Apparently Kevin Smith has a nice relationship with AMC. Smith’s Comic Book Men has been on the network for around four years now. I’ve never watched it, but it’s done well enough for AMC to give the writer-director another program. Smith and actor Greg Grunberg (Heroes) will co-host a talk show, called Geeking Out (working title).

Find out more about the project below.

richard linklater mondo gallery

Director Richard Linklater is one of Austin, Texas’ favorite sons, so it was not surprising in the slightest when his newest movie, Everybody Wants Some, was selected to open this year’s SXSW Film Festival. Linklater’s work has screened at the fest on several occasions and Linklater himself has put in more than a few memorable appearances. He interviewed fellow Texan Wes Anderson after a screening of The Grand Budapest Hotel a few years ago and it was magnificent.

And that brings us to the news of the moment: Mondo, the Austin-based purveyor of terrific film and pop culture-related posters that sell out way too fast, is dedicating its next gallery show to Linklater and his work.

Silicon Valley Season three teaser

Season two of Silicon Valley did not disappoint. The episode where Pied Piper (minor spoiler alert) live-streamed somebody trapped at the bottom of a ravine? Wonderful. The season two finale ended things on a high note with a surprisingly suspenseful final episode. What’s changed for Pied Piper since season two? Based on the Silicon Valley season three teaser, not much.

Game of Thrones Season 6 - Ramsay (header)

Although Game of Thrones fans have been begging for season 6 details since the minute season 5 ended, HBO’s been pretty stingy about doling out any info. All they’ve released so far are some brief teasers amounting to a few seconds of new footage, a very fan-bait-y poster, and one measly photograph of Bran looking old enough to make us feel old.

That is, until today. Now that the season 6 premiere is just two and a half months away, it’s time for HBO to ramp up its efforts to remind us of how very much we love this show, and how very excited we are for it to return. Expect a deluge of new marketing materials over the next several weeks, starting today with a big fat batch of Game of Thrones season 6 photos. Check ’em out after the jump.  Read More »

Brothers Grimsby Red Band Trailer

After making a huge splash by bringing his small screen character Borat to the big screen in one of the most unique and hilarious comedies of the past 20 years (despite endless quotes from everyone nearly ruining it), Sacha Baron Cohen hasn’t exactly captured the magic of that feature film outing, but he’s not giving up.

The latest comedy from the creator and star of Da Ali G Show is The Brothers Grimsby, a conventional action comedy starring Mark Strong as one of the greatest spies working today, who suddenly finds his career and life in jeopardy when his estranged, screw-up of a brother shows up to reconnect with him. A new Brothers Grimsby red band trailer has just surfaced, taking full advantage of the roster of characters Cohen has played before in order to help audiences get interested in this new one.

Our Kind of Traitor Trailer

Although the adaptation of John le Carré‘s spy thriller Our Kind of Traitor has been in the can since 2014, the film has taken a little while to make it to the big screen. But our friends across the pond will finally get a chance to see it this spring, and the first trailer finds Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris (Skyfall) in the wrong place at the wrong time, suddenly caught up in a struggle between a Russian mafia money launderer (Stellan Skarsgard), a ruthless MI6 agent (Damian Lewis) and the British government.

Watch the Our Kind of Traitor trailer after the jump. Read More »
