Oscar-winner Adrien Brody sports a body full of tattoos, full beard, dreadlocks and a couple crazy eyes in the new stoner comedy High School. Co-written and directed by John Stalberg in his feature film debut, High School follows a valedictorian who smokes pot one day before his school begins random drug testing. So as to not get caught making a fatal mistake, he and his friend go about the task of getting every single person in the school high. Matthew Bush and Sean Marquette are the friends, Brody is the man with the drugs and Michael Chiklis, Colin Hanks and Mykelti Williamson are among the other co-stars. One trailer was released for the movie quite some time ago, but now there is a new one.

To be honest, I suspect most of you who follow Dexter but don’t subscribe to Showtime have already downloaded an illegal copy of Sunday night’s Season 6 premiere. But on the off chance you haven’t gotten around to that just yet — or that you’re one of those rare law-abiding types — the network is providing you with an opportunity to watch it legally and for free, in hopes that you’ll consider shelling out the extra $12 or so a month to just subscribe to the channel already.
After the jump, watch the full-length episode via YouTube. A message at the start of the show states that “the following program has been edited from its original form” (read: slightly less blood and blurred-out boobies), but unless you’re a real completist about premium cable-approved nudity, I’m thinking the video below is good enough. Watch it after the jump.

The people behind the marketing for Dexter certainly haven’t been shy about showing off their wares. I feel like we already have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Season 6, thanks to all the featurettes, trailers, teasers, casting announcements, etc. Then again, knowing this show, I’m sure it’s got plenty more surprises and twists up its sleeve.
With just less than a week to go til the return of the series, we have two more previews that tease some of the plot points we’ll be seeing in Season 6. The first, “Guest Stars,” offers a glimpse at what we’ll be seeing from the new characters who’ll be facing off against Dexter (Michael C. Hall) this year; the second, “Tragedy Strikes,” shows everyone’s favorite serial killer at a low point, injured and reaching out for help. Watch them both after the jump.

Thanks to an continuous stream of teasers, trailers, and casting updates, we already have some idea of what we can look forward to from the new season of Dexter. Now, a new behind-the-scenes video spills still more details on the upcoming season, which will hit Showtime this fall.
The previous promos have all pushed the religion angle pretty hard, and the new one finally provides some context for Dexter’s (Michael C. Hall) sudden interest in the topic. Additionally, we get a really good look at Edward James Olmos and Colin Hanks, two of the more exciting recent additions cast. Check out the video, plus a gallery of Season 6 stills, after the jump. (Be forewarned that major spoilers for Seasons 1-5 follow, as well as some more minor reveals about Season 6.)

Showtime’s Dexter keeps rolling, and the channel promises that this upcoming sixth season will bring the character, played once again by Michael C. Hall, back to his roots. There are new cast members like Edward James Olmos, Colin Hanks, and the recently cast Molly Parker (Deadwood) to add a little extra flavor, too. Now we’ve got some new info on the show. After the break you’ll find:
- An enjoyably creepy teaser clip in which Dexter explains just what to expect this season.
- The nature of Molly Parker’s role.
- And, perhaps more interesting, the possible nature of the character played by Edward James Olmos.
Some of what follows is potentially spoilerish, so if you want to let the show deliver the surprises, just watch the teaser and move on. Read More »
David Ayers wrote and will direct End of Watch, which already has Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena cast as two LAPD officers who “confront marriage, love, fatherhood and the harsh realities of the Los Angeles streets.” Now Anna Kendrick and Natalie Martinez (Detroit 1-8-7) are in talks to play the respective love interests in the movie. We don’t have too many more details on End of Watch, but the film shoots later this summer. [Variety]
After the break, a total change of pace into horror as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 co-star Bill Mosely gets a role in Leatherface 3D, but not the same role he played in Chainsaw 2. And Adam Scott books two new comedy roles. Read More »

Looks like Colin Hanks and Dexter may have a few things to talk about when the actor joins the hit series this season. A new trailer has been released for Gil Cates, Jr.‘s indie comedy Lucky, which stars Hanks as a seemingly ordinary guy who’s secretly a serial killer. When he wins the lottery, he finds all of his dreams coming true — he even snags the girl of his dreams. Unfortunately, his win also draws the attention of a detective (Jeffrey Tambor) who’s trying to solve a string of murders. Ari Graynor and Ann-Margret also star. Watch the trailer after he jump.

Some of you might know Colin Hanks as the son of actor Tom Hanks, but most of you probably know the young actor from his roles in such films as Orange County, Peter Jackson’s King Kong, The Great Buck Howard, Oliver Stone’s W., Band of Brothers and tv shows like Roswell and The Good Guys. I personally loved Colin’s fantastic stint as Father John Gill on Mad Men and am very much looking forward to seeing him on the next season of Dexter.
Recently, Colin has been working hard on an interesting documentary film, All Things Must Pass: The Rise and Fall of Tower Records. Colin hopes to raise $50,000 by July 15th to help finish production of the film. Hanks has set up a Kickstarter page to do it. For your help, Colin is offering a variety of incentive gifts: starting at a mere $5 for a “Thank You” mention in the film’s credits, or if you donate more, t-shirts, signed DVDs, limited edition vinyl records, and premiere tickets.
Colin sent me an e-mail explaining why he hopes to make this documentary, and why he needs your help in finishing production. You can read that letter after the jump, reprinted in full. And there is even more information available on the Kickstarter and Facebook Pages.
