On the 15th Anniversary of 13 Going on 30, Some Fans Are Just Realizing This Crazy Casting Fact

Believe it or not, it's the 15th anniversary of 13 Going on 30, which was released on April 23, 2004. If you watch it for the 200th time (as one should), you might notice something you hadn't before: Brie Larson is in it. She was one of the Six Chicks - yes, the mean girls with the side ponies - led by Judy Greer, aka "Tom-Tom." There's a chance you already knew that, but someone who didn't is Larson's current costar, Mark Ruffalo, who, of course, is 13 Going on 30's main star besides Jennifer Garner. Because Larson had a smaller role, the two never worked together directly on the movie, and Ruffalo just learned about the connection while on the red carpet premiere of the pair's new movie, Avengers: Endgame.

Pretty crazy, huh? Before Larson was an Oscar-nominated actress with leading roles in Room and as Captain Marvel, she was in smaller movies including Sleepover and Hoot.

‘Archer 1999:’ The Gang Heads to Space in the Trailer for 10th Season of Fxx Comedy (Video)

  • The Wrap
“Archer” is heading into space, well, at least what Sterling Archer thinks space would be like.

Fxx released the trailer for the 10th season, which will be titled, “Archer: 1999.” You can give it a look above.

“Archer: 1999” will be the third straight season to be a “coma dream” for H. Jon Benjamin’s Sterling Archer, who was shot at the end of Season 7. The past two seasons have incorporated the characters into a 1947-era noir story (“Dreamland”) and a 1980s-set adventure called “Danger Island.”

Despite the “1999” title, the 10th season will see the gang blast off into the future — and into space.

‘Archer 1999’ Trailer: Season 10 Takes the Gang to the Danger Galaxy

It’s been a while since “Archer” left its original ’60s-inspired spy origins in the rear view mirror. But for its next trick, the show is heading somewhere light years away.

It’s not to say that Android Krieger was the only thing missing from the long-running Fxx animated series. But as part of the upcoming Season 10 of one of the funniest shows of the past decade, when put alongside an alienized Pam and the show’s title character behind the controls of an intergalactic combat ship, it’s fun to see the whole gang still together in a completely different context.

This is the latest in a long line of themed “Archer” seasons. Beginning with “Archer: Vice,” when the show was still in its “present,” the series has dabbled with season-long spins on the usual shenanigans from the team led by Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin), his mother Mallory (Jessica Walters), his on-again,

Archer Season 10 Will Pay Homage to Alien, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Battlestar Galactica

If you’re a fan of Archer, then you’re obviously excited about Season 10 and we’ve learned a few new things that we can expect to see in it.

Archer season 10 will be called "Archer: 1999". In “Danger Island” we saw Sterling Archer seemingly waking from the coma he's been in since the end of Season 7 and he finds himself in a cryogenic pod, on board a spaceship. A lot of fans thought that this might mean the next chapter would be set in the distant future, but it will be set in the year 1999.

With the new season taking place on a space shuttle, we are going to see some homages to classic sci-fi properties. Specifically designs from Alien, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Battlestar Galactica. Executive producer Matt Thompson said:

“The first first one that people will notice is as we fade up in the first episode,

How ‘Daisy Jones & the Six’ Offers a Positive Tale for Women in Music

Anyone who’s attempted to write an oral history knows they aren’t easy. Stitching together the threads of dozens — if not hundreds — of hours of interviews with multiple people into a cohesive narrative can drive anyone bonkers. So the fact that Taylor Jenkins Reid decided to use this format for her latest novel, Daisy Jones & the Six, which centers on a fictional 1970s rock band, may seem like a masochistic endeavor.

“I wanted you to feel immersed in it, and not like you were reading fiction, but like you were there.

Blumhouse Doesn’t Have The Rights To Make Halloween Sequels Yet

After bringing us easily the most critically – and commercially – well-received movie in the franchise in a long while, it seems like the question about further Halloween sequels coming from Blumhouse is more of a when rather than an if. Founder Jason Blum has previously said, after all, that he’s extremely keen to get yet another return for Michael Myers off the ground, but it seems there’s a pretty big obstacle preventing that from happening right now: the production company doesn’t currently have the rights to make another sequel.

While speaking with MovieFone, Blum reaffirmed his intention to make more Halloween films, even going so far as to say that if it were up to him, then he’d serve up another 10. Though he seems positive about his future with the franchise, then, he also explained that a deal to allow Blumhouse to produce more movies hasn’t been finalized.

Jason Blum Hopes To Make 10 More Halloween Sequels

David Gordon Green’s Halloween came to us last year as the eleventh installment in a franchise that hadn’t made it to cinemas in over nine years, but after the slasher sequel proved such a hit with audiences and critics, producer Jason Blum apparently sees potential for the series to keep going well into the future.

Seeing how the last Halloween made over $253 million on a small fraction of the budget, it’s long felt inevitable that Blumhouse Productions would be pushing forward with a follow-up, despite Blum recently reaffirming that another movie isn’t official yet. In an interview with Moviefone, however, the producer expressed his optimism that the franchise has a whole lot more than one sequel left in it:

“Well, we had talked about it but right now we’re not shooting any Halloween movies right now because we don’t have deal rights to the sequels.
