Fox Developing ‘Mattress World’ Comedy with Gail Berman’s Jackal Group (Exclusive)

15 August 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Gail Berman’s Jackal Group has reunited with writer Jay Lacopo to develop a workplace comedy set in a San Fernando Valley mattress store.

“Mattress World” revolves around a failed entrepreneur who retreats to the mattress store he once managed with the goal of making it the valley’s No. 1 mattress store. Lacopo worked with Berman and Jackal Group last season on the short-lived Fox comedy “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life.”

Lacopo is writing the pilot and exec producing with Berman and Jackal Group’s Joe Earley.

Jackal Group is getting ready to raise the curtain on its new production of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” which bows Oct. 20 on Fox.

The company has TV projects in the works at Lifetime, USA Network, MTV and other nets. Jackal also has film development percolating, including “The Addams Family” at MGM and an Elvis Presley biopic at Warner Bros.

Berman’s banner signed a wide-ranging TV deal »

Top 10 Box Office Takeaways: How ‘Suicide Squad’ Beat Bad Reviews

7 August 2016 3:02 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With “Suicide Squad,” Warner Bros. and D.C. Comics for the second time delivered an opening competitive with a Disney/Marvel superhero movie. Its strong August-record-breaking $135 million debut also kept the recent late summer rebound alive. The question is: Will it hold or suffer the fate of  “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and fade quickly? Whatever its future, “Suicide Squad” marks a welcome start late in a bumpy summer.

Part of that seasonal trend  is steep early-week drops for some live-action franchises—neither “Jason Bourne” nor “Star Trek Beyond” show much strength after strong openings. And Stx boasts a sleeper comedy hit driven by women– “Bad Moms” is thriving and looks to have a shot at reaching as much as $100 million.

5 Other Movie Franchises That Crashed Onto Television

21 July 2016 5:06 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

News this week came in that the final planned Divergent Series movie would be skipping the theaters and go direct to television/DVD.  It’s a rare move for such a major studio franchise to make, and it got me to thinking about other movie series that fizzled and did the same.  Come inside to check out a history of downward sliding franchises! 

If I come off sounding a bit harsh about all this, it’s mostly due to the fact that it’s such a bizarre situation.  It’s been awhile since a studio franchise had to dropped down to direct-to-television and it’s not a good thing.  Sure, Lionsgate is trying to spin the information that it’s part of a planned way to jumpstart a spin-off TV series...but the reality is this isn’t how they wanted The Divergent Series to end.  

It’s a failure, »

The Bottom Shelf: Return Of The Killer Tomatoes, He Never Died

Nick Aldwinckle Aug 10, 2016

Blood Bath, The Beast With 1,000,000 Eyes and Return Of The Killer Tomatoes: it's our latest DVD and Blu-ray round-up...

Britain is in a state of turmoil, with Brexit, political leadership spinning out of control and social media civil war already underway. As such, it has perhaps never been a more appropriate time for a release of John De Bello and Stephen Peace’s 1988 meditation on the path towards peace and racial tolerance, Return Of The Killer Tomatoes, out on Arrow Bluray.

Set ten years after the events of the Great Tomato War, as depicted in uncompromising detail in De Bello and Peace’s earlier epic, Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes, tomatoes – following the mutant, sentient, strain responsible for the deaths of many citizens – are now outlawed in the Us. As with all the best banned items, killer tomatoes have now gone underground, with a thriving black market »

Barry Sonnenfeld has made some fine entertainment over the course of his career. In the 1990s, Sonnenfeld had a terrific run, directing Get ShortyMen in Black, and The Addams Family movies. Before turning towards directing, as a cinematographer, he shot Raising Arizona, Miller’s Crossing, Big, Misery, and Throw Momma from the Train.

Clip and images from season 3 of All Hail King Julien

15 June 2016 12:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With season three of DreamWorks Animation’s All Hail King Julien set to premiere on Netflix this Friday (June 17th), we’ve got a batch of images from the show, along with a clip that sees Princess Julienne (Angelica Huston) and Prince Barty (John Michael Higgins), King Julien’s dramatic and needy parents, arriving for unannounced for a royal visit. Check them out here…

This season, alongside Danny Jacobs’ Emmy®-winning comedic work as King Julien, All Hail King Julien has attracted accomplished talent with A-level guest stars including Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Angelica Huston (The Addams Family, The Royal Tenenbaums), Henry Winkler (Happy Days, Arrested Development), and John Michael Higgins (Pitch Perfect, Yes Man).

