New Images From The Wet Hot American Summer Prequel

24 May 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It might have been more of a post-cinema release cult hit, but Wet Hot American Summer boasted so much comedy acting talent packed into its cast that it was somehow natural that someone would try to bring it back. That someone was Netflix, which commissioned follow-up series First Day Of Camp, which will arrive on the streaming service in July. The first full batch of images from the show is now online.  The series, according to co-writer/director David Wain, is “a prequel to the original movie. In real life we’re 15 years older but in the show we’re playing two months younger. The movie took place on the last day of camp in the summer of 1981. The show takes place on the first day.”Pretty much the entire original cast – which included Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, Christopher Meloni and Molly Shannon – is back for this one, »

First-Look: Cooper, Poehler, Rudd & more go back in time for ‘Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp’

22 May 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd are returning to the scene of their 2001 comedy Wet Hot American Summer. The original saw many of Hollywood’s best and brightest populate a Jewish summer camp in a spoof of 1980s teen movies.

Now Netflix have produced an eight-episode prequel series, and released the following images of the cast in unbridled hormonal action for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp

The show sees many of the now-middle-aged cast reprise their randy teen roles, only several weeks younger! Pictured beneath the top shot of Poehler and Cooper are: Elizabeth Banks, Molly Shannon, Janeane Garofalo and of course Rudd giving a lucky girl the backrub from Hell.

Other actors who’ve agreed to revisit their misspent onscreen youths include David Hyde Pierce and Marisa Ryan. Fellow camper Michael Showalter is back to co-write the script with Whas director David Wain. More pictures can be found here. »

The Fault in Our Stars gets a dark comedy twist in new Me & Earl & the Dying Girl trailer

22 May 2015 2:58 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Fault in Our Stars gets a darkly comic twist in the movie adaptation of Jesse Andrews's novel Me & Earl & the Dying Girl.

Greg Gaines (Thomas Mann) is an awkward Pittsburgh high school student whose dreary life changes forever when he's pushed into comforting a dying classmate named Rachel (Olivia Cooke).

The aspiring filmmaker Greg and his best friend Earl (Ronald Cyler II) decide that the best way to help Rachel through her final months is to make her the star of their next movie.

Andrews has adapted his debut novel for the big screen, with directing duties going to American Horror Story's Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.

The film took the prestigious Us Dramatic Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival earlier in the year.

The ensemble cast for the comedy includes Connie Britton, SNL's Molly Shannon, Nick Offerman and The Walking Dead star Jon Bernthal.

Reboots have gotten pretty annoying in their excess, but we are not complaining about this one. David Wain and Michael Showalter are offering up a 8 episode prequel to their cult classic 2001 movie "Wet Hot American Summer," and the gang is all here: Janeane Garofalo, Bradley Cooper (hopefully offering up more of the man-on-man action he had in the movie), Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni, Ken Marino, Elizabeth Banks and Michael Ian Black all return, while Jon Hamm, Josh Charles, Chris Pine and Kristen Wiig are among the newcomers. We could not be more excited, especially now that those first official images have been released... "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp" arrives on July 31st on Netflix.

Netflix has released the first images from its Wet Hot American Summer revival series, First Day at Camp, and they are everything fans could hope for.

All of the film's original cast will be returning, including 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, as previously reported, other returning actors are H. Jon BenjaminNina HellmanA.D. MilesMarisa RyanKevin Sussman, and David Wain (who will again write and direct, with Showalter serving as showrunner). New cast members will include Michaela Watkins, Josh Charles, John Slattery »

See Awesome First Photos for 'Wet Hot American Summer' Prequel

22 May 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Who's ready for another "Wet Hot American Summer"? It's almost Memorial Day, so it's the perfect time for a taste of the wonderful hot mess coming from Netflix in "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp." The first "Wet Hot" movie came out in 2001, showing the last day of camp in the summer of 1981. This new eight-episode series actually takes place on the first day of camp -- so it's a prequel set two months earlier, even though the characters are all about 15 years older. That's just going to add to the hilarity of a series that is already destined to be the best thing we see this summer.

