Naturally, she will play a character who lives to be worshipped.  Read More »

Bill Hader HBO Series

HBO has some incredible comedy on the network right now. Veep and Silicon Valley are top notch shows, and Girls just wrapped up its most recent season not too long ago. But the network has even more great comedy shows on the way. The network has already given a series order to the comedy Crashing, produced by Judd Apatow and starring Pete Holmes, and now they’ve picked up another promising series with a great comedic talent in the lead.

Barry is a half-hour comedy following an ex-Marine working as a low-rent hitman in the Midwest, and it’s just been given a series order at HBO with Saturday Night Live veteran Bill Hader writing, directing and starring in the lead role. Find out more about the Bill Hader HBO series below. Read More »

new paul thomas anderson movie

Insert flashback music here: I still remember the first time I saw There Will Be Blood. I saw it on a Friday and thought it might be a masterpiece. So I went back and saw it again on Saturday. And yes, it was a masterpiece. It’s one of those once-in-a-lifetime movies, a collision of filmmaker and actor and material that sing in perfect unison. Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis coming together was a proper event, a more potent and powerful mix of talent that puts just about any typical Hollywood blockbuster to shame.

So the news that Anderson and Day-Lewis may reunite for another movie should make a cinephile’s hair stand on end. The thought of these two collaborating once more feels almost too good to be true.

T.J. Miller Ready Player One

Few shows make me laugh like Silicon Valley and few people on Silicon Valley make me laugh like T.J. Miller makes me laugh. Although Miller has been working steadily since making his film debut in 2008’s Cloverfield (he was the guy behind the camera), he’s finally come into the spotlight in the past few years. Those who don’t know him from the funniest show currently airing on television probably saw him as Weasel in Deadpool a few months ago, where he played an effective foil to Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson.

Still, all of that feels like prologue to being cast in a Steven Spielberg movie. Miller has joined the ensemble of The Beard’s latest project, Ready Player One.

captain marvel brie larson

If a new rumor is to be believed, Marvel Studios has finally found its Captain Marvel. It seems that newly minted Oscar winner Brie Larson is the frontrunner for the coveted role, although it’s not clear just how close she is to signing on the dotted line. In any case, if this is the quality of performer Marvel is pursuing for the star of their first solo female superhero movie, it certainly looks like everything is in good hands.
