Jon Hamm Spies on Zach Galifianakis in First Trailer For ‘Keeping Up With The Joneses’

22 June 2016 7:18 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Superbad and Adventureland director Greg Mottola is back at it with Keeping Up With The Joneses, which pits Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher against new neighbors Gal Gadot and Jon Hamm. Ahead of a release this fall, 20th Century Fox have now released the first trailer.

The preview promises an action-comedy blend akin to Pineapple Express or Knight and Day by way of Neighbors, with slapstick comedy and meek one-liners from Galifianakis accompanying the flying bullets and explosions. Hopefully a comedy bright spot during the fall awards season, see the trailer below.

An ordinary suburban couple (Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher) finds it’s not easy keeping up with the Joneses (Jon Hamm, Gal Gadot) – their impossibly gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated new neighbors – especially when they discover that Mr. and Mrs. “Jones” are covert operatives.

Keeping Up With The Joneses hits U.S. theaters October 21st.

New Behind-The-Scenes Alien: Covenant Image Features Danny McBride In The Interior Of The Ship

22 June 2016 6:06 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Last time we got a glimpse of Michael Fassbender's David, and this latest behind-the-scenes snap from the set of Alien: Covenant provides a first look at Danny McBride (Tropic Thunder, This Is The End, Pineapple Express) alongside director Ridley Scott. No details on his character just yet - but it's obviously safe to assume he'll be a member of the Covenant's crew. The image also gives us a good look at the interior of the new spacecraft. “Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the ‘synthetic’ David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.” Alien: Covenant stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Demien Bichir and Danny McBride, and is set to hit theaters on August 4, 2017. »

‘Morris from America’ Trailer & Poster: Craig Robinson Doles Out Fatherly Advice in Chad Hartigan’s Sundance Winner

14 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Chad Hartigan’s “Morris From America” earned high praise at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, winning the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award. The film follows Morris Gentry (Markees Christmas), a 13-year-old who just relocated with his father (Craig Robinson) to Heidelberg, Germany. Morris is a fish out of water in his new home as he struggles to fit in with other kids, but when his German tutor (Carla Juri) insists he spend more time with his peers, he falls for Katrin (Lina Keller), a fellow classmate. He tries to impress her with his nascent rap skills while Morris’ dad attempts to acclimate himself and his son to their new life, but both of them will slowly learn that the best strategy is just to be themselves. Ahead of its theatrical release later this summer, A24 and DirecTV have released the film’s trailer, which features the new song by DJ Shadow and Run the Jewels “Nobody Speak.”

His second film “This Is Martin Bonner,” about a man in his 50s who relocated to Reno, Nevada for a new job and forms an unlikely friendship, also premiered at Sundance in 2013 and won the Audience Award for Best of Next. Star Craig Robinson is best known for playing Darryl Philbin on “The Office,” along with his performances in “Pineapple Express,” “Hot Tub Time Machine,” and “This Is The End.” He will also be featured in the new animated film “Sausage Party” and James Franco’s latest “Zeroville.” Robinson won a Special Jury Award for Acting for his performance in “Morris From America.”

Morris from America” will be available exclusively on DirecTV starting July 7 and open theatrically in select cities on August 19. Check out a poster for the film below.

James Franco’s Movie Column: ‘Swiss Army Man’ is a Moving Bromance (With a Farting Corpse)

14 June 2016 8:59 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

James + Semaj is a column where James Franco talks to his reverse self, Semaj, about new films. Rather than a conventional review, it is place where James and Semaj can muse about ideas that the films provoke. James loves going to the movies and talking about them. But a one-sided take on a movie, in print, might be misconstrued as a review. As someone in the industry it could be detrimental to James’s career if he were to review his peers, because unlike the book industry—where writers review other writer’s books—the film industry is highly collaborative, and a bad review of a peer could create problems. So, assume that James (and Semaj) love all these films. What they’re interested in talking about is all the ways the films inspire them, and make them think. James is me, and Semaj is the other side of me.

This week’s column is about “Swiss Army Man,” which opens theatrically on Friday.

James: So this is “a farting corpse bromance.”

Semaj: Don’t spoil it.

James: Ok, it’s “an endearing dark comedy about loneliness and the human need to connect to another.”

Semaj: It kind of reminds me of “Child of God,” that movie you adapted from Cormac McCarthy’s third novel about a necrophiliac.

