WolverineA pair of DVDs get the spotlight this week, one giving the origin treatment to Marvel's clawed mutant and the other taking us back to the origins of Hasbro's robots in disguise.

"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" (Two-Disc Special Edition): We've already told you all about the film itself, so what does the DVD offer? Along with a variety of "Making Of" and behind-the-scenes featurettes (one features Stan Lee and Len Wein reflecting on the character's history), the two-disc DVD and Blu-Ray editions both feature an assortment of deleted and alternate scenes.

However, rather than simply providing another take on existing shots, some of the extra footage offers interesting spins on the existing material. Read More...

With "Coraline" dropping its DVD this week, it was naturally perfect timing for director Henry Selick and writer Neil Gaiman to bring their parade to the San Diego Comic-Con. We of course had the pair drop by our studio for an interview, and before they left we asked if they'd pose for our ever-growing photo booth. The result is below, check it out and then hit the gallery link for Stan Lee, Anna Faris and many others.

One of the few comic book-related movies that wasn't actually based on a comic, "Push" stars Chris Evans and Dakota Fanning as characters with superpower-like abilities on the run from a mysterious organization. The film hit DVD this week, and we've got an exclusive clip from the bonus features that runs down the various classes of heroes/villains that you'll run into. Check it out below.

'Watchmen: Under The Hood'Even though the buzz surrounding "Watchmen" has slowly begun to die down (if last weekend's box office drop is any indication, that is), fans of the film still have plenty to look forward -- namely, "Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter," the upcoming two-disc DVD/Blu-ray feature containing the titular story and the Minutemen exposé, "Under the Hood," both originally parts of the best-selling "Watchmen" comic but not included in the film.

And while we've been able to show plenty from "Tales of the Black Freighter" here at Splash Page, very little has been seen or heard about with regards to "Under the Hood" -- a pseudo tell-all book by Hollis Mason (a.k.a. Nite Owl I) which chronicles the rise and fall of the original Minutemen (highlights of which were very briefly touched on in the title sequence of "Watchmen"). Today, however, Warner Bros. has released a Q & A with "Under the Hood" director Eric Matthies, in which he discusses his approach to the adaptation, the cast, and his favorite scene from the animated feature.

'Green Lantern: First Flight'Clearly, fans of DC Comics' resident Emerald Knight, Green Lantern, have had plenty to get excited about lately. First, it looks like a "Green Lantern" feature film is moving right along, with a targeted release date of December 17, 2010 and director Martin Campbell attached to helm (although an actor for the lead role has yet to be determined).

But since 2010 is seemingly light-years away, the fine folks over at Warner Home Video will be throwing GL fans a Kilowog-sized bone on July 28 with the latest addition to their acclaimed series of animated feature films, "Green Lantern: First Flight." The studio dropped the specs of the DVD and Blu-ray release at WonderCon over the weekend, and after the jump, we've got the lowdown on what GL geeks can expect from the sets. Read More...

'Tales of the Black Freighter'It's been a heckuva a week for those of us looking forward to the wide-release of "Watchmen" -- from our exclusive clip of My Chemical Romance's offering to the soundtrack, to all-new posters and images, to exclusive interviews with director Zack Snyder -- if there's still anyone out there not excited for the March 6 release, then they're just not paying attention.

And Warner Bros. has added the icing to the proverbial cake this afternoon, by releasing the specs to the accompanying DVD and Blu-ray collection of "Watchmen: The Black Freighter & Under the Hood" (the stories within the story for those of you who haven't read the comic). After the jump, we'll run down what fans can expect from the set. Read More...

'Watchmen'Short of a certain comic book icon threatening to "spit venom" all over the film, you'll be hard pressed to find anyone out there who isn't excited about the March 6 release of "Watchmen." And a major part of that excitement has to do with the Warner Bros. hype machine, offering us fans ridiculously cool viral videos and websites that give us a glimpse into what we can expect from Zack Snyder's take on the revolutionary graphic novel.

And the fine folks at Warner Bros. ain't letting up anytime soon, as today, they've announced the details on both the "Music From The Motion Picture 'Watchmen'" (which My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way recently spoke to MTV about contributing to) and the "'Watchmen' Original Motion Picture Score" soundtracks, as well as info for the upcoming "'Watchmen': The Complete Motion Comic" DVD and Blu-ray box sets. After the jump, we've got the rundown on all of this for those of you looking forward to watching -- and listening -- to the Watchmen. Read More...

Tales of the Black FreighterYou know "Watchmen" is going to be dark. Now it looks like its tandem DVD-release pirate story may be even darker. Last year, the New York Times reported that Warner Bros. would be releasing two of the “Watchmen” graphic novel’s stories-within-the-story as their own DVD feature. Today, it looks the pirate comic within the comic, “Tales of the Black Freighter,” may have earned an R rating from the MPAA, according to RopeofSilicon.com.

Warner Bros. has been breaking out loads of extra “Watchmen” content ahead of the film’s March 6 release date, which may be dangling by a thread. And anyone who’s been watching the trailers knows director Zack Snyder fully intends to flesh out original writer Alan Moore’s bleak portrait on superheroes. Read More...

Originally shown in cinemas in 1941-1942, anyone who's had the chance to check out these cartoons knows that the animation not only holds up to today's standards, but arguably surpasses it. After the jump, we run down what fans can expect from the 2-disc set. Read More...
