You didn’t really expect Michael Moore to just sit out the madness of this presidential election cycle, did you? The filmmaker and activist has announced a late-breaking October surprise in the form of Michael Moore in Trumpland, based on his own one-man play. The movie will have its world premiere in New York City tonight (Tuesday, October 18), exactly three weeks before the November 8 election, and officially begin its theatrical run tomorrow.

This weekend brings the first episode of the 42nd season of Saturday Night Live, with Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie hosting. This will be the first season without Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah in years, and it will also have two new head writers in control of the night’s sketches, and three new cast members. But there’s one more big change coming this season.
While recent years have seen presidential candidate Donald Trump played by the recently departed Taran Killam, followed by the return of Darrell Hammond in the role to allow Killam to play former candidate Ted Cruz, this season will put someone else in the role, and he isn’t a cast member. Alec Baldwin will be playing Donald Trump on this season of Saturday Night Live, and he’ll be going head-to-head with recent Emmy winner Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton in a debate sketch this weekend.
See a promo for the arrival of Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live below. Read More »
Sunday night after the Oscars, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel had his usual star-studded show to follow Hollywood’s biggest night. There was plenty of fun to be had, from the premiere of a deleted scene from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice featuring Kimmel himself discovering the true identity of Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne, to the latter star helping to sneak Matt Damon into the show.
But outside of comic book jokery and the usual Matt Damon feud shenanigans, Jimmy Kimmel also rounded up Broadway and big screen duo Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane for a new take on The Producers, this time turning Bialystock & Bloom into political consultants who concoct a plan to make money off of a candidate who is “a real trainwreck, a schmuck, a putz, a real Grade A, world-class, gold-plated nincompoop.” Yeah, you know who they’re talking about.

Throughout the week of Back to the Future Day, there were tons of tribute videos, mash-ups, parodies and promotions happening to take advantage of the celebration of the fictional importance of October 21st, 2015. And even though we’ve had our last round of Back to the Future Bits to cover as much as we could regarding the important day in time travel history, this latest video was just too impressive to pass up.
One fan has updated Back to the Future Part II to take place in the real 2015. This isn’t like that satirical animated sketch that made fun of the real 2015 we live in now. Instead, this takes footage from the movie and updates it with a couple key 2015 details: Jurassic World and Donald Trump. And if you’re a Back to the Future Part II fan, you can guess where each of them come into play. Read More »

Last night, protesters gathered outside 30 Rock in New York City to protest presidential candidate Donald Trump hosting Saturday Night Live, and earlier this week there was an offer on the table from a website called DeportRacism.com offering $5,000 to any audience member in attendance to yell “Deport Trump” or “Trump is racist” during the live broadcast of the show. Add that to all the think pieces and uproar, and there was quite an upset concerning the politician hosting the sketch show for a second time.
However, in the end it didn’t really turn out to be worth all that much trouble because thanks to concerns over equal time on network television, Trump was only given 12 total minutes of screentime during the entire episode. And not only did this episode fail to heal any wounds that Trump might have created for some in his presidential campaign, but it just wasn’t a good episode in general.
Check out our full review of the Donald Trump Saturday Night Live episode below! Read More »
It’s two days after Back to the Future Day, and there was so much excitement that we’re still catching up on some of the cool stories and goodies that came out of the woodwork for the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future as well as the iconic day in the future from Back to the Future Part II.
One such fun detail that came to the surface seems just as topical as the day in time itself as franchise writer Bob Gale revealed what many fans noticed upon revisiting Back to the Future Part II in our current political climate. The nightmarish alternate 1985 version of Biff Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson) was based on Donald Trump, long before he decided to run for President of the United States of America. Read More »
Even before he became a candidate for President of the United States of America, billionaire Donald Trump was the butt of many jokes. More recently, the ribbing of Trump, his hair, his orange face, and his general attitude, have become quite the comedic spectacle as his campaign for the presidency is doing surprisingly (some would say disturbingly) well.
And now Trump will go where only a few active presidential candidates have gone before: Studio 8H. Today NBC announced that Donald Trump will return to Saturday Night Live as host. So when can you catch Donald Trump hosting Saturday Night Live for what’s sure to be one of the highest rated episodes recently? Read More »
With the release of Oliver Stone‘s Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps set for April, its publicity game is just starting to ramp up. Fitting then that Vanity Fair, former mag-home of the late Dominick Dunne, has a new photo shoot for this sequel of modern greed and murder courtesy of flashy, money-strapped photog Annie Leibovitz. After the jump is a new image of Michael Douglas‘s Gordon Gekko, a vacant behind-the-scenes vid of the shoot, and thoughts on Gekko’s lease on life post-prison.

Quick, who’s the most obvious cameo to have in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps? I guess I’ve already given it away right there in the headline, but you should have had the answer anyway: Donald Trump. The cameo is so on the nose that I would have disbelieved it if I only read the account from the UK’s Daily Mail tabloid. They make stuff up all the time, after all. But there are photos and everything, of Trump with returning star Michael Douglas, and director Oliver Stone.
We don’t know who Trump plays, but I’d put my money on ‘Donald Trump’. Hopefully it’ll be nothing but a very brief appearance; I’ll have enough trouble looking at Gordon Gekko twenty years later without dealing with the distraction of Trump’s hair. Nic Cage has nothing on that guy.
After the break, a whole slew of actors join the indie Waska.
