Olsen Twins Fuller House

We’ve known since last summer that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would not be making an appearance on Netflix’s Full House revival series Fuller House. The twins won’t even be making a cameo as the singular child Michelle Tanner, but the character’s absence is said to be explained by the fact that she’s now a fashion mogul in New York City. That’s a nice little nod to the Olsens’ real-life career, which has been cited as the reason for their not getting involved in the new series. Until now.

John Stamos recently appeared on The Howard Stern Show where conversation turned to Fuller House. The actor who plays Uncle Jesse revealed a more humble reason as to why they didn’t end up appearing on the show. Plus, he also reveals what could have been an interesting solution to their lack of involvement. Read More »

Fuller House cast photos

As you know, the Tanner family is together again as the Netflix sequel series Fuller House is now in production. (See photos from the first day of shooting here.) The series is a continuation of the cheesy 1990s sitcom Full House with most of the original cast returning, with the exception of notable absences from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who originally played Michelle Tanner.

Today, however, Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos of Netflix offered an update, saying the Olsen twins could still appear in the series. He also talked about the filming of the first episode, which began this week. Find out about the possible Olsen Twins Fuller House return and more, after the jump.

Olsen Twins in Fuller House

Back in April, a big chunk of 90s nostalgia was announced to be revived when we learned Netflix had ordered Fuller House, a television series sequel to the hit sitcom Full House. Pretty much everyone from the original series was confirmed to come back in some capacity for this new series, with the exception of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. While producers had hoped that the duo responsible for playing Michelle Tanner, the youngest daughter in the family, would make an appearance, it doesn’t sound like it’s going to happen.

Get the details on the Olsen twins in Fuller House below. Read More »

Movie Trailer: ‘Beastly’

If /Film is anything, it’s a breeding ground for High School Musical fans. So we were all very understanding when Beastly, which stars HSM alum Vanessa Hudgens, was bumped from its original Summer 2010 release date to make way for Charlie St. Cloud, which stars Hudgens’ boyfriend, and fellow HSM alum, Zac Efron. Inside, we all breathed a sigh of relief that we wouldn’t have to let our box office dollar reveal our true alliance to either Team Gabriella or Team Troy (which, in case you don’t know, are their High School Musical character names).

Well Charlie St. Cloud came and gone and now it’s Beastly’s chance to shine. The film is a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast, if it was influenced by She’s All That and The Craft. Written and directed by Daniel Barnz, it stars Hudgens, Alex Pettyfer, Mary-Kate Olsen, Neil Patrick Harris and Peter Krause and opens March 18. Check out the trailer below and official plot description below. Read More »

The impending existence of the film Beastly, a modern and teen-centric version of Beauty and the Beast, had escaped me until now. But with the power of the teen dollar once again having been reasserted over the weekend, it’s time to get the promotions cranking for films that might siphon off a bit of that cashflow. And so here’s a brief teaser for Beastly. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Read More »

The Wackness Official Movie Trailer

The Wackness

Sony Pictures Classics has released a new trailer for one of my favorite films of the year – The Wackness. They’re calling it the “official trailer”, and I actually like it much more than the the previously released teasers. It plays equal attention the relationships between Peck, Thirlby, and Kingsley, the 1990’s nostalgia, and the incredible soundtrack. I could have done without the Mary-Kate Olsen button at the end, but I understand she might be a selling point.

Hunter points out that they probably should have played up some of the great critical reaction the film has gotten on the festival circuit. But at the same time I can understand that the target audience might not care about quotes from movie critics. I’m still waiting for the inevitable red band trailer. As I’ve said before, this film is a tough film to sell. Director Jonathan Levine told me that SPC was planning on doing a lot of word of mouth screenings to raise awareness. I think the best thing they could do is pack a theater with people and show them the film, as they will surely recommend it to ten of their friends.

The Wackness Movie Poster

The Wackness Movie Poster

Previously, Slashfilm lashed into Sony Pictures Classics for releasing a full-length trailer for The Wackness, a fave upcoming flick of the site, that shamefully sold the film as just another navel-ring piece of garbage starring an Olsen twin. Knowing full well who was in the movie, I still anticipated a cornrowed Bijou Phillips popping up and shaking her ass in the trailer at any second. Today, Cinematical received the new one-sheet for the little indie that should send director Jonathan Levine (All the Boys Love Mandy Lane) trail blazing a la Jason Reitman, and thankfully it’s not a complete disaster.

One of the marketing aspects that SPC needs to stress and failed to with the trailer is the film’s 1994 time period. The poster clearly does a better job of this with the taglines, the retro color scheme and the appropriately corny off-kilter cityscape. I’m not sure the cassette title design could be worked in here, but I hope it’s played up more in the weeks up to come. While this one-sheet could always benefit from a “Don’t believe the trailer, this movie’s really great!” Slashfilm pull quote, at least Mary-Kate isn’t hovering over skyscrapers frozen in a dance routine like a malnourished Mick Jagger. The Wackness opens July 3rd. Click the poster above to enlarge.
