After teasing the upcoming Wet Hot American Summer reboot with a goofy, VHS-tinted teaser, Netflix has offered an official trailer with a hilarious, enticing look at the star-studded prequel series, First Day of Camp.
The clip begins with talk of blossoming summer love and fun, as well as an uncomfortable Camp Firewood meeting that's literally crashed by Paul Rudd's surly, too-cool counselor Andy. When chastised for being a week late, Andy replies: "Whatever. It smells weird. Who beefed?" (Notably, the counselor supervisor is played by H. Jon Benjamin, and with any luck, »
They're younger. They're hotter. They're wetter. They're more ... uh, American-er? Whatever, there's more of everything in the first full trailer for "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp," Netflix's prequel series to the 2001 cult comedy fave.
The teaser was VHS-styled fun, but this trailer is packed with actual footage from the series. It's also packed with a ton of stars - like, seriously, if you're a Hollywood actor and not in this show, you're probably experiencing major Fomo. The trailer even winks at the crazy "who's who" of their cast list, as the names keep rolling by - "also Kristen Wiig," "and also" Michael Cera, "plus" Josh Charles, "featuring" Chris Pine, and "introducing" Jon Hamm.
There's not much plot set-up. The trailer begins with the head counselors briefing the other counselors on the rules, but getting interrupted by Paul Rudd's arrival on a motorcycle. There are also glimpses at various camp relationships, »

Ezra Miller, who is set to play The Flash in Justice League Part 1 and Justice League Part 2, is in early talks to join another one of Warner Bros.' major franchises, the Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Alison Sudol is the favorite to play Tina's younger sister, 'Queenie', while comic actors Josh Gad »

As anyone who reads this site probably knows, there's something infectious about seeing one's love of film. It's a little hard to explain, but simply watching one talking affectionately about how various strips of celluloid affected them over the years is a fantastic way to get the blood flowing and your fingers itching to type in Netflix in the next browser tab. So if you haven't already, I highly recommend you check out the Criterion Collection's closet visit series. Whether it's Robert Downey Sr. reminiscing about past conversations with Jack Nicholson, Rudy Wurlitzer and Robert Downey Jr. while looking at copies of Two-Lane Blacktop and Easy Rider, Guillermo Del Toro gushing over their various Blu-Rays, Nicolas Winding Refn getting his day made with a copy of William Cameron Menzies' Things to Come or Bill Hader deep admiration of Nobuhiko Obayashi's House, each of these videos are fun little »

At the moment, Michael Cera is in London kicking off a UK tour as part of Alden Penner's band, but before he went abroad to exercise his musical chops, the actor stopped by The Criterion Collection, dipped into its archives, and came up with some surprising selections. Read More: Review: 'Magic Magic' Starring Michael Cera, Juno Temple & Emily Browning The actor showed off his arthouse knowledge, selecting Yasujiro Ozu's "Good Morning," Abbas Kiarostami's "Close-Up," along with the Eclipse set "The Actuality Dramas Of Allan King" (the color design which Cera hilariously notes matches his shirt). But for his final pick, Cera opts for Sydney Pollack's classic "Tootsie." The actor has some pretty nice insights on all the titles, and it's worth spending a quick five minutes to check out the movies you might not expect Cera to champion. Watch below. »

I'm not sure I see the point to The Tribe. Writer/director Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy's story begins with Sergey (Grigoriy Fesenko), a young teen entering his first day at a boarding school for the deaf. He immediately falls into a crowd of hooligans dealing in drugs and prostituting out two of the school's young girls only to devolve into... whatc I really don't know. Utilizing no spoken dialogue, the film sticks 100% to the use of sign language without subtitles and it's a gimmick that only proves cinematically intriguing for the first few minutes, after that we're left looking for a reason, trying to decipher the character's hand gestures, attempting to make sense of the story enough to look for any sort of deeper meaning. Is it saying something about languagec Perhaps it's saying something about how we take such things as hearing for grantedc Are Ukrainian boarding schools for the »

Director: Sebastian Silva.
Running Time: 100 minutes
Synopsis: A male couple (Sebastian Silva/Adebimpe) and their female friend (Wiig) decide to have a baby together while one of the men works on an art project in which he acts like a baby.
Sebastian Silva made a few waves with his excellent second feature The Maid back in 2009. Since then he has travelled down a quirky path of very different and unique films, including his last effort, the 2013 misfire Magic Magic which starred Michael Cera, Juno Temple, and Emily Browning. Nasty Baby could be described as a return to form, but it is also a very peculiar feature that completely switches itself around in terms of tone and focus within the final third.
Lack of confidence is something Silva can never be accused of suffering from, »

Here is something a bit different for Rope of Silicon. Sure, we have award predictions for the Academy Awards and the Golden Globes, but that makes sense, considering this is site is 95% about movies. But there are plenty of other stories out there being told in theaters that get plenty of respect. Except these are stories performed live right in front of your face. So, I took it upon myself to comb through the absurd amount of categories of the Tony Awards, which is this Sunday June 7, to give you my predictions on what will win. I am doing this not just because it is fun to predict things and hope I get them all right, though that is certainly part of it, but I also want to shed light on these projects that a lot of people don't know about. Film and television people often have on blinders when »

Taste the happy, Netflix subscribers – producer Brian Grazer confirmed on the Adam Carolla Show podcast this week that Arrested Development will begin production on new episodes for the streaming giant sometime next year.
“Netflix is determined to do more epsiodes, so we’re going to do more episodes,” Grazer told Carolla, noting that everything is only just falling into place for a fifth season of the beloved cult comedy, which was famously revived for an online fourth season seven years after Fox originally pulled the plug. Reviews were mixed-to-positive on Netflix’s continuation, and the series was such a reputation-booster for Netflix that it makes sense that the company would want to double down on more Bluth misadventures.
Production will start early next year, Grazer said, and fans can expect to see new episodes “four months after that,” so in the late spring or early summer of 2016. Grazer told Caolla »
