Watch a Trailer for CBS' Upcoming 'Rush Hour' TV Series

13 August 2015 5:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

I just happened to stumble across this trailer for the upcoming CBS TV series on YouTube; apparently it's been online for a couple of months now, but we definitely haven't posted it on this blog, because I wasn't aware that a trailer even existed. It could very well be that this is the trailer that was shown during CBS' upfronts presentation in the spring, and it was eventually leaked online. Which means that there still may be an official trailer coming from CBS that will be released closer to the date the series premieres during the first half of 2016, so this may not be the final.  Regardless, here's your first official look at CBS' "Rush Hour" series, which the network has set for a mid-season 201/2016 premiere. Previously, Damon Wayans Jr was offered the part originated by Chris Tucker in the movie franchise, but the role was eventually given to actor »

Antoine Fuqua's 'Training Day' TV Project Lands at CBS

13 August 2015 3:25 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

This will be at least the 3rd cop movie with a black lead that CBS has considered turning into a weekly TV series - "Beverly Hills Cop" and "Rush Hour" are the other 2. Of course we know that the network would eventually pass on the "Beverly Hills Cop" TV series which was to star Brandon T. Jackson as Axel Foley's son (although a pilot was produced); the "Rush Hour" series, on the other hand, was ordered to series this year, as a mid-season replacement in early 2016. Jon Foo and Justin Hires are replacing Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in the roles of Lee and Carter from the original movie franchise.  The network (maybe the *whitest* of the so-called Big Four - ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC) has given a pilot commitment to a "Training Day" TV series adaptation, which, as was reported on Monday of this week, Antoine Fuqua had been »

Rush Hour 4 A Possibility If This Happens

31 July 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The cross-cultural comedy team up Rush Hour spawned three movies, though there hasn.t been one since 2007.s Rush Hour 3. In the ensuing years there have been sporadic rumblings that Rush Hour 4 could be in the works, and though he doesn.t rule out the possibility, director Brett Ratner says there is one key thing standing in the way: time. Ratner was at the Television Critics Association summer press tour to promote the National Geographic series Breakthrough, on which he directed an episode. When Slashfilm had the opportunity to catch up with the filmmaker, they asked about Rush Hour 4 he said: We.re always talking about it. We.ve just got to find the time between Chris Tucker, myself, and Jackie. If you.re familiar with the franchise, you are well aware that by "Jackie," Ratner means legendary martial artist Jackie Chan. And if you didn.t know that, »

Under the pact with Simmons’ new-media company All Def Digital, he and his team will create and develop television projects for the network. Simmons currently has five projects in the works with HBO.

All Def Digital is producing three of the five projects on which Simmons and HBO are collaborating, including a new series that brings the best acts from All Def Digital’s weekly live comedy night. “These Are My Friends,” a comedy series from Shaka King that takes an original and authentic look at hip-hop culture, is also in development. Another comedy, titled “The Broken Lizard Show,” in association with Broken Lizard comedy troupe, will take an innovative and comedic look at race when, hundreds of years in the future, a space ship exploring the galaxy discovers the last white man in the universe. »

Fourth "Rush Hour," "Hills Cop" Updates

30 July 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With the "Rush Hour" franchise being rebooted on the small screen this Fall with a new TV series for CBS, does that mean we will never see a "Rush Hour 4" on the big screen with original stars Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker?

Series director Brett Ratner was asked about that this week at the TCA Summer tour, and he tells Slashfilm that it does not prevent the possibility at all: "No, not at all. It has nothing to do with it. We're always talking about it. We've just got to find the time between Chris Tucker, myself and Jackie."

Rather was also asked about the fourth "Beverly Hills Cop" which he is still attached to direct. Renter says the project is still undergoing re-writes: "Working on the script, working on the script. It's a longer process. It's not easy. A lot of pressure on that one." »

Last Week On Late Night, 7/20/15: Conan says teens don’t like weed, and John Oliver says Americans need to eat more food

20 July 2015 3:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The summer is a confusing time for late night shows. With vacation time, shows are often off, then on, seemingly at random. When shows do air, there’s fewer dangerous animals on, and more affect-less athletes. And yet, some really funny things happen on late night during these lesser watched months. Jimmy Fallon nearly lost a hand, Conan rode into Comic-Con with a Mad Max war band. We got to see Colbert interview Eminem on Monroe, Michigan public access TV. Jon Stewart’s Daily Show month long “moment of zen” farewell continues, streaming every episode back-to-back, available globally. It wasn’t all bad.

Last week, Bill Hader and Amy Schumer were doing the rounds for Trainwreck, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were reunited with Jimmy, Emma Stone was on Conan, Meyers got a dose of Schumer and Jim Gaffigan, and Corden horsed around with Ian McKellen. Plus, John Oliver took »

Chris Tucker Talks About Recent Visit To China To See Rush Hour Co-Star Jackie Chan

14 July 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I’m a huge Chris Tucker fan. Always have been.

From his scene-stealing performance in The Fifth Element, to Russell Simmons’ HBO Def Comedy Jam and 1995’s Friday opposite Ice Cube, starring in Money Talks with Charlie Sheen, through to his role in Silver Linings Playbook, Tucker is forever a pleasure to watch and is still one of the funniest comedians.

I was thrilled to read that the actor would be headlining his first full length stand-up comedy special titled “Chris Tucker Live” which had its premiere on Friday, July 10 on Netflix. It is one of the funniest stand-up shows to come along in years.

In the hilarious show, Chris Tucker returns to the stage he loves and showcases his mind-blowing comedic chops. From his pitch perfect impersonations of Michael Jackson and Bill Clinton, his take on first dates and marriage, visiting Oprah Winfrey’s house, to his singular on-stage physicality, »

Best of Late Night TV: Paul Rudd's Drinko Game, Jack Black and Boy George Sing The Doors

14 July 2015 12:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

You know Plinko, the "Price Is Right" game? Monday night on "The Tonight Show," the human perfection that is "Ant-Man" star Paul Rudd did a version with Jimmy Fallon called Drinko, requiring them to potentially drink things like "Bacon Soda" and Pickle Juice. They both had to drink Gravy, which is too nasty, but one of them ended up having to mix Gravy with Tequila: "They call it 'Thanksgiving' south of the border."

In his interview, Paul talked to Jimmy about trying to do a full "Basic Instinct" on his "Ant-Man" co-star Michael Douglas. It failed. But it's hilarious. It ended up looking like he was "pleasuring himself" while Michael was doing a monologue. »

Chris Tucker Live Trailer and Poster Tease Netflix Stand-Up Special

6 July 2015 11:31 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Netflix has released the first poster and trailer for Chris Tucker's impending stand-up special, Chris Tucker Live, the first live stand-up special to feature the Rush Hour alumn. Following a scene-stealing supporting role in David O. Russell's largely disposable Silver Lining Playbook, Tucker has been slowly been creeping back into the spotlight, following a long absence from film and television starting in the mid-late aughts. Before that, he was best known, of course, as the animated partner of Jackie Chan's hard-nosed cop in the Rush Hour trilogy, as well as excellent supporting turns in Quentin Tarantino's sublime Jackie Brown, the classic comedy Friday, and the less-than-sufferable Money Talks, in which he co-starred with noted inebriant fanatic Charlie Sheen. [caption id="attachment_184880" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via New Line[/caption] From the little evidence gleaned by the fleet trailer, Tucker's stand-up swings wildly from the personal to the professional, and the clash between the two. »
