RT on DVD: WALL-E And An Exclusive Tropic Thunder Deleted Scene!
Watch Jack Black in an alternate scene from Tropic Thunder!
The summer's biggest oohs and ahhs (and guffaws) hit DVD this week, as Wall-E and Tropic Thunder hit shelves with tons of bonus content for fans. Cineastes will be rewarded by the latest from Harmony Korine (Mister Lonely) and David Lynch (the multi-film Lime Green set), while early gift hunters should check out a 300 Limited Collector's Edition and Columbia's massive Best Pictures set.
Ah, what gifts Steven Spielberg hath given us. Twenty one years after filming a bit part in Spielberg's WWII drama Empire of the Sun, comedian-turned-filmmaker Ben Stiller cobbled together an idea for a comedy about a big-budget Hollywood war movie run amok on location, and Tropic Thunder was born; Empire's child star didn't do too bad for himself either. This week Tropic Thunder -- The Unrated Director's Cut hits arrives, which means the biggest laughs of the year are moments away from your DVD player.
The jungle antics of Hollywood shills Tugg Speedman (Stiller), Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black), and Method actor Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.) are on full tilt in the 2-disc Unrated edition, which comes packed with bonus features that capitalize on the movie's meta-leanings; like the fake trailers within the film (The Fatties: Fart 2, Scorcher IV: Global Meltdown, and the controversial Satan's Alley), the faux-documentary Rain of Madness captures the "actors" of Tropic Thunder during their hectic production. The release also includes tons of behind-the-scenes featurettes, filmmaker and cast commentaries, deleted and extended scenes, an alternate ending, and more.Watch an exclusive clip from Tropic Thunder below!!
