finding dory new characters

It’s no secret Pixar loves slipping Easter eggs into its movies, and sometimes the animation studio gets so eager they even sneak in references to movies that haven’t even opened yet. Case in point: while Hank the octopus, voiced by Ed O’Neill, is billed as one of the “new” characters of Finding Dory, he’s really been hiding in plain sight for years. As a new video reveals, Hank’s actually been part of the Pixar family going all the way back to Toy Story in 1995. Really!

… Except no, not really. As you’ve probably figured out by now, this “epic” Finding Dory Easter egg is really just an April Fool’s prank. Still, the video does contain some (genuine) new footage featuring Hank and Dory, not to mention a little clip of O’Neill and director Andrew Stanton being just plain adorable. So if that sounds like the kind of thing you’d be interested in, swim with us below the jump.  Read More »

Suicide Squad The B Team

Late this summer, some of the most notorious villains and criminals from DC Comics will assemble for the ensemble action flick Suicide Squad. The crew consists of Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smiith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje as Killer Croc, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Karen Fukuhara as Katana and Adam Beach as Slipknot. But what if the best people for the job weren’t available?

A Suicide Squad parody trailer has been put together featuring an ensemble of some of the most average villains from cinema.

Batman and Superman Honest Trailers

Today Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters, leaving you to see the divisive comic book flick for yourself and see what you think of Zack Snyder‘s attempt at bringing the greatest gladiator match in the history of the world to the big screen. But if you don’t have tickets yet, or you’re waiting until the hype dies down a bit, then we have a battle between the Man of Steel and the Dark Knight that you can check out right now.

Ben Affleck in Hollywoodland

This weekend, Ben Affleck makes his debut as the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But as fans of the actor already know, he’s played Superman once before, too, sort of: in the 2006 drama Hollywoodland, he plays actor George Reeves, who portrayed the Man of Steel in the 1950s TV series Adventures of Superman.

Naturally, then it was only a matter of time the internet thought to mash up the two performances and pit Affleck’s Batman against Affleck’s own Superman. Watch the Batman v Superman trailer parody Affleck v Affleck after the jump.  Read More »

Community Season 6 Gag Reel

Last year brought the sixth season of Community to Yahoo Screen, the online content generator which saved the show after it was canceled at NBC after barely hanging on each and every previous season. Sadly, it appears that was also the last season of the show as Yahoo Screen decided to call it quits earlier this year. Of course, that just means everything is going according to plan as far as the famous “six seasons and a movie” prophecy is concerned.

But if you’re desperate for some laughs from your favorite community college students, then this snippet of the Community season 6 gag reel should bring you some temporary happiness until Dan Harmon decides to get the Community movie off the ground. Watch it below. Read More »

Robot Chicken George Washington

Just yesterday brought word that Man of Steel and Watchmen director Zack Snyder has been considering making a movie about George Washington in the style of 300. Inspired by the fact that many of the paintings of the American Revolution hero aren’t far removed from the style of Frank Miller’s graphic novel, Snyder doesn’t think it would be too hard to make that movie.

However, it’s not exactly an original idea. In fact, back in 2009, the folks over at Robot Chicken predicted that the filmmakers behind 300 would tackle the story of the Revolutionary War with a flick called 1776. And yes, it included all the slow motion and stylized action from 300. Watch it below. Read More »

Full House Nights

If you thought Fuller House was the only spin-off sequel series to the cheesy ’90s sitcom Full House we were going to get, you thought wrong. Hot on the heels of a second season order for Fuller House, yet another spin-off series has been revealed.

Full House Nights follows Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), Jesse Katsopolis (John Stamos), and Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier) after they put the girls to bed in the original series. Because that’s when they turn into night time detectives of San Francisco. And if that sounds like something you just can’t wait to see, then you can check out a clip below. Read More »

Donald Trump Musical

Sunday night after the Oscars, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel had his usual star-studded show to follow Hollywood’s biggest night. There was plenty of fun to be had, from the premiere of a deleted scene from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice featuring Kimmel himself discovering the true identity of Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne, to the latter star helping to sneak Matt Damon into the show.

But outside of comic book jokery and the usual Matt Damon feud shenanigans, Jimmy Kimmel also rounded up Broadway and big screen duo Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane for a new take on The Producers, this time turning Bialystock & Bloom into political consultants who concoct a plan to make money off of a candidate who is “a real trainwreck, a schmuck, a putz, a real Grade A, world-class, gold-plated nincompoop.” Yeah, you know who they’re talking about.

star trek hamilton mash-up

I’m the hardest sell in the world when it comes to internet mash-ups of any kind. Just because you can mash something up with another thing doesn’t mean that you should. I’m a firm believer in the “Think Twice Before You Draw The Mad Max: Fury Road Cast Like a Peanuts Characters” school of thought – not every single popular thing needs to be re-imagined as Calvin and Hobbes. No. Stop it. Please.

And yet, I’m kind of bowled over by this new video that mashes up Star Trek with Hamilton, two things that seemingly have no right to go together at all. Maybe it’s because it plays directly to my very specific tastes, or maybe it’s because there’s a certain amount of impressive effort on display, but here’s a goofy combination of two things that earns a thumbs up from yours truly.
