‘Hangover’ Producer Scott Budnick Forms Good Films, Endeavor is Lead Investor (Exclusive)

Scott Budnick, the producer of “The Hangover” movies and “Old School,” has launched Good Films, a film and TV production company that plans to leverage the movies and shows it makes to effect positive social change. Good Films is in the process of raising a $150 million content fund with Endeavor Content as the lead investor.

TV Critics Share Their Best Interview Experiences — IndieWire Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Which is the interview you are proudest of? Not only who you got to speak to, but how the interaction and final product turned out.

Pilot Viruet (@pilotbacon), Freelance

My immediate thought was this interview with Stone Cold Steve Austin, who I was obsessed with as a child and who still remains in my top three wrestlers. He was kind and insightful, but most of my favorite excerpts are from after the official interview, when we just chatted about politics and writing styles — a lovely surprise from a guy who is perhaps best known for dumping beer on his own head! But I’m most proud

‘Game Over, Man!’ Trailer: ‘Workaholics’ Crew Takes Down Terrorists to Save Shaggy in Netflix Comedy — Watch

Four creators of “Workaholics” — which ended its seven-season Comedy Central run in 2017 — are reuniting this spring on Netflix. Adam Devine (the “Pitch Perfect” franchise), Anders Holm (“The Mindy Project”), and Blake Anderson (“Dope”) star in Kyle Newacheck’s “Game Over, Man!,” an upcoming feature reminiscent of “The Hangover” set in Los Angeles (complete with a trashed hotel room and a blast-from-the-past scene partner, à la Mike Tyson).

In the Holm-penned script, a trio of video game creators watches in horror as party-goers are taken hostage on live television, including their financier and Shaggy, the Jamaican singer of the 2000 hit “It Wasn’t Me,” which serves as the trailer’s soundtrack.

Have You Seen Baby Carlos From The Hangover Lately?

Have You Seen Baby Carlos From The Hangover Lately?
The Hangover will forever remain one of our all-time favorite comedies for a lot of reasons... Zach Galifianakis' character Allan and his many quirks, Stu's song dedicated to Mike Tyson's tiger, Mr. Chow and, of course, baby Carlos. In case you forgot, the three-best-friends-that-anyone-could-have found the baby in their hotel closet after a wild night out in Las Vegas. Unable to recollect the evening's events, they have to take the baby along with them, naming him Carlos (though his real name was Tyler). It turns out, Carlos ended up being the baby of the stripper Stu married at a Vegas chapel—of course, without remembering it. The baby's real-life name is Grant...

What We Learned from the 2017 Box Office

What We Learned from the 2017 Box Office
The end of each year is often a time for reflection, as we look back on the year that was before we get ready to turn the page on a brand new year. When it comes to the movies, there's more than enough to reflect on, with countless amounts of "hot takes" starting to surface, including lists of the top 10 movies, but this year, we thought we'd try a different approach as well. Given how unique a year 2017 was at the box office, we decided to delve back through the year that was, and pick out the top 10 most interesting trends that developed among audiences this year, some of which could have quite the big impact on the movie industry for many years to come.

While the top 10 for this year isn't officially set in stone yet, since it's only a matter of time before Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The Last Word on ‘War Dogs’

War Dogs‘ is that rare based on a true story movie that seems to be desperately trying to be like other based on a true story movies, in this case; it’s apparent goal is to be a combination of a comedic version of ‘Lord of War‘ mixed with the energy and style of ‘The Wolf of Wall Street‘ and ‘The Big Short‘, only without the comedic aspects of,-, well, actually all three of those movies are pretty funny when you think about it. And I especially couldn’t help comparing the film to ‘Lord of War‘ and that’s where the film falters. It’s still interesting and well-made enough to be entertaining and good, but I think they were going for comedy, and honestly, above everything else, I didn’t laugh that much.

Although to be honest, Todd Phillips has honestly, never particularly made me laugh, and

The Roughest Nights in Film

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Luke Walpole

We’ve all had nights which we wish we could forget. Or, to put it more prosaically, nights which we’ve completely forgotten (nothing to do with that last shot, of course). But when an evening heads south on the big screen, the characters often have more than an impending hangover to worry about.

