Last night brought the surprise premiere of Michael Moore in TrumpLand, a film that was put together in seven weeks after staging a one-man-show about the 2016 election at a theater in Wilmington, Ohio, a town known for being on the right side of the aisle. At only 73 minutes, it turns out that this project (which Moore had just finished cutting yesteray morning) isn’t a documentary about Donald Trump, but rather a one-man show that feels more like a commencement speech or stand-up routine featuring Michael Moore explaining why you should vote for Hillary Clinton rather than why you shouldn’t vote for Donald Trump.
So how did it turn out? Find out what the first Michael Moore in TrumpLand reviews have to say. Read More »
With just a few weeks left until the United States votes for the next President of the United States of America (as well as plenty of other important political offices and issues, the election is really heating up. We’re now in the month where campaigns pull out all the stops and do everything in their power to win the election.

And it sounds like documentary filmmaker Michael Moore might be getting involved in that election tradition. Read More »

Since we’re right in the middle of election season, we’re undoubtedly going to be seeing presidential candidates popping up everywhere leading up to November. Most appearances will be very serious in nature on various news programs, talks shows and more, but every now and then we’ll get to have some laughs at their expense too.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appeared on a new episode of Funny or Die’s ongoing web series Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, and though it’s not quite as charming or funny as Barack Obama’s appearance back in 2014, there are still some really good laughs to be had here.

Sunday night after the Oscars, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel had his usual star-studded show to follow Hollywood’s biggest night. There was plenty of fun to be had, from the premiere of a deleted scene from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice featuring Kimmel himself discovering the true identity of Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne, to the latter star helping to sneak Matt Damon into the show.
But outside of comic book jokery and the usual Matt Damon feud shenanigans, Jimmy Kimmel also rounded up Broadway and big screen duo Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane for a new take on The Producers, this time turning Bialystock & Bloom into political consultants who concoct a plan to make money off of a candidate who is “a real trainwreck, a schmuck, a putz, a real Grade A, world-class, gold-plated nincompoop.” Yeah, you know who they’re talking about.

Isaac’s next new gig looks likely to be A Foreigner, from Me and Earl and the Dying Girl helmer Alfonso Gomez-Rejon. Read More »

HBO has cancelled The Brink, the dark geopolitical satire starring Tim Robbins and Jack Black, after one season. Which isn’t too shocking at first glance, given that the series never garnered much buzz and earned only modest ratings. What makes it weird is that the news comes after HBO already renewed The Brink for Season 2, way back in July. More about The Brink cancellation after the jump. Read More »
