Everything New and Leaving Hulu in August, From ‘A Simple Favor’ to ‘Jawline’

  • The Wrap
The time has come for Hulu to release its list of everything coming and going in the month of August.

This will come in handy after the “Bachelorette” season finale in late July leaves us in desperate need of something else to watch.

In August, a new episode of Hulu’s horror anthology “Into The Dark” arrives, in which a group of social outcasts who are stuck in weekend detention are confronted by the school’s legendary hauntings.

Emmy spotlight: Daniel Levy pens hilarious, heartfelt 5th season episodes of ‘Schitt’s Creek’

Over the course of its five seasons, Pop TV’s flagship series “Schitt’s Creek” has pulled off the unusual, enviable feat of improving with age and besting its own high bar season after season. While its incredible ensemble led by Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara continues to find new and exciting layers to their characters, the show’s co-creator, writer, and star Daniel Levy deserves the lion’s share of the credit for the careful evolution of the series from biting satire to joyous celebration of family, community and authenticity. With its most recent season, which just aired its finale in April, “Schitt’s Creek” has firmly established itself as one of TV’s funniest and most sincere shows, for which Daniel Levy deserves major Emmy attention.

Well, this is it, folks. Time to talk about one of the most important film events of the year — the Cannes Film Festival — and which buzzy titles are up for grabs this year.

Beautiful Trailer for John Lithgow's The Tomorrow Man Has a Whole Lot of Heart

Here’s a trailer for you to enjoy for the new film The Tomorrow Man, starring John Lithgow and Blythe Danner. Lithgow stars as Ed and Danner as Ronnie, two people in a small town who come together with all their baggage in tow. Here’s the synopsis from the IMDb page:

Ed Hemsler spends his life preparing for a disaster that may never come. Ronnie Meisner spends her life shopping for things she may never use. In a small town somewhere in America, these two people will try to find love while trying not to get lost in each other's stuff.

I really enjoyed this trailer. I think it looks lovely. I’m already a big fan of both Danner and Lithgow, and admire each of them as both comedic and dramatic actors.

‘The Unicorn’: Rob Corddry & Michaela Watkins To Co-Star In CBS Comedy Pilot, John Hamburg To Direct

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Childrens Hospital alum Rob Corddry and former Casual star Michaela Watkins are set for lead roles opposite star-producer Walton Goggins in CBS’ single-camera comedy pilot The Unicorn. John Hamburg has been tapped to direct the pilot from Bill Martin and Mike Schiff, Kapital Entertainment and CBS TV Studios.

The Unicorn, originally developed as a single-camera, was picked up to pilot as a multi-camera. It was subsequently reverted to its original single-camera format and is the only single-camera comedy pilot at CBS this season; all others are multi-camera/hybrid.

Written by Martin and Schiff and inspired by a true story, The Unicorn centers on Wade (Goggins), a recent widower who is eager to move on from the most difficult year of his life, only to realize he’s utterly unprepared to raise his two daughters on his own and equally unprepared for the dating world — where,

Schitt's Creek: Patrick's Coming Out Episode Has Fans Sharing Their Own Beautiful Stories

One of the things I most admire about Schitt's Creek is showrunner and star Dan Levy's continued dedication to making sure the show's titular small town is homophobia-free. While deep and important issues are explored in the comedy from time to time, there's a lightness to Schitt's Creek that makes me excited to watch every week.

Part of that comes from knowing that, while the characters can be oblivious and selfish, and the jokes as razor-sharp as the heel of one of Moira's 7-inch designer boots, I never have to worry about seeing Levy's David be bullied or persecuted for being pansexual. This is a series you can watch with the confidence that it won't leave you emotionally demolished at the end of its allotted half hour. Given how draining the world has been of late, visiting Schitt's Creek it's a welcome, joyous retreat.

Roger Ailes movie starring Charlize Theron gets December release date: Will it be this year’s ‘Vice’ at the Oscars?

Handicapping an unreleased, untitled film’s Oscar chances in March is a risky prospect at best, but the recent announcement that Lionsgate’s movie about political Svengali and former Fox News president Roger Ailes will be released on December 20 raises alarm bells for any awards watcher, especially with its starry cast and its strong pedigree behind the camera. Could it turn out to be this year’s “Vice”?

