“His contributions to the field of animation, among them the groundbreaking ‘Beavis and Butt-Head,’ and the long-running hit ‘King of the Hill’ have advanced the form of animation storytelling and continue to be a benchmark for creators everywhere,” Goodman said. “We applaud the risk he took to guarantee making ‘King of the Hill’ a WGA-covered show, which to this day helps the Guild chip away at the precedents that keep writers who work in animation from receiving the guarantees and benefits of our union.”
Judge, a WGA member since 1998, was born in 1962 in Ecuador and raised in Albuquerque, N.M. MTV picked up Judge’s 1992 animated short, “Frog Baseball »

It’s a strange morning here in Movieland. With the news that Donald Trump will become the 45th President of the United States we’re learning that shows like Black Mirror and Mike Judge’s Idiocracy were more likely portents of a future rather than cautionary tales. While the political dust has yet to settle, and to see […]

Ever since the film's release, there's always that person you know who says that Mike Judge's Idiocracy is "coming true!" It's hard to argue with the evidence, but in case you wanted to re-experience the laughs/horror of what the film has to offer, it's returning to select theaters! Some of the cast and crew of Idiocracy will be show up in-person at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica at... Read More »

It might be finally getting a proper release - 10 years later. 20th Century Fox is letting theaters screen the cult comedy Idiocracy, from writer/director Mike Judge, in theaters later this year just before the election. The Alamo Drafthouse chain has at least 25 of their cinemas listing a screening on October 4th, and more theaters across the Us are being listed as well. Idiocracy is the sci-fi comedy from Mike Judge about an average guy, played by Luke Wilson, who is frozen and wakes up in the future - only to discover it's an idiotic place with Terry Crews as President Camacho running the country, and Brawndo being distributed instead of water. It's a totally wacky comedy, but it's also becoming increasingly prescient - especially with a buffoon as idiotic as Camacho in the running for President. Glad to see Fox letting this film back in theaters. Here's a look »

This election season has been something else. There has been so much nonsense and stupidity thrown around in this intense political climate that many have pointed to the fact that Mike Judge‘s cult favorite comedy Idiocracy predicted that this kind of thing would eventually happen. In fact, there were supposed to be some Idiocracy-themed political […]

When Idiocracy was released in 2006, it didn’t make much of an impact upon the world. In fact, most people didn’t even know it existed. 20th Century Fox had a contractual obligation to release Mike Judge’s follow-up to Office Space, but they pretty much just tucked it away. After being sat on for more than a year, it initially opened in just seven cities, and with practically zero publicity—not even so much as a trailer. Now, just one decade later, Idiocracy is practically a household term, which is as much a testament to the film’s enduring satirical genius as it is to the country’s terrifying free-fall which includes, among other things, a not-totally-impossible Trump presidency.
And since it’s hard to shiver in fear while you’re laughing, the Alamo Drafthouse And Art House Convergence Theaters have decided to screen the film for one ...

Mike Judge's satirical cult classic Idiocracy is returning to select theaters on October 4th to mark the film's 10th anniversary. Judge, the film's director/co-writer, will appear in-person alongside star Maya Rudolph and other cast and crew members at Santa Monica's Aero Theatre for a screening and post-movie talk.
Concurrent screenings will take place at Alamo Drafthouse and Art House Convergence theaters across the U.S., with the roundtable discussion live-streamed to those audiences. Thirty-two theaters have been announced, and the complete list will updated at the Drafthouse website. »
Mike Judge's Idiocracy is 10 years old this year, and its vision of a dumbed-down America 500 years in the future now feels...terrifyingly accurate. Ok, so we don't yet live in "domistiles," and our crops aren't irrigated with a sports energy drink, but Donald Trump, host of NBC's The Apprentice, is the Camacho-esque Republican nominee for president in the most bizarre election season in history. Who could have predicted this back in 2005? Mike Judge, I bet. Now, in a tribute to the film's visionary powers, the Alamo Drafthouse -- in conjunction with "the network of Art House Convergence Theaters and local League of Women Voters chapters" -- is re-releasing the film in a number of theaters on the eve of what has suddenly become a nail-biter of a presidential election. Additionally, writer-director Mike Judge and star Maya Rudolph will participate in a post-screening Q&A at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica on October 4th, »

For those seeking a cinematic parallel to the rise of Donald Trump as an actual presidential candidate, and what the world might look like with him in the Oval Office (the horror), many have been pointing toward Mike Judge‘s “Idiocracy.” Like “Office Space” before it, the film wasn’t much of a hit when it was first released, but has since grown in cult status, and particularly over the past year has gained cultural currency for being, if not quite prophetic, then at least a little ahead of the curve at where politics were headed in the future.

Mike Judge’s 2006 satirical comedy “Idiocracy” follows a Us Army librarian selected for government-sponsored suspended animation and wakes up five hundred years later to find out that he’s the smartest person alive after society has become dangerously stupid. Though the film didn’t have a large theatrical release and was subsequently a box office bomb, the film received generally positive reviews and has since become a cult item. Now, ten years later, “Idiocracy” returns to theaters for one night only, courtesy of the Alamo Drafthouse, along with the network of Art House Convergence Theaters and local League of Women Voters chapters, on October 4th.

