Decisions, decisions. 20th Century Fox has released the artwork for the Blu-ray release of "Prometheus" and revealed that there are actually two versions of the release that fans can take home.
The first is a full four-disc collector's edition that includes the theatrical cut, 3D theatrical cut, DVD and digital copy of the movie, two sets of commentaries, the 15 minutes of deleted scenes we previously heard about and five special featurettes. The second, a two-disc release of the film, doesn't include the 3D or any of the special featurettes. Like we said: decisions, decisions.
"Marvel's The Avengers (2012)"
Director: Joss Whedon
Cast: Robert Downey, Jr.
, Chris Evans
, Mark Ruffalo
Story: Marvel Studios delivers the ultimate comic-book film, which ties together such characters as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) for a big-screen franchise team-up like no other.
On the Disc:
All of the "Avengers" Blu-rays come packed with special features, and though there several different versions of the disc, the extras remain the same for the large part. The only differences between the versions are packaging and the inclusion of a 3-D version. Among the many special features, which include deleted scenes, gag reels and behind-the-scenes featurettes, it might be the least flashy bonus that gives you a great reason to own this disc. Joss Whedon recorded an eloquent, insightful, and hilarious commentary track that makes the movie worth rewatching for the umpteenth time.
"Memento" gets most—if not all—of the credit as the starting point for the Christopher Nolan we know today. Sure, the story of Leonard Shelby and his backwards chase to find his wife's killer catapulted Nolan into the realm of the indie darling, but his first film, "Following," marks the real beginning of the man who would bring us the Batman
Since Criterion announced yesterday that they plan to bring "The Following" to Blu-ray in their typical, decked-out style and it's also readily available on Netflix Instant Watch, now is a good a time as any to take a look back.
"Following" tells the story of a nameless young man, played by Jeremy Theobald, who isn't cutting it as a writer, but eventually finds himself under the wing of a charismatic thief, Cobb, a name that would appear later in "Inception."

When it came to making "Battleship," it turns out the movie's biggest villain was actually the ocean.
Director Peter Berg decided that he wanted to film a good portion of the movie on the open seas. But as you can see in the exclusive clip we have from the "Battleship" home video special features, that was much easier said than done.
"The physicality of working in the water is very difficult. Normally things take twice as long as you think they will," stunt coordinator Kevin Scott said in the featurette. "We had up to 85 people in the water. We had people jumping from as high as 35 feet. We had explosions, we had fire, we had everything."
"Think Like a Man" wowed audiences back in April when it knocked "The Hunger Games" out of the top spot at the box office with its impressive $33 million debut.

When found out not that long ago that the Blu-ray and DVD for "Prometheus," due out sometime in October, would contain 30 minutes of deleted and extended scenes, it sent our minds racing as to what might be included.
