Ricky Gervais Plays God in New Series

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, Announcements, News,

Ricky GervaisOffice creator Ricky Gervais is to play God. The comic star is working with Dexter producer Clyde Phillips on new TV show Afterlife, in which he will play the Almighty, however, his interpretation of the all-powerful being will not be the usual benevolent creator of the human race.

"Anyway, I play God. (My version will be) an arrogant, wisecracking son of a bitch, who thinks he's the best thing since sliced bread. Actually he thinks he's the best thing ever because, well, he is. He also loves welcoming atheists to heaven with a smug grin on his face," Gervais said of his character.

Gervais also insists the show is not an "atheist comedy," and has warned potential viewers not to expect a "twisted bloodlusty anti-religious fest" just because of Phillips' work on Dexter, which follows the double-life of serial killer Dexter Morgan.

"We've come up with this show because we think it will be fun, different and entertaining. Not to undermine the moral fabric of America," he explained.

The Hangover 2: In Review

The Hangover 2 - Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifanakis

If you liked The Hangover, does that automatically mean you should like The Hangover, Part II? Well, yeah… unless you expect too much from it. If you want to watch a very funny movie with plenty of call backs to its parent flick (you know, the reason it exists), and you’re excited about seeing lovable characters a second time around, you’ll absolutely enjoy The Hangover, Part II. If you’re expecting breakthrough comedy, deep meaning, something brand-new and never-before-seen, you might be disappointed… but why would you be expecting that?

Die-hard fans of the original probably aren’t, but the critics have been rabid in their dislike for the lighthearted sequel. It’s an almost-summer, holiday weekend ensemble comedy, and most movie reviewers are screaming for blood in their respective columns. Why? Because the movie isn’t original enough.

Box Office: Hangover Buzz Doesn’t Slow Ticket Sales

The Hangover 2

Critics have widely panned The Hangover, Part II, but that didn’t deter holiday weekend moviegoers. The comedy sequel earned massive bucks for Warner Bros., and surpassed box office earnings for its parent flick.

So who cares what critics say, anyway? The ensemble comedy earned $137.4, after enjoying the biggest-ever Thursday opening for a film ($31.6 million).

Kung Fu Panda 2 fell far short of the first-place mark, earning $62.2 million during the three-day weekend. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides racked up $50.4 million in third place. Bridesmaids earned $21 million, and Thor finishes off the top five with $12 million. Maybe some bad reviews would boost their box office mojo?
