The House TV Spots

In just a couple weeks, The House will be open for business as the R-rated comedy starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler hits theaters. The film follows two suburban parents faced with the prospect of having no money to send their daughter to college, so their friend Frank (Jason Mantzoukas) helps them open an illegal, underground casino in his house for a month in order to make enough money to afford tuition.

Instead of just quickly making the money, Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler take to the casino business like a couple characters in a Martin Scorsese movie, and when the casino starts getting the attention of local authorities and crime bosses, they find that they’re completely out of their league. You can see more of the shenanigans in the comedy in The House TV spots, now featuring Jeremy Renner. Read More »

Ferdinand Trailer

John Cena is quite an imposing guy with a bulky body that would intimidate anyone. So it makes sense for 20th Century Fox to have him voice a big bull named Ferdinand. What’s surprising is that bull is decidedly different from Cena’s wrestling alter ego.

Ferdinand tells the story of a kind-hearted bull raised by a Mexican family who has a heart of gold, loves watching TV, walks carefully through a china ship, and doesn’t want to hurt a thing. That doesn’t bode well for the bull when he’s ripped from his home and forced into a bullfighting ring, refusing to charge at the red cape being swung around by the matador.

Brigsby Bear Trailer

After debuting at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the first trailer for the quirky indie comedy Brigsby Bear has arrived, and it’s perfectly weird. Just like the movie.

Just in case the marketing campaign somehow manages to keep certain details about the narrative under wraps, we’ll leave certain story points below the trailer, since they don’t reveal any key pieces of information just yet. So if you want to go into this movie completely blind, don’t read anything below the Brigsby Bear trailer embed. You’ve been warned! Read More »

Cannonball Run Remake

A remake of the 1981 action comedy Cannonball Run has been in the works for years. The last update we heard on the project had Get Hard director and Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen writing and directing. But it appears that deal never came to fruition, as a new director and pair of writers have been brought on board the project.

Find out more about the changes behind the scenes of the Cannonball Run remake below. Read More »

olaf's frozen adventure trailer

Santa who? It’s Olaf who is going to save Christmas.

The lovable snowman voiced by Josh Gad in Disney’s massive hit Frozen (and even “massive” sounds like an understatement) gets a starring role in the upcoming short film Olaf’s Frozen Adventure. The 21-minute holiday special will premiere in front of Pixar’s new film Coco in November. And though we may be in the height of summer now, the trailer for the short film offers us a taste of an early Christmas.

a midsummer night's dream trailer

In William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the pompous actor Bottom has his head transformed into that of a donkey by the mischievous sprite known as Puck (or Robin Goodfellow, depending on how specific you want to get). Much hilarity ensues as Titania, the Queen of the Fairies, falls in love with him after being drugged with a love potion. Shakespeare’s funniest play is also his weirdest.

However, it seem that the new film version of the immortal comedy has decided that Bottom’s transformation into an “ass” should be taken literally. Which is why actor Fran Kranz can be seen with a big ‘ol butt for a head in the trailer.

Cars 3 Demolition Derby Clip

This week brings Pixar Animation’s Cars 3 to theaters, and while the excitement might not be high since the anthropomorphic vehicle franchise is largely regarded as the animation studio’s weakest series, the early buzz on the sequel is that it’s easily the best of the three movies. A new clip from Cars 3 has arrived online, introducing a new character who makes her debut in a sequence that is easily one of the most exciting and cool we’ve seen in the Cars universe.

Watch the Cars 3 demolition derby clip below…and see if you notice a certain Pixar Easter egg. Read More »

the keenan vortex review

(Each week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Silicon Valley season 4 by answering one simple question: what was the most awkward moment of the week?)

In any other episode, Richard Hendricks dabbing after delivering a terrible pun at the end of a business pitch would easily be the most cringe-worthy moment. Watching this dorky guy embarrass himself yet again is almost even worse than when Paul Ryan did it, and with even less of the self awareness.

But here, Richard does that right before trying out a new VR headset (created by a character played by Haley Joel Osment) and immediately vomiting all over the place. Only you, Richard. To his credit, he had warned them that he gets queasy and how did everyone else really think he was going to do, anyway? Richard can barely take this reality.

How Lightsabers Were Created

There is plenty of memorabilia out there inspired by the movies that we love. But there’s nothing better than getting your hands on a genuine prop from your favorite motion picture. The only problem is you usually have to empty out your bank account to get something like that into your hands. Now a couple props are up for auction that may be worth selling your house for.

The lightsaber that Luke Skywalker inherited from his father in Star Wars: A New Hope only to end up in the hands of Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now up for auction. But for you Star Wars fans who may not have enough money to pick up the coveted, elegant weapon, there’s a certain prop from the saga spoof Spaceballs that might be a little more easy on your wallet.

Tour De Pharmacy trailer

James Marsden looks right at home as an on-air sports journalist in the 1980s. With the big framed glasses and colourful attire, the actor, who typically shines in comedies, is covering the 1982 Tour De Pharmacy. A dangerous year in cycling, with everybody doping. In HBO’s new sports mockumentary, Andy SambergJohn CenaOrlando Bloom, and a long list of other familiar faces play athletes competing in the 1982 race – which looks every bit as ridiculous and as fun as 7 Days in Hell.

Below, watch the Tour De Pharmacy trailer.
