Five "Must-See" Movies for May 2015

1 May 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There aren't a lot of interesting movies hitting theaters this May. Heck, there aren't a lot of movies, period, hitting theaters this May. Sure, one title that will soon be crowned one of the biggest of all-time -- you know the one of which I speak -- after it bowed late last night to the tune of $27.6 million. Who knows, it could very well be the case that several of you read this article while you're standing in line to see the-movie-that-shall-not-be-named-until-page-two. And if that's the case, I urge you to share this with your cohorts, all those people standing around you looking for something to do until the movie finally (Finally!) starts. Do it now, don't worry, I'll wait. But back to what I was saying... Outside of a handful of blockbusters, there just isn't a lot on the release slate for the coming month. It's slim pickings, y'all! »

Goon 2 to shoot this summer

22 April 2015 10:45 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Seann William Scott and Jay Baruchel are back for Goon 2 - which finally goes before the cameras this year...

The 2011 ice hockey comedy Goon was, by distance, one of the most violent films of that year. It was also really rather good. Starring Seann William Scott and Jay Baruchel, the plan for some time had been to make a sequel to the movie. And finally, that sequel is happening.

Seann William Scott confirmed the news on Reddit, where he's just done one of its Ama whatsits. He wrote that "I did a bit of fight training for Goon. For Goon 2, I’ve been fight-training for the past month, and next month in May I start working with an Mma fighter, and then some skating (obviously, a lot of skating). We start shooting Goon 2 in mid-June, and if everybody does their jobs and we execute the amazing script »

Goon 2

"Goon" film star Seann William Scott has revealed that a sequel to the hockey comedy is set to start filming in a couple of months time. In a new Reddit Ama, Scott says he's been fight-training for the past month and begins work with an Mma fighter next month ahead of some skating lessons.

Filming begins mid-June from a script co-written by Jay Baruchel Jesse Chabot. Michael Dowse is thought to be returning to the director's chair for the follow-up. [Source: Collider]

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk

Ang Lee confirmed at Sony's CinemaCon presentation that he will shoot all of his military drama "Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk" in 3D and at a ultra-high frame rate of 120 frames per second - twice that of Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" film trilogy.

This marks the first film ever shot entirely at the 120 fps and is aimed at immersing viewers in »

Goon 2 Will Shoot In The Summer

22 April 2015 6:20 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

You wouldn't quite call it a sleeper hit (it didn't even reach $10m at the box office), but there's been talk of a sequel to the hockey comedy Goon ever since its release back in 2011. It's been a while since we heard anything, but the film's star Seann William Scott has just revealed that Goon 2 is suddenly underway, with shooting set to start in a couple of months time."I’ve been fight-training for the past month," Scott told Reddit, "and next month in May I start working with an Mma fighter, and then some skating (obviously, a lot of skating). We start shooting Goon 2 in mid-June, and if everybody does their jobs and we execute the amazing script that Jay Baruchel and his co-writer wrote, the fucking movie will be wicked.”That co-writer, if this is still the same set-up that Baruchel was talking about in 2012, is Jesse Chabot, »

Seann William Scott says Goon 2 will start filming in June

At this point I think everyone has had the pleasure of checking out the underrated sports gem Goon. If not, get on that pronto and prepare yourself for a funny and oftentimes heartwarming tale of enforcer Doug Glatt (played to perfection by Seann William Scott) as he literally fights his way through minor league hockey. Writer Jay Baruchel has said that a sequel was in the works for some time now, but it looks like we finally have a production date. Thanks to an Ama Sean William Scott took »

HitFix First Look: 'Man Seeking Woman' finale goes to the ends of the Earth

17 March 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fxx's "Man Seeking Woman" has its season finale on Wednesday (March 18) night at 10:30 with an episode titled "Scepter." Fortunately for fans of the frequently absurd romantic fantasia, Fxx announced a second season renewal last week for the Jay Baruchel comic vehicle. Last week's "Man Seeking Woman," which Fxx kept referring to as "Woman Seeking Man," was one of my favorite episodes to date. After eight episodes of often inspired, but occasionally repetitive, glimpses of heightened romance through the eyes of Baruchel's Josh, the episode titled "Teacup" inverted the formula and followed Britt Lower's Liz for 30 minutes. For me, the temporary swap to the gender dynamics served a number of purposes including the simple refreshing of an already-familiar structure, but a necessary ideological variation for viewers concerned that Josh's point-of-view left "Msw" occasionally too bro-y. In addition, in letting Lower shine for an episode, "Teacup" offered "Msw" evidence that »

Ready For Their Close-Up: Six TV Characters Worthy of a Spin-Off

Television history is littered with the bodies of ill-advised spin-offs. Their corpses, copies of reviews and overnights crumpled in their clawed little hands, defile the memories of the successful shows that spawned them and serve as cautionary tales for every writer tempted to go to the same well twice… read the full article.

