The Daily Show Reunion

There was a time when the most biting political satire came from the one-two punch of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and its spin-off, The Colbert Report with Stephen Colbert. But all good things must come to an end. Stephen Colbert ended The Colbert Report to pursue his dream of hosting The Late Show after David Letterman retired from the program, and shortly thereafter, Jon Stewart decided it was time for him to move on to other things as well. Since then, Colbert and Stewart have had some brief, public reunions, but those were nothing like The Daily Show reunion that’s coming to The Late Show next week.

captain underpants trailer

In today’s edition of “Hey, do you want to feel old?”, we bring you the first trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, the big screen adaptation of author and illustrator Dav Pilkey‘s long-running children’s book series about a mean school principal hypnotized into thinking that he’s a superhero by two mischievous students. While the series began in the late ’90s, it’s a real staple for those who came of age in the ’00s…most of whom are now old enough to drive themselves to the theater for this movie.

You can check out the Captain Underpants trailer below.

CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS

If you’re an adult, your most highly anticipated superhero movies of 2017 probably include the hard-R Logan, the grim and gritty Justice League, maybe the playful Spider-Man: Homecoming if you’re feeling young at heart. But if you’re a small child, that list might be topped by Captain Underpants, an animated feature based on the long-running book series by Dav Pilkey.

Normally, it’d seem a bad sign for the film’s own director to describe his leading man as “sheer stupidity,” but in this case it’s a positive — we are, after all, talking about a superhero famous for running around in his underpants. A Captain Underpants first look photo has just been revealed, and you can click on through to check it out.  Read More »

Simmons and Terry Bradshaw (as himself) are among the candidates they consider, and Katt WilliamsJune SquibbKate Aselton, and Ving Rhames also star.

the clapper cast

There is something eminently watchable about Ed Helms, who has spent a significant portion of his career suffering onscreen for our amusement. With his role as a regular correspondent on The Daily Show, her perfected the act of playing a buffoon lacking any and all self-awareness. In The Office, he elevated his oblivious blowhard persona to the next level, often facing all sorts of painful repercussions for his actions. And then he appeared in the new Vacation and the Hangover sequels, which is punishment enough for ten comedians.

Now, he’s looking to play another sad-sack punching bag in The Clapper, which will team him up with Amanda Seyfried and writer/director Dito Montiel.

Love the Coopers trailer

We’re not anywhere near being able to say “Christmas is just around the corner.” It’s not even fall yet and all the pumpkin-spiced junk is hitting shelves along with Halloween decorations, but still, it’s just a little too kooky to even start thinking about Christmas.

However, when you’re a movie studio and you have to start promoting movies a few months out, you have to start parading the holiday movies way ahead of time. And that’s where the Love the Coopers trailer comes into play, showing off a new Christmas comedy featuring the likes of Ed Helms, Olivia Wilde, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried and more. Watch the trailer below! Read More »

New Vacation Family Truckster

There wouldn’t be a road trip in Vacation without a reliable vehicle for grown up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) and his family to take across the country from Chicago to Walley World in California. Well, reliable might be too strong of a word for the 2015 Tartan Prancer, the new family truckster in the comedy reboot.

Touted as the Honda of Albania, it comes with all the latest Albanian technology, like a CB radio, outside door handles that double as cupholders and a removable steering wheel. The Batmobile has nothing on the Tartan Prancer. Meet the new Vacation family truckster after the jump! Read More »
