‘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.

Box Office: ‘Jungle Book’ Dominating with $38 Million Weekend

30 April 2016 7:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Showing serious staying power, Disney’s “The Jungle Book” is dominating domestic moviegoing this weekend with an estimated $38 million — the eighth-best third weekend of all time.

That’s more than four times the closest competitor, New Line’s moderate opening for the Key and Peele action-comedy “Keanu” with $9.2 million at 2,658 sites.

Open Road’s launch of romantic comedy “Mother’s Day” generated a modest $8 million for a fourth-place finish behind the second weekend of Universal’s “The Huntsman: Winter’s War.” Gramercy’s “Ratchet & Clank” saw limited traction in its fifth-place opening with $5.6 million.

Should Saturday’s estimates hold, all three openers will finish the weekend at the lower end of recent forecasts while  “The Jungle Book” remains an impressive draw at multiplexes with a decline of only 38% from its last frame. Stellar reviews and strong word of mouth will have propelled the tale of an orphaned boy and talking »

‘Jungle Book’ to Haul More at Weekend Box Office Than Newcomers Combined

29 April 2016 1:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Jungle Book” remains a box office force with early Friday estimates showing a $36 million third weekend — more than the combined take of new titles “Keanu,” “Mother’s Day” and “Ratchet & Clank.”

Open Road’s romantic comedy “Mother’s Day” should gross almost $4 million Friday and finish the weekend around $11 million, with New Line’s Key and Peele action-comedy “Keanu” following closely with a $3.5 million Friday and a $10 million weekend. Gramercy’s “Ratchet & Clank” will earn about $1.8 million on Friday for a $7 million weekend.

Meanwhile, Disney’s “The Jungle Book” will decline by only 40% and finish the weekend with a 17-day domestic total in the $245 million range. If it hits $36 million this weekend, it would be the 10th-highest third weekend haul of all time, replacing “Iron Man 3” at $35.8 million.

The weekend is something of a prelude to what’s widely expected to be a massive domestic opening on May »

People Review: Key and Peele Paw Around for Laughs in Keanu, but Their Itty Bitty City Kitty Steals the Show

29 April 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Peer deep within your soul. Understand what kind of Key and Peele fan you are. Because if the East/West College Bowl, Obama Anger Translator Luther, or the valets whose heads explode over "Liam Neesons" are strictly your jam, then Keanu may not be. If, however, you embrace the pair's more strangely ludicrous, high-concept fare, then settle in. Jordan Peele plays Rell, adrift about being recently dumped by his girlfriend. Keegan-Michael Key is his cousin, Clarence, whose wife is conveniently out of town for the weekend. Nothing appears to lift Rell's spirits until a sweet little kitty appears on his doorstep. »

Keanu tops @TannerZee's what-to-watch list

29 April 2016 9:22 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

This week in theatres: a kitty kidnapped by gangsters, intertwining stories about mom, and a Lombax teams up with a robot to save the planet! 

Keanu

To sum up Keanu in six words: Key, Peele and a stolen kitten. Then take that, add in Will Forte with beard-braids, and Method Man, who plays the the gang leader who does the kidnapping, and you’ve got yourself a pretty greatJohn Wick parody. If this is the moment that you’re making the connection that Keanu just so happens to be the name of the actor who plays John Wick, then take a second and let it sink in. I’m a big fan of Key and Peele’s genius writing and humour. But hey, Key and Peele aside, the movie has a cute kitty and that’s probably reason enough to go see it.

Why Movie Theaters Are Healthier Than You Think (Podcast)

29 April 2016 9:12 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Movie theaters are facing a lot of challenges these days. Streaming platforms continue to offer a broader set of options, as demonstrated by this week's announcement about Criterion and Turner Classic Movies' FilmStruck platform. Nevertheless, the data tells a more complicated story: From the big budget releases to the specialty titles, plenty of movies are doing quite well at the box office. In this week's episode of Screen Talk, Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson discuss two of the highest-grossing indie releases so far this year (including "The Witch," above) and also scrutinize the potential for one new bigger release, the Key and Peele comedy "Keanu." From there, they turn to the news of DreamWorks' recent acquisition, and look ahead to the company's future.   Listen to the full episode above. Screen Talk is available on iTunes.

Warner Bros.’ kitten comedy “Keanu” grossed an estimated $560,000 in Thursday night previews. The film stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele as two friends who infiltrate a violent Los Angeles street gang in order to retrieve a kidnapped kitten. Made on a $15-million production budget, “Keanu” is expected to make that amount back this weekend as it opens — and perhaps even more.

Keanu – Review

29 April 2016 6:23 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

When you are given a film starring Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, and an adorable kitten, you should know what to expect. The comedic dynamic duo rose to fame following MADtv with their own series on Comedy Central – Key & Peele. Following a pre-recorded sketch comedy format, the show was able to examine and poke fun at social stereotypes, with stand-up segments peppered in where they frequently pointed out how nerdy and non-black they are in real life. This idea… along with a cute kitten, of course… is Keanu. Though the title might be a not so subtle wink at the audience who are familiar with the “Woah!” action star of the same name, the film seems to stay more in the nerdy guys who aren’t good at being black wheelhouse; something that Key and Peele excel at, but a crutch that fans of the series (like myself) have seen them »
