Community season 6 trailer launches

20 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Community season 6's trailer has a very Avengers style feel to it...

It's actually happened: Community season six is upon us. Somehow Greendale has survived gas leaks, Hawthorne deaths, and even Friday night exile on NBC in the Us. Granted, at this point Community is the rare television network sitcom that is no longer on television, but Six Seasons and a Movie is almost a reality. And Yahoo wants you to know who to thank with the very Avengers-ish Community season six trailer.

Taking more than a page from the previews for Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the Age of Yahoo trailer promises that the movie and pop culture references that makes the 'Greendale Seven' beloved by geeks everywhere are still present and correct. Even if it is at this point, it’s more the 'Greendale Four but with more Chang'.

In the new trailer, we get our first glimpse of »

Community Season Six Trailer Online

3 March 2015 6:37 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Alhough it looked for a moment as though cult sitcom Community might never achieve the hashtagged fan dream of six seasons and a movie, the show has survived thanks to a pickup by Yahoo!, which has moved the show to its Screen service online ready for launch later this month. Now the Avengers-spoofing trailer for the sixth season has arrived. From the evidence of this, Greendale Community College is just as wacky and weird as ever, with plenty of the usual madness on display. The trailer naturally foregrounds the bigger comedy concepts and pop culture references that show creator Dan Harmon and his team have become adept at whisking into a satisfying whole. Hopefully the new episodes will also retain the emotional underpinning that has been a key component. With remaining regulars Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, Dani Pudi and Ken Jeong on full display here, there »

Community Season 6 Trailer: The 5 Most Hilarious Moments (Video)

3 March 2015 2:35 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's un-Dean-iable, the trailer for the new season of Community has us super excited for season 6 to hit Yahoo! Screen on March 17. For those who have not had the chance to watch it, here are the five most hilarious quotes from the new trailer:5. "You are the worst actor I've ever directed, and I've directed both Wahlbergs!" -??? (Jason Mantzoukas)We might not know the name of the character played by Parks and Recreation's Mantzoukas, but that doesn't make it any less funny when he pours a drink over Chang's (Ken Jeong) head as he compares him to brothers Donnie and Mark Wahlberg. »

Watch the trailer for Community Season 6

3 March 2015 1:23 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems almost impossible that Community is set to debut its sixth season next month. Over its tenure, the show has dealt with internal bust-ups, sackings, re-hirings (creator Dan Harmon returning for season 5), cast members departing and some particularly low viewing figures compared to other high-profile shows. And, who can forget, being cancelled by NBC last year.

But, despite all of that and its somewhat inevitable cancellation, Community lives on thanks to Yahoo!, and have revealed the first full trailer for the new season. Yahoo! Screen, who purchased the rights to the show, are set to air the new season on March 17th, with it’s UK bow set for 24 hours later.

Despite some of the original cast leaving for different reasons (Chevy Chase was sacked after season 4, Donald Glover left for his own show just after season 5 had started, and Yvette Nicole Brown left before season 6 began to take »

‘Community’ Trailer: Yahoo Joins Yahoos For Season 6

3 March 2015 12:28 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The long, winding road of the Dan Harmon-created Community has led it from NBC to Yahoo, which over the summer revived NBC’s perennial bubble show that was finally canceled after five seasons. The new class of Greendale Community College includes Paget Brewster and Keith David joining the core group that includes Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash, Dani Pudi and Ken Jeong.

Greendale Keeps It Weird In Trailer For Community Season 6

3 March 2015 12:20 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After a long, tumultuous journey, Community is heading back to our screens this March when Greendale Community College opens its doors for a sixth season. Its shift from NBC to the small screen abode of Yahoo! Screen sees the return of series creator Dan Harmon and a core cast of returning fan favorites. To reacquaint Greendale aficionados with the show – and to introduce its newbies – Yahoo! has now debuted a brand new trailer for the forthcoming season.

Leaning heavily on the series’ hankering for pop. culture shenanigans, this new teaser for the season proves that there’s still plenty of movie and TV material left to mine. Namely, Avengers: Age Of Ultron, which the trailer emulates with its own cheeky title card – Community: Age Of Yahoo.

Thrown into the mix of ragtag Greendale attendees are two new stars. Paget Brewster, who the dean describes in perfect meta-fashion as “New »

Watch: 'Community' Spoofs 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' In Trailer For Season 6

3 March 2015 10:46 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

While the entire gang won't be returning, at this point "Community" fans will have to take what they can get. And that means the show will move from national television to uh, Yahoo, which the team behind the comedy is embracing with the first trailer seeing everyone settle into their new home. Spoofing "Avengers: Age Of Ultron," this trailer welcomes everyone to "Community: Age Of Yahoo." Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Jim Rash and Ken Jeong are reprising their roles with Paget Brewster and Keith David also joining the team. You'll see all the faces in this spot, but the more things change, the more they stay the same. While the move online might suggest a Netflix style release, the episodes will still arrive in the old school one-per-week format for some reason.  "Community" is back on March 17th. Watch below.

'Community' Season 6 Trailer Spoofs 'Avengers 2'

3 March 2015 10:42 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Exactly two weeks before the final season of Community kicks off on its new online home at Yahoo! Screen, we finally have the first trailer for Season 6. The footage clearly pays homage to Avengers: Age of Ultron, touting "allies" including new cast members Keith David as Elroy Patashnik, a retired scientist who joins the Greendale study group, and even a new educational format, with local prisoners "attending" classes at Greendale via Skype.

