Judd Apatow
While many have been happy unplugging their traditional cable to just stream stuff online, the way things are shaping up, it looks like we'll just be spending that money anyway on a variety of streaming services. With Netflix leading the pack, and Amazon making some big strides, Hulu now wants their own corner for original programming.

It looks like HBO is eager to stay in the Danny McBride business. With "Eastbound & Down" wrapping up its fourth and final season last fall, the network is reupping with McBride and Jody Hill for "Vice Principals," and they've already gone ahead and ordered eighteen episodes.

Walk Of Shame
Meghan Miles is a good girl. Straight-laced, the local L.A. news anchor comes from a polished conservative family from Texas. And so when a potential promotion opens up at a larger network affiliate, the prim and proper Miles seems like their ideal choice; a safe candidate. However, before the TV journalist can focus on the potential elevation, her life is sideswiped — her fiancé moves out taking everything with him. Encouraged by her best friends, her devastating upheaval leads to a night of binge drinking and “Walk of Shame” begins its ill-conceived evening (and morning after) of wacky misadventures.

Life Partners
There are two types of intolerable people, and they're both present in “Life Partners.” This comedy depicts a friendship between two grown women, both of whom find themselves shifting in different directions. Responsible Paige (Gillian Jacobs) has a regular 9-to-5 position at a law firm and social gadfly Sasha (Leighton Meester) toils away at a thankless receptionist job, and while neither of these jobs should define these characters, they inevitably do. This shorthand complicates a potentially fine source of drama, because Paige is straight and Sasha is gay.

Walk Of Shame
Ah yes, the walk of shame — the post-coital ritual that we've all experienced, leaving someone's place in the morning smelling of fluids, with sex hair matted to improbably angles. And that concept takes a whole other turn in "Walk Of Shame," with the comedy getting a red band trailer.

Liam Neeson Gangs Of New York
Huh. We've gotten so used to Liam Neeson cashing paychecks and cracking skulls that it's easy to forget he's an Academy Award-nominated actor (for his turn in "Schindler's List"). And while he did dial it down a bit for Paul Haggis' abysmal "Third Person" which premiered at TIFF last fall, for the most part, we just think of Neeson these days as filling time with one generic thriller after another (e.g. the upcoming "Non-Stop" and the soon-to-be-filming "Taken 3"). But it looks he'll have a chance to remind everyone that he has other special skills that don't involve punching people in the groin.

Review: 'Bad Milo!' Starring Ken Marino & Gillian Jacobs A Ridiculous But Respectful Horror Comedy

Look, you’re just going to have to come to terms with the fact that “Bad Milo!” is about a man who has a monster that grows out of his ass and kills people. If you’re not willing to get onboard with that premise, this isn’t a movie that’s going to sway your initial feelings. And that’s okay: movies aren’t meant to be for everyone, as much as contemporary demographics might beg. They used to make genre films that occupied a very specific, very weird part of the video store where your mother, your teachers, and even your philistine babysitter dare not venture. “Bad Milo!” to its credit, would have been one of them.

Bad milo
“It’s about a guy who’s stressed out and monster comes out of his ass and kills the things that are stressing him out and goes back up his ass,” Ken Marino told us about his new upcoming horror comedy, “Bad Milo” at SXSW 2013. “It’s good clean, butt fun.” Hmm, how can you go wrong there? Directed by Jacob Vaughn (an short filmmaker and assistant editor on the Duplass Brothers' "Cyrus" and "Jeff, Who Lives at Home"), “Bad Milo" co-stars Gillian Jacob (“Community”), Peter Stormare, Stephen Root, Mary Kay Place and Patrick Warburton, and it’s about exactly what Marino said it was: a monster living up a dude’s butt.

We've had our eye on Matt Spicer for a while now, as it seems he's just on the cusp of breaking out. The writer/director is a frequent collaborator with Max Winkler ("Ceremony"), co-writing "The Ornate Anatomy of Living Things" and "The Adventurer's Handbook" with him which are in development, while their latest effort, the period comedy "The Coward," is set to be Winkler's next directorial effort. But Spicer is now branching out behind the camera, and the results of his first effort are here.

Unfortunately, when we talked to Ken Marino at SXSW earlier this week, the “Veronica Mars” Kickstarter campaign had not yet been announced, so there’s no word yet on whether Vinnie Van Lowe will return for the movie, already greenlit for this summer. What did we talk about? Marino’s gross-out monster movie – he describes it as “good butt fun” – which premiered in Austin this week.
