New Girl Renewed for Season 5, John Cho Joins in Guest Role

18 hours ago

Bubble-watchers can relax, as Fox has picked up New Girl for a fifth season (while that season is already in production, it's worth noting). Also, for those curious, Zooey Deschanel's pregnancy will not be written into the script, so there will be no baby mama drama. David Madden, President of Entertainment at Fox said of the renewal, Four seasons in, New Girl continues to be one of the smartest and most relatable comedies on television. The writing is razor-sharp, the ensemble is consistently hilarious, and we couldn’t be more proud of Liz, Brett, Dave and the entire New Girl team. We absolutely love this show and we’re so excited to bring it back for Season Five. TV Line also reports that that John Cho will be joining the cast in a guest role as "a guy Jess meets when she excitedly reports for Jury Duty." (Selfie fans, »

Is This a Sample of Jared Leto’s Joker Voice for Suicide Squad?

19 hours ago

Jared Leto is a multitasker. The actor is currently on tour with his band, 30 Seconds to Mars, and during shows it looks like he’s testing out his Joker voice for Suicide Squad. Granted, an audience that shows up to his concert is going to love whatever he does unless it’s “Durrr, I’M The Joker Hardy Har Har." If this is his Joker voice, it sounds like he’s not going too far off the beaten path. Basically, he’s descending his voice into a gravelly pitch. However, it’s not really the “voice” that matters as much as the laugh. The laugh is what makes the character terrifying and sets him apart from a common street thug. Maybe Leto will test that out a show sometime down the line. In the meantime, check out this video of Leto possibly giving us a taste of what could be »

The 33 Trailer: The Emotional Story of the Chilean Mining Disaster

19 hours ago

It wasn't all that long ago -- just back in 2010 -- when the world became enraptured by the plight of 33 Chilean miners who became trapped in a 121-year-old San José copper-gold mine for 69 days. After its conclusion, the story seemed naturally made for film. There were many heroes involved in keeping the miners alive and in the rescue, leading to an almost unbelievably triumphant happy ending to what began as pure horror. The 33, directed by Mexican filmmaker Patricia Riggen (Under the Same Moon) and written by Mikko Alanne (5 Days of War) and Jose Rivera (The Motorcycle Diaries), details the events of the mine collapse, the plight and survival of the 33 men who were trapped 2,300 feet underground and 3 miles from the mine's only entrance, and the government's role in stepping in to devise a plan to free them. James Horner also created the sweeping score. From the trailer, the film »

The movie stars Tom Hardy as Mad Max, who joins up with Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) as they flee across the post-apocalyptic wasteland from a gang of ruthless warlords. We’ll have our thoughts on the trailer for you soon, but we wanted to bring this to you as quickly as possible. The film, which was helmed by George Miller, the director of the original, still-awesome Mad Max, will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and opens in 3D on May 15th. Along with Hardy and Cheron, Miller's fire-bathed action film also stars Nicholas HoultRiley KeoughZoe KravitzCourtney EatonRosie Huntington-WhiteleyHugh Keays-ByrneNathan Jones, and Abbey Lee Kershaw.

Jack Black Stages a High School Reunion in The D Train Trailer

20 hours ago

IFC Films has released The D Train trailer online. The indie dramedy stars Jack Black as a desperate man trying to organize a high school reunion who courts a former classmate (James Marsden) in the hopes that his celebrity may be enough to draw in other alums. For a film that stars Jack Black and James Marsden as well as Kathryn Hahn and Jeffrey Tambor, the premise is remarkably low stakes even though the film presents its premise as outrageous. However, in his review from Sundance, our critic Ruffus said the film’s “dry comedic tone allows for a variety of subject matters from sexuality and success, to the “every man’s” desire to make their dreams come true, and failing on the way.” So perhaps this trailer has really smoothed off the edges to present what could easily be an episode of Modern Family. Check out The D Train trailer and poster below. »

