But it’s for the lord, so it’s all good. Watch The Righteous Gemstones trailer below to see how sacrilegious things are going to get. Read More »

The Angry Birds Movie 2 Trailer

Those Angry Birds are making the jump from your mobile game to the big screen again with a sequel to their animated feature film. And as the latest The Angry Birds Movie 2 trailer reveals, there’s a new threat that will force birds and the egg-stealing pigs to join forces.

The titular birds and their pig enemies discover an icy island, which we became very well acquainted with in the teaser trailer that introduced us to Leslie Jones as a purple-feathered fowl who is sick of her chilly surroundings. Somehow her dissatisfaction with home has led to threatening the nearby angry birds and the dastardly green pigs with a frigid weapon that could destroy their own islands. Can the birds and pigs overcome their differences in order to survive? Read More »

arizona trailer

Danny McBride gives his most frightening performance to date in Arizona. Director Jonathan Watson, who’s worked with McBride since season 2 of Eastbound and Down, uses McBride’s charisma and comedic powers to make a blonde-haired, golf-playing baddie all the more menacing. There’s something unsettling about McBride’s comedic sensibilities in a villain like Sonny, who never loses his scary sense of humor throughout the Rosemarie DeWitt-led Arizona

McBride read Luke Del Tredici‘s (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) script years ago and thought it was “a wild ride,” so he sent the script to Watson, helping to launching the well-seasoned first assistant director’s feature directorial debut. The first-time filmmaker shows a great grasp of tone with his thriller by nicely balancing the horror and laughs.

McBride recently spoke with us about playing his most villainous and insecure character yet, his work with costumer designer Sarah Trost, his time with Sir Ridley Scott, and the importance and power of sometimes pushing boundaries in comedy.

Jody Hill interview

Jody Hill is trying to warm some hearts with his latest comedy, The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter. The co-creator of Vice Principals and director of Observe and Report hasn’t softened up his humor for his Netflix movie, but the lead characters in his father/son story are certainly far less destructive than his past protagonists. Hill’s first feature film since 2010’s Observe and Report stars Josh Brolin as a hunter and TV show host – and Danny McBride as his trusted and inappropriate cameraman – taking his son Jaden (Montana Jordan) hunting for the first time.

The story, which Hill co-wrote with McBride and John Carcieri (Eastbound & Down), has a surprisingly sweet side to it. The movie will likely feel both familiar and new for Hill’s fans. The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter has the director’s sense of humor, although it’s not quite as dark this time around. Hill says he wanted to do something different. The very polite filmmaker recently told us about the project’s history, watching old ’80s hunting videos, memories from making HBO’s Vice Principals, and more.

The Righteous Gemstones - Danny McBride

Danny McBride has enjoyed plenty of success at HBO as the rough around the edges baseball player Kenny Powers in Eastbound and Down and the bitter, aggressive high school administrator Neal Gamby in Vice Principals. Now the cable network is taking the comedy star into the world of televangelism.

HBO has ordered a pilot for a half-hour comedy series called The Righteous Gemstones. The series created by Danny McBride will follow the Gemstone family, known around the world for their televangelism. But as you might expect, these people aren’t all that holy.
