Chris Hardwick Fantastic Four

This weekend brings the release of 20th Century Fox’s latest attempt to bring Fantastic Four to the big screen, and the early buzz on the comic book reboot from director Josh Trank is pretty positive so far. We’ll see if that holds up when more people see the movie this weekend.

In the meantime, it appears the studio is already  looking forward to the future by changing up the superpowered quartet by adding a fifth person. Nerdist founder, comedian and Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick recently auditioned for a role in Fantastic Five, and franchise stars Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell were there to oversee his tryout. How did it go? Watch the Chris Hardwick Fantastic Four audition after the jump to find out. Read More »

Coach Taylor Alamo Drafthouse PSA

Kyle Chandler currently stars in Bloodline on Neflix, but his best-loved character will probably always be Coach Eric Taylor from Friday Night Lights. Recently, he reprised that signature role to draw attention to a very important issue: jerks who talk and text during movies.

Chris Farley in Mission Impossible

Unfortunately, in the winter of 1997, we lost comedy star Chris Farley. The Saturday Night Live veteran was overcome by fame and glory, letting drugs and alcohol rule a life that brought laughter and joy to millions. We’ll never know just how much more comedy Farley could have brought to the masses in future film and television projects.

Thankfully though, Farley is still able to bring us a good laugh from the footage that we already have of the actor hamming it up in films like Tommy Boy and Black Sheep. And friend of the site Todd Spence decided to use Farley’s signature comedies to lighten up this weekend’s latest blockbuster, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.

Chris Farley takes the role of Tom Cruise with footage of the actor intercut with the trailer for the action sequel to humorous effect. It’s amusing throughout, but it’s the payoff at the end that makes it all worth it. See Chris Farley in Mission Impossible after the jump! Read More »

Unfortunately, Ron pretty quickly gets sidetracked, threatening to show off his “Fifty Shades of Ginger” and weeping over his recent marital woes with Hermione. Watch the Drunk Ron Weasley video after the jump.  Read More »

Hunger Game of Thrones

As if Jon Snow didn’t have enough to deal with already, he’s now become the target of a coordinated attack by Katniss Everdeen. A new mashup video combines The Hunger Games with Game of Thrones, replacing President Snow with Jon Snow. Alliser Thorne would probably approve of the results.

Pippi Longstocking reboot pitch

There have been plenty of revisionist takes on classic fairytales lately, from Maleficent to Snow White and the Huntsman, and Hollywood is on the lookout for new ideas like this all the time.

Enter Clint Howard, character actor extraordinaire and brother of director Ron Howard. He has a pitch for a movie that is the “biggest, newest, most box office crushing-est hero in town.” She’s got a truckload of freckles, two pigtails and can lift a horse with one hand.
