Metallica’s James Hetfield Starring in Ted Bundy Film ‘Extremely Wicked’!
Aside from voicing characters on shows like “The Simpsons,” “Metalocalypse” and “American Dad,” Metallica lead singer James Hetfield hasn’t done much acting over the years, so you might be surprised to hear that he’s going to be in the upcoming Zac Efron-starring Ted Bundy film, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile. Via Deadline, Hetfield will play Officer […]

10 Animated Shows Parents Thought Were For Kids

Animation may generally be considered a medium for children but we all know, hopefully, that those days are long behind us. There are plenty of adult appropriate animated shows out there and they embrace the fact that they can get away with so much more. Many of these shows have violence, suggestive content or more, substance usage, racism and so much more crude humor that kids should just be nowhere near it. There’s also the case of Spongebob Squarepants, which actually had a scientific paper published against it illustrating how damaging the show can be for a young child’s mind. Yikes! Some shows aren’t that bad and likely had a whole generation growing up with them, such as The Simpsons and Family Guy. Both have some pretty mature subject matter in them, with the latter being edgier in its content, but both are lighter than some of

Rumor: Tom Holland’s Spider-Man To Cameo In Venom

Ever since Sony announced their Tom Hardy-starring Venom movie, fans have been wondering what (if any) connection it would have to Spider-Man. While I suppose a completely disconnected film might work, the foundation of Venom’s character is his hatred for the webslinger – stemming from Peter Parker’s rejection of the symbiote after he realized it was trying to permanently bond with his body. Though both Sony and Marvel have denied any chance of Spidey swinging by for a cameo, a source is now saying that “he knows” Tom Holland is going to appear in Venom.

Said source is writer/director Jon Schnepp, who’s directed Metalocalypse, The Venture Bros and the feature-length documentary about the aborted 1990s Tim Burton Superman project, The Death of “Superman Lives”: What Happened? His opinion on this comes via Collider Video Head of Development Kristian Harloff, who today Tweeted the following:

Exclusive Clip: Nerdland, How to Become Infamous

"Elliot, we've been idiots. We've been going about it all wrong." No, that's not deleted dialogue from E.T. The Extra Terrestrial -- that Elliott spells his name differently -- but instead fresh new dialogue, featured in our exclusive, Nsfw (not safe for work) clip from the animated film Nerdland. John (voiced by Paul Rudd) and Elliot (voiced by Patton Oswalt) want to become famous but, as John says, they haven't been paying sufficient attention to realize exactly how people become famous -- or infamous -- nowadays. That spurs them on to a series of misadventures. Andrew Kevin Walker (Seven, Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow) wrote the original script and Chris Prynoski (Metalocalypse, Son of Zorn) directed. Enjoy the clip below. Nerdland is now available to watch...

Animated film Nerdland starring Paul Rudd & Patton Oswalt gets new trailer

This shit looks amazing. I mean, it's like someone took a bunch of things I love, put it in a f*cked up blender, and splurted out something gross but tantalizing. Hailing from Titmouse studios (which brought us awesome Adult Swim shows like Metalocalypse and Venture Brothers) comes a story of two dim-witted thirty-year old Hollywood wannabes (voiced by Patton Oswalt and Paul Rudd)...

‘Nerdland’ Trailer: Paul Rudd and Patton Oswalt Want Fame at Any Cost in Raunchy Animated Comedy
Andrew Kevin Walker’s screenwriting credits include “Seven,” “Sleepy Hollow” and “8mm,” so of course it only makes sense he would return from his post-“Wolfman” hiatus with an animated comedy voiced by Paul Rudd and Patton Oswalt. “Nerdland,” which stars the two as besties about to turn 30 with little to show for it, has just released its first trailer. Watch it below and let the disenchantment wash over you in waves.

Nerdland Review [Tribeca 2016]

A wealth of comedic talent went into making Nerdland, the animated feature film from the creative team of director/producer Chris Prynoski and writer Andrew Kevin Walker.

Prynoski’s animation studio Titmouse, Inc. is the production company behind Adult Swim’s The Venture Brothers and Metalocalypse, so it’s no surprise he managed to collect comedians as talented and disparate as Patton Oswalt, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, Ron Lynch, Mike Judge and Hannibal Buress to lend their voices to his first animated feature. So, it’s a shame – a painful, crying shame – then that such talent should be squandered on such a hapless piece of bad-humored social commentary.

Nerdland tells the painfully recognizable story of John (Rudd) and Elliot (Oswalt), two deluded slackers in Los Angeles whose dreams of stardom are continually cut short by their lack of discernible talent. They pretend to be dating Sally (Kate Micucci) and Linda

Tribeca Film Festival: Cartoons Get Dirty With Starry ‘Nerdland’

Tribeca Film Festival: Cartoons Get Dirty With Starry ‘Nerdland’
A month after “Sausage Party” made a raunchy splash at South by Southwest, the Tribeca Film Festival showcased its own adults-only animated film, “Nerdland.” The Hollywood-set black comedy opened the fetival’s Viewpoints section with a starry cast — including Paul Rudd, Patton Oswalt and Reid Scott (“Veep”) — and a lot of cartoon content that’s entirely inappropriate for Saturday morning TV.

Just how inappropriate? Here are just a few of the tongue-in-cheek depravities that you won’t want the kiddies to see:

Butt cheeks caressing a stripper pole. Lube. Anal beads. A blow-up sex doll. Exploding heads. A bit of graphic disembowelment. Oh, and lots and lots of bouncing breasts.

“Animators love animating boobs,” noted Chris Prynoski, the “Metalocalypse” veteran who directed “Nerdland,” speaking at the movie’s April 14 debut at New York’s Sva Theater.

