Hotel Artemis Review

This week brings Hotel Artemis to theaters, marking the directorial debut of Iron Man 3 writer Drew Pearce. Set in a world reiminiscent of John Wick, our story unfolds in and around a hotel for criminals ran by Jodie Foster. She’s surrounded by an ensemble that includes the likes of Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista. But is that enough to make for a praiseworthy action flick?

Hotel Artemis Red Band Trailer

Hey, did you forget that there’s a new action thriller coming out that takes place in a criminal for hospitals and stars Jodie Foster, Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Jeff Goldblum, Brian Tyree Henry, Jenny Slate, Zachary Quinto, Charlie Day, and Dave Bautista? If you did, this is your official, bloody reminder.

Hotel Artemis has just debuted a new red band trailer to show off the violent shenanigans in store from this movie that feels like it should take place in the John Wick universe (even though, sadly, it doesn’t). Jodie Foster leads the cast as the nurse of this hospital for criminals on the run, but there’s a strict set of rules to follow if you want to be treated, and it looks like one of her latest customers is about to catch the attention of some dangerous people who are ready to break all the rules.

Jenny Slate Muppet Babies

Muppet Babies, Jim Henson’s 1980s animated TV series that imagined Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy, and his other lovable Muppets as toddlers, is being rebooted on Disney Junior. Last month, we got a quick look at one of the show’s new characters, and today, we’ve learned that the show has hired someone to play one of its key roles: Jenny Slate (Obvious Child, Landline) will provide the voice of Miss Nanny, the Muppet caretaker who – as in the original series – will only be seen from the torso down.

Learn more about Slate’s version of the character below, and check out a video of the actress talking about her history with the show.

Aardvark trailer

In Aardvark, Jenny Slate plays a therapist who begins a relationship with Jon Hamm, the brother of one of her patients (Zachary Quinto). But while Quinto’s character is the one in therapy, Hamm might be the person with issues.

Life truly can be stranger than fiction. In The Polka King, based on a true story, Jack Black plays Jan Lewan, a real-life polka dancer who fell from grace after he conned an entire town with a Ponzi scheme.

The Polka King, a black comedy that Netflix bought after it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, has released a first trailer, and it lives up to its wacky premise. There’s Jack Black in a blonde wig and a Polish accent, Jenny Slate rightfully crowned as a beauty queen, and a lot of dancing.
