This year will bring to theaters two very different versions of wilderness. Later this month, we’ll see Joseph Kosinski’s sci-fi thriller Oblivion, which takes place sixty years after the armies of Earth found themselves waging a war against alien invaders, who left the planet utterly destroyed. Then in the fall we’ll find out what happened in the aftermath of Sony Pictures’ 2009 animated adventure Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, as Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader) returns in the sequel to the abandoned town of Swallow Falls and finds his machine – the Fldsmdfr – has been creating mutated, living animals made out of food.

Alright, alright, Terry Crews‘ unabashed excitement over the upcoming Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 isn’t entirely inexplicable – the former football star (and apparent renaissance man) is lending his voice to the new production, taking over the role of tough cop Earl Devereaux from Mr. T – but damn if the man is not excited about this new sequel. Fortunately, we are too. In the new film, Flint Lockwood (voice of Bill Hader) and gal pal Sam Sparks (Anna Faris) return after the disaster of Swallow Falls, with Flint now employed at The Live Corp Company, run by his idol Chester V (Will Forte) and his “highly evolved orangutan with a human brain” Barb (Kristen Schaal). But while Flint and Sam have matured since we last saw them, they’re not the only ones, as Flint’s Fldsmdfr machine has also evolved, and it’s busy pumping out a number of different food-imals that threaten the »

There’s nothing like an advertising campaign that steps away from the normal spoilerific trailers. Back in the day we had Alfred Hitchcock walking us through the set of Psycho, and now we have Terry Crews discussing a journey to Swallow Falls in this trailer for Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2. In the movie, Terry Crews takes over vocal duties from Mr. T, as police officer Earl. This trailer however, introduces Mr Crews as a published author and fan of science, as he takes us through some footage concerning the strange animals we’ll encounter in the animated sequel. This includes a first look at the mythical Sassquash.
Crews always makes me laugh, and I think it’s clever of the ad-execs to play on his popularity from the Old Spice commericials. Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 will see the characters from the previous film return to their hometown, »

What.s the best way to get people.s minds off of the fact that Mr. T didn.t come back for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2? By reminding people that he was replaced by the badassery that is football player-turned-actor Terry Crews. The Expendables 2 actor does a great job of playing over-the-top without dipping into straight camp, and this promotional clip utilizes those talents to the fullest. But I never trust a man wearing a neck tie and a smoking jacket at the same time. It isn.t entirely clear why Sony Animation would choose to go this way with any pre-release ads, as barely anything new is shown, and it seems to serve only as a vehicle for and even more terrible food puns. Did I say terrible? Because .fruit cockatiel. makes me laugh. Exactly once, though. Crews comes close to selling me on it though, »
In case you didn't know, Terry Crews is replacing Mr. T as the voice of Officer Earl Devereaux in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.

Now Sony Pictures Animation has released a cool featurette giving a brief recap of the first film, and also having Crews guide us through some of the finer points of the sequel, including the infamous Sasquash. And no, that's not a typo. Here's the featurette for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 from Sony Pictures Animation: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 has the original film's directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller executive producing with a screenplay from Horrible Bosses »

In the featurette, Terry Crews, who has replaced Mr. T as the voice of Earl Devereaux, shows us some more of the strange pun-christened leftovers that inhabit Swallow Falls.

Ah, April Fools’: The one day when you can’t believe everything you read online.
A Google product that leverages “photo-auditory-olfactory sensory convergence,” a Twitter initiative that asks users to pay for vowels, and bacon-flavored mouthwash are just the tip of the jocular iceberg this year. Read on for a list of some of the best gags we’ve come across so far; we’ll be updating it throughout the day.
The search giant/omnipotent Internet god’s next big project? Searchable smells. Somehow, this still doesn’t sound as ridiculous as Google Glass.

On Tuesday night, Mr. T took part in a “Shoot the Puck” promotion during the Calgary Flames-Chicago Blackhawks game in the Windy City. As you’ll see in the video below, he managed to score a goal from center ice. Impressive! But even more so was him comparing organizers asking him to shoot the remaining pucks to Rocky Balboa asking him for a rematch in Rocky III. Enjoy!

Since making his feature film debut in the 1985 flick Runaway Train, Tommy "Tiny" Lister has worked on over 160 projects, quickly becoming one of the most recognizable character actors of modern cinema.
This Friday, March 8th, Lister's latest film, K-11, will be arriving at limited theaters nationwide. Helmed by first-time director Jules Stewart (Crank: High Voltage, XXX), K-11 also stars Goran Visnjic ("ER," The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Kate del Castillo ("Weeds"), D.B. Sweeney (The Cutting Edge, Fire in the Sky), Jason Mewes (Clerks I & II) and Portia Doubleday (the upcoming Carrie) and follows what happens inside a troubled portion of a Los Angeles correctional facility reserved for the homosexual and transgender inmates. In the film Lister plays Detroit, and while it's certainly not the first time we've ever seen the seasoned actor as a convict, it's perhaps his most nuanced performance to date.

"I can't believe my machine created all of this!"
2009's Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs took a beloved children's book about a town where food literally fell from the sky and adapted it into a movie about a small town inventor named Flint (voiced by SNL's Bill Hader) who creates a machine capable of turning water into food. Eventually, control of the machine is comprimised and Flint and his friends must find a way to stop it. That's pretty much where the sequel, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, begins. The newly-released first trailer shows Flint, his father (voiced by James Caan), his girlfriend Sam (voiced by Anna Faris), Sam's cameraman Manny (voiced by Benjamin Bratt), Flint's friend and celebrity mascot Brent (voiced by Andy Samburg), Officer Devereaux (voiced by Terry Crews, replacing Mr. T) and Steve the monkey (voiced by Neil Patrick Harris) returning to »

“Pun-fet” was a bit too far to go, even for me. You’re welcome. You’re also welcome for this Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 trailer that is overflowing with food and animal jokes. Phil Lord and Chris Miller aren’t involved with the sequel, but this footage is fit for their pun dog. Fortunately, the voice cast of the original is back. Bill Hader returns as Flint Lockwood, who has to return to his old stomping grounds after discovering that his food-creating device has been spawning some deliciously bizarre new species. Plus, Anna Faris, Neil Patrick Harris, Andy Samberg and more are sequelizing too. The bad news is that Mr. T isn’t back, but the good news is that Terry Crews has taken his place, so all is well. Nothing to cry about — as Crews reminds us in this trailer: Looks like they proved the pun is mightier than the gourd. And »

Trailer spoiler alert — here are several of the great/good/groan-worthy/grin-making puns featured in the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 trailer: shrimpanzees; mosquitoast; tacodile supreme; "a leek in the boat." It's the kind of wordplay-packed silliness adults can get down with, bolstered by returns from Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Andy Samberg, and Neil Patrick Harris. Old Spice shouter Terry Crews takes over for Mr. T, and Kristen Schaal shows up as a screaming orangutan helping out in the battle against monstrous people-munching food products. We'll just be happy to spend more time with Flint's father, that caterpillar-unibrowed, street sweeper–mustachioed gentle giant. »

Well, earlier we brought you the first poster, now you can see all your favourite characters back in action. Having left their home due to the events in Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, a group of citizens returns to find it overrun by animal/food hybrids, including the Tacodile. The trailer gave me three of the biggest laughs I’ve had in ages, thanks to some excellent puns such as there being a leek in the boat, and noting that something will be a piece of cake. Yes, this is going to be very punny indeed, and who doesn’t love a good food pun? The original voices return, apart from Mr. T, who has been replaced with the much funnier Terry Crews.
