Billy Eichner is truly one-of-a-kind. His brand of humor is unique, and his Billy On The Street series is one of the greatest things to ever exist.
And now he’s taking his talents to the big screen with the upcoming gay rom-com, Bros. Billy wrote the film and stars in it as a character named Bobby Leiber: a highly successful gay man who tries to run away from love, only experiencing unfulfilling hookups through dating apps.
But then, it all changes when he meets a special someone, played by Luke Macfarlane. The movie is a major milestone as it is the first gay romantic comedy from a major studio featuring an entirely LGBTQ principal cast.
The movie was directed by Nicholas Stoller, and it should be a pretty big hit. Universal Studios released the film’s first trailer, so you can check it out below.
Bros will hit theaters September 30, 2022. In addition to Eichner and Macfarlane, the flick stars Bowen Yang, Jim Rash and Guillermo Diaz.
Everyone has been waiting for the upcoming thriller ‘Where The Crawdads Sing‘ after loving the book, which was featured in Oprah’s bookclub. The novel was a huge success. It has sold over 12 million copies, making it one of the best selling books of all time.
And now Hollywood is hoping to get a taste of that success. This movie stars Daisy Edgar-Jones and Harris Dickinson.
Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the ‘Marsh Girl’ haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.
The studio is taking a chance by releasing this project in the middle of summer, going up against some pretty huge blockbuster films. It’s currently set to hit theaters on July 15, 2022, which will have it battling out Thor: Love and Thunder and Jordan Peele’s upcoming horror flick, Nope, the following week.
Check out the latest trailer for ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ below.
Netflix just dropped the first trailer for the comedic psychological thriller ‘Spiderhead’ starring Chris Hemsworth, Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett.
The film was directed by Joseph Kosinski, who is set to have a pretty hot summer with the upcoming release of his other film, Top Gun: Maverick.
Spiderhead stars Hemsworth as the visionary owner of a state-of-the-art penitentiary.
Where inmates wear a surgically attached device that administers dosages of mind-altering drugs, in exchange for commuted sentences. There are no bars, no cells or orange jumpsuits. In Spiderhead, incarcerated volunteers are free to be themselves. Until they’re not. At times, they’re a better version. Need to lighten up? There’s a drug for that. At a loss for words? There’s a drug for that, too.
Gotta be honest, I’m confused already, but we’re sure the movie will do a better job of explaining everything.
‘Deadpool’ writers Paul Wernick & Rhett Reese wrote the script based on George Saunders’ New Yorker short story, Escape from Spiderhead.
Spiderhead is set to premiere on Netflix on June 17. Check out the trailer below…
It’s a good day. Paramount+ released the first trailer for the upcoming comedy film, Jerry & Marge Go Large, starring Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening.
The dramedy, which is directed by Academy Award winner David Frankel, is inspired by a pretty incredible true story of retiree Jerry Selbee and his wife Marge.
Jerry discovers a mathematical loophole in the Massachusetts lottery and, with the help of his wife, Marge (Bening), wins millions, using the money to revive their small Michigan town.
The flick also stars Larry Wilmore, Rainn Wilson and Michael McKean. ‘Jerry & Marge Go Large’ is set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 15, 2022. It’ll then be released on June 17 in the U.S. on Paramount+.
Filming went down in July of 2021, so there was a pretty quick turnaround here. Sad it won’t get a theatrical release, but it should be a good movie to stream on a slow weekend.
Universal and Dreamworks just dropped the first trailer for Jo Koy’s ‘Easter Sunday‘ film, which is set around a family gathering to celebrate Easter Sunday.
This marks the comedian’s first feature film role and is supposed to be a love letter to the Filipino community. It’s the first studio film to star an all-Filipino main cast. Jimmy O. Yang, Tia Carrere, Brandon Wardell, Rodney To, Eugene Cordero, Jay Chandrasekhar and Tiffany Haddish will be joining Koy.
The trailer shows how Koy draws from both personal experience and his standup comedy routine, as it features Koy’s on-screen mother commenting on how he should have been a lawyer. Another family moment reveals how they all have the same ATM pin number in honor of Filipino-American boxer Manny Pacquiao’s birthday. Haddish plays a cop who tells Koy, ‘Me and your dad used to be real intimate back in the day.’
The flick was directed by Chandrasekhar based on a script written by Ken Cheng. Universal Pictures holds U.S. distribution rights.
It’s set to open August 5, 2022. Check out the trailer below…
The biopic genre is about to get real weird with the upcoming film, Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.
