Yesterday, we learned that there will be a live action Nightwing film that will be directed by Chris McKay! So who is Chris McKay and why is this huge news? Outside of Robot Chicken, Morel Orel (funny if you remember the '80ish Sunday morning Christian show), and -- wait -- that is about it, right? So what has he done? Oh yeah. The Lego Batman Movie. He was able to combine all of the "negative & dark" elements of Batman and make him into a character that you originally love to hate, but finally are totally on-board with. Many are saying that The Lego Batman is the best Batman ever featured on the big screen, including Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

Though there were somewhat mixed reviews, audiences seemed to love the Star Wars franchise’s first spin-off film, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story certainly helped move momentum going into next December’s release of Star Wars VIII. Coinciding with recent news about the Han Solo film, the release of the home versions of the Felicity Jones vehicle has now hit.
The Blu-Ray release will hit stores on April 4th, loaded with bonus features, though there will apparently be some “by outlet” differences in the list of bonuses. Also, as is becoming the norm, those looking for it on Digital HD get a bit of a head start, with the film hitting
As you might expect, the release will be loaded with extras, including some that are really going to make fans happy. Especially interesting are deeper looks at K-2So, Baze & Chirrut, and The Empire itself.

Looks like yesterday’s rumor was on point after all; Disney and Lucasfilm have formally announced that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to debut on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere March 24th, before opening up to 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD, and On-Demand services on April 4th.
The announcement came hand-in-hand with a new trailer for the home video release (see above), which casts light on some of the many bonus features included. Conspicuous by their absence? Deleted scenes, particularly when you consider just how much footage was reportedly left on the cutting room floor during production on Gareth Edwards’ anthology flick. That’s not to say that the Mouse House won’t bring us Rogue One‘s deleted scenes further down the line, but at least with this initial release, it looks as though the special features will largely focus on character profiles, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and »

Today Disney and Lucasfilm made it official: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story from director Gareth Edwards and starring Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, Jiang Wen and Forest Whitaker will make its Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and DVD debut on April 4th, 2017.
You'll be able to watch Star Wars: Rogue One two weeks prior on March 24th when the first standalone Star Wars film is released exclusively on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere. All high definition versions will be presented in 7.1 DTS-hd Master Audio.
Star Wars: Rogue One was a beast at the box office this past holiday season, earning over one billion at the global box office and proving the Star Wars franchise could stand on its own two feet without the core Skywalker mythology involved.
Bonus features are notably missing any of the deleted and re-shot footage from the third act. »
Years before Pietro Bartolo became the star of an Oscar-nominated documentary, he nearly drowned at sea. Bartolo began his career as a fisherman, trawling the same Mediterranean waters between Italy and Libya where countless rickety boats carrying desperate immigrants sink beneath the waves. One day, the rough waters capsized his boat. He spent the night adrift and was rescued by a passing ship the next day.
“I was convinced I was going to die,” he said in a conversation through a translator during a recent visit to New York. “Finding a shipwrecked victim in the middle of the Mediterranean is like finding a needle in a haystack. I was lucky, but many of these people don’t have that same fortune.”

The first time I went to the Berlin Film Festival, the city was existentially cold, cottoned in fog, and grayer than “Wings of Desire.” And I loved it. I had just been laid off and my personal life was mired in one of those brutally unsolicited periods of self-reflection, so a jet-lagged week in the grim heart of Europe was just what the doctor ordered.
That was the year of titles like “Boyhood,” the frigid Chinese neo-noir “Black Coal, Thin Ice,” and an Estonian drama about a film critic who loses his newspaper job — and then his mind — after filing a two-word review of “The Tree of Life.” (“Fuck you.”) I bundled up and walked by the Reichstag, spent a few nights on the east side of town, and tried most of the brews at the House of 100 Beers, a flavorless, three-tiered tourist trap near the center of the festival »

The Berlinale has always had a reputation as a festival that takes its politics seriously, but this year the politics were bound to be a little more urgent than usual. This was, after all, the first A-list European festival to happen since the Trump inauguration. As competition jury member Diego Luna, the Mexican star of Rogue One, pointed out: “There’s no better place to send a message than Berlin” – a city that knows its fair share about the futility of walls.
The jury – headed by director Paul Verhoeven and including Maggie Gyllenhaal and artist Olafur Eliasson – may or may not choose the most political films in contention, but they will have noticed how many films seemed »

As the Berlinale draws to a close, the film festival’s chief Dieter Kosslick observes with satisfaction that the event, once again, served as both a showcase for outstanding movies and a soapbox for political views, including opposition to the policies of President Donald Trump. “It was a classic Berlinale,” he told Variety.
Referring to Trump, Kosslick said: “The guy has caused an international wake-up call, so we are all alert now to what is going on.” Kosslick welcomed the “pop-up demonstration” – a flash-mob – that took place next to a section of the Berlin Wall close to the European Film Market venue, the Martin-Gropius-Bau, in support of Mexican actor-director and Berlinale jury member Diego Luna, who had remarked during a press conference that he wanted to tear down walls.
Kosslick also mentioned other protests during the festival, such as the Romanian film professionals’ expression of their opposition to their government »
