Romance, crime, and ideas about time and interconnectedness, "The Driftless Area" stars Anton Yelchin and Zooey Deschanel in this unique story about a young man, caught up in extraordinary circumstances.

A few thoughts on tonight's New Girl double feature coming up just as soon as I tell Alfonso Cuaron he's lost his lead otter... Knowing that both episodes would air on the same night, the show played with its format in interesting ways with this bachelor/bachelorette party idea, not only splitting the cast by gender, but devoting one episode to each party, so that Jess and Cece barely appear in "Road Trip," while the guys are only slightly more prominent in "A Chill Day In." It basically functioned as a small-scale version of the Arrested Development Netflix season, down to having Jess's texts to Winston in the first episode make much more sense after getting her side of the story in the second. Given that Jess/Cece has never been one of the show's best comic pairings (both of them are usually much funnier interacting with the guys), I »

The film and music world is in mourning once again after another legend has died far too soon. We reported the tragic news earlier today that Prince has passed away at his Paisley Park estate in Minnesota, at the age of 57. While no details have been given regarding the cause of death, tributes have already started flooding in through social media as the news broke.
Initial reports revealed that Prince's body was discovered at his Paisley Park compound in the a.m. hours. TMZ obtained audio of the 911 dispatch call, where an unidentified caller said there was a "male down, not breathing." The singer had recently cancelled two concert dates due to health issues, and his representatives said he had been battling the flu, when his private jet made an emergency landing in Illinois on Friday, April 15. An exact cause of death hasn't been released yet, but we'll be »
“The Walking Dead’s” Sonequa Martin-Green pulls a gruesome prank on the “New Girl” cast in an exclusive clip from one of tonight’s back-to-back episodes obtained by TheWrap. Martin-Green plays Rhonda, the new girlfriend of notoriously bad prankster Winston (Lamorne Morris). She bursts into the bar with a fake knife in her arm, spurting blood, and screaming that a maniac is after her. Totally classic joke, right? In an exclusive clip from the second episode, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) must deal with the aftermath of a sex dream she had about Nick (Jake Johnson). In order to her ex-boyfriend from her mind, »

In the grand scheme of weird film adaptations of old toy lines, DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming Trolls movie is pretty far up the list. All the same, new casting announcements for the family-friendly movie build up a promising ensemble: Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Christine Baranski, Quvenzhané Wallis, and John Cleese have all been added to the voice cast of the film.
The new additions join recently-announced stars Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake in the new movie, along with comedic actor Kunal Nayyar and late-night host James Corden. Understandably, co-directors Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn are pretty happy with the cast that’s beginning to shape up for Trolls:

Jess, Nick, Schmidt, Winston, and CeCe will stick together for another year: Fox announced on Tuesday that it has renewed "New Girl" for a sixth season.
Though ratings have been down this year for the sitcom, it's still the network's most-watched series on Tuesday nights, anchoring a comedy block that also includes "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (which was also picked up for another season) and freshmen series "The Grinder" and "Grandfathered." (No word yet on the fate of those latter two shows.)
"Every network comedy should aspire to what [creator] Liz Meriwether is achieving in 'New Girl,' with its bravura dialogue, inventive and witty performances by the talented cast, and emotionally engaging storytelling," said Fox president David Madden in a statement. "The series is as creatively strong today as it ever was, we want to congratulate 'New Girl' on reaching its milestone 100th episode, and we can't wait for »

Fox has renewed “New Girl” for a sixth season, the network announced Tuesday.
The series, starring Zooey Deschanel, becomes the sixth current Fox comedy picked up for the 2016-17 season, joining “Bob’s Burgers,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “The Last Man on Earth,” “Family Guy” and “The Simpsons.” Currently Fox’s longest running live-action comedy, “New Girl” aired its 100th episode in March.
“Every network comedy should aspire to what Liz Meriwether is achieving in ‘New Girl,’ with its bravura dialogue, inventive and witty performances by the talented cast and emotionally engaging storytelling,” said Fox Broadcasting entertainment president David Madden. “The series is as creatively strong today as it ever was, we want to congratulate ‘New Girl’ on reaching its milestone 100th episode, and we can’t wait for the next subversive and hilarious chapter of these characters’ lives.”
This season in Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates, “New Girl” is averaging a »

New Girl no longer: Fox announced today that its sitcom about the world's most dysfunctional roommates has been renewed for a sixth season. That means Jess (Zooey Deschanel), Nick (Jake Johnson), Winston (Lamorne Morris) and the about-to-be-married Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone) are returning for another year of cohabitating.

Fox is making itself really comfortable in the New Girl loft this spring.
TVLine has learned that the Zooey Deschanel comedy will begin airing two new episodes on Tuesday nights, beginning April 19 and concluding with the May 10 season finale.
According to a Fox rep, the double-pumps are purely out of necessity, since New Girl‘s fifth season runs a full 22 episodes but didn’t premiere until January.
All told, New Girl‘s final run of installments will go like this: The April 19 episodes will air back-to-back from 8 to 9 pm. »
After several early renewals on the drama side, Fox has picked up two of its comedy series for next season — The Last Man On Earth for Season 3 and Brooklyn Nine-Nine for Season 4. Surprisingly not on the list is Fox’s flagship comedy series New Girl, now in its fifth season. A few things are still being worked out but the show staring Zooey Deschanel is fully expected to come back and will likely get a pickup between now and May. Also not present among the early comedy… »
At last, “New Girl” viewers are meeting Schmidt’s long-absent dad.
In Variety‘s exclusive preview of Tuesday’s episode “D-Day,” Jess (Zooey Deschanel) finds herself in a spot of mischief at Gavin’s vineyard after agreeing to help Schmidt with wedding preparations. And judging by the unexpected chemistry between the pair, we can see where Schmidt got his confidence with the ladies.
“New Girl’s” inspired casting choice for the character of Gavin also tips its hat to another Fox hit, Josh Schwartz’s teen drama “The Oc,” which previously linked Gallagher and Greenfield. In a 2007 episode, Greenfield portrayed a younger version of Gallagher’s Sandy Cohen, the morals-driven guardian of Ben McKenzie’s Ryan Atwood.

One presumes that veteran director Barry Levinson envisaged this Mitch Glazer-scripted comedy about a has-been rock promoter working his shtick in Kabul as Good Morning Afghanistan, although the phrase “Good Night, Vienna” better describes its reception in America, where it tanked spectacularly last year. No wonder: it’s a dog’s dinner of a movie which not even the usually reliable Bill Murray can raise above the level of confused, cliched claptrap. Murray plays Richie Lanz, who comes to Kabul on the promise of rich pickings, and winds up attempting to help Leem Lubany’s Pashtun prodigy Salima defy death threats by singing on national TV.

In the roving, restlessly imaginative films of Arnaud Desplechin, everything is in flux and nothing is nailed down. Like Greek gods and goddesses fallen to earth, his characters rant and storm, banter and cajole, turn on each other one moment and fall into an embrace the next. His freewheeling visual style, often predicated on iris shots, zoom lenses and disjunctive editing techniques, turns clutter into clarity as it follows the tempestuous logic of his characters’ emotions. Even his titles can’t always make up their minds: “My Sex Life … or How I Got Into an Argument,” the name of his sprawling 1993 magnum opus about an incurable and incorrigible lover of women named Paul Dedalus (played by Mathieu Amalric), captures the character’s chronic logorrhea as well as his maddening indecision.
While Desplechin has worked with Amalric in several films since — “Kings and Queen” (2004), “A Christmas Tale” (2008) and the English-language psychotherapy »
