It’s only taken sixteen years, but Wet Hot American Summer is finally taking us Ten Years Later. The whole Camp Firewood gang is back for the Netflix sequel series trailer, which now sets an August premiere.
Sometimes a movie and a release date just make sense. While blockbuster Hollywood releases can often feel like a game of musical chairs — where every studio scrambles to find a summer release date that isn’t already occupied by a superhero movie or major franchise — occasionally, a movie hits theaters at just the right to really leverage a holiday. Take Amy Schumer’s Snatched. With the film set for an April 12 release date, it is perfectly situated to take advantage of Mother’s Day weekend. For once, you can take your mom out to a movie that you might both actually enjoy.
Thanks to his role on American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson, John Travolta is kind of winning audiences back following a run of lackluster action flicks. I Am Wrath could still very well be another one of those lesser Travolta outings, and the first trailer teases a revenge thriller in the vein of Eye for an Eye with the actor in the Sally Field role. Oh, and his hair is just as bewildering as ever, really giving Nicolas Cage a run for his money.
No one knew for certain if Wet Hot American Summer could pull off its prequel reunion series on Netflix, but by the full trailer, the First Day of Camp looks like everything we’ve dreamed. See the star-studded cast reunited (and joined by some other ridiculously famous folk) for our first official trailer, along with a slick new poster!
It took 14 years, but the cast of cult classic Wet Hot American Summer has finally reassembled on Netflix for the First Day of Camp. It’s hard to know how well the 2001 film will hold up as an eight-episode series, but the first magnificent photos of the star-studded cast stuffing themselves into the old costume are everything we dreamed of.
As if any disbelief over Netflix’s impending ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ revival miniseries lingered, the streaming service has already taken us back to Camp Firewood to rejoin the cast. See the first teaser for Netflix’s apt and newly-named ‘Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,’ confirming the entire cast’s return as early as this summer!
It’s officially official, Netflix has become the patron saint of revivals. After the streaming service pulled a dead dove out of the hat to revive ‘Arrested Development,’ star-studded 2001 cult classic ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ has been set as a limited series revival, with near of the entire cast set to return. This news tastes like a burger, but we still like it.
Before 'The Fault in Our Stars,' before 'Divergent,' Shailene Woodley filmed a small film from director Gregg Araki called 'White Bird in a Blizzard,' another coming-of-age tale for the actress. Though our critic had her own issues with film when she saw it at Sundance, a new trailer has debuted, and it's always great to see the lovely Eva Green smoldering up the screen.
