Playing in 100 locations around the country right now is the sophomore writing/directing effort of comedian turned filmmaker Mike Birbiglia. He made a splash at Sundance a few years ago with the charming, semi-autobiographical Sleepwalk with Me, and now he’s back with a movie called Don’t Think Twice, focusing on a group of tight-knit friends in an improv troupe. The film is in the same vein as Broadcast News and other films from James L. Brooks, just set in the world of improv comedy, and it’s truly a must-see.
Now in an efforts to help promote the movie, producers forced Mike Birbiglia to create a viral video to make more people aware of the movie. Sadly, this resulted in cast members Gillian Jacobs (Community), Keegan-Michael Key (Key and Peele), Kate Micucci (Garfunkel and Oates), Chris Gethard (Broad City), and Tami Sagher (Inside Amy Schumer) all getting the viral video virus. Watch the Don’t Think Twice viral video after the jump. Read More »
It’s no secret that James Bond is a a super misogynistic character. He’s a womanizing spy in every single one of his big screen adventures, and even Daniel Craig has pointed this very fact out before. When asked what we can learn from James Bond, Craig quite bluntly said, “Nothing. Let’s not forget that he’s actually a misogynist. A lot of women are drawn to him chiefly because he embodies a certain kind of danger and never sticks around for too long.”
That’s something that’s never been subtle in the James Bond franchise as everyone expects him to make a double entendre about sex while speaking to any of the Bond girls hired for a particular movie. Even the opening credits sequences are full of visuals that serve as not-so-subtle metaphors for sex, as one video hilariously lays out in the most obvious way after the jump. Read More »
If there’s one thing we took away from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it’s that Kylo Ren has some serious anger management problems. Who knows just how many credits have been spent to repair control consoles in First Order Star Destroyers after he tears them apart with his lightsaber? And knowing how easy it is for Kylo Ren to get worked up, one has to wonder just how he would react to something like the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer.
Now we don’t have to wonder any longer because some clever fans have just created a perfect video where Kylo Ren reacts to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘s new trailer that just debuted last week. That might sound silly (and believe me it is), but the fact that they have perfected the sound effects to replicate Kylo Ren’s voice makes it work extremely well. Or maybe they just have that Kylo Ren helmet with a voice emulator. Either way, just watch below! Read More »

Two of the most beloved men in showbiz, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda, are teaming up this fall for what will hopefully be Disney Animation’s next smash hit. But before we get to Moana, the pair took a moment to pay homage to an old Disney animated classic. In an incredibly charming video below, you can see the pair doing a duet of “Gaston,” from 1991’s Beauty and the Beast. You can probably guess which one played Gaston.

This weekend’s raunchy, R-rated animated flick Sausage Party imagines what it would be like if the food in our grocery aisles was alive. The movie is hilarious, twisted and outrageous, but that wasn’t enough for Seth Rogen. In addition to bringing talking foods to the big screen, he also wanted to bring them to a real life grocery store with a hilarious and creepy Sausage Party prank.
A special effects team set up a few different animatronic foods in a real grocery store and Seth Rogen made them talk live from another room. The initial shock of people realizing they’re seeing talking food is funny in itself, but then the conversations they have with the food in question are even better. Read More »

Before Zack Snyder polarized superhero movie fans with Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he polarized superhero movie fans with Watchmen. Granted, Snyder’s adaptation of Alan Moore‘s seminal comic was received a bit better than his most recent films were, but to this day people seem to have severely mixed feelings about it. Fortunately, the Screen Junkies team is here to help you sort out your thoughts. Watch the Watchmen Honest Trailer below. Read More »
This past weekend brought Jason Bourne to theaters after being away for nearly a decade. The sequel hasn’t fared too well with critics, earning a 57% on Rotten Tomatoes, but audiences turned out enough this weekend to take it to the top of the box office. Still, it’s hard to deny that Jason Bourne doesn’t exactly deliver as high of quality storytelling in the spy thriller arena as the three predecessors starring Matt Damon.
However, as you probably noticed, Jason Bourne definitely hit all the same notes as each of the chapters in the Bourne trilogy, which all involved Matt Damon learning a little more about his character, getting in a cool car chase, and finding out that the person in charge of finding him is just a puppet for something larger. At least, that’s how the Bourne trilogy Honest Trailer breaks it down, complete with an apt comparison to a Pixar favorite. Watch below! Read More »
Last week during the chaos of Comic-Con in San Diego, late night host Conan O’Brien brought his TBS show to join all the geeks and nerds who descended on the city, and broadcast a batch of episodes featuring the casts of Game of Thrones, Suicide Squad and more. As usual, all of his shenanigans during these shows took aim at all things nerdy and geeky, and one of the highlights included laughs inspired by a forthcoming Star Wars project.
We all know there’s a Han Solo spin-off coming in a couple of years with Alden Ehrenreich playing the role originated by Harrison Ford. However, there were plenty of other actors who were desperate to get that role. Conan was able to get the Han Solo audition tapes featuring a cavalcade of well-known names such as Bill Hader, Will Arnett, Jeff Goldblum, Adam Sandler and even Jodie Foster, all doing their “best” to get the role of Han Solo.

So you’ve finally decided to cave and see what this Game of Thrones show is about. Unfortunately, if you’re just joining us now, that means you’re behind by a full 60 hours of dragons, ice zombies, and super-intense politicking. Fortunately, Samuel L. Jackson is here to get you up to speed in no time.
The Oscar-nominated actor has a hilarious profanity-laden recap of the fantasy drama which will get you up to speed in under eight minutes. The video focuses mostly on the first five seasons, so you’re more or less on your own with regard to season six. But that’s still a savings of just under 50 hours. Oh, and if you’ve already seen all six seasons of Game of Thrones, that’s okay — you’ll still want to watch this because, well, it’s a Samuel L. Jackson Game of Thrones recap. Read More »
