One of the year’s biggest disappointments, not just for audiences but for 20th Century Fox, was the reboot of Fantastic Four from director Josh Trank. The new adaptation of Marvel’s first family was an absolute mess and not even in a way that was fun to laugh at because it was so bad. It simply exists.
And that makes the Fantastic Four Honest Trailer a real treat as they point out that it would be more interesting to watch a movie about the debacle of making this movie instead of the awkward, moody and low energy comic book movie we got instead. Watch! Read More »

There’s a chance that when the movie Creed was announced, some fans of the alternative rock band Creed were disappointed to learn about wasn’t about the band that can take you higher, to a place where blind can see. That chance is very slim, simply because I don’t think there are any Creed fans still around. But just in case those fans need a consolation prize, the band’s lead singer Scott Stapp took the time to review the Rocky spin-off Creed, and he’s obviously pretty disappointed. Read More »
We’ll have a full review of the latest episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by Matthew McConaughey up later today, but in the meantime, we couldn’t help but share this pre-recorded sketch from last night. A whole slew of guest stars popped on SNL for this sketch that features J.J. Abrams (who actually appears in the beginning) showing off some of the screen tests of other actors who tried to land a part in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Sofia Vergara, Javier Bardem, Shaquille O’Neal, John Mayer, Danny DeVito, Chris Tucker and Michael Buble for some reason, all audition for the movie, with a little help from the real Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. Watch it below! Read More »
Last night we were caught off guard by the unveiling of a new TV spot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This time the focus was on Finn, likely as a way of keeping fans guessing as to whether it will be John Boyega’s Finn or Daisy Ridley’s Rey who becomes the new new hope of the Star Wars saga. You can check it out right here.
But if you’re done watching any new footage after the final trailer for the movie, then you can kill some time by checking out the final The Force Awakens trailer sweded, with some of the worst Stormtrooper helmets you’ve ever seen. But there is some real fire used at one point that’s pretty cool. Read More »

As long as grown men dancing in superhero costumes remains funny, Marvel gag reels will always be worth a watch… and the new Ant-Man gag reels contains a higher percentage of dancing than any gag reel we’ve seen in ages. If this video is any indication, Paul Rudd starts dancing at the drop of a hat and must be coerced into standing still. Michael Peña also busts plenty of moves, but Rudd, whether he’s in the Ant-Man outfit or in civilian clothes, never stops moving to his own personal beat. He’s a treasure. We don’t deserve Paul Rudd.
The gag reel also features other amusing moments, but it’s about 84% Rudd/Peña dancing. So you know what you must do. You must watch it.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Stephen Colbert has a long history with Star Wars. He’s defended that crossguard lightsaber, called out Star Wars creator George Lucas, and even attempted to guess the entire plot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens based on just the images in the trailer. While its clear Colbert is a Star Wars fan, he wasn’t afraid to take on the evil empire last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. In a segment on last night’s show, Colbert blasted the brand’s past and present pieces of ridiculous marketing integration, or more specifically Cover Girl’s new line of Star Wars collection makeup.
“The forced marketing integration is strong with this one,” remarked Colbert, who went on to mock the product: “They were previously available in containers that didn’t say Star Wars!”

With the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens officially one month away (technically under a month since the movie starts playing December 17th), there’s no better time for an Honest Trailer to start taking shots at the original trilogy, beginning with the sci-fi adventure that started it all.
The Star Wars Honest Trailer will tickle the fancy of saga fans if only because it refuses to call the movie by its later added subtitle of A New Hope. And really, there’s not a lot to skewer besides the legacy of Star Wars that has wrought a huge fanbase that puts together Wikipedia pages for nearly every facet of the Star Wars universe, so that’s what they do.

If for some reason you haven’t acquainted yourself with comedic genius Nathan Fielder and his Comedy Central program Nathan for You, you’re missing out on some of the most brilliant comedy that has been done in the past decade. But even if you don’t think you’ve experienced what Nathan Fielder has to offer, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of his exploits such as Dumb Starbucks or the viral video of a pig rescuing a goat from drowning.
Starting next week, you’ll be able to see Fielder in a supporting role in the R-rated holiday comedy The Night Before, and to help hype the film, the comedian sat down for an awkward interview with the film’s three main stars: Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie. And things get pretty weird. Read More »

We know /Film is a movie website, but maybe you’ll forgive us for delving into the wide world of sports for a moment. After all, few moments have impacted culture worldwide like the 1985 exhibition boxing match between Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago. This event shook the sporting world to its core and rattled the foundation of international politics – the world was never the same after Drago hit the mat and Balboa stood triumphant. It’s no accident that the Cold War finally came to an end a few years later.
Now, this astonishing match is finally getting the attention it deserves in a new episode of 30 for 30, ESPN’s acclaimed documentary series chronicling the most important figures and events in the history of sports. Whether you were alive and watching in the days of Balboa’s prime, or too young to realize just how much this event changed life on this planet, this is required viewing.
