Arrow Bonus Clip Takes A Look At Green Screen Magic

Exclusive The Guilt Trip Blu-ray Bonus Clip Takes A Look At Green Screen Magic

Watch Pain And Gain Online Walken and Arkin have had a pretty big year—especially Arkin, who performed well in this year’s Academy Award Best Picture winner, Argo, even getting to state the big “Argo **** yourself” line. Add in Pacino and you have the formula for a pretty decent—and pretty weird—buddy comedy. Additionally, The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies and a slew of other supporting characters also pop up in the film. If this is a flick that you are interested in seeing but don’t care about packaging or any other bells and whistles, Lionsgate Home Entertainment is bringing the film onto Video On Demand early. Stand Up Guys will hit VOD on May 7. The VOD release might be a good way to decide whether or not the film is worth owning in hard copy, as both the Blu-ray and DVD sets will run on the expensive end. Blu-ray copies will run for $39.99 and DVD copies will run somewhat more cheaply, at $27.98. You can check out the trailer or the full list of bonus features, below. There is no script for Star Wars Episode VII. There is no cast in place.

Watch Evil Dead Online No sets have been built, no costumes have been designed, no locations have been scouted. And yet, because this is the new beginning of Star Wars, and because the Internet is basically fueled by Star Wars fandom, we've got some fan-made posters for Episode VII anyway. Compiled over at Reddit, the posters take it upon themselves to suggest a story for the upcoming film, which will be directed by J.J. Abrams and written by Toy Story 3's Michael Arndt. Some of the posters, like the one above, are vague enough to suggest just about any story. Others, like this one below, are similarly vague, but are a very deliberate riff off the very intriguing posters for Abrams' own upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness:

Watch Iron Man 3 Online You can click over to see posters that suggest a female Jedi as the hero of the new series, maybe even one of Han and Leia's kids, and another with the tagline "The Evil Never Ends. Just Evolves," which suggests a way to hang on to the legacy of Darth Vader even though the character (probably) won't be part of the new series. And it ends with the poster we can't help but include below, the mashup visualization of the amazing storyline that Patton Oswalt laid out in an instantly legendary Parks & Recreation monologue. Hopefully now that "the female part's a little underwritten" has become part of the joke, Abrams and Arndt will work overtime to make sure that doesn't happen for the real movie.

Watch Spring Breakers Online How, exactly, does Steven Spielberg follow up a critically acclaimed historical Oscar winner like Lincoln? Easy. He makes Obama, a biopic of a lame-duck president that can hit theaters before the Commander In Chief even leaves office. And who does he get to play Pres. Obama? Even easier. Spielberg leans on Daniel Day-Lewis, in this amusing sketch that was shared via The Guardian. If you’ve watched the clip, then you know that it really isn’t Oscar winner Day-Lewis in the role, but Obama playing himself for the benefit of a spoof that aired during the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which was held at the Washington Hilton Hotel over the weekend. It’s refreshing to see the President – like so many leaders before him – lean on self-deprecating humor to poke fun at his accent, his physical appearance and his “motivations” while playing Day-Lewis playing Obama. At least, we know for sure that this isn’t Day-Lewis, right? Because the dude is just that good.

Watch Olympus Has Fallen Online Well this second and final trailer for Fast & Furious 6certainly gets its payoff from the CinemaCon footage Eric got to see a couple of weeks ago. Lots of great action scenes take place with all amounts of hell breaking loose in the middle of a busy highway, and the end of this trailer puts this large-scale sequence front and center. Justin Lin is in full “Michael Bay in his Bad Boys days” mode. The rest of the returning characters –including Tej (Ludacris), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and Han (Sung Kang) – get more time in this trailer as well, spouting off lines and looking shocked to see the ridiculous amount of high-pressure situations surrounding them. I’m not at all what you would call a fan of this series of films, but that's just out of disinterest, not total dislike. Hopping onto a bandwagon for the sixth film probably doesn’t win me any cool points, but this looks like a worthy trip to the theater. And you can make that trip when Fast & Furious 6 gets its release on May 24.

WATCH Beautiful Creatures ONLINE Like clockwork, the Obama haters lashed out in comments sections saying the President shouldn’t be wasting time with jokes during times of national crisis. The same argument were made the years that George W. Bush took part in the annual Correspondents’ dinner, and when Bill Clinton did it the years prior to that. There’s no getting around half the populace hating you when you are in office. The best you can do is try to have a sense of humor about your predicament.

Watch G I Joe Retaliation Online As for Spielberg, we really don’t know what his post-Lincoln project will be. He’s occupied at the moment preparing for Cannes, where he’ll lead the Grand Jury. But he dropped his planned Moses movie, and put Robopocalypse on the back burner. Obama won’t be next, but what WOULD you like Spielberg to tackle? In 1994, Neil Jordan gave movie vampires a sexy makeover with his brooding adaptation of Anne Rice's Interview with a Vampire. Nineteen years later, he's taken on another adaptation of a vampire drama, this one based on the play Byzantium by Moira Buffini. Unfortunately, despite offering plenty of blood and sexual content, his latest vampire tale lacks bite and sex appeal.

Watch Jack The Giant Slayer Online Saoirse Ronan stars as the tormented Eleanor Webb, an eternal 16-year-old who has lived with her mother Clara (Gemma Arterton) for over 200 years. They scrape by with the money the latter earns through sex work. But don't expect the frantic frenzy of high-speed sex seen on True Blood. Despite implied heightened senses, there's little supernatural about these two, beyond their ability to live forever, take a beating, and grow their thumbnails to be the perfect piercing tool for severing a victim's veins. These vampires don't even have fangs.

Watch G I Joe 2 Online Having stripped away so many of the standard vampire tropes, Byzantium feels lacking, missing out on a long-established and engaging mythos. Buffini does attempt to build one of her own, which involves a sexist and classist brotherhood of vampires that sees these women as abominations. It's an interesting backstory, but one unfortunately drawn out through a series of staggered flashbacks. These clunky leaps from past to present make the film feel like an eternity, and sadly the past's plot is far more interesting than the present. The former centers on the fiery Clara and features rape, revenge, rebirth, and redemption, while the latter is led by a gratingly angst-ridden and painfully passive teen who silently hates her mother and endlessly wallows in resentment.

While Ronan's gorgeous blue eyes try to bring some life to the role of Eleanor, she's such a passive character that it's a chore to follow her as she mopes around, killing those close to death and pining for a mortal boy with a very old-school look (Caleb Landry Jones). It's a shame that so much of the story centers on her when Clara is so active and Arterton so vibrant. But even with solid supporting turns from Jonny Lee Miller, Daniel Mays, Maria Doyle Kennedy (Downton Abbey), and Tom Hollander (Hanna), Byzantium is meandering and lifeless, much like its maudlin protagonist. It's a shame. I was really looking forward to this one. How hard is it to actually get a damn Justice League of America movie off of the ground? These guys made a pretty decent JLA spoof for YouTube using only LEGO figures … and it’s a lot better than whatever it is Warner Bros. has prepped to date – which, if you’re keeping score at home is Zilch, Zero, Nada, and Nothing.
