After battling the high seas in 2013’s All is Lost, and threatening all the president’s supermen in last year’s Captain America: Winter Soldier, Robert Redford would seem more than deserving of a little down time. For the prolific actor, producer, and festival head, taking a break meant finally filming passion project A Walk in the Woods, an adaptation of Bill Bryson’s 1998 travelogue memoir. And while a movie about hiking 2,200 miles along the Appalachian Trail sounds anything but restful, A Walk in the Woods proves to be as taxing and eventful as an afternoon nap.
The book provides a presumably loose map for screenwriters Bill Holderman and Michael Arndt (nom de plum Rick Kerb) to follow. The real Bryson trekked through America’s northeast while still in his ‘40s; the Bryson played by Redford is a septuagenarian. Few would argue that the 79-year-old Redford has aged poorly, »

One of the main reasons we go to the movies is to be transported to another world. This might mean a literal different planet, or it might be some dangerous wilderness. While we love our space movies, we have a soft spot in our hearts for movies exploring Earth’s own extreme terrains.
This week sees the release of A Walk in the Woods, a film about a man who returns to the Us and decides to hike the Appalachian Trail to reconnect to his roots. Starring Robert Redford as a man intent on hiking the lengthy Georgia to Maine trek, A Walk in the Woods looks like a promising movie for the outdoor enthusiast. Nick Nolte, Mary Steenburgen, Nick Offerman and Emma Thompson also star.
Luckily for us, there’s no shortage of films celebrating the great outdoors. Hiking, climbing, you name it – if it can be done outside, »

John Oliver and the “Last Week Tonight” staff wrangled together a band of comedians and TV talent for a sexual education explainer that is both much funnier and arguably more informative than the videos teens are currently forced to watch in school for sex ed class.
Complete with wacky graphics and fonts that could have come straight from Microsoft PowerPoint, the PSA makes sex ed seem pretty simple. “If you want to be abstinent, that’s fine,” Tyler offers, to which Schaal adds, “If you don’t want to be abstinent, that’s also fine.”
Other highlights include Mullally explaining ancient Egyptian contraception practices, declaring, “They’re all dead now”; Cox illustrating how to put a condom on a banana; and McBrayer saying, “This is a vagina.”

According to John Oliver, sex education in schools is lacking, so some Hollywood stars stepped in to help. Laverne Cox, Jack McBrayer, Nick Offerman, Kumail Nanjiani and more talked intercourse and abstinence in this week’s episode of “Last Week Tonight,” after Oliver told his audience what’s wrong with sex education in schools today. With kids going back to school next week, Oliver says it is necessary for students to get adequate (and honest) sexual education. He states that only 13 states in the U.S. require that instruction be medically accurate, and that Mississippi prohibits condom demonstration in sex ed classes — not. »

"Teaching sex ed in schools is really important for obvious reasons," John Oliver says in his latest Last Week Tonight report. "No parent wants to talk to their kids about sex, and no kid wants to talk about sex with their parents. That is why when you're watching a movie together and there's a sex scene, everyone becomes motionless and silently begs for the merciful release of death." The host explores that intricate and awkward subject, revealing a shocking inconsistency related to sexual education in American schools.
Oliver opens on a light note, »
The first season of the FX miniseries “Fargo” was a hit, both with fans and the industry that lauded it with an astounding 18 Emmy nominations.
So how did series creator Noah Hawley approach season two of the series based on the 1996 Coen brothers movie? He headed back to the drawing board — sort of.
“It is a complete reinvention,” Hawley said during the show’s presentation Friday at the Television Critics Association. “It is a completely new story. It evokes the things you remember from the movie and at the end of the first year.”
Season two goes back in time to 1979 and focuses on police officer Lou Solverson, who was played by Keith Carradine in the first season and is now played by Patrick Wilson. A naturally good person, Lou and his partner Hank (Ted Danson) find more than they bargained for when they investigate a shooting at the Sioux Falls diner. »

There’s good news for UK fans of the hardest-working local government department in Indiana, as the fourth season of Parks and Recreation is finally set to surface on Dave.
The series took an age to reach British shores, with BBC4 picking up the first seasons at the same time as the penultimate season was airing in the Us. But despite a top-drawer cast, with Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari and Jurassic World star Chris Pratt playing some of the most enjoyable characters in modern sitcom history in a pitch-perfect caricature of small midwestern city life, the show hasn’t really managed to grab the British audience it deserves.

There’s no waffling about the first trailer for FX’s sophomore season of “Fargo”: This is a deal of a crime scene.
The new season of the miniseries is set in 1979 and follows Patrick Wilson and Ted Danson’s cops Lou Solverson and Hank Larsson as they begin to investigate what appears to be a murder at a diner named for the patterned breakfast food. Along the way, they’ll have encounters with a mustache-free and conspiracy-minded character played by Nick Offerman and a formidable foe in the form of a matriarch played by Jean Smart.
The sequence of events will eventually lead to Wilson’s character becoming the diner-owning Lou Solverson whom Keith Carradine portrayed in the miniseries’ first season.
“If you were paying attention in season one, you know we made a lot of references to Sioux Falls, and that was deliberate; that wasn’t an accident, »

The deadpan, morbid humor and ruthless, down-home violence only the vast, frozen Midwest could inspire fills the first official trailer for FX's Fargo, which returns for its second season in October.
Set in Luverne, Minnesota and Sioux Falls, South Dakota in 1979, the clip opens with Patrick Wilson, as a younger Lou Solverson (played by Keith Carradine in Season One), and Ted Danson, playing Luverne Sheriff and Lou's father-in-law, Hank Larsson, finding several dead bodies in a diner.
Though their initial inkling is a botched robbery, a local lawyer played by Nick Offerman cracks, »
FX just released the full-length trailer for "Fargo" season 2, a prequel to the first season starring Patrick Wilson as young Lou Solverson, investigating crime in late '70s Minnesota. This one puts the whole cast — including Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Jean Smart, Nick Offerman, Jeffrey Donovan, and many more — on display, and uses Dr. John's "Right Place Wrong Time" to help set the period mood. No official premiere date yet, but as the trailer says, look for this new chapter in October. »

It's cold, but other than that the new installment of the TV miniseries adaptation of the 1996 Coen brothers movie is very different than last year. For one thing, FX's Fargo has Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Jean Smart, Nick Offerman, Brad Garrett and Kieran Culkin in the Noah Hawley-run show this time round. What is the same as last time, as the trailer above shows, is blood, murder and mystery. In this case, the story is set in 1979 and has… »
After an incredible first year that earned the hit FX anthology series "Fargo" some hardware during awards season, expectations for the second installment are high. The new season adds Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Nick Offerman, Jean Smart, Kieran Culkin, and Bruce Campbell (as Ronald Reagan) to the cast.

The "true crime" storyline investigates a local gang and a major Mob syndicate, and is inspired by three films of the Coen brothers, including "Miller's Crossing," "The Man Who Wasn't There," and, of course, "Fargo."
