New on DVD and Blu-ray

"Get Hard"

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart team up in this comedy about a rich hedge-fund manager who is sentenced to San Quentin; desperate for tips on how to survive prison, he looks for help from a black businessman, assuming he'll know what to do. That's not racist at all! As it turns out, Hart's businessman has never even had a parking ticket, so it's the blind leading the blind. The Blu-ray has tons of extras, including an unrated cut of the film, a gag reel, deleted scenes, and these featurettes: "Just Put Your Lips Together and Blow," "Get Hard Line-o-Ramas," "The Kevin Hart Workout," "Face Off with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart," "-Ferrell Fighting," "A Date with John Mayer, »

The Conversation: Drew Morton and Landon Palmer Discuss ‘Star 80′

20 June 2015 8:59 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Conversation is a feature at Sound on Sight bringing together Drew Morton and Landon Palmer in a passionate debate about cinema new and old. For their sixth piece, they discuss Bob Fosse’s film Star 80 (1983).

Drew’S Take:

To say that Bob Fosse’s Star 80 (1983) has a bad reputation is a bit of an understatement. Even after the critical and commercial success of his previous hit All That Jazz (1979), 20th Century Fox executives turned their backs on Fosse. Less than three years after the rape and murder of Playboy Playmate Dorothy Stratten (to say nothing of the necrophilia), a film dramatization seemed to be in poor taste. To magnify the discomfort, Fosse not only left the filming of the grim finale for last – keeping his two lead actors in the dark – but decided to film in the actual house and bedroom the crimes occurred in. The grim »

15 June 2015 8:16 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ovation TV has partnered with the Actors Hall of Fame Foundation to air the Actors Hall of Fame induction ceremony — marking the first time the event will be televised.

“This will not be a ‘traditional award show.’ There are enough of those already!” said Actors Hall of Fame president Rusty Citron, who made the announcement with Liz Janneman, Ovation’s exec VP of network strategy. “We wanted to partner with Ovation TV because, as the foremost arts broadcast network, they understand that an actor who has achieved this level of success deserves the respect and honor worthy of their accomplishments.”

The special, which will air in October, will honor 15 as-yet-to-be-announced actors for their career achievement in film, TV and theater. Past recipients have included Gene Hackman, Meryl Streep, William H. Macy, Morgan Freeman, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Kirk Douglas, Angela Lansbury, Julie Andrews, Anthony Hopkins, Robert DeNiro, James Earl Jones and Hal Holbrook. »

Felicity Huffman On First Emmy Win For ‘Desperate Housewives’

11 June 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Felicity Huffman has officially scored a hat trick at ABC. From “Sports Night” to “Desperate Housewives” to her recent turn on limited series “American Crime,” Huffman has had critics and viewers raving in wildly diverse roles. She picked up an Emmy in 2005 for the first season of “Housewives,” and one of the joys of that night was sharing it with her husband — and fellow Emmy winner — William H. Macy.

What do you remember about day you won?

What was exciting was Bill and I got a hotel room — my kids were 2 and 3 at the time — which meant we could sleep in a little bit. I didn’t know how to get a dress, no one really wanted to dress me. Kevin Hall came out and said, “I’ll give you a dress” and very kindly the costumer from “Desperate Housewives” came. I liked my dress but I was sitting there in hair and makeup thinking, »

Jurassic Park III Revisited: “This Is How You Make Dinosaurs?”

10 June 2015 7:12 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I don’t know if anyone involved in Jurassic Park III had an idea about why the movie needed to be made other than Universal Pictures keeping the IP alive. Steven Spielberg had moved on, and if he couldn’t find life in a sequel, who was going to be able to attempt it just four years later? Going with Spielberg’s former VFX art director Joe Johnston wasn’t a terrible bet, but it was also a journeyman choice. Johnston was proficient enough to get the job done, but lacked the vision to see anything through beyond “more dinosaurs.” This time, the movie spins the wheel and lands on a slightly more credible protagonist with Sam Neill returning to play Alan Grant, who is lured to Isla Sorna under the false pretenses of being a dinosaur guide to wealthy couple Paul (William H. Macy) and Amanda Kirby (Téa Leoni »

5 Things You Need to Know Before You See 'Jurassic World'

10 June 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

This Friday, "Jurassic World" is unleashed on an unsuspecting world, where it will gnash its teeth and swing its tail and generally make life miserable for puny humans foolhardy enough to mess with the laws of nature. (Hubris gets you every time.)

Some estimates have suggested that "Jurassic World" will be the box office hit of this summer (sorry, "Aloha"). That's right: 22 years after the original film debuted and decimated all box office records, this sequel could do pretty much the same thing.

But what do you really need to know about the movie before seeing it this Friday

1. It's a Direct Sequel to the Original 'Jurassic Park'...

For those keeping track at home, this is the fourth "Jurassic Park" film. The last film in the series was 2001's middling "Jurassic Park III," which saw original hero Alan Grant (Sam Neill) traveling back to a dinosaur-infested island to »

The Oscar ceremony was held on Sunday, Feb. 27. Wahlberg, decades ago known as underwear model Marky Mark, was an Oscar nominee as one of the producers of Best Picture contender The Fighter – which ultimately lost to odds-on favorite The King's Speech. Mark Wahlberg was the only major player in the David O. Russell-directed boxing drama who failed to be nominated for an Academy Award in the acting categories. Co-stars Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, and Christian Bale were all shortlisted; Leo and Bale ended up winning in their respective supporting categories.
