Netflix premieres enough original series week-to-week that you’d be forgiven a few lost in the shuffle. That said, did we know Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig and Jaden Smith were dropping a bonkers New York-inspired anime featuring Jude Law, Susan Sarandon and more? You have to see this Neo Yokio trailer.
Guest stars are something of an afterthought when it comes to the sci-fi madness of Rick and Morty, but Season 3 won’t be without familiar voices. Not only will co-creator Dan Harmon stage another Community homage of sorts, but Susan freaking Sarandon will also lend her voice.
We hold these truths to be self-evident: that in the film A Bad Moms Christmas, there will be moms, they will be bad, and it will be Christmas. The sequel to 2016’s sleeper hit has now gotten its first trailer, and if nothing else, I can confirm for you beyond any shadow of a doubt that A Bad Moms Christmas will star a collection of moms, all of whom will indulge in varying levels of badness. This year, the reason for the season is mom-ing, and doing it badly.
Any fan of French-Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan has kept a close eye on his upcoming English-language debut, The Death & Life of John F. Donovan. The two-time Cannes Jury Prize winning filmmaker has been working on the project for over a year now, and finally today brings the first official synopsis, character details, and first official photos.
But it’s true that the upcoming sequel A Bad Moms Christmas will explore the bad moms that originally birthed the bad moms we came to know and love in last year’s sleeper hit. Variety reported last night that a power trio of Susan Sarandon, Christine Baranski, and Cheryl Hines have all joined the cast of the Yuletide-appropriate installment of the Bad Moms franchise, and the item reveals that they form the first generation of moms who dared to be bad. The new film revolves around one unending visit home for Christmas from the bad moms’ worse moms, with Baranski tormenting Mila Kunis, Sarandon nagging Kathryn Hahn, and (the 51-year-old) Hines portraying the mother of (the 36-year-old) Kristen Bell. Will the revelation that Bell’s Kiki was raised by a 15-year-old number among the twists in the new film? Maybe, but probably not.
Viewers of Ryan Murphy’s FX Feud are probably too distracted by the A-list talent chewing through their televisions to realize most – if not all – of these historical figures have passed. In fact, only screen legend Olivia de Havilland remains alive at a robust 100 (!), and her input would be nothing less than a gift. Well, someone got it, and it might be the most gloriously IDGAF burn you read all year.
What with social cliques, homework, and hormones, high school is tough enough already. Add to that a massive natural disaster, and it’s a different sort of catastrophe entirely. My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea is both exactly what it sounds like and much more than that, an animated riff on the likes of San Andreas that adds an eccentric sense of humor to the genre. The newly unveiled trailer offers a sample of the thrills (jumping across shark-infested waters!) and the laughs (the bookcase-amputation joke is aces) to be had in this odd little festival favorite.
Ryan Murphy’s second FX anthology proved a surprising hit, but can Feud recapture the same magic? See for yourself in the first official footage of Feud: Bette and Joan, as Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon take Hollywood rivalry to biblical proportions.
Hollywood’s gonna keep returning to the well of the tried-and-true in search of remake material until it runs dry, which could never happen, for all we know. To mix a metaphor, the ‘80s and ’90s have been thoroughly strip-mined for new #content, to the point where stars of beloved nostalgia objects have to specifically state that they’d prefer not to see a remake to pre-empt what feels like an inevitable greenlight. Geena Davis is the latest celebrity to come out against the recent remakeapalooza, specifically voicing her disapproval of any potential plans to rework her most timeless success of all, Cutthroat Island. (That‘s supposed to be a joke.)
