Comic-Con 2014: Hollywood’s Highs, Lows and No-Shows

12 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the place where Hollywood now launches the marketing campaigns around its upcoming films, TV shows and videogames — like “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” to smaller films like “The Giver” and “Horns,” along with new and returning TV shows “Game of Thrones,” “Flash” and “Gotham” — this year’s Comic-Con revealed the runaway successes and upcoming headaches for the industry’s marketers.

Here are the biggest takeaways from the fanfest that wrapped Sunday:

“Jupiter” Descending: Warner Bros. had a bigger problem beyond the need to complete special effects sequences when it made a last minute decision to move sci-fi actioner “Jupiter Ascending” from the summer to February 2015: a lack of interest in the movie. A trip to San Diego’s Comic-Con won’t help. A presentation in which star Channing Tatum’s mic didn’t work and the Wachowski siblings weren’t present, »

Mad Max” Rules: For a film that didn’t have much interest in it going into Comic-Con, George Miller’s “Mad Max” (pictured, above) played huge for Warner Bros., earning raves from the thousands who watched the first trailer and action sequences from the film that rumbles into theaters next year, spreading positive word-of-mouth like wild fire across social media platforms. It’s certainly the darling of this year’s Con. »

Through a Timeline Darkly: Pop Culture and Community

21 July 2014 4:45 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Community has become one of the icons of pop culture skewering in the modern age. Ask anyone online, not in person of course, about the phrase Six Seasons And A Movie and they can place it at the NBC sitcom’s feet, and the vocal fans that used it as an online mantra to see the show reach the goals jokingly mentioned in a season 2 clip show episode with regards to a one season show called The Cape that once aired on the network.

Such is the way that Community integrates itself in the nerdiest areas of the internet, and takes pot-shots at other elements in the zeitgeist, turning them into something entirely brilliant within the show and making one find it hard to watch any attempts at a trope or genre straight ever again. Such examples of Community at its best pop-culture and film/tv skewering are:

Community's Yvette Nicole Brown shows Twitter troll the meaning of love

4 July 2014 7:11 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Yvette Nicole Brown, known as Shirley from the TV show Community, has a legion of fans, and one hater she loves no less

More coverage of Melbourne's Oz Comic Con 2014

You rarely ask a pleasantry like how was your flight? and hear a reply that made national news. But a few days ago, Yvette Nicole Brown, better known as Shirley Bennett of the television show Community, was on board a Qantas flight from Los Angeles that began flooding one hour after takeoff. She says a trickle, like spilled soda, quickly turned into a gushing river.

It happened while we were still ascending and being on the top level of a double decker plane, we thought, oh god where is all this water going? And sure enough it ended up seeping through the floor and raining on the people in the level below, Brown tells me over the phone.

Community Heads Towards 6 Seasons (And A Movie)

2 July 2014 12:17 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

On June 30th, mere hours before the cast’s contracts were up, fans all but assumed that the show would officially end at the cusp of its much proclaimed #SixSeasonsandaMovie goal. The goal, which began as a joke in Season 2′s episode Paradigms of Human Memory and grew into a social media staple, became more and more tangible as the series moved through its third, fourth, and fifth season. After years of narrow ratings, however, NBC formally ended the show, clearing it from its fall programming.

Through the rise in online streaming sites such as Netflix and Hulu, fans had hoped for an online revival akin to Netflix’s licensing of Arrested Development. Sadly, Hulu, which had previously streamed episodes of Community, declined the offer to produce future episodes. With the deadline approaching and fewer outlets emerging in discussion, Community was all but finished in the darkest timeline.

Sony on Community revival: “There’s no way we’re not making the movie now!”

2 July 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday news broke that Yahoo! would be giving new life to NBC’s beloved but recently cancelled Community, bringing our hopes of #sixseasonsandamovie closer to fruition.

13 new episodes will air on Yahoo! Screen this fall, and according to Sony Pictures Television president of programming and production Zack Van Amburg, the movie will follow. When asked about future seasons of the show following the upcoming sixth, Ambug said:

“I don’t know, let’s see how our movie does! Isn’t that our plan? There’s no way we’re not making the movie now! I think once we make the movie, let’s look up and decide how much more Community the world wants. We promised six seasons and a movie, how much more do you want? [Laughs]… I’d be lying if I told you that we have not had some very early and preliminary conversations that are very exciting »

Yahoo Saves Community For 13-Episode Sixth Season To Air On Yahoo Screen

30 June 2014 4:36 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Community fans can finally breathe. Just when things were beginning to really look hopeless, Yahoo as stepped in, and is going to give us the chance to see the sixth season.

Community fans are certainly a vocal crowd, and the show has managed a sort of cult status, in addition to ratings that are, in today’s world, actually not all that bad. McHale and crew will get at least 13 more episodes of community college (because who knows what will happen if the run does well enough) in their continuing effort to never graduate from anything.

The news makes for an interesting step for Yahoo Screen, and hopefully one that marks a future trend.

Get all the info below, and make sure you keep your sights set on Community. Given the last six or seven episodes of the show, I have a feeling this could be one of those truly »

'Community' Season 6 Will Debut Exclusively on Yahoo! Screen

30 June 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yahoo and Sony Pictures Television today announced that Community will return this Fall for a highly-anticipated sixth season, with 13 new episodes available exclusively on Yahoo Screen.

See you in the fall. #CommunityLivesOnpic.twitter.com/HSIzD0StT9

— Yahoo Screen (@YahooScreen) June 30, 2014

Community is a smart, exuberant comedy that is consistently ranked as one of the most inventive and original half-hours on television. This ensemble comedy centers around a tight-knit group of friends who all met at what is possibly the world's worst educational institution - Greendale Community College.

At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, The Soup), a fast-talking lawyer who was dis-barred until he could earn a legitimate degree. He chose Greendale, thinking he could breeze through the mediocre school without a hitch. However, he soon found himself the reluctant leader of a disparate group of misfits, all stuck at Greendale for different reasons.

"Community" Gets A Sixth Season On Yahoo

30 June 2014 2:57 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In a last minute turn around, NBC's beloved but cancelled "Community" has managed to score a sixth season after all - albeit with a new home. Sony Pictures Television has revived Dan Harmon's cult comedy series for thirteeen new episodes to launch this Fall on Yahoo Screen.

Showrunner Dan Harmon and key cast regulars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong and Jim Rash will all return. Exec producers Russ Krasnoff, Gary Foster and Chris McKenna will also return.

NBC canceled the ratings-challenged cult comedy in May with Sony Pictures TV trying to secure a deal with Hulu for another season - that deal fell apart the other week. Contract windows for the actors are about to expire so a deal had to be set in place quick - looks like they got it done just in time.

'Community' renewed by Yahoo for sixth season; movie to follow?

30 June 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Holy cow, boys and girls: "Community" has been renewed, after all. The dream of six seasons and a movie is still alive — thanks to Yahoo, of all places, which closed a deal for an additional season of the cult NBC comedy. The deal closed on the last day it realistically could, since the actors would all be released from their contracts at midnight tonight. The new season, comprised of 13 episodes, will debut this fall. Creator Dan Harmon and producer Chris McKenna, who returned to the show for season 5 after a year away, will stick around. The regular cast from the end of last season — Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Danny Pudi, Ken Jeong and Jim Rash — will all return. Donald Glover left midway through last season, and Jonathan Banks (who was a guest star for most of season 5) will be otherwise occupied with AMC's "Better Call Saul. »
