When Judd Apatow‘s R-rated comedies started making hundreds of millions of dollars, Hollywood took notice and emulated them left and right. But fans knew that the director of The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up had been making us laugh long before that. He helmed two of the most underrated network series of all time, Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared; produced films like The Cable Guy and Anchorman; and worked on TV shows such as The Critic and The Larry Sanders Show. This was a comedic genius that deserved all the praise heaped upon him.

In celebration of his latest film, This is 40, Gallery 1988 Melrose in Los Angeles is hosting a Judd Apatow tribute show featuring art based on films he had a hand in. So, in addition to everything mentioned above, there’s also art inspired by Superbad, Pineapple Express, Talladega Nights, Walk Hard, and Step Brothers. The show opens Tuesday December 4 and remains on display through December 30.

After the jump, check out a ton of art from the show from artists such as Glen Brogan, Todd Slater, Joshua Budich, Jason Liwag, Jason Edminston, Dave Perillo, Anthony Petrie, Jeff Boyes, Joey Spiotto and others, including some exclusives, and find out how you can attend. Read More »

After seemingly years of studio opposition, Anchorman 2 is finally becoming a reality. So said San Diego’s #1 news anchor, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), when he stopped by Conan Wednesday night to play some jazz flute and make the official announcement. Watch the video after the jump. Read More »

Short of putting a Blu-ray on your shelf or a poster on your wall, quoting a movie in conversation is one of the best ways to pay tribute to movies you love. We’ve all dropped a quote from a movie into casual conversation and then gotten a nod of recognition from someone who is in on the joke. What’s cool about these posters by designer Jerod Gibson is that it takes those quotes and puts them on a pedestal, making the words the stars of iconic films like the original Star Wars Trilogy, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure and Ghostbusters. After the jump, check out a huge gallery of images and more. Read More »

What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film. After the jump we’ve included 32 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness.

Anchorman

We’ve talked about the possibility of an Anchorman sequel for quite some time, and early this year it seemed like the film had a chance to see the light of day. But Paramount passed, and now director Adam McKay offers both the final word (more than likely) on the sequel, and teases a detail that might make you mourn it just a little bit more. Read More »

Anchorman

We’ve been hearing about a possible Anchorman sequel for the last year. Most of the original cast members and creative team have expressed interest in making a sequel, but with the popularity of the film’s three main stars on the rise, I’ve pessimistically ruled it off as a possibility.
