Newswire: The Predator sequel has put Shane Black in the mood for another Monster Squad movie

16 August 2016 7:25 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Shane Black’s been hard at work watching Ridley Scott movies to prepare for his “inventive” Predator sequel, which will be set in the present day, before all those Predators made trouble for Walton Goggins and Topher Grace. Black did appear in and do some uncredited script work for the original Predator movie, so he’s been pulling from those experiences as well for the next installment in the franchise that’s gone from reboot to follow-up. And it looks like that gear change has whetted Black’s appetite for sequels to 1987 films. No, not Lethal Weapon—the writer-director tells IGN that he’d love to check in with The Monster Squad. The horror-comedy was one of Black’s first scripts, and followed a group of preteens who end up using their fictional-monsters expertise to slay some in real life, stopping along the way to learn about lycanthrope anatomy »

Meet the reason 'Vice Principals' doesn't sound like any other comedy on TV

15 August 2016 11:20 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Have you been watching Vice Principals on HBO so far? If not, you’re missing a completely deranged new comedy that is only going to get more deranged as it goes. This should not be a surprise since it’s the brainchild of Rough House Pictures, the partnership between Jody Hill, Danny McBride, and David Gordon Green, and it’s their first HBO show since Eastbound & Down went off the air. While many of the same people are working in all departments on Vice Principals, as it unfolds from week to week, it’s clear that they’re not just rehashing the same sort of thing they’ve already done, and that judging this show from its pilot is impossible, because it’s not the same show even now that it was a month ago. One of my favorite things about Vice Principals is the score, which takes some pretty big stylistic swings. »

Performer of the Week: Stranger Things' Millie Bobby Brown

13 August 2016 7:29 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Millie Bobby Brown

The Show | Stranger Things

The Episode | “Chapter Eight: The Upside Down”

The Performance | Though critics — including us — have quite rightly raved about Winona Ryder’s star turn in Netflix’s retro drama, c’mon. The show was really all about those awesome kids. And, in the final Season 1 episode, Brown totally stole that show.

First, as Mike (the also-excellent Finn Wolfhard) struggled to explain to Eleven the difference between a sister and a Snow Ball date, the 12-year-old adorably — and with very little dialogue — conveyed the confusion of a girl who has no frame of reference for either concept. »

Stream this in the summer (and before the final season begins): 'Rectify'

1 August 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In my early days on the beat, NBC had an ad campaign encouraging people to watch summer reruns, promising, "If you haven't seen it, it's new to you!" In the age of Peak TV, that slogan seems less cynical than accurate. The rise of streaming services has put the bulk of TV history only a click or two away, which means that people are constantly discovering The Wire, or Arrested Development, or Terriers (sigh) for the very first time. In lieu of a summer rewind this year, I wanted to offer up primers of shows you can stream, whether an older series available in full(*) or something current you can catch up on before its next season begins. So far, I've done a pair of current shows in  Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Halt and Catch Fire, plus completed shows in United States of Tara and Flight of the Conchords. (*) Note: with these picks, »

‘Vice Principals’ Cast and Producers Defend the Show’s Depiction of White Guys Taking Down an African-American Woman

30 July 2016 3:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

HBO’s “Vice Principals” caught some critics by surprise for what seemed to be a tone-deaf depiction of two middle-aged white men taking on their superior: An African-American woman.

At HBO’s portion of the Television Critics Association press tour on Saturday, the show’s cast and producers were asked to explain the storyline, which seems all the more out of place right now as Americans grapple with issues of race relations.

In the second episode of “Vice Principals,” the characters played by Danny McBride and Walton Goggins – angry that they were passed over for the job of Principal at their high school – set fire to the house of the woman (played by Kimberly Hebert Gregory) who wound up with the job.

‘Homeland’ Director Lesli Linka Glatter is Fearless (Emmy Video)

25 July 2016 3:01 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It isn’t news when Lesli Linka Glatter earns another Emmy nomination for directing “Homeland” (Showtime) — this time, she’s gotten two, as well as sharing Best Drama with showrunners Alex Ganza and Howard Gordon and the other executive producers.

From the start, Glatter has deployed the rigorous discipline she learned from being a modern dance choreographer to meticulously preparing everything she does, from storyboards to character analysis.

After her AFI women’s directing program short was nominated for an Oscar in 1985, Steven Spielberg hired her to direct an episode of “Amazing Stories,” a huge-scale World War II battle sequence with soldiers storming a beach and 150 extras. Then there was nothing she couldn’t do. While she went on to direct the 1995 teen classic “Now and Then,” she has found more nourishment from television than movies.

TV Review: Vice Principals "A Trusty Steed"

25 July 2016 12:54 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Russell (Walton Goggins) and Gamby (Danny McBride) are coordinated right from the get-go.  Unfortunately, looking through Dr. Brown’s (Kimberly Hebert Gregory) past reveals that she has no fear of firing everyone in the office and starting from scratch. Dr. Brown doesn’t sugarcoat it, she comes out in this episode just as vengeful as that brief glimpse we received in the first episode.  Dayshawn (Sheaun McKinney) seeing Russell and Gamby come out of the forest after their conspiring was priceless. A simple response from a man who was just having a smoke break and stumbled on what appears to be secret love.

