Dec/2018

I’m surprised this hasn’t happened sooner, but good news for everyone involved. Amazon is officially in business with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in bringing the hit comic book series ‘The Boys‘ to the TV Series realm. The comic book started in 2006 and was written by Garth Ennis (‘Preacher‘) and focused on a group of people known as ‘The Boys‘ who set out to take out corrupt superheroes who destroy the lives of many while trying to do their jobs.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Interesting news is afoot with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This is the End, Preacher). The writing/directing duo purchased the rights to the ‘Where’s Waldo‘ franchise back in 2011 and it looks like MGM is ready to greenlight a live action version of it. You remember ‘Where’s Waldo‘ – the guy in the striped wool hat that is dressed in red, white, and blue, with glasses that you spent hours looking for in many books. The screenplay is written by Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir, who according to Deadline have been taken under the wings of Goldberg and Rogen for some time now.

"This Is The End" At The 5th Annual Summer Of Sony

Sometimes an idea begins as a movie but seems better suited to a series order after working up the project for a bit, such is the case with ‘Future Man‘, a comedy from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, slated as a half-hour comedy picked up by Hulu. The pitch from Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir had a bit of a bidding war between networks of all shape and size was ultimately won over by Sony Pictures TV. Point Grey Pictures, Matt Tolmach Productions will be producing with Sony.

The new red band trailer for Seth Rogen’s new film ‘The Night Before‘ is fantastic. Rogen stars with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie who have been childhood friends. They annually re-convene every Christmas eve for a night of debauchery and decadence, however, since they are older now, this might be the last time they get to party, so they’re going to make this one count.

Steve Jobs is the topic of another biopic project. This time around Christian Bale is going to play the legendary genius opposite Seth Rogen’s Steve Wozniak. Bale and Rogen are shoring up a cast that will possibly include Jessica Chastain in an unspecified role.  Alone, Jobs and Wozniak were brilliant, but together the tech world would never be the same once they launch Apple. Writer Aaron Sorkin has adapted Walter Isaacson’s biography, ‘Steve Jobs‘ for Sony. Oscar-Winning director Danny Boyle (‘Trainspotting‘, ‘Slumdog Millionaire‘) is leading the life story. David Fincher was originally attached as director but his demands of a $10 Million salary and full creative control was not met by the studio.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

If I were to tell you that Seth Rogen and James Franco were making a movie where they are tasked with a mission from the United States to head to North Korea, track down Kim Jong-un, and kill him – would you jump up from your seat, throw your fist in the air, and scream ‘YES’? I know I did. That is in fact the storyline here with their new film ‘The Interview‘, which is from the makers of ‘Neighbors‘ and ‘This is The End‘. The trailer looks hilarious and is now at the top of my list of movies to see. And man, what a cool poster. Enjoy the trailer.

Blake Harris has a new novel dropping in May of this coming year entitled ‘Console War‘. Sony Pictures has already snapped up the feature rights from Atlantic Books. The behind-the-scenes business thriller that chronicles how Sega, a small, scrappy gaming company led by an unlikely visionary and a team of rebels, took on the juggernaut Nintendo and revolutionized the video game industry. Culminating in a David and Goliath face-off. The battle was vicious, relentless, and highly profitable, eventually sparking a global corporate war that would be fought on several fronts: from living rooms and schoolyards to boardrooms and Congress. It was a once-in-a-lifetime, no-holds-barred conflict that pitted brother against brother, kid against adult, Sonic against Mario, and the US against Japan.Atlantic will publish ‘Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo and the Battle that Defined a Generation’ in August.

There have been countless attempts to adapt the comic book series ‘Preacher‘ by Garth Ennis for years now. We’ve even written about it on this site many times. Now, it seems that there is finally some steam and a new company wanting to develop this amazing and sadistic story. And that company is AMC.

Hi, Bryan Here….

As we have previously reported, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are making their directorial debut with ‘End of the World’.  This is based on a short film that starred Rogen and Jay Baruchel called ‘Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse’.  It had both  Rogen and Baruchel who took shelter in their apartment as they dealt with the end of the world.  Of course this is going to be on a much bigger scale and since it’s Rogen and Goldberg’s first job at directing; they want to litter the film with tons of big cameos.

