Wet Hot American Summer documentary

Last weekend, the prequel series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp arrived on Netflix, flashing back to a time before the events of the Sundance selected cult favorite comedy, but with the exact same cast playing younger versions of themselves despite having aged almost 25 years.

Well, today a new behind the scenes documentary called Hurricane of Fun: The Making of Wet Hot American Summer has been released going behind the scenes of Wet Hot American Summer as it was being shot in the year 2000. It’s an hour-long look at the making of the movie with the entire cast appearing on candidly recorded home video, and it looks like a fantastic and entertaining time capsule from the trailer that was just unveiled.

Sisters trailer

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have turned their friendship into a major part of their career; I know I’m not the only one who could dispense with pretty much every part of the recent Golden Globe ceremonies that aren’t the two making jokes about the proceedings. The duo is back on the big screen this Christmas in Sisters, which casts Fey and Poehler as reunited siblings who throw a big party in their childhood home. (And which has nothing to do with the Brian De Palma thriller of the same name.)

This time, Tina Fey is the wilder of the two, while Poehler plays the straight-laced over-achiever. Though once things get going, it looks like the real appeal of the film may simply be watching the two riff on jokes together, and that’s OK with us. Check out the Sisters trailer here. Read More »

Sound of Inside Out

While there’s plenty of sound design, editing and recording that has to be done for live-action movies, the job seems a little more difficult when it comes to feature-length animated films. Every single sound you hear has to be manufactured for the film. And that job gets exponentially harder when you have to give sound to a location you’ve thought about, but have never been to, like the inside of an 11-year old girl’s mind.

That’s the challenge that faced director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera and supervising sound editor Shannon Mills from Skywalker Sound with Pixar’s latest film Inside Out. And now SoundWorks Collection dives into how the sounds of the movie were created, and as you would expect, it’s very fascinating. Learn about the sound of Inside Out after the jump! Read More »

Anyone disappointed by Pixar’s recent focus on sequels should be looking forward to Inside Out, which features what might be the studio’s most original premise yet. Directed by Pete Docter, the new adventure follows the five emotions residing within the mind of an 11-year-old girl named Riley.

They are Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Fear (Bill Hader), and they’re currently guiding her through a rough move to San Francisco. But when things go wrong at HQ, the emotions embark on a journey to set things right. Watch the new Inside Out trailer after the jump.

Sisters

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have insisted that this year was their last hosting the Golden Globes, but that doesn’t mean their days of collaboration are over. Far from it. Last night’s Globes ceremony proved the perfect time to debut the first look at Sisters, their new comedy.

INSIDE OUT

Most Pixar movies are emotional experiences, in that they inspire what the kids used to call “all the feels.” But their next film Inside Out is an emotional experience in a more literal sense, as it delves into the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley.

Living within are five primary emotions that drive her: Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader), and Anger (Lewis Black). Get to know all of them as Pixar begins to release new Inside Out character posters. (We’ll update this post as more posters arrive.)  Read More »

Parks and Recreation - Season 5

Just because something is fun to watch doesn’t mean it was fun to make, as gossip rags are all too happy to tell you. But there’s something about NBC’s Parks and Recreation that makes us think this cast might actually be as delightful on set as they are on screen. Now, the Parks and Recreation Season 6 gag reel confirms those suspicions.

In the ten-minute video, Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Chris Pratt, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza and more take turns messing up, teasing each other, and just generally look like they’re having a good time. Plus, you get to see Ann and Chris again, and even Lil’ Sebastian stops by for an appearance. Watch the Parks and Recreation Season 6 gag reel after the jump.
