Rough Night Red Band Trailer Offers Up Women Behaving Badly

Rough Night, a raunchy, “wild night” effort that is perhaps something like the Bad Moms for The Hangover fans, gives us a very different arena for Scarlett Johansson. The rest of the cast, who are hilarious, are playing closer to their comfort zone than Johansson, who we’ve grown accustomed to watching beating the hell out of someone.

That makes this a somewhat more important venture than might be assumed because it could easily become a film that shows her versatility, or highlights the fact that she can only stray so far from the kinds of films that have put her on top of the box office money list.

If we can believe the trailer is an accurate look at things, she seems to hold her own, and while this could ultimately be a bit of trainwreck that isn’t as funny as it thinks it is, at this point,

The Zookeeper’s Wife — Directed by Niki Caro; Written by Angela Workman

The real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II. In 1939 Poland, Antonina Żabińska (Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński (Johan Heldenbergh), have the Warsaw Zoo flourishing under his stewardship and her care. When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned and forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck (Daniel Brühl).

Carrie Pilby”: Tiff

Carrie Pilby (Bel Powley) is a genius who graduated Harvard at 18. Convinced that the world is populated by oversexed hypocrites, she has a hard time making sense of life as it relates to morality, relationships, sex, and leaving her apartment. In an effort to coax Carrie out of her shell, her psychiatrist (Nathan Lane), makes a deceptively simple checklist of goals for her to achieve between Thanksgiving and the year’s end. Each goal brings Carrie closer to the understanding that humans, like books, can’t be judged by their covers. (Press materials)

When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people’s minds and control them, Major is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major discovers that she has been lied to: her life was not saved, it was stolen.

While the girls experience increasingly strange and creepy occurrences at the isolated school, we cross cut to another story — that of Joan (Emma Roberts), a troubled young woman on the road, who, for unknown reasons, is determined to get to Bramford as fast as she can. As Joan gets closer to the school, Kat becomes plagued by progressively intense and horrifying visions, with Rose doing her best to help her new friend as she slips further and further into the grasp of an unseen evil force.

When she begins spying on Alexander (Sam Reid), an idealistic Communist politician, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with him. Her choice between love and duty leads to a nail-biting conclusion that Alexander can only unravel decades later in 1990s New York. His journey back to the snowbound streets of Moscow uncovers a love triangle and betrayals from those he trusted most. (Press materials)

All This Panic (Documentary) — Directed by Jenny Gage

All This Panic

All This Panic” takes an intimate look at the interior lives of a group of teenage girls as they come of age in Brooklyn. A potent mix of vivid portraiture and vérité, we follow the girls as they navigate the ephemeral and fleeting transition between childhood and adulthood. Shot over a three-year period in a lush and cinematic style, “All This Panic” is a meditation on the mysterious, often painful, yet ultimately exhilarating period of a teen’s life. In a world where, as one teen remarks, “they want to see us, but they don’t want to hear us,” this film is comprised entirely of young women speaking to their own experiences. (Press materials)

On the constant brink of starvation, Ann leads an isolated and regimented life. Haunted by memories of her past, she also battles the current bloodthirsty threat that lurks just outside of the forest’s borders. When her food stores run dangerously low Ann must make the desperate journey into a nearby town to forage for any remaining food. During one of these raids, a chance encounter brings Olivia (Gina Piersanti), a teenage girl, and her injured stepfather, Chris (Adam David Thompson), into Ann’s life and regimen of survival.

For nearly four months, Linda Bishop, a prisoner of her own mind, survived on apples and rain water, waiting for God to save her, during one of the coldest winters on record. As her story unfolds from different perspectives, including her own, we learn about our systemic failure to protect those who cannot protect themselves. (Press materials)

Along the way, his eyes are opened to the similar struggles of his own roommates and those around him.

Abortion: Stories Women Tell (Documentary) — Directed by Tracy Droz Tragos (Premieres April 3 on HBO)

In 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade recognized the right of every woman in the United States to have an abortion. Since 2011, over half the states in the nation have significantly restricted access to abortions. In 2016, abortion remains one of the most divisive issues in America, especially in Missouri, where only one abortion clinic remains open, patients and their doctors must navigate a 72-hour waiting period, and each year sees more restrictions. Awarding-winning director and Missouri native Tracy Droz Tragos sheds new light on the contentious issue with a focus not on the debate, but rather on the women themselves — those struggling with unplanned pregnancies, the providers who show up at clinics to give medical care, as well as the activists on both sides of the issue hoping to sway decisions and lives.

Throwback Thursday: “Bad Labor – No Coffee Break” Movies

Hollywood is filled with movies honoring working people and labor unions. I like labor unions but not everyone does – and well, labor unions (or union leaders) haven’t always been perfect. On Labor Day, we ran a pro-labor list but to reflect that other viewpoint, this edition of Throwback Thursday focuses on a Labor Behaving Badly list – films about bad or crooked union bosses, strikes gone wrong, workers behaving badly, and even a few anti-union films.

