10 April 2017 7:57 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

When HBO picked up the Animals TV show, it was with a two-season order. The premium cable outlet has featured a few animated series in the past, but they haven’t been too successful, and Animals' first installment was no exception. It scraped the bottom of the ratings barrel. How will Animals perform in its second season? Now that it is working without a net, will Animals be cancelled or renewed for season three on HBO? Stay tuned.An animated adult comedy, Animals features the critters that live in (and off of) the Big Apple. The HBO voice cast includes Phil Matarese, Mike Luciano, Meghan O’Neill, Katie Aselton, Mary Holland, Amir Blumenfeld, Jake Hurwitz, Neil Casey, Mark Duplass, Lauren Lapkus, Stephanie Allynne, Mace Coronel, Jay Duplass, Darold Ferguson Jr., Jon Lovitz, Aziz Ansari, Nick Kroll, Rob Corddry, Marc Maron, Ike Barinholtz, Jason Mantzoukas, Nathan Fielder, Paul Scheer, Matt Walsh, »

Film Review: ‘Punching Henry’

24 February 2017 12:38 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Comic singer-songwriter Henry Phillips continues to engage as a likable loser in “Punching Henry,” a sharply observed and understatedly amusing follow-up to “Punching the Clown,” the prize-winning 2009 indie in which he played a chronically luckless character modeled, and named, after himself.

Emile Hirsch is the ex, a banjo-playing goofball. The full cast includes Analeigh Tipton, Kristen Schaal, Taran Killam and Stephanie Allynne. This looks like a wild night of fun, I just hope it's good. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Gavin Wiesen's All Nighter, originally from Yahoo: A workaholic father who attempts to visit his daughter during a layover in La, only to discover that she's disappeared, is forced to team »
