Everything else we loved from the ’90s is back, and now we can go ahead and add the hit MTV show Daria to the list. Lawndale High’s favorite misanthrope, now played by Aubrey Plaza, returns to the screen in Daria: High School Reunion, and you can watch the trailer below.
… Okay, you can relax, this isn’t a real movie. (Yet.) But if it were, I’d have to admit that the casting of Plaza as Daria Morgendorffer was absolutely spot-on.

CollegeHumor‘s silly videos have entertained many a procrastinator for five- or ten-minute chunks, but now the site’s looking to command people’s attentions for a whole lot longer.

The film features quite an array of TV talents, including director Brad Copeland (Arrested Development) and stars Glenn Howerton (It’s Always Sunny), Steve Little (Eastbound & Down), Ben Schwartz (Parks & Recreation), Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights), Jake Johnson (New Girl) and, um, Josh Groban.

Comedy website CollegeHumor, best known for its viral shorts, is now looking to bring its irreverent sense of humor to theaters with its debut big-screen feature Coffee Town.
