Edgy, provocative, and often hilarious, the drag scene is one of the most fascinating forms of entertainment. We now live in a world of demanded political correctness, and while the drag scene has greatly evolved over the last few years, the taboo sensationalism of it all still rings true. Thanks to the success of Logo’s RuPaul’s Drag Race, drag queens and drag culture have started to shift into the mainstream as something more than just Tootsie or The Rocky Horror Picture Show. However, you don’t need to be on a reality show competition to make a name for yourself in the drag community, and horror fans are missing out on the scream queen we didn’t know we needed.

Ahead of its return on June 12, Netflix has lifted the curtain on an all-new piece of key art for Orange is the New Black Season 3, as fans of the hit drama anticipate The Third Coming.
Bringing together the likes of Daya, Alex, Piper, Red and Crazy Eyes for the on-the-nose poster, the artwork is as much about the characters’ bleak hope of redemption as it is their religious beliefs, who are no strangers to drama within the walls of Litchfield Penitentiary. Eagle-eyed fans will be able to spot a number of plot points hidden amongst the finer details of the still, including references to failed marriages and potential love interests.
Orange is the New Black season 3 is now only a couple of months away, and it’s been confirmed that Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Kate Mugrew, Danielle Brooks, Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne, Taryn Manning, Laverne Cox, Michael Harney, Samira Wiley, »

Good news, "Inside Amy Schumer" fans: The show just got picked up for a fourth season, ahead of its season three premiere.
Schumer made the announcement herself during an appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman" on Monday night, where she told the host she just got word about the pickup before heading out onstage. Letterman congratulated the comedienne, and the duo chatted about the highs and lows of working on series television, where Schumer quipped that the annual effort doesn't get any easier, but "I find I'm getting easier."
In a statement released Tuesday, Comedy Central praised the show and Schumer.
"I'm so happy to keep the 'Inside Amy Schumer' family together," Schumer added in her own statement. "Excited »

Netflix's new Orange is the New Black Season 3 trailer seems to suggest things may be a little lighter for the ladies at Litchfield this year. And while it's no surprise that all of our favorites are back (I mean, where would they go?) there do seem to be a few changes. First of all … is that Nicky (Natasha Lyonne) on the outside? Is she on a furlough, or is she getting released? Morello (Yael Stone) is either in mourning over that, or over the definite end to her pretend fiancee relationship, because she's not wearing any makeup. This is Morello we're talking about! Something is definitely up. [caption id="attachment_441233" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Netflix[/caption] Further, Big Boo (Lea DeLaria) gets a makeover (even though it's really Taryn Manning's Pennsatucky who needs one), and just when we were all nearly done celebrating over the fact that Larry (Jason Biggs) is not going to be in this season, »

Last month, Netflix announced that Season 3 of Orange Is the New Black will debut on Friday, June 12. Today, the streaming service has debuted the first trailer for this upcoming 13-episode season, which teases that each of these prisoners will be tested in ways they never imagined. The series was renewed for Season 3 way back in May 2014, a month before the second season even debuted, so don't be surprised to hear about an early Season 4 renewal in the months ahead.
The women of Litchfield unapologetically return for the third coming. With a crisis of faith and their beliefs and loyalties being tested, each character must decide what and who to believe in. The series' ensemble includes Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Kate Mulgrew, Danielle Brooks, Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne, Taryn Manning, Laverne Cox, Michael Harney, Samira Wiley, Yael Stone and more.
This trailer also showcases the return of Alex, played by Laura Prepon, »
“Orange Is the New Black” returns for a third season on June 12, and the first look at the Netflix series is chock full of punches, tears and the “Betty Page of Litchfield.” That’s right — Alex is back. Laura Prepon‘s character returns with a black eye and an existential question about how she wound up back in jail after snitching her way to freedom last season. It looks like we finally get to learn what landed Nicky (Natasha Lyonne) in the slammer too. The character has been a big supporting player for the past two seasons, but apart from some. »

