The moment Jon Stewart announced his departure from Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, fans began speculating about who might replace him. One of the most popular fantasy-cast picks has been Jessica Williams, who’s been knocking it out of the park as the program’s “Senior Beyoncé Correspondent,” among many other things, since 2012.
Well, if the time-traveling bros of Hot Tub Time Machine 2 are to be believed, all of those wishlists are right. In an eerily prescient clip from the comedy sequel, the gang arrives in 2025 to discover that Williams has taken over Stewart’s old desk. Watch the Daily Show Jessica Williams clip from Hot Tub Time Machine 2 after the jump. Read More »

Men have got it tough. Seriously. There are so many movies making us look terrible. We look like bad guys. Like we’re stupid. Every single movie you can think of has a man in it who is evil or dumb. This is a problem that has to stop! There’s not a single movie out there with a man who is smart. Or a hero. Or depicting someone with morals. We’re always Darth Vader and Kevin James rolled into one and it’s not fair.
The biggest problem is this new Frozen movie. You know Frozen, that movie that came out in 2013 which Fox News says is new. Forget that part of the reason it was such a hit was the depiction of women as strong and independent. The real problem is the men of Frozen are stupid! What kind of message is that? This has to stop! Watch a hilariously off-base Fox News Frozen video below, in which the hosts seem to actually believe stuff like the sarcasm above. Read More »

Though Tuesday’s teaser was the first we’d seen of Fox’s Fantastic Four, we (and the rest of the Internet) couldn’t help but notice it felt awfully familiar. The somber voiceover contemplating human nature and man’s place in the universe, the shots of all-American cornfields and high-tech labs, the furrowed brows of serious scientists doing serious science… it all felt straight out of Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar.
And indeed, a new Fantastic Four Interstellar trailer mashup making the rounds shows that the two films might not be very different at all. Give or take a Dylan Thomas poem, the Fantastic Four teaser may as well be another Interstellar promo. Watch the video after the jump. Read More »
It’s a rare treat when the Screen Junkies team does an Honest Trailer for one movie let alone four. But their latest honest trailer is for Pirates of the Caribbean and they don’t just stick to the first film or trilogy. They go all the way up to On Stranger Tides, the billion dollar success no one remembers a single thing about.
Besides the sheer volume of films skewered here, the Pirates of the Caribbean Honest Trailer does a great job poking fun at the insane notion that pirates – one of history’s most violent and terrible groups – could be Disneyfied. My favorite bit is probably where they trailer shows that death is literally impossible in these movies as men are stabbed, shot and worse, and never ever die.

Unsurprisingly, Taken 3 was the run away box office champion in its opening weekend, grossing almost $40 million. People just love Liam Neeson kicking ass, especially on a weekend and month that’s down at the theaters. And though almost everyone involved figured the third film would be the end, maybe it won’t be.
Jimmy Kimmel Live got on the train early. They created their own Taken 4 trailer a mere three days after the Taken 3 opening weekend. Liam Neeson stars, of course, as does the host himself. But it’s the subject who is actually “taken” that brings it all together. Watch this funny Taken 4 trailer below. Read More »

One of the more surprising omissions from this morning’s Oscar nominations was The Lego Movie. Despite its immense popularity with both critics and general audiences last year, The Lego Movie somehow failed to secure a nomination for Best Animated Feature.
But it’s okay, because when the bad news came, co-director Phil Lord reacted the way any Master Builder would: he built his own. Meanwhile, co-director Chris Miller chose to celebrate the Oscar nomination it did get — Best Original Song, for “Everything Is Awesome.” See their reactions to the Lego Movie snub after the jump.

It’s a Gone Girl kind of day. There’s talk of a sequel, the cast and crew are reuniting for another movie and the Blu-ray just hit shelves. Screen Junkies has jumped into the mix too, with a Gone Girl Honest Trailer, jokingly calling the film the best Lifetime movie ever made. David Fincher fans are going to have fun with this one. Check out the Gone Girl Honest Trailer below. Read More »

Pretty much the moment Chris Pratt was announced as the star of Jurassic World, we Parks and Recreation fans started to wonder Andy Dwyer would make of all this. After all, hanging out in a dino park all day is exactly the kind of thing that’d get Pawnee’s most lovable idiot to make this face:
Well, wonder no more because some genius on the Internet has created Jurassic Parks and Recreation, a mash-up combining the Jurassic World trailer with some of Andy’s most memorable moments. Watch Jurassic Parks and Recreation after the jump. Read More »
Disney is great when it comes to casting the costumed characters you see in their theme parks. I’ve seen various characters present so many fantastic off the cuff responses in characters to park guests over the years. The latest to make its way across the interwebs is Beauty and the Beast antagonist Gaston challenged to a feat of strength and got exactly what he asked for. Of course, the character from the Disney animated classic is a narcissist who thinks he is superior to everyone around him. A Disney World park guest challenged the arrogant and egotistical hunter to a push up contest and the costumed character accepted. Watch the resulting Gaston challenge as recorded on a cameraphone (people, lets start recording horizontally and not vertically, okay?) after the jump.
