New Sausage Party red band trailer and Q & A with Seth Rogen New Sausage Party red band trailer and Q & A with Seth Rogen Adriana Floridia7/22/2016 2:41:00 Pm

Warning: Content May Offend

Seth Rogen really cares what you will think of his latest film, Sausage Party.

The R-Rated animated food adventure just got a brand new red band trailer, but we also caught up with Rogen and his crew at San Diego Comic-Con, where we got some inside scoop about the film. Ten years in the making, this was Rogen's chance to put his mark on the animated genre, after being inspired by Disney and Pixar for his whole life.

Here are five things we learned from Seth Rogen and the makers of Sausage Party at Comic-Con!

1. The idea originated at a dinner party

Conan O’Brien on Why He’s Happy to Return to Comic-Con This Week While Everyone Else Gets Political

21 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As several of his competitors headed to Cleveland for the Republican National Convention this week, Conan O’Brien went the other direction.

O’Brien is back at San Diego Comic-Con to tape episodes of his TBS talk show this Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. It’s the second year in a row for “Conan” at the city’s historic Spreckles Theater, and the host told IndieWire he’s much happier to be here.

“Last year was such an instant realization that this is perfect for us,” he said. “There’s an overlap between our fans and people who would be here anyway at Comic-Con. We’ve been referencing these comic myths for the entire time that I’ve been on television. Even my whole look is comic book-y. I’ve always looked like I’ve been animated!”

‘Fan-o-Rama — A Futurama Fan Film’ Trailer: Watch the Heartfelt Tribute to the Cult Cartoon

19 July 2016 4:50 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The fan-made film “Star Trek: Axanar” may still be in limbo due to a pending lawsuit with Paramount Pictures and CBS, but it would appear that “Fan-o-Rama: A Futurama Fan Film” has avoided the legal wrath of 20th Century Fox. The first trailer for the film has been released, introducing viewers to Fry and Bender’s “single-minded mission for the sweet elixir of life: beer.”

The filmmakers have given themselves a Q rating (for “questionable”), as “audiences will no doubt question the creators’ motives, self-respect, and sanity.” What may first surprise viewers is that “Fan-o-Rama” is a live-action affair, with practical effects and prosthetic costumes that bring to mind a “Mario” or “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie from the early ’90s.

The film will be produced by Cartwright, alongside fellow Spotted Cow executives Peter Kjenaas and Monica Gil, and is currently out to writers to adapt. It is scheduled for a 2017 production start.

Preacher Recap: To Hell and Back

17 July 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Ignoring the sound advice that Kenny Rogers offered us all in “The Gambler,” Preacher’s Jesse in this week’s episode acted like he didn’t know when to fold ’em. As a result, we were left anticipating an appearance by the ultimate Special Guest Star. Or disaster. Or, most likely, both. What in “the god of meat’s” name am I going on about?

Emmys 2016 Trivia: Amy Poehler & Tina Fey Shared A Nod & 20 Other Wild Things About This Year’s Nominations

14 July 2016 1:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made history Thursday morning. The pals were nominated in the Guest Actress in a Comedy Emmy category for hosting “Saturday Night Live.”

That’s not unusual — “SNL” hosts are nominated for Emmys all the time. But here’s what’s unique: Poehler and Fey were nominated as a single, combined entity. Earlier this year, the TV Academy accepted their joint submission, and their names appeared together on nomination ballots.

That’s never happened in an acting category before because, well, a person is generally one person. But this was a unique circumstance: “SNL” guest hosts are eligible for guest star Emmys – but usually even comedy teams are nominated separately. (For example, Keegan-Michael Key is nominated this year for “Key & Peele” in the supporting comedy actor category, but Jordan Peele is not. »

Why The ‘Ghostbusters’ Backlash Is A Sexist Control Issue

14 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When I was 11, I saw “Ghostbusters.” I thought it was funny.

Since the “Ghostbusters” reboot was announced, we’ve learned that, for a great many people, their emotional relationship with the original “Ghostbusters” is substantially more fraught. There were those who thrilled to the idea that, after 20-plus years of rumors and false starts, we’d finally get more “Ghostbusters.” And, there were those who objected to reviving the franchise, arguing that any attempt to recapture the original glory was doomed to fail.

Then there are the Ghostbros, the noisiest if not most numerous contingent, for whom reviving the franchise with women in the leading roles is the ultimate desecration. It would have been one thing to pass the torch, as Ivan Reitman had originally planned, with a sequel in which the classic quartet trained a newer, spryer group in the finer points of busting ghosts. But effectively redoing the »

A celebration of disembodied brains and heads in the movies

13 July 2016 8:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jul 14, 2016

We take a look at some of the most memorable and freaky floating brains and flying heads in the history of cinema...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for The Brain From The Planet Arous and Prometheus.

