Mark Wahlberg reveals Hangover-ish plot for the Entourage movie

06.08.2010

Ever since the 24 finale was the weakest thing I've ever seen, I've been skeptical about TV series wrapping up with movies. I think it forces the show to end on a soft note to set up for the film, which is lame when you’ve been watching a show for say, eight years. It’s one thing if it’s a prematurely axed show like Firefly, where SERENITY was a perfect bookend for the film, but for an existing show wrapping up on its own accord? Ehhh.

Well the latest show to continue that new trend will be Entourage, as after two more (short) seasons, the gang is shooting a movie, which producer Mark Wahlberg talked briefly about to MTV. 

Wahlberg offered up one particularly memorable scene, though it had nothing to do with Vinnie.:“In the trailer, you see [Ari and his associate, Lloyd] waking up together in Vegas not knowing what happened. It would be pretty cool!” … “I just think we can make a great movie. I think people always wanted [it] and have complained that the episodes are too short — they’ve always wanted more. I think we’re going to do it. We just have to end strong, and this season is, by far, the best season so far.”

Whoa! Guys waking up in Vegas not knowing what happened? Where did you get that flash of genius?

Whatever, I’ll watch it, just like I’ll watch the 24 movie, but I would have been perfectly OK with just a great series finale for either.

Entourage is lame. no likable characters, no interesting story. Just Bullshit. The music is the only good thing about it...

I missed the entire last season. Is Wlaburg talking about "this season" being the best as in the one they are filming now?? Anyone??

I actually thought Season 5 was the best season as it focused more on the movie side, production values were up, was quite a downer and actually saw the character's slightly progress. :) I'd definitly be keen for the movie and don't see a need to be critical of the show as it only presents it self as what it is...a piece of light entertainment.

This will probably be like the Simpson's movie. I'll see it eventually because I'm a fan of the series (even if both aren't as good as they use to be), but at the same time nothing really excites me about watching an extended episode.

Ari is now that only good character in this show, but I think the show has gotten progressively worse. Just end it, no need for a Hangover rip off.

I hope Entourage can get back to the quality of season 1,2,3 andc even parts of 4. The last two have been pretty bad overall, with season 6 being a massive piece of shit.

I'll hold judgement till we start seeing this happening, but it sounds too much like the hangover. so far....


Anybody reckon Len Grossman could cameo in entourage, that would be pretty epic. Him and Ari going at eachothers throats.

I'm down I love Entourage and HBO films really needs a better franchise than Sex and the City, too bad a Sopranos or The Wire movie is out of the question.

the show would be better if it was centered around Ari and the adventures of being a high-end Hollyweird agent. Just have him juggling tyrannical studios and his wacko clients and I'd be in.

Drama, E and the rest of the meatheads are the least interesting part of the show.

I don't really agree with the extra tidbit. But even though I don't think they jumped the shark after Aquaman (the season following that was the best one IMO, with Vince trying to desperately land a contract), I do agree that they made a HUGE mistake last season by making Vince a very small supporting character to the rest of the crew. He needs to take center stage one more, or else the series will lose its fun...

Also, I can understand a 24 movie to end the saga, but I really can't see why

Also, I can understand a 24 movie to end the saga, but I really can't see why they'd do the same thing for Entourage. Just keep it on TV for a season or two, and I'll be more than happy,,,

Don't watch Entourage, but the 24 comment pulled me in. I agree 24 had a weak ending, but to defend it, it wasn't like LOST who had three years to prepare for their ending. It was a season ending, not a show ending. Had it gone for a ninth season, I think things might have been different. Sadly, it won't be.

"EXTRA TIDBIT: Entourage jumped the shark after Aquaman. Which was a loooonnng time ago."

Perhaps, but Ari is pulling the series forward; Jeremy Piven is the star of the show.

The last season of 24 was good, but I was dissapointed with the finale. It should have been more chaotic and it seemed like Jack didn't really do anything in the finale, just everything before it. I'm not a fan of tv shows turning into movies because then I'd rather just see another season on the small screen, not the big one. Entourage might be an exception because it is a show that could work in Movie fashion
