‘What We Do in the Shadows’ Sequel in the Works

What We Do in the Shadows

We’ve made no secret of our affection for What We Do in the Shadows, naming the vampire mockumentary one of our favorite films of the year so far. So naturally, we’re thrilled to hear we might be in for another adventure into Wellington’s surprisingly mundane supernatural underbelly.

A What We Do in the Shadows sequel is in the works, as confirmed by the first film’s co-star / co-director / co-writer Jemaine Clement. Get more details on the What We Do in the Shadows sequel after the jump.

(Updated with new information about a potential What We Do in the Shadow spinoff show.) Read More »

Doll and Em season two trailer

Though there may not be as much pomp and circumstance about HBO’s comedy series Doll & Em as there is surrounding Game of Thrones or the cable network’s other comedy series like Silicon Valley and Veep, the show starring Emily Mortimer (The Newsroom) and Dolly Wells (Some Girls) has enough of a following and acclaim for a second season coming in September.

The first trailer for season two of Doll & Em has just arrived, showing off what’s in store for Mortimer and Wells as fictional versions of themselves. This season they’re writing and hoping to produce a play, and they’ve even got Olivia Wilde and Evan Rachel Wood, also playing themselves, on board to star.

Red TV Series

The quality of television in the past few years has been most impressive, even outpacing film as the place to find the highest quality entertainment right now. And that means some filmmakers are bringing their own film properties to the small screen for a second chance at finding an audience.

The newest attempt to bring a movie to television is RED, the action comedy franchise starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren and more. NBC is developing an hour-long RED TV series, and we’ve got early details on the developing project. Read More »

Finding Dory D23

Andrew Stanton‘s Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory was heavily teased on the D23 Expo show floor, and at Friday’s big animation presentation Stanton revealed some of the thinking behind the film, and offered some new footage to the crowd. Basically, his core questions were about Dory and her family. Could she find her way home if she was lost again? Who makes up her family?

In addition to talking up some of those ideas, the presentation revealed a new character: an octopus, voiced by Ed O’Neill. See an image of that newcomer and learn more below.

Shakira in Zootopia

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Zootopia, directed by Rich Moore and Byron Howard, was the first film to get a presentation during the animation panel at the D23 Expo today, with John Lassetere explaining “one of the things I’ve always loved about Disney Animation is talking animal movies,” with Mr. Toad being a favorite character. So, “what if we made one now; what if we made one for today’s audience?”

The idea came to life as a cop buddy comedy (think 48 Hours, but with talking animals) that unites a rabbit and a fox. Part of that idea will be brought to life by Shakira, who voices Gazelle, “Zootopia’s biggest pop star.” She’ll also provide the new song ‘Try Everything’ for the film.

Riley's First Date

Pixar’s film Inside Out is all about (spoiler) reconciling the seeming conflict between Joy and Sadness. So, for the first short film starring the Inside Out characters, it makes sense to focus on the early dating life of the now 12-year old Riley, because Joy and Sadness will really get a workout as she starts to date. Disgust, Fear, and Anger will likely all get their due time in control, too, but hopefully that can wait a few years.

Anyway, Riley’s First Date? (note: the question mark is part of the title!) is the first spin-off short from Inside Out, and we have the first info on it below.
