50 Reasons You're Still Not Over (500) Days of Summer

14 August 2017 11:40 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

It's been eight years since the release of (500) Days of Summer, but time hasn't lessened our love for this movie. It's a romantic comedy without the conventional happy ending, and it made us all sit up and realize that Joseph Gordon-Levitt might be the big screen's most adorable leading man. Since it's Summer, we're looking back at the reasons we all can't get over this movie the way Tom just can't get over Summer. (Note: this is best read with "Sweet Disposition" playing.) »

‘Get Shorty’ Review: This Smart Take on Elmore Leonard Will Make You Forget All About Chili Palmer

13 August 2017 1:39 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Elmore Leonard doesn’t make adaptations easy. The many successful films and one great TV show produced from the renowned author’s work seem to indicate otherwise, but for every “Out of Sight” and “Justified,” there’s a “Killshot” and “Karen Sisco.”

Now, after a hailed novel and two feature films, “Get Shorty” becomes the latest Leonard crime story to get the series treatment, and it’s a lot closer in quality to its titular inspiration than its lesser sequel, “Be Cool.” But aside from being pretty darn good, this take goes its own way.

Anyone familiar with the 1990 book or 1995 film will certainly recognize the plot, but creator Davey Holmes’ new show isn’t doing an impression; not on any level. From the casting to the construction, this version of “Get Shorty” is its own beast. The hour-long drama may not be the next big breakout in the golden age of TV, »

Channing Tatum Goes Full ‘Magic Mike’ on a Delighted Gas-Station Employee — Watch

12 August 2017 12:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

We may not be seeing a third “Magic Mike” movie anytime soon, but at least Channing Tatum isn’t going anywhere. The actor collaborated with Steven Soderbergh once again for next week’s “Logan Lucky,” which sees the director returning to the silver screen for the first time since his retirement/sabbatical began in 2013, as well as in a new Facebook Live video sure to delight fans of the male-stripper dramedy.

The 20 Best Crime Films of the 21st Century, From ‘Memento’ to ‘Zodiac’

11 August 2017 2:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No genre illustrates the evolution of cinema better than the crime film. As recently as the ’90s, Hollywood regularly released stories of cops-and-robber showdowns and mystery-thrillers based on best-selling novels — but as the middle class continues to disappear from Hollywood films, smart crime stories moved to television (see: “The Sopranos,” “The Wire,” “Breaking Bad,” “The Night Of,” et. al.).

Outside the studios, there is a longstanding tradition – from the B-movies to the Coen brothers – of new directors showcasing their filmmaking chops with dark, stylish, and intense crime sagas. A surge of new filmmakers in the ’90s brought fresh interpretations to the genre, from the pastiche of “Reservoir Dogs” to the unnerving realism in “Boyz n the Hood.”

These days, many of the best contemporary directors — including Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Mann, the Coens, Park Chan-wook and Spike Lee – still love the genre, »

Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt Tell the Weird, Wild Story Behind ‘Comrade Detective’

9 August 2017 9:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt like to make “odd things” together.

“We’ve done lots of odd things just by following various creative whims for our own amusement. [They’re] not for audiences though; just in our spare time, for fun,” Gordon-Levitt said in an interview with IndieWire.

Tatum, sitting next to him, chuckled and nodded his head.

“I have a secret over Joe that he has to forever do the dumb things that I ask him to come and do,” Tatum said.

Fans can see one of Tatum and Gordon-Levitt’s odd, creative projects right now — “Comrade Detective,” executive produced by Tatum and featuring his voice work, alongside Gordon-Levitt, hit Amazon on Friday, August 4 — but it’s certainly not dumb.

Their latest collaboration is so clever, in fact, you need to unpack its backstory to unlock all the peculiar charms.

Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt on What Drew Them to Amazon Spoof Series ‘Comrade Detective’

4 August 2017 11:11 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and a number of Romanian actors get together to make a television show. It almost sounds like the beginning of joke, and in a way, it is. Confused? We’ll explain.

Tatum, Gordon-Levitt, and their on-screen counterparts, Florin Piersic Jr. and Corneliu Ulici, premiered their new Amazon series, “Comrade Detective,” Thursday evening at the ArcLight Cinema in Hollywood.

The series is a spoof of classic ’80s cop shows, but with a twist: it takes place in Communist Romania with an entirely Romanian cast. English overdubs are provided by Tatum, Gordon-Levitt, and an eclectic collection of other American actors, including Jenny Slate, Nick Offerman, Jason Mantzoukas, and Chloë Sevigny.

Writer and executive producer Alessandro Tanaka said the inspiration for the series came from his appreciation of 1980s films like “Red Dawn” and “Rocky IV.” “These movies that are like Hollywood entertainment, but also had this fiercely anti-Soviet propaganda angle to them,” he »

August TV Premieres: 12 New Shows To Look Out For This Month

4 August 2017 10:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Summer TV is almost over. (Didn’t it seem like just yesterday when “Twin Peaks” was right around the corner?)

As audiences begin the final push towards fall, there are still new shows worth your time. We’ve gathered some of this month’s biggest TV premieres from across network, cable and streaming to add to your personal viewing calendar.

“What Would Diplo Do?” (August 3, Viceland)

James Van Der Beek takes the role of a lifetime as Diplo, the world-famous DJ (who may or may not have spoiled West Coast viewers on the “Breaking Bad” Season 4 finale back in 2011). As Van Der Beek told IndieWire’s Liz Shannon Miller, it’s a series that fulfills a career-long dream, in a way. How well does he pull off the beanie look and channel an internationally recognized producer? We’re eager to find out.

4 August 2017 8:03 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In the vein of 1980s Cold War-era detective TV series, Comrade Detective is a gritty, action-packed and blood-soaked story that finds Romanian Detectives Gregor Anghel (played by Florin Piersic Jr. and dubbed by Channing Tatum, who is also an executive producer) and Iosef Baciu (played by Corneliu Ulici and dubbed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) investigating the murder of a fellow officer, which leads to the unraveling of a subversive plot to destroy their country.

'Comrade Detective' Premiere Thrusts Audience Back to the '80s Behind the Iron Curtain

4 August 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

With Comrade Detective, executive producers Alessandro Tanaka and Brian Gatewood have resurrected classic Cold War-era Soviet TV in the first-of-its-kind (and timely) spoof, which had its premiere at the ArcLight Hollywood on Thursday night.

Directed by Rhys Thomas, the six-episode series, available through Amazon, takes place in communist Romania during the 1980s and was shot with an entirely local and unexpectedly talented cast. Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jenny Slate and more act as the English-language voiceover talent.

“These actors were so good to the point where we weren’t really sure we wanted to dub them,” said Tatum of the work. “I »

TV Review: Amazon’s ‘Comrade Detective,’ From Channing Tatum

3 August 2017 2:56 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Even after finishing all of it, it’s an open question if the six-episode “Comrade Detective” is trying to be funny. The half-hour show from co-creators Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka (who created NBC’s quite different sitcom “Animal Practice”) presents itself as a lost piece of Soviet propaganda, now dredged up and remastered for curious American audiences. What it is, actually, is a six-part series shot and performed entirely in Romanian — in Romania! — and then dubbed over, ridiculously, with English. The splashy, macho cop drama set in Bucharest takes on quite a different meaning when performed in a different language, overlaid with English-language dialogue performed by Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and a whole array of guests like Jenny Slate, Nick Offerman, Jason Mantzoukas, and Chloë Sevigny. The characters self-consciously and unconvincingly sing the praises of the Soviets, while decrying the oversexualized, God-fearing weakness of the American way.
