The cult hit Search Party is returning for a third season at an all-new home. The first two seasons of the series aired on TBS, but for season 3, Search Party is packing up its bags and heading on over to HBO Max. The series follows a group of hip millennials (those darn kids!) as they get mixed up in various mysteries. So it’s kind of like Scooby-Doo, without the talking dog and people dressed as ghosts. Okay, I guess it’s not like Scooby-Doo at all.

Duck Butter is not a film about a whirlwind lesbian romance — rather, it’s a slow-moving train crash about a relationship that appears doomed from the start. But it’s one that you can’t look away from.
Alia Shawkat stars in and co-writes the Miguel Arteta-directed dramedy about two women who embark on a 24-hour experiment that puts the fast-forward button on their relationship. But the experiment — which involves them having sex every hour — takes a dramatic turn as emotions and unresolved issues come to a head. Duck Butter is a slow-burning drama whose every story movement is deliberate, every long silence is dense with meaning, and every emotion feels explosive. But there’s an unease to watching the film and knowing the inevitable outcome of this romantic experiment: the penny will drop, the love will fail, and the shit will (literally) come out.

Several titles that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year are making their way to limited releases and VOD this summer. One of the more charming offerings is The Intervention, a relationship dramedy fueled by an incredible cast, some sharp writing, and one intervention that turns into multiple cries for help among a group of four couples on a weekend getaway.

There’s being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and then there’s finding yourself in the middle of a group of neo-Nazis who will stop at anything to cover up a murder. That’s exactly what happens in Jeremy Saulnier‘s latest thriller Green Room when a punk rock band sees something they weren’t supposed to after playing a shady stop on a little cross country tour.
Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) and Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) are among the bandmates while Imogen Poots (Fright Night) is the concertgoer whose friend has met a grisly fate at the hands of another band member’s violent ways. They all end up stuck in this hell that is meticulously taken care of by Patrick Stewart and his loyal group of skinheads. A new Green Room red band trailer shows just how intense this movie truly is, and it’s one you won’t want to miss. Read More »
Many know Patrick Stewart as the fearless Captain Jean Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, or as Professor X, the noble mentor and leader of the X-Men. But this spring, we’ll see him in a role unlike any other he’s played before, and it’s pretty terrifying.
Green Room is the next thriller from Blue Ruin director Jeremy Saulnier, and it delivers the intense, brutal and thrilling face-off between a punk band (including Anton Yelchin and Imogen Poots) in the wrong place at the wrong time and a group of methodical, calculated neo-Nazis led by none other than Stewart. Watch a new Green Room trailer that teases this suspenseful match-up after the jump. Read More »
