It remains to be seen if we’ll ever revisit Wet Hot American Summer with another Ten Years Later (or beyond), but there’s always more to see. An alternate beginning to the sequel series reveals the one (downer) introduction Coop mercifully missed out on.
Wet Hot American Summer fans were happy enough to have Netflix return to Camp Firewood fourteen years after the fact; another reunion Ten Years Later is just gravy. Well, we may yet have more Wet Hot American Summers on deck, as writers have at least considered future seasons.
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.
The Big Sick was one of our favorites at the Sundance and SXSW film festivals this year, and it will probably become one of your favorites too when it hits theaters next month. But you don’t have to wait that long to get a little taste of what makes this movie so wonderful — the first official trailer has arrived for the new rom-com, with a special (and misleading) introduction from stars Kumail Nanjiani and Ray Romano.
There’s always a stupid reason why the couple in a romantic comedy can’t be together until the closing credits. An ex-girlfriend or boyfriend appears at the most narratively conveniently moment, or one of the leads becomes a ghost, or there’s a misunderstanding that could easily be cleared up if the characters just sat and talked to one another for literally 15 seconds. One of the best things about The Big Sick is that the obstacles (plural, there are several) facing this relationship are real and relatable and believable and hugely serious.
It isn’t terribly likely that Wet Hot American Summer will gather its all-star cast for an additional Netflix season beyond the Ten Years Later sequel, so stars and producers David Wain, Michael Showalter and Michael Ian Black will need something else to do. Enter TBS, who booked the trio on a Moon Cruise for their latest parody series.
Michael Showalter is best known for his work alongside David Wain and Michael Ian Black on projects like Wet Hot American Summer and last year’s criminally underseen They Came Together. But Showalter also has a separate filmmaking career, and he’s finally back with his solo follow-up to 2005's surprisingly sweet indie romance The Baxter. The trailer for his latest effort has arrived, touting an impossibly adorable and quirky Sally Field as an administrative clerk who falls for her new — and much younger — supervisor, played by New Girl’s Max Greenfield.
