If you’ve watched an episode of Rick and Morty, then you know there are some positively insane things in the Adult Swim animated series. From weird aliens to intergalactic television to Mr. Poopybutthole, there’s always something totally strange in each and every episode. However, during a panel at Comic-Con, creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland delivered a video so totally weird you won’t believe the dialogue was lifted from a real life court case in Georgia.

If you’ve ever worked in an office, you’re surely familiar with the tradition of awkward holiday parties. You know the drill: everyone gets a little too drunk, says some things they’ll probably regret, maybe engages in an ill-advised hookup with a colleague, and then comes back to work the next morning hoping everyone else can just agree to pretend that nothing happened. But the office Christmas party in Office Christmas Party will surely put even your sauciest, most scandalous shindigs to shame.
Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Kate McKinnon, Courtney B. Vance, and Olivia Munn play co-workers who enjoy an epic rager for the holidays. How epic are we talking? Well, it involves drugs, burning Christmas trees, drunken Santas sledding down staircases, a reindeer drinking out of the toilet, and, perhaps most telling of all, the fantastically terrifying Jillian Bell. Watch the Office Christmas Party trailer below.

Last fall came the wonderful news that the movie-mocking comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000 was getting a revival. Shout! Factory had acquired the rights to the series and with creator Joel Hodgson they took the project to Kickstarter for fans to help support the return of the show. And the good news is fans will easily be able to watch it nearly anywhere.
Over the weekend at Comic-Con, Netflix announced they would be the official home of the new Mystery Science Theater 3000. So now you can get your movie mockery from your couch, on your iPad or even on your phone in the not too distant future. Find out more about the Mystery Science Theater 3000 Netflix deal after the jump. 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.

Bad Santa 2 was in on-again, off-again development for so many years that I kind of assumed it’d never happen. But the long-awaited comedy sequel got a shot in the arm last fall when Broad Green Pictures came on board, and now we’re just a few months away from finding out what Willie Soke has been up to for the past 13 years.
Billy Bob Thornton returns as Willie Soke, still a halfway decent thief and a truly terrible mall Santa. Willie’s former partner Marcus (Tony Cox) and Willie’s young buddy Thurman Merman (Brett Kelly) are also back from the first film. New to the cast this time are Kathy Bates as Willie’s tough-as-nails mother, Sunny Soke, and Christina Hendricks as Willie’s latest mark, Diane. Watch the first Bad Santa 2 teaser below. Read More »

The layers of meta are thick with Con Man. Alan Tudyk created and stars in the series about an actor famous for starring in a brilliant-but-cancelled sci-fi classic, with Nathan Fillion playing his good friend and former co-star. The show follows said actor as he tours geeky conventions — you know, not unlike the one Tudyk and Fillion stopped by this year to tease season 2 of Con Man.
It should come as no surprise that former Firefly stars Tudyk and Fillion got the warmest of receptions in Hall H at this year’s Comic-Con, where they offered audiences a glimpse of not just Con Man season 2 but Con Man: The Game and the Spectrum comic book series (inspired by the show-within-a-show that Fillion and Tudyk’s characters used to star in). Below, read our Con Man Comic-Con panel recap. Read More »
It’s hard to tell if Adam Sandler‘s four-picture deal with Netflix represents him being ahead of the curve in a major way or it it represents some sort of decline. Right now, making movies directly for a streaming service can’t help but feel like a descent into direct-to-video territory (although the independent productions Netflix routinely acquires don’t carry that possibly imaginary stigma), but who knows how future generations will feel on the matter. I won’t be watching The Ridiculous 6 or The Do-Over anytime soon, but they certainly represent a chapter in a future book chronicling the rise of streaming movies.
And now the Great Adam Sandler Netflix Experiment is set to continue with a film titled Sandy Wexler and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson is being dragged along for this one.

Seth Rogen has said on a number of occasions that the desire to make his own animated movie came from a love for Pixar movies. Even though he didn’t exactly grow up on them as a child (he was already 14 when the first Toy Story arrived in 1995), he’s still loved them immensely as an adult. However, if Rogen was going to attempt to make his version of a Pixar movie, you know it wasn’t going to be anywhere near family friendly.
Sausage Party had a special screening here at Comic-Con last night, and the final result of years of development, test screenings and hard work is an outrageous comedy that brings the laughs hard, and all the most raunchy and raw hilarity hasn’t even been touched by the movie’s marketing.
