If you can’t decide what to watch this weekend, ScreenCrush’s Staff Picks are here to help. They’re like the recommendations at an old video store, except you don’t have to put on pants or go outside to get them. Here are four things to watch this weekend:
Your spring just got a whole lot sunnier. Kimmy is back, and headed to college, as Netflix finally unveils a first full trailer for Season 3 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Come, Lemonade with us and learn the true purpose of thumbs!
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.)
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt may be debuting Season 3 later in the year than we’re used to, but the wait appears to be well worth it. Not only do we have our first photos, but also word on new and returning guests, from Laura Dern to Jon Hamm and yes, Robert Durst. Sort of.
We’ve once again nearly completed this season’s tour of Portlandia, and intend to soak up as much as possible in the penultimate year. Check out an exclusive new clip from this Thursday’s ninth Season 7 episode, as Conan co-host Andy Richter makes his debut alongside Fred and Carrie, learning a valuable office skill.
Yesterday, a brief partial trailer for a full-length trailer (itself a partial-length version of the full-length movie) arrived online in promotion of The Lego Ninjago Movie, the latest spinoff of the Lego Movie franchise more recently expanded with The Lego Batman Movie. It gave us a brief preview of the design of the land of Ninjago, a block-built utopia wth Eastern influences that superficially resembles Tokyo. But today, we’ll get a fuller look at the new world in which this film takes place, and the scrappy little figurines that populate it as well.
It’s been a good long while since Bill Murray brought us a Netflix Christmas special, and who better than Michael Bolton and The Lonely Island to take us through Valentine’s Day? See for yourself in a full trailer for Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special, chock full of stars, and already available to stream for next week.
Yes, the dream of the ‘90s is coming to an end. Put a bird on it, draw the shutters on Women and Women first, and every other Portlandia reference you can think of. Fred and Carrie will be back for Season 8 in 2018, but it’ll be their last in Portland.
Just yesterday saw the likely-penultimate season of IFC’s Portlandia releasing its expansive list of guest stars, ahead of Season 7's early January premiere. Now, see a few in action as SNL star Vanessa Bayer, Laurie Metcalf and NBA player Damian Lillard make their debuts with five new clips from IFC.
Portlandia never fails to bring with it a treasury of comedy stars, and Season 7 is no exception. Ahead of a January 2017 premiere, Fred and Carrie are adding to their weird world everyone from Broad City stars to the B-52's, while Kyle MacLachlan and more book their returns.
