Cool Posts From Around the Web:
A new Netflix original comedy series is coming to the streaming service next month starring Timothy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore, but it’s not exactly what you would expect from either of them.
Santa Clarita Diet might sound like the latest weight loss craze for people to make their New Year’s resolutions come to fruition (and the teasers from a little while back certainly played into that). But it’s actually the new comedy series that finds Drew Barrymore as a normal suburban woman who happens to have died at some point, and yet has inexplicably kept on living her life, but with one big change: she is now hungry for raw flesh.
As any devoted husband would do, Joel (Timothy Olyphant) decides to help her satisfy her cravings, and her teenage daughter Abby (Liv Hewson) is totally cool with it too. Watch the new Santa Clarita Diet trailer to see how this all shakes out. Read More »

With his new show, Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet, he’s acting alongside the equally charming Drew Barrymore, whose character undergoes a surprising change.
Below, learn what the Santa Clarita Diet is really about.

Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore star in the comedy Miss You Already, which will premiere soon at TIFF before opening in the US and UK later this fall. A film with Toni Collette in a lead role is something we’re always game to watch, and this one is particularly interesting as it is directed by Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight, Plush).
Here, Collette and Barrymore play friends with a strong bond who are rocked when one is diagnosed with cancer. The pair ultimately faces the problem head-on, but not without a significant struggle. Dominic Cooper, Paddy Considine, Tyson Ritter and Jacqueline Bisset also appear in the film; check out the Miss You Already trailer below.

Sixteen years after they first got together in The Wedding Singer (yes, you’re that old), Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore, and director Frank Coraci have reunited once more for Blended. This time, the two stars play single parents who have one awful blind date together… and then, through a series of only-in-the-movies contrivances, find themselves on an African safari together with their kids.
Basically, think The Brady Bunch by way of Happy Madison, with a big dollop of the “white people discovering themselves in brown places” travelogue a la Eat Pray Love. But does the old Sandler-Barrymore chemistry still hold up? Find out after the jump with a new Blended trailer.
