The movie was an arthouse and cult favorite, proving that American moviemakers didn’t have the sole domain […]

“The Light Between Oceans,” September 2
Derek Cianfrance’s sweet spot is relationship dramas that don’t balk at showing just how damn hard it can be to love someone and to sustain that love (hi, “Blue Valentine”), and with his big screen adaptation of the bestselling novel of the same name, he takes those interests and skills right to a post-World War I landscape tailormade for a sweeping, »

A reunion with Klown director Mikkel Nørgaard, Klown Forever sees the series, best described as Curb Your Enthusiasm as directed by Lars von Trier, reach ingenious new heights. And it stoops to gut-wrenchingly hilarious lows. »
Danish comics Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam struck comic gold with Klown, a sort of running commentary of every negative impulse of maleness laid bare to hilarious results over the span of a six series television series and pair of hit films. And with that second film - Klown Forever - poised to hit Us screens and VOD on September 2nd a brand new trailer has arrived to demonstrate just exactly what that means. Klown Forever follows estranged best friends Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam as they travel to the States seeking fame, fortune and friendship, only to immediately dive head-first into an impressive array of wildly inappropriate misadventures and unforgettably mortifying social situations. When Casper attempts to break into Hollywood, Frank follows him to...

It’s hard to believe it’s already been over a half-a-decade since the Danish dark comedy Klown was first released. After enjoying a festival run and release here — in which it rightfully earned acclaim for its Curb Your Enthusiasm-esque awkwardness and depravity — the duo have returned. Klown Forever, a follow-up from the original team of director Mikkel Nørgaard and writers / stars Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen, will be released this fall and the U.S. trailer has now landed.
As we said in our review, “Those familiar with the off-kilter comedic duo behind the Danish TV series Klown (or Klovn as it is known in Denmark) — which spurned one of the most hilarious and inappropriate feature films of recent years — will know exactly what type of humor to expect from their sequel Klovn Forever. Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen star essentially as parodies of themselves in this Curb Your Enthusiasm-style comedy, »

In 2010, Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen took their long-running Danish comedy “Klown” and brought it to the big screen with director Mikkel Nørgaard. Similar to Larry David’s successful HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Klown starred the duo as fictionalized versions of themselves and centered around their increasingly awkward shenanigans and encounters within the Danish entertainment scene (Hvam played a former popular comic and Christensen was his best friend).

Having paraded all the worst male impulses across the screen over the span of Klown's six season run of hit television and pair of feature films, starring and writing duo Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen are getting back together. No, it's not more Klown, but we'll take what we can get! The duo have written and will star in Jesper Rofelt's upcoming comedy De første danske jordbær, whose title presumably has a bit more built-in meaning in the native Danish than it does to the rest of the world with the literal English translation of The First Danish Strawberries. With production slated to start in August, very little has been said about the plot so far it apparently revolves around the Jante Law, which is...
