Back in May, the Super Mario Bros. The Movie Archive came across a tape containing an extended rough cut of the infamous 1993 film. Nearly 15 minutes longer than what was shown in theaters, it includes new and extended scenes.

The first clip from the extended cut has now come online. It takes place during the first act as Mario and Luigi are still working in Brooklyn. They take on a job at the Riverfront Cafe and encounter the Scapelli plumbers, Doug and Mike. This is different from what viewers originally saw, as when Mario and Luigi get there, a Scapelli van is already on the scene and the action then quickly cuts to Daisy at the Digsite.

IGN has shared an official behind the scenes clip for the Pokemon Detective Pikachu movie. Reynolds talks about his role, and other members of the cast also weigh in. You can watch the short video below.

After a negative reaction to Sonic’s design in the upcoming movie, it was announced that the character would be going through a bit of a makeover. The decision also prompted the film to be delayed into February of next year.

Tim Miller, an executive producer on the Sonic movie, spoke about the entire experience in an interview with Variety. Miller shared the following about the reaction and going through with the redesign:

Update: Reports had surfaced that the name of the movie was Pokemon with You, but this appears to be incorrect. We’ll let you know if we receive an official title from The Pokemon Company.


Original: A special screening for Pokemon the Movie: Mewtwo Strikes Back was held at Anime Expo 2019 today. At the event, a teaser was shown for the next film in the franchise.

Fans can look forward to the movie in 2020. The teaser showed Pikachu sliding down a vine in a forest, but that’s about all. CG visuals will not be used this time around, and will be more of a return to form.

Stay tuned for further information about the upcoming movie the future.

Monster Hunter has a brand new movie coming next year. Although we’ve yet to see much from it, a trailer did leak online not too long ago.

In an interview with Bahamut, long-time Monster Hunter developer Kaname Fujioka, who has directed the series and served other roles, was asked about the film. He said that the team “did discuss with the director and CG production team many times” and ultimately believes “the final result should probably satisfy players.” Fujioka also noted how he and other staffers at Capcom feel the director’s “respect” for the IP.

Following its run in theaters, Pokemon Detective Pikachu will soon be more widely available through other platforms. It was announced today that the film will be distributed digitally on July 23. Then on August 6, the Blu-ray will be releasing.

Amazon is taking pre-orders for the Blu-ray here. Best Buy also has an exclusive version here.
