We’ve almost reached single digits in our collective countdown to The Dark Knight Rises. It opens July 20 and with the press tour in full swing, more and more little tidbits and reveals are hitting the Internet. The latest is a brand new TV spot that shows, in the two hour and 45 minute film, there is some real humor. One joke is courtesy of John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and others are from a doctor played by famous comedic actor Thomas Lennon (Reno 911, I Love You, Man) who we didn’t know was in the film. These are both brand new scenes making this, in an odd way, the most spoiler filled clip yet.
Also, Christopher Nolan was recently asked about the change in Bane’s voice from the first IMAX screening of the film’s opening to now and you’ll be surprised at what he said.
Then, as if that wasn’t enough, there’s even a new trailer. Check it all out below. Read More »

Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb may seem like an unlikely couple, but they’ll be united in the fight against a demonic child in Hell Baby. Scripted and directed by Night at the Museum writers Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, the comedy centers around a pregnant woman and her husband (Bibb and Corddry) who move into a dilapidated haunted house in New Orleans. In an effort to keep from having a demonic baby, they call upon the Vatican’s crack exorcism team, played by Lennon and Garant. Bet that’ll go well. Production will begin in New Orleans next month.

After the jump, Clark Duke becomes Adam Scott’s kid brother, and Paul Rudd and Paul Giamatti pull Amy Landecker into their Christmas tree scheme.

In 2000, the Nicolas Cage-owned copy of Action Comics No. 1, featuring the first appearance of Superman, was stolen from the actor. The mint-condition issue, worth upwards of $1.5m, was missing until 2011, when the comic was found in an abandoned storage locker in the San Fernando Valley.
Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!, Night at the Museum) have scripted a film called Action No. 1 that covers the theft, or at least a fictionalized version of it. And now Lionsgate has picked up the script and will hopefully turn it into a film. Read More »

It’s not surprising that most of the marketing materials so far for What to Expect When You’re Expecting have focused primarily on the women. It’s inspired by a world-famous pregnancy manual, after all, and (Arnold Schwarzenegger in Junior notwithstanding) men don’t often get pregnant. But with a comedically gifted male cast that includes Chris Rock, Thomas Lennon, Ben Falcone, Rob Huebel, and Dennis Quaid, it’s about time we got to see what the dads have been up to. Watch the dude-centric new trailer after the jump.

The two existing Harold & Kumar movies have gone a long way towards keeping raunchy, healthy R-rated humor alive over the past few years. The third one, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas, seems to be operating on the principle that you can get away with just about anything, so long as it is all wrapped up in a big holiday bow.
The first trailer made the third film look mildly manic and possibly funny. This new red-band trailer (which is very NSFW) makes it look straight-up wrong. Which is as it should be. Read More »
It’s been three years in real time since we last caught up with stoner buds Harold & Kumar (in 2008′s Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay) but it’s been six years of time within the movies since the two friends played by Kal Penn and John Cho last spent time together. Their third film, and their first in 3D (and first outright holiday movie) sees the pair reunited and, judging by the looks on their faces, back in trouble.
The first full official image of the pair and persistent scene-stealer Neil Patrick Harris is after the break. Read More »
[Obligatory Pink Floyd song reference.] OK, now that we have that out of the way, let’s get down to business. MGM is back in the production game, and the studio’s first new project is The Machine, produced by and starring Vin Diesel. (Who is probably still floating several inches above the ground as part of his post-Fast Five high.) But here’s the other part: Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant wrote the script, and are also producers. Now this might be interesting. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Thanks be to the almighty press release to inform us of new casting info. Warner Bros. issued a release for the third Harold & Kumar film, which is shooting right now. (Little late on the draw for a ‘begins production’ release, but why quibble over details?)
The first useful tidbit: nowhere do we see the title A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas. Instead, the film is referred to as merely the third Harold & Kumar comedy. Right now I wouldn’t be surprised if A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas ends up being the final title, but it’s odd to see it omitted in the press release.
Read the full release after the break, which comes complete with info about casting new folks such as Thomas Lennon and Danny Trejo. Read More »