Hi Bryan Here….

Seth Rogen is looking to make his directorial debut with ‘The Apocalypse’ which is currently in final negotiations with Sony.  The film was written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg from a story by Jason Stone. The film was inspired by a short called ‘Jay and Seth vs The Apocalypse’. In it, Rogen and Jay Baruchel play their real life selves while they ride out the end of the world in their apartment. Now since the project has grown into something much bigger, they have added James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson to the cast.

Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day Lewis are back at it again with a new film called ‘Phantom Thread‘, which is set to release on Christmas later this year. I’m quite sure the film, along with both Lewis and Anderson will be nominated for all the Oscars. Of course, Anderson brought us ‘Boogie Nights‘ all those years ago and has continued to bring us amazing films over the years. He even teamed with Daniel Day Lewis with ‘There Will Be Blood‘, which is still talked about today, milkshakes and all.

Look Who Will Be in the Live Action Lion King Remake!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 10th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Unfortunately, Disney is remaking The Lion King in the form of a live-action debacle, similar to the recent horrid turd of a film Beauty and the Beast. Fortunately though, they have Jon Favreau in the director’s chair. I trust him. He gave us Iron Man and the recent live-action remake of The Jungle Book, which was loads better than that Beast movie. There are literally no humans in The Lion King story, unlike Jungle Book or Beauty and the Beast and if it follows the same pattern with the same exact camera shots and songs as its animated predecessor, it’s more than likely going to lose whatever emotion and lovable quality it had in the lifeless eyes of the CGI live-action animals.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

0002-neighbors-2-ew_0

It’s rare when a comedy sequel works on all levels. With sequels, you’d hope the original cast comes back and there is a good balance of returning and new jokes and plot devices to make it stand on its own without doing the same recycled material as the original. With the case of ‘Neighbors‘, you had a pretty great cast with Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron, Dave Franco, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, in an ‘R’ rated comedy about a couple with a newborn baby, trying to raise a family next to a frat house. It was a solid premise with a lot of funny moments. The small budget film of only $18 million went on to make over $270 million at the box office.

Steve Jobs opens on a black and white video of a young boy listening with profound focus to a computer technician’s progressive response to the world’s potential journey towards a computer-dependent society.  Young Steve Jobs clearly had a desire for technological innovation in his blood even then.  Through his wide-eyed look, the turning of his mental wheels was easily discerned.  Even then, you could tell that Jobs had his mind set on a path to making the right computers a part of everyone’s everyday life.  Fast forward to the launch of the first Mac where an all-grown up Jobs (Michael Fassbender) is in a state of controlled panic (or was it frustration?).

Comedy mastermind Judd Apatow is back this year with a new feature film called ‘Trainwreck‘ and is his best film since ‘Knocked Up‘. That was eight years ago. Sure, Apatow has written and produced dozens of films since then, but has only really directed two other feature films since, being ‘Funny People‘ and ‘This is 40‘. The usual actors are nowhere to be seen in ‘Trainwreck‘ either. There is no Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jason Segel, Martin Starr, or even James Franco to be seen anywhere on screen. Actress and comedienne Amy Schumer wrote the screenplay here for Apatow to direct and the two are a perfect pair.

In what I personally declared one of the absolute worst movies of 2014, ‘Neighbors‘ stars Seth Rogen and Zac Efron turned in some fairly uninspired performances. I generally like the two actors, especially Zac Efron in ‘The Paperboy‘, so I want to say it was the abysmal story line that limited their range. It wasn’t a huge laugher in my book, but still went on to become the highest grossing comedy of the 2014 year. I can only hope it’s because everyone wanted to laugh, maybe they did – maybe they didn’t, but that’s not a good enough reason to stop Universal Pictures from announcing a sequel.

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

Director David Gordon Green has had quite an impressive resume over the last ten years, and this being 2014, Green is showing no signs of weakening or bowing down to the execs of Hollywood any time soon. Green’s resume includes ‘Pineapple Express‘, ‘Eastbound and Down‘, ‘Your Highness‘, and the more recent drama ‘Prince Avalanche‘. He also produced the gritty thriller ‘Compliance‘. Green seemed to step away from the likes of Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen, and Danny McBride, and made an unrelenting yet beautiful movie with ‘Joe‘, which is based on a novel by Larry Brown of the same name from 1991.

