Newswire: Netflix wants to dance with Jack Black’s Polka King

26 June 2017 11:45 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Netflix seems to be taking a more proactive stance these days in terms of cutting original shows, but it has no qualms about continuing to throw money at original movies. Earlier today, we reported that the streaming service had bought the rights to the art world drama from the team behind Nightcrawler, and now Variety says that Netflix has also picked up the Jack Black-starring comedy The Polka King. As we noted when the project was originally announced last year, The Polka King is based on Joshua Brown and John Mikulak’s documentary The Man Who Would be Polka King, which centered around a Grammy-nominated artist named Jan Lewan who scammed millions of dollars out of his fans in an elaborate, Poland-themed Ponzi scheme.

Black is playing Lewan, and The Polka King will also star Jenny Slate, Jason Schwartzman, Jacki Weaver, J.B. Smoove, and Vanessa Bayer. The film was »

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later Trailer Is Wacky And Hilarious

23 June 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Wet Hot American Summer was a 2001 comedy from David Wain (Role Models, The State, Stella) set in 1981 and starring Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Michael Showalter, Marguerite Moreau, Paul Rudd, Zack Orth, Christoper Meloni, A.D. Miles, Molly Shannon, Ken Marino, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Jon H. Benjamin and Amy Poehler. If that sounds like an A-List cast, that's because many of the current stars in the group were not so famous or in demand at the time. The film focused on these counselors on the last day of camp at Camp Firewood, one of the jokes being that all the actors were playing well under their age range.

Then, fourteen years later in 2015, Netflix released a prequel in the form of a TV series, making the ages of the cast even more ridiculous, in typical Wain fashion. Joining the original, now star-studded cast in Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp »

Sofia Coppola Movies Ranked Worst to Best

19 June 2017 10:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sofia Coppola movies are defined by desolate landscapes, lonely characters, a wry sense of humor, and painterly compositions. For fans of this aesthetic, it’s pretty hard to get it wrong, and Coppola’s nearly 20-year track record attests to the consistency of her talent. From her feature-length debut “The Virgin Suicides” through her latest endeavor, “The Beguiled,” Coppola’s dreamlike visuals and deadpan tone have remained a distinctive voice in American cinema, one filled with gentle, forlorn faces and a world that always seems as though it’s on on the verge of devouring them whole. (If there isn’t already a Reddit forum theorizing that all Coppola movies exist in a single universe governed by the laws of sadness, someone should kick it up.)

While Coppola’s career was set in motion to some degree by the influence of a very famous father, her filmmaking capabilities are hardly dictated by Francis’ accomplishments. »

Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning Praise Sofia Coppola at ‘The Beguiled’s’ L.A. Premiere

13 June 2017 12:42 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fresh off her landmark best director win at this year’s Cannes Film Festival — only the second woman in the fest’s history to have snagged the esteemed honor — Sofia Coppola was on hand Monday night at the festive premiere of Focus Features’ “The Beguiled,” held at the Directors Guild of America in Hollywood.

“Beguiled” stars Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle FanningAddison Riecke, and Emma Howard were all on hand for the screening and celebration, along with producer Youree Henley and executive producer Fred Roos.

For Fanning, shooting the Civil War period drama on location in Louisiana was a “fun” experience — except, perhaps, for the constricting costumes.

“The costumes were just amazing — except for the corsets,” she joked. “Those were no fun.”

‘Class’ Races to Save the Planet In Its First Season Finale — What to Watch This Weekend, June 2-4

2 June 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Welcome to PeekTV, your daily look at the best that television has to offer. In each installment, we make three picks for the best shows to watch and…toss in a little extra. 

The Weekend of June 2-4

“Class”  (Saturday – BBC America, 7:00 p.m.) – The heroes face an impossible choice as they apply what they have learned so far to save the Earth. While Quill prepares to exact revenge on her captors, the friends are forced to fight Corakinus before he takes what he desires from April and Charlie in the Season 1 finale.

Back when the show first hit American airwaves, our Hanh Nguyen described that the show took a little while to find its footing. But as this “Doctor Who” youngster universe expands, it’s worth checking to see how far it’s come in its initial eight-episode run.

“The Leftovers” (Sunday – HBO, 11:30 p.m.) – Answers are elusive in the series finale. »

Guest Actor in a Comedy: The Frontrunners and Dark Horses for 2017 Emmys

1 June 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This category caused quite a bit of buzz last year when Peter MacNicol was nominated for “Veep” and then deemed ineligible, as he appeared in too many episodes to qualify as a guest. He was replaced by Peter Scolari of “Girls,” who went on to actually win. Well, this year both Peters are eligible and should return to the category. They’ll face off against some stiff competition, including Louis C.K., who has landed three noms for hosting “SNL” already. Dave Chapelle also hosted a popular episode of “SNL.” Jon Hamm and Fred Willard have both been nominated here before for their roles on “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Modern Family,” while Hugh Laurie has moved into the guest category for his returning character on “Veep.” Daveed Diggs was hilarious as Kimmy’s new love interest on “Kimmy Schmidt,” but he’s more likely to be recognized for his arc as Bow’s laidback brother on “Black-ish.” Guests »

Film Review: Blissful ‘My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea’

5 May 2017 8:39 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In animation, the real innovators who evolve the artform are the risk takers who stamp their own inspiration on those cartoon images. Director Dash Shaw is one of those breakthroughs, who creates a work of anarchistic art in “My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea.”

Rating: 4.5/5.0

Turning the institutional concept of high school literally upside down, the animated epic uses an extreme (and somewhat comic) disaster to separate the true heroes from the pretenders. The insecurities, social cliques and outsiders are all present, and writer/director Shaw uses them as society’s pecking order, on a Titanic that has become their school building. The voice actors are familiar – Susan Sarandon portrays a kick-ass lunch lady with gravel-voiced sincerity – but the real star is Dash Shaw’s cartoon vision, which mixes his simple line drawings with a kaleidoscope of amazing colors and surreal set pieces. With shadings of “Yellow »
