She’s Funny That Way | Review

Funny Ha-ha: Bogdanovich’s Pleasant Return to the Screwball Comedy

The buzz has been rather hushed concerning She’s Funny That Way, the return of 70s auteur man following a thirteen year feature hiatus (his last was the 2001 film The Cat’s Meow). An ode to the classic screwball comedies of yore, where filmmakers like Lubitsch, Hawks, and several others birthed the prized frameworks, Peter Bogdanovich doesn’t manage to successfully contemporize these antics into the frothy delight of famous predecessors. If you can forgive it these blatant and inescapable anachronistic variations however, it’s an often funny, charming, and ultimately entertaining film.

A filmmaker consistently obsessed with a particular Golden Age of Hollywood’s heyday, his latest is no exception, a long gestating project once imagined as a vehicle for John Ritter. Pleasantly entertaining, it’s not so much that Bogdanovich has lost his touch—in many regards the »

Scooby-Doo Meets Batman and Gandalf in 'Lego Dimensions' Trailer

Last month, Lego unveiled new trailers for the upcoming video game Lego Dimensions, where we saw iconic characters such as Batman and Doctor Who in Lego form. Today, Lego Dimensions has released yet another gameplay trailer, which features beloved characters Shaggy (voiced by Matthew Lillard) and Scooby-Doo (voiced by Frank Welker) as they get tricked into entering the Lego world. There we see them interact with Gandalf (voiced by Tom Kane) from The Lord of the Rings along with The Lego Movie's Batman (voiced by Will Arnett) and Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks).

When a mysterious and powerful vortex suddenly appears in various Lego worlds, different characters from DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings and The Lego Movie are swept away.

'Ninja Turtles 2' BeBop and Rocksteady Spoiler Revealed?

18 August 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in May, we reported that WWE Superstar Sheamus had landed the role of Rocksteady in Paramount's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, after the actor was spotted on the New York City set with Gary Anthony Williams as Bebop. We knew for quite some time that both of these characters were going to be included in the sequel, but very little is known about the roles they play. As it turns out, the studio actually sought out former WWE wrestler C.M. Punk for the Rocksteady role, and in a new interview with Chicago Tribune, C.M. Punk reveals a big Spoiler for the sequel. While this has yet to be confirmed, take a look at what he has to say below.

"I just assumed Sheamus is a bigger dude, so they gave it to the big guy. It makes sense. They were looking for two big, muscly bouncer types. Sheamus fits the role. »

New details about Bebop and Rocksteady in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

18 August 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning – minor spoilers below…

We’ve seen some set photos of Gary Anthony Williams and WWE Superstar Sheamus as Bebop and Rocksteady pre-mutation, and it was always assumed they would end up as the rhino and warthog that we know an love from the cartoon.

Well, looks like that is the case.

Former WWE Superstar and current Ufc trainee was originally in line to play the role of Rocksteady, before the role went to his former colleague Sheamus. “I just assumed Sheamus is a bigger dude, so they gave it to the big guy,” Punk told the Chicago Tribune. “It makes sense. They were looking for two big, muscly bouncer types. Sheamus fits the role. I think they end up getting mutated half way through. You didn’t hear that from me, though.”

So, looks like we will be getting the classic looks for the characters, though this is hardly »

BoJack Horseman Season 2 Episode 9 Review – ‘The Shot’

16 August 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jackson Ball reviews the ninth episode of Netflix’s BoJack Horseman season 2…

After the high-paced nature of the previous episode, ‘The Shot’ takes the opportunity to slow things down again so everyone can recuperate themselves. The episode also acts as yet another reminder that BoJack Horseman is not only fantastic comedy show, but also a deeply affecting drama.

Spoiler Ahead – You Have Been Warned!

Episode 9 finds BoJack (Will Arnett) facing difficulties in his professional life. Back on the set of ‘Secretariat’, BoJack fears that his chance to deliver a nuanced, artistic performance is about to be taken away from him by interfering producers. Clearly satirizing the current ‘committee-over-auteur’ attitude in Hollywood, the episode features the Lennie Turtletaub (J.K. Simmons) stripping the film of its more controversial scenes to appease ‘test audiences’.

Desperate to save the film, BoJack hatches an unbelievably elaborate scheme to shoot one of the removed scenes in private, »

BoJack Horseman Season 2 Episode 8 Review – ‘Let’s Find Out’

13 August 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jackson Ball reviews the eighth episode of Netflix’s BoJack Horseman season 2…

Season 2 has now hit top speed, and there can now be no doubts that Netflix has in fact churned out one of the most relevant animated sitcoms in recent memory. In this episode, season 2 reaches in new heights both in terms of tear-inducing hilarity, and thought-provoking humanity.

Spoiler Ahead – You Have Been Warned!

For most of this season, BoJack (Will Arnett) and Mr. Peanutbutter (Paul F. Tompkins) have been on mostly unrelated story-threads, running parallel to each other. In ‘Let’s Find Out’ though, those plot-threads coming crashing together in an explosive fashion, in what is one of the most gripping episodes to date.

