It’s hard to say where exactly AMC’s Preacher would ruffle religious feathers, given the comic has satirized Christianity with gleeful aplomb since 1995. This past Monday’s “Dirty Little Secret” may have tipped the scales, as even the Catholic League is up in arms about an unholy sex scene.
Seth Rogen is getting back into the teen comedy business — sorry, tween comedy business this time — with Good Boys, a somehow R-rated movie about a bunch of 12-year-old lads juggling their own coming of age with a journey to replace a drone toy before their parents find out they broke it.
We've only one more week before Preacher hits the road to search for God, but there's plenty of time to look ahead. Get your best look yet at Season 2 with an in-depth featurette highlighting some of the grosser aspects, along with a tone closer to the comics.
These days, we take our amusement where we can. For the past week, the internet has been entranced by the disaster that is the Frye Festival, a supposed music festival for rich millennials that quickly descended into anarchy when musicians and vendors pulled out due to its unsafe conditions. The full scope of the festival’s failure was laid bare in Friday’s piece at New York Magazine, where one administrator — or former admin, since she dropped as soon as she realized the full scope of the organizers’ failure — spoke candidly about the missteps leading up to the festival. For entertainment value, the Frye Festival just can’t be beat.
Well, if James Franco and Seth Rogen couldn’t make an ‘80s teen series work out, they might have better luck in the ‘90s. We’ll find out, as the Pineapple Express pair are teaming with Hulu and screenwriter/media personality Kelly Oxford for a new ‘90s teen drama.
Sometimes, news of new releases makes sense. Sometimes you can’t help but do a double-take. In today’s “Huh” news, Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen have both signed on to star in and produce a romantic comedy about a struggling journalist’s long-lived crush on his former babysitter, titled Flarsky.
With Sausage Party setting an August box office record this past weekend, that sound you hear is doors across Hollywood opening for R-rated animated movies. This is probably an overdue development. Movies from studios like Pixar and Studio Ghibli have long been praised by people of all ages for the maturity of their themes; it was only a matter of time until someone with a proven track record and a bit of vision — a filthy, filthy vision — pushed animated movies right off into the deep end.
The comedic talents of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg may not always have a guiding hand in AMC’s Preacher, though the pilot more than carried some visceral influence. If you don’t believe us, take it from pair themselves, as AMC released the Preacher pilot with Rogen and Goldberg’s commentary!
Sausage Party is the world's first (that we know of) R-rated CGI-animated comedy and features the voice of Seth Rogen as Frank, a hot dog who finally realizes his dream or being rescued from a grocery store shelf only to realize what happens to food outside the safe confines of the neighborhood supermarket...
In what sounds like something truly special, Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis and Bill Hader will combine their comedic forces for The Something, the directorial debut from 22 Jump Street scribe Rodney Rothman. The project has been percolating for a while, but it looks as though Rothman and Co. are finally ready for take-off with the space-set comedy.
