Netflix’s Newest Trailer For “Wednesday” Gives A Glimpse Of Fred Armisen As Uncle Fester and Reveals Christina Ricci’s Role
Because the current era has been unkind and unworthy of encapsulating and all of the universe’s original thoughts have apparently already been thunk, nostalgic reboots and spin-offs are at an all-time high. Paramount+ is reviving Frasier, Vh1 is bringing back The Surreal Life, Hocus Pocus 2 just unleashed hell in homes everywhere, and Netflix’s announced addition to The Addams Family franchise, Wednesday, is coming to Netflix next month. We already knew that the Tim Burton-directed series would star Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzmán as Morticia and Gomez Addams and that Jenna Ortega would play Wednesday. We also saw the cast in a teaser trailer, but a freshly dropped trailer revealed that Fred Armisen is Uncle Fester. We also get to see that Christina Ricci–who, as a child actress, played Wednesday in The Addams Family and Addams Family Values movies–has a role in the upcoming series as well.
Open Post: Hosted By Lindsay Lohan Falling On Her Sword To Save Christmas In The Trailer For Netflix’s “Falling For Christmas”
We may be careening towards complete societal collapse, but even if it’s our last, this Christmas is sure to be the best one yet thanks to Lindsay Lohan falling off a cliff in the trailer for her Netflix Christmas movie, Falling for Christmas. Last year we learned that The War on Christmas’ clumsiest warrior had pulled herself away from the recording studio, where she is still presumably putting the finishing touches on her long-awaited album that was supposed to usher in the 2019 Lohaniassance, to film FFC as well as a second rom-com for Netflix called Irish Wish, which will presumably come out just in time to save Saint Patrick’s day.
Survivor and The Amazing Race alum Mike White‘s HBO show The White Lotus already did what it had to do by giving Jennifer Coolidge a long overdue Emmy-worthy role that she tackled to the ground and suffocated to death with her magnificent bosom. She killed that shit and has the Emmy to prove it. But as it turns out, she left her character, a ditsy, bereaved heiress named Tanya McQuoid, only mostly dead and married to the traveling businessman she hooked up with at the end of the first season. And as we know, TWL was picked up for a second season with a new cast and a new location. Variety reports that TWL will once again be doing what it’s supposed to do because Jennifer is the only returning cast member (other than the aforementioned husband played by Jon Gries, you know Lazlo who lived in Val Kilmer’s closet in Real Genius, and yes I patted myself on the back and called myself the REAL real genius for pulling that one out of my dark, twisted subconscious) for S2 which takes place at a different White Lotus resort in Sicily.
OK, I got one for you: What’s black and white and red all over? Answer: Babylon! In the trailer for La La Land director Damien Chazelle’s new 1920s-Hollywood-set movie starring Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, the jazz players are Black, the booger sugar is white and for some reason Damien has decided to film all the party scenes, of which there are many, using the Fangtasia filter originated during the making of True Blood.
Here Are The Trailers For Disney’s Live-Action “The Little Mermaid,” “Hocus Pocus 2,” And “Disenchanted”
Mickey Mouse probably lived it up last night by popping bottles and making it rain Disney dollars on twerking mice at Disneyland’s Club 33. Because the trailers for several movies that are going to make his greedy ass even richer were released. D23 Expo, the event where Disney drops trailers and info for their upcoming projects, is happening this weekend in Anaheim, CA. And yesterday, Disney released the teaser trailer for its live-action The Little Mermaid, and full trailers for Hocus Pocus 2 and the Enchanted sequel called Disenchanted. There was also an appearance by one of Disenchanted‘s stars, Patrick Dempsey, who served snow daddy realness.
Like Pinnochio, the book Winnie The Pooh by A.A. Milne has recently entered the public domain meaning Disney’s vice grip on those properties has slipped enough that Guillermo del Toro has a competing Pinnochio movie coming to Netflix and some sicko with a honey fetish has Pooh and Piglet running around with axes making mincemeat out of women in the new horror film Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey. Personally, I’d prefer to see WTP turned into a porno based on that time he got his ass stuck in Rabbit’s gloryhole, but I suppose that probably already exists.
