'The Wolverine' first look: Behind the scenes of the bullet train -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

wolverine-hugh-jackman.jpg

Movie magic is taken to another level when it comes to comic book films. What looks like an amazing fight sequence between mutants ends up being a few guys on a sound stage standing in front of a green screen. For example, how did director James Mangold and his crew make it appear that Hugh Jackman was fighting on top of a moving bullet train in The Wolverine? Well, it wasn’t easy. Think powerful fans, green screens, more fans, and some impressive stunt choreography.

We’ve got an exclusive look behind the scenes of the bullet train action below: READ FULL STORY

'Red 2' deleted scene: Helen Mirren speaks softly and carries a big grenade -- EXCLUSIVE

RED-2-MIRREN.jpg

An action movie like RED 2, which is based on characters from Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner’s comic book, isn’t exactly burdened with the restrictions of reality. Frank Moses (Bruce Willis) and his collection of Retired Extremely Dangerous operatives can blow up city blocks, surreptitiously hop-scotch across the globe, and ingeniously escape from the most dire of circumstances; and if some of their Houdini breakouts are borderline unbelievable, well… that’s part of the fun.

In RED 2, which arrives on Blu-ray tomorrow, Moses reunites with aging agents (Helen Mirren and John Malkovich) and his best gal (Mary-Louise Parker) to dismantle a secret cold-war weapon of mass destruction that was built by a semi-crazed physicist (Anthony Hopkins). At one point, time runs out on Mirren’s elegant killer, Victoria, and her MI6 superiors sign her death warrant. Pity the poor neophyte tasked with that assignment. Of course, she beats him senseless, but the movie simply ignored how she went from cold-clocking a would-be executioner to escaping detention and calling Frank from a London pay-phone. In a deleted scene from the new Blu-ray, we at least get to see how Mirren made her daring escape.

'2 Guns' Blu-ray: Director discusses sequel and the race to climb 'Everest' first -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

2-Guns-DVD-clip-2.jpg

Tucked in between this summer’s CG blockbusters was an old-school buddy-movie that proved to be irresistible fun. Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington played two bank robbers who shared only one thing in common: both were unaware that the other was working undercover. So when they knock off a bank they think is working with the drug cartels, only to find out that their stolen money really belongs to the CIA, all heck breaks loose. You could injure your neck trying to untangle all the back-stabbing and two-timing that unfolds… or you could just soak up the charming chemistry between the two alpha-male stars.

Baltasar Kormákur, who’d worked with Wahlberg on Contraband, revisits an action genre that ruled the 1980s, when big stars weren’t courting superhero roles and there was something fascinating about two big stars going head-to-head, like 48 HRS. or Tango & Cash. With 2 Guns‘ Blu-ray out on Tuesday, the Icelandic director discussed the prospects for a sequel, his new Everest movie with Jake Gyllenhaal and Josh Brolin, and what people don’t really appreciate enough about Mark Wahlberg.

'The World's End': Check out behind-the-scenes footage from the sci-fi comedy -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you like Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, comedies set in British pubs, loosely connected film triptychs, and killer robots, then you probably saw Edgar Wright‘s The World’s End when it was released earlier this year. If you didn’t? Well, that would be rather peculiar, given your interests. Regardless, November 19 sees the Blu-ray and DVD release of the film, which will be available for purchase both on its lonesome and as part of a Cornetto Trilogy pack, alongside Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz.

To suitably lubricate your laughing gear in preparation for next Tuesday, you can check out an exclusive clip from the World’s End bonus features below. How’s that for a slice of fried gold?

'Twilight Forever' DVD first look: Kristen Stewart got her rear end 'molded' to help Taylor Lautner? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Twilight-BTS.jpg

Prepare yourselves, Twihards. Your DVD collection is about to experience a Cullen invasion (the best kind of invasion!).

Tuesday marks the release of Twilight Forever: The Complete Saga on DVD and Blu-ray. Other than a high-definition look at Edward’s sparkling skin, this DVD set also comes with some special behind-the-scenes clips. For instance, did you know that Kristen Stewart got her rear end ‘molded’ in order to create a device that would help Taylor Lautner carry her around for long periods of time (think Jacob and Bella’s walk through the woods in Eclipse)? Well, thanks to an exclusive behind-the-scenes look, we have proof.

Turns out, Lautner carrying Stewart while reciting three pages worth of dialogue wasn’t as easy as it looked, especially after the third or fourth take. “I literally went and got my rear end molded to make this day easier on Taylor,” Stewart says. Check out the video below:

'Man of Steel' Blu-ray: The Superman story that needed to be told -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

“He’s the king of all superheroes. He exists in a weird way outside of comic-book culture.” — Zack Snyder

If Man of Steel wasn’t the king of all superhero movies, it was still an ambitious and exciting starting point for a new take on our most iconic caped character. Henry Cavill’s son of Krypton is an alien — always has been — and as writer David Goyer explains in an exclusive bonus video from the new Blu-ray, the Superman story that demanded to be told was one of first-contact. “You’re the answer,” Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner) tells his adopted son in the film. “You’re the answer to, ‘Are we alone in the universe?’”

In a lot of ways, and most certainly for the future of DC Comics’ grand plan, Superman is a giant gateway. His very existence opens the doors to a bigger, almost infinite, universe that an established — but Earth-bound — box-office brawler like Batman can’t really deliver, and Man of Steel set the table. Perhaps Superman is that White Knight that Bruce Wayne once envisioned who would make Batman’s burden unnecessary — but we know it won’t be a smooth or cordial handover in the upcoming sequel, Batman Vs. Superman.

In the exclusive video below from the Man of Steel Blu-ray, which arrives Nov. 11, the cast and crew discuss the never-ending obsession with the character of Superman. Love, like, or simply shrug at this past summer’s reboot, it’s difficult not to be excited about the next chapter.

