Crime-flick love story as Pop-conscious as Wright’s earlier work but unironic about its romantic core, it'll delight director’s fans and connect easily at multiplex
At the South By Southwest festival in Austin, "Game of Thrones" showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss took the stage for a panel moderated by the Sisters Stark, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams. Since the second-to-last season will premiere in July, the big question on everyone’s minds is: Will there be a spinoff — and if so, when? As Benioff put it, “The characters who maybe will survive — there’s always going to be this temptation to keep doing it … to do the spinoff show or do the sequel show and everything."
Linklater indulges his characters’ antics with such wild, free-flowing affection that you might miss the thoughtful undertow of this delightful movie: Few filmmakers have so fully embraced the bittersweet joy of living in the moment — one that’s all the more glorious because it fades so soon. The double-punctuated title is not only a reference to a classic song by Van Halen (one of many artists crowding the wall-to-wall soundtrack, including Blondie, the Knack and the Sugarhill Gang), but also an affirmation of the appetites — for sex, for fame, for victory, for sex — that course through these young men’s veins.
Over the course of its eight-year run on HBO, the TV series Entourage captured one of the ultimate American alpha-male fantasies: rolling around Hollywood like you owned it. In the cinematic continuation of where we left off when the series ended in 2011, superagent Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) has been promoted to full-blown studio executive, and he’s hired leading man Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) to star in and direct a make-or-break blockbuster.
Entourage, the big-screen spinoff of HBO’s long-running hit series, didn’t screen at last month’s SXSW Film Festival, but its cast and creator swung through Austin to host a party and set the film’s hype machine in motion.
The social media backlash against word that Paul Feig would be directing an all-female version of Ghostbusters was so intense that the filmmaker briefly considered bailing on the reboot. “In the weeks after the announcement about the movie, I was so inundated with hate, that I almost went, ‘Maybe I should just not do this, maybe this is a bad idea.’ Then you go, ‘Wait, think about,’” Feig told Yahoo at the SXSW Festival, where he’s promoting his new comedy Spy (the writer-director also stopped by our headquarters for a Q&A about his Yahoo Screen original series Other Space).
Billy Crystal and Josh Gad play versions of themselves in the meta FX comedy that finds a comedy legend and an up-and-coming star partnering for a late night sketch comedy show.
