The Star Wars Rebels finale raises just as many questions as it answers. I very much enjoyed this final installment of the Disney XD series, but am surprised that the story seems far from concluded. The ending even appears to feature a cliffhanger that teases a new adventure which could be explored in another Star Wars animated series or feature film. But was that the intention? Find out what showrunner Dave Filoni had to say about the Star Wars Rebels ending.

Little Evil trailer

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is a fantastic horror comedy. Eli Craig‘s directorial debut is a sweet, bloody as hell and consistently funny film with two standout performances. Craig has reunited with the star of his first movie, Tyler Labine, for his second feature, Little Evil. The Netflix comedy stars Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) and Evangeline Lilly (Ant-Man) as a newly wed couple. They’re happily married, but there’s one problem: the child (Owen Atlas) they’re raising is the antichrist.

Below, watch the Little Evil trailer.

Donal Logue in Gotham - character actor psa
Entertainment Weekly has released a faux public service announcement with character actors explaining why you should care about “that guy from that thing” more than “that guy on the billboard.” Character actors are supporting  actors who are usually skilled at playing interesting or unusual characters, but not usually the lead roles in a film. They are the unsung heroes of Hollywood. Watch the character actor PSA video embedded now after the jump.

Wish I Was Here teaser trailer

Zach Braff‘s Wish I Was Here is now infamous because of the controversy surrounding Braff’s Kickstarter campaign. But the film premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and was a real crowd pleaser — earning a standing ovation at the Premiere screening (it was one of my favorites of this year’s fest). Focus Features snapped up the distribution rights, and the movie is being released on July 25th, 2014. The Wish I Was Here trailer was released this morning, and you can see it for yourself. Wish I Was Here is a dramedy about “a thirtysomething man who finds himself at major crossroads, which forces him to examine his life, his career, and his family.” The ensemble cast includes Zach Braff, Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Joey King, Jim Parsons, Ashley Greene, and Donald Faison. Watch Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here teaser trailer embedded after the jump.

Star Wars Abrams Logo

October marks the one-year anniversary of Disney purchasing Lucasfilm and announcing that new Star Wars films are on the way. In that year, there have been some official announcements, but those halted early this summer. We know director J.J. Abrams is hard at work prepping Star Wars Episode VII. Actors are revealing they’ve tried out for the film, and yet fans still wait with baited breath for some acknowledgement of their craving for official news.

Now, several different sources are saying this month, maybe as soon as this week, could bring official news regarding Episode VII. How, when, where and what could it be? Below, we’ll run the rumors down along with info regarding Donald Faison and Topher Grace. Read More »

Zach Braff Kickstarting ‘Garden State’ Follow-Up

Wish I Was Here

Creators of brilliant-but-cancelled TV series aren’t the only ones who’ve been inspired by Veronica Mars‘ Kickstarter success. Zach Braff has taken note, and now he’s taking a similar route to fund his next movie.

Braff made quite a splash with his 2004 feature directing debut Garden State, but as he explains it, the difficulty of finding financing has kept him from making a follow-up. Until now, that is, with your help. Wish I Was Here is designed as “not a sequel in story, but a continuation of the tone” of Garden State, centering on a 30something struggling actor instead of a 20something one. Watch his pitch video, which features appearances from Donald Faison, Jim Parsons, and Chris Hardwick, after the jump.

Scrubs star Donald Faison has just entered talks to play Dr. Gravity, a Columbia University student by day and a mask-donning, baseball bat-wielding crimefighter by night.

Pre-production on Kick-Ass 2 is currently humming along for a fall shoot, with Jeff Wadlow at the helm. Returning stars Nicolas Cage and Chloe Grace Moretz are also on board. No release date has been announced at this time. [Deadline]
