Louis C.K. Releases New Poster For His Film ‘I Love You, Daddy’ Starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Charlie Day And John Malkovich

The last time Louis C.K. directed a feature film the year was 2001, and the movie was Pootie Tang. We’re still not sure how exactly that happened, but obviously C.K.’s career has changed dramatically since then. Even though he hasn’t directed a feature film in 16 years, he has directed over 60 episodes of award-winning television.

He’s learned a lot, and we’re sure it’s noticeable in his new film titled I Love You, Daddy. C.K. directed, co-wrote, and stars in this movie as a TV writer, whose spoiled teenage daughter begins spending time with a famed director who is known for dating underage girls.

The movie stars Chloe Grace Moretz, John Malkovich, Pamela Adlon, Charlie Day and Rose Byrne. It will open in New York and Los Angeles on November 17, before being released nationwide on December 1.

It premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last month, and it received mixed reviews from critics. Some called it a “masterful picture,” while others claim it was totally worthless.

Sounds like if you enjoy Louie, you’ll probably like this as well, which is great news for me because I’m a huge fan of the show.

Chloe Grace Moretz And Ansel Elgort Share Intimate Moment Together In Bed In New Clip For Their Film ‘November Criminals’


Ansel Elgort is one of the hottest stars in Hollywood, thanks to his outstanding work in Baby Driver. And if that was the only film he starred in this year, it would have been more than enough.

But Elgort will hit theaters one more time in 2017. The 23-year-old actor co-stars in November Criminals with the talented Chloe Grace Moretz. The film, based on the popular coming-of-age novel by the same name, follows two college bound friends as they go against the authorities to uncover the truth behind their friend’s death.

I’m always down for a coming-of-age movie, and when you combine that with a “thriller” element, well, you’re probably going to have a fan in me.

Of course, there is a chance this movie is terrible. It will be released through video on demand on November 7, 2017. It’ll also have a limited release opening inside select theaters December 8, 2017.

Surprise, Surprise! Louis C.K. Directs First New Movie In 16 Years, Will Premiere At Toronto Film Festival

No one saw this coming. The last time Louis C.K. directed a feature film was back in 2001. He directed Pootie Tang, which doesn’t sound like something that should have happened, but I swear it’s true.

Back in 2012, he talked about the terrible experience at the Television Critics Association winter press tour…

“That experience was very painful, I was sucking at making the movie and got fired off of it, and they put my name on it anyway. But failing at Pootie Tang is one of the reasons for why this show is good. The army of failures I’ve had are the reasons that I’m good at what I’m doing now.”

Now, 16 years later, he’s ready to release a new feature. The project was made “entirely in secret,” and it was shot in 35mm and in black and white. The movie, ‘I Love You, Daddy‘ stars Louis C.K. as “Glen Topher, a successful television producer and writer.”

Chloe Grace Moretz co-stars as his daughter. Helen Hunt, John Malkovich, Rose Byrne and Pamela Aldon also star. It will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival this year. No word on when it will be released to the public, or where it will be released, but we will keep you posted.

Hopefully a few reviews for this film will trickle out of the festival, ’cause right now we don’t know anything about it. But you know what? That’s what Louis wants. It’s basically promoting itself right now.

Chloe Grace Moretz Slams Her Own Movie After Body-Shaming Poster Is Released, Check Out The Poster Causing All The Drama Inside!

Have you heard of the computer-animated movie, Red Shoes and the 7 Dwarfs? Probably not. The film, which is scheduled for a 2018 release, is being produced by South Korean studio Locus Corporation.

In the film, Chloe Grace Moretz voices the main character, Snow White, who starts out overweight but becomes tall and thin when she wears a pair of magical red shoes.

A billboard promoting the film at the Cannes Film Festival last month showed both versions of Snow White. It featured the tall and thin Snow White standing next to the overweight Snow White, with the words, “What if Snow White was no longer beautiful and the 7 Dwarfs not so short?”

Obviously people had a problem with this because the poster is basically saying being overweight is ugly. I mean, if you look at the poster, the only difference between the two characters is their weight.

