Warner Home Entertainment has recently released their special edition DVD of director Joe Dante’s “Innerspace” on Blu-ray. The 1987 film is a sci-fi comedy that afforded Martin Short and Meg Ryan early career leading roles in a tale of inspired lunacy. The premise of the script centers on a narcissistic former military test pilot Tuck Pendelton (Dennis Quaid) who volunteers for an unprecedented scientific experiment. Doctors have the technology to shrink him and inject him into the body of a rabbit. They also obviously have the ability to bring him back into the outside world where he can resume his normal activities at his normal size. The purpose of the experiment is to allow medical technicians to eventually inject operatives into human beings so that they can perform miracle surgeries. However, there are some bad guys who are looking to benefit from the amazing technology by selling it to the highest bidder. »

After the initial slate for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival was announced last month there were many observers, including this pundit, who wondered of the annual September event had once again lost the battle of premieres to its Fall festival cousins. While debuting Ridley Scott's "The Martian," Jean Marc Valle's "Demolition" and Michael Moore's "Where Do We Invade Next" is nothing to sneeze at the fact some of the most anticipated films of the year are heading to Venice and Telluride first has to be a bit disheartening. Especially when it's your 40th anniversary. Never fear fans of the Great White North, Toronto always seems to land some eyebrow raising last minute additions and this year is no different. Today Tiff announced that David Gordon Green's "Our Brand Is Crisis" with Sandra Bullock, Marc Abraham's "I Saw The Light" with Tom Hiddleston, Catherine Hardwicke's "Miss You Already »

From title changes to the addition of rubber demons, here's a selection of some rather strange movie alterations from cinema history...
The course of film production seldom runs smooth, and even the greatest films can suffer from all sorts of behind-the-scenes problems. For a very recent example, just look at Fantastic Four, a film with which suffered the kind of difficult production that will no doubt inspire books on the subject in the near future.
At any rate, the movies on this list are all examples of strange (and sometimes last-minute) changes, often imposed by producers or executives. In some unfortunate cases, the changes haven't been particularly beneficial, but one alteration turned out to be a pioneering moment in cinema history.
In every instance, the changes are unusual, surprising, or sometimes downright baffling ...

A seminal event happened to actor Lance Henriksen in his late teens that serves as the perfect metaphor for his life: Henriksen was working at a rural New Mexico gas station, and was taken in by the couple who owned it. They had a teenage daughter a couple years his junior. One day, figuring Lance and his daughter were getting a bit too chummy; the man drove Henriksen out to the middle of the desert. “All winter long, the frost has been pushing up these beautiful amethyst stones,” the man explained. “I’ll drop you off and you can collect them, then come back and sell them for a lot of money.” Henriksen stayed half the night, and then started to succumb to the desert’s freezing temperatures. “I dug a hole and buried myself up to my chest, with a fire in front of me. »

Kate Bosworth (Still Alice) plays the role of Roxanna Whitney, daughter of the CEO of one of the two warring auction houses—and a leading account executive.

Dennis Quaid stars in Crackle’s The Art Of More, about the dubious world of high-class art auction houses. And because Quaid is known for his movies and reporters who cover television can’t get over the fact they don’t cover the film industry, they asked him at TCA what prompted him to decide to do this series, and had he ever actually seen anything on Crackle. “I had seen the Seinfeld series, but I think what’s going on with Crackle and television is a revolution that is… »

What could be better than an inspirational, heart-warming film that’s all about a dog? Admittedly, the last attempt at that – this year’s Max from Warner Bros. – didn’t quite run away with the box office bone, but that’s not stopping DreamWorks from going ahead with an adaptation of W. Bruce Cameron’s best-seller A Dog’s Purpose, setting Lasse Hallstrom to direct a cast that includes Dennis Quaid and Britt Robertson.They’re part of an ensemble that also includes K.J. Apa, Juliet Rylance and Peggy Lipton in the story of a devoted pooch that is reincarnated various times, helps a number of different owners (think The Littlest Hobo, but across the plain of existence, not just the wilds of Canada), always with the driving aim of reuniting with his original human friend.This is one that, like Cameron’s 2010 tear-targeting tome, hops across several lives »

This week sees quite a few releases hitting shelves/stores, with everything from giant snakes fighting giant crocs to post-apocalyptic survival and hey, there’s even some killer bears and cannibals thrown in for good measure. We thought we’d shine the spotlight on a few of the standout genre (and a couple of non-genre) films that are available to pick up today, and while we’ve tackled some of them already (Inner Demons, Burying The Ex and Wyrmwood: Road Of The Dead), we’ve got the rundown on the rest for you fright fanatics!
A feature film based on the popular (and creepy) Marble Hornets series, Always Watching brings the series and the eerie Slender Man into your DVD players, with a found footage-like tale revolving around a trio of reporters that get caught up in something way over their heads. »

Just the other day a reader alerted me to a report at BoxOffice.com that Sony Classics had dated James Vanderbilt's Truth for an Oct. 16 release. It seemed odd in that a) the film hadn't been announced for either Venice or Toronto; b) we hadn't seen a trailer or promotional still; c) Sony Classics didn't have the film even listed on their press site; and d) one would expect all these things given the awards buzz surrounding star Cate Blanchett in the role of Mary Mapes. As it turns out, the report was accurate, the film will arrive in October and we also have the first look at Blanchett and Robert Redford in the upcoming film. Of course, there's a bit of decision-making to be had when it comes to Blanchett as she is also looked at as a top contender for Best Actress for her role in Carol. »

Is Cate Blanchett going for the triple crown this year? The two-time Academy Award winner already delighted audiences as the wicked, but semi-sympathetic step mother in Kenneth Branaugh’s live action “Cinderella” in March. In May she earned critical acclaim for her work as the title character in Todd Haynes’ “Carol.” The Weinstein Company is going to release that highly anticipated awards player in November. But, Blanchett fans can rejoice because they’ll have one more shot to enjoy the incredible Aussie’s talents before the end of 2015 and it promises to tell the “Truth.” Sony Pictures Classics announced today that "Truth," James Vanderbilt’s directorial debut, will open in New York and Los Angeles on Oct. 16. Based on a true story, the new drama chronicles the final days of legendary CBS News anchor Dan Rather (Robert Redford) as both he and the network deal with the ramifications of a »
