See The Cool Making Of OUTLANDER Featurette That Isn't On U.S. DVDs!!

Merrick here...
...with a look at a featurette about the making of OUTLANDER, which hit DVD here in The States last week. Given that the film received embarrassingly limited (and remarkably unmotivated) distribution in the U.S., OUTLANDER's debut on video marks the first time American audiences en masse can get a look at this elusive gem of a film. What makes the material below super cool is that 1) it's about OUTLANDER, and 2) this "making of" does not appear on the American issue of the DVD. It will, however, be seen when the DVD/Blu-Ray of the film is released in the UK (in early September, if memory serves). So, through the embeds below, folks on our side of the pond are glimpsing material they may never see otherwise - and UK readers are getting a significantly early look at a feature that'll be on their upcoming DVDs and Blu-Rays. As mentioned above, the standard DVD of OUTLANDER was released in the U.S. last week. It should also be noted that (at present) there are no plans for a Blu-Ray release of the film here in the States. HOWEVER, OUTLANDER is rentable via XBOX Live, where it is offered in 720p. Unless you import the UK Blu-Ray in September, XBOX Live may be your best bet to see the film in HD. The standard DVD of OUTLANDER is also available for rent via all the usual suspects (including Netflix), and can be purchased HERE. On to the "Making of..." This featurette was assembled by OUTLANDER's editor, David Dodson, in two days...and for there would be some record of the film's creation for posterity (there wasn't enough money in the film's budget to accommodate EPKs, etc.) I'm told that, as director Howard McCain's on-screen interviews were being conducted, the set representing the film's elaborate Viking compound was in immediate danger of being flooded by a rising river. Talk about a poker face... If you haven't checked out this film yet, and if your heart pulses with any amount of Geeky blood whatsoever, see this movie. Moriarty/Drew pleaded for a broader theatrical release of the project a while back (HERE, I've done a few pieces on it myself HERE is one of them), and Harry was just Twittering about it last week. It's far from perfect and is sometimes betrayed by the limitations of its resources, but it's a smart, fun adventure by way of solid action, earnest performances - all hinged on pretty decent Science Fiction. Here are the embeds...ENJOY! I love the Ron Perlman interview on Part 3, and John Hurt's poultry moment on the same...

    it'll be on the UK DVDs but not the US DVDs? It's hard to tell.

    by skiff

    I found it funny I never heard of this film till It hit the video store.

  • May 28, 2009, 9:24 a.m. CST

    (My post was referring to the double title- now edited)

    by seppukudkurosawa

    But considering I left out the word "what" in my post, I can't really quibble about little fuck ups.

  • May 28, 2009, 9:38 a.m. CST


    by Underoos Hero

    I totally appreciate the vision and all of the work that goes into films like these and that's why it's even extra sad that it turned out to be lame. The monster design took me back to all of those poor 90's cgi creature designs such as the one in "Relic" for example. Way too much crap going on in the design. The story itself is typical of anything you've seen before in this film genre. All in all this felt, looked, and acted out like a big budget "SciFi Channel" original movie. 4 out of 10 for a few "pretty" sequences.

  • May 28, 2009, 9:53 a.m. CST

    Amazon Canada

    by casinoskunk

    Has the blu-ray. hope this feature is on that version as well.

  • May 28, 2009, 9:53 a.m. CST

    so they are still screwin over this movie?


    or still screwing over america in regards to this movie? jeezus.

  • May 28, 2009, 10:03 a.m. CST

    HA ron perlman's input was hilarious...


    the first jewish viking.....hey how's it goin'. probably my favorite character i've ever played (seriously?)...they talk about me for 62 pages, hen i finally show up, i'm in the script for 7, then i disappear and they talk about me for the rest of the movie.....i'm sorry what was the question.

  • May 28, 2009, 10:07 a.m. CST

    Samuel Witwer and James Caviezel


    should play brothers in some epic sci-fi action movie. that would be good casting. somebody get on that.

    Canadian Blu-Ray is *CROPPED*

    by TheAD

    Beware if you want to import the Canadian Blu-Ray of Outlander. Alliance cropped it to 1.78:1 from 2.35:1. If the cropped image were actually 16 inches by 9 inches that means you would be missing about five and a quarter inches of the picture's width. <p>All the features of the US release are on the disk though which is good. And the picture sound quality is great other than being cropped.

