Future Man early buzz

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the world’s best video game player is recruited to fight in a battle to save the planet. That’s the plot of an increasing number of movies including The Last Starfighter, but now it’s also the plot of a new Hulu series called Future Man that hails from producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. But this show isn’t just a direct copy of The Last Starfighter: it also pays homage to Back to the Future, Top Gun, and lots of other ’80s classics while doing its own thing along the way.

The first reviews have hit the web, so gather around to read the Future Man early buzz before the show officially premieres later this month.

the boys tv show

The Boys, an adaptation of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s anti-hero comic series, has moved around in Hollywood so frequently that I’m surprised I haven’t seen a moving truck driving across town with its comic covers plastered on the side. But after years of circling the city, that truck has finally found a permanent parking spot: Amazon Studios has just picked up the series for an eight episode first season.

future man trailer

With This is the End, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg achieved a tricky balancing act – they made a crude comedy that also functioned as a clever and frequently thrilling horror story. That particular skill set looks like it’ll come in hand for their new Hulu series Future Man, which looks to blend dick jokes and action-packed science fiction shenanigans.

Will the blend work this time around? How far can Rogen, Goldberg, and series star Josh Hutcherson push these disparate genres until they shatter? The Future Man trailer offers our first look at what could be one of 2017’s weirdest TV shows.

Sausage Party Oscars Campaign

Sausage Party (coming to Blu-ray and DVD on November 8) is already a success, having pulled in $135 million worldwide on a budget of just $19 million, not to mentions an 83% on Rotten Tomatoes. But that’s not enough for Sony Pictures, writers Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, and directors Conrad Vernon & Greg Tiernan. No, they’re looking to get some awards love as well.

Sausage Party Featurette

The final numbers for this past weekend’s box office aren’t in yet, but it looks like Sausage Party will have raked in just over $33 million. That’s an impressive debut for an R-rated animated comedy, especially opening up against the second weekend of blockbuster like Suicide Squad. It appears audiences were interested in something that was truly original and went against the grain of what’s been playing on most screens all summer.

Now a new Sausage Party featurette dives into one of the most important elements of the movie, though it’s not a piece you’d immediately recognize as being integral to a movie like this. Since Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg aren’t animators, it should come as no surprise that they brought in experienced animation directors Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan to helm the feature. But what’s truly surprising is they got Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, best known for his work on The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, to compose the score and the opening musical number in the grocery store. The filmmakers and composer talk about their approach to the score in a new Sausage Party featurette. Read More »

Sausage Party Review

Note: With Sausage Party in theaters this weekend, we’re re-running our review from San Diego Comic-Con.

Seth Rogen has said on a number of occasions that the desire to make his own animated movie came from a love for Pixar movies. Even though he didn’t exactly grow up on them as a child (he was already 14 when the first Toy Story arrived in 1995), he’s still loved them immensely as an adult. However, if Rogen was going to attempt to make his version of a Pixar movie, you know it wasn’t going to be anywhere near family friendly.

Sausage Party had a special screening here at Comic-Con last night, and the final result of years of development, test screenings and hard work is an outrageous comedy that brings the laughs hard, and all the most raunchy and raw hilarity hasn’t even been touched by the movie’s marketing.

Sausage Party Review

Sausage Party is a hard-R comedy. Around the time the project was first announced, actor, producer, and co-writer Seth Rogen described it as “an R-rated Pixar-style movie” that’s “fucking filthy” and “really, really, really dirty.” Pretty much everyone who has seen the film, including our own Jacob Hall, agrees with Rogen that it truly is one dirty movie. The film is R-rated, but Rogen and all involved had to make some cuts to secure that rating.

Below, learn what was removed to take the Sausage Party rating down to an R instead of an NC-17.
