What's New on Netflix Streaming in December 2014

25 November 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Netflix streaming is upping the ante this December, adding enough high-profile TV shows and movies to more than make up for last month's lackluster offerings.

On the movie side, highlights include Will Ferrell and gang in "Anchorman 2," the Heath Ledger-starring "A Knight's Tale," Cameron Crowe classic "Almost Famous," Oscar-winning "American Beauty," and horror hits "Oculus" and "Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones." Oh, and let's not forget '80s classic "Troop Beverly Hills," '90s cult favorite "Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion," or Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Wolf of Wall Street."

And there's plenty to love about what's coming on the TV front: "American Horror Story: Coven" finally gets its day on Netflix, "Sharknado 2" storms its way to streaming, and Brit hit "Broadchurch" finally lands stateside. Oh, and December sees the premiere of the hotly anticipated Netflix Original series "Marco Polo" on the 12th.

Lego Batman movie will explore “every era of Batman filmmaking”

19 November 2014 11:38 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

One of the most popular elements of this year’s widely successful The Lego Movie was Will Arnett’s Batman. So popular was he that he’s getting his own spin-off movie in 2017. Speaking out the movie to Empire, Phil Lord and Chris (who will serve as producers on the movie) gave some insights as to what we can expect.

“Rest assured, every era of Batman filmmaking will be acknowledged,” Lord said.

“There have been so many interpretations of Batman and there is so much to play with there,” Miller added. “There are 40 versions of his origin story alone.”

Lord and Miller will return to direct The Lego Movie 2, which they have promised will feature more female characters.

Chris McKay, who served as a writer on The Lego Movie, will direct the Lego Batman spin-off with Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). Before that, Warner Bros. will be releasing »

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill crack up in '22 Jump Street' outtake

19 November 2014 9:17 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It turns out you weren't the only one who couldn't stop laughing during "22 Jump Street." Star Jonah Hill also had a hard time keeping a straight face, as evidenced in a new outtake featured on the film's new DVD and Blu-ray. Co-star Rob Riggle's bug-eyed prisoner routine makes Hill giggle so hard that he can't even finish one sentence, much to the amusement of Channing Tatum and Dave Franco. The best part of the video is that it shows the action from four different angles simultaneously. It's like film school, only the dirty words are bleeped out. Watch it on Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller ("The Lego Movie"), "22" also stars Ice CubePeter Stormare, Amber Stevens, Nick Offerman and Jillian Bell. The DVD and Blu-ray release also includes deleted and extended scenes, featurettes, audio commentary with Tatum, Hill, Lord and Miller, and "The Dramatic Interpretation »

Danny Collins Trailer and Images: Al Pacino Receives a Letter from John Lennon

19 November 2014 9:05 AM, PST | | See recent news »

The first Danny Collins trailer has been released for the upcoming comedy-drama from Crazy, Stupid, Love. scribe Dan Fogelman.  Previously titled Imagine, the film stars Al Pacino as an aging 1970s rocker who uncovers a 40-year-old letter written to him by John Lennon, which spurs him to try and reconnect with his family.  Fogelman is making his directorial debut with the picture, which also includes some of Lennon’s songs, and it looks like a perfectly nice movie.  The cast is certainly impressive—especially Christopher Plummer and Bobby Cannavale—and the lead role seems like a solid fit for Pacino.  The trailer’s not particularly noteworthy or anything, but it looks like it could be a sweet film. Check the first Danny Collins trailer and images after the jump.  The film also stars Annette Bening, Jennifer Garner, Josh Peck, and Nick OffermanDanny Collins opens in theaters on March 20, 2015.

Nick Offerman Presents His Handcrafted Wood Emojis

15 November 2014 7:49 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Nick Offerman is a man of many talents, and among his many manly hobbies is woodworking. In fact, Offerman supposedly runs a carpentry shop producing high-end handmade goods. The Parks and Recreation star appeared on a recent episode of Conan and starred in this commercial parody for his series of handcrafted wood emojis. Enjoy!

Parks and Recreation returns for its final 13-episode season on NBC in 2015. Conan airs weeknights at 11 p.m. Et on TBS.

Watch Nick Offerman Sell Wooden Emojis on ‘Conan’

14 November 2014 7:44 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The line between Nick Offerman and his beloved “Parks and Recreation” character Ron Swanson is becoming even more blurred. On Thursday night, Offerman presented a faux-commercial for wooden, hand-carved emojis during a visit to “Conan.”

“I think it’s time we got back to a more old-fashioned, more personal, more American way of communication,” Offerman says in the mock infomercial, proudly displaying a bulky wooden smiley face on the table of his wood shop.

Offerman advocates toting one’s collection of wooden emoticons — each weighing 14 lbs. and costing $29.99 — around in a large burlap sack for more earnest communication with loved ones. “Just hammer the emojis together with some nails and then apply your choice of wood varnish or shellac. Not only have you gotten your message across, but you’ve built something with your own bare hands. And that feels good.”

We bet wooden emojis are Duke Silver’s preferred method of communication, »

Nick Offerman Wants to Show You His Wood Emojis—Watch the Conan Mock Infomercial!

What the best way to communicate with that special someone? Show them your wood emojis, of course. As everybody (including your mom, with her new iPhone, bless her) knows, the best way to express yourself is with tiny smiley faces and pictures of poop. And Nick Offerman, Internet-favorite celeb, Parks and Recreation star and best-looking actor with a mustache since Tom Selleck, has taken them to the next level. In a mock infomercial that aired on Conan this week, Offerman, channeling Home Improvement's Richard Karn in a blue and green plaid shirt and overalls, showcases several artfully handcrafted, dinner plate-sized wooden versions of emojis, "lovingly »

Nick Offerman wants to sell you hand-crafted wood emojis

14 November 2014 9:03 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our modern lives have become too dependent on technology to do the heavy lifting of communicating emotion. Or so thinks Nick Offerman. But how do you reconcile today’s Millennials with old-fashioned “real world” interaction? With lovingly hand-crafted wood emojis, obviously. Offerman stopped by Conan to show off his woodworking crafts. All joking aside, if this isn’t a real thing you can buy on Etsy by the end of the year, the Internet will have failed us. »

’22 Jump Street’ Blu-ray Review

11 November 2014 7:05 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Ice CubeJillian BellPeter Stormare, Amber Stevens, Nick Offerman, Wyatt Russell, The Lucas Brothers, Marc Evan Jackson, Rob Riggle | Written by Michael Bacall, Oren Uziel, Rodney Rothman | Directed by Phil Lord, Christopher Miller

When 21 Jump Street came out it had little expectations. A reboot of a heavily dated late 80’s television program that will be directed by people who never made a live-action film before?—surely it will fail. Not only did it not fail it was both a critical and financial smash hit. Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller took the ridiculousness of the reboot and used it in their favor by making it an updated meta spoof on Hollywood’s need to reboot everything. Now the question becomes, can they do it again?

In short the answer to that question is a solid yes. 22 Jump Street keeps with the tradition of the first film, »

Batman Becomes Jealous Of Star-Lord In New Hishe Video

“The Lego® Movie,” the first-ever, full-length theatrical Lego® adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures.

Nick Offerman Stars In 'Last Week Tonight' Home Depot Ad

3 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Nick Offerman, best known for playing Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation, starred in a fake Home Depot ad on John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight.

Nick Offerman's Home Depot Ad

On Sunday's Last Week Tonight, Oliver targeted Lowe's pre-Christmas shopping announcement that they are currently testing out robotic shopping assistants in some of their stores that would help customers locate products. One lucky shopper notes in the real-life Lowe's spot, “I actually really liked it, and we could be considered friends,” which really disturbed Oliver – especially considering the marriage-ending capabilities of a trip to a home supplies store.

"If you want to test your marriage, go buy home supplies together," said Oliver, quipping, "Robots don’t realize that home improvement stores are a lethal combination of everything that can ruin a relationship – spending money, reconciling tastes, long-term planning and florescent lighting."

Driving home his point, Oliver enlisted Offerman »

Lowe's recently announced that some of their stores will soon feature robotic shopping assistants. John Oliver thinks that is a terrible idea, and invited Nick Offerman to help explain why.