The studio probably didn’t mean for it to come off that way, but it did to a lot of people. Plus-size model Tess Holiday shared the poster on her Twitter and wrote, “How did this get approved by an entire marketing team? Why is it okay to tell young kids being fat = ugly?”

And she brings up a good question…how did this get approved by an entire marketing team? One thing we know for sure? The cast certainly didn’t approve this message.

Moretz went on her own Twitter account to announce how disappointed she is…

The studio behind the movie sent out an apology and said they were ending the advertising campaign.

“Our film, a family comedy, carries a message designed to challenge social prejudices related to standards of physical beauty in society by emphasizing the importance of inner beauty. We appreciate and are grateful for the constructive criticism of those who brought this to our attention.”

Movie Review – Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising – A Lot More Jokes That Hit The Right Notes than the Original


I did not expect to like Neighbors 2 as much as I did. I’ll admit I enjoyed the first one, but I never felt it needed a sequel. In this case though, the sequel might be better than the original.

The movie starts a few years after the last one. Mac and Kelly are pregnant again and are focusing on raising daughter Stella. In the college close to their neighborhood, new student Morgan has just come from a strict household and is ready to party. While pledging a sorority, she learns that only Fraternities can have parties and sororities are barred from throwing any kind of celebration in their house. Angered and frustrated, Morgan teams up with new pals Beth and Nora to form their own sorority off campus. Their sorority so happens to reside in the same house right next to Mac and Kelly.


I really liked how the sorority girls were portrayed in this movie. That’s a rare thing to say, because so few movies get it right, but this one does. They slip in a bit of social consciousness, making it a bit funnier and a bit smarter than the first. What I liked is the movie addressed inequality between the sexes without getting preachy about it.

Zac Efron returns, and not just as a walk on. Instead, he acts as Morgan’s party mentor, teaching her all the ins and outs of being a binge drinking, hard partying bro. At the same time, he’s dealing with his own issues, as he still has yet to grow up.  Morgan was also an enjoyable character, because she flouted how girls should act and didn’t apologize for it. She’s a bit more empathetic than Efron was in the original.

Lisa Kudrow, Kelsey Grammar and Dave Franco all had walk on cameos that didn’t feel superfluous, even though this movie was a clear cash grab. They made such a good choice in the cameos, using people with pitch perfect comedic timing, that it worked beautifully. For that, I’ll forgive the cash grab.


Neighbors 2 has a lot more jokes that hit the right notes than the original. Adding Chloe Grace Mortez to the cast rounded out the laughs, because the girl has a gift for blue humor. She’s probably the funniest, truest to life character I’ve seen in a comedy of this nature, which is really what makes Neighbors 2 work so much more.

That being said, Seth Rogan really didn’t do it for me in this movie. He kind of faded into the background and got less laughs than the other characters. I felt like there were so many missed opportunities for better jokes and one liners. Honestly, it felt like he ad-libbed his script, but then didn’t have anything funny to say.

This time around, you’ll have a hard time deciding who to root for. A more empathetic villain makes this movie a bit better the second time around, and it packed in a lot more laughs as well. All in all, this, and the original are worth the watch.

Movie Review: The 5th Wave – America Is All ‘Teen Girl Hero-ed’ Out

hero_The-5th-Wave-2016 - 30JAN2016

“When you’re in high school, every day feels like the end of the world,” says Cassie Sullivan, the heroine of “The 5th Wave.” And when your Essa, being forced to sit through the 5th Wave, ever moment feels like an infinity. Let’s get started on this latest YA hit to be made into a movie.

So the 5th Wave focuses on a plucky, determined heroine, who isn’t Katniss Everdeen, but is damn near indistinguishable from Katniss Everdeen…with the exception of being blond. Her species has been decimated by aliens, sending humanity back to the stone age and Cassie Sullivan on the run. She fights through power outages, disease and earthquakes as she struggles to survive.

