Chris Pratt as Jason Statham

As a fan of Saturday Night Live, I’ve always wanted to see the sketches that end up getting cut for time. Since SNL is a live show, some sketches end up getting cut if the show runs long. But those cut sketches are usually recorded in the two-hour dress rehearsal that happens before the show airs live at 11:30 Eastern time.

Since SNL has found new life online with sketches that go viral with every new episode, there’s finally a place for cut sketches to see the light of day. And we’re lucky enough today that one such sketch has surface online months after the original episode aired. In the sketch, Chris Pratt plays Crank and The Transporter Jason Statham, selling a fine product called Jason Steakums, and they sound delicious. Watch Chris Pratt as Jason Statham after the jump!

Channing Tatum card tricks

With Magic Mike XXL hitting theaters this week, Channing Tatum has been making the publicity rounds along with his producing partner Reid Carolin. That’s how we found out that the Ghostbusters spin-off with Tatum and Chris Pratt may not be in the cards anymore.

But speaking of cards, Tatum opened up a little bit about his preparation for the forthcoming X-Men spin-off Gambit, about the kinetically-charged Cajun mutant known for slinging explosive playing cards at his foes. Turns out Tatum has been learning some real card tricks in order to make his turn as Gambit all the more convincing. Find out more about the Channing Tatum card tricks after the jump! Read More »

The first Magic Mike was billed as an over-the-top stripper comedy, but underneath those gold lamé thongs it turned out to be something far more surprising: a sober examination of the American dream. We watched Mike Lane try to pull himself up by the bootstraps, only to find himself judged, used, discarded, and creatively constrained.

The sequel Magic Mike XXL, in contrast, is all gold lamé thongs — or rather, it would be if the boys hadn’t decided gold lamé thongs were passé. The former kings of Tampa have ditched all depth and ambivalence in pursuit of drunken good times. And it works, albeit in a completely different way from the first Magic Mike. The result is the perfect summer movie: dumb, sweet, eager to please, and hard not to like.  Read More »

This year marks the anniversary of several movies, including the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future, the 40th anniversary of Jaws and the 25th anniversary of Gremlins 2: The New Batch. But there’s another film that may not be quite as celebrated, but deserves to be honored for its 30th anniversary this year: the murder mystery comedy Clue.

Based on the classic board game of the same name, the film brings to life the strange and perplexing murder mystery that keeps getting worse as the stormy night carries on. If there’s one piece of evidence to show that adapting a board game into a movie can work, it’s Clue. And Gallery 1988 is paying tribute to the movie with a collection of fantastic, original artwork.

Amy Schumer turned down The Daily Show

Earlier this year, we learned that Jon Stewart would be leaving Comedy Central’s long-running news satire program The Daily Show. Comedy Central ran the gamut of talented comedians to replace Stewart on the show, including names like Chris Rock and Amy Poehler, before they picked correspondent Trevor Noah to take the gig.

However, one name that we didn’t hear about officially as a candidate was Amy Schumer, the comedienne who has skyrocketed to fame over the past few years thanks to her stellar sketch comedy show Inside Amy Schumer. It turns out Schumer was offered the job, but she actually ended up turning it down. Find out why Amy Schumer turned down The Daily Show after the jump! Read More »
