From ‘Big Sick’ to ‘Downsizing,’ Studios and Indies Stake Claim for Globes Comedy Gold

From ‘Big Sick’ to ‘Downsizing,’ Studios and Indies Stake Claim for Globes Comedy Gold
From popular Sundance pickups to prestige awards bait, this year’s Golden Globes race for comedy/musical picture promises a solid balance of indie gems and studio offerings — and less category shopping.

Almost every major studio is in the mix with a serious contender. Two of them are musicals (three if you want to get technical). Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” could be the biggest box office story in the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.’s nominations. Though critics were lukewarm, the film made a truckload of cash off an intellectual property that, let’s face it, was ripe for a live-action remake. Fox’s contribution, meanwhile, will be “The Greatest Showman,” inspired by the life of P.T. Barnum. But a nomination for star Hugh Jackman might be easier to come by than one for best picture; the film is being positioned more as a holiday family movie than a serious awards play.

Q&A: Marvin Young (aka Young Mc) Discusses Making His Directorial Debut with Justice Served

  • DailyDead
One of my all-time favorite movie scenes is when John Candy walks through the house party in Uncle Buck while Young Mc's "Bust a Move" is blasting out of the speakers, so it was an absolute thrill for me to catch up with Young Mc himself, Marvin Young, to discuss his directorial debut Justice Served, a new "what if?" horror thriller that co-stars Lance Henriksen and is out now on DVD and VOD from Breaking Glass Pictures.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Marvin, and congratulations on your new film, Justice Served. How and when did you come up with the idea for the movie?

Baby Driver Track List Revealed, Time To Rock Out!

The Guardians of the Galaxy films are famous for incorporating classic tracks into the films' scenes and narrative -- nothing beats watching Kurt Russell talk his way through 'Brandy (You're A Fine Girl)' by Looking Glass. James Gunn is not the only director who very carefully considers every track, writes to the music he has picked, and seamlessly weaves it into his films. Edgar Wright has been obsessed with his musical choices since his TV show Spaced, with the following soundtracks for Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End, and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World all including some pretty deep cuts that make for fine listening, long after you've seen the film.

Baby Driver is Wright's next film, and the latest trailer not only included 'Tequila' by The Champs, but was also titled "Official TeKillYah Trailer" to put further emphasis on the music. The trailer also sports

'Cool as Ice': The Story Behind Vanilla Ice's Career-Killing Movie
Earlier this month, when Vanilla Ice announced via Twitter that he was boldly defying instructions to evacuate his Florida home in the face of Hurricane Matthew, it not only inspired what had to be the greatest (and possibly also the most depressing) tweet ever made by the Florida Democratic Party, but it also made one hope that it might really be a sneaky promo for an upcoming Weather Channel series wherein the rapper and reality TV star goes head to head with natural disasters.
