‘Ghostbusters’ Is Returning To Theaters This August

Ivan Reitman’s seminal 1984 sci-fi staple Ghostbusters just turned 30 this past weekend, and with slews of celebratory anniversary merch, art galleries, and a Blu-ray re-release on the horizon, it only makes sense to treat fans to the ultimate gift by putting the beloved flick back on the big screen — something those of us too young or not yet born in 1984 are eternally grateful for.

Entertainment Weekly notes that Ghostbusters will be shown across the US and Canada on over 700 screens August 29 in a restored and remastered 4K version that will surely not disappoint. …

LOL: Gag Reel From ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Finds Its Way Online

The middle of the work week is upon us, and if you’re anything like the UTG staff you could probably use a good laugh to help get you through the day.

Following a solid run at the box office in November, Thor: The Dark World is now promoting its home video release, and amongst the many bonus features finding their way online in recent weeks was the film’s hilarious gag reel. From flubbed lines, to hard slaps, hazardous capes, and more than a few silly faces, the footage offered reveals a side of the filmmaking process many never get to …

UTG CONTEST: Win a Copy of ‘Resolution’ on Blu-ray Combo Pack

If you’re a regular reader here on UTG, you may recall our praises of the indie horror film, Resolution, or our interview with its directors, Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson, where we claimed Resolution to be “one of the most legitimately creepy and intense horror genre films we’ve seen in some time. Without any over the top visual effects and a unique twist on the supernatural theme, the sense of reality and terror in the film has certainly resonated with us and the film’s ending has led to some conversations amongst us that have seen it.”

MOVIE REVIEW: Rewind This!

Movie: Rewind This!
Director: Josh Johnson
Studio: Imperial PolyFarm Productions

Take a second and think about where your VHS tapes from your childhood are. On a shelf? In a box? You can’t remember because it’s been so long? None of these answers would be surprising; since the genesis of the VHS tape in the 1970s, the format to distribute film and other videos has changed twice. Rewind This! tells the story of the VHS cassette, and its importance in film history. But Blu-Ray discs look so much better than VHS tapes, can store more information, and come chock-filled with special …

Watch The Bloody Alternate Opening For “Scream 4″

Scream 4 was a great film, but this opening would have made it even better.

Without spoiling the opening of the actual film, let’s just say the one you can find after the jump may not be as funny, but it is definitely a lot bloodier.

Scream 4 arrives on DVD/Blu Ray today and comes highly recommended by the UTG staff.…
