No monkeying around, Taika Waititi & Mark Gustafason join forces on Michael Jackson Chimp, Bubbles, project

21 April 2017 8:43 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Zehra Phelan

The Thor: Ragnarok and Hunt for the Wilderpeople director Taika Waititi will be teaming up with Emmy-winning director Mark Gustafson to co-direct an Anomalisa inspired animation of the infamous chimp that became best buddies with The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, Bubbles.

You read that right, Bubbles is getting his own film. The chimp was adopted by Jackson back in 1988 and didn’t leave his side for a number of years, not until 2003 when the chimp became an aggressive adult like all normal chimpanzee’s and could no longer be controlled. However, Waititi has stated that this is in no way a biopic on the monkey’s life.

“It’s an idea that fascinates me and one I want to develop further,” said Waititi. “Most people know I’m a huge Michael Jackson fan, so the main thing for me is to make sure it’s respectful of him and his legacy. »

Kumail Nanjiani: 'For a long time, there was one famous American brown actor'

17 April 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From an uber-nerd programmer in Silicon Valley to romantic lead in Sundance hit The Big Sick, the actor discusses shaking up the tired Hollywood romcom

‘I was not a cool kid,” admits Kumail Nanjiani. “There was no reason for me to be marginalised. I was just a nerd. I was kind of weird and I found solace in video games.” In a pop culture universe dominated by grown men who never quite outgrew their adolescent preoccupations, Nanjiani’s origin story is hardly unusual. The Pakistan-born comic, actor and writer spent his formative years huddled in his bedroom playing Golden Axe on his Sega Genesis, and becoming immersed to the point of obsession with The X-Files.

Since embarking on a career in comedy – he relocated to the Us with his family when he was 18 – he has largely catered to audiences that share his particular enthusiasms. He has hosted a podcast about »

Sponsored Post: “We can do it!”: 7 great ragtag team-ups from pop-culture history

16 April 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Sometimes, all it takes to solve a problem is a little teamwork. But unlike sports teams or volunteer firefighters, not everyone always has the best incentive to band together and do what’s right. In fact, sometimes the people involved don’t even share the same interests or goals, but find themselves in an “enemy of my enemy is my friend” situation. And sometimes, they’re in it for the money. Whatever the case, pop culture is full of unexpected—and unexpectedly great—team-ups, in both film and television. In the following Inventory, we celebrate a few of the more noteworthy groups of people who united in a common cause to achieve something extraordinary.

Edgar Wright to adapt apocalyptic novel, Grasshopper Jungle

12 April 2017 4:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Crow Apr 13, 2017

Director Edgar Wright isn't slowing down after Baby Driver, as he lines up the apocalyptic Young Adult novel, Grasshopper Jungle...

It's five years since Edgar Wright's last film, which makes the imminent release of Baby Driver all the more exciting. Having already wowed crowds at SXSW, the picture appears to be a subversive take on the heist/crime genre, and indicates Wright may wish to continue deconstructing archetypes… including perhaps a Young Adult take on the end of the world in Grasshopper Jungle.

Critical Thinking: Reviewing Content in the Digital Age

10 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on reviewing content in the digital age…

I was in a discussion with a friend regarding Rick and Morty; a show I love more than just about any piece of produced content in the 21st century. My friend gave the show a go but decided that he, and I quote, ‘just didn’t get it’. Comedically speaking, Dan Harmon’s brand of humor is my silly siren’s song. His creative voice speaks to my sensibilities. I consider Community to be one of the most clever comedies ever produced. A show that got so many things right, from the strong flawed characters that populated the campus of Greendale Community College to the complete deconstruction of filmed storytelling. The show was damn near perfect when Harmon was steering the ship.

For my tastes, Rick and Morty achieves the exact same level of perfection in terms of character, cleverness and comedy. »

Rick and Morty Season 3 Promo Supercut

9 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

One of the biggest treats of the year for Rick and Morty fans was the release of the season 3 premiere on April fools day.  While fans of Rick and Morty had been told season 3 was experiencing delays, Dan Harmon pulled a fast one by letting fans in on the first episode of season 3.   Unfortunately we’ll have to wait until the summer to catch more episodes.  However, as we’ve seen in the last couple of days, we won’t be short on anticipation. There have already been multiple promos released and indications are that Rick and Morty will be

Watch eight promos for Rick and Morty season 3

7 April 2017 3:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the surprise season three premiere episode of Rick and Morty, Adult Swim aired eight promos for the new season of the sci-fi sitcom featuring various different styles of animation, and now they have been made available to view online; check them out below…

Rick and Morty is Adult Swim’s most scientifically accurate animated comedy. Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, it catalogues the bizarre misadventures of a bored scientific genius/drunkard and his socially awkward grandson, Morty. Their exploits tend to have unintended consequences for Morty’s dysfunctional family, especially his unfailingly mediocre father, Jerry.