“Welcome to Litchfield, two point nothing,” is how Pennsatucky greets several new and returning inmates to the fictional prison in this trailer for the third season of Orange Is The New Black. The place might have undergone a sprucing up, but the craziness (and Crazy Eyes) within the walls remains much the same. We’re back with the likes of Taylor Schilling’s Piper, Kate Mulgrew’s Red, Natasha Lyonne’s Nicky, Uzo Aduba’s Suzanne (better known by the crazy name mentioned in the intro), and Laverne Cox’s Sophia, plus all the rest of the troublemakers in the Pen.From the looks of this, season three promises more of the usual bad behaviour, potential fights, Ott characters and outlandish ideas (check out Suzanne’s literary efforts, for one thing). The Netflix series has been consistently entertaining, so let’s hope the new season lives up to that. It »

Fresno is writer Karey Dornetto and director Jamie Babbit's first film collaboration and hopefully not the last. It is a crime comedy that tells the dysfunctional story of two sisters Shannon (played by Judy Greer) a registered sex offender fresh out of rehab and her bright and shiny yet unintentionally enabling sister Martha (played by Natasha Lyonne). When an accidental death occurs the sisters are stuck trying to figure out how to get rid of it or suffer the consequences. Cinelinx sat down with both Babbit and Dornetto to discuss the film.
Post-rehab, sister Shannon shacks up with Martha and they both work as maids at a nearby hotel. Shannon, not completely over her sex addiction, ends up having sex with a perv in the hotel and accidentally kills him. With a dead body on their hands, the two sisters decide to bring it to the local crematory to get rid of it. »

In the SXSW Narrative Spotlight selection "Fresno," Natasha Lyonne and Judy Greer pair up on screen for the first time to play two very different sisters. Lyonne, who was recently up for her first Emmy for her performance as the always horny, formerly drug-addicted inmate Nicky Nichols on Netflix's hit show "Orange is the New Black," goes against type to play Martha, the overly optimistic lesbian sister to Greer's Shannon, a deeply troubled woman fresh out of sex rehab. When Martha lands her sister a job as a maid at Fresno Suites, the local hotel in Fresno, CA, things quickly spiral out of control after Shannon accidentally kills a hotel guest following a post-rehab relapse. In addition to the two funny ladies, "Fresno" features a strong, mostly-female cast that includes Aubrey Plaza as Lyonne's love interest, Molly Shannon, Allison Tolman and Clea DuVall, and was directed by Lyonne's "But I'm a Cheerleader" director Jamie Babbit. »

SXSW 2015 Film Review
complete coverage of the SXSW Film Festival 2015
Director/Screenwriter: Patrick Brice
It’s hilarious. The boundaries of bromance, marriage, friendship and even penis comedy are pushed to a very funny limit with this film. It’s great to see Schilling doing great work outside of “Orange is the New Black.”
Final Score: 8/10
Reclusive small town locksmith, A.J. Manglehorn, who has never recovered from his losing his true love embarks on a new tenuous relationship with a local woman he meets at the bank. Cast: Al Pacino, Holly Hunter, Harmony Korine, Chris Messina. (U.S. Premiere)

SXSW 2015 Film Review
complete coverage of the SXSW Film Festival 2015
7 Chinese Brothers
Director/Screenwriter: Bob Byington
A man unaccustomed to telling the truth learns to at least describe it. Cast: Jason Schwartzman, Tunde Adebimpe, Eleanore Pienta, Olympia Dukakis, Stephen Root. (World Premiere) (film synopsis from sxsw.com)
The film is almost about nothing, just like the title of the film. Most of the time this doesn’t matter because we get to watch Schwartzman do many Schwartzman things, including acting opposite his real-life dog. There is a very sweet and surprisingly authentic death involving a key character. Besides that moment, when the film ends, you’ll quickly forget about it and move on.
Final Score: 6/10
Out of a job after a disastrous product launch, a big-city yuppie retreats to his suburban childhood home, in this heart-warming and hilarious film about crashing hard, »

