Jack Black's D-Train Trailer Rides Online

14 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The presence of Jack Black and the prominence of the letter D might, at a casual glance, lead to you to expect a reteaming with Kyle Gass and a follow-up to The Pick Of Destiny. The D-Train is about a reunion of the school variety, however, with Black tenaciously trying to secure James Marsden's involvement. Here's the new trailer for the feel-bad comedy.Yes Man writers Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel have stepped up to direct this one, which finds Black chairing the committee of a middle American high school's reunion. Desperate for the acceptance and acclaim he never got in his yoot, our hero sees his chance to shine by convincing the guy voted most popular (Marsden) to attend.Trouble is, the one-time hotshot is now a failed actor primarily working in adverts who has no real desire to parade around his old school. So Black’s »

Take a ride on ‘The D Train’ and watch Sundance trailer starring Jack Black

31 March 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We fell in love with the raunchy R-rated romp The D-Train at this year’s Sundance. Starring Jack Black, James Marsden, Kathryn Hahn, Jeffrey Tambor, and Mike White, the film features Black as the self-appointed head to his high school’s alumni association bent on getting the former most popular kid in school (Marsden) to attend their high school reunion so that the event can be a success.

J.R. Kinnard said this about The D-Train in his Sundance review:

The D Train starts as a predictable buddy-comedy, only to swerve into a completely unexpected direction.  It’s a movie that might have lived comfortably in the ‘80s, alongside other raunchy R-rated comedies that never forgot to bring a little heart.  Jack Black continues to evolve as a comedic actor, learning when to turn on his persona and when to disappear into character.  The writing is sharp, smart, and determined to give us something unpredictable. »

Jack Black Stages A High School Reunion In First Trailer For The D Train

31 March 2015 10:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The last time Jack Black attempted a school union of sorts, it involved banding together a group of talented kids to win the coveted Battle of the Bands for cult comedy School of Rock. On this occasion, his efforts all revolve around luring James Marsden’s popular jock back for a class reunion in Jarrad Paul and Andrew Mogel’s upcoming comedy, The D Train.

For the film, Black will step into the shoes of Dan Landsman, the chairman of his former high school tasked with organizing the aforementioned reunion event. Clutching at straws, our protagonist believes the best way to trumpet excitement for the reunion is to ensure washed-up actor Oliver Lawless (Marsden) makes an appearance, a man he believes to be his “best friend.” Awkwardness and hilarity ensue.

Written and directed by Paul and Mogel, The D Train doesn’t necessarily scream originality, but given the comedy’s ensemble cast, »

'D Train' Trailer Starring Jack Black & James Marsden

In Tenacious D, Jack Black exudes enough confidence for an entire nation. That notion is turned on it's head in The D Train, which finds the often boisterous comedian taking on the more reserved role of a former high school loser who never made it with the ladies. We have the first trailer and poster for this Sundance hit. The comedy also stars James Marsden, Kathryn Hahn and Jeffrey Tambor.

Jack Black Stages a High School Reunion in The D Train Trailer

31 March 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

IFC Films has released The D Train trailer online. The indie dramedy stars Jack Black as a desperate man trying to organize a high school reunion who courts a former classmate (James Marsden) in the hopes that his celebrity may be enough to draw in other alums. For a film that stars Jack Black and James Marsden as well as Kathryn Hahn and Jeffrey Tambor, the premise is remarkably low stakes even though the film presents its premise as outrageous. However, in his review from Sundance, our critic Ruffus said the film’s “dry comedic tone allows for a variety of subject matters from sexuality and success, to the “every man’s” desire to make their dreams come true, and failing on the way.” So perhaps this trailer has really smoothed off the edges to present what could easily be an episode of Modern Family. Check out The D Train trailer and poster below. »

Exclusive: Will Forte Gets Weird In Clip from 'Apartment Troubles'

24 March 2015 12:43 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's always great to see films from female directors, which are too few and far between. "Apartment Troubles" features double the bang for your buck, with Jennifer Prediger ("A Teacher") and Jess Weixler ("Teeth") sharing co-screenwriting and co-directing duties on the quirky road movie. The story follows two roommates after they get evicted from their NYC apartment and head west seeking better fortunes. Megan Mullaly, Jeffrey Tambor, and Will Forte offer supporting turns, which is quite the trio of comedy heavyweights. The film made it's debut at the La Film Fest last year under the title of "Trouble Dolls," and our review noted that "beneath the playful narrative and broad comic strokes, the duo manages to capture something tender about confusion and personal growth seen at different stages in life." In the exclusive clip below, you can see a bit of the dark and offbeat humor, as the plucky protagonists hitch a. »

Jim Parsons has won this four of the last five years, but will love of "Transparent" finally get Jeffrey Tambor an Emmy after multiple losses for both "The Larry Sanders Show" and "Arrested Development"? Both will surely be nominated, though beyond that it's much slimmer pickin's than the comedy actress category (which is kind of a great thing).

2015 Emmy Predictions: Best Comedy Series

10 March 2015 10:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Here's our take on the best comedy series category — or "best half hour show," as the new Emmy rules have distinguished. Said rule change could mean that "Orange Is The New Black" won't be factoring into this category this time around, though Netflix will have an opportunity to petition its "comedic qualities" to the Academy (as will Showtime in regard to "Shameless," another hour-long show that had been competing here). For now, we're counting them both as "dramas," which opens up a slot here, in addition to the seventh nominee that comes from yet another new Emmy rule.

"I'm a woman," Jessica added. "That's the only word to describe the feeling. I feel like a woman. I am a woman. There's no doubt about it."

19 Action Heroes Who Need to Enter the Danger Zone on 'Archer'

19 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Archer" has never been shy on guest stars, including this week's visiting voice from Kumail Nanjiani. From Jeffrey Tambor pairing up with Jessica Walters for an "Arrested Development" reunion in Season 1 to Kenny Loggins checking in last year, "Archer" knows what talent to bring in as well as who to avoid. But other than the major get of grabbing Burt Reynolds to play himself in Season 3 — and the minor acquisition of Christian Slater last year — the FX animated series is light on big name action stars.  Clearly, Archer himself is a movie fan, as his consistent references to obscure cult classics of the '70s and '80s denotes. So we at Indiewire came up with a wishlist we think Codename Duchess would approve of, trying to avoid anyone who doesn't fit the show's mold or who may be a little bit less than "spy" material (sorry fans of Sly and Ahnuld, »

What to Watch: Friday the 13th Pt. 13-Be My Bloody Valentine on Saturday the 14th

13 February 2015 12:50 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

For horror fans who love to celebrate holidays in their own ways, this upcoming weekend couldn’t be any more delightful. We get a Friday the 13th the day before Valentine’s Day on Saturday the 14th. If that doesn’t sound like the perfect excuse for a genre-themed movie marathon, then I don’t know what does.

Okay, so some folks reading this might not have thirty years of horror movie-watching expertise under their belt like I do. Let me give you a rundown or schedule of events for the weekend’s festivities.

Begin Friday night with a mini-marathon of Friday the 13th movies. There are currently twelve to choose from. Most new-school slasher fans will no doubt choose the 2009 remake. If you’re looking to get educated, my personal choices are the original 1980 grassroots version, the grindhouse-influenced Friday the 13th, Part V: A New Beginning, and ridiculous Jason X »
