10 Cent Pistol opens up with two police officers investigating a silent alarm at the front door of Harris (Thomas Ian Nicholas, American Pie, Halloween Resurrection). His reaction to find the police at his door proves to be of suspicion as the sweat rolls down and his need to get them to leave only encourages the officers to investigate. Upon entering, they are greeted by Danneel (Jena Malone, Donnie Darko), the coy damsel in a tight blue mini dress who makes every word sound innocent, yet seductive. Harris and Daneel lead the officers into the living room where they find Easton and Jake, two even more suspicious characters sitting on the couch.
This instantly pulls the audience in as we’re not entirely sure who exactly is hiding what in this scenario and if the cops are going to find anything. The bad guy in this scene is quickly revealed via »

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s The Office gave us so much, not least its intermittently excellent Us remake and the many other sitcoms it inspired. Its hand-held single camera style and wryly observed mundanity became so seminal that for a period in 2009, it was technically illegal to launch a new Us sitcom that didn’t emulate them.
Thus arrived Modern Family and Parks And Recreation, two shows filmed in the mockumentary style for no discernible reason besides a love of The Office and its Us remake. (Parks And Rec grew out of NBC originally »

On top of the "American Pie" and Guest movies, Coolidge has memorably appeared on the small screen in "Seinfeld," "Sex and the City" and most recently "2 Broke Girls," and in the two "Legally Blonde" films as a daffy beautician who perfects the Bend and Snap to bag a man. »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

Of the hundreds of films screened at festivals across the nation only a handful will wind up at your local theaters, and that goes for those lucky enough to have been viewed at the growingly prestigious Tribeca Film Festival (Tff).
A month has passed, and the media has already unremembered the 14th edition of Tribeca, which had an overall attendance of 467,000 -- and now it's beginning to forget Cannes and its offerings, such as Todd Haynes' Carol, which already has a 2016 Oscar buzz surrounding it. And by tomorrow, anticipation will start growing for the Telluride, Toronto, and New York Film Festivals, and so forth. A sisyphean cycle if there ever was one. But thanks to some wise studios distributing several of Tribeca's offerings, this year's Fest's imprint might last a little longer.
There's the hauntingly exuberant documentary The Wolfpack (opening June 12th) that, pre-tff, started garnering plaudits at Sundance. »

This is the sound of David Letterman retiring.
Over the last few weeks, viewers of the veteran latenight host’s “Late Show” on CBS have been treated to a series of once-in-a-lifetime musical moments: John Mayer crooning Don McLean’s “American Pie”; Tracy Chapman doing a stark rendition of Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me”; John Fogerty doing a punky mashup of his Creedence Clearwater Revival hits; and an enigmatic Bob Dylan crooning the standard “The Night We Called It A Day,” an appropriate shout-out to a TV figure who will make his last “Late Show” appearance during a late-afternoon taping Wednesday. And, in a nod to Letterman’s stated fondness for acerbic songwriter Warren Zevon, the show has in its final days featured a rendition of “Mutineer” by Jason Isbell and Amanda Shires and a digital-only take on “Desperadoes Under The Eaves” by Dawes.

Tara Reid has hinted a new 'American Pie' film is in the works. The 39-year-old actress starred in the 1999 original but has now suggested a fifth theatrical film could be added to the series, with the movie set in Las Vegas. Speaking on Kiis FM's 'Kyle & Jackie O Show', she said: ''There's actually talks about [a fifth movie], they may be doing it in Las Vegas.'' The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star - who played Vicky in the films - added she is eager to return to the franchise, as the theatrical films have grossed more than $989 million worldwide. It was previously believed 'American Reunion', which hit cinema screens in 2012 following a nine-year hiatus, would be the final film in the series, but bosses were reportedly impressed by how it performed at the box office and are keen to capitalise on its success. However, the ' »
The fourth American Pie film to make it inside a cinema - American Reunion - may not have been a huge hit in America, but it certainly delivered elsewhere in the world. The movie took $57m in the States, adding a more than healthy $177m elsewhere on the planet. It would be fair to say its $234m box office haul more than paid for the film's production. And for a decent party afterwards.
Around the time of the movie's release, there was chatter about a potential American Pie 5, although things have been quiet on that front for a while. However, in a new interview, Tara Reid - who played Vicky in the films - has hinted there may be some progress.
"There's actually talks", she confirmed to the Kyle & Jackie O Show in Australia, »
'About a Boy,' with Hugh Grant and Baby 'About a Boy' movie review: Some men should remain islands On the surface, Chris and Paul Weitz's 2002 movie About a Boy has a profound, affecting premise. No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. With the above statement, seventeenth-century English poet John Donne reached beyond the apparent isolation of each individual by affirming the invisible oneness that encompasses all of humankind – and, why not, all living creatures. »

