In case you missed, here is my review of the new Wednesday dramas: Arrow, Chicago Fire and Nashville. Since the new James Bond movie Skyfall premieres this Friday, I think I might write a review about that for next week, can't wait for tomorrow to see it!

Kristen Wiig has became a household name in movie industry after Bridesmaids and after that I loved her in Friends With Kids. Her next project is Hateship, Friendship. Directed by Liza Johnson, this indie dramedy tells the story of a nanny (Wiig) who is hired by a man (Guy Pearce) whose wife has died. The troublesome child in question is played by Hailee Steinfield who tries to set up her nanny and father. Nick Nolte has a supporting role as the grandfather.

I loved Diane Keaton in Somethings Gotta Give and now she is starring in another romantic comedy, this time with  Michael Douglas. Keaton is actually quite a brilliant actress since she manages to pull off both dramatic and comedic roles. Anyways, this movie is called And So It Goes and in it she plays the lovable neighbour to Douglas' character who tries to help him out after his estranged son drops off a grand-daughter he never knew he had.

After showing us her golden pipes in Pitch Perfect, Anna Kendrick is now maybe signing on for a second musical role as Cathy in the movie adaption of a musical The Last Five Years. She was also part of the table read of the film adaptation of the musical Into The Woods, which I raved about few weeks ago. She is really becoming an A-list actress and an Oscar-nomination few years ago didn't hurt.

Justice League movie has been in the works for many years now. Some suggested that they needed to make individual movies for each character to establish the connection, like Marvel did with the Avengers and its affiliates Iron Man, Thor and Captain America. But now Warner Bros has decided to speed up the plans and trying to release the film same time as the Avengers 2, which means the summer of 2015. There is no word on the cast yet. Christian Bale is unlikely to reprise the role of Batman, since I assume this film will have a totally different look than Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy. Henry Cavill is playing Superman on next year's Man of Steel, so he might be up for the role in the Justice League. Green Lantern is also part of the League and he was played by Ryan Reynolds in the feature film of the same name. I really want to see this happen, but they have a lot of holes to fill in their plan.

Justice League certainly faces tough competition from the Avengers-team. Especially now that the dark and edgy trailer for the Iron Man 3 is all that superhero fans can talk about. I can't wait to the end of this post to share it, since it is good! There are so many details to focus on, and to get a better walkthrough of them, head to


Though Andy Samberg left SNL (which will be hosted by Louis C.K. in Nov. 3rd) after last season, it looks like he is doing pretty good. He has been cast as the lead character in an untitled comedy about police investigators in NYC. It is co-created by Parks and Rec creator Mike Schur so it should be good. It is actually pretty weird that there is no, or very few, comedies about cops on TV. And I don't count shows like Mike and Molly where one character is a police officer. I have a good feeling about this new comedy.

I can't believe how much I'm expecting Arrested Development, I'm already laughing though it doesn't start until next spring. One of the stars of the show, Will Arnett, revealed last night on Conan that both Andy Richter and Conan O'Brien will appear on the new season. Richter has already played himself on the show previously. They didn't mention who Conan will play, most likely himself, since he has said that he doesn't like acting very much. Here is a little treat to ease the wait: 

Halloween is just around the corner and you can definitely see that on the TV. Last nights Modern Family was already hilarious and I can't wait for other Halloween episodes. To get a sneak peek of the costumes, see this gallery of pictures!

This week was also great for another reason, or should I say, ah-mah-zing! Happy Endings returned. Right from the start of the season 3 premiere I remembered why I fell in love with the show. The Hollywood Reporter got to visit their set and were given tour by the stars them self. For a video by Max Pally and Casey Wilson go here, and for Elisha Cuthbert, Zach Knighton, Eliza Coupe and Damon Wayans Jr. go here!


I've watched this trailer for Holy Motors four times now, and I still don't have any idea what it's about. But it looks awesome and interesting. To top it all, it has Kylie Minogue. Try to make some sense of this trailer:

This second makes a bit more sense, but it still is pretty weird. This is supposed to be like the Avatar underwater, but it really doesn't compare visually or actor-wise. Sure it looks good, but not epic. I hope it will get even some success on the box office since this film has a whopping $130 Million budget.  It's called Empires of The Deep and it stars Bond-girl Olga Kurylenko.

The last one is for a dramedy Save the Date, which stars Alison Brie and Lizzy Caplan, both of whom are establishing themselves a pretty solid indie-comedy background. I wont bother to tell you the plot since it's pretty obvious when you watch the trailer:

That's all folks! New post coming next week and maybe a Skyfall review.
