Hulu Tests Whether Vr Can Be Funny With New Interactive 360 Experience ‘Door No. 1’
Any time a new technology is introduced into the creative space, the challenge for creators is what they might choose to do with it. So this week, the Hulu Vr app launched a new interactive 360 video experience… that might give you the opportunity to get high with Snoop Dogg.

The new Vr experience “Ryot’s Door No. 1,” which premiered this week on the Hulu Vr app, aims not just to explore the boundaries of this tech but also create a funny and entertaining experience. Set at a 10-year high school reunion and shot from a first-person Pov, you’re in the center of the story as a guy who hopes to hook up with his high school crush. The risks standing in your way: old friends, drugs, a long-lost time capsule, a show choir reunion, and/or Snoop Dogg.

The “and/or” part of that sentence comes courtesy of the

‘You’re The Worst’ Cast Previews Season 4: New Confidences, Curveballs, and Post-Proposal Fallout

‘You’re The Worst’ Cast Previews Season 4: New Confidences, Curveballs, and Post-Proposal Fallout
Fxx comedy “You’re The Worst” has broken traditional storytelling format before, namely in the fifth episode of its third season (“Twenty-Two”), where Edgar (Desmin Borges) took center stage and proved the show is truly an ensemble. But the fourth season premiere, “It’s Been,” will toss all rules out the window by dedicating its first half-hour of back-to-back episodes solely to Jimmy’s (Chris Geere) post-proposal journey.

“Stephen asked me to grow a beard, so I knew that A) there was going to be a time jump and B) Jimmy was going to run away,” Geere tells Variety. “And I thought, ‘Of course he’s going to run away!’ He’s not going to turn the car around and try to sort it out, is he? He’s going to take his own self-indulgent amount of time to realize that he needs to take responsibility for his actions.”

After proposing to long-time girlfriend Gretchen (Aya Cash) at

The Series With the Best Queer Representation on TV Right Now — IndieWire Critics Survey

The Series With the Best Queer Representation on TV Right Now — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Which TV series has the best Lgbtq representation?

Alan Sepinwall (@sepinwall)

Lgbtq representation still has a long way to go on TV, but it’s better than at any other point in my lifetime, whether in shows specifically about those issues (“Transparent”) or simply featuring well-rounded characters who happen to be queer (Captain Holt on “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”).

I could pick plenty of shows here as the one with the best representation, but the obvious choice to me (and not just because of when this question was timed to) is the one with the most representation: “Orange Is the New Black.”

One of the big problems with

James Gunn Reveals a Sixth Post-Credits Scene That Was Cut From Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

As most of you already know, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had five post-credits scenes and they were all great! Turns out there was a sixth post-credits scene that was shot but it ended up being cut.

Director James Gunn talked about the scene. He revealed what it entailed and why he ultimately decided not to use it. USA Today breaks it down, explaining:

The scene Gunn left out involved Gef the Ravager, a quirky supporting character played by Steve Agee, who was hit by Yondu’s deadly arrow during a major fight. The director filmed a scene where heroes Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff) are conversing and suddenly hear screaming. “We realize that Gef has been on the ship the entire time mortally wounded," Gunn says. "It ended up being a little confusing.”

It sounds like it would've been enjoyable, but I'm not going to miss it.

James Gunn details a deleted post-credits scene from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 certainly upped the ante when it comes to post-credits sequences with five in all, but it turns out we could have had a sixth as James Gunn has revealed to USA Today that he shot an additional scene featuring Steve Agee’s ravager character Gef.

The scene would have featured Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff) are conversing and suddenly hear screaming from Gef, who had been injured by Yondu’s arrow earlier in the film, with Gunn stating that: “We realize that Gef has been on the ship the entire time mortally wounded. It ended up being a little confusing.”

Are you disappointed this scene didn’t make the final cut? Let us know in the comments below…

James Gunn Reveals The Sixth Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Post-Credits Scene We Didn’t See

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 breaks the mold when it comes to its post-credits scenes. After 13 movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve got used to the formula of having one mid-credits scene and then one post-credits sequence at the end. Vol. 2 goes above and beyond anything that’s come before, however, by delivering Five scenes scattered throughout the credits – you can check out our guide to each one of them here.

