This just in: One day after Netflix revealed it inked a four-picture deal with comedian and critical pariah Adam Sandler, the wellspring of the actor’s potential creative pursuits has been leaked to the public! A Norwegian website is hosting the long sought-after Adam Sandler Movie Generator, finally resolving the longstanding mystery of “Who thinks of this crap?!” in reference to Sandler vehicles such as <em>You Don’t Mess with the Zohan</em>, <em>Little Nicky</em>, and dozens more.
Pharrell Williams’ new single “It Girl” feels like being dipped in waves of rainbow metallic liquid on a sunny day. So it’s only appropriate the music video looks just like that—plus anime and 16-bit videogame vibes.
You might be tempted to blacklist any more footage from <em>Interstellar</em> until the movie actually comes out. That’s fair. It’s the kind of film where the mystery leading up to its release feels essential to the viewing experience itself. It would be understandable if you wanted to let all the jittery excitement and anticipation bottle up so that by the time you’ve got a ticket and the lights dim you want to jettison out of your seat like the rocket on screen. But the latest <em>Interstellar</em> trailer hit the web today, and it is <em>so</em> worth your time.
Fall TV is finally here and we need no longer rely on late-night talk shows to provide us with the bounty of sharable moments we seek to provide. Not that the summer hasn’t been fun, but every workhorse deserves a break now and then, and scripted shows are back to provide relief for Conan and Seth and the Jimmys. John Oliver, however, we’ll gladly keep going back to that well for<em>ever</em>. So, in addition to the usual gang of idiots, we’ve got a little more <em>Broad City</em> for you, a dash of <em>Saturday Night Live</em>, and some scripted network TV fare in the form of <em>Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.</em> and the new comedy <em>Black-ish</em>. Wash it all down with Funny or Die’s take on <em>True Detective</em> and you’ve got a well-balanced television diet. Welcome back, autumn!
The movie gods gaveth in a big way this week. <em>Jupiter Ascending</em> came roaring back onto the track after veering off course for a bit, and lead the charge for a few smaller budget sci-fi companions. Elsewhere, a bunch of stuff blew up in trailers for <em>Kingsmen: The Secret Service</em> and <em>Blackhat</em>, and we got our sad on with some moody film festival fodder. So overall, there’s something for the nerds, something for the family, and something for the film majors. Popcorn up and let’s ride!