James: “Child of God” is a little darker than this movie.

Semaj: Yeah, but only because the character in “Child of God” sleeps with his corpses and then starts to murder more people to have more companions.

James: That character, Lester Ballard, was loosely based on the real murderer, Ed Gein, notorious bone and skin collector and exhumer of bodies. He made lampshades out of skin, and bedposts out of skulls.

Semaj: Ed Gein also inspired Robert Bloch’s “Psycho” (the human taxidermy, Norman dressing up like his dead mother) and Nicholas Winding Refn’s favorite movie of all time, “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”

James: Why are you bringing up Nicolas Winding Refen?

Semaj: He’s always talking about “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” I think he took his wife to see it on their first date ever.

James: Anyway, “Swiss Army Man” does deal with a corpse like all those films, but it does it in a different way. Somehow it’s not as bleak, and grisly. It’s pretty skillful how they pull it off.

Semaj: “Weekend at Bernie’s” already pulled off a corpse comedy.

James: This isn’t like “Weekend at Bernie’s” either. That’s a straight-up comedy, but like the Two Corey’s classic, “License to Drive,” the comedy comes from the characters trying to disguise the fact that they are carting around a corpse.

Semaj: In “License to Drive,” it’s a drunken Heather Graham.

James: Yeah, but in those movies they have no meaningful interactions with the incapacitated (or dead) characters. The bodies are usually temporarily animated to deliver a moment of comedy.

Semaj: In “Swiss Army Man,” it’s all about the relationship between Paul Dano and the corpse.

James: Exactly. Paul Dano’s character is so lonely that on the brink of suicide he meets the Daniel Radcliff corpse and immediately begins to develop a friendship with him.

Semaj: In a way, it’s as if Paul Dano’s character is animating the corpse with his own thoughts and feelings.

James: Exactly! He provides the corpse with his personality.

Semaj: Sort of like you do with these columns — you animate both sides of a conversation.

James: Yeah, I guess so. Maybe I’m lonely, too.

Semaj: I’m here for you.

James: Thanks, man.

Semaj: So, does that mean that Paul Dano’s character is having a bromance with himself?

James: Sort of, but it’s more complex than that. One of the things that is great about necrophilia stories, despite their disguising reality, is they allow an intense examination of what it means to be intimate with an other. Dano’s character wants what everyone wants: to connect to another, to love and be loved. But he has been damaged by a loveless father, and is so insecure that he is incapable of speaking to the woman he’s attracted to on his bus route.

Semaj: So he isolates himself in the wilderness, and becomes lonelier.

James: He has given up on conventional social interactions, he can’t do it, the world has rejected him. He feels ugly and unlovable.

Semaj: But when he finds the corpse he can infuse it with all his ideas of a perfect mate. He is out in the woods with no one to contradict him, so his imagination can run wild, and he can believe, without any objections from the greater world, that his new corpse friend can talk, and use his farts to propel them over the water like a jet ski, or light fires, or shoot them up into the sky to evade dangerous animals.

James: Exactly. So you think that all that fantastic stuff is in Paul Dano’s imagination?

Semaj: I think so, but it doesn’t really matter after a while because the movie takes us on his ride, we are experiencing everything through his eyes, so whether that stuff really happens or not doesn’t matter as much as having those experiences affect him, and seeing that they are emotionally real for him. Because of that, the audience also feels.

James: That’s one thing the movie does really well: it draws you into his quirky world so you can get on board with what would otherwise, in actuality, be a fucked up situation.

Semaj: I think the farts have a lot to do with making the whole thing more palatable.

James: You’re exactly right. It seems like a silly thing, and amongst people I’ve talked to, the movie is already known as the “farting corpse movie,” but the idea that the corpse’s gas aids Dano’s imagination when animating the corpse is crucial. From the first meeting on, the corpse farts, and it immediately takes the tone of the film out of the macabre and into the more enjoyable realms of a quirky bromance, where two oddball guys can enjoy fart jokes, talk about women, masturbation, and in the end forge an intimate bond.

James: The movie was directed by two guys with the first name Daniel, so they’re credited as “Daniels.”

Semaj: Maybe making the movie was a kind of bromance for them, too.

James: There is nothing more intimate than creating something with someone. That’s why I collaborate with all my friends again and again.

Semaj: Basically the corpse provides Dano with everything he was denied by everyone else in his life.