"First Day of Camp" reunites the original cast, including Bradley Cooper, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Michael Showalter, Marguerite Moreau, Paul Rudd, Zak Orth, Elizabeth Banks, Micahel Ian Black, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Molly Shannon, and Amy Poehler. »

“Hey, let’s all promise that in 10 years from today, we’ll meet again, and we’ll see what kind of people we’ve blossomed into.”

Ok, so it’s been more than 10 years since that line was spoken in Michael Showalter and David Wain’s ’80s throwback camp comedy “Wet Hot American Summer,” but that doesn’t mean fans are any less excited for the Netflix prequel series, “Wet Hot Americann Summer: First Day of Camp.” Just in time for Memorial Day, Netflix has released cast photos from the upcoming series that show Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni and more embracing their Camp Firewood roots.

Watch: High School, Romance, And Cancer Come Together In New Trailer For 'Me And Earl And The Dying Girl'

20 May 2015 6:21 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Coming-of-age, cancer, romance, and trying to survive the complex world of high school? It sounds like a manipulative concoction, one pre-mixed to score maximum tears, but the buzz on "Me And Earl And The Dying Girl" is the complete opposite. In fact, we wrote in our review out of Sundance—where the movie picked up the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award—that this "wonderfully funny, bittersweet, and inventive picture will headlock even the most cynical-hearted viewer and turn him or her into emotional mush." Sounds good to me and a new trailer for the movie has arrived hitting all of those buttons hard. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, and starring Thomas MannOlivia Cooke, R.J. Cyler, Nick OffermanMolly ShannonJon Bernthal, and Connie Britton, the film tells the story of Greg, and his pal Earl who come together and make life just a little better for Rachel, »

Second Trailer for Sundance Fave 'Me and Earl and the Dying Girl'

20 May 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We make films. We've been making them since we were little..." Fox Searchlight has debuted a second charming trailer for Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, it's actually a UK trailer (hence two quotes from UK outlets), but it's still just as charming. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is one of our favorite films from Sundance 2015 this January, and it's one we hope finds its audience when it hits theaters this summer. Thomas Mann stars as Greg along with Olivia Cooke, plus Rj Cyler as Earl, and appearances by Connie Britton, Nick Offerman, Molly Shannon and Jon Bernthal. Don't skip out on this one, it really is something special and we'll be supporting the film all the way through release. Enjoy! Here's the second trailer for Alfonso Gomez-Rejon's Me and Earl and the Dying Girl via YouTube: Read Alex's review of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl »

New Me And Earl And The Dying Girl Trailer Goes Heavy on Jokes, Emotion

20 May 2015 10:56 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fox Searchlight and Indian Paintbrush have released a new international trailer for Me and Earl and the Dying Girl. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (American Horror Story), the film was this year’s big winner at the Sundance Film Festival, following in the footsteps of Whiplash and Fruitvale Station by taking home both the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award. I was one of those that caught the movie at Sundance and yeah, it’s really, really good. Based on the Jesse Andrews novel of the same name, the film revolves around a Criterion Collection-obsessed high school senior (Thomas Mann) who is talked into spending time with an acquaintance classmate (Olivia Cooke) who has recently been diagnosed with cancer. It’s a film that wears its heart on its sleeve, but if you refuse the need to be cynical for two hours, it’ll hit you with an emotional gut punch. »

First Me And Earl And The Dying Girl Clip Explains a Unique Friendship

14 May 2015 1:34 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fox Searchlight has released the first Me and Earl and the Dying Girl clip online. The film is an adaptation of the Jesse Andrews novel of the same name and revolves around a Criterion Collection-obsessed high school senior (Thomas Mann) who is talked into spending time with an acquaintance classmate (Olivia Cooke) who has recently been diagnosed with cancer. In this clip, we get a look at why Rj Cyler, who plays Earl, is such a scene-stealer with his insightful, deadpan, and funny observations about a friend who’s afraid of friendship. While I’m sure this is a movie that will have knives out from cynics (who aren’t necessarily wrong, but they’re making an active decision to slice up an earnest movie), I hope it’s as big a hit with audiences as it was when it received a lot of love at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. »
