NBC’s offbeat scholastic comedy Community is now over halfway to the elusive goal of six seasons and a movie, having been renewed for a fifth season with creator Dan Harmon back in the principal’s chair. Since Greendale Community College is at the heart (and in the title) of the show, this means that Jeff Winger’s time on the outside has to be cut short in order to get fan favorite actor Joel McHale back in the picture, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he has to come back as a student.
A new trailer for season 5 of Community sets up the circumstances for Jeff’s return to Greendale, as well as some of the reactions he gets (Dean Pelton is particularly tickled). If there’s one criticism to be made of this trailer, it’s that it’s hard to imagine the commercial for Jeff’s legal »

It's time to celebrate the upcoming return of "Community" Season 5 with the first trailer video, a possible return by Nathan Fillion and a rather awesome music Vine featuring stars Alison Brie and Danny Pudi.
This will hopefully be enough to keep everyone going until the official Jan. 2 return of "Community."
Season 5 goes dark-ish for Jeff
As Season 4 ended, Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) enjoyed the sweet and unfamiliar taste of success as he finally graduated from Greendale Community College. But that success may be short-lived. It's hard, after all, to be a lawyer when you suddenly have morals and scruples and the interests of humanity at heart.
Thus, Jeff gets his return to Greendale -- as a professor.
Everyone is -- at least briefly -- very happy about this. Except maybe Jeff himself, but that's only to be expected.
Nathan Fillion shows up for the end of filming

After a lackluster season four, NBC’s Community is gearing up to premiere its fifth season next month, and all is right with the world. Though the fourth season was an undeniably poor outing for the cult meta-comedy, Dan Harmon is back in the saddle as showrunner, so the likelihood of Community returning to the same level of quality for which it has become renowned is quite high.
Today, NBC has revealed a concept trailer for the fifth season, focusing on protagonist Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), who finally graduated from Greendale Community College at the end of last season.
Check it out below:
It looks like Jeff is taking a page out of Breaking Bad lawyer Saul Goodman’s book, doing his best to snare customers with cheesy advertisements for his personal injury practice. However, judging by the look of those movers, it does not seem that life after Greendale »

NBC has unveiled the first trailer for the upcoming fifth season of the comedy series Community. While fans were a bit dismayed with how season four played out without the direction of creator Dan Harmon, he’s back onboard as showrunner for season five and this trailer makes pointed reference to what may be a bit of a “do-over” for the show. The biggest revelation in this trailer is the circumstances behind how Joel McHale’s Jeff Winger returns to Greendale Community College full time. Though I’m sure it will be plenty spoiled in the many promos to come, I’ll let you folks enjoy the revelation at your own discretion. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Community returns to NBC Thursday, January 2nd at 8pm. »

Bad news: You still have to wait several weeks for the new season of Community to begin. Good news: You don’t have to wait another second for a quick preview. Check out this new trailer for the NBC comedy, in which Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) apparently has found himself at another career crossroads, and the student is about to become the teacher. Also, there is pasta throwing. There are outrageous costumes. Plus, a Leonard sighting and a Scrubs meta-reference! If you are a good person being sued, oppressed or beaten, press play and enjoy 60 seconds of comic relief. »

Spike hosted the annual Video Game Awards this weekend. Now rebranded as Vgx, the show celebrating interactive achievement was co-hosted by Community star Joel McHale and games journalist Geoff Keighley. Reactions to the show itself were let’s say a bit mixed, but the awards themselves represented a solid cross-section of the year in videogames, with awards spread out equally between mega-billion-dollar franchises and smaller titles.
Grand Theft Auto V took game of the year, but The Last of Us won awards for its studio and for its lead performers. Indie hit Gone Home won two awards, and Call of Duty didn’t win anything. »

I’ve loved Eric Bana’s work since he led Andrew Dominik’s crazy crime biopic Chopper, way back in 2000. I’m also one of the few that loved his portrayal of Bruce Banner’s in Ang Lee’s unfairly derided Hulk. So I’m always intrigued to see what he’s involved with. He’ll next be seen in Peter Berg’s fact-based military thriller Lone Survivor and while on the promotional trail for the film, he was also asked about working on Scott Derrickson’s upcoming supernatural thriller Beware The Night, which the writer/director has now confirmed will be retitled to the more clunky Deliver Us From Evil.
Bana plays a detective who teams-up with priest Edgar Ramirez to hunt down a killer with ties to the occult. He’s what the actor had to say:
“I was again playing a real person, Ralph Saatchi, who was »

