Venom jenny slate

Sony teamed up with Marvel Studios to allow Spider-Man to swing over into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that doesn’t mean that Sony is content to give up their entire piece of the superhero pie. They still own the rights to dozens of characters in the Spider-Man pantheon, and they’re crafting their own separate universe with films like Silver and Black that will try to stand on their own without the web-slinger getting involved. Good luck with that, right?

But while that sounds like a misguided idea, I must admit that they’re making some interesting choices so far. First up for them is a Venom solo film, which has slowly gathered an unexpectedly terrific cast. Tom Hardy is playing the title character, and now the latest addition to this cast might make you raise an eyebrow: Jenny Slate (Obvious Child) is now in talks for a Venom role.

big mouth trailer

Puberty is the worst, but at least you can laugh about it thanks to Nick Kroll‘s new animated comedy series, Big Mouth.

The Netflix comedy follows the pitfalls of growing up as a teen dealing with raging hormones in the American suburbs, and features some of today’s funniest comedians voicing the animated teenagers. Netflix has released a few videos teasing the hormone monsters and “monstresses” plaguing these young teens, but the official trailer for Big Mouth has just dropped.

Landline trailer

Director Gillian Robespierre’s Obvious Child was such a pleasant surprise for a lot of people back in 2014 that news she was reuniting with star Jenny Slate for a new movie called Landline was greeted with cheers. Amazon Studios picked up the film and has debuted the first trailer for the dramedy, which is set in 1995 and focuses on a dysfunctional family with parents played by John Turturro and Edie Falco. But even with a cast made up of industry vets, it sounds like the film’s largely unknown youngest cast member may be the one who steals the movie.

The Lego Batman Movie featurette

Batman may fancy himself a lone wolf type, but he has a recurring habit of getting roped into teams. Like the Justice League, in this fall’s Justice League, or the Bat family, in next month’s The Lego Batman Movie. A new “behind the bricks” featurette gets up close and personal with Lego Batman and his teammates, including Robin (Michael Cera), Batgirl (Rosario Dawson), and Alfred (Ralph Fiennes). Meanwhile, Lego Joker (Zach Galifianakis) and Harley Quinn (Jenny Slate) just seem to be lounging around their lair, waiting for Batman to notice them.  Read More »

The LEGO Batman Movie TV Spots

LEGO Batman may have a mansion, plenty of wonderful toys, and a loyal butter, but he has zero friends. The caped crusader keeps busy saving Gotham and doesn’t have the best social skills, so he’s a bit of a loner in desperate need of a pal. The LEGO Batman Movie — which director Chris McKay describes as a cross between Michael Mann and About a Boy — follows Batman on his quest for happiness.

Below, watch The Lego Batman Movie TV spots.

The LEGO Batman Movie TV Spot

We’re just a little over a month away from the release of The LEGO Batman Movie, giving us the building block version of The Dark Knight, who stole more than a few scenes in The LEGO Movie a few years back. Will Arnett is back in the lead voice role, and quite the assembly of talent surrounds him, playing various characters from Batman’s mythology, some of which we’ve never seen on the big screen before. But a new TV spot focuses on one of Batman’s staple characters, his loyal sidekick Robin.

Michael Cera voices The Boy Wonder, but this version of Batman is just as resistant to working with a partner (or anyone really), simply because he’s afraid of losing anyone who gets close to him again. It’s actually kind of sweet, even if LEGO Batman isn’t a fan of hugs. You’ll see what I mean in a new The LEGO Batman Movie TV spot after the jump. Read More »

marc webb's gifted trailer starring chris evans

Before he made the critically slammed The Amazing Spider-Man films, director Marc Webb was a darling of the indie film world. A music video and commercial director who broke onto the movie scene with the fantastic 500 Days of Summer. He returned to the more moderately-budgeted world of dramatic films (read: less studio and producer meddling) and reuniting with Fox Searchlight for his next film Gifted.

Chris Evans (Captain America) stars as a single father raising a child prodigy played by Mckenna Grace (Independence Day: Resurgence, Designated Survivor) and the struggle for him to retain custody. The movie has an excellent cast which also includes Jenny Slate, Octavia Spencer, and Lindsay Duncan. Watch the Gifted trailer now embedded below.

My Blind Brother trailer

NBC’s Parks and Recreation ended at the exact right time, but that doesn’t mean we don’t miss it now that it’s gone. So if you’re still in mourning, you may find some comfort in the new trailer for My Blind Brother. Sophie Goodhart‘s indie drama stars not one, not two, but three former Pawneeans caught in a love triangle. Nick Kroll, the former Douche, gets to play the nice guy this time, while Adam Scott steps up as the douchey one. The two guys play brothers after the same woman, played by Jenny Slate. Watch the My Blind Brother trailer after the jump.
