Boom! announces Wet Hot American Summer original graphic novel

Boom! Studios has announced that writer Christopher Hastings (Gwenpool) and artist Noah Hayes (Goldie Vance) are set to deliver the first-ever graphic fiction tie-in to Wet Hot American Summer, with an original graphic novel featuring your favorite characters from Camp Firewood in an all-new story.

“This is such a wonderful and unexpected crossing of my comedy nerdom, and my standard issue comic book nerdom, and I think it will be for readers as well,” said Chris Hastings. “I’ve watched the movie more times than I can count, and I also happen to be a comic book writer who for the life of me, cannot write a somber story. I’ve been looking out for new character interactions that we haven’t seen before, new things to do with spoofing camp movie culture, and I’m also bringing a lot to this from my own time working as a teen camp counselor.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux Split: Relive Their Romance Through the Years
This celeb split cuts deep.  There was a universal "Say it ain't so!" screamed from the rooftops as Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux announced their separation on Thursday. "In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation," the A-list couple told E! News in a statement. "This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.

Trailer Watch: Toni Collette Is Haunted by Her Mother in Sundance Hit “Hereditary”

“Hereditary”

“My mother was a very secretive and private woman,” Annie (Toni Collette) eulogizes in the trailer for “Hereditary.” “She was a very difficult woman, which maybe explains me.”

The strained relationship between Annie and her late mother, Ellen, weighs heavily on everyone in Ari Aster’s feature directorial debut. While Annie muses about her mom’s “private rituals [and] private friends,” her daughter (Milly Shapiro) becomes obsessed with death, and her son (Alex Wolff) starts experiencing intense, inexplicable seizures. Is it possible that Ellen’s ghost is haunting the family? Or did the matriarch pass down some terrible, all too real genetic trait that’s just now expressing itself?

In 2000 Collette received an Oscar nomination for her supporting role in “The Sixth Sense.” Her other credits include “United States of Tara,” “Enough Said,” and “Fun Mom Dinner.” Collette is currently filming “Wanderlust,” a family drama from Netflix and BBC One.

Sundance Film Review: ‘A Futile and Stupid Gesture’

Sundance Film Review: ‘A Futile and Stupid Gesture’
A Futile and Stupid Gesture” is a cheesy, slapdash, semi-tongue-in-cheek biopic that purports to be about a lot of things — the creation of The National Lampoon, the weirdly haunted soul of its co-founder, Douglas C. Kenney, the rise of comedy in America in the 1970s. But the only aspect of it that I found I could focus on with even a modicum of interest was Will Forte’s sideburns.

Forte has been made up to look like Kenney, a charismatically screwy hippie materialist Wasp bad boy, the way he might have if this were a 10th-grade play. He wears a wig of stringy long hair that never, ever looks like anything but a wig, and he sports the sideburns of the era — long and shaggy, more beef jerky than mutton-chop. But these, too, are transparently fake, and all I could think was: Isn’t this supposed to be, like, a movie? Couldn’t Forte

‘A Futile and Stupid Gesture’ Review: David Wain’s Netflix Comedy About ‘National Lampoon’ Is Perfectly Described by its Title — Sundance 2018

It’s hard to talk about “A Futile and Stupid Gesture” — a somewhat funny and largely conventional movie about a very funny and wholly unconventional man — without talking about the film’s borderline-insane framing device. If you know absolutely nothing about “National Lampoon” co-founders Doug Kenney (Will Forte) and Henry Beard (Domhnall Gleeson), and would like to keep it that way until David Wain’s biopic can illuminate you on its own terms, consider this a reluctant spoiler warning. For everybody else… well, it’s certainly a choice.

Here’s the gist: Adapted from Josh Karp’s book of the same name, “A Futile and Stupid Gesture” retraces the true story of how two subversive Harvard grads took the road less traveled, started the most dangerous satirical magazine in American history, and became ground zero for a generation of comics that included the likes of Bill Murray and Gilda Radner.

Film Review: ‘Please Stand By’

Film Review: ‘Please Stand By’
“Do you know how hard it is to write something? All the thinking and planning and rewriting … because the story you want to tell means so much to you.” If we were to accuse Ben Lewin’s “Please Stand By” of a cunning it doesn’t otherwise display, we might think this impassioned speech, uttered by the film’s intrepid autistic heroine, might be a kind of sly safeguard against harsher critical judgments. After all, there’s no denying the strenuously decent motivations behind this kitten-soft story of obstacles surmounted, limitations exceeded and quirks winsomely mined.

In fact intentions this good, and executions this solidly indie, used to pave the way to Sundance, as they did with Lewin’s far superior last film, the award-winning “The Sessions.” So it’s perhaps its own kind of critique, and a reflection of the changing times with which “Please Stand By” feels curiously out of step, that this Lewin

Jordan Peele quits acting to focus on directing

After making his feature directorial debut last year with the acclaimed horror-thriller Get Out, Jordan Peele has now decided to quit acting in order to focus solely on his directing career.

Daniel Day-Lewis and I are both out (laughing),” Peele told Entertainment Weekly. “Acting is just nowhere near as fun for me as directing.”

Peele initially rose to stardom alongside his comedy partner Keegan-Michael Key both on Mad TV and their own sketch series Key & Peele. The duo also produced and starring in the 2016 action comedy Keanu, while Peele’s other acting credits include roles in Wanderlust and Fargo, as well as numerous voice roles both in film and television.

