HBO Wants More Seasons of "Silicon Valley," but Mike Judge Might Be Ready to End It

HBO Wants More Seasons of
The restless entrepreneurs behind Pied Piper on HBO’s “Silicon Valley” have at least one more season of adventure around the corner, but after that, show creator Mike Judge might be ready to move on. “I think HBO is interested in more, if we come up with ideas that would turn it into something longer,” Judge said in an interview with IndieWire in Austin, a week after starting the writing process on Season 6. “But we also don’t want to run it into the ground.”

Judge has said before that he has an ending in mind for the antics of his wayward techies, but as the show prepares for its latest installments, the idea may soon come to fruition. “It’s feeling that way,” he said. “We just started writing the new season so we’re going to wait and see, make that decision after we’ve gotten a little way into it.

Peter Dinklage and Josh Brolin are Brothers in New Comedy

Kirsten Howard Mar 1, 2019

This sounds fun, but...it's from the writer of Holmes and Watson.

It seems Etan Cohen, the man behind last year's critically-savaged Holmes And Watson, didn't fail hard enough with that Razzie-scooper. The film, which reunited the Step Brothers duo of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, technically kinda broke even, but with marketing factored in, it was a collar-heater overall for Sony.

Cohen's new script, Brothers, was recently the central prize of a bidding war that ended in Legendary's favor, and now it has two tantalizing actors attached in the pairing of Infinity War's Thanos and Eitri the Dwarf King, aka Josh Brolin and Peter Dinklage. We didn't see the two have to deal with each other on screen in that film, but we will in Brothers, and the basic idea of seeing them together playing siblings does sound like a whole ton of fun, but

Zombieland: Double Tap Just Added Another Major Star

Zombieland: Double Tap makes another noteworthy addition to what was already looking like an impressive cast, with Variety reporting that Luke Wilson has joined the line-up for the upcoming sequel to 2009’s Zombieland.

The star of Idiocracy and The Royal Tenenbaums will feature in an unnamed role opposite returning players Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin, as well as fellow series newcomers Rosario Dawson, Thomas Middleditch and Zoey Deutch.

With Double Tap currently in production, the casting announcements have been coming thick and fast, and while we haven’t been hearing quite so much on the plot front, recent reports indicate that the sequel will see the cast of the first movie living in the White House, before embarking on an adventure that will introduce some new types of zombies that have managed to evolve over the years. Along the way, the gang will apparently cross paths

‘Holmes & Watson’ Review: No, Sh-t Sherlock

‘Holmes & Watson’ Review: No, Sh-t Sherlock
Remember that scene in Step Brothers, when a sleepwalking Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly end up wrecking their parents’ kitchen? My god, that was hilarious. What about that part in Talladega Nights, when Ferrell’s Nascar champion and his best friend/sidekick say grace at the dinner table (“Dear Tiny Jesus, your golden fleece diapers and tiny little balled-up fists …”)? So riotous. Or how about any random scene from, say, Anchorman or Walk Hard? You can’t go wrong with the former’s “Afternoon Delight” sing-along, or anything in

‘Holmes & Watson’ Review: Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly Fail to Solve an Unfunny Script

‘Holmes & Watson’ Review: Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly Fail to Solve an Unfunny Script
Ten years after “Step Brothers” was gifted unto humanity — and at least five since the world rightfully came to recognize that film as the Dadaist masterpiece that it is — Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have re-teamed for a comedy that’s somehow even dumber than the one that first galvanized their incredible chemistry. That should have been a good thing. It isn’t.

The trouble with “Holmes & Watson,” a witless Sherlock Holmes spoof that supplies fewer laughs in its entirety than “Step Brothers” does in its deleted scenes, is that the movie can never decide how dumb it wants to be. Or, more accurately, what kind of dumb it wants to be.

Re-imagining fiction’s greatest detective as the kind of world-class egoist that Ferrell could play in his sleep (he’s basically Ron Burgundy with a magnifying glass), this new spin on the public domain’s most

‘Holmes and Watson’ Trailer: Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly Just Became Best Friends (Again) — Watch
Did Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly just become best friends (again?) Yup. The “Step Brothers” and “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” co-stars are at it again in “Holmes and Watson,” which deductive reasoners will quickly identify as a new take on the Sherlock Holmes mythos; Ferrell plays the detective, with Reilly as his trusted sidekick. Watch the first trailer below.

Ferrell’s portrayal is preceded by those of John Barrymore, Christopher Lee, Robert Downey Jr., and Ian McKellen, among many others. His latest case is of the comic variety, with the two funny men embarrassing themselves in front of the Queen, tricking each other with such masterful disguises as a mustache, and firing pistols at the bees they just accidentally released themselves; all the while, Ralph Fiennes is plotting to kill Her Majesty.

Among its other merits, this may be the first Sherlock Holmes movie in which someone actually says,

Danny McBride Holds Rosemarie DeWitt Hostage in First Trailer for ‘Arizona’

Premiering at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year was the directorial debut of Vice Principals producer Jonathan Watson, which, of course, reunited him with Danny McBride. Arizona follows his character in the late aughts housing crisis as he fights back in violent ways against losing his house. His victim is a single mom played by Rosemarie DeWitt, who is having financial problems of her own. Ahead of a release next week, the first trailer has now arrived.

