A new season of Jerry Seinfeld’s excellent web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee will debut this summer, and a trailer for the upcoming episodes has now landed online.  For those unfamiliar with the series, it’s essentially Seinfeld’s version of a talk show with each episode featuring a new interview with a fellow comedian.  The loose nature of the series makes for both insightful and extremely funny installments, and this new trailer shows that season four participants will include Jon Stewart, Aziz Ansari, George Wallace, Robert Klein, and Sarah Jessica Parker.  The trailer also features a really funny button involving Wallace.  As a big fan of the show, I’m looking forward to checking out the new episodes.

Jimmy Fallon engendered a lot of good will during his time hosting Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and it looks like that will carry over to his new gig hosting The Tonight Show.  It feels like a fresh start that has a good chance of luring a younger audience, or at least an audience that will likely tune in to check out clips the following morning.  For example, during last night’s show, Fallon was welcomed by a string of cameos including Robert De Niro, Tina Fey, Seth Rogen, and most notably, Joan Rivers, who was banned by Johnny Carson from The Tonight Show in 1986.  Fallon also had a fun bit where he and Will Smith showed off the Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing.

NEW YEAR’S EVE Blu-ray Review

by     Posted 2 years, 5 days ago

new-years-eve-blu-ray-slice

Emboldened by the success of Valentine’s Day, Garry Marshall took another crack at the holiday-based all-star anthology in 2011, with similarly repulsive results. This time, though, movie-goers commendably ignored him (and hopefully quashed plans for Columbus Day or whatever the hell was coming next). Of course, it’s never a good idea to interpret the commercial failure of a terrible movie as anything more than an aberration. But in this case, there was an encouraging sense that the world had finally revolted against a sub-genre populated by cynical, bald-faced cash-grabs.

And indeed, New Year’s Eve is the romantic comedy distilled to its basest form; a film that trots out a dizzying array of A-listers and expects applause, while abandoning time-consuming chores like character, story and dialogue. Hit the jump for the full review.

PSA Sunday: This Memorial Day, Celebrities Got Your 6

by     Posted 2 years, 64 days ago

psa-sunday-got-your-6

Memorial Day is a holiday meant to honor the American soldiers who lost their lives in military service and to remind us all of their sacrifice.  Some Hollywood A-listers thought that the best way to show their support would be to literally turn their backs on them.  In this misguided attempt at drumming up awareness and support for veterans returning home and looking for jobs, celebrities such as Tom Hanks, Michael Douglas, Milla Jovovich and Bradley Cooper put their backs to the camera while talking to our nation’s service men and women.  I’m not blaming the celebrities for going along with this ridiculous gimmick, but rather the person who thought “I’ve got your six,” is an acceptable tagline while overlooking the metaphor of “turning your back on someone.”  The message is great, one that we should all remember, this weekend and every weekend; it’s just the delivery that’s unintentionally silly and borders on insulting.  Hit the jump to check it out.

Fox’s Fall 2012 Schedule: GLEE Moves to Thursdays; Mindy Kaling’s New Series Joins NEW GIRL and RAISING HOPE on Tuesdays for Comedy Block

Yesterday we got a look at what NBC will be offering by way of scheduling and new series this fall, and now Fox has announced their upcoming 2012 schedule.  As far as shifts for returning series go, the Kiefer Sutherland drama Touch has been moved to Fridays, while Ryan Murphy’s Glee (which has been on a ratings downslide as of late) has been put in the post-X Factor/American Idol slot on Thursday nights.  Moreover, the network announced that Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson will be doing guest star arcs on Glee for the show’s upcoming fourth season.

As far as new shows go, The Office star Mindy Kaling’s new show, currently titled The Mindy Project (hopefully a temporary title), and the new ensemble comedy Ben and Kate will join Raising Hope and the hit Zooey Deschanel series New Girl on Tuesdays for an all-comedy night.  I’m a huge fan of New Girl and I’m hoping The Mindy Project will be a nice companion show.  Another high profile new series, Kevin Williamson’s serial killer show The Following starring Kevin Bacon, has been slated to premiere at midseason.  Hit the jump to get a look at the full Fox schedule.

Brendan Fraser, Kiefer Sutherland, and Eva Longoria Join Sarah Jessica Parker in MARRIED AND CHEATING

by     Posted 2 years, 82 days ago

married and cheating brendan-fraser-kiefer-sutherland-eva-longoria

We first heard about Married and Cheating last year, when Sarah Jessica Parker and Marissa Tomei were attached to star.  It’s taken a year or so for the rest of the cast to come together, but the project from writer/director Raymond De Felitta (City Island) is finally gaining traction.  Variety reports Parker is still on board to star opposite Brendan Fraser, while Kiefer Sutherland and Eva Longoria are in talks to join the cast. The story follows three couples who deal with “infidelity, deceit, and confusion.”  There is still room in the three couples for another female lead, but since the report does not mention Tomei, I bet she moved on.

