It’s been a good long while since FX’s Fargo adaptation spoke anything of its second seasons, don’t ya know, and darn tootin’ we’ve waited, you betcha! Noah Hawley’s adapted breed of snowfallen ultra-violence is on full display in the first full teaser of Fargo Season 2, but who might be on the on the wrong end of a good pecking?
Say what you will about How I Met Your Mother squandering titular star Cristin Milioti, FX’s hotly-anticipated Fargo Season 2 will give the actress another chance at a revered matriarch. Milioti will join the cast of FX’s Emmy-nominated Coen brothers adaptation in the Season 2 role of an oft-discussed mother, but will her fate prove as dire this time around?
This is a fun clip. It’s from a recent appearance from actor, comedian, and author Patton Oswalt (whose new book, ‘Silver Screen Fiend,’ all about his obsession with movies, will probably be of great interest to ScreenCrush readers) at the WORD Bookstore in Jersey City, where he did a public conversation with actor Patrick Wilson. Oswalt is a hardcore comic-book nerd in addition to his passion for film, and Wilson starred in one of the most polarizing comic-book adaptations of all time, Zack Snyder’s slavishly faithful version of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ ‘Watchmen.’ When a fan asked a question about the movie, both Oswalt and Wilson shared their honest feelings about the project, which you can watch above.
News of FX’s ‘Fargo’ season 2 had proven slow outside the casting of ‘Breaking Bad’ star Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst, but like a Brainerd snowfall, it’ll bury us all, you betcha! Not only has Patrick Wilson joined the cast as our new Lou Solverson, but so too will the ‘Insidious’ star be joined by Ted Danson, ‘Parks and Rec’'s Nick Offerman, Kieran Culkin, Brad Garrett…it’s a lot, okay? There’s a gosh-darn lot of ‘em.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but filming a sex scene for a movie is one pretty awkward affair. You and someone you've started developing a decent work relationship with have to strip naked and pretend to get all hot and bothered while pressing your bodies against each other and heavily breathing in each other's faces. Even more awkward? How about the director shouting, "Great fucking!"
'Stretch' has gone through a bit of a rough period. The film, directed by Joe Carnahan and produced by Jason Blum, was originally set for a theatrical premiere back in March, but Universal Studios decided to drop it from its release slate, choosing to utilize other creative methods. Now, with an Amazon and iTunes release on October 7, and a VOD release on October 14, the first 'Stetch' trailer has debuted online.
Just when it seemed that Marvel's 'Ant-Man' was getting back on track after all that Edgar Wright-exiting and replacement director-searching, it appears that the Peyton Reed production has been hit with another major setback. Deadline reports that Patrick Wilson, Matt Gerald, and Kevin Weisman have all dropped out of the film, scheduled to go into production later this year. With Marvel set to hit Hall H tomorrow for one of their always-impressive Comic-Con presentations, it sure sounds like the 'Ant-Man' table will be unexpectedly undermanned.
As ABC plans to premiere a new hourlong special diving deeper into the Marvel Cinematic Universe than ever before, the studio continues bulking up its properties. Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man' is the latest to make some major additions to its cast as the studio is currently in negotiations with 'The Conjuring' (and 'The Conjuring 2') star Patrick Wilson, along with the now confirmed talks with Michael Pena.
'Strech', the new action-thriller starring Chris Pine, Jessica Alba and Patrick Wilson, was scheduled to be released in just two months (on March 21), but now it won't be released at all. Universal Pictures abruptly pulled the plug on the film at the last minute after they balked at the $20-40 million needed to properly promote the film. If you know 'Stretch' director Joe Carnahan at all, you know he wasn't happy.
Director James Wan and writer Leigh Whannell return to the spooky fun house with 'Insidious Chapter 2,' marking Wan's second horror film release in as many months after this summer's surprise hit 'The Conjuring.' Unfortunately, the sequel gives diminishing returns as the scares are dialed down and the laughs (intentional and unintentional) are cranked way up.
