Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon will make more impersonations and maybe have another personal revelation or two in The Trip to Spain. They’re once again again playing versions of themselves for director Michael Winterbottom, who directed them in The Trip and The Trip to Italy. For their next adventure, they’ll perhaps get on each other’s nerves now and then (and make us laugh) while drinking some fine Spanish wine.
Below, watch The Trip to Spain teaser trailer.

Oren Moverman is a hell of a storyteller. Love & Mercy, The Messenger, Rampart, and I’m Not There are movies fueled by beauty and pain. The emotions are almost always palpable in his stories. The Academy Award-nominated screenwriter has directed another film, The Dinner, which reunites him with his Time Out of Mind star, Richard Gere.

Following the trailer for the Showtime series I’m Dying Up Here, we have a look at another fascinating glimpse into the world of stand-up comedy, this time one from the real world.
Dying Laughing is a new documentary that feels like it should have been called I’m Dying Up Here, because it features one-on-one interviews with stand-up comedians like Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Cedric The Entertainer, Russell Peters, the late Garry Shandling and more, all talking about their worst experiences on stage. These are the times when the bombed, died, crashed and all the other words which describe the worst thing that can happen to a comedian on stage: not getting laughs.

Nowadays, in addition to our entertainment on TV and in movie theaters, people get their comedy from internet videos featuring cats scared of cucumbers or YouTube stars talking directly into the camera who end up getting deals at Netflix. But decades ago, from 1927 to 1950, one of the most reliable sources of laughter were the films of comedy duo Laurel and Hardy. And now part of their story will be told in a new biopic at BBC Films.
Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly have been tapped to star in the Laurel and Hardy movie, respectively, in a film that focuses on the later part of their career when their time as the kings of comedy was behind them. Find out more below. Read More »
Pretty much everyone knows Minions is going to be a big hit. The wild, yellow characters are incredibly popular with kids and adults alike, so the fact they’ve got their own movie hitting theaters this summer is a slam dunk. At this point, it comes down to one thing: is the movie good? If it isn’t, the film will still be a success. But if it is good, it could be one of the biggest animated films of all time. The Minions are that well-liked.
A new 3-plus-minute trailer obviously can’t speak to the film’s quality, but it can speak to its scope (very big), its humor (silly, with an adult edge) and its voice cast (incredibly impressive). The film is set 42 years before the events of the first Despicable Me, which pretty much makes it a period piece, too. Minions opens July 10, watch the latest trailer below. Read More »

This new HAPPYish trailer is infinitely more entertaining. It indicates a lot more of the show’s moment to moment comedy, and reveals more variety in Coogan’s performance. This is the one to check out, and you can do so after the break. Read More »
Here’s a teaser for the new Showtime comedy HAPPYish, which premieres in April. The show stars Steve Coogan as Thom Payne, a mid-40s guy who has to deal with a young new boss who throws around business buzzwords with alarming freedom.
