Portlandia Season 8

It’s a damn shame, but the comedy sketch series Portlandia is coming to an end after being renewed for an eighth and final season on IFC. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have assembled a cavalcade of hilarious characters over the years, and they’ve brought some of their best comedian friends into the show with them to make it even better. The final season will be no different, and it will features a crossover that no one was expecting, but everyone should be excited about.

Two of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s most favorite characters are Tony and Candace, who work at a feminist bookstore in Portland, and this season they’ll be joined by none other than Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland, better known as Nick Kroll and John Mulaney from both the Oh, Hello comedy special on Netflix and The Kroll Show.

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week our wounded soldiers find solace in the great big blue, get sent up the river to deal with our emotions, understand a cultural phenomenon of the 80s, become a tiny dancer, and see what the director of Tangerine is up to now.

Vengeance A Love Story trailer

Did you see the trailer for Eli Roth and Bruce Willis’s remake of Death Wish and think to yourself, “Man, I really hope we get a second movie this year in which a woman being raped is the impetus for a guy taking justice into his own hands,” than boy, do I have some great news for you. Here’s the first trailer for a new Nicolas Cage thriller called Vengeance: A Love Story, which is based on author Joyce Carol Oates’ 2003 novel Rape: A Love Story.

American Made Featurette

Right now Tom Cruise is out of commission with a broken ankle, halting the production of Mission: Impossible 6 for anywhere from six weeks to three months. But if you still need your fix of Cruise in the meantime this fall will deliver a big dose of the international superstar in the true story of an airline pilot turned drug and gun trafficker and money launderer for the government.

American Made tells the real story of a man named Barry Seal who was recruited by the CIA to do some shady business dealings with some of the most notorious drug kingpins of the 1980s, and he was paid handsomely for it. For those who maybe don’t know about the true story, a new American Made featurette shows Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman recounting what they learned about the real Barry Seal, complete with new footage from the movie itself.

the big sick deleted scenes and bloopers

Contrary to the title, it’s hard to get sick of The Big Sick. The sleeper hit of the summer, The Big Sick was absolutely charming with its romantic-comedy twist on Kumail Nanjiani and his wife Emily V. Gordon‘s somewhat sad semi-autobiographical tale. But it’s also funny as hell.

It’s a movie by a stand-up comedian about stand-up comedians, and it shows. The movie is rife with improvised jokes and dry humor, even as it goes into some dark, emotional places with the titular sickness of Gordon’s fictional character, played by Zoe Kazan. The movie is so stuffed with jokes in fact, that Amazon Studios has released online a clip of all the deleted jokes and puns that didn’t make the movie.

Superbad trivia

It’s hard to believe, but yesterday marked the tenth anniversary of the theatrical release of Greg Mottola‘s Superbad, the high school comedy that launched the careers of up-and-coming actors like Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, and Emma Stone.

To celebrate the occasion, Seth Rogen – who co-wrote the movie with Evan Goldberg and co-starred as Officer Michaels – took to Twitter to share some Superbad trivia with fans, revealing the inspirations for many of the movie’s funniest scenes and drawing a strange connection between the film and the MTV reality show Jersey Shore.

Chucky vs Freddy

Despite the many horror franchises that exist in cinema, crossovers between them in recent years have been few and far between. While Universal once had all of their monster movies like Frankenstein, Wolf Man and Dracula exist in the same universe (something the studio is failing horribly at recreating today), the only major franchise crossovers have been Freddy vs Jason and Alien vs Predator. Here’s a shoutout to Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys, just for existing. But the creator of Child’s Play wants to make one happen with everyone’s favorite serial killer doll meeting the master of haunting your dreams.

Don Mancini has kept the Child’s Play franchise alive somehow by making it crazier with the likes of Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and the direct-to-video release Cult of Chucky. Ideally, he’d like to see the murderous Good Guy doll meet up with Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street, and he has a whole idea of how it would work.

Terminator 2 - Billy Idol as T-1000

This year doesn’t mark a special anniversary for Terminator 2: Judgment Day, but since James Cameron’s action sequel is coming back to theaters in 3D, there’s a little bit of chatter about the 1991 film making the rounds as publicity for the re-release builds. That includes Robert Patrick, who played the liquid metal villain T-1000 in the sequel, discussing his history with the role, which resulted in the actor revealing that he wasn’t the person who was originally cast to play the part. Instead, that role was supposed to go to none other than rock star Billy Idol. Wait, what? Read More »
