‘Jay and Silent Bob Reboot’ Production Diaries: Five Dollar Fridays and the Girl Gang in Chapters 6 and 7

Remember when Peter Jackson gave fans an unprecedented look behind the scenes at the making of King Kong with his online production diaries?

‘Extra Ordinary’ Review: A Sweet Irish Rom-Com With Paranormal Activity [SXSW]

Mike Ahern and Edna Loughman ’s Extra Ordinary comes together as the tonal lovechild of Jared Hess and Taika Waititi , playfully mocking horror beats instead of unleashing them. It’s more a cutesy rom-com with expelled ectoplasm goo than completionist horror dive into Drag Me To Hell territory, but when subdued haunting gags land, laughs project with ease. Expect dry Irish wit, flamboyant musicians selling their souls for another hit record, and home appliances that wave at you. Quite ...

Team Sonic Racing Animation Vibrantly Charming

An astounding new Sonic animation has emerged courtesy of Tyson Hesse (who led the creation of Sonic Mania’s animated cutscenes) and Neko Productions, this time advertising the upcoming “Team Sonic Racing” as various Sonic characters can be seen driving vehicles rather than sprinting fast like they usually do. The first of the 2-part “Team Sonic […]

Will ‘Once Upon a Time In Hollywood’ Follow ‘Inglourious Basterds’ and Change History?

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood trailer is here, and it’s a blast. The latest film from Quentin Tarantino is a star-studded affair, and based on this trailer, it’s going to lean heavily into comedy. That may seem like an odd choice, since the film features both Charles Manson and Sharon Tate, one of the victims of the Manson Family. But I have a theory – a theory I’ve had for a while now, and one that I feel stronger about after watching the trailer. I think Tarantino is going to take the sam...

‘Game Night’ Directors Get ‘The Creeps’ at Universal, But What Does This Mean for ‘The Flash’?

Jonathan Goldstein (right) and John Francis Daley were behind last year’s outstanding comedic thriller Game Night, a movie that deserved far more recognition than it received. Since then, we’ve been waiting to see what’s going on with their take on The Flash, but it sounds like another project has the potential to get off the ground before then, and it will take them into a new genre. Deadline reports Universal Pictures has picked up a new comedic horror pitch called The Creeps from Jonathan ...

‘Shrill’ Review: Hulu’s New Series is More Than Just a Plus-Size Comedy

While staring at an exercise advertisement in a coffee shop, Annie (Aidy Bryant) is confronted by “Toned Tonya,” the woman pictured in the ad. She speaks to Annie in a condescending manner, talking about her weight as if it’s a burden of some sort. “There’s a small person inside of you, dying to get out!” Tonya says with enthusiasm (and unknowing disrespect). Annie’s weight (and the conversation surrounding it) is something that many plus-size women experience. The first two episodes of Hul...

‘Detective Pikachu’ is Getting an Official Graphic Novel Adaptation

Detective Pikachu has come so far since the video game first debuted in 2016: it’s gone from a popular video game to one of the most anticipated feature films of 2019.

‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ Sequel Short Adds Lily James and Alicia Vikander

Toward the end of last year, we learned that a Four Weddings and a Funeral sequel was being planned as a short film to support the charitable Red Nose Day campaign. Writer Richard Curtis is back to script the sequel, and Mike Newell will be directing again, too. But let’s be honest, it’s the returning cast you’re excited to see after 25 years. And while pretty much everyone from the original movie will be back, there are a couple of new cast members getting in on the fun. Baby Driver star Lily ...

‘Saturday Night Live’ Taps a Golden Globe Winner, an Oscar Nominee and a ‘Game of Thrones’ Star as Hosts

Saturday Night Live is taking a short break between new episodes, but when the late night sketch comedy returns at the end of the month, they’ll be churning out three episodes in a row. After how great the recent back-to-back episodes hosted by John Mulaney and Idris Elba turned out to be, the pressure is on to keep the momentum going. Thankfully, the three upcoming Saturday Night Live hosts set for the spring are exciting prospects since two of them are stars of hit TV shows hosting for the fi...