'The Hobbit' Blu-ray: How the filmmakers restored dwarfish dignity -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

HOBBIT-DWARF-KING.jpg

In Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, dwarves were a mysterious race. Sure, there was Gimli, a loyal soldier of the Fellowship, but his kind were a scattered, weakened tribe symbolized by the remnants and relics found in the dark caves of Moria. One of the delights of The Hobbit, then, was the rehabilitation of dwarves, in the Tolkien universe and pop culture, in general. Bilbo Baggins is a mere hobbit, but the 13 dwarves who recruit him as a burglar on their quest are a diverse collection of characters — whom Jackson playfully referred to as “the little bastards” — led by the dashing Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage).

In the new Extended Edition Blu-ray for the film, which arrives in stores on Nov. 5, fans can revel in dwarfish delights, just as the film’s creators did. Before the movie, dwarves were still widely perceived as Snow White’s supporting characters, but that wouldn’t do for Jackson’s epic adventure that sends them to face a dragon. In one of the new extras, “Durin’s Folk: Creating the Dwarves,” the creative artists explain how they researched and revised the image of the dwarf from comic sideshow to courageous warrior. “I honestly believe that Peter is going to do for dwarves what Tolkien did for elves, removing what nursery rhyme and folktale has done, which is to diminish them,” says conceptual designer John Howe.

'Before Midnight' Blu-ray: Richard Linklater on the little trilogy that could -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

When Richard Linklater made Before Sunrise with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy in 1995, the chances of their adorable characters returning for a sequel, much less two, were as remote as the Greek island of Pserimos. Not only did the original, which captured the chance encounter of a grungy American guy named Jesse and a sophisticated French beauty named Celine as they spent less than a day in Vienna, gross just $5.5 million, but the characters’ soulful, Generation-X banter was the absolute antithesis of a modern movie franchise. Yet people who liked the film really liked the film. And since Linklater, Hawke, and Delpy enjoyed their very collaborative filmmaking experience, they reunited to co-write Before Sunset in 2004, which picked up the story nine years after Jesse and Celine had promised each other to meet up again six months after their meeting in Vienna. Turns out they did not, and Jesse had written a novel about their beautiful, coulda-been fling, which helps bring them back together in Paris. Critics swooned, the Academy nominated the trio for Best Original Screenplay, and everyone who loved the original turned out for the sequel: it grossed $5.8 million!

Clearly, money talks. So eight years later, Linklater got the band back together, packed their bags for Greece, and made Before Midnight. The cliffhanger of Before Sunset — will Jesse stay with Celine in Paris or leave to catch his plane for New York — is settled immediately: they’re married with children of their own. But their lives and love are more complicated than ever, and their story is richer and more layered as well. Their ambitions, their flaws, their insecurities all laid bare, Celine and Jesse have become surrogates for those early-20′s audiences who fell in love with Before Sunrise and now perhaps find themselves at difficult, reflective moments in their own relationships, asking “How did we get here?”

Since Before Midnight premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, Linklater, Hawke, and Delpy — who also co-wrote Midnight — have fielded repeated questions about Celine and Jesse’s future. Is this the end? Or should we expect another check-in in 2022? I’m bullish, especially since Midnight clobbered its predecessors at the box-office. And by clobbered, I mean it cleared more than $8.1 million. Obviously, this isn’t a trilogy built around box-office, but audiences don’t seem ready to say goodbye.

Before Midnight, which should get some Oscar buzz, is out on Blu-ray tomorrow. Below, in two exclusive video clips, Linklater discusses the sequels, how they came about, and what it’s like to collaborate with Delpy and Hawke. If nothing else, just let Graham Reynolds’s strumming score marinate over you. It can’t transport you to a Greek island, but it’s almost the next best thing on a Monday morning. READ FULL STORY

'Monsters University' Blu-ray: See the fourth-grade Mike/Sulley meeting that never happened -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Monsters-U-clip.jpg

Even before Monsters University opened in theaters in June, a few devout fans of the original 2001 movie expressed irritation that the prequel seemed to violate one aspect of Monster history. In Monsters, Inc., Mike playfully responds to an insult from Sulley with, “You’ve been jealous of my good looks since the fourth grade, pal.”

In Monsters University, however, the entire premise is built around the two monsters meeting for the first time in college. It was initially a problem for director and co-writer Dan Scanlon, who was determined to resolve the two storylines. “As much as we could, we wanted to be totally respectful of the continuity of the first film,” says Scanlon. “Our first inclination was to try to make it work, to do versions where they became friends in fourth grade. Basically, after trying it a lot, we felt like it was robbing the audience of the experience of really watching a relationship grow. And we realized we were going through all these hoops for this one line that doesn’t affect the story in a negative way. It was really [Monsters, Inc. director] Pete Docter and John Lasseter who said, ‘It’s not as important as you think. You’re not hurting the movie to ignore that line.’”

That Docter himself made the suggestion was crucial, since Monsters had been his baby and he remained involved as executive producer of the prequel. “I think Pete really pushed us to make big changes,” says Scanlon. “He was really good at standing back and going, ‘Oh, you want to make Sulley a jerk? Great.’ Nothing was precious. Pete was really a reminder of, ‘No, for characters to be interesting, they have to go through these changes.’ He really empowered us.”

But before the filmmakers decided that the fourth-grade zinger from Monsters, Inc. had to be ignored or simply written off as a flippant retort, playground scenes were written and artwork was commissioned. In the Monsters University Blu-ray, which comes out Oct. 29, one of the extras includes what could have been Mike and Sulley’s first childhood meeting. If you don’t want to wait until then, click below to see an exclusive video clip.

Fans of The Heat already saw the ridiculous scene play out in the film’s theatrical release.
