‘Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday’ Plans Revealed By Netflix

25 February 2015 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The title of the long-gestating third Pee-Wee Herman film has been unveiled as Pee-wee’s Big Holiday.

The new movie, to be streamed on Netflix, sees Pee-Wee become “inspired to take his first ever holiday after a fateful meeting with a mysterious stranger”. Story-wise, the Judd Apatow production should feature manchild Herman’s brand of warped eccentricity, famous to fans of the character’s output. Tim Burton’s Pee-wee’s Big Adventure (1985) saw a road trip including a deceased trucker named Large Marge, and the underrated Big Top Pee-wee (1988) had a circus blow into the hero’s farm during a storm.

Created by controversial actor/comedian Paul Reubens some 35 years ago, Pee-Wee also ran kids TV show Pee-Wee’s Playhouse that had Laurence Fishburne among the cast. He was resurrected by Reubens (now in his sixties) in 2010, and after some time trying to get something cinematic off the ground the »

Failed TV pilots that paved the way for breakout hits

24 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Had these pilots been given the green light, we might have been without Breaking Bad, 24, Hannibal, Community and more…

It’s not all grumble and moan round here when TV networks decline to pick up pilots. Sometimes, we’re even grateful.

Hindsight teaches that every so often, passing on a particular show is the best thing a channel could have done. Not ordering one pilot to series spurs its creators on to start another, and frees up its cast to join new projects.

Had the failures below all thrived, there’s a chance we could now be living in a world with no Breaking Bad, Hannibal, or even South Park. Had these pilots gone on to enjoy healthy, lengthy lives, then Jack Bauer, Oberyn Martell, Chandler Bing and more might all be unrecognisable today.

Here then, are the TV pilots we’re grateful weren’t taken to series because their »

Pee-Wee is coming back. In a big way.

Film Review: ‘The Duff’

20 February 2015 6:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A smart, snappy “Pygmalion” for the millennial age, “The Duff” gives a modernized makeover to a classical scenario involving an outcast who tries to fit in with the help of a good-looking, popular mentor. The ugly duckling in this case is Bianca (“Arrested Development’s” Mae Whitman), a high-school senior who’s initially defined by her denim overalls, penchant for burping, and extremely attractive and sought-after BFFs, Jess (Skyler Samuels) and Casey (Bianca Santos). Oblivious to the fact that she’s the most ignored member of her friendship threesome, Bianca finds her world upended when her lifelong neighbor, quarterback Wes (Robbie Amell), bluntly informs her that she’s a “Duff” – the Designated Ugly Fat Friend who functions as the gatekeeper for those interested in finding out about, or getting closer to, her more desirable comrades. Thus an identity crisis is born, one that director Ari Sandel and writer Josh A. Cagan »

Box Office Predictions: 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Will Double Down over Oscar Weekend

19 February 2015 7:56 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Fifty Shades of Grey won't hold up spectacularly, but it won't crater either, as the audience does skew slightly older than your typical Twilight crowd. Then again, it doesn't have Valentine's Day. Hmmm, I still can't dip it more than 55 percent as the audience I've spoken to "enjoys" it as a girl's night out. Hey, guys get dozens of nonsense films like this a year, meant only for them, so I can hardly begrudge a terrible movie aimed at an underserved demo. $38.3 million is where I'm at, though there's sooooo much wiggle room on either side. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 looks dead on arrival, poor reviews and no John Cusack sort of murdered it before it started. It's not as though John Cusack is a draw, it's more that a sequel should have the same cast if you want to recapture whatever magic was there. $13.8 million is clearly a sad call, »

Review: 'The Duff' Starring Mae Whitman, Bella Thorne, Ken Jeong, And More

19 February 2015 7:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For three seasons on "Arrested Development," Mae Whitman was drabbed down and good-naturedly played Ann Veal/Her/Bland aka George Michael Bluth's dull, unattractive girlfriend. And so, when it comes to "The Duff" — an acronym for Designated Ugly Fat Friend — choosing Whitman for the lead role fits in the weird space between obvious and ridiculous. It's obvious and reflexive if your only impression of the actress is from her days on the cult comedy, and ridiculous if you believe that in actual, regular reality, Whitman is anything like Ann. Believing that Whitman is the "ugly fat friend" is just one of the many things you'll have allow for if you have any chance of enduring this tedious teen comedy from beginning to end. The story centers on Bianca (Whitman), a high school senior with two conventionally "hot" best friends, Casey (Bianca Santos) and Jess (Skyler Samuels), and a crush on Vespa-riding, »

19 Action Heroes Who Need to Enter the Danger Zone on 'Archer'

19 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

"Archer" has never been shy on guest stars, including this week's visiting voice from Kumail Nanjiani. From Jeffrey Tambor pairing up with Jessica Walters for an "Arrested Development" reunion in Season 1 to Kenny Loggins checking in last year, "Archer" knows what talent to bring in as well as who to avoid. But other than the major get of grabbing Burt Reynolds to play himself in Season 3 — and the minor acquisition of Christian Slater last year — the FX animated series is light on big name action stars.  Clearly, Archer himself is a movie fan, as his consistent references to obscure cult classics of the '70s and '80s denotes. So we at Indiewire came up with a wishlist we think Codename Duchess would approve of, trying to avoid anyone who doesn't fit the show's mold or who may be a little bit less than "spy" material (sorry fans of Sly and Ahnuld, »

The Duff Review

18 February 2015 11:37 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mae Whitman is one of those enormously talented young actors that has been waiting in the wings for a lead role for some time. The 26-year-old already has 119 IMDb credits to her name, breaking out in the mid-1990s with small turns as George Clooney and Bill Pullman’s daughter in One Fine Day and Independence Day, respectively. She has chops for both comedy and drama, and is able to squeeze out droll laughs as the nondescript Ann Veal on Arrested Development and then break your heart as the insecure Mary Elizabeth in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Whitman has such tremendous ability on the screen that it is a pity her first major leap above the marquee is in such a mediocre film. The Duff, based on Kody Keplinger’s novel, is a silly, clichéd and rarely convincing high-school comedy – perhaps because Whitman is too fresh and beautiful »

The Duff first look review – brutally honest but funny guide to high school

18 February 2015 10:09 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This emo teen movie has a refreshingly believable heroine in Designated Ugly Fat Friend Bianca, remarkably played by Mae Whitman

The Duff opens with a light jab at The Breakfast Club and concludes with a moment straight out of Pretty in Pink. It’s extremely ambitious, at least as far as emo high school movies are concerned. While its opening is too reliant on a Clarissa Explains It All-like voiceover, and some heavy-handed anti-bullying messaging feels shoehorned, there are stretches in which The Duff soars, nailing scene after funny scene with an honest spirit rarely seen in mainstream teen films. Its lead character, Bianca Piper, is a special breed of dork who is not completely socially inept. She’s one who weathers high school’s dramas with the added burden of self-awareness. It’s a character you really don’t see much in the movies, which is even stranger, »
