The Gushing Cinephile: July 8, 2013


Well, to say that this was a slow week in the world of film would be a serious understatement. It was Independence Day in the United States. In other news that surprised no one, Disney’s “The Lone Ranger” flopped harder than a fish fighting for it’s life on dry land.┬áLet’s just get to it!

First up, check out the header image and it’ll be sure to put a smile on your face and a dent in your wallet. Set for release on September 24, 2013, Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy finally gets an Ultimate Collector’s Edition. The six-disc set will feature all three full-length features (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises) with their original special features, and two brand new featurettes (The Fire Rises: The Creation and Impact of The Dark Knight Trilogy, Christopher Nolan & Richard Donner: A Conversation). In addition, the set will include Premium Mattel Hot Wheel Vehicles of the Tumbler, Batpod, and the Bat, as well as a 48 page hardcover book featuring production stills and behind the scenes images. However, if this collection of Batman decadence catches your eye, you will have to pay dearly for it as this Ultimate Collector’s Edition is priced at roughly $100.


Next, the soundtrack for Joel and Ethan Coen’s “Inside Llewyn Davis” finally gets a release date, September 17, 2013. If you’ve seen the trailers, you know how epic the film looks and how incredible the soundtrack appears to be. The soundtrack will feature songs performed by cast members Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan, and more. I’m really looking forward to this.


Up next, in my opinion, the best film of 2013 so far, “Mud” gets a surprising Blu-ray and DVD release date, August 6, 2013. If you’ve yet to check this one out, pick-up a copy or watch it on demand, you won’t be disappointed, I promise.


Next up, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon are reuniting once again with director Michael Winterbottom for a sequel to 2010′s most underrated film “The Trip.” The film is currently titled “The Trip to Italy” and is already underway. Having been picked up already by IFC Films for US distribution, “The Trip to Italy” should be set for release sometime in 2014.

Finally, check out this viral video for “Pacific Rim” starring Ron Perlman. I am hugely excited to check out “Pacific Rim” on Thursday, but to be honest, I am still a tad skeptical. However, this video does give me hope that Guillermo Del Toro’s big-budget blockbuster won’t be a bust.

That’ll do it for this edition of The Gushing Cinephile. Everyone have a great week and look forward to a few awesome reviews I have scheduled to post this week!

  1. 100 bones for some Batman DVDs, huh?? Sounds a little pricy for me : )

    • Yeah, I don’t think I’ll be picking that up. I already own the trilogy in steelbook form and I love it. Of course, I say this now and I’ll probably be first in line to pick up the UCE :) .

  2. VERY cool post this week. Can’t see the video because i’m at work, though.

    I so want that Dark Knight set! I’ll happily fork over the 100 bucks (I think; lol). Really looking forward to Inside Llewyn Davis (love the cast and the Coens) and Mud (which I haven’t seen yet!).

    The Trip to Italy sounds fun but I haven’t seen the first one yet, either!

  3. I was surprised The Lone Ranger flopped so badly. Inside Llewyn Davis is my most anticipated film of the year and I will definitely be ordering the soundtrack.

  4. A sequel to The Trip!? Yes please!! And if you haven’t.. you should sign up for my Secret Santa event!

  5. I need to pay closer attention to the Cohens. Ashamed to say I didn’t even know about their new movie.

    I can’t wait to see Mud. Missed it in the theater.

  6. Looking forward to Mud on Blu-ray in August since I missed it in the theatres.

  7. Well I know where a $100 of my checking account is going in September. I am suuuuuuuuuuuuch a sucker for shit like that. Can’t wait for Mud either having missed it at the cinema like a fool
