Bobby Farrelly on Modern Comedy and touch Audiences

The art of comedy is one that is constantly evolving. While there is some consistency in what people find funny, the style of comedy fluctuates and changes over the years. But if there’s one thing that is having a big impact on the state of comedy right now, it’s how people react to it. In the age of Twitter, it’s easy for people to get outraged about something and suddenly have an army of people vocalizing their anger online. Some of these movements are justified and can have a significant impact on society’s behavior while others are just people who take every opportunity to be offended.

There’s Something About Mary and Dumb and Dumber co-director Bobby Farrelly recently participated in a panel at the Sun Valley Film Festival where he talked about the state of modern comedy, which involves thin-skinned audiences and a lack of mid-budget feature comedies. There’s a lot to chew on here. Read More »

starwars-forceawakens-lourd-fisher

Last December, Hollywood was hit with the tragic news that Star Wars saga actress Carrie Fisher had passed away. She had already completed filming on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but reports indicated that her character General Leia was meant to have an even bigger role in Star Wars: Episode IX. One of the options being discussed in order to fix this issue was making changes to General Leia’s role in The Last Jedi to reduce the problem of her not being in Episode IX. But that apparently won’t be necessary.

Disney CEO Bob Iger appeared today for a chat at the USC Marshall School of Business, and when conversation turned to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, he brought up the passing of Carrie Fisher and how it was being handled behind the scenes.  Read More »

Zombieland 2

It’s time for the yearly checkup on Zombieland 2‘s pulse. The sequel to Ruben Fleischer‘s (30 Minutes or Less) kindhearted post-apocalyptic zombie comedy has been talked about and sometimes doubted for the last eight years now. During that time, the stock of film’s stars has risen. Emma Stone recently won an Oscar after the world went nuts for La La Land, while Woody Harrelson starred in The Hunger Games franchise and has a role in the new Han Solo film.

They’re more sought after and naturally more expensive to hire. According to the screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick behind the 2009 film and Deadpool, paying them what they’re deserved while staying reasonable is a part of the next steps on the sequel, which makes it sound a little more likely than it has before.

Below, get the latest Zombieland 2 update.

Star Wars The Force Awakens rey finn 5

The minute Disney purchased Lucasfilm back in 2012, we knew the studio planned to expand the Star Wars franchise far beyond what we’d already seen. To their credit, they moved quickly: it’s now five years later, and they’re already in production on their third Star Wars movie. Now you can go ahead and mark your calendars for 2032, because Disney CEO Bob Iger says there’s a good chance they’ll still be pumping out Star Wars films at that point. Read More »

new han solo actor

Before today, the only thing we knew for sure about the young Han Solo movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are currently filming is that it will follow the galaxy’s most charming scoundrel in his younger days. Now, thanks to an interview with Disney CEO Bob Iger, a few other details about the film’s scope and plot details have arrived. Some of them are obvious enough, but one detail is the truly bizarre implication that Han Solo’s actual name is not Han Solo. Or something.
