Absolutely Anything Trailer Gives Simon Pegg the Power

2 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Lionsgate UK has released the first official trailer for Terry Jones' (Life of Brian, Monty Python and the Holy Grail) new sci-fi comedy Almost Anything. The film stars Simon Pegg as Neil Clarke, a cynical school teacher who is granted the power to do anything as a part of an alien examination to judge the good and evil in humanity. Clarke uses his abilities in a number of silly and selfish ways including spying on his attractive neighbor (Kate Beckinsale), giving himself ripped abs, and granting his dog the power of speech, voiced by Robin Williams in one of his final roles. Absolutely Anything reunites Jones with his Monty Python colleagues John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle and Michael Palin for the first time since 1983's The Meaning of Life. The comedic legends lend their voices to the power-hungry aliens who judge Pegg's character from space, determined to end »

Watch: First Trailer For 'Absolutely Anything' With Simon Pegg, The Voices Of Monty Python Members & Robin Williams

10 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Monty Python fans have a few treats to celebrate this year. At the recent Tribeca Film Festival, there was a three-day celebration of the iconic comedy troupe, including a 40th anniversary screening of "Monty Python And The Holy Grail," with all the living members in attendance. And later this summer, their voices will be heard in the comedy "Absolutely Anything," along with the late Robin Williams, in the Simon Pegg led comedy, and the first trailer is here. Basically running with the same premise as "Bruce Almighty," the story follows a disillusioned schoolteacher who finds himself imbued with the power to make anything happen, thanks to some aliens who watch everything unfold from space. And so the hapless man does everything from make his dog talk, his dog's poop pickup itself, while giving himself a bigger penis. Yes, that is the basic level of humor here.  Co-starring Kate Beckinsale, Eddie Izzard, »

Celebrating 40 Years of Monty Python and the Holy Grail

26 April 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

40 years ago, the British comedy sextet Monty Python released the hilarous Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Decades later, the film is still considered a comedy classic. Cinelinx looks back at the making of one of the great film parodies. It’s being released in certain theaters for special showings this week.

They were something completely different. When Monty Python’s Flying Circus debuted on BBC TV in 1969, they were unlike anything ever seen before and they became the comedy darlings of Britain. But it wasn’t until 1975—and the release of their second film Monty Python and the Holy Grail—that they made it big in America and became an international sensation.

 By 1975, the Monty Python comedy troupe—comprised of John Cleese, Terry Jones, Graham Chapman, Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam—had already finished their legendary run on the TV show Monty Python’s Flying Circus and »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

15 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Generally, a film festival is a place to watch, well, films. But some of the hottest tickets at the 2015 Tribeca Fest are likely to be for events that feature a live performance as well as a screening.

“We’re New York,” says Tribeca Film Festival programming director Genna Terranova. “We have theater, we have comedy, we have music, we have everything. The idea of combining all these wonderful arts that New York celebrates throughout the year into events with cinema only felt natural.”

An April 22 screening will remind viewers that in the silent film era, live music was a big part of the attraction for audiences. Harold Lloyd’s 1928 silent comedy “Speedy,” about a dedicated Yankees fan, will get a new score by DJ Z-Trip, who will perform it live.

Watch: Terry Gilliam's Animated Title Sequence For 'Cry Of The Banshee' Starring Vincent Price

11 February 2015 9:27 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Pop quiz – what is Terry Gilliam’s earliest credited work on a feature film? If you guessed anything “Monty Python” related, you’re actually a tad off. A year before “Monty Python’s Fliegender Zirkus,” and five years before “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” the actor/writer/director/everything man proved just how much of a film factotum he really is. Though he’d been working in TV since the late '60s, Gilliam’s first feature credit came in 1970 in the form of title designer for “Cry of the Banshee.” If you’re thinking, “Cry of the what?” you’re probably not alone. At all. Directed by Gordon Hessler — whose credits also include “Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park” and twelve episodes of “CHiPs” — the film stars Vincent Price as Lord Edward Whitman, an evil Elizabethan nobleman who tries to exterminate an entire coven of witches.
