Now that you have had a few days to come down from the season finale of Gotham, you may have started wondering when you can own the home video release. Thankfully, Fox and Warner Bros. opted to not wait very long at all to announce that the complete second season will arrive on Blu-Ray on August 16. One would also expect a DVD release on that very date, but it remains unclear whether or not it will contain all of the featurettes included on its mighty Blu-Ray counterpart.

Speaking of featurettes, a full rundown can be found in the official press release, along with a thorough synopsis and cast details. We also have the front cover art to share with you, which bears what may be the coolest piece of promo art circulated for this past season.

X-Men: Apocalypse review – smack bang into the 80s

22 May 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Oscar Isaac takes his turn as the bad guy in this latest likable instalment of the comic superhero saga

“The weak have taken the Earth…” In Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, Wolverine’s consciousness was teleported back from an apocalyptic future to a retro-1970s past to achieve a Terminator-style rewriting of the present. This messy sequel (technically still a prequel) goes back further to ancient Egypt, where a proto uber-mutant’s Temple of Doom-style-meets-Stargate regeneration is stalled, only to resume in 1983. With Raven/Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) hiding her true-blue colours in East Berlin and Erik/Magneto (Michael Fassbender) passing as a production-line worker in Poland, new recruits continue to gather at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. But when sunlight awakens Oscar Isaac’s En Sabah Nur (aka Apocalypse), it’s time for forces old and new to pull together once again. Suffering from the »

Cloris Leachman Turns 90 With Betty White Joke and the Best F--king Birthday Cake Ever

2 May 2016 9:14 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Oscar winner Cloris Leachman just turned 90 on April 30, and she can't f--king believe it either.

The actress has been working steadily in Hollywood since the mid-1950s, with a filmography so long it would take another 90 years to read it. She's known for her TV roles in "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and the spinoff "Phyllis," plus "The Beverly Hillbillies," "The Facts of Life," "Malcolm in the Middle," and "Raising Hope"; and film roles in "Young Frankenstein," "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," "Spanglish," "The Wedding Ringer," and "The Last Picture Show," where she picked up her Academy Award. Leachman was also the oldest contestant to compete on "Dancing With the Stars," at age 82 in DWTS Season 7.

"Crazy Cloris" was a hoot then, and she seems just as sassy now. Check out her birthday cake, which she showed off on Twitter after thanking fans for their kind wishes, and gently »

Tamzin Outhwaite webchat – as it happened

The former EastEnders star is back in the West End, and she came in to talk about reincarnating as a guitar, Hp sauce, training with the army and lots more

2.05pm BST

Well, that was fun. Thank you all so much for your questions. If you like to laugh, come to see How The Other Half Loves at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket - we're on until June 25. The episode of Inside No 9, series three, will be on this autumn on BBC2.

2.03pm BST

Antiquarian asks:

There used to be a publicity shot of you in Red Cap on the “media appearances” board in HQ Training Estates South East, where you filmed. They said it was the most stolen image, more so than 007. Any other unusual accolades like that?

I used to be seeded number three in trampolining in Redbridge. And in all-girls doubles, tennis, me and my partner were seeded number two. »

Criterion Reflections – The Producers (1968) – Ld #35

10 April 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

David’s Quick Take for the tl;dr Media Consumer:

A brash, vulgar, wildly energetic and shamelessly provocative comedy romp that launched Mel Brooks as a film director, Gene Wilder as a popular comic actor, and grossly expanded the latitude extended to comedians in cinema, establishing radically poor taste as an acceptable marketing strategy in mainstream entertainment. Though The Producers is fondly remembered, massively influential and boasts some truly unforgettable sequences of inspired lunacy, too much time is dedicated to histrionic leering, shouting and shrieking episodes that don’t deliver enough in terms of wit to earn my enthusiastic endorsement overall. The story line is pretty familiar – a rambunctious Broadway showman conspires with a neurotic accountant to bilk investors in an offensive production, only to see their plan foiled when the play becomes an unexpected hit. The premise is clever and offers a broad platform for unbridled zaniness. A lot »

Blu-ray Review Frankenstein 2015

31 March 2016 6:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

When I was just a boy I had a paperback that included Dracula by Bram Stoker, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Lewis Stevenson in one volume. There were certain books I would reread every year, that was one. Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury every summer, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens every December and that three in one book every October. I read it so many times I knew how to parcel it out daily up until Halloween, starting the first page of Dracula on October 1st up to the last page of Jekyll And Hyde on October 30th. That reading was just to get in the mood for Halloween.

I relate this, (not to brag,) to state I know those texts very well as a result. Dracula and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are great books, no doubt, »

Justin Theroux Wrote Zoolander 2, Plus 15 More Actors You Didn't Know Are Also Screenwriters

16 February 2016 2:30 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"That Justin Theroux guy - where do I know him from?" Depending on whom you ask, you could get a great many answers. Of course, he's the husband of Jennifer Aniston, but he's had a string of notable acting roles too. He could be that guy from The Leftovers, the actor who played the hapless director character in Mulholland Drive, Leslie Knope's short-lived boyfriend on Parks and Recreation, or even the bad guy from Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. However, Theroux is also a screenwriter, and he's credited with a handful of major films that casual movie-goers might not associate with him. »

You'll Jump For Joy At The Dude Designs' Take On Jennifer Lawrence's New Film

8 January 2016 5:30 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

One of our favorite artists is at it again!Tom "The Dude Designs" Hodge last surprised us with a fantastic Young Frankenstein / Victor Frankenstein mash up. This time around Fox has commissioned his considerable talents for a campaign on their new Jennifer Lawrence vehicle, Joy, about a woman and the mop that would change her life.I talked with Tom about the project and he had this to say:"The aim of this design was to show the life span of "Joy" (Jennifer's title character) through ages; child to matriarch which are presented within the film. I wanted to visually represent her personal transition and tie it into the relevant 70's design aesthetic to work as an abstract depiction of growth!" If that's what he was going for,...
