first preacher footage

This week AMC presented a panel on Preacher for the Television Critics Association. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and showrunner Sam Catlin were on the panel with cast members to discuss their adaptation of Garth Ennis’s comic. Fans will notice the show diverge from the comics immediately in the pilot, which Ennis himself approved.

“We talked with Garth and Garth very much encouraged us to make a lot of small changes and make it a good show first and foremost,” Goldberg said. “We want fans to get everything they loved of the comic and still get some twists and turns.”  Read More »

Preacher trailer

Preacher has been battling to reach the screen in some form since the late ’90s, when Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s controversial, critically praised comic series was still a new kid on the block. Now, years after Kevin Smith and Sam Mendes and Mark Steven Johnson tried and failed to produce big screen and small screen versions, the infamous series is finally arriving as a show on AMC. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin are behind this incarnation. Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, and Joseph Gilgun are playing the story’s central heroes. And now, the first trailer for the series is here. Just be careful – people who associate with Preacher tend to get struck by lightning if they ever step near a church again.

The Night Before red-band trailer

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg didn’t quite get a chance to destroy Christmas last year thanks to the messy release of their film The Interview. Not that they’re still thinking about it or anything; it’s just one of the first cards that comes up in The Night Before red-band trailer.

This new Christmas comedy comes from director Jonathan Levine (50/50, The Wackness) and features Seth Rogen, Anthony Mackie, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as three friends who are spending their last Christmas together before life takes them all on their own separate paths. Their party night turns crazy thanks to the intersection of drugs and (we’re just guessing based on this trailer) their own anxieties about impending life changes. It’s a very funny trailer, with a church scene featuring Rogen and Jillian Bell scoring the biggest comic hit. Watch below.  Read More »
