New poster and sneak peek for Absolutely Anything

19 June 2015 6:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its release this summer, a new poster and teaser video have arrived online for director Terry Jones’ upcoming romantic comedy Absolutely Anything starring Simon Pegg, Kate Beckinsale and the late Robin Williams; check them out below…

Neil Clarke, a schoolteacher, suddenly discovers he has magical powers. In fact, with the wave of his hand, he can make absolutely anything happen. From wiping out a particularly disruptive class (and then bringing them – and anyone else who has ever died! – back to life), to turning his best mate into the kind of man women would not only die for, but would worship to the ends of the earth and back. The only snag is getting the words right and of course, knowing what he really wants. Mishap after mishap finally leads him to the ultimate conundrum that all men dread and at which many have failed; should he choose the girl or the dog… »

Watch the trailer for Boulevard, Robin Williams's final film

When Robin Williams died last August, a few of his film projects were still to be released. The final two are Absolutely Anything, the Terry Jones comedy in which he voices Simon Pegg’s dog, Dennis, and a rather subtler proposition: a drama called Boulevard, which premiered to warm reviews at Tribeca in April.

First trailer for Boulevard starring the late Robin Williams

18 June 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer for drama Boulevard – starring the late Robin Williams in his final live-action performance – has appeared online today, and you can view it below…

It is coming up on a year since Williams passed away in August 2014, and Boulevard marks the final time we will see the gifted actor and comedian on the big screen (his final role, in Terry Jones’ upcoming Absolutely Anything, only features voice work by the actor).

In Boulevard, Williams displays his knack for dramatic acting once again as a bank manager who is in some denial about his sexuality, despite being married. He soon falls into a relationship with a young hustler and his life begins to change.

Directed by Dito Montiel (The Guide To Recognizing Your Saints), Boulevard co-stars Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), Kathy Baker (Saving Mr. Banks) and Giles Matthey (24: Live Another Day) and opens in limited Us cinemas on July 10th. »

John Cleese webchat – as it happened: 'Piers Morgan? Big M, small organ'

10 June 2015 6:29 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Is it possible to train your cat to be vegan? Would he ever present Top Gear? And what’s his beef with Piers Morgan. The Monty Python and Fawlty Towers star answered your questions live - read his answers here.

3.45pm BST

That’s it! Thanks for all your questions. A final word from John:

This has been great fun, thanks for entertaining questions. Signed, A Non-Venemous Python.

David Gersch asks:

After reading your autobiography, I’m troubled on the conclusion of what type of Cheese you are, initially I thought of you as a Brie, sophisticated and elegant, then I noticed you more of a Goat Cheese, wanting to please everyone and losing yourself in doing so, but as you’ve matured I sense a Blue Cheese quality, an acquired taste. Mr Cleese what Cheese are you? in addition what are the other Pythons cheese types?

The top 20 underappreciated films of 1987

13 May 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From anime to pitch-black thrillers, here's our pick of the underappreciated movies of 1987...

Sometimes, the challenge with these lists isn't just what to put in, but what to leave out. We loved Princess Bride, but with a decent showing at the box office and a huge cult following, isn't it a bit too popular to be described as underappreciated? Likewise Joe Dante's Innerspace, a fabulously geeky, comic reworking of the 60s sci-fi flick, Fantastic Voyage.

What we've gone for instead is a mix of genre fare, dramas and animated films that may have garnered a cult following since, but didn't do well either critically or financially at the time of release. Some of the movies on our list just about made their money back, but none made anything close to the sort of returns enjoyed by the likes of 1987's biggest films - Three Men And A Baby, Fatal Attraction »

Whatever movies you have on your lists to see in 2015 – Jurassic World, Ted 2, Mad Max: Fury Road, Star Wars: The Force Awakens – take some time to add another as this new comedy from Monty Python legend Terry Jones looks absolutely hilarious.

Simon Pegg stars in Absolutely Anything, a comedy about a normal man who is given the powers to do ‘absolutely anything.’ Featuring a brilliant cast in the form of Sanjeev Bhaskar, Kate Beckinsale, Joanna Lumley, Eddie Izzard, Rob Riggle, the entire Monty Python team and the late, great Robin Williams, the movie opens in cinemas in August, and we have the brilliant first trailer for you below.

Absolutely Anything follows a disillusioned school teacher (Pegg) who suddenly finds he has the ability to do anything he wishes, a challenge bestowed upon him by a group of power-crazed aliens (voiced by Cleese, Gilliam, Jones, Palin & Idle), watching him from space. »

'Absolutely Anything' Trailer Starring Robin Williams and Simon Pegg

An unassuming teacher is bestowed with an incredible gift by a group of aliens in the U.K trailer for Absolutely Anything.

The other project, Boulevard, will be released in theaters July 17 through Starz Digital Media.

Monty Python messes with Simon Pegg in the trailer for Absolutely Anything

4 May 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

When you think of Monty Python, odds are you immediately think of quotes from any of their films or the iconic sketches from their television series. They are one of the most influential comedy troupes of all time and we only have four films to their credit. While Absolutely Anything may not be a formal Monty Python project, it was written and directed by Terry Jones and features the voice talents of all the surviving Pythons: Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, John Cleese, and Michael Palin.

Simon Pegg Has Absolute Power In Trailer For Absolutely Anything

3 May 2015 5:49 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Considering his previous credits include Monty Python's Life of Brian and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, it's no surprise that Terry Jones' latest effort, Absolutely Anything, promises to be a supremely silly of very British comedy. The first trailer sets up the premise perfectly, with a group of aliens (voiced by Jones and the rest of Monty Python) testing the capacity for good and evil in humanity by granting the power to do absolutely anything to a cynical teacher Neil (Simon Pegg). Of course, Neil wields this power in selfish ways, including giving himself the perfect body, immense success, and granting his the power of speech to his dog (voiced by Robin Williams in one of his final roles). The main meat of the story is thankfully kept under warps, and hopefully it remains there until the movie hits in a few months time, because this promises to »

Absolutely Anything Trailer Gives Simon Pegg the Power

3 May 2015 1:33 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lionsgate UK has released the first official trailer for Terry Jones' (Life of Brian, Monty Python and the Holy Grail) new sci-fi comedy Almost Anything. The film stars Simon Pegg as Neil Clarke, a cynical school teacher who is granted the power to do anything as a part of an alien examination to judge the good and evil in humanity. Clarke uses his abilities in a number of silly and selfish ways including spying on his attractive neighbor (Kate Beckinsale), giving himself ripped abs, and granting his dog the power of speech, voiced by Robin Williams in one of his final roles. Absolutely Anything reunites Jones with his Monty Python colleagues John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle and Michael Palin for the first time since 1983's The Meaning of Life. The comedic legends lend their voices to the power-hungry aliens who judge Pegg's character from space, determined to end »

Celebrating 40 Years of Monty Python and the Holy Grail

26 April 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

40 years ago, the British comedy sextet Monty Python released the hilarous Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Decades later, the film is still considered a comedy classic. Cinelinx looks back at the making of one of the great film parodies. It’s being released in certain theaters for special showings this week.

They were something completely different. When Monty Python’s Flying Circus debuted on BBC TV in 1969, they were unlike anything ever seen before and they became the comedy darlings of Britain. But it wasn’t until 1975—and the release of their second film Monty Python and the Holy Grail—that they made it big in America and became an international sensation.

 By 1975, the Monty Python comedy troupe—comprised of John Cleese, Terry Jones, Graham Chapman, Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam—had already finished their legendary run on the TV show Monty Python’s Flying Circus and »
