Divorce” was nothing if not unique when it debuted in the winter of 2016. Dark, unflinching, and with a black sense of humor, Sarah Jessica Parker’s return to HBO dug into the nitty gritty details of an act nearly half of America’s married population will go through during their lives. Some viewers weren’t ready to deal with it, but those who were experienced a meticulous 10-episode investigation into the depths of long-term pain and newfound freedom.

Season 2 looks to capitalize more on the latter. As Parker’s divorcee Frances notes in the opening seconds of the new trailer, her divorce isn’t a bummer: It’s a fresh start.

‘Divorce’ Season 2 Trailer: Sarah Jessica Parker Plays The Dating Game

Created by comedic powerhouse Sharon Horgan (Amazon‘s “Catastrophe” — watch it) and starring two long time beloved actors with Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church, the first season of “Divorce” didn’t bring the hype that HBO seemed to be betting on. With Parker back on the channel that brought her to the spotlight with the immeasurably inspiration “Sex and the City” (its legacy somewhat tarnished due to the ill conceived film spin offs), it should’ve been a sure fire bet, drawing in both her older crowd, fans of the series, and newbies who were intrigued in seeing an “American Sweetheart” type play someone with a bit more of a foul tongue.

Daddy’S Home 2 – Review

The holiday movie season is in full swing this weekend with a yuletime-set sequel to a recent raucous comedy…again. Yes, it was barely ten days ago when a really early cinema gift arrived at the multiplex, Bad Moms Christmas. Well there are a couple of differences, this new flick is a follow-up to a 2015 release rather than the more recent, just over a year old Bad Moms. Plus the matriarchs’ antics are a tad more adult-themed, since both films garnered much-deserved “R” ratings for raunch. The new arrival is the more “family friendly” PG-13 (it might be even more wholesome than the first one, since there’s less talk of fertility). However both recent installment deal with the chaos and conflict initiated by the visit of the grandparents (Moms had one grandpop’ while this one doesn’t have a granny’ till the last moments). So, put those shopping lists

William Friedkin developing Killer Joe TV series

According to IndieWire, director William Friedkin is in development on a TV series based upon his 2011 black comedy crime film Killer Joe.

The site reports that Friedkin revealed at the Lumiere Festival in France that he is teaming with producer Bobby Maresco (Million Dollar Baby) for a new take on the story, which will shift the story from Texan trailer parks to upper class Houston.

“It’s set among the millionaires and billionaires, who have their wives or business competitors killed,” said Friedkin. “Joe is a hired killer who frames bad guys for the murders who can’t get arrested for something else, or he makes them look like suicides…He becomes a kind of avenging angel in the series because he doesn’t just kill anybody for hire. He has to feel that guy in some way deserves to go.”

‘Crash Pad’ Review: Domhnall Gleeson and Thomas Haden Church Make a Crackling Odd Couple
Odd-couple roommate pairings have been fodder for guffaws since, well, “The Odd Couple.” It’s become a tired and usually mirthless conceit. So you’d be forgiven for guessing that “Crash Pad,” whose story hinges on the concept, is yet another lazy, cable-unworthy comedy full of sorry slapstick and barn-broad humor. And you’ll be surprised to discover that it’s actually smartly written and expertly pulled off. Domhnall Gleeson, Christina Applegate and Thomas Haden Church lead the cast in director Kevin Tent’s first non-action film — Tent is also executive producer Alexander Payne’s go-to editor — penned by a similarly inexperienced scripter,

‘Crash Pad’ Clip: Domhnall Gleeson Is A Girlish Tilda Swinton [Exclusive]

Domhnall Gleeson is spending the fall season showing off his dramatic chops, appearing in Darren Aronofsky’s “mother!,” Tom Cruise’s action movie “American Made,” leading the biopic “Goodbye Christopher Robin,” and of course, getting ready for the blockbuster, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” However, the actor is eager to show off his comic side and he does just that in the upcoming “Crash Pad.”

Co-starring Thomas Haden Church, Christina Applegate, and Nina Dobrev, the film follows a young man whose one night stand with a married woman, not only turns romantic, but takes a further twist when he befriends the wronged husband.

William Friedkin looking to develop a Killer Joe TV series

  • JoBlo
It wasn't always the easiest film to watch, but William Friedkin's Killer Joe certainly helped to steer Matthew McConaughey away from the rom-com genre which he seemed stuck in at the time, and towards projects like True Detective, The Wolf Of Wall Street, and Dallas Buyers Club. Killer Joe starred Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Gina Gershon, Thomas Haden Church, and Matthew McConaughey, who played a... Read More...

Domhnall Gleeson Learns How to Drink From Thomas Haden Church in 'Crash Pad' (Exclusive Video)
Domnhall Gleeson gets an unexpected lesson in drinking from Thomas Haden Church in The Hollywood Reporter's exclusive clip of Crash Pad.

In the comedy, the Star Wars actor plays a hopeless romantic who thinks he's found true love, only to learn that the woman he's seeing is actually married. Even more so, the fling is merely an instrument of revenge against her neglectful husband (Church), who then opts to get back at his wife by moving in with her lover and adopting the romantic’s slacker lifestyle.

Christina Applegate and Nina Dobrev also star in the movie, directed by Kevin Tent.

Bill Pullman Doubles His Treasure at the Woodstock Film Festival

Bill Pullman Doubles His Treasure at the Woodstock Film Festival
During the Woodstock Film Festival’s Maverick Awards ceremony on Saturday night (Oct. 14), actor Bill Pullman graciously received an honorary award for Excellence In Acting and, as if on cue, allowed the trophy to fall to the floor and break in half. Holding up the pieces of his broken prize, Pullman quipped, “Oh my God, I’ve got two awards tonight!”

Maverick gestures aside, Pullman was also in Woodstock for the featured film “The Ballad of Lefty Brown,” an old-fashioned western drama, in which he stars. It screened at the Woodstock Playhouse for an enthusiastic crowd.

For the 2017 edition of the self-declared “fiercely independent” fest, currently in its 18th year and held Oct. 10 through 15, the programming was eco-friendly, class-conscious, gender-aware and racially sensitive — a fitting environment for the handful of host towns surrounding the area.

The Best Narrative Feature award went to the surreal comedy “Infinity Baby,” which was directed by Bob Byington and stars Kieran Culkin, [link

Biff Review: ‘Crash Pad’ Blatantly Reinforces Stereotypes of Masculinity

Morgan (Christina Applegate) is drowning in a marriage on the rocks. Both her career and her husband’s (Thomas Haden Church’s Grady) are booming — the time allotted to spend together often earmarked for something else. So they’ve drifted apart over the last fifteen years. Their sex life is non-existent and he’s away on business trips that “run long” more often than not. Why wouldn’t she assume he was therefore cheating on her? No reason besides a level of trust that appears non-existent in a day and age where the worst is usually believed and proven true. And since he’s always been a “man’s man” brute with toxic edges she’s sought to smooth out, why not embark on some cheating herself with the embodiment of everything he isn’t?

Enter Stensland (Domhnall Gleeson), an Irish ex-pat caught within a self-diagnosed “early life crisis” who
