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 »

This may come as a surprise, but Comedy Central’s Drunk History officially won an Emmy last year. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the Outstanding Variety Sketch Series award the show was nominated for (a nod the series also landed this year), but instead for the wonderful historical costumes crafted by Christina Mongini. However, if the new Drunk History season 4 trailer is any indicator, then an award win for the series as a whole could still be coming down the road. Watch below! Read More »

For years now, John Turturro has been really, really clear that he’d like to star in a Big Lebowski spinoff centered on his Jesus Quintana character. But for the most part, we’ve written off that chatter as wishful thinking. Actors talk all the time about sequels and spinoffs that never get made, and the Coens have never expressed any serious interest in making a Jesus movie.
As it turns out, though, Turturro was dead serious. In fact, he may even be working on that Big Lebowski spinoff as we speak. A new report indicates his new film Going Places, which is currently in production with Turturro, Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, and Susan Sarandon, is actually the long-talked-about Big Lebowski follow-up.

There have been countless movies of all kinds featuring stories within stories. Adaptation, The Princess Bride, Synecdoche, New York and even Tropic Thunder all have layers of storytelling within them. Now a new film from director Pedro Morelli that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year takes that to the next level with one of the most meta narratives I’ve ever seen.
Zoom follows a comic book artist named Emma (Alison Pill) working in a sex doll factory who gets caught up in her desire to resemble the artificial, plastic fantasy of beauty that she sees everyday. Her only escape lies in a comic book where she controls a dreamy action filmmaker named Edward (Gael Garcia Bernal) who is working a more artistic film about a model named Michelle (Mariana Ximenes), who just happens to be working on a novel about a cartoonist named Emma. Yes, they’re all creating each other’s story, though you don’t get that sense at all in the first Zoom trailer after the jump. Read More »
For a long time now, Tim Burton has been the popular kid.

His name means something to moviegoers, thanks to movies like Edward Scissorhands, Beetlejuice, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Ed Wood, Batman, Big Fish, and Sleepy Hollow. Next month, the Alamo Drafthouse plans on celebrating these films.

Even though there have been rumblings of a Step Brothers sequel, it’s safe to say that project is probably just a pipe dream at this point. However, that doesn’t mean we won’t have another team-up of Talladega Nights stars Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in the near future.
Holmes and Watson is a comedic take on Sherlock Holmes that has been kicking around since 2008, but it fell to the wayside when Guy Ritchie’s adaptation of the detective with Robert Downey Jr. moved forward quickly and successfully. But now it appears enough time has passed for the project to resurface as a new project for Ferrell and Reilly to finally reunite yet again.
