Danny McBride’s 1999 Student Film ‘Eddie Noble and the Heroes’ Offers a Preview of His Comic Genius — Watch

Danny McBride’s 1999 Student Film ‘Eddie Noble and the Heroes’ Offers a Preview of His Comic Genius — Watch
Before he was starring in movies like “Pineapple Express,” creating the series “Eastbound & Down” and “Vince Principals,” or writing a “Halloween” sequel, Danny McBride was a mere film student at the North Carolina School of the Arts. As his thesis, the funny man wrote and directed a short film called “Eddie Noble and the Heroes” — a 20-minute preview of his talents that, thanks to the wonders of the internet, you can watch below.

Far from what you’d expect of McBride, the film is like a childhood fantasia that begins onstage as a crowd of kiddos watches a troupe of theatrical superheroes. 10 years later, we see the effect this performance has had: Eddie and his friends are now would-be vigilantes attempting to keep their neighborhood save from evildoers. Very ’90s in both form and content, it brings to mind films like “Small Soldiers” and even “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

‘The Legacy Of A Whitetail Deer Hunter’: Jody Hill Drops His Nasty M.O. & Josh Brolin Shines [Review]

Over the course of two films and two successful HBO series, filmmaker Jody Hill has carved out a career as a provocateur centered on toxic narcissists, unchecked male ego and huge, mean-spirited jackasses. His work tends to draw admiration and ire in equal measure, as the lead characters of his stories are always aggressively unlikeable, pushing the boundary of just how much an audience can empathize with contemptible blowhards.

Jason Blum Has a Secret for Making Great Horror Films: Hire from TV

Jason Blum Has a Secret for Making Great Horror Films: Hire from TV
Jason Blum made his name in the movies, but he loves television. The Blumhouse founder loves television so much, he wishes he could be a showrunner.

“My wife is a writer, and I always say the one thing that I would aspire to more than anything else is the job of a showrunner,” Blum said in an interview with IndieWire. “The single most interesting job to me in Hollywood is a showrunner. The idea of creating a world, getting to see the world live and breath over multiple years — if you’re good at it — is fascinating.”

This admiration, in part, is why Blum respects television enough to know what separates it from film.

“It is different,” Blum said, ticking off divergent examples like TV’s “rhythm”, or how its time restrictions are really creative gifts in disguise (“parameters create better storytelling”), or even just the shooting style: “[TV] is shot

Jody Hill on ‘Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter’, Josh Brolin, and Looking Back on ‘Vice Principals’

It’s been almost a decade since filmmaker Jody Hill released a new film, but the guy has certainly been busy. After the success of 2009’s Observe & Report, Hill teamed up with Danny McBride to create the delightfully profane HBO comedy Eastbound & Down, and when that show ended in 2013, Hill and McBride teamed up to craft yet another HBO series in Vice Principals. But after shooting two seasons of Vice Principals back-to-back, Hill finally got behind the camera on a new feature film called The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter, which is available …

Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Certain Women (Kelly Reichardt)

The cinema of Kelly Reichardt lives in quiet, tender observations with deeply rooted characters and location. Even when adding a thriller element as with her last feature, the overlooked Night Moves, her style is never compromised. Her latest feature, Certain Women, is a loosely connected three-part drama adapted from the short stories of Maile Meloy. It’s perhaps the purest distillation of her sensibilities yet

Alien: Covenant star doesn’t know if a sequel will happen

The lead actress in Alien: Covenant has said that she has “no idea” if a sequel will happen.

Ridley Scott’s Alien franchise is in an uncertain spot right now. Alien: Covenant didn’t perform as expected at the box office, leading to reports that the franchise might not be moving forward at all.

Scott has talked about his ideas for a sequel in the past and with Covenant ending on somewhat of a cliffhanger involving Michael Fassbender’s character, David, there certainly seems like a story to tell.

One person who you would imagine knowing a little something about the series’ future is the star of Alien: Covenant Katherine Waterston. However, the actress has revealed that she is in the dark regarding a sequel.

“I have no idea. I always feel as though the actors are the last to know,” the actress told Metro when asked about a potential sequel.
