Apple Orders ‘Ted Lasso’ Comedy Series Written By and Starring Jason Sudeikis

Since leaving Saturday Night Live in 2013,  Jason Sudeikis has kept pretty busy on the big screen. But now he’s headed back to television with a series regular role in a new comedy set up at Apple TV+. Ted Lasso will star Jason Sudeikis as the title character, an idealistic all-American football coach hired to manage an English football club even though he has no previous experience with the sport at all. However, this isn’t the first time Sudeikis has played the character. But the only way you...

Vince Gilligan Teases Some ‘El Camino’ Deleted Scenes, Admits the Movie “Does Not Need to Exist”

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie hit Netflix and limited theaters last Friday, and the general consensus about the film is that it’s well-executed but ultimately inessential. Turns out writer/director Vince Gilligan agrees about that last part; in a new interview, he admits that “this movie, strictly speaking, does not need to exist.” Read Gilligan’s comments calling the film a “gift to the fans,” learn about the lengths he and his team were willing to go in order to preserve some of the film’s ...

32 Days of Halloween XII, Day 16: Night of Terror!

Holy crap, these things fly by! We are halfway through our twelfth year of 32 Days of Halloween. Tonight we kick off with our #TrackoftheDay, a 1989 classic from The Ramones. It’s “Pet Sematary,” the theme (?) from the original movie adaptation. Apparently, King was a big fan of The Ramones, and rightly so. Are they the only band that are known for a horror movie theme song as well as a badass cover of an animated superhero series? Probably. And here’s an awesome piece of audio: apparen...

‘The Report’ Trailer: Adam Driver Investigates the CIA in this Riveting Political Thriller

I saw The Report more than half-a-year ago at Sundance, and yet the movie has lingered with me ever since. It’s a powerful political drama/thriller, and it features what might just be the best performance of Adam Driver‘s career. Driver has quickly risen to be an actor worth paying attention to, and his work in this year’s Marriage Story is phenomenal. But his performance in The Report is even better. And he still has Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on the way. In short, Adam Driver is having ...

Snap Snap: ‘The Addams Family 2’ is Coming to Theaters in 2021

Everyone knows the Addams Family is creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky, altogether ooky, but now we can add “enduring” to the eerie family’s list of descriptors. The characters originated in a comic strip in the 1930s before making the jump to live-action in a popular 1960s sitcom and hopping into two live-action feature films in the ’90s, but the brand new animated film has already proven popular enough to warrant a theatrical sequel. MGM and United Artists Releasing are officially going ...

How the ‘Joker’ Soundtrack Complements the Film’s Vicious Vision

In less than a week,  Joker has amassed a fortune despite a decidedly mixed critical reception. The film took the top prize at Venice, but a large number of critics (primarily American) have excoriated the film as being inappropriate if not downright dangerous, with many other commentators spilling buckets of ink on the topic before they even screened the film. Given the film’s obvious debts to the works of Scorsese (The  King of Comedy above all, with a dash of everything from Goodfel...
