• Ip Man 3. For your completists. I haven't seen any of these since I figured The Grandmaster covered it for me. You?

The Lady in the Van. In which Maggie Smith gets grittier and descends the economic ladder for once. Maintain high society snobbier via her delusions of

Norm of the North. Animated. Though probably nothing we need worry about over here.

Why the Usually Frantic Pilot Season is Less Frenzied This Year

12 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There’s something missing from pilot season this year — that blood-pressure-raising sense of overwhelming frenzy.

The do-or-die panic surrounding the annual springtime ritual of producing some 70-80 pilots in nine weeks or so has ebbed because the process has changed so much in recent years, even for the old-guard broadcast networks.

More and more projects are receiving off-cycle pilot orders or straight-to-series pickups. That allows showrunners to start production at a safe distance from the traditional January-February crush of casting and recruiting directors and other key personnel.

For talent, the pressure has eased thanks to the exponential expansion of job opportunities: With 400-plus scripted series now airing across dozens of outlets in the U.S. alone, there’s plenty of work to be found throughout the year.

Character and supporting actors now routinely pop up on multiple series during any given 12-month period, sometimes even on shows that air concurrently on different networks. »

Meet the Blacks review – an angry and unapologetically gutter-mouthed comedy

1 April 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

While there is a whiff of social commentary in this low-budget spoof of the 2013 horror The Purge, only a comic performance from Bresha Webb provides any impact

“Daddy, they Purgin’!” So shouts Bresha Webb, whose comic performance in the ultra low-budget Meet the Blacks is so unpredictable and versatile it virtually makes up for the film’s many dull patches. Webb, who is 28 but plays the teen daughter of Carl Black, has a range that zips from Judy Holliday-like ditz to an antic, Kevin Hart-style faux toughie over the course of just one scene. That’s probably not a good indicator of the film’s overall consistency, but considering how ridiculous this movie is, ditching credibility for the higher cause of a laugh at any price is probably the right decision. Meet the Blacks is an asinine film (though with a kernel of seriousness) but whenever it feels »

Fifty Shades Of Black review

facebook

twitter

It only took a year: here's the spoof take on 50 Shades Of Grey. Chortle.

When Scary Movie came out back in 2000, some remarked that the sleeper hit horror parody was spoofing a satire by drawing inspiration and iconography from Scream, which Wes Craven intended as a trope-riddled satire of the genre. Nevertheless, four sequels and a slew of other parody movies (mostly by 'two of the six writers', Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg) followed and have served to run the art of cinematic parody into the ground over the last 15 years.

Fifty Shades Of Black hasn't been anywhere near as big a hit for co-writer and star Marlon Wayans as Scary Movie was, although it's arguably in a similar situation as that first breakout hit. Many of us (this reviewer included) felt that last year's E.L. James adaptation Fifty Shades Of Grey was already hilarious by accident, »

Fifty Shades of Black review – don’t go there…

13 March 2016 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Marlon Wayans’s El James cinema parody just isn’t funny

As if Scary Movie, Epic Movie, Vampires Suck et al weren’t bad enough, here comes another depressing “cinema parody” that isn’t half as amusing as the film(s) it wants us to laugh at. “How do we make this funny?” muses co-writer/star Marlon Wayans in the production notes. “The key was to im agine ‘What if Christian Grey were black?’” Cue jokes about wallet and car theft, fried chicken and Bill Cosby, alongside glasshouse/brick complaints about El James being a rubbish writer. When it all runs out of steam, the cock-and-ball routines downshift into riffs from Whiplash and Magic Mike, but sadly, these aren’t funny either.

Fifty Shades Of Black review: “An offensive, disgusting mess of a movie”

11 March 2016 2:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Fifty Shades Of Black review: There’s not a lot to like about this new comedy spoof from Marlon Wayans and co.

