We also hear from director Michael Bay and star Dwayne Johnson as they reveal their experiences with real life Miami police officers on the set. Take a look at this video you can't see anywhere else, then check out the special features details below.
Hailed as "Goodfellas on steroids" (Kyle Smith, New York Post), director Michael Bay's "hilarious, smart, clever and fresh" (Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly) dark comedy Pain & Gain arrives December 3, 2013 in a Special Collector's Edition Blu-ray bulked up with brand new bonus material from Paramount Home Media Distribution. »
Michael Bay’s break between Transformers movies proved to be a surprise success both critically and financially. Pain & Gain, starring Dwayne Johnson and Mark Wahlberg, followed a trio of hapless workout fanatics who become involved in a kidnapping. The film made great use of its star power and also has the balls to contain a bunch of reprehensible characters. Some great performances and a wonderful visual style from Bay made this a film to remember among all the big budget blockbusters this year, and you can own it on Digital Download from 17th December or on DVD and Blu-ray from 23rd December. Check out the press release below:

Voiceover coach Lake Bell gets her chance behind the mic in In a World…
The talented Ms. Bell stars as Carol (Bell), an underachieving voice coach living in the shadow of her egotistical father Sam (Fred Melamed, A Serious Man), the undisputed king of the voice-over industry. When Sam kicks her out, Carol lands her first voice-over job with the help of charming sound engineer Louis (Demetri Martin, Taking Woodstock). As romantic sparks begin to fly, Carol finds herself facing a momentous decision when continued job offers put her in head to head competition with her dad, as well as his arrogant protégé (Ken Marino, Wanderlust).
"Community" Season 5 has released its first photos, and things look to be just as crazy as usual at Greendale Community College. Add in guest stars Jonathan Banks and Rob Corddry, along with the return of Jeff Winger, and all of the insanity is back where it should be in "Repilot" and "Introduction to Teaching."
If you recall from the end of Season 4, Jeff (Joel McHale) actually managed to graduate from Greendale and was well on his way to returning to life as a lawyer. Unfortunately, the photos suggest that not all is well in the legal world.
Back at Greendale, however, the prodigal son can expect a warm welcome -- from the Dean anyway.
Jeff's former study group may not be so thrilled.
How exactly does Jeff Winger re-integrate into the life of a community college? »
The long-delayed fifth season of Community is just streets ahead under two months away (bowing Jan. 2 at 8/7c), and as such NBC has treated fans to a little piece of Greendale heaven with 20 (!) photos from the first two episodes.
Peruse the scoopy shots below to learn oh-so-much about the cult comedy’s upcoming run, including the fact that lawyer Jeff is once again involved with his skeevy colleague (played by Rob Corddry), Dean Pelton is still as stylish as ever (hellooo, pretty silk robe) and Jonathan Banks is bringing some »

There’s been a lot of jiggling round of release dates again today following yesterdays news on Fifty Shades Of Grey and Independence Day 2. We can now confirm Jake Kasdan’s adult comedy Sex Tape and Scott Derrickson’s supernatural thriller Beware The Night have both been moved.
Both projects come from Sony, with the R-rated comedy now taking on Marvel comic adaptation Guardians Of The Galaxy and James Brown biopic Get On Up, all released on August 1 2014. Sex Tape, starring Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz, follows a couple who unfortunately misplace their kinky um… sex tape (terribly careless). Jack Black, Rob Corddry and Rob Lowe co-star.
Also, the Paranormal horror Beware The Night gains a prime summer release date, after being moved from January. Scott Derrickson’s new fright feature about cops, priests and demons stars Eric Bana, Oliva Munn, Sean Harris, Edgar Ramirez and is out July 2 2014.

I thought John Oliver did a swell job filling in for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show this summer while Stewart was busy shooting his feature directorial debut, and it appears that I wasn’t alone. It was announced today that Oliver will be leaving his post at The Daily Show to host a “topical weekly comedy series” at HBO, with a 2014 launch targeted. The program will air on Sunday nights so it won’t exactly be direct competition for The Daily Show. For his part, Oliver had this to say about the move: “I’m incredibly excited to be joining HBO, especially as I presume this means I get free HBO now. I want to thank Comedy Central, and everyone at The Daily Show for the best seven and a half years of my life. But most of all, I’d like to thank Jon Stewart. He taught me everything I know. »

Has “The Daily Show” supplanted “Saturday Night Live” as a launching pad for modern comedy talent? It’s a judgment call, but in light of the latest budding star to break out of the former, it’s a barroom debate well worth having.
Word that John Oliver has scored his own topical comedy show at HBO — a development that seemed inevitable, somewhere, in the wake of his successful fill-in stint for Jon Stewart — follows Stephen Colbert’s spinoff; Steve Carell’s stand-alone stardom, first on “The Office” and then in features; and Ed Helms’ similar career arc. Others, including Rob Corddry and Rob Riggle, have also been in pretty constant demand, with plenty of “Children’s Hospital” fans out there, even if Corddry’s Fox show — the unfortunately named “The Winner” — fizzled.

When a major project like Universal's Fifty Shades of Grey shifts its release date, that usually starts a ripple effect with other studios making changes to their slate. Sony Pictures has moved Sex Tape up from July 18, 2014 to the E.L. James adaptation's former release slot on August 1, 2014. The comedy, which stars Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a couple trying to locate their missing sex tape, will now go up against the James Brown biopic Get on Up and Marvel's Phase Two sequel Guardians of the Galaxy.
Sony has also moved up Beware the Night from its January 16, 2015 release to July 2, 2014, where it faces the Warner Bros. comedy Tammy, starring Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon. Beware the Night, which stars Eric Bana, Olivia Munn and Joel McHale, follows a New York detective who investigates supernatural cases.
Finally, the studio has moved The Kitchen Sink from October 25, 2014 to January 9, 2015. The thriller »
Community is showing more love for Arrested Development: In addition to featuring a cameo by series creator Mitch Hurwitz in an episode, the NBC comedy has now signed up David Cross for a guest spot. (Vulture first reported the news.)
The episode with Cross, which will likely air in late winter or early spring, will serve as a sequel to season 2′s “Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.” The Arrested star is playing the sour estranged son of Professor Hickey (Jonathan Banks) who joins the study group for “the second most important game of Dungeons & Dragons ever.”

NBC has ordered four more scripts of Sean Saves the World. That indicates the network may end up ordering more episodes. I don’t know if I’m cheering for that to happen or not.
Alexis Denisof has joined the MTV drama pilot Finding Carter, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series focuses on a teen girl who learns she was abducted as a child and suddenly finds herself adjusting to live with the family she never knew.

In my other life, I teach 9th grade and the theme for the year is Coming of Age. It has become a major inspiration for movies, television, songs, and tons of books for the last century or two. As a result, it takes a lot to gain attention and have something fresh to say. The Way Way Back odes that by examining three different stages of coming of age, each a type you’ve seen before, but melded nicely into a satisfying blend.
The movie, out now from 20th Century Home Entertainment, tells the story of Duncan (Liam James), who is forced to accompany his divorced Mom (Toni Collette) on a summer away with her boyfriend, the quietly cruel and controlling Trent (Steve Carell), and his daughter Steph (Zoe Levin). He’d rather be with dad, who is busy settling into a San Diego life with his new girlfriend. Instead, »
