Futurama Simpsons Crossover Episode

The Planet Express crew is making a special delivery to your TV this weekend. No, Futurama hasn’t been revived again — Bender, Fry, and the gang are setting a course for Springfield in the next episode of The Simpsons, in hopes of preventing a disastrous future event.

But before it gets to that, though, the Simpsons episode will begin as all Simpsons episodes must — with a couch gag. And in keeping with the Simpsons / Futurama crossover theme, it brings back a minor but much-loved character into the Simpsons family living room. Watch the Simpsons Futurama couch gag after the jump.

Why Don't You Play in Hell clip

Why Don’t You Play in Hell is the biggest, weirdest, most joyous ode to genre moviemaking you’ll see this year. Sion Sono created this film as a blend of hyper-violent gangster pictures, coming of age stories, and romantic comedy. It follows a group of amateur filmmakers who call themselves the Fuck Bombers as they encounter the most unusual yakuza clan battle you’ve ever seen. As the filmmaking gets get in the middle, they find themselves with the opportunity to film the gangsters in action — and on 35mm, no less.

The film opens today and to celebrate we’ve got an exclusive Why Don’t You Play in Hell clip, featuring a scene that really needs no setup or explanation. There’s also the red-band trailer, which will explain a bit more of the story, inasmuch as there’s any way to explain it. Read More »

Better Call Saul

There are a few revelations in the first behind the scenes set video of AMC’s upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off, Better Call Saul. The show stars Bob Odenkirk as the slimy lawyer from Breaking Bad, and if you haven’t followed along with the early promos for the show, one revelation here is that Saul Goodman isn’t the guy’s real name. He’s really Jimmy McGill. That’s just the very tip of the character expansion Saul is getting in this new show, however, and I’m so in. (Who am I kidding, I was already in.)

The video also features tons of the new actors and below the line talent discussing how special it is to be back in the A.B.Q — Albuquerque, New Mexico — to shoot the series. Check out the Better Call Saul set video below. Read More »

Agent Carter

Like so many of her sexist colleagues, we made the mistake of underestimating Peggy Carter when she first burst onto the scene. We enjoyed her in Captain America: The First Avenger, but assumed we wouldn’t see much more of her beyond the occasional flashback. Little did we know that in a few years time, she’d be headlining her very own series.

Said show, Agent Carter, is due to premiere in a few months, and Marvel is now ramping up its marketing efforts. The very first Agent Carter clip sets up the story: Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) is in danger, and he’s sending his pal Peggy (Hayley Atwell) and his butler Jarvis (James D’Arcy) on a mission to clear his name. Watch the Agent Carter clip after the jump.

Update: Marvel has announced the specific premiere dates for Agent Carter and the return of Agents of SHIELD. Find both below as well.

new Birdman poster

Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s Birdman would be a good movie if it looked traditional. It’s a great movie because the filmmaker tried something very ambitious. From the first image of the film, the whole thing is constructed to look likes it’s a long, continuous long take. An uninterrupted, two hour look at the story of Riggan (Michael Keaton) a once famous superhero actor who stages a play hoping to regain his self-respect, the respect of his family and the public.

Considering the film takes place over a few days, across multiple locations and – arguably – multiple plains of consciousness, there was no way for Iñárritu to actually shoot the movie in one take. So how did they do it? A new video has come online that shows some – but not all – of the secrets of the Birdman single shot. Read More »

Paul Rudd Ant Man

Agent Carter‘s Edwin Jarvis wasn’t the only new MCU character fans got to meet last night. ABC also revealed the very first, appropriately tiny bit of Ant-Man footage, featuring Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas as Scott Lang and Hank Pym. Check it out, plus some behind-the-scenes stuff from Avengers: Age of Ultron, after the jump.

the librarians trailer

For the past decade, Noah Wyle has been The Librarian. That’s a character who featured in three made-for-TV movies following an adventurer traveling the world looking for artifacts. He’s very much inspired by Indiana Jones. Now, that character will play a role in a regular TV series that expands the movie’s mythology.

The show is called The Librarians, and it follows a secret society that protects the world from mysterious happenings. Wyle will appear sporadically as his character, but he’s since passed the mantle of Librarian to a new group of characters, including one played by Rebecca Romijn. Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Stargate) is one of the executive producers and will direct a few episodes of the series, which debuts December 7.

Below, read more about the show and watch The Librarians trailer. Read More »