The Flash-arrow Spin-Off Taps Doctor Who’s Arthur Darvill for Rip Hunter

20 hours ago

Here’s more news from the still-unnamed The Flash-Arrow spin-off, which will feature a gaggle of super heroes that somehow (Somehow!) have not yet been involved in the already over-stuffed DC universe. Deadline reports that Arthur Darvill, the young British actor who many may know from his recent work on Doctor Who, is set to portray time-traveling lumberjack-type Rip Hunter in the series, which will be helmed by Arrow creators Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and Marc Guggenheim. Of course, its unclear if the Hunter of this narrative will be the bearded juggernaut that appears in the DC pages, or if his costume will be anything like the gloriously ridiculous red-and-green suit that the time explorer dons in the comics. [caption id="attachment_364528" align="alignright" width="348"] Image via The CW[/caption] The announcement of Darvill’s inclusion in the show comes on the heels of Ciara Renée being cast as Hawkgirl. Both of these characters »

Hans Zimmer and Christopher Nolan on Crafting the Film’s Score in Exclusive Interstellar Blu-ray Clip

20 hours ago

One of the most fruitful film collaborations of the past decade isn’t a union between an actor and a director or a screenwriting duo—it’s a filmmaker and a composer. Over the course of five films, Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer have crafted some of the most memorable movie scores in recent memory, from the unnerving The Dark Knight to the bombastic Inception, and their latest collaboration might just be their best yet. The sci-fi epic Interstellar boasts an original score that matches the ambition and scope of the film itself, with Zimmer opting for majesty over pulse, emotion over intensity. The result is a moving and memorable score that is as vital to the film's impact as its performers or visuals. In concert with the release of Interstellar on Blu-ray and DVD today (it's also currently available on Digital HD), we here at Collider have been provided »

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Set for February 19, 2016

20 hours ago

After years of languishing in development hell, I’m still surprised that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies actually got made, let alone that it’s coming to theaters. Screen Gems has announced Burr Steers’ horror-comedy, based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, will finally open on February 19, 2016. The story follows Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) as they try to navigate societal pressures of the landed gentry and fend off hoards of zombies. I’m surprised the studio didn’t move the film up a week and get in that Valentine’s Day crowd.  Of course, that would put it against the heavy competition of Deadpool and Zoolander 2. Currently, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is only sharing its weekend with the thriller Shut In. The film also stars Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Matt Smith, »

Monday TV Ratings: The Voice, Dancing With The Stars Split a Win

21 hours ago

The Monday TV ratings for March 30th are in; here are some of the highlights (with the main theme being "even when you win, you lose"): The Voice at 8 p.m. helped NBC win the night with adults in the key 18-49 demographic, bringing in a 3.2 rating and 11.67 million viewers (even though it was down 6 percent from last week). Dancing with the Stars, in the same timeslot, came in second ratings-wise, but gave ABC the boost with overall viewers, notching a 2.1 rating but 13.55 million watchers (up 5 percent  from last week). On CBS at 9 p.m., Scorpion won the hour with a 1.9 rating and 9.2 million viewers, which was actually a series low (down 10 percent from last week). [caption id="attachment_415080" align="alignright" width="236"] Image via Fox[/caption] It bested Fox's The Following, which pulled in a tie for its series low with a 1.1 rating and 3.25 million viewers. At 10 p.m., CBS's NCIS: Los Angeles won the »

Weird Loners Review

22 hours ago

Weird Loners, the latest multi-camera comedy from Fox, nearly lives up to the promise of its clunky title. The four New Yorkers at the center of the series are odd but only up to a point, after which they revert in total to familiar archetypes. Caryn (Becki Newton), for instance, is a dental hygienist with commitment issues, which stop her from settling down with Howard (David Wain), a lame but loving doctor. Her neighbor, Eric (Nate Torrence), is a dim, overweight Mets fan who makes his bread as a tollbooth operator. Most sitcoms are built around variations on these sort of characters, either as part of the central group or as reoccuring supporting roles. The way that this show is written, however, accentuates the total alienation of these characters to the world around them, which makes for a consistently awkward, if vaguely interesting, half-hour comedy.

