Funny or Die spoofs viral New York City street-harassment video

3 hours ago

Recently, a striking video circulated around the Internet showing the street harassment one woman endured during 10 hours of walking around NYC. Funny or Die has responded with a video showing what it's like to walk around the city as a white man. It's, well, different.  What happens to this man? He's asked if he wants to network. He gets offered help getting a job. He gets some high fives. He gets a Starbucks gift card: "Pumpkin spice season, son!" He gets crowned king. The video ends with a note: "100+ instances of verbal street privilege took place with 10 hours. This doesn't »

Jim Carrey reprises his Matthew McConaughey impression on 'Letterman'

5 hours ago

Sometimes, one actor rolls along who just invites parody—these days, that actor is Matthew McConaughey. Wednesday night, Jim Carrey went on the Late Show and brought back the Matthew McConaughey impression that he popularized when he hosted last week's episode of Saturday Night Live. Carrey first lampooned McConaughey in an SNL sketch that poked fun at the actor's superfluously philosophical, True Detective redux Lincoln car commercials. Letterman requested an impression of McConaughey, which Carrey was totally game for, as he spewed dazed McConaughey-like proverbs while rolling a "booger," which he calls, "not even a booger anymore, it's more of an anchor. »

Spider-Man fans, Marvel's next Summer 2015 teaser is for you

5 hours ago

Marvel has put out another one of its mysterious Summer 2015 teaser posters, and it's a doozy for Spider-Man fans. Illustrated by Adam Kubert, the teaser is titled Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows and despite being a simple image, it's absolutely loaded with callouts to some of the most controversial moments in Spidey history. There are few sore spots in Marvel Comics canon like the Spider-Marriage. Peter Parker married Mary Jane Watson way back in the landmark 1987 comic Amazing Spider-Man Annual #21, in a story called "The Wedding!" by David Michelinie and John Romita, Sr. Unlike a lot of comic book story decisions, »

Cookie Monster spoofs 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire'

17 hours ago

Harry Potter, who? Sesame Street's Cookie Monster becomes his own Triwizard champion of sorts in Furry Potter and The Goblet of Cookies. The video—a parody on Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire—acts as a lesson in listening. Professor Grumblemore (get it?!) gives Furry Potter three challenges (hence the Triwizard joke!) with very specific directions. In each challenge, Furry Potter has to sort the cookies and place them in the appropriate jar. When he follows the directions, he gets one step closer to the Goblet of Cookies. "My favorite part of cookie magic, to make these cookies disappear, »

Study: Pop stars die 25 years earlier than U.S. population average

23 hours ago

The road to pop stardom is paved with a fast-paced lifestyle—one that may be shortening the lifespans of many pop musicians, according to a new study. On Wednesday, The Atlantic published an article on a study that pinpointed the reasons why pop stars seem to die younger than the general population. In a study by the University of Sydney professor of psychology and music Dianna Kenny, 12,000 pop musicians who have died since 1950 were examined and Kenny found that pop stars lived on average 25 years fewer than the American population. (Kenny compiled data from not just the pop genre that »

Superman is kind of a jerk in his very first (very valuable) comic

23 hours ago

The Superman of today and the Superman that first appeared in 1938 are very different characters. While some of the important stuff is in place—Clark Kent, Lois Lane, and the tights—one of the more well-known bits of Superman trivia is that most of the stuff strongly associated with Superman didn't come along until later. Originally, Superman couldn't fly, he didn't have heat vision or freeze breath. (To be fair, a lot of modern Superman stories are strangely embarrassed by that power for some reason.) And much of what becomes familiar hasn't quite taken its final form yet: Krypton and Metropolis are both unnamed, »

'I bombed my D off in front of his whole family': Comedian Beth Stelling talks hell gigs on 'Polished'

29 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT

This week on Polished: Comedian Beth Stelling and host Jamie Lee recount their best horror stories from performing stand-up. Stelling, who lives in Los Angeles but cut her teeth in Chicago's famous comedy scene, has a good one that has a nice extra layer of embarrassment. It's the kind of thing she mines well on Sweet Beth, her great debut stand-up album, which she released in 2012. »

This week's cover: First look at 'Terminator: Genisys'

29 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT

The Terminator is having a bad day. It's a muggy July afternoon in New Orleans—the temperature is loitering in the triple digits—and Arnold Schwarzenegger is inside a giant warehouse on the grounds of Nasa's Michoud Assembly Facility. Suited up in a black leather jacket with green-painted latex obscuring most of the right side of his face, he is again playing the indelible robot that solidified his place in Hollywood some 30 years ago. So far today the former governor of California has been stepped on and forced to crawl on the ground, and now, as he gasps for breath fighting his opponent, »

Chris Rock's 'SNL' promos are mostly about Prince

29 October 2014 8:21 AM, PDT

But really, can you blame him? Sure, former Saturday Night Live cast member Chris Rock returning to host the show for the first time since 1996—his musical guest was The Wallflowers! The Wallflowers!—is a pretty big deal. But even Rock admits it's not quite as exciting as the presence of the Purple One, whose Nov. 1 performance will take the format of one uninterrupted eight-minute jam session. (Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. on Nov. 2, giving some viewers an extra hour on Sunday to replay that eight-minute jam session over and over.) So even though The Artist doesn't actually »