  • May 28, 2009, 10:11 a.m. CST

    Which is a good version to get?

    by casinoskunk

    On Blu-ray?? i dont want a cropped version!

  • May 28, 2009, 10:25 a.m. CST

    Good movie

    by staticneuron

    I caught it on the Playstation network video store, where it is also available in HD. I don't remember any advertising about the film but I took the chance anyway. I am glad I did because I enjoyed the movie more than I thought I would.

  • May 28, 2009, 10:25 a.m. CST

    Thanks for the great clips!

    by ChezKing

    Love this movie. Have it and watch it often. It is unfortunate this movie didn't get the release and success it deserves. It will become a major cult classic.

  • May 28, 2009, 10:42 a.m. CST

    I can't wait to see this!

    by brokentusk

    The idea alone guarantees a watch, but that cast... I'm beyond sold.

  • May 28, 2009, 10:45 a.m. CST

    On another note, how awesome is John Hurt?

    by brokentusk

    I just thought it had to be said. The man is an elderly, respected actor, yet he just loves genre material. I guess what I'm trying to say is... I wish he was my grandather. <p> Anyone else think he'd be an ideal actor to cast in THE HOBBIT? Not sure what role he'd be suited for, but he'd fit into Middle-earth like a glove.

  • May 28, 2009, 10:48 a.m. CST

    Smart money says they're gonna re-boot with Will Smith!

    Outlander was good...

    by MisterNobody

    I have to say it reminded me of an old school mythical movie with a good script. If it had been made thirty years ago I would have expected to see Ray Harryhausen doing the creature effects.

  • May 28, 2009, 11:11 a.m. CST

    I wanted to like this movie

    by JohnRyder

    but couldn't. The ideas were great, but the direction is not so good (very bad) I watched it because they praised at this site, something I should stop doing. Not to mention the Burrowers.

  • May 28, 2009, 11:36 a.m. CST

    Why was this film so criminally undersold?

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    I haven't even seen it yet, but I want to. It's got a great cast and a cool story, but it didn't play here theatrically and almost no one here is carrying the dvd. Target didn't get it. Best Buy got one copy and sold it first thing in the morning and hasn't bothered to restock it. Can original stories no longer be marketed to or tolerated by the mainstream movie going public?

  • May 28, 2009, 11:47 a.m. CST

    JohnRyder, this site tries hard to promote films like this.

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    The one thing this site does extrememly well is shine a light on little movies that someone here thinks are cool and deserve to be seen by more people. They can't really affect the number of people bound to see "Terminator: Salvation" or "Transformers 2." But they can offer worthy alternatives. Thanks to AICN, I sought out movies like "Ginger Snaps" and "Bubba Hotep." "The Burrowers" isn't a big Hollywood blockbuster, but it's kind of cool on it's own level. I don't always agree with their choices, but that's par for the course. For example, this site has promoted the hell out of "The Brothers Bloom" which I saw at Fantastic Fest and just thought was "okay" and have nearly forgotten about. But when they find something really cool, like "Time Crimes," which is one the best films I've ever seen dealing with time travel, it's all worth it.

    I was IN Outlander - and yep, there was a flood

    by jimdorey

    Hey guys - I was actually a BG actor in OUTLANDER - played a Viking as well as one of Gunnar's (Perlman) men. Awesome set! And yes, there was a river rising and plenty of rain. The crew had to drop straw EVERYWHERE to keep an appearance of dryness to the soggy set. Gorgeous area though. Nova Scotia, Canada.

  • May 28, 2009, 11:55 a.m. CST

    The Reluctant Austinite

    by JohnRyder

    Guess you are right. But somebody should really tell the director that there is a reason his movie isn't a bigger hit. And it is not (just) money.

  • May 28, 2009, 11:57 a.m. CST

    Well, AICN didn't do much to promote the film, did it?

    by D.Vader

    Less than a handful of stories here and there. Which is a shame. AICN could have, and SHOULD have, done more to get the word out about this film.

  • May 28, 2009, 12:08 p.m. CST

    excellent thank you

    by Genre_Baby

    I've got this dvd on order, the film wasn't playing anywhere near me in January, so I can't wait. Thanks for posting these Making ofs, Merrick.

