The Righteous Gemstones is already rich with an outstanding cast led by John Goodman, Danny McBride, and Adam DeVine. But when the show’s second season comes to HBO, it will be blessed with a trio of new cast members who will make it even better. Jason Schwartzman (Bored to Death), Eric André (Bad Trip), and Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight) have all joined The Righteous Gemstones season 2 cast, and the new episodes are currently in production.

There’s plenty of private eyes to hire in Los Angeles. The ones you’d probably want to go to are the “Swedish Dicks,” an ex-stuntman (Peter Stormare) and a DJ (Johan Glans) with a dream. They stars of the Pop series probably aren’t the best detectives L.A. has to offer, but they do have one thing going for them: they hang out with “special recurring guest star Keanu Reeves,” who drops in on them throughout the first ten episodes of Swedish Dicks.
Below, watch the Swedish Dicks trailer.

Has writer/director Tom Six gone full Sharknado with The Human Centipede 3 [Final Sequence]? This latest Human Centipede 3 trailer shows that this second sequel to the conceptually-disgusting original film is not only self-referential (Tom Six is even in this one) and histrionic, but deliberately goofy and tongue-in-cheek. I guess that’s better than the tongue being lodged somewhere else, as this trailer will show.
Note: This isn’t a red-band trailer but it is a trailer for a Human Centipede movie, so you’ll have to apply your own wisdom with respect to watching at work. Read More »
The Human Centipede returns, and it is still ridiculous, and still pretty disgusting. Tom Six‘s latest film, which he has said “will have a lot of self-mockery and will be the most darkly comical” of the series, also looks cheaper and somehow even nastier than the rest of the films.
This time the setting is a prison, where an overbearing warden (Dieter Laser, returning to the fold) literally gets prisoners in line by, well, you know the drill by now. You can see the Human Centipede 3 trailer below, if that’s what you’re into — it’s technically a red-band trailer, thanks to a bunch of shots of writhing prisoners. Read More »
Inherent Vice is a big movie with a lot of moving parts. Even though it cuts out a lot of material from the novel by Thomas Pynchon, the film still has a wealth of characters with odd names, many of whom are given pretty breezy introductions. But a set of Inherent Vice character posters and brief video introductions for many of the major characters might help you sort people out ahead of time.
The downside is that these video intros give up a few of the film’s good jokes (but not all of them by any means). The upside is that these videos feature a bunch of footage that isn’t in the film, not that most people will have a chance to know which is which until after this Friday. Read More »

Amanda Seyfried‘s covered more genres in the few of years than some actors do in their entire careers. She’s done an indie drama (The End of Love), a thriller (Gone), a musical (Les Misérables), a romcom (The Big Wedding), a kids’ cartoon (Epic), and now, she’s gonna do porn. Er, that is, a movie about porn.
Jeffrey Friedman and Rob Epstein‘s Lovelace chronicles the story of Linda Boreman, who became an international sensation after changing her name to Linda Lovelace and starring in the crossover porn hit Deep Throat. Seyfried plays the title character, while Peter Sarsgaard co-stars as her husband/Svengali Chuck Traynor. Watch the first trailer after the jump.
Update: While the original embed was removed at the studio’s request, the official version has been released and can be found below.

Matthew Wilder’s Inferno was the Linda Lovelace biopic we heard about first, but it seems like Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman‘s Lovelace is the one that’s moving full speed right now. Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard were cast as the titular porn star and her husband Chuck Traynor in early November, with Sharon Stone signing on to play Lovelace’s mother just a couple of weeks later. Then last month, Wes Bentley, Juno Temple, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, and James Franco all boarded the picture as well.
Now Demi Moore, Adam Brody, and Eric Roberts have become the latest to join the drama, which is based on Eric Danville‘s book The Complete Linda Lovelace. More details after the jump.
