Plus, a short film called reStart finds a woman trapped in a time loop, and see what happens when Tyler Perry as Madea becomes the new White House communications director

Tyler Perry Colin Powell

Adam McKay is best known for directing comedies like Anchorman and Step Brothers, but he’s also proven to be one of the most politically-conscious mainstream filmmakers working today. His next project is a biopic about former Vice President Dick Cheney that stars Christian Bale in the lead role, but McKay has just hired a surprising choice to play one of the key cabinet members of the Bush administration: Tyler Perry (Boo 2! A Madea Halloween) will play former Secretary of State Colin Powell. Yes, seriously.

Boo! A Madea Halloween Trailer

October is the prime month for horror movies, and this year we’ll be getting terror on a number of different levels thanks to Tyler Perry. The writer, director, producer and actor is getting back in drag for Boo! A Madea Halloween, a horror comedy that puts the sassy old woman in the middle of some horror movie shenanigans.

This time Madea is commissioned by a family friend (also played by Tyler Perry) to keep an eye on the house and his daughter while he goes out of town to make sure she doesn’t go to a huge Halloween party happening nearby. But in addition to keeping an eye on this young girl, Madea also has to contend with creepy clowns, zombies and apparently even Jigsaw from the Saw franchise. Get a taste of the shenanigans in the Boo! A Madea Halloween trailer below. Read More »

Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween Poster

This past spring, the bonkers teaser trailer debuted for Tyler Perry‘s return as the goofy old woman Madea. This time, we get another holiday themed outing in the form of Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween. The teaser trailer had Madea armed to the teeth and preparing to defend her house against some impending All Hallow’s Eve threats.

Believe it or not, the film that owes its inception to a joke from Chris Rock’s fantastic Top Five is still coming to theaters this Halloween, and now a teaser poster parodies one of the most iconic horror flicks that is played over and over again throughout the month of October. If you hold John Carpenter’s Halloween as something sacred, you may want to sit down before you see the Madea Halloween poster after the jump. Read More »

Madea Halloween Trailer

And if you haven’t seen that movie, that means you missed the joke which names Boo! A Madea Halloween as a fake sequel Tyler Perry made for his old woman alter ego.

But you’ll have a second chance to miss it all over again, because it’s now a real movie. That’s right, a joke from Top Five has been turned into a real movie, and you can watch the outrageous Madea Halloween trailer below. Read More »
