Briefly: The final episodes of Breaking Bad won’t air until this summer, but co-star Aaron Paul is already making plans for the finale. Paul is hoping to host a massive screening of the final episode, attended by the full cast and crew, at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary in Los Angeles, CA.
First off, we’ll air the pilot and then the cast will all come up and say thank you to everyone for watching. Then we’ll watch the final episode with everybody there and all the proceeds will go to cancer research and drug rehab centres. There will also be one hell of a party.
No concrete dates, times, or ticketing procedures have been set yet but keep an eye on Paul’s Twitter for all the details. [Empire]

Jason Reitman has once again decided to completely flip the cast for his February Live Read, presented by Film Independent at LACMA. This time around, the film is Glengarry Glen Ross. Best known as a 1992 movie starring Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin and Ed Harris, Glengarry Glen Ross is based on a Pulitzer Prize winning play by David Mamet. Mamet adapted the screenplay for the film and that script is what Reitman’s Live Read will be based on.
The twist, though, is that he’s doing it with an all-female cast. The ladies will A – always, B- be, C- closing on February 21 in Los Angeles. Read the cast below. Read More »
We’ve all seen Back to the Future. But have any of us seen it with Aziz Ansari? Same goes for Raising Arizona. We’ve all seen it, but never with Nick Kroll. And those are just two of the awesome opportunities coming up during the 2nd Annual Wayne Federman Film Festival, which takes place from February 28-March 2 at the Cinefamily in Los Angeles, CA and features six amazing movie screening with six amazing comedians.
Federman is one of those classic “that guy” actors everyone knows and he came up with the idea to get a bunch of famous stand-up comedians to pick films that inspire them, introduce, screen and talk about them. So that’s what going to happen. The full schedule is below. Read More »
Among film fans, the Oscars often get a bum rap. Awards are generally bestowed to predictable, safe choices, and very often the films we really love get no joy from the Academy. But once in a while the Oscars gets it right. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King won 11 Oscars. Star Wars won six Oscars. Raiders of the Lost Ark won four Oscars. Jaws won three Oscars. The Muppets won one last year. Even South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut can consider itself an Oscar nominee. What I’m saying is that despite all the Oscar black eyes, sometimes they give us something to smile about.
Those smiles are the subject of the second art exhibit by the Hero Complex Gallery. It’s called Oscars Legends and will showcase the Oscar-winning films we all know and love. Now, don’t get this mixed up with the Gallery 1988 show happening this weekend. That’s officially licensed and tied to the 2013 Oscars. The Hero Complex show is a retrospective and will be open February 15-16 in San Francisco.
After the jump, check out some of the images from the show. Read More »
This Valentine’s Day, while everyone else is buying disposable greeting cards, why not buy something a little more lasting, like a limited edition print for (500) Days of Summer?
Get A Room is the latest show at the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY and it opens February 15. It’ll feature limited edition screenprints and original art, all created to immortalize some of the most enduring romances in pop culture. But we’re not talking Kate Hudson movies. We’re talking the romances that give some of your favorite cult films a heart. Tyler and Marla in Fight Club, Oskar and Eli in Let the Right One In, Frankenstein and his Bride, Neo and Trinity in The Matrix. They’ll even have one of the first prints (if not the first) focused on (500) Days of Summer.
Below, check out a selection of pieces from the show, as well as info on how to see them in person. Read More »
Location is essential to the medium of television. Unlike movies, which can use a location and move along, TV recycles the same places over and over to conserve time and money. The result is that places on television become characters themselves.
That was the idea behind Austin-based artist Tim Doyle‘s first solo art show, UnReal Estate, in early 2012. Now the sequel is upon us. UnReal Estate II opens Thursday February 7 at Spoke Art in San Francisco, CA. Just like last year, Doyle has immortalized some of your favorite locations from our favorite TV shows. A few examples include the ship Serenity from Firefly, the TARDIS in Doctor Who, the model home on Arrested Development, and Downton Abbey from, well, you know where.
Below we’ve got the entire show and will tell you how to see it in person as well as buy prints online. Read More »
