Watch: Raunchy International Trailer for 'Sleeping with Other People'

31 July 2015 12:09 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"What positions did you do?" Hold onto your butts, this is a wild one. Thankfully with international trailers they don't have to worry about MPAA restrictions, so this one lets loose with the sex and it gets quite raunchy. La Belle Company has debuted the French trailer for Leslye Headland's indie comedy Sleeping with Other People, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year (read Ethan's review). Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie star as platonic friends who discuss life and relationships and sex mostly. The cast also includes Natasha Lyonne, Adam Scott, Amanda Peet & Daniella Pineda. This looks like a ton of fun, including all the sex, everything else that's in it, too. See the official Us trailer here. New international trailer for Leslye Headland's Sleeping with Other People, on YouTube (via Playlist): Synopsis: Can two serial cheaters get a second chance at love? After a one-night stand in college, »

NBC Cancels American Odyssey After One Season

1 July 2015 8:01 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

NBC is ending its Odyssey. The Peacock has cancelled freshman drama American Odyssey after one 13-episode season American Odyssey starred Anna Friel as Odelle Ballard, Peter Facinelli as Peter Decker, Jake Robinson as Harrison Walters, Omar Ghazaoui as Aslam, Nate Mooney as Bob Offer, and Daniella Pineda as Ruby Simms.  The series premiered back on April 5 (aka Easter Sunday) to 5.4 million viewers and a 1.2 demo rating but soon saw its numbers take a dive, as it earned less than half of its demo rating, only garnering a 0.4, in six out of its final eight installments. The show aired its Season 1 (and now series) finale on Sunday night, which featured Odelle making the difficult decision to share her story, holding nothing back about the many secretive and damaging details. With the way the episode ended, there certainly could have been more stories to tell in a second…

Sleeping With Other People (2015) Movie Trailer: Another Heartfelt Rom-Com?

25 June 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Sleeping With Other People Trailer Has Been Released. Leslye Headland‘s Sleeping With Other People (2015) movie trailer stars Natasha Lyonne, Alison Brie, Jason Sudeikis, Adam Scott, and Jason MantzoukasSleeping With Other People‘s plot synopsis: “A good-natured womanizer and a serial cheater form a platonic relationship that helps reform them in ways, while a mutual attraction sets in.”

I’m pretty shocked that I still fall for these films. I watch most romantic comedies, even those not worthy of watching when you’re bored on an airplane. I suppose its the basic structure of the genre, the familiar plot points, character traits, the somewhat heightened version of reality. Everything seems easier in these films. New York looks cleaner and more romantic than it sometimes does when you’re living here. Everyone looks handsome or beautiful, and life is light. Things are bearable.

So, then, I’m quite sold on this, »

American Odyssey: Cancel or Renew for Season Two?

3 May 2015 9:16 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

American Odyssey Review – TV NBC

2 April 2015 3:06 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Much as the horror genre is deeply rooted in the evolving culture that creates it, NBC‘s latest “action-drama,” American Odyssey, builds itself from the conspiracy fears that are now equally laughed off and assumed to be obviously true.

Sgt. Odelle Ballard (Anna Friel, “Pushing Daisies”) is part of a group that stumbles upon an Al Qaeda’s top commander, but she quickly discovers intel that suggests an American corporation is funding the group. A private military company comes to clean up, and Odelle’s company is killed to cover things up. She escapes, but now she’s on the run, and a long way from home, and doesn’t have anyone she can trust.

Meanwhile, back at home, former U.S. Attorney Peter Decker (Peter Facinelli) is in the middle of a merger with the same company that apparently funded the jihadists, and he starts to put the pieces »

NBC’s Odyssey Retitled American Odyssey On Eve Of Debut

13 March 2015 6:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

NBC has tweaked the title of its upcoming drama Odyssey less than a month before its premiere, renaming the show American Odyssey.

Though the network declined to comment on what spurred the name change, sources close to the production say the new title better reflects the arduous journey of protagonist Odelle (Anna Friel), an American soldier beset by enemies on all sides as she attempts to return to her friends and family in New York.

Of course, the more cynical answer is that NBC execs weren’t living under a rock in January, when American Sniper stormed the box office and racked up Oscar nominations. Renaming the show American Odyssey may make the series more palatable to the same right-leaning audiences that sent Sniper soaring.

The transformation in NBC’s advertising campaign, tied in with the name-change, is quite startling. Whereas Friel’s protagonist was before on her knees, with her hands bound, »
