The late Sid Haig appears in our exclusive trailer for the new film Suicide for Beginners. Though the late horror legend passed away in 2019, he had previously completed his work on Suicide for Beginners, and his posthumous appearance serves as one of his final film roles. As the title would suggest, it’s a rather dark comedy, but that’s certainly not something that would’ve bothered Haig. You can watch the trailer below ahead of the movie’s release on May 6, 2022.
Suicide for Beginners is directed by Craig Thieman and written by Thieman and Ethan Hunter. The film stars Wil Daniels, Sara Tomko, Nate Panning, Julia Lehman, Sid Haig, Christian Rozakis, and Simon Crist. It is a collaboration between Inspire Productions, 207 Pictures, and Hank and Jed Movie Pictures. You can read the official synopsis below.
Per Star News Online, director Craig Thieman previously spoke about how difficult it was to get the movie released. The film began its journey as a short film called Love Letter that was released to acclaim in 2007. Its success inspired Thieman to pursue a feature-length version of the story. The biggest challenge came with raising funds for the budget, resulting in a Kickstarter raising over $40,000 to contribute to the project. Additional years have been spent obtaining more money from investors to add to ...-production process, with color correction, editing, and everything else that needs to be finished in post.
“I’m glad we’re finally going to get it out,” producer Tim Parker explained, having been there for the journey. Unfortunately, the lengthy production process meant that Sid Haig wasn’t able to see the final result before his passing. Though he likely made the comment in jest, Haig also predicted that Suicide for Beginners wouldn’t come out until after his death.
“Someone saw Sid at some comic book convention or something. He asked them if the (expletive) movie was going to come out before he died,” Parker said.
Sid Haig was a veteran actor who was well known to horror fans for his work in Rob Zombie’s films, specifically as the iconic character Captain Spaulding in House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects, and 3 from Hell; Haig died just days after 3 from Hell was released, making it his final movie released during his lifetime. He had also been working frequently in other genre films in the years leading up to his passing, such as Bone Tomahawk, Death House, and Hanukkah. Haig will also appear in the upcoming horror Abruptio with other legends like Robert Englund, Jordan Peele, and James Marsters.
Because Haig is still badly missed by fans, it’s nice to see the unique actor delivering one more one-of-a-kind performance in the way that only he could. Suicide for Beginners will be released on May 6, 2022, courtesy of Vertical Entertainment.
Is Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers the New Roger Rabbit? Early Reviews Overwhelmingly Say Yes
The announcement that Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers were being resurrected sent shivers down the spine of fans. Following in the wake of the Disney+ series Chip and Dale: Park Life, which brought the in vogue simple animation style to the furry twosome, a Rescue Rangers movie seemed like it was destined to make a whole generation grimace, but following the release of two trailers, it looked possible that a revival/reboot/remake was finally being done in a way that worked. Now the first reviews suggest that the film could well be up there with the pinnacle of live-action/animated crossovers, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
Chip and Dale have been part of Disney’s character arsenal since making their debut in Private Pluto in 1943. After appearing in numerous cartoons with the likes of Donald Duck, the pair were given their own series in 1989, when they became the owners of a detective agency which they ran with the help of associates Gadget Hackwrench, Monterey Jack and Zipper. While the show only ran for a year, it has remained an iconic favorite, and now it looks set to make a huge and unexpected return.
The new film sees Chip and Dale, voiced by John Mulaney and Andy Samberg, respectively, years on from their days as investigators. Chip is working selling insurance, while Dale has continued to live a celebrity life and had a 3D make-over in the process, but the pair reunite when cartoon characters start going missing. Now the first reviews have started coming in, and it looks like this is one reunion that everyone who remembers the original series will want to see. Check out what has been said about the movie below:
There are very few rebooted franchises that manage to satisfy everyone, but somehow, Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers appears to be on track to do just that. When the first trailer for the movie dropped, it caught many off guard with a knowing humor and hybrid of 2D and 3D animation styles in a live-action world. While this managed to grab the attention, it was the second trailer that really made people sit up and take notice as it delivered a whole wave of cameos, including characters not actually owned by Disney.
Of course, this is what has led to comparisons with Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, which famously saw characters such as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck appearing alongside the likes of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Betty Boop, which was an almost unthinkable achievement in itself without the movie delivering one of the best films of the decade in the process. Based on its early reviews, Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers could well become this generation’s Roger Rabbit – who coincidentally appears in the movie – when it arrives on Disney+ on May 20.
Ron Swanson's Best Significant Other On Parks And Recreation Is Obvious To Fans
In Season 5 Episode 3, “How A Bill Becomes A Law,” Diane Lewis (Lucy Lawless) is introduced to the cast of comic characters as a love interest for Ron, and the fans immediately fell in love with her. In the subreddit r/PandR, a picture was posted by u/deckhandpo with the caption, “These two don’t get enough credit as a couple. I think they were great for each other IMO.” Nearly all of the dozens of comments were in praise of the character, while those that spoke otherwise simply chose to insult Tammys 1 and 2.
Diane is characterized by her kind bluntness and tender confidence. A single mother of two and a middle-school vice principal, she has no room for beating around the bush. In an interview with EW, Lucy Lawless said, “This is his first mature relationship — she doesn’t pervert his nature in any way. This is the sort of woman that you might want to see him with, and yet it’s going to be damn near impossible for him to stay in it.”
Fans, like u/video-kid, praised her for accepting Ron as he was while encouraging him to become better. Others, like u/TixHoineeng, loved her sense of humor. While not the highest rated comment, u/chrissilich summed it up perfectly by saying, “Of course the only woman who fulfills enough squares on the Ron Swanson Pyramid of Greatness is Xena Warrior Princess,” which is a wonderful reference to Lawless’ notable acting career.
