The first — red band and incredibly NSFW — trailer for The Little Hours ticks off so many of the right boxes: Aubrey Plaza and Alison Brie as foul-mouthed, promiscuous nuns. John C. Reilly, merely existing because that’s really all that we require of him. Fred Armisen’s off-kilter humor, Dave Franco (the superior Franco), Nick Offerman, and Molly Shannon — all participating in a raunchy take on those stoic Euro masterpieces from the ’70s. (Despite the fact that The Devils already exists.)
“A stalker movie for the social media era” — that’s how our editor-in-chief Matt Singer described Ingrid Goes West in his review from the Sundance film festival back in January. That idea is only somewhat insinuated in this tightly edited (and tightly wound) red band teaser for the upcoming film, starring Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen in what might also be described as a modern cautionary tale for millennials with smart phones grafted to their hands.
Only two episodes remain in FX’s Legion after tonight, at least for this year. Yes, David Haller and his merry band of mutants will be back for Season 2 in 2018, and your head is already hurting just thinking about it.
FX and Noah Hawley’s ‘Legion’ dives deep into this trippy, visually arresting and unique slant on the X-Men universe, but what might be the most gorgeous story put to TV can feel a bit lost in all the sensory overload. Our advance review, before the premiere mutates on February 8.
I have a young daughter, and I love sharing pictures and videos of her antics on social media. Occasionally people who follow me online will tell me in person how much they love my baby or how happy I seem with her. And I am. But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows; I just don’t share the moments where she wakes the whole house up at 4AM or has diaper rash so bad that she screams for 10 minutes straight. The line bteween reality and fiction online can get very blurry — and sometimes the persona we create there is much more appealing than the real thing.
One of the apostles (I think it was Peter) once said that casting John C. Reilly covers over a multitude of sins. The Little Hours is basically a one-joke sketch — medieval nuns swearing like sailors — stretched out to feature length, but whenever the film starts to run out of gas or repeat itself a little too much, there’s Reilly, its rock and redeemer, turning watery jokes into a potent brew.
As if FX’s 2017 weren’t looking sunny enough, we finally know when Fargo creator Noah Hawley’s X-Men series Legion will mutate onto our screens. Catch the February premiere, along with a brand-new trailer from FX in the latest sneak peek!
The very first Drunk History in 2007 started with the duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, leaving it uncertain if we’d ever see a retelling from the Hamilton master, Lin-Manuel Miranda. Thankfully, the day has arrived, as a drunk Miranda leads a new all-star retelling of Hamilton’s life with a clip from Monday’s Drunk History.
Even New York Comic-Con couldn’t lift the veil of secrecy around FX’s X-Men series Legion, only showing attendees a portion of the pilot, but we’re getting closer. Not only is there a new trailer for the Noah Hawley mutant drama, but also a clearer premiere date for early 2017.
It seems fair to say that Noah Hawley’s FX-tinged take on X-Men series Legion will prove a bit more … off … than what we’re used to, and the promos are certainly capturing that. Following that incredible first trailer, drool over some new footage previewed during FX’s Atlanta.
