November 28th Blu-ray & DVD Releases Include Misery Collector’s Edition, Super Dark Times, M.F.A., Creep 2

  • DailyDead
We may only have several home entertainment releases for this Tuesday, but as the saying goes, “quality over quantity,” because this bunch of Blu-rays and DVDs are a stellar lot of films. One of my favorite horror films of 2017, Mark DuplassCreep 2, makes its way home on November 28th courtesy of The Orchard, and Scream Factory has given Rob Reiner’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Misery the Collector’s Edition treatment (and deservedly so).

For you cult film fans, both Death Laid an Egg and Deathdream (aka Dead of Night) get the HD treatment this week, and other notable releases this Tuesday include M.F.A., Rememory, Super Dark Times, Woodshock, and Trailer Trauma 4: Television Trauma.

Creep 2 (The Orchard, DVD)

‘Wonder Woman’ Bonus Epilogue Scene Teases Mother Boxes

I’m not particularly well-versed in comic book-ese, so you’ll have to forgive when I say that the Mother Boxes from the DC Film universe are essentially their version of Marvel‘s Infinity Stones. Um….right? At least they are to me. Essentially, they are some powerful doodads and, more importantly, the villain Steppenwolf in “Justice League” will apparently be looking for them in the upcoming film. That’s probably all you need to know to get this new epilogue to “Wonder Woman.”

As director Patty Jenkins explains, this summer’s blockbuster didn’t have much in the way of deleted scenes, but this new sequence — featuring Lucy Davis’ Etta Candy, Saïd Taghmaoui’s Sameer, Ewen Bremner’s Charlie, and Eugene Brave Rock’s Chief Napi — creates a little connective tissue between “Wonder Woman” and “Justice League.”

Wonder Woman Deleted Scene Teases a Justice League Set Up

Thanks to Yahoo, we have a deleted scene from Wonder Woman for you to watch, which is a part of the upcoming Home Entertainment release. The clip would have helped set up Justice League as it features Lucy Davis’s Etta Candy meeting up with Steve Trevor’s team where she briefs them on their next mission. That mission refers to them going out to find a powerful artifact that is most likely one of the Mother Boxes, which may play a big role in Justice League. These Mother Boxes are closely tied to the villain Darkseid.

I wonder if they cut this scene because of the story changes that are rumored to have taken place during Joss Whedon's Justice League reshoots. It has been previously reported that the end of Justice League has been changed. It was explained:

Wonder Woman Deleted Epilogue Teases Something Big [Video]

Etta Candy's back in @WonderWoman Blu-ray bonus; exclusive sneak peek at pic.twitter.com/Ptd4Sao0ar

— Yahoo Movies (@YahooMovies) August 28, 2017

Wonder Woman hit theaters earlier this year, and it proved to be quite the hit among fans. After having two films that were less than well received, it certainly was a breath of fresh air. One of the aspects that truly worked in its favor was its standalone nature. Yes, it was connected to the larger universe, but thanks to its taking place in World War I, it managed to steer clear of any unnecessary connections with the rest of the films.

However, in a new epilogue revealed in the digital release of the film, that all changes. Yahoo! Movies was able to share the first 40 seconds of the scene (which you can check out above), but that only gives you a flavor.

Watch: Wonder Woman Epilogue Seemingly Sets Up Justice League

As we prepare for Wonder Woman to arrive on Digital HD on August 29th, a brief clip from a previously unseen Epilogue has now surfaced, and it focuses on the character of Etta Candy, played by Lucy Davis.

Details of the scene have already been announced, and it was actually teased earlier today, but this snippet is our first proper glimpse of a moment that’s potentially very significant for the cohesion of the DC Extended Universe. And that’s because it looks like the Epilogue is laying the foundation for Justice League.

Titled Etta’s Mission, the scene involves Etta Candy getting “the boys back together for a secret mission that could impact humanity’s future.” From the clip above, we can see that Sameer (Said Taghmaoui) and Charlie (Ewen Bremner) are the boys in question, and Etta seems to assemble them in the same London pub in which

Remembering Anita Pallenberg, the Muse at the Center of The Rolling Stones’ Tumultuous Love Triangle
With the death of Anita Pallenberg , the world lost an icon of the Swinging Sixties. The Italian-German model became a fashion It Girl of the age and her friendship with Andy Warhol integrated her into the cutting edge art world. She appeared in cult movie classics including Candy (featuring Ringo Starr) and Jane Fonda’s Barbarella, but her most famous role is undoubtedly that of muse for the Rolling Stones. Her high-profile relationships with two of the band’s guitarists, Brian Jones and Keith Richards, made her an enduring part of the Stones’ mythology. It became one of rock ‘n

Anita Pallenberg, Actress and Longtime Girlfriend of Keith Richards, Dies at 73
Anita Pallenberg, muse of the Rolling Stones and longtime girlfriend of Keith Richards, who appeared in films including Nicolas Roeg’s “Performance,” died Tuesday at 73.

Stella Schnabel, daughter of painter Julian Schnabel, reported her death on Instagram. “Thank you for the most important lessons,” wrote Schnabel.

An Italian-German actress, model, and fashion designer, Pallenberg was known as an icon of 1960s style. She was said to have an important influence on several Rolling Stones albums, and described herself as “A vagabond. An adventurer. I am not a person with one specific talent. I wish I was.”

