Grant Morrison Interview

Grant Morrison’s comic Happy! was an unusual choice for a TV series. The initial limited run had to be expanded considerably, especially since Nick (Christopher Meloni) survived the first season, leaving room for a second season. So Happy! is back in all new uncharted territory.

Nick has retired from the force and Happy (Patton Oswalt) is now his imaginary friend, having disappeared from Hailey (Bryce Lorenzo). Smoothie (Patrick Fischler) and Sonny Shine (Christopher Fitzgerald) have a new evil plot involving Easter, so Nick and Happy will have to stop them. And it begins with suicide bomber nuns.

Morrison called from Scotland to speak with /Film about the new season of Happy! It was just announced that he is helping Ezra Miller write a new script for The Flash movie, and he’s also a writer and producer of USA’s Brave New World series. Issue 5 of his new Green Lantern comic is out now and Happy! returns Wednesday, March 27 on Syfy. Naturally, we talk about all of this in the interview.

Bill and Ted Face the Music Cast

William Sadler has enjoyed a successful career as a recognizable character actor. He’s had key supporting roles in the likes of The Shawshank Redemption, RocketMan, Kinsey, The Green Mile, August Rush, and Iron Man 3. More recently, he’s been spending a lot of time on television in shows like Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Power, Berlin Station, and Our Cartoon President. But he’s about to go back to one of his most famous roles from nearly 30 years ago, and we’re not talking about Die Hard 2.

The long-anticipated Bill and Ted Face the Music recently announced the start of production later this year with an eye towards hitting theaters in 2020. We’ve known Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves would be back as William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. and Theodore “Ted” Logan for a long time, and now we know they’ll have company from at least one of the characters from their past. William Sadler will be back as Death. Read More »

What We Do in the Shadows Showrunner Interview

What We Do In the Shadows was a funny vampire comedy that Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement made in New Zealand, but it made a splash worldwide. They hooked up with Flight of the Conchords writer/producer Paul Simms to bring the series to American television. Now, FX’s What We Do In The Shows introduces a new house of vampires living in New York. The series maintains the film’s mockumentary style, which makes What We Do In The Shadows a spoof of reality TV as well as vampire lore.

Simms spoke with /Film by phone out of Austin, where he was about to premiere the first episodes of the series at SXSW. What We Do In The Shadows premieres March 27 on FX.

holmes and watson clip

Remember Holmes and Watson? There’s a good chance you don’t – the film didn’t screen for critics last year, and the critics who went and saw it on their own weren’t kind. The movie came and went, eventually going on to “win” several Golden Raspberry Awards. And now it’s coming to Blu-ray and digital! I’ve heard from several people that despite its reputation, Holmes and Watson is actually quite funny – in an extremely silly way. You can decide for yourself soon. In the meantime, check out an exclusive Holmes and Watson clip below, showcasing some of the film’s bloopers.

to all the boys i've loved before sequel director

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before became one of Netflix’s biggest hits last year, shepherded by director Susan Johnson, who leant a playfulness and a surprising visual panache to the teen romantic comedy based on the novels by Jenny Han. But for the highly anticipated sequel, which will adapt Han’s follow-up novel P.S. I Still Love You, the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel director will now be cinematographer Michael Fimognari.

killing eve season 2 review

TV’s most complicated, twisted relationship returns with Killing Eve season 2. Phoebe Waller-Bridge‘s unclassifiable series comes back strong, roaring out of the gate mere seconds after season 1 concluded, and almost never letting viewers catch their breath. This season, Waller-Bridge has stepped back a bit, with Emerald Fennell stepping in as head writer. Anyone worried that this change-up might alter the show significantly can rest assured, as Killing Eve is better than ever.
