New TV spots for The Lego Batman Movie focus on Batgirl and the team

2 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With less than a month to go before we head back to Gotham City – in brick form, this time – two new TV spots have arrived online for The Lego Batman Movie focussing on Barbara Gordon/Batgirl and ‘The Team’; check them out below after the official synopsis…

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The Lego® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – Lego Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

The Lego Batman Movie is set for release on February 10th 2017 and sees Will Arnett joined in the voice cast by Michael Cera (Superbad) as Robin, Rosario Dawson (Daredevil) as Batgirl, »

20 Ways Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events Is Different From the Books

14 January 2017 2:05 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Avid readers generally remain steadfast in their belief that the book is always better than the movie or TV show, but this isn't to say that some adaptations can't be good. In fact, the Harry Potter film series and The Lord of the Rings trilogy are excellent. Even Game of Thrones fans seem to acknowledge the HBO series as a worthy adaptation. One of the reasons fans have doubts is because making a book into a movie or television show usually means that things get lost in translation. Favorite characters disappear, the sequence of events is shifted, and the setting is usually changed to a more cost-effective filming location. Fortunately, Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events is a tried-and-true replica of the books . . . except for these changes. Major spoiler warning! The Bad Beginning (Episodes one and two) The Baudelaire parents are alive . . . or, so we thought. No bodies are recovered in the fire, »

Brian Grazer says Arrested Development season 5 “should be happening soon”

14 January 2017 1:27 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in the summer of 2015, executive producer Brian Grazer announced that Netflix had given the green light to a fifth season of Arrested Development, which he expected to hit the streaming service some time last year.

Obviously that didn’t come off, and Grazer has now provided a new update on its status to The Wrap, revealing that deals for the cast are now in place, and it “should be happening soon”.

“I think we’re really close to pulling it off finally,” said Grazer. “All of the actors have agreed to do it and I think they’ve agreed to their compensation structure. That’s been the hardest–it’s all hard…But it should be happening soon.”

The Parents on A Series of Unfortunate Events Are Not Who You Think They Are

14 January 2017 8:20 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Warning: spoilers for the entire season below! After months of waiting, Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events finally premiered on Friday the 13th (apt, don't you think?), and there's a lot to love. Neil Patrick Harris gives an inspired performance as the show's greasy villain, Count Olaf, and newcomers Malina Weissman and Louis Hynes (who play Violet and Klaus Baudelaire) are a delight. At the end of the first episode, we also get a pleasant surprise in the form of two unexpected guest stars: Will Arnett and Cobie Smulders, who play a mother and a father. Now, it's very easy to assume that these are the Baudelaire parents. Once you get to the end of episode seven, you'll learn that's sadly not the case. Let's recap. Episode one starts off with the brilliant Baudelaire children being informed that they're orphans now after their mansion burns down, with their doting mother »

A Series of Unfortunate Events: Here's Where Season 1 Leaves Off

14 January 2017 2:07 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

By the time the curtain drops on the first season of Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events, there are a lot of plates spinning, a phrase which here means, "there's a lot of information to keep track of." Certain mysteries have pretty clear answers by the time the finale finishes: we knew in advance that we'd plop down right at the end of the fourth book, and we now know what the deal is with those parents (played by Cobie Smulders and Will Arnett). In weaving such a mysterious and enigmatic tapestry, though, there are still other things to keep track of that are a bit more speculative. Looking for a rundown of all the loose ends, cliffhangers, and more when it comes to the finale? Look no further. 1. Where the Story Leaves Off In the final minutes of the season, Mr. Poe has taken the Baudelaires to the Prufrock Preparatory School. »

‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ Review: Netflix’s Lemony Snicket Series is Exactly What Kids Need in 2017 (Spoilers)

13 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events” can be a rather complicated show to explain succinctly, but the new Netflix original series is clear about one point at the onset and throughout: You shouldn’t watch it.

Though I have to vehemently disagree with such advice, each episode opens with Neil Patrick Harris begging audiences to avert their eyes (via an opening song, aptly titled “Look Away”). Patrick Warburton (as Lemony Snicket) then cautions, directly to camera, “If you are interested in stories with happy endings, then you’d be better off somewhere else.” Even the musical number closing Season 1 circles around the line, “You might dream that justice and peace win the day, but that’s not how this story goes.”

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Review: The Bad Beginning

13 January 2017 9:33 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The Baudelaire children are without a doubt the smartest siblings on the planet. 

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1 Episode 1 and Lemony A Series of Unfortunate Events Season 1 Episode 2 essentially covered the events of The Bad Beginning, which was the first book in the wildly popular book series. 

There was just something about these kids that held my attention throughout the two episodes. The acting from Malina Weissman (Violet), Louis Hynes (Klaus) and Presley Smith (Sunny) was just breathtaking. 

All three turned in riveting performances as the children lost their parents in a house fire. The story is one that definitely tugs at the heart strings. 

