7 Great Movies You Probably Missed in 2016

20 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As with almost any year, 2016 has had its fair share of good and bad movies. We are right in the middle of the summer movie season, and it feels like there are way too many movies coming out every week. It is becoming really hard to keep up with them all. Either that, or a truly excellent movie may get little or no attention when during its initial launch. That being the case, it is really easy for some truly great movies to slip through the cracks.

In terms of what movies people are seeing this year, it isn't exactly a surprise. Though, one look at the Box Office Mojo 2016 top grossing movies chart, and there are a few things that weren't expected back in January. Disney is having another astonishing year, with Captain America: Civil War having grossed $1.147 billion worldwide, good enough for the top spot overall. Zootopia was expected to be a hit, »

Second Trailer for Animated 'Storks' Movie Directed by Nicholas Stoller

16 June 2016 9:48 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You're probably asking yourself how a stork, a girl, and a baby wound up in this situation?" WB has unveiled a new trailer for their animated comedy Storks, written & co-directed by Nicholas Stoller, behind the films Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, Neighbors and Neighbors 2. The movie is about a company that used to delivered storks that has since become a major .com delivery giant, and the workers who decide to deliver a baby. The voice cast features Andy Samberg as the voice of Junior, as well as Kelsey Grammer, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell, Key and Peele, plus Katie Crown as Tulip. This actually looks much better than expected, but I'm still not sure if it'll compare to Pixar of Disney. Have fun. Here's the second trailer for Nicholas Stoller & Doug Sweetland's Storks, direct from WB's YouTube: You can still see the first teaser trailer for WB's Storks here, »

Jordan Peele: The horror genre's unlikeliest new star

10 June 2016 5:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jordan Peele, one half of the great comedy duo Key and Peele, has unexpectedly entered a new arena: the horror genre. In addition to his forthcoming fright flick Get Out -- a "satirical" horror film starring Daniel Kaluuya, Catherine Keener and Alison Williams that Peele wrote and directed for Blumhouse -- he's now been added to the cast of Abruptio, a horror effort in which the characters are "performed entirely with lifelike puppets," according to the film's official Facebook page.  Abruptio comes from the mind of writer-director Evan Marlowe, whose resume literally includes a short film entitled Brests of the Southern Wild (he's also helmed a couple features). It will also feature the talents of horror icons Robert Englund and Sid Haig, among others. Here's the logline: A man discovers a sinister race of beings is manipulating mankind to cause chaos. He must uncover their plan before the explosive they've implanted in his neck detonates. Peele has opened up about this love for the horror genre in previous interviews, telling Rotten Tomatoes last year:  "I’m obsessed with the link between horror and comedy. I think they’re very close. They’re both about getting a very physical kind of reaction. It’s about tension and it’s about the release of tension." Abruptio is expected for release sometime in 2018. (via Bloody Disgusting) »

‘Keanu’ Review

6 June 2016 1:27 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Tiffany Haddish, Method Man, Jason Mitchell, Luis Guzman, Nia Long, Will Forte, Darrell Britt-Gibson, Jamar Malachi Neighbors, Rob Huebel | Written by Jordan Peele, Alex Rubens | Directed by Peter Atencio

Keanu sees TV’s “Key and Peele” star as Rell and Clarence respectively, two cousins who live in the city but are far from streetwise. After turning up on Rell’s dooorstep out of the blue, post Rell’s relationship break-up, the titular kitten Keanu is catnapped. Not one to rest on their laurels, and undoubtedly because Rell has become way too attached to the cat, the hopelessly straight-laced pair must impersonate ruthless killers in order to infiltrate a street gang and retrieve the purloined feline. But the incredibly adorable kitten becomes so coveted that the fight over his custody creates a gang war, forcing our two unwitting heroes to take the law into their own hands. »

‘The Walking Dead’ Cast Spoofs ‘Star Wars Holiday Special’ for Red Nose Day

27 May 2016 3:19 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC’s Red Nose Day special was filled with celebrity comedy sketches from the cast of “The Walking Dead” spoofing “Star Wars” to Sarah Silverman’s outlandish jokes. Check out a roundup of some of the night’s funniest spoofs and skits below.

The Walking Dead” Cast Spoofs “Star Wars Holiday Special”

The Walking Dead” stars Andrew Lincoln and Norman Reedus dreamed up the perfect spoof for Thursday’s Red Nose Day show.

After a long day on set dealing with “so much blood, gore and horror,” the two zombie fighters sought “something that would bring sweetness, light into the world.” In comes “The Walking Dead’s” remake of 1978’s “Star Wars Holiday Special.”

Cast mates Steven Yeun, Melissa McBride, Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand, David Morrissey and Christian Serratos joined forces with special guest stars Jeff Goldblum, Dax Shepard, Yvette-Nicole Brown and Chris Hardwick for the special, which included »

Watch The Walking Dead Cast Spoof the Star Wars Holiday Special

27 May 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Norman Reedus, Andrew Lincoln and the cast of The Walking Dead got very silly for Red Nose Day last night on NBC. And it's something fans are going to want to watch right now! The Red Nose Day special brought a number of familiar Walking Dead faces in to join the fun, including Steven Yeun, Sonequa Martin-Green and Josh McDermitt. The gang spoofs the classic Star Wars Holiday Special with their own Walking Dead Red Nose Day special. And it's as goofy and off the wall as one might expect.

