Netflix just can't get enough of the Bluths. Maybe. While "Arrested Development" producer Brian Grazer recently indicated that the streaming service is full steam ahead on a fifth season of the comedy, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos seems a little more reticent -- though optimistic. At today's TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, Sarandos said that Netflix is in "negotiations" now to bring the show back. “We are plugging along,” Sarandos said. “It’s a very long complex deal to make for these guys, both because the talent is very busy and working on other shows, but also because the show is owned by Fox… It is our intent to have a new season of 'Arrested Development.' All the negotiations are underway.” The fourth season was plagued by complex scheduling problems due to the stars' hectic professional lives, so similar complications may be slowing the train a bit. »

Alternating between indie-circuit hits (Young Ones) and blockbuster hits (Maleficent), Elle Fanning has worked steadily to emerge out of older sister Dakota’s Hollywood shadow, and she’ll be aiming squarely for the hearts and minds of the Ya crowd in upcoming project All the Bright Places. This morning, producers have announced that Fanning will team with Youth in Revolt director Miguel Arteta for the pic, an adaptation of Jennifer Niven’s novel.
Fanning has been attached to the lead role of Violet since last year. Niven herself is penning the script for the adaptation, which is a priority for financiers Demarest Media and Mazur/Kaplan.
“Violet and Finch’s achingly heartfelt and authentic story is the most convincing portrayal of teenage life I have ever come across. It’s such a privilege to bring it to the screen with the help of its engaging author and the »

nspired by console, computer, or arcade games, movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Wreck It Ralph, and the Resident Evil franchise take us into the often unrealistic world of gaming, where double-sided axes are as popular as iPhones, dinosaurs are totally real, and Michael Cera is an action hero.
This weekend, two other very unlikely heroes, Adam Sandler and Kevin James, militarize their pinball wizard skills for some interplanetary combat in Pixels. Along for the ride are “Game of Thrones”’ Peter Dinklage, Josh Gad (Frozen), and Michelle Monaghan (“True Detective”).
To celebrate Pixels (and all things pixel-related), we threw together a supercut of some of favourite video game movies. Watch the video below, and you’ll gain 43Xp, 87Hp, and the irresistible urge to run straight home and kill some Resident Evil zombies.

The caped crusader’s crime-fighting partner returns to the big screen for the first time since 1997’s ill-fated Batman and Robin
The 27-year-old star of Superbad and Scott Pilgrim vs the World will join Will Arnett, who is returning in the role of the gruff-voiced caped crusader. Chris McKay, animation supervisor on The Lego Movie, is taking the director’s reins on the spin-off, which is based on a screenplay by Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter’s Seth Grahame-Smith.

Batman has found his sidekick: Michael Cera is set to voice Robin in the upcoming "Lego Batman" movie.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that Cera has just finalized a deal to play the plastic version of the comic character, alongside Will Arnett's titular hero. Arnett is reprising his role from 2014 hit "The Lego Movie," which is being spun off into a tale centered around his brooding Batman.
While there's no plot yet for "Lego Batman," the flick will retain much of the creative team that made the first flick so fun. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are producing the spinoff, and "Lego Movie" animation supervisor Chris McKay is directing. Screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith is penning the script.
"Lego Batman" will also be a reunion for Arnett and Cera, who starred together on "Arrested Development." That series is due for another round of episodes on Netflix sometime next year, though no »

The last time we saw Batman's crimefighting sidekick, Robin, on the big screen things didn't go well. Chris O'Donnell realised the role in two Joel Schumacher-directed Batman films in the 1990s, and it would be fair to say that he wasn't in danger of winning too many awards for his take on the character.
Michael Cera, however, we suspect may fare better. He's lending his voice to the character of Robin in the upcoming The Lego Batman Movie, which sees Will Arnett voicing Batman, as he did in The Lego Movie.

The team behind The Lego Movie’s Lego Batman spin-off (currently known, somewhat logically as Lego Batman), already have Will Arnett back as the Dark Knight. So who would you cast as his Robin? They've picked his on-screen Arrested Development nephew, of course, with Michael Cera taking on the role. Cera feels like the perfect choice for this one, and we can already imagine his Robin as a nerdy, nervy and slightly whiny take on Bruce Wayne’s ward, most likely a little sick of his boss’s arrogant style and tired of his own sidekick status. The people in charge of bringing the new film to life include Seth Grahame-Smith on script duty and Chris McKay, animation co-director/editor on Lego, directing. Franchise overlords Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are producing. Promising to cover all aspects of the character’s long history, Lego Batman will be with us on February 10, 2017.

"Trainwreck," the new Amy Schumer/Judd Apatow movie, examines the plight of one snarly woman as she exits her familiar world of sexual freedom and hangovers for a detour into serious romance. Though several eye-popping cameos and supporting performances buttress the film, Schumer's performance is the acting triumph of "Trainwreck." Without her shaky conscience and burgeoning sense of fulfillment, the movie's conventional story might feel staid. Thankfully, it's anything but. Schumer's performance marks a welcome addition to cinema's long line of strident, hilarious female protagonists. We're celebrating that lineage with a list: the 20 best female-driven comedies ever. Some are old and some are new, but all are marked by a degree of cosmopolitan fun and nerviness -- and the occasional slap from Cher. 20. "How to Marry a Millionaire" We remember Lauren Bacall as a glamor girl with a damning grimace, but let's start revising that narrative to include her chops as a comic force. »

Will Arnett proved to the be the perfect man to voice Lego Batman in The Lego Movie, and given that the upcoming Lego Batman Movie will acknowledge every iteration of the character, it makes sense that Robin would play a part. It looks like Arnett will be keeping it in the (Arrested Development) family, as Michael Cera has just signed on to play Batman's sidekick, Robin. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller... Read More »

One of the biggest surprises of last year was not only the financial success of The Lego Movie, but, on a personal note, how much I enjoyed the film on a pure entertainment level. If I had to point to my favorite thing about the film it would likely be Will Arnett taking on the film's comically moody version of Batman and with The Lego Batman Movie on the way, we know we'll be getting more where that came from. Arnett is back on board to voice the yellow-hued Caped Crusader and it appears Warner Bros. has found his Robin with Variety reporting "Arrested Development" and Superbad star Michael Cera will voice Batman's most popular sidekick. The film isn't set to open until February 10, 2017, but now that Arnett and Cera are teaming up for the project, I have to wonder if any other "Arrested Development" cast members will lend »

Will Arnett reprises his role as The Dark Knight for the film, which is set for release in 2017 and will be directed by The Lego Movie animation supervisor Chris McKay from a script by Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Linconl: Vampire Hunter).
With the news that Cera has snagged the role of Robin, his rumoured link to the Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them is now dead in the water, with the actor bowing out of talks for the film.

Holy Bluth reunion! According to THR, Michael Cera will voice Robin to Will Arnett's Batman in the upcoming Lego Batman movie, which is sure to be a fun and sexy time for him. That's Robin the superhero sidekick, not the other Robyn — you know, the singer-songwriter. It remains to be seen whether Cera will bring his usual milquetoast charm to the role, or if he'll play Robin as more Os (overtly sexual). »

It has been years since we saw Robin on screen in a Batman movie. Chris O.Donnell notoriously played the Boy Wonder in two Joel Schumacher movies, but Christopher Nolan completely sidestepped the Dark Knight.s crime-fighting sidekick. Well, Robin.s making a comeback, albeit in Lego form.