New Spy Trailer Has Melissa McCarthy Engaging in More Undercover Hijinks

22 hours ago

20th Century Fox has released a new Spy trailer and poster. The film stars Melissa McCarthy as Susan Cooper, a CIA analyst who’s going into the field for the very first time after the identity of all the regular field agents is jeopardized. While this trailer isn’t packed with laughs and it can’t resist the “fatty fall down” humor that I find a little cringeworthy, it does have some good jokes, especially near the end. The film got a lot of positive buzz coming out of SXSW (click here to read Perri’s review), and I’m still incredibly excited to see it. Looking at this trailer and having recently rewatched The Heat, it’s clear that McCarthy is at her best when she’s insulting other characters, so hopefully we’ll be seeing more of that. Check out the new Spy trailer and poster below. The »

Top Five Blu-ray Review

31 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT

Hollywood has tried with Chris Rock. Though he remains one of the greatest standups in the business, most of his cinematic output is lacking, and he’s never made a great leading man (I might be inclined to argue that his finest on screen role was in I’m Gonna Git You Sucka). But it seems that the success of Louis C.K. and his show Louie has transformed how many stand ups approach making their own movies and television shows, and C.K. is a likely inspiration for Rock’s latest effort Top Five. Playing a version of himself, Rock confronts success and romance from a new angle, and though the film has moments, it never finds truth even if it delivers some laughs. [caption id="attachment_366452" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Paramount Pictures[/caption] Rock stars as Andre Allen, who comes across as an amalgamation of Rock, Eddie Murphy, Chris Tucker, and more, who »

The Flash’s Mark Hamill and Andrew Kreisberg Talk Bringing The Trickster Back

30 March 2015 11:58 PM, PDT

In Episode 17 of The CW series The Flash, entitled “Tricksters,” a copycat killer using the name The Trickster (Devon Graye) starts setting off bombs in Central City. In an effort to stop him, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) meet with the original Trickster, a criminal mastermind named James Jesse (Mark Hamill, reprising the role he first played in the original series), who has been imprisoned for 20 years, hoping for some insight into how to stop this new incarnation. Following a screening of the episode at The CW offices, actor Mark Hamill talked about bringing back The Trickster, working with counterpart Devon Graye, improvising, why it was terribly intimidating to show up on set, why he also enjoys voicing The Joker for various animated projects, his look, working with John Wesley Shipp, and how amazing it is to see the comic book medium getting the respect »

Better Call Saul Recap: “Pimento”

30 March 2015 8:51 PM, PDT

"Pimento" may be Better Call Saul's finest episode yet, as both the humor and the emotional payout felt completely balanced. We knew that Jimmy's Sandpiper case was going to implode on him somehow, but nothing could have prepared him for the betrayal that came from within his own ranks. One of the most devastating things about the revelation that Chuck had always been the one holding Jimmy back at Hhm -- and not Howard -- was a sense of wasted time. Jimmy has hated Howard for so long, making him the focus of his drive for success, and also his revenge. And now, with incredible intrigue, one considers the man of Howard himself. He's taken shit from Jimmy for so long, anger that he knew should have been aimed at Chuck, and never said a word (until now, to Kim). The implications are incredible to consider.

Masterminds Trailer: Zach Gaflianakis Steals $17 Million

30 March 2015 8:21 PM, PDT

Relativity Studios has released the first Masterminds trailer for director Jared Hess’ (Napoleon Dynamite) upcoming action comedy. Based on true events, the story revolves around an unassuming armored truck driver (Zach Galifianakis) who is lured into a heist scheme that points to him as the scapegoat. Now on the lam, he must evade the cops, survive a hit man (Jason Sudeikis), and try to turn the tables back on those that double-crossed him. The movie looks appropriately silly, with Galifianakis donning a variation of his "Seth Galifianakis" accent for a character that was once to be played by Jim Carrey. I like all of the actors involved, so hopefully this makes for a nice (and significantly odd) summer comedy. Check the new Masterminds trailer below as well as the movie’s first poster. The film also stars Kristen WiigOwen Wilson, and Ken Marino. Masterminds opens in theaters on August 7th. »

The Next Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer Is Attached to Avengers: Age Of Ultron