A John Grisham novel is like a mug of coffee on a stormy day, a glass of wine after the kids are asleep, or even a Xanax when you want to rip someone’s head off. The point is, it’s a calming, reassuring presence. It’s going to be an intense, legal, thrill ride that has a feel-good ending. Grisham’s tried and true writing style is gripping, authentic and something that lends itself to film adaptation easily. This has been the case with ‘The Firm‘, ‘The Pelican Brief‘, ‘The Client‘ and ‘A Time to Kill‘ among several others. There is even a complete departure from his norm evident in ‘Christmas With The Kranks‘.

Synopsis: The apocalypse has come to Hollywood. The good have been taken to heaven during the rapture, and the bad (including most actors) have been left to fend for themselves against all sorts of invading evil. The story follows six actors (Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson) as they struggle to survive, find food and water, fight off monsters, and avoid killing each other in the process.

Film Review: ‘This is the End’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 11th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 this_is_the-end

Car crashes, explosions, decapitations, exorcisms, the apocalypse, and tons of dick jokes make up Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen’sThis is the End‘. And I can say that it’s the most fun I’ve had at the movies in ten years. In this dark comedy, we have the entire Apatow clan plus many more cameos of our favorite comedians who all play themselves as they take on the end of days. It’s genuine, gut-bustingly funny, sick, crude, and self-deprecating, which all results in the likes of a twisted reality show, complete with solo interviews with a camera scattered throughout the movie. I anticipate a large opening weekend with a long lasting power after ‘Man of Steel‘ releases later this week.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Writer/director/producer Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Funny People) brings audiences This Is 40, an original comedy that expands upon the story of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) from the blockbuster hit Knocked Up as we see first-hand how they are dealing with their current state of life.  Looks like Apatow is straying a bit away from the toilet humor with each film he makes.  This looks very good, however I will miss Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Martin Starr, and Jonah Hill in this film.  Enjoy the trailer.  ‘This is 40’ releases December 21st, 2012.

Bryan Reviews ‘The Watch’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 27th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I was excited to see ‘The Watch’ when I sat in my theater chair.  I’m a fan of Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, and Richard Ayoade.  And I thought the premise of the film was going to be a lot of fun as well, mixing a vulgar humor guy comedy film with a full scale alien invasion.  It sounds good on paper with that plot and cast.  Unfortunately, Hill, Stiller, and Vaughn play the same character they have played in their last seven movies.  The script is lethargic throughout the entire film with the exception of a few lines of dialogue that I suspect was improv.  And that feels weird to say since the script was credited to Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Jared Stern.  While ‘The Watch’ has a decent premise and stellar cast, the mark is missed by a good 1000 yards.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Morgan Spurlock hits a home run with his new documentary, Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope.  Spurlock’s previous documentaries are: Super-Size Me, Greatest Movie Ever Sold, and the FX series 30 Days.  In all of these documentaries, Spurlock conducts different social experiments, always putting himself in front of the camera as the guinea pig.  With Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope, he is not seen on camera but rather follows several different people as they attend the one, the only, San Diego Comic-Con.

Bryan’s Most Anticipated Films for 2011!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

So 2010 is over and 2011 has just begun.  I was recently talking with a friend and we both agreed that 2010 was kind of a let down as far as movies went.  Don’t get me wrong, there were some precious gems riddled throughout the year, but they were not many.  Basically I said, that it was a very uncool year with flashes of coolness in regards to films.

Here you can watch the new Sci-Fi Comedy trailer starring Shaun of the Dead’s Simon Pegg and Nick Frost with  a CGI alien voiced by Seth Rogen.  Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, and Kristin Wiig also make appearances.

This trailer looks amazing.  I am always on board when Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are working together.  They produce comedic gold.  And with Greg Mottola directing, this should be one hell of a funny ride.  Mottola directed Superbad.

What do yall think of the trailer?
