In the upcoming Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 (I’m excited for this movie, but that’s the worst title; they should have called it Super Wreck-It Ralph), Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Venelope (Sarah Silverman) have to travel into the Internet to find a part to fix the broken Sugar Rush video game. At tonight’s panel at D23, the revealed that Ralph and Venelope will be visiting websites including sites for Marvel, Star Wars, and Disney Princesses.

Disney showed off some footage from the upcoming Wreck-It Ralph sequel, Ralph Breaks The Internet, at its D23 expo today, revealing that Empire star Taraji P. Henson has joined the movie’s cast. Henson will play Yesss, a denizen of the internet, who helps Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) make their way through its hordes of spammers and rampaging “sexy housewives” ads.
Henson wasn’t the only cast member the footage highlighted; according to Variety, the clip also contained appearances from a number of Disney princesses—including Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Tiana, Rapunzel, Merida, Anna, and Moana—each voiced by their original voice actress. (Who all proceded to take the D23 stage.)
Bringing in $470 million and an Oscar nomination, the original Wreck-It Ralph was a solid hit for Disney back in 2012. The sequel is set to arrive next year, on March 9. »

Taraji P. Henson has been cast as an algorithm named Yesss in Ralph Breaks The Internet: Wreck -It Ralph 2, the sequel to the 2012 Disney Animation pic. The news was just unveiled during a presentation at D23, Disney’s annual fan confab in Anaheim. The sequel will see Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) and Ralph (John C. Reilly) escaping the arcade and entering the Internet. The second installment of the video game romp that nods to the 8-bit '80s will be released on November… »
It was announced at Disney’s D23 convention Friday in Anaheim, Calif., that Henson would be joining as a new character named Yesss (yes, that’s the proper spelling). Rough footage showed her character to be an expert on the internet.
The panel also included footage which showed Ralph and Vanellope heading into the internet. The minute they arrived, the two are bombarded with people holding signs saying things like “Sexy housewives want to meet you” and “my sister-in-law got rich.”
Yesss shows the two around the Internet, including showing them a Marvel-yourself booth and introducing them to all the Disney princesses, who are voiced by their original actresses, who it turns out are all very misunderstood (i.e., Jasmine is allergic to cats).
“Those perfect models of femininity are the princesses,” Yesss »

Chicago – It occurred to me in assessing “The Little Hours” that the basic premise is somewhat like “The Beguiled” – a man is taken in, rooster-like, into a henhouse where there are women with “needs.” Except this time, instead of a girl’s boarding school, it is a 14th Century nunnery. Get thee to it, if thou wants to laugheth.
There is basically one premise… the nuns are horny and Dave Franco is willing, or two, if you count that all the participants in the film speak in modern day language, including the frequent throwing of f-bombs. The casting is the key, with the great Aubrey Plaza again stealing many scenes, and the aforementioned Dave Franco’s innocent interaction with his fate, as he gets some action. Throw in Allison Brie, John C. Reilly, Nick Offerman and Fred Armisen (as a Catholic bishop), and this broadside satire of medieval and religiosity does have its moments. »

With his devilish smirk and playful demeanor, Alan Cumming has always been a charmer. Exuding an uncommon blend of boyishness and gravitas in high-profile roles like “Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion” and “The Good Wife,” to his tour-de-force one-man “Macbeth” on Broadway, Cumming has built a reputation as one of the most versatile, provocative, and charismatic actors working today. Which is why it’s unsettling to see him play a character who is, as he put it, “kind of not very nice.”
The film is “After Louie,” and the role is Sam Cooper, a prickly visual artist who spends his days paying for sex with younger men and sifting through archival footage of a friend who died of AIDS. Based on the experiences of writer/director Vincent Gagliostro, Sam is one of the lucky few survivors who lived through the AIDS epidemic and came out the other side. »

The Little Hours, 2017.
Written and Directed by Jeff Baena
Starring Alison Brie, Dave Franco, Kate Micucci, Aubrey Plaza, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Fred Armisen, Jemima Kirke, Adam Pally, Paul Weitz, Jon Gabrus, Lauren Weedman, Paul Reiser, and Nick Offerman
A young servant fleeing from his master takes refuge at a convent full of emotionally unstable nuns in the Middle Ages.
For his third feature, writer/director Jeff Baena (Life After Beth, Joshy) has concocted a type of comedy largely missing from the genre’s modern-day state, which is essentially plopping current day lexicons, attitudes, and personalities into a historical setting, specifically here an Italian convent (the movie was actually filmed on-location in Tuscany) somewhere during the 1300s. Not only does such a premise offer up a number of humorous scenarios regardless of variables such as who and where, it allows any feature that chooses this route to present »

“The Little Hours” has pissed off Catholics in a big way. The Catholic group America Needs Fatima recently launched an online petition opposing Jeff Baena’s comedy about three foul-mouthed, sexually liberated nuns played by Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate Micucci. Set in Italy in 1347, the film follows the nuns as their world is disrupted by a young servant (Dave Franco) who takes refuge at their convent after escaping from his master. Fred Armisen, Molly Shannon and John C. Reilly co-star in the film, which premiered in the 2017 Sundance Film Festival’s Midnight section.
Last month, America Needs Fatima’s executive director sent a letter to “The Little Hours” distributor Gunpowder & Sky on behalf of the petition’s more than 31,000 signatories saying the film “wrongly features priests and nuns taking part »

Writer/director Jeff Baena draws on Giovanni Boccaccio’s 14th The Decameron for The Little Hours, a bawdy, absurd comedy where the F-bombs fly through air thick with schemes and suppressed lust. Some audiences may object to foul-mouthed women religious but for those who don’t, Baena’s comedy is very amusing, as well as a clever updated twist on a medieval classic.
Nuns in the 14th century were different from today, as a convent was a place where prosperous families could send unmarried daughters or in which women without wealth could shelter, as much as a place for the religiously devout. Like Chaucer’s later The Canterbury Tales, these women in habits could speak in plain, »

Top 10 Movie Kisses for International Kissing DayTop 10 Movie Kisses for International Kissing DayAmanda Wood7/6/2017 10:00:00 Am
Today is International Kissing Day, and you know what that means: we’ve got a list to celebrate.
We couldn’t let this day pass by without commemorating it through a celebration of our favourite on-screen kisses. There have been many memorable make-out moments on-screen throughout the years, but these ten movies have what we consider to be the best of the best. It was honestly difficult to narrow this list down, and much debate was had over the memorability of certain smooches.
We think we’ve got the definitive best kisses list here, with everything from comedies to classic romances to animated films making the cut. Check out the list below!
Never Been Kissed (1999)
Could we really make a top kisses list without including Never Been Kissed? Absolutely not. This delightful tale »

The couple, who have been married since March of this year, star together in The Little Hours, a raunchy comedy about three sexually frustrated nuns (Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci) whose lives are turned upside down after an attractive male servant (Franco) arrives at their medieval convent.
The film, which was shot entirely in Italy, did not have an actual script during production.
“It felt exciting to me,” Brie said during a Q&A for the film following a New York screening. “It felt like what I would imagine '70s filmmaking to be: experimental filmmaking.”
It was made all the more exciting by the inclusion of her longtime friend, Plaza, and husband, Franco.