Felitta will shoot Married and Cheating this summer for Magnet Media.  This is the first of six $10-$50 million productions financed through a $190 million fund set up by Magnet’s German arm. Michael London, Lauren Versel, and Janice Williams are producing along with Magnet’s Jeannette Buerling and Michelle Ohayon.

Amanda Seyfried Strips Down for LOVELACE Poster

by     Posted 2 years, 90 days ago

amanda-seyfried-lovelace-poster-slice

It’s been a little while since we had a porn star update, so here’s a new poster featuring Linda Lovelace.  Technically, it’s Amanda Seyfried portraying Linda Lovelace in this new poster for the indie biopic, Lovelace.  Splitting hairs.  It’s not as provocative as you might expect, but I’m reserving some hope that, as the movie gets closer to release (unexpected pun!), the material gets more and more risque.  If that wasn’t the plan, it’s something the Lovelace marketing team might want to consider.

Then again, it’s not all about the sex appeal, since a good portion of Lovelace deals with the abusive relationship between the porn star and her husband, Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard).  You can take a look at previously released images, set photos and posters here.  Lovelace also stars Sharon Stone, Adam Brody, Chloe Sevigny, Juno Temple, Sarah Jessica Parker, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, and James Franco.  Hit the jump to see the new poster.

Sarah Jessica Parker Replaces Demi Moore as Gloria Steinem in LOVELACE

by     Posted 2 years, 185 days ago

Just a few days ago, Demi Moore was forced to drop out of her cameo role as Gloria Steinem in the biopic Lovelace. Now it appears producers have settled on a replacement, as EW reports that Sarah Jessica Parker will now take over the Steinem role. The film stars Amanda Seyfried as the titular Linda Lovelace and chronicles the actress’ rise to fame following Deep Throat. The film centers on Lovelace’s tempestuous relationship with her husband (Peter Sarsgaard), who she accused of coercing her into the profession.

I don’t necessarily think Parker is a fantastic choice to play the feminist icon, and I much preferred the rumored Mary-Louise Parker as Moore’s replacement. No matter, the role is ultimately a small one in the film. Steinem founded Ms. Magazine, which published an article entitled “The Real Linda Lovelace” that discussed Lovelace’s abusive relationship with her pornographer husband. The pic also stars Sharon Stone, Adam Brody, Chloe Sevigny, Juno Temple, and James Franco as Hugh Hefner. Lovelace is currently filming in Los Angeles.

New Posters for THE RUM DIARY and NEW YEAR’S EVE

by     Posted 2 years, 290 days ago

rum-diary-new-years-eve-posters-slice

New posters have been released for The Rum Diary and New Year’s Eve.  The former is kind of cute and almost makes the film look like a light comic spin on Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which is appropriate considering that Hunter S. Thompson was the author of both novels.  As for the New Year’s Eve poster, it perfectly encapsulates the cynical, greedy reason for the movie’s existence.  The point isn’t to convey a plot, but to jam as many stars into the film as possible in the hopes that you’ll like one or two of them enough to see the movie.  However, the stars you like will most likely be in the film for probably less than ten minutes total.  If you think watching a star you like play a poorly defined character is worth a dollar a minute, then you like wasting money.

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  The Rum Diary opens October 28th.  New Year’s Eve opens December 9th.

New Trailer for NEW YEAR’S EVE

by     Posted 2 years, 307 days ago

A new trailer for Garry Marshall’s star-studded New Year’s Eve has been released. This trailer isn’t much different from the first one in that it’s basically a montage of all the pretty celebrities and their separate stories set to pop music, though this new look does include inappropriate Abigail Breslin flashing. If you enjoyed Marshall’s Valentine’s Day, then you probably don’t need to be sold on the pseudo-sequel, and if the February-centered first film wasn’t your thing then this New Year’s Eve trailer is probably more than a little cringe-worthy. It looks like Seth Meyers may be the only saving grace for the brave boyfriends who are forced to soldier through this one.

The cast includes Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sarah Jessica Parker, Hilary Swank, Zac Efron, Sienna Miller, Lea Michele, Sofia Vergara, Abigail Breslin, Til Schweiger, Seth Meyers, Jon Bon Jovi, Josh Duhamel, and Carla Gugino. New Year’s Eve opens on December 9th. Hit the jump to watch the New Year’s Eve trailer.
