The entertainment industry has done Bryan Cranston dirty. His award-hoarding turn as mild-mannered meth kingpin Walt White on Breaking Bad should have cracked Hollywood wide open for him, with high-power producers lining up to cast him in the next big prestige release. But for every Trumbo (which earned Cranston an Oscar nomination, despite plenty of shortcomings), there is a Why Him?, and the soggy prosthetic moose scrotum that goes with it.
We all avoid our Friends From College like the Dickens (okay, just us), but Netflix’s newest comedy will make it impossible. How I Met Your Mother alum Cobie Smulders and (technically) Keegan-Michael Key will lead a new Netflix comedy series from Neighbors creator Nick Stoller, bringing together Friends From College.
The Simpsons still has a few surprises left in its old age, and after going live this past season, Springfield will chart a new frontier: the full hour! After 28 years, America’s favorite family will run a full hour-long episode for the very first time, with special guest Taraji P. Henson and more.
We’re just over a year from the end of Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, and even with all 300+ sketches available online, fans can’t help missing the duo’s comedic voice. Keegan-Michael Key, at least, isn’t sure where they’d begin to weigh in on topics like the current election, but thinks Key & Peele itself might find space to return a few years down the line, whether a new season, or a sketch movie.
‘Keanu’ director Peter Atencio is, apparently, a little sick of all the kitten cuteness.
From the director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, that movie where Jason Segel showed the world his penis, and Neighbors, where a woman wears a fake penis like a necklace, comes Storks, an adorable animated movie for the whole family! Of course!
Key and Peele’s Keanu may not have made the cinematic splash we all hoped, but Key & Peele itself is still going strong. If you don’t believe us, feast your eyes on over 300 sketches from the Comedy Central favorite, newly-released in a full online destination for all things Key & Peele!
A film about the world of improv comedy from Mike Birbiglia will be an instant must-see for some of you, but if you’re anything like me, the phrase “improv comedy” usually makes your eyes roll. If this trailer doesn’t sway you (and it should), then rest assured that Don’t Think Twice is an incredibly funny and surprisingly relatable comedy that might make you shed a tear or two.
Take the comedic talents of Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key, add an intensely adorable kitten, the musical stylings of George Michael, and a riff on John Wick, and you get Keanu — an action comedy that is mostly enjoyable, until it stretches its premise a little too thin and falls victim to the narrative demands of a feature-length film. Perhaps fittingly enough, Key and Peele’s first film outing is at its most lively when the titular kitten is on screen. Remove the kitten from the equation and you have a film that adheres a little too closely to the action flick formula it seeks to emulate, particularly during the lengthy third act.
Believe me when I tell you that the absolute best thing about Keanu is the titular kitten, who doesn’t just steal each scene he’s in — he totally hijacks them. Unfortunately, there isn’t enough Keanu in Keanu, but this new spoof trailer for Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele’s upcoming comedy rectifies that situation, giving us a version of the film that stars nothing but cats.