After shutting gofer McDermitt out of their little milkshake party behind the set of The Walking Dead, Andrew Lincoln discovers he's left work with something red on his face. It turns out to be quite a bit of blood. Just the sight of this sticky liquid sends him into a quiet depression. And he expresses his desires for something lighter to brighten his day. »

Key and Peele's Generosity Backfires in this Sketch for 'Red Nose Day'

27 May 2016 6:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been almost a year since Key & Peele ended but it's good to know that Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are still killing it with comedy sketches. As part of NBC's 'Red Nose Day 2016' — an annual telethon where celebrities help raise money for helping children in poverty — Key and Peele filmed a sketch where the two men compete to impress their dates ... by giving away all their life savings.  What starts at smaller donations ($50, $100) soon escalates quickly into Key's house and Peele's assets as the two continue to keep one-upping each other. The humor that made Key & Peele such a wonderful show are all at play here ("I would donate myself into slavery and I'm black," Key hisses at one point) and the sketch takes an even funnier turn as the guys find themselves screwed over by their own generosity. Anything for a good cause!  You can watch the sketch below. »

Peekaboo! The Movies Of 2016 At Halftime

22 May 2016 9:57 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Nearing the halfway mark of the movie year and teetering, as we all are, on the edge of another summer movie abyss which holds only the thinnest promise of providing strong reason to tread amongst the mall-igentsia in search of air-conditioned escape, I find myself feeling far less regret than usual over the movies I’ve missed so far in 2016. Usually by this point I’m bemoaning having had to sideline 20 or 30 interesting pictures because I couldn’t get out to a theater. This year I’ve whiffed on about the same number of movies of interest, but only nine or 10 of those misses have anything like real regret attached to them. It does actively annoy me that I will have to catch up with the likes of Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s Cemetery of Splendor, the foodie doc City of Gold, Jeff NicholsMidnight Special, Ethan Hawke as Chet Baker in Born to Be Blue, »

Why the Peabody Awards at 75 Still Matter to the Winners

20 May 2016 11:39 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Walter Cronkite once famously said, “You count your Emmys, you cherish your Peabodys.”

It’s a quote that comes up often with people connected with the esteemed Peabody Awards, from their director, Jeffrey Jones, to Keegan-Michael Key, a past winner and the host of the 75th anniversary awards ceremony, scheduled for May 21 at Cipriani Wall Street in downtown New York.

The question is, why? Why do so many people working across all aspects of television — from the entertainment side to the documentary, news programming and educational — so crave the honor of being named a Peabody winner?

“There’s a mystique to them,” explains Key, who won a Peabody himself in 2014 for his Comedy Central show, “Key & Peele.” “They have a passion for recognizing people who try to make an impact on the world. We try to put good vibrations out there and say something important socially, and for someone to recognize you for it, »

Trailer for the Lord and Miller-produced time travel comedy series Making History

17 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first trailer has been released for Fox’s upcoming time travel comedy Making History which stars Adam Pally, Leighton Meester and Yassir Lester. Watch it out below…

Produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (“Lego Movie,” “21 Jump Street”), and written by Julius “Goldy” Sharpe (“The Grinder,” Family Guy), the new comedy Making History follows three friends from two different centuries as they try to balance the thrill of time travel with the mundane concerns of their present-day lives. Two shows in one, it’s both a rollicking historical adventure, and a contemporary comedy about love, friendship and trying to fit in to an increasingly complex and impersonal world. Dan Chambers (Adam Pally, “The Mindy Project,” “Happy Endings”), a computer science professor at a small Massachusetts college, recently discovered time travel and has been transporting himself back to the 1700s to spend time with the colonial woman he’s fallen for. »

‘Prison Break,’ ’24: Legacy,’ ‘Lethal Weapon’ and More Trailers From Fox’s 2016-17 Season

16 May 2016 3:08 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox has released the first trailers for the network’s 2016-17 lineup of shows, including revivals of “Prison Break” and “24,” adaptations of “Lethal Weapon” and “The Exorcist,” the latest musical drama from “Empire” creator Lee Daniels, and more.

Fall:

Lethal Weapon

Based on the hit movie franchise of the same name, “Lethal Weapon” follows iconic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, as they work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. From the moment the brash and impulsive Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) meets prudent, by-the-book Roger Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), it seems as if this partnership is doomed. But after their first case together, both realize this arrangement might just work out after all – if Riggs doesn’t get them killed first.

The Exorcist

Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, “The Exorcist” terrified audiences around the world. »

Comedy Central Chiefs Talk Exec Shake-Up, Ratings Struggles, Amy Schumer’s Future

10 May 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Plans for an orderly transition at the top of Comedy Central were shaken Monday night when news leaked that president Michele Ganeless would depart the network and be succeeded by her top deputy, programming chief Kent Alterman. Viacom music and entertainment group president Doug Herzog — whose charges include Comedy Central, MTV, and several other networks — and Ganeless had hoped to announce the change to staff Tuesday morning. It didn’t work out that way.

Regardless, the change at the top takes place at a critical time for the network. Like MTV, Comedy Central targets a young audience and has experienced ratings declines sharper than those being endured at other cable networks. The worst of those have come in the 11 p.m. hour, where new late-night hosts Trevor Noah and Larry Wilmore are drawing numbers significantly below those of their predecessors, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

5 Reasons Why Nothing Can Stop 'Jungle Book' at the Box Office

2 May 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Many box office analysts predicted that "The Jungle Book" would not only three-peat atop the box office this weekend, but that it would earn more than three new wide releases combined.

In fact, it earned nearly twice the combined total of those new releases. In its third weekend, the Disney talking-animal tale earned an estimated $42.4 million in North America, while newcomers "Keanu" (at an estimated $9.4 million), "Mother's Day" ($8.3 million), and "Ratchet and Clank" ($4.8 million) combined for about $22.5 million.

So far, "Jungle Book" has been blessed, not only by its own strong reviews and word-of-mouth, but by weak competition. Still, good fortune and good timing aren't enough to explain why the Rudyard Kipling adaptation has held up so well or why none of its rivals can muster up much interest on their own. Here are five reasons why "Jungle Book" bested all comers this weekend.
