Arrested Development Season 4 to Premiere on 4th May & Episode Titles Revealed

31 December 2012 2:42 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

[Updated] After officially announcing its return late last year, Arrested Development Season 4 went into production back in August, and things couldn’t be looking better. There’s no doubt that this is going to be one of the best things television has to offer in 2013.

Netflix acquired the rights to the new season last year, and are set to make it available in its entirety on the same day. And now that date has been announced as 4th May.

So if you’re reading this in the Us, you make sure that you go and watch Iron Man 3 on 3rd May, because you’re going to be too busy watching the awesomeness that is Arrested Development that Saturday.

Along with the season’s premiere date, the names of the episodes are reported to have been leaked, though have since officially been taken down. But via the folks at Bleeding Cool, »

Review: In Our Nature

13 December 2012 11:30 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

What's the nature of In Our Nature? Smart but rather dull, like a sophisticated person who needs better stories to tell.

I had hoped the producers of Meek's Cutoff and Wendy and Lucy -- two of my favorite quiet little movies -- would deliver another entertaining and keenly observant film with In Our Nature. But while Vincent Savino and Anish Savjani's new film says some compelling things about human relationships, it suffers from a plodding pace and only mildly interesting narrative.

In Our Nature is set entirely in an upstate New York weekend home, where young Brooklynites Seth (Zach Gilford) and Andie (Jena Malone) hope to spend a romantic weekend. Shortly after they arrive, Seth's long-estranged father, Gil (John Slattery), who owns the house, shows up unexpectedly with his much-younger girlfriend, Vicky (Gabrielle Union). Tempers flare immediately, as Seth and Gil blame each other for the scheduling mix-up.

Production on Arrested Development‘s “comeback” season has hit the pause button, but for the best of reasons — to bring you even more Bluth goodness.

As reported by our sister site Deadline, during the course of shooting the original 10-episode order for Netflix, Ad creator Mitch Hurwitz amassed more material than planned, as he dreamed up new scenes and story arcs on the fly.

In Our Nature | Review - SXSW Film 2012

11 December 2012 9:59 PM, PST | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Director: Brian Savelson Writer: Brian Savelson Starring: Zach Gilford, Jena Malone, John Slattery, Gabrielle Union Seth (Zach Gilford) and Andie (Jena Malone) are youthful sweethearts from Brooklyn who have made the trip upstate to Seth's family's lake house in the Catskills for a romantic weekend. The two have been together for a couple of years and Seth has decided it's time to pop the question so he's clandestinely brought a ring along and has big plans. Not long after settling in, the pair begin to unwind from their drive by undressing each other and rolling around on the floor only to be disturbed by the sound of a car pulling up to the house. It turns out it's none other than Gil (John Slattery), Seth's father, and his long-term (but unknown to Seth) girlfriend Vicky (Gabrielle Union), who are also looking forward to a romantic weekend getaway.

Q&A: Zach Gilford on 'Nature,' Family and 'Friday Night Lights'

7 December 2012 7:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

More likely than not, you know Zach Gilford best as Matt Saracen from "Friday Night Lights."

But, when he's not wearing a football uniform – or hospital scrubs, as the case has been on his subsequent television shows, "Off the Map" and this season's "Mob Doctor" – you might just find him in the woods. The 30-year-old actor considers himself an outdoorsman, spending his free time hiking, camping and the like, which worked out perfectly for his latest foray onto the big screen, "In Our Nature."

The movie follows Gilford's Seth and his girlfriend Andie (Jena Malone) as they head to Seth's "cabin" in upstate New York. Little do they know that Seth's somewhat estranged father ("Mad Men"'s John Slattery) and his city mouse girlfriend (Gabrielle Union) have similar plans. Needless to say, significant awkwardness ensues.

Thankfully, Gilford was able to flex some of those outdoor muscles in the film and »

John Slattery and Zach Gilford on In Our Nature, Meeting Dwyane Wade, and Zach’s Potential Mad Men Cameo

7 December 2012 6:15 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We once thought only in our dreams would Roger Sterling play father to Matt Saracen. But In Our Nature is as close as we'll get for now. The film, which opens today in New York and Austin, stars John Slattery and Zach Gilford as an estranged father and son who, unbeknownst to each other, both head up to the family cabin with their respective girlfriends at the same time. Slattery's character Gil and Vicky (Gabrielle Union) show up as Gilford's Seth and Andie (played by Jena Malone) are about to enjoy some cabin coitus, and that's only the beginning of the awkwardness. We caught up with the guys recently and learned about how they passed the time together in the woods for a month during filming (Union's boyfriend Dwyane Wade visited and lost to Gilford in Words With Friends) and whether we'll ever see the two reunite on Mad Men. »

Review: 'In Our Nature' An Exploration Of Discord & Dysfunction Backed By Strong Performances

7 December 2012 5:00 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If it weren’t for dysfunctional relationships, independent films might never have any stories to tell. “In Our Nature” is the latest in a long line of small-scale films about children who don’t get along with their parents, and the terms both come to in the process of a shared experience that throws them together – in predictably unwitting fashion, of course. But solid performances from the central quartet of actors, including Zack Gilford, Jena Malone, John Slattery and Gabrielle Union elevate Brian Savelson’s debut as a writer and director despite its familiarity as not just a story but almost an entire cinematic subgenre. Gilford (“Friday Night Lights”) and Malone (“Sucker Punch”) play Seth and Andie, a young couple from Brooklyn that drives up in the woods for a getaway in his family’s lake house. Shortly after they arrive, Seth’s dad Gil (Slattery) shows up with his girlfriend Vicky (Union) in tow, »

Forces of Nurture: Savelson’s Debut an Understated Ensemble of Well Tread Angst

For his feature film debut, Brian Savelson has acquired an impressive four person ensemble that examines everything from parent and child relationships, round two families, and even a nod to Chekov with some estate squabbles. There’s a definite sense, that only deepens as In Our Nature reaches its last lap, that this is familiar territory, a quartet of characters constantly undermining or over compensating in their surroundings as they navigate the miasma of the dysfunctional family discourse. While this doesn’t detract from Savelson’s well-written scenario, per se, there are several moments where we get lost in really caring how or why any of these people will ever resolve their personal issues.

Leaving behind Brooklyn for the weekend, aspiring chef Seth (Zach Gilford) takes longtime girlfriend Andie (Jena Malone) to his father’s cabin, which »
