E! Cancels 'The Soup' After 22 Years

18 November 2015 1:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The end of an era is upon us. Shortly after shuttering its Master Control operations department in Los Angeles, E! has now canceled their longest running program. The Soup, a comedy series that skewers pop culture, is going to air its series finale on December 18th. This will bring the show to a close after spending 22 years on the air.

Current host Joel McHale will help celebrate the legacy he is leaving behind when the finale episode airs the same day that Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives in theaters. The long-standing cable staple was first launched on E! in 1991, but it was originally called Talk Soup. This early iteration of the program focused solely on clips from the various talk shows airing at that time. When it was revamped as The Soup in 2004, the show expanded its reach to all pop culture programing and also focused on viral »

8 Actors Who Unexpectedly And Brilliantly Played Against Type

13 November 2015 3:12 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox Searchlight Pictures

Most actors are prone to being typecast – whether it’s a tone of voice, a particular look or a knack for a certain genre, the movie industry will swiftly size them up and then throw into a little box. Perhaps one marked ‘plummy villain’ if they happen to be an English man, or ‘scream queen’ if they’re a well-endowed lady with a helluva set of lungs.

In some ways, this can be great; a lot of actors seem to just be having a bloody good time re-treading the same ground. Not to mention becoming the poster child for a certain kind of character will often mean you’re a shoe-in for any role that fits that particular mould and regular work is a brilliant thing. One finds it hard to imagine Danny Trejo complaining about being cast in the same role, ad infinitum. After all, playing »

Adam Sandler’s The Ridiculous 6 Gets A Trailer

27 October 2015 4:35 PM, PDT | | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The first in a four picture deal between Adam Sandler and Netflix, you have probably heard about The Ridiculous 6 because of the fierce controversy surrounding it and the fact that a number of Native American performers walking off set due to racially sensitive material. Despite that bit of bad press, the first trailer for the comedy western about a gang of outlaw half-brothers is here,’s an Adam Sandler movie, we know what to expect by now. While it elicited nary a chuckle from me, I have to hand it to Sandler and and his go to director Frank Coraci (Click, The Waterboy, The Wedding Singer) for assembling a pretty decent cast. Sure, the Sandler regulars are there (Terry Crews, Rob Schneider, Jon Lovitz, Steve Buscemi etc.), but it also has Harvey Kietel, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Nick Nolte, Luke Wilson, and John Tuturro in the mix too. »

Adam Sandler and Netflix’s film ‘The Ridiculous 6’ gets a trailer

27 October 2015 12:25 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Netflix sure knows how to pick them…maybe? With Beasts of No Nation premiering two weeks ago in theaters and on the streaming site to substantial praise, the world most likely forgot that Netflix’s next film that they produced and will distribute is anything but their first project. Well, it’s time to be reminded. The first trailer for the Adam Sandler comedy The Ridiculous 6 dropped today, and it may serve as a huge disappointment to viewers who expected Netflix’s next film to not be this most likely offensive comedy western. Here’s the synopsis:

An outlaw who was raised by Native Americans discovers that he has five half-brothers; together the men go on a mission to find their wayward, deadbeat dad.

The cast is as absurd as the content the trailer provides, with Rob Schneider, Terry Crews, Luke Wilson, Taylor Lautner, and Jorge Garcia playing Sandler »

Watch: First Trailer for Adam Sandler’s ‘Ridiculous 6’ Lives Up to Title

27 October 2015 11:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix has released the first trailer for Adam Sandler’s spoof “The Ridiculous 6” less than two months before its Dec. 11 debut on the streaming service.

The trailer features plenty of Sandler’s trademark slapstick comedy mixed with gunplay and a basic outline of the plot: “Six strangers will learn they share one ridiculous secret” — which means that they all share the same father.

The title is a spoof of “The Magnificent Seven.” The most impressive aspect of the trailer is a listing of the massive cast by their last names: Harvey Keitel, John Turturro, Nick Nolte, Blake Shelton, Whitney Cummings, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Dan Aykroyd, Will Forte, Nick Swardson, Terry Crews, Jon Lovitz, Vanilla Ice, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Chris Parnell and Lavell Crawford.

