One new televisions series I’m excited about is HBO’s Vice Principals. The dark comedy series, which begins airing on July 17th 2016, is from Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green and Eastbound & Down creator Jody Hill stars Danny McBride and Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight) as two vice principals “who are an in epic power struggle, vying for the top spot: to be school principal.” Today we learn that the series will not be on the air for very long, only a couple of seasons. Learn why, after the jump.

This is a pretty good summer for Danny McBride. He has his latest HBO show, Vice Principals, premiering soon, and he’s currently shooting Ridley Scott‘s Alien: Covenant in Australia. Co-creating another potential success like Eastbound & Down and getting to work on an Alien movie? That’s hardly a bad way to spend the summer. When we heard about McBride’s casting in the sequel, his role was unclear, but the actor says he’s playing the captain of the spacecraft Covenant.
Below, Danny McBride discusses Alien: Covenant.

Production on Alien: Covenant is happening right now, and so far we’ve gotten a couple of behind-the-scenes sneak peeks showing Katherine Waterston on the titular ship, as well as the return of Michael Fassbender as the android David. Now we get a first look at one of the other new cast members who may be the most intriguing part of the talent roster.
Danny McBride is part of the Covenant crew, and while we don’t know his character’s name just yet, a new photo from the set shows him getting direction from Ridley Scott while on the bridge of the ship that will likely have plenty of blood splattered all over it before the film is over.

After teaming up for the raunchy comedy series Eastbound & Down on HBO, director David Gordon Green and star Danny McBride return to the network this summer with Vice Principals. This time the show follows Danny McBride as a vice princpial competing with Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight) for the recently vacated position as principal at Lincoln High School, and these two childish grown-ups aren’t beyond sabotaging each other in inappropriate ways.
A new Vice Principals trailer has arrived, and HBO is finally using the presence of Bill Murray in the pilot as the retiring principal of Lincoln High School. In the new glimpse for the show, Murray has some advice for McBride and Goggins before they start competing for his job. Watch below. Read More »
On Alien Day last month, director Ridley Scott offered our first look at the production of Alien: Covenant by way of the mission patch with the name of the title ship we’ll be following. This is just the first of what is meant to be two sequels (even though Scott once said this was the first in a new trilogy) that lead us up to the events of Alien in 1979. Production is still underway, and a new photo has just been shared from the set that provides us with our first look at Katherine Waterston as the new female lead character, Daniels. Will she be as cool as Ellen Ripley?

Last night was a big premiere night for HBO with the return of Game of Thrones, followed by the debuts of the new seasons of both Veep and Silicon Valley. And since millions were watching, the cable network decided to release a new Vice Principals trailer. Danny McBride plays Neal Gamby, who basically feels like a somewhat toned down Kenny Powers in a high school, the vice principal of discipline desperately vying for a new vacant position as the principal at Lincoln High School. But Walton Goggins, the vice principal of curriculum, isn’t going to let that job go without a fight.

SXSW tends to be a hectic time for anyone in the general vicinity of Austin, Texas, but Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg may be even busier than most this year. Not only are they premiering their new series Preacher, which hits AMC this spring, they’re also unveiling the first look at their animated film Sausage Party, in the form of a work-in-progress screening.
Described by Rogen as an “R-rated Pixar-style movie,” Sausage Party follows a bunch of food items at a grocery store who wonder about the “Great Beyond” — i.e., what happens after they get purchased. Rogen, who co-wrote the script with Goldberg, Kyle Hunter, and Ariel Shaffir, voices a hot dog named Frank who falls out of a shopping cart and embarks on an eventful journey to make it back to his shelf before the Fourth of July sale. Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon directed. Watch the first Sausage Party trailer after the jump. Read More »
Even though Easter weekend is still a couple weeks away, The Angry Birds Movie is getting a head start by getting their holiday greeting out there. After all, birds have become a part of the Easter holiday, along with rabbits, for no good reason at all. The good news is that even though this is just a shameless plug for the animated adaptation of the mobile game franchise, it’s done in an extremely adorable way, thanks to the tiny hatchlings explaining what the Easter Bunny does for the holiday. Seriously, they’re almost unbearably cute. Read More »

Eastbound & Down wrapped up its fourth and final season in 2013, but Danny McBride fans with HBO subscriptions will have something new to look forward this summer. Vice Principals stars McBride and Walton Goggins as a pair of (you guessed it) vice principals who work together at Lincoln High. Although “together” might not exactly be the right word here, seeing as they’re more interested in destroying each other than in collaborating with one another. Watch the hilarious first Vice Principals teaser trailer after the jump. Read More »
