‘The Walking Dead’ Tops Movies on Home-Video Sales Chart

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix may have become synonymous with “binge viewing” of TV shows, but the subscription streaming goliath hasn’t killed off the once-booming TV-on-disc business.

A disc collection of season five of the hit zombie series “The Walking Dead” topped both national home video sales charts the week ending Aug. 30. The Anchor Bay package debuted at No. 1 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray chart.

Sony Pictures’ “Aloha,” a theatrical underperformer that took in just $21 million in U.S. theaters, also found itself in high demand among consumers purchasing discs last week, bowing at No. 2 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 3 on the Blu-ray chart. The film generated 31% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray.

DreamWorks Animation’s “Home,” distributed by 20th Century Fox, slipped to No. 3 on the overall disc sales chart after a week at No. »

The nascent 4K Ultra HD business got a big boost today in Berlin on Wednesday when Samsung announced the first Ultra HD Blu-ray player and 20th Century Fox president Mike Dunn announced the industry’s first software releases.

Ultra HD is the much-ballyhooed next-generation viewing format, with four times the resolution and 64 times as many colors as HD.

At its press conference at the Ifa 2015 trade show, Samsung announced, among other products, an Ultra HD Blu-ray Player (Ubd-K8500) that supports Hdr content and can play Uhd Blu-ray at up to 60 frames per second. The player will also upscale standard Blu-ray Discs to Uhd quality and, in line with the versatile nature of recent Blu-ray players, also will be able to stream 4K content as it becomes available. The Ultra HD Blu-ray player is expected to launch in early 2016.

Dunn, one of the home entertainment sector’s leading futurists, participated in »

‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E’ could learn a thing or two from ‘Rogue Nation’s’ nostalgic score

31 August 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

Joe Kraemer

Paramount Pictures

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Daniel Pemberton

WaterTower Music

In his score for Kingsman: The Secret Service, Henry Jackman wants you to know he’s a James Bond fan. He just doesn’t want to tell you. Monte Norman’s iconic guitar riff pops in and out of his score, and brassy John Barry flourishes pepper the background music of Matthew Vaughn’s latest pulpy indulgence. Vaughn and comic book brute Mark Millar’s spy thriller struck a chord with audiences in February with gaudy, gory violence and in-jokes to the Ian Fleming novels it draws from. Strangely though, Jackman’s half-baked music never follows suit, tiptoeing around its homages rather than fully committing to its Roger Moore era obsessions.

The music of Kingsman wants its both ways, retro while still feeling fresh enough for modern box office, a shared paradox with The Man From U.N.C.L.E., »

8 great films cursed by bad endings: Did Kingsman really need that anal sex joke?

29 August 2015 4:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

As the ending to one of the best films ever says, "Nobody's perfect", and the same goes for cinema, as these 12 great movies with bad endings prove.

Spoiler avoiders, beware, however: there will be in-depth discussion of several twisty movies below, so if you're of a nervous moviegoing disposition, click away now.

1. Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983)

What went right: There's a lot to love in Jedi: one of the best lightsaber battles in the series, the Jabba's palace break-out sequence, top notch SFX – the speeder bikes alone – and finally, victory for the good guys. And yes, Princess Leia's bikini, if you're into that sort of thing.

What went wrong: George Lucas. In fiddling with the ending again and again, it's hard to work out what is the "definitive" version is, but however it officially ends – goodbye old Darth Vader, hello young Darth Vader – the final minutes »

Batman v Superman Star Henry Cavill Weighs In On So-Called Superhero Movie Fatigue

27 August 2015 8:14 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In the following interview, Henry Cavill is asked how he feels to hear constant complains about too many superhero movies despite the fact that 2015 for example has seen a lot of different types of genres get the spotlight, including the spy one thanks to Kingsman: The Secret Service and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. As you might expect, it's an assessment the British actor doesn't agree with. "I think it's anything which is prevalent and on top people are going to complain about," the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star says. "At the moment, the superhero genre is the most prevalent genre out there despite the fact that the spy genre is so strong this year. That's just the nature of it. It's one of those decade long genres, the superhero thing, which is going to keep on going and people will complain about it all the time, of course. »

‘Insurgent,’ ‘Home’ Swap Spots Atop Disc Charts

27 August 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In a slow week for new releases, Lionsgate’s “Insurgent” and DreamWorks Animation’s “Home” remained in the two top spots on the national home video sales charts for the week ending Aug. 23, although they swapped places.

“Home,” distributed on disc by 20th Century Fox, moved up to No. 1 on the Nielsen VideoScan overall disc sales chart, while “Insurgent,” the sequel to “Divergent,” slipped to No. 2.

Debuting at No. 3 was the “Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection,” a compilation of a dozen shorts — including “Frozen Forever” and “Lorenzo,” the latter nominated for a best animated short Oscar in 2004 — that’s available only on Blu-ray Disc or as a digital download.

Not surprisingly, the set bowed at No. 1 on Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray sales chart, with “Home” and “Insurgent” close behind.

Warner’s “Hot Pursuit” slipped from No. 3 to No. 4 on both charts, while Paramount’s “NCIS: The Twelfth Season »

Zachary Quinto talks Star Trek Beyond, says Spock will be paired up with Bones

27 August 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production in full swing on Paramount’s Star Trek Beyond, MTV caught up with star Zachary Quinto to ask his thoughts on new director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6), who has taken over from J.J. Abrams to helm the third instalment in the relaunched feature film series.

“Invariably there’s going to be a different vibe when you remove someone as gregarious and outgoing and talented as J.J.,” states Quinto. “But Justin has come in with this really interesting and confident energy that’s a little bit more reserved and a little bit quieter, but also very powerful and really sure-handed. He knows exactly what he wants this movie to look like and that’s really exciting.”

The top 25 secret agents in film

27 August 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of American Ultra's arrival in UK cinemas, here's our pick of the 25 finest, sneakiest secret agents in film...

Operatives. Spies. Moles. Infiltrators. Secret agents go by many names. In fact, Britain's national security agency doesn't even call them agents - they're covert human intelligence sources, or simply “officers".

Whatever we choose to call them, secret agents lead necessarily furtive and obscure lives - so obscure that most of what we know about them is defined by what we've seen and read in books and movies.

During the Cold War, the image of the secret agent as a well-groomed sophisticate in a suit proliferated all over the world, and even in the high-tech landscape of the 21st century, that image still stands - just look at such movies as Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and, of course, the Bond franchise. But secret agents can come in many other guises, »

'Star Trek 3' Video Pays Tribute to Leonard Nimoy

25 August 2015 2:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, fans got an early look at Star Trek Beyond through a series of videos for the sequel's Omaze campaign. This initiative highlights nine worthy charities, each hand-picked by cast members, while giving a few lucky fans a chance to win a trip to the set. Since this is the final week of the campaign, star Zachary Quinto put out one last video, which pays tribute to the late Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy.

Fans who contribute to the campaign this week will be donating to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, an organization that is leading the way in advancing cures for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. This charity was nominated by Susan Nimoy in honor of her husband Leonard Nimoy. The campaign ends on Monday, September 1, and fans who want to win a trip to the set must donate $10 or more.

How good as 2015 been for moviegoers?  This past year audiences have witnessed an opening act that included blockbusters such as “Cinderella,” “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Furious 7.”  Hollywood followed that string up with summer goods such as “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Trainwreck,” “Inside Out” and “Jurassic World” (currently no. 3 all-time at the U.S. box office).  And while we’re currently experiencing the annual cycle of late August dumps you won't even watch on an airplane, the movie gods may have saved the best for last.
