Johnny Knoxville is REALLY looking forward to you grabbing a copy. “We had so much hilarious footage that we had to cut for various reasons, so I’m psyched that people are going to get to see everything, especially when it’s unrated and on Blu-ray. Woohoo!! Plus I think fans will get a kick out of seeing how we pulled off some of the pranks in the behind-the-scenes footage. As Irving would say, ‘The show’s not over until I hogwrench the fat lady’s spatooly.'”

Blu-Ray Combo Pack will come with an Unrated Cut with more footage, along with the regular theatrical version. The set also features over an hour of behind-the-scenes content, deleted scenes and alternate reactions from real people.  If you get the single-disc DVD there are NO special features.

Robert Downey Jr. accepts the People’s Choice Award

The People’s Choice Awards were live on CBS last night it look 90 minutes to get our first NC Film winner.  Robert Downey Jr. won for Favorite Action Movie Star and Iron Man 3 took the award for Favorite Action Movie.  Downey stole everyone’s attention with his lovable self.  He asked for some reverb, a spotlight, then some triumphant music.  With all three wishes granted, he proclaimed in a deep voice, “I am Iron Man.” He then raised his award and shouted, “and this is for the people!”  Awesome! Also, it wasn’t included in the live award show, but we can tell you Homeland nabbed a PCA for Favorite Premium Cable TV Show.

IM3Before the PCA’s on Wednesday, the BAFTA nominations came out.  Although ‘Gravity’ leads the British nominations with 11, NC Film is getting a little love from across the pond.  Iron Man 3 was nominated for Best Special Visual Effects.  Here is Stark’s competition:
