AMC announced today that the critically acclaimed, Emmy-nominated series Better Call Saul will return for Season 2 on Monday, February 15th at 10:00 p.m. Et/Pt. A prequel to the award-winning series Breaking Bad, the series follows down-on-his-luck Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) as he navigates the moral dilemmas of the legal world while trying to step out of his older brother's shadow and make a name for himself. Season 1 found Jimmy stumble upon a large class-action lawsuit, which led to a promising job opportunity at a large firm. Having arrived at a fork in the road, will Jimmy take the straight and narrow path with a safe corporate job or will he fall back into his "Slippin' Jimmy" con-artist ways? Here's what executive producer and showrunner Peter Gould had to say in his statement about the second season.

“Annie Hall” has been named the funniest screenplay in voting by the members of the Writers Guild of America.
The script by Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman topped “Some Like it Hot,” “Groundhog Day,” “Airplane!” and “Tootsie,” which make up the rest of the top five. “Young Frankenstein,” “Dr. Strangelove,” “Blazing Saddles,” “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and “National Lampoon’s Animal House” rounded out the top 10.
The awards for the 101 funniest screenplays were announced at the Arclight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood at the conclusion of two hours of panel discussions and clips, hosted by Rob Reiner. He noted that his “This Is Spinal Tap” script had finished at the No. 11 spot — a coincidence that recalled the “go to 11” amplifier joke in the film.

Breaking Bad prequel, Better Call Saul, returns for a second season on AMC, in 2016. Set years before he became Saul Goodman, Walter White’s lawyer, Jimmy McGill is a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny and trying to make ends meet. The first season of Better Call Saul averaged 1.55 in the 18-49 ratings demographic, with an average audience of 3.21 million viewers. While AMC has yet to announce the Better Call Saul season two premiere date, the network has released a trailer.

Running Time: 486 minutes
It goes without saying that Better Call Saul is a television series accompanied by a huge amount of expectation and trepidation. The highly anticipated prequel not only carried the weight of expanding upon one of the most popular television characters of recent years, but also to successfully revisit the world of the global small screen juggernaut that is…Breaking Bad.
Many apprehensive viewers doubted that Vince Gilligan and AMC could find a genuinely fresh and unique way to delve back into the rich, entertaining and immensely addictive world of Walter White. However, this time round audiences have been treated to a closer look at Saul Goodman, Walter’s slimy, smooth-talking and often hilarious criminal lawyer.

Back in July, AMC released the first photos from Season 2 of Better Call Saul, which featured Bob Odenkirk's beloved Saul Goodman character being confronted by two mystery men. We haven't seen anything from the series since then, but the network has released two brief trailers, which sadly don't include any new footage, but gives us a tease of where Saul's mindset may be when the new season begins. The first trailer ends with a possibly cryptic quote from last season, where Saul tells Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) that "doing the right thing" will never stop him again.
Last season, fans were introduced to Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), who is nothing like his Saul Goodman persona that fans came to know and love on AMC's Breaking Bad. Despite constantly trying to do the right thing, Jimmy just can't seem to catch a break, and throughout the first season, fans got »

While cancellation often meant the end of television shows, no matter how beloved they were at the time and how lamented their departure was, the changing television landscape means this is no longer an absolute, with Netflix’s revival of the cult comedy hit Arrested Development and NBC returning to the world of Heroes with Heroes Reborn standing as only two examples. The newest entry into this increasingly expanding group will come in January of 2016, as Fox is poised to bring back the legendary science fiction series The X-Files almost 13 years after it left the air.
Set for a six episode run, the new version of The X-Files brings back a number of key elements, as series creator Chris Carter is back onboard in both a writing and directing capacity, while stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are poised to return to the lead roles of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully as well. »

Of all the notable film and television projects that are due to arrive in 2016, it is safe to say that The X-Files event series is among the most highly anticipated. Thankfully, with a premiere date set for January, the wait will not be overly torturous – but 20th Century Fox still likes to tease. Having already set the tone with a number of tiny snippets previously released, the most recent episodes of Gotham and Minority Report saw the debut of a pair of trailers for The X-Files (presented together, above), which took an innovative episodic approach.
Trailer one is the weaker of the two, because it incorporates a somewhat cheesy voiceover introduction from Agent Mulder. This is clearly designed to get the necessary exposition out of the way, and bring everyone up to speed. The X-Files is over twenty years old, after all, so there’s a whole new generation of viewers waiting to be enthralled. »

It’s a tired old Hollywood cliche: Writer spends the entire movie trying to pound out either a decent screenplay or the great American novel, and just as he (or she) is about to give up, they ditch that project and decide to write something sincere instead. With “The Meddler,” that’s not the story in the movie, but the true story of the movie. While not a direct apology for her abominable directorial debut, “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,” writer-director Lorene Scafaria’s sophomore feature returns to what works for her, drawing upon personal experience to deliver a heartfelt dramedy audiences are sure to appreciate. Bound to be among Sony Picture Classics’ top 2016 performers, “The Meddler” serves as a lovely valentine not just to her mom, Gail, but to mothers everywhere — including the luminous Susan Sarandon in a role that seems to come naturally.

The Wrap is reporting that Netflix is continuing its investment in new feature films with news that the online subscription service has acquired “mockumentary” comedy Mascots.
The film is directed by Christopher Guest (This is Spinal Tap, A Mighty Wind) and tells the story of the World Mascot Championships, in the similar mockumentary style as some of the directors previous works. It will feature “all the drama, intrigue, and occasional excitement of the 8th World Mascot Association Championships, where a group of ‘unusual’ men and women, with big heads and furry suits, compete to win the prestigious Gold Fluffy Award and be crowned best mascot in the world.”
Mascots marks the first feature from Guest since 2006’s For Your Consideration, and will more than likely see him re-team with his usual troupe of actors including Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Michael McKean, Parker Posey, John Michael Higgins, Jane Lynch and Harry Shearer. »

Actor-filmmaker Christopher Guest has revolutionized the "mockumentary" format, satirizing rock spectacle (This Is Spinal Tap), stage musicals (Waiting for Guffman), dog shows (Best in Show) and folk music (A Mighty Wind). For his latest project, he's teamed with Netflix to poke fun at a more obscure topic: the grueling grind of mascot competitions. The streaming service announced Mascots on Tuesday, Deadline reports, teasing the movie with a poster outlining the basic plot.
