Life gets hard, that is just a fact (unless you’re a cat, then you pretty much sleep 14 hours a day while getting pets and life is good.) Regardless, we all have those times when you are having a bad day, week, month, or even year. If you are like me, sometimes you need a distraction that will take your mind off those pesky feelings for a little while and remind you that is okay and even possible to laugh.
These are the best shows to watch when you are feeling down and out! As someone who is utilizing this very method right now, I can verify every one of these shows is working to get me through my hard times.
There are a lot of things that make this show great. It is witty, hilarious, clever, and all together one of the most entertaining shows in existence. Tina Fey »

The first trailer has arrived online for Cooties, an upcoming horror comedy which sees a group of school teachers fighting for their lives against a horde of fourth grade zombies; check it out below after the official synopsis…
From the minds of Leigh Whannell (co-creator of Saw and Insidious) and Ian Brennan (co-creator of “Glee”), Cooties is a horror comedy with unexpected laughs and unapologetic thrills. When a cafeteria food virus turns elementary school children into little killer savages, a group of misfit teachers must band together to escape the playground carnage. The film stars Elijah Wood (Maniac, The Lord of the Rings), Rainn Wilson (“The Office”), and Alison Pill (“The Newsroom”) as teachers who fight to survive the mayhem while hilariously bickering in an uncomfortable love triangle on the worst Monday of their lives.
Cooties is set for release in the States on September 18th.

Inside Out, the latest in a long line of terrific films by Pixar, is a journey into the core of young Riley’s head, a mind powered by the emotions of Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear.
Much of the film’s pleasure comes from the interaction of these various emotions, and the directors Pete Docterand Ronnie del Carmen have assembled another top-notch ensemble of voice talent. Lewis Black plays anger and any that has seen his stand-up performances or regular appearances on The Daily Show can attest to the fitness of this decision. Mindy Kaling, whose role on “The Office” was quite celebrated, leading to her own show “The Mindy Kaling Project,” brings her own brand of sarcasm and sweetness to the role of disgust.
The film had its international debut at the Cannes Film Festival, and Cineplex had the pleasure of doing this exclusive interview with Black and »

It’s damnably hard to get the tone for a horror-comedy right – just ask Kevin Smith. Luckily, the trailer for Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion’s Cooties seems to suggest that this gore-filled laugh-and-scream-fest will be a cut above the rest.
Cooties centers on a group of elementary school teachers left to fend for themselves when a deadly virus communicated through chicken nuggets turns almost all the students into flesh-hungry zombies. As the infection can only take root if the host has not undergone puberty, the teachers aren’t at risk of catching it – but they do have to deal with being on every pupil’s menu.
The reception out of Sundance was strong, though our own Dominic Mill had mixed views on the horror-comedy. The directors have supposedly been doing extensive re-cutting since that premiere, so perhaps what’s coming to theaters this fall will be a stronger version »

Cooties played the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and now the zombie horror-comedy is coming to select theaters and On Demand on Sept. 18 courtesy of Lionsgate. You should get a pretty good idea of just what kind of film this is based on the fact it was written by Leigh Whannell (co-creator of Saw and Insidious) and Ian Brennan (co-creator of "Glee"), which makes it quite clear just how this is likely to play out. Directed by Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion, the cast includes Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson, Alison Pill, Jack McBrayer, Leigh Whannell, Nasim Pedrad, Ian Brennan and Jorge Garcia. Here's the official plot: When a cafeteria food virus turns elementary school children into killer zombies, a group of misfit teachers must band together to escape the playground carnage. The film stars Elijah Wood (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings), Rainn Wilson ("The Office"), and Alison Pill »

Read More: Watch: George Miller and The Toecutter Warn Us Not to Talk or Text in New 'Mad Max' PSA The latest installment of the Alamo Drafthouse's "Don't Talk" PSA series features that angry voice inside our head telling our fellow audience members at the movies to put their phones away already! The Drafthouse team chose the perfect personification of that rage, too: our favorite angry comedian Lewis Black ("Lewis Black's Root of All Evil"), who voices the character of Anger in the upcoming film "Inside Out." Disney and Pixar's newest feature follows the personified emotions inside the head of Riley and her parents as they move from the Midwest to the West Coast and adjust to a new life in San Francisco. Amy Poehler ("Parks and Recreation'), Bill Hader ("Saturday Night Live"), Mindy Kaling ("The Mindy Project") and Phyllis Smith ("The Office") star alongside Black as »

I've been eager to catch Cooties ever since it was first announced. An elementary school cafeteria virus turns the students into zombies, but folks who have been through puberty can't contract the condition so the teachers are left to defend themselves. It's a brilliant concept! Cooties debuted at Sundance in 2014 where it was quickly snatched up by Lionsgate, but apparently directors Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion have done a good deal of re-cutting since. If this trailer is any indication, it looks as though the duo is still on the right track because this promo for the film is absolutely brimming with energy and suggests it'll be well worth the wait. Check out the Cooties trailer for yourself below. The film stars Elijah Wood, Alison Pill, Rainn Wilson, Jorge Garcia, Leigh Whanell, Jack McBrayer and Nasim Pedrad, and is set to hit theaters on September 18th. Via Yahoo! Movies. Here's »

