Fox’s Nsfw Easter cartoon is drawing some holiday heat. The animated short on the network’s Animation Domination High-Def (Adhd) online channel is a raunchy (and quite catchy) music video titled “The Easter Bunny’s Coming” (video below).
The Parents Television Council, an independent watchdog group that monitors network programming and frequently protests content, called the video “X rated” and crowned it “the most explicit material we’ve ever seen produced by a broadcast television network.”
“We thought we had seen the worst of ‘Adhd’ when Fox aired a segment several months ago with high school characters gleefully taking »

One film in today's bulletin was able to appeal itself out of an R-rating and into a PG-13, another is Laika's latest stop-motion animated effort and it received a PG-rating and three others land an R. First up is Laika's The BoxTrolls, receiving a none-too-surprising PG rating for the quirky little animated studio and the film that now has a PG-13 on appeal is the Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann comedy The Other Woman. First up for those receiving an R is Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys, which I must admit, while I've never seen the play I'm surprised it's an R-rated movie, I would have put money on it being a family-friendly PG-13, but what do I knowc Next is Luke Greenfield's buddy cop movie, Let's Be Cops, earning an R rating for pretty much everything it can and, to no surprise, Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West »

A new big screen adaptation of Flash Gordon has been in and out of development for years. Back in 2008 Sony Pictures was moving forward with the project and even had Breck Eisner attached to direct it. For one reason or another the project fell apart and never happened. It seems like there's been no movement since.
Now Film Divider is reporting that there's a fresh attempt to bring Flash Gordon to the big screen, and that Star Trek 3 writers Jd Payne and Patrick McKay have been hired to pen the script. Nothing these two guys have written has made it to the big screen yet, but they did write a script for Bad Robot called Boilerplate, which hasn't been produced yet. Apparently these guys are supposed to be a couple of hot up-and-coming writers.
They’ve apparently developed a new take on Flash with producer Jon Davis and are »

One of the more memorable storylines of Seth MacFarlane’s Ted involved the main characters’ obsession with the 1980 camp classic Flash Gordon, an adaptation of the 1930s comic strip-turned serial film series by Alex Raymond. One of the most entertaining “bad” movies out there, director Mike Hodges’ cheeseball epic is only one of a great many versions of the sci-fi property, most of which were made for television.
The original comic followed the adventures of the title character, a polo player (a football quarterback in the 1980 film) who along with companion Dale Arden is kidnapped by the half-crazy scientist Dr. Zarkov and ends up on the planet Mongo, where they fight the ...

So in case you were living under a rock this weekend or better yet, you were consuming a lot of great HBO, you might have realized the MTV Movie Awards took place (“The Hunger Games” won a bunch of shit, just like the “Twilight” movies before it). That means every studio and their mother released some kind of new clip or TV Spot and we have a few more stragglers today. What do you do if your first writer/directorial effort is a smash hit? Well, if you’re comedian and “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, you use the success of “Ted” and parlay it into the cachet of doing a western. And a western comedy, no less. I can just see the execs at Universal trying to agonizingly squeeze amused looks in their faces during the pitch. A western comedy? It sounds like a recipe for box-office poison, but »

“That’s the thing about the story — it’s a cancer book, a cancer movie, that’s not about cancer,” Woodley told Variety. “It’s about love and it’s about universal messages. It’s a celebration of life.”
The film, adapted from John Green’s novel, is a story about two teens that fall in love after meeting at a cancer support group.
Green said he was truly inspired from the actors’ dedication.
“With characters like that you have to be really authentic and real, and I wanted to bring a sense of authenticity and truth to them,” said Woodley.

Universal has released a new TV spot for A Million Ways to Die in the West. The story revolves around a cowardly farmer (MacFarlane) who backs out of a gunfight and subsequently loses his girlfriend. When he later meets the wife of a notorious outlaw who teaches him how to shoot, he gets an opportunity to win his pride back, but must choose between reclaiming an old love or kindling a new one. The plot thickens when the outlaw returns to claim his woman. I'm really looking forward to this movie, especially since this TV spot shows the jokes won't just be foul language and slapstick. There's also a business called the "Moustachery". Hit the jump to check out the TV spot. The film also stars Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, Giovanni Ribisi, and Neil Patrick Harris. A Million Ways to Die in the West opens on May 30th. »

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire might have taken home Movie of the Year at the MTV Movie Awards Sunday night, but Francis Lawrence.s sequel wasn.t the big winner at the telecast. Fans who are amped up for the upcoming Summer blockbuster season were treated to a buffet of exclusive (and often new) footage for movies like Seth MacFarlane A Million Ways to Die in the West, Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Most of it connected with the target audience. For a studio, advertising during the MTV Movie Awards is a slam dunk home run. But one studio hit a grand slam by bringing an outstanding clip for the MTV audience. Bryan Singer.s X-Men: Days of Future Past. Watch this unreal clip of the mutant army in action, taking on lethal Sentinels. It.s fantastic! »

Tonight, during the MTV Movie Awards, Hollywood’s biggest studios took the opportunity to hype up audiences for some of the summer’s biggest releases. Over the course of the evening, we saw new TV spots for blockbusters like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Edge of Tomorrow, Transformers: Age of Extinction and many more.
Honestly, I can’t say that I’m terribly excited for this summer’s offerings, especially when you look at what 2015 has in store for us. If there is one film I’m eager to see though, it’s Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West. As demonstrated in the new TV spot released tonight, it just looks so damn funny. The director hit it out of the park a few years ago with Ted, and I have no doubt that he’ll see similar success with his follow-up.
In regards to the other stuff, »

Los Angeles (AP) — "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" earned the prize for best film at Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards, besting even top Oscar winner "12 Years a Slave." "Hunger Games" stars also took home some of the night's biggest awards. Jennifer Lawrence won best female performance and Josh Hutcherson was voted best male performer. Zany categories were also in abundance. Zac Efron earned best shirtless performance, while properly accepting his award, well, shirtless. Plenty of golden popcorn-shaped prizes were handed out at the 22nd annual MTV Movie Awards, but it was the summer movie teasers — and the stars attached to them — that really had Hollywood excited. Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Jamie Foxx, stars of "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," coming May 2, introduced a brief clip of the film showing Spider-Man (Garfield) and the sparkling blue villain Electro (Foxx) battling in New York's Times Square. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, the star of "Godzilla, »

Seth MacFarlane.s Western spoof A Million Ways to Die in the West was one of a handful of summer features that brought new footage to New York City to air during the MTV Movie Awards. Check out the TV spot above. The clip, which was posted on Universal.s official YouTube page, sells the presence of the baritone-voiced Liam Neeson right up front. MacFarlane.s basically telling his fans, "Yes, I worked with a foul-mouthed bear last time, but I have freaking Liam Neesons in my corner now!" You already know two valets who.ll be in the theater on opening night. The whole West clip basically sells MacFarlane.s Oscar-winning co-stars. After setting up Neeson, the TV spot moves on to "The Bad-Ass" . Charlize Theron, as the butch frontier woman who is going to teach MacFarlane.s mousy non-cowboy how to stand up to Neeson.s notorious outlaw. »
"I think we may have just found a Transformer." Tonight MTV hosted their faux-awards show the MTV Movie Awards, which aren't worth covering aside from the handful of new TV spots that debuted during the show.

Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder (William Fichtner) and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. »
