Just as The Last Man on Earth kept the lion’s share of its first season plot under wraps (with good reason, detractors would argue), Season 2 of Lord and Miller’s Will Forte odyssey comes with an air of mystery. The first Season 2 promos offer at least some clue however, as Phil and Carol take up residence in the White House for their latest post-apocalyptic adventures.

Sometime in June, we first heard that Lord and Miller would develop a new “live-action / animation hybrid” series for FOX, with a creative team and partial cast already in place. Now, SNL alum Jason Sudeikis has signed on as the titular animated Barbarian for Son of Zorn, along with a host of others for the bizarre project.

‘Mother’s Day’ Is the Next Holiday Garry Marshall Will Make a Movie About

What is the worst franchise in Hollywood? Transformers? Alvin and the Chipmunks? Underworld? They’re all pretty crummy, but they pale before the abject awfulness of the unnamed franchise Garry Marshall’s been working on for the last couple years, where he takes a holiday everyone loves, cast a bunch of movie stars everyone loves, and puts them in a terrible, terrible movie that everyone hates (but which make a ton of money). First came Valentine’s Day featuring Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Garner, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel, and Jamie Foxx, and it was bad. Then there was New Year’s Day, with Halle Berry, Katherine Heigl, Zac Efron, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, and Robert freaking De Niro and it was, somehow, much, much worse. Now Marshall’s reign of calendarian terror will continue with Mother’s Day.

‘Sleeping With Other People’ Trailer: Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie Can’t Stop Sleeping Around

Put Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie in a movie together, and we’re already sold, but the trailer for Sleeping With Other People gives us more of a reason to see it: aside from the excellent supporting cast, Brie and Sudeikis appear to have great chemistry as old high school pals who happen to bump into each other at a sex addicts meeting and swear they’ll remain “just friends.”

‘Masterminds’ Trailer: Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig Are Hilariously Unlikely Bank Robbers

by Britt Hayes June 23, 2015 @ 7:36 PM
Back in March we saw the first teaser trailer for Masterminds, the new comedy from the director of Napoleon Dynamite, starring Kristen Wiig, Zach Galifianakis and Owen Wilson. That sounds like quite the lineup of comedic talent in a film that may very well redeem director Jared Hess after his follow-up films underperformed and were poorly-received by critics and audiences. The new, full trailer is quite promising, and even more promising are the writing credits: Eastbound and Down collaborators Jody Hill and Danny McBride.

FOX’s Last Man on Earth has been through quite a few ups and downs its first season, between critical wavering and repeated defiance of its title, but with Season 2 already a go, Lord and Miller’s comedy apocalypse brought out all the stops for its first season finale “Screw the Moon.” Find out what major turn and surprise cameo closed out The Last Man on Earth, and what it means for Season 2 by our full review!

Hey, remember when there were reports of a new Fletch movie that could star Jason Sudeikis? And hey, remember when we heard about it again not long after that? That’s pretty much all we heard about the project before it seemed to vanish, but now you get to hear more about it all over again! That planned reboot is still very much planned, with Sudeikis still very much attached to star in the role originated on screen by Chevy Chase.

‘Masterminds’ Trailer: Zach Galifianakis and the Director of ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ Team Up For a Crime Comedy

by Matt Singer March 31, 2015 @ 9:26 AM
This trailer for Masterminds, which teams Zach Galifianakis with Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess, claims it is “based on a true story.” And its Wikipedia page says basically the same thing; that this tale of blundering criminals is inspired by a 1997 robbery that took place in Charlotte North Carolina, where bandits stole over $17 million from the vault of an armored car company.
