Exclusive: Watch The First 3 Minutes Of New Superhero Comedy 'SuperBob' Starring Brett Goldstein & Catherine Tate

  • The Playlist
From “Condorman” to “Hancock,” from “Blankman” to “My Super Ex-Girlfriend,” the history of the superhero comedy is a less than illustrious one. Sure, the Marvel movies are pretty funny, but it’s surprising given the dominance of the comic book hero at the box office right now, that we haven’t seen more successful comic riffs on the underwear-over-tights genre. But one might have finally arrived. “SuperBob,” from director Jon Drever, hits cinemas in the U.K. in a few weeks, and it’s being billed by some as a sort of superheroic “Shaun Of The Dead.” Co-written by and starring “Derek” breakout Brett Goldstein, with “Doctor Who” and “The Office” star Catherine Tate, “Game Of Thrones” actress Natalia Tena, Laura Haddock from “Guardians Of The Galaxy,” and David Harewood from “Homeland,” among various familiar faces in support, the film focuses on the titular superhero, the only one in the world,

Ten Best: Break-up Revenge Films

Seduced by dreams of making it big, song-writer Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her singer boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) move to New York to pursue their passion for music. However, when Dave rejects her for the fame and fortune of a big solo contract, Gretta finds herself alone and far from home. Seeking comfort in the arms of dear friend Steve (James Corden), Gretta and Steve end up drinking spirits in his apartment before deciding to drunk-dial Dave. With Steve on keyboard and Gretta singing down the phone and playing guitar, her voicemail makes Dave realise that he made a huge mistake in letting her go.

To celebrate Begin Again being released on DVD and Blu-ray from 10th November, we’ve decided to explore other break-up revenge scenes found in movies.

How ‘Draft Day’ Director Ivan Reitman Got His Groove Back

Meatballs, Stripes, Ghostbusters and Dave are four of Ivan Reitman‘s films that have stood the test of time. When Reitman was on top of his game, the now 67-year-old filmmaker hit grand slams. I’m not using these sports metaphors because his latest film, Draft Day, includes the NFL Draft, but because, like athletes, some directors have hot streaks and cold streaks. For an array of reasons, slumps happen. Reitman’s lasted 18 years. After Dave he directed Junior, Father’s Day, Evolution, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, and Six Days, Seven Nights. A few of those films had glimmers of hope that Reitman hadn’t lost his touch, but during those years, only as a producer was he making quality movies. People generally focus on the films that proceeded Dave, not Old School, Up in the Air, I Love You, Man and Private Parts, and one of those acclaimed films he came close to directing. “It

8 Directors Who Should Make Ghostbusters 3

News hit last week that veteran filmmaker Ivan Reitman is stepping down as director of Ghostbusters 3 following the loss of Harold Ramis. Sony are still going ahead with the movie with Reitman as a producer and are hoping to shoot early 2015 in New York. Is that a good or a bad thing? With two of the key creators of the first two films gone, does that mean that the product we’ll eventually be faced with will actually resemble a Ghostbusters movie at all?

That said, it has to be asked: How crucial is the original director to making a ‘true’ Ghostbusters movie in the first place? Yes, Ivan Reitman helped create a comedy classic in the first film, but he was also responsible for the much less well-received Ghostbusters II and hasn’t really had a properly successful film since the ’90s, his last two features as director

Ivan Reitman Will Not Direct Ghostbusters 3

In what can only be viewed as good news, it has been confirmed that Ivan Reitman no longer intends to direct the long-talked-about-despite-the-complete-and-utter-lack-of-actual-forward-progress Ghostbusters 3. No matter whether you are pro or anti further ghost busting, this is a good thing. Why?Well, if you're one of those who wants a third Ghostbusters film and actually want it to be good, well, consider that Reitman is now more than twenty years removed from the last actually good film that he has directed, that being 1993's Dave. In the intervening years he has helmed Junior, Father's Day, Six Days Seven Nights, Evolution, Cooking Lessons, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, No Strings Attached and the yet to be released Draft Day, whose trailers look typically awful. Let's be honest: Is...

Your Top Three: Superhero Movies

  • Movies.com
Your Top Three is a series where we choose a topic and you give us your top three picks. We previously asked you to rank the best comic book movies and the best superhero performances. But we've never asked for just your favorite superhero movies. So, with Thor: The Dark World out this weekend it's as good a time as ever to remedy this.

In Memory of 'Thor' and 'Simpsons' Writer Don Payne

  • Movies.com
Today we were met with the sad news that writer Don Payne (Thor, The Simpsons) had passed away. Don was a friend to many, including our own Scott Weinberg, who wrote up the following personal essay about his experiences with Don, and what he meant to the people whose lives he touched. The first time Don Payne e-mailed me was to say thanks for being "fair" to his screenwriting debut, the amusing but ultimately unsuccessful My Super Ex-Girlfriend. That Don was already established as a writer on no less a series than The Simpsons made the relative failure of Super Ex a little easier to swallow -- but I know he cared about nasty reviews. Don used to send me e-mails filled with links to Super Ex reviews. Some he listed as "negative but insightful" and others he...
