Apart from the gargantuan task of reassembling the stars of Wet Hot American Summer for Netflix’s First Day of Camp, we have to wonder if the new series could recapture that same chemistry. Wonder no more, as Elizabeth Banks headlines the first official clip of our return to Camp Firewood, and things are getting Wet Hot, and perhaps American already. Also, Summer.
ABC’s upcoming Muppets mockumentary series only had so much to show at its recent Comic-Con 2015 panel, but with an actual premiere as far away as September, Kermit, Ms. Piggy, Gonzo and the gang dug deep for a special preview. Check out the 10-minute presentation that convinced ABC to make a new Muppets series!
Sure, the cast of Wet Hot American Summer may have made themselves known back in 2001, and you’ve potentially heard of a few of them during the intervening 14 years, but what better way to prepare for the First Day of Camp than to meet them all again, a decade olde .. er, a summer younger?
Panem is heading to Comic-Con next week as The Hunger Games takes over Hall H on Thursday, kicking things off in (hopefully) spectacular fashion. Speaking of fashion, Lionsgate has released a new image from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, featuring Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss and Elizabeth Banks’ Effie having an intimate and quite stylish moment.
No one knew for certain if Wet Hot American Summer could pull off its prequel reunion series on Netflix, but by the full trailer, the First Day of Camp looks like everything we’ve dreamed. See the star-studded cast reunited (and joined by some other ridiculously famous folk) for our first official trailer, along with a slick new poster!
Magic Mike was a movie about strippers trying to make ends meet in the midst of the Great Recession, the difficulty of modern romance, and the dangers of drug use. Magic Mike XXL is a movie about strippers stripping. And not a whole lot else.
Were there ever any doubt that Wet Hot American Summer would ride again, full cast and all, the first full trailer for Netflix prequel series First Day of Camp has arrived, and in glorious home video quality to boot.
This is a pretty weird clip to release from Magic Mike XXL — it is apparently the first time we see Elizabeth Banks’ character, who is surprised to see Channing Tatum’s Mike after he’s been out of the stripper game for a while. They appear to be at a convention, and Banks says they need an MC. And, okay, that’s it. But hey, it’s Elizabeth Banks.
The boys of Magic Mike are returning to theaters this summer, and while a couple of their old friends have been left behind, they’re welcoming a handful of new cast members, including Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover and Andie MacDowell. Warner Bros. has unleashed almost 50 new stills from Magic Mike XXL, featuring old cast members and new, and you can even spot original Magic Mike director Steven Soderbergh hanging out on set.
Elizabeth Banks made her directorial debut with this summer’s Pitch Perfect 2 — not only did audiences really dig her handiwork, but it looks like Banks herself was quite pleased with the experience, as she’s currently looking to line up her sophomore effort. Her next film may very well find the Hunger Games star in familiar territory, with an adaptation of the YA novel Red Queen.
