Best TV Episodes of 2015 (So Far): Part Two

27 June 2015 6:51 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Back to Part 1 of the Best TV Episodes of 2015 (So Far)

Man Seeking Woman, “Teacup”

Written by Sofia Alvarez

Directed by Tim Kirkby

Aired March 11th, 2015 on Fxx

You won’t find Fxx’s Man Seeking Woman in many year-end discussions, but over the course of its admittedly spotty, watched-by-no-one first season, it staked a claim on some truly unique stylistic real estate in a landscape previously thought to be worked to death: the search for love. Over the last year, there has been a tremendous influx in the number of series trying to combine a “modern” and “edgy” take on modern courtship with ages-old sitcom tropes, but most of these have ranged from lackluster to outright lame. (See almost the entire new network comedy lineup, Fall/Winter 2014-15.) Creator Simon Rich’s vision of the dating world as a literal fantasy hellscape—complete with demonic destination weddings, time travel, »

Jay Baruchel dishes 'cartoon come to life' comedy 'Man Seeking Woman' (Exclusive Video)

22 June 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Jay Baruchel tells us he has found the perfect pitch for his new Fxx comedy “Man Seeking Woman”: “It’s a cartoon come to life!” During our recent webcam chat (watch below), the actor opens up about his leading role on the zany laffer, saying,“You really have no idea what it’s going to be from one scene to the next and who’s going to show up and what crazy stuff is going to happen." As he readily admits, "I don’t know how many TV shows you can say that about.” -Break- Why "Man Seeking Woman" is the best show that you are not watching According to the actor who plays Josh Greenberg, an unassuming young man navigating the dating scene, the narrative exists in an “elastic” reality, His misadventures often veer into fantasies that are largely inconsequential to the ongoing story. This makes “Man Seeking Woman” an unusual hyb. »

Goon 2: Jay Baruchel Shares First Image from the Last Of The Enforcers Set

20 June 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The hockey comedy Goon was a nice little underrated gem of 2011, and while there had been talk of a sequel in the interim, it was unclear if the follow-up would actually come to fruition. Cut to today, where production is indeed underway on Goon 2, which is officially titled Goon: Last of the Enforcers. We know filming has begun because Jay Baruchel just shared an image of the cast reunited on set, decked out in full hockey gear. In addition to producing and filling a supporting role onscreen, Baruchel co-wrote the first film alongside Evan Goldberg. For Last of the Enforcers, Baruchel is making his directorial debut, taking over helming duties from Goon’s Michael Dowse. Goon star Seann William Scott returns in the lead role as Doug “the Thug” Glatt, who in the first film went from bar bouncer to enforcer for a minor league hockey team. In the sequel, »

18 June 2015 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

Annecy: DreamWorks’ Margie Cohn Unveils ‘Dragons: Race to the Edge’

16 June 2015 10:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Annecy – “This changes everything,” “How to Train Your Dragon” hero Hiccup (once more voiced by Jay Baruchel) mysteriously announces at the opening credit roll climax of DreamWorks Animation TV’s new series spinoff, “Dragons: Race to the Edge,” as he brandishes an emblazoned metal cylinder with a light-shaft.

He’s referring the cylinder, soon known as the Dragon Eye, but he could have been talking about the migration of “How To’s” smaller screen riff from Cartoon Network to Netflix that exclusively releases the first 13-seg season of “Race” on June 26, as part of its groundbreaking multiyear deal with DreamWorks Animation.