“And anytime there’s a pair of underpants, you have to ask them to remove some of the soil,

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Nerdland’

Tribeca Film Review: ‘Nerdland’
The hunger for Hollywood fame gets profanely skewered by “Nerdland,” an orgy of animated R-rated raunch from Titmouse, Inc. (creators of TV’s “Motorcity,” “Metalocalypse” and “Superjail!”) and its head honcho, Chris Prynoski. With a scuzzy style to match its sleazeball vision of spotlight desperation and depravity, this Tinseltown satire — led by voice work from Paul Rudd and Patton Oswalt — revels in the foulness of 21st-century pop culture, albeit to a degree that’s ultimately both exhausting and redundant. Its extremeness should satisfy fans of the studio’s wild, rapid-fire comedy style, but broader theatrical prospects seem dim.

From garbage-strewn apartments to billboards covered in bird crap and overpasses populated by puking weirdos, “Nerdland” imagines L.A. as a festering sore overrun by star-seeking cretins. Two such vermin are roommates Elliot (Oswalt) and John (Rudd), the former a string-beany aspiring screenwriter who’s working on a vengeful Rip Van Winkle

Adult Swim Trolls Fan Petitions To Bring Back ‘Metalocalypse’

  • The Wrap
Be warned, Dethklok fans: Adult Swim has heard your cries, and their response is brutal. For the past two years, Brendon Small has been trying to get his gruesome animated comedy ‘Metalocalypse’ picked up for a fifth and final season. The series ended in a cliffhanger with the 2013 musical special, “The Doomstar Requiem,” which saw the dark prophecies surrounding the wildly popular but incompetent death metal band Dethklok finally come to life. With Charles Offdensen no longer their manager and Murderface corrupted by an evil force, Small had planned to wrap things up with six final episodes, including a series finale called “Army.

Enter The Filthy, Sinful Animated World Of 'Nerdland' With The New Red Band Trailer With Patton Oswalt & Paul Rudd

R-rated animated movies are going to be having a moment this year. Seth Rogen and co. already teased "Sausage Party" at SXSW (our review), and next month at Tribeca, audiences will get their first look at "Nerdland," which earns its adults-only stripes and then some.  Directed by Chris Prynoski ("Metalocalypse"), and featuring the voices of Paul Rudd, Patton Oswalt, Hannibal Buress, Riki Lindhome, Kate Micucci, Mike Judge, and Reid Scott, the story follows two L.A. dudes on the cusp of turning 30, who dream of fame. Here's the synopsis:  Aspiring actor John (Paul Rudd) and would-be screenwriter Elliot (Patton Oswalt) are two La dudes approaching their 30th birthdays without yet becoming the megawatt superstars they know they were meant to be. In a town built on who you know (and who knows you), the ambitious duo will set out on an all-day journey through their all-star rolodexes to make it

Metalocalypse: Show Creator Campaigns for Series Finale

Though it's been two years since the last episode of Adult Swim's cult favorite series Metalocalypse aired, the fate of Dethklok is not yet death.

This month, at New York's Comic-Con, show creator Brendon Small announced "Metalocalypse Now"—a month-long online campaign geared towards getting a series finale. Through signing the online petition or using social media, fans can "demand" a finale for the show about the crazy hijinks and killer tunes of black metal band Dethklok.

Metalocalypse debuted on Adult Swim in 2006 and ran for four seasons in addition to one hour-long special in 2013 and four companion albums of original music.

According to the site, the ultimate aim of the campaign is to convince Adult Swim and streaming site Hulu that there are enough fans to justify producing a final episode.

Watch: First 10 Minutes of 'The Death of 'Superman Lives'' As Movie is Released Exclusively Online

Everything I know about Tim Burton's failed 1998 superhero film Superman Lives I've learned from Kevin Smith's great recollection in An Evening with Kevin Smith. Starring Nicolas Cage as the titular protagonist, kooky producer Jon Peters guiding it as long as he could and possibly hosting a giant spider in the third act, this would have been not only a wildly different take on the iconic Man of Steel but vastly eccentric from anything produced in the superhero genre then-or-now. Smith can only give one man's account, though, and like any movie there are more than a handful of people who need to come together to make it happen. To writer/director Jon Schnepp's credit, the filmmaker rounded up as many of those people as he could and successfully made a movie about one that failed to do so entirely. The film in question, The Death of "Superman

‘The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?’ to debut at McM London Comic Con

It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s the European debut of The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? Director Jon Schnepp is to attend May’s McM London Comic Con to screen his much-anticipated Superman movie documentary, meet fans and sign autographs.

The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? delves into one of Hollywood’s most enthralling ‘what might have been’ stories. In 1996, Warner Brothers engaged Kevin Smith to write the screenplay of Superman Lives. Director Tim Burton assembled an elite group of artists to work on the movie, including Nicolas Cage as Superman. But Warner Brothers scrapped the project shortly before principal photography began.

Written and directed by Jon Schnepp (Metalocalypse), The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? gives us an enthralling inside look into what would have been the most original, unexpected and cosmic Superman movie ever made. The film features interviews with director Tim Burton

‘Death of Superman Lives’ Trailer: Tim Burton Would Have ‘Knocked It Out of the Park’ (Video)

If you’ve ever wondered what could have been had Warner Bros. followed through on a Superman movie directed by Tim Burton and starring Nicolas Cage, then you’ll want to watch “The Death of ‘Superman Lives': What Happened?” when the documentary gets its limited release on May 1. A new trailer for the film directed by Jon Schnepp (“Metalocalypse”) teases interviews with Burton, himself, as well as screenwriter Dan Gilroy (“Nightcrawler”). “Tim is really — I gotta be honest — one of the only people who could really do it justice, because he understands it. He’s lived it,” Gilroy says. “Man,