The titular burg will probably not be throwing a parade for “Fresno,” a mean-spirited farce whose strenuous bad taste seldom translates into actual laughs. A cast of familiar faces and funny people — though they’ve all had much, much better material — will make this a viable ancillary item, though it’s unlikely to accrue the modest cult following attached to helmer Jamie Babbit’s 1999 debut feature, “But I’m a Cheerleader.”
Babbit and her scenarist Karey Dornetto have each worked on a number of good TV comedy shows; between them, they include “Girls,” “Arrested Development,” “Community,” “Nip/Tuck,” “Portlandia,” “Malcolm in the Middle,” “The Jamie Kennedy Experiment” and “South Park.” But the feature format is apparently not their friend, together or separately. “Cheerleader” was awfully broad, 2007’s “Itty Bitty Titty Committee” painfully so; for its part, “Fresno” provides pain and lots of broads (this is a lady-free zone), and is pretty awful. »

I judge comedy harder than probably any other genre. To keep me consistently laughing takes a lot of hard work, and a lot of comedies nowadays don't like to try all that hard, throwing stuff to the wind they aren't terribly committed to and hoping it sticks. So, when a comedy with a focused, specific voice comes along that has me laughing from start to finish, I am a happy guy. Fresno from director Jamie Babbit and writer Karey Dornetto managed to do that. It's not a comedic masterpiece. I don't want to overstate it. But it certainly is a funny 90 minutes that gives stars Judy Greer and Natasha Lyonne a lot of things to play with. Greer plays Shannon, a recovering sex addict trying to get her life in order, very reluctantly I might add. She has shacked up with her sister Martha (Lyonne), a hotel maid with a bit of a savior complex, »

The cast of Orange Is the New Black is back at it again, this time singing a version of “Don’t Talk to Me” by Tre Coast ft. Lycia Faith. While Taylor Schilling and Laura Prepon kick it off, it’s Samira Wiley, with her soulful voice, that makes this easier on the ears.
Also featured is new cast member Ruby Rose, who was brought onto the cast to get in between Piper and Alex. Natasha Lyonne, Kate Mulgrew, Uzo Aduba, Taryn Manning, Laverne Cox, and more also sing along.
The mini music video was inspired by Leanne’s “Stop, Don’t Talk to Me” bit in the laundry room in season two, which you can see at the end of the clip.
Orange Is the New Black season three premieres June 12 on Netflix.
While the Oitnb stars are great at recreating music videos, they’re also great at impersonating their favorite characters. »

With only three months to go until season three of Orange Is the New Black premieres, the cast is teasing fans with a new video. Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Natasha Lyonne, Taryn Manning, and a handful of the other Litchfield inmates are featured singing "Don't Talk to Me." Don't remember that song? Watch the full video for the moment when Leanne sings it in the laundry room. The real highlight of the montage, however, is getting the first look at new cast member Ruby Rose as Stella Carlin. Before new episodes return, take a look at everything we know about season three, and check out pictures from behind the scenes. »
The South by Southwest Film Festival is starting up this Friday, and I could not be more excited. This is my fourth year of attending the fest, and each year brings about a couple of films I love. What is also great about SXSW is, unlike Toronto or Cannes, there is plenty of room for discovery. Many films are making their world premieres here from lesser known filmmakers. SXSW also brings together an eclectic assortment of genres for the program, from indie dramas to horror films to science-fiction to you name it. I think going to those aforementioned festivals and just seeing "prestige pictures" continuously could get a bit boring. Sure, SXSW has a higher risk for a terrible movie, but the risk is exciting. Consequently, making a most anticipated list for a festival offering a lot of discoveries seems like a contradiction. But, of course, if you look through the program, »
