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

I thought the last update of 2014 Oscar contending screenplays available for download was impressive, but today's update includes more than you're going to know what to do with as Warner Bros. has made Jonas and Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity screenplay available along with the scripts for 42, The Great Gatsby and Prisoners. Meanwhile, Paramount has released Bob Nelson's script for Nebraska and Roadside has released J.C. Chandor's 31-page outline for All is Lost. Finally, Disney has made the Frozen screenplay available once again, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash's screenplay for The Way, Way Back, Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope's screenplay for Philomena and Tracy Letts' August: Osage County This brings the total number of screenplays to 32 and I've been told I can expect the likes of Inside Llewyn Davis, American Hustle and Captain Phillips as early as this week, so stay tuned. The complete list of »

Alexander Payne directed and co-wrote only six films, including Election, About Schmidt, Sideways and The Descendants, but he’s regarded as one of the best American filmmakers working today. He’s directed some of the best performances from Hollywood’s top actors, including Paul Giamatti, Jack Nicholson, and George Clooney in starring roles, and he and his writing partner Jim Taylor have picked up two Oscars for best adapted screenplay. His new film, Nebraska, stars Bruce Dern, who won the best actor award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Nebraska adds another strong resonant chapter to Payne’s remarkable filmography, so we thought we should take a look back at his career. Here is our list of his movies in order of least favourite to favourite. Enjoy!

“Don’t Trust the B— in Apt 23′s” Nahnatchka Khan and Corey Nickerson have another dark comedy in the works. Fox has ordered their pilot “Fatrick,” about a thirtysomething moving man named Patrick who is forced to face the time of his youth he was bullied for his weight and called — you guessed it –”Fatrick.”

Fatrick was one of the first big sales this season, landing a pilot production commitment at Fox in early August. Now the comedy, written by Don’t Trust The B—- At Apt. 23 creator/executive producer Nahnatchka Khan and co-exec producer Corey Nickerson and to be directed by Oscar-winning scribes Nat Faxon & Jim Rash (The Descendants), has received an early pilot order. Produced by 20th TV, where Khan is under an overall deal, Fatrick centers on Patrick, a 30-something moving man and formerly fat kid, who, realizing that his life isn’t quite where it should be, is forced to face the damage caused by years of being Fatrick: a chubby little kid just trying to survive. The project, which will be shifting between the present and Patrick’s school years, will mark Faxon and Rash’s TV directorial debut. Fatrick is one of two high-profile single-camera comedy projects with »

A shy 14-year-old (Liam James) finds solace from his divorced mother (Toni Collette) and her overbearing boyfriend (Steve Carell) with maverick water park manager Owen (Sam Rockwell). The Descendants writer/directors Jim Rash and Nat Faxon's directorial debut is a sweet, knowing tribute to teenage awkwardness, to divorced parents trying to restore family values and to those who find themselves as unlikely mentors. »
In my other life, I teach 9th grade and the theme for the year is Coming of Age. It has become a major inspiration for movies, television, songs, and tons of books for the last century or two. As a result, it takes a lot to gain attention and have something fresh to say. The Way Way Back odes that by examining three different stages of coming of age, each a type you’ve seen before, but melded nicely into a satisfying blend.
The movie, out now from 20th Century Home Entertainment, tells the story of Duncan (Liam James), who is forced to accompany his divorced Mom (Toni Collette) on a summer away with her boyfriend, the quietly cruel and controlling Trent (Steve Carell), and his daughter Steph (Zoe Levin). He’d rather be with dad, who is busy settling into a San Diego life with his new girlfriend. Instead, »

New Indie First-time filmmaker makes a sensitive coming-of-age tale… are your eyes glazing over yet? Well, unglaze them — Oscar-winning screenwriters Nat Faxon and Jim Rash (perhaps better known to TV audiences from, respectively, Ben and Kate and Community) make a standout directorial debut with The Way Way Back (20th Century Fox Home Entertainment), a hilarious tale that gets the prickly-to-sweet balance just right. Duncan (Liam James) gets dragged to a seaside community for the summer with his mom Pam (Toni Collette) and her smarmy new boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carrell), but his world opens up when he takes a job at the local waterslide, run by the outgoing Owen (Sam Rockwell, totally channeling Bill Murray from Meatballs). It’s a pretty basic hook upon which...

Creator: Dan Harmon
Running Time: 285 minutes
Season 4 of Community has devided many viewers, with the majority declaring that it just isn’t as good as previous seasons. This can probably be attributed to series creator Dan Harmon being removed from the show in a creative capacity (set to return for Season 5), as well as a number of public bust-ups involving one of the show’s stars, Chevy Chase. The show has also been one of the biggest will-they won’t-they in terms of whether the network will renew it for another season. Such talks happen every year. Season 4 was delayed by NBC, meaning all the festive and holiday related episodes (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas) were shown at the wrong time of year. It’s not been a smooth road for »

Chicago – “The Way, Way Back” made a solid $21 million domestically but I kind of expected it to be an even bigger hit when I saw it back in January at the Sundance Film Festival. I saw several dozen films at this year’s fest and nothing produced a response like Nat Faxon & Jim Rash’s sweet, sentimental comedy. The audience I saw it with Loved it. And now that it’s on Blu-ray and DVD, I expect it to reach an even bigger audience through word-of-mouth recommendations. It’s a fun, clever movie with some great performances, including a supporting turn by Sam Rockwell that stands with the best of the year.
“The Way, Way Back” doesn’t do anything particularly new. It’s a classic coming-of-age story in the vein of “The Sure Thing” and “Adventureland.” It’s the way the story is told, with a very entertaining »

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week:
What's It About? James Wan's "The Conjuring" follows the paranormal hauntings of a Rhode Island farmhouse, based on the real life events documented by investigators of Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga). When the Perron family moves into a new home they begin experiencing loud pounding noises and eerie occurrences that force them to contact the Warren's to help rid them of their home's evil essence.
Why We're In: "The Conjuring" wasn't just one of the best scary movies in years for its hefty amount of solid jumps and scares, but it also took full advantage of the horror genre. Wan's film paid homage to old-school scary movies by implementing the horror tactics we love, bringing a refreshing creativity to exhausted cliches.

Season three of Community sees our favourite study group take on Biology 101 that involves: a sabotaged biology experiment, Jeff (Joel McHale) repeating ‘mitosis is’ over and over again and the untimely death of a classmate in a methlab explosion. Outside the classroom Troy (Donald Glover) grapples with the decision about whether to go to air conditioner school (headed up by the brilliant John Goodman as the vice-dean) and as the Dean (Jim Rash) is kidnapped by Chang (Ken Jeong) and his team of interns, the gang are expelled from the only place they have ever fit in, Greendale Community College.

Prince Avalanche, 2013.
Directed by David Gordon Green.
Two highway road workers spend the summer of 1988 away from their city lives. The isolated landscape becomes a place of misadventure as the men find themselves at odds with each other and the women they left behind.
1988. Texas. Fire ravages a Us woodland area, devastating lives of the people and wildlife in and around its path of destruction. As part of the rescue effort, local road painter Alvin (Paul Rudd) is asked to help reestablish some sort of order, and is sent into the woods to begin realigning the roads. In tow is the brother of his partner, Lance (Emile Hirsch), who like most bored adolescents just wants some money in his pocket for his weekends, which overflow with booze and women.
At the core of the film is loss. Loss of livelihoods, »
