With some advanced screenings and a premiere out of SXSW behind us, the buzz on Richard Linklater‘s new comedy Everybody Wants Some!! (yes, the title has two exclamation points) has been extremely positive. Our own Jacob Hall just caught the film down in Austin, Texas and he called it “a joyous film, a comedy tinged with an invisible melancholy.”
In anticipation of the film’s release on April 1st, a new red band trailer has arrived to show off the wild party that drives this spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused. Of course, beware of the salty language and college party nudity that lies within this trailer, making it NSFW or any libraries that you crazy college students might be using to procrastinate.

Melissa McCarthy may not be returning for the Gilmore Girls revival, to the endless disappointment of Gilmore Girls fans, but don’t worry — she’s got plenty of other stuff to keep her busy in the coming months. Not only will she appear as one of the new fab four in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, she’s also starring in The Boss, which reunites her with her Tammy director (and real-life husband) Ben Falcone.
McCarthy plays Michelle Darnell, a hotshot CEO whose extravagant lifestyle comes crashing down when she’s arrested for insider trading. She emerges from prison disgraced and discouraged, but finds an unlikely path back to the top in the form of Girl Scout cookies. Or rather, “Darnell’s Darlings Brownies.” Kristen Bell plays Michelle’s reluctant business partner, and Peter Dinklage shows up as… unclear, but the role involves him wielding a sword. Watch The Boss red-band trailer after the jump. Read More »
After making a huge splash by bringing his small screen character Borat to the big screen in one of the most unique and hilarious comedies of the past 20 years (despite endless quotes from everyone nearly ruining it), Sacha Baron Cohen hasn’t exactly captured the magic of that feature film outing, but he’s not giving up.
The latest comedy from the creator and star of Da Ali G Show is The Brothers Grimsby, a conventional action comedy starring Mark Strong as one of the greatest spies working today, who suddenly finds his career and life in jeopardy when his estranged, screw-up of a brother shows up to reconnect with him. A new Brothers Grimsby red band trailer has just surfaced, taking full advantage of the roster of characters Cohen has played before in order to help audiences get interested in this new one.

For five seasons, Key & Peele was one of the funniest shows on television, a beautifully produced sketch comedy series that was literate and lewd, silly and sly, observational and controversial. Now, Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key look to continue that legacy with Keanu, which already looks like a frontrunner for one of 2016’s funniest movies.
Goofy jokes? Confrontational racial comedy? Gun battles? Drugs? The cutest kitten in the history of ever? Yeah, the new Keanu red band trailer has it all.

“Are you in need of holiday cheer? Rejoice! For Deadpool’s all new Christmas trailer is here! It’s Christmas Day, when Deadpool decorates with trailers Red & Green. One that’s “nice” and one that’s “naughty” (the way it’s meant to be seen).”

Just when you thought you were safe from the parody movies of Marlon Wayans, the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Black arrived last month. The comedy is a parody of the popular Fifty Shades of Grey, with Wayans taking the title role of Mr. Black, who begins a provocative sexual relationship with an innocent reporter (Kali Hawk).
Now a new Fifty Shades of Black red band trailer has arrived, and along with the goofiness of the spoof this time comes some real raunchy comedy and plenty of f-bombs, making this NSFW. While this doesn’t look like it’s a quality parody, I will say this one at least looks better than all of the previous Wayans parodies (with the exception of the first Scary Movie). Read More »

Neither of the main characters in The Nice Guys are police officers, but the film undoubtedly falls into the familiar “buddy cop” formula that we’ve seen time and time again – two mismatched guys who don’t like each other and have little in common are forced to work together to solve a case. We’ve seen this story few dozen times before. However, The Nice Guys is the latest film from Shane Black, who is the undisputed master of the “frenemies solve a case” subgenre of action/comedy. He’s like a chef who always makes the same dish, but the flavors are so good that you don’t care.
The first red band trailer for The Nice Guys is here and it looks like a Shane Black movie through and though. Which is a good thing, because he is really, really good at making movies.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Old men saying inappropriate things and college girls saying overtly sexual remarks back to them is always hilarious, right? That’s what Lionsgate seems to think with the Dirty Grandpa red-band trailer, which shows off the R-rated side of this road trip comedy.
Zac Efron is about to get married, but since his grandmother just passed away, he’s helping out his grandfather (Robert De Niro) by driving him down to Florida. But what was supposed to be an innocent bonding trip has turned into a spring break of debauchery, as all the old man wants to do is get laid. Sounds like a crack-up, right? Wrong.

Christmas means many things to many people. For some, it’s about spending time with loved ones. For others, it’s a joyful celebration of traditions sacred and silly. The holiday can also be a time to reflect on the year that was, if you’re the introspective type, or an enjoy a well deserved break if you’ve been working hard.
For the “ride or die homies” of The Night Before, Christmas is a combination of all of the above — but the way they celebrate it isn’t exactly the stuff of wholesome family classics. Instead, the three best friends (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, and Anthony Mackie) go out on the town for a wild night powered by staggering amounts of booze and drugs.
Along the way they run into all sorts of bizarre situations made even more bizarre by the effects of all those intoxicants, and encounter all manner of colorful characters including ones played by Michael Shannon and Ilana Glazer. Watch the latest The Night Before red-band trailer after the jump. Read More »
