Chris Farley in Mission Impossible

Unfortunately, in the winter of 1997, we lost comedy star Chris Farley. The Saturday Night Live veteran was overcome by fame and glory, letting drugs and alcohol rule a life that brought laughter and joy to millions. We’ll never know just how much more comedy Farley could have brought to the masses in future film and television projects.

Thankfully though, Farley is still able to bring us a good laugh from the footage that we already have of the actor hamming it up in films like Tommy Boy and Black Sheep. And friend of the site Todd Spence decided to use Farley’s signature comedies to lighten up this weekend’s latest blockbuster, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.

Chris Farley takes the role of Tom Cruise with footage of the actor intercut with the trailer for the action sequel to humorous effect. It’s amusing throughout, but it’s the payoff at the end that makes it all worth it. See Chris Farley in Mission Impossible after the jump! Read More »

1408

Earlier today we reported that The Weinstein Co/Lionsgate had decided to release Michael Moore’s Sicko up against Disney/Pixar’s Ratatouille and Live Free or Die Hard. A bad release date if there ever was one. Now The Weinstein’s Dimension Films is finally making a smart move. They have moved the John Cusack Stephen King adaptation 1408 (photos, movie trailer) up from it’s original release date of July 13th 2007, to June 22nd. The film was originally set to go head to head with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and the Liv Tyler horror flick The Strangers. In the summer of sequels, no release date is prime property – everything is already taken.

1408 will not go up against the Steve Carell comedy Evan Almighty, Captivity and the limited release of Black Sheep. Wait a second… They have moved the film’s original release away from a huge family fantasy adaptation to go head to head with two other horror based films? I’m not quite sure this is a good idea after all.