“Ridiculous 6” received plenty of publicity in April when a dozen Native American actors complained about its racist jokes, but Sandler has insisted »

Adam Sandler in First Trailer for Netflix's Comedy 'The Ridiculous Six'

27 October 2015 11:33 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"Who are you people?!" "We are the Stockburn Brothers!" Netflix has debuted the first trailer for the new comedy from Frank Coraci and Adam Sandler titled The Ridiculous Six. It's a western starring Adam Sandler as Tommy "White Knife" Stockburn who goes on a wild west adventure with his five brothers. The impressive comedic cast includes Steve Buscemi, Taylor Lautner, Terry Crews, Norm MacDonald, Danny Trejo, Will Forte, Nick Nolte, Rob Schneider, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn and David Spade. If the cheesy lines don't sell you, maybe that cast will. This really does not look good at all, but maybe that's just my sense of humor, or... it's way too overdone. Not a moment of this made me laugh. It just looks ridiculous. Have fun!

The Trailer For Adam Sandler's Netflix Movie Has to Be Seen to Be Believed

27 October 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Adam Sandler is bringing his crew to Netflix, and our first look at his movie leaves a lot to be desired. Sandler is starring in The Ridiculous 6, a Western comedy, alongside Taylor Lautner, Steve Buscemi, Terry Crews, Norm Macdonald, Danny Trejo, Will Forte, Rob Schneider, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, David Spade, Chris Parnell, John Turturro, and Whitney Cummings as the token funny woman. If the title sounds familiar, it might be because of all the hot water Sandler got in when a bunch of the Native American actors walked off the set in April after feeling disrespected. Not great. We'll see exactly how bad (or maybe good) the movie is when it premieres on Netflix on Dec. 11. »

Watch Goofy Trailer for Adam Sandler's Western 'Ridiculous 6'

27 October 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

To the chagrin of his detractors, Adam Sandler has become a true icon of contemporary American cinema, the comedian a multiplex fixture on par with Tom Cruise, bags of popcorn and infinitely larger bags of popcorn for just 50 cents more. So, even if Sandler may not be the most critically lauded superstar in Hollywood, it was still a game-changer when he announced that four of his upcoming films would be exclusively released on Netflix ("'Netflix' rhymes with 'wet chicks,'" he explained).

Netflix's 'Ridiculous 6' Trailer Has Adam Sandler in the Old West

27 October 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Adam Sandler is galloping to Netflix this December in the original comedy movie The Ridiculous 6. The first trailer and poster have arrived, and it actually looks, dare we say, funny? The popular comedian is joined by a cavalcade of stars for this bizarre Western that is certainly unlike anything you've ever seen before. Unless you've seen some of Adam Sandler's more off-the-wall movies like Little Nicky and You Don't Mess with the Zohan.

The Ridiculous 6 is the first of four Adam Sandler movies produced exclusively for Netflix. The jaw-dropping cast includes Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 co-star Taylor Lautner. The former Twilight heartthrob makes up one of the 6, and is joined by Terry Crews, Jorge Garcia, Rob Schneider and Luke Wilson.

But they're not the only comedy luminaries making an appearance in this throw back to such 70s classics as Blazing Saddles and The Frisco Kid. »

Netflix and Adam Sandler's comedy western The Ridiculous Six gets a trailer and a poster

27 October 2015 10:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Adam Sandler's comedy western movie The Ridiculous Six has an actual trailer. Because it actually exists, actually.

Starring Adam Sandler, Will Forte, Taylor Lautner, Steve Buscemi, Danny Trejo, Terry Crews, Luke Wilson, Nick Nolte, Rob Schneider and Harvey Keitel, this film is Incredible. Incredible.

Whether you find it funny or not is up to you, but it definitely feels like Seth McFarlane's A Million Ways To Die In The West, which is not a good sign.

The film originally attracted criticism after some of its Native American cast complained about working on set. Sandler has since called it a "misunderstanding".

Whether it is a better film than Quentin Tarantino's similar-sounding - but entirely serious - The Hateful Eight (out December 25) remains to be seen, but our money's on Qt.

After all, Ridiclous Six features cameos from Vanilla Ice and Jon Lovitz, which immediately loses it a star or two. »