Why You Should Be Watching: You’re the Worst

When it debuted in early 2014 on FX, You’re the Worst unfortunately got lumped together with all the other shows about people in relationships that were in production or released around that time. You’re the Worst was a lower-key choice for the network: a small-scale character comedy that had none of the splashy, dramatic flare of other flagship shows. This tonal difference between the network and You’re the Worst was maybe why it was »

Why 'Man Seeking Woman' Switched to 'Women Seeking Man,' And Simon Rich's Hopes for Season 2

12 March 2015 8:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Read More: 'Man Seeking Woman' Renewed for Second Season by Fxx When "Man Seeking Woman" first premiered on Fxx, the comedy immediately revealed itself as full of imagination and wit, but also had a somewhat myopic focus on the dating life of Josh (Jay Baruchel). In the penultimate episode of Season 1, though, that changed. "Teacup," Episode 9, flipped the point of view to Josh's sister Liz (Britt Lower), whose struggle to find love takes a very different path. Why make the switch? Indiewire spoke with creator Simon Rich to find out, as well what will and won't shift for Season 2. First, congrats on the Season 2 pickup. Thanks so much. We're so excited to make more. Since last we talked, the show seems to have built a real following. Yeah, it's so gratifying when people say they relate to the show. When they watch it and see certain situations and say, »

Why You Should Be Watching: Man Seeking Woman

11 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The show begins with Josh (Jay Baruchel) awkwardly leaving the apartment of his now ex-girlfriend Maggie (Maya Erskine). As he walks away, heartbroken, suddenly it starts raining. But it’s only raining on him, nobody else. Dead birds fall from the sky and hit him, furthering his depressing state. The show only gets weirder from there. Within the next ten minutes, he’s gone on a date with an actual troll. Yes, you read that right. An actual troll. By the end of the pilot he’s also discovered that his ex-girlfriend is dating Hitler. Yes, that Hitler. This is just the first episode, and there are 9 more to go from there (plus another season on the way!), each one getting progressively more bizarre.

Fxx’s comedy, which airs on Wednesday nights and is created by showrunner Simon Rich, has many strengths, chief among them being how it takes very »

Man Seeking Woman gets Season 2 renewal by Fxx

4 March 2015 10:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

FX has decided to hand out a second season order to its new comedy series Man Seeking Woman. The show stars Jay Baruchel, Britt Lower, Maya Erskine and Eric André and is currently amidst its first season now.

Man Seeking Woman hasn’t thus far had strong ratings, but FX has been known to show extreme patience with its original content in the past and is once again demonstrating its support by giving the freshman series the go ahead for Season 2. The show initially opened to 326,000 total viewers but according to Deadline that dropped to 185,000 in Week 2. Now after episode 5, the first season currently averages 254,000 adults 18-34 and 353,000 adults 18-49.

The lesson… sometimes it just takes a little time to find your audience. With It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia (now in its 10th Season) to serve as a model, the network clearly understands how to cultivate a viewership. The »

'Man Seeking Woman' Renewed for Second Season by Fxx

3 March 2015 11:12 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Fxx has greenlit a second season for its high-concept comedy series "Man Seeking Woman." The sitcom follows Josh Greenberg (Jay Baruchel), a dorky 20-something embarking on a fantastical quest to find true love. His encounters range from basic one-night stands to blind dates with a (literal) troll.  "Man Seeking Woman" has fared well on the young Fxx, which was established as an offshoot to FX in order to target younger viewers: Average viewership among 18-49 year-olds is 67 percent higher than Fxx's primetime average, and the median age of its viewers is 32. The comedy also earned strong reviews from critics out of its January premiere. "Working on 'Man Seeking Woman' has been the creative highlight of my life," showrunner Simon Rich said in a release. "Fxx gave us the freedom to make the show we love and they let us build some truly disgusting monsters. I'm so grateful to »