Fifty Shades Of Black review by Paul Heath. I honestly don’t know where to begin with Fifty Shades Of Black, the latest ‘comedy’ that spoofs last year’s Fifty Shades Of Grey movie, and many others. Actually, I will start here; there’s a scene near the end of the film where Marlon Wayans picks up a hardback copy of E.L. James’ source material and then immediately ridicules it for its poor dialogue and corny content. I can’t quite tell if he’s also taking a sly, fourth-wall-breaking dig at his own movie, or not. We’ll give him the benefit of the doubt, but we won’t forgive him for the rest of this ridiculous, offensive, putrid, dire and most importantly, completely unfunny effort that »

Fifty Shades of Black review – Marlon Wayans scrapes the spoof barrel

10 March 2016 1:30 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Clumsy comedy features a Cosby joke, a Kanye joke – and huge spaces where the laughs should be

Related: Fifty shades of gross – Marlon Wayans on body fungus, weird sex and Donald Trump

A spoof of the franchise that started out as Twilight fan fiction offers up another barrel for Marlon Wayans to scrape. This time the mucky mind who pitched into the Scary Movies (Scream parodies, the first two of which were directed by his older brother Keenan) and the Haunted Houses (Paranormal Activity parodies) turns his clumsy hand to El James’ bonkbuster and its derided film adaptation.

Diallo Riddle Joins Marlon Wayans & Essence Atkins in NBC Comedy Pilot

10 March 2016 9:01 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

After HBO decided not to move forward with the series he and Bashir Salahuddin had set up at the network ("Brothers in Atlanta"), Diallo Riddle (like Salahuddin did last week) found his next project. Riddle has joined the cast of NBC's comedy pilot from Marlon Wayans, titled "Marlon," which is inspired by the actor/comedian's life. Wayans will star in (and produce) the series that will follow the escapades of an unfitting but loving father who is committed to successful co-parenting with his polar opposite ex-wife (to be played by Essence Atkins). Riddle will play a guy who claims to be Wayans’ best friend and “business manager,” but who actually sleeps on Wayans’ couch, and essentially bleeds him. The comedy series will be produced by Universal Television, 3 Arts and Wayans Brothers Entertainment. Chris Moynihan will pen the script and executive produce alongside Rick Alvarez and Michael Rotenberg. Wayans was most recently seen on the. »

Fifty shades of gross – Marlon Wayans on body fungus, weird sex and Donald Trump

10 March 2016 8:39 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

After making his name with his brothers on the Scary Movie franchise, the crown prince of gross-out’s next target is even more terrifying – the prose of El James

Candida is a type of fungus. There are more than 20 species that live, quietly and happily, all over our bodies. Occasionally, in the warm, moist folds of an accommodating host, candida will go wild. Overgrowth. Infection. Then, ailments, including – if alternative therapy is your thing – “leaky gut”, a proposed condition (the NHS is dubious about it) that some health practitioners link to flatulence, diarrhoea and various shades of sexual dysfunction.

Marlon Wayans is eyeing the coffee he has just finished. He’s on the Candida diet, a no-dairy, no-gluten, no-alcohol, no-sugar cleanse that he does twice a year to flush out the excess fungus. Caffeine is also on the banned substance list, but he has been on the go for 18 hours, »

In cinemas from this Friday is the new comedy from Marlon Wayans, Fifty Shades Of Black.

This week, we caught up with Marlon in London where he spoke about filming the movie, his love of English girls, being single, shooting that Mmxxl scene and getting into shape for his new role.

Fusion to Air Russell Simmons’ All Def Movie Awards Special Opposite Oscars

22 February 2016 1:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s not likely to put a dent in the ratings for the Oscars, but the symbolism can’t be ignored. Russell Simmons’ All Def Movie Awards has struck a deal for a highlights special to air Sunday on the Fusion cabler opposite ABC’s telecast of the 88th annual Academy Awards.

The event produced by Simmons’ All Def Digital venture was born in response to the uproar over this year’s all-white roster of Oscar acting nominees, the second consecutive year that minority actors were left on the sidelines of filmdom’s most coveted kudos. Tony Rock, brother of Oscars host Chris Rock, will emcee the All Def ceremony. Fusion, moreover, is jointly owned by ABC parent Disney and Univision, although Univision is in the process of buying out Disney’s stake in the cable channel that launched in October 2013.

The All Def ceremony will tape Wednesday night at Hollywood nightclub Lure. »
