‘Alien: Covenant’ Star Danny McBride Talks Working With Ridley Scott, ‘Vice Principals’ and His ‘Halloween’ Reboot

19 May 2017 12:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Danny McBride may not be the first name to come to mind when thinking of the “Alien” franchise, but the man of many talents is ready to change that with the latest sequel.

In Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant,” McBride plays Tennessee, a member of the titular colony ship, the latest group of space travelers to be terrorized by the classic extra-terrestrial monsters.

As one of the few members of the “The Four Guild Club” (DGA, SAG, WGA, and PGA), among company including Seth Rogen, Ben Stiller, and Jordan Peele, the multi-hyphenate is not only busy in front of the screen, but behind it as well. In an interview with Variety, McBride talked about landing the role of Tennessee, the final season of “Vice Principals,” and where his new take on the “Halloween” franchise stands.

I Always Felt Loaded Weapon was an Underrated Comedy

8 April 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The 90s was a fantastic time period for comedies.  When you look back, these are the years that brought us movies like Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Ace Ventura, Dumb and Dumber, American Pie,  There’s Something About Mary, and a bunch of others.   This is the decade where the Farrelly brothers came to prominence and comedy began to shift.  You saw much less “stupid” humor and much more subtle, referential type humor.   Following these films, the year 2000 saw Scary Movie, 2003 we saw Old School and eventually comedies would evolve into the Judd Apatow and Todd Phillips blends you see

Scenes from Airplane! Compared with Zero Hour (1957), The Film That inspired Airplane!

1 April 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for the movie Airplane!  I mean how could you not?  This is the movie that truly started all parody movies.   Everything you see today in the “Scary Movie” franchise is because of Airplane!  Remember Hot Shots?  That’s because of Airplane!.    If it weren’t for the Zucker brothers we never would have gotten Not Another Teen Movie which I happened to love by the way.   “Surely you can’t be serious.  I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley.”  “Yes Stewardess, I speak Jive.”  I mean there are countless lines in this film

Scooperhero News – Following Ben Affleck’s departure from the director’s chair, Warner Bros. might’ve already found a replacement for The Batman – which although they’re “very happy” with the script, still probably won’t be as good as The Lego Batman Movie released last week. Maybe that’ll change if Arnold Schwarzenegger joins the Dceu. Because that went so well last time.

X-Men: Supernova still seems to be about the Dark Phoenix Saga, and Josh Brolin needs to get used to talking about comic book movies again. He’s already potentially leaked one name for Avengers: Infinity War.

The duo behind Epic Movie & Meet the Spartans turn their sights to Star Wars

After winning some goodwill as two of the half-dozen screenwriters responsible for Scary Movie, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer spent the next seventeen years turning that success into a series of increasingly terrible parody movies such as Epic Movie, Meet The Spartans and Disaster Movie.

Star Wars Spoof On The Way From Scary Movie Team

8 February 2017 2:27 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With the massive success of last year’s The Force Awakens and now more recently Rogue One, it was probably only a matter of time before someone decided to cash in with a Star Wars parody film, and it turns out that someone will be Jason Friedberg along with his writing/directing partner Aaron Seltzer.

Their names may not be too familiar to most, but these are the guys behind the rash of spoof films that dominated the noughties, which began with the first Scary Movie and mercifully concluded (or so we thought) with 2013’s The Starving Games. Now, the duo are back in business, and have turned their attention to the galaxy far, far away with Star Worlds Episode Xxxive=MC2: The Force Awakens The Last Jedi Who Went Rogue.

Yes, that’s actually the title. Catchy, no?

The project will be produced by Covert Media’s CEO Paul Hanson, »

Newswire: Scary Movie team to finally take Star Wars down a peg

8 February 2017 2:06 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

For years, moviegoers have enjoyed the antics of the Skywalker family, the Solo family, and the Lobot family in the Star Wars movies, but like all things that bring people happiness, it’s only a matter of time before some too-cool-for-school jokesters decide to poke fun at the series’ more ridiculous aspects. Well, that day has finally come, as comedy genius Mel Brooks has just announced Spaceballs, a feature-length Star Wars parody starring Rick Moranis, Daphne Zuniga, and Bill Pullman. Also, the year is 1987. Quick, warn the world about Donald Trump!

Seriously, though, Variety is reporting that Scary Movie masterminds Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have announced a feature-length Star Wars parody of their own called—deep breath—Star Worlds Episode Xxxive=MC2: The Force Awakens The Last Jedi Who Went Rogue.