Gamby’s debt is clearly going to become a bigger issue as the series continues on. Hopefully, that will not become too much drama for this half hour comedy. But, the firing scene with an employee that will not be named hinted that the show may go »

Vice Principals Premiere Review: “The Principal” Must Go

17 July 2016 8:01 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Welcome to Vice Principals reviews! Even though co-creator Danny McBride said there will only be 18 episodes, as he wants to tell a complete story (and no more or less), that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the ride together. So far this show is fun, and I’m really excited to see what’s to come. This week on Vice Principals: The current Principal of North Jackson High School (Guest Star Bill Murray) is stepping down to take care of his ailing wife, so the two sitting Vice Principals Neal Gamby (Danny McBride, Eastbound and Down) and Lee Russell (Walton GogginsJustified) both expect to receive the

Vice Principals Season 1 Review

17 July 2016 6:23 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Six episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

It doesn’t take long for HBO’s half-hour comedy Vice Principals to display its true colors. Within the first five minutes of the series, from star Danny McBride and exec-producer Jody Hill (the team behind Eastbound and Down), oafish and authoritarian high school v.p. Neal Gamby (McBride) is cussing out students, getting into slapping matches with fellow vice-principal – and long-time rival in the ever-brewing competition for a promotion to the big chair – Lee Russell (Walton Goggins), and leering at a female co-worker after shutting down her attempt to defend the bullied student he’d happily send back out into the halls without any semblance of safety.

As the show goes on, the more nuanced aspects of Gamby’s character come out. He’s divorced, deeply unhappy, and desperate to assert some measure of authority to maintain a sliver of self-respect in »

‘Vice Principals’ Review Roundup: Critics Give Danny McBride’s New HBO a Passing Grade, but It Doesn’t Make Honor Roll

17 July 2016 1:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Danny McBride has made his HBO return in “Vice Principals,” but the reviews haven’t exactly been triumphant so far. Indiewire’s Ben Travers begins his by noting that anyone enamored of “Eastbound & Down” (which was likewise co-created by McBride and Jody Hill) “will be pleased if not ecstatic” with the new comedy co-starring Walton Goggins, though he himself is “on the fence” after six episodes.

Most others are similarly lukewarm. One exception is the A.V. Club‘s Danette Chavez, who gives the show an A- and writes that, “while the profanity reliably reaches virtuosic levels, it rarely does so at the cost of more meaningful discussion. What Hill and McBride end up with, after the LSD-laced shenanigans, is as much a meditation on disillusionment with life as it is a clash of would-be titans. »

Danny McBride Talks HBO’s ‘Vice Principals,’ Bill Murray, and Telling a Complete Story

17 July 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s new comedy series “Vice Principals” is a strange beast. Created by the “Eastbound and Down” team of director Jody Hill and star Danny McBride, the 18-episode series explores the uncomfortable alliance between two rival vice principals (McBride and “Justified” veteran Walton Goggins) as they team up to take down the school’s new principal (Kimberly Hebert Gregory).

The cabler launches the first batch of nine episodes on July 17, following the second season premiere of Dwayne Johnson’s “Ballers,” and we’ll presumably see the next nine in 2017. And then that’s it. End of story. It’s a model more common to limited series, or certain British shows (“The Office” comes to mind), and all but unheard of in U.S. television.

Variety spoke with McBride about the unusual format of the show, his standout co-stars (including a Bill Murray cameo in the premiere episode), and making his directorial debut.

Review: ‘Vice Principals’ Charms With A-Grade Class Clowns, But This ‘VP’ Is No ‘Veep’

16 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

First things first: Any fan of “Eastbound & Down” — the last effort from co-creators Jody Hill and Danny McBride — will be pleased if not ecstatic with “Vice Principals.” The comedies are built around similar sensibilities: A power hungry man with an over-inflated ego struggles to fit in with his surroundings as he adjusts to a diminished position at a small-town school.

In “Eastbound & Down,” McBride played a professional baseball player forced out of the league and into a job teaching physical education to high schoolers. Here, he’s a vice principal at war with his fellow VP when the top seat opens up.

You should be able to predict where things go from there — somewhat. “Vice Principals” comes with a few significant surprises. One instrumental choice comes at the end of the first episode, while the rest are of a very specific variety: bein’ nasty. And while the results are often wickedly funny, »

TV Review: Vice Principals "The Principal"

15 July 2016 4:02 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

We begin with Bill Murray as Principal Wells of Lincoln High. His wife is dying of cancer and he’s leaving his position. And, within their first moments onscreen, Neal Gamby (Danny McBride) and Lee Russell (Walton Goggins) are vying for the job. Cursing, bickering, and fighting like children right behind the their authority figure's back. Murray does a great job of playing the background in his scenes with the pair. It’s easy to expect him to come out swinging but this is McBride’s show and that is clear every second of the first episode.

Danny McBride plays off children like a distinguished gentleman smokes a pipe; effortlessly. That confidence and razor sharp tongue mix very well with a cascading sea of young faces. Watching Gamby after getting hit in the face breaking up a fight is hysterical.  Gamby is the Vice Principal in charge of discipline at Lincoln High. »

TV Review: ‘Vice Principals’

15 July 2016 2:51 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The plot of “Vice Principals” is that two particular vice-principals in a suburban Southern high school would both like to be promoted to principal. But since there can only be one, they are enmeshed in bitter rivalry. Until, of course, their boss is replaced with an outsider. Faced with a common enemy, the buffoonish vice-principals decide to join forces in an attempt to discredit the new principal until one of them can take the job.

If you were to ask Neal Gamby (Danny McBride) and Lee Russell (Walton Goggins) if their sudden alliance had anything to do with the fact that their new boss is a black woman (Kimberly Hérbert Gregory), they would, in all likelihood, strenuously object. Not because Neal and Lee are so opposed to being racists, really — but instead because they just haven’t thought about their strident hatred for her that much. These are two pathetic men whose entire existence is driven by »
