“Somebody please get this man a gun!”

With 2014’s John Wick, co-directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch delivered a stylish neo-noir action thriller with hyper-kinetic fight choreography and sophisticated “gun fu” a-la John Woo’s The Killer. In the follow-up, John Wick: Chapter 2, Stahelski and returning screenwriter Derek Kolstad attempt to delve deeper into Wick’s internal struggle and expand the franchise’s mythology.

After unleashing hell on the Russian mobsters who killed his dog, retired hitman John Wick (Keanu Reeves)’s plans to resume a quiet civilian life are cut short when Italian gangster Santino D’Antonio (Riccardo Scamarcio) shows up on his doorstep with a gold “marker” compelling him to repay past favors.

Sing Interview Garth Jennings

In Illumination’s latest film, Sing, Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) is holding a singing competition in his dying theater in a last ditch effort to scrounge up the money needed before the bank can repossess his beloved property. The optimistic koala settles on five contestants: a mouse (Seth MacFarlane), a timid elephant (Tori Kelly), a pig (Reese Witherspoon), a gorilla (Taron Egerton), and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson), in hopes that they can generate the funds necessary to keep the theater afloat but also bring back interest in genuine talent. Little does he know that the road to success isn’t easy, but with a little hard work and some faith, it can be done.

We had a phone interview with the film’s director Garth Jennings (A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Son of Rambow) to talk about what it was like to get clearance for the songs, working on his first animated film, his reaction to all the positive buzz, and much more. Check it out below.

The Tick

In March, it was announced that Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television were developing a pilot for a live-action series based on Ben Edlund‘s superhero spoof comic book The Tick, with Edlund scripting and serving as an executive producer and British comedic genius Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy) cast in the title role. The pilot was directed by Wally Pfister, the cinematographer on all three of Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies, Inception, and Moneyball.

Recently Amazon released both the premiere date for the pilot and a small set of images, including our first look at Serafinowicz is full Tick attire. You can check out the pictures here below.

‘The Tick’ TV Show: Peter Serafinowicz Cast In Title Role For Amazon Series

Peter Serafinowicz to Star In The Tick

Back in 2001 a live-action TV series based on Ben Edlund‘s comic The Tick was made with Seinfeld, Family Guy, and The Emperor’s New Groove star Patrick Warburton playing the title role. The show aired on Fox and, as shows tend to do there, only lasted nine episodes (related note #1: Edlund also worked on that other show you think of when you think of Fox shows that were canceled too early, Firefly, writing the episodes “Trash” and “Jaynestown” and also producing). But even with its short run, the show has developed a cult following.

While that show isn’t coming back to life, Amazon has ordered a pilot episode for a potential brand new series based on Edlund’s Tick character. Nothing is official yet as far as getting a full series order, but an actor has been chosen to take over the role from Warburton. It’s being reported that comedian, actor, writer, and all-around talented gentleman Peter Serafinowicz will take on the title role for the pilot.

Spy Melissa McCarthy

Melissa McCarthy is incredibly funny, and she is the crown jewel of every Paul Feig film she stars in. Following the success of Bridesmaids and Heat comes Spy, an action-comedy spy film that sees the comedian go from CIA desk analyst to a full-fledged highly untrained spy. We have already seen one trailer for the film, and now Fox has released the second one.

McCarthy play the unknown spy who will be trained by Jude Law, a clean cut suave spy; and Jason Statham, a dark and brooding spy who does whatever it takes to get the job done. Rose Byrne will play the international criminal who knows the identity of every spy in the CIA. Hit the jump to check out the new trailer.
