NBC Did Something Right Thanks To The Arcade Fire

They did it on purpose too! Well, this was unexpected. NBC agreed to air something awesome. Of course, they waited until 1am Saturday night/Sunday morning but still... something awesome was broadcast to the nation on the National Broadcast Company. After appearing as the musical guest on the season premiere of SNL, Arcade Fire made things weird by launching into their own after-show concert special. Directed by Roman Coppola, the style of the special was made to ape the crap that followed SNL in the early 1980's. Look out for cameos from James Franco, Rainn Wilson, Bono, Ben Stiller, Michael Cera, Bill Hader, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Schwartzman, Eric Wareheim, and Aziz Ansari. More of this please, NBC. Please fill your late night programming with gonzo stuff.

Check Out The Star-Studded Trailer For 'Digging For Fire'

This has to be the most high-profile cast ever assembled for a film named after a Pixies song. Do you like Jake Johnson? How about Orlando Bloom, Anna Kendrick, Sam Elliott, Ron Livingston, Chris Messina, Jenny Slate, Melanie Lynskey, Sam Rockwell, Mike Birbiglia, and Brie Larson? Huh? You like THOSE actors? Cause if you do, then the Digging for Fire trailer might interest you. Joe Swanberg is directing a film about a crisis in the life of two 30-something LA residents. I don't want to give away any plot points, but if that cast doesn't motivate you to watch the trailer, then you're probably not going to watch it no matter what. (Vulture)


'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' Rolls Out An Awesome Trailer

'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' looks like it will be this year's best film about British guys not trusting one another. From the looks of this new trailer, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy looks like it will be this year's best film about British guys not trusting one another. Set during the Cold War, Gary Oldman stars as a former MI6 agent to root out a mole in the upper echelons of the agency. Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Strong,  Toby Jones, John Hurt, Stephen Graham also star. The earlier teaser focused on Cumberbatch's character whereas this one centers more on Tom Hardy, who first learns of the double-agent and brings the information to the organization. But can he be trusted? I say just fire the whole lot of them.


NBC Goes To Hell: 'Constantine' Trailer

I mean that in a good way. NBC really like Medium but alas the show didn't have enough fire tornadoes and had to be put out to pasture. Now the network has found a new guy who can not only talk to ghosts but also totally explode them. Based on the successful comic series, Constantine stars Matt Ryan as the man without a soul who can see the world for it it truly is -- filled with gross bugs and tar-barfing Nanas. It's said to be a pretty faithful adaptation of the book so they don't be surprised when its canceled.


The World Is Fire And Blood In 'Mad Max: Fury Road' International Trailer

This film will be rated R "for intense scenes of things that have to happen in 'Mad Max' movies." As if there would be any other way to make a Mad Max movie, Mad Max: Fury Road has just officially received an R-rating for "intense sequences of violence throughout, and for disturbing images." You say "disturbing," I say "incredibly awesome." Have a look at the international trailer. It can only be described as mayhem. Finally a movie that pits post-apocalypse warriors against insane cannibals and has them fight to the death on speeding, blade-adorned vehicles inside of a tornado from the director of Happy Feet.

Here's A Pretty Awesome First Look At Netflix' 'Wet Hot American Summer' Series

It's the first day of Camp Firewood, and H. Jon Benjamin is here to narrate. We knew Wet Hot American Summer was coming to Netflix. Now we can confirm that the bat-sh*t crazy foundation of the original is still in place thanks to this fake promotional video that shows us what's in store for the gang at Camp Firewood. Does it hurt that it's narrated by H. Jon Benjamin? No. No it does not. Here's the clip: Yup. That brief little cutout was a throwback to the Michael Ian Black/Bradley Cooper lovemaking scene from the film. A nice little piece of fan service, which is important, because I'm not sure this is going to find a new audience given its weirdness.