During last night’s Vgx festivities, hosts Geoff Keighley and Joel McHale (Community) completed a live interview with a member of Techland’s Dying Light development team. Therein, some visceral, action-packed and brutal gameplay was shown, and we have it for you here.
Coming to current and next-gen devices, as well as PC in 2014, Dying Light is a zombie adventure/survival game that apparently makes combat optional. Its main character, who seems to have a good grip on how to use melee weapons effectively based on what we saw in the aforementioned demo, is also a parkour enthusiast. As such, he’s able to climb and/or jump onto just about anything in the environment, and can also take advantage of zombies in order to do so, via springboard means. It’s an interesting twist on a genre that traditionally favours slower, less capable and unwitting protagonists, especially since said »

Spike TV tried rebranding its annual video game awards into the more respectable 'Spike Vgx' on Saturday night, and the results were... disastrous according to various critics. While the awards themselves were considered solid choices, the ceremony proved awkward at best.
First up, the awards themselves and "Grand Theft Auto V" took the top award of 'Overall Game of the Year' along with a 'Best Soundtrack' honor. However, it was Naughty Dog's "The Last of Us" and "Bioshock Infinite" which both scored the most honors, nabbing three awards each, with Naughty Dog also taking award as best game studio of the year:
Overall Game of the Year: "Grand Theft Auto V"
Best PC Game: "Gone Home"
Best Nintendo Game: "Super Mario 3D World"
Best PlayStation Game: "The Last of Us"
Best Xbox Game: "Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons"
Best Indie Game: "Gone Home"
Best Casual Game: "Animal Crossing: New »

Earlier this week, we reported that producer Jerry Bruckheimer has finalized a three-year first-look deal at Paramount Pictures, which will go into effect in April 2014, after his Disney deal expires. During a recent interview about signing on with Paramount, the producer revealed that his upcoming thriller Beware the Night has been given the new title Deliver Us from Evil. Here's what he had to say about the project.
"I just finished a picture at Screen Gems, which turned out terrific. It's a very hard R-rated movie, a paranormal thriller. It's a new genre that I never approached, not in this vein. It's low-budget for me. I loved experiencing something completely different."
The thriller stars Eric Bana as an NYPD cop who begins investigating cases involving demonic posessions, werewolves and other supernatural occurences. Olivia Munn, Joel McHale, Édgar Ramírez and Sean Harris also star. Scott Derrickson directs from a script »
Opening up this article bluntly, Spike TV’s annually televised Video Game Awards have never been a guiding light to anything in the industry. Back during its earlier days when WWE programming was associated with the channel, whoever was running the sham would shamelessly hand out high profile awards to Smackdown games… with WWE wrestlers actually seated in the audience.
Flashing forward to more recent years, the ceremony was at least tolerable and actually distributing nominees and awards in a logical thought process. You’d be hard-pressed to find a wealth of gamers visibly upset over Uncharted 2 or The Walking Dead winning Game of the Year. Commercially and critically those games are highly lauded and rightfully so. The more recent panel has also done a very admirable job at toning down on kissing the behind of any game trending worldwide for all of the wrong reasons – cough Call of Duty »

Annual video game awards show change name, format, and broadcast exclusively online to show off amazing game footage, but is that enough?
On Saturday evening, Spike brought their annual Vga awards online for the first time in its history. The awards, now retitled Vgx, was a three hour webcast event exclusively streamed on Viacoms Cable Network websites, Yahoo Screen, Xbox Live and Twitch. The event, which was hosted by Gametrailers own Geoff Keighley and Joel McHale(Community, The Soup) eschewed the traditional large award show format of previous years and instead replaced it with a format of interviews, award presentation, trailer reveals and audience participation, which drew mixed commentary from the audience. However, the evening had its share of highlights and lowlights, both from developers and the talent themselves

