The Pride Lands are ready to welcome a new generation of heroes. Disney Channel is making plans for The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar, a Lion King spinoff TV movie intended to launch a new TV series.
The Lion Guard will bring back some familiar faces, and even some familiar voices to go along with them. Rob Lowe and Gabrielle Union will play Simba and Nala, and James Earl Jones and Ernie Sabella return from the original film as Mufasa and Pumbaa. Max Charles (young Peter Parker from The Amazing Spider-Man) plays the new lead, Simba and Nala’s second-born cub Kion.

Hot on the heels of NBC’s trailers for their line-up of new TV series hitting the small screen this fall, Fox has chimed in with a sneak peek at some of the new shows they have in the works for the new season as well. New programming includes comedies starring Rob Lowe (Parks and Recreation) and John Stamos (Full House) as well as the crime drama Rosewood. Below you’ll also find the trailers for the series adaptation of Minority Report and the comic book adaptation Lucifer, which we featured on their own yesterday.

In Sex Tape, Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel play a couple desperately trying to keep their racy video from being seen by anyone. But Sony, of course, wants just the opposite for the film itself. So the studio has put out a new Sex Tape green-band trailer, all the better to appeal to those who couldn’t see that last red-band trailer.
The new edit swaps out some of the sex scenes and F-bombs, replacing them with tamer bits of new footage. It retains the same general structure and ribald sense of humor, though. Watch it after the jump.

This is literally the worst news we’ve heard about Parks & Recreation in quite some time. Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe, who play “beautiful, naive, sophisticated newborn baby” Ann Perkins and “finely tuned microchip” Chris Traeger, respectively, are set to leave the NBC comedy during its upcoming sixth season. Hit the jump to find out when they’ll make their last appearances.

Steven Soderbergh‘s retirement has turned out to be more of a transition. While he’s done with theatrical features for now, he’s as active as ever on the small screen. Just last week, he was talking up his plans to adapt John Barth’s The Sot-Weed Factor into a 12-hour miniseries.
Perfectly positioned to mark that switch from the big screen to the small one is Behind the Candelabra, an HBO film about the rather bizarre romance between the famed pianist (played with flirty, flamboyant charm by Michael Douglas) and his much younger lover Scott Thorson (a wide-eyed Matt Damon). The first full-length trailer has finally hit the web, and you can check it out after the jump.

Rob Lowe fans have one man to thank for their favorite actor not retiring: Legendary Eighties Hollywood agent Warren Klein. If we’re lead to believe the latest voicemail released by Funny or Die, Rob Lowe was so upset that Tom Hulce beat him out for the lead role in Milos Forman’s Amadeus, he was seriously considering quitting acting. But good old Warren talked him down…after recounting a breakfast at Benihana with Pat Morita.
Unfortunately, Warren Klein wasn’t a real person. He’s just a character created by Funny or Die, but Lowe does lend his voice to the latest in a series of videos ripe with references sure to delight fans of Eighties pop culture. Listen below. Read More »

Last week we dropped the red-band trailer for I Melt With You, Mark Pellington‘s incredibly divisive thriller about four longtime pals (Rob Lowe, Tom Jane, Jeremy Piven, and Christian McKay) who get together once a year for debauched, drug-fueled gatherings. Underlying the merriment, however, is a deeply disturbing secret that could change all of their lives.
If that trailer’s NSFW cursing and drug usage stopped you from checking it out last time, don’t worry — we have a green-band trailer for you today that’s pretty much the same thing with the F-bombs and cocaine edited out. Check it out after the jump.

There are films I want to watch because they’re universally beloved, others I want to watch out of a morbid curiosity because they’re widely reviled, and then, occasionally, there are those that pique my curiosity because they seem to be a little bit of both. Perhaps the most divisive film out of this year’s Sundance was Mark Pellington‘s I Melt With You, a dramatic thriller about four longtime male friends (Rob Lowe, Tom Jane, Jeremy Piven, and Christian McKay) suffering from midlife crises who escape together for debauched gatherings. Which makes it sound like a crappy Tim Allen comedy, but apparently it’s all very serious and there’s a disturbing twist that turns the film into something deeply fucked up. Watch the red-band trailer and see the poster after the jump.

Sad as I am to see summer go, there is something I’m really looking forward to about the coming months, and that is the advent of the television’s regular season. After a long summer away from my imaginary friends in Pawnee, Greendale, and Lima, I’m eager to check back in and see what the new premieres have to offer. Hit the jump to see:
- The beginnings of a triple-Tammy drink-off in a preview for Parks & Recreation Season 4

Jamie Chung has two big Legendary Pictures films behind her this year, Sucker Punch and The Hangover Part II, and now (probably not as a response) she’s going indie for the film Knife Fight. That’s the one starring Rob Lowe where he plays “a political crisis manager who specializes in playing hardball on behalf of scandal-plagued clients.” Jamie Chung will be his savvy assistant. Quite a few other people are in talks for roles, too: Julie Bowen, Connie Britton, Jennifer Morrison, Rebecca Mader and Titus Welliver. Bill Guttentag directs and co-wrote the script with Chris Lehane; the film will shoot next month in San Francisco, and a release is planned for October 2012, timed around the next US Presidential election.
Before Knife Fight makes it to theaters, Jamie Chung will be in Premium Rush, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and was written and directed by David Koepp. [Variety]
