Watch Adam Sandler Sing New Version of the 'Chanukah Song'

21 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This week is Thanksgiving, pushing us full force into the holiday season. And to celebrate, Adam Sadler is bringing an early present for everyone! No matter what your religion is, you've probably enjoyed listening to his iconic Chanukah Song. Now, he's updated it. And there are some surprising and hilarious new inclusions.

As the title might suggest, this reworked Chanukah Song is the fourth version that Adam Sadler has released over the past 21 years. And as you can see, he's not really into celebrating the catchy holiday theme on its anniversary, instead surprising fans unexpectedly with his revised take on the classic. He opens the new video by gleefully telling those in the audience that he is about to introduce a fourth list of Jewish individuals. Not all of them, whom, mind you, should be celebrated.

Probably the biggest laugh in this new version of the Chanukah Song comes when he mentions Jared from Subway, »

Despite a dreary, rainy evening in New York City on Thursday, more than 750 guests — a melange of Hollywood, the culturati, New York society and the current cast of “Saturday Night Live” — stepped out to attend the American Museum of Natural History’s annual black-tie museum benefit. Lorne Michaels, executive producer of ‘SNL,’ and Tina Fey co-chaired the swanky gala, which raises money for the museum’s educational and scientific programming.

On the red carpet, ‘SNL’ cast members were buzzing about working with Matthew McConaughey, who for the first time in 14 years, is hosting the show on Nov. 21. The actors raved about the Oscar-winner’s strong work ethic and willingness to make fun of himself.”Matthew McConaughey has never disappointed a human being in his life, and he’s not picking this week to do that,” said Bobby Moynihan. “He is the best.

Jonah Ray, Kumail Nanjiani’s ‘Meltdown’ Renewed at Comedy Central

20 November 2015 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Comedy Central is ready to show more of what happens when comedians get off stage, announcing Friday that it has renewed Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani’s “The Meltdown” for a third season.

The series is hosted by the two stand-up stars and actors. It’s shot documentary style at the Nerdist Showroom in the back of Los Angeles’ Meltdown Comics and follows comedians as they experiment with new bits onstage and hang out backstage.

Season two, which was directed by Lance Bangs, featured performances by the likes of Andy Daly, Fred Armisen, Hannibal Buress, Abbi Jacobson, Ilana Glazer, Natasha Leggero, John Mulaney and Paul Scheer. Ratings-wise, It averaged 296,000 viewers (including 186,000 adults 18-49), according to Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates — not bad, given its late-night time slot and that it is a summer series.

The trailer for Zoolander 2 is so hot right now

18 November 2015 8:38 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Break out your best “Blue Steel” and grab an orange mocha Frappuccino because the first full-length trailer for Zoolander 2 is here.

The sequel to the 2001 cult comedy stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson as the two really, really ridiculously good-looking male models, Derek Zoolander and Hansel. Unfortunately, the pair are not so hot right now, as Derek and Hansel appear to have been pushed out of the fashion circuit by younger, more androgynous models.

Like the sequel before it, however, Zoolander 2’s catwalk squabbles are eventually overshadowed by the nefarious plans of evil mastermind Jacobim Mugatu (Will Ferrell) and his assistant-cum-barista Todd (Nathan Lee Graham).

Joining the fashion fray for the first time are Penelope “She’s hot. I trust her.” Cruz, Kristen WiigFred ArmisenOlivia MunnWillie Nelson, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

(But where’s Billy Zane?)

Full Trailer: "Zoolander 2"

18 November 2015 7:33 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Paramount Pictures has brought the trailer for the "Zoolander" sequel online which finally gives us a proper idea of the film's storyline. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson reprise their roles as Derek and Hansel who, ten years later, have been recruited by Penelope Cruz's Interpol agent to travel around Europe and find out who has been killing some of the world's most beautiful people.

Cruz, Will Ferell and an almost unrecognisable Kristen Wiig serve as the main characters in the trailer, but there's a host of other celebrity cameos in the clip including a certain British actor right at the start that will have people excited. Shot around Rome over three months last year, the film is slated to open February 12th.

Zoolander 2 Trailer Arrives

Serious question: Does Justin Bieber have enough self awareness to understand the joke he is part of in the new Zoolander 2 trailer? Benedict Cumberbatch, however, definitely yes.Someone is killing off the world's most beautiful people, leading Interpol to recruit Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald (Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, respectively) for the most perplexingly buzzed sequel to a minor comedy in recent years. It was a one joke sketch stretched out to feature length the first time, but I suppose that if you really, really like that one joke you'll be pleased to know that they've got plenty more of it.The trailer lies below....
