Fans – like me! – have been waiting patiently, and not-so-patiently, for Mindhunter season 2. The first season debuted on Netflix all the way back in 2017, and confirmation of a second season came soon after. But all has been quiet on the Mindhunter front since then. Now, Charlize Theron, who is one of the producers on the serial killer series, has confirmed we can expect further mindhuntin’ this summer, as Mindhunter season 2 arrives in August.

Long Shot premiered to rave reviews at this year’s South By Southwest Film Festival. It’s a smart, funny, charming movie that features surprising chemistry between stars Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron – but this new trailer would like to remind you that the film also has its fair share of physical comedy.
Rogen’s character, a journalist named Fred Flarsky, takes two huge spills in this trailer that would have sidelined a normal human for the rest of the movie, so it’s a good thing Flarksy is also a superhero named Long Shot who’s invulnerable to pain! (He isn’t.) Read More »

The internet has been fan-casting Oscar Isaac in an Addams Family reboot for a few years, and now, it’s finally happening! But there’s a catch: we won’t get to actually see Isaac don a pinstripe suit and puff away on a cigar, because the new Addams Family is animated. Bummer. Still, the film has a great voice cast, with an animation style meant to evoke Charles Addams’ classic comic strips. Check out The Addams Family trailer below.

Seth Rogen gets his own Pretty Woman in the form of the raunchy romantic comedy Long Shot.
The comedy from 50/50 director Jonathan Levine follows the Knocked Up star as a journalist named Fred Flarsky who gets recruited as a presidential campaign speechwriter for US Secretary of State, Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron). She needs some humor and charm to change the public’s perception of her, and Flarsky has no problem bringing that to the table. But he’s also bringing some unrequited feelings with him from when Charlotte used to babysit him as a kid. Surprisingly, romance ensues in the red band Long Shot trailer below. Read More »

Jonathan Levine’s Long Shot is a sufficiently safety-wrapped package of vocal demands for change structured around equally predictable rom-com beats (watch the trailer). Not the worst thing in the world by any stretch of emphasis, mind you. Cutesy Hallmark signatures are traded for shared gender relationship roles, highlighting women’s ongoing strife in daily global environments while romance flourishes under often redefined subgenre frameworks. Liz Hannah and Dan Sterling’s screenplay says less about “Red vs Blue” headbutting and chromosome-focused stereotypes than perceived, but still provides a comedic outlet for strong performers who attract “unlikely” lovestruck charms.
Oh yeah, did I mention Long Shot tempts us with the idea of Charlize Theron leading America into a brighter tomorrow? As they’d say in the meme world, “You have my sword.” Read More »

Charlize Theron is the latest A-list movie star to make a movie with Netflix.
The Mad Max: Fury Road actress will co-star with KiKi Layne (If Beale Street Could Talk) in The Old Guard, a movie adaptation of the recent comic series about “a covert group of immortal mercenaries who must fight to keep their team together when their extraordinary abilities are exposed.” That may sound like a somewhat generic description, but this film sounds like it could be something very special. Learn more about it below.

Director Jonathan Levine (50/50, Warm Bodies) is back with a new Seth Rogen/Charlize Theron comedy called Long Shot. If that title doesn’t sound familiar, you may recognize it from its earlier (and arguably more memorable) title: Flarsky. The title was changed to signify that it wasn’t primarily the story of Rogen’s character, Fred Flarsky, but more of a two-hander where Theron’s character is equally as important. “I’m only half the story,” Rogen explained. Check out the first Long Shot trailer below. Read More »
The Seth Rogen/Charlize Theron Comedy ‘Flarsky’ Has a New Title, Seth Rogen Explains The Change [Updated]
Posted on Friday, February 1st, 2019 by Jacob Hall
Update: On Twitter, Rogen has explained the reason for the title change. Our original article follows, and you can read his explanation below.
For a long time, director Jonathan Levine‘s new movie was going by its original title: Flarsky. And then someone at Lionsgate realized that calling a film Flarsky is an invitation to make no money at the box office because it sounds like an off-brand medicinal soda only available in three states, so they’ve changed it. Flarsky is dead. Meet Long Shot.

Who says cinema is dead? As long as someone is ready to make a Liam Neeson snowplow action movie, the medium of film will live forever. Neeson is set to star in Hard Power, a remake of the 2014 Norwegian film In Order of Disappearance. Neeson plays a snowplow driver going up against a drug cartel. If that doesn’t excite you, I don’t know what else to say.
Anyway, we now know when this miracle will hit theaters.
