‘Cardboard Boxer’ Trailer: Thomas Haden Church Struggles To Escape Dark World of Fighting Homeless Men for Pay

30 August 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Knate Lee, known for producing the Johnny Knoxville-led “Jackass 3D” and “Bad Grandpa,” has stepped behind the camera to direct his first feature film “Cardboard Boxer,” starring Thomas Haden Church.

The drama – which appears to have skipped the festival circuit – centers on Willie (Church), a homeless man who is paid by two rich teens to fight other men for cash and then struggles to escape the dark world he’s gotten himself into. With the help of a new pen-pal and a trusting new friend (Terrence Howard), he hopes to turn his life around. 

Written by Lee, “Cardboard Boxer” also co-stars “Narcos’s” Boyd Holbrook, Rhys Wakefield, and musician Macy Gray. Check out the first trailer below.

Coming Distractions: The trailer for Kidnap is a parent’s worst nightmare

22 August 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Trigger warning for anybody who has a kid, knows a kid, once met a kid, or ever was a kid. This trailer for Kidnap is essentially that nagging fear that is constantly running in the background of every parent’s brain, but amplified by a thousand and then condensed into two minutes. Halle Berry plays a woman who brings her aggressively adorable child to a crowded playground while ominously placid guitar chords flit through the soundtrack. Given the title of the movie, you can probably assume what happens next. The gentle plucking music gives way to machinist clangs and bwomps, and the terrified mother spends the rest of the preview ignoring protocol and causing traffic accidents while chasing after the unfamiliar car she saw her son pushed into.

Directed by Spanish-born filmmaker Luis Prieto (Pusher) from a screenplay by first-time feature writer (and Bad Grandpa associate producer) Knate Gwaltney, this »

Movie Review: Bad Moms alternates satire with easy answers

27 July 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Hollywood franchise-building is a competitive business, so it’s remarkable to see how many different studios have agreed to put aside their differences and allow the Bad series to develop across various corporate borders. Sure, there may not any formal connection between Bad Santa, Bad Teacher, Bad Grandpa, Bad Words, Bad Gymnast (sorry, The Bronze), and the new Bad Moms apart from the universal desire to attract audiences with the promise of zanily inappropriate behavior from people who are supposed to be role models and/or authority figures. But they do seem to be the product of an agreement that everyone is allowed to rip off this concept from everyone else. All of these studios and filmmakers may revel in bad behavior, but they seem to know how to share.

Shared ideas aside, there is something more transgressive, however faintly, about the impulses behind Bad Moms. When »

Rumor: Maisie Williams, Alexandra Shipp & ‘The Witch’ Star Anya Taylor-Joy Are Up For The ‘New Mutants’ Roles

31 March 2016 4:32 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, it appears there is some movement on “The New Mutants,” front, the “X-Men” spin-off that featured young, teenage mutants introduced in the comics after the original X-team started to grow older. This morning word came from X-Men Cinematic Universe gatekeeper Simon Kinberg that “The New Mutants” would take on a Ya-vibe given its younger actors. He also said the script, being co-written by “The Fault In Our Stars” director Josh Boone and Knate Gwaltney (“Bad Grandpa”) was being penned as we speak. But is it closer to completion than the producer intimated? Or are just the main characters nailed down and Fox knows who they want? According to a HitFix report, 20th Century Fox has set their sights on two new actors, Maisie Williams from “Game Of Thrones,” and up-and-comer Anya Taylor-Joy from the indie horror “The Witch,” to start alongside Alexandra Shipp from “X-Men: Apocalypse” who will apparently reprise her role as Storm. »

Impractical Jokers movie to film in August

21 March 2016 4:38 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




The Tenderloins are planning to shoot a Jackass-style Impractical Jokers movie in August 2016...

TV comedy Impractical Jokers continues to go from strength to strength. With the fifth season of the hit show currently airing in the Us, and after a brief sell-out tour of the UK, the series is set to hit the big screen.

The stars of the hidden camera show, improv troupe The Tenderloins, intend to start shooting this summer. In an interview with our American cousins, Den of Geek Us, star James ‘Murr’ Murray told them “We are hoping to shoot the Impractical Jokers movie this August, yes. If you look at our calendar, we have all of August off from touring.”

He also gave an idea of what we can expect from the film. “The idea is that it would be a mega version of the show, kinda just like Jackass. It would be a buddy comedy, »

‘Dirty Grandpa’ Review

2 February 2016 2:49 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Zoey Deutch, Aubrey Plaza, Jason Mantzoukas, Dermot Mulroney, Julianne Hough, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Brandon Mychal Smith, Adam Pally | Written by John Phillips | Directed by Dan Mazer

Sacha Baron Cohen cohort Dan Mazer – who produced Cohen’s movies Bruno, Borat and The Dictator – follows up his feature debut, I Give It A Year, with a Cohen-style gross-out comedy starring the legend that is Robert De Niro. This time round De Niro, in another of his comedic roles (his last The Intern was superb Fyi), he appears alongside the smouldering sex-bomb that is Zac Efron. And both of them get topless. Which should be all most of this films target audience will need to know really. But I digress.

Dirty Grandpa sees preppy Jason (Efron), just days away from getting married to his equally uptight fiancée, tasked with taking his grandpa, Dick, to Florida for Spring Break »

20 January 2016 1:22 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

High School Musical” turns 10 years old on Jan. 20, marking the decade-long anniversary for Disney Channel’s record-making hit.
