Even though Easter weekend is still a couple weeks away, The Angry Birds Movie is getting a head start by getting their holiday greeting out there. After all, birds have become a part of the Easter holiday, along with rabbits, for no good reason at all. The good news is that even though this is just a shameless plug for the animated adaptation of the mobile game franchise, it’s done in an extremely adorable way, thanks to the tiny hatchlings explaining what the Easter Bunny does for the holiday. Seriously, they’re almost unbearably cute. Read More »
Even though the movie is called The Angry Birds Movie, based on the popular mobile game of the same name, it looks like there’s really only one angry bird here. Red, a bushy-eyebrowed bird with a temper problem, is voiced by Jason Sudeikis. While his anger seems to be giving him some grief in everyday life, his short fuse also seems to be the only thing that allows him to see that the recently arrived green pigs are out to steal their eggs. And if you’ve been waiting to see some birds in a slingshot in this movie, the new Angry Birds Movie trailer should do the trick. Read More »

Much as an infuriated avian might send its own body crashing into a structure to get to some evil swine, Sony is throwing a very funny voice cast at its Angry Birds movie to win over the skeptics.
Jason Sudeikis has just been announced for the lead part of Red, with Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, and Peter Dinklage all set for co-starring roles. And those are just the major players — there about ten more notable names in smaller roles as well. Get details on the Angry Birds movie cast, and see the first photo, after the jump.

All that’s missing is the voice of Ron Howard’s narrator, but otherwise everything you want from Arrested Development is here in the first trailer for the show’s fourth season. The primary cast (Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor, and Jessica Walter) all make appearances, and there are some great jokes.
Actually, while the trailer stars slow, it builds a good head of steam fast, and there are a lot of great jokes. As soon as Buster hits the screen, it’s all systems go. Can it be May 26 now? (And also, seriously, where’s Ron Howard?) Read More »

It seems like every major film or TV campaign now includes at least one set of character posters, but trust Arrested Development to have a little fun with theirs.
Nine new posters have dropped for the highly anticipated fourth season of the comedy, but they don’t show the Bluth clan’s handsome mugs. Instead, they showcase a series of objects that should look very familiar to anyone who’s followed the first three seasons of the show. Check ’em out after the jump.

Well, it’s about time. A couple of months ago, we got an amusing first teaser for HBO’s Veep, and last week saw the release of a short featurette from the set. But it’s only now that we’re finally getting a real look at the series, a political satire of contemporary American politics from In the Loop director Armando Iannucci.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus stars as a senator who wins the office of vice president of the United States, only to find that the job isn’t at al what she expected. Also starring are Anna Chlumsky, Matt Walsh, Sufe Bradshaw, and Tony Hale (looks like all that schooling finally paid off for Buster).
In addition, the network has unveiled another new trailer for Girls, Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture) and Judd Apatow‘s comedy about twentysomething women trying to make it in the big, bad city. Watch the videos after the jump.

Update: EW has confirmed that Showtime and Netflix are in talks with producers about airing the miniseries.
Keep holding out hope, Arrested Development fans. Five years after the series finale, creator Mitchell Hurwitz is still insisting that, yes, a movie based on the brilliant-but-cancelled sitcom is definitely in the works. And what’s more, he’s now hoping to do a nine- or ten-episode lead-in miniseries as well. Intriguing news indeed, but I don’t think I’ll be holding my breath. More details after the jump.

Film festivals almost always have a series of bumpers produced to run before films — 30-second to one-minute shorts that represent the theme of the festival and ease audiences into a film. Jordan Vogt-Roberts was commissioned to make four bumpers for this year’s Sundance Film Festival. He did, and each one shows off the slogan (‘Be Here’) but a couple also poked fun at some of the personalities that show up at the festival.
The bumper quartet was reportedly nixed at the last minute, but you can watch them below. Read More »
