Gunpowder & Sky’s new film The Little Hours – based on Giovanni Boccaccio’s Decameron – is the story of three medieval nuns – Alessandra (Alison Brie), Fernanda (Aubrey Plaza), and Ginevra (Kate Micucci) – whose days days are spent chafing at monastic routine, spying on one another, and berating the estate’s day laborer.
Things change (and not necessarily for the better when Father Tommasso (John C. Reilly) brings on new hired hand Massetto (Dave Franco).
When David returns to the place where it all began, he and Syd and Melanie Byrd’s team find themselves in a very familiar setting – a heightened version of the same mental institution from Legion (FX, Wednesdays, 10/9C): Episode 1.
Golan The Insatiable is the new half-hour animated comedy series that premieres on FOX on the evening of Sunday, May 31st (10:30/9:30C) – but it’s not a completely new show.
This version, starring Rob Riggle as mighty godlord Golan the Insatiable and Aubrey Plaza as macabre nine year-old Dylan – his only friend – was inspired by the series of the same name that aired as part of FOX’s Animation Domination HD late night Saturday programming block.
Golan comes from an alternate dimension and befriends Dylan who uses their friendship to persuade Golan to wreak havoc on her town – not that he needs much persuading.
The voice cast also includes Ken Marino, John DiMaggio, Maria Bamford, Rachel Butera and Nick Rutherford. For more, follow the jump.
Told from the point of view of a screenwriter (Chris Evans) who doesn’t believe in love anymore, Playing It Cool wants to be both hip and a screwball romantic comedy and never quite succeeds at being either – though it’s fun watching it try.
