Owen Wilson & Ed Helms in New Trailer for 'Father Figures' Comedy

"Operation Who's-Your-Daddy - the top mission is finding dad." Warner Bros has debuted a new trailer for the comedy titled Father Figures, formerly known Bastards, starring Owen Wilson and Ed Helms as fraternal twin brothers who go on a search for their father when their mother reveals she doesn't know who he really is. This was actually set to be released in January, but the studio pulled it and delayed it all the way until Christmas this year, giving it a new title in the meantime. Unfortunately it still doesn't look any better. Also starring Katie Aselton, J.K. Simmons, Terry Bradshaw, Glenn Close, Ving Rhames, Ryan Cartwright, Katt Williams, Retta and Bill Irwin. Not really worth a watch, but have a look if you wish. Here's the new official trailer for Lawrence Sher's Father Figures, direct from WB's YouTube: You can still watch the original trailer for Bastards here,

Father Figures Trailer Has Owen Wilson and Ed Helms on a Dad Hunt
Perhaps you haven't heard of Father Figures? That's because when the first trailer dropped more than a year ago, it was called Bastards. The team behind this comedy wised up, changing the title and giving you some time to forget. Now, they have cobbled together a new trailer, for better or worse, and here we are.

Arriving from Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment, the latest footage from Father Figures promises a Christmas comedy that will bring you back home. The movie opens on December 22, and it stars two heavy weights in the genre who've not been so busy lately. The movie teams the great Ed Helms with the always welcome Owen Wilson for the right amount of charm. It doesn't really matter how good or bad the script is, these guys will probably carry the material pretty far on their own.

Wilson and Helms play Kyle and Peter Reynolds, brothers

‘Rachel Getting Married’ and the First-Person Humanism of Jonathan Demme

Kym (Anne Hathaway) carries herself with the foresight that she is damned. She takes a drag from her ever-present cigarette as she tries to compose herself before the arrival of her family, who are on their way to pick her up from rehab. Her clothes and body language, however, tell a different story. She wears a ratty emerald green coat at all times — a coat that appears a size too large as it hangs listlessly on her frail body. Kym has a perpetual downward glance that can only be achieved through shame and internalized self-hatred. Kym bears her scars for the world to see and, despite her best efforts, she cannot slip away from the glances of everyone around her who can obviously see that she is damaged in a fundamental way. She hasn’t seen much of her family over the past few years, but she’s clean now,

When Dan Stevens Threw Up, Noah Hawley Called It a Day on ‘Legion’

When Dan Stevens Threw Up, Noah Hawley Called It a Day on ‘Legion’
From an astral plane designed to look like a frozen 1970s bachelor pad to co-star Bill Irwin’s interpretive reenactment of fight scenes, it was almost as if “Legion” creator Noah Hawley was daring audiences to see how many GIFs they could create for each episode of his FX series. One of the first instances to make audiences sit up happened in the first episode of this surreal series: A Bollywood-style dance number inside a mental hospital to illustrate the sparks flying between Dan StevensDavid Haller, a character diagnosed with schizophrenia, and his love, Rachel Keller’s Syd Barrett.

“The show is based around the idea that we’re going to give you this objective feeling of what it’s like to be David, and what else does falling in love feel like other than a Bollywood dance routine, really?,” says Hawley, who both wrote and directed the episode. “It

Emmy Contenders 2017: Supporting Actor in a Drama

Emmy Contenders 2017: Supporting Actor in a Drama
It’s a testament to “Better Call Saul” that the category might be dominated by its supporting players. While Jonathan Banks has scored nominations two years in a row, Giancarlo Esposito is added to the mix this year for reprising the character of Gus Fring, last seen on “Breaking Bad.” That performance earned him an Emmy nod and there’s no reason to think bringing the character to the spin-off won’t bode well. Michael McKean has shockingly never been nominated for an Emmy, and this year he delivered a phenomenal performance in the episode “Off Brand” when his character took the witness stand. “Westworld” also has a powerhouse trio in Ed Harris, James Marsden and Jeffrey Wright, all of whom could find themselves in the line-up. Also boasting dual possibilities is “The Crown,” which saw five-time Emmy winner John Lithgow channel Winston Churchill and Jared Harris as King George VI. They

