curb your enthusiasm season 9 trailer

Curb Your Enthusiasm is back, and it’s essentially the same as it was when the HBO comedy went off the air six years ago.

While 2011 seems long ago enough to warrant one of those revivals that every popular show seems to be undergoing nowadays, Curb Your Enthusiasm is eschewing all fancy “revival” terms and “fresh” approaches to deliver some good, old-fashioned cantankerous comedy gold with its ninth season.

last flag flying trailer

Electric Dreams Trailer

With sci-fi having a big presence in pop culture today, it’s surprising that we haven’t seen shows like The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits make a comeback to tell a variety of short stories with strange happenings. Netflix’s Black Mirror has filled that void to some extent, but now Amazon has their own sci-fi anthology to bring to the table.

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is a new anthology series inspired by the short stories of author Philip K. Dick, whose stories have previously been turned into movies such as Blade Runner, Total Recall and Minority Report. The new series is bringing 10 short stories to life with an impressive cast spread across each installment, and the first trailer has finally arrived thanks to your friends from down under.

bryan cranston the masterpiece

James Franco is the human equivalent of the bus from Speed or the shark from that Annie Hall speech – if he stops moving, he dies. Or explodes. Or something. Only James Franco knows the mysteries of James Franco. What we do know is that he currently has 19 projects as an actor in various stages of production and 11 projects as a director in the pipeline. You have to admire the audacity of schedule like that, even if the sheer volume of work means that there are as many misses as there are hits.

One of those many, many films in the works is The Masterpiece, which tells the story of the making of Tommy Wiseau’s infamously terrible cult favorite, The Room. And while we still don’t know when this movie is coming out, we now know that Bryan Cranston is in it and he’s playing himself.

isle of dogs

Aside from that pretty wonderful holiday short film/commercial released last month, things have been pretty quiet for director Wes Anderson in the wake of 2014’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, which was a critical darling, a box office hit, a genuine Oscar contender, and very much the best movie released that year. A little over a year ago, we learned that Anderson was making another stop-motion animated movie, that it’s about dogs, and that it will follow in the footsteps of his previous film and feature an impressive ensemble of actors.

Today, we finally know more. The film is called Isle of Dogs and Anderson revealed the full cast and a tiny snippet of footage.

Breaking Bad Saturday Night Live Sketch

As we wait for President-elect Donald Trump to take office in January, we’re slowly learning about all the various appointments he’s making to his Presidential Cabinet. We’re not going to bother debating what’s going on in the real political world, but instead we would like to point out something that happened in the fictional political world being assembled by Donald Trump by way of Saturday Night Live.

This past weekend, John Cena hosted SNL (you can read my whole recap right here), but the cold opening of the sketch show featured a guest star that no one was expecting: Bryan Cranston as Walter White from Breaking Bad. As it turns out, in a sketch lampooning a segment on The Lead with Jake Tapper on CNN, it’s revealed that Walter White has been appointed to run the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

John Cena Hosted Saturday Night Live

Following in the footsteps of Dwayne Johnson, wrestler John Cena is continuing to become more of a mainstream actor, mostly thanks to his surprisingly outstanding comedic chops. The guy has made memorable and hilarious appearances in movies like Trainwreck and Sisters, and now he’s taken on quite the task: hosting Saturday Night Live.

The good news is that John Cena was a great host, throwing himself into every sketch with so much energy. The bad news is the writers and cast didn’t entirely seem to be on the same page, and the sketches surrounding him felt mostly phoned in. We run through the best and worst sketches from the John Cena hosted Saturday Night Live after the jump. Read More »

Why Him? red-band trailer

Thinking about just how awkward this holiday season is going to be with your family this year can be a depressing and uncomfortable experience. Watching someone else suffer through a really awkward holiday season, though? That’s comedy gold. Or so the new comedy Why Him? would like to think.

Bryan Cranston plays the doting father of a bright young woman (Zoey Deutch) who’s excited to introduce her new boyfriend (James Franco) to her family. Problem is, he’s kind of the worst — an Silicon Valley “zillionaire” who has “literally no filter.” Making matters even more upsetting, he’s thinking about proposing. At first the boyfriend tries to ingratiate himself with the family, but when that plan fails an all-out war develops between the would-be in-laws.