    The Reluctant Austinite

    by brokentusk

    I'm with you on TIME CRIMES, although I didn't quite think it was one of the best time travel films of all time (a lot of stuff happens merely to move the plot along, which is a tad annoying). However, I watched THE FOOT FIST WAY the other night – solely because of AICN's pimping – and I was not disappointed in the least. Same with THE KING OF KONG, great documentary, if a little too… manipulated. <p> Always nice when this site tries to shine a light on little-seen gems, even if I don’t always think the films are worthy of the praise.

  • May 28, 2009, 12:36 p.m. CST


    by uberman

    I just saw it based on the glowing reviews here. What I saw was some terrible dialoge, bad acting, grade C- CGI, and the requirement of total suspension of disbelief for the 'World underneath the well' which, incidentally, included a 1000 ft cliff dropping into the Atlantic Ocean-all just under that iddy bitty well. Skip it and rent THE RELIC instead if you want a great monster movie.

  • May 28, 2009, 12:39 p.m. CST



    Sadly we tried. I tried to get the film for FANTASTIC FEST and the Weinsteins wouldn't let us have it. The big problem is the PR department that the Weinsteins have didn't do anything for this film. As a result, no talent was available to do interviews. No stills were being released. I talked with the director about personally showing it to Moriarty, which he did and we ran that story, but there was no interview because there were no projected release dates. This film was killed by the Weinsteins. And it was a fucking crime!

  • May 28, 2009, 12:47 p.m. CST

    are massive cunts. they remind me of those jewish aliens in southpark

  • May 28, 2009, 12:54 p.m. CST

    This is a terrible movie

    by pip1345

    I watched it last night. The direction is particularly suspect. But then, so is the acting, the story, and everything else. (There's a definite Lord of the Rings vibe going on here, but in a rip-offy sort of way.) The one thing that's good is the base concept--spaceman crashlands in Viking times to fight space alien with the Vikings--but after five minutes, that shit spoils fast, too. I was so bored I started fast forwarding, and I never fucking do that. One last thing: Why do these Norwegians have Victorian English accents? Terrible. Just terrible.

  • May 28, 2009, 1:12 p.m. CST

    The Weinsteins wouldn't let you show it at FantasticFest?

    by D.Vader

    What the fuck is wrong with those guys? Did they think no exposure was good exposure? Sheesh, it boggles the mind...

  • May 28, 2009, 2 p.m. CST

    Give me a break. (spoiler)

    by Dkev00

    This movie sucked ass. It's definitely a direct to video affair. Harry, you hated T4 but you liked this piece of shit? I guess I shouldn't be surprised. We gotta kill the shitty CGI monster! We killed him! Ah shit it was just a bear.

    Why do studios kill some movies?

    by snowpuff

    Headgeek speaks the truth. Sometimes studios seem hellbent on killing a movie. Sounds like personal politics to me...

  • May 28, 2009, 3:51 p.m. CST

    Seen it. Loved it. It's the untold tale of Beowulf.

    by AnakinsDiapers

    It's obviously a low budget affair, but what cash they had was spent well. It's not everyones cup of tea, and that's fine, but what i can't get behind is complaints about bad acting. Really? Look at that cast. I think not.

  • May 28, 2009, 3:52 p.m. CST

    this would not be the first time. sounds like they are punishing someone. why on earth would you punish someone you hired if it actually meant you could stand to lose money by it? i thought money was hollywood's god, not petty drama.

  • May 28, 2009, 4:54 p.m. CST

    This is the lowest common denominator in entertainment.

    by namasteandgoodluck

    This movie was absolute, pure, unadulterated bloody excrement. The first 15 minutes actually made my head hurt.When the lead actor ( a character I was so disinterested in, I don;'t even know his fucking name)crashed into that river or creek or fucking faux fjord I thought I was watching that Tim Burton Planet of the apes movie.The money spent on this movie would have been better spent donating it to charity, or helping a few schools pay for books...hell, it would have been better spent if you'd just shit all over it and flushed it down the toilet, never to see a return on initial investments. Hey Harry, how much did they pay you to hype this piece of shit up? AICN gets worse and worse everytime I come back to the site; you fuckers may as well start posting about bootleg bollywood dvd's you copped at the weekend flea market.

