Netflix‘s onslaught of original content is becoming more overwhelming by the day — but there are still a few of their movies that are worth checking out. Namely, those of the romantic-comedy variety, for which Netflix is engineering a sort of revival after rom-coms disappeared from the big screen. And it looks like their next promising sorta rom-com is Like Father, a dramedy starring Kristen Bell and Kelsey Grammer as an estranged father-daughter duo who try to reconnect after Bell is left at the altar. See the first Like Father trailer below.

Disney’s live-action adaptation of its animated classic Beauty and the Beast was a huge hit last year, but it didn’t satisfy all the fans out there. Some were particularly disappointed with the obviously enhanced vocal work of Harry Potter franchise star Emma Watson when singing as the charming, sharp, bookworm villager Belle. But they might be more satisfied with the latest casting of Belle in an upcoming Beauty and the Beast live concert production coming to The Hollywood Bowl this spring.
Following previous live concert renditions of The Nightmare Before Christmas and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the Beauty and the Beast live concert features an all-star cast that will be led by (500) Days of Summer and New Girl star Zooey Deschanel. And if that wasn’t intriguing enough, the rest of the cast features an interesting assembly of talent as well. Read More »

Amazon is continuing the battle against Netflix with yet another new original series debuting this summer. This time, they’re reaching back into classic literature with an adaptation of The Last Tycoon, based on the novel of the same name by The Great Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald, which just celebrated its 75th anniversary last year.
The Last Tycoon takes place back in 1930s Hollywood and follows Monroe Stahr (Matt Bomer) and his mentor Pat Brady (Kelsey Grammer) as they battle for control of their movie studio at a time sandwiched between the Great Depression and the start of World War II. It looks provocative, sexy and pretty damn good.

It feels like it’s been too long since we’ve gotten a new project from Guillermo del Toro. That might be because Crimson Peak was a bit of a disappointment last year, and we’ll be waiting until sometime next year to see his next movie, The Shape of Water, which started filming just a few months ago. But in the meantime, we’ll have a little something to hold us over.
Guillermo del Toro has been working with Netflix on an animated series called Trollhunters, adapted from a book he wrote himself with Daniel Kraus. While it’s clearly geared towards kids, it has some stylish animation and fantasy action that should keep his adult fans entertained until his new movie arrives. You can see what we’re talking about in a new Trollhunters featurette with new footage and some insight from del Toro himself. Read More »

“Where do babies come from?” is the question all parents dread hearing, at least according to every family sitcom ever. But if you can wait ’til fall to have the talk, Warner Bros.’ Storks can help you out with a kid-friendly, completely scientifically accurate accounting of how exactly the process works.
As all of us adults know, of course, it begins with the Baby Making Machine on Stork Mountain. The device spits out a tiny human, and a bird (possibly one that sounds exactly like Andy Samberg) is assigned to drop it off at its new home. Along the way, said bird will inevitably run into hilarious and adorable mishaps. Get a little peek at that incredible journey with the latest Storks trailer.

If you’re curious as to how Sideshow Bob came to be the character he is today, and who inspired the character’s rich voice that Grammer brings to life, you can find out pretty quickly. Kelsey Grammer recently appeared on The Graham Norton Show and discussed how he came to be involved with The Simpsons and the origin of Sideshow Bob’s voice. Read More »
