Saturday Night Live returned this weekend with the first of a back-to-back three-episode run leading up to week of Thanksgiving. To kick things off, we had Larry David returning to host for his second time at Studio 8H, but unfortunately it was nowhere near as noteworthy as his debut back in early 2016.
Larry David’s return to SNL was extremely average. Even the best sketches of the night weren’t particularly fantastic, but merely the best of the night. Many sketches felt like they were trying far too hard, including and especially the return of Larry David as Bernie Sanders, which was shoehorned in for no good reason.
Let’s run through all of the sketches from the Larry David hosted Saturday Night Live below.

Over in New York City, production has begun on Isn’t It Romantic, a new romantic comedy starring Rebel Wilson, Adam DeVine, Liam Hemsworth and Pryianka Chopra. The film is directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson (pictured above on set with Rebel Wilson), who brought us the horror comedy The Final Girls, and he’s bringing some of the same meta cinematic style to the table.
Isn’t It Romantic follows Rebel Wilson as Natalie, a New York City architect who works hard to get noticed at her job, but is more likely to be asked to deliver coffee and bagels than to design the city’s next skyscraper. Her love life isn’t faring any better as a lifelong relationship cynic, but when an encounter with a mugger knocks her out cold, she wakes up to discover that she’s stuck in the kind of romantic comedy that she hates, and she’s the leading lady.
We asked Todd Strauss-Schulson to tell us why he was drawn to Isn’t It Romantic and why audiences should be excited to see the movie which sounds like a romantic comedy version of The Final Girls. Find out what he had to say below. Read More »
In today’s edition of “casting news pieces that aren’t quite big enough to get their own story but are certainly more interesting when lumped together”:
- Chris Evans leads a rescue mission in a film based on a remarkable true story;
- Adam Devine, Liam Hemsworth, and Rebel Wilson star in a rom-com together;
- The third Maze Runner is in production and the cure is more Walton Goggins.

Before we see Woody Harrelson take Caesar and the rest of his super-intelligent simian army in War for the Planet of the Apes this summer, he’s taking on an equally daunting endeavor: shooting the world’s first live movie.
Lost in London is an ambitious project that will have Woody Harrelson directing and starring in a movie that will be live-streamed into theaters as it’s shot on-location in London this week on January 19th. If you think that sounds like a crazy idea, don’t worry, because all of Woody Harrelson’s famous friends don’t believe he can pull it off.
Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey, Liam Hemsworth, Ted Danson, Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and more all roast Woody Harrelson, mocking his cinematic experiment. Watch all of these people and more roast Woody Harrelson’s live movie. Read More »
When Independence Day hit theaters in 1996, it brought the spectacle of global destruction, exciting action, some decent laughs, and an ensemble of memorable characters with nary a huge movie star in sight. Twenty years later, Independence Day: Resurgence attempts to deliver all that again. But despite a plot point out of left field that shifts the sequel away from a simple retread of the original and toward an absolute bonkers, universe-expanding set-up for a sequel, this follow-up falls flat and lacks any of the heart, charm, efficiency and exhilaration that makes the first one entertaining to this day.

With just over a month until the aliens come back to finish the job in Independence Day: Resurgence, a new extended trailer gives us our longest look at the blockbuster sequel yet. A bunch of new footage combined with what we’ve seen in the previous trailers gives us our best glimpse yet at the story, characters and pure destruction awaiting us this summer. However, I will say if you’re already on board with seeing this movie, don’t watch this trailer, because it shows a little too much.

Today is Earth Day, and what better way to celebrate our beautiful planet than by gleefully looking forward to its complete and utter destruction? 20th Century Fox has just unveiled the latest Independence Day: Resurgence trailer, which sees the aliens returning 20 years later, stronger and more brutal than ever before. Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, and Brent Spiner return from the original, while Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe, and Jessie Usher lead a new generation of Earth Space Defense pilots.
Oh, and to celebrate Earth Day in less ironic fashion, 20th Century Fox has also dropped a new Earth Day PSA featuring Earth Space Defense director David Levinson (Goldblum) explaining different ways we at home can help save the planet. Plus, to get that patriotic spirit going, they’re offering a download of the original Independence Day for just $0.99. Get the details, and watch both the new Independence Day: Resurgence trailer and the Independence Day Earth Day PSA after the jump. Read More »

Along with Maika Monroe as the daughter of President Whitmore (Bill Pullman) and Jessie Usher as the son of Steven Hiller (Will Smith) and Jasmine (Vivica A. Fox) in Independence Day: Resurgence, one of the other new, young cast members on the scene is Liam Hemsworth. Like Monroe and Usher revealed in our interview with them, Hemsworth saw the movie when he was very young, around six years old, on VHS. And even though his character Jake Morrison was rather young during the alien invasion of the first film, it’s not exactly something he’ll forget.

One of the most iconic Super Bowl spots of all time was the tease for the original Independence Day, 20 years ago this year.

Take a look at the Independence Day Resurgence Super Bowl spot below! Read More »
