Our dreams of a live-action Addams Family movie starring Oscar Isaac as Gomez may not come true any time soon, but until then we have the next best thing: A new animated movie featuring Isaac as the voice of the spooky-sexy patriarch of the famously creepy (and kooky!) family. In addition to revealing the first photo from The Addams Family, MGM has added a few more actors to their scary-talented roster, including Charlize Theron as Morticia.
We’re not quite ready to say goodbye to Portlandia just yet, but thankfully, we have time. The ever-weird social satire will return for its eighth and final season in January, while the traditionally stacked guest roster now includes Tessa Thompson, Rachel Bloom and the Oh, Hello guys.
Seth Rogen and longtime partner Evan Goldberg recently launched And Action!, a new high school program that offers young, aspiring filmmakers the chance to learn the business by making a short film. But it probably never occurred to 17-year-old director Eduardo Cho and his creative collaborator, 16-year-old Kimberly Carrillo, that Rogen himself would actually show up to set — and bring several of his famous friends with him to star in Cho’s short.
There’s no arguing that superheroes currently own the cineplex, but in a slight change of pace, one of this upcoming summer’s cape-clad defenders won’t hail from the pages of Marvel or DC. Kids (and nostalgia fetishists in their mid-to-late twenties) will get a colorful crimefighter of a different stripe with Captain Underpants, the computer-animated adaptation of Dav Pilkey’s long-running line of sophomoric chapter books about a delusional elementary school principal’s adventures in doo-doo derring-do. The first trailer hit the internet today, and if you were wondering if it contains the same Steve Aoki club banger as the War Dogs trailer, then have I got some good news for you!
Sing is the latest in 2016’s lineup of animated talking animal movies, and if these new photos are any indication, this musical might be far more charming than the trailers indicate (using pop songs that already feel dated isn’t helping). The stars of the upcoming film posed with their animated counterparts for a series of new images, while some interesting new names have popped up on the cast list.
Three of the funniest minds in modern comedy have teamed up to bring us My Blind Brother, a rom-com about a blind man and his brother both falling for the same woman. Adam Scott plays Robbie, a handsome professional swimmer who also happens to be blind, while Nick Kroll plays his brother Bill, an all-around normal dude who’s always lived in his sibling’s shadow. When they meet Rose, played by Jenny Slate, their sibling rivalry is ignited as they realize they both like her.
FX spinoff network FXX may still seem like the pasture for less favorable shows, but its September lineup of premieres should put plenty of eyes in focus. Not only will the final season of sports fantasy comedy The League premiere this coming September, but also the second run of critical breakout You’re The Worst.
You know Nick Kroll best for his comedic work, and while there’s certainly some of that on display in the trailer for Adult Beginners, we also get to see a bit of his more vulnerable and sensitive side. The first trailer for the new indie dramedy has plenty of laughs and several familiar funny faces, but it also promises to be a thoughtful and insightful film about coming-of-middle-age.
What follows isn’t so much an interview with Nick Kroll as it is … well, I’m not sure exactly what it is. Here’s what happened. I was supposed to interview both Kroll and Joel McHale at the same time about their movie at the Toronto International Film Festival, ‘Adult Beginners.’ At our scheduled interview time, McHale wasn’t there. We were told that he was on his way, stuck in traffic, so we waited. Now, knowing that McHale would soon join us, I didn’t want to ask anything too specific about ‘Adult Beginners,’ just to have to repeat the question again once McHale arrived. McHale never did show up...