Know what I always wonder during apocalypse movies? Why? Like, why bother trying to survive? What the hell is the point? So you can spend the next twenty years wandering a barren landscape, in the dark, with no indoor plumbing, before you’re inevitably killed by zombies, aliens or some kind of super-flu? You know my plans for the apocalypse? Suicide. Quick, easy and relatively painless.

But I digress. I was supposed to be talking about this movie. Which I have to admit, is well made. It certainly has a standout star in Chloe Grace Moretz. She’s a compelling intriguing character that’s a bit less prissy than Katniss anyway, so I like that.

The effects are well done, the visuals stunning and it’s a tense, gripping action flick. The direction of J Blakeson shouldn’t be underestimated and I imagine with a better plot, this movie would have been amazing.

But unfortunately, the predetermined, to be expected formula just doesn’t feel new or fresh anymore. When Hunger Games came out, a plucky teenage heroine in an action movie was a treat. Now, it’s a bit tired and a bit overdone. You can see everything coming. Literally every single plot point, from the inevitable love triangle, to the girl coming into her own strength and power, is completely recycled to the point where it’s almost fatiguing.

5th-wave-image09 - 30JAN2016

Also, as a side note there is a tsunami part of the movie that really should have been relocated. Honestly, 5000 people died in Thailand during the 2004 Tsunami. Using that for movie fodder just feels gross.

That, coupled with the poor plot, really didn’t help this movie stand out from anything else offered out there. It’s not lighting up the box office either, having made just $10 million on its opening weekend. While some of that might be due to the winter storm that crippled the East, it has to be said that it just wasn’t that great. It certainly wasn’t terrible and if it had been released ten years ago, it may have been a blockbuster.

But it comes on the heels of the end of a trend. America is all ‘teen girl hero-ed’ out by now and there’s no way to cram another one down, not with the same ridiculous results that The Hunger Games, or even Insurgent, got. As a result, I can’t give this a worth the watch.

Chloe Grace Moretz Reveals She Will Start Underwater Training For Live-Action Little Mermaid Film Next Month


There are several live-action remakes coming our way. It’s hard to figure out which ones you should be excited about, because we all know too much of anything can be dangerous. One of these remakes will fail, but it probably won’t be The Little Mermaid.

The talented Chloe Grace Moretz will star in the upcoming film, and she believes this version of the classic tale will appeal to the young women of today, “a modern, revisionist tale is kind of what we’re going after, and making it progressive for young women in this day and age.” She told Entertainment Tonight.

She also explained that this film will be based more on the original story published back in 1837 as opposed to Disney’s take on it in 1989.

While talking with E! News, the actress admitted to being a little nervous, but also revealed she was “excited to show something that I’ve loved for such a long time and in a different modern light.”

But before filming begins, Moretz will start training underwater next month…

“I’m going to start training underwater in about a month, so we’ll see how I am on that.”

No release date has been announced; however, we have to imagine that will change soon with training and filming starting after the holidays. We’ll keep you posted.

Watch: Chloë Grace Moretz Stars In First Trailer For Teen Dystopia Thriller ‘The 5th Wave’


The talented Chloë Grace Moretz has finally grabbed her own post-apocalyptic franchise. She stars as 16-year-old Cassie, the female lead from Rick Yancey’s wildly successful teen novel. And of course, the book is the first in a trilogy, so Moretz will be rolling in the money if this film is a hit.

For those who haven’t read the book, you can check out the official synopsis below…

“In The 5th Wave, set in the present day, four waves of increasingly deadly attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Against a backdrop of fear and distrust, 16-year-old Cassie is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother. As she prepares for the inevitable and lethal 5th wave, Cassie meets a young man who may become her final hope.”

Yeah, yeah…we know. It has the same themes as almost every YA franchise out there. However, there does appear to be an intriguing story hidden behind the normalcy. Entertainment Weekly, The AV Club and The New York Times praised the book when it was released.

You can check out the first trailer below. The film, which is directed by J Blakeson, will hit theaters January 15, 2016. It’ll be interesting to see how much money it brings home.
