The Orville

If you’ve seen the TV spots for Seth MacFarlane’s new Fox series The Orville, you might think it’s another comedic romp from the creator of Family Guy and Ted. It is funny, but what the ads are not showing is that The Orville is an hour long spaceship drama that just happens to be populated with funny people (and aliens). On a Television Critics Association panel for The Orville, MacFarlane explained why The Orville needed to be more than a spoof of Star Trek and other sci-fi shows.

Logan Lucky Trailer

After planning three heists in Ocean’s Eleven, Ocean’s Twelve and Ocean’s Thirteen, the formerly retired Steven Soderbergh is back behind the camera for a new heist, and he’s brought his Magic Mike star with him.

Logan Lucky follows Channing Tatum as Jimmy Logan, a thirtysomething man fired from his job, looking to turn the bad luck of the Logan family around once and for all by pulling off a heist at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. But he’ll need the help of his reluctant, one-armed brother Clyde (Adam Driver) and an incarcerated robbery expert named Joe Bang (Daniel Craig) to help him out. It’s the kind of comedic crime you’d expect from Steven Soderbergh, and a new trailer just arrived with a bunch of new footage.

Logan Lucky trailer

Steven Soderbergh‘s “anti-glam Ocean’s 11” looks, to put it simply, like a blast. Based on the first footage from Logan Lucky, which arrived over the weekend, Daniel Craig‘s performance alone as Joe Bang may be worth the price of admission. We haven’t seen Craig quite like this before, and the same can be said for the rest of the stellar cast in Soderbergh’s blessed return to filmmaking.

Below, watch the Logan Lucky trailer.

The Orville Trailer

Star Trek has been lampooned countless times, whether it’s by Saturday Night Live, Futurama or the outstanding Galaxy Quest. Now it’s getting an indirect kind of spoof, if you will, in the form of a new FOX TV series from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

The Orville is a new one-hour sci-fi comedy series set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of the titular spaceship and its crew as they traverse the universe, dealing with the kind of workplace problems that come from having a crew composed of aliens and humans from different planets all aboard a single spaceship. FOX debuted The Orville trailer at their upfronts presentation today, and you can get a glimpse of the promising new show below. Read More »

Carpool Karaoke Trailer

Even if you’re not a regular viewer of The Late Late Show on CBS with host James Corden, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of his popular, consistently viral segment known as Carpool Karaoke. In the recurring segment, James Corden hops in a car with a famous celebrity, usually a chart-topping singer but sometimes just another figure in pop culture, and they cruise around Los Angeles jamming out to an assortment of songs in the car, just like you and me. This year, that segment gets its own series.

Carpool Karaoke: The Series will be the first programming endeavor for Apple as they start to expand into original programming. Last night the first trailer debuted in front of the perfect audience during the Grammys, which were hosted by James Corden, and featured a few of the famous faces that he’s shared a ride with before. The trailer shows that Corden won’t be hosting every episode, but there’s quite a cavalcade of talent from across the board to make up for it.

Wonderful Christmastime A Cappella

Sing is the latest animated comedy from Illumination Entertainment, and it’s in theaters now. If somehow after the onslaught of musically charged TV spots that have been all over the place this holiday season you weren’t aware of that, here’s another reminder.

The voice cast of Sing (including Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Seth MacFarlane and Tori Kelly) appeared on The Tonight Show to perform an a cappella version of Paul McCartney‘s signature holiday tune “Wonderful Christmastime” with the help of Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. Oh, and the former member of The Beatles popped up to help out too.

‘Sing’ Trailer: Any Animal Can Be a Rock Star

Sing Trailer

This weekend brings the animated musical Trolls to theaters, which means there’s no better time for Universal and Illumination Entertainment to push their own music-infused animated comedy, Sing.

An all-new Sing trailer has arrived, and as someone who has been skeptical about how this movie would turn out, I have to say that this most recent tease of the movie actually shows off some more enticing character and story details, showing that this is much more than a showcase of some famous pop tunes. It’s a little weird that Eminem’s “Sing for the Moment,” which samples Aerosmith’s “Dream On,” is used to market a kids movies, but whatever works, I guess.

Sing Trailer

Illumination Entertainment has a couple of new animated movies hitting theaters this year. The first is the animal adventure The Secret Life of Pets, arriving this summer. But just before Christmas, Illumination will get musical with Sing. In what is basically Zootopia meets American Idol, one koala (Matthew McConaughey) decides to put on a huge singing competition to save his theater, and some average animals with incredible pipes look at it as their opportunity for a better life. Of course, it’s all fueled by an endless array of popular songs from yesterday and today.

However, the project is both real and moving forward, as a few big actors have just signed up for the heist film.
