It may only be a few days since the last entry of the Weekly Ketchup covered San Diego Comic-Con, but Hollywood was quick to start releasing news stories about movies that don't involve superheroes or comic books. The movies that made the news in the last five days include Dragonriders of Pern, The Jungle Book, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, The Mummy, Pixels, and Skull Island.
This week, Christy breaks down the sci-fi space action-hero film Guardians of the Galaxy, the James Brown biopic Get On Up, the wrong side of the tracks story 4 Minute Mile and on DVD the epic story Noah.
Team Tomato talks about this week's new releases Guardians of the Galaxy and Get On Up, and shares some interview excerpts with Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Chadwick Boseman. Then Sarah talks about the new season of The Killing and a new show called The Honorable Woman, which prompts Grae Drake to start talking like an upper-class British aristocrat. After that, Ryan discusses this week's new DVD releases Noah and The Other Woman, and the show ends with an announcement about how to get a chance to win a limited edition Mondo Guardians of the Galaxy poster.
This week's TV news includes a live Doctor Who special with Talking Dead's Chris Hardwick, a new Peter Pan musical with Allison Williams, and a record-breaking night for Syfy with Sharknado 2. Also, HBO announced a David Simon miniseries and TV Land announced a Jim Gaffigan sitcom!
Arrested Development was cancelled by a network and saved by Netflix before it was cool. And if you have no idea what's hidden in the banana stand, how to pronounce "Gob," why a loose seal is dangerous, or what an analrapist does for a living, then you're long overdue to binge Arrested Development, "the story of a wealthy family who lost everything, and the one son who had no choice but to keep them all together."
The Godfather of Soul gets his cinematic due this weekend with the James Brown biopic Get On Up, starring 42's Chadwick Boseman as the legendary singer. The prospect of watching director Tate Taylor's dramatization of Brown's remarkable life has left all of us in the RT offices with ants in our pants and the need to dance, so we decided to devote this week's list to a celebration of all things filmic and funky. Jump back, we wanna kiss ourselves: It's time for Total Recall!