You might be familiar with the Emmy®-winning show, but did you know that All Hail King Julien isn’t just a tropical adventure for children? In fact, the show has become a mecca of pop culture phenomena and not-so-subtle adult humor, bringing the jungle of Madagascar closer to modern society than you might think. With skewering parallels to our addictive consumption of coffee and ridiculous “high fashion” trends, biting representations of class and beauty standards, and emotional characters that challenge stereotypical gender roles, All Hail King Julien produces witty observations that are meant for modern-day thinkers of all ages.

All Hail King Julien season 3 lands on Netflix on Friday, June 17th.

John Ostrander: Strip Grade

22 May 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I’m not keen on moving these days. When I switch my homestead to a new location, I have to find all the spots I was taking for granted – food stores, gas stations, mechanics, restaurants and so on. It usually also means I have to find a new newspaper. Yes, I’ve just proclaimed myself to be a dinosaur and I still read the newspaper every morning over breakfast.  Yes, I know they offer electronic editions but I like one I can hold in my hands.

Assuming there is more than one local newspaper (or local-ish), I have to make a choice as to which one I’ll read. I have two primary criterions – where they fall on the political spectrum and what comic strips they have. The latter may be more important to me than the former. I was raised in a Republican household in Chicago so we got »

Marvelous DA7E: Captain Marvel Exists, Avengers 3 & 4 Transform

4 May 2016 2:14 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

There was a song I was taught in school when we were learning how to write all the letters that was set to The Addams Family theme song tune. It went “Start at the top!” *snap snap* “Start at the top!” *snap snap* … etc. It meant that when you are writing print (non-cursive) letters, you start the lines from the top of the shape. It comes to mind when I start writing about superhero movie news a lot, because I’m not sure what “the top” is, but I think I should start there.

I’ll take a bold guess at topness and touch on something else before we get to Captain America: Civil War and changes with Infinity War Parts 1 and 2.

We’ve heard a rumor that Marvel Studios has found their Captain Marvel (!!!), but is a secret and we don’t know what actress got the part. The »

Plus The A-Team and 21 Jump Street got two very different big screen updates, just to name a […]

Kevin Spacey Is A Talking Cat In New Trailer For 'Nine Lives'

15 April 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are a lot of questions one could ask about "Nine Lives," but mostly they revolve how anybody convinced Kevin Spacey, Christopher Walken, and Jennifer Garner to star in this thing. Granted, they all probably got some nice vacation money for doing it, but at what cost? Read More: The Essentials: 6 Kevin Spacey Performances Regardless, there is a weird can't-look-away quality to the movie from Barry Sonnenfeld ("Men In Black," "The Addams Family"), which centers on a high-powered businessman who is cursed with living as a cat until he learns to be more attentive to his family. Here's the official synopsis, which is way too long for this kind of movie: Tom Brand (Kevin Spacey) is a daredevil billionaire at the top of his game.  His eponymous company FireBrand is nearing completion on its greatest achievement to date - the tallest skyscraper in the northern hemisphere.

Neil Patrick Harris Closes Deal To Headline Netflix’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events

14 March 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

First linked with the coveted part since back in January, it’s understood that How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris has finally closed a deal to join Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, the upcoming small-screen reboot of Lemony Snicket and Daniel Handler’s dark family drama.

Stepping into the crooked and elongated shoes of Count Olaf – a role originally portrayed by Jim Carrey in the 2004 fantasy adventure – Harris’ character will be the bane of the Baudelaires, a distant relative who welcomes Violet, Klaus, and Sunny into his home soon after their parents pass away during a, you guessed it, unfortunate event. In the novels, Olaf is a malevolent and conniving trickster, and while we readily expect that to carry over to Netflix’s TV reboot, the show will likely have a slightly lighter tone to ensure it reaches a larger demographic.

A Series Of Unfortunate Events Expands Its Cast For Netflix

27 January 2016 3:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As it continues to expand its roster of commissioned programming, Netflix is unarguably going from strength to strength. This trend continues with its upcoming show, the Paramount TV-produced A Series Of Unfortunate Events – which is an episodic telling of the popular series of children’s novels, previously produced as a Jim Carrey movie. Now, the series has now cast two more of its key characters, as the project nears production.

The source material comprises 13 children’s novels by the author Daniel Handler – writing under the pseudonym Lemony Snicket. It centres on three siblings – Violet, Klaus and Sunny Baudelaire – who are orphaned when their parents perish in a mysterious and tragic fire. The children find themselves in the care of their sinister uncle, Count Olaf, whose primary motivation for welcoming the trio is limited to his pursuit of their considerable inheritance. The dark tale encompasses Olaf’s attempts to swindle the children, »
