Comedy sequels are already a rare breed of movie, but sports comedy sequels are seen even less. But that didn’t stop actor Jay Baruchel from getting his passion project off the ground: a sequel to the hockey comedy Goon that he wrote back in 2011. Take Me Home Tonight director Michael Dowse was at the helm of the first film, co-written by Seth Rogen’s writing partner Evan Goldberg, but now Jay Baruchel himself has gotten behind the camera for the sequel.
Goon: Last of the Enforcers finds Seann William Scott returning as hockey enforcer Doug Glatt, sidelined after taking one big hit during a fight with the league’s new hot shot Anders Cain (Wyatt Russell of 22 Jump Street). Left behind by the sport he loves and suffocated by home life with a baby on the way, Doug “The Thug” Glatt is forced to take lessons from his former rival (Liev Schreiber) in order to learn how to fight in the ice rink again.

Seann William Scott was once quite the popular comedic actor, but in recent years, he hasn’t been as in demand as he once was. Thankfully for him, fans of the 2011 hockey comedy Goon have been wanting to see him return to the ice for years, and how the American Pie franchise star finally has his skates on and fists up for the sequel.
Goon: Last of the Enforcers brings back Seann William Scott as Doug “The Thug” Glatt. But in the new trailer for the movie, it appears the years of beatings have finally caught up with Doug as the doctor tells him that he can’t play hockey anymore. Meanwhile, a lockout brings some new players to Doug’s old team, the Halifax Highlanders, including his rival Anders Cain (22 Jump Street star Wyatt Russell) as the new captain. Doug has no choice but to pick up his stick and throw some punches back on the ice.

“Talk has already begun about a possible fourth Rush Hour movie, further proving that their must not be a God, or at least one who cares about good movies.” This is what I wrote on the site exactly seven years ago as New Line Cinema Co-Chairman and Co-Ceo told trade reports that he’d “love” to do another “Rush Hour”. Well its been seven years and it hasn’t happened yet, which is good news. But it looks like the studio wants to make Rush Hour 4. Jackie Chan says the studio wants to make another sequel but they don’t even have a script, and until they do — he’s not interested.

When Jackie Chan has an idea for a movie, that movie gets made. That’s certainly the case with Skiptrace, which is based on idea from the martial arts icon. Chan will star as Hong Kong detective whose daughter (X-Men: Days of Future Past‘s Fan Bingbing) gets abducted and the only person who can help is a wiseass American gambler, who’ll be played by Seann William Scott.
That’s all well and good, but the coolest news here is the director. Sam Fell, who directed Paranorman and The Tale of Despereaux, will make his live-action debut on the film. Read More »

The red-band trailer for Peter Farrelly‘s Movie 43 leaned hard on the shock factor of seeing big Hollywood stars revel in foul language and filthy jokes, but the poor green-band trailer is stuck trying to sell the exact same product by only hinting at what the NSFW version could actually show. Is Anna Faris asking Chris Pratt to take a dump on her still comedy gold when the word “poop” has to be substituted with a fart noise? Is Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts bullying their own kid still shocking when they have to keep their behavior G-rated?
Eh, truthfully, I think the answer is that none of this looked all that outrageous to begin with. But at least it’s not any less funny than it was before. Hit the jump to see Hugh Jackman, Gerard Butler, Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Stephen Merchant, Emma Stone, Kristen Bell, Elizabeth Banks, Josh Duhamel, Terrence Howard, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chloë Grace Moretz, Seann William Scott, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Bell, Richard Gere, and so, so, so many more celebs in the new SFW trailer.

One of the early surprises of 2012 was the hockey comedy Goon. Directed by Michael Dowse and written by Evan Goldberg and Jay Baruchel, the film starred Seann William Scott as a small-time hockey enforcer whose talent for violence leads him to the big time. Not only does the film feature a classic sports story, it has heart, violence and lots of character. Debuting On Demand and then hitting theaters, the film turned a small little profit and gained a passionate fan base, one curious to see where the story would go next.
Baruchel, who also starred in the film, took to Twitter to update fans on Goon 2. He’s currently co-writing it with Jesse Chabot, Goldberg will produce and Dowse will return to direct. Read his statements after the jump. Read More »

As someone who was roughly the same age as the American Pie gang when the first film dropped — and who then followed the group through 2001’s American Pie 2 and 2003’s American Wedding — I’m finding it tough to separate American Reunion from the haze of nostalgia surrounding it. But that’s part of the point, of course. Much like an actual reunion, American Reunion exists for no other reason than to check back in with the East Great Falls Class of ’99. While it falls flat as a standalone film, for fans of the series, the pleasure of spending time with familiar faces once more outweighs the movie’s many flaws.