Last year’s Get Out scored both critical acclaim and commercial success, grossing over $250 million worldwide from a budget of just $4.5 million. As yet, there’s been no word as to his follow-up directorial effort, but he is currently producing Spike Lee’s Black Klansman,

‘The Lego Ninjago Movie’ Review: Warner Bros. Keeps Building the World’s Most Consistently Great Animated Franchise

‘The Lego Ninjago Movie’ Review: Warner Bros. Keeps Building the World’s Most Consistently Great Animated Franchise
You probably know what Lego are, and you probably know who Batman is (don’t say “Bruce Wayne, Gotham’s billionaire playboy”), and that brand awareness helped to propel 2015’s “The Lego Movie” and this February’s “The Lego Batman Movie” into massive hits that transcended their target audience, appealing equally to adults and children alike. On the other hand — and this is a scientific fact — not a single person who’s gone through puberty has ever heard of “Ninjago.” Ninjas? Sure. The concept of going? Absolutely. But “Ninjago”? That’s definitely not a real thing, let alone a popular line of toys that’s spawned graphic novels, video games, and a television show that’s now been on the air for six full seasons.

And yet, Warner Bros. continues to insists otherwise, the studio inexplicably dedicating the pivotal third film of their massive Lego movie franchise to a property

Justin Theroux Isn't in 'Competition' With Wife Jennifer Aniston

Justin Theroux doesn't see his wife Jennifer Aniston as "competition".

The couple - who starred alongside each other in 2012's 'Wanderlust' - might be in the same field of work, but the 45-year-old screenwriter-and-actor says they don't see one another as a threat, although it might be different if they were going up against each other for the same role.

Justin told the latest issue of Esquire magazine: "She's successful for a reason ... We're not in competition.

"If I was competing for the same job as her, I might be less forgiving."

The dark-haired hunk married the 48-year-old former 'Friends' star in 2015, and he says being catapulted into the limelight hasn't been an easy ride, but his friend advised him to think of it as having another persona who is the butt of rumours.

When asked his tips for a happy marriage, he refused to give any out

Justin Theroux Not Threatened by Jennifer Aniston's Success
It's hard to match Jennifer Aniston's star power. And that's just fine with Justin Theroux. In Esquire's May issue, he admits he's "not at all" threatened by her achievements. "She's successful for a reason...We're not in competition." After a pause, he jokes, "If I was competing for the same job as her, I might be less forgiving." Fortunately, the couple—who met through Robert Downey Jr. on the set of 2008's Tropic Thunder and co-starred in 2012's Wanderlust—want to act together again. Acting cagey, Theroux teases, "We were talking about an idea I had that we might start to develop together." Recently, The Leftovers actor has...

Jennifer Aniston Only Likes Justin Theroux's Beard "Up to a Point"

Jennifer Aniston Only Likes Justin Theroux's Beard
Jennifer Aniston isn't into the "serial killer" look. When Justin Theroux appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday, Ellen DeGeneres noticed he was sporting some scruff. It reminded her of the first time they met, when he had a bushy beard for his role in Wanderlust (co-starring his future wife). In 2012, Aniston told Pop Sugar she'd met Theroux in 2008 and initially thought he was a "very dark" person. "At first you think he could be like a serial killer," she said, "but he is actually the nicest person in the world." Theroux explained the reason for his facial hair's resurgence Monday. "I grew it back for The Leftovers Season 3," he told the daytime host....

You Can Actually Watch Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux Fall For Each Other
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been together for more than five years now, and in their time together, they've managed to squeeze in more cute moments than some of Hollywood's longest-standing couples. While they are very protective of their private life, they also aren't afraid to hit the red carpet together and gush about each other in interviews - something we hope they always do. It's been easy to follow along with their love story, especially since it began - like many couples in Hollywood - on a movie set, which means you can actually watch them fall for each other with your own eyes. Jen and Justin first met in 2007 on the set of Tropic Thunder, which was cowritten by Justin and starred Jen's good friend Ben Stiller. "I thought he was very sweet and he was always very nice," she said. "But I remember thinking he was very dark.

Justin Theroux is one of Hollywood's most interesting stars.

The writer/actor never became quite as famous as many of his peers, but he was always making very interesting choices and working with some of the best filmmakers in the business, namely David Lynch, who the actor frequently has collaborated with.

He recently shot to the forefront, mostly because of his very high profile relationship with actress Jennifer Aniston, and his current leading role on the under-seen and incredible HBO series "The Leftovers". Apart from this, Theroux has flown under the radar for a large part of his career, but we were one of the few paying attention.

This October, Theroux will co-star alongside Emily Blunt in the highly anticipated thriller The Girl on the Train,

Jennifer Aniston has been in countless movies, so picking your favorite one may be a bit difficult. However, we decided to put hubby Justin Theroux up to the task when we caught up with him at The Girl on the Train junket earlier today, and when he gave us his answer, we found ourselves a bit surprised. "Oh God, what's my favorite Jen movie?," Theroux repeated while thinking of his answer. "I think Cake," he responded, "not just because it was her most recent one. I loved her in Good Girl, and her comedies are fabulous. Loved her in Wanderlust...She's always so present and good." While Jen's performance in Cake was undeniable, many would have probably assumed Wanderlust...

Bad Moms review – bawdy matriarchs stick it to the PTA

Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn and Kristen Bell shine in this lewd but safe comedy from the writers of The Hangover that sees what happens when stressed-out mothers cut loose

Let us take a moment to give thanks to whichever deity watches over cinema for the gift of Kathryn Hahn. Ms Hahn, known more from television shows like Parks and Recreation and Transparent has popped up in comedies like Anchorman and Wanderlust as well as strong but esoteric indies like Afternoon Delight. We’ve already counted on her to take whatever she’s in and make it better. But with Carla, the baddest of the bad moms in Jon Lucas and Scott Moore’s new raunchy comedy Hahn delivers a performance that secures her position as one of the most electrifying performers on the scene today. Like a mix of Sandra Bernhard and John Belushi, Hahn’s Carla is a foul-mouthed force of nature,
