Horror and comedy are two tricky genres on their own, and when combined you have the potential to deliver pure gold (Cabin in the Woods, What We Do in the Shadows) or total mediocrity. Freaks of Nature is the latest entry in the horror comedy sub-genre, a film for which Jonah Hill was once set to make his directorial debut, and judging by the trailer, it could’ve used a little of his particular comedic skill set.
Now that President Obama has come and gone, Jon Stewart’s final round of Daily Show outings will bring out a few more big guns to help send him off. Among the sure to be extensive list, we already have top comedians (and near successors) Amy Schumer, Louis C.K. and even Denis Leary booking slots on Jon Stewart’s final run.
Before Marvel and Sony reached their highly-anticipated agreement to combine forces for a Spider-Man reboot, there was a lot of confusion about where the web-slinger was headed. We saw some of that in the e-mails following the Sony hack, accompanied by rumors about potential character returns and various spinoff plans. Now that director Marc Webb and the cast have moved on, they’ve begun to clarify what a third Amazing Spider-Man film would have been like.
Now that 'Sons of Anarchy' has come to a close, FX's year ahead looks brighter than ever, bringing with it premieres for the final season of 'Justified,' 'Archer''s sixth year, and 'The Americans'' return. That said, comedy may win the day, as a new FX trailer previews our first look at Zach Galifianakis and Louis C.K.'s 'Baskets,' along with Denis Leary's return in 'Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.'
A ways back we were intrigued to learn that 'Rescue Me' and 'The Amazing Spider-Man' alum Denis Leary would return to FX for an all-new comedy titled 'Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll,' and while the premise seemed a little flat, the music lives on. FX has officially given a series order to 'Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll,' releasing the first photos of Leary in character as well.
Just three years after Denis Leary's under-appreciated FX dramedy 'Rescue Me' put out its last fire, the legendary comic is returning to the network for a new half-hour series. Leary will both write and star in the pilot for a New York-set musician comedy 'Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll,' set to feature original music and occasional guest appearances by real-life rock stars as well.
Whether or not you ever caught the critically under-appreciated FX gem 'Rescue Me,' or you delight in Denis Leary's acerbic wit in this year's 'The Amazing Spider-Man,' the comedian certainly has a distinctive voice. Literally, and figuratively. That's why FX's latest announcement has us wondering, will we hear either in the new series 'Bronx Warrants?'
The 'Ice Age' series continues to tackle Earth's biggest events as seen through the eyes of talking, prehistoric mammals who would never hang out with each other. This time the world is literally falling apart in the new trailer for 'Ice Age: Continental Drift.'
