There’s no arguing that superheroes currently own the cineplex, but in a slight change of pace, one of this upcoming summer’s cape-clad defenders won’t hail from the pages of Marvel or DC. Kids (and nostalgia fetishists in their mid-to-late twenties) will get a colorful crimefighter of a different stripe with Captain Underpants, the computer-animated adaptation of Dav Pilkey’s long-running line of sophomoric chapter books about a delusional elementary school principal’s adventures in doo-doo derring-do. The first trailer hit the internet today, and if you were wondering if it contains the same Steve Aoki club banger as the War Dogs trailer, then have I got some good news for you!
Sing is the latest in 2016’s lineup of animated talking animal movies, and if these new photos are any indication, this musical might be far more charming than the trailers indicate (using pop songs that already feel dated isn’t helping). The stars of the upcoming film posed with their animated counterparts for a series of new images, while some interesting new names have popped up on the cast list.
Three of the funniest minds in modern comedy have teamed up to bring us My Blind Brother, a rom-com about a blind man and his brother both falling for the same woman. Adam Scott plays Robbie, a handsome professional swimmer who also happens to be blind, while Nick Kroll plays his brother Bill, an all-around normal dude who’s always lived in his sibling’s shadow. When they meet Rose, played by Jenny Slate, their sibling rivalry is ignited as they realize they both like her.
FX spinoff network FXX may still seem like the pasture for less favorable shows, but its September lineup of premieres should put plenty of eyes in focus. Not only will the final season of sports fantasy comedy The League premiere this coming September, but also the second run of critical breakout You’re The Worst.
You know Nick Kroll best for his comedic work, and while there’s certainly some of that on display in the trailer for Adult Beginners, we also get to see a bit of his more vulnerable and sensitive side. The first trailer for the new indie dramedy has plenty of laughs and several familiar funny faces, but it also promises to be a thoughtful and insightful film about coming-of-middle-age.
What follows isn’t so much an interview with Nick Kroll as it is … well, I’m not sure exactly what it is. Here’s what happened. I was supposed to interview both Kroll and Joel McHale at the same time about their movie at the Toronto International Film Festival, ‘Adult Beginners.’ At our scheduled interview time, McHale wasn’t there. We were told that he was on his way, stuck in traffic, so we waited. Now, knowing that McHale would soon join us, I didn’t want to ask anything too specific about ‘Adult Beginners,’ just to have to repeat the question again once McHale arrived. McHale never did show up...
Comedy Central's adaptation of classic FunnyorDie sketch "Drunk History" exceeded our wildest expectation across its first season, bringing in countless celebrities both to inebriatedly narrate and star in their best recollections of world events. Now that season 2 has been set for a summer 2014 debut, Comedy Central has revealed the full roster of guest stars, including some famous faces from 'The Walking Dead,' 'Friday Night Lights,' 'Game of Thrones' and many, many more.
The last we saw Seth Rogen, James Franco and Jonah HIll onscreen together was in 'This Is the End,' but the trio won't wait long to reunite as they're already planning one big, R-rated 'Sausage Party.' Yes, it sounds like something one of your bros would say while funneling some PBR at a frat party, but this is in fact the title of Rogen's upcoming animated movie. Funny enough, the recently announced voice cast for the film is also a bit of a sausage fest.
As we've seen all season of FOX's 'New Girl,' the titular Jess and her loft-mates have some pretty famous family members. Not only has the acclaimed comedy's second season featured such famous faces as Rob Reiner and Jamie Lee Curtis as Jess' parents, and recently 'Luck's Dennis Farina as Nick's dad, but an upcoming episode will feature 'The League' star Nick Kroll and comedian Bill Burr as the character's brother and cousin! Find out who else rounds out the famous 'New Girl' family inside!
