Kung Fu Panda 3 is only two months away from release and you know what that means – a whole new collection of “Pandas are fat!” jokes. Which is perfectly fine, if fat pandas doing fat panda things is your idea of great comedy. There are definitely some of you out there since they’ve made three of these things.
As we’ve seen in the previous trailers, the third film in DreamWorks Animation’s series will find Jack Black‘s unlikely (because he’s a fat panda) kung fu master reuniting with his long-lost fat panda father, returning to his ancestral fat panda home, and training his fat panda brethren how to kung fu so they can stop an evil villain who is surely going to underestimate an army of fat pandas. A new clip from the film has arrived online and it contains no shortage of fat panda jokes. Hey, if the formula isn’t broken…
Watch the new Kung Fu Panda 3 clip after the jump.

If seeing Jack Black bring a rather peculiar version of R.L. Stine to life in Goosebumps last month wasn’t your cup of tea, maybe you’ll be more pleased with his return to animation in Kung Fu Panda 3, arriving early next year.
A new Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer has just arrived, giving us more of Po (Black) being reunited with his estranged father (Bryan Cranston). As teased at the end of Kung Fu Panda 2, there’s a whole panda village waiting to meet Po, but the reunion isn’t all bamboo and laughs when a new evil threatens to obliterate them. Read More »

HBO has cancelled The Brink, the dark geopolitical satire starring Tim Robbins and Jack Black, after one season. Which isn’t too shocking at first glance, given that the series never garnered much buzz and earned only modest ratings. What makes it weird is that the news comes after HBO already renewed The Brink for Season 2, way back in July. More about The Brink cancellation after the jump. Read More »
Believe it or not, there was a time when movies were accompanied by blatant crossover theme songs, especially from rap artists in the 1990s, with music videos set within the world of the movie itself. Thankfully, that tradition has been revived today.
Nerdist rounded up Jack Black to perform with their very own Malik Forte, aka MF Bumps, to perform a 90s inspired Goosebumps rap, and it’s just as glorious as you would imagine. Watch it below! Read More »
Normally voice casting for animated movies is done far in advance, mostly because sometimes the performance from each actor voicing the characters informs how the animators will bring the character to life. And because voice recording is done in advance, it’s a rarity to hear of someone being replaced with just under five months before the film’s release.
But that’s exactly what’s happening with Kung Fu Panda 3. Previously, Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson was slated to voice a character named Mei Mei, a ribbon-dancing panda who is romantically obsessed with Po. However, Almost Famous star Kate Hudson has now been hired to replace her on the film. Read More »

When Sony acquired the rights to R.L. Stine‘s Goosebumps books, we wondered which volumes they’d choose to adapt. The original series yielded 62 novels between 1992 and 1997, and that’s not counting the various specials and spinoffs that were also part of the franchise.
The answer, it turned out, was all of them. In the movie, all the monsters Stine (played by Jack Black) has written about are real, and it’s only his careful protection that keeps him away from the rest of us. When his new neighbor Zach (Dylan Minnette) accidentally lets them loose, they must scramble to stop the monsters from taking over the town. Odeya Rush plays Stine’s daughter.

Every story ever told has a beginning, a middle, and a twist, according to Jack Black‘s fictionalized version of Goosebumps author R.L. Stine. In the film, the twist is that the Goosebumps books are actually prisons for the monsters created by Stine’s imagination, and opening the books releases the monsters.
A new Goosebumps international trailer is just packed with those monsters, as the books are opened and dozens of creatures escape. There’s a werewolf, a Yeti, the invisible boy, a giant preying mantis, and plenty more. Check out the footage and all the Goosebumps movie monsters below. Read More »
For people of a certain age, the Goosebumps books by R.L. Stine were the introduction to reading, and to horror, and probably to many other things. Now there’s a Goosebumps movie, with Jack Black as the lead, playing a fictionalized version of Stine himself, and Jillian Bell, Amy Ryan, Ken Marino, and Kumail Nanjiani playing characters who end up touched by the not-so-fictional world and creatures created by the writer. Check out the Goosebumps trailer below. Read More »

It’s a big challenge to keep a franchise fresh three installments in, but Kung Fu Panda 3 has one big surprise up its sleeve. It turns out Po (voiced by Jack Black) isn’t the last of his kind, as he previously believed. His dad Li (voiced by Bryan Cranston) is still very much alive, and residing among an entire community of big, fat, happy pandas.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. First, Po and Li have to find each other, and in the first Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer they do just that. It goes about as well as you’d think. Watch the Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer after the jump. Read More »
