Writer-director Brad Bird confirmed last week that he has started writing the script for The Incredibles 2, one year after Disney originally announced that this sequel to The Incredibles is finally happening. Of course, not much has been revealed about the story at this time, but in the 10 years since The Incredibles was released in late 2004, the superhero genre itself has grown exponentially. The filmmaker recently spoke with Little White Lies, where he says that he doesn't exactly plan on addressing certain developments or trends within the genre itself for his sequel. And that this will be a character driven adventure.
"Well, I worry if you comment too much on other movies then you might just be coasting off their good will. There was a very lazy trend in comedy where somebody would start singing the theme song from The Flintstones and you're supposed to dig on it just because you recognize it. »

“We always wanted to keep it going,” Duchovny told Variety on Thursday at NBC’s Summer Press Day in Pasadena, Calif., where he was on site to promote his upcoming drama “Aquarius,” which premieres May 28. “We always envisioned a movie franchise when we stopped the TV show, and we did two — the second one did well, but I guess not well enough to do a third, and we were all kind of disappointed that didn’t happen that way.”
“The X-Files” reboot will return to Fox with original creator Chris Carter for six episodes, which Duchovny says was appealing to him. “Television started to change in that now there are limited runs.” He added: “I think it’s the way »

After a number of trailers and TV spots, it's quite clear that the iconic clown from the original 1982 horror classic Poltergeist is responsible for one of this remake's biggest scares. A new poster has arrived for the new haunted house thrill ride, and it showcases the not-so-funny doll cracking an evil grin before it leaps off the toy shelf with its cruel intentions. Don't be afraid, it's only a movie!
Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi takes over from Steven Spielberg as producer on Poltergeist, with director Gil Kenan stepping in for original director Tobe Hooper. Together, they bring a contemporized spin on this legendary tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.
20th Century Fox and MGM will release Poltergeist this summer, »
NBC’s next live musical event will come with a literal twist (or, more likely, dozens of ‘em).
The network announced on Monday that executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron — the men behind NBC’s live versions of The Sound of Music and Peter Pan — will mount a live production of The Wiz in partnership with Cirque du Soleil on Dec. 3. Cirque’s new stage theatrical division will then present The Wiz as a major Broadway revival for the 2016-17 season.

Now playing in theaters is Get Hard, the directorial debut of Tropic Thunder and Men in Black 3 scribe Etan Cohen. The film stars Will Ferrell as a wealthy Bernie Madoff-type investment banker who enlists the man who washes his car (Kevin Hart) to help prepare him for a maximum-security prison sentence. The film also stars Alison Brie, Craig T. Nelson, Tip T.I. Harris, Ariana Neal, and Edwina Findley Dickerson. For more on the film, watch the green and red band trailers. A few days ago I landed an exclusive video interview with Tip T.I. Harris. He talked about working with Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell, if he got to see Kevin laugh a lot during takes, how much of his dialogue was scripted versus improvised, Marvel’s Ant-Man, and more. Here’s the interview followed by a list of what we talked about.

Warner Bros. Pictures released their new comedy film, "Get Hard," into theaters this weekend, and all the top, major critics have given their reviews for it. It turns out that most of them were just not quite feeling it, giving it just an overall 34 score out of a possible 100 across 41 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The film stars: Will Ferrell, Craig T. Nelson, Kevin Hart, Tip "T.I." Harris and Alison Brie. We've posted blurbs from a couple of the critics,below. Mick Lasalle over at the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a decent 75 grade, stating: " It matches up two comic actors and instead of clashing or canceling each other out, they bring in the best possible result: A comedy with twice the laughs." Inkoo Kang from TheWrap, gave it a 65 score, saying: " Ferrell and Hart don’t bring anything that we haven’t seen from them before, but they create a bouncy, »

