Valiant Releases Trailer for Bloodshot, Their First Movie

Like any corporate comic publisher, Valiant really wants to be making movies. Their first film, Bloodshot, opens in February 2020, and the trailer is now available. I previously didn’t know anything about the character, but (and given the name, this shouldn’t surprise me) he looks like a memory-wiped super-soldier type, a magically healing violent weapon who wants to discover the truth about his past. So casting Vin Diesel seems right for this Wolverine/Robocop mashup. (Personally, I’d rather see more of […]

Captain Marvel Now Available on Home Video

Turns out a lot of people disagreed with me about the Captain Marvel movie — it was a blockbuster success! It made over a billion dollars in ticket sales! And it’s now available for home viewing. Captain Marvel launches today on your favorite digital platform, with the disc version coming on June 11 in either the 4K Cinematic Universe Edition (4K UHD, Blu-ray, and Digital Copy) or a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray and Digital Copy). I’m looking forward to giving the […]

Shazam!

Thanks to a special Fandango offer, KC and I got to see Shazam! last night. It’s a fun movie, thanks largely to the outstanding performance of Zachary Levi as the 15-year-old pretending to be an adult superhero. He does an amazing job capturing the combination of adolescent swagger and uncertainty. (Asher Angel plays Billy Batson as the teen version.) But it’s also a very boy-focused film, with the characters of the various mothers and sisters inconsistent or not well-developed. I […]

Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis

The Lego DC Comics movies are always fun and funny to watch. I was looking forward to Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman: Rage of Atlantis not just for Aquaman (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker), but for the introduction of the newest Green Lantern, Jessica Cruz (Cristina Milizia). She’s both a new character in the movie and the bonus minifigure, available with the movie for a limited time. (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a review copy.) As shouldn’t […]

Black Panther DVD Date, Details Announced

As I suspected, Black Panther will be available on home video on May 15, with digital release a week earlier on May 8. The Blu-ray Combo Pack has been renamed the Multiscreen edition, which means it comes with a digital copy (but no DVD). It’s currently available for preorder at many retailers for $23 or so. There’s a 4K Ultra HD edition that comes with Blu-ray and digital copy for $30. (Does anyone know anyone who’s shelled out for 4K […]

Second DC Super Hero Girls Lego Movie Coming This Spring

DC Super Hero Girls are a bonafide phenomenon, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that they’ve expanded into toys and DVDs, including an animated version of them as Lego toys, Lego DC Super Hero Girls: Brain Drain. That movie must have done well, since there’s now another coming out. Lego DC Super Hero Girls: Super-Villain High will be available May 1 on digital and May 15 on DVD. After a mysterious school opens across the street, the students of Super […]

When Is the Black Panther DVD Coming Out?

As you likely know, Black Panther has been a tremendous hit, surpassing all expectations. It’s already in the top ten all-time domestic highest-grossing movie list, and it set a record for best February opening ever. We finally ended up seeing it after it had already been out a month, and even at a first-thing-in-the-morning show on Saturday, the theater was packed. So when will it be available on home video? A release date hasn’t been announced, but release windows these […]
