New on DVD and Blu-ray
Even if you snagged "La dolce vita" on Blu-ray when it was available via Kino Lorber, you'll still want to upgrade to this fancy Criterion edition. This new release received the 4K digital restoration treatment, and the extras include an interview with writer/director (and Ad for "La dolce vita") Lina Wertmüller, an audio interview with star Marcello Mastroianni, and more.
This is a kooky zombie love story about a guy named Zach (Dane DeHaan) whose girlfriend Beth (Aubrey Plaza) returns from the dead. In addition to the whole interpersonal love mishegoss of dating someone who's a rotting zombie, there's also a whole zombie apocalypse to deal with - can their relationship survive? Can they survive? »

The Digital Era: Real-time Films From 2000 To Today
40 years before, in 1960, lighter cameras enabled a cinéma vérité-flavored revolution in street realism. By 2000, new digital cameras suggested a whole new set of promises, including telling stories that would have been unimaginable within minimum budgets for features even ten years before. In 2000, film purists warned that digital still didn’t look as good as celluloid, but that didn’t stop at least three innovative filmmakers from boldly going where no filmmaker had gone before. Mike Figgis’ Timecode (2000) was the first star-supported (Salma Hayek, Stellan Skarsgard, Holly Hunter, among many others) single-shot project since Rope, underlining that earlier film’s timelessness. If Run Lola Run could do one story three times, then Timecode would do three or four stories one time: the movie is four separate ninety-minute shots shown all at the same time, each in one quadrant of the screen. Where do you look? »

After the critical and commercial success of both How to Train Your Dragon and this year's How to Train Your Dragon 2, which have earned over $1.1 billion worldwide combined, fans will get their next look at Hiccup and Toothless in How to Train Your Dragon 3, which is set for release on June 9, 2017. Given the success of this franchise, it may be surprising that, during a recent interview, director Dean DeBlois revealed that the upcoming sequel will actually close out the trilogy.
"I think I've talked [Jeffrey Katzenberg] down from that (laughs). There may be spinoffs to come, but my involvement and my dedication to completing a story that has a reason for being and a strong »
If you loved How to Train Your Dragon 2 as much as I did, you’ll be interested to see this deleted scene. The scene shows Hiccup taking on Eret after he and his gang are captured. It is also the first time Hiccup teaches a villain what it means to have earned the loyalty of a dragon, which (spoiler!) is sort of a big deal in the ultimate battle. Although it is very roughly animated (it’s in “story reel” format), it is fully voiced by Jay Baruchel (Hiccup), Kit Harrington (Eret), and America Ferrera (Astrid). The clip is introduced by DreamworksTV’s Dusan Brown, who is either 12 or 35. I can’t tell. He claims to be 12, but he is preternaturally poised, so it could be a lie.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 will be available for digital download on October 21 and hits shelves on Blu-ray and DVD »

I know, a story about a new Quentin Tarantino movie and the third film in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise doesn't exactly feel right, but both have to do with their respective film's release dates so I think it works. First off, The Weinstein Co. has issued a press release Tarantino's The Hateful Eight will begin shooting in January for a Fall 2015 release and along with that news the release announced it will receive the widest 70mm release in over 20 years". It will be curious to see if those roadshow plans also remain. The ensemble Western centers on bounty hunters returning human plunder to a town called Red Rock in exchange for hefty rewards when they run into a Southerner on the road. The three of them, along with their driver arrive at a haberdashery to take shelter from an oncoming blizzard. The proprietors are nowhere to be found, »

If you're a fan of the How to Train Your Dragon franchise (which you should be), then there's some sad news for you today. On the heels of a less that expected box office return for How to Train Your Dragon 2 (despite much critical success) Dreamworks have decided to delay How to Train Your Dragon 3 from 2016, into 2017. Come inside to check out the new release date.
Well, the good news is that your Summer 2016 list of films to see just got a little shorter, making it easier on your pocketbook. The sad news is that we have to wait longer to see How to Train Your Dragon 3. From the press release:
On the heels of the success of their latest epic adventure, Hiccup and Toothless have plans to soar across the big screen once again with the announcement of the third chapter in DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon »

DreamWorks Animation has pushed back the release of How to Train Your Dragon 3.
The film will now debut a year later than original scheduled on June 9, 2017.
Despite How To Train Your Dragon 2 passing the $600 million mark at the global box office this weekend and solidifying its place as the highest-grossing animated film of 2014, Dreamworks has announced that the third film in the franchise will arrive a year later than expected.
How To Train Your Dragon 3 was originally slated to open in theaters on June 17, 2016 but has been pushed almost a whole year to June 9, 2017. Dreamworks didn’t cite a reason for the change, though one just has to look at Httyd 3‘s competition that weekend to see why. Disney/Pixar’s Finding Dory is set to open on that June 17 date in 2016, which likely factored heavily into Dreamworks’ decision to move Hiccup and Toothless’ next adventure around.
Httyd 2‘s $600 million box office take is nothing to shake a stick at, but it’s far short of the $936 million that Finding Nemo pulled from audiences »

Dreamworks celebrated a successful Labor Day weekend by announcing that How To Train Your Dragon 2 had crossed the $600 million mark at the global box office, making it one of the highest-grossing films of the year and the top-earning animated film of 2014.
Unfortunately, that celebration was cut short as the studio also announced that the third film in the franchise, which was expected to hit theaters on June 17th, 2016 has been delayed a whole year to June 9th, 2017.
The studio was mum about its reasoning for the delay, though the fact that Httyd 3 was sharing a release date with Disney/Pixar’s Finding Dory surely played a part. The How To Train Your Dragon franchise may be one of the biggest tentpoles at Dreamworks’ disposal, but Httyd 2‘s $600 million box office take doesn’t quite hold a candle to Finding Nemo‘s $936 million, meaning that Toothless and Hiccup besting Dory »

Following today's news that Warner Bros. has given a June 17, 2016 release date to The Nice Guys, DreamWorks Animation has moved How to Train Your Dragon 3 from that date to June 9, 2017, while confirming voice cast members Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera and Cate Blanchett.

FX has given a series order to "Baskets," a new comedy from the creative all-star team of Zach Galifianakis, Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel. But don't get too invested in "Baskets," because its premiere is a mighty long way away. Seemingly the "Shakes the Clown" for the 21st Century, "Baskets" focuses on a Bakersfield, California resident named Chip Baskets (Galifianakis), who dreams of becoming a professional clown. When things go wrong at a prestigious French clowning academy, he's forced to make ends meet as a rodeo clown, while never giving up his true lofty aspirations. "Baskets" will begin production next year, but the 10-episode first season won't premiere until 2016. "Zach Galifianakis, Louis C.K. and Jonathan Krisel have created an absolutely brilliant show," blurbs Eric Schrier, half of FX's two-headed President of Original Programming team with Nick Grad. "To say Zach’s portrayal of the lead character Chip Baskets is hilarious »

Confession: I think Nicolas Cage is a great actor. And not just because of Oscar-quality performances like those in Adaptation and Leaving Las Vegas. No, the movie that introduced me to Cage’s gifts was National Treasure. And while Cage did return to the big screen for a sequel, the series deserves to become an even bigger franchise.
The National Treasure movies were made in the wake of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code, an immensely popular, thrilling, if not particularly well-written novel about conspiracy theories and mini-art history lessons. National Treasure is the American Da Vinci Code—and »
