Back in January, Comedy Central announced that they had picked up Moonbeam City, an animated Miami Vice-style parody from Funny or Die and Conan writer Scott Gairdner, and the first trailer is now online. Starring Rob Lowe, Elizabeth Banks, Will Forte, and Kate Mara as a team of undercover cops with wonderfully tacky names, Moonbeam City looks like the perfect show for Lisa Frank fans and gritty cop drama fans alike and is slated to premiere in spring 2015.
After making waves at Sundance, getting funded through Indiegogo, and releasing a teaser trailer last month, filmmaker newcomer Justin Simien's Dear White People dropped its first official trailer yesterday. Not only does the trailer make Dear White People look even more promising than before, but it features 100% more Dennis Haysbert AKA the Allstate Insurance guy.
Tommy Wiseau, star and director of the famously bad 2003 film The Room, recently announced via his website that his original sitcom The Neighbors — a project he's been working on since at least 2009 — will drop in September (on "Comedy TV," apparently). Wiseau made a website for the sitcom that includes the kind of description you'd expect, with lines like "This cocktail of characters always guarantee plenty of surprises," "The demographic is all inclusive," and the very specific "The Neighbors is a sitcom about the relationship between a group of neighbors who live in an apartment building." Click through to watch the original trailer.
Bill Murray hasn't played the lead role in a movie since 2012's Hyde Park on Hudson (and since 2005's Broken Flowers before that), so it's a rarity to see a movie come along where he's the central character. His next film is St. Vincent, which just dropped its trailer today, and stars Murray as a degenerate guy who takes a well-intentioned neighbor kid under his wing. The supporting cast includes Melissa McCarthy, Chris O'Dowd, Naomi Watts, Scott Adsit, and Nate Corddry, and the movie hits theaters October 24th.
