To quote FOX’s series description, Son of Zorn (Sundays, 8:30/7:0C) is a hybrid live-action/animated comedy about an animated warrior from a faraway island in the Pacific Ocean who returns to Orange County, CA, to win back his live-action ex-wife and teenage son.

In tomorrow night’s special preview – following the NFL doubleheader (8/7C) – we meet Zorn (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) as he and his animated companions thwart yet another attack on Zephyria before heading back to Orange County for his son’s seventeenth birthday.

Race Jogs But It Gets There In The End!

RACE

For a movie about the then fastest man alive, Race certainly takes its time – the story of how Jesse Owens became the winner of four gold medals at the Berlin Olympics of 1936 makes up its more dawdling sections with unexpected (frequently truth is stranger than fiction) details and a strong performance by Stephan James.

While Owens’ story hits a lot of familiar sports movie beats, the moments of pure truth that require those beats overcome the movie’s moments of familiarity.

‘On the track, there is no black and white. Only fast and slow.’ That’s Jesse Owens talking about prejudice.

Owens went to the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin and tore a few pages from the record books – making Adolf Hitler’s perfect Aryan race look very imperfect.

Race is the story of how he did that. It opens on February 19th. Take a look behind the scenes in three new videos from Focus Features following the break.

Twisted Trailer: Horrible Bosses 2!

01

In Horrible Bosses 2, Nick, Dale and Kurt – thoroughly tired of answering to higher-ups – set up their own business but get ousted by a slick investor. Once again, they see themselves as being forced to do something reprehensible to save themselves. In theory, hilarity ensues. Which it might – Jennifer Aniston is back, in full sexual predator mode; Jamie Foxx is back as the would-be advisor to the trio’s illegal activities, and even Kevin Spacey is back as one of the first movie’s titular horrible bosses.

The new trailer is promising. Very promising. Check it out after the jump. Horrible Bosses 2 will attack theaters on November 26th.
