Right now Netflix is streaming the documentary Tig, focusing on the life story of comedienne Tig Notaro, a stand-up comic who skyrocketed to instant fame after a set about her being diagnosed with cancer went viral, despite the fact that there was no video available for anyone to watch.
Now Tig Notaro is getting her own semi-autobiographical series on Amazon, and it has some pretty exciting executive producers on board. Find out more about the Tig Notaro Amazon series below! Read More »

New Line’s Shaft reboot is moving forward with help from, of all places, ABC’s Wednesday night sitcom block. Black-ish creator Kenya Barris and The Goldbergs writer/exec producer Alex Barnow have been tapped to write the latest take on blaxploitation classic.
Whereas the original Shaft was a gritty thriller, the new film is envisioned as an action-comedy. Not surprisingly, not everyone is happy about this change in tone. One vocal opponent is current Shaft comic book writer David F. Walker, who has a message for New Line Cinema: “Fuck you!” More about the Shaft reboot writers after the jump. Read More »
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg didn’t quite get a chance to destroy Christmas last year thanks to the messy release of their film The Interview. Not that they’re still thinking about it or anything; it’s just one of the first cards that comes up in The Night Before red-band trailer.
This new Christmas comedy comes from director Jonathan Levine (50/50, The Wackness) and features Seth Rogen, Anthony Mackie, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as three friends who are spending their last Christmas together before life takes them all on their own separate paths. Their party night turns crazy thanks to the intersection of drugs and (we’re just guessing based on this trailer) their own anxieties about impending life changes. It’s a very funny trailer, with a church scene featuring Rogen and Jillian Bell scoring the biggest comic hit. Watch below. Read More »

Richard Linklater has already completed his follow-up to Boyhood — when your last feature took over a decade to make, pretty much any other turnaround seems quick. The movie has been called That’s What I’m Talking About, and also referred to as Everybody Wants Some, but the current status pegs it as Untitled Richard Linklater movie.
What we do know about the film is that it follows a young man as he arrives at college, and now the film has an April 2016 release date. In addition, Linklater is the top choice to direct The Rosie Project, which Sony has set up with Jennifer Lawrence set to star. Read More »
Earlier this month, we got a small tease of Will Ferrell making America’s pasttime even greater in the HBO documentary special Ferrell Takes the Field, featuring the comedy star playing every position in baseball, on ten different Major League Baseball teams.

Summer camp isn’t just about woodland hikes and friendship bracelets. It’s also a place to learn some some valuable life lessons, like the art of negotiating as taught in this very first Wet Hot American Summer First Day of Camp clip. Lindsay (Elizabeth Banks) strikes a deal with J.J. (Zak Orth), and does so with a no-nonsense steeliness that’d do Jack Donaghy (her former TV husband from 30 Rock) proud.
