When it was released last year, many people didn't know what to make of "Cloud Atlas," the complex, layered film from the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer. It was too big, too odd for most mainstream audiences, but it wowed such a big portion of the critics that it seemed destined for a long life beyond its theatrical run.

Now that "Cloud Atlas" is coming to Blu-ray and DVD, the film will hopefully be able to find a bigger audience, that will be able to dive into like it needs to be.

The disc hits shelves on May 14, but we have an exclusive look at one of the behind-the-scenes featurettes. You can check out the clip in the player above!

There's something you need to know about Mark Wahlberg. He'll play a tough guy in movies like "Broken City," which hits Blu-ray and DVD today, but he can also have his more tender moments.

For example, in this exclusive deleted scene from "Broken City," Wahlberg has some quiet time with his girlfriend, played by Natalie Martinez. Her character, also named Natalie, has a film premiere that she needs to attend in L.A., but her New York-based beau, Wahlberg's Billy Taggart, doesn't want her to go alone.

It's just one of the quieter moments in what is otherwise big bang crime thriller, which also stars Russell Crowe as the mayor of NYC.

"Broken City" hits Blu-ray and DVD today, April 30.

Yesterday, MTV News exclusively debuted the alternate ending to "Silver Linings Playbook," the movie that earned Jennifer Lawrence her Academy Awards, for which we will be eternally grateful. If you're just catching it now, you are in for a real treat.

The alternate ending is essentially an extended cut of the theatrical version's original conclusion, so don't expect any crazy twist or anything. (The whole movie didn't take place in someone's head, but we'd watch that.) Pat and Tiffany still win the dance contest and find love, before heading back to the Solitano's for another Eagles game.

It's an interesting look at the ending that could have been, but more importantly, we get new Tiffany moments from Jennifer Lawrence, who is still in top form in the alternate cut.

When filming "Jack Reacher," Tom Cruise presented director Christopher McQuarrie with a unique problem. Most actors do not do their own stunt driving and therefore require stand-ins and crafty camera work to create the illusion that they do.

As we see in this exclusive featurette from the Best Buy edition of the "Jack Reacher" Blu-ray, Cruise required the opposite. Since the actor would be doing his own stunts, McQuarrie needed to create shots that would show off his actor behind the wheel.

The resulting chase sequence ended up looking like something we don't see a lot in movie anymore, where the shot hammers home the realness of the situation.

Learn all about it in the video above, and look for "Jack Reacher" on Blu-ray and DVD on May 7 and for digital download now!

Badlands

There's essentially nothing to say about "Badlands," Terrence Malick's first film, that hasn't already been said. The Bonnie and Clyde story of an impressionable young girl and the bad boy who sweeps her away from a quiet life marked the beginnings of Malick's enigmatic career and status as a master, and anyone who has seen the 1973 starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek can attest to that.
Badlands
For those who haven't seen "Badlands," Criterion just gave it a proper Blu-ray release, complete with a stunning 4k digital transfer. Like Criterion's previous Malick releases, "Days of Heaven" and "The Thin Red Line," watching "Badlands" leaves you with the distinct impression that the Blu-ray edition of these particular releases is the only way to see these films at home.

Aside from the discs beautiful presentation, "Badlands" is the logical place to begin a study of Malick's films for a number of reasons. The director's first film quickly establishes the stylistic flourishes that would come to define his vision, all the while being his most accessible film. Malick's career followed a clear trajectory that makes watching his films from the beginning a richer experience and one that illustrates the growth of a visionary and a poet.
Badlands
After taking in "Badlands," the disc's extras provide a world of insight that will satisfy the natural urge to know more after watching a Malick movie for the first time. "Making 'Badlands' " is a new documentary that includes interviews with Spacek and Sheen, plus you can take in a fascinating interview with Malick's editor, Billy Weber.

"Badlands" on Criterion Blu-ray is simply an experience that any movie lover cannot afford to miss.