  • May 28, 2009, 4:57 p.m. CST

    Watch the first minute of the third clip...

    by -guyinthebackrow

    Ron Perelman obviously thought this movie was terrible. Brilliance!

    Not to mention....

    by namasteandgoodluck

    ...this hunk of shit has been out forever. How is this news? How about you post something else arbitrary like production stills from "Men in Black 2" or maybe the trailer for "A Nightmare on Elm St 3: Dream Warriors' in "glorious quicktime" (it's a fucking retarded catchphrase...quicktime is hardly fucking glorious and you sound like you are on quicktimes nuts so much, you are on their dick) would be more pertinent and much more entertaining.

  • May 28, 2009, 5:08 p.m. CST

    agreed- catchphrases


    'glorious quicktime''inviso-text' etc are all beyond dead.<P>but then again this site has remained unchanged, format wise, ever since this background was added with 'the magic of html' back when indepenence day came out.

    as always the most talked about scene is the most useless

    by Knugen

    the viking equivalent of "the burly brawl" - tons of effort with stunt work for an utterly pointless set up scene for completely redundant action sequence - and yes I'm talking about the FUCKING SHIELD DANCE. Also the kid sucked balls. This boils my viking blood!

    What I love about this movie

    by Series 7

    Besides everything, is the fact that it shows that John Hurt is actually still alive. For the longest time I thought movie makers where just pulling a Weekend at Bernies with his corpse.

  • May 28, 2009, 8:24 p.m. CST

    I pray to God this doesn't happen to "Solomon Kane"

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    At least the film makers let Harry and Quint see "Solomon Kane." I hope they're allowed to write about it soon. I would hate to wait another two years only to have that film released on dvd to the sound of silence.

    The Disease Known As The Weinsteins


    The Weinsteins are complete and utter boil-infested assholes. You want OUTLANDER. I bought this movie sight unseen last week and I think it is one helluva good flick. The fact that its promotion and release was butffucked by the Weinsteins proves that they wouldn't know a good movie if it rann up and kicked their miserable asses. This is a good movie that deserves to be go out of your way to see it. Fuck renting it...BUT IT! It's THAT good!!!

  • May 28, 2009, 11:32 p.m. CST

    BUT IT!

    by Series 7

    Hahahahaha, fucking no edit button. True is right though, but I don't think it has anything to do about knowing a good movie. I think its about how much does a director suck up to the Weinsteins, or how much they like a certain director. I mean look at Kevin Smith, he gets full distributing for his films and he has never had a box office smash.

  • May 29, 2009, 12:48 a.m. CST

    I really liked this movie quite a bit.

    by The_Genteel_Gentile

    It's like a wicked hybrid of 13th Warrior and Predator, except without the brilliant direction of John Mctiernan. Still a solid flick though, very entertaining and surprisingly well made all things considered. Geoff Zanelli provides what is easily the best, most rousing musical score of any film I've seen this year. The creature design is pretty awesome, and the FX used to created it are, for the most part, believible (impressively so in one scene specifically). The script is rather good and the actors all give admirable performances without any cringe inducing to be had. It's budget limitations are probably the main culprit of some of Outlanders more pedestrian qualities, but it still manages to spin a good yarn rather proficiently. It's easily a hundred times better than Pathfinder. Anyone who dug Beowulf, would likely get a kick out of Outlander. I just wish the Weinsteins hadn't deliberately gone about actively sabotaging it's potential from the outset. Nevertheless, I'd call Outlander an outright success despite all obstacles. Do not be dissuaded by the naysayers, outlander is some pure old fashioned fun (not in a kitschy or camp way either). Treat yourselves to this movie, it deserves to be seen and enjoyed. Oh, and Jim Caviezel for Clark Kent/Superman!

    by Tom Cullen

    So Merrick continues to do nothing on this site other than arbitrarily breach copyright with every single non-story that he posts. <p>In other not very surprising news, Outlander was in fact a damn fun and sadly underappreciated film. Long may it live on shiny disc.

    by Lost Jarv

    I'm getting bored of repeating myself over this. Too little too late. <P>Don't make out that you really tried to promote this film, Harry- you didn't. There was the Mori letter and that was it- you didn't even review it when you saw it (which was ages before it was released in the UK). <P>Sure, the Weinsteins killed it, but you hardly threw it a funeral. Where was the outcry? We were banging on about this from the moment we first heard about it- and for about 6 months it was only about 10 TB'ers that seemed to give a shit about it.

    by Furan

    by Laserhead

    Not a bold new innovation in filmaking or anything, but an incredibly solid and enjoyable piece of genre work; and it's obvious in every frame and piece of FX that somebody put a lot of love into this film.<p>And then the Shitty Bros., who can't manufacture a hit to save their lives anymore, killed it.

