Robert DeNiro plays Jackie Burke – an insult comic who had a hit sitcom back in the day – is trying to make a comeback, but there’s a hitch. Jackie assaulted a guy who was taping his act in a club and is sentenced to community service.
On the bright side, while serving his sentence he meets Leslie Mann’s Harmony – who’s as messed up as he is.
Sony Pictures classics has released a cool new poster and a ‘first look’ set of stills from The Comedian check them out – along with the trailer – after the break.
An insult comic who used to have a hit TV show, Jackie Burke may be a comedy icon, but no one wants him to reinvent himself. Which is unfortunate because it leads to his assaulting a guy who tries to tape his insult comedy routine and sticks him with community service.
On the plus side, he meets a girl…
The Comedian will have a select, Oscar®-qualifying release in December before opeing wide on January 13, 2017. Follow the break to check out the trailer.
Sometimes – especially in the case of family dramedies – the best stuff is in the trailer. The new trailer for The Hollars could be on of those, but that would be a shame – the cast includes some of the most brilliant character actors of our time: Margo Martindale (Justified, The Americans), Richard Jenkins (Olive Kitteridge, Cabin in the Woods), Sharlto Copley (Powers, District 9), Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, Into the Woods), John Krasinski (The Office, Promised Land), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (BrainDead, 10 Cloverfield Lane) and Randall Park (Fresh Off the Boat, The Interview).
Check out the first trailer after the jump. The Hollars opens in New York and Los Angeles on August 26th.
The Bronze is the story of a woman who achieved an impossible medal in gymnastics but instead of using that to go on to better things, coasted on the glory of that achievement – then, for all the wrong reasons, found a way to move on… and nearly blew it.
Ten years ago, Hope Ann Greggory was America’s sweetheart. Performing through a serious injury at the world’s most prestigious gymnastics tournament clinched an unlikely bronze medal for the U.S. team and brought glory to her hometown of Amherst, Ohio. Still living in her dad Stan’s basement, she spends her days at the mall milking her minor celebrity for free food and favors.
Then she’s put in the unenviable (for her) position of having to train gymnastic prodigyl Maggie or forfeit a sizable inheritance. Does the egocentirc Hope Ann go for it – or does she sabotage the newbie who threatens to take her place in the hearts of the town?
The Bronze was co-written by and stars Melissa Rauch (The Big Bang Theory), Gary Cole, Thomas Middleditch, Sebastian Stan, Cecily Strong, Haley Lu Richardson. Check out the green band trailer after the jump. The Bronze opens on March 18th.

In Woody Allen’s new film, Irrational Man, Joaquin Phoenix stars as a philosophy professor who seems overwhelmed by something even deeper than despair. Even a perky student played by Emma Stone can’t seem to lift his spirits.
Whiplash, my favorite movie of 2014, is now available on DVD.
It’s a tale of the lengths someone will got to to be great, and the lengths someone will go to to push someone to be great. Whiplash won three Oscars® this year – including Best Supporting Actor for J.K. Simmons for the role of Mr. Fletcher, the abusive instructor/conductor of the top-rated music school’s jazz band.