For some reason we've yet to discover, cinema has, for decades, been home to all manner of sentient, disembodied heads and floating brains. Note that we’re not talking about decapitations here - though goodness knows that cinema is home to plenty of those, from Japanese samurai epics to modern slasher horrors.

No, we’re talking about movies where heads and brains remain sentient even when they’re stuffed into jars or colossal things made of stone. Sometimes used for comedic effect, at other times for shock value, they’re a surprisingly common phenomenon in the movies. Here, we celebrate a few of our absolute favourites - though you’re sure »

Mike Gold: The Cursed Earth Is Whole Again!

13 July 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Judge Dredd: The Cursed Earth Uncensored • Writers: Pat Mills, John Wagner, Chris Lowder • Artists: Brian Bolland, Mick McMahon • Rebellion A/S, $35.00 hardcover, $15.00 Kindle edition. 208 pages.

Almost 40 years ago, I was sitting in my office at DC Comics in Rockefeller Plaza creatively shirking my work when the mail room guy wheeled up to my desk and dropped off a package. It was from my friend Richard Burton, then a major comics fanzine editor in England. It contained the first three issues of a brand new weekly comic book titled 2000 Ad, along with a note from Richard noting he would be curious as to my opinion. Hey, free comics for a letter? Fine by me.

I proceeded to read this new anthology comic. Lucky for me, it is perfectly legitimate to read comics on the job when you’re working at a comic book publishing house. The first issue was great fun, »

11 Celebrated & Iconic Seats and Sofas

13 July 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Couches, sofas, chairs and thrones – these might seem to be some of the more mundane props on TV but they’re often seen the most frequently. Distinctive Chesterfields, a handmade furniture manufacturer based in Yorkshire, are celebrating the most iconic and famous of all seats in TV history with 11 illustrated images.

The Iron Throne

“The breath of the greatest dragon forged the Iron Throne…the swords of the vanquished, a thousand them, melted together like so many candles.”

– Viserys Targaryen

Located in the Great Hall of the Red Keep beneath the seven-pointed star of the Faith of the Seven and commissioned by King Joffrey, Game of Thrones’ Iron Throne is perhaps the most iconic in the series, forged from 1000 surrendered swords.

From a small meetup for diehard geeks, San Diego Comic-Con has grown into one of the largest and most feverishly anticipated pop-cultural events of the year.

2016 Comic-Con Film & TV Schedule

10 July 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The full film and TV line-up for this year's San Diego Comic Con has been released and more than ever before the balance has shifted from movies to television with many major shows and upcoming new series all getting panels or major screenings. Films on the other hand are few and far between, in fact Friday - once a film haven in Hall H - has given way completely to TV panels.

The highlights this year are obviously on Saturday in Hall H with Warners doing their panel in the morning which will likely include looks at "Wonder Woman," "The Lego Batman Movie," "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" and if we're lucky sneak peeks from "Kong: Skull Island" and "Justice League". At the end of the day is Marvel Studios' panel which this year is very promising with both "Doctor Strange" and "Guardians of the Galaxy 2 »

TV’s utter bastards: the happiest people in the world

5 July 2016 8:58 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jul 6, 2016

Ramsay Bolton, Lorne Malvo, Skeletor... Would that we could all share these smiling villains' lust for life.

Contains spoilers for Game Of Thrones season six.

I Can Make You Happy.

No, not the last-ditch plea of a sobbing spouse, but the title of a popular self-help book. From its cover, the soberly bespectacled face of demon headmaster Paul McKenna fixes you in its gaze and promises to grant your deepest desire: happiness. Using powerful psychological techniques, it says, this book and CD combo will help you experience greater joy than ever before.

It’s little wonder people bought it. Happiness is an elusive bugger - there one minute, undermined by a creeping sense of ultimate futility and inevitable decay the next. If only we could all be happy, we’d all be so much happier.

There are those with no need of Mr McKenna’s powerful psychological techniques of course. »

Wreck-It Ralph is heading back to the big screen, and this time, he’s wrecking the internet. The Oscar®-nominated Walt Disney Animation Studios team from the original film is reteaming for the follow-up, including director Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “The Simpsons”) and producer Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Bolt”). Phil Johnston (writer, “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Zootopia,” “Cedar Rapids”) joins Moore as director and a writer on the project. John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman return as the bad-guy-turned-good, Ralph, and the girl with the game-winning glitch, Vanellope von Schweetz.