30 March 2015 7:20 PM, PDT

When will we see a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer? Mark May 1st on your calendars, if you haven’t already. We’re confirming what /Film previously reported that the new trailer for J.J. Abrams’ highly anticipated sequel is definitely attached to every copy of Avengers: Age of Ultron that will play in theaters, giving it a guaranteed massive audience. Of course, Disney owns both Marvel and Lucasfilm so this is was an obvious place for the next trailer to play (and at the beginning of the summer movie season, no less), but if there were any doubts, those can safely be put to rest. [caption id="attachment_374028" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Disney[/caption] The new trailer will first premiere at the Star Wars Celebration convention, which runs from April 16th to 19th, and Age of Ultron’s international release starts rolling out on April 22nd, so the question is when Disney »

Vacation Moves Up to July, Takes Aim at Mission: Impossible

30 March 2015 5:44 PM, PDT

Warner Bros. is apparently very bullish on its new Vacation movie. The studio has opted to move up the film’s release date from October 9th to July 31st, not only putting the comedy in the heat of the summer, but also squaring it off directly against Paramount’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. It’s a smart piece of counter-programming that WB hopes will draw audiences into the comedy redo, which is essentially a sequel to National Lampoon’s Vacation. The film marks the directorial debut of scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2) and stars Ed Helms as a grown up Rusty Griswold, who opts to take his own family on a vacation that goes horribly, horribly wrong. Christina Applegate plays Rusty’s wife, Leslie Mann is his sister Audrey, and Chris Hemsworth plays Audrey’s up-and-coming anchorman husband, marking »

Amy Poehler, Louis C.K., and Amy Schumer Were Pursued to Take Over The Daily Show

30 March 2015 3:56 PM, PDT

When Jon Stewart announced he was leaving The Daily Show, many (myself included) first felt an immense sadness. Not only has the guy been a consistent presence in the late night TV lineup for nearly 17 years, but he singlehandedly transformed the show into a smart, politically inclined phenomenon, offering humorous satirical takes on the biggest issues affecting the world without devolving into cynicism. In short, it’s tough to imagine The Daily Show without Jon Stewart, and replacing him was going to be a near-impossible task. Earlier today Comedy Central formally announced that Trevor Noah, a South African comedian who has been a correspondent on the series since December 2014, will be taking over the series when Stewart leaves. He’s a solid choice and makes clear that Comedy Central isn’t looking to replace Jon Stewart, they’re looking for someone who can make the show their own. But some »

Hal Hartley and Aubrey Plaza Talk Ned Rifle and Dirty Grandpa at SXSW

30 March 2015 3:51 PM, PDT

Eighteen years after Henry Fool (Thomas Jay Ryan) turned lowly garbageman Simon Grim (James Urbaniak) into an accomplished poet and nine years after Henry got Fay Grim (Parker Posey) involved in an international security conundrum, writer-director Hal Hartley is wrapping up his Fool/Grim trilogy with Ned Rifle. This installment centers on Henry and Fay’s son, Ned (Liam Aiken). With his mother in prison and his father’s whereabouts unknown, Ned is sent to live with Reverend Daniel Gardner (Martin Donovan) and his family. However, when Ned turns 18, he decides it’s time to head off and kill the person responsible for ruining his mother’s life, his father. With Ned Rifle screening at SXSW in the Festival Favorites section, I got the opportunity to discuss the film with Hartley and Aubrey Plaza who steps in as Susan, the underage girl Henry slept with prior to the events of Henry Fool. »

NBC Sets The Wiz as Next Live Musical; Broadway Revival to Follow

30 March 2015 3:03 PM, PDT

NBC has settled on the source material for its next live musical staging, and it may come as a bit of a surprise. THR reports that the network has set The Wiz as its next live television event, but this adaptation will differ from NBC’s Peter Pan and The Sound of Music in one significant way: it has Cirque du Solei onboard. The Wiz Live will be a co-production between NBC and Cirque du Solei under the latter’s new theatrical banner and will air on December 3rd, followed by a fully fledged Broadway revival of the Wizard of Oz update during the 2016-17 season. Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will once again return as executive producers with Tony Award-winning director Kenny Leon staging both the television production and the Broadway revival. If that wasn’t enough, Harvey Fierstein is contributing new material to the original Broadway book by William F. Brown. »
