‘Riddick’s David Twohy To Direct Relativity Sci-Fier ‘Replay’

6 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Riddick helmer David Twohy has been tapped to direct time-travel pic Replay at Relativity, I’m hearing. This is the previously untitled sci-fi script that the studio snapped up in July from screenwriter Joe Gazzam, who sold action-thriller Shadow Run to Sony and is scripting the Cliffhanger remake for Neal Moritz and StudioCanal. Story tracks Tyler Vaughn, a test subject in a quantum experiment who’s sent four days into the future, only to discover his son has been killed and he’s been fingered for the murder. When the day ends, he’s pulled back one day prior and realizes he must solve the mystery of his son’s death as he jumps backward, one day at a time, to stop it from happening on the day of the initial experiment.

Twohy’s at home playing in the sci-fi sandbox and is coming off of 2013’s Riddick, the »

Jim Carrey Gets Super Weird To Host Best Episode Of 'SNL' This Season

26 October 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

From a creepy demon to a psychotic billionaire, and the little girl from the 'Chandelier' music video, Carrey brought the bizarre to 'SNL.'

Jim Carrey is one of those comedians who always seems to be a walking contradiction. On the one hand, his over-the-top delivery, penchant for bizarre comedy and experience on a live sketch comedy show should mean that he'd be the perfect guest host for Saturday Night Live. But his enthusiasm and manic energy frequently seemed to sabotage his best bits during his previous two times hosting.

However, while starring in the pre-Halloween episode of Saturday Night Live's 40th season, everything seemed to fall into place (minus a few striking missteps), and Carrey managed to set the bar for the rest of the season with one of the funniest episodes in recent memory.

You Have to See Jim Carrey's Matthew McConaughey Impression

26 October 2014 1:32 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Matthew McConaughey impressions: everybody's doing them! Jim Carrey is the latest star to try his hand at McConaughey's drawl, parodying the actor's easy-target Lincoln commercials when he hosted Saturday Night Live over the weekend. Carrey does a pretty great Matt (with random jokes about Uber and boogers), and it's definitely worth a watch. And don't miss Carrey's other big skit of the night, when Jeff Daniels shows up! »

Jeff Daniels Plays Jim Carrey's Dumb and Dumber Character in Their SNL Reunion

26 October 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

With the release of Dumb and Dumber To in just a few weeks, Jim Carrey returned to the Saturday Night Live stage as host this weekend. The actor took on a handful of hilarious sketches, but the one people are talking about the most finds Carrey being himself. In Carrey Family Reunion, the funnyman catches up with old relatives played by members of the SNL cast, all of whom are similar to the actor's popular movie characters. The highlight of the sketch comes when his Dumb and Dumber costar Jeff Daniels enters as Lloyd Christmas. Check out the role reversal in the video above! »

Jim Carrey And Jeff Daniels Reunite On Saturday Night Live – With Daniels Appearing As Lloyd From Dumb & Dumber

26 October 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

One of the shittiest things about working on this side of the Atlantic is that we don’t get to see the weekly wonder that is Saturday Night Live. This week on the legendary comedy show, live from New York, Jim Carrey hosted, and during one of the many hilarious skits on the show, Carrey was front and centre for a family reunion, where he met a bunch of members of his ‘family,’ all dressed as characters from each of his movies. The segment had a belter of closer when Dumb And Dumber co-star Jeff Daniels appeared as Carrey’s character from the popular Farrelly brothers movie, Lloyd Christmas.

We’ve posted the entire skit from the show below.

Carrey and Daniels reunite on screen this winter for Dumb And Dumber To, the trailer for which you can see here.

Alrighty then…

Jim Carrey on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Need to See

26 October 2014 8:32 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

To commemorate the Halloween season, Saturday Night Live brought Jim Carrey — who originally swung by in 1996 and 2011 — back for his third time as host. Iggy Azalea was the musical guest, and she debuted a new joint called "Beg for It." Let's get to the three best sketches, and maybe hand out a Best Costume Award while we're at it.

