Generally when a group puts on a live read, they pick a script of reverence. An Oscar-winner like The Usual Suspects, a classic comedy like Groundhog Day or Ghostbusters, maybe a stage masterpiece like Glengarry Glen Ross. When Funny or Die does it, they go a little out of the box. They do Space Jam.
Michael Jordan famously starred in the 1996 animated hit, which blended live actors with the Looney Tunes in a sci-fi, comedic, basketball romp. For kids of that era, the film became a classic. For anyone who has seen it since, it doesn’t quite hold up. But it’s fun, with a nostalgic appeal, and so Funny or Die recruited an all-star cast to read the script. Literally. NBA All-Star Blake Griffin read the role of Jordan and a slew of comedians and actors filled in the other roles, such as Seth Green, Ralph Garman, Danielle Fishel, Paul Scheer, Nick Kroll and others.
Below, watch – not the whole thing – but a good 10-minute highlight of the Space Jam live read. Read More »
When it was first released, no one would have guessed Frozen would become the highest grossing animated film ever. Sure the reviews were solid and the music wonderful, but to some, it felt a tad off. The whole idea of Elsa “letting go” after being locked away like an animal gave the film a slightly off-putting feeling. At least to me.
If you don’t know what I mean, the team at How It Should Have Ended say it better than I ever could. They’ve created their latest video based on the hit film and it hilariously raises some big questions about the parents of Anna and Elsa. There might even be a cameo from a certain popular Marvel Comics series in there.

A new Kevin Smith movie is coming out in a few weeks. Kind of. Fresh off last year’s small theatrical tour, Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie hits on demand May 6. Smith wrote and provides his voice to the film, leaving the directorial duties to Steve Stark. In this Askewneverse animated film, everyone’s favorite New Jersey stoners, Jay and Silent Bob, win the lottery and use the cash to turn into their crime fighting alter-egos, Bluntman and Chronic.
A longer trailer hit last year but a new poster and trailer have now been released for the on-demand release. Check them both out below. Read More »

The big character reveal that some people probably wanted to avoid in the last full trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2 is front and center in this new one. So that’s a warning, but at this point, it seems like the studio is determined to give that particular point away. The trade-off is that this trailer for the film is absolutely gigantic, with a lot more information about precisely who and what Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and the dragon Toothless will be facing this time. The image above is a hint, and it also involves a sheep. That’s all you need to know — check out the new How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer below. Read More »
For the first time in nearly a decade, 2014 won’t provide fans with a Pixar film. The closest thing is probably Planes: Fire and Rescue, the sequel to 2013′s Cars spinoff, Planes. (Disney’s Big Hero 6, out in November, is in the mix too, but there’s no trailer yet). In this sequel, Dusty (Dane Cook) is forced to leave racing and decides to go for a more noble calling, “Fire and Rescue.” However, it’ll be tough to gain the respect of his peers coming from such a pampered lifestyle.
Below, check out a brand new Planes Fire and Rescue trailer, some new characters (who are Cars, not Planes) as well as a list of new cast members including Ed Harris, Wes Studi, Fred Willard, Jerry Stiller, Erik Estrada, John Michael Higgins, Hal Holbrook, Kevin Richardson and Patrick Warburton. It opens July 18. Read More »

Wreck-It Ralph may not have been a box office juggernaut on the order of Frozen, but it was still a pretty big hit when it landed in 2012. Talk of a potential Wreck-It Ralph sequel began swirling not long afterward, but there’s been no official confirmation that any such movie would actually happen — until now.
Composer Henry Jackman has revealed that a Wreck-It Ralph 2 is being written as we speak, although it remains a mystery when we’ll actually get to see the movie. Hit the jump to read his comments.
