Duncan’s (Ken Marino) life is a real pain in the ass. Tormented by a crooked boss (Patrick Warburton) and his family, his mounting stress starts to trigger a gastrointestinal reaction. Out of ideas, Duncan seeks the help of a hypnotherapist (Peter Stormare), who helps him discover the root of his unusual stomach pain: a pint-sized demon living in his intestine that, triggered by excessive anxiety, forces its way out and slaughters the people who have angered him. Out of fear that it may target its wrath on the wrong person, Duncan befriends it, naming it Milo and indulging it to keep its appetite at bay.

Mall, the feature directorial debut from Joe Hahn of Linkin Park, examines a group of disgruntled suburbanites – a man on a personal war campaign, a teenager whose favorite pastime is smoking pot, a housewife whose best days have been left behind, a greedy businessman whose only desire is to increase his wealth, and a depressed pervert – who find themselves at a shopping mall in the midst of a seemingly random shooting. From a script co-written and produced by Vincent D’Onofrio (who acts in it, as well), the film also stars Cameron Monaghan, Gina Gershon, Peter Stormare, James Frecheville, Gbenga Akinnagbe and India Menuez. During this exclusive interview with Collider, Joe Hahn talked about why he wanted to take on Mall as his first feature, staying artistically creative when you’re also handling the business side of things, how he found the casting process, his background directing music videos for the band, »

Meet the young Penguins of Madagascar in a special 4-Minute sneak preview of the new 20th Century Fox and DreamWorks Animation spin-off, coming to theaters this November.
This latest look at the animated adventure shows us Skipper (Tom McGrath), Rico (John Di Maggio) and Kowalski (Jeff Bennett) on their first mission as they attempt to save an egg from being eaten by seals. Their impressive skills in retrieving the egg convince them that maybe they should defy mother nature and head off on their own. Of course, their celebration is short lived after the egg reveals itself to contain a whole new world of problems.
Penguins of Madagascar will expose the secrets of the most entertaining and mysterious birds in the global espionage game: Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private.

So far what we’ve seen from Madagascar spin-off Penguins Of Madagascar has focused on their present, as a well-drilled but shambolic military force that somehow manages to succeed despite half-arsed plans. A new clip from the film explores the birth of the team (and in the case of Private, his literal, gooey birth)…After proving their popularity in the Madagascar trilogy and testing their mettle with a TV series, the flightless feathered friends are now taking on the task of anchoring their own film that finds Skipper (Tom McGrath), Kowalski (Chris Miller), Rico and Private (Christopher Knights) joining forces with a super-secret animal organization called North Wind to fight the many-tentacled Octopus menace known as Dave (John Malkovich). North Wind's leader, meanwhile, is a wolf known only as Classified, voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch. Oh, and there’s a new penguin in the mix, Corporal, bearing Peter Stomare’s distinctive tones. »

Featuring the voices of Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, Christopher Knights, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, Peter Stormare and John Malkovich, here’s your first look at the brand new and funny trailer for 20th Century Fox’s and DreamWorks Animation’s The Penguins Of Madagascar.
Super spy teams aren’t born…they’re hatched. Discover the secrets of the greatest and most hilarious covert birds in the global espionage biz: Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private.
These elitists of the elite are joining forces with a chic undercover organization, The North Wind.
Here’s a rundown of the team:
Agent Classified (Voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch)
First of all, his name is actually classified, and not “Classified.” The leader of the North Wind — a spy agency that helps animals in need – he’s a highly-trained but cocky secret agent who underestimates the Penguins’ operation.

In a season that will be introducing Batman villain Ra’s al Ghul, Arrow’s premiere included a scene somewhat familiar to fans of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. Facing the new Count Vertigo (Peter Stormare), Oliver (Stephen Amell) gets an unwanted taste of a new version of the drug, which brings out victims' worst fears—pretty much exactly what Ra’s al Ghul’s (Liam Neeson) hallucinogen did in Batman Begins. "Total coincidence," executive producer Marc Guggenheim explains. "Its presence in was really designed to that Oliver is struggling with the theme of identity." After Oliver is dosed, »

A review of last night's "Arrow" season premiere coming up just as soon as all my data is replaced by audio files of porcupine flatulence... "Arrow" is a show I enjoy a lot, and consider easily the best of the current wave of superhero shows. But it has certain tendencies that it has to keep carefully in check, chief among them its love of melodramatic angst for Oliver and its need to restate the themes of a given episode or season as many times as possible. These are both fundamental parts of the show, but also parts the show sometimes leans on too much. For a while, I feared "The Calm" was going to be one of those episodes where my eyes rolled at least as often as my fists pumped. A lot of that eye rolling was specifically regarding Oliver and Felicity. It's not that my enjoyment of the »

Welcome back to Starling City! The season premiere kicks off into high gear with Oliver’s team in full synchronicity and Roy in full red mask and outfit (how come Diggle doesn’t get a mask?). They bust some bad guys, complete with needless flips in the air and arrow tricks. We catch a news report citing the Arrow as a hero, not a vigilante and Detective Lance, now Captain Lance, calls off the Anti-Task Force that has plagued Oliver since season 1. And we cut to credits to begin Season 3.
Throughout this episode the theme of this season is defined clearly to the viewer, but is still just as muddled in Oliver’s head. Can he be both Oliver Queen and the Arrow? If not, why? With Sara gone back to the League in Nanda Parbot, and »

Oliver Searches For An Identity Beyond The Arrow — With crime in Starling City at an all-time low thanks to the Arrow (Stephen Amell) and his team, Oliver thinks he can finally balance being both the Arrow and Oliver Queen and asks Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) out on a date. However, when a new villain (guest star Peter Stormare) emerges, who has claimed the name Vertigo from the recently deceased Count, Oliver is caught off-guard and someone close to him is hurt. Oliver and a newly suited up Roy (Colton Haynes) take on the Count. Meanwhile, Diggle (David Ramsey) becomes a father, Lance (Paul Blackthorne) is promoted to Captain, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) joins Arrow’s inner circle and Felicity gets a part-time job at a tech store to make ends meet. Also, Oliver fights to regain his company, Queen Consolidated, but comes up against a very worthy opponent – the charming Ray »
While DreamWorks Animation has a kind of “throw everything against the wall and see what sticks” attitude when it comes to their films, every once in a while they put together something special. I wasn’t necessarily looking forward to the spinoff feature The Penguins of Madagascar, but ever since that first trailer I’ve found myself wanting to see more comedic adventures from the titular penguins. A new Penguins of Madagascar clip has now landed online, and it once again highlights the humorous interplay amongst the penguins and their love of Cheezy Dibbles as they find themselves squaring off against a vending machine. It’s funny stuff, and I’m genuinely eager to catch the film in theaters next month. Hit the jump to watch the new Penguins of Madagascar clip, and if you missed Evan’s recap from watching some extended footage from the film, click here. The »
