Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Results’

30 January 2015 12:55 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A healthy body does not always make for a healthy spirit in Andrew Bujalski’s “Results,” a wry relationship comedy about a team of personal trainers, their clients, and their shared desire for progress in and out of the gym. The fifth feature for the Austin-based Bujalski, and his first made with professional actors, “Results” is less of a departure for the writer-director than it might initially seem, as he once again homes in on a group of socially awkward characters taking baby steps towards maturity and (maybe) happiness. Acquired by Magnolia Pictures before its Sundance premiere, this delightfully low-key affair won’t pump major box-office iron, but will easily be seen by more people than Bujalski’s first four features combined, which is a very good result indeed.

A movie about personal trainers is one of the last things anyone would have expected from Bujalski, whose proto-Memblecore early films »

Workaholics: Season Five Ratings

24 January 2015 4:02 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Last season, the ratings for Workaholics on Comedy Central remained pretty steady. How will this office sitcom perform in season five? Could it be cancelled or is it essentially guaranteed to be renewed for a sixth season, so there will be enough episodes for syndication? We'll have to wait and see.

Workaholics revolves around three college dropouts and friends (Blake Anderson, Adam DeVine, and Anders Holm) who become co-workers at a telemarketing company in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Other characters are played by Kyle Newacheck, Maribeth Monroe, Jillian Bell, Erik Griffin, and Waymond Lee. Special guest appearances this season include Curtis Armstrong, Tim Bagley, Jack Black, Dolph Lundgren, Jerry O'Connell, Alan Ritchson, Michael Urie and Amy Yasbeck.

Below are the show's TV ratings, typically the best way to tell if the series will be cancelled or renewed. These figures will be updated as the weeks progress: »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts About It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia

14 January 2015 1:16 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

FX

It’s always Sunny In Philadelphia is set to enter its tenth season this week with the episode The Gang Beats Boggs. Even if you’re not a fan of the show, you should be pleased by this news.

The fact that a show like Sunny, which has grown from humble beginnings and $200 budgets to become one of the funniest, freshest and longest-running shows on television, can make it to ten seasons without being thrown off of the air for obscenity is definitely something that should be celebrated.

Sunny has changed a lot over the years but it has always been twisted, funny and endlessly quotable. The show is about ‘The Gang’ a group of friends who own and operate Paddy’s Pub in Philadelphia but who are constantly sidetracked by whatever scheme they come up with on any given day.

Some of these schemes include trying to solve the gas crisis, »

Jessica Chastain also stars. [Empire via Collider]   Masters of the Universe: A new version of Masters of the Universe, inspired by the popular 1980s animated series, is moving forward. Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) has submitted his rewrite of the screenplay, according to DeVon Franklin, one of the producers.

Jeff Wadlow Teases Completion Of Live-Action He-man Movie Script

2 January 2015 5:26 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Jeff Wadlow (Never Back Down) has turned in his script for the live-action He-Man and the Masters of the Universe movie according to film producer and Columbia Pictures Senior VP Devon Franklin. Hopefully, the second live-action He-Man movie fares better than the first attempt that starred Dolph Lundgren in 1987. Wadlow is also currently attacked to Fox's X-Force movie. Neither film has a confirmed release date meaning that Sony and Fox may soon find themselves competing for Wadlow's services if both films exit the development stage at similar times. Below, you can see a copy of the cover page of the script Wadlow turned in to Franklin. Of note, are the names of the writers who previously worked on the He-Man film including the team of Alex Litvak (Predators, The Three Musketeers) and MIchael Finch (Predators, Hitman: Agent 47); Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2, The Equalizer), and Terry Rossio (Pirates of »

This Rocky IV Poster Is The Most American Thing That's Ever America'ed

1 January 2015 11:19 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

I don.t care what anybody says, Rocky IV is a classic. Sure, it.s not as iconic as the first film and it.s way more cheesy, but nothing beats the showdown between Sylvester Stallone and Dolph Lundgren in the ring. In celebration of the film, the purveyors of "cult decor," Skuzzles, released a limited-edition Rocky IV poster, immortalizing Lundgren as the god-like action star that he is. The folks at /Film were the first to debut this incredible 24x36 inch poster, which was created by Jason Edmiston just for Boxing Day. The print went on sale on December 26 for $50, with a $60 Russian print version. Unfortunately, it.s already sold out, but we couldn.t resist sharing this design, which makes us want to sing of the purple mountain.s majesty. If you weren.t able to get your hands on one, at least you can set it as »