Sinister director Scott Derrickson's next film Beware the Night has been given a title change to go along with its recently announced bumped up release date and will now be known as Deliver Us From Evil.
Look for it in theaters on July 2nd of next year. This move speaks volumes in regards to how confident they are about the movie, which they hope will scare up big time box office numbers, the way The Conjuring did this past summer. We shall see!
Joel McHale, Sean Harris, Edgar Ramirez, and Olivia Munn star alongside Eric Bana. The film re-teams Clint Culpepper’s Sony-based company with The Exorcism of Emily Rose tandem of Scott Derrickson and Paul Boardman. The film is a paranormal thriller that will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Films. Derrickson will direct a script he and Boardman wrote.
In the flick Bana plays an Irish Catholic cop »

Ausiello: I’m not feeling it. Besides, if my hunch is correct (tee-hee, when isn’t it?!), the new fortysomething character the show is currently casting — a handsome, charismatic fella named Andrew — will be keeping company with Bellamy Young’s love-starved Flotus. And, if this is who they end up hiring, we deserve some kind of trophy or medal. Or something.

After the wild finish in the Auburn-Alabama Iron Bowl 2013, Twitter went crazy. "Modern Family" star Eric Stonestreet posted our favorite thing -- the above video of the end of the game, where the camera was panning sad Alabama fans. He captioned it merely, "Emotions." Hee.
Down below is the radio call of the Auburn radio announcers during the missed field goal return that handed the Tigers the game -- "They're Not Gonna Keep 'Em Off The Field Tonight." Double hee.
Here are a few more great celebrity reactions:
"Walked away from the #AlabamaAuburn game for a minute. Did I miss anything?-- Joel McHale
"Wow.. Great game! #BAMAvsAUB #WarEagle #IronBowl" -- Mario Lopez
"At least I don't have to worry about Orange Bowl tickets. #badgers" -- "Once Upon a Time" creator Adam Horowitz
"That is one of The Best football games I've ever seen. What a wild ending!! #IronBowl" -- »
Joel McHale is a men's fashion and style fan who still manages to juggle his NBC Community commitments with tapings of The Soup, which recently reached a 500-episode milestone -- as well as its Daily Show-inspired spinoff The Soup Investigates. He even did the premiere episode for Esquire's The Getaway where he shopped for nice duds in Dublin. And he somehow finds time to have a movie career, to wit, he played Mila Kunis' boss in the 2012 blockbuster Ted with a role as a former Army Ranger in Beware the Night and a part as Robin Williams' son in the upcoming holiday comedy Merry Friggin' Christmas. The Hollywood Reporter had an intervie with McHale for their second annual »

Tuesday morning’s announcement of Indie Spirit Award nominations brought the annual head-scratching over some selections, in terms of eligibility. Many films were disqualified because of budget or nationality of the key contributors. On the flip side, pundits are sometimes flummoxed at the inclusion of studio films that don’t seem like indies.
“12 Years a Slave,” this year’s top Spirit Award nominee with seven nods, apparently made Film Independent’s $20 million-and-under eligibility mandate, despite the film’s budget having been previously reported at $21 million or even $22 million. Fox Searchlight says the number falls “under $20 million.”

Kim Kardashian's step-brother Brody Jenner doesn't know if he'll be invited to her wedding to Kanye West. The recent addition to "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" makes it sound like he isn't particularly close to Kim.
As for those who definitely shouldn't be expecting a save the date, Zap2it has compiled a list of the five people least likely to be invited to the Kimye wedding of the century.
Kris Humphries: There is no way on earth Kim's last husband will show up at the wedding. Considering Kanye was essentially her rebound, there's no way he'd want to be in the audience either.

Sons Of Anarchy returns for a fifth season and it’s the first season I’ve watched myself. Despite this obvious hindrance when viewing I was immediately gripped and entertained throughout. How much higher can you praise a show than merely stating that it left me wishing I’d been there from the beginning? On the surface, it may seem like a machismo biker show, but it travels to much darker and involving depths. Sons Of Anarchy charts the rise and fall of certain criminal organisations and gangs, with the focus being on the titular biker gang. Where it succeeds in being so much more is the dramatic and theatrical elements, such as »
