Top Five Funniest Movies Of 2014 So Far

20 August 2014 1:06 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’re over half way through the year now and the end of the summer is upon us, but rather than feeling down while those nights draw in, and the days become shorter, we thought we’d recap our favourite five funny movies of the year to cheer you up. So, get your chin up and take a look at our top five of 2014 so far.

5. The Muppets Most Wanted

It may not have done as well as its predecessor, but James Bobin’s hilarious Muppet movie sequel Muppets Most Wanted gave us a chuckle or ten when it was released in cinemas back in March. Now available on DVD and Blu-Ray, as well as digital download, the Ricky Gervais, Miss Piggy and Kermit starrer is definitely one to see if you’re a fan of our furry friends.

4. Bad Neighbours

This Seth Rogen and Zac Efron starrer came out »

NFL's Super Bowl Halftime Show to Katy Perry, Rihanna and Coldplay: Show Me the Money!

19 August 2014 7:25 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The National Football League apparently wants future Super Bowl halftime performers to pay to play. A report in The Wall Street Journal says the NFL has asked Coldplay, Rihanna and Katy Perry if they'd be willing to offer a percentage of their future tour earnings or “some other type of financial contribution” to perform at the big game in February. The theory is that the exposure is so great, that artists should pay for some of it.

Watch: New Ads Featuring Dave Franco, Kevin Hart, Eva Green And Jude Law

18 August 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Advertising is next to godliness...at least in Hollywood, so here's a roundup of some actors keeping bills paid, mortgages updated and vacations bankrolled. Eva Green will be the face of the Campari Calendar in 2015, which we didn't even know was a thing. Check out the teaser video below which is both sexy and totally terrifying. [Cinemur] And while we're on the subject of alcohol, Jude Law put on his dancing shoes for a six minute short film-vertisement for Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Basically, it follows his character as he tries to win a luxury yacht via the power of dance. Okay, then. [Variety] Lastly, Dave Franco and Kevin Hart appear in a really loud and probably epilepsy inducing, three minute spot for EA's "Madden Season." NFL-ers LeSean McCoy, Colin Kaepernick and Richard Sherman all feature too, if that's your thing.

This Is What Happens When Dave Franco and Kevin Hart Join Forces for a Madden NFL 15 Rap Video—Watch!

15 August 2014 4:51 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Dear Peyton and Eli Manning: Your rap video was cute, and we give you an A for effort, but you've been outdone. Comedian Kevin Hart teamed up with pretty boy Dave Franco in what might be one of the greatest video game commericals there ever was to promote Madden NFL 15: Madden Season (which comes out later this month). The clip starts out with Hart showing up to Franco's uber-luxurious pad just to give Dave a big smack on the face—ouch! That's when the music starts and we hear, "Madden football season in America is a competitive time, an emotional time, an annual ritual that causes this man to put hands on this pretty face." And all of a sudden, Kevin Hart is surrounded by a live »

Dave Franco, Kevin Hart Slap and Rap in Most Annoying Madden NFL Ad Ever Created (Video)

15 August 2014 4:12 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Dave Franco is randomly attacked by Kevin Hart in a wacky new ad for Madden NFL 15 released Friday by video gamemakers EA Sports. The almost four-minute long commercial-music video called “Madden Season,” starts off innocently enough with Hart walking up to Franco's beautiful mansion and frantically knocking at his beautiful door. See video: Watch Outtakes from Conan & Dave Franco's Creepy Tinder Segment “Kev, what's up?” Franco asks. Hart's only response is a cold, hard, inexplicable slap to the face. “It's Madden season,” informs a chorus of cheerleaders/back-up dancers who appear behind Hart randomly, as if paying unneeded homage to Gwen Stefani‘s 2005 video. »

You Will Love or Hate This Madden NFL 15: Madden Season Commercial

15 August 2014 3:58 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Madden NFL 15 has enlisted celebrities Kevin Hart and Dave Franco, along with several other forgettable cameos, for one of the more stereotypical and annoying video game commercials you're likely to ever see.

According to the marketing folks at Electronic Arts, the arrival of "Madden Season"  means that dudes have to act like douche bags, girls will dance and flash gang signs, and massive celebrities parties will rip and roar through the night. There's a video game in the commercial somewhere, and if you manage to stick around for the final few seconds of the three-and-a-half minute ad, you might just see it.

Maybe you have to be in the right mood to enjoy what EA's offering. Maybe if I were drunk then laughs would ensue. Reactions on YouTube are split right down the middle; it's either pure genius or utter garbage. In my opinion, EA would have been better served »

Kevin Hart vs. Dave Franco in crazy new Madden NFL 15 spot

15 August 2014 3:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's been a pretty amazing year for Kevin Hart. Three hit movies and a new title for the fireplace mantle: box office superstar.  2014 hasn't been that bad for Dave Franco either. He nailed a major role in "Neighbors," voiced a character in "The Lego Movie" and even had a memorable cameo in "22 Jump Street."  It's not shocking then that the minds behind EA Sports new marketing campaign for Madden NFL 15 recruited the duo to star in their 2014 TV spot. Yes, I know what you're thinking, "Ugh, a commercial about a video game I don't even play or care about. Why on earth would I watch this?"  Our response, "Sure it's an ad, but it's really more like a music video spoof. And did you really think Hart would let this not be funny?" Plus, Portland Trailblazers and potential USA Basketball PG Damian Lillard tries to show he's ready for the »

EA Sports Releases Interesting Madden Trailer Featuring Dave Franco, Kevin Hart

15 August 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Even if you are not entirely a Madden fan, you will most likely enjoy this interesting new trailer from EA Sports! 

