Patton Oswalt Catfishes His Son in 'I Love My Dad' First Look Teaser

I Love My Dad Teaser Trailer

"Do you want to video chat?" "I'm kind of camera shy…" "What if you were some old guy, or something?" Super awkward. Just in time for Father's Day(!), Magnolia has revealed a fun, short teaser trailer for I Love My Dad, a crazy new comedy from filmmaker / actor James Morosini. This premiered at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival earlier this year, where it won both the Grand Jury Award and Audience Award. Looks exactly like the perfect SXSW comedy to get viewers to fall out of their chair laughing! Based on an actual true story. After Franklin blocks his father Chuck on social media, Chuck "catfishes" his son by pretending to be a girl named Becca online. Chuck then agrees to drive Franklin to Maine to meet Becca, knowing that it might be the last straw in their father-son relationship. The film stars Patton Oswalt, James Morosini, Claudia Sulewski, with Lil Rel Howery and Amy Landecker. There's not enough footage in the teaser, but based on all the SXSW buzz this is going to be uproariously funny. I'm nervous and excited to see more.

Hilarious Full Trailer for Billy Eichner's 'Bros' Gay Romantic Comedy

Bros Movie Trailer

"Let me tell you what's progressive now - being alone!" Ha ha. Universal has released the second official trailer for Bros, a hilarious and refreshing new romantic comedy from filmmaker Nick Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, The Five-Year Engagement, Neighbors) & comedian Billy Eichner, who also wrote the script. This fall, Universal proudly presents the very first romantic comedy from a major studio about two gay men maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling towards love. Maybe. They're both busy… Starring Billy Eichner, the first openly gay man to co-write and star in his own major studio movie, which is described as "a smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy about finding sex, love and romance amidst the madness." The big cast includes Luke Macfarlane, Jim Rash, Bowen Yang, Ts Madison, Guillermo Díaz, Miss Lawrence, Harvey Fierstein, & Symone. It looks amazing! This has a bunch of good laugh out loud jokes, makes fun of everyone, and has a sweet side to it with Eichner and his boy. Going to be good.

Watch: Absurd Swedish Comedy Short 'The Man Who Wouldn't Cry'

The Man Who Wouldn't Cry Short Film

"If you care about your own future, shed some f*&#! tears before half past four!" Crying is a strange thing. Sometimes it hits right at the wrong time, sometimes it hits at just the right time. Sometimes we can't cry, sometimes we can't stop crying. What kind of crier are you? The Man Who Wouldn't Cry is an amusing, kooky Swedish comedy short film made by filmmakers Emil T. Jonsson and Björn Boström. After playing at festivals last year, it's available to watch online for free below. A man tarnishes his ad company's reputation when he refuses to mourn the death of a beloved actress and now his professional & social life is in jeopardy. Starring Sissela Kyle, Jonas Ö. Nilsson, and Christoffer Nordenrot. This short has some clever social commentary baked in, about how much pressure society puts on us. Can't we cry on our own?! I guess not…

Rowan Atkinson Returns for a Battle in Comedy 'Man vs Bee' Trailer

Man vs Bee Trailer

"You see… there was this bee." Netflix has revealed an official trailer for a fun comedy series titled Man vs Bee, the return of kooky British comedian Rowan Atkinson making us laugh even more. "A comedy series that will get the whole family buzzing." Atkinson last made the Johnny English Strikes Again movie in 2018, and has been doing a few other Mr Bean comedies recently, including the "Handy Bean" series. In this one, he doesn't play Mr. Bean specifically, but it still looks fun as he gets into more trouble. A man finds himself at war with a bee while housesitting a luxurious mansion. Who will win, and what irreparable damage will be done in the process? In addition to Atkinson, the cast includes Jing Lusi, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Greg McHugh, India Fowler, Claudie Blakley, & Tom Basden. This actually looks much better than Johnny English or Mr Bean, and everyone can relate to this "bee in the house" madness – that's for sure. Have fun.