This fall semester I started taking an Italian language class two evenings a week with my daughter, and Thursday night I was looking to decompress after our first big quiz. (Scores haven’t been revealed yet, but I think we did just fine.) So I started rummaging through my shelves and came across the Warner Archives DVD of Francesco Maselli’s A Fine Pair (1968), an ostensibly breezy romantic caper comedy which reteams Rock Hudson and Claudia Cardinale, a pairing their public was presumably clamoring for after their previous outing together in Blindfold (1965), a Universal programmer written and directed by Phillip Dunne, the screenwriter of, among many other notable movies, How Green Was My Valley. I’ve had a mad crush on Claudia ever since I first saw her in Circus World (1964) with John Wayne when I was but a youngster, and I always welcome the chance to visit movies of »

Variety is reporting that Dax Shepard (Hit and Run) is in talks with Warner Bros. to co-direct their upcoming Scooby-Doo animated feature S.C.O.O.B. alongside Tony Cervone (Space Jam). He will also pen the screenplay alongside Matt Lieberman (Dr. Doolittle: Tail to the Chief).
Best known for acting work in the likes of Without a Paddle, Idiocracy and Parenthood, Shepard has recently directed the action-comedy CHiPS for Warner Bros., which was overseen by executive Jesse Ehrman, who has reportedly brought him on board for Mystery Inc’s return to the big screen.
Although plot details on the Scooby-Doo movie are being kept under wraps, it was revealed earlier this year that the film will be titled S.C.O.O.B., and is said to be “the first step in “unlocking the whole Hanna-Barbera universe.”
S.C.O.O.B. is set for release on September 21st »

Parenthood star Dax Shepard might be signing on to the creative team for Warner Bros.’ planned Scooby-Doo movie, according to Variety. Shepard—who’s directing the upcoming CHiPs film, and who previously starred in stuff like Punk’d, Idiocracy, and a bunch of adorable pictures with his wife, Kristen Bell—would be joining Space Jam director Tony Cervone on the 2018 film.
Warner Bros. announced the project—which may or may not be the starting point for some sort of “Hanna-Barbera Cinematic Universe,” depending on how open to crazy-sounding rumors you are—shortly after The Lego Movie reminded its executives of the untapped potential in its animated brands. The still-uncast film would be Shepard’s third directing gig, after CHiPs, and 2012’s low-key crime comedy Hit & Run.

Earlier this summer, we reported that Idiocracy collaborators Etan Cohen and Mike Judge were teaming up to make a series of apt “President Camacho”-themed anti-Trump ads. All they needed was the go ahead from 20th Century Fox, which owns the rights to the disturbingly prescient comedy from 2006. As it turns out, they didn’t get it—Fox declined, and the ads are effectively dead, but that shouldn’t really surprise anyone given that Fox boss Rupert Murdoch is pretty open about his support of Donald Trump. According to The Daily Beast, Terry Crews was on board for the ads, but even Terry Crews is no match for Murdoch’s absolute power.
“It kind of fell apart,” Judge told The Daily Beast. “It was announced that they [the ads] were anti-Trump, and I would’ve preferred to make them and then have the people decide. Terry Crews had wanted ...

For a few years now, writer-director Mike Judge and Terry Crews have talked about doing more with Idiocracy‘s President Camacho. Of course fans of the 2006 cult comedy are more than happy to see Crews return to the role, and we’ve seen him do so in a few Funny or Die videos. Crews and Judge were at one point discussing future […]

Ferrell will star as Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective, while Reilly will play his trusted sidekick. Etan Cohen will direct and wrote the script for Holmes and Watson, which puts a comedic spin on a story inspired by a classic Sherlock Holmes tale. Cohen has penned several beloved comedies, including Tropic Thunder and Idiocracy, and he made »

There are two Sherlock Holmes shows on TV at the moment, and one dormant movie franchise that might be starting back up. So why not another? Clearly, the market hasn’t saturated yet, and maybe there is humour to be found in the overabundance of deerstalker caps? This must be the thinking at Sony since the studio has just given the greenlight to Will Ferrell and John C Reilly in Holmes & Watson.
Deadline reports the long-stalled project was put into turnaround by Sony Pictures Tom Rothman when he first came aboard Columbia Pictures. Originally, a Sherlock Holmes comedy with this title had been devised as a star vehicle for Sacha Baron Cohen, but that project has since stalled for likely financial reasons. But Ferrell and Reilly have long had a »
After introducing audiences to the “shake and bake” in “Talladega Nights” and becoming best friends in “Step Brothers,” Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are reuniting once more to portray comedy versions of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in Sony’s “Holmes and Watson.”
Per Deadline, the duo has been wanting to find another opportunity to work together, and now they will in the upcoming Etan Cohen-directed comedy. Ferrell will portray Holmes and Reilly will play his right-hand man Watson. The story is inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes tale about the popular private detective.
The project will be produced by Mosaic and Gary Sanchez. Jonathan Kadin will oversee for Columbia, with Chris Henchy and Jessica Elbaum overseeing for Gary Sanchez. Production is set to begin after Thanksgiving.
The film originally starred Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen, »

Last summer, the New York Times reported that Steven Spielberg and Barack Obama were discussing ways to “develop a narrative” after the president left office. While Obama’s late-game approval ratings could create a great crowd-pleaser, our current election season is more like something directed by Lars Von Trier — deeply disturbing, but so sensationally realized it’s impossible to look away.
All political candidates define campaigns by the stories they choose to tell about themselves, and so we expect homilies that limn their humility, dedication, and leadership. This season, however, has devolved into an unnerving thrill ride rich with powerful images and unexpected twists, not to mention an absurd showdown between two characters who are more distinctive than any movie star working today.
The unlikely rise of Donald Trump has left all sides agape. Menacing supervillain to some, bold truth-teller to others, this “Cheeto Jesus” defines himself with assaultive bluster »
