this giant beast that is the global economy trailer

Kal Penn and director Adam McKay want to teach you about the global economy. That doesn’t sound very exciting at first, but just wait – the This Giant Beast That is the Global Economy trailer goes to great lengths to make all of this sexy, funny, and, well, kind of scary. And it’s educational, too. For instance: you’ll learn all about how we’ll turn into cannibals a mere two months after the global economy collapses.

Animated ‘Harold & Kumar’ Series in the Works

In the seven years since its inception, the Harold & Kumar franchise has only managed to crank out three films — the latest of those being this past weekend’s A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas. But if all goes well, we could soon be getting doses of the pothead pair on a much more regular basis.

Lionsgate TV has begun shopping an animated small screen series based on the films, with stars John Cho and Kal Penn attached to voice the main characters and Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (who penned all three of the films and directed the second one) attached to write. More details 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 »

Considering A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas is a 3D, drug-induced Christmas story, it’s obviously going to be crazy. The first trailer bolstered that point as did the first batch of posters. Yahoo has just premiered a new batch of posters and after looking at these, “crazy” doesn’t seem to be a strong enough word to describe what we’re going to see come November 4. Of course, there’s Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) as seen above, but after the jump you’ll see Neil Patrick Harris with a big stick, a stoned Santa Claus, Jesus Christ, a creepy Danny Trejo and much more.

It seems like the holidays creep up a bit earlier each year, doesn’t it? I started seeing Thanksgiving cards on drugstore shelves sometime around the middle of August, so now that we’re past Labor Day I suppose it’s about time we started thinking about Christmas. Four new posters have been released for A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas, showing off such holiday-appropriate imagery as an apparently dead Santa, Kumar’s gift-wrapped crotch, and… some kind of robot servant holding a stack of French toast that’s caught on fire? I don’t even know. Check them out after the jump.

While it’s not beginning to look a lot like Christmas just yet, the trailer for A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas is a great start. The film hits theaters November 4 and once again stars John Cho and Kal Penn as everyone’s favorite hamburger munching potheads. This time around, they’ll get into it with Santa Claus, Jesus and – of course – Neil Patrick Harris, all in 3D. Check out the trailer after the break. Read More »

First Look: ‘A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas’

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 »

Two films got release dates today: A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas and Seth MacFarlane‘s directorial debut Ted both have spots on the calendar. But there’s a price (of sorts) as the Ashley Greene thriller The Apparition has been bumped from a fall date back to 2012. Details on all three after the break. Read More »


On the off chance that an appearance by Patton Oswalt isn’t enough to get you pre-rolling for the third Harold & Kumar movie, now there is some confirmation that Neil Patrick Harris will appear in A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas, making him three for three in the series. We’ve already had reports that he was in the script, and so figured that this was coming down the pipe. But now it is, like, totally official. Or close to it. Read More »

Kal Penn Returning to Harold & Kumar?


When we talked recently about the possibility of another Harold & Kumar movie, one of the big questions was not ‘will the film happen?’ but ‘who will be in it?’ as co-star Kal Penn had left acting over a year ago to take a job as the associate director of the Office of Public Engagement at the White House. Now there’s a report that suggests Penn will be back, and that the possible summer start date for the film is now written in ink. Read More »
