Battleship Blu-ray and DVD (out Aug. 28), Rihanna sees it the other way around. As she puts it, it was Berg who “really got me out of the mentality of being a celebrity, or ‘Rihanna.'” Clearly, the two hold a mutual appreciation; be sure to listen for the moment after Rihanna finishes shooting a scene when Berg proclaims, “That’s hoooooooooot!” Check out the clip below:

Review: 'The Hunger Games' on DVD and Blu-ray

The temptation to pat yourself on the back after making a movie that grossed $650 million worldwide must be overwhelming. At least, that’s the impression you get watching the new two-disc set of The Hunger Games (2012, PG-13, 2 hrs., 22 mins.)

As anyone who’s seen the teen blood-sport adventure knows, director Gary Ross and his trio of young stars (Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, and Liam Hemsworth) did a pretty remarkable job of staying true to the spirit of Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel and delivering the goods without dumbing things down. They gave the book’s rabid fan base exactly what they wanted — at least within the parameters of a relatively gore-free PG-13 rating. So bravo to them. We can’t wait for next year’s sequel, Catching Fire.

That said, the more than three hours of extras left me a little… hungry. READ FULL STORY

'Sunset Boulevard' Blu-ray -- You voted. See the new cover.

Last month, we asked EW.com readers to help Paramount select the cover image for the new Sunset Boulevard Blu-ray. Director Billy Wilder’s 1950 classic about a haunting silent-era movie star Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson) who hungers for a great comeback arrives on Blu-ray for the first time on Nov. 6, and 59 percent of voters opted for the red version of an original movie poster, with Desmond lurking over hack screenwriter Joe Gillis (William Holden) and his new girlfriend (Nancy Olson).

For my money, Sunset Boulevard remains the greatest Hollywood movie about itself ever made, a warped fun-house mirror of the town and industry that nevertheless captures many of its ugly truths. Watch a clip below: READ FULL STORY

'The Shark is Still Working': The story behind the great doc on the new 'Jaws' Blu-ray -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

jaws

J. Michael Roddy was only six years old in the summer of 1975, but like the rest of the country, he developed shark fever after seeing Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. “There are two things that are really cool to a six year old boy, and that’s dinosaurs and sharks,” says Roddy. “I begged my parents to let me see Jaws, and it was the first time I remember being completely lost in a film. It changed my life.”

Roddy isn’t alone. Jaws changed a lot of people’s lives, beginning with the then 28-year-old Spielberg himself. But in The Shark is Still Working, the splendid Jaws documentary that Roddy produced that’s a bonus on the remastered Blu-ray version of the film available next week, a generation of filmmakers who shared Roddy’s fascination — including Kevin Smith, M. Night Shyamalan, and Bryan Singer — delight in the nerdy details and lasting legacy of Hollywood’s first summer blockbuster. “The intensity of the passion is what surprised me,” says Roddy. “Because it made us feel like, ‘Okay we’re not crazy. Everyone loves that film.'”
