Movie Casting and More

I’ve never been one to go to a movie solely based on casting because, let’s face it, actors sometimes aren’t the best judge of script or director material.  The exceptions these days might be, for me, Leo DiCaprio, Nicholson or Redford or Clint or Woody Allen or, if he should ever work again, Warren Beatty.  People like that.  It’s sad, but so many great stars have lost goodwill with their audiences – remember when you looked forward to a Robert De Niro movie?  An Al Pacino move?  Those actors have to do what they have to do in order to pay their bills, but De Niro’s latest movie The Killing Season, also starring another dud as of late, John Travolta, went straight to DVD.  [Read on here…]

Okay… we’ve got some good announcement news for you guys this morning…

First up, Warner Home Video has set NBC’s Revolution for Blu-ray and DVD release on 9/10.  Revolution: The Complete First Season (SRP $69.97 and $59.98) will feature all 20 episodes and over 90 minutes of bonus content.  Both formats will include 2 featurettes (An In-depth Look at the Revolution Pilot and Creating a Revolution), deleted scenes, the NBC.com “webisodes” and a gag reel.  To this, the Blu-ray will exclusively add video of the Revolution cast and creative team at the 2013 Paley Festival, as well as UltraViolet digital copy versions of all 20 episodes.

Meanwhile, Universal has set The Place Beyond the Pines for Blu-ray Combo and DVD release on 8/6.  The film stars Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Ray Liotta.  Extras on both versions will include deleted and extended scenes, as well as audio commentary with director and co-writer Derek Cianfrance.
