Mark Englert Parks and Recreation Print

It’s been a few years since Parks and Recreation came a close, leaving the Pawnee National Park in the fully capable hands of none other than Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman). And if you’ve been hoping to commemorate that beautiful moment when the government naysayer finally got his dream job in his hometown, then we have good news.

Shortly after Parks and Recreation came to an end, artist Mark Englert teamed up with Bottleneck Gallery to release a limited edition poster celebrating Pawnee National Park. It sold out pretty quickly and it’s been quite the coveted print among collectors for some time. But now you have your chance to get your hands on an official reprint of the beautiful piece in question, and your money will go to support the Los Angeles Fire Department as they continue to battle the devastating wildfires in California.

green book director interview

The Farrelly Brothers became the kings of comedy in the ‘90s with Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin and There’s Something About Mary. However, Green Book is Peter Farrelly’s first solo film and his first drama.

Based on a true story, the film follows Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) as he gets a job as a driver for Dr. Shirley (Mahershala Ali). While Shirley tours the south with his jazz trio, he needs a savvy problem solver to bail him out of jams that may come up between gigs in racist communities. The “green book” of the title is the guide to southern hotels that accept black people.

Peter Farrelly spoke with /Film by phone about making Green Book. He elaborated on how the film consolidated the real life road trip Tony and Dr. Shirley took and shared some stories that didn’t make it into the film. Green Book is now playing in select theaters and opens wide Wednesday, November 21.

ralph breaks the internet clip

Ralph Breaks the Internet is one of Disney’s most hotly anticipated animated projects this year, riding high off the acclaim and success of the nostalgic 2012 film. But as highly anticipated as Ralph Breaks the Internet is, nothing from the Wreck-It Ralph sequel has made more buzz than the Disney Princess scene.

The scene has been talked about since it debuted at last year’s D23 Expo, and has been the source of most of the hype (and some of the controversy) around the film. The marketing has smartly included a little of that scene in nearly every trailer, but until now, we’ve only seen snippets. Now, just a few days before Ralph Breaks the Internet hits theaters, it’s going to do a little internet-breaking of its own with the release of the full Disney Princess Ralph Breaks Internet clip.

Jason Mantzoukas Interview

People who watch lots of movies start to recognize character actors from role to role, especially in comedies, when a funny guy or woman keeps showing up. Jason Mantzoukas has been one of those reliable actors stealing scenes in movies like Baby Mama, The Dictator, The House, Sleeping with Other People and more. But in The Long Dumb Road, Mantzoukas finally takes the lead.

The Long Dumb Road premiered at Sundance this year, and is now playing select theaters and VOD. In the film, Mantzoukas plays Richard, a mechanic who, just after getting fired, helps Nat (Tony Revolori) with a broken down car and rides with him to college as they have a series of road trip misadventures. Mantzoukas took the time to speak with /Film about his lead role, his role in John Wick 3, and of course, the beloved movie podcast How Did This Get Made?, on which he’s been a regular with Paul Scheer and June Diane Raphael since 2010.

Steve Carell Hosted Saturday Night Live

It’s been 10 years since Steve Carell hosted Saturday Night Live, and in recent years, the actor hasn’t dabbled in comedy much. Instead, he’s spent time taking on more dramatic roles, so it was nice to see him get back into sketch comedy, even if the episode didn’t give him a whole lot to work with. But that’s not to say there aren’t some good laughs, even though most of the sketches don’t bring much to the table overall.

Let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the Steve Carell hosted Saturday Night Live below.

a christmas prince a royal wedding trailer

‘Tis the season for stuffing us with as many sweet confections and cheesy Christmas movies as our bodies can handle. And Netflix is living up to the task of providing us with the latter, blessing us with a Christmas movie sequel we never knew we needed burned in our brains immediately.

Last year’s cliche-ridden holiday mega-hit A Christmas Prince is getting a sequel, titled (what else) A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding. And naturally, in the aftermath of one of the biggest royal weddings of the century, it’s a thinly-veiled Meghan Markle metaphor. See A Christmas Prince The Royal Wedding trailer below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Wallace and Gromit studio

In 2018, huge media corporations are like those rolling cities in Mortal Engines: they’re always on the hunt for a smaller company to consume. But Aardman Animations, the stop-motion animation company responsible for projects like Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run, isn’t interested in being eaten up by a behemoth like Disney, Comcast, or WarnerMedia. In a preemptive move to make sure they don’t become the next 20th Century Fox, the founders of the company have given a 75% stake in Aardman to the people who deserve it most: its own employees.
