Shocker! "Community" Has Been Renewed!

http://ift.tt/1x7dnht

By Yahoo. By Yahoo?

Sony

Though NBC didn't renew Community for a sixth season (much to the internet's dismay), the comedy has gotten a reprieve from an unexpected place — Yahoo.

The show will return in the fall for 13 episodes during its sixth season, fulfilling half of its #sixseasonsandamovie promise.

Sony, Community's producer, shopped the cult comedy actively, but found no buyers on cable or at Netflix or Hulu. With the hold on the show's cast expiring today, June 30, Yahoo appears to have swooped in at the last minute.

For its part, Yahoo, under its video umbrella, Yahoo Screen, has recently committed to trying to challenge the streaming services (which also include Amazon). In April, Yahoo's CEO Marissa Mayer announced that the company had picked up two new full-length comedy series for eight-episode seasons. They will be ad-supported like Hulu, not a subscription service such as Netflix or Amazon Prime.

In addition to the cast, Community creator Dan Harmon will also be back. In the press release announcing the Season 6 renewal, he was quoted: "I look forward to bringing our beloved NBC sitcom to a larger audience by moving it online. I vow to dominate our new competition. Rest easy, Big Bang Theory. Look out, Bang Bus!"

Bryan Singer Has Shared A Sneak Peek Of "X-Men: Apocalypse"

http://ift.tt/1qbgm68

It’s the first page of the treatment for the sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past , though he still has not officially signed a deal to direct the film.

On Monday, director Bryan Singer launched a new Instagram account with a shot of the first page of the treatment for X-Men: Apocalypse, the sequel to X-Men: Days of Future Past.

It references the Nile, and "the Four Horsemen," the henchmen of the powerful mutant Apocalypse — clearly evoking the post-credits sequence for Singer's film X-Men: Days of Future Past, which became the top-grossing film in the franchise globally.

Singer has long been set as a producer for Apocalypse, but his status on the film as a director has been in flux in the wake of sexual assault lawsuits filed against him in April and May. And BuzzFeed has confirmed that while Singer remains attached to direct the project, he has not yet signed a firm deal with 20th Century Fox for the job.

4. When it was released, The Lion King experienced controversy when people thought the word "SEX" could be read in a puff of dust during one scene. It's claimed that the dust actually spells "SFX," and was a nod to the film's special effects team.