Billy Eichner Writes & Stars in Gay Romantic Comedy 'Bros' Trailer

Bros Trailer

"Maybe you're both bottoms and that's the problem." Universal Pictures has revealed the first official trailer for Bros, a new romantic comedy from filmmaker Nick Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, The Five-Year Engagement, Neighbors). This fall, Universal proudly presents the very first romantic comedy from a major studio about two gay men maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling towards love. Maybe. They're both very busy. Starring Billy Eichner, the first openly gay man to co-write and star in his own major studio film, described as "a smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy about finding sex, love and romance amidst the madness." The big cast includes Luke Macfarlane, Jim Rash, Bowen Yang, Ts Madison, Guillermo Díaz, Miss Lawrence, Harvey Fierstein, and Symone. This is a hilarious meta trailer that rips apart Hollywood for even trying to have Eichner make a gay romcom, but then gets into some of the craziness with some real footage. Looks cute! And raunchy af. No holes barred here! This is going to be wild.

Melissa McCarthy & Ben Falcone in 'God's Favorite Idiot' Series Trailer

God's Favorite Idiot Trailer

"I can feel you flowing through!!" Netflix has revealed the first official trailer for a new comedy series titled God's Favorite Idiot, the latest creation from the husband-wife comedy duo Melissa McCarthy & Ben Falcone. Usually Falcone directs McCarthy in Hollywood comedies (Tammy, The Boss, Life of the Party, Superintelligence) but this time he stars as the main character in this workplace comedy about what would happen if he suddenly started glowing after being struck by lightning. In God's Favorite Idiot, Mid level Tech support employee Clark Thompson finds love with co-worker Amily Luck at exactly the same time he becomes the unwitting messenger of God. There's also roller skating, a lake of fire and an apocalypse, too. This looks like they went all out with the religious imagery. Falcone stars with McCarthy, and an ensemble cast including Leslie Bibb as Satan, Kevin Dunn, Usman Ally, Steve Mallory, Chris Sandiford, Ana Scotney, and Yanic Truesdale. This seems extra quirky and kooky and kinda funny. What do you think?

Full Trailer for Conspiracy Comedy 'The Pentaverate' from Mike Myers

The Pentaverate Trailer

"According to the world, you're already dead." Myers is back, baby! Netflix has revealed the full-length official trailer for an insanely wacky new comedy series called The Pentaverate (it's pronounced "pen-tav-urr-uht") the latest original creation by Mike Myers. The Pentaverate must never be exposed. An unlikely Canadian journalist finds himself embroiled in a mission to uncover the truth about the world's oldest and most influential secret society. It seems like he's mocking Q and right wing conspiracy nuts, then going even further and making fun of anyone into conspiracies and these organizations like the Illuminati or Masons. Myers will play 8 characters in total, including a Canadian journalist, a conspiracy theorist, a right wing radio host, "Lord Lordington" of The Pentaverate, an Ex-Russian oligarch, and a tech genius, among others. The series main cast also includes Ken Jeong, Keegan-Michael Key, Debi Mazar, Richard McCabe, Jennifer Saunders, & Lydia West. This looks hilarious and entirely original, but it also looks like it's so WTF weird and wacky it might just be too much. Maybe…? Maybe not? Check it out and decide for yourself.

Watch: Hilarious 'The Batman' Remix Featuring Classic Adam West

The Batman Remix Adam West

"How come Batman doesn't dance anymore?" Ahahah this is great! Corridor has whipped up this ingenious creation remixing footage from The Batman movie with characters from the original 60s Batman TV show starring Adam West. It's even better than you think! It's so good my only complaint is that there is not enough footage. More more more…! This Batman video is created and uploaded by Corridor Crew (aka Corridor Digital), a professional YouTube channel of video creators and artists. We also featured their "VFX artists make the Up balloon house for real" video last year. This is one of their best so far! This also features Burt Ward as Robin and Burgess Meredith as The Penguin in addition to West's vintage Batman gaffing it up. I think my favorite parts in this are the jumping in the dark scene and the Bat-copter getaway. Enjoy.