On The Waterfront (1954)

This excellent drama from director Elia Kazan is the gold standard of this kind of film, with a corrupt union boss (Lee J. Cobb) who have become a virtual dictator, treating the union like his own little army to do his bidding. One man, Terry Malone (Marlon Brando), stands up to him and breaks the power of the boss. Bad behavior indeed, and one heck of a good movie.

Last Exit to Brooklyn (1989)

Awkward Star Ashley Rickards Joins The Flash Season 3 As The Top; Captain Cold's Return Set

E! News is reporting that The Flash has cast Ashley Rickards as Rosalind "Rosa" Dillion a.k.a. The Top and she'll make her debut as the extremely dangerous DC Comics villain in the fourth episode of the upcoming third season.  Rickards' iteration will be a new take on The Top, a male character in the comics, but she'll retain the same metahuman abilities, which are to make people's heads spin. Her version will also likely share a fairly intimate relationship with Grey Damon's Mirror Master as she's being teased as the Bonnie to his Clyde. Rickards is best known for her lead role as Jenna Hamilton on MTV's comedy drama series Awkward and has also guest-starred on episodes of Zoey 101, Ugly Betty, One Tree Hill, Entourage, and American Horror Story: Murder House. Her film credits include Fly Away, Sassy PantsA Haunted House 2, and Behaving Badly.

Death Note Movie to Feature Willem Dafoe as the Voice of Ryuk the Shinigami

One of the most indelible images from the Death Note anime series (and the manga it’s based on) is the haunting appearance of the Shinigami Ryuk, a death god visible to Light Turner, the high school student in possession of a notebook with the power to kill. With filming now underway on Adam Wingard’s live-action Death Note movie, the voice of Ryuk has been revealed.

Mashable reports that Willem Dafoe will voice Ryuk in the live-action Death Note film. An official image of Ryuk’s appearance in the new movie has yet to be revealed (the image above is from the 2006–2007 anime adaptation), but it’s likely that we’ll see a CG creation of the curious death god with an appetite for apples.

His unblinking eyes and monstrous features making him a scary sight to behold, Ryuk is an observer of high school student Light, who uses

HBO's 'Vice Principals': School Administrators Behaving Badly

  • Yidio
2016-07-15T10:34:18-07:00Hbo's 'Vice Principals': School Administrators Behaving Badly

HBO's Vice Principals is not a comedy for the current climate of political correctness in America. Actually, Vice Principals is the opposite: a foul-mouthed, foul-tempered satire that pulls no punches in its quest to poke fun at its juvenile-humored characters. That no-holds-barred attitude is proving to be a bit too much for some critics, even as they admit that the series is, at least occasionally, very funny.

Vice Principals is the creation of Danny McBride and Jody Hill, the team behind the similarly raunchy Eastbound and Down, which ran on HBO for four seasons between 2009 and 2013. In Vice Principals, McBride plays Neal Gamby, the vice principal of a South Carolina high school who wants the recently vacated job as principal. He faces competition from Lee Russell (played by Walton Goggins), an equally uncouth adminstrator

Filming Begins on Adam Wingard’s Live-Action Death Note Movie, Premiering on Netflix in 2017

The notebook with grave consequences is back, as filming is officially underway on Adam Wingard's Death Note movie.

Based on Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata's popular manga (which was previously adapted as an anime series and several live-action movies), the new Death Note film stars Nat Wolff as the main character who discovers that if he writes someone's name in his newfound notebook while imagining what they look like, they will die. This otherworldly power allows Wolff's character to play God, and it's up to the mysterious "L" (Keith Stanfield) to put a stop to the bodies hitting the floor.

Death Note is scheduled to premiere on Netflix in 2017. Below, we have the official press release with full details, including Wingard's (The Woods, You're Next) thoughts on the project:

All 27 stars of Skins: Whatever happened to E4's teen tearaways?

Here's one of those 'This'll make you feel old' factoids - it's two years since the last ever episode of Skins aired.

E4's groundbreaking hormone-fest wrapped up on August 5, 2013 - with an older Cook (Jack O'Connell) heading off into an uncertain future at the close of 'Rise (Part Two)'.

Cook was but one of 27 major characters featured on Skins across three 'Generations' - in a total of 61 episodes, split into seven series. But where are the teen tearaways of Roundview College now?

Generation One

1. Nicholas Hoult

Hoult played Tony Stonem - the pre-eminent bad boy of Skins - across its first two series. Later badly hurt in a traffic accident and forced to rely on others, Tony had mellowed by his final episodes.

Now aged 25, Hoult has become a bona-fide Hollywood star with roles in this year's Mad Max: Fury Road and the much-anticipated book adaptations Dark Places and Kill Your Friends.

Sex, lies and cinema by Jennie Kermode

Behaving badly

Not so many years ago – thanks partly to censors and partly to nervous investors – it was hard to find any kind of non-heterosexual content in mainstream cinemas. Now there’s a fair bit of choice for gay men - we’re even starting to see films about men who’re not conventionally good looking – but when it comes to lesbians and bisexual women, the industry lags far behind. Desiree Akhavan’s Appropriate Behaviour is a breath of fresh air. It has proven its ability to impress mainstream audiences and it has heralded the arrival of a major new screenwriting and directing talent.