Except in The Hangover, of course, but that’s a law unto itself.

Lucia Aniello’s debut feature Rough Night reunites a group of college friends ten years after graduation for a raucous hen night. Ten years older, but perhaps not ten years wiser, the group seize the opportunity to reclaim their youth and the bachelorette party begins in full swing. Then a stripper is called, things get our of hand and suddenly the group are in for a very different night out.

Ed Helms' Comedy Central Special Satirizes Trump's "Fake News"

Ed Helms took shots at the preponderance of "fake news" accusations on Wednesday night with his hourlong Comedy Central special The Fake News with Ted Nelms. 

The special took a satirical look at the news, with false and often preposterous news stories being read onscreen by Helms' fake journalist alter ego, Ted Nelms. Helms, although known of late for his roles in films such as ChappaquiddickVacation and The Hangover series and for TV shows such as The Office and The Muppets, also worked for Comedy Central's The Daily Show in the early 2000s as a correspondent. 

President Trump has frequently lamented "fake news" portrayals of him and his administration, giving rise to the...

Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of Father Figures In St. Louis

Owen Wilson (“The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Zoolander 2”) and Ed Helms (“The Hangover” films, “We’re the Millers”) star in the Alcon Entertainment comedy “Father Figures,” marking the directorial debut of veteran cinematographer Lawrence Sher (“The Hangover” films).

Wilson and Helms are Kyle and Peter Reynolds, brothers whose eccentric mother raised them to believe their father had died when they were young. When they discover this to be a lie, they set out together to find their real father, and end up learning more about their mother than they probably ever wanted to know.

The film also stars J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”), comedian Katt Williams, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback-turned-actor Terry Bradshaw, Ving Rhames (the “Mission Impossible” films), Harry Shearer (“The Simpsons”), and Oscar nominee June Squibb (“Nebraska”), with Oscar winner Christopher Walken (“The Deer Hunter”), and Oscar nominee Glenn Close (“Albert Nobbs,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) as the twins’ mother.

Ed Helms Returns to Comedy Central With a Mission: Making ‘Fake News’ Fake Again — Turn It On Podcast

Ed Helms Returns to Comedy Central With a Mission: Making ‘Fake News’ Fake Again — Turn It On Podcast
It took “fake news” to bring Ed Helms back to Comedy Central. Since leaving “The Daily Show” in 2006, Helms has found plenty of success as a comedic actor in both TV and film, starting with “The Office,” and then, of course, “The Hangover” trilogy and a successful voice over career in animated hits like “The Lorax” and “Captain Underpants.”

But Helms missed his time satirizing the news, especially given his experience working alongside legendary talent like Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Samantha Bee, and many more. Now he’s back behind the desk, at least for one night, as the fictional host of Comedy Central’s “The Fake News with Ted Nelms.”

“I’ve just been missing being a part of the media commentary world ever since I left ‘The Daily Show,’ Helms said. “I really feel back in the saddle in a way. It’s really scratching that itch.

Perspective Look At The 12 Strong Movie – Chris Hemsworth And Michael Shannon Star

By Marc Butterfield (Analyst, freelance writer, veteran)

Until 1979, most of the modern world had never heard of Afghanistan as little more than a spot on a globe in the library. In that year, the Soviet Union sent special forces commandos in to raid the royal residence and kill the occupants, installing a puppet government. From that point forward, as a people and a place, they have rarely been Out of the news. To the British empire, Afghanistan was well known, but as Americans, we were ignorant of it. In fact, almost any country that has every tried to tame the Afghan territory has failed, and almost always after long, expensive, bloody campaigns. The lesson of futility was learned time and again.

Then, because of the Taliban, a product of soviet invasion and American intervention, acting as hosts of Al Qaeda, Afghanistan once again was put on the radar of the American people.

We had to start our list with Martin Scorsese’s gambling masterpiece. This has everything you need in a casino film with Robert De Niro very impressive as the guy from the mob who takes over a Las Vegas gambling establishment.
