After Entertainment Weekly put them in charge of this week’s issue (Thanks for the 30 percent raises, Tina and Amy! That wasn’t a joke, right?), Fey and Poehler assigned several stories, including one in which Mad Men’s leading man Jon Hamm interviewed Ellie Kemper, who will star in a new NBC comedy that Fey is executive producing. (As it turns out, Hamm was Kemper’s acting teacher back in St. Louis.) There »

The line-up of films premiering at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival has been released, and there are a lot of good movies, one of which includes The Raid 2, which I am incredibly excited to see! It's easily my most anticipated film at the festival.
The Sundance Film Festival takes place from January 16th to the 26th in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Sundance, Utah. From the press release:
John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival, said, “The Premieres and Documentary Premieres sections of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival feature new work from many established independent filmmakers who began their careers at our Festival years ago, which allows us to reflect on the impact, legacy and growth of the independent film movement over the past 30 years.”
Trevor Groth, Director of Programming for the Sundance Film Festival, said, “In many of the films selected for our 2014 Sundance Film Festival, we see fascinating characters and subjects throughout. »

The Sundance Film Festival made their final feature film line-ups with the Premieres category announcements. Sixteen films with huge name talent, returnee filmmakers and plenty of buyer interest/and future all night wheeling, and dealing.
After breaking out in Park City with The Guard, John Michael McDonagh returns (alongside actor Brendan Gleeson) the much anticipated Calvary. Mike Cahill (alongside actress Brit Marling) returns with more sci-fi terrain with, I Origins. Jake Paltrow who managed to sink instead of swim with The Good Night, was again surfaces with Young Ones. And this was unexpected, but Jordan Vogt-Roberts makes it back to back years with Toy’s House (The Kings of Summer) re-teams with Nick Offerman for Nick Offerman: American Ham (which is more concert-comedy film than narrative feature).

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler make a stellar comedic duo but, as this new Golden Globes promo proves, their musical harmony is less than impressive. In this 30-second clip, the Saturday Night Live veterans tease their upcoming hosting gig with some adorably out-of-tune vocalizing.
"Tina and I are back to host the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards," says Poehler as she sits behind a grand piano, her partner standing at her side. Fey suggests »
An unusually strong international flavor pervades the Sundance Film Festival’s Premieres slate, with new pictures from British helmer Michael Winterbottom, Irish directors Lenny Abrahamson and John Michael McDonagh, Dutch filmmaker Anton Corbijn, Welsh-born action maven Gareth Evans and Iranian-born French auteur Marjane Satrapi figuring prominently among the 17 world-premiere titles unveiled today alongside the Documentary Premieres section.

For director of programming Trevor Groth, the flowering of international auteur talent in Premieres is the result of a considered effort that began shortly after he and fest director John Cooper launched their first edition in 2010. While their immediate focus was on beefing up the dramatic competition as a showcase for new filmmakers, broader international outreach across all sections of the festival became a similar priority.
“I think we’ve really built the dramatic competition up in a way that it’s firing at the level we always hoped it would, »

The Sundance Film Festival announced the titles selected to screen in its out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres sections. Last year, the movies that were launched in these categories — which typically highlight filmmakers who’ve appeared at Sundance before — included Before Midnight, Don Jon, and The Way Way Back; this year appears to be just as promising. In Lynn Shelton’s Laggies, a young woman stuck in arrested-development (Keira Knightley) has her life upended by an unexpected marriage proposal. In David Wain’s They Came Together — surely, a naughty pun, yes? — Wet Hot American Summer alums Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd »

In celebration of the wildly anticipated 50th Anniversary Special for Dr. Who, DreamWorks has launched a new trailer for next year’s animated blockbuster, Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
The first trailer arrived just a few weeks ago, giving a brilliant first look at what’s coming our way early next year. And now this new trailer – officially labelled a featurette, but really it’s all footage – teases still more from what is set to be a big win amongst family audiences.
Mr. Peabody, the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman, use their time machine—the Wabac—to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes the Wabac out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidently rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. Before they forever alter the past, »

Everything always comes together — the world, the universe — the stars always align, and fairy tales seem real when The Mindy Project returns to its homage-to-romantic-comedy roots. (Its title, "You've Got Sext," is obviously a direct reference to one of Mindy Kaling's favorite rom-coms, You've Got Mail.) This week represents another step toward Glenn Howerton’s heretofore confusingly idle lawyer character, Cliff, becoming a major love interest for Mindy, and it marks the always-welcome return of Ellie Kemper as Mindy’s ex’s ex Heather — and now, the third side of a love triangle with Mindy yet again. All great news. This episode also gives us some of Mindy’s most feminist jibes. My second-favorite comes from Mindy to Morgan: “I need you to stop using your ability to have sex with me as a barometer for how I’m dressed.” (Oh, Mindy, can you please deliver that message to »

Mindy has been meeting-cute with a lot of guys lately. It was only a matter of time before we saw a morning-after with one of them; I just didn’t think the lucky suitor would be Danny.
Psych! They didn’t hook up — but last night Mindy and Danny did come closer to discussing the Taylor Swift song in the room than they ever previously had. Mindy lost her purse, including her apartment keys and wallet, so she needed to crash with Danny for the night. He did not seem enthused, but he later relents. When they got back to his apartment, »

Dr. Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) hasn't been in the happiest of moods since her breakup with fiance Casey in the first few episodes of "The Mindy Project" Season 2. She's not exactly at her best in the newest episode, "You've Got Sext," airing Tuesday (Nov. 12), but by the end of the cute, rom-com-esque episode (check the title for its inspiration) her luck could be changing.
Here are five things you can expect from the digital era Nora Ephron tribute:
1. Sexting. Like the title promises, there are some flirty texts received and sent by some of our favorite main characters. This is a prime time show, so things don't get too steamy, but the messages manage to be both hilarious and and squeal-inducing at the same time.
2. Catfishing. Did we mention the people sending and receiving said texts aren't necessarily who they say they are? It's a slightly more modern twist on »
ABC's The Goldbergs is staging a Bridesmaids reunion. Feature writer/actress Annie Mumolo has been tapped to guest star on ABC's 1980s-set comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Mumolo will play a rival "smother" opposite Bridesmaids alum Wendi McLendon-Covey and appear during an episode slated to air in 2014. Photos: Faces of Fall TV 2013 Mumolo, who co-wrote the screenplay for Bridesmaids, also had a minor part in the feature, playing a nervous woman on the plane in the movie starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne and Ellie Kemper.

We've been following all news about the multiple television projects that Tina Fey has in the works. And one of those projects just got a straight to series order at NBC along with a star for the show.

While tapping into very relatable themes, there isn't anything like this anywhere else on television. NBC has been their »

NBC isn’t letting Liz Lemon go anywhere. They’ve just locked down a new show created by Tina Fey starring The Office’s Ellie Kemper. They actually made the unusual move of skipping the whole pilot stage and simply ordering the show to series. This can be dangerous, as has been proven with NBC’s own misadventures with [&hellip
I hope this is as good as it sounds on paper.
It would be a big deal if George Romero would be involved in The Walking Dead so, naturally, the show has tried to get him involved for an episode or two. So far, he’s refused because he’s been disappointed in the drama explaining, “… it’s just a soap opera with a zombie occasionally. I always used the zombie as a character for satire or a political criticism.”