Awesome Fanmade Better Call Saul Spoof Poster: “Better Call Morty”

We got some great news out of two great shows this week.  The first treat we were gifted was the season 1 premiere of Rick and Morty on April fool’s day.  Fans had been warned prior that production had slowed on the show. Dan Harmon made things look pretty grim but then out of nowhere comes this brand new episode.  Fans couldn’t figure out if this was the actual first episode or just a prank.  I’m pretty sure people are still trying to figure this out. On another show’s news front, I had the pleasure of announcing that Better Call

‘Rick and Morty’: Adult Swim Hints At How Long You Have to Wait for Season 3

3 April 2017 1:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The cult following behind “Rick and Morty” has only intensified around its recent crazy promotional style. In part as a reaction to the very long delay for Season 3, and in part as an homage to the show’s own wicked sense of humor, Adult Swim has been diabolical in dribbling out bits of “Rick and Morty” — such as this beautiful Rick Roll — to a thirsty and appreciative audience, who are more than willing to both praise and curse Dan Harmon’s name.

The delay on “Rick and Morty” is all Harmon’s fault, which he admitted to IndieWire recently. Therefore, we’re more than happy to give him credit for pulling off this epic April Fool’s joke of actually delivering the real deal: the Season 3 premiere episode streamed online over the weekend for a limited time. Titled “The Rickshank Redemption,” the 23-minute episode packed in a lot, picking up »

3 April 2017 8:32 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The time traveling buddy duo of a drunken mad scientist and his hapless grandson, the animated sci-fi series “Rick and Morty” has earned a devoted cult following that single handedly brought Dan Harmon (who created the show with Justin Roiland) back to life. But, as Harmon fans know all too well from his tumultuous exit from “Community,” loving a Harmon show doesn’t always mean it will love you back.

Rick and Morty Season 3 Episode 1 Review – ‘The Rickshank Redemption’

2 April 2017 5:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe reviews the first episode of Rick and Morty season 3…

Rick and Morty made its surprise return this April Fool’s Day when Adult Swim just began streaming the first episode of season 3 unannounced live on their website back to back for several hours, with the caption ‘you can stop bugging us now.’ Season 3 itself will not be arriving until the summer but this small slice of the pie was very, very sweet.

‘The Rickshank Redemption’ had a lot of work on its hands. At the end of season 2, Rick had been arrested by The Galatic Federation and the sinister organisation had also taken over earth, imprisoning everybody who lived there. The episode’s main focus should have just been about getting everything back to normality, but in such a short run time it still managed to achieve so much more than was expected of it.

Rick and Morty Season 3 Premiere Gets Surprise Release and We Have It All

2 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The wait for Rick and Morty Season 3 has been unbearable for fans who have been completely delighted by the first two seasons.  After speculation that the third season wouldn’t take that long to launch, fans have been waiting over a year for Adult Swim to release a new episode.  It turns out that on April fools, fans were greeted with an awesome surprise. Dan Harmon had been tempering expectations by alluding to problems behind the scenes, by saying it was in production and by saying they were recording voice overs. But it turns out this entire time it was

Rick And Morty Season 3 episode 1 review: The Rickshank Redemption

Joe Matar Apr 3, 2017

It was the best Rick And Morty season premiere episode ever: thrills, spills, and continuity!

This review contains spoilers.

3.1 The Rickshank Redemption

So, maybe you’ve heard…

Here in the Us, Rick And Morty aired its season premiere this very April Fools’ night, like fifty times in a row, to boot. It streamed for a few hours on Adult Swim’s website and played on loop on Cartoon Network, in place of all the other scheduled programming. Samurai Jack and Dragon Ball Super fans were upset. But everyone else got a totally awesome Rick And Morty season 3 premiere! And it had pretty much everything I look for from the show.

First off, it was one helluva sci-fi rigmarole smash-em-up. At the end of last season, Rick got imprisoned by the Galactic Federation and they also kind of took over Earth, so a lot of murder and explosions »

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in April 2017, and The Best Episodes of Each

1 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

1. “Dear White People” Season 1 (available April 28)

Why Should I Watch It? “Dear White People” is based on Justin Simien’s 2014 Sundance sensation of the same name, pulling characters and plot lines from the satirical comedy that helped introduce us to the glory that is Tessa Thompson. While the “Creed” star won’t be returning, other breakouts from the film are, and the core story — of a predominantly white Ivy League university facing a heated racial debate after a misguided blackface Halloween party — has been refined to fit a serialized format. It is hilarious, sharp, and so timely it hurts. Don’t miss it.

Best Episode: We caught the first two at SXSW, and though both are absolutely stellar, I’ve got to give the edge to the pilot. Logan Browning, as a radio personality who hosts a show titled “Dear White People,” gives a finely layered turn and the general »
