Some movies based on true stories are meant to inspire the audience, by presenting a tale of how a real person overcame insurmountable odds to achieve greatness. There are others, though, that recount tales so outlandish most won't believe them to be true. Relativity Media's Masterminds is the second kind of true story adaptation, as you can see in the new trailer that was released today.

In Relativity Media's action comedy inspired by true events, directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre), David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) discovers the true meaning of adventure far beyond his wildest dreams.

Adult Swim Makes History By Launching First Full Episode On Vine

27 June 2016 10:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Most iPhone and android users know Vine as the social media app where you watch and make six-second videos that run on a consistent loop, but what if the app could host longer video content and become a platform for distribution? That’s certainly the question on Adult Swim’s mind as they make history today by using Vine to premiere an entire episode of their upcoming animated comedy series, “Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio.” Earlier this month, Vine announced it was letting select users test a 140-second video, but Adult Swim has put up a full 10-minute episode on the app.

Adult Swim: Out of 47 Shows On their Current Slate, None Have Been Created By Women

15 June 2016 12:41 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

In a surprising new article, Splitsider’s Megh Wright looked at Adult Swim’s roster of new and returning television projects and made the grand discovery that out of 47 series creators, none of them are female.

After looking more in depth at the network’s previous years, she found that this is nothing new and that the lineup was indicative of any other year. Yes, there are women working there, but none are creators of shows currently on Adult Swim’s slate. But as the network revealed during their 2014 upfronts, women make up 43 percent of the network’s audience.

“Women are watching, women work there in non-‘creator’ roles, and women have praised female characters there that feel more ‘real’ than ever,” Wright wrote. “So why, then, aren’t there any to be found as creators? Here’s Adult Swim’s official statement in response.”

“We are always on the lookout for new creative partners and have talented women writing and producing on our original series. We recently doubled our programming and development opportunities with the success of our streaming shows, which also have female creators,” replied Adult Swim

But as Wright points out, a live stream isn’t a television show, “When we have to bend the definitions of ‘television show’ and ‘creator’ in order to find women on that upfront announcement, that’s a problem,” she adds.

Many other networks such as Comedy Central, TBS, The CW, IFC, among others, have upped their female-led series. Which is great! “There are still signs of progress on all fronts except Adult Swim,” she notes. Adding, “But a progressive and willingly ‘out there’ network like Adult Swim can do better than 47 to 0.”

11 April 2016 11:58 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Right before production kicks off, Martin McDonagh‘s highly anticipated Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri has improved a remarkably impressive ensemble. The Wrap report on the additions of Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, and Manchester By the Sea‘s Lucas Hedges, who are to play, in order: a man fancying the picture’s lead (Frances McDormand); said lead’s ex-husband; and said lead’s son.

As previously reported, Three Billboards concerns “a 50-year-old woman whose daughter is murdered and she goes to war with the police in her home town, because she thinks they are more interested in torturing black people than getting justice.” Revealed in the newest update is a bit more about the plot: to shame Ebbing’s police, she “pays for three local billboards lambasting law enforcement officials and goading them into action.” Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell portray the sheriff and “hot-headed protégé,” respectively, while Caleb Landry Jones »
