Adult Swim wants to cut a new swath through its audience.
The Time Warner-owned cable programmer that tilts toward millennial viewers and younger generations with animated fare shown in primetime and overnights, said it would release more original programming via streaming video for daytime viewing as part of an effort to spur its audience to increase consumption of its oddball but cult-favorite content.

Lessons in filmmaking from the directors of Captain America: Civil War.
The Russo Brothers, Joe and Anthony, are back with another installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America: Civil War, and they’ll soon be following it with more superheroes with the two parts of Avengers: Infinity War. They’re a pretty big deal in Hollywood considering just a few years ago their resume consisted only of little comedies on big and small screen, the latter including many episodes of the fan favorite Community.
It’s not just that they make successful comic book movie blockbusters, though. Their two Captain America movies are among the most critically acclaimed in the genre. They’re pretty good filmmakers in many regards, skilled with writing, directing action, directing actors, and more. They’re not ones to directly hand out advice for others to follow, but we managed to glean six tips from their statements in interviews, and »

One of the running gags in the new season of Veep involves Selina's daughter Catherine trying to film a documentary about her mother's work, and constantly being shooed out of the Oval Office because she's just captured an unflattering moment from America's first female president. "Catherine, do not use any of the vulgar parts," Selina eventually warns her. "But that's, like, all of it," Catherine points out. So, no, Veep fans, you don't have to worry about the Emmy-winning HBO comedy transforming into a radically different show in season 5 (which debuts Sunday at 10:30), even though creator Armando Iannucci has moved on to other projects, replaced by comedy veteran — and Veep newbie — David Mandel. This isn't going to be the gas leak season of Community: the four episodes I've seen feel very much like the show Iannucci was making, not only in the way they continue the cliffhanger of »

It’s that time of year again: when we go back to college, and rejoin our favourite study group. Yes, Community Season 6 is available now on DVD and Digital HD. The sixth season of the cult sitcom sees more changes, challenges, and Chang at Greendale Community College.
Joel McHale’s Jeff, Gillian Jacobs’ Britta, Danny Pudi’s Abed, Alison Brie’s Annie, and Jim Rash’s Pelton are all back, joined by newcomers Keith David – as Head of It Elroy – and Paget Brewster’s Frankie, brought in to improve the college.
Community Season 6 is something that fans have long hoped to see, but wasn’t clear whether or not it would ever get there. It’s always been the little sitcom that could, and was cancelled after its 5th Season (which brought back Dan Harmon, after he left the show for Season 4), before being saved – or ‘uncancelled’ – by Yahoo, and aired online last year. »

The path of Community has been a tough one. It quickly established itself as a very funny ensemble sitcom with a wicked twist of the surreal seemlessly thrown in; it benefited from a series of outlandish, always heartfelt, odd couple relationships, a talented cast, and strong guidance from showrunner Dan Harmon. As the show developed

Young Han Solo: Miles Teller has confirmed that he auditioned to play the lead role in the forthcoming young Han Solo spin-off movie, to be directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Surprisingly, he admitted: "I had never even seen any of the original Star Wars movies until maybe a month or a couple weeks before my first audition because I was like, ‘I should check this out’ (laughs). It holds up. I just love Harrison Ford, I think that’s a great character." [Happy Sad Confused via Collider] Bubbles: The real-life story of a chimpanzee named Bubbles, who gained fame as a companion to Michael Jackson, is heading to the big screen as a stop-motion animated feature.

Palo Alto was neither a sleeper hit or, from what I could tell, much of an overnight sensation, but it did herald the arrival of a new voice — and an addition to the greatest clan of American artists of the last 100 years. It’s good news, then, that Gia Coppola is at work on her follow-up: Variety tell us the director’s partnering with Naomi Watts and Jessica Lange for The Secret Life of the Lonely Doll, a drama based on the true story of Dare Wright. Though the author of beloved children’s book The Lonely Doll, she was rediscovered by a journalist, Jean Nathan, while living in a public hospital four decades after her work’s publication. (It’s easy to presume who will play who.) From her experience came a book that “pieces together Wright’s bizarre life of glamour and isolation, and her struggle to escape »
