Sisters Brothers movie

Here’s the best indie film news of the week: A Prophet and Dheepan director Jacques Audiard is now going to direct the adaptation of a weird, funny, and touching Western novel called The Sisters Brothers. I love this book, which is set during the Gold Rush of 1851, and follows a violent pair of siblings as their contract-killing gig leads them to a man with an unusual plan to find gold.

John C. Reilly optioned the novel rights back in 2011, and he’ll be one of the two stars of the film, which will also be Audiard’s first English-language movie. Read More »

The Big Bang Theory The Force Awakens

The entire world will slowly be overtaken by Star Wars: The Force Awakens as the film’s December 18th release gets closer. Fans of the saga and plenty of average filmgoers can’t wait to see what Episode VII offers, and that also stands true for the fictional characters of The Big Bang Theory who are obsessed with everything from a galaxy far, far away.

The CBS comedy series, returning in the fall for its ninth season, will indeed be impacted by the release of the new Star Wars movie, and executive producer Steve Molaro confirms that they’re trying to figure out how the impending release of The Force Awakens will be weaved into Sheldon (Jim Parsons), Leonard (Johnny Galecki), Howard (Simon Helberg) and Raj’s (Kunal Nayyar) lives.

Key and Peele Gremlins 2

Let’s get one thing straight: Gremlins 2 is a very funny film with a hell of a lot of energy, and one of the best jokes on the studio idea of sequel creation that has ever been made. I love the movie. You can’t ding Gremlins 2 for being ridiculous and excessive, because it knows it is excessive. That’s the entire point of the film.

That doesn’t mean this Key and Peele sketch about the creation of Gremlins 2 isn’t hilarious, because many of same jokes within could be applied to a lot of films that aren’t nearly as entertaining as Joe Dante’s 1990 sequel to his original 1984 film. Jordan Peele plays “the hollywood sequel doctor,” who goes from observing the Gremlins 2 writer’s room brainstorming session to taking it over and pushing things in absurd directions that will be familiar to anyone who has seen the film.

Rock the Kasbah trailer

Thanks to the first trailer, people knew a little bit about Rock the Kasbah earlier this year. Then Bill Murray showed up to Comic Con to promote the Barry Levinson movie. After the actor walked around Hall H doing karaoke before the panel, and spent a bunch of time roaming the aisles afterwards to shake hands and pose for pics with fans, the film’s profile got a nice bump.

Now here’s a new Rock the Kasbah trailer, and it’s all about Murray’s comic energy and the big supporting cast, which includes Kate Hudson, Zooey Deschanel, Danny McBride, Scott Caan, and Bruce Willis. Have a look below. Read More »

Love the Coopers trailer

We’re not anywhere near being able to say “Christmas is just around the corner.” It’s not even fall yet and all the pumpkin-spiced junk is hitting shelves along with Halloween decorations, but still, it’s just a little too kooky to even start thinking about Christmas.

However, when you’re a movie studio and you have to start promoting movies a few months out, you have to start parading the holiday movies way ahead of time. And that’s where the Love the Coopers trailer comes into play, showing off a new Christmas comedy featuring the likes of Ed Helms, Olivia Wilde, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried and more. Watch the trailer below! Read More »

Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer

Earlier this summer, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer made the whole world jealous by sharing photos of themselves jet-skiingbuilding human pyramids, and generally living it up with each other. As it turns out, though, they’re not just playing together — they’re also working together on a new project.

According to Lawrence, they’re “almost done” writing the screenplay, and plan to co-star in the as-yet-unnamed movie. Get all the details on the Jennifer Lawrence Amy Schumer project after the jump.  Read More »

Mike Birbiglia improv movie

If you’re a fan of stand-up comedy, I hope that you’ve discovered the work of Mike Birbiglia. If not, Netflix Instant currently has two of his comedy specials, What I Should Have Said Was Nothing: Tales from My Secret Public Journal and My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, and I recommend watching them immediately.

In addition, Birbiglia also made his directorial debut with his auto-biographical indie comedy Sleepwalk with Me, which played at the Sundance Film Festival back in 2012. Like Birbiglia’s comedy, it’s definitely worth watching. And now Birbiglia has just started production on his sophomore directing effort, a movie set in the world of improv called Don’t Think Twice.

Ash vs Evil Dead Making-Of

We’ve seen a couple trailers for Ash vs Evil Dead, now it’s time for the behind the scenes featurette. This one should do the trick; it’s a couple minutes of bland but enthusiastic quotes from Bruce Campbell, producer Robert Tapert, new co-star Lucy Lawless, and composer Joseph LoDuca, among others. It’s got some good shots of the show’s creation, and one or two good bits, including Lucy Lawless’s comment that the show is a “jolly splatter-fest!” Check out the Ash vs Evil Dead making-of video below.  Read More »

Bring It On

On August 25th 2000, Bring It On hit theaters nationwide. Thats right, want to feel old? Its been 15 years since the release of that movie. I’ve always loved that movie for whatever reason, call it a guilty pleasure. I feel like it were released today it would have a bunch of theatrical sequels and the same success that we’re seeing from the like-minded Pitch Perfect franchise.

But what would a real Bring it on Sequel look like? I’m betting that a few years down the line we could see a theatrical Bring It On sequel/reboot with the stars playing mothers, coaches, or teachers. But where might the characters of Bring It On be 15 years later? The cast of the 2000 film give us their answers.
