Big Mouth Teasers - Jerry Seinfeld Stand-Up

Netflix has plenty of original programming coming to the streaming service in September, and teasers for two of their biggest comedy offerings have just hit the web.

First up, Nick Kroll is trying his hand at animated comedy with a new series called Big Mouth that he co-created with Andrew Goldberg, which focuses on the nightmare of going through puberty as a teen, envisioning hormones as giant monsters who are bad influences on teenagers. It looks delightfully twisted and weird for a coming-of-age series.

Additionally, Netflix has also announced the premiere date for Jerry Seinfeld‘s new stand-up special, which is part of the big deal the comedian struck with the streaming service for several specials as well as his series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Along with the date, they’ve also released several clips for you to enjoy.

Little Evil trailer

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is a fantastic horror comedy. Eli Craig‘s directorial debut is a sweet, bloody as hell and consistently funny film with two standout performances. Craig has reunited with the star of his first movie, Tyler Labine, for his second feature, Little Evil. The Netflix comedy stars Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) and Evangeline Lilly (Ant-Man) as a newly wed couple. They’re happily married, but there’s one problem: the child (Owen Atlas) they’re raising is the antichrist.

Below, watch the Little Evil trailer.

Knight Rider Movie - John Cena & Kevin Hart

Hot on the heels of Knight Rider star David Hasselhoff hoping that Robert Rodriguez could direct him in a Logan-esque film adaptation of the beloved 1980s TV series featuring the Baywatch star as an aged Michael Knight, we have news on the development of a Knight Rider movie, but it’s not going to make David Hasselhoff happy at all.

The Weinstein Company is reportedly taking a crack at making a Knight Rider movie, but rather than taking a more serious approach, the project will follow in the footsteps of 21 Jump Street by making it an action comedy. Furthermore, they want to put John Cena behind the steering wheel as Michael Knight and they’re considering Kevin Hart to provide the voice of the talking car called KITT. Read More »

Some Like It Hot - BBC 100 Greatest Comedies

Last year, the BBC polled nearly 200 critics in an attempt to determine the 100 Greatest Films of the 21st Century. This year, they’ve assembled another cinema poll, one that is bound to spark just as many debates, as they tried to pin down the 100 Greatest Comedies of All Time.

Billy Wilder’s classic Some Like It Hot topped the list with the perfect satire Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb coming in at second place, followed by Woody Allen‘s meta romantic comedy Annie Hall, Harold Ramis‘ delightfully repetitive Groundhog Day and Leo McCarey‘s revered Duck Soup rounding out the top five. The full list contains an interesting mix of classics and modern favorites, but there are some glaring omissions to be sure.

friends from college season two

Netflix has renewed director Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and writer Francesca Delbanco‘s comedy seriesFriends from College, for a second season. Stoller and Delbanco’s show wasn’t reviewed kindly by most critics, but with a season 2 on the way, the sad comedy must’ve found its audience. The Netflix program features an excellent cast as a very flawed group of friends. They scored a lot of laughs and some empathy during season one, which is a surprisingly pleasant watch as it’s not always about the most pleasant subjects.

Below, learn more about Friends from College season 2.

Steven Soderbergh commentaries

If you want to have a great weekend, listening to a bunch of Steven Soderbergh commentaries isn’t a wrong way to go. His tracks are as varied and as entertaining as his movies. While some filmmakers try to retain some mystery about their process or films, Soderbergh goes in the opposite direction. He is an open book.

Soderbergh has recorded so many great commentary tracks throughout his career and I’ve maybe listened to a third of them. My hope is to have heard all of them by some point – tou can learn more than a thing or two listening to him talk over his movies. I’d recommend all the Steven Soderbergh commentary tracks I’ve heard, but here’s four that might not be a bad place to start.

suburbicon trailer

No one does black comedy better than the Coen brothers, and with their frequent leading man George Clooney behind the camera, it seems like Suburbicon will bring a whole new twist onto a classic Coen tale.

A new international trailer for the Coen brothers-penned, Clooney-directed film about Suburbia Gone Wrong has arrived and it features star Matt Damon getting his hands — and face — bloodier than ever.

World of Tomorrow 2

Don Hertzfeldt‘s short film World of Tomorrow packs more ideas and genuine emotions into its 16-minute run time than many contemporary full-length feature films even attempt, so it’s no wonder the movie was nominated for an Oscar for Best Short Film at the 2016 Academy Awards. If you haven’t seen it, you can remedy that by checking it out on Netflix, because it’s streaming there right now for subscribers to watch. Unfortunately, the short didn’t win (the prize went to something called Bear Story that year that we haven’t seen), but Hertzfeldt just shared some good news: World of Tomorrow 2 is officially on the way.

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.
