David Brent Life on the Road trailer

It has been well over a decade now since the end of the U.K. Office, which centered around bad boss David Brent and the poor underlings forced to work with him. So what’s the old chap been up to since then? A new Netflix movie promises to answer that question.

Written by, directed by, and starring Ricky GervaisDavid Brent: Life on the Road reveals the former Wernham-Hogg manager is now a traveling salesman for a cleaning products company. When he isn’t pushing mops and brushes, he’s pursuing his dreams of rock stardom with his band, Foregone Conclusion. The mockumentary follows the group on their self-financed U.K. tour, with predictably cringeworthy results. Watch the David Brent: Life on the Road trailer below.  Read More »

Kingpin MCU

Whether a character from DaredevilJessica Jones, or any of Marvel’s other shows could cross over into Marvel’s movies is just a matter of timing, Marvel chief Kevin Feige always says. If there’s one actor from one of those shows that’d like to make the jump, it’s Vincent D’Onofrio. The Kingpin actor admits, however, it’s “pretty much been said it’s not going to happen,” or at least not for a long, long time.

Why Emma Watson Turned Down Cinderella

In March, we’ll get to see Emma Watson become a Disney princess in the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. We’ve already heard her belt out one of the signature tunes from the movie in the most recent TV spot for the movie, and she just looks perfect as Belle, whether it’s her simple blue and white dress, or the elegant yellow ballgown she wears when she dances the night away with the Beast.

But before Emma Watson took on the role of Belle, you might remember that she was in talks to play Cinderella in Kenneth Branagh’s live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic that came out back in 2015. Lily James ended up landing the role of that Disney princess after Watson passed on the role back in 2013, but we never found out why. That changes today as an interview reveals why Emma Watson turned down Cinderella. Read More »

White Men Can't Jump Remake

Since Hollywood is remaking and rebooting everything else that hit the big screen in the 1980s and 1990s, it was only a matter of time before they started digging deeper into sports territory.

White Men Can’t Jump is one of the best comedies to come out of the 1990s. Written and directed by Ron Shelton (Bull Durham), the film follows Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes as two hustling street basketball players who are either trying to swindle each other out of money on the court, or working together to swindle other players out of theirs. Now the 1992 film is getting a remake from Black-ish creator Kenya Barris, and he has a couple of professional athletes helping to make it happen. Read More »

X-Men TV Series

We’re just a few weeks away from FX unleashing their new comic book series Legion. The new TV show follows David (Dan Stevens), a man who has been schizophrenic since he was a child, being placed in and out of psychiatric hospitals. While David and all those around him have presumed that he’s merely mentally ill, the realization soon begins to set in that all of these voices and visions in his head may be a result of him being a mutant.

Legion is based on a Marvel Comics title where David is the son of Professor Charles Xavier, and since it involves mutants in general, fans have been wondering how/if the series will connect to the X-Men movies. Unfortunately, for those hoping for some kind of connective tissue, it has been further confirmed that Legion will exist in its own universe. However, the good news is that another X-Men television series in development at FOX will not be so separated from the X-Men franchise.

Find out more about Legion and the new X-Men TV series in the works after the jump. Read More »
