Fantastic Fest 2017 Review: Brawl In Cell Block 99 Repeatedly Punched its Way into My Action-Loving Heart

24 September 2017 6:21 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When we meet Bradley Thomas (Vince Vaughn) in Brawl in Cell Block 99, things could not be worse for our protagonist. A former boxer who has struggled to turn his life around by making an honest living has just lost his job due to the economy, and as he makes his way home early to lick his wounds, he discovers that his wife, Lauren (Jennifer Carpenter), has been having an affair. Not content with the direction his life is headed, Bradley decides to go back to being a drug runner for his dealer pal, Gil (Marc Blucas), but things go south after a pick-up goes badly, and Mr. Thomas finds himself being incarcerated for his crimes after he refuses to snitch on his boss.

All this seems like a rather run-of-the-mill set-up for a grungy revenge-fueled actioner, but what follows in Cb 99 is anything but predictable, as writer/director S. Craig Zahler »

Kristen Bell, Joel McHale and More Mock Castle-Like TV in Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television Trailer

22 September 2017 8:42 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“You’re not gonna shoot Kristen Bell.”

We’re not entirely sure why the Good Place star utters that line in the recently released trailer for Ryan Hansen Solves Crime on Television, or why she’s dressed as Frozen‘s Elsa while doing so, but who cares? We’re in.

The forthcoming comedy, starring Bell’s Veronica Mars co-star Ryan Hansen and The Handmaid’s Tale‘s Samira Wiley, follows a fictional Los Angeles Police Department program that pairs actors with homicide detectives so the former can use their “actor skills” to help solve murders. Hansen plays a version of himself, »

Samira Wiley Returns to Comedy in the Trailer for ‘Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television’ (Exclusive) — Watch

22 September 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been a breakthrough year for Samira Wiley; the explosive talent who first made a splash on “Orange Is the New Black” picked up an Emmy nomination for her sharp performance as Moira in Reed Morano’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.” This fall, Wiley returns to her comedic roots with a Hollywood-set buddy comedy from the director of “Dodgeball,” “Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes on Television.” The Hollywood satire makes fun of its semi-unknown titular star while boasting guest appearances from Kristen Bell, Joe McHale, and Jon Cryer. The eight-episode, half-hour comedy released its first official trailer today, and it’s full of snappy jabs and famous people making fun of themselves.

The series stars Hansen (“Veronica Mars”) as himself, a member of an Lapd task force which partners actors with homicide detectives so they can use their “actor skills” to help solve murders. Wiley plays as his no-nonsense partner, »

The Cannonball Run: new details on the remake

6 August 2017 3:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Aug 7, 2017

The new take on The Cannonball Run will be making a few changes...

One of the many remakes the Hollywood is developing is a new take on The Cannonball Run, the series of films that saw assorted famous faces driving cars cross-country, and generating laughs as they did so. The remake to this one is in the hands of director Rawson Marshall Thurber, still perhaps best known for Dodgeball, but also the director behind Central Intelligence and the upcoming Dwayne Johnson vehicle, Skyscraper (that starts filming this month, for a release next summer).

Thurber has been chatting about the direction he’s looking to go with his version of The Cannonball Run, and it’s clear he’s not going for a straight remake. Chatting to Slashfilm he said that “I think we’re living in a post or current Fast & Furious world. So I don’t »

Game Grumps Offers Preview For ‘Good Game’ Ahead Of August 30 Premiere On YouTube Red

4 August 2017 9:50 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Two of the most popular creators on YouTube are ready to get their game on. Game Grumps, the channel hosted by wisecracking players Arin Hanson and Dan Avidan, has shared the trailer for its upcoming series Good Game, which will arrive for YouTube Red subscribers on August 30.

In Good Game, Hanson and Avidan will portray a pair of couch potatoes who decide to take charge of their lives by participating in a fictional e-sports tournament called "Blood Match." In order to vie for the title, they must first cobble together a team of misfits who can match the skills of the competition's robotic, precise favorites. The conceit sounds a lot like Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, but with a modern day twist that could attract viewers from one of the entertainment industry's most passionate communities. Comedy nerds will also dig the presence of Community and Rick & Morty's Dan Harmon, who »

Cast Of ‘Dodgeball’ Reunites For Charity Drive On Omaze

15 June 2017 4:28 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

In 2004, the movie Dodgeball instructed viewers how to dodge a wrench and dodge a ball, introduced them to ESPN8 (The Ocho), and delivered “A True Underdog Story.” 13 years later (where does the time go?) the cast of that comedy has reunited to raise funding for a good cause. Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and the rest of the Dodgeball principals have joined forces with Omaze for a charity drive that will deliver a boost to the Stiller Foundation.

As with other Omaze drives, backers can donate to the Dodgeball campaign in exchange for digital raffle tickets that represent chances to win incredible rewards. In this case, the grand prize is a trip to the gym, where a select group of winners will meet the Dodgeball actors and join them for a game between Average Joe’s and the formidable Globo Gym Purple Cobras. All money raised through the Omaze initiative will head to the Stiller Foundation, »
