Old 97’s has just released their latest album, “Graveyard Whistling.” And to celebrate it, the band has shared a satirical video for the song “Good With God,” which features two very special guests: comedian Fred Armisen and “The Office” actress Jenna Fischer.
Fisher plays the very serious and impatient host of the fictional program “An Hour and 60 Minutes,” while Armisen comes in to substitute the band’s drummer, Philip Peeples, who could not make it to the taping. Armisen keeps interrupting the interview with his unwelcome comments and even takes a phone call in the middle of the interview, prompting Fisher to scold him. Afterwards, the alt-country band goes on to perform “Good With God” with Armisen playing the drums for real. The video was directed by Lee Kirk.

Murtada here. On twitter the CEO of the French distributor Mars, which usually distributes Woody Allen movies in France, announced that the title of his 2017 film is Wonder Wheel. It stars Kate Winslet and Justin Timberlake (playing a lifeguard, if those set photos are to be believed), as well as Juno Temple, Jim Belushi and Max Casella. The film was partly shot in Coney Island so we assume that the title refers to Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park. July is our annual date with Woody so expect a Us release announcement soon.
If this title holds it’ll mark the 4th movie scheduled for release this year that contains the word “wonder” in its title. We don’t have to remind you of our most anticipated film of the year, Todd Haynes’ Wonderstruck. There’s of course Wonder Woman.

The “Bob’s Burgers Music Album” is coming your way May 12, and it’s loaded up with more goodies than a Poutine on the Ritz Burger.
This is not the time to be modern and go the digital route for your music. Hell, even buying the CDs isn’t old-school enough. Instead, if you buy the the “Bob’s Burgers Music Album” deluxe limited-edition gift box, that comes with three LPs (in “condiment-colored” vinyl?!), a Bob’s Buskers seven-inch white vinyl LP, a hardbound lyric book (for those times you need to know more than just “Butts, Butts, Butts”), a sheet music collection, three original posters and a lot more. What is “more” you ask? Take a look at the unboxing video below featuring Teddy’s hairy arms and mumbly narration to see everything:
Of course, the two-cd album is still chockfull of “Bob’s Burgers” audio goodness, which amounts to 107 songs. »

“Alien: Covenant,” one of the summer’s most anticipated blockbusters, has revealed a tantalizing sneak peek of the cast via a five-minute prologue, which shows a jovial spaceship crew shooting the shit before the inevitable mayhem we all know and love from the “Alien” franchise.
Titled “Prologue: Last Supper,” the crew is all coupled up and enjoying some last-minute debauchery before they head off to parts unknown. Even though the scene is loose enough to justify leaving it out of the theatrical cut, it’s a great showcase for the easygoing energy between cast members, including charming performances from a sleepy James Franco, a drunken Danny McBride, android bro Michael Fassbender, and Ripley archetype Katherine Waterston.
While things are jovial, there is a nice sense of dread as the crew gets ready for cryosleep, »

James Franco’s adaptation of John Steinbeck’s “In Dubious Battle” is currently in limited release, and it isn’t the only thing directed by the multi-multi-hyphenate you can watch right now. Franco has also directed the video for “Girls on T.V.,” the lead single from Tashaki Miyaki’s debut album “The Dream.” Watch it below.
Juno Temple (“Black Mass,” “Killer Joe,” “Maleficent”) stars in the video; Franco describes her role as “an innocent soul seeing Hollywood for the first time” in a statement. Full of words superimposed on the screen in neon letters, the video finds Temple’s cowboy hat–wearing newcomer strolling through Hollywood on a dark, dreamy night. The director lists “Midnight Cowboy,” “Fallen Angels” and Robert Redford’s “Electric Horseman” as influences on his latest endeavor.

Even at 81 years young, Woody Allen’s work rate continues to be the stuff of legend. For generations, the prolific filmmaker has operated at a remarkably brisk clip, churning out one quirky feature after another, and culminating with the release of last year’s somewhat forgettable romantic dramedy Café Society.
But a mixed reception has never stopped Allen before and sure enough, the director is behind the lens once again for Wonder Wheel, a 1950s-set period drama in which Justin Timberlake takes point as a lifeguard. Seen above alongside Juno Temple and the Oscar-winning Kate Winslet, Timberlake’s character will reportedly have some sort of romantic dalliance with Winslet’s, while Tony Sirico’s mysterious character is the one threatening to throw a spanner in the works.

Another period piece is coming our way from writer-director Woody Allen. We know little about his latest movie, titled Wonder Wheel, which is typical of Allen’s movies. Rarely are character and plot details shared early on. But we do know his latest film stars Justin Timberlake, Kate Winslet, and Juno Temple and it takes place in the 1950s. Below, […]

Although it hasn’t been officially announced by U.S. distributor Amazon Studios yet, if history repeats itself, a new Woody Allen film will arrive this summer. It’s also the most fitting release window in some time for the director as his next feature takes place in the summer days of the 1950s, specifically in Coney Island. Although no more plot details beyond the setting have been revealed, the newly announced title should be of no surprise to those familiar with the Brooklyn locale.
Titled Wonder Wheel, it takes its name from Deno’s amusement park located there, whose circular main attraction opened back in 1920. This title was revealed by Mars Film CEO Stephane Celerier (via Woody Allen Pages), so presumably they’ll reunite with Allen to distribute his latest film in France once again.

A new year is upon us, which means Woody Allen has a fresh feature film on the way. As per usual, he keeps everything under lock and key until he’s ready for the world to see it, but Italian distributor Lucky Red has revealed the goods just a little bit early.
