Happy interview

When your film credits include the Crank movies, Gamer, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, and Mom and Dad, it’s hard to imagine getting any crazier than director Brian Taylor already has. But the first season of Taylor’s Syfy series Happy! featured kidnapped children, a three-headed dog, a killer Santa Claus, and the alcoholic corrupt cop as the good guy.

Based on the comic by Grant Morrison, Happy! is back for a second season and Taylor promises it’s 10 times crazier. Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni) has retired from the force and is trying to get sober. He’s getting to know his daughter Hailey (Bryce Lorenzo), and her former imaginary friend Happy (Patton Oswalt) is now Nick’s. There’s also exploding nuns and desecration of chocolate Easter bunnies.

Taylor spoke with /Film by phone about the new season of Happy!, his upcoming Brave New World series for USA, and why he won’t do a safe, studio friendly Crank 3. Read More »

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later Trailer

Netflix brought back Wet Hot American Summer for a series revival back in 2015 after development of a sequel to the 2001 Sundance comedy hit was happening for years. Instead of making good upon the promise of a 10-year reunion teased at the end of the movie, the series went back to the first day at Camp Firewood, which was all the more ridiculous simply because it had a cast of actors and actress in their 30s and 40s playing teenagers. But now the reunion we’ve all been waiting for is finally coming.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is a new eight episode continuation of the goofy camp comedy that brings back (almost) all of the original cast members again as we flash forward to their lives in 1991. It looks just as insane as the prequel series was, and it even has some new cast members joining the fun.
