We place the great artists on pedestals. We like to look at the finished work, whether it be a painting or an album or a movie, and discuss the intentions of the creator. The author, the sculptor, and the film director are often enigmas in the eyes of those who take in they work. How they achieve the end results, their actual process, is so often a mystery to those outside of their cast and crew.
So yes, listening to Jonah Hill talk about being directed by Martin Scorsese (a textbook definition of the phrase “living legend”) on the set of The Wolf of Wall Street is something you may need in your life.

Todd Phillips‘ War Dogs might become one of the summer’s few pleasant surprises. Critics are somewhat mixed on the film, but the reviews are far more positive than what we read for The Hangover sequels, and they’re about on par with the reviews for Phillips’ Old School, Starsky & Hutch, and Road Trip, his more well-liked movies. Jonah Hill is receiving praise for his performance as obnoxious gunrunner Efraim Diveroli, but originally, Shia LaBeouf was going to play the character.
Below, find out why LaBeouf and Jesse Eisenberg didn’t lead the War Dogs cast.

Note: With Sausage Party in theaters this weekend, we’re re-running our review from San Diego Comic-Con.
Seth Rogen has said on a number of occasions that the desire to make his own animated movie came from a love for Pixar movies. Even though he didn’t exactly grow up on them as a child (he was already 14 when the first Toy Story arrived in 1995), he’s still loved them immensely as an adult. However, if Rogen was going to attempt to make his version of a Pixar movie, you know it wasn’t going to be anywhere near family friendly.
Sausage Party had a special screening here at Comic-Con last night, and the final result of years of development, test screenings and hard work is an outrageous comedy that brings the laughs hard, and all the most raunchy and raw hilarity hasn’t even been touched by the movie’s marketing.

Of all the information that came out of the infamous Sony hack a couple years ago, one of the most intriguing and ridiculous things we found out was Sony was tossing around the possibility of crossing over the 21 Jump Street franchise with Men in Black. After we let that thought simmer for a while, that actually sounded like a pretty brilliant idea. Since then, the film has been dubbed MiB 23 and recruited The Muppets director James Bobin to be at the helm. But apparently, the project is still far from a sure thing according to Jonah Hill.

Remember those junior high school dances of yore, when the boys would line up on one side of the room and the girls would line up on the other, and both sides would talk a big game but no one could actually bring themselves to actually get close to each other? That’s basically this first clip from Sausage Party, except of course we’re talking about sausages and buns, not guys and gals. Watch the Sausage Party clip below.

Let’s get this out of the way right now. If you’re already on board for the raunchy, R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, then you probably shouldn’t watch the new red band trailer that was just released. However, if you’re the kind of person that likes to watch all the trailers, then we can’t stop you from watching this latest tease that reveals much more about what happens after Frank the hot dog (voiced by Seth Rogen) learns what happens to food after it goes to the “great beyond” outside of the grocery store.
It’s up to you whether you watch the new red band Sausage Party trailer after the jump. Read More »

Todd Phillips has built his career on bro comedies, from Road Trip to Old School to the Hangover trilogy. His latest film, War Dogs, is in a similar vein, with Jonah Hill and Miles Teller as the buddies whose wacky hijinks spiral out of control until they’re in over their heads, but this time there’s a fascinating real-world twist: it’s all based on a true story.
Based on the Rolling Stone article “Arms and the Dudes” by Guy Lawson, War Dogs centers on two Miami 20somethings who go into the lucrative business of gunrunning. They work their way up the food chain, raking in bigger and bigger sums of money and getting into more and more danger, until they land a $300 million contract from the U.S. government to arm the Afghan military. Watch the new War Dogs trailer below.

In about a month, we’ll all be chomping down on some tasty cookout food when Independence Day rolls around in July. Thankfully, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s animated comedy Sausage Party isn’t hitting theaters before that to dissuade us from murdering all the food we eat.
A new Sausage Party TV spot has a bunch of new footage from the animated movie that imagines a world where humans don’t know that food is alive. Foods like hot dogs, carrots, bananas, peanut butter and anything you can think of come to life just like the toys in Toy Story. But in Sausage Party, rather than being cherished by humans, they’re viciously prepared, cooked and eaten, which comes as a big shock to the innocent food that usually celebrates being bought in the grocery store.

In addition to bringing some comedy to summer this weekend with Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, we’ll get more of Seth Rogen to close out the summer later this year with his raunchy animated adventure Sausage Party. The film is basically an R-rated Pixar movie following a group of friends who just so happen to be foods in a grocery store. Their lot in life is to be chosen by people and taken home in a glorious manner. But then they learn what people really do with food when they get it home, and that’s when all hell breaks loose.
A new Sausage Party trailer has arrived, and it’s basically the green band version of the red band trailer that was released a little while back. However, there are some new laughs to be had, especially at the end. Watch the new Sausage Party trailer after the jump. Read More »

When Jonah Hill first burst onto the scene, he seemed like just another Seth Rogen type — indeed, one of his first breakout roles was as, essentially, a Rogen stand-in in Superbad. But over the years, he’s matured into a fine dramatic actor as well, scooping up a pair of Oscar nominations for Moneyball and The Wolf of Wall Street, and even branched out into writing with the Jump Street movies and the TV show Allen Gregory. Now he’s getting ready to open yet another new chapter in his Hollywood career, this time as a director.
Having worked with some pretty impressive directors over the years, from Martin Scorsese to Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Hill is preparing to step behind the camera himself for the very first time with Mid ’90s, a mid-’90s coming-of-age dramedy that he also wrote.