Her film roles included playing the Great Tyrant in Roger Vadim’s “Barbarella,” a nurse in cult film “Candy,” and in “Performance.”

In her later years, she took classes in textiles, designed clothes, gardened, and painted. She also appeared in an episode of “Absolutely Fabulous” with Mick Jagger’s one-time girlfriend and fellow fashion inspiration Marianne Faithfull,

Looking back at Oliver Stone's JFK

Robert Keeling Apr 19, 2017

Kevin Costner headlined an all-star cast in Oliver Stone's JFK. It was a film that led to an act of Congress being passed...

Oliver Stone’s epic conspiracy-thriller JFK, surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the case brought about by New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison in relation to his murder, was released in 1991 to an astonishing level of critical backlash. Even before JFK arrived in theatres it was being pilloried and attacked by many in the media. The attacks were kick-started by Washington Post correspondent George Lardner, an investigative reporter who wrote a piece called On the Set: Dallas In Wonderland; How Oliver Stone’s Version Of The Kennedy Assassination Exploits The Edge Of Paranoia, which was actually based solely on a leaked copy of Stone’s first draft of the script.

A Complete Guide to Every Song Written By Paul McCartney and Elvis Costello During Their Partnership

A Complete Guide to Every Song Written By Paul McCartney and Elvis Costello During Their Partnership
Though his music can be heard in all corners of the globe, Paul McCartney’s songwriting process is impressively homegrown. When he teamed with Elvis Costello for sessions that would ultimately yield his 1989 album Flowers in the Dirt, the pair met at McCartney’s personal studio: a converted corn mill dubbed Hog Hill Mill, a short drive from his farm in rural southern England. Armed with nothing more high-tech than a pencil, paper and acoustic guitar, two of the world’s most influential composers climbed the steps to a small office tucked above the studio and pulled tunes out of thin air.

'Blindman': The Story Behind a Drunk Beatle's Spaghetti Western

'Blindman': The Story Behind a Drunk Beatle's Spaghetti Western
When Paul McCartney shocked the world in April 1970 with his announcement of the Beatles' break-up, drummer Ringo Starr added a surprise of his own by becoming (initially, at least) the most musically active member of the former Fab Four.

As he would later recount in the lyrics of "Early 1970," the deceptively jaunty b-side of his 1971 hit "It Don't Come Easy," Starr was the only Beatle who didn't have any serious beef with any other member of the band at the time. Feeling lost without the family dynamic of the musical

Iggy Pop and Jim Jarmusch on Ultimate Stooges Doc 'Gimme Danger'
When the Stooges split up in 1974, they had every reason to think they'd be completely forgotten by history. Their debut LP peaked at Number 106 in 1969 – and that was their best seller. They spent their final shows dodging beer bottles hurtled by angry bikers that had little interest in seeing a wild, shirtless singer named Iggy Pop screaming out songs like "Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell" and "Open Up and Bleed." Soon after splitting, guitarist Ron Asheton and his brother, drummer Scott Asheton, moved back in with their parents.

Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten White People Doing The Right Thing

I think everyone in this country should be aware by now that our race relations are at an all time low. It seems every time we hear the news another black citizen has been shot by the police or police have been shot by someone angry about these shootings. It cannot continue. We as a nation cannot keep going down this road.

I have always sympathized with Black Americans. In fact as a Scot and Irish American I have always sympathized with anyone who ever got pushed around, starting with Native Americans, Asians, Jewish immigrants, women of any ethnic group, Hispanics from any country.

I also sympathize with the people who are tasked with law enforcement. It’s a tough job. I had some training in that area. A couple of years ago I was hired by a Security company and was trained in unarmed, and armed, uniformed security. I

Visual-Effects Pioneer Douglas Trumbull on ‘2001: A Space Odyssey,’ Digital Innovations

Visual-Effects Pioneer Douglas Trumbull on ‘2001: A Space Odyssey,’ Digital Innovations
Visual-effects pioneer Douglas Trumbull first appeared in Variety on Dec. 17, 1968, in a review of the sex satire “Candy,” for which he created two outer-space sequences. His other movie credit that year was more memorable: “2001: A Space Odyssey,” on which he was one of the masterminds behind the groundbreaking special effects.

Trumbull — also known for his effects work on such films as “Blade Runner” and “The Tree of Life,” and for directing 1972’s influential “Silent Running” — continues to push the boundaries of filmmaking, working on digital innovations and theater design as part of his ongoing quest to create a new and immersive experience for moviegoers. He spoke recently with Variety about how he got his career off the ground by working on the Stanley Kubrick classic.

Listen To Me Marlon – The Review

This year has already seen several extraordinary feature-length documentaries, many of which were pulled from the popular arts. Actually some excellent examples focused on the music world, with Lambert & Stamp and Amy attracting a great deal of acclaim (and quite a bit early Oscar-buzz). This new release delves into another art, the art (and it really is one) of acting, by giving us a peek at a true legend of stage and screen. Often actors become a touchstone, a symbol for the decade in which they garnered their greatest triumphs. In the 1950’s, the two actors who truly exploded onto the scene were James Dean and Marlon Brando. While Dean was a bright, shooting star snuffed out by tragedy after just three films, Brando rode a bumpy rocket, with highs and lows, into the next century. Biographies have filled the bookshelves through the years, but what did he think of his life and work?
