It’s been awhile since there has been a straight-up comedy set in space. We’re not even going to talk about The Martian for that conversation, and Guardians of the Galaxy wasn’t just a comedy. Feel free to offer up some other options in the comments, but I believe the last genuine comedy set in space was The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. But that’s about to change.
Zach Galifianakis, Seth Rogen and Bill Hader are slated to start in The Something, a comedy that takes place in space, following a group of male astronauts, who, after being stuck in space for years, come upon another ship. Find out more below. Read More »

The first Neighbors pitted new parents Mac (Seth Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) against the fraternity next door, led by Teddy (Zac Efron). In the sequel, the couple finds themselves enlisting their the help of their old nemesis to fight what might be an even bigger threat: a sorority next door.
Chloë Grace Moretz, Kiersey Clemons, and Beanie Feldstein play three of the ladies of Kappa Nu, who aren’t about to let a little thing like furious neighbors stop them from throwing epic ragers. Adding to the pain this time is the fact that the girls are, well, girls. “With the sorority girls, it’s like a glimpse into their daughter’s future, and it terrifies them,” Byrne has said. So what exactly has the Radners so spooked? Find out with the first Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising trailer after the jump.
UPDATE: An international trailer for Neighbors 2 has just hit, and you can watch it below.

This week AMC presented a panel on Preacher for the Television Critics Association. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and showrunner Sam Catlin were on the panel with cast members to discuss their adaptation of Garth Ennis’s comic. Fans will notice the show diverge from the comics immediately in the pilot, which Ennis himself approved.
“We talked with Garth and Garth very much encouraged us to make a lot of small changes and make it a good show first and foremost,” Goldberg said. “We want fans to get everything they loved of the comic and still get some twists and turns.” Read More »
Shirtless in short shorts sounds like the porn parody of Sleepless in Seattle about 22 years too late, but it’s actually the best way to describe the way Seth Rogen and Zac Efron appear in our first look at the comedy sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. Following up the 2014 summer comedy from Forgetting Sarah Marshall director Nicholas Stoller, the movie sees Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne facing a new challenging neighbor, and it looks like plenty of partying is in store for this installment as well.

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.

The Wackness wasn’t Jonathan Levine‘s directorial debut, but it was the first film we saw from him. Following the long-delayed All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, Levine wrote and directed the coming-of-age film set in the early ’90s. The Wackness was packed with music of its time, with no shortage of Biggie songs, and lots of old classics, such as Donovan’s “Season of the Witch.” Levine’s love for music, and his knack for using music to tell a story, rang loud and clear in The Wackness.
Over the years he’s continued to use music rather effectively. As famous as some of the songs are in his films, they never distract from the emotional or comedic beats they’re serving. The Wackness, 50/50, Warm Bodies, and the director’s newest film, The Night Before, are packed with great tunes. Levine’s Christmas comedy features plenty of cheerful holiday music, but there are also some modern hits that play a major part in the story. There’s a Miley Cyrus performance, for example, that is more than a cameo.
At the junket for The Night Before — which stars Seth Rogen (Steve Jobs), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (50/50), and Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker) — we decided to discuss with Levine his love for music and why he chose certain songs over the course of his career. Read our Jonathan Levine interview after the jump. Read More »
It’s safe to say that we all need some laughs, and if this past weekend’s fantastic episode of Saturday Night Live hosted by Elizabeth Banks wasn’t enough, this week brings the R-rated holiday comedy The Night Before to help out.
And if the recent red-band trailer didn’t convince you to see what looks like a truly hilarious flick for the holidays, the opening scene from the movie has been released, featuring touching narration by Tracy Morgan, not long after he hosted his own episode of SNL. However, it’s NSFW (due to language, not nudity), so beware of where you are watching it. Read More »
If for some reason you haven’t acquainted yourself with comedic genius Nathan Fielder and his Comedy Central program Nathan for You, you’re missing out on some of the most brilliant comedy that has been done in the past decade. But even if you don’t think you’ve experienced what Nathan Fielder has to offer, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of his exploits such as Dumb Starbucks or the viral video of a pig rescuing a goat from drowning.
Starting next week, you’ll be able to see Fielder in a supporting role in the R-rated holiday comedy The Night Before, and to help hype the film, the comedian sat down for an awkward interview with the film’s three main stars: Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie. And things get pretty weird. Read More »