Dan Mecca said in his review from Sundance, “Written by Luke Del Tredici, what starts as a dark screwball comedy morphs into something nasty. The comedy soon becomes secondary to the violence. And while this is clearly the intention, Arizona never becomes as engaging as a thriller as its premise might suggest. The setting speaks to something socially while the content says nothing much.”

First trailer for Arizona starring Danny McBride, Rosemarie DeWitt and Luke Wilson

With a little over a week to go until its release, the first trailer has arrived online for the upcoming comedy thriller Arizona. Directed by Jonathan Watson, the film stars Danny McBride, Rosemarie DeWitt, Luke Wilson, Kaitlin Olson, Elizabeth Gillies, Lolli Sorenson, and David Alan Grier; check it out here…

Cassie is a real estate agent and single mom struggling to keep it all together during the housing crisis of 2009. Her problems go from bad to worse when disgruntled client Sonny violently confronts Cassie’s boss and then kidnaps Cassie – making one outrageously bad, and bloody, decision after another. Things completely spiral out of control in this explosive action comedy, also starring Luke Wilson (Idiocracy), Kaitlin Olson (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”), David Alan Grier (“The Carmichael Show”) and Elizabeth Gillies (“Dynasty”).

Arizona is set for release on August 24th.

Arizona Trailer Turns Danny McBride Into a Bloodthirsty Maniac

Arizona Trailer Turns Danny McBride Into a Bloodthirsty Maniac
The first trailer for Arizona has arrived. Danny McBride is primarily known for his comedy exploits in movies like Pineapple Express and on the small screen in shows like Eastbound and Down. However, he's been dipping his toes in the horror genre a bit more in recent years, having starred in Alien: Covenant last year, in addition to co-writing the upcoming Halloween movie. Now, the trailer for Arizona showcases a pretty shocking blend of his unique talents.

Things get dark pretty quickly in the footage. Danny McBride provides some angry voiceover, relating to his frustrations that stemmed from the housing crisis in 2009. He has kidnapped his real estate agent and, as we soon come to realize, his character isn't exactly the most intelligent guy. He's clearly not used to dealing with crimes such as these. Even though much of this is intended to be humorous, it's all very messed up.

First Look at Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as Holmes and Watson

First Look at Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as Holmes and Watson
The first photograph of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as Holmes & Watson has just been unveiled and it looks like a very polite version of Step Brothers. The upcoming comedy-mystery features Ferrell and Reilly taking on the iconic roles of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, which is sure to gain some huge laughs. Just looking at the first image of the seemingly unstoppable comedic duo is enough to get one excited for the release of the film at the end of the year.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are back at it with Holmes and Watson, but this time, they don't have Adam McKay with them like they did on Step Brothers and Talladega Nights. Instead, they're working with Etan Cohen, whose screenplay credits include Idiocracy, Tropic Thunder, and Get Hard. Cohen has been attached to the film since 2008, which is when it was officially announced. However,

Film Review: ‘Revengeance’

Film Review: ‘Revengeance’
Drawing a cartoon feature by hand, frame by frame, used to be the only way to make one. But with the rise of computer imagery, it didn’t take long for hand-drawn animation to become a highly specialized pursuit. At the megaplex, hand-drawn animation has officially gone the way of the dodo bird, but it still pops up in the indie world, where hand-drawn features are now artisanal curiosities. That’s part of the fun of going to them.

The veteran animator Bill Plympton, born in 1946, is a religious believer in the form. He has never stopped animating by hand — and more than that, in the six features he has made, he insists on drawing each and every frame himself. Now that’s devotion, if not obsession.

“Revengeance” marks the first time that Plympton has shared the director credit on a feature, and the film doesn’t have Plympton’s

‘Sorry to Bother You’ Kicks Off Summer of Socially Conscious Black Films

‘Sorry to Bother You’ Kicks Off Summer of Socially Conscious Black Films
Summer movies are synonymous with escapism. They tend to focus on costumed heroes or marauding dinosaurs. But is it possible for these beach weather offerings to be both entertaining and socially conscious? This year, the answer is yes, as a string of critically acclaimed festival darlings with searing commentaries on race relations, corporate greed and police brutality are about to hit theaters.

The first, “Sorry to Bother You,” from Oakland rapper and activist Boots Riley, opens Friday in limited release before expanding wider the following week.

First-time feature director Riley says his absurdist workplace satire, which has been compared to “Idiocracy,” is intended to represent the angst of the working class amid the backdrop of an increasingly corporatized world. It’s also an invitation to think more deeply about inequality and hopes to inspire viewers to take action, he says.

Sorry to Bother You” follows the story of Cassius Green

The guy that brought us Beavis and Butt-Head is giving viewers the chance to dance their way out of their constrictions and prove we are one nation under a groove. The trailer promises the series will change genres, and offers up a little Rick James "Mary Jane" warnings to the mass transit appeal. It appears Arkansas was very serious about keeping heads straight.

If you’re not a country music fan, Mike Judge’s Tales From The Tour Bus might make you one

Mike Judge has long established himself as a gifted storyteller, from backyard tales of King Of The Hill to the dystopian stupidity of Idiocracy to a bunch of too-smart-for-their own-good developers in Silicon Valley.
