Blockers – Review

As Spring break finally starts to wind down, the multiplex offers an R-rated for raunchy oasis amidst the battling ‘bots and silent scary stories. It ‘s been six weeks since the wild antics of Game Night and four weeks for that bucks and bullets romp Gringo. This week’s flick is unique since it concerns both adults and their kids, a twist on the Neighbors movies which had a young married couple squaring off against some rowdy college students. Now, these parents are a bit older than Seth and Rose (who had toddlers), since they have kids about to graduate high school. Oh, and their kids are actually young women, maturing way too fast for their folks. That’s one of the reasons these three parents decide to become Blockers.

Through a cell phone’s camera we first meet sweet little Julie as she looks sadly into the lens. It

Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm And Jeremy Renner Play A Game of Tag

This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming…and he’s ready.

Netflix’s ‘6 Balloons’ Trailer: Abbi Jacobson is Desperate to Help Her Drug-Addicted Brother, Dave Franco — Exclusive

Netflix’s ‘6 Balloons’ Trailer: Abbi Jacobson is Desperate to Help Her Drug-Addicted Brother, Dave Franco — Exclusive
Abbi Jacobson has lately spent off-weeks from Comedy Central’s “Broad City” giving dramatic, festival-friendly performances. Last year she co-starred in the Sundance premiere “Person to Person” alongside Michael Cera and Tavi Gevinson. This week she was at SXSW for the debut screening of “6 Balloons,” a forthcoming Netflix feature from writer-director Marja-Lewis Ryan.

While organizing a surprise party for her boyfriend, Katie (Jacobson) discovers that her brother Seth (Dave Franco) has relapsed on heroin. After she’s unable to place him at a local rehab facility, Katie spends an agonizing night watching and distracting his young daughter, as Seth tags along with worsening withdrawal. Seven-time Emmy nominee Jane Kaczmarek plays their mother. The actors were cast in October 2016.

Franco previously brought “21 Jump Street,” “Neighbors,” and “The Disaster Artist” to SXSW, where Netflix is currently presenting five titles. His “6 Balloons” turn is inspired by real-life experiences of the film’s co-producer,

How ‘Blockers’ Brings a Feminist Twist to the Prom Sex Comedy

How ‘Blockers’ Brings a Feminist Twist to the Prom Sex Comedy
After launching “21 Jump Street,” “Neighbors” and “Trainwreck,” South by Southwest has a proven track record for catapulting studio comedies into the mainstream. And now, it looks like the Austin festival has another hit on its hands. “Blockers,” a sweet and raunchy coming-of-age story, played through the roof at the Paramount Theater on Saturday night, met with spontaneous laughter and cheers. Judging by the strong reviews, Universal Pictures can probably count on a box-office home run when the movie opens on April 6.

“Blockers” is like “American Pie” meets “Bridesmaids.” It follows a group of three teenagers (played by the winning Geraldine Viswanathan, Kathryn Newton and Gideon Adlon), who make a pact to lose their virginity on prom night. This isn’t a unique premise. But it’s never been told from high school girls’ point of view with a female director behind the camera. And the story doesn’t focus

‘Blockers’ Director Kay Cannon at SXSW: ‘I am a Woman, I Directed Something, and It’s Rated R!’

SXSW has gained a reputation for premiering R-rated comedies that go on to earn $100 million or more at the domestic box office, but this year’s prospect, “Blockers,” is the first from a female director.

“I’m so happy to be here and I am a woman,” Kay Cannon informed the Paramount Theatre crowd immediately before Saturday night’s premiere. “I directed something. And it’s rated R! And a comedy! And it’s soon-to-be released. I feel pretty good about that.” A former “30 Rock” writer, Cannon also wrote or co-wrote the “Pitch Perfect” trilogy and created Netflix’s now-canceled “Girlboss.”

‘Blockers’ Review: Goofy Sex Comedy Is a Woke ‘American Pie’ For a New Generation — SXSW 2018
Even before it premiered to a boisterous reception at the SXSW Film Festival, “Blockers” was already famous from its red band trailer as that movie where John Cena funnels beer into his anus. That’s one of the more outrageous gags in director Kay Cannon’s inspired sex comedy, but it’s hardly the only one that hits its mark. Cannon’s directorial debut joins “Neighbors,” “Superbad” and “Old School” as an inspired party movie that merges juvenile humor with genuine observations about the gap between teen mayhem and adult responsibilities. Cannon gives equal footing to the sexual aims of its young protagonists attempting to lose their virginity on prom night and the nervous parents keen on stopping them. The difference here is that women rule the show, resulting in a woke “American Pie” for the text message age.

12 Buzziest Movies and TV Shows at SXSW 2018

  • Variety - Film News
South by Southwest kicks off this weekend, offering thousands of fans (and journalists) an early glimpse of the latest in studio movies, independent films, and TV shows. In recent years, the gathering in Austin, Texas, has continued to cement its status as the festival du jour for the spring — last year, there was “Baby Driver,” “Atomic Blonde,” and “The Disaster Artist.” And of course, in 2012, Lena Dunham arrived at the fest to preview the first episodes of “Girls.”

As for smaller movies, expect SXSW to continue the conversation about women in Hollywood that transformed awards season. A staggering eight out of 10 of the films in this year’s narrative competition are from female directors. “It is unprecedented,” said Janet Pierson, the head of SXSW Film. “We are excited about it. People ask me if it’s intentional. It wasn’t; we were trying to go for parity. It’s definitely

Metallica’s James Hetfield Joins Ted Bundy Movie Extremely Wicked

In the latest bit of casting news for Ted Bundy thriller Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile, Metallica singer James Hetfield has signed on. It’s not too unusual for any given movie to have a casting choice that kind of comes out of nowhere. After all, many actors like to stretch the limits of their abilities or try to change their general public perception by playing against their usual type. That seems to be the case for Zac Efron, who is looking to pivot away from his comedic roles in films like Neighbors and Baywatch by playing infamous serial killer Ted Bundy in Extremely Wicked.

Ted Bundy Meets His Girlfriend In New Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile Photo

Zac Efron might not be what you’d call an Oscar caliber actor, but the former High School Musical star is definitely working hard lately to reinvent himself in Hollywood and become a bonafide leading man. In recent years, he’s delivered some impressive performances in films like Neighbors and its equally enjoyable sequel, among others. And while his movies aren’t always hits critically or commercially, he has shown real growth as an actor since first breaking onto the scene.

Now, after dabbling in R-rated humor and shenanigans, it looks like Efron is finally ready to try his hand at something a bit darker and more serious, as he’s all set to star in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, Joe Berlinger’s psychological thriller about serial killer Ted Bundy.
