It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly 40 years since the release of Mel Brooks’ classic horror comedy, but Young Frankenstein was released on December 15, 1974 and Fox is preparing a new 40th anniversary edition Blu-ray.
The new release is set for September 9th and we have a (small) look at the official cover art below. The final list of bonus features have not yet been announced, but we expect that all of the bonus features from the previous release will carry over and have included that list below:
“Comedy icons Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman, Teri Garr and Madeline Kahn star in Mel Brooks’ brilliantly outrageous riff on Mary Shelley’s classic story of Frankenstein. After inheriting his grandfather’s castle in Transylvania, young Dr. Frankenstein (Wilder) follows in his ancestor’s freaky footsteps as he sets out to reanimate a dead body in Brooks’ “funniest, »

The excellent Eli Wallach, whose career spanned over sixty years, passed away this week at the age of 98, and I’m consumed with thoughts of transformation. Of course, he lived and worked for so long that life was a transformation in and of itself. The man from The Godfather Part III is the same man who hilariously shuffled about with Cloris Leachman in New York, I Love You. But he was also a man that melted into his roles. It’s an amazing, yet eternally undervalued talent. We gush for the names who always, and will forever look like themselves – the Robert Redfords and George Clooneys — but the real magic comes from the character actors whose roles trump image, those who disappear, those who leave little to no taste of the real person behind the performance. Some need full masks and CGI to transform, but others need just a hint of makeup or sometimes (shockingly) nothing at »

Now what would the medical profession be like without the dependable skills of nursing in cinema? Sure, the doctors get their lion’s share of representation in the movies but what about the nurses that serve them? What is so interesting about the portrayal of nurses in film is that they can be characterized beyond the compassionate medical maidens that the public associates them with on a whim. Motion pictures allow for big screen nurses to show some complexity beyond loving bedside manners and juggling bedpans. Cinematic nurses can be caring, comical, crazed, confused or corrupt.
Whatever the complication or consideration of these celluloid servers of health care rest assure that they are a glorified bunch in their devotion to the medical field. Whether flawed or favorable we will take a look at some of the top-notch nurses in film as cited in The Healthy Helpers: The Top 10 Movie Nurses. »

The film sees businessman Jimmy (Kevin Hart, Ride Along) provide a unique service: providing best man services for the most socially challenged gentleman who may not have any people close to them to be there for them on the big day. One such gent, Doug (Josh Gad, Wish I Was Here) is in desperate need of Jimmy’s service before he walks down the aisle with his bride-to-be (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, The Big Bang Theory). Cue all manner of family foibles and pratfalls.
Co-starring Ken Howard (30 Rock), Cloris Leachman (Spanglish), Jenifer Lewis (Cast Away), Mimi Rogers (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery) and Olivia Thirlby (Dredd), the comedy hits the Us on January 16th, 2015, with a UK release set for March 20th, 2015.

Few comedians currently have the sway of Kevin Hart, who has recently delivered a string of huge hits like Think Like a Man, Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain, Ride Along and About Last Night. And with Think Like A Man Too actually outpacing both its predecessor and surprise smash Ride Along in pre-sales going into the weekend, it’s a safe bet that Hart isn’t giving up his newly claimed throne as king of comedy quite yet. Now, we’ve got our first look at another Hart vehicle - The Wedding Ringer, in which he stars with Josh Gad.
The first trailer, though predictable, features some pretty funny jokes – “It looks like the cast of Goonies grew up and became rapists,” says Gad’s character of a group of bums that Hart’s best-man-for-hire wheels out as potential groomsmen. It looks like Hart has another hit on his hands, »

This weekend Kevin Hart stars in "Think Like A Man Too," a wedding-themed studio comedy. But that doesn't mean that the star, whose shrill, high-pitched scream is like a soothing lullaby to me, is done with wedding-themed studio comedies. This January he'll star in "The Wedding Ringer" as a best man-for-hire, who works with Josh Gad in assembling a crack team of groomsmen for his upcoming wedding. (Gad, it turns out, is something of a loser.)
The movie has kind of a funny hook, and a few hilarious lines in the frantic trailer (when inspecting the team of groomsmen Hart has assembled, Gad remarks, "It looks like the cast of 'Goonies' grew up to become rapists"). It was co-written and directed by Jeremy Garelick, who wrote the Vince Vaughn/Jennifer Aniston movie "The Break-Up" and has a hand in the upcoming "Police Academy" reboot.
"The Wedding Ringer" (that title!), is out on January 16th, »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week
"True Detective: The Complete First Season"
What's It About? This creepy HBO series stars Woody Harrelson and
Matthew McConaughey as troubled detectives on the hunt for a killer in 1995, and as the possible subjects of an investigation in the present day. The crazy conspiracies and weird worldviews presented by writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto and the masterful direction by Cary Fukunaga make this a series to obsess over. Time overlaps as our antagonists and their associates are interviewed in the
Why We're In: The Internet exploded with theories about "True Detective," and although they didn't necessarily prove to be fruitful, there's still plenty to examine and re-examine in each episode. Plus, there are audio commentaries, deleted scenes, interviews, and other behind-the-scenes goodies.

Paramount Pictures' Friday the 13th was set to get an all-new reboot on March 13, 2015, but is now moving to the year's other only option, November 13. There wasn't a reason given for the 8-month delay, but the horror thriller will be replaced with the studio's other in-production horror project Scouts Vs. Zombies.
V/H/S director David Bruckner is taking on this second Friday the 13th reboot, with Platinum Dunes' Bradley Fuller and Andrew Form producing alongside Michael Bay (the original team behind the 2009 remake). The movie will be shot found-footage style, but its still not known if iconic slasher Jason Voorhees will be back, as the producers have teased bringing in a new killer.
Paramount announced that they are delaying the release of the next installment of Friday the 13th, but another horror movie will be taking its place. Originally scheduled for release on March 13th, 2015, Friday the 13th will now be released on November 13th, 2015. Paramount must be happy with what they’ve seen of Scouts vs. Zombies, because it’s taking the March 13th release slot.
Directed by Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones), Scouts vs. Zombies stars Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan, Sarah Dumont, David Koechner, Cloris Leachman, Halston Sage, and Patrick Schwarzenegger. The story follows “three scouts who, on the eve of their last camp out, discover the true meaning of friendship when they attempt to save their town from a zombie outbreak.”