Being sent to live with someone who is trying to steal your fortune sounds like something ripped straight from a daytime soap opera. But the execution on this series really goes above and beyond to immerse viewers. 

Mother: I'm worried about the children. »

Arrested Development Season 5 Is Nearly (Finally!) in Production

12 January 2017 5:08 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Here’s some Arrested Development news as certain as the presence of money in the banana stand: Season 5 is happening, producer Brian Grazer says. It’ll just happen a little later than expected.

In 2015, Grazer assured fans that the newest season of the cult comedy would be released in 2016. “Netflix is determined to do more episodes, so we’re going to do more episodes,” he said on Adam Carolla’s podcast, offering a timetable that indicated that 17 new episodes of the Bluth family’s adventures would be available to stream around April or May 2016.

Brian Grazer Says Arrested Development Season 5 Is On Its Way

12 January 2017 6:56 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Arrested Development fans rejoice, for it seems that Imagine Entertainment and Netflix have finally found that extra money in the banana stand – making season 5 almost a done deal. The streaming platform confirmed its commitment to the series almost immediately after the long awaited fourth season debuted on its service in May 2013, and creator Mitch Hurwitz has repeatedly hinted at the direction he’s taking with scripts for further episodes – but recent comments from Brian Grazer at the Television Critics Association are the closest thing we have had to confirmation that the Bluths are coming back.

“We are close. I think we found a way to create the compensation structure for all the actors and create a work matrix so they can still make movies and do other things and it will all integrate. So we are really close — I think within a couple of weeks at the most.”

The Lonely Island: saluting 15 of their finest moments

11 January 2017 8:34 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Gem Wheeler Jan 12, 2017

Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone are comedy trio The Lonely Island. Here are just some of their finest songs and sketches...

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping was – yep, it’s time to call it - the funniest film of 2016. For those who blinked a little too long and didn’t catch it on its brief appearance in UK cinemas, the DVD release is your chance to find out what you’ve missed: a hilarious parody of current pop music’s excesses that blends acerbic criticism of predatory gossip shows and social media mobs with a sweet story of three feuding rappers struggling to mend their friendship. The fact that this touching tale also features Seal fending off a pack of wolves, Justin Timberlake dressed as a fish, and a bagpiper playing a lament at a beloved pet turtle’s Viking-inspired funeral comes as no surprise »

Latest Pair Of TV Spots For The Lego Batman Movie Find Bruce Wayne Flaunting His Skills

10 January 2017 10:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We are, at the time of writing, exactly one month away from the theatrical release of The Lego Batman Movie – and we couldn’t be more excited.

Chris McKay’s feature-film debut, one produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller of The Lego Movie, heralds the return of Will Arnett’s Caped Crusader, a lonely old vigilante who spends his spare time flaunting his skills in the Batcave – much to the bemusement of Ralph Fiennes’ Alfred. Gotham City is under siege once again, though, and it is Zach Galifianakis’ Clown Prince of Crime that hopes to invoke full-blown anarchy.

He won’t do so alone, however, as The Lego Batman Movie also features many of the iconic villains from Batman’s Rogues Gallery, including the Riddler, Catwoman, Penguin, Bane, Scarecrow, Gentleman Ghost, Calendar Man, the Condiment King and Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face. Rounding out that enviable lineup of pint-sized »

The Lego Batman Movie: New TV Spots!

10 January 2017 10:10 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

When The Lego Movie came out, I paid it no attention figuring it was just a kid's movie, (you would think I would have learned my lesson from downplaying Frozen) and it was at least a year before I got bored and gave it a shot. Much to my surprise, I Loved the movie, and I was particularly enthralled by a certain cowl wearing character from the film; Lego Batman.

By the way, I see what the creators did with him. They parodied all the negative aspects of Batman, cranked it up to 11, and came out with one of the most self-absorbed, narcissistic, pain in the arse characters ever to be invented. But if you are Lego Batman, you are shunned by your fellow Justice Leaguers and your only friend may be someone more obsessive than you are. Check out the brand new TV spots below from The Lego Batman Movie »

Robin Goes In For A Hug In New Lego Batman Movie Promo

7 January 2017 7:26 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Back when Warner Bros.’ The Lego Movie hit theatres in 2014, it took everyone by surprise. People weren’t really expecting much from the animated flick, but $469 million and 217 fresh reviews on Rotten Tomatoes later, and the film quickly became the talk of the town. Sensing much potential for a full blown franchise, the studio immediately ordered up a sequel along with a couple of spinoffs.

Next up for the series will be The Lego Batman Movie, featuring Will Arnett as the Caped Crusader after a scene stealing role in the original film. Set to bring us more gorgeous animation, laugh out loud gags and presumably, a story with a real sense of heart buried beneath its irreverent spirit, the spinoff is only about a month away now and as such, Warner Bros. has kicked the marketing machine into high gear.
