'Harmontown' trailer shows good, bad, nerdy parts of Dan Harmon's life

For many fans of Community, the show seems incomplete without its creator, Dan Harmon. The backlash to season four, before which Harmon was fired, is just one of many examples of that sentiment. But, if anything, Harmon’s one-season departure from the sitcom—he’s since been hired back—created a groundswell of support and devotion for Harmon.

The writer used his hiatus to tour the country with his podcast, and filmmaker Neil Berkeley recorded everything along the way. Harmontown the podcast became Harmontown the movie, and a new trailer gives Harmenians, the nickname for Harmon’s devotees, a taste of what to expect when the film debuts.

“I want to be the guy that makes people happy,” Harmon declares at the end of the trailer, which sets up the nerdiest road trip film many audiences will have ever seen. Harmontown follows the beloved showrunner and his friends as they play Dungeons and Dragons with some celebrity guests along the way. The trailer intersperses talking-head interviews with castmembers of Community and other comedians who have worked with Harmon, like Jack Black and Sarah Silverman, as the film looks to investigate Harmon himself and the impressive following he’s garnered over the years.

Harmontown will receive a limited theatrical release on Oct. 3 and will be available on VOD nationwide the same day. This may not be the “movie” Community fans had in mind when they began the “six seasons and a movie” campaign, but it will hopefully satisfy them for now.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' recasting to be finalized in the next few weeks

NBC-Universal employees have been told the recasting of Christian Grey in the company’s film version of the erotic best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey will be finalized in the next few weeks.

The source, who requested anonymity because the meeting was private, also said NBCU officials confirmed Fifty Shades will still be released next year and that co-star Dakota Johnson remains committed to her role as Anastasia Steele.

The meeting was held primarily to introduce Jeff Shell, who is taking over as Chairman of Universal Filmed Entertainment Group.
