With Goon: Last of the Enforcers, actor and writer Jay Baruchel makes his feature directorial debut. He previously directed an episode of Trailer Park Boys and a short film, Edgar and Jane, but the very first Jay Baruchel film is the sequel to a beloved sports comedy he co-wrote. In the Goon sequel, which arrives five years after the first movie, the fights are bloodier, the fighters are more tired, and the future is less bright.
Doug Glatt (Sean William Scott) finally found his calling in Goon. In the sequel, his days are numbered on the ice, so the lovable goon with a massive fist finds himself lost again. Baruchel doesn’t forget the laughs, of course, but as he pointed out in our interview, hockey is changing for the enforcers, with fights dropping in the NHL. That sea change is a part of Goon: Last of the Enforcers, which Baruchel was happy to discuss along with how the sequel evolved and died twice, writing the legendary Ross Rhea (Liev Schreiber), and all the well-deserved love for the first Goon.
Below, check out our Jay Baruchel interview.

The world deserved more of ABC’s Happy Endings. The David Caspe-created comedy only lasted three seasons, from 2011 to 2013, and it’s been too long since we’ve seen Penny (Casey Wilson), Dave (Zachary Knighton), Max (Adam Pally), Brad (Damon Wayans, Jr.), Jane (Eliza Coupe), and Alex (Elisha Cuthbert) together. The good news is, the gang recently reunited for the episode “Happy to Be Here,” which was performed live by the cast at EW’s PopFest.
Below, watch the cast read the script for the lost Happy Endings episode.

It stings me to write this, but one of my most anticipated movies of 2016, Goon: Last of the Enforcers, isn’t coming out until next year. The good news is, we finally know when the Jay Baruchel-directed sequel is coming out, or at least when it’s coming out in Canada. Next March is when our fine neighbors to the North will witness Goon: Last of the Enforcers.
Below, learn more about the Goon sequel release date.

So far Netflix has had a pretty good track record when it comes to their original programming, whether it’s dramas like House of Cards, comedies like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, or animated series like BoJack Horseman. But just like Pixar stumbled after a long series of fantastic programming, Netflix seems to have finally lost some steam.
In addition to the nostalgic cash grab of Fuller House, Netflix is getting a little old-fashioned with a new multi-camera comedy series called The Ranch starring Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson, and it has one of those annoying laugh tracks to let you know when it’s time to laugh at the terrible jokes. But the only difference is that there are no censors to hold back the language.

Not so great news for 24 fans. EW is reporting that production of the new season of 24 will shut down for more than two weeks so that the series writers can “reshape the upcoming season’s creative direction”. Howard Gordon admits that they “just couldn’t get this direction to work,” so they “found another one” and “wound up retooling it.” Last season was lackluster by every account, and a production shutdown is never a good sign, especially considering this season was already postponed an entire year (partly due to the writers strike). You would think that with all the extra time, they would have figured everything out…
And if that doesn’t sound bad enough, Michael Ausiello reports that Elisha Cuthbert has signed on to reprise her role as Jack Bauer’s incredibly stupid and annoying daughter.
A few months ago we posted an unreleased Captivity (poster) movie trailer and no one cared. Then that whole billboard controversy happened and all of a sudden Elisha Cuthbert’s shameless SAW rip-off is the talk of the internet. Check out the new theatrical movie trailer (this one has all the marking sparkle that the uncut version lacked) after the jump.

What happened to Elisha Cuthbert’s career? She had a good part in one of the best series on television (24, at least in the first season – cougars aside). She left to pursue a movie career and has since starred in nothing but crap. We have a glimpse at the poster for her new movie Captivity.
Roland Joffï¿½’s film is a shameless SAW rip-off. Don’t believe me? Read the official synopsis:
A man and a woman awaken to find themselves captured in a cellar. As their kidnapper drives them psychologically mad, the truth about their horrific abduction is revealed.
Still don’t believe me? Check out the unreleased Captivity trailer below.
Not only is it a rip-off, but it’s a bad rip-off. Although, I must admit that the poster is really cool. But not enough to make me want to watch the film. As always, left click for a higher res version.
Captivity gets a limited from AfterDarkFilms on May 18th 2007.
