Infinity War

Marvel Studios has released a new in-home trailer for Avengers: Infinity War, which is set to arrive on Digital HD on July 31 and Blu-ray on August 14 with over two hours of bonus features, including several deleted scenes and commentary from directors Anthony and Joe Russo.

The digital edition of Infinity War will feature a 30-minute roundtable with Marvel Cinematic Universe directors Jon Favreau, Joss Whedon, James Gunn, Ryan Coogler, Peyton Reed, Taika Waititi, and, of course, the Russo brothers, who will reflect on how their movies “contribute to the MCU’s larger storytelling adventure.”

The 4K Cinematic Universe Edition is packed with plenty more features, including behind the scenes footage, deleted and extended scenes, a gag reel, four featurettes, and an audio commentary from the Russo brothers, as well as screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

One of two recent entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Infinity War shattered several box office records when it opened in theaters back in April earlier this year, surpassing the $2 billion mark at the global box office in just 48 days and becoming the fourth-highest grossing film of all time.

Amid an intense wave of backlash, the Academy has decided to air all Oscar categories live

Oscars
MATT SAYLES/INVISION

In the wake of an intense wave of backlash, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Friday that they will be reversing their controversial decision to present four technical categories their awards during commercial breaks at the 91st Oscars ceremony next Sunday.

“The Academy has heard the feedback from its membership regarding the Oscar presentation of four awards – Cinematography, Film Editing, Live Action Short, and Makeup and Hairstyling,” the AMPAS board of governors said in a statement. “All Academy Awards will be presented without edits, in our traditional format.”

Sources familiar with the matter tell Silver Screen Beat that the Academy’s change of heart came after AMPAS president John Bailey and CEO Dawn Hudson met with members of the group’s cinematography branch Thursday evening to discuss the decision, which did not go over well with many Hollywood filmmakers and craftspeople.

“Relegating these essential cinematic crafts to lesser status in this 91st Academy Awards ceremony is nothing less than an insult to those of us who have devoted our lives and passions to our chosen profession,” read an open letter to the Academy signed by dozens of industry figures, including directors Martin Scorsese and Spike Lee and cinematographers Roger Deakins and Rachel Morrison.

The letter ends with a quote from Academy member Seth Rogen, who tweeted earlier this week, “What better way to celebrate achievements in film than to NOT publicly honour the people whose job it is to film things.”

The 91st Oscars will air live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 24 on ABC.

LIONSGATE

Ahead of the film’s world premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival next month, Lionsgate has released the first trailer for Long Shot, the eagerly awaited romantic comedy starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen from The Night Before and 50/50 director Jonathan Levine.

As she begins eyeing a run for the Presidency, she hires Fred as her speechwriter, making him a fish out of water on her elite team.

However, despite Fred’s unpreparedness for her glamorous lifestyle in the limelight, sparks begin to fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance and a serious of unexpected (and somewhat dangerous) incidents.

In addition to the dynamic duo that is Rogen and Theron, Long Shot‘s incredible ensemble cast also includes the likes of O’Shea Jackson Jr., Alexander Skarsgård, Andy Serkis, Ravi Patel, Randall Park, and June Diane Raphael.
