What Would It Take for Paul Feig to Make a ‘Bridesmaids’ Sequel?

Bridesmaids was a knockout comedy hit in 2011, raking in over $169 million domestically and another $119.2 million internationally, which is pretty damn good for an R-rated romantic comedy. That kind of success and the warm reception from both critics and audiences has resulted in some demand for a sequel over the years. But while director Paul Feig appreciates the love for the movie from fans, he’s not necessarily too keen on putting one together just for the hell of it, and he has a good reas...

‘John Wick 4’, ‘Spiral’, and More Lionsgate Movies Get New Release Dates

Just the other day we ran a story stating that John Wick Chapter 4 was all but guaranteed to move from its May 21, 2021 release. Sure enough, Lionsgate just shuffled a whole bunch of upcoming release dates, and John Wick 4 was one of them. The Keanu Reeves sequel won’t arrive in theaters now until 2022. Spiral, the Saw reboot starring Chris Rock, is also moving – from this year to 2021. The coronavirus isn’t just interfering with films from this year, it’s having a ripple effect with films w...

The 10 Funniest Performers of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) Choosing the top ten funniest performers of the 2010s was not easy. If there’s one thing to know about comedy, it’s that it is subjective. What’s funny to one person may not be funny to someone else. One thing I took into account while making this list is how reliable these performers were over the past decade. Did they have stand-out moments in one film or in multiple films over the years? How should a late bloomer be evaluated? If someo...

The 15 Funniest Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) When considering the best in cinema, it can be easy to overlook the movies that go out of their way to make us crack up. For whatever reason, comedy never seems as significant or important as comedy. But if we didn’t laugh, there’d be nothing to pick us up from those sad moments. So as part of our look back at the decade that was 2010 through 2019, I wanted to make sure we singled out the funniest movies of the year. No, I’m not just pick...

Disney and WarnerMedia May Pull Productions Out of Georgia If Abortion Law Passes [Updated]

Update: In a statement to Deadline, WarnerMedia has also said it will consider pulling its productions from the state of Georgia. Read the company’s statement below. Our original article follows. We operate and produce work in many states and within several countries at any given time and while that doesn’t mean we agree with every position taken by a state or a country and their leaders, we do respect due process.

Bob Iger Strongly Suggests Disney May Pull Production in Georgia if Abortion Law Passes

Disney may halt production of its films and TV shows in Georgia if the state enacts its controversial abortion law, Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger said. A ban on abortion that Georgia’s Republican governor signed into law earlier this month has been cause for much uproar in the film industry, which has flocked to the state for an enticing tax credit offered to film and TV productions. But the abortion ban, which is due to take effect on January 1 if it survives court challenges, has caused se...

‘Booksmart’ Screenwriter Katie Silberman on Crafting a Unique High School Movie and the New Wave of Romantic Comedies [Interview]

When I first watched Booksmart during its world premiere at SXSW, I fell in love with this high school comedy in an instant. When we talk about the films that we wished we had while growing up, this is one of them. It feels like an instant classic. Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein are both phenomenal in the film and I couldn’t stop laughing at every ridiculous and wonderful joke. Booksmart screenwriter Katie Silberman spoke with /Film over the phone this week to discuss the writing process as...

Red Letter Media Takes Down and Breaks Down the ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot

It’s kind of amazing that Mike Stoklasa‘s creation of RedLetterMedia and the character of Harry S. Plinkett has lasted so long after first finding viral fame for a seven-part takedown of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace back in 2009. But the internet is full of plenty of wackier things, and despite the fact that this character is supremely annoying to listen to, his video reviews do make plenty of valid points, even if they are combined with some really lame attempts at humor. While Star Wars has ...

Bad Moms Blu-Ray Giveaway!

Bad Moms was quite the surprise hit this year, not because there was necessarily any doubt that Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn had the potential for a wonderful, comedic ride, but because the year had so many disappointments. Not only a brazen comedy that sets “normal” moms against the classic “mean moms” that create and then assume their status from shiny perfection, the film also takes a look at a variety of other social frustrations facing women today, who shockingly don’t want to...

The hit movie has become somewhat of a beacon of hope for female writers and actresses wanting to show the industry that women-led comedies can succeed and, more importantly, that girls are funny.
