Indiewire Pick: “Ferrell Takes the Field” (9/12)
Haven’t you always wanted to see your favorite comedians play baseball with your favorite teams? Well, Will Ferrell has finally given us that gift. Funny or Die is co-producing this docu-special where Ferrell plays 10 different baseball positions on 10 different teams during spring training 2015. This special is sure to be a favorite among Will Ferrell fans, and maybe the start of a new trend among comedians.
Get your Rocky Horror show group together because now you can view the film with friends on HBO. The cult-classic premieres to stream with all your favorite characters: Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Janet, Brad, and more. Janet (Susan Sarandon) and Brad (Barry Bostwick) happen upon a castle one stormy night where they meet Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry). Once inside, they can’t escape the madness that the doctor has constructed in every room. Along the way, both characters change from their prudish-selves in the beginning to their cabaret-loving-selves in the end. Sing and dance along to your favorite Rocky Horror songs and “do the time warp again”. It’s time to get re-obsessed — or newly obsessed — with the unforgettable costumes and themes.
