'Hotwives of Orlando': How do you parody what's already ridiculous?

15 July 2014 2:12 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Look, I don’t want any drama—I don’t want any drama—but I’m also not totally on board with The Hotwives of Orlando, a new Bravo-spoofing comedy that debuted on Hulu at midnight Tuesday. (Hulu Plus subscribers can watch all seven 22-minute episodes right now; Hulu Plus-less plebes can only see the first two today, while the rest will be released on a week-to-week basis.)

The basic gist: A large ensemble of ladies you already love (or should love), including Casey Wilson, Kristen Schaal, and The Office’s Angela Kinsey, don an assortment of skintight dresses and »

Review: ‘The Hotwives of Orlando’

7 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

There are inherent problems with attempting to spoof reality TV: The genre so frequently borders on self-parody it’s difficult to outflank its extremes; plus, those who don’t watch the stuff probably won’t care, and those who avidly do don’t always have a terrific sense of humor about it. With that disclaimer, enter Hulu’s “The Hotwives of Orlando,” an impeccably cast takedown of the “Real Housewives” monster, with its players lustily chewing all the scenery they can swallow. Still, the half-hour episodes feel a bit like a “Saturday Night Live” sketch stretched to its limits — fun for a while, then a trifle repetitive.

Written by Dannah Phirman and Danielle Schneider, who also co-star in this Hulu original, the series features a half-dozen “hotwives,” each with their own peculiar tics, including the moronic men in their lives. There’s Veronica Von Vandervon (Andrea Savage), for example, who »

'Californication' the Final Season DVD Releases August 5th

2 July 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Take one last ride down the storied California coast when the sultry Showtime original comedy series Californication: The Final Season arrives on DVD August 5 from Showtime Networks, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution. David Duchovny, in his Golden Globe Award-winning performance, returns as fan-favorite lothario novelist Hank Moody in the final 12 episodes of the seventh season, arriving five weeks after the critically-acclaimed show's broadcast finale on June 29.

When the fast-living Hank left the literary haunts of New York for the pleasure-seeking splendors of La, he thought he'd have fame, fortune and the love of a good woman. Now his personal life is in shambles, his career is on the brink of self-destruction and he still just can't stop yielding to every temptation. The final season of Californication finds the incomparable Hank in the writer's room, as his never-released film Santa Monica Cop now becomes a television series of the same name. »

'Thelma & Louise' Stars Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis Reunite for 2014 Selfie

20 June 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Did Thelma & Louise invent the Selfie? That's the bold claim Susan Sarandon is making today as she reunites with co-star Geena Davis to reenact one of the more iconic scenes from their classic road drama. Check it out as the two stars prove they don't look a day older than when they shot the Ridley Scott movie, released in May of 1991.

Inventors of the #selfie at it again. #ThelmaAndLouisepic.twitter.com/1yvbF8j4fF

Susan Sarandon (@SusanSarandon) June 19, 2014

While the term Selfie is fairly new, gaining prominence in the past decade duo to the oversaturation of social media and teenagers obsessed with snapping photos of themselves, the act of holding a camera out to capture one's own image is a practice that has been around since the first instamatic camera became available at the local drug store.

While Thelma & Louise didn't invent the Selfie, they did popularize the photographic act »

Inside 'Californication' and 'Louie' Actress Pamela Adlon's Nsfw World

17 June 2014 7:40 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

When Pamela Adlon's oldest daughter was going into middle school, the actress suffered a mini-meltdown. Another mom had said that she allowed her children – a seventh grader and a nine-year-old – to watch Californication, the sexually explicit Showtime comedy series about debauched yet well-meaning novelist, Hank Moody (played by David Duchovny) and his equally depraved friends, one of whom is the professional pubic-hair waxer Marcy Runkle, played by Adlon. "I was thinking, 'How is she explaining "stunt cock" to her kid – or is she not?'" Adlon says in her »

How the Creators of Ben Stiller-Produced 'Next Time on Lonny' Blended Every Genre For Their Web Series Satire (Exclusive Clip)

4 June 2014 3:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The first season of the web series "Next Time On Lonny" was a relatively humble affair -- created independently by Alex Anfanger and Dan Schimpf, the show featured Anfanger as a reality TV star whose adventures springboard to all sorts of insane genre combinations, from murder to time travel to alien invasions.  For its second season, however, Lonny's made it to the big time. It's all thanks to Ben Stiller's Red Hour Productions and YouTube distribution powerhouse Maker Studios, which have teamed up for 10 new episodes that span nearly every genre you can think of, from "Drive" to "The Wolf of Wall Street" to the post-apocalypse. There's even an interactive episode, an installment shot entirely in the first person and a packed roster of guest stars, including Adam Scott, Patton Oswalt, Jerry O'Connell, Kal Penn and Stephen Tobolowsky.  "Lonny," in short, is a stunning trip through pop culture tropes, »

Photos From 2008 Justice League Movie That Never Happened

9 April 2014 5:37 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Choreographer Greg Van Borssum posted a few photos of the cast for the $200 million "Justice League" movie that Warner Bros was developing back in 2007 with director George Miller (Mad Max, Happy Feet). Check out the photos below. At the time, "Superman Returns" flopped in theaters, which is why the studio recast Superman with DJ Cotrona and hired Armie Hammer as Batman, despite the fact that Christian Bale was still playing the character in "The Dark Knight" trilogy. Other cast members included Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman. Not in the photos are Common as John Stewart (aka Green Lantern), Anton Yelchin as Wally West, Zoe Kazan as Iris West and Stephen Tobolowsky as Alfred Pennyworth. The film obviously never happened and Warner Bros is now »

Check Out the 'Justice League' Cast from Unmade George Miller Movie

7 April 2014 5:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hollywood stuntman and choreographer Greg van Borssum is offering up a piece of 'what if' Hollywood history today, as he shares photos of the Justice League cast assembling for Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller's canceled adaptation.

