Adult Wolf

When MTV unveiled their new take on Teen Wolf in 2011, their efforts were initially met with eyerolls from folks old enough to remember the original Teen Wolf. The new series didn’t bear much of a resemblance to its ostensible source material, which had been a somewhat cheesy ’80s comedy. If anything, the new show was much more like the angsty Twilight, with its ripped, frequently shirtless shapeshifters.

But perhaps it’s for the best that MTV took the property in an entirely different direction after all. Because according to Jack Black‘s new Teen Wolf sequel Adult Wolf, Scott Howard’s life went on a steep downward trajectory after adolescence. ”Back in high school I had it all: Brains, skills, girls, but after graduation, everything just fell apart,” he reflects. “Now I’ve got no job, no girlfriend, and one very annoying roommate.” Check out the “sizzle reel” after the jump.

Recount Movie Trailer

Recount

Last month we brought you the teaser trailer for Recount, HBO Films’ retelling of the behind-the-scenes happenings during the 2000 presidential election and the scandal that resulted. /Film reader Linton sent us the full length trailer for the upcoming film.

Written by 33-year old actor turned screenwriter Danny Strong, Recount was the top film on the 2007 Black List, an annual poll of 150 development executives and high-level assistants which ranks the hot screenplays making the rounds in Hollywood. The top three entries of the 2005 list where Things We Lost in the Fire, Juno, and Lars and the Real Girl. So it’s definitely a great list to be on. Directed by Jay Roach (Meet The Parents, Austin Powers), and starring Kevin Spacey stars as Ron Klain, former Vice President Al Gore’s Chief of Staff, John Hurt as Warren Christopher, who supervised the contested Florida recount, Laura Dern as Katherine Harris, former Secretary of State for the State of Florida, Tom Wilkinson as James Baker and Denis Leary as Michael Whouley.