The upcoming film focuses on the downfall of Ailes following accusations of sexual harassment. Two-time Oscar nominee John Lithgow plays the disgraced Ailes. Oscar winner Charlize Theron (who also produces the film) portrays Fox personality Megyn Kelly. Oscar winner Nicole Kidman co-stars as her colleague Gretchen Carlson. And taking on the role of Fox media mogul Rupert Murdoch is Malcolm McDowell. The cast also includes big names like Margot Robbie, Allison Janney and Connie Britton.

If you have watched the 18th season of Fox’s reality-competition staple “Hell’s Kitchen” as intently as I have, you pretty much know who the likely two competitors facing off on Friday’s two-hour grand finale will be. Those who like their TV viewing the way they like their food– namely, unspoiled — Stop Right Here!

Otherwise, let it be known that rookie Mia Castro is the chef who will be competing against veteran chef Ariel Contreras-Fox for the executive chef position at Gordon Ramsay’s new restaurant in Las Vegas.

Happy 53rd birthday, Ben Stiller, on November 30, 2018! The successful comic actor is the son of comedy royalty — the legendary comedy team of Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, who regularly took young Ben to their sets, and he soaked up an earful about comic timing. Realizing early on that stand-up was not for him, he forged his own path. In 1986, he appeared on Broadway in the Tony Award-winning revival of John Guare‘s “The House of Blue Leaves.” Stiller then segued over to “Saturday Night Live” where he was hired as a writer and eventually a performer. He left after four episodes.

Ben Stiller Stands By Shaun White's 'Offensive' Tropic Thunder Halloween Costume
Ben Stiller thinks Shaun White‘s Halloween costume, which some have called “insensitive,” is worth defending.

The three-time Olympic gold medalist, 32, was slammed over the weekend by the Special Olympics for dressing up as Simple Jack, a character with a disability played by Ben Stiller, 52, in Tropic Thunder. White has since apologized to the Special Olympics and deleted the Instagram of his costume, but Stiller still felt compelled to come to his rescue.

In response to a Twitter user who joked that Tropic Thunder should be boycotted because of White’s actions, the Meet the Parents star responded, “Actually Tropic Thunder

‘Halloween’ Breaks Records, While ‘A Star Is Born’ Shows October Can Work for Box Office and Awards Play

‘Halloween’ Breaks Records, While ‘A Star Is Born’ Shows October Can Work for Box Office and Awards Play
In another hit from a very strong October, “Halloween” is the month’s second-best opening weekend ever. Its $77.5 million total is just a little below what “Venom” debuted to two weeks ago, at 10 times the budget.

Meanwhile, “A Star Is Born” became the second release this month to reach $200 million — a first for October. Only four films total have done this — “Meet the Parents,” “Gravity,” “Shark Tale,” and “The Martian” (at 2018 prices).

That puts October 2018 in the hunt for the best ever. The only thing holding it back is the bulk of the revenue comes from these three hits; beyond them, there isn’t a lot that’s doing strong business.

The 11th entry has the biggest start of any film in the four-decade “Halloween” franchise, and already has topped the grosses of all but three (adjusted). It will easily be the biggest other than John Carpenter’s 1978 original.

Robert De Niro Has Absolutely No Plans To Retire From Acting Anytime Soon (Exclusive)

A few days shy of his 75th birthday on Aug. 17, Robert De Niro hit the beach in Santa Monica, CA and took a dip in the Pacific. Though he’s marking his 50th year as a movie star, he’s never gone Hollywood — his hometown is where his heart is. "Hollywood is a place, an industry, and a state of mind," Robert has said. "But New York, New York is home." That’s where the most important people in his life are. "To me, family is everything," he shared. "My wife, Grace, my children, my grandkids [are] my entertainment, my art, my passion."

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ Box Office Looks Bright: How an Unconventional Comedy Was Built to Succeed

  • Indiewire
“Crazy Rich Asians” opened Wednesday on a wave of favorable reviews and Warner Bros. hype promoting its Asian stars and exotic Singapore setting. That’s the right focus for the first studio wide-release of a contemporary movie with an all-Asian cast since Disney’s “The Joy Luck Club” 25 years ago.

The midweek opening of $5 million is on par with expectations. It falls below the (adjusted) $8 million Warners’ family comedy “We’re the Millers,” which also opened on an August Wednesday in 2013. That film wound up with $44 million and a $177 million total. This mid-week opening (with no prior night previews) is meant to fuel word of mouth into the weekend. The film’s A Cinemascore suggests the studio made the right move.

This isn’t a high-risk project that otherwise breaks new ground. The film is mainstream commercial, and producers Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson won the bidding for the project