Way back in 2007, after Superman Returns proved to be a disappointment, Warner Bros. planned to move forward on a Justice League movie that recast the Man of Steel with D.J. Cotrona and gave us a new Batman in Armie Hammer, even though Christian Bale was in the midst of his The Dark Knight trilogy at the same time. Also seen in the first photo are (from bottom) director George Miller, Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter. Next row finds Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, stuntman Greg van Borssum, and producer Barrie M.

Justice League Cast Assembled... For George Miller's Cancelled Film (Bts Photos)

7 April 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

As far I believe, these images posted by Hollywood stuntman and fight choreographer, Greg Van Borssum, are the first behind-the-scenes look at George Miller's Justice League: Mortal cast. You can see: Armie Hammer ("The Lone Ranger") who would've played Batman, Adam Brody ("The O.C.") who would've been The Flash, D.J. Cotrona ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") who would've played Superman, Megan Gale ("Project Runway Australia") who would've played Wonder Woman, Santiago Cabrera ("Heroes") who would've played Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne ("Mad Max: Fury Road") who would've played The Martian Manhunter, Teresa Palmer ("The Grudge 2") who would've played Talia Al Ghul and Jay Baruchel ("Goon") who would've played Maxwell Lord. Only main cast members not included in the images below are Common (John Stewart), Anton Yelchin (Wally West), Zoe Kazan (Iris West) and Stephen Tobolowsky (Alfred Pennyworth). In February of 2007, Warner Bros. hired Keiran and Michelle Mulroney to write a script »

Sundance Presents Cross-Section of U.S. Indie Fare, Music-Themed Pix at London Festival

24 March 2014 4:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — As the lineup for the third Sundance London film and music festival is unveiled, Variety talks to John Cooper, director of the Sundance Film Festival, and Trevor Groth, Sundance’s director of programming, about the selection (see below for full lineup).

Sundance London, which runs April 25-27, will include 21 feature films and 18 shorts across five sections, as well as live performances by a number of musical acts, which will be linked to movies screening at the fest, and a series of panel discussions.

Cooper says that when Robert Redford and the Sundance team set up the London event, one of their motivations was to give added exposure to U.S. indie films in the international market.

“We realized that the international life of an American independent film was crucial to its success,” he says. The London fest’s creation was partly driven by an impulse to do “anything we »

Here's to Harold Ramis: Film Independent and Jason Reitman Provide Us With a Lesson on Coping

21 March 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Tonight, is for Harold Ramis," Jason Reitman declared upon taking the stage at yesterday's Film Independent at Lacma Live Read. Reitman, whose father Ivan Reitman, collaborated with Ramis on "Animal House" and the "Ghostbusters" films, chose an earlier draft of the "Groundhog Day" script for the performance -- a much darker draft in which Bill Murray’s character, Phil, actively counts the number of times he has re-lived February 2, Groundhog Day.As previously announced via Reitman's Twitter, the roles of Phil and Rita were performed by Jason Bateman and Elizabeth Reaser, while Jeff Ross and Mae Whitman provided the voices for Wpbh-TV9 cameraman Larry, Nancy Taylor and a host of other supporting characters.Stephen Tobolowsky's participation, however, came as a pleasant surprise. Tobolowsky, who originated the role of "Needlenose" Ned Ryerson, reprised his role onstage for last night's live read with just as much gusto as ever. His initial »

Jason Bateman, Jason Reitman Honor Harold Ramis at Live Read of ‘Groundhog Day’

21 March 2014 8:57 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Film Independent at Lacma’s Live Read performances are always special – cold recitations of classic screenplays, the readings are never rehearsed, recorded, or repeated. But Thursday night’s live read of the existentialist comedy “Groundhog Day,” directed and co-written by the late Harold Ramis, had a particularly special, melancholy tinge.

After a short introduction from Film Independent at Lacma curator Elvis Mitchell, who called the pic “the closest we’ve come to having a Frank Capra film for the modern era,” director and series creator Jason Reitman spoke of his admiration for Ramis, who collaborated with his father Ivan Reitman on five projects.

“I was 12 days old on the set of ‘Animal House,’” Reitman recalled. “Think about that.”

Following his brief remarks, Reitman introduced the night’s cast, which included Jason Bateman in Bill Murray’s Phil Connors role, Elizabeth Reaser as Andie MacDowell’s Rita, Jeff Ross as Chris Elliott’s Larry, »

Watch: Kickstarted Stephen Tobolowsky Doc Gets a Teaser Trailer

20 March 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last month we told you about SlashFilm's endeavor to take the stories of character actor Stephen Tobolowsky that have made their podcast The Tobolowsky Files so entertaining and turn them into concert documentary film. The project, tentatively titled The Primary Instinct, has already met and exceeded its goal on Kickstarter, but you can still support the film with donations if you want (movies are expensive after all). As part of development, SlashFilm and podcast creator/host David Chen have teamed with a production company called  Super Frog Saves Tokyo, and they've made a teaser for the doc. Watch! Here's the teaser trailer for SlashFilm's Stephen Tobolowsky movie The Primary Instinct: As you can see, Tobolowsky has been all over the place, and he has some great stories to tell. The trailer was made for free just as a sort of test to show how cool this little project can be. »