Tara Reid has hinted that a fifth theatrical film in the series is in the works, and will go down the Hangover route by taking place in Las Vegas.
"There's actually talks about [a fifth movie], they may be doing it in Las Vegas," she told Kiis FM's Kyle & Jackie O Show today (May 11).
Reid played Vicky in the American Pie films, and when asked if she would return for a fifth, she responded with a passionate "yes".
Not including the straight-to-dvd spin-off films, the American Pie series has grossed a combined $989 million worldwide.
Success in Hollywood is a tricky game! Elizabeth Banks has enjoyed a super successful career as an actress and is now jumping behind the camera as she directs the highly anticipated a cappella sequel "Pitch Perfect 2". But getting there wasn't easy, as the 41-year-old admits that not every actress in her "age group" has been so lucky. "There was a group of us girls coming up. A lot of us are surviving. Some of us are not," she explains in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "I used to go to auditions with Tara Reid. So, you know, we didn't all make it. We're not all still here. I do love 'Sharknado,'" she quickly added. Ironically, the two have a lot more in common than one would think. The "American Pie" actress starred in a recent parody of "The Hunger Games" called"The Hungover Game," spoofing Banks' character Effie. »

The 2011 ice hockey comedy Goon was, by distance, one of the most violent films of that year. It was also really rather good. Starring Seann William Scott and Jay Baruchel, the plan for some time had been to make a sequel to the movie. And finally, that sequel is happening.
Seann William Scott confirmed the news on Reddit, where he's just done one of its Ama whatsits. He wrote that "I did a bit of fight training for Goon. For Goon 2, I’ve been fight-training for the past month, and next month in May I start working with an Mma fighter, and then some skating (obviously, a lot of skating). We start shooting Goon 2 in mid-June, and if everybody does their jobs and we execute the amazing script »
Few would have expected Goon, a film about a flailing hockey player attempting to make an impact as an Enforcer in the minor leagues, to carve out an audience when it released in 2011. But carve out an audience it did, and now star Seann William Scott is dusting off his kit to take to the ice once more, as it’s been confirmed that Goon 2 will begin filming in mid-June.
Speaking during a Reddit Ama, the American Pie actor offered up a brief update about the status of the sequel, the intensity of the training, and why the hockey continuation could prove to be a hit amongst fans if the script by Jay Barauchel is given the proper treatment. Here’s what William Scott had to say on the matter at hand:
“Heh! Well, I did a bit of fight training for Goon. For Goon 2, I’ve been fight-training for the past month, »

“Live from New York, it’s the Tribeca Film Festival.”
I’m sure that is how some people’s coverage of this year’s Tff started off. It makes sense considering the opening night film was a documentary about Saturday Night Live! Plus, some writers can’t help but resort to puns and cheap gimmicks to appear witty. Hell, I used it and haven’t even seen the film yet. But my TriBeCa experience didn’t start off with belly laughs. Instead it began with a double feature of films about shitty parents.
The Adderall Diaries stars James Franco as an author struggling with writer’s block, which could be the inspiration for my deconstruction of an opening to this recap. The film is based on the memoir of the same title by Stephen Elliott. Franco’s version of Elliott deals with drug addiction (mostly Adderall), a Bdsm fetish that could ruin a burgeoning relationship, »
