Watch the Trailer For True Memoirs Of An International Assassin

30 September 2016 12:17 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

With Adam Sandler enjoying great success with his string of Netflix exclusive movies (god only knows how though), it was only a matter of time till so good buddy Kevin James got in on the action, and now we have the first trailer for True Memoirs of an International Assassin, an action comedy with a plot so old school i could have swore I saw this in the 80’s. James plays a mild manner author who is mistaken for a master assassin when his fictional novel about a globe trotting killer-for-hire is published as a true story. When the book is huge success, he is kidnapped and forced into a real life assassination plot. I really try to like Kevin James, and sometime he makes it incredibly easy with the likes of King of Queens and Here Comes the Boom. But other times, he stars in Paul Blart: Mall Cop. »

Coming Distractions: Kevin James blows up real good in this trailer for True Memoirs Of An International Assassin

29 September 2016 2:43 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Remember Here Comes The Boom, the movie that inexplicably starred Kevin James as an aspiring Mma fighter? As poorly as that went, his career as a hitman in True Memoirs Of An International Assassin seems like it’s going to go even worse—although, to True Memoirs’ credit, Kevin James getting involved in something that is significantly beyond is abilities is sort of the point this time. As seen in this trailer, the movie stars James as a writer whose spy thriller gets released as non-fiction to help boost sales, leading people to believe that he’s actually a retired assassin. As anyone who has seen Tropic Thunder (or any other movie ever) can probably guess, that eventually leads to him getting kidnapped and swept up in an actual international assassin plot, complete with foreign bad guys, a mysterious spy woman, and Rob Riggle as an amped-up CIA bro.

Michael Sugar Proves You Don’t Have to Live in L.A. to Succeed in Entertainment

27 September 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When Allan Loeb sat down with his then-prospective manager, Michael Sugar, he received some tough advice. It wasn’t that Loeb’s career, as the screenwriter behind commercial hits like “Just Go With It” and “Here Comes the Boom,” had stalled. But Sugar, sensing a lack of passion, told Loeb he should refocus his sights on telling stories that were important to him.

“I was burning out,” Loeb remembers. “I had gotten to the point where I had taken a lot of jobs, some better than others.”

If Sugar was to sign Loeb as his client, his priority would be making sure the screenwriter got out of a creative rut. The result of what Loeb calls a “course correction” was “Collateral Beauty,” a Will Smith drama about an emotionally shattered advertising executive, which hits theaters this Christmas and is expected to be an awards contender.

Kevin Can Wait Season 1 Review

20 September 2016 11:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One episode was provided prior to broadcast.

Kevin James is a simple entertainer. His blue collar-friendly brand is designed to appeal to undemanding middle-aged schlubs, or at the very least, easy-to-please hard-working people who just want to kick their feet back, gulp down a couple beers and enjoy themselves for a few hours. The kind of people who don’t expect more than the familiar pleasures they’ve been given before. And there’s nothing particularly wrong with that either. James’ style might be boring and repetitive to some of us (well, maybe most of us), but he’s a smart businessman. He knows what his fans expect from him, and he tries to meet their modest demands. That logic drives Kevin Can Wait, James’ return to CBS and broadcast television.

It’s been nine years since James stepped away from King of Queens, pursing a career on the big »
