EXCLUSIVE: 'The Bourne Legacy' coming to DVD & Blu-ray on...

There was never just one Bourne DVD.

Universal will announce today that The Bourne Legacy is coming to DVD, Blu-ray Combo Pack, On Demand, and digital download December 11, 2012. The thriller follows agent Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner) as he fights to survive an epic, twisty game of cat-and-mouse — following in the footsteps of his predecessor, Jason Bourne. Edward Norton and Rachel Weisz also star. Special features include a variety of making-of featurettes, a set of deleted scenes, and commentary from director/co-writer Tony Gilroy.

Prepare yourself for the mission ahead with this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip, in which Weisz reveals that she had never ridden a motorcycle before hopping behind Renner to film a memorable high-speed scene: “The good thing about it was, I was just absolutely terrified,” the Oscar winner recalls. “And so was my character — so I didn’t have to act.”

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

'You wanna see something really scary?': How anthology movies became horror's hot new trend

New horror movie anthology The Theatre Bizarre caused something of a ruckus when it screened at a film festival in Oldenburg, Germany, last September. The specific source of said ruckus? A segment called “Vision Stains” in which a young woman uses a hypodermic needle to transfer fluid from the eyeballs of her murder victims to her own ocular apparatus so she can “see” their memories.

“It was the first festival we played that wasn’t a genre festival,” says David Gregory, who produced the film and directed one of the segments, along with Richard Stanley (Hardware), Douglas Buck, and the “Vision Stains” -making Karim Hussein, amongst others. “Doug went to the bathroom and some dude came in, fell, and hit his head on the urinal. Doug ran out to tell everybody that someone was sick. Just as he did, another guy collapsed in the doorway of the auditorium. Both of them were fine but the combination of eyeball and needle just made the gentlemen pass out. They were there with their dates and the girls were like, ‘Whatever. P—ies.’” READ FULL STORY

'Warrior': Nick Nolte on his winning sports drama and his hope for a '48 Hrs.' reunion at the Oscars

In Warrior, Nick Nolte plays a recovering alcoholic whose destructive addiction cost him his family, including his two sons, played by Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton. In his raging days, Paddy Conlon pushed his boys to be champions — one more than the other, perhaps — and when they enter the world of Mixed Martial Arts fighting, Nolte’s guilt-ridden pop seizes the opportunity to right past wrongs and salvage some sense of family. Characterized by a solemn bearing that masks a volcanic temper, Paddy fits Nolte almost too close for comfort, and it might be the best performance of his career. Last week, the SAG recognized him with a Best Supporting Actor nomination.

Warrior, which arrives on video tomorrow, is the beginning of a career renaissance for the 70-year-old Nolte, who previously earned Academy Awards nominations for The Prince of Tides (1991) and Affliction (1997). He’ll pop up in next year’s star-studded L.A. noir, Gangster Squad, opposite Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, and Josh Brolin. And he plays the mysterious old horse trainer in HBO’s Luck, David Milch’s new drama about life at the racetrack.

Famously garrulous and philosophical, Nolte talked to EW about his latest good fortune and reflected on a career that has had more than its share of ups and downs.  READ FULL STORY

Jesse Eisenberg isn't the star of 'Camp Hell,' and is suing to prove it

Last week, The Social Network and Zombieland star Jesse Eisenberg filed a lawsuit against Lionsgate and Grindstone Entertainment, distributors of the low-budget horror film Camp Hell, for falsely advertising that he’s the film’s leading man to capitalize on his newfound fame and popularity. Per the suit, Eisenberg agreed to shoot a small cameo for longtime friends producing the picture in 2007, but only worked one day, for a paycheck of roughly $3,000 and less than five minutes of screen time. “Eisenberg is bringing this lawsuit in order to warn his fans and the public that, contrary to the manner in which Defendants are advertising the film, Eisenberg is not the star of and does not appear in a prominent role in Camp Hell, but instead has a cameo role in Camp Hell,” the suit says. It then, of course, points out the large photo of Eisenberg gracing the DVD jacket and the way his name appears above the title. I am not a judge, but as someone who’s bought DVDs for years, I would assume that Eisenberg was the leading man (and filmed this well before he got his Oscar nomination). READ FULL STORY

