Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues was crammed full of jokes, and there were so many more left on the cutting room floor that director Adam McKay was able to cobble together a second cut of the movie with 763 new jokes. But now it’s time to get serious.

Captain America may be the most American of superheroes — it’s right there in the name — but that doesn’t mean he can’t adapt to other cultures. While audiences around the globe flock to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, they’ll be getting ever-so-slightly different versions of the movie depending on what country they’re watching from.

Many a comic book movie has contemplated the emotional cost of being a superhero. You’re constantly in peril. You regularly have to put your civilian life on hold while you go battle baddies. All your loved ones are at risk of being captured by the enemy at any moment. And it can really sting when the public you’ve worked so hard to save doesn’t seem all that grateful for your help.
But then there’s also the dollar cost of being a superhero. Sure, Steve Rogers may have started out as an middle-class kid from Brooklyn. But super-soldier serums and cutting-edge equipment don’t come cheap, and — since S.H.I.E.L.D. is a government agency — we taxpayers are the ones footing the bill. So how much does having a Captain America cost the U.S., really? After the jump, a video breaks down the total price tag.

Louis CK is known for telling the truth. Even if it’s painful or offensive, Louis CK will tell people how it is. Now, a recently discovered interview shoves that idea in his face thanks to CK’s American Hustle nemesis, Bradley Cooper.
To explain, in an old interview CK did with fellow comedian, writer and actor Stephen Merchant, he joked about the fact every single actor who asks a question on Inside the Actor’s Studio will never be famous. That sounds like a pretty safe assumption, if only because of the millions of people who want to be actors, only a small handful actually reach recognizable status. But, it’s not 100% true; one young actor who asked a question on Inside the Actor’s Studio did become famous. A young man named Bradley Cooper.

When you spend seventy years under ice, you tend to miss out on a lot of world events and cultural references. (Heck, I feel lost when I sign back on to Twitter after being away for a week.) So naturally, there’s a lot Steve Rogers doesn’t understand about our modern world. But he’s not one to just throw up his hands and give up.
A screenshot from the opening scene of Captain America: The Winter Soldier reveals Cap’s to-do list, with items as varied as “Berlin Wall (Up + Down),” “Thai Food,” and of course, “Star Wars / Trek.” Basically, it’s the most adorable thing ever. Check it out after the jump.

As audience members, we’re encouraged to laugh as long and as loud as we can at Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. But as the stars of the show, Will Ferrell and company were obligated to maintain a straight face. Which isn’t always easy when the scenes are this hilarious.
A recently released reel of Anchorman 2 bloopers show the stars screwing up and screwing around on set — riffing on specialty condom brands, bursting into giggles at the phase “frothy ejaculate,” or nearly tearing up with laughter during an awkward romantic scene. Even Brian Fantana’s famous kittens get in on the non-camera-ready action, adorably attacking each other instead of their toys. Watch the video after the jump.

As usual, it’s hard to argue with the Frozen Honest Trailer. The team from Screen Junkies has taken the year’s biggest animated film, a multiple Oscar-winner, and expertly, hilariously dissected it. They point out some really funny parallels, the flaws in the songs, and how Frozen is more a Pixar movie than several new Pixar movies and much more. It’s not going to make you like Frozen any less, but, it might make you question some of the choices in the film. Check out the funny video below. Read More »
