Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse return as young costumed heroes (and a villain) in Kick-Ass 2, which sees the characters from Matthew Vaughn’s film grown up a bit, but still getting into high school-style turf wars. Problem is, there are super-sized egos involved, and the public appearance of Kick-Ass and Hit Girl has inspired a new wave of costumed vigilantes.
Never Back Down director Jeff Wadlow stepped in to direct this story, which adds Jim Carrey in a nearly unrecognizable role as a new costumed anti-hero, Colonel Stars and Stripes. The tone is a bit different this time, as the film looks a little bit brighter, and noticeably cheaper. And, as this red-band trailer shows, the vulgar jokes might not be as sharp. But this might be worth a shot for Carrey’s work alone, and if you want to see Mintz-Plasse leading a giant gang of weirdo villains, you’re in the right place. Read More »

One of the biggest selling points for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is its equally incredible cast. Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin, and James Gandolfini are some of the most well-respected and popular actors working today. Among them there are two comedy legends, two brutal TV gangsters, and multiple award winners. It’s a murderer’s row of talent.

Latino Review reports Marvel is reportedly courting both Jim Carrey and/or Adam Sandler for yet-to-be revealed parts in James Gunn‘s 2014 film, Guardians of the Galaxy.

Jeff Wadlow‘s superhero sequel, Kick-Ass 2, is one of the many sequels being released in 2013 people are forgetting about. When he’s put up against Superman, Iron Man and Thor, it makes sense though. Kick-Ass is just a guy with no powers and the will to stop crime. The little superhero that starred in Matthew Vaughn’s 2010 film returns this year with most of the surviving cast returning (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloe Grace-Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse) along with several new characters, played by the likes of Donald Faison, John Leguizamo and Jim Carrey.
The latter, once the biggest comedy star on the planet, shows up in the first official image from the film. Check it out below. Read More »
Bobby and Peter Farrelly made their directorial debuts, and cemented their comic careers, with the 1994 comedy Dumb and Dumber, starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as a couple of well-meaning but doltish best friends who embark on a disastrous road trip from Providence to Aspen.
The film was a smash, thanks in part to the new popularity of Jim Carrey, and in the past couple years the vague prospect of a legit sequel by the Farrelly Brothers has turned into a script and tentative plans to shoot. Originally announced to roll film in September of last year, Dumb and Dumber To has been pushed back, but will still go on, according to Peter Farrelly. Read More »
