Most movies about teachers are meant to be inspirational in some way. Some new teacher comes in and has to figure out how to reach some troubled youth. But every now and then comes a comedy that just lets the people who get paid far too little to deal with far too much bullshit cut loose. Fist Fight is trying to be one of those comedies.
In one of the most peculiar comedy match-ups, Ice Cube and Charlie Day star in this comedy about two teachers who are about to come to blows. After high school English teacher Mr. Campbell (Day) crosses his rough and tough colleague Mr. Strickland (Cube), it results in the latter teacher being fired. So the only logical thing to do is for Mr. Strickland to challenge Mr. Campbell to a fight in the parking lot. And this fight isn’t the only inappropriate thing about to happen on school grounds. You’ll see what I mean when when you watch the Fist Fight red band trailer. Read More »

As excited as we are to meet the new leads of Pacific Rim: Uprising, including the lead character played by John Boyega, we’ve also been curious about which stars from the original might resurface. Although producer Guillermo del Toro has promised that “a lot” of familiar faces would return, more concrete details have been hard to come by. But now that shooting on Pacific Rim: Uprising is officially underway, a new set photo might have revealed some big news.
It looks like Rinko Kikuchi will be back as Mako Mori, along with Charlie Day and Burn Gorman as previously rumored. Not only that, it seems Karl Urban may be part of the cast as well.
UPDATE: Karl Urban has responded to rumors of his being in Pacific Rim: Uprising. See what he had to say below. Read More »

Why should teenagers get to be the only ones embroiled in high school drama? In Fist Fight, the battle is between two teachers. Mr. Campbell is your typical Charlie Day character, which is to say (as Kumail Nanjiani puts it in the trailer) he is “probably a nice guy, but a bit of a worm and a sneak.” And Mr. Strickland is your typical Ice Cube character, which is to say he’s got a “scary but effective” reputation as a hothead. When a conflict between them escalates to the point of physical violence, everyone in school — from the teachers to the students — gets invested.
Fist Fight is the feature directing debut of Richie Keen (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and features a top-notch comedic cast including Jillian Bell and Tracy Morgan. And unlike a lot of comedy trailers we’ve seen lately, this one looks like it might actually live up to the potential of the talent involved. Watch the Fist Fight trailer below. Read More »
Early next year, we return to the city of brotherly love to see what kind of shenanigans the crew of Paddy’s Pub will be up to when the 12th season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia premieres on FXX. It’s crazy to think that the series has been running this long, and it even has an order for its 13th and 14th seasons already placed. And if this new trailer for this season is an indicator, things are only going to get more out of hand.
A red-band It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 12 trailer has just popped up online, and it’s far more raunchy than anything we’ve seen from Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito. I’m talking about words that you normally don’t hear on cable channels other than HBO, Cinemax and Showtime, plus a couple of dildos, some discussion of being paid for sex and much more.
See all the madness below, but beware that the language is totally NSFW. Read More »

Maybe I’m a man of simple pleasures, but I find it impossible to hate the trailer for any movie that features Charlie Day doing an old-timey boxer pose. So I certainly don’t hate the Fist Fight trailer, which looks silly and lowbrow and dumb, but also…maybe funny? I see a lot of funny people in this footage, so this is a situation where I’m fully prepared to keep my fingers crossed.

In 2009, actor John Krasinski made his directorial debut with an adaptation of David Foster Wallace‘s Brief Interviews with Hideous Men. The film, which does feature some good performances, wasn’t received particularly well. Seven years after its premiere, Krasinski returned to the Sundance Film Festival with his second feature as a director, The Hollars, which stars himself, Anna Kendrick, Margo Martindale, Sharlto Copley, Charlie Day, Richard Jenkins, Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Below, watch The Hollars trailer.

The 11th season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia just came to a close in March with a two-part finale that saw the gang stranded on a Christian cruise liner. A 12th season of the comedy series that began on FX and moved to the recently created sister channel FXX has already been ordered, but that hasn’t stopped the network from ordering a 13th and 14th season.
Not only is that good news for fans of the Paddy’s Pub crew that consists of Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, Kaitlin Olson, Glenn Howerton and Danny DeVito, but the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia renewal also puts the show in TV history record books. Find out how below. Read More »

Summer may almost be over, but the latest road trip with the Griswold family in Vacation doesn’t begin until next week. Ed Helms plays a grown up Rusty Griswold, taking his wife (Christina Applegate) and their two sons on a trip in order to help bring them closer together, just like when he was a kid.
Now a final NSFW red band trailer makes one last attempt to get audiences on board the new family truckster for a trip that is more raunchy and rowdy than any of the preceding National Lampoon titles. This isn’t the best trailer for the movie, but it does have some amusing moments, especially from then new Griswold kids.
Watch the final Vacation trailer after the jump!
