15 August 2017 1:22 AM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

(Aotn) Fox Searchlight have released the official poster and trailer for ‘Battle of the Sexes‘. The comedy-drama, which stars Emma Stone and Steve Carrell, loosely follows the real life events of the tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs in 1973, which was dubbed “Battle of the Sexes”. The project was announced back in 2015 with Stone and Carrell attached as the leads. After Stone had some apparent scheduling conflicts, Brie Larson was in talks for a short period of time to play King, before Stone was once again confirmed to star in the film.

The film was directed by Valerie Faris & Jonathan Dayton, and was written by Simon Beaufoy. The project was produced by Christian Colson, Danny Boyle, Robert Graf. In addition to Carrell and Stone, the stellar cast includes Andrea Riseborough, Sarah Silverman, Bill Pullman, Alan Cumming, Elisabeth Shue, Austin Stowell, Natalie Morales, Jessica Mcnamee, Fred Armisen, Lewis Pullman, »

Here at Et, we're obsessed with a lot of things -- and for the week of Aug. 7 to Aug. 13, this is what we're most excited about:

Why We're Obsessed With 'Difficult People'

The sassy sitcom that raises self-involvement to new comedic heights is back! Difficult People's Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner return for a third season on Hulu, alongside the rest of the cast, including Andrea Martin, James Urbaniak, and Gabourey Sidibe, plus an impressive array of guest stars: Stockard Channing, Tony Hale and Vanessa Williams!

‘Difficult People’ Review: Season 3 Is The Deepest Yet, Taking On Woody Allen, Politics, and Happiness

8 August 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Difficult People” isn’t for everyone, but that’s a big factor in its charm. The always whipsmart, fast-paced comedy created by Julie Klausner is extremely insular in its focus on Julie (Klausner) and Billy (Billy Eichner), pop culture-obsessed New York comedians whose bad attitudes are often the cause of their problems. But that focus means that as the show has progressed, the characters have had the chance to… well, maybe not “grow,” in the traditional sitcom sense. However, they do seem capable of change.

Which is good news, as Season 3 of a series like this could easily fall into a more-of-the-same trap. The core principles of “Difficult People” haven’t been altered — Julie and Billy are still best friends, and still relatively disdainful of anyone outside their friendship. But, based on the five episodes screened, “Difficult People” isn’t interested in treading water this season, contributing to a richer, »

Difficult People gets political, going wholly anti-“Bazinga!” in its Season 3 premiere.

The Hulu comedy returned Tuesday with three episodes, beginning with Billy and Julie interrupting CBS’ live broadcast of Sunday in the Park With George, which has been retitled Bazinga in the Park With George and stars the cast of The Big Bang Theory. Billy’s sign reads “Keep your Bazinga! out of my park,” and it’s perfect.

4 August 2017 11:11 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and a number of Romanian actors get together to make a television show. It almost sounds like the beginning of joke, and in a way, it is. Confused? We’ll explain.

Tatum, Gordon-Levitt, and their on-screen counterparts, Florin Piersic Jr. and Corneliu Ulici, premiered their new Amazon series, “Comrade Detective,” Thursday evening at the ArcLight Cinema in Hollywood.

The series is a spoof of classic ’80s cop shows, but with a twist: it takes place in Communist Romania with an entirely Romanian cast. English overdubs are provided by Tatum, Gordon-Levitt, and an eclectic collection of other American actors, including Jenny Slate, Nick Offerman, Jason Mantzoukas, and Chloë Sevigny.

Writer and executive producer Alessandro Tanaka said the inspiration for the series came from his appreciation of 1980s films like “Red Dawn” and “Rocky IV.” “These movies that are like Hollywood entertainment, but also had this fiercely anti-Soviet propaganda angle to them,” he »

“In the thick of 1980’s Cold War hysteria, the Romanian government created the country’s most popular and longest-running series, Comrade Detective, a sleek and gritty police show that not only entertained its citizens but also promoted Communist ideals and inspired a deep nationalism. The action-packed and blood-soaked first season finds Detectives Gregor Anghel (played by Piersic) and Iosef Baciu (played by Ulici) investigating the murder of fellow officer Nikita Ionesco and, in the process, unraveling a subversive plot to destroy their country »

If you like your action-spy dramas like “The Americans” and “Homeland,” that is with serious political overtones and lots of high tension, then “Comrade Detective” probably isn’t for you. But if you love Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt at their goofiest and are a fan of “Kung Pow! Enter the Fist” then you won’t be able to resist bingeing this new Amazon series.
