future man trailer

With This is the End, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg achieved a tricky balancing act – they made a crude comedy that also functioned as a clever and frequently thrilling horror story. That particular skill set looks like it’ll come in hand for their new Hulu series Future Man, which looks to blend dick jokes and action-packed science fiction shenanigans.

Will the blend work this time around? How far can Rogen, Goldberg, and series star Josh Hutcherson push these disparate genres until they shatter? The Future Man trailer offers our first look at what could be one of 2017’s weirdest TV shows.

the disaster artist trailer

Could director and star James Franco win an Oscar for a movie about the worst movie ever made? It’s totally possible if the official The Disaster Artist trailer is anything to go by.

The teaser for The Disaster Artist just gave us a small taste of the comedy gold entrenched in the film based around the making of the 2003 low-budget movie The Room, the nonsensical brainchild of the probably-human, maybe-a-vampire Tommy Wiseau. But the full trailer gives us more than just bloopers — now we can dive into the mind of Wiseau and his co-dependent relationship with best friend and writer of The Disaster Artist memoir, Greg Sestero. If you dare.

Superbad trivia

It’s hard to believe, but yesterday marked the tenth anniversary of the theatrical release of Greg Mottola‘s Superbad, the high school comedy that launched the careers of up-and-coming actors like Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, and Emma Stone.

To celebrate the occasion, Seth Rogen – who co-wrote the movie with Evan Goldberg and co-starred as Officer Michaels – took to Twitter to share some Superbad trivia with fans, revealing the inspirations for many of the movie’s funniest scenes and drawing a strange connection between the film and the MTV reality show Jersey Shore.

If there’s one opinion we really want to hear about The Disaster Artist, it’s from the director of The Room. Considering Tommy Wiseau lived it, he probably has more than a few thoughts on how actor-director James Franco has depicted him and his beloved bad movie. After seeing the adaptation of actor Greg Sestero‘s book at the SXSW Film Festival, he only took issue with .1% of the movie.

Below, find out Wiseau’s thoughts on The Disaster Artist.

The Lion King Footage

Jon Favreau is directing a live-action remake of Disney’s animated classic The Lion King, and though we’ve heard about some of the cast members, the D23 Expo brought the official announcement of the entire cast.

The biggest news actually isn’t official yet, and that’s word that X-Men franchise star Hugh Jackman has landed the role of the villain Scar, the brother of the Pride Rock king Mufasa and uncle to the cub prince Simba, but we’re not really sure if that’s true or not. Find out more about The Lion King remake cast below as well as new details about the project. Read More »

The Lonely Island Music Festival Comedy with Seth Rogen

If you’ve been paying attention to the internet over the past couple days, you’ve likely noticed the trending topic “Fyre Festival” come up more than once. That’s because the music festival on the island of Fyre Cay in the Bahamas (which doesn’t really exist) created by Ja Rule and Billy McFarland featuring performances by Blink 182, Migos and Major Lazar, marketed towards the super rich party people of the Instagram generation, turned into a complete nightmare.

Attendees described it as a Lord of the Flies scenario that looked much like a refugee camp. There was a shortage of food, incomplete lodging areas, looting of booze, even more booze given away for free when attendees were extremely unhappy at the total lack of infrastructure, some parts of the festival were overrun with rats and their droppings, and eventually a serious lack of flights for people to abandon the festival when it was completely canceled after the first day.

Funnily enough, it turns out Seth Rogen is working with The Lonely Island on a music festival comedy where the festivities go horribly wrong. Find out more after the jump. Read More »

The Lion King Remake Cast - Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner as Timon and Pumbaa

Today, Walt Disney Pictures set release dates for a bunch of their movies coming to theaters over the next couple years, and that included their live-action remake of the modern animated classic The Lion King. Director Jon Favreau is tackling the project after remaking The Jungle Book for Disney last year with Donald Glover taking on the role of Simba and James Earl Jones reprising the role of his father Mufasa, with Beyonce being eyed to play Nala. Now two of the most important characters in the movie have been cast as well.

Undoubtedly the most entertaining characters in The Lion King are the meerkat and warthog duo known as Timon and Pumbaa. The characters were voiced by Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella respectively in the 1994 animated musical, but in the live-action remake, they’ll be voiced by Billy on the Street host Billy Eichner and blockbuster comedy star Seth Rogen.

the disaster artist review

The most surprising thing about The Disaster Artist, James Franco‘s adaptation of Greg Sestero’s book of the same name, is that it doesn’t have a mean-spirited bone in its body. Here’s a film about the making of The Room, one of the worst and most baffling movies to ever achieve cult infamy, told with sincerity, sweetness, and pure affection. Franco isn’t here to laugh at The Room – he’s here to laugh with it. The Disaster Artist has no scorn for its subject. Instead, it is fascinated by this impossible-t0-believe tale and the impossible-to-believe movie it produced. No irony. No scorn. Only love.

And that makes a movie whose existence already feels impossible feel all the more unlikely and all the more wonderful.
