If you haven’t taken the time to watch the first season of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix, stop what you’re doing, take a few hours to binge through all 13 of the episodes, and then come back. Because today we have the first trailer for the second season of the comedy series from 30 Rock creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock.
Ellie Kemper is back as the young, clueless woman still adjusting to life in New York City after escaping the bunker of a wacky cult who had convinced her that the world had ended. This time Kimmy is on the hunt for a new job, maybe a new man, and still has plenty of new adventures with her roommate Titus (Tituss Burgess) and former employer turned peculiar friend Jacqueline (Jane Krakowski).

The conflicts in Afghanistan and Pakistan are no laughing matter, but that’s what makes Whiskey Tango Foxtrot look like such an intriguing and promising concept. Based on journalist Kim Barker‘s wartime memoir The Taliban Shuffle, the film follows Tina Fey as an American reporter who decides to take her talents to the Middle East for the first time, learning first-hand the challenges of being a woman in the area.
A new Whiskey Tango Foxtrot trailer has just arrived, showing off what looks like it could be a thoroughly entertaining and poignant movie about the Middle East like we’ve never seen before. Read More »
If the second big screen team up of Amy Poehler and Tina Fey in Sisters wasn’t quite as good as you hoped, then maybe teaming up one-half of the comedienne duo with MMA champion turned actress Ronda Rousey will do the trick. Universal Pictures has just picked up a comedy pitch called Do Nothing Bitches that will have Fey and Rousey co-starring. Read More »

A few months ago, it was announced that Sesame Street would be leaving PBS after 45 years and taking up new residence at HBO. Today, the first trailer for the iconic children show’s 46th season has arrived and despite the new network, there aren’t any executions or sequences of full-frontal nudity to be found. At least not on first glance. And we’re talking about humans, because Big Bird and Elmo are, technically, always completely naked.
But let’s move on before we fall down that horrifying rabbit hole. Watch the new Sesame Street HBO trailer after the jump.

The last new episode of Saturday Night Live in 2015 hit the air last night, and with it came two favorite cast members returning to Studio 8H as hosts. However, despite the fact that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler both pulled hosting duties last night for the usually delightful episode that happens just before Christmas, this episode just didn’t quite pack the punch that it should have. There were still some solid sketches and a couple of cool surprises, but overall, this was just an average episode.
We review each and every sketch from the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Saturday Night Live episode below! Read More »

As Sisters prepares to go head-to-head with Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the box office this weekend, Paramount has dropped the first trailer for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Tina Fey leads the war comedy about a journalist sent to Afghanistan on assignment. Initially out of her element, she adjusts to the wild, adrenaline-fueled atmosphere.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is based on the memoir by former Chicago Tribune reporter Kim Barker, and directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Crazy, Stupid, Love.) Also starring are Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton, Alfred Molina, and Christopher Abbott also star. Hit the jump to see the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot trailer. Read More »

Most of the big studio releases have run like hell from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and with good reason: even the most conservative estimates have the film not just breaking, but shattering box office records. But through it all, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler‘s Sisters has stood firm. “We said we’d only do the movie if it opened against Star Wars,” Poehler joked last year. “We’re not scared. It’s what gets us up in the morning: We are going to f—ing crush Star Wars.”
Of course, the truth is that Sisters doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of beating Star Wars at the box office. So now Fey and Poehler’s film is adopting the “if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em” strategy. Instead of trying to convince audiences to pick Sisters over Star Wars, they’re helpfully reminding audiences that “#YouCanSeeThemBoth.” And that they’re really not so different. Sisters even has a making-of featurette, just like Star Wars, that trumpets the film’s rich history, practical effects, and legendary cast and crew, including director “J.J…ason Moore.” Watch the Sisters featurette after the jump.

Next month, it feels like everyone in the world will be heading to the movies to catch Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But there are plenty of people who simply don’t give a damn about the sci-fi franchise and may be in the mood for something completely different. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have you covered.
Sisters brings the Saturday Night Live veterans together on the big screen yet again, following their team-up on Baby Mama and their brief cameo in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. But this time they’re really cutting loose by throwing one last huge party in the house their parents just sold, and you can see how it goes in the new Sisters international trailer. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We’ve got one more episode of Saturday Night Live left in November with Matthew McConaughey taking the stage of Studio 8H as host (Elizabeth Banks just hosted this past weekend for a great episode), but it looks like December is going to send the sketch show out of 2015 with a bang.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will be hosting the final episode of the year on December 19th — just in time to promote their comedy Sisters, which is going up against Star Wars: The Force Awakens to serve as counter-programming for those who don’t care about Jedi or Wookiees. And joining them will be the Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen, as musical guest.
But they’re not the only ones hitting SNL in December. A Marvel superhero and a gifted driver will be hosting as well. Read More »

While most movies have scrambled to get the hell away from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Tina Fey‘s new comedy Sisters planted a flag on December 18, 2015 last year and hasn’t budged. “We said we’d only do the movie if it opened against Star Wars,” joked Fey’s co-star Amy Poehler. “We are going to fucking crush Star Wars.”
And while that prediction seems, uh, pretty far-fetched, Fey apparently isn’t intimidated by Disney’s other upcoming offerings, either. She’ll face off against the studio again in March, as her upcoming Afghanistan War comedy (formerly titled Taliban Shuffle) has just staked out a release against Disney’s Zootopia. Read More »
