Jordan Peele Discusses the “Stepford Zone” of Get Out in New Video

38 minutes ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Ahead of the theatrical release of Get Out later this week, writer/director Jordan Peele discusses the film's Stepford Wives-esque environment and what he set out to achieve with the movie in a new behind-the-scenes featurette.

"In Universal PicturesGet Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele, when a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods).

At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, »

The Weekend Warrior 2/24/17: Get Out, Collide, Rock Dog

4 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.  

This Past Weekend:

Presidents' Day weekend was an interesting one at the box office, and as with most holiday weekends, it was particularly difficult to figure out how things might fare, other than The Lego Batman Movie, which remained at #1 with almost $45 million over the four-day weekend. Fifty Shades Darker followed with $21.3 million, about a 50% drop.  Last week, I thought that the Ice Cub comedy Fist Fight would beat The Great Wall, although it seemed like it could be a close race. Nope. Matt Damon’s action epic came in third place with $21.6 million, which is a couple million more than my original prediction, but The Fist Fight fell short of my prediction by almost $10 million, grossing $14.5 million in its first four days. »

'Get Out' Review: Scares Meet Racially Charged Satire in Instant Horror Classic

10 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A jolt-a-minute horroshow laced with racial tension and stinging satirical wit. How is one movie all that? See Get Out, from debuting director Jordan Peele (one half of the comic team of Key and Peele), and get woke. This socially aware scary movie takes you by surprise, setting the scene for a slasher flick that's a ticking timebomb. And then, ka-boom.

"Have you told your parents I'm black?" Those are practically the first words that aspiring photographer Chris Washington (Sicario's Daniel Kaluuya) speaks to his girlfriend Rose (Allison Williams »

Who Is Milo Yiannopoulos and Why Did Simon & Schuster Cancel His Book Deal?

21 February 2017 11:36 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Far-right editor Milo Yiannopoulos has frequently come under fire for his controversial, far-right views, but this time his resurfaced comments appearing to condone pedophilia have cost him a book deal, a speaking engagement and now, even his job at Breibart News.

Yiannopoulos resigned from Breitbart on Tuesday amid widespread backlash over his pedophilia comments. “Breitbart News has stood by me when others caved,” he said in a statement, adding, “I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues’ important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart, effective immediately.”

Girls Season 6 Episode 2 Review: Hostage Situation

19 February 2017 7:38 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Has Hannah actually grown up and gained some self-awareness? 

Girls Season 6 Episode 2 appears to suggest that the impossible has, in fact, happened. With a disastrous trip upstate, Hannah lays out some harsh truths for Marnie.

Meanwhile, back in the city, Shosh has some realizations of her own about her relationship with Jessa and her friendships.

Some of Girls' best moments take place when said girls are out of the city, thrust into new and strange environments. This was the case for Hannah with the Girls Season 6 Premiere, when she was in Montauk for the majority of the season opener.

Similarly, "Hostage Situation" found Hannah reluctantly accompanying Marnie and Desi on their secret "jaunt" to Poughkeepsie. Fittingly, that was where Marnie and Desi's relationship reached its (hopefully) final breaking point.

The revelation that Desi is actually a drug addict was, in itself, not terribly surprising. Desi has always had a »

I occasionally like to think most of this nation’s problems could have been solved had the 19th century kept all the convicts here, with the rest of law-abiding Britain upping sticks wholesale to Australia. Instead, we gifted our criminals a few acres of beautiful farming headland, perfect weather, beaches and coral and rainforests and sat back smug with our snaggle teeth and righteous, rained-on foot rot. Fast-forward, and we got back, yes, Kylie, Germaine Greer and Clive James, but also those barkeeps whose perpetual birdsong – no worries, mate! – seems expressly designed to ratchet stress, Murdoch, Foster’s and the bloody Wallabies.

‘Planet Earth II’ Review: A Revival With Greater Purpose Than Meets the Eye

18 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Within the BBC’s gorgeous documentary series, “Planet Earth II,” there are plenty of new elements to admire — and the show is eager to share. Narrator David Attenborough, sitting in a hot air balloon above snow-drenched mountaintops, checks off each general advancement during the pilot:

The filmmakers were able to get incredibly close to each animal thanks to innovative remote cameras. Further advancements in technology also meant discovering previously unobtainable “wildlife dramas.” We can see, hear, and admire these dramas better than ever, with clearer, brighter, and more comprehensive photography than has been possible prior to this.

Better yet, the progress Attenborough heartily expounds is more than evident on screen. Covering islands, mountains, jungles, deserts, grasslands, and cities, “Planet Earth II” literally covers a lot of ground in its seven episodes (the final episode is a “making of”), always with an eye toward beauty and our quickly changing environments. Impossible sights are enticingly strung together, »

Inside 'Crashing': How Pete Holmes Survived Comedy and Lived to Tell About It

"Should I say, 'Fuck Philly?'"

It's backstage on the New York leg of Pete Homles’ stand-up tour to help promote his new HBO series Crashing, and he's testing a stray thought before stepping onstage. The green room is full of bodies – including Holmes' manager, his fianceé, the show's executive producer (and tour mate) Judd Apatow and several more HBO staffers – and there's a general murmur of assent. "They love that here," someone says, and the comedian nods. Their recent Philadelphia stop reportedly had a rowdy, disruptive crowd, and as Holmes explains later, »

Full Press Release for Girls March Episodes

16 February 2017 12:35 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The first episode of Girls was a success in my opinion.  We see Hannah starting to grow up but the episode was still hilarious.  I also mentioned how I’m a much bigger fan of the show when Lena Dunham is directing.  To my dismay the entire month of March will feature episodes not directed by Lena Dunham.  Don’t worry Lena, I don’t blame you for this because my message was way too late.  And this is no knock on Jesse Peretz or Richard Shepard.  I’ve just always liked Lena Dunham directed episodes better. In any event, a new press release

TV Review: ‘Crashing’ From Pete Holmes and Judd Apatow on HBO

16 February 2017 12:20 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When describing the content of cutting-edge half-hours, the adjectives “clean,” “sweet” and “mildly Christian” rarely come up.

But the measured optimism and reflexive kindness of “Crashing” are among this show’s chief recommendations. The array of 30-minute programs now on TV is particularly rich and eclectic, but there is still a notable subset that wallow lazily into their characters’ neuroses, throw in awkward sex scenes that don’t have a compelling reason to exist, or stay mercilessly dour in a bid to seem “important” or “challenging.” “Crashing” may be a bit slight, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing: It knows what it’s going for and more often than not, fulfills its modest ambitions in amusing and diverting ways.

Many of the building blocks of “Crashing” are very familiar, but it doesn’t fall into the traps that have snared other shows like it. It’s probably wisest to view “Crashing” as an uplifting but »
