Big Mouth Season 3 Trailer

Big Mouth is coming back for a third season next month, and the first trailer for the all-new episodes has just arrived. When you see the hormone-fueled nastiness that’s in store for this season, you’ll be glad that the show has already been renewed for three more seasons after this. Nick (Nick Kroll), Andrew (John Mulaney), Jessi (Jessi Klein), Missy (Jenny Slate) and Jay (Jason Mantzoukas) are changing even more as they grow up, and that means new feelings, new hormone monsters, and much more.

Bodied Trailer

Joseph Kahn‘s Bodied chronicles the misadventures of a white battle rapper, Adam Merkin (Calum Worthy) who struggles with finding where to draw the line in terms of speech. The film is offensive, hilarious, and a ton of fun, winning a slew of awards during its run on the film festival circuit. Bodied landed on YouTube Premium last fall and today it’s out on iTunes and Blu-Ray.

I had a chance to chat with Joseph about what he thinks about the value of battle rap is for our society, as well as the challenges he encountered getting Bodied out into the world. Hit the jump to read excerpts of our conversation, which have been edited and condensed for clarity. You can also listen to the whole conversation in podcast form below.

birds of prey poster

A fun, colorful Birds of Prey poster just flew online, and I won’t lie: I dig it. I have no idea how Cathy Yan‘s upcoming DC film will turn out, but here’s hoping it’s as fun and vibrant as this poster, which puts Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn front and center while the rest of the cast flutters around her in a much smaller scale. See the poster below.

in the tall grass trailer

In the Tall Grass, the considerably nasty short story from Stephen King and son Joe Hill, just dropped its first trailer – and what an effective trailer it is. In the best horror tradition, In the Tall Grass takes something innocuous – in this case, an overgrown field – and makes it terrifying. Watch the incredibly creepy In the Tall Grass trailer below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Joseph Kahn is a legendary music video director, having created music videos for artists such as Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, and (most recently) Ava Max. But his recent film, Bodied, may be his most provocative work. In Bodied, a graduate student named Adam (Calum Worthy) realizes he has a talent for battle rapping, but discovers that his words inside the ring may have consequences beyond what he’d originally imagined.

Kahn is one of the most talented visual stylists of our age, so I was pleased to have the chance to chat with him recently about how he thinks about his filmmaking technique. We recorded a video broadcast in which he breaks down the opening sequence of Bodied shot by shot. Check out our talk after the jump. You can watch Bodied right now on YouTube Premium, or buy it on Blu-Ray or iTunes VOD.