1990s nostalgia has been popular lately. Variety reports that Craig T. Nelson (Parenthood) is reprising his role in a Coach sequel for NBC, Fox brought back the X-Files, Netflix is turning Wet Hot American Summer into a series, and Showtime is bringing Twin Peaks out from the Black Lodge. It is only appropriate that another favorite nineties TV series is remembered, albeit in oral history form. Uproxx has interviewed the writers and stars of NewsRadio to find out how influential this sitcom was.
NewsRadio starred Dave Foley, Stephen Root, Maura Tierney, Phil Hartman, Andy Dick, and Khandi Alexander, and focused on characters who worked at Wnyx, an Am News Radio Station in New York. Although NewsRadio aired for five seasons between 1995 and 1999, it changed time slots eleven times, and was considered a failure by Must-See TV standards. Executive producer and creator Paul Simms was known to lash out at NBC executives, »

Get Hard, 2015
Directed by Etan Cohen
When millionaire James King is nailed for fraud and bound for San Quentin, he turns to Darnell Lewis to prep him to go behind bars.
Let’s just address the elephant in the room; Get Hard is one of the most relentlessly offensive movies to be released in quite some time, which is a loaded statement considering that pretty much all R-rated comedies are about being juvenile. That isn’t a bad thing though; complete stupidity can yield hilarious material so long as the execution is not malicious, but intended for fun. Yes, Get Hard goes for broke with racial and sexual content (there is literally a scene where Will Ferrell comes inches away from sucking on a penis) but I’ll be damned »

NBC is dipping into the archives for its newest project, which will see the classic 1990s sitcom Coach return to the small screen, reports EW.
Original star Craig T. Nelson (Parenthood, Blades of Glory) is to reprise his role almost 20 years since the end of the show. But rather than a reboot or a retool, the new series will act as a sequel to the original, which ran from 1989 to 1997, and run for 13 episodes.
No news on whether any other original cast members will also return, but original creator Barry Kemp will write and executive produce the new run.
The new series will reportedly see Coach Hayden Fox (Nelson), in the present day having retired from coaching. He is called back to become assistant coach to his own grown son, who is the new head coach at an Ivy league school in Pennsylvania that is just starting up a new team. »

Chicago – Will Ferrell is a funny guy. Kevin Hart can be a funny guy. But the prison buddy comedy “Get Hard” is woefully less than the sum of its comedic parts. It fires buckshot of lame jokes at its audience, but precious few come anywhere near their targets as it squanders nearly every comic opportunity that comes its way.
Ferrell stars as a wealthy hedge fund manager with a gold-digging fiancée (Alison Brie), and a house full of servants who can barely conceal their disdain for him. His life begins to crumble when he’s accused of fraud and embezzlement, and arrested at his own birthday party. No one is asking for “The Verdict” in a Will Ferrell/Kevin Hart comedy, but even by the lackadaisical standards of a studio comedy, Ferrell is convicted and sentenced to 10 years hard labor in San Quentin based on alarmingly little evidence and with little or no provocation. »

Veronica Mars may be the poster child for resurrected TV shows, but it's not the only show to be given a second chance after cancellation. The Comeback came back last year, the Entourage movie is due out in June, NBC is rebooting Heroes for a miniseries, and most recently, Craig T. Nelson is starring in a reboot of Coach. Don't even get us started on Arrested Development and Community. Here's a look at all the shows we lost and then found again. Source: ABC »
“I’m excited to return to my Heroes roots,” said Oka, who will appear in a multi-episode arc. “Hiro Nakamura was such an inspirational role to play, and I’m hoping the fans will enjoy seeing him back on TV.”
Oka is currently co-starring in CBS’ Hawaii Five-0, which is shooting its season (or series?) finale this week.

Full disclosure: I am not a fan of Will Ferrell’s comedies. I hoped that Kevin Hart’s brand of energy and the boldness of dealing head-on with racial stereotypes might give Get Hard a different dimension. No such luck. My students at USC laughed fairly often at our screening last night but I did not. Ferrell’s stock-in-trade is a self-aware silliness. In this film he plays a clueless money manipulator who’s enjoyed the fruits of success. He lives in a ridiculously opulent home with a social-climbing fiancée (Alison Brie) whose father (Craig T. Nelson) is also his boss. He treats his Latino house staff with the same irritating condescension as the fellow (Hart) who ...