James: Exactly, just like all bromances do. In “Pineapple Express,” Dale realizes that his weird drug dealer Saul is actually his best friend; in “Superbad,” the boys learn that they love each other more than anyone; “This is the End” is partly an examination of the strain that trauma puts on friendships, and ultimately the triumph of true friendship, even when facing the end of the world.

Semaj: It’s weird that they didn’t let you go to heaven at the end of that film.

James: You’re telling me! I mean Wtf? I sacrificed myself for Seth, and I still don’t get to go to heaven?

Semaj: Danny McBride dragged you down to Hell.

James: Well, Hell would be heaven with a friend like Danny, and Heaven would be Hell without Seth.

Semaj: Awwww.

Sausage Party TV Trailer Incites a Horrifying Food Fight

13 June 2016 10:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sausage Party is about one sausage leading a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens when they become chosen to leave the grocery store. An extended TV spot has arrived, which doesn't offer too much in the way of new footage. But it certainly is terrifying. If you've ever wanted to see food wage a war against humans, you'll definitely get your chance this summer!

Sausage Party arrives this August as the first&#160R-rated CG animated movie in history. And while kids will be clamoring to see it, it's quite obvious, from this somewhat tame sneak peek, that this is definitely not a family movie. Unless you plan on leaving your kids starving, crying and scarred for life as part of your summer vacation activities.

This Pixar spoof features an epic ensemble of voice actors including Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton and Salma Hayek. Producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are also responsible for creating the film, their first attempt at doing a full-length animated feature film. The duo previously penned the script for teen classic Superbad and dope adventure Pineapple Express. They made their directorial debut with 2014's This is the End, and directed the pilot for AMC's summer series Preacher, which aired its third episode last night.

Directing this animated horror comedy are Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon, who take their adventure gleefully to the edge of Nc-17. Though, the film is confirmed to have an R-rating from the MPAA. Seth Rogen headlines this adventure as a hotdog just looking to get laid inside a delicious bun. But he soon discovers his destiny lies upon a different path. Here's what co-director Evan Goldberg had to tell us about the movie as production was starting back in 2014.

"Sausage Party is an existential mock-Pixar movie, and we are very, very proud of it. It's our opus. It's like Mr. Holland's Opus! It's our take on a Pixar movie. It is very, very R rated. I wish there were fifty Pixar movies every year. But listen, someone should take those motherf*ckers down a notch. Those high and mighty bastards. We're mocking all animated movies, with a special eye on Pixar. It is about a sausage in a supermarket. He goes on an epic journey to get back to his isle before the 4th of July, and reunite with his pack of sausage friends."

Sausage Party is hitting theaters on August 12. It will be going up against the biblical remake Ben-Hur as well as Disney's family adventure reboot Pete's Dragon. Universal will also launch the supernatural military thriller Spectral, which is the studio's answer to Ghostbusters. And Paramount is releasing the biopic Florence Foster Jenkins starring Meryl Streep. It's quite obvious Sausage Party is unique and not like anything else arriving this summer. That alone could make it an unexpected hit. While we await it's gore soaked arrival, take a look at the latest war torn footage in the extended TV Trailer courtesy of Youtube. »

Alien: Covenant - Michael Fassbender features in new official image

A new image from the production of Alien: Covenant shows Michael Fassbender and a new style of helmet...

Latest Alien: Covenant news

Nb: The following contains a fairly mild Alien: Covenant plot spoiler. 

Like acidic alien drool, the drip feed of imagery and teases from the production of Alien: Covenant continues. A couple of weeks ago, we got a first look at Katherine Waterston's character, Daniels, in character on the set of Ridley Scott's Alien prequel (see page 3 of this article for our analysis of that picture).

And this time the official Alien Anthology Twitter account has tweeted a picture of Ridley Scott himself, calling the shots on set with Michael Fassbender and a handsome-looking space helmet.

Take a look:

There are a couple of things to note here. First, that the helmet in the mid-ground is far more like the ones we saw in »

Sausage Party Trailer Puts an R-Rated Spin on Pixar Movies

19 May 2016 11:23 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Sausage Party is the first&#160R-rated CG animated movie in history, and it looks horrifying. Especially if you love food.

Earlier this year, we were treated to the gloriously offensive red band trailer for Sausage Party. Today, we get the green band 'all-audience' trailer from Sony, which cuts back on the raunch but not the gore. This is still one gruesome blood bath of food. And it's incredibly disturbing.

