The Death of Stalin trailer

Anyone who’s seen HBO’s Veep, the 2009 film In The Loop, or the British TV series The Thick of It knows that writer/director Armando Iannucci has a biting and unique take on political comedy. His characters have a way of speaking that could be referred to as melodiously offensive, and it looks like he’s done it again with The Death of Stalin, which is only his second feature film. The movie earned rave reviews earlier this month at the Toronto International Film Festival, and now a new trailer has arrived to show us his caustic imagining of the fall of one of the world’s most brutal dictatorships.

the death of stalin trailer

If you’ve ever watched Veep or The Thick of It and wished you could see them done in a post-World War II Soviet Union, you’re in luck. Armando Iannucci, creator of the above foul-mouthed political comedies and director of The Thick of It’s film spin-off In the Loop, is bringing that same brand of crass comedy to Russia, with love.

The Death of Stalin follows what happens after, well, the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953 and the havoc it wreaks upon his hapless generals and advisers. It has Jeffrey Tambor bumbling around in a bad dark wig. What else do you need?

The Boss Baby teaser trailer

It’s a familiar joke that the baby is the real head of the household. Family life revolves around the whims of its youngest, most unpredictable member, and all the attention in the room immediately goes to him or her. But what if the baby weren’t just a metaphorical boss? What if the baby were a real boss, with a tiny business suit and a mean coffee addiction and the voice of Alec Baldwin and everything?

That’s the premise of The Boss Baby, the new animated comedy from DreamWorks. Baldwin voices a bratty little baby whose arrival upends the life of his older brother, 7-year-old Tim. Sadly, this is not an adaptation of Beck Bennett’s hilarious “office boss” recurring sketch from Saturday Night Live. Watch the Boss Baby teaser trailer below. Read More »

Horace and Pete

After surprising fans with a new web series called Horace and Pete earlier this year, comedian Louis C.K. has delivered 10 episodes of the series that isn’t really a straight-up comedy series. The project plays out more like a stage production with an interesting blend of comedy and drama, driven by some very compelling characters written by Louis C.K. himself.

But sadly, Louis C.K. has announced that the tenth episode of Horace and Pete, which hit the we earlier this month, would be the end of the series. In an e-mail with fans, the comedian gave a fond farewell and thanks to all who worked on the project and gushed about how happy he was for his fans to receive it with open arms. Find out more about the Horace and Pete ending after the jump. Read More »

The Cobbler Adam Sandler

Normally, a new Adam Sandler movie would arrive with some massive fanfare. That’s not particularly the case with The Cobbler, a supernatural comedy with a star-studded cast that opens March 13. Sandler plays a New York City shoe repairman who develops an ability to literally become a person by putting on their shoes. Among those people are Dan Stevens, Method Man, and there are roles for Dustin Hoffman, Ellen Barkin and Steve Buscemi.

It’s a pretty great cast from a pretty great director, Thomas McCarthy, and you can watch the latest The Cobbler trailer below. Read More »

Reservoir_Dogs

Every once in a while, something amazing pops up on the internet, maybe a piece of history from a time before WiFi and iPhones, something most of us never imagined we’d get to see. Old interviews, behind the scenes documentaries and sometimes even set footage from movies of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s occasionally appear online and it’s like Christmas all over again.

Christmas is back today as someone has uncovered an eight minute video of Quentin Tarantino and Steve Buscemi rehearsing scenes from Reservoir Dogs. This is incredible, fly on the wall stuff. Check it out below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Adam Sandler

Many audiences probably feel like they’ve got a pretty good lock on what an Adam Sandler film will offer, and for the most part they’re right. But every once in a while the comedian goes for something a little more serious — films like Punch-Drunk Love, Spanglish, and Funny People aren’t all that plentiful on his resume, but they are there.

His next deviation from absurd comedy will be The Cobbler, from The Station Agent and Win Win director Tom McCarthy. The film also features an eclectic supporting cast, with appearances from Dustin Hoffman, Method Man, Melonie Diaz, Ellen Barkin, Dan Stevens and Steve Buscemi. Sandler plays “a lonely New York shoe repairman” who happens across an object that literally lets him “walk in another man’s shoes.”

The first image doesn’t really show the magic, but it does give you Sandler in a mode that looks far enough from Grown Ups that it’s worth a look for those who prefer the actor’s more dramatic stuff. Read More »