As crazy as five post-credits scenes may sound, it’s now been revealed that director James Gunn originally planned for there to be yet another one. While talking to USA Today, Gunn spoke about how this deleted sequence would have featured Gef the Ravager (played by Steve Agee). If you recall, the character showed up in the movie when he was attacked by Yondu’s Yaka Arrow. In the post-credits scene, Gamora and Mantis would have

With the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 only about a month away, Marvel has unveiled a brand new extended TV spot for the film to reveal that tickets are now officially available to purchase through Fandango. So, on top of checking out the spot, which is cut to David Bowie’s “Suffragette City” (a song also used for a previous promo), be among the first to buy your Guardians tickets by clicking here.

While we’ve already seen quite a bit of footage featured in the promo, including a worry-free/seat belt-less Baby Groot, Nebula-evading Gamora and exuberant Drax, there’s plenty of never-before-seen bits as well. Not to mention, comedian Steve Agee (who we reported would be appearing in the film last year) briefly makes his first appearance as a Ravager named Gef towards the end of the spot.

Beauty and the Beast Breaks Box Office Records with $170M

Beauty and the Beast Breaks Box Office Records with $170M
Last month, box office analysts were predicting that Disney's long-awaited live-action remake of Beauty and the BEast will take in $120 million at the box office, a debut that most studios would be happy with for any film. As we got closer and closer to the release, the projections started to increase, with some predicting it could earn upwards of $150 million, which would still put it just short of the all-time highest March opening, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice's $166.1 million tally last year. It seems Beauty and the Beast has outdone itself, besting all projections for a record-breaking $170 million box office estimate.

Disney itself was downplaying those projections, with their own internal estimates placing their debut at $100 million. Box Office Mojo reports that Beauty and the Beast debuted in 4,210 theaters, earning an impressive $40,380 per-screen average. While this 4,210-theater rollout is certainly large, it ranks as the 29th widest of all time,

Beauty and the Beast on Track to Smash Spring Box Office Records

Beauty and the Beast on Track to Smash Spring Box Office Records
It wasn't too long ago that the month of March wasn't exactly seen as the home to box office juggernauts, but that all changed seven years ago when Disney's Alice in Wonderland opened huge with $116.1 million. Just a few years later, Lionsgate positioned its new franchise The Hunger Games in March, where it opened to the tune of a record-breaking $152.5 million, and last year, that record was broken by Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice's $166.1 million. This year, Disney's Beauty and the Beast could very well vie for that record, but while it will easily come out on top this weekend, we're predicting this live-action fairy tale adaptation will arrive just short of the record, with $139.7 million.

Last month, box office analysts predicted that Beauty and the Beast could open around $120 million, while Disney itself was downplaying those projections, with their own internal estimates placing their debut at $100 million.

Belko Experiment Red Band Clip Shows a Bloody Office Massacre

Belko Experiment Red Band Clip Shows a Bloody Office Massacre
With the March 17 release date fast approaching, Blumhouse Tilt has released another new clip for the sadistic thriller The Belko Experiment, which offers a bloody look at the gruesome workplace violence. This clip in particular features a glimpse at Sean Gunn's Marty Espenscheid trying to come to grips with everything happening around him, telling himself that it's "all in my mind." Unfortunately for him, that isn't exactly what's happening, in this clip that not only features some new footage, but also a few quotes from the nation's critics.

Blumhouse Tilt debuted this clip on YouTube, which also features Abraham Benrubi as Chet Valincourt, who begs Marty to "get down" under one of the tables like he is positioned. Unfortunately for Chet and Marty, it doesn't matter if they're taking cover or not, since, one by one, these employees' heads start exploding. Trying to rationalize the sights and sounds around him,

Belko Experiment Claymation Short Is Bloody, Violent and Insane

Belko Experiment Claymation Short Is Bloody, Violent and Insane
With The Belko Experiment hitting theaters in just a few weeks, Blumhouse Tilt has been releasing new footage to get fans ready for this terrifying thriller. Today we have a new video that doesn't exactly show any footage from the movie, but instead offers a glimpse at what the movie might look like in claymation. This new short film from director Lee Hardcastle perfectly captures the tone of The Belko Experiment, while going hilariously over the top with gore in only the way that claymation can offer.

