Knowing the comedy of Amy Schumer and Judd Apatow, you get the feeling there aren’t many clips from the upcoming Trainwreck that are safe for work. They did manage to find one, though. It features Bill Hader‘s character calling Schumer’s character the day after they sleep together. Notoriously promiscuous, Schumer’s character and her friend (Vanessa Bayer) are very confused at the seemingly normal, kind gesture. Hader’s friend, on the other hand, is loving it. Oh, and his friend is NBA MVP Lebron James.
Trainwreck opens July 17. Watch the first Trainwreck clip below. Read More »
The film that most directly influences May’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In that film, the group known as S.H.I.E.L.D. falls when its revealed that they’ve long been infiltrated by the evil group, Hydra. At the end of that movie, S.H.I.E.L.D is almost totally gone and in the new movie, it’s The Avengers who are protecting the world.
Of course, we know S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t totally gone because there’s a TV show, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, that’s still going on. In the show’s first season, we saw how the events of The Winter Soldier directly influenced and changed the show and in Tuesday’s episode, One Door Closes, we’ll see more of what happened on that day. The show flashs back to “The Day S.H.I.E.L.D Fell” to show what Bobbi (Adrianne Palicki) was doing that day along with Mack (Henry Simmons) and even Agent Robert Gonzales (Edward James Olmos), who kept S.H.I.E.L.D. together after the attacks.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably heard about the special Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special that aired this past Sunday night. It was a three and a half hour trip down memory lane, featuring a true dream-team of comedy’s elite.
Among the many highlights came early in the show when a 5-minute video montage was shown of cast members’ first auditions. Not fake auditions, like we’ve seen in the past. The actual, real auditions for stars like Will Ferrell, Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Jimmy Fallon as well as classic cast members like Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner and John Belushi. Here, you can see them in the auditions that would change their lives forever. It’s pretty special.
As a bonus though, there are also auditions from people who didn’t make the cut. They’re people you’ve definitely heard of who auditioned, but didn’t make the show.
Below, check out the Saturday Night Live auditions video as well a few of the other highlights from the special including Celebrity Jeopardy, Wayne’s World and more. Read More »
Men have got it tough. Seriously. There are so many movies making us look terrible. We look like bad guys. Like we’re stupid. Every single movie you can think of has a man in it who is evil or dumb. This is a problem that has to stop! There’s not a single movie out there with a man who is smart. Or a hero. Or depicting someone with morals. We’re always Darth Vader and Kevin James rolled into one and it’s not fair.
The biggest problem is this new Frozen movie. You know Frozen, that movie that came out in 2013 which Fox News says is new. Forget that part of the reason it was such a hit was the depiction of women as strong and independent. The real problem is the men of Frozen are stupid! What kind of message is that? This has to stop! Watch a hilariously off-base Fox News Frozen video below, in which the hosts seem to actually believe stuff like the sarcasm above. Read More »
