Movie posters have lost some of their artistic value in recent years as studios opt foe cheap Photoshop jobs instead of stunning illustrations. But in case you haven’t heard, artists in Ghana have breathed new life into the world of movie posters by making movies look ieven more intriguing and enticing than the real marketing campaigns. Of course, that’s usually because the Ghanaian artists add elements that are completely insane and have nothing to do with the actual movie.
Well, Conan O’Brien recently went to Ghana as part of his Conan Without Borders series, and while there, he met with Ghanaian movie poster artist Daniel Anum Jasper to talk about his impressive work. It should come as no surprise that Conan commissioned Jasper to create a poster that perfectly captures the spirit of the late night talk show, and it did not disappoint. Plus, to make sure the poster is accurate, they even shot a trailer that tries to make sense of it all with an actual story.

Conan O’Brien has made waves by doing extensive traveling for remote specials for his late night talk show spin-off Conan Without Borders on TBS, which has also revamped its format to be just a half-hour show most of the time. And his next trip will take him to Greenland, where Conan tried to keep the country from falling into the hands of President Donald Trump. But beyond trying to make a ludicrous real estate purchase, he also gives a weather report, meets a lot of locals, check out the massive (melting) icebergs, and much more. Read More »
Last night, Will Ferrell appeared in character as Anchorman character Ron Burgundy on five different late night talk shows to do stand-up comedy and stick around for an interview with the host. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Late Late Show with James Corden and Conan all brought in Ron Burgundy to tell some jokes and have some of the funniest interviews these guys have ever done. All of this seems to be a promotional push for the second season of The Ron Burgundy Podcast on iHeartRadio, but we’re not going to complain just because this is an extended advertisement. This is the funniest late night TV has been in awhile. Read More »
Like the post-apocalyptic train on which its story is set, Snowpiercer has experienced a bit of a bumpy ride on its way to the small screen. Development on a television adaptation of Bong Joon-ho‘s 2014 sci-fi film – which itself was an adaptation of the 1982 French graphic novel Le Transperceneige – first began back in 2015, but soon careened off track by losing both its showrunner and the director of its pilot. But now, years later, things seem a bit steadier, and the first Snowpiercer TV series trailer is here. Watch it below. Read More »

Conan O’Brien is the longest-running late night talk show host in the game right now, and in his more than 25 years experience, he’s only had two instances in which a confirmed guest flaked on him at the last minute. One was Liza Minelli over two decades ago, and the other was Stuber star Kumail Nanjiani, who was slated to appear on TBS’s Conan last night but ended up cancelling just thirty minutes before the show began recording in front of its live studio audience. Find out the reason why, and how Conan kept things moving, by watching the clips below.
