The Lion King remake from Walt Disney Pictures is currently sitting with a rotten score of 56% on Rotten Tomatoes at the time of this writing, but that’s exactly the score Aladdin earned, and that movie has made $965 million worldwide so far, so I think The Lion King will be just fine. Even so, some people might need a nudge towards theaters to see how this movie updates the animated classic from 1994, and a new featurette shines some light on that.
Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, and Billy Eichner have the honor of recording a new version of the beloved song “Hakuna Matata” from the original animated movie. Since this is a remake, the song couldn’t just be a carbon copy of the original, but it also couldn’t stray too far from the version that people love. This new The Lion King featurette showcases all three cast members talking about singing the updated tune, and you even get to see them recording together in the sound booth. Watch! Read More »

And it’s clear that the movie’s Bean Bag Boys (Jacob Tremblay, Brady Noon, and Keith L. Williams) are not ready for everything growing up has to offer, especially when it involves, drugs, parties, and totally misunderstanding sex. Read More »

Plenty of Seinfeld fans are probably hungry for some kind of special celebration in honor the show’s 30th anniversary. We’re not sure if there’s anything in the works on that front, but there will at least be some new programming with Jerry Seinfeld getting back in cars and getting some coffee (and maybe some breakfast, lunch or dinner) with some of the biggest names in comedy.
A new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is coming to Netflix later this month, and the first trailer shows off the impressive roster that Seinfeld is talking to this time, including Eddie Murphy, Seth Rogen, Matthew Broderick, Martin Short, and more.

Long Shot premiered to rave reviews at this year’s South By Southwest Film Festival. It’s a smart, funny, charming movie that features surprising chemistry between stars Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron – but this new trailer would like to remind you that the film also has its fair share of physical comedy.
Rogen’s character, a journalist named Fred Flarsky, takes two huge spills in this trailer that would have sidelined a normal human for the rest of the movie, so it’s a good thing Flarksy is also a superhero named Long Shot who’s invulnerable to pain! (He isn’t.) Read More »
