Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

Sony Pictures Entertainment has released an official trailer for Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, a follow-up to their 2015 adaptation of author R.L. Stine‘s popular book series of the same name.

Not a whole lot is known about the sequel yet, which is surprising considering an official trailer has now been released. You can find the trailer below along with a new poster and a little more on what we do know about the sequel.

Muppets Scandal

The Muppets are coming, and I’m pretty sure they made enough promos to have a complete episode. Maybe… that is the 1st episode, just given in 30-50 second increments. No, that would be way too meta. Anyway, if these promos are any indication of what the show will be like, I’m sold. My favorites are the ones with Nathan Fillion (Castle), trying to get with Miss Piggy. Some of the other ABC stars in these commercials are Clark Gregg (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Guillermo Diaz (who is fantastic) and Katie Lowes (Scandal), and Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs).

So… check out the “About the Show” and keep on enjoying the really tiny clips below.

The Muppets Clark Gregg Header

ABC is having a blast with The Muppets, and it hasn’t even aired yet. The premise, a faux documentary show, goes behind the scenes and follows the Muppets around in their personal lives. To go along with this, ABC has filmed TV spots starring other ABC stars, but also did it from a behind the scenes perspective. The spots include Scott Foley and Kerry Washington (Scandal), Eden Sher (The Middle), Ken Jeong (Dr. Ken – coming soon), Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs), Clark Gregg (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson (Black-ish), and Randall Park and Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat).

Watch all of the ads below. So fun!

Starring Wendi McLendon-Covey, Hayley Orrantia, Sean Giambrone , Jeff Garlin, George Segal
ABC
Air Date: Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015, 8:30pm

The Goldbergs have often tackled iconic ’80s pop culture references. Adam (Sean Giambrone) and Pops (George Segal) re-enacted Ghostbusters, and earlier this season he and big brother Barry (Troy Gentile) were a New Kids on the Block cover band. On the latest episode of the show, “As You Wish,” yet another ’80s classic gets The Goldbergs treatment: The Princess Bride.

The Goldbergs 2.17 The Adam Bomb

The Goldbergs
Episode 2.17 “The Adam Bomb”
Created by Adam F. Goldberg
Directed by Lew Schneider
Written by Chris Bishop
Starring Wendi McLendon-Covey, Jeff Garlin, Sean Giambrone, Troy Gentile, Hayley Orrantia, George Segal
ABC
Air date: April 1, 2015, 8:30pm

Happy April Fool’s Day! The Goldbergs 2.17 “The Adam Bomb” review has a few spoilers, if you haven’t seen the episode yet, but it’s a half hour comedy where the problem is always resolved in 23 minutes, so how much can I really spoil anyway?

It is April 1st, 1980-something as we visit our favorite 80’s family on April Fool’s Day. Adam (Sean Giambrone) compared his and Barry’s (Troy Gentile) relationship to the Cold War – Reagan vs Gorbachev and Rocky vs “that ‘roided out monster that killed Apollo Creed.” So Adam decides to play the greatest April’s Fool prank ever. He took Barry’s prize possession, the one thing he was “never to touch with my human oils.” And pretended to destroy it in the dryer.

SXSW 2015 Movie Review: Hello, My Name Is Doris

Sally Field in Hello, My Name is Doris

Hello, My Name Is Doris
Director: Michael Showalter
Screenwriter: Michael Showalter, Laura Terruso
Cast: Sally Field, Max Greenfield, Beth Behrs, Wendi Mclendon-Covey, Stephen Root, Elizabeth Reaser, Jack Antonoff, Natasha Lyonne, Tyne Daly
Release date: March 14, 2015 (SXSW)

In Hello, My Name Is Doris, Doris (Sally Field, The Amazing Spider-Man) is a sixty-something woman experiencing a life crisis. Inspired by a motivational speaker, Doris attempts to woo a much younger man, and finds herself embraced by the Brooklyn hipster scene in the process.

Having missed out on living for the first sixty years of her life, Doris is equal parts innocent and lustful; desperate to experience life before it’s too late. Screenwriter Laura Terruso’s juxtaposition of “vintage-obsessed hipster” culture and “cooky cat-lady hoarder” is brilliant, lending itself to endless situational comedy. Field is perfect in the role of Doris. Funny, vulnerable, sexy, and cute, often all at the same time.

Movie Review: Bridesmaids

BridesmaidsBridesmaids
Directed by Paul Feig
Starring: Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Chris O’Dowd, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ellie Kemper, Melissa McCarthy, Jon Hamm
Release Date: May 13, 2011

Hollywood finally thought that a movie about women having fun should get made, and that this novel perception could be adequately funny. What a great idea! Not a pampered fun, though, the girls in Sex and the City have been relishing. Not even a subdued fun the girls in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants had. Let’s try for a fun that is manly, demeaning, and vulgar. Maybe this is the kind of comedy women will flock to see. Geez, such wishful thinking. Maybe the bulk of moviegoers fantasize about the deconstruction of the ideal beauty women rightly and proudly possessed for decades and millenniums. Truthfully, what’s not to admire when a woman bears striking resemblance to a character that Jonah Hill or Seth Rogen played? It is about time Hollywood let women experience the glitz and glamor not of Gucci or Vera Wang, but of the films Judd Apatow has had some influence on.

Striving for justice in a comedic world littered with uninspiring material that poses as comedy may seem like a daunting task. Genuineness is inapplicable in most comedies and the streak, sadly, continues with director Paul Feig’s Bridesmaids, scripted by co-stars Kristen Wiig, of Saturday Night Live fame, and Annie Mumolo. The script has no abundance of humor. It is scarce and limited. Scenes desperately seeking that elusive, original idea that permits and encourages the audience to revel in its inventiveness are nowhere to be found.
