Finding Nemo 3D Re-Release Gets a New Trailer: Long Time No Sea

Finding Nemo will be getting a re-release! This time, in 3D. Take a look at the new official trailer.

The classic Disney Pixar film stars Albert Brooks as Marlin, a Clownfish looking for his lost son Nemo with the help of a fish named Dory. Before its re-release, browse through some Finding Nemo quotes to remember why it was such a smash hit.

The film arrives in theaters on September 14. Pixar fans have plenty of options hitting theaters before then, however. Next weekend is a Pixar Memorial Day event, with the films Toy Story 3, Up, Ratatouille, and Wall-E being re-released in AMC theaters for three days.

There is also the upcoming Pixar film Brave, which release June 22. Take a look at the Brave trailer for a preview.

Red Tails Blu-Ray Review: Riveting History

Red Tails lands on Blu-Ray and DVD and brings with it the story of one of the more important moments in Civil Rights for Americans. The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African American pilots and their struggle to serve their country is chronicled in the film from producer George Lucas.

Terrence Howard in Red Tails
First and foremost, Red Tails sports a stellar cast. Oscar winner Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Oscar nominee Terrence Howard lead as officers who put their careers on the line on multiple occasions to speak up for what’s not only right for equality, but as history has proven, was right for America and the effort to win World War II.

Both actors rise to the occasion and inspire the young cast including Tristan Wilds, Ne-Yo, David Oyelowo and Nate Parker. The film has such power that it even managed to snag Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston in a small and against type role.

The timing of the Blu-Ray and DVD release is terrific with Memorial Day around the corner. In fact, it’s hard to believe that this particular World War II story hasn’t been told on the big screen as director Anthony Hemingway achieves in Red Tails.

As seen in brilliant hi-def on our Blu-Ray review copy, Lucas’ handprints are all over the film’s aerial fight scenes. It is mayhem captured as no other World War II fight sequences have achieved prior. The man is certainly in his element when it comes to special effects. And as producer, he lets the storytellers do their thing while his wide scope of an eye for the visually arresting enhances the story without getting in the way of it.

Red Tails Blu-Ray
The Red Tails Blu-ray Combo Pack special features that rocked our world include the fascinating Double Victory: The Tuskegee Airmen at War. Movie Fanatic would almost suggest watching that doc first — prior to taking in the actual film. It enhances the entire experience. The featurettes on Lucas, Hemingway and the cast of Red Tails are quite compelling as well.

MacGruber 2: Writer-Director Jorma Taccone Hints at a Sequel

Despite the tepid box office earnings of the original film, MacGruber may be getting a sequel. The comedy, based on a Saturday Night Live sketch starring Will Forte, was actually quite hilarious, despite the poor track record of post-Wayne’s World SNL films. For proof, visit our MacGruber quotes page.

While no plot or casting details have been revealed for MacGruber 2, writer/director Jorma Taccone has stated that he, Forte, and fellow writer John Solomon have been throwing around ideas for a while. One can only hope that Kristen Wiig (check out some Bridesmaids quotes) will return as Vicki St. Elmo-MacGruber.

Perhaps because the film was based on a recurring sketch with almost no plot or character development, the expectations for MacGruber were initially low, but since its release, the film, which spoofs the 80’s action genre, has gained a rather large cult following. It is likely that a sequel will have a more positive initial reaction.

While MacGruber 2 awaits a greenlight, Will Forte can be seen in a supporting role the upcoming film The Watch. Take a look at The Watch redband trailer for more.
