arrested development season 4

Mitch Hurwitz and 20th Century Fox Television may have just made a huuuge mistake. The polarizing Arrested Development season 4 “remix” was met with some confusion by fans and critics, but with mostly consternation by the cast members.

The new version of the season re-edited the episodes into shorter run times, but in the process expanded the season length to 22 episodes from the original 15-episode run. This has a few of the Arrested Development cast members arguing that they deserve extra compensation. In this case, it’s unfortunate that [Ron Howard voice]: all the footage was found.

Star Wars with Arrested Development Narration

Ron Howard has a history with George Lucas that goes all the way back to the director’s early work on a coming of age drama called American Graffiti. But it would take another 45 years before Ron Howard would become enveloped in the filmmaker’s most famous creation: the Star Wars universe.

Solo: A Star Wars Story brought in Ron Howard to take the helm of the Han Solo origin story after the young duo of Phil Lord & Chris Miller didn’t deliver what Lucasfilm was hoping to see out of the spin-off. To further immerse himself in the Star Wars universe, Ron Howard took the time to provide some of his signature Arrested Development voiceover for the Star Wars saga. Read More »

Arrested Development season 4 remix

Here’s some good news for Arrested Development fans. In an announcement on Twitter earlier today, creator Mitch Hurwitz said that season 5 of the show is coming “real soon.” So soon, in fact, that we should be surprised that we’re only hearing about the release date now.

Infinity War cameo

Before they became known as the directors of some of the biggest blockbusters in history, Anthony and Joe Russo were two of the creative forces behind Arrested Development, one of the funniest and most layered comedies in television history. The filmmaker hermanos snuck a reference to the show in Captain America: Civil War by dropping the famous stair car into that movie’s airport fight scene, so it’s no surprise that they included another shout-out to the series in Avengers: Infinity War. Did you catch the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it reference in the latest Marvel movie?

atomic blonde trailer

One of the panels that went overlooked at San Diego Comic-Con amidst all the major news and trailers from the rest of the convention was Entertainment Weekly‘s own “Women Who Kick Ass” panel. Usually, the panel features an ensemble of tough, badass women from movies and television, but this year’s panel focused on just one: Charlize Theron.

With Atomic Blonde in theaters this weekend, Charlize Theron continues to proved that she’s a certified action star. As Theron said during the panel, she sought out the movie herself because she wanted a very specific movie to play with, a movie where she could play a character who was “unapologetic and can play by the same rules as men.” Atomic Blonde is definitely that movie, and it opens up a possible franchise where Charlize Theron can keep returning as the secret agent over and over again.

Along with discussing the future of Atomic Blonde with Entertainment Weekly senior writer and panel moderator, Sara Vilkomerson, the actress also talked about a possible follow-up for Mad Max: Fury Road, what she thinks of the suggestion that she be the next James Bond, one of her proudest moments on screen, and what she wants to see from future female characters in movies.