From 'Twin Peaks' to 'American Gods': Welcome to the Golden Age of Weird TV
An FBI agent communicates with an eyeless woman on some cosmic, supernatural plain while a brain on a stalk issues cryptic orders. A living Goddess swallows a grown man into her vagina while in the middle of sexual intercourse. An international-waters orgy climaxes with a priest nearly forced to fornicate with a fake lioness, not long after tying up a man who claims to be God. A lounge-lizard who lives in a luxury igloo (technically, he resides in some sort of psychic limbo) swills cocktails and sprouts beat poetry. And

A Supercut Celebrating the Power and Beauty of ‘Legion,’ the Best New Show of 2017

The game-changing series gets a succinct and gorgeous tribute.

If you missed Noah Hawley’s Legion on FX, you missed one of the greatest television series to come along since, well, Noah Hawley’s Fargo. Not only is Legion an inventive take on the Marvel Comics’ character it’s based on, it’s also a new kind of “superhero” story, one that places fragile humanity ahead of indestructible superhumanity, one that delves into the cursed psyche of the genetically blessed, one that emphasizes how not all heroes are born heroic, and one that reveals the power — great or small — derived from mastering our personal flaws.

Besides being a fascinating narrative game of Chutes and Ladders played on a Moebius Strip between two mirrors, and in addition to featuring career-altering performances from Dan Stevens (Beauty and the Beast), Rachel Keller (Fargo), Bill Irwin (Interstellar), Jean Smart (Designing Women) and Aubrey Plaza (Parks & Rec) — who is “Alex DeLarge,” “Hannibal

‘Legion 1×08′ Review

Stars: Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart, Mackenzie Gray, Scott Lawrence, Katie Aselton, Tatyana Forrest, Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin, Amber Midthunder | Created by Noah Hawley

With the way last week’s Legion ended, there was a feeling that this finale couldn’t live up to what we’d already seen. Thankfully, we can trust Legion to deliver where it matters, and that includes a hint of what is to come in season 2.

With Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) now restrained within David’s (Dan Stevens) head, the next big problem is the return of Division 3 and Clark (Hamish Linklater), the interrogator from the first episode. Hardly in a position of power, will he be forced to work with David to handle the danger held within his mind?

It isn’t a surprise really that David handles Division 3 so easy, but what is interesting is that we get to see some

5 Things We Learned From 'Legion,' Season 1

5 Things We Learned From 'Legion,' Season 1
Now that its first season has wrapped, FX's Legion has to go down as the most audacious superhero show that any big-time TV network has ever attempted – which makes sense, given that it featured a character who's one of the oddest in the history of the X-Men comics. A scarily strong telekinetic mutant, David "Legion" Haller (played by Dan Stevens) has trouble distinguishing between his ability to read minds and the "hearing voices in your head" strain of mental illness. So even in the series' season finale, when David was

Legion has been good at keeping its secrets, sometimes to an annoying level. Now though as we reach the end of the first season we come to the episode that provides most of the answers, setting us up for what appears to be an explosive finale.

With David (Dan Stevens) trapped deep in his mind, Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) is upping the stakes on taking over his body. With Lenny’s true identity finally revealed, Cary (Bill Irwin) and Oliver Bird (Jemaine Clement) discuss how to defeat the new enemy while Syd (Rachel Keller) works to free the rest of the group, including David before it is too late.

‘Legion 1×06′ Review

Stars: Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart, Mackenzie Gray, Scott Lawrence, Katie Aselton, Tatyana Forrest, Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin, Amber Midthunder | Created by Noah Hawley

Legion had a definite theme this week, and that is about holding back. Whether it is David (Dan Stevens) being held back by Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), or the bullets that are set to ruin everybody’s day.

While an episode which is set back in the mental hospital may put the fear into many fans that this would be a weak episode, there really wasn’t anything to worry about. What we see is David being put in a protective reality, just a shame it is Lenny (or as we now know her, the Devil with the Yellow Eyes) that appears to be in control. What is interesting about the setting of this episode is how David’s reality uses a lot of
