The new trailer for Minions gives us villains, bananas, and bedtime stories

When it comes to the world of animated films, Universal's DESPICABLE ME franchise seems to be the most viable in terms of marketing. Where SHREK seemed to outlive it's welcome and Disney, Pixar, and Dreamworks taking their sweet time between films in their franchises, Universal is going all in and releasing their third film in their series just two years after the last one. MINIONS...

Check out Minions' supervillain Scarlet Overkill voiced by Sandra Bullock

It would be a stretch to see Sandra Bullock in a role of supervillain in a live-action film; she’s one of America’s favorite actresses, or sweethearts if you want. Luckily for us she can at least voice a villain with the use of animation. In the upcoming film MINIONS, a spin-off for the titular characters from DESPICABLE ME, she plays Scarlet Overkill and we have some...

Jon Hamm's content not being a superhero despite feeling old and irrelevant

With the phenomenal Mad Men coming to a close in 2015, you'd think Don Draper himself, Jon Hamm , would have been eager to swoop up another steady gig. It seems that he feels exactly the opposite, especially when it comes to comic book films, despite fan's wishes. Hamm has been rumored to be up for comic book movie roles in the past , but nothing ever came of it. While Hamm...

The funny first Trailer for the Despicable Me spinoff Minions has arrived

It took a few years, but the show-stealing Minions from DESPICABLE ME finally have their very own movie coming out. The first trailer has arrived for the appropriately titled MINIONS and it's set to some pretty great music from the 60’s which was a rather nice surprise. When I first watched DESPICABLE ME I was a little let down after being told again and again how amazing it...

U.S. trailer for Brit comedy Alan Partridge starring Steve Coogan arrives

ALAN PARTRIDGE is coming to the U.S.! Well, in movie form, anyway. The famed "faux" British radio host has been around for decades in the U.K. and built quite a following, while remaining relatively unknown to mass audiences in the U.S. However, comedian Steve Coogan 's outlandish alter ego is about to wash up on our shores and expose us to the vulgar, narcissistic...

Review: The Trip to Italy (Sundance 2014)

PLOT: Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon (playing fictionalized versions of themselves) go on a road trip through Italy, where they sample the local cuisine, discuss life, and generally get on each others nerves.
