Top Lists: The Other Kind of Labor Movies

9 September 2016 5:55 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Last weekend, we honored Labor Day with a list of films celebrating labor unions and working people. But as every mother knows there is another kind of “labor.” Two things that Hollywood loves – weddings and births – are the subjects of countless films. To celebrate that other kind of “labor day,” here are a half-dozen movies (in no particular order) about having a baby with a birth scene.

1. Knocked Up (2007)

Judd Apatow’s guy-humor comedy features Kathryn Heigl in a very graphic birth scene with some shots you won’t soon forget (in the unedited version), which some have suggested might serve as birth control for some women out there.

2. The Back-Up Plan (2010)

Probably the weirdest movie birth scene -a home birth in a pool, surrounded by your closest friends, some of whom do not want to be there. Not sure an audience is really called for with this significant life event, »

Why You Should See It: Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are currently two of Hollywood's most in demand talents and seeing them lighting up the screen together, in a Derek Cianfrance film no less, should be a treat.

Morgan - Sept 2nd

Why You Should See It: Kate Mara heads to space again with a Scott. This time, however, it's Luke, Ridley's son, in what promises to be a thrilling sci-fi debut (in the vein of Ex Machina) for the filmmaker.

Yoga Hosers - Sept 2nd

Why You Should See It: Kevin Smith's name should be enough to get you into theatres for Yoga Hosers. But if it's not, you can also look forward to Mr. Johnny Depp reprising his role of Guy Lapointe.

Zootopia Blu-Ray Review

5 August 2016 12:33 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

There was a point when you had to wonder about Disney films, especially when Pixar seemed to putting out the movies to watch. But, with Frozen, Big Hero 6, and now Zootopia, Disney is amazing audiences again. Not that Disney films were ever disappointing, but consistent 10/10 ratings is a different level.

The story of Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), the cute and fuzzy bunny who just won’t give up on her dreams (despite her father’s advice), and Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), the con artist fox, quickly became one of the most celebrated films of the year.

See our full Zootopia movie review here.

Zootopia, though almost bizarrely unassuming in its delivery, manages to mix genres, offer up characters most movies should envy, and all while mixing in fun and beauty in a way that would make Walt himself proud.

Best of all, as you might easily imagine, the film »

Miller, Kate McKinnon, and Rob Cordry, the stage is set for a christmas party of Project X proportions as Bateman and Miller must save their office from closing by impressing a potential with an epic office party.

If over the top, crude comedy is your bag, this is the christmas movie for you. Released: December 9th »

Watch Jason Bateman in Raucous First 'Office Christmas Party' Trailer

27 July 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

So far, it's been a good year for Jason Bateman. He voiced a sly and charming fox in the animated smash Zootopia, which has earned more than one billion dollars at the box office worldwide. He portrayed a nasty former classmate of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart in the action comedy Central Intelligence, a more modest yet still quite successful release this summer. As those two roles suggest, Bateman has a wide range as an actor. He can play an affable good guy, as he did on TV's Arrested Development for several seasons, or a multilayered character with an edge, as he showed in Joel Edgerton's terrific suspense drama The Gift last year. What sort of character will Bateman be playing in Office Christmas Party? The first teaser trailer for the holiday comedy has now...

‘Arrested Development’ Season 5 Could Start Shooting in Early 2017

27 July 2016 10:56 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mitch Hurwitz can’t escape questions about “Arrested Development.”

In a panel Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour for Netflix comedies “Bojack Horseman,” “F is for Family” and “Lady Dynamite,” the first question was directed at Hurwitz, asking the “Arrested” creator — and “Lady Dynamite” co-creator — for a status update on the fifth season of his Emmy-winning ensemble comedy.

“If it does happen, it looks like the shooting will start at the beginning of 2017.”

Though there are still details to be worked out, Hurwitz and writers for the show have been at work on a new season.

“It’s the thing I’m really desperate to do,” Hurwitz said. “We’ve got a lot of the stories broke and we’re ready to go.”

Hurwitz also announced that Lady Dynamite, the Netflix original comedy he co-created with Pam Brady and starring comedian Maria Bamford, has been renewed for a second season.

Coming Distractions: T.J. Miller is full of holiday spirits in the Office Christmas Party trailer

26 July 2016 1:25 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Never mind the fact that the air you’re breathing is mostly steam and the sidewalk outside your door is melting into a ribbon of dingy goo. It’s time to start thinking about Christmas—or about getting hammered and busting the joint up. Either way, the trailer for Office Christmas Party has you covered. T.J. Miller plays a corporate branch manager who enlists the help of his chief technical officer (Jason Bateman) to help him throw an off-the-hook holiday blowout in the hopes of impressing an important client and keeping his joyless CEO sister (Jennifer Aniston) from closing their dysfunctional office. That’s the plot, but the movie is really about giving a cast full of talented comedians like Kate McKinnon, Rob Cordry, Matt Walsh, Vanessa Bayer, and Jillian Bell the chance to stage flaming Christmas tree duels, sled down staircases, and completely destroy the entire floor of ...
