If you’re looking for a romantic movie to watch over Valentine’s Day weekend, you can get seven of them in the recently released Nicholas Sparks Limited Edition DVD Collection, which, for the first time, unites Safe Haven, The Lucky One, Dear John, Nights in Rodanthe, A Walk to Remember, Message in a Bottle, and The Notebook. Sparks chatted with EW about some of their signature moments, the challenges of topping sex scenes, why the ending of Safe Haven really shouldn’t have shocked you, and what’s next.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The adaptations of your novels always include what I like to call “the wet kiss.” Do you have a favorite?
Nicholas Sparks: [Laughs] There are all sorts of versions of the wet kiss — under a shower, in the rain, in the ocean, in the river. We’re running out of them. I say this because I have two more films getting ready to film. No favorites, but I will say that it’s kind of a requirement to come up with one. It’s part of what you expect when you see the film. We work to get a new version of it in there. With every film, there are significant discussions about, “Well, we’ve gotta make our love scene better than X.” Then they reference basically every movie that has been made before that of mine. [Laughs] Oh yeah, we spend time talking about how to make it different, how to make it new, because it’s a goal. It’s a goal for the director to make it new. It’s a goal for the cast to make it new. They want to see if they can top it. They know they might not, but there’s always the fun in trying. You can top it in different ways, because some strike you as more passionate, but others might strike you as more sensual. Others might strike you as more real and everlasting. READ FULL STORY

Hell hath no fury like a you-know-who who has been you-know-what-ed in the new thriller Scorned, which is released on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday. The film stars AnnaLynne McCord (90210) as a woman who discovers her boyfriend (Billy Zane) has been cheating on her with dramatic and — judging by the movie’s trailer – dog-in-microwave-featuring consequences.
Below, Scorned director Mark Jones (Leprechaun, Rumpelstiltskin) talks about the film — and the time he got punk’d by George Peppard.

It has been very quiet on the A Nightmare on Elm Street front since the Jackie Earle Haley-starring reboot of Wes Craven’s original horror classic hit cinemas in 2010. But horror fans with both a desire to know more about the franchise and a Blu-ray player should definitely check out the exhaustive documentary Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy, which debuts on that format tomorrow. Directed by Daniel Farrands and Andrew Kasch and penned by Thommy Hutson (writer of the forthcoming horror movie Animal) the four-hour film finds Craven, Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp, and many many more reminiscing about the trials and tribulations involved in bringing Freddy Krueger to the screen over the years.
Nebraska tells the story of a father (Bruce Dern) who, after receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, believes he’s struck it rich and convinces his son (Will Forte) to join him on a road trip to accept his new fortune. Directed by Alexander Payne, the film received multiple Oscar nominations, including a Best Director nod for Payne, another for Best Picture, and acting nominations for star Bruce Dern and supporting actress June Squibb, who plays Dern’s wife in the film.
But don’t panic if you missed it in theaters. We have the exclusive release date for Nebraska on Blu-ray and DVD, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at how June Squibb landed her role as Kate Grant. Let’s just say she wasn’t Payne’s first choice, but he quickly changed his mind.
Learn more about Squibb’s journey to the film with the exclusive clip below:

In the documentary The Act of Killing, Indonesian death squad members are persuaded to recreate atrocities they committed during the ’60s as if they were acting in Hollywood movies. As compelling as it is disturbing the Drafthouse Films release is on the Oscars shortlist for best documentary feature and just this weekend shared the best non-fiction film trophy with At Berkeley at the National Society of Film Critics Awards.
This year was a great one for truly terrifying movies, from The Conjuring and the Insidious sequel to Mama and The Purge. But the most head-in-your-hands frightening may have been You’re Next, the twisted home-invasion flick that yielded a high body count with its clever execution of extreme executions. Part collaborative indie project, part horror homage, You’re Next is the story of a joyous family reunion that is interrupted by murderous intruders wearing animal masks. Per horror tradition, the family gets picked off one by one — Why? We’re not sure… yet. — but nothing about You’re Next is like anything you’ve seen before.
In the exclusive (slightly gory) video clip below, the cast discusses the pre-vis work that went into the movie’s most
brainheart-stopping scene. READ FULL STORY
