Logan Blu Ray details announced 

20th Century Fox have announced a home-entertainment release date, for the critically acclaimed Logan, which is set to hit 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on May 23rd in North America and July 10th in the UK. It will also include a black and white version of the film, in the bonus features. 

You can order Logan via Amazon.

Sir Patrick Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Star Trek: The Next Generation), Stephen Merchant (Hello Ladies, The Office), Boyd Holbrook (Narcos) and newcomer Dafne Keen join Jackman in the iconic character’s final chapter, directed by James Mangold (The Wolverine, Walk the Line). 

Mangold brings a visceral and gritty realism to the story, based on one of Marvel Comics’ most popular characters. In the near future, a weary Logan (Hugh Jackman) cares for an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart) in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant (Dafne Keen) arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

In addition to the version seen in cinemas, the 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray contain a slick monochrome version of the film, entitled Logan Noir, giving the acclaimed story an all-new look.  Special features also include nearly 90 minutes of original content, comprising deleted scenes and a behind-the-scenes documentary to immerse fans into the process of bringing Logan’s final ride to life.

Special features for the 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray include:

* Logan Noir – black and white version of the film

* Audio commentary by Director James Mangold

* Deleted scenes with optional audio commentary by James Mangold (DVD and Blu-ray™ only)

* Making Logan – behind-the-scenes documentary

Big Finish feels the Burn

Audio production company Big Finish, announced today that Burn Gorman will be reprising his role as Owen Harper. For their Torchwood range of audios. 
Burn’s first audio, will be Corpse Day, which will be released in May. 

Producer James Goss said:

“We’ve been trying to get Burn Gormansince we started. We’ve been hunting him across the globe, from Man In The High Castle to And Then There Were None, and we kept getting so close – and then he vanished into the depths of Hungary to make a film for months – but as soon as the project wrapped he was raring to go”

Goss added:

“Watching him recreate Torchwood’s sour zombie doctor was amazing – it was impossible to think that this was the same man who’d had us all giggling moments before. It was one of the most delightful days we’ve had on Torchwood – we put him together with Tom Price and just left them to it. Owen Harper is back from the dead, and he’s deader than ever. If you’ve never tried a Torchwood, I beg you to try Corpse Day. It’s pretty much everything.”

Here’s the synopsis:

Glynn Lewis is just putting up a spice rack when there’s a knock at the door. A knock that will bring a brutal end to his perfect family.

PC Andy is very excited. It’s Corpse Day – the day when the local constabulary get help on dead cases from Torchwood. This year, he’s volunteered to act as liaison, and he knows he’s going to have a brilliant time.

For Dr Owen Harper, today’s just like any other. There’ll be bloodshed, screaming and murder. At the end of it all, he doesn’t care. After all, life’s just for the living, and he’s long dead.

Zack Snyder explains Robin’s death 

I know I’m going against the grain here, but I actually enjoyed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. It was a deeply flawed movie, but it wasn’t as bad as people want it to be.  

If you have seen the movie, then you know that there are glimpse into the DCU. One of those involves a Robin suit, in a glass display case with “HAHAHA The Joke’s On You Batman” graffitied on it.

Batman V Superman director Zack Snyder sat down with IGN, to explain that scene:

“In my mind, it was that Robin had died 10 years earlier, during some run-in with a young Joker, so there was a fun backstory there to play with. I felt like the whole idea was that there had been loss and there had been sacrifice. In a weird way, he had sacrificed everything to be Batman. He doesn’t really have a life outside the cave. I thought that including Robin, a dead Robin, was helping us understand that he’s been on quite a little journey.”
