Specialty Box Office Preview: James Gandolfini’s ‘The Drop’, ‘The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them’, More
The upcoming weekend boasts an onslaught of new Specialty titles vying for audiences. In all likelihood, however, many will have a short big screen life as the fall’s awards contenders ramp up and crowd others out. Five of this week’s dozen-plus newcomers are spotlighted here with Fox Searchlight’s The Drop edging on a wide release. The feature starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini will bow in over 800 theaters. TWC’s The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby also joins the fray with a platform release. The film also has two accompanying titles told from the perspective of its two main characters, which will be released in more limited runs in October. Magnolia will open its thriller Honeymoon in a day and date release while Dada Films’ Swearnet: The Movie breaks a movie record with the most F-bombs ever. And Cohen Media Group’s My Old Lady bowed Wednesday in limited release.

Swearnet: The Movie Brags About Its Profanity But Still Sucks

To say that Canadian comedy hits rock bottom in this abhorrent meta-infomercial for a Funny or Die-like network boasting uncensored online content is the politest way to describe two ugly hours of smug, doughy misogynists saying "fuck" some 935 record-breaking times.

(As shocking as and less funny than a novelty hand buzzer, Swearnet also tallies 76 "shits" and 79 "cocks," according to its marketing material.) Unlike the perpetually wasted Nova Scotia dirtbags they play in the mockumentary franchise Trailer Park Boys, bafflingly successful stars and co-writers Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay, and Mike Smith here portray ego-fueled fantasy caricatures of their real selves.

They're tired of signing so many autographs, the women in their lives are either sub...

Fall Movie Preview: September 2014
The summer movie season is officially over, and this weekend we finally head into fall. Most of these impending new releases are vying for that elusive Oscar gold or any other semi-prestigious award being presented. We start this cinematic journey by looking at all the upcoming movies September has to offer. This first fall month is a little overcrowded, promising a fine mix of genre fare. We have a couple of Academy worthy dramas making their debut, an untested family franchise starter, a handful of comedies, yet another Ya novel adaptation, an action epic based on a cult classic TV show, the return of an iconic trio and one independent coming-of-age shocker that promises to push the boundaries of everything that has arrived before it. Hold onto your seats...

Here's What's New on Netflix for September 2014

It's almost September, which means a whole new slew of titles on Netflix! August proved pretty lucrative on the quality title front, but it looks as though September it's going to blow the rundown out of the water.

TV takes spotlight this month, with the latest full seasons of "The Walking Dead," "New Girl," "The League," "The Blacklist," "Arrow," "Bones," and "Parks and Recreation" primed and ready for streaming before their fall premieres. And fans still mourning the loss of "How I Met Your Mother" (in more ways than one) can rewatch the ninth and final season to their heart's content. Ah, memories. Showtime's recently departed "Californication" can be seen in its entirety (Seasons 1 -7) as well, starting September 1. That's a lot of TV.

Movie fans have plenty to look forward to from Netflix in September, too. Sam Raimi's undersung 1998 thriller "A Simple Plan" hits the streaming service September

'Swearnet': Mike Smith, Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay Take on Censors (Nsfw Video)

  • Moviefone
*** Warning: Very Explicit Video -- Foul Language And Nudity ***

The Boys are back -- but not in the roles you're used to.

In "Swearnet," John Paul Tremblay, Robb Wells and Mike Smith play themselves -- three guys burnt out on the idea of being known solely as the Trailer Park Boys, who want to try something new.

That something new is Swearnet, a website/streaming video network showcasing the mischief and debauchery that only the Boys could get up to. Yes, it exists in real life, and "Swearnet" the movie is a fictional rundown of how the idea began.

For those of you unfamiliar with Tremblay, Wells and Smith, please be advised the video is not for the weak -- there is so much swearing it's pretty much every second word. Sometimes every word. Plus, we meet "Swearnet" mascot Swearman, who's ... oh, you have to see for yourself.

TNT Considers a “Major Crime” Spin-Off and John Barrowman Wants a New “Arrow” Costume

News

For three seasons now, RuPaul’s Drag Race has announced its winner at a reunion special. Does that make it the best reality show with the worst finale? While I preferred the old way of announcing a winner, I don’t miss the “surprise” of seeing someone like Tyra Sanchez take the crown.

TVLine reports that TNT is developing a spin-off series of Major Crimes, one that sounds more like a spin-off of The Closer. The series will focus on Jon Tenney‘s Special Agent Fritz Howard. An episode in the upcoming season will set it up. TVLine says there’s also talk of a spin-off focusing on Malcolm-Jamal Warner‘s character from last season.

During the WGA strike a few years back, one break from reality TV I found was Corner Gas, a charming Canadian sitcom that found a home on Wgn. Now there’s a movie in

'Trailer Park Boys 3: Don't Legalize It': Ricky, Julian and Bubbles Encourage You To Go See It (Video)

  • Moviefone
Canada's favourite trio is back on the big screen with "Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It," and it's almost like they never left us.

After taking a brief hiatus from the world of cinema, Ricky, Julian and Bubbles have returned to tell the story of how they all found their way back to each other. At the start of the movie, things aren't looking good: Bubbles is living under J-Rock's porch, Julian is selling "clean" pee for drug tests, and Ricky is relatively successful with his marijuana grow-op business -- until the Canadian government says they're contemplating legalizing the drug, thus rendering his livelihood obsolete.

Moviefone Canada caught up with the boys at their Toronto hotel to talk about "Don't Legalize It," Toronto Mayor Rob Ford running for re-election, and their thoughts on Justin Bieber's legal troubles.

"Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It"

Sneak Peek footage from the third "Trailer Park Boys" comedy feature film, titled "Don't Legalize It", directed by Mike Clattenburg, based on the Canadian 'mockumentary' TV series "Trailer Park Boys", starring Robb Wells as 'Ricky', John Paul Tremblay as 'Julian' and Mike Smith as 'Bubbles':

"...out of jail and broke, 'Julian' concocts an outrageously greasy scheme to get rich and, to make it even greasier, he will have to deliver his product to his arch-enemy, 'Cyrus', who's waiting in Montreal to close the dirty deal. Meanwhile, the dope growing business run by 'Ricky' is under a major threat when the government announces a plan to legalize marijuana, so he heads to Ottawa to make an impassioned plea - in the way only Ricky can - 'Say No to Decriminalization'.
