Monty Python reunion to be simulcast in nearly 2,000 movie theaters worldwide

Monty Python is not dead yet.

As you may already know, the five remaining members of the beloved comedy group — John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin — are set to reunite this summer for their first performance together in 34 years. (The sixth Python, Graham Chapman, died of cancer in 1989.) The Pythons will take the stage of London’s O2 Arena on July 1-5, 15-16, and 18-20. This news was exciting but bittersweet for legions of fans, since getting a ticket to these shows is about as difficult as determining the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow; the O2 says every seat for Python’s first reunion performance was snatched up in a record 43.5 seconds.

But don’t go crying into your coconut shells! Picturehouse Entertainment revealed Thursday that it will broadcast the group’s final live performance simultaneously to 450 movie theaters in the United Kingdom — as well as 1,500 additional venues globally.

Jack Black held court during the terrifically freewheeling Q&A after the screening. When a fan asked him for a song, Black broke into an extended verse of “Legend of the Rent” complete with caterwauling and high kicks. READ FULL STORY

Sony Pictures Animation working on an 'ALF' movie from producer of 'The Smurfs'

Few mainstream sitcoms have ever been more eccentric (or more puppet-y) than ALF, the lighthearted ’80s series which centered on an typical All-American suburban family who live with a furry alien creature. The character Alf (who had a real name: Gordon Shumway) has mostly been absent since the show went off the air in 1990, besides a 1996 TV movie that costarred Martin Sheen and an extremely short-lived 2004 talk show in TV Land. But big things are happening for the big-snouted E.T. from Planet Melmac: Sony Pictures Animation has purchased the rights to ALF, with an eye towards bringing the franchise to the big screen.
