The Netflix film stars Duplass and Ray Romano as neighbors who hang out and goof off together after one of them is diagnosed with a terminal illness. Check out the trailer below.

Every Disney princess deserves their big sweeping solo song, and in Ralph Breaks the Internet, Princess Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) got one — albeit an appropriately offbeat one. The young video game racer and quirky princess got her own solo song penned by the legendary Disney maestro Alan Menken in a song that is equal parts self-deprecating and inspirational, in the vein of both Wreck-It Ralph movies. But boy does Vanellope sing her little heart out about murderous street racing in the full “A Place Called Slaughter Race” sequence, which is now available to watch online.

In the years since, updates have been sparse with the exception of a title reveal calling the movie MiB 23.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the cult favorite comedy Office Space. The movie bombed spectacularly at the box office with just under $11 million made in its entire domestic run. That was barely enough to cover the film’s budget. But against all odds, the movie found a big audience on home video and cable and has since become one of the most quoted and beloved comedies of the ’90s.
Since this year is a milestone anniversary for Office Space, writer/director Mike Judge, cast members Ron Livingston, David Herman, Ajay Naidu, Jennifer Aniston, Gary Cole and some key crew members sat down for an oral history of the film to discuss how it came together, who nearly starred in the movie, why Madonna finds Michael Bolton sexy and much more.

Wes Anderson has no problem rounding up an impressive assembly A-list talent whenever he gets behind the camera to direct a new movie. Most of them are recurring stars from his previous collaborations, but with each movie, he brings in some fresh blood who have never worked with the filmmaker before. And one more new collaborator has been added to the cast.
