Specialty Box Office Preview: James Gandolfini’s ‘The Drop’, ‘The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them’, More
The upcoming weekend boasts an onslaught of new Specialty titles vying for audiences. In all likelihood, however, many will have a short big screen life as the fall’s awards contenders ramp up and crowd others out. Five of this week’s dozen-plus newcomers are spotlighted here with Fox Searchlight’s The Drop edging on a wide release. The feature starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini will bow in over 800 theaters. TWC’s The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby also joins the fray with a platform release. The film also has two accompanying titles told from the perspective of its two main characters, which will be released in more limited runs in October. Magnolia will open its thriller Honeymoon in a day and date release while Dada Films’ Swearnet: The Movie breaks a movie record with the most F-bombs ever. And Cohen Media Group’s My Old Lady bowed Wednesday in limited release.

Swearnet: The Movie Brags About Its Profanity But Still Sucks

To say that Canadian comedy hits rock bottom in this abhorrent meta-infomercial for a Funny or Die-like network boasting uncensored online content is the politest way to describe two ugly hours of smug, doughy misogynists saying "fuck" some 935 record-breaking times.

(As shocking as and less funny than a novelty hand buzzer, Swearnet also tallies 76 "shits" and 79 "cocks," according to its marketing material.) Unlike the perpetually wasted Nova Scotia dirtbags they play in the mockumentary franchise Trailer Park Boys, bafflingly successful stars and co-writers Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay, and Mike Smith here portray ego-fueled fantasy caricatures of their real selves.

They're tired of signing so many autographs, the women in their lives are either sub...

Here's What's New on Netflix for September 2014

  • Moviefone
It's almost September, which means a whole new slew of titles on Netflix! August proved pretty lucrative on the quality title front, but it looks as though September it's going to blow the rundown out of the water.

TV takes spotlight this month, with the latest full seasons of "The Walking Dead," "New Girl," "The League," "The Blacklist," "Arrow," "Bones," and "Parks and Recreation" primed and ready for streaming before their fall premieres. And fans still mourning the loss of "How I Met Your Mother" (in more ways than one) can rewatch the ninth and final season to their heart's content. Ah, memories. Showtime's recently departed "Californication" can be seen in its entirety (Seasons 1 -7) as well, starting September 1. That's a lot of TV.

Movie fans have plenty to look forward to from Netflix in September, too. Sam Raimi's undersung 1998 thriller "A Simple Plan" hits the streaming service September

'Swearnet': Mike Smith, Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay Take on Censors (Nsfw Video)

  • Moviefone
*** Warning: Very Explicit Video -- Foul Language And Nudity ***

The Boys are back -- but not in the roles you're used to.

In "Swearnet," John Paul Tremblay, Robb Wells and Mike Smith play themselves -- three guys burnt out on the idea of being known solely as the Trailer Park Boys, who want to try something new.

That something new is Swearnet, a website/streaming video network showcasing the mischief and debauchery that only the Boys could get up to. Yes, it exists in real life, and "Swearnet" the movie is a fictional rundown of how the idea began.

For those of you unfamiliar with Tremblay, Wells and Smith, please be advised the video is not for the weak -- there is so much swearing it's pretty much every second word. Sometimes every word. Plus, we meet "Swearnet" mascot Swearman, who's ... oh, you have to see for yourself.

Jimmy Kimmel Rips Into Matthew McConaughey's "Movie Star Face"

Jimmy Kimmel Rips Into Matthew McConaughey's
Jimmy Kimmel basically took over Seth Meyers's hosting gig when he presented the award for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series at the 2014 Emmy Awards on Monday night and started ripping into audience members. The late-night star, who has hosted the show before, kicked things off by ribbing Matthew McConaughey for being a movie star at a TV-centric award show. After joking that Matthew had a "movie star face" and didn't belong on the small screen, Jimmy then made a point of finding Ricky Gervais in the audience to joke about his TV face. "Actually it's not even a TV face, it's a Netflix face," Jimmy joked. (Don't be offended for Ricky; he looked like he loved it.) Other award-show-host-worthy digs included mocking Matthew for "getting fat" since the Oscars and complaining about having to sit through another one of the star's infamous acceptance speeches.

Halfway Mark: The Best TV Episodes of 2014 (So Far), Part 3

Hannibal, “Mizumono”

Written by Steve Lightfoot and Bryan Fuller

Directed by David Slade

Aired May 23rd, 2014

“I let you know me… see me. I gave you a rare gift, but you didn’t want it.” – Hannibal Lecter

If there’s such thing as arthouse television, Hannibal‘s second season is it, a thirteen-hour fever dream of blood, orchestral music, and psychological mind games. Above all, it was a cinematic tragedy, a symbolically-rich tale of a man courting the devil and (most likely) living to tell about it, set against the backdrop of television’s most arresting visual palette.

“Mizumono” is the sweet, sweet cherry on the top of Hannibal‘s breathtaking sophomore effort, a dramatic crescendo catalyzed by one small mistake made on Will’s part: leaving the scent of Freddie Lounds on himself before visiting Hannibal. When Lecter realizes what Will has done, his heart breaks and Hannibal dares

'Trailer Park Boys 3: Don't Legalize It': Ricky, Julian and Bubbles Encourage You To Go See It (Video)

  • Moviefone
Canada's favourite trio is back on the big screen with "Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It," and it's almost like they never left us.

After taking a brief hiatus from the world of cinema, Ricky, Julian and Bubbles have returned to tell the story of how they all found their way back to each other. At the start of the movie, things aren't looking good: Bubbles is living under J-Rock's porch, Julian is selling "clean" pee for drug tests, and Ricky is relatively successful with his marijuana grow-op business -- until the Canadian government says they're contemplating legalizing the drug, thus rendering his livelihood obsolete.

Moviefone Canada caught up with the boys at their Toronto hotel to talk about "Don't Legalize It," Toronto Mayor Rob Ford running for re-election, and their thoughts on Justin Bieber's legal troubles.

Meanwhile, the dope growing business run by 'Ricky' is under a major threat when the government announces a plan to legalize marijuana, so he heads to Ottawa to make an impassioned plea - in the way only Ricky can - 'Say No to Decriminalization'.
