Foo Fighters ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Elaborately Recreates 'Carrie'

Foo Fighters ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

If you've been on the internet at all the past couple weeks, you've undoubtedly seen the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a charity trend sweeping the nation to raise money to fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Many people seem to think that Charlie Sheen delivered the best video of this challenge by dumping $10,000 in cash on his head, all of which he was donating to the cause. However, Dave Grohl and his band Foo Fighters have taken this fun, charitable trend to incredible new heights by creating an elaborate recreation of the infamous pig's blood scene at the prom in Stephen King's Carrie. It's awesome. Watch!

James Franco's 'The Interview' Character Gets an MTV VMA Special

The Interview

Hot on the heels of a release date push to Christmas Day and news of digital alterations being made to avoid riling up North Korea anymore than they already are, The Interview isn't slowing down their marketing brigade. In fact, it gets a big push in the youth market this weekend as James Franco will appear in character as entertainment tabloid TV host Dave Skylark with a half-hour special onĀ Sunday, August 17th at 9/8c on MTV, interviewing music superstars like Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea and Jason Derulo before the VMAs. Franco's character seems to be a dimwit, but surely he'll be kept in line by his show's producer Aaron Rapoport, played by Seth Rogen, who will also be appearing in the special. Watch a tease below!

No Longer Will Character Actors Be Referred to as 'Hey, It's That Guy'

Rob Corddry

Day in and day out, character actors go without the recognition that superstars, blockbuster leading men and Oscar-winners get every single day. Most of the time audiences can't even be bother to learn their name, constantly pointing and saying "Hey, it's that guy!" or "It's that guy from that one thing." But some of Hollywood's character actors have had enough, and they're looking for some recognition. Entertainment Weekly has put together this powerful PSA featuring character actors like Rob Corddry, Doug Jones, Rob Huebel and more, making sure you know who they are, and they deserve to be called by their name.

Watch: 'Matrix Reloaded' Fight is Improved with 8-Bit Sound Effects

The Matrix Reloaded

We've seen movies like Kill Bill and Blade Runner turned into 8-bit video games, but YouTube user and San Francisco State University student Phillip Raupach has decided to do something different inspired by old school video games. Instead of taking The Matrix Reloaded and turning it into an 8-bit video game, he merely took footage from the film, a fight scene with Neo and thugs in the house of the Merovingian, and replaced all of the music and sounds with those you would find in these early video games. The result is funny and impressive, as his work won him Best Sound Design at SFSU's BECAfest last year. Watch below!

Watch: Chris Pratt Predicted He Was Going to Star in 'Jurassic World'

Chris Pratt

After exploding at the box office this weekend in Guardians of the Galaxy, not to mention leading the voice cast of The LEGO Movie earlier this year, you can bet Chris Pratt is going to be a huge star. He'll only get bigger with a lead role in Jurassic World next summer, but it sounds like Pratt might have already known that. A video from a behind-the-scenes featurette from the second season of "Parks & Recreation" back in 2010 shows Pratt hamming it in his dressing room, shooting himself in a mirror, looking all scuffled and dirty for a scene. And then he gets a text message, and he pretends it's from Steven Spielberg. Watch!

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water Trailer

"Those guys must work out." They have returned. Nickelodeon has unveiled the first official trailer for The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, the sequel to the hit SpongeBob SquarePants movie from 10 years ago.

The cast is all back including Tom Kenny as SpongeBob (and Gary the Snail), Bill Fagerbakke as Patrick, Rodger Bumpass as Squidward, plus yes, Antonio Banderas as Alameda Jack, and Clancy Brown as Mr. Krabs. I will say this actually seems like a lot of good fun, enjoy.

Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man' Defender Brings a Big Sign to 'Comic-Con'

Edgar Wright Comic-Con Sign

It was inevitable that someone would make a big scene at Comic-Con this year about Edgar Wright leaving Ant-Man. This is our guy. Yes, this is just a fun post about a funny moment at Comic-Con and contains no news, but it's a good story and one I think fans who aren't in San Diego will appreciate anyway. Every year at Comic-Con, a small selection of religious zealots bring big yellow signs talking about the bible. This year, another big sign joined them but it was in defense of Edgar: all it stated was "Edgar Wright Was Right". Turns out he's a fan who is "depressed" about the Ant-Man news and wanted to make his feelings known.

Bateman, Day & Sudeikis Reunite in 'Horrible Bosses 2' Teaser Trailer

Horrible Bosses 2

Following the comedy hit of 2011, Horrible Bosses 2 is on the way now with Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day back together, this time working for themselves with a new business. However, we don't get a hint of that in the first teaser trailer. Instead, we get to see the trio visiting Bateman's boss (Kevin Spacey) in prison after being arrested at the end of the first film. And also the return of Day's boss (Jennifer Aniston), who is still keen on getting some action, but this time of a certain bathroom variety. One thing we do learn is there's a kidnapping involved and Motherfucker Jones (Jamie Foxx) is helping again. It's a great tease for the new comedy coming this fall, with a hint of Chris Pine freshness. Watch!

Watch: Tarantino's 'Kill Bill: Vol. 1 & 2' Made into 8-Bit Cinema Video

Kill Bill 8-Bit Cinema

"Do you find me sadistic?" Who can refuse an 8-bit version of Kill Bill? The latest creation from CineFix, masterminds behind many previous 8-bit cinema recreations, have debuted their latest video presenting Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill: Volumes 1 & 2, the complete cut (first released in 2003/2004), as an 8-bit NES-style video game. The game navigates through various fights and encounters across both movies, and shows The Bride kicking ass with her 8-bit sword. From the moment this starts, the thought that comes to mind is always the same - I really wish I could actually be playing this game on my NES. It looks fun. Enjoy!

Will Ferrell Has World Cup Fever Before United States vs. Germany

Will Ferrell

Does everyone remember back in 2005 when Will Ferrell was on a hot streak, but hit a bit of a speed bump with the family comedy Kicking & Screaming? Well, that's actually a movie that I enjoy the hell out of, because it lets Ferrell loose, and also has him calling Mike Ditka by the nickname "Juicebox." Anyway, Ferrell seems to genuinely love soccer, or maybe just sports in general, and with everyone getting World Cup fever, there's no better time for Ferrell to get crazy about the sport. And so he did during a visit to Brazil to hype up some fans rounded up by the U.S. Soccer Federation. He's playing in the game! Watch!

Watch: 'The Gunfighter' Short Film with Narration by Nick Offerman

The Gunfighter Short Film

"The weary gunfighter walked slowly through the saloon..." Something fun to start the day - another short film, this one a "period western meta comedy short film" titled The Gunfighter. It's smart, it's funny, its got foul language, and it actually looks good. The Gunfighter, starring Nick Offerman as the narrator and Shawn Parsons as The Gunfighter, just won the Audience Award for Best Short Film at the LA Film Fest and was also a Best of the Fest Selection at the Palm Springs Short Fest. You'll see why once you watch this. With all the language it may by NSFW, but it is certainly worth watching whenever you get a chance. Enjoy!
