With Wet Hot American Summer you tend to expect the unexpected, and that's exactly the route that the Netflix revival series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, has taken per the hilarious first trailer.
Netflix Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is a prequel to the original film and set during the first day at Camp Firewood rather than the last. What makes this turning back of the clock hilarious is that the cast is substantially older and now playing younger versions of themselves from the original film.
Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter are all back from the Wet Hot American Summer movie to reprise their roles for the Netflix series. They are joined by newcomers Jon Hamm, »
In a tight race, Disney-Pixar’s animated comedy pulled in an estimated $45.3 million in the U.S. over the five days — giving it $246.2 million stateside in its third week at 4,158 locations. “Inside Out,” with Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Phyllis Smith, Lewis Black and Bill Hader voicing the emotions of an 11-year-old girl, is showing impressive staying power at multiplexes.
Universal’s fourth weekend of “Jurassic World” remained a solid draw, three weeks after its record-setting opening. The dino thriller, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, stomped its way to $43.8 million at 3,737 screens and ranks as the fourth-highest domestic grosser of all time with $568.2 million.
For the three days covering Friday through Sunday, “Jurassic World” has the edge on »

The Disney-Pixar animated pic pulled in $12.5 million on Friday, bringing its cumulative haul to $228 million Stateside in its third week of competition. Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling and Bill Hader voice the emotions of an 11-year-old girl in the family film, which is playing in 4,158 locations.
Close behind is another hefty holdover: “Jurassic World.” The dinosaur actioner, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, logged $11.8 million in Friday grosses across 3,737 screens. It will probably add another $15 million-$20 million to its cumulative gross before the weekend is over, pushing the Universal release farther past its already-crossed $500 million mark.
“Terminator Genisys” managed $10.6 million in Friday receipts on 3,758 screens, good for third place. The fourth installment in the dystopian robot series, which stars Emilia Clarke and Arnold Schwarzenegger, is expected to finish at $43 million for the five-day weekend, »

With its jokes about abstract thought, this Pixar/Disney journey inside an 11-year-old’s mind is as funny as it is inventive
The precursor to the movie Inside Out, as any 1980s reader of the Beano will know, was a comic strip called the Numskulls, in which a group of tiny operatives ran around inside a boy’s brain, pulling the levers that governed his five senses, with hilarious results. In the Pixar/Disney version, the jokes are more sophisticated and the brain workers hung up on more existential concerns, but the idea is roughly the same: a portrait of the inside of 11-year-old Riley’s mind, where central command is run by five warring emotions – Amy Poehler as Joy, Lewis Black as Anger, Mindy Kaling as Disgust, Bill Hader as Fear and Phyllis Smith as Sadness.
Sadness is fat, with large glasses and an unfortunate rollneck sweater, and every »

Fourth of July is just two days away, and Netflix is celebrating with some good-old American camping. The streaming platform released a poster and official trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp on July 2, 2015.
Netflix’s Wet Hot series takes place before the events of the 2001 movie by the same name (minus the First Day of Camp bit). The series’ official trailer reintroduces viewers to the beloved-but-wacky Camp Firewood counsellors, played by big-screen favorites like Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, and Elizabeth Banks. Plus, the Wet Hot trailer shows glimpses of new cast members, including Kristen Wiig, Chris Pine, and Jon Hamm.
The poster for Wet Hot American Summer is a throwback to the original film’s art. All the cast members’ images, including those of the newcomers, are included, though in a slightly less cartoon-ish style than the Wet Hot film’s poster.

After teasing the upcoming Wet Hot American Summer reboot with a goofy, VHS-tinted teaser, Netflix has offered an official trailer with a hilarious, enticing look at the star-studded prequel series, First Day of Camp.
The clip begins with talk of blossoming summer love and fun, as well as an uncomfortable Camp Firewood meeting that's literally crashed by Paul Rudd's surly, too-cool counselor Andy. When chastised for being a week late, Andy replies: "Whatever. It smells weird. Who beefed?" (Notably, the counselor supervisor is played by H. Jon Benjamin, and with any luck, »
Following up the first sneak peak in the form of a retro trailer, Netflix has released the first official, full-length trailer for its upcoming series, "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp". More so than the previous look, this trailer provides a really good idea of what we can expect from this 8 episode series in terms of its comedy style. Even after a few times through the trailer, Paul Rudd riding in on his motorcycle and jumping off continues to make me laugh. Camp Firewood is staffed by a phenomenal cast that includes Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, and the aforementioned Paul Rudd - all of whom are exponentially more famous now than they were when appearing in the original film. Towards the end of the trailer we are also introduced to a new member of the cast, an actor named Joh Hamm, and by the looks of it, »

After years of chatter about a prequel to David Wain’s 2001 cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer, Netflix finally stepped up to the plate and green-lit a miniseries reteaming the co-writer/director with a stacked cast of comedy all-stars. Now, the first full trailer for the series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, has arrived, and it’s an absolute riot.
The limited eight-episode series unfolds over the course of everyone’s first day at Camp Firewood back in the summer of 1981. Inexplicably, Wain was able to pull together literally everyone who appears in his movie, despite their staggeringly busy schedules, and also tap a bevy of newcomers for the prequel, including Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, John Slattery and Jordan Peele.

After a brilliant VHS-tinged teaser, Netflix has released the first full trailer for the prequel series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. This is the culmination of years of talk about a follow-up to the 2001 cult comedy film Wet Hot American Summer, as co-writer/director David Wain and his cast were keen on making a prequel in which the now fortysomething actors would be playing younger versions of their 2001 selves. They finally got to make it in the form of a Netflix miniseries, and result looks absolutely fantastic. As the title suggests, the eight half-hour episodes take place on the first day of camp back in 1981. Logistics be damned—Wain was able to wrangle nearly every single original cast member to reprise their roles, plus a slew of new faces like Jordan Peele, Kristen Wiig, and “introducing Jon Hamm.” This trailer highlights all of them, and it’s »

In the newest trailer for Netflix’s upcoming “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,” H. Jon Benjamin lays down the rules to his fellow camp counselors. “No relations between campers and counselors,” he says. “This includes: dry humping, necking, wet humping, finger banging, wheelbarrow-ing, salt water taffy-ing.” That is just one of a series of hilarious exchanges in the latest preview of the prequel series to the cult favorite 2001 film “Wet Hot American Summer.” See video: Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd Camp It Up in First 'Wet Hot American Summer' Trailer Original stars Bradley Cooper, »
