Netflix announces cast for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, teaser released

29 January 2015 2:28 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for its new eight-episode mini-series prequel Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, reports Deadline.

The short, 1-minute teaser shows the two cabins of the New England Camp Firewood, the setting of the original cult movie from 2001, created by Michael Showalter and David Wain, who both return for the new limited series. In addition, the teaser confirms the cast who are returning to the show, with many of the big names who were originally involved returning.

The 15-strong cast is certainly impressive, and will feature such names as Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Janeane Garafalo, David Hyde-Pierce, Molly Shannon, Ken Marino and Christopher Meloni, as well as new additions Lake Bell, John Slattery, Randall Park, Richard Schiff and Jayma Mays, amongst others.

Alan Cumming Celebrated His 50th Birthday in a Speedo

28 January 2015 1:55 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

As Molly Shannon's famous Saturday Night Live character Sally O'Malley would say, "I'm Fifty!" Alan Cumming celebrated his 50th birthday this week by partying at Studio 54 wearing only a Speedo (what else would you expect from him, right?). The Cabaret star, whose actual birthday was yesterday, took to Instagram the other day to share a funny party pic of him nearly sporting his birthday suit. "This is what fifty looks like!" the always-colorful Scottish star captioned the b-day photo. In the snapshot, Cumming shows off his body in just a tiny red Speedo, a matching headband and some party necklaces. The birthday boy flashes a smile while sitting on the shoulders of a male »

Sundance Festival: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl becomes breakout hit at the fest

28 January 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

The tale of a loner who befriends a fellow high school student with leukemia has become the breakout hit of theSundance Film Festival.

Fox Searchlight bought Me and Earl and the Dying Girl after its well-received premiere Sunday for a reported $12 million, a record price for a Sundance movie.

The film stars Thomas Mann as Greg Gaines - the "me" in the title, and British actress Olivia Cooke is the "dying girl," while newcomer Rj Cyler is "Earl" - Gaines' best friend. The audience at Sundance's Eccles theatre gave the film a five-minute standing ovation as credits rolled.

"It was really emotional. We had seen the movie before but obviously it's a really different experience seeing it with a huge group of people who have no idea what they're about to see. And then the credits start rolling and everyone stands up and starts clapping. I mean, you start bawling. »

First Teaser Trailer for Wet Hot American Summer Netflix Series

28 January 2015 9:32 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

When David Wain directed 2001's Wet Hot American Summer, there's no way he could have known that half of the cast of his cult comedy would blow up and become major players in Hollywood. But a sequel has been whispered about for a long time, and now it's finally happening this summer as an eight-episode series on Netflix. The first teaser trailer for the show has been released, and it confirms the original cast is returning: Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter.

And the best part? Even though the actors have aged fourteen years since the original's release, this series is going to be a prequel. What a genuinely great idea — I can't wait to head back to camp.

Someone find the phone! The Camp Firewood counselors always said they would meet again 10 years after their last day at camp, but it looks like they're going back in time instead. That's right. The cast of the 2001 cult-classic comedy Wet Hot American Summer is set to reprise their roles as some of the worst camp counselors in history. But instead of picking up after the last day of camp in 1981, the new Netflix series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp appears to be taking the Camp Firewood staff all the way back to the beginning of their summer of debauchery. »

28 January 2015 6:52 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Even though news surfaced that the entire cast of Wet Hot American Summer was set to return for Netflix’s original TV series, it wasn’t officially confirmed by the streaming network until it released a 50-second teaser touting most of the original stars’ names.

The returning cast includes: Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter.

While the teaser didn’t offer much outside of the cast names and an official synopsis, which states it will take place on the first day of Camp Firewood’s most famous summer, it did remind us of the star-studded power that will soon be reuniting for eight episodes.