Blumhouse Tilt posted this hilarious video on YouTube and their social media pages today, which comes from the twisted mind of filmmaker Lee Hardcastle. Back in 2012, the filmmaker was chosen as the winner of a contest for the horror anthology film The ABCs of Death, which featured shorts from 25 established filmmakers, and one short film from an aspiring director. Lee Hardcastle beat out

Belko Experiment Sneak Peek Delivers a Hard Hitting Message

Belko Experiment Sneak Peek Delivers a Hard Hitting Message
Blumhouse Tilt has released a new clip from their highly-anticipated thriller The Belko Experiment, which shows Belko Industries boss Barry Norris (Tony Goldwyn) making a big decision and laying down the law for his Belko employees. Instead of waiting for their mysterious captors to kill off 60 employees, Barry has apparently decided to take the other choice, which involves the employees themselves killing off 30 people. Barry reveals at the end of the clip that they need "order," but it's clear that his co-workers aren't too thrilled with this plan.

Blumhouse Tilt released this clip on YouTube earlier today, which also reveals that they only have 20 minutes to kill off 30 people, or else 60 people will be killed by those who are watching them. It was teased in previous trailers that each employee has an implant, and with just the flick of a switch, a life can be taken in an instant. It

Belko Experiment Poster Turns Office Supplies Into a Deadly Weapon

Belko Experiment Poster Turns Office Supplies Into a Deadly Weapon
Last month, fans got their first real look at The Belko Experiment, the terrifying new workplace thriller which comes from writer James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy) and director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek), with a new red band trailer. While we wait for the next batch of footage to come through, Blumhouse Tilt has dropped the first poster, which teases some of the mayhem that's in store for the fans. The one-sheet even includes a critic's quote, which claims this movie is, "Office Space meets Battle Royale."

The poster was unveiled on Twitter earlier today, showing an unspecified office employee using a bulky tape dispenser to bludgeon one of his co-workers to death. This is not the story of one crazed employee going on an office-wide rampage, but something far more sinister entirely. On what appears to be a normal day at Belko Industries, Belko employees are horrified when they

‘Mr. Neighbor’s House’: A Peek Inside Adult Swim’s David Lynch-esque Children’s Show

  • Indiewire
Brian Huskey looks like the unassuming everyman. But that’s where his comedy lies.

Huskey, an original member of the Upright Citizens Brigade, has made a name for himself by playing average-looking guys with a dark core. That successful formula is on full display in “Mr. Neighbor’s House,” a twisted take on a children’s TV host that premieres Friday night on Adult Swim.

“I’ve always been fascinated by human struggle and insanity,” Huskey told IndieWire. “I’ve always found really dark stuff to be funny. I think a lot of comedians do. I realize for myself, because I do get cast in a lot of ‘everyman’ roles, it’s almost a source of pride for me to say, ‘I look like this, but I can do this.’ And this is what I get excited to express myself, through a darker explosion.”

Huskey is also a regular on TBS’ “People of Earth,

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Alien Revealed, New Trailer Coming Soon

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Alien Revealed, New Trailer Coming Soon
Fans who were at Marvel's Comic-Con Hall H presentation this summer got to see the first footage from Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which made the surprising reveal that Kurt Russell is playing Ego the Living Planet, the father of Chris Pratt's Star-Lord. That footage was never released to the public after Sdcc, although a different trailer was released in October. Director James Gunn recently revealed that the new trailer will be online very soon. While the director didn't say when exactly the footage would be released, he did tease that not much will be revealed.

The Hollywood Reporter caught up with James Gunn at a launch party for the trailer to another one of his films, the intense thriller The Belko Experiment. When asked which film's trailer was harder to put together, James Gunn revealed the Guardians 2 was more difficult, since the expectations are so high. Here's what he had to say below.

First Look at James Gunn's The Belko Experiment

First Look at James Gunn's The Belko Experiment
Last year, while filmmaker James Gunn was working on the script for his new superhero sequel Guardians of the Galaxy 2, he was also sharing updates on a new film he had written and will produce, entitled The Belko Experiment. The filmmaker revealed that the idea for this story came to him in a dream, and he spent the next two weeks hammering out the script. In March, Australian director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) came aboard to direct, with production taking place last summer, but we haven't heard anything about the project since then. Earlier today, the Toronto International Film Festival announced that The Belko Experiment will have its world premiere as part of the Midnight Madness section, while the first photos and plot details were unveiled.

The director revealed that after MGM president Jonathan Glickman wanted to make the film, he had to promise to stay true to the