Watch This Short: 'The Nipple Whisperer' Comes Out of Retirement

The Nipple Whisperer Short Film

"David sent me… I'm the guy." He was gone for good, his magical powers hidden away, but now… he's back again! Meet The Nipple Whisperer in this fantastic new short film made by Belgian filmmaker Jan van Dyck. This played at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival and is now online to watch in full. Don't read anymore - just fire this up below and enjoy. Maurice Sanders has a gift. He's a nipple whisperer. Once he was known as 'Magic Sandy'. But that was years ago, before Doris, a famous model and Sander's muse, fell ill. Now, after more than a decade, Doris wants to meet Maurice again. Denis Lavant stars as Maurice, along with Wim Willaert and Elke Shari Van Den Broeck as Angela. There's also an appearance by Wendy Dresner, who is not an actor. She is an ambassador for Cancer Research UK and is vital to the film. "Despite her lack of previous screen time, Dresner's presence on screen is so captivating." A one-of-a-kind short - that's for sure.

Rebel Wilson Heads Back to School in Comedy 'Senior Year' Trailer

Senior Year Trailer

"You turned high school into a Hogwarts without the magic." Netflix has unveiled an official trailer for a comedy called Senior Year, arriving for streaming in May. This kind of seems like a modern reinvention of Adam Sandler's classic Billy Madison, but with a few different twists for the Netflix generation - including very cringey jokes about the times we're in. A 37-year-old woman wakes up from a 20 year coma and returns to the high school where she was once a popular cheerleader - hoping regain her status and claim the prom queen crown that eluded her back then. Rebel Wilson stars, with a cast including Sam Richardson, Zoë Chao, Mary Holland, Justin Hartley, Chris Parnell, Angourie Rice, Michael Cimino, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Brandon Scott Jones, & Alicia Silverstone, with Avantika. This looks like one of those painfully bad comedies they stopped making because they were, uh, awful, yet someone made another. Eesh.

Watch: Oscar Winner Troy Kotsur Reinterprets Iconic Movie Scenes

Troy Kotsur Oscar Winner

"You want answers?" "I want the truth!" Troy! Kotsur! I loveeee him. Perhaps my favorite Oscar winner from this year is Troy Kotsur, the Deaf actor from the wonderful (Best Picture winner) CODA. In addition to winning Best Supporting Actor at the 2022 Academy Awards, he also won a BAFTA Award & Screen Actors Guild Award this year for his role as the lovable scoundrel, fisherman father. As part of his promotional tour, Kotsur stopped by the Variety offices for an interview. While there they got him to record a fun video "re-interpreting" iconic movie scenes. He takes on Vito Corleone from The Godfather, Benjamin from The Graduate, Brody from Jaws (this is the best one), and Darth Vader from Star Wars. It's fun to watch, though seems a bit awkward because he's just thrown into these scenes and had no time to prepare. Variety also published a very short interview with Kotsur after his big win - both of these videos can be seen below.

Watch: SNL's Rap Music Video About Watching 'Short-Ass Movies'

Short-Ass Movies SNL

"I always keep it at 100, keep that running time under 100." Does anyone even like long movies anymore?! Saturday Night Live decided to make fun of the "why are so many movies so long these days?" complaints and turn it into a rap music video. This originally aired during the SNL show on April 2nd, 2022 following the Oscars the weekend before. The song features Pete Davidson rapping about how long movies are and how he prefers "short-ass movies" and only short-ass movies. Anything under 100 minutes, but nothing over 2 hours. He's also joined by rappers Gunna and Chris Redd, plus Simon Rex (from Red Rocket) as "Dirt Nasty". I love the snide remark about how Davidson's own movie The King of Staten Island is 2 hours, 16 minutes long (Apatow infamously makes comedies that are at least 2 hours or more). Fire this up below.
