Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) have been friends since childhood, and for a decade, their yearly Christmas Eve reunion has been an annual night of debauchery and hilarity. Now that they’re entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties…
Set for a UK release next Friday, December 4th, here’s two new clips from The Night Before to get you in the mood – and the Christmas spirit!

It's been over 20 years since Adam Sandler first performed his "Chanukah Song" on Weekend Update, and over time he's updated the song's lyrics to include different celebrities who are Jewish, "just like you and me." Last week in San Diego, he performed the fourth version, which includes lyrics about Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson, among many others, at a live show, and last night posted it to Happy Madison's YouTube channel. Enjoy. »

Festival also confirms Michael Moore set to compile next year’s ‘Top 10’.
At a packed ceremony in Amsterdam last night, the 28th International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (Idfa) announced its prizes.
In previous years, the Idfa award ceremony was held during the festival’s final weekend but the event was brought forward to Wednesday night so that more industry delegates and filmmakers could attend.
Among the main prizes, Jerzy Sladkowski’s Don Juan won the Vpro Idfa Award for Best Feature-Length Documentary and Ukrainian Sheriffs by Roman Bondarchuk won the Idfa Special Jury Award for Feature-Length Documentary.
The prize for the best Dutch documentary went to Ester Gould for A Strange Love Affair With Ego.

Adam Sandler has released a new version of his comedy classic “Chanukah Song.” First debuting the tune on “Saturday Night Live” in 1994, Sandler uses the song as a way to praise prominent Jewish celebrities. This time around, he gives shout-outs to Scarlett Johansson, Shia Labeouf, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Seth Rogen. He also honored the founders of Google and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.

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, »
Back when Adam Sandler was kind of an up-and-comer, one of his first claims to fame was the holiday song "The Chanukah Song," giving a festive jam to the Jewish holiday. Sandler has never turned his back on the song, updating it periodically, and now, this year's version (the fourth!) is here. This time, stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Adam Levine, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt all made the list, along with some fictional characters like Harry Potter and Olaf. Guess what? Still fun to hear Sandler belt the names out after all these years. »

The cast of new holiday comedy "The Night Before" stopped by Spike's "Lip Sync Battle," the series adaptation of the popular "Tonight Show" segment, hosted by LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen. As expected, the two guests tear it up and get down: Anthony Mackie lip syncs to Mc Hammer's "2 Legit to Quit" and proves to be a natural at stripping off his cool white suit down to a singlet. However, it's Joseph Gordon-Levitt who leaves LL Cool J with his jaw on the floor as Jgl channels his inner Janet Jackson and owns the role with "Rhythm Nation." Anthony Mackie can't help but show his admiration and surprise at his co-stars skills. Check out the video above and decide who's the better of the two.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt pulled out all the stops on the recent holiday special of Lip Sync Battle. While Anthony Mackie's performance may have been "2 Legit 2 Quit," even he couldn't top his The Night Before costar. Joseph stole the show with his spot-on rendition of Janet Jackson's "Rhythm Nation." Not only did he amaze everyone with his epic dance moves, but he even wore full makeup and a wig for the complete transformation. No doubt about it - Joseph is still the king of lip-syncing. Check out both performances above! »

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah, Spike: We all chipped in and got you 1.8 million viewers for the first ever “Lip Sync Battle” holiday special. “The Night Before’s” Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie were joined by legendary hip-hop group Run Dmc, delivering the No. 1 entertainment show on cable among adults 18-49. Also importantly, the one-hour original special’s audience was 57 percent female, something that has been a priority for Spike. That 1.8 million total comes with three days of delayed viewing. During the most-recent season, “Lip Sync Battle” averaged 2.5 million total viewers with seven-day delayed viewing. We’re still a few days away. »

Three months after the finale of its inaugural season, Spike’s “Lip Sync Battle” climbed its way back to the top of the Cable/Streaming Leaderboard following a holiday special that aired on November 19.
While most of the show’s epic performances have continued racking up views on YouTube, some may say that Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Janet Jackson cover was one for the books. After just 72 hours online, the clip has racked up more than 5 million views, making one of the show’s most-viewed clips since the first few weeks of season one (April), but still a long shot from the number one clip featuring Dwayne Johnson vs. Jimmy Fallon, which has an impressive 23.4 million views.

Back in July 2012, Lionsgate confirmed that Suzanne Collins' final Hunger Games novel will be split into a two-part movie. The decision, which came just months after The Hunger Games franchise launched, angered many fans of the books, and it seems that strategy may have backfired. Box Office Mojo reports that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 took the top spot at the box office with $101 million, the lowest opening weekend of all four movies.
The $101 million opening weekend is far lower than many box office projections, many of which predicted the franchise finale would earn around $120 million. The Hunger Games opened in 2012 with $152.5 million, followed by 2013's The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which opened with a franchise-high $158 million, and last year's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 with $121.8 million. The franchise has taken in $2.2 billion worldwide since opening just three years ago, and while The Hunger Games: Mockingjay »

Going into the weekend it was expected that "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2" would score the lowest opening of the series to date. Just how low though has surprised.
The final film in the series is headed towards a $101 million opening weekend at the U.S. box-office - an amazing number for almost any other franchise, but the lowest for the series to date by almost $20 million.
The final film has had the fifth-highest opening of the year and a $24,198 per screen average - again those are stunning figures for any other film, but that's beneath even the lowest projections domestically. 'Mockingjay Part 2' also grossed $146 million overseas in 87 markets with most of it from the UK, China, Germany and Mexico.
"Spectre" continues to go fairly steady, dropping to second place with $14.6 million and a $670 million global haul as of this weekend. Domestically it's falling behind "Skyfall" with the movie nabbing $153.7 million so far, »
