‘After Party’ Star and Rapper Kyle Wants All Hip-Hop Artists to Make Movies

Rapper Kyle’s role in Netflix’s “The After Party” may be his first foray into film, but the world of a young hip-hop artist desperate to break into the music industry was all too familiar to him.

“This is a movie that I wish I had when I was 17 years old,” the musician told Variety at the film’s premiere at the ArcLight Hollywood on Wednesday. “I needed to see it in real life. I needed to see what I was trying to accomplish in a film that’s so descriptive, so accurate to the story of being a rapper.”

In the musical comedy produced by Live Nation Productions, Kyle plays Owen, an up-and-coming rapper whose career prospects couldn’t be more bleak — until video of him projectile vomiting on Wiz Khalifa goes viral on social media.

10 Things Seth Rogen Revealed About Pineapple Express

10 Things Seth Rogen Revealed About Pineapple Express
We're big fans of Pineapple Express, the modestly budgeted action comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, which grossed over $100 million in 2008. Conceived by Rogen, his writing partner Evan Goldberg and producer Judd Apatow, Pineapple Express is incredibly quotable and endlessly re-watchable, with a standout supporting turn by Danny McBride. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the stoner classic, Seth took to Twitter and unleashed some Wikipedia-smashing bits of trivia. Here we'll take a look at 10 things Seth Rogen revealed about Pineapple Express.

Crossing Guards

Many filmmakers draw on their real life experience to add authenticity to their productions, whether it's a twist of phrase from a specific region, certain wardrobe choices, the set decoration, or the difference between which weapons a character might use.

Movie Review – The Package (2018)

The Package, 2018.

Directed by Jake Szymanski.

Starring Daniel Doheny, Sadie Calvano, Geraldine Viswanathan, Luke Spencer Roberts, and Eduardo Franco.

Synopsis:

When a group of teenage friends go on a spring break camping trip, an unfortunate accident sets off a race against time to save their friend’s most prized possession.

Though Netflix’s Originals line-up is often (correctly) derided for serving as a dumping ground for uninspired genre fare a conventional studio wouldn’t touch, The Package deserves at least some credit for being decidedly more demented than your typical R-rated teen comedy.

From director Jake Szymanski (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates) and produced by both Ben Stiller and Workaholics stars Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck, this middling yet fitfully amusing romp further confirms the quartet’s obsession with genital mutilation humour.
