Dead Snow 2 Red vs Dead trailer

Poor Martin. The only survivor of the first Dead Snow discovers in Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead that his troubles are far from over. You see, the infected arm he had to hack off in the last film has since been replaced by a Nazi zombie arm, and it’s got a mind of its own. Specifically, a mind determined to carry out Hitler’s orders.

Fortunately, he’s got some allies. Martin (Vegar Hoel) is joined this time by a trio of Americans (played by Martin Starr, Jocelyn DeBoer, and Ingrid Haas) who call themselves the “Zombie Squad.” Watch the Dead Snow 2 Red vs Dead trailer after the jump.

vacation-tv-reunion

Everyone loves a comedy reunion, it seems, and Vacation fans get a couple different versions. First there was that Old Navy ad campaign that brought Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, and Juliette Lewis back together to hawk trousers. Then there’s the new Vacation film that casts Ed Helms as the grown Griswold son, and will feature cameos from Chase and D’Angelo as the elder Griswolds. Now the two actors have a script commitment from ABC for the new comedy series that will cast them as a couple forced to raise their grandchildren. It’s not explicitly a Vacation TV reunion, but it’s close enough.

And while we’re at it, Leslie Mann is in talks to play Audrey Griswold in the new Vacation film. Read More »

Skeleton Twins

Editor’s note: This is our review of The Skeleton Twins from this year’s Sundance Film Festival. It opens in limited release this weekend so we are rerunning. 

When Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig were building their careers on Saturday Night Live, they played multiple characters every single week. That took incredible acting chops. Though they’ve since left the show and are concentrating mostly on comedy films, Craig Johnson‘s second film The Skeleton Twins proves these skilled comedic performers can be dramatic as well.

The Skeleton Twins is about estranged siblings, Maggie and Milo, who haven’t spoken in a decade. After they are reunited by tragedy their relationship is quickly rekindled, but deep old wounds re-open. That may sound overly solemn and, at its heart, The Skeleton Twins is certainly a drama. But you don’t cast Hader and Wiig just to cry and be depressed. The chemistry they built for years on TV sizzles on the big screen in characters with an exuberant realism. The movie itself is good, but Hader and Wiig make it great. Read More »

First Look at ‘Ted 2′ Features More Flash Gordon

Ted Mark Wahlberg Header

A lot of things about Seth MacFarlane‘s 2012 film Ted could be considered a surprise. The fact it was such a huge hit for one. Ted grossed $218 million domestic against a budget of $50 million and became one of the top 10 highest grossing R rated comedies of all time. Personally though, the biggest surprise was the way MacFarlane used Flash Gordon in the film. Both Ted and Mark Wahlberg’s character, John, were fans of the cult ’80s sci-fi flick and the director cast Flash himself, Sam Jones, in a hilarious, extended cameo.

Well MacFarlane is back in Boston, filming Ted 2 for release June 26, 2015 and star Mark Wahlberg himself released the first set photo. In it, we see that Flash is still a big part of John’s life. Check out one of the first Ted 2 set photos below. Read More »

Playing it Cool trailer
“Hey, if that other guy can do it…”

When Chris Evans talks about wanting to leave acting behind, maybe he’s talking about movies like Playing it Cool, once called A Many Splintered Thing. The romcom follows a screenwriter who just wants to write action, but is talked into writing a romcom… and somewhere along the way, this self-professed love-hater falls for a charming young woman (Michelle Monaghan). In truth, this doesn’t look bad, just terribly lacking in character. And that’s despite a great supporting cast, which includes Aubrey Plaza, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, Luke Wilson, Philip Baker Hall, Giovanni Ribisi and Martin Starr. Check out the Playing it Cool trailer below. Read More »
