Zoolander 2 trailer

Ben Stiller had been trying to make Zoolander 2 for years. Originally going to be directed by the film’s co-writer and co-star, Justin Theroux, Stiller returned to the director’s chair for the comedy sequel. It’s been almost 15 years since the first movie, so we have to ask: is there still an appetite for these characters? After all these years apart from Derek (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson), are they still funny?

Find out what critics are saying about the film below.

mr. right

Mr. Right premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival. The film, written by Max Landis, was met with mostly negative reviews. Landis is coming off of last year’s American Ultra and Victor Frankenstein, and both movies failed to connect with audiences and critics. While I’d argue the stoner love story is better than it’s given credit for, Mr. Right looks like another potential miss from Landis. Watch the first Mr. Right trailer below.

Johnny Depp Donald Trump movie

As we’ve seen in Pirates of the CaribbeanAlice in WonderlandDark ShadowsTusk, Black Mass, and really too many other movies to count, Johnny Depp loves nothing more than to bury himself in makeup, wigs, and prosthetics and emerge as a total weirdo. But his latest role may be his most monstrous transformation yet.

No, we’re not talking about the Invisible Man in The Invisible Man. We’re talking about Johnny Depp playing Donald Trump in The Art of the Deal, a Funny or Die biopic (well, “biopic”) about the businessman turned presidential candidate. The entire 50-minute movie has just hit the web, and you can watch it after the jump.  Read More »

Goldie Hawn Amy Schumer

Not too long ago, we heard about First Wives Club stars Bette Midler, Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn reuniting for a comedy at Netflix called Divanation about three former members of a popular singing group who are forced to reunite after being apart for 30 years. And it sounds like Hawn is lining up another role that will take her back to the big screen as well.

News has surfaced that Goldie Hawn is in early talks to play Amy Schumer‘s mother in the untitled comedy from Warm Bodies and 50/50 director Jonathan Levine that we first heard about last August. Find out more about this Goldie Hawn Amy Schumer team-up after the jump. Read More »

preacher casts jackie earle haley

Preacher was never going to make it to television without undergoing its fair share of changes. Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s blasphemous and brutal comic series is very much a product of the ’90s, a story that gives political correctness a big middle finger being stomping its face in with a steel-toed cowboy boot. It’s certainly not unadaptable, but it features characters, storylines, and images that feel specifically built for a comic book, where things like “budget” and “good taste” don’t have to exist. To adapt Preacher is to recognize the spirit of the thing – to bottle its acerbic wit, grotesque slapstick, and surprising humanity – even if it means taking the story in a separate direction.

Now, a piece of casting news has revealed just how far from the source material writer/producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin and planning to stray. Academy Award nominee Jackie Earle Haley has joined the cast as a villainous character whose presence in the show’s first season defies the comic’s original storyline in a huge way.

Fuller House

The first Fuller House promo took us back into that familiar San Francisco living room, and the second Fuller House promo brought some old familiar faces back into our lives. Now, at long last, the first real Fuller House trailers offers us a glimpse at just how the Tanners and their friends are doing in the year 2016. As it turns out, they’re… not really doing that much differently than they were in the 1990s.

In the first footage from the show, Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) remarks, “Damn, we all still look good!” while he, Stephanie (Jodie Sweetin), Danny (Bob Saget), and Uncle Joey (Dave Coulier) resurrect their favorite catchphrases. And that’s not even getting into Kimmy (Andrea Barber), who hasn’t updated her dance moves or her slang vocab since about 1995. Watch the new Fuller House trailer after the jump.  Read More »

the clapper cast

There is something eminently watchable about Ed Helms, who has spent a significant portion of his career suffering onscreen for our amusement. With his role as a regular correspondent on The Daily Show, her perfected the act of playing a buffoon lacking any and all self-awareness. In The Office, he elevated his oblivious blowhard persona to the next level, often facing all sorts of painful repercussions for his actions. And then he appeared in the new Vacation and the Hangover sequels, which is punishment enough for ten comedians.

Now, he’s looking to play another sad-sack punching bag in The Clapper, which will team him up with Amanda Seyfried and writer/director Dito Montiel.

Keanu Green Band Trailer

With last month’s red-band trailer, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele‘s Keanu went from an unknown quantity to one of our most anticipated comedies of the year. In part, this was because Keanu looks like nothing so much as a feature-length version of a Key and Peele sketch: original and hilarious and brilliantly insightful about society’s expectations of black men. But mostly, if we’re being totally honest, it was because of that cat. Just look at those fuzzy little paws and those big wide eyes. How can you not fall in love with him?

Well, maybe if you didn’t get to see the first trailer because it was NSFW. Fortunately, for those who’ve yet to succumb to Keanu’s charms, a new green-band trailer has just arrived. Now the whole family can get together to coo over this pint-sized bundle of sheer cute. Watch the Keanu green-band trailer after the jump.  Read More »

hail caesar review

With Hail, Caesar!, Joel and Ethan Coen have crafted a movie that’s amusing but baffling, challenging but easygoing, and frivolous but about everything. It’s a film that wears its frustration on its sleeve like a badge of honor, inviting you to engage with it even as it tries to hard to keep you at a distance. It’s funny and sad, silly and serious. In other words, it’s a Coen brothers movie. We’re all probably going to like it a lot more in five years if we’re unsure about it now.

Now that Hail, Caesar! has been out for an entire weekend and you’ve had a chance to see it (because you definitely went out and saw the new Coen brothers film on its opening weekend, right?), let’s take this opportunity to explore how this Hollywood farce fits into the larger Coen canon. Like all of their films, this film reflects their larger worldview and shares ideas with some of their best work. Hail, Caesar!, halfway between Barton Fink and A Serious Man, a cousin of Inside Llewyn Davis and Miller’s Crossing, feels like it fills a specific gap in their overall filmography.

Naturally, spoilers lurk ahead.