The Netflix impact is clear to see from the get-go of “Race to the Edge,” which had its European premiere Tuesday at Annecy Fest, the world’s biggest animation meet, with DreamWorks Animation head of television Margie Cohn fielding questions at a Q&A, after a screening of »

Emmy Mvp: 'Man Seeking Woman' is the best show flying under the radar

13 June 2015 3:45 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

The first season of “Man Seeking Woman” aired on Fxx this winter. Averaging 0.2 million viewers, it was the definition of “under the radar,” which is a shame because it was just about the funniest thing on television this past season. -Break- A surreal half-hour comedy that plays loose with its narrative, the absurdist style of “Man Seeking Woman” will admittedly not be for everyone, but it is certainly unique. This is one show where the less you know, the better, so suffice it to say that two episodes is all that it takes for a full understanding. Emmy Mvp: "Looking" for nominations for one of television's best shows On the surface, “Man Seeking Woman” is a dating comedy grounded by a reliable performance from Jay Baruchel ("This is the End") in the well-meaning and awkward everyman role that he often inhabits. Based on a book of short stories by Simon Rich, »

36 major blockbusters and why they never got made

11 June 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We look at the films that slipped through Hollywood's net, from biblical epics to a time travelling Gladiator sequel...

This article contains a spoiler for Gladiator

If you're one of those frustrated over the quality of many of the blockbusters that make it to the inside of a multiplex, then ponder the following. For each of these were supposed to be major projects, that for one reason or another, stalled on their way to the big screen. Some still may make it. But for many others, the journey is over. Here are the big blockbusters that never were...

1. Airframe

The late Michael Crichton scored another residential on the bestseller list with his impressive thriller, Airframe. It was published in 1996, just after films of Crichton works such as Jurassic Park, Rising Sun, Disclosure and the immortal Congo had proven to be hits of various sizes.

So: a hit book, another techno thriller, »

Elisha Cuthbert Skates Her Way Into Jay Baruchel's 'Goon 2'

9 June 2015 2:31 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

2011's R-rated raunchy-sports-comedy-with-a-heart-of-gold Goon is the latest comedy to be getting a sequel. And while law of averages are not in its favor when it comes to comedy sequels, Seann William Scott, Jay Baruchel, Liev Schreiber and Alison Pill are all set to return and throw around hockey pucks as much as they do certain four-letter words in Goon: Last of the Enforcers. Joining them inside the ice rink, however, is Elisha Cuthbert. The "24" and Girl Next Door star joins the movie to play Pill's outlandish sister. Pill plays Eva, the love interest to rising hockey star Doug "The Thug" Glatt (Scott). This new movie finds Doug and his team, Halifax Highlanders, working with a variety of new players during a pro lockout. So it looks like Cutherbert isn't the only newbie in the Goon universe, and with production to begin on June 21 in Toronto under producers David Gross, Jesse Shapira and Jeff Arkuss, »

'Superman' Battles 'Wonder Woman' In Justice League: Mortal Storyboard Art

1 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Following on from the announcement that a documentary about George Miller's cancelled Justice League: Mortal was in the works, we continue to get some very interesting "what if" pre-production teases. The latest comes from storyboard artist Steve Skroce, who posted the following samples of his work to his Facebook page. In the script, Maxwell Lord (Jay Baruchel) takes control of Superman's (D.J. Cotrona) mind and forces him to engage his team-mates in combat. This battle with Wonder Woman (Megan Gale) would have happened towards the end of the film, just before Batman (Armie Hammer) snaps Lord's neck! In the comics it's actually Wonder Woman who is forced to commit the murder... but there you go.   Here's what Skroce had to say about the artwork. "I'm seeing a lot of art from the cancelled George Miller Justice League film so here's a few boards that I did for the film. »

Superman takes on Wonder Woman in storyboard art from George Miller’s Justice League Mortal

1 June 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since the announcement of a documentary following the development of the failed Justice League Mortal, we’ve started to see a lot more of what could have been. We’ve seen some concept art for Aquaman and Wonder Woman as well as a sculpture of Martian Manhunter and now we have a new set of storyboard art that sees the Man of Steel (D.J. Cotrona) take on Princess Diana of Themyscira (Megan Gale).

Check them out below:

So why is Superman fighting Wonder Woman? Well, in the movie The Last Son of Krypton would have had his mind taken over by Maxwell Lord (Jay Baruchel), which would have turned him against his team mates. However, it would have all ended up badly for Lord when Batman (Armie Hammer) steps in to snap his neck. Ouch.

Justice League Mortal was originally set to go into production in 2007 before Warner Bros. decided to pull the plug. »
