The Lego Batman Movie: Chris McKay Touches Base On Bats, The Joker And Tongue-In-Cheek Humor

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Brick by brick, Warner Bros. is quietly constructing its universe of animated Lego movies. It’s a vision that can be traced back to the barnstorming success of Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s surprise hit, which amassed an eye-watering $469 million back in 2014.

That’s teed up a Ninjago spinoff and bona fide sequel to be released across 2017 and 2018, respectively, but not before Will Arnett’s irreverent Caped Crusader gets his time in the spotlight with February’s The Lego Batman Movie.

Hailing from Chris McKay, who served as animation supervisor on The Lego Movie two years ago, the director spoke with Empire recently regarding the upcoming offshoot, where he promised fans that Arnett’s solo outing will fully embrace the outlandish nature of the World’s Greatest Detective: “Just the idea of Batman is absurd. A guy who learns karate and dresses up at night to beat people up is ridiculous, »

Seth Rogen's Astronaut Comedy Loses Its Release Date

20 August 2016 10:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you've been dying to see Seth Rogen, Bill Hader and Zach Galifianakis floating around space in astronaut costumes, you may be a little disappointed at this next bit of news. It's being reported today that Universal has pulled The Something's release date. The movie was set to star the hilarious trio, and was scheduled to launch this coming Memorial Day weekend, setting the stage for the 2017 summer movie season. Now, the R-rated Sci-fi space comedy has been completely pulled from the schedule.

Seth Rogen was the first to announce that the movie was in trouble, while appearing on the Howard Stern show last week to promote his new animated comedy Sausage Party. But at the time, Universal hadn't officially yanked it off their upcoming slate. Sony Pictures knew the move was happened, and has since given their space alien thriller Life this prime release date real estate. Life »

It looks like fans may not be able to see the Seth Rogen, Bill Hader and Zach Galifianakis-starring space comedy that the trio had in the works at Universal. New reports indicate that the R-rated untitled astronaut film, which was originally scheduled for a May 26, 2017 release, has been removed from the calendar and is currently undated.

The comedy was centered on a group of male astronauts who are stuck in space for several years before they come upon another ship.

Silverman is attached as writer and executive producer. Andrew Singer of Broadway Video is also executive producing along with the husband-wife team of Krisel and Danica Radovanov. Krisel will also direct should the script be picked up to pilot.

12 August 2016 6:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Life, as the Jurassic Park genius Ian Malcolm once said, tends to find a way. Perhaps encouraged by the star-studded ensemble at hand, Sony Pictures has opted to ship Daniel Espinosa’s new sci-fi movie to a much more competitive release window – Memorial Day weekend.

Once on course to enter Earth’s orbit on March 24, 2017, Deadline reports that Espinosa’s space thriller will now open opposite long-awaited sequel Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on May 26. There’s also Universal’s genre comedy – rumored to be titled The Something – to contend with, which orders Zach Galifianakis, Bill Hader and Seth Rogen into the inky blackness of space.

But Sony is clearly confident it’s on to a winner – and with Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Rebecca Ferguson set to star, can you really blame them? Pitched as Alien meets Ten Little Indians, the script for Life hails »

Supporting Actor Emmy Nominations Offer Breakthroughs for New and Longtime Roles

9 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Every year there’s talk about the need for new blood. But this was the year Emmy voters did something about it, and there were several notable breakthroughs in the supporting race. Riding the “Game of Thrones” wave, Maisie Williams and Kit Harington scored their first noms after six seasons. Meanwhile Matt Walsh was recognized in season five, and Maura Tierney and Judith Light landed noms in their sophomore seasons. Louie Anderson and Constance Zimmer were nominated for the first time for new roles, in shows that — compared to “Game of Thrones” — had pretty low profiles.

After winning a Golden Globe in January for “The Affair,” in which she plays a woman divorcing her cheating husband, Tierney was a welcome Emmy breakthrough this year. She was last Emmy-nominated back in 2001 for “ER.” She says she’s “just thrilled to still be around,” and notes that this time, the nod feels different. “ ‘ER »

Indie Spotlight: Indian Series ‘Casting Couch With Amey & Nipun’ Takes Cues From Galifianakis

5 August 2016 5:34 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

The web series format has become an international phenomenon, and one country where it has taken hold is India. No series better exemplifies the influence American shows have on South Asian creators than Casting Couch With Amey & Nipun, a dry comedy that plays out like a semi-scripted version of the Zach Galifianakis web series Between Two Ferns.

The stars of Casting Couch are Amey Wagh and Nipun Dharmadhikari, a pair of actors who portray fictionalized versions of themselves. The premise for the show is simple: Wagh and Dharmadhikari bring in Indian celebrities to audition for a film, but the celebrities believe the proceedings to be a mere interview. What follows is Between Two Ferns-style awkwardness, with plenty of deadpan jokes aimed at all present characters.

Here’s the first episode, which features Bollywood actress Radhika Apte. Casting Couch is in Hindi with English subtitles:
