Two high-profile new releases, both distributed by 20th Century Fox, took the two top spots on the national home video sales charts the week ending Oct. 19.
“X-Men: Days of Future Past,” the latest installment in the superhero franchise that bagged nearly $234 million in U.S. theaters, debuted at No. 1 on Nielsen VideoScan’s First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined, as well as Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
And DreamWorks Animation’s “Mr. Peabody & Sherman,” an animated feature based on two characters from the 1960s cartoon series “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show,” rode its $111.5 million box office gross to a No. 2 debut, also on both charts.

The year is 2025, and once again the human race finds itself in yet another clichéd fight for survival. However, on this occasion it is the Alien's cognitive ability that threatens us most, rather than their over-powered weaponry or unforgiving size.
Combat evolved, the humans efforts are seemingly futile, with victories fewer and far between. However, highly strung propaganda and vivacious speeches from leading political figures ensure a constant recruitment drive, and none are more inspiring than Major General Cage (Tom Cruise) - a charismatic personality whose emphatic belief in the ultimate victory is somewhat infectious. It's as if Cruise is playing Cruise, because that same charismatic personality is what we've come to love and respect in regards to the veteran actor.
However, when ‘Cage’ is told he will be heading the front-line into direct combat in Paris, France, the mood changes. Until then his weapon had been words and his combat inspirational… »
Sci-fi action thriller Edge Of Tomorrow sagged at the box office, despite glowing reviews. Was its marketing to blame, Ryan wonders...
Looking back over Edge Of Tomorrow’s brief history, and it seems clear that it was a production with something of an identity crisis. Adapted from a Japanese story called All You Need Is Kill, the movie went by that name right up until the summer of 2013, when Warner Bros abruptly changed the title to Edge Of Tomorrow.
Then, when Edge Of Tomorrow got its home release a couple of weeks ago, it seemed to have been given another name change. On its DVD and Blu-ray box, the tagline Live. Die. Repeat, is far more prominent than Edge Of Tomorrow’s title - the movie’s even listed in some online marketplaces as Live Die Repeat: Edge Of Tomorrow.
It’s the latest curious development in the life of »

Horror movie “Annabelle” crossed the $150 million mark at the global box office this weekend.
“The Conjuring” spinoff has some of the year’s widest profit margins. It required a mere $6.7 million to produce, plus undisclosed marketing and distribution costs. Along with “The Lego Movie,” which made $468 million globally on a $60 million budget, it ranks as one of the most profitable films of the year for Warner Bros.
Through Sunday, the story of a possessed doll had snagged $166 million worldwide, with $92 million internationally and $74 million stateside. It has opened in most major territories, save Mexico where it bows next week, Japan where it opens in January and some Latin American countries.
When the final numbers are tallied they will probably fall short of “The Conjuring’s” $318 million worldwide haul. »

Fleming: Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu told me he sees superhero movies as right-wing poison and cultural genocide for their simplistic values that stamp out human truths. Warner Bros’ Kevin Tsujihara told Wall Street his slumping film studio will turn around via a full program of 10 DC Comics tent poles to be released 2016-2020.
Will Smith and Tom Hardy are in talks to star in Fury director David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, and 2016 also brings Batman V Superman; 2017 brings Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Justice League; 2018 brings Ezra Miller as The Flash and Jason Momoa as Aquaman; 2019 brings Shazam and Justice League 2; Ray Fisher stars in Cyborg and a Green Lantern reboot arrives for 2020.

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. “Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. »

The latest Tom Cruise action film, “Edge of Tomorrow,” topped the national home video sales charts the week ending Oct. 12, bumping the prior week’s top seller, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” from Paramount Pictures, to No. 2.
“Edge of Tomorrow,” from Warner Bros., earned just over $100 million in U.S. theaters. The film is one of four new releases that debuted in the top five on Nielsen VideoScan’s First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined.
Walt Disney Studios’ “Sleeping Beauty,” newly released in an extras-packed “Diamond Edition,” bowed at No. 3. The Diamond edition of the 1959 animated classic includes the film on Blu-ray Disc, standard DVD and Digital HD.
“A Million Ways to Die in the West,” a Western comedy written, directed and starring Seth MacFarlane, debuted at No. 4. The Universal Studios release also stars Charlize Theron and Liam Neeson (along with newly named »

People can be split into two groups; those that think Tom Cruise is the finest leading man of a generation, adding energy and quality to all the films he’s worked on- and those that would like to see him killed over and over again. Well, the stars have aligned and humanity can unite, as Edge Of Tomorrow serves both camps.
Cruise plays Cage, a battle-shy army major demoted to private following an act of cowardice. Unfortunately for Cage, his slip in rank coincides with a seemingly un-winnable war against super- intelligent Matrix-esque metallic octopus aliens. So far, so silly (but good silly like Starship Troopers, not bad silly like Pacific Rim »

Close Quarters Cosplay released a music video they put together feature some incredibly awesome cosplay that fans were wearing around the Javits Convention Center at New York Comic Con this last weekend. It looks like there were a ton of talented cosplay visionaries at this convention, and I was really impressed with a lot of the costumes I saw in this video, my favorite being the military exo-suit that was inspired by Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow. You can see it in the picture above. That thing just looks badass. There's more cool stuff to see in the video, though, so check it out!

X-Men: Days of Future Past It's interesting to me in that I consider X-Men: Days of Future Past one of the best movies of 2014 and the second best blockbuster of the summer behind Edge of Tomorrow and yet I have little to no interest in seeing it again. I've seen plenty of trailers as of late promoting today's release of the DVD and Blu-ray and each time I remember enjoying the movie, but a feeling of meh when it comes to watching it again comes over me. Nevertheless, I can still I say I felt it was a good movie... that one time I saw it.
Fargo Season One Here's a show I need to get back to and finish. Everyone I've talked to and seen comment online has enjoyed it and having already watched three of the ten episodes it only makes sense I finish it.

Why choose to dress up as one Johnny Depp character when you can just go as all of them? Many attendees at this weekend's New York Comic Con came decked out as their favorite movie and comics heroes, as Comic Con attendees are wont to do. Characters from such recent films as Guardians of the Galaxy and Edge of Tomorrow were well represented. But the costume that may have taken the cake was by one guy who wore bits of Depp's various costumes, including Jack Sparrow's dreads, Edward Scissorhands' pointy appendages and, yes, even the dead-bird hat from

★★★★☆Based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka's All You Need is Kill, Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow (2014) is a rare beast: an actioner with an abundance of charm and wit. Contorting the classic hero's journey of redemption and sacrifice into a high concept allegory for how history has a tendency to repeat itself, the film sees Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt facing destiny head-on. In an attempt to win the PR battle in a war long lost, Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) is removed from his comfy orator role and thrown into the frontline against a formidable alien foe. Enclosed in the biosuit the Allies hope will win the war, Cage is shipped across the Channel to storm the beaches of Normandy in one last big push against the enemy.

Anybody who has played computer games (and who hasn’t?) knows how useful the restart option is, or the more annoying forced respawn from death. To die at a tricky part of the level and just be able to restart at a checkpoint or recently saved position helps you adapt your strategy and retry what you did wrong, till you finally make it past that tough part and reach the end of the level. This is exactly what Tom Cruise has the ability to do in Live Die Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow.
Tom Cruise plays Major William Cage, an arrogant PR man for the human war machine fighting against the alien invasion that has overtaken most of Europe. »