New movie Life on the Road sees former manager of Slough’s Wernham Hogg paper company return as a travelling salesman with dreams of pop stardom
The first image of Ricky Gervais as wannabe popstar David Brent – once of The Office, now a travelling salesman with a lust for fame – has hit the web ahead of the release of new mockumentary Life on the Road.
The big screen debut of the former manager of Slough’s Wernham Hogg paper company is due to film some time in 2015. It will focus on Brent’s life on tour with his band Foregone Conclusion 15 years after being made redundant from Wernham Hogg. The 50-year-old, now a urinal lozenge salesman, has cashed in his pension to pay for a band of expensive young session musicians because ticket receipts are not enough to cover their wages and a tour bus.

Pixar's new film Inside Out follows five anthropomorphized emotions as they vie for control of an 11-year-old girl's mind, and it seems apropos that the two emotions we get to know the best are Joy (voiced by Amy Poehler) and Sadness (played by The Office's Phyllis Smith). Certainly, the last two decades of Pixar movies have brought audiences and critics plenty of joy, and to judge from Inside Out's rapturously received Cannes Film Festival bow this morning — which led Variety's Peter Debruge to call Pixar's 15th film "one of those rare movies that transcends the medium" — there will be plenty of smiles this summer when Inside Out comes out Stateside.But sadness is an integral part of the Pixar formula, too. Think of Toy Story 3's tearful finale, or Toy Story 2's gut-punching Sarah MacLachlan number. Audiences famously wept during the first ten minutes of Up, »

Mindy Kaling has made her Cannes debut with the Pixar film Inside Out, a sweet look at the emotions at battle inside an 11-year-old girl's head. The movie also features costars Amy Poehler and Mindy's The Office castmate Phyllis Smith. The trio assembled at the film festival Monday morning for a photocall and a press conference along with Pixar head honcho John Lasseter and director Pete Docter. It turns out that being part of a big ensemble film like Inside Out is a rare experience for Mindy, who is more used to generating her own material. Mindy, of course, created, writes, and stars in her own series, The Mindy Project, which just moved from Fox to Hulu. At today's press conference, she got candid about the state of her career. "I'm not asked to do that many things," she said. "I think I'm very specific - the way that I look, »
Cannes — Stop and think about it for a just a minute. Imagine a movie almost completely centered on individual emotions living in a young girl's head. Not a short, but a feature length film. It sounds like some sort of nightmare screenwriting assignment, doesn’t it? How do you explain how the emotions work? Do they control her every action? Do they grow and mature alongside her? How do you make a coherent, entertaining and moving experience out of that concept? Pete Docter, who previously directed one of Pixar's best films, "Up," doesn't make things easy on himself taking on that challenge and it makes the success of "Inside Out" more admirable than it initially might seem. The most important character in "Inside Out" is actually our heroine, Riley (eventually voiced by Kaitlyn Dias). Her birth spurs the creation of the first emotion, Joy (Amy Poehler), but as she grows, »

That's right, Ricky Gervais' much-loved (and much-hated) The Office character David Brent is looking for some free love on the free love freeway - the love is free and the freeway's long - in his very own cinematic spin-off. It's currently titled Life On The Road and set for an August 2016 release in the UK.The press release reads: "Now working as a rep selling cleaning (and ladies personal hygiene) products up and down the country, Brent hasn’t given up his dream of becoming a rock star - or more specifically, singer/songwriter for fledgling rock band Foregone Conclusion. As he assembles a group of mercenary session musicians, a talented sidekick for street cred and an overpriced yet underwhelmed tour manager, he embarks upon a self-financed UK tour coming to a venue near every major city near you."As well as the picture seen above, Gervais also issued »
The film will be based on the character of David Brent from the original UK version of The Office which ran for two seasons and two Christmas specials. The show famously spawned the hit multiple-seasoned Us version starring Steve Carell.
Here’s the release.
Twelve years ago, David Brent (Ricky Gervais) was a regional manager for a mid-level paper merchants. In Summer 2016, get ready to see him on the big screen as he chases fame and fortune in Life On The Road.

News that the film was pressing ahead landed a little while back now, but an official announcement this morning confirms that the title of the feature will be Life On The Road. Gervais is to star in the film, and is writing and directing as well. It will, of course, pick up the adventures of the character who first came to the screen in The Office.
The first outline plot details? Glad you asked.

Actor Ed Helms is best known for comedic roles in TV’s “The Office” and “The Hangover” movies, but he got serious when he addressed Rolling Stone magazine’s recanted rape story in a speech at the University of Virginia. “It has been said that a rolling stone gathers no moss,” Helms said in remarks at Uva’s Valedictory Exercises Friday. “I would add that sometimes a rolling stone also gathers no verifiable facts or even the tiniest morsels of journalistic integrity. “Rolling Stone tried to define you this year,” Helms said. “As a result, not only was this community thrown deep into turmoil, »