The movie was filmed last year in Los Angeles. News broke when people noticed Daniel Radcliffe walking around town sporting a frizzy-haired wig and a pretty epic mustache. The ‘Harry Potter‘ actor stars in this movie as “Weird Al” Yankovic.
Roku released the first teaser trailer for the film this week, and yes, it features an accordion.
The movie is billed as a ‘untold true story’ of Yankovic, documenting ‘Weird Al’s’ rise to fame with early hits like ‘Eat It’ and ‘Like a Surgeon’ — as well as his ‘torrid celebrity love affairs and famously depraved lifestyle.’ It’s really more of a scripted mockumentary, spoofing tropes that run rampant in self-important biopics.
Of course a Weird Al biopic would be a parody of the genre itself. Would he really have it any other way?
In addition to Radcliffe, this flick stars Evan Rachel Wood, Rainn Wilson, Julianne Nicholson and Toby Huss.
It’ll stream on the Roku Channel this fall, but no specific release date has been set as of yet. We’ll keep you posted.
A new horror film titled ‘Dashcam‘ will surely spark some heated debate online, thanks in large part to its subject matter.
The movie is set during the early days of the pandemic, and follows an “indulgent and self-deluded improv musician” who steals her ex-band mate’s car and makes the wrong decision to give a ride to an elderly woman who is not what she seems.
According to the reports, this found footage horror flick is about a “noxious pandemic denier,” so that will probably raise some eyebrows.
Dashcam was produced by Jason Blum and Douglas Cox. Rob Savage directed the film, based on a script he co-wrote with Gemma Hurley and Jed Shepherd.
The indie horror flick stars Annie Hardy, Amar Chadha-Patel and Seylan Baxter. It’s scheduled to hit select theaters and be released on demand on June 3.
Dark comedies are the best comedies, and A24 is hoping to deliver a good one with the upcoming feature Bodies Bodies Bodies, starring Amandla Stenberg, Pete Davidson, Rachel Sennott and Lee Pace.
The movie was directed by Halina Reijn, and is described as a fresh and funny look at backstabbing, fake friends, and a party that goes very wrong.
It watches as a game goes awry, when a group of rich 20-somethings arrive for a hurricane party at a remote family mansion.
Sarah DeLappe wrote the script, which was based on a story by Kristen Roupenian. The movie had its world premiere at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival, where it received mostly positive reviews. It currently sits at an impressive 82 rating on MetaCritic, but that will likely drop once more reviews come in.
Bodies Bodies Bodies is set to hit theaters on August 5, 2022, and it should be an entertaining ride. No doubt about it.
If you’re in the mood for a raunchy queer rom-com, well, we have some good news for you.
Hulu has released the first full trailer for the upcoming film, Fire Island, starring Bowen Yang and Joel Kim Booster. They star in the film as two gay best friends who take a trip to the Pines, a hamlet on New York’s Fire Island that’s a hot spot for queer culture.
Over the course of their vacation, they party with friends and develop flirtations with two other, significantly wealthier vacationers, Will (Conrad Ricamora) and Charlie (James Scully).
The movie also stars Margaret Cho, Nick Adams and Matt Rogers. Booster wrote the script, which was directed by Andrew Ahn, who previously directed Driveways and Spa Night.
Booster had this to say about the film during an interview with Vanity Fair…
I want people — especially gay men, especially queer people — to walk away from the movie happy that they’re gay. I think that there are so many movies about the gay experience that are fraught with people who are unsure if they’re happy being gay or struggling with coming out… I want people to come away from this movie feeling the joy of our experiences and that it’s not all tragic. There are many of us out here living our lives joyfully.
Fire Island is set to premiere on Hulu on June 3, 2022. Check out the trailer below…
Christina Ricci is making a grand return to the horror genre in the upcoming film, Monstrous. The 42-year-old actress stars in the flick, which was directed by Chris Sivertson. He knows a thing or two about horror films, considering he directed I Know Who Killed Me and All Cheerleaders Die.
Monstrous features a woman named Laura (played by Ricci) who has been left traumatized by an abusive relationship.
She finally runs away from her former husband with her seven-year-old son Cody. But in their new, idyllic and remote sanctuary, they find they have another, bigger and more terrifying monster to deal with…one that will test both their mental health issues to the limit.
Colleen Camp co-stars in the film, which promises to be full of twists, so you know, hopefully they deliver. They are describing this a thriller-horror.
It’s scheduled to be released inside select theaters as well as on demand on May 13, 2022. And for what it’s worth, the few critics who have watched it, have returned with mostly positive reviews.
