Between Netflix‘s film-festival acquisitions and its original feature production (not to mention its TV series), the streaming service has become an entertainment industry juggernaut. Its commitment to movies clearly extends beyond new releases, however, as evidenced by yesterday’s headline-making news that it is coming to the rescue of The Other Side of the Wind, a never-completed film by Orson Welles that a team of producers (including Filip Jan Rymsza, Frank Marshall, and Peter Bogdanovich) has been trying to assemble for release for years, to no avail. As described by The New York Times, The Other Side of the Wind is “a skewering of avant-garde directors…conceptualized by Welles as a type of collage.
As proven by his work in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, Chris Pratt is very good at being funny. In the above behind-the-scenes clip from the home release, Pratt shows off his boogie-woogie moves for costar Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the Passengers crew during the filming of the dance scene. What’s undeniable is that Pratt and Lawrence had a great time making Passengers, as confirmed by both the above clip, this previous blooper reel, and their many charming joint interviews.
The international trailer for the upcoming drama A Family Man (watch exclusively above) opens with a familiar setup: Gerard Butler is a Dane Jensen, a hotshot headhunter (“the purest form of salesman,” he boasts) too busy for his wife (Gretchen Mol) and kids. He’s in the running for a promotion, too, though boss (Willem Dafoe) says it will come down to Dane or his rival (Alison Brie).
The 2017 movie season kicked into a higher gear last week with the release of Logan, and it’s set to explode with this Friday’s debut of Kong: Skull Island, a new take on the movies’ classic giant ape that’s also intended to help push Warner Bros. and Legendary Films’ ongoing MonsterVerse (which began with 2014’s Godzilla) into overdrive. While it boasts an impressive cast including Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, and John C. Reilly, Skull Island’s main attraction is unquestionably its title character. In the featurette, cast and crew members expound on their 100 foot tall “castmate.” He’s “truly monstrous in size and scale and scope,” says star Hiddleston, who describes Kong as “a force of nature.
During Beauty and the Beast‘s lengthy, celebrated run on Broadway, one moment always guaranteed big laughs: the Beast is attempting to invite Belle to dinner, but he knows no way to do it other than in a brash, abrasive, uninviting manner. Trying to help are his faithful servants, who instruct him to be gentler … and even try a smile. It doesn’t go well.

How far did Moana go from the initial drawing-board version? With the Oscar-contending animated hit heading home (the Digital HD version arrives Tuesday while the Blu-ray/DVD hits shelves on March 7), Yahoo Movies has an exclusive deleted scene (watch it above) that shows how the title heroine evolved as a character. As they set up the clip, directors Ron Clements (the one with the beard) and John Musker reveal where it originally had fit in the film.
There may be no bigger film headed our way — at least in terms of the sheer size of its main character — than Kong: Skull Island, opening March 10. The brand-new take on the famed movie ape will see Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, and more heading to the creature’s homeland and finding a world of gargantuan trouble. Ahead of its theatrical debut, we have an exclusive clip from the film, in which two of its marquee stars have a heart-to-heart about the true nature of their supernatural circumstances.
There’s a lot of chemistry, and no “spaghetti arms,” in this rare footage of Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey’s Dirty Dancing screen test. This Yahoo Movies exclusive clip, taken from a new featurette on the 30th anniversary Dirty Dancing Blu-Ray, shows the two stars getting to know each other as they work through some dance steps. Swayze, an experienced ballet dancer by the time he made the film, instructs Grey to lift her chest so he doesn’t hurt her ribs. “It hurts my ribs,” she replies, giggling, as Swayze gently puts her down.
The suit worn by Robin, Batman’s longtime sidekick, was inspired by vintage illustrations of Robin Hood. At least, according to co-creator Jerry Robinson — you know, if you want to take his word for it. In the upcoming The Lego Batman Movie, the mythology behind the Boy Wonder’s costume gets turned inside out, and you can take a look in the exclusive clip above.
Iceland has a scant 323,000 residents — or just a shade more than half the people in Wyoming, the U.S.’s least populous state. But, in the film Bokeh, when an American couple vacationing on the island nation wake up one morning, the population has decreased to zero. Zilch. Nada

The new Nicolas Cage thriller Army of One has earned plenty of attention for its bonkers-sounding premise: Cage plays an unemployed handyman who receives a message from God (in the form of Russell Brand) that it’s his duty to capture Osama Bin Laden.
Don’t Breathe is one of the year’s best horror films — and, also, one of its most profitable. The Fede Alvarez-directed thriller, which was made for a reported $10 million, has grossed an impressive $151.4 million globally. Genre fans who didn’t catch it in theaters will get another opportunity to experience its anxious action — about three kids who try to rob a blind man in his home, only to learn that he’s far from a powerless victim — when it debuts on digital HD on Tuesday and on DVD and Blu-ray later this month. ...
