Ricky Gervais was on Conan last night to plug his appearance in Muppets Most Wanted and talked about everything you’d want him to. He described what his role as an incredibly annoying supervillain might look/sound like. Of course the conversation came to the time he was on Louie (Dr. Ben during the first season) and he was described Louis C.K.’s naked body in disgusting detail.
All the clips are below including his appearance on Louie, check them out and have a laugh:
Following a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign that ended on April 12, 2013, Veronica Mars was shot over 23 days during June-July 2013. It will be released in selected theaters nationwide on March 14th, 2014. To commemorate this release, CoF will be giving away a copy of the forthcoming DVD, along with a “Neptune, CA” trucker’s hat. We’ve also got a very cool quiz app that you can check out and test your knowledge on:
On the eve of graduating law school, Veronica Mars has put Neptune and her amateur sleuthing days behind her. While interviewing at high-end New York law firms, Veronica Mars gets a call from her ex-boyfriend Logan who has been accused of murder. Veronica heads back to Neptune just to help Logan find an attorney, but when things don’t seem right with how Logan’s case is perceived and handled, Veronica finds herself being pulled back into a life she thought she had left behind.
This contest is open to the USA. There are two ways to win:
President Obama sat down with Zach Galifianakis for an episode of Between Two Ferns to discuss everything from The Hangover to Dennis Rodman to health care. It’s actually funny; you can see the President hold his own and get a few jokes in there while at the same time trying to seem hip to get this health care to the young people (healthcare.gov). As a March 31 deadline for enrolling for 2014 approaches, the White House is making one final push to try to increase the numbers.
“What’s it like to be the last black president?” No, he did not hold back. Watch it below:

In a surprising (to me anyways) twist, seven years after Zack Snyder’s 300 killed the box office, the 3D sequel 300: Rise of an Empire hit $45.1 million in its debut beating out the$32.5 million debut of Mr. Peabody & Sherman. It’s interesting to note though that Rise of an Empire opened behind 300′s debut ($70.9 million) on the same weekend in 2007, but markets and 3D and blah blah.
Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel made history opening in four theaters in New York and Los Angeles and earning $800,000 for a theater average of $200,000. Best picture winner 12 Years a Slave came back to take the No. 9 spot with $2.2 million, a 123% jump! Liam Neeson’s Non-Stop has a near 50% drop in sales and Son of God suffered a 61% drop.
Next week we get: Need for Speed, Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club

During the Oscars this year, I sent out a tweet suggesting that Louis C.K. host next year. The idea of that of course is amazing, but I can’t imagine him agreeing to it. SNL will have to do if you’re looking to get your C.K. fix; the comedian will host the March 29 episode with no musical guest announced yet (Coldplay would be a good guess). He previously hosted in November 2012, it was pretty awesome.
2013 has come and gone and my thoughts on the best movies of last year can be seen here. Now it’s 2014 it’s another year for great movies; here is a list of movies I’m most looking forward to seeing and can only hope they don’t let me down.
I didn’t forget the big ones that may appear on a lot of lists (X-men: Days of Future Past, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America), I might even watch them; they just didn’t end up on my radar.
What are you warming up to see? Shout out in the comments below.
Graham’s Trailer Roundup! The Boxtrolls, Legends of Oz, Grace of Monaco, Frank, Afflicted and Batman: Arkham Knight
Everyone loves movie trailers; we can’t get enough of them here in The City of Films. It’s an art form that stands alone from the film itself and has a remarkable power to move us. Trailers can give us chills, laughs, goose bumps and sometimes even anger us. We can’t always post them all, so here’s where we play catch up; it’s Graham’s Trailer Roundup!
This Roundup Includes: The Boxtrolls, Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return, Grace of Monaco, Frank, Afflicted and Batman: Arkham Knight
One of the most anticipated shows of this upcoming season is FX’s Fargo, a 10-episode series executive produced by the Coen Brothers who made Fargo, one of the greatest movies of all time. There’s a not a lot of details out there regarding the show, so we don’t know how close it will be with the movie. The cast is amazing: Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, Adam Goldberg, Oliver Platt, Glenn Howerton, Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key, and Colin Hanks just to name a few.
FX has released ten teaser-trailers! Fargo premieres April 15th on FX, the PLAYLIST of all the trailers is below:
A biopic of Martin Luther King Jr.has been trying to get off the ground for years by many different names; Paul Greengrass and Oliver Stone are just two that have been attempting to get King’s life story on the screen. Reports now indicate that the civil rights leader’s story is coming to the small screen via HBO and The Wire creator David Simon.
It will be a six-hour miniseries adaptation of Taylor Branch’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book trilogy America: In the King Years, Simon will spearhead the miniseries with his Treme co-creator Eric Overmyer. Oprah Winfrey is also attached to back and produce the series. It’s said that Simon will write at least the first episode, as well as the bible for the entire mini. America: In the King Years chronicles the life of the civil rights leader from his first sermon in 1954 to his assassination in 1968.
If you watched The Wire you know that Simon has ability to bring out stories that would otherwise go untold or watered down. He is unflinching and somewhat of a rebel in the best way a storyteller can be; I can’t wait to see what the does with the project.