Sneak peek at Blu-ray extras from Sam Raimi's 'Evil Dead II' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Sam Raimi’s gooey, 1987 cult horror/comedy hybrid, Evil Dead II, is the movie that keeps giving. You could also argue that with the slew of special edition DVDs of the film already on the market, it’s the movie that keeps taking, too. After all, I lost track a long time ago of how many hundreds of dollars I’ve forked over buying all these damn things. Either way, the new 25th Anniversary Blu-ray (which comes out tomorrow, Nov. 15!)  is worth your time and money if you’re a fan of giddy gore, the Book of the Dead, and Bruce Campbell’s impossibly chinned alterego, Ash.

A clip from the new 'Return of the Living Dead' documentary, 'More Brains!' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Very few comedy-horror movies are quite as much fun as director Dan O’Bannon’s demented, 1985 zombie opus, Return of the Living Dead. And no others feature the sight of scream queen Linnea Quigley cavorting around on a tombstone wearing nothing but leggings, a punk-rock wig, and some serious choreographic attitude.

In fact, as the new documentary More Brains!: A Return to the Living Dead details, Ms. Quigley was also sporting a specially made prostheses-cum-merkin on the orders of a concerned producer. Alas, the now-available-on-DVD doc does not reveal whether this item is safely housed at the Smithsonian. But Return of the Living Dead fans will have all their other questions answered in this comprehensive cinematic autopsy, which features on-camera contributions from all of the production’s surviving principals and, amongst its bonus extras, the last-ever interview with O’Bannon, who died in 2009.

You can check out a clip from the documentary and the trailer for Return of the Living Dead itself, below. READ FULL STORY

Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton mixed martial arts movie, 'Warrior', heads to DVD and Blu-ray -- EXCLUSIVE NEW TRAILER

The rousing, Rocky-esque mixed martial arts drama, Warrior, will be available on DVD and Blu-ray Combo Pack on Dec. 20, loaded with extras that EW can reveal exclusively. The PG-13-rated fight flick about a pair of blue-collar brothers (Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton) who square off in the ring, opened in theaters in September. The Blu-ray includes a commentary from director Gavin O’Connor (Miracle), writer Anthony Tambakis, and Edgerton, as well as several making-of documentaries, a “cheap shots” gag reel, deleted scenes, and another commentary with costar Nick Nolte. Check out the extras and the exclusive new trailer below… READ FULL STORY

Larry the Cable Guy on Mater backlash: 'As long as John Lasseter's laughing and smiling and thinking it's funny, I'm good' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

By any criteria, Cars 2 was a fabulously successful sequel, but that didn’t stop nitpickers from downgrading the Pixar film for its decision to build a spy thriller around Mater, the dimwitted tow-truck voiced by comedian Larry the Cable Guy (née Daniel Whitney). Lightning McQueen’s loyal sidekick’s shift into leading-truck status fueled a $551 million global blockbuster, and LCG isn’t about to apologize for that. “As long as I’m doing the voice and John Lasseter’s laughing and smiling and thinking it’s funny, I’m good,” says Larry. With Cars 2 out on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, Nov. 1, the Blue Collar comedian and host of the History Channel’s Only in America talks to EW about how Mater became a star and his reaction to the film’s critical reception. Then, in an exclusive clip from the Cars 2 Five-Disc Combo pack, the filmmakers explain why Mater was the perfect character to keep us laughing in the world of espionage.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Going back to the first film, did it feel like Mater was originally written with your voice in mind?
LARRY THE CABLE GUY:
John Lasseter heard me on the Blue Collar CD and he said, “That’s the voice. That’s the voice of Mater.” I mean, if anyone would know Mater’s voice, it’s John, because he’s the guy who thought him up. But I remember when I was doing some shows in San Francisco, all the Pixar animators came out to watch me and we had a great time after, so I think they pretty much [made the character] from that. I went in for a six-hour voice session, but I think I only had like 25 lines. But they really liked what I had done with the character so they ended up rewriting a bunch of the movie. I just kept going back, seven or eight times, until we finally got it. And then we were at a party afterwards and John went up and said what a good job I did with Mater. It was really cool. I’m very thankful. READ FULL STORY