There will be plenty of changes in store for the community college thanks to the addition of Paget Brewster, who plays Francesca "Frankie" Dart, a consultant brought in to help whip Greendale into shape. Season 6 will be missing a few familiar faces though, with Yvette Nicole Brown leaving the show to take care of her ailing father, and Season 5 star Jonathan Banks also not returning, due to his commitment to AMC's Better Call Saul.

‘The Duff’ is a mildly entertaining comedy with confused identity politics

24 February 2015 5:43 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Duff

Written by Josh A. Cagan (based on a novel by Kody Keplinger)

Directed by Ari Sandel

USA, 2015

The Duff takes the geek-gets-a-makeover high school formula and tweaks it mostly muddled results. A few naturalistic romance scenes and the efforts of its very able leads, buoy this into watchable territory. However overall this is a film plagued by confusion and several nonsensical plot twists.

Bianca (Parenthood’s Mae Whitman) lacks style and popularity, but living in the orbit of her two popular best friends, fashionista Jess (Skyler Samuels) and athlete Casey (Bianca Santos), she barely notices. The film opens with a Breakfast-Club-esque voiceover from Bianca about how high school used to be broken down into the jock, the nerd, the criminal, the princess, and the basket case, but now that it’s the 21st century, geeks rule the world, jocks play video games, and most of the old social stratifications no longer exist. »

Can Jed Mercurio's Critical revive the medical drama?

23 February 2015 5:11 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The heady days of ER are long gone, and hospital dramas have fallen from favour. Can Critical, starring Lennie James, breathe new life into the genre?

When was the last time you found yourself excited by a medical drama? BBC stalwarts Casualty and Holby City limp round once a week, while Grey’s Anatomy continues to untangle its various romances. The schedules are stuffed with crime dramas – from the cosy to the darkly complex – but it seems the poor hospital drama has fallen from favour. Even medical dramas don’t want to be medical dramas: ABC’s Forever, ostensibly a medical show, is actually about an immortal examiner trying to unravel the mystery of his eternal life.

So where is the programme to give the medical drama the shot of adrenaline it so desperately needs? In the Us, they’re hoping the answer to that question is “right around the »

New The Duff Movie Delivered Great Comedy,Drama,Story & More

21 February 2015 7:42 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

CBS Films released their new comedy flick, "The Duff," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was very entertaining, delivering a good mixture of laughs, drama , and romance. It stars: Allison Janney, Romany Malco, Mae Whitman, Ken Jeong, Bianca Santos, Robbie Amell, Bella Thorne, Skyler Samuels and Nick Eversman. The movie revolved around character, Bianca (Mae Whitman), who is a content high school senior until her childhood, next door neighbor friend, Wesley (Robbie Amell), informs her that she is a Duff (Designated Ugly Fat Friend) to her prettier, more popular friends, Jess and Casey. This newfound information gets to Bianca so much that it causes her to end her friendship with Jess and Casey, and seek out Wesley's help to unDUFF her in exchange for helping him pass his science class, which he is heavily failing. Unfortunately, the school's hot mean chick/Wesley's ex, Madison, »

CBS Films released their new comedy film, "The Duff," into theaters this weekend, and the top,major movie critics have turned in their reviews for it. It turns out that they were pretty mixed across the board, giving it a 55 score out of a possible 100 across 26 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The film stars: Allison Janney, Romany Malco, Mae Whitman, Ken Jeong, Bianca Santos, Robbie Amell, Bella Thorne, Skyler Samuels and Nick Eversman. We've supplied blurbs from a few of the critics, below. Inkoo Kang from TheWrap, gave it a great 90 score, stating: "There’s no doubt that The Duff is clever, funny and quotable enough to become this decade’s “Mean Girls.” Watch your back, Regina George — there’s a new queen bee in town." Christy Lemire over at RogerEbert.com, gave it a 75 score, saying: "Quickly and convincingly, it becomes its own funny and fast-paced phenomenon with its own modern-day charm. »

Warning: We're about to recap all of the surprises and shocks from Glee's most-recent wedding! If you want to know the details of the day (and potentially catch the bouquet!) keep on reading. If you don’t, well … fine then. You weren't invited anyway.

Film Review: ‘The Duff’

20 February 2015 6:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A smart, snappy “Pygmalion” for the millennial age, “The Duff” gives a modernized makeover to a classical scenario involving an outcast who tries to fit in with the help of a good-looking, popular mentor. The ugly duckling in this case is Bianca (“Arrested Development’s” Mae Whitman), a high-school senior who’s initially defined by her denim overalls, penchant for burping, and extremely attractive and sought-after BFFs, Jess (Skyler Samuels) and Casey (Bianca Santos). Oblivious to the fact that she’s the most ignored member of her friendship threesome, Bianca finds her world upended when her lifelong neighbor, quarterback Wes (Robbie Amell), bluntly informs her that she’s a “Duff” – the Designated Ugly Fat Friend who functions as the gatekeeper for those interested in finding out about, or getting closer to, her more desirable comrades. Thus an identity crisis is born, one that director Ari Sandel and writer Josh A. Cagan »
