The coming weeks will see a great deal of digital ink devoted to the discarded material and pivots that late-night hosts faced in the wake of Tuesday’s election, and perhaps none would have been so biting as Full Frontal’s Samantha Bee.

FX’s Archer made up for a late start to the year with an impressive shot-for-shot remake of the Magnum P.I. opening credits, but it seems the Tom Selleck spoof was more than homage. Our first Season 7 details confirm the former spy team will move to California to start a new agency, with guest turns from J.K. Simmons to Patton Oswalt.

I’m on the fence about Deadpool as a movie. On the one hand, I like the irreverent tone and how it mostly seems to be sending up all the cliches we’ve become used to in modern superhero movies. On the other, I could see this potentially getting annoying and grating over the course of an entire movie. But, one thing I think we can universally agree on is that the marketing so far has been brilliant. Latest case in point? This Los Angeles billboard which uses emoji in the dumbest and most immature way. And it’s fantastic.

The cast for James Ponsoldt’s The Circle continues to get better and better — comedian / author / actor Patton Oswalt is the latest to join the lineup, which already includes Tom Hanks, Emma Watson, Karen Gillan and John Boyega.

Patton Oswalt’s Idea for an ‘Unbreakable’ Trilogy Is Actually Pretty Great

by Britt Hayes March 5, 2015 @ 6:15 PM
Say what you will about M. Night Shyamalan, but the director delivered a few good movies before many people seemed to tire of his twist-y schtick. Unbreakable is one of those movies: a superhero and super-villain origin thriller with an ending that was kind of perfect—it left us wanting more while simultaneously leaving us averse to the idea of a sequel that might water down the concept. We’re not the only ones intrigued by the notion of a sequel. Comedian Patton Oswalt isn’t just into the idea, but he has a detailed plan for a whole Unbreakable trilogy, and it sounds pretty awesome.
