One of the unexpected delights of last year proved to be Netflix’s Will Arnett / Aaron Paul animated comedy BoJack Horseman, one that was fortunate enough to gain a renewal, and now has its sights on a second coming. The streaming service has officially set a July premiere for BoJack Horseman’s return, along with an angelic new poster.
Although the Oscars infamously snubbed The LEGO Movie in the Best Animated Feature category, the joyous and hilarious movie got the last laugh at the ceremony itself. The film was nominated for its delightful song “Everything is Awesome!” and the live performance of the impossibly catchy number brought the house down and probably made everyone feel really bad about not giving the full movie its due.
We don’t yet know when Netflix will dust off ‘Arrested Development’ for another season (despite what certain stars might say), but Will Arnett certainly isn’t hurting for work at the streaming service. Following the success of ‘BoJack Horseman,’ Netflix has officially ordered Will Arnett’s new guru comedy ‘Flaked’ for a full season in 2016.
Just yesterday we reported on an update from filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller regarding their script for ‘The LEGO Movie 2,’ who offered up some plot details for the coming sequel. Today brings another update from Lord and Miller—this time regarding the highly-anticipated spin-off ‘The LEGO Batman Movie,’ in which Will Arnett will reprise his role as everyone’s favorite brooding superhero. We kind of know what ‘The LEGO Movie 2' is about, but what will LEGO Batman's new spin-off be about?
We’ve seen Batman envisioned time and again on screens big and small, and yet it took a tiny LEGO version of the character to take us by surprise with Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s hilarious take on the character in this year’s ‘The LEGO Movie.’ Voiced by Will Arnett, this version of Batman lovingly satirized the Caped Crusader. The character was such a hit that we’re getting a spinoff in 2017 ahead of the ‘LEGO Movie’ sequel, and the writers have dropped some details about what we can expect.
When 'The LEGO Movie' instantly became one of the biggest critical and financial successes of 2014, the sequel announcement was inevitable. However, in a surprising turn of events, 'The LEGO Movie 2' has been delayed in favor of a spin-off staring the film's hilariously twisted take on Batman. Yes, LEGO Batman is getting his own movie.
During the taping of last night's 'Conan,' the heartbreaking news of Robin Williams' passing was announced. Instead of ignoring the news or saving it for tomorrow or not acknowledging it, host Conan O'Brien took it upon himself to share it with a shocked studio audience, sidekick Andy Richter, and guest Will Arnett. Still stunned and reeling from the news, the trio -- all of whom had worked with Williams in the past -- shared their thoughts on the actor and comedian.
You may remember a TV series from the early 2000s that resurfaced on Netflix in 2013 for a fourth season, bearing the amusingly ironic title of 'Arrested Development.' People had heard of it. The understandably disjointed reunion of one of TV's most beloved casts proved somewhat unsatisfying in the end, but in a world where 'Community' hangs onto a sixth season by the skin of its teeth, surely 'Arrested Development' will reach its own inevitable movie, yes? Let's find out what 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' star and Hollywood soothsayer Will Arnett has to say on the matter!
Will Arnett's latest feature film, 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,' is heavy on the kicking and punching -- it is about turtles who like karate, after all -- but that doesn't necessarily mean that the funny guy has his own martial arts chops. When the comedian hit up 'The Tonight Show' last night to chat about the film, host Jimmy Fallon couldn't help but challenge him to a kicking-based game: Karate Pinata, a combination of ancient disciplines and modern party games.
The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will take on Shredder and the Foot Clan this coming Friday when the film hits theaters, and more than 25 newly released photos from the reboot show off the many, heavily CG-ed characters, like Splinter, Silver Samurai Shredder, April O'Neil and her scrappy camera guy, and, of course, the heroes in a half-shell.
