ENJOY THE SHOW
There's nothing like Kung Fury! Get a load of this. There is a crazy throwback 1980's action comedy short film going around the web called Kung Fury, written & directed by David Sandberg, that you just have to see to believe. It's intense and well-made and features nazis, dinosaurs, vikings and cheesy one-liners packed into one 30 minute short. It's actually the kind of breakout cult sensation that we love coming across nowadays, because it's made with such love for all the cheesy 80's movies, but also fits perfectly in today's cinematic marketplace. Don't second guess, don't think about it, just dive in & enjoy the glory of Kung Fury.
You are what they eat. Lionsgate Premiere has debuted a trailer for the Sundance midnight film Cooties, about an elementary school full kids that gets transformed into zombies. Only the teachers can't get sick (the way they explain this in the trailer is super cheesy and yet oddly still amusing). Elijah Wood, Alison Pill, Rainn Wilson, Sunny May Allison, Armani Jackson, Leigh Whannell and Morgan Lily star in this horror comedy "with unexpected laughs and unapologetic thrills." The trailer doesn't seem to give away all of it, so have fun and let us know if you're interested in catching cooties. Check out the poster below as well.
"Make sure that's the one!" This Thursday (May 21st) it will be "Red Nose Day", a major charity event held to "have fun, raise money and change the lives of children living in poverty in the U.S. and in some of the poorest communities around the world." It centers around wearing a red nose to spread laughter, but NBC is also hosting their own big TV special on Thursday night to raise money. It will feature all kinds of celebrity appearance, funny sketches and more. One of them debuted online early (via SlashFilm) and features the amazingly talented Anna Kendrick playing Indiana Jones in one of the scenes from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, the one where he drinks water from the Holy Grail. It's an amusing riff on that scene.
"I've never even heard of the original Vacation…" Back to Walley World they go! Warner Bros has finally debuted the first official trailer, thankfully a red band to show you how vulgar this R-rated sequel is, for the raunchy comedy Vacation. From writers-turned-directors John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein, this continuation of National Lampoon's Vacation series picks up with Ed Helms as Rusty Griswold when he's older, now with his own family, taking a return
trip vacation to Walley World just like he did when he was a kid. Oh boy. I wish there was more footage in this, but it still looks like fun and I love the connection to the original throughout. Christina Applegate, Chris Hemsworth, Leslie Mann, Regina Hall also star.
He's back! Former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is back into acting, appearing in the zombie flick Maggie in theaters this summer, as well as Terminator Gensisys. He's out promoting and recently stopped by "The Late Late Show With James Corden", where he acted out pretty much every film he's been in. As one of those kids who grew up watching Schwarzenegger movies all day, whether it be True Lies or Terminator or Predator or Kindergarten Cop or whatever, it's quite amusing to see him relive his past and have fun while at it. It's just a fun six minute comedy sketch where Corden and Schwarzenegger act out his entire filmography, and it should make you smile and laugh to watch. Plus he talks about which one is his favorite.
There's no doubt that Hawkeye has been the butt of many jokes regarding his position on The Avengers, mostly because he seems to just be a skilled agent with a bow and arrow standing beside Earth's mightiest heroes with super strength, magical weapons, near-invincibility and more. As I understand it, Hawkeye has a great line addressing this in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but you'll have to see for yourself later this week. In the meantime, Jeremy Renner appeared on "The Tonight Show" last night as Clint Barton to sing about the superpowers people may not know he has, all to the tune of an Ed Sheeran song. Watch below!
Earlier this year, during the heart of awards season, "Sesame Street" had some fun by parodying Birdman with the help of Big Bird. Now that it's blockbuster season, the children's television workshop is back with another Crumby Pictures production that has a new spin on The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Instead of an assembly of Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the usual heroes, this team is powered by vegetables to make The Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon. The citizens of the city are having their vegetables ruined by sweets, and only The Aveggies, composed of Onion Man and Captain Americauliflower can stop the chaos.
If you're one of those action fans who has been waiting for a sequel to Face/Off or another installment in the Rush Hour franchise, what if we told you that it was possible to kill those two birds with one stone? Sean Combs (aka Diddy, P. Diddy, Puff Daddy, Honey Combs) and Byung-Hun Lee (RED 2, Terminator: Genisys) have teamed up for the ultimate blockbuster sequel: Rush Hour 4: Face/Off 2. If you've been in Los Angeles, you might have seen a billboard for this project around town, and now it's finally arrived. This is such a weird idea, and I honestly can't believe it even exists. Hollywood is desperate.
Fresh new late night host James Corden has only been at the reigns of "The Late Late Show" for a few weeks, but his schtick has already become clear. After reenacting the entire filmography of Tom Hanks in under eight minutes and also doing some Pretty in Pink lip syncing with Jon Cryer reprising his iconic role as Duckie, this time Corden had Michael Douglas on as a guest, which prompted the late night host to dress up in drag and perform the iconic interrogation scene from Basic Instinct. For all those squinting for nudity when Sharon Stone uncrossed her legs in the film, you'll want the exact opposite this time.
There's no doubt that yesterday's second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens really moved fans of the sci-fi saga, especially with that final shot featuring two of our favorite heroes. Social media was full of people overwhelmed with feelings and joy, and apparently so was Matthew McConaughey. A reaction video has surfaced showing McConaughey watching the teaser trailer for the first time, and it's pretty clear that he's a huge Star Wars fan. There's plenty of people who got emotional, but McConaughey's reaction is on another level. He even went so far as to watch the trailer from space. He's just that dedicated.
While lip syncing is all the rage, with much thanks to Jimmy Fallon's antics on "The Tonight Show," not to mention the new Spike TV series "Lip Sync Battle" which just churns out viral clips of celebrities each week, this isn't anything new. In fact, one of the more iconic lip syncing scenes in entertainment history comes from all the way back in 1986 from the John Hughes teenage romance classic Pretty in Pink. In that film. Jon Cryer plays the hopeless romantic best friend of Andie (Molly Ringwald), and in one entertaining scene, he enters the record store she works in and lip sync's Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness." And now Cryer has returned to reenact that scene nearly 30 years later on "The Late Late Show." Watch below!
It only took 24 hours for Broken Lizard to round up the $2 million they needed from an Indiegogo campaign in order to make Super Troopers 2 a reality. In fact, the campaign is still going now and has rounded up over $3.3 million, and you can still contribute if you haven't already. And to keep the hype around their indie comedy sequel going, Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske all got together to get some police training again to prepare for the film. After all, it's been 14 years since the gang suited up to deliver justice and speeding tickets, so they surely need it.
For many children of the 90s, The Dark Knight will always be Michael Keaton, because the actor was the first to portray a serious version of the DC Comics superhero on the big screen, and marked the first time a character from comics was taken seriously on the big screen. The film is certainly more campy than today's superhero films, but for my money, it still works. But a few years before Keaton was Batman, he worked with Tim Burton in the wild horror comedy Beetlejuice. These were two of my favorite films as a kid, and the writing staff at "Saturday Night Live" seems to have similar tastes, because some of the cast members begged Keaton to play Batman and Beetlejuice with them during the monologue last night. Watch below!
Right off the bat, we're just going to let you know that this is an April Fools Day prank. There isn't really a Back to the Future reboot, sequel or crossover in the works, but this was such a fun little video that we wanted to highlight it today while the rest of the internet is trying to fool everyone. IGN put together a cool crossover teaser trailer that brings Vin Diesel into the world of Back to the Future for a mash-up movie that is called, what else, Fast to the Future. Some clever editing and surprisingly decent visual effects take footage from the Fast & Furious franchise and brings the DeLorean time machine into play. Watch!