As you can see, the trailer itself features very little gameplay, but it's still getting the job done. It features Kevin Hart and Dave Franco as they get ready to battle it out in the upcoming Madden season. The trailer builds and builds as terrible things keep happening to Franco until he finally explodes. Lucky for others, he lets his rage go in Madden, well most of it. Unlike his rival! 

Madden NFL 15 hits store shelves August 26th!

Cool Videos: Dave Franco and Kevin Hart in the craziest video game ad ever

15 August 2014 6:10 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

EA Sports is gearing up to launch their latest iteration of the Madden franchise and they've hired Dave Franco and Kevin Hart to headline their advertisement for it. What follows is an unwarranted slap, the worst thing you can do to a man's car, dolled-up cheerleaders, raps with "blah" lyrics, a dolphin-filled swimming pool and the bear equivalent of Deadmau5. Trust me, it has to be seen to be believed. As much as I enjoy gaming, I never got into the »

If you’ve fantasized about one of them, two of them, or all of them together, you’re not alone. They’re Hollywood brothers. And at one point or another, they’ve made us thank our lucky stars that talent and good looks can come in multiple forms.

We may find ourselves comparing sexy siblings that are in the spotlight, such as Casey and Ben Affleck, Shawn and Marlon Wayans and the Jonas brothers. But don’t be fooled, there are often times yet another brother in the family we don’t know about, and sometimes, they’re even the hottest. Take a look at these sets of hunky Hollywood bros and see who we thought lucked out by scoring the most attractive genes in the family.

Conan O'Brien, Larry King & Andy Richter Eat Pot Brownies on "Conan"

8 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Now that's surprising! Larry King stopped by Thursday's "Conan" where he opened up about getting high (from second-hand smoke) with Snoop Lion. O'Brien thought it would be a great idea to get high for real on the late night show, and shared some "pot brownies" with the guys. The whole interview's pretty hilarious, and King even broke out in giggles almost immediately after ingesting the marijuana-filled treat. Video: Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien Look For Ladies on Tinder! Check out the ridiculous video above! But that wasn't the first time Larry's engaged in some marijuana use. Aside from inhaling second-hand smoke with Snoop, King admitted he's tried it a couple other times. "I smoked it a few times with my doctor," the 80-year-old revealed. "It was very enjoyable, I liked it, but I used to smoke a lot of cigarettes and I had a heart attack in 1987."Video: Kris Jenner »

The Transporter Legacy Set For 2015 Release

2 August 2014 11:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

EuropaCorp’s Transporter trilogy truly marked the arrival of Jason Statham as a bona fide action star, and now the franchise is getting a reboot – albeit without Statham. However, The Transporter Legacy, as the fourth film in the series has recently been titled, may launch a new actor to action stardom.

Ed Skrein, known for playing Daario Naharis on HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, will be taking on the role of Frank Martin, who is called The Transporter because he’s the best driver and mercenary money can buy. In The Transporter Legacy, Frank meets Anna (Loan Chabanol), the leader of a group of criminals. The pair team up and attempt to take down a group of ruthless Russian human traffickers who have also kidnapped Frank’s father (to be played by “a prominent thesp”).

25 July 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Your Daily Roundup of Hollywood Happenings & Star Shenanigans!

In Your Lgbt Dreams!: James Franco might have posted what appears to be a story about his brother Dave Franco dating Zac Efron, but it's (sadly) not true. "Efron and My brother, dating!!!!!! Congrats, boys! I'm so happy for you!!!" James wrote in the doctored shot. The story was actually an April report that claimed that Zac – who is now linked to Michelle Rodriguez – was dating his "Neighbors" co-star Halston Sage.

James Franco Dating Dave Franco

24 July 2014 11:38 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

James Franco posted a hilarious screenshot of a supposed HollywoodLife article announcing brother Dave Franco's relationship with his Neighbors co-star Zac Efron (and while we think it's safe to assume that everyone understands this is totally fake, we may be wrong, so here's your disclaimer: Dave Franco and Zac Efron are not really dating. Sorry?)

Yes, the screenshot looks pretty convincing, but if you pay attention to the details of the picture, you'll notice that the font varies in different instances and the author of the story is "Dave Francock" with a thumbnail of James Franco.

The 127 Hours star jokingly captioned the photo, "Effron and My brother, dating!!!!!! Congrats, boys! I'm so happy for you!!!"

So who was the funnyman (or woman) behind this masterpiece? Well, it's unclear. It turns out there's an actual "Dave Francock" on Instagram, who posts multiple pictures with Dave Franco edits, including this article. »
