That Time When Randy “Macho Man” Savage was On Arsenio Hall

22 March 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

As you guys know by now, I’m very fond of the old days of the WWE back when it was called the WWF.  Wrestling today is just as entertaining as it’s ever been (if not even more so) but wrestling quality is also a function of your age.  When you’re 10 years old everything seems more real so 20-30 years later you end up adopting the whole, “back in my day wrestling was so much better” attitude.  While I do have a considerable amount of nostalgia for my favorite wrestlers of my day, I do acknowledge just how popular it

Is Eddie Murphy writing a sequel to Coming To America

18 March 2017 2:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Coming To America 2 on the way from Eddie Murphy?

Take this one with a huge pinch of salt as details are a little vague, but it looks like Eddie Murphy may be writing a sequel to one of his greatest 1980s movies Coming To America. Yes, we may be in for a Coming To America 2 in the near future!

Is a Coming To America 2 on the way?

The news all stems from a tweet sent from an apparent, verified Twitter account for Murphy with the words ‘Coming To America sequel’, and an image of the character Princess Imani from the original 1988 movie. Both the account and the tweet no longer exist, but this has sent the internet into a bit of a feeding frenzy which may have a bit of truth to the rumours.

According to sources at TMZ, the comedy legend is apparently in the early stages of writing »

Coming to America 2 Is Happening, Eddie Murphy Will Write the Script

17 March 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans who followed comedy superstar Eddie Murphy on Twitter were treated to quite the surprise on Wednesday night, when the actor's verified Twitter account posted the cryptic tweet "Coming to America sequel?" along with a photo of Vanessa Bell Calloway's character, Princess Imani. Not only was the tweet later deleted, but the actor's entire Twitter account was deactivated, sparking speculation that the actor may have been hacked. A new report reveals that Eddie Murphy didn't authorize that tweet, but he is actually working on the script for Coming to America 2.

TMZ reports that there are actually plans in place to make this sequel, and that there were plans to post something similar to that tweet, but it wasn't supposed to happen yet. The actor himself doesn't actually tweet, since he has a social media team to do that for him, and the deleted Coming to America 2 tweet wasn't authorized by him, »

Full trailer for Adam Sandler’s new Netflix movie ‘Sandy Wexler’

16 February 2017 9:34 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Sandy Wexler is the latest Netflix original film from actor Adam Sandler and tells the story of the titular character: a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s who diligently represents a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single-minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson), a tremendously talented singer who he discovers at an amusement park.

The ‘90s was the decade of Bill Clinton, the Macarena, dial-up internet… and Sandy Wexler. One thing is for sure – Hollywood wasn’t ready for a talent manager like him.

Also starring Kevin James (True Memoirs of An International Assassin), Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Lamorne Morris (New Girl), Nick Swardson (The Do-Over), Rob Schneider, Jane Seymour, Carl Weathers and Arsenio Hall; Sandy Wexler is directed by Steve Brill (The Do-Over) from a script by Sandler himself. »

Adam Sandler as a Talent Manager in Teaser Trailer for 'Sandy Wexler'

20 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Netflix has released a very short teaser trailer for a new comedy from Adam Sandler called Sandy Wexler, made by the director of Little Nicky. Adam Sandler plays a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s, representing a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. He ends up falling in love with a new client, a singer, who he discovers an amusement park. Jennifer Hudson plays the singer, and the cast includes Kevin James, Terry Crews, Lamorne Morris, Nick Swardson, Rob Schneider, Jane Seymour, Carl Weathers & Arsenio Hall. This is a very short teaser, and it's probably more than enough, because Sandler's Netflix comedies are really terribel and should be avoided. This seems the same. Here's the first teaser trailer for Steven Brill's Sandy Wexler, direct from Netflix's YouTube: The film follows Sandy Wexler (Adam Sandler), a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s, »

Here’s the trailer for Adam Sandler’s new Netflix movie

Sandy Wexler is the latest Netflix project from Adam Sandler. Here's the trailer...

By our maths, Adam Sandler now has one more film to go until he’s completed his deal with Netflix for four feature films. So far, we’ve had The Ridiculous Six (not very good) and The Do-Over (not very good). And for his third movie, Sandler has put together Sandy Wexler.

He’s not made this one alone. He’s reunited with The Do-Over director Steven Brill for a start, and he’s co-written the screenplay with Paul Sado and Dan Bulla. In terms of casting,, you’ll find Jennifer Hudson, Rob Schneider, Kevin James, Arsenio Hall Terry Crews and Lamorne Morris picking up paycheques on this one.

The film will land on Netflix in April, and we’ve got a trailer and a synopsis. »

Sandy Wexler Trailer Takes Adam Sandler Back to the 90s

19 January 2017 11:18 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Adam Sandler is back yet again with another Netflix original movie. Sandy Wexler is the third of four comedies that were part of his exclusive contact with the streaming service. And this might be the best one yet. Which, I'm sure, some of you will joke that it shouldn't be too hard to top The Ridiculous 6 or The Do-Over, but those have been some of Netflix's biggest original movies to date. Today, we get the first trailer for Sandy Wexler, and it's pure Sandler gold!

Sandy Wexler will do for the 90s what The Wedding Singer did for the 80s, bringing a shot of nostalgia straight to the veins of the Millennial generation. Though, Sandler let this one simmer a little bit longer. The Wedding Singer arrived in 1998, not even a decade after the 80s had passed, and not everyone was as nostalgic for the era as some teens »