  • May 29, 2009, 6:33 a.m. CST

    Watched it last night.

    by superfleish76

    It was a decent movie. Funny how expectations can alter people's perception of things. If this had been a big budget movie, all the people that are praising it would be calling it average. That said, it probably had more story and decent acting than GIJoe and Revenge of the Fallen combined, are likely to display. Not a great film, but better than it had a right to be. I really wanted a fight between Jesus and Hellboy, though.

  • May 29, 2009, 8:08 a.m. CST

    Ah. The WHO specials.

    by spud mcspud

    Yep - after being dazzled with the originality of the last one, I'm waiting with baited breath to see how RTD can possibly fuck this show any further. Tennant deserves FAR more to end his tenure than the lukewarm rehashed bollocks we've been fed thus far.<P> Unlike most TBers, however, I really like Michelle Ryan as an actress (though I admit Lil Spud may be overruling my finer critical faculties there) and enjoyed BIONIC WOMAN in the first few eps, before it became a fucking soap opera with SF overtones. I think she's great - so WHY WASTE HER IN THAT SPECIAL?!?<P> GAAAAHHH!!! That FUCKING RUSSELL T DAVIES!!! If there were any justice (which there isn't given that this is the fucking Beeb we're talking about) he'd be kept away from anything - ANYTHING! - to do with the Whoverse from here on in. But he won't. FUUUUUCK!<P> Just mad, bad and very very sad. Roll on the Moff!<P> (For the mods, back on topic: fucking SEPTEMBER for an OUTLANDER DVD release? What is this, 1993?)

    Outlander was good.

    <p>I don't know about you guys, but I went into this film with pretty high expectations, considering how much praise it was getting on AICN. And those expectations were met. Though I do realize that it certainly wasn't a perfect film, it's exactly what it advertised itself to be--an entertaining Predator-like monster-hunt romp with a spaceman and Vikings.</p> <p>And truth be told, It was really good. It's no Shakespeare, but it was definitely worth the watch, and I'd certainly recommend it to those who're even slightly curious about the movie.</p>

    I got to see it in theaters

    by Series 7

    Though it was Rated R, it was only showing at 12:50 and 2:55. The same theater had 10PM showings of Paul Blart:MC, Hotel For Dawgs, The Unaborted and Twilight though. Seriously what the fuck. But a couple weeks later the owner of the theater rented out a copy of Conan, so I guess he's got a thing for viking style flicks. It was weird that they could rent out random movies because it was a Regal, and they are usually the crappiest of the crap.

    Cinematic release in Europe

    Saw this one on the silver screen right here in Stockholm, Sweden. It was a really good bad movie, if you know what I mean.

    Jarv - RTD on the new Doctor

    by spud mcspud

    Apparently according to Yahoo news today, RTD wanted personality vacuum Russell Tovey (the blank-eyed pilot of Starship Titanic in that fucking Kylie Xmas Special fiasco, and the werewolf in PC smugfest BEING HUMAN) to be the new Doctor.<P> Thankfully, the Beeb saw sense and went with the Moff's choice of Matt Smith. Ye Gods, RTD just can't stop fucking the corpse of that once-great show, can he?

    Dark Shite - Who movie

    by spud mcspud

    I'm up for that. You could set it after season 4 (just after Donna Noble's exit) and have him travelling alone for a bit. I'd truly LOVE to see a Time War movie, and it wouldn't be hard to put Tennant alongside Paul McGann's Doc for a two-hander that opens the way for a movie trilogy - that would then end with McGann regenerating into Eccleston, and possibly give us some cool new villains, like ST: TNG did with the Borg.<P> But no, RTD will write it, it'll become some preachy soapbox PC-obssessed fucking public service announcement dressed up as a Doctor Who movie, and it wil create a Maelstrom of Suck the likes of which no-one has EVER FUCKING SEEN. Did Tennant not learn from the last few years?!?!?
