‘Future Man’ Review: Seth Rogen’s Zealously Bawdy Hulu Series Riffs on Sci-Fi Classics for New-ish Adventures
In referential narratives, there’s a point where a nod to popular culture becomes so obvious the writers feel the need to specifically acknowledge it. “Community” consistently did this well, crafting individual episodes around known films or TV shows, like “A Fistful of Paintballs” or “Documentary Filmmaking: Redux,” and naming their episodes after the homages (if not directly announcing them in the narrative). But those were one-off spoofs of form as much as function, featuring stylistic touches that served as a tip of the hat to the filmmakers. They were quickly forgotten as the long-term story moved on to another target the next episode.

New 'Tommy' Trailer for James Franco's Stellar 'The Disaster Artist'

"This my movie. And this is my life..." Don't know who Tommy Wiseau is? Meet the man behind it all! A24 has released another new official trailer for James Franco's The Disaster Artist, the film telling the story of infamous filmmaker Tommy Wiseau and his worst-movie-ever-made The Room (released in 2003). This film is going to be a huge hit when it hits theaters, no thanks to Wiseau's infamy. It stars James Franco, who also directs, as Tommy Wiseau, the awkward mastermind behind the totally awful-but-beloved film. The outstanding ensemble cast includes Dave Franco, Seth Rogen, Alison Brie, Zac Efron, Bryan Cranston, Eliza Coupe, Josh Hutcherson, Sharon Stone, Adam Scott, Jason Mantzoukas, Kate Upton, Megan Mullally, Ari Graynor, with an appearance by Judd Apatow. I just saw this at a film festival and very much enjoyed it - here's my review. Don't miss it when it opens in theaters soon.

Josh Hutcherson Leaves Panem Behind For Seth Rogen's Show About "Time Travel and STDs"

  • BuzzSugar
I'm trying to think of a succinct way of describing the plot of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's new TV show, Future Man, starring Josh Hutcherson, and this is all I've got: Hutcherson is a janitor at a lab and ends up traveling back in time with two warriors from the future (who are also somehow in a video game he plays?) to stop his boss at the lab from ever getting herpes. Because the herpes cure his boss eventually discovers goes on to destroy mankind. Mmhmm. As, um, out there as it sounds, the trailer is pretty promising. Not only that, but the cast is killer: Hutcherson, Ed Begley Jr., Happy Endings's Eliza Coupe, Preacher's Derek Wilson, and more. To celebrate the release of the trailer at New York Comic-Con, Rogen tweeted, "Here's the trailer for Future Man, our new TV show about time travel and

Future Man Trailer: Josh Hutcherson's Got Game in 'Insane' Hulu Comedy
You’re not alone if the plot of Hulu’s fantastically fun-looking Future Man sounds an awful lot like that of 1984’s The Last Starfighter. Josh Hutcherson’s janitor by day/gamer by night Josh Futturman makes the same observation when a visitor from 2162 (played by Happy Endings vet Eliza Coupe) explains to him that his favorite video game is actually “a recruitment and training tool sent back in time to find the one person with the skills to save us.”

Future Man: Josh Hutcherson's sci-fi comedy series gets a trailer

Michael Ahr Kirsten Howard Oct 6, 2017

The first official trailer for Future Man, starring Josh Hutcherson, is chock-full of classic science fiction references. Are you in or out?

Imagine a mash-up between The Last Starfighter, Back to the Future, and Terminator, and you’ll have a pretty good idea of the premise behind Hulu’s new time travel comedy, Future Man.

From the minds of Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir, the writers who brought Sausage Party to the big screen, Future Man tells the story of Josh Futturman (Josh Hutcherson of The Hunger Games), a janitor by day/gamer by night who is recruited by mysterious visitors to travel through time in order to prevent the extinction of humanity.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are still waiting to hear if “Preacher” will officially score a Season 3 pickup at AMC (the not-so-secretive decision is that it’s all but guaranteed), but in the meantime they’re gearing up to debut their new Hulu original comedy series, “Future Man.” Combining elements of video game action and 1980s time travel, “Future Man” brings Josh Hutcherson to television and co-stars “Happy Endings” favorite Eliza Coupe and Derek Wilson.

The Fight for Equal Pay: Women, Minorities on TV Still Making Less Than White Men

The Fight for Equal Pay: Women, Minorities on TV Still Making Less Than White Men
July 31 was Black Women’s Equal Pay Day. Actress Yvette Nicole Brown marked the occasion — which recognizes the additional seven months that a black woman, on average, must work to make as much money as a white man does in a year — by swatting down Twitter trolls who claimed calling out the inequity was unnecessary.

“I found out that as a series regular I was making just a smidge over what a white man was making as a Guest star,” Brown wrote, sharing a disturbing discovery she made at one point in her career. “Dude was just visiting.”

Pay in Hollywood is a reliable topic of gossip but has seldom been talked about so openly. That’s changing. The earnings gap that separates female and minority performers from their often better-compensated white male counterparts has recently catalyzed public discussion — and public negotiations. As performers and their agents drag pay inequality into the light, studios

Physically “Naked” with Not Much Steam to Run On

(Aotn) There’s something about some of Marlon Wayans’ career choices this decade that could understandably be seen as “frustrating.” The youngest of the Wayans brothers has demonstrated a great knack for physical comedy (the first two entries in the Scary Movie franchise and even the goofy yet riotous White Chicks) and an equally impressive potential as a serious actor (his dramatic turn in Requiem for a Dream), but his latest – the declining Haunted House movies and the abysmal Fifty Shades of Black, which actually managed to make the series it’s spoofing look like Last Tango in Paris by comparison – are a an embarrassing nose dive in comedic standard. Enter Michael TiddesNaked, not the 1993 Cannes winner by Mike Leigh, Netflix’s latest comedic offering and a breath of stale air that actually manages to find a hint of freshness and showcase some of the good qualities of Mr.

Hulu’s Future Man (releasing all episodes on Tuesday, Nov. 14) makes quite a splash in its series premiere — and TVLine’s Michael Ausiello needs to get to the bottom of it. The sci-fi comedy, from executive producer Seth Rogen, stars Hunger Games alum Josh Hutcherson as a “dope” janitor who, as he describes, “travels through time trying to save all of humanity.” And in the pilot, his character can be seen, shall we say, releasing a bodily fluid, which makes contact with Preacher‘s Derek Wilson.

‘Future Man’ Cast, Creators Pay Tribute to Glenne Headly: ‘She’s Like a Ball of Light’
The cast and creators of “Future Man” honored the late Glenne Headly at the TCA summer press tour on Thursday.

“We were reeling emotionally,” showrunner Ben Karlin said. “She was a big part of the show…We didn’t have to do that much rewrting. It was less of a production challenge and more of an emotional challenge to deal with something like that.”

“It just sucks,” executive producer Seth Rogen added.

“She’s like a ball of light,” series co-star Eliza Coupe said. “Any room she walked into she lit it up.”

Future Man” producer Sony Pictures Television previously said Headly’s role would not be recast but that she would remain in the episodes completed so far.
