Here’s a reminder of the key events in Top Of The Lake series 1, for anyone whose memory needs a jog. Spoilers…
Warning: contains series one spoilers.
Detective Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss) returns to her remote New Zealand hometown of Laketop to visit her mother who is dying of cancer, leaving behind in Sydney her fiancé of five years, Steve. When twelve-year-old Tui (Jacqueline Joe) is found standing fully dressed in the local lake, the school nurse discovers that Tui is five months pregnant. Robin is brought in to interview the child on account of her experience with abuse cases. When asked who impregnated her, Tui writes the word “No-one” on a piece of paper.
Seann William Scott returns in Goon: Last of the Enforcers the cartilage crunching sequel to the 2011 hockey comedy Goon, a follow-up that’s even “faster, funnier and more foul-mouthed than the original.”
Back as hockey star Doug Glatt, Scott is supported here with cast that includes Liev Schreiber (Spotlight) and Alison Pill (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), reprising their roles from the first film, Elisha Cuthbert (24) and Callum Keith Rennie (Californication), with 22 Jump Street’s Wyatt Russell as Glatt’s nemesis, and Deadpool’s T. J. Miller on scene-stealing form as inappropriate sports commentator Chad Bailey.
From the press release:
An assured feature directing debut from comedy star Jay Baruchel (This Is The End, Knocked Up, How To Train Your Dragon), this is a film you can’t help but love – crass but charming, packed with eccentric and loveable characters, and just the right balance of sports carnage and comedy »

Getting four street-smart Marvel heroes on screen together in The Defenders took a superhuman behind the scenes effort...
The Defenders aren’t the Avengers or the Justice League. Those are the crown jewels of superhero intellectual property, instantly recognisable icons with decades of history in everything from comics to toys to video games. Most of Marvel’s roster of Netflix heroes—collectively known as the Defenders—operate under their real names and don’t even bother with costumes. They’re literal social justice warriors, working to change their neighbourhoods, not the world, for the better. The Defenders are underdogs, and if there’s one thing New York City loves, it’s an underdog.

Goon: Last Of The Enforcers Trailer The second movie trailer for Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017) from No Trace Camping and Caramel Film. As far as movie trailers go, this one is pretty unremarkable. For the most part, it makes the movie look like just another comedy churned out by Hollywood, with lots of slapstick [...]

Comedy sequels are already a rare breed of movie, but sports comedy sequels are seen even less. But that didn’t stop actor Jay Baruchel from getting his passion project off the ground: a sequel to the hockey comedy Goon that he wrote back in 2011.

Over the years, we’ve often championed the beautifully violent and big hearted Goon, which starred Seann William Scott, Alison Pill, Liev Schreiber and Jay Baruchel himself, to name a few. While the sequel, Last Of The Enforcers has already been released in Canada, we were still waiting for it to make its fist-flinging way to this side of the Atlantic, but confirmation of the UK release date has come from Mr Baruchel during a new interview we've done with him about his appointment to and acquisition of Chapterhouse Comics in Canada.

Good news for “Southland Tales” fans: the 2007 fantasy thriller could be getting an expanded re-release. In an interview with Vulture, director Richard Kelly discussed the possibility of his surreal feature getting some form of re-release, and an “expanded” one at that.
“Southland Tales” is set in post-apocalyptic Los Angeles in the then near future of 2008. The country goes into chaotic mode after an explosion on July 4, and small gangs take over the cities. In La, a group of rebels launch a scientific experiment to duplicate people’s identity. And that’s just the beginning of Kelly’s unique — and maligned — creative vision. When the film was released, it was widely bashed by critics and audiences alike, and still holds a dismal 36% Rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Won’t Give Up the Fight: Interview with the star of Goon: Last of the Enforcers, Liev Schreiber Won’t Give Up the Fight: Interview with the star of Goon: Last of the Enforcers, Liev Schreiber Michael Kennedy3/15/2017 10:02:00 Am
A few years ago, an eclectic team of American and Canadian filmmakers teamed up for Goon. The Canadian comedy told the story of Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott), a bouncer turned minor league hockey enforcer, and the bruised and bloodied ice warriors that fought with and against him.
Canadian hockey fan Jay Baruchel co-wrote the script and played Doug’s friend Pat, while other Canucks like Alison Pill, Eugene Levy and Marc-André Grondin rounded out the cast. Former NHL tough guy Georges Laraque even had a cameo. But one of the most unexpected cast members may have been American Liev Schreiber (Spotlight, TV’s Ray Donovan) as enforcer Ross “The Boss” Rhea. »