"Carrey Family Reunion"

Does it matter that we're being forcefully reminded of Dumb and Dumber To's existence if that reminder comes with Jeff Daniels throwing himself all the way into a Lloyd Christmas impersonation? »

Jim Carrey Takes Over SNL's Halloween Episode

26 October 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Given that Jim Carrey's roots lie in sketch comedy and stand-up, we expected big things out of his appearance on Saturday Night Live on Oct. 25. And we weren't disappointed: Anyone who tuned in was treated to a wide range of skits; some tailored to Carrey's past, others that hit a broader audience. Let's dig in. Skipping Carrey's silly monologue (which had him dressed as "Hellvis") and the somewhat dispiriting cold open (in which Jay Pharoah's Obama says the Ebola virus isn't as bad when compared to some of the other things that happened during his terms), the "Carrey »

Jim Carrey Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

26 October 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Despite a recent onslaught of groan-inducing trailers for Dumb and Dumber To, expectations were high for rubber-faced funnyman (and In Living Color vet) Jim Carrey’s return to Studio 8H for a third crack at hosting Saturday Night Live.

Ultimately, despite an uninspired “Ebola Czar” cold open – Kenan Thompson’s mildly amusing Al Sharpton was a minor highlight in an otherwise forced, dull take on the current virus hysteria – the show’s best moments helped make Carrey’s return a fairly memorable one.

Here are my picks for best and worst sketches of the night:

Jeff Daniels, 'SNL' impersonate Jim Carrey's biggest roles to Jim Carrey's face

25 October 2014 11:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What if all of Jim Carrey's best-known, over-the-top characters were merely inspired by members of his family? That's what "Saturday Night Live" surmised, as it sent its members, one after another, to impersonate Jim Carrey's mannerisms and catch-phrases directly to Jim Carrey's face, during a "Carrey Family Reunion." If you never thought you'd watch someone speak out their butt again -- a la "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" -- guess again. The cast even had Carrey's "Dumb and Dumber" co-star Jeff Daniels along for the roast. Carrey was host of the Oct. 25 episode of "SNL," and Iggy Azalea was on as musical guest. Carrey and Daniels' sequel "Dumber and Dumber To" hits theaters on Nov. 14. »

'SNL' Cold Open Mocks Ebola's Spread to NYC

25 October 2014 8:57 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

According to Saturday Night Live's cold open, certain Americans have nothing to worry about amid the Ebola scare.  In the sketch, Obama addressed Ebola's recent spread into NYC, pointing out that some pundits have criticized how his administration has handled the situation.  "This whole Ebola thing's probably one of my greatest accomplishments," Jay Pharoah said as President Obama, pointing out the litany of other tough moments of his tenure.

Recap: 'Saturday Night Live' – Jim Carrey and Iggy Azalea

25 October 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Will it be third time’s the charm for Jim Carrey and “Saturday Night Live”?  We shall see as the show returns from its first hiatus this season. When Carrey last hosted in January 2011, only five current cast members were still around. That offers up a lot of new comedic combinations tonight. Plus, as Carrey looks to plug his upcoming film “Dumb And Dumber To,” don’t be surprised to see Jeff Daniels pop by, hopefully in full Will McAvoy mode. (After all, “The Newsroom” is already plenty funny, and sometimes even intentionally so.) As per usual, I’ll assign grades to each sketch while liveblogging all the action. As per usual, I urge you not to get bent out of shape should these grades not align with your own. If you did, well, that would be super strange and kind of boring. See you at 11:30 pm Est when things kick off properly. »

Sean Bean Joins Matt Damon in Ridley Scott's The Martian

25 October 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sean Bean has been cast alongside Matt Damon in Ridley Scott's upcoming sci-fi feature, The Martian. The film is based on an e-book written by Andy Weir, and Damon plays an astronaut who is stranded in a Martian colony. He just has to survive long enough for Nasa to organize a reuse mission and come after him.

According to THR, Bean will play a Nasa flight director, so there's a good chance that this will be a movie that he won't die in. Bean joins an all-star cast that also includes Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, and Kristen Wiig. Other recent cast additions include Chiwetel Ejiofor and Sebastian Stan.

It's always great to see Bean in the movies, and I'm sure this will be a great part for him. Here's a more detailed description from the book:

(Cbr) The jam-packed cast of Ridley Scott’s space thriller "The Martian" has added three more actors, Entertainment Weekly reports: Sebastian Stan ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier"), Chiwetel Ejiofor ("12 Years a Slave") and Mackenzie Davis ("Halt and Catch Fire").