‘Jay and Silent Bob Reboot’ Brings Back Shannon Elizabeth, Adds Wrestler Chris Jericho

Jay and Silent Reboot is shaping up to be a reunion of almost everyone that Kevin Smith has ever worked with. Not only are stars from the various View Askewniverse movies returning in this one, but cast members from Zack and Miri Make a Porno have made a comeback, too. Therefore it comes as no surprise that Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back star Shannon Elizabeth is back as Jay’s thief lover Justice. But there is one surprise that comes in the form of WWE wrestler Chris Jericho being part of the c...

‘One Day at a Time’ Cancelled By Netflix, But is Searching For Another Home [Updated]

‘Villains’ Review: Home is Where the Horrors Are in This Ferociously Funny Thriller [SXSW]

Dan Berk and Robert Olsen ’s Villains isn’t their first genre rodeo, and it shows. Their feature debut Body ignited their affair with home invasion horror, Stake Land II sucked some serious sequel blood, and their script for Don’t Kill It burst with howlin’ mad body-possession beats. So what makes Villains their most gratifyingly unstable and deliciously dark midnighter yet? Simplicity in casting: Bill Skarsgård and Maika Monroe . Maybe that’s my specific answer, but I’d watch ...

A ‘Forrest Gump’ Bollywood Remake Is In The Works – Could It Actually Work?

Forrest Gump is running over to India. The Tom Hanks-starring Oscar winner is getting a Hindi-language remake courtesy of Bollywood, following a long tradition of Hollywood movies that have gotten a Bollywood remake or knock-off. The Forrest Gump Bollywood remake will be titled Lal Singh Chadha and is set to star Indian superstar Aamir Khan. Like Forrest Gump’s famous catchphrase, you really don’t know what you’re gonna get in the world of movie news. In this case, it’s a Forrest Gump Bollyw...

‘One Day at a Time’ Cancelled By Netflix, But is Searching For Another Home

After three seasons, the Netflix series One Day at a Time has officially been cancelled by the streaming service. But this may not be the end of the road just yet: Sony Pictures Television, which produced the show, is planning to try to find a new home for it. One Day at a Time, a modern revamp of producer Normal Lear‘s show from the 1970s, has a passionate fanbase, and for good reason: it was one of the few shows that finished 2018 with a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But it seems as if th...

‘Stuber’ Work-In-Progress Screening: Put Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista In Everything, You Cowards [SXSW]

This isn’t quite a review, because what we saw at last night’s SXSW screening of Stuber wasn’t quite a finished film. But the work-in-progress print of Michael Dowse’s action buddy comedy felt finished enough to establish that stars Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani have the best possible comedic chemistry. Listen up, Oscars 2020. Nanjiani plays Stu, a fastidious Uber driver lovesick over his best friend (Betty Gilpin). Bautista is Vic, a detective who’s been zeroing in on a heroin dealer for...

DirecTV Now is Raising Prices, Losing Channels, and Generally Getting Worse

When it came to streaming television subscriptions giving viewers the chance to cut the cord with their cable companies and avoid putting satellite dishes on their roofs, DirecTV Now was one of the best options available. They offered a variety of packages with an impressive slate of channels, even when they raised the prices on all their subscription options by $5 last summer. But it appears that price hike wasn’t enough, because AT&T is drastically changing their DirecTV Now packages by charg...

‘The Simpsons’ Showrunner Explains Why the Michael Jackson Episode Was Taken Down

The Simpsons made headlines at the end of last week when the show’s creative team, including co-creator James L. Brooks, decided to pull the third season episode “Stark Raving Dad” featuring guest star Michael Jackson off the air. The decision came after many people on The Simpsons staff saw the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, which brings to light many more disturbing details about alleged sexual abuse of young boys by the late international pop superstar.