Beauty vs Beast: All Their Jazz

It's Monday and this is Jason from Mnpp writing at you, so it must be time for another round of "Beauty vs Beast" -- this week's duo are each individually and together beautiful and beastly all at once, and I don't know which their prouder of, honestly.

Indeed we speak of that pair of murderin' funny honeys Velma Kelly (Catherine Zeta Jones) & Roxie Hart (Renée Zellweger) in Rob Marshall's 2002 Oscar winner Chicago. Today is Renée's 47th birthday and this we do in celebration of her. Now make like Lipschitz and choose.

King Cobra review: James Franco at his lurid best in gay porn shocker

22 April 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actor gives his most unhinged performance since Spring Breakers in Justin Kelly’s compelling film detailing the rise of porn star Brent Corrigan

As an actor, James Franco has two modes: committed and can’t-be-bothered. His bold work in Spring Breakers, 127 Hours and Pineapple Express falls into the first category; Oz the Great and Powerful and Werner Herzog’s misbegotten Queen of the Desert meanwhile feature Franco at his most lifeless. Luckily for film-maker Justin Kelly, Franco is at his brazen best in the dark gay porn saga King Cobra.

The film reunites the star with the director of I Am Michael for another gay-themed narrative based on real events. That, however, is where the similarities end.

The masterminds of D4VE reunite with Hot Damn, and they’re taking you straight to Hell. Hard living catches up to Teddy, and eternal damnation awaits—but it’s nothing like the good book tells you. Hell is a therapy session you can never leave…

Review:

I think Ryan Ferrier was high when he came up with the concept for Hot Damn. Like he was sitting around stoned with some friends and was like “Dude, what if hell was like a place where people just need to live pretty shitty lives and they like need to come to terms with all the bad shit they’ve done in their life before they can really begin repenting and stuff”. That’s pretty much what the story is like in Hot Damn, »

Jason from Mnpp here, reporting for "Beauty vs Beast" duty from the middle of the Tribeca Film Festival -- I mean that literally; I am in between screenings right this very minute. (Sidenote: and since I'm not on my usual computer and don't have access to Photoshop, this week's edition is more lo-fi than usual, but we'll make due.) Anyway you know who else is here with me at the festival? James Franco. James Franco is everywhere, in every movie.

Okay okay maybe he's just in two movies - The Fixer and King Cobra - but on top of those I just finished watching 11.22.63 the other day plus it's his birthday on Tuesday, so he certainly feels omnipresent in my life at the moment. So for this week's competition let's look back at one of his finest moments -- David Gordon Green's 4-20-Perfect-10 Pineapple Express, opposite the Bacall to his Don't-Bogart-That-j Mr. »

TV Review – Love Season One

11 April 2016 5:20 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Love – Season One

Starring Paul Rust, Gillian Jacobs, Claudia O’Doherty, Tracie Thomas, Andy Dick and Jordan Rock.

Synopsis:

A program that follows a couple who must navigate the exhilarations and humiliations of intimacy, commitment and other things they were hoping to avoid.

I got turned off from Love before I even bothered to watch the trailer. I knew all I needed to know about it, in my opinion, and that was the fact that it was produced by Judd Apatow. Apatow, who has been involved in some outstanding works of comedy like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Anchorman, has also produced some of my least favourite films ever; namely, Seth Rogan movies. I don’t really have a problem with Seth Rogen, per se, or in fact with Apatow (except perhaps his exhaustingly mechanical use of the hot girl stereotype, which incidentally surfaces in Love – but more on that later), I just really, »

'Sausage Party' Trailer: Seth Rogen's R-Rated Animated Pixar Spoof

15 March 2016 8:04 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hilarious! Horrifying! Unbelievable! It's finally here. Watch if you dare, this sneak peek is truly terrifying for vegans and meat lovers, both. Sausage Party is the ever first R-rated CG animated movie. It is about one sausage leading a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence. And what really happens when they become chosen to leave the grocery store.

This Pixar spoof is from writers/producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and while it might look like it's headed for an Nc-17 rating, the creators assured advanced audiences last night at SXSW that it has already been awarded an R rating by the MPAA. It is directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon. And it is definitely not for children, so keep them far, far away.

Seth Rogen headlines this adventure as a hotdog just looking to get laid inside a delicious bun. »