Funny or Die has 'Game of Thrones' on the brain for Halloween

29 October 2014 7:59 AM, PDT

There's nothing wrong with going all-in on a Halloween costume, even if your neighbor's kids have to stand in for the members of the Night's Watch. To celebrate Halloween—and the worldwide phenomenon that Game of Thrones has become—Funny or Die has put together a video showcasing just how far fans can go while imaging themselves as a citizen of the Seven Kingdoms. The video comes from Fod regular Luke Barnett, who wrote the video and stars as a member of the Night's Watch leading the charge for a successful Halloween candy horde—which likely involves far fewer whitewalker »

Ashton Kutcher is over Charlie Sheen's 'Two and a Half Men' comments

29 October 2014 7:54 AM, PDT

When Ashton Kutcher appeared on Conan on Oct. 28, Conan O'Brien asked him about Charlie Sheen's recent comments suggesting he'd like to return to Two and a Half Men in its final season. And it's clear in his response that there's not much love for his sitcom predecessor. O'Brien posed the question to Kutcher, who said he's "stopped listening to what Charlie Sheen said." In fact, all he hears are the trumpet-like sounds of Charlie Brown's teacher. "I just keep saying thank you for the great job," Kutcher said, owing his great job to Charlie Sheen "not having it anymore. »

Daniel Radcliffe raps 'Alphabet Aerobics' on 'Tonight Show'

29 October 2014 6:56 AM, PDT

Daniel Radcliffe knows the alphabet—and performed a complicated rap song on Tuesday to prove it. The Horns star went on The Tonight Show Tuesday evening and revealed that he's always had an "obsession" with memorizing tricky rap songs, including Blackalicious' "Alphabet Aerobics." So, of course, Jimmy Fallon made him show off his skills. "Alphabet Aerobics" is a fast-paced song filled with tongue twisters, but Radcliffe nailed the performance—even when the tempo picked way up at the end. Daniel Radcliffe: movie and rap star. Horns arrives in theaters Oct. 31. »

12 thoughts about Marvel's big announcement

28 October 2014 3:52 PM, PDT

1. Nothing actually happened today. The Internet goes crazy for announcements, and today might very well go down in history as the single most announcement-y announcement in the history of superhero movies or movies or pop culture or human history. But an announcement is not a movie. Anticipation is another word for enjoying something that doesn't exist yet. Currently, here on the Internet, there are bizarre people hurling insult grenades at critics who have committed the sin of liking but not loving Interstellar—a movie that none of the bizarre people hurling insult grenades have actually seen. Maybe they will never actually see Interstellar. »

Here's how a 'Star Wars' laser pistol would work in real life

28 October 2014 3:36 PM, PDT

Every Star Wars fan at one time or another has probably made the infamous noise of the franchise's firearms. But scientists in Poland are trying to find out what one of those lasers would actually look and act like. Researchers at the Laser Centre of the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences have published a video with their findings. The silent video employs a high-powered laser to shoot a series of pulses down a hall and record the process. Approximately 10 shots were emitted per second, with the pulse lasting about a dozen femtoseconds—millionths of a billionth of a second, »

Watch James Franco and Chris O'Dowd in an exclusive clip from 'Of Mice and Men'

28 October 2014 2:27 PM, PDT

James Franco was eager to film the production of Of Mice and Men in which he made his Broadway debut, but it wasn't as simple as he thought it'd be. "I thought I just could bring in my old film school friends and we could just film it that way, quick and easy, and it turned out that that wasn't the case," Franco tells EW. "So we needed a company that could both film it, and have some sort of distribution system to put it out and recoup the cost." That's where National Theatre Live stepped in, making the Anna D. »

The 2015 Golden Globes will be Amy Poehler and Tina Fey's last

28 October 2014 11:09 AM, PDT

On the Today show on Tuesday, Amy Poehler explained that this coming Golden Globes will be her and Tina Fey's last time hosting the awards. "It's law of diminishing returns, which is why this is our last time," Poehler said. "Unless you want to be a perennial host, there's nowhere to go but down." That would be a great theory, but their second time hosting led to a 10-year high in ratings for the show and featured one of the greatest George Clooney jokes ever, which almost topped the James Cameron joke from the previous year.

Classic LucasArts games are available again for the first time in years

28 October 2014 11:02 AM, PDT

For many, Lucasfilm is synonymous with Star Wars. There's no reason why it shouldn't be, either—Star Wars is huge. But if you were playing video games at any point during the late '80s throughout the '90s, chances are you have a very different association to the studio bearing George Lucas' name. Started in 1982 by the man himself, Lucasfilm Games (later LucasArts) would become a beloved games studio that didn't just make great Star Wars games (like the classic Star Wars: Tie Fighter), but quirky and frequently hilarious adventure games like Day of the Tentacle and the Monkey Island series. »
