Beetlejuice Musical - Michael Keaton

If the Alamo Drafthouse’s upcoming celebration of Tim Burton next month, appropriately called Septemburton, wasn’t enough gothic circus fun for you folks, then we have some good news. Beetlejuice will be getting the musical treatment on Broadway.

Jean Claude Van Johnson Trailer - Jean Claude Van Damme

This weekend brings Amazon’s new pilots to their website for viewers to vote which ones get turned into full fledged series. If there’s any good in this universe, everyone will support the new pilot for Jean-Claude Van Johnson. You might remember we broke the exclusive on the series at Amazon following a contractor named Jean-Claude Van Johnson who lives a cover life under the guise of washed up action star Jean-Claude Van Damme. Now the Jean Claude Van Johnson trailer has arrived to convince you to watch the show, and it’s simultaneously hilarious and depressing. Read More »

jonah hill martin scorsese

We place the great artists on pedestals. We like to look at the finished work, whether it be a painting or an album or a movie, and discuss the intentions of the creator. The author, the sculptor, and the film director  are often enigmas in the eyes of those who take in they work. How they achieve the end results, their actual process, is so often a mystery to those outside of their cast and crew.

So yes, listening to Jonah Hill talk about being directed by Martin Scorsese (a textbook definition of the phrase “living legend”) on the set of The Wolf of Wall Street is something you may need in your life.

big lebowski spin-off - john turturro

I probably have to eat a pile of shoes or hats or something because I’m pretty sure I’ve said in public, on more than occasion, that John Turturro‘s much-discussed The Big Lebwoski spin-off was obviously a pipe dream that was never going to happen. Well, I was apparently wrong. Which article of clothing shall I devour first?

The news that Turturro was reprising the role of Jesus Quintana in a new film broke just a few days ago and now the first picture from the set has arrived. Lesson learned: don’t ever underestimate the perseverance of a beloved character actor who really, really loves one of his most memorable characters.

Jon Stewart on The Nightly Show

Last night brought the final episode of The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore at Comedy Central after the cable network recently announced the cancellation of the political satire and panel program. And what better way to close out the show than with an appearance by Jon Stewart, the former host of The Daily Show? In typical Jon Stewart fashion, he had some very sage advice following the cancellation of The Nightly Show, and it makes us anticipate greatly his return to TV with his deal at HBO.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

The Tick

Peter Serafinowicz has some big shoes to fill with the rebooted live-action version of The Tick. The character was last played by Patrick Warburton in the far too short-lived Fox television series. A scheduling conflict meant he couldn’t play Ben Edlund‘s character again, but we’re confident Serafinowicz will make for a fine replacement.

The Tick pilot debuted on Amazon last night, but if you haven’t seen it yet you can get a taste of Serafinowicz in action in two new clips from The Tick.

War Dogs

Todd Phillips‘ War Dogs might become one of the summer’s few pleasant surprises. Critics are somewhat mixed on the film, but the reviews are far more positive than what we read for The Hangover sequels, and they’re about on par with the reviews for Phillips’ Old SchoolStarsky & Hutch, and Road Trip, his more well-liked movies. Jonah Hill is receiving praise for his performance as obnoxious gunrunner Efraim Diveroli, but originally, Shia LaBeouf was going to play the character.

Below, find out why LaBeouf and Jesse Eisenberg didn’t lead the War Dogs cast.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off Print - Marq Spusta

This past summer marked the 30th anniversary of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and there were various screenings of the film here and there to celebrate the milestone, but otherwise it’s been a pretty quiet celebration. It’s certainly nowhere near as buzzworthy as the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future last year or Ghostbusters the year before that. That’s a real shame, because this John Hughes classic is one of the best coming of age comedies of all time, and it deserves some celebratory love. That’s where artist Marq Spusta and Dark Hall Mansion come into play with a new Ferris Bueller’s Day Off print that you can get today. Read More »
