Take a look at an early clip of tonight's episode of "The Muppets", where Dave Grohl and Animal go head-to-head in an epic drum-off. Dave Grohl, the lead singer of the Foo Fighters and the former drummer of Nirvana, guest stars on "The Muppets" this week, along side actor Joseph-Gordon Levitt. Grohl can be seen facing off against Animal in the clip below. Dave Grohl previously appeared in "The Muppets" 2011 movie as Animal's replacement drummer. The last time a drum-off was featured on a late night show was in May 2014, when actor Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith drummed-off to "Don't Fear the Reaper" on the "Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon". The episode, titled "Going, going, Gonzo", will air December 1: Gonzo debates attempting a stunt from his past that he never completed, prompting Kermit to schedule it for Up Late with Miss Piggy. »

Dave Grohl has overcome countless obstacles throughout his storied career — not even a slippery stage in Sweden could keep the Foo Fighter from shredding — but the musician finally met his match on ABC's The Muppets, where he faced Animal in a ferocious drum-off.
The clip finds the Foo Fighter and the wild-eyed sensei of the skins going beat for beat, and fill for fill, during the show's closing credits. While Animal strikes first, Grohl taps a cymbal and fires back, "Oh what's that, a bell? Time for school."

Sure, Joseph Gordon-Levitt can dance and move his mouth aplenty, but when the time comes, does he actually have any singing chops in him? Yes, yes, he certainly does, that's a stupid question to ask. In this clip for tomorrow's episode of The Muppets, Jgl (one of the many famous guest stars the ABC show has recruited this season) has the pleasure of dueting with everyone's favorite diva, Miss Piggy, to the classic jazz standard. Please allow them to fill your heart with song, and let them sing for ever more. »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has come to embody the everyman for modern audiences. As the hopeless romantic in (500) Days of Summer (2009), the cancer patient in 50/50 (2011), or the naïve cop in The Dark Knight Rises (2012), his subtle charm and likable demeanor have fallen in line with the iconic average Joes of yesteryear. In the past decade alone, he’s gone from child star to indie A-lister (Brick ) to big budget B-player (Inception ), raking in critical acclaim and a rabid fan base of followers. But barring a few indie turns (Mysterious Skin , Looper ), the actor had yet to break out of his nice guy box and grab mainstream cinema by the throat. That is, until now. Inhabiting high wire walker Philippe Petit, The Walk presents viewers with Gordon-Levitt: the charismatic outsider and spark plug showman. Baptism under wire, if you will.
Petit, a French street performer in the 1970s, developed a pipe dream that »

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.

Isn’t it great when a movie surprises you, coming out of nowhere to deliver unexpected thrills, laughs or tears when everything you’d seen or read suggested it was going to be a monumental stinker? These 15 movies confounded expectations to prove that, as cinema lovers, we should try and be as open-minded as possible when approaching any film.
Yes, the year isn’t over yet, but there’s really no need to wait for the likes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Joy or The Hateful Eight, because everyone assumes those movies are all going to be at least good if not great (and if they’re not, they’ll end up on a whole other list altogether), and is there really any chance of Alvin and the Chimpmunks: Road Chip being anything above two-star (though we admittedly said just that about some of these films)?

BFI Check out the Sight & Sound poll for 2015. Not pleased that The Assassin topped the immeasurably finer twofer of Carol & Mad Max Fury Road but it is what it is. Perennial critical darling peculiarities abound like Blackhat placing about Ex Machina. Oh please. I didn't hate the former like some but one must assume that's solely on Michael Mann's reputation, the way some filmmakers get a competition spot at Cannes simply because they directed something.
The Guardian on a Carol gift-wrapping promotion - it breaks my heart that people keep thinking this is a watch it on DVD film. It's So breathtakingly cinematic. Go To The Theater.

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, »
Performing at the Judd Apatow & Friends event at the New York Comedy Festival at Carnegie Hall earlier this month, Adam Sandler updated the lyrics to "The Hanukkah Song" once again.

The lyrics are below if you want to sing along. (You do.)Put on your yarmulke, here comes ChanukahSo much fun-ukah to celebrate Chanukah Chanukkah is the Festival of Lights, Instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights.

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.

One of the most heralded 3D films ever made is headed to home video when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment brings director Robert Zemeckis' The Walk starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as famous wire walker Philippe Petit to Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.