As you’ll remember from precious episodes, Mr. Peanutbutter has been hand-picked by BoJack’s girlfriend Wanda (Lisa Kudrow) to present her network’s new gameshow; the brilliantly titled ‘Jd Salinger presents Hollywoo Celebrities, »

Zach Galifianakis Will Take on The Joker as 'Lego Batman' Finds Its Villain

13 August 2015 7:40 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

We already knew Will Arnett and Michael Cera would be joining forces to take down baddies as the voices of Batman and Robin, respectively, in The Lego Batman Movie, but we didn't know who the blocky yellow pair would be trying to take down -- until now. According to The Hollywood Reporter Zach Galifianakis is in talks to voice The Joker in Warner Bros.' forthcoming spinoff, which means my idea of turning the movie into an "Arrested Development" reunion and having David Cross or Tony Hale voice The Joker is all but dead, but it's okay, life goes on. I've grown a bit sour on Galifianakis in recent years, given the mostly one-note comedic range he has displayed since breaking out in 2009's The Hangover, but I liked him quite a bit in Birdman and I'm hopeful he can turn this role into something fun. The good news is »

Zach Galifianakis Is The Joker In The Lego Batman Movie

13 August 2015 3:05 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

tumblr

We’ve known for some months that a Lego Movie spin-off entitled The Lego Batman Movie (alongside a more traditional sequel) is in the pipeline at Warner Bros. This morning the project took a leap forward, and increased its odds of matching The Lego Movie’s own weird and wonderful reputation with the news that Zach Galifianakis will voice Joker, the film’s chief antagonist.

Galifianakis rounds out a cast of legitimately distinct and tantalizingly off-beat talents with Will Arnett reprising his role as the titular (and musically gifted) caped-crusader and Michael Cera on-board as Robin.

I imagine Galifianakis won’t be dialing down Joker’s trademark theatricality, which should bounce off Arnett’s extreme self-seriousness really, really well. Neither comic would be traditionally described as family friendly (can’t see Joker accidentally slipping Batman rohypnol) but both have been wholeheartedly committed to warped humour for the majority »

Lego Batman movie: Zach Galifianakis to voice The Joker

12 August 2015 10:12 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Will Arnett's Batman will do battle with Zach Galifianakis' Joker in the upcoming Lego Batman film...

Work continues on building the Lego movie universe, and some fresh casting has been announced for The Lego Batman Movie.

We already know that Will Arnett will be reprising his voice work for Batman himself (he remains one of the absolute highlights of The Lego Movie), whilst Michael Cera has signed up to lend his tones to Robin.

Now we learn that Zach Galifianakis is in talks to bring his take on The Joker's voice to the screen. No more details than that have been revealed, but then to be fair, that pretty much explains the latest casting anyway.

Seth Grahame-Smith has penned the script for The Lego Batman Movie, and Chris McKay - animation supervisor on The Lego Movie - is directing this one. More on the film as we hear it. »

'The Lego Batman Movie' Finds Its Joker in 'The Hangover'

12 August 2015 7:15 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The Lego Movie surprised many when it turned out to not only be a brilliant story that championed creativity and individuality, but also a huge hit, grossing over $250 million in the U.S. alone. Naturally it's then no surprise that Warner Bros. plans to chase that popularity with sequels and spin-offs. The first up of this bunch is The Lego Batman Movie, which will see Will Arnett once again voicing the hero who stole several scenes in The Lego Movie. Now, thanks to THR, we know that the minds behind the new movie have found who will play Batman's nemesis, the Joker. They're in final negotiations for The Hangover scene stealer Zach Galifianakis to take on the laugh-filled role. If the ink dries on the paperwork, that'd make Galifianakis the third official voice...

The joke's on you, Jared Leto! Zach Galifianakis could be taking on the role of The Joker in The Lego Movie's Batman spinoff.

We already know that The Lego Batman Movie will bow in 2017 with Will Arnett and Michael Cera as the Dynamic Duo of Batman and Robin.

Lego Batman Movie takes in "every era" of the superhero, say directors

The Hollywood Reporter is now saying that Birdman actor Galifianakis is in final talks to portray the Clown Prince of Crime in the upcoming movie.

If Galifianakis is cast, there will be two actors simultaneously playing The Joker in Warner Bros film franchises.

Jared Leto is set to become the live-action Joker in the 2016 super-villain team-up movie Suicide Squad - although that film is not being marketed to children.

The Lego Batman Movie is scheduled to open on February 10, 2017 in Us and UK cinemas. »

Zach Galifianakis Is the Joker in 'Lego Batman Movie'

12 August 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one month after Michael Cera signed on to provide the voice for Batman's sidekick Robin, The Lego Batman Movie has found its main villain. Variety reports that Zach Galifianakis is in talks to voice The Joker in this animated adventure. Will Arnett reprises his role from last year's blockbuster The Lego Movie as The Dark Knight.

No specific plot details have been released yet, but producer Chris Miller said in November that this animated superhero movie will span every era of Batman filmmaking. With that being said, it's certainly possible that practically every Batman villain could be featured in this animated spinoff. It isn't known what other classic Batman characters are being eyed for The Lego Batman Movie, but there certainly are plenty to choose from.

Lego Batman Movie Casts 'The Joker' And It's Definitely Not Who You're Expecting

12 August 2015 1:53 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Zach Galifianakis is in final talks to bring a brick version of the Clown Prince of Crime to life in Warner Bros.' Lego Batman movie. With Will Arnett reprising the role of the Caped Crusader from The Lego Movie, it's clear that they're going for comedic actors when it comes to building this world as Michael Cera was recently chosen by WB to play Robin. Galifianakis is an interesting choice for The Joker though, but as he's no stranger to playing somewhat unhinged characters, he should fit right in here. The movie is being produced by Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, while Chris McKay is directing from a script by Seth Grahame-Smith.
