Bill Hader’s List of 200 Essential Comedies Everyone Should See

28 August 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bill Hader has come a long way since his stint on Saturday Night Live, creating many popular characters and impersonations such as Stefon, Vincent Price and CNN’s Jack Cafferty. He is one of the highlights in such films as Adventureland, Knocked Up, Superbad and Pineapple Express, and so it is easy to see why author Mike Sacks interviewed him for his new book Poking A Dead Frog. In it, Hader talks about his career and he also lists 200 essential movies every comedy writer should see. Xo Jane recently published the list for those of us who haven’t had a chance to read the book yet. There are a ton of great recommendations and plenty I haven’t yet seen, but sadly my favourite comedy of all time isn’t mentioned. That would be Some Like It Hot. Still, it really is a great list with a mix of old and new. »

Lionsgate Buys Opera-Themed Comedy ‘The Three Tenors’

20 August 2014 12:45 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Lionsgate has bought The Three Tenors, an ensemble comedy spec by Johnny Rosenthal that will be produced by Patrick Aiello. Think A Night At The Opera meets Anchorman here as the comedy traces the rise and fall, and then another rise and fall and then rise, of a fictional trio of internationally beloved operatic superstars. This sounds pretty good; I always wondered why Adam Sandler never turned his Opera Man character into a feature.

Erik Feig, Co-President of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, and Summit Evp Production Meredith Milton acquired the project and are overseeing for the studio. Rosenthal recently wrote Bad Santa 2 for Dimension and Iron Jack for Sony. Aiello just produced the Legendary Pictures/Universal thriller As Above So Below that will open August 28 and he is in production on director Kevin Reynolds’ first-century epic thriller Clavius, which stars Joseph Fiennes and Tom Felton. Rosenthal is repped by Paradigm, »

Marx Brothers Rarities—And A Secret Bonus Disc

11 August 2014 5:53 AM, PDT | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

The Marx Brothers created timeless comedy, but fans have had to “make do” with the relative handful of movies they left behind. It’s no chore to revisit Duck Soup or A Night at the Opera on a regular basis, but now, thanks to Shout! Factory’s new three-disc DVD set The Marx Brothers TV Collection, there is more Marxian madness than ever to enjoy. And, if you say the secret woid, there is a fourth “bonus” disc available in limited quantities (along with a poster of Drew Friedman’s wonderful DVD cover art) if you order directly from Shout! Factory’s website Here. It includes a half-hour filmed segment from the anthology Silver Theater starring Chico called Papa Romani (1950), an...

1 July 2014 9:12 AM, PDT | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Dasha Safronova, a 15-year-old Russian musical prodigy spent two months recording herself playing and singing every part of Queen’s classic, 1975 song “Bohemian Rhapsody,” including the four-part harmony. The band, Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (guitar, vocals), John Deacon (bass guitar), and Roger Taylor (drums, vocals) recorded the song for their album A Night at the Opera. The tune went on to become one of the best-selling singles of all time. It was noted not only for its intricate composition, but also for its groundbreaking mash up of progressive rock and opera. ...Read More »

It’s In The Bag

8 March 2014 1:13 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

A former vaudevillian, the great comedian Fred Allen found his fame in radio but was unable to navigate a suitable transition to TV (“Television is a medium,” he once observed, “because it is neither rare nor well done.”). He made a few casual appearances in movies but only once, in 1945, did he take full advantage of that particular medium.

That film, one of the “lost” trailers featured in our Great Global Trailer Search, was, until its recent home video revival, very nearly a lost film in itself. More’s the pity because It’s in the Bag, Allen’s sole starring vehicle, is an overlooked comic gem.

A surreal-screwball farce fueled by Allen’s perpetually perplexed sad sack persona and out-of-left-field set pieces (like a nightmarish trip to the movies that predicts the vertiginous pitfalls of a crowded Imax theater), It’s in the Bag recalls the anything goes Paramount »
