Coming Soon: 'Lost: Hurley's Star Wars Script'

20 May 2016 11:02 PM, PDT | AirlockAlpha.com | See recent Airlock Alpha news »

I have a big announcement I want to share, and I've been so excited about it, I don't know how I've kept the lid on it for this long.But I have planned a huge crowdfunding campaign, beginning tomorrow, for "Lost: Hurley's Star Wars Script."If you remember back in Season 5 of "Lost," one of my favorite characters of the show, Hurley (played by Jorge Garcia) was thrown back into the 1970s with some of his other island castaways. And while there, he was actually trying to write a better Star Wars script than what Lucas would eventually do working to make some corrections to the film that fans have always had issues with.J.J. Abrams and his creative team didn't really spend a lot of time on that small story element, but I am in "Hurley's Star Wars Script." There I will take on the role of Hurley, »

VOD Vault #3 – Get a Job / Blood Rush

10 April 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Welcome to week three of VOD Vault, where we take a look at another bunch of direct-to-market releases, many of which hit iTunes and the supermarket shelves without fanfare, walking you – our readers – down the fine line between spending your money wisely, or throwing it away on another slice of Dtv dross. Up this week are two films on the opposite end of the cinematic spectrum: Get a Job, a long-delayed rom-com starring Anna Kendrick and Miles Teller; and claustrophobic horror Blood Rush.

Get A Job

Stars: Anna Kendrick, Alison Brie, Miles Teller, Bryan Cranston, Cameron Richardson, Greg Germann, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Marcia Gay Harden, Nicholas Braun, John C. McGinley, Jorge Garcia, John Cho, Bruce Davidson | Directed by Dylan Kidd

Life after college graduation is not exactly going as planned for Will (Teller) and Jillian (Kendrick) who find themselves lost in a sea of increasingly strange jobs, perpetual unemployment and adulthood angst. »

Hawaii Five-0: Friday Night Series Renewed for Season Seven

25 March 2016 5:26 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

When Hawaii Five-0 was moved to Friday nights after three seasons on Monday evenings, many expected the cop drama to be cancelled. The TV show's continued to do pretty well though and now, it's been renewed for a seventh season by CBS.

A reimagining of the original Hawaii Five-0 TV show, this police procedural series revolves around an elite state police task force that fights crime in the 50th state. The series stars Alex O'Loughlin, Scott Caan, Daniel Dae Kim, Grace Park, Masi Oka, Jorge Garcia, and Chi McBride.

Film Review: ‘Get a Job’

25 March 2016 4:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hectic but unfunny, “Get a Job” has had a difficult history: It was shot four years ago but sat on the shelf, presumably due to big changes at CBS Films. That means its satire of employment-world anxiety is already somewhat dated, though on the plus side, its various cast members (including then-little-known lead Miles Teller) have since seen their marquee value strengthen. Not much of that will matter, however, as the pic’s strenuously misfired mix of broadly treated social issues and uninspired comedic raunch is being kick-dropped with little fanfare into VOD platforms and scattered theatrical gigs by Lionsgate Premiere. The roll call of familiar on-screen talents should make this a decent home-format seller, though it’s nobody’s finest hour.

The first produced screenplay by Kyle Pennekamp and Scott Turpel may well have seemed bright and busy on paper, but the end result looks all too much like »

Miles Teller shines in the long delayed comedy “Get a Job”

21 March 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For literally years now, I’d been looking forward to seeing Get a Job, the new (or newish, in this case now) film from Dylan Kidd. Last week, after an incredibly long delay/time spent sitting on the shelf, I finally saw the flick, which will be hitting theaters this Friday. I’m thrilled to report that it’s good stuff too, fully underserving of the fate it had been stuck with up until now. Honestly, even if it were terrible, I still don’t understand why it never was released. Director Dylan Kidd was a promising up and coming indie filmmaker, leading man Miles Teller has become a bigger and bigger star, and the supporting cast has the likes of Allison Brie, Bryan Cranston, and especially Anna Kendrick in it. That sounds more like a big time studio comedy than an ignored indie, right? Throw in how timely a »

Get A Job Releases New Images

2 March 2016 5:37 PM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Get a Job hits on March 25th, and Lionsgate has released some new images. They don’t exactly offer a lot of surprises that the trailer (see below) hid, but we do get a nice group selfie shot… and learn that Miles Teller‘s character works in some manner of booth.

The premise of the film is, eventually, an interesting one, but you have to guess that the film doesn’t take as long to get there as the trailer suggests.

While the post-graduation angst film isn’t entirely new, and is in fact possibly overworked as practically a mantra of the new generation, the role reversal angle and relationship focal point should make this one interesting. It certainly has a cast that you expect good things from. Well, some of the cast anyway.

The movie kicks off with Will (Teller) needing to get his act together in a pretty serious way, »

Miles Teller & Anna Kendrick in Official Trailer for Comedy 'Get a Job'

5 February 2016 5:20 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I'm 22 years old and I have no idea what I'm going to do with the rest of my life! And I'm fine with that." CBS Films has debuted the theatrical trailer for the comedy Get a Job, starring Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick as a couple struggling with life after college. Right as one of them might finally have snagged a good job, the other one gets fired, and it makes for good humor and good lessons to be learned. The full cast includes some other big names like Bryan Cranston, Marcia Gay Harden, Alison Brie, Ravi Patel, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jorge Garcia, John C. McGinley and John Cho. Not the best looking comedy out there, but it does have good laughs. I'm always glad to see Anna Kendrick in a lead role, too. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Dylan Kidd's Get a Job, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube: Life »

21 Possible Explanations as to Why The Ridiculous 6 Is Netflix's Most Streamed Movie

8 January 2016 9:40 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Netflix announced earlier this week that Adam Sandler's widely maligned Western "parody/comedy" (terms used in their loosest sense) The Ridiculous 6 - a film so lazily racist multiple Native Americans walked off the set while filming and so terrible that it has a zero percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes - is currently its most streamed film. This is … entirely unacceptable, and in a Herculean effort to wrap our brains around why, precisely, this must be, we've brainstormed a list of reasons that could possibly explain it. 1.

Ricky Gervais vs. Hollywood: His Most F--ked-Up Golden Globes Jokes

7 January 2016 11:10 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

During his three-year stint as Golden Globes host from 2010-2012, Ricky Gervais earned a reputation for being politically incorrect and aggressive with his humor. Oh, how he treasured that edgy badge of dishonor: "I guarantee they will not invite me back," the comedian predicted after his last gig. Now that Gervais returns this Sunday, plenty of people are wagering how he'll bite the hand that feeds him. But other than an obsession with his penis (and others), his off-color "offensive" humor can now seem rather quaint.

As the 54-year-old British writer-producer told The Hollywood Reporter, »

Adam Sandler’s The Ridiculous 6 is the most watched movie in Netflix history

7 January 2016 6:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He may not be popular with everyone, but there’s no arguing Adam Sandler doesn’t have an audience. Even with the box office disappointment of Pixels and critical bombs like That’s My Boy and Grown Ups 2, it’s been revealed that his latest film The Ridiculous 6 is the most watched movie in Netflix history.

The Ridiculous 6, by way of example, in the first 30 days on Netflix it’s been the most-watched movie in the history of Netflix,” the streaming service’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos told press at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show. “It’s also enjoyed a spot at No 1 in every territory we operate in, and in many of them it’s still No 1.”

The Ridiculous 6 is the first of four Adam Sandler movies that will be made exclusively for Netflix, and was in the press early in its production »
