Sony Pictures has released a new, full-length The Interview red-band trailer for the upcoming comedy, and it’s kind of fantastic.  The film marks the directorial follow-up of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg after the excellent This Is the End and sees James Franco playing a popular entertainment news interviewer who, along with his producer (Rogen), is tasked with assassinating Kim Jong Un in North Korea.  While the first trailer was just a taste of what we could expect from the pic, this new one dives deep into the plot while also revealing a bevy of wonderful cameos from the likes of Rob Lowe, Timothy Simons (Veep), and Anders Holm (Workaholics).  Not only does the movie look incredibly funny (and filthy), but the prospect of Lizzy Caplan as a CIA agent is highly promising.

Watch the new The Interview red-band trailer after the jump.  The film opens in theaters on December 25th.

We rarely get R-rated animated films, and while that’s a shame, it’s also understandable.  In addition to the genre always being considered as something for kids, the cost of animation also means it needs to bring in the widest audience possible, i.e. families.  But the upcoming animated comedy Sausage Party sounds like it will be anything but family-friendly.  Written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and directed by Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2) and Greg Tiernan, the story follows a group of supermarket foods trying to get back on their shelves before the biggest shopping day of the year, the 4th of July.  Their Lord of the Rings-type quest has them considering the great beyond, the meaning of their existence, and trying to fuck buns.

During the press day for Neighbors, Steve spoke with Goldberg and executive producer James Weaver about Sausage Party, and learned that their movie isn’t just coasting on being animated and R-rated.  It has a very specific target: Pixar and Disney movies.  Hit the jump to learn more about the film including details about the plot, the characters, and more.  The film is due out in 2015 and features the voices of Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Michael Cera, Edward Norton, David Krumholtz, Anders Holm, and Salma Hayek.

Workaholics Adam Devine Blake Anderson Anders Holm Kyle Newacheck

Comedy Central’s hit single-camera comedy series Workaholics, recently renewed for Seasons 4 and 5, tells the story of three friends who live, work and party together 24/7.  Even though they sometimes do their jobs well, they’re more concerned with sleeping in, getting drunk and partying like there’s no tomorrow.

During this exclusive interview with Collider, while they were at the Comedy Central portion of the TCA Press Tour, creator/actors Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck (who also directs the show) talked about how surreal the success of the show is, that they always had the goal of doing a TV show but that there were several attempts that fell through, the moment they realized just how many people were actually watching the show, and what fans can expect from the all-new episodes they have airing on Wednesday nights.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.

It’s strange to think that the same show that was cancelled for a lack of viewers six years ago is now having to field eager paparazzi interested in snapping shots of the actors on set.  Nevertheless, the first images from the set of the fourth season of Arrested Development have hit the interwebs.  They’re not much, but for those of us obsessed with finding out what the Bluth family has been up to all this time, shots of David Cross characteristically wrapped up in a body sheet are pretty damn tantalizing.  Moreover, it looks like Workaholics stars Blake Anderson, Adam DeVine and Anders Holm make an appearance in an early episode.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  Cross, Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale, Jessica Walter and Jeffrey Tambor all return for the new season of Arrested Development, which will premiere on Netflix sometime next year.

Comedy Central Orders Third Season of WORKAHOLICS

by     Posted 3 years, 30 days ago

Comedy Central announced today a pre-emptive order for yet another season of Workaholics, the hilarious new comedy series currently in the middle of its second season. A surprisingly funny, and outrageous comedy series, this is one of my favorite new series that seems to be gaining a lot of ground with viewers. Complete with 90′s pop culture references, reckless behavior, ridiculous mishaps and a fantastic trio of main characters composed of Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm, Workaholics is easily one of the best original series Comedy Central has had in awhile. Kent Alterman, head of original programming and production at Comedy Central says, “We feel like the show is one, big public service announcement, teaching the youth of America how to engage with the workplace.” Offices would be much more interesting with this trio around, and a third season is just want the doctor ordered.
