Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprise the roles of Lloyd and Harry later this year, as the belated sequel to Dumb And Dumber heads into cinemas. Due for release in the Us in November, before arriving in the UK the month after, Dumb And Dumber To reunites the pair with directors the Farrelly brothers. And to mark the upcoming release of the film, a pair of new posters have been released.
We suspect a second trailer for the film may not be too far away, but for now, here are the new posters. We like these.

The latest promotional campaign for “Dumb and Dumber To” may be too clever for the film's lead characters. Stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels revealed two new movie posters for the film that parody Scarlett Johansson‘s “Lucy.” See video: Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels Recreate Mockingbird Duet From ‘Dumb and Dumber’ Channeling the movie posters for the hit sci-fi film, the parodies feature Carrey and Daniels’ characters with a “dumb” twist on the tagline for Johansson's film. While Johansson asked moviegoers to imagine what it would be like if they could use 100 percent of their brains, “Dumb and Dumber To” is. »

Perfectly parodying the poster campaign for the Scarlett Johansson starring Lucy, new posters for Dumb and Dumber To have come online, courtesy of Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey's Twitter feeds. Back in the day, Dumb and Dumber parodied the poster for Forrest Gump, so it's nice to see that trend continuing. Released: 14th November (U.S.)/ 19th December (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reprise their signature roles as Lloyd and Harry in the sequel to the smash hit that took the physical comedy and kicked it in the nuts: Dumb and Dumber To. The original film’s directors, Peter and Bobby Farrelly, take Lloyd and Harry on a road trip to find a child Harry never knew he had and the responsibility neither should ever, ever be given. »

Two new posters for Dumb and Dumber To have been released, one each for Jim Carrey's Lloyd and Jeff Daniels' Harry, both in the vein of the posters for the recent Scarlett Johansson actioner Lucy. Dumb and Dumber To is the sequel to 1994's Dumb and Dumber starring Carrey and Daniels as Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne as they hit the road to find Harry's long-lost daughter to donate a kidney for a transplant. The movie is set for a November 14 release. »

Lucy isn't the only movie character whose brain capacity percentage is relevant. Lloyd's brain is important to. Dumb And Dumber To star Jim Carrey shared the above poster, which parodies Lucy but switches up the math a bit to remind us that Carrey's Dumb and Dumber character's brain is also functioning outside the norm, in its own way. Because Lloyd Christmas is anything but average. Note the words at the top of the poster: "The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what he could do with 1%." One look at the poster for Luc Besson's Lucy and it all makes sense: Lloyd even gets his own rainbow eyes to stare us down with his 1%. Currently in theaters now, Lucy stars Scarlett Johannson as a woman who's tricked into being a drug mule. When the synthetic drug leaks into her system, she acquires more and more use of her brain, »
In all of Frank Tashlin’s work, there is nothing quite so boldly staged as the delirious sequence in 1961′s The Ladies Man, in which Jerry Lewis, the film’s director and Tashlin’s nominal pupil, deconstructs a panic attack in twenty five seconds. Framed inside an enormous set that resembles the interior of a gargantuan and painstakingly detailed dollhouse, Lewis’ character, a terrified schlemiel by the name of Herbert H. Heebert, is in the midst of a mad dash up the set’s elaborate staircase when suddenly he’s literally beside himself with fright, splitting into two, then three, then four similarly fearstruck replicants, zig-zagging about the hallways until they all disappear one after another into the safety of their bedroom, the door slamming in quick succesion with four emphatic bangs. No, there was nothing close to this deft and dizzy blend of Psychology 101 and slapstick in Tashlin’s portfolio, »

Facebook/The Other Faces of Nicolas Cage
Nicolas Cage is one of the most divisive figures in the film industry: on one hand, he’s an Oscar-winning actor who’s worked with almost every major director worth mentioning, yet on the other, he tirelessly spends much of his time slumming in terrible, low-rent thrillers for a quick pay-day, in an attempt to pay off his gigantic tax bill.
If you haven’t already seen it, you should certainly check out Simon Gallagher’s article about 10 movies that were almost ruined by Nicolas Cage, and now, we’re going to examine 13 movies which would certainly have been much better with Cage’s unmistakably eccentric presence.

This weekend, the box office will be dominated by the marvelous appeal of Guardians of the Galaxy, a superhero tent pole that is earning wildly emphatic critical praise. But when it comes to winning the interwebs, that honor goes to a far saucier property. And it did it with plenty of sex appeal. THR reports that Fifty Shades of Grey's trailer has already amassed the most views of 2014, more than 36.4 million since it debuted on July 24th. These numbers were tabulated by the tech firm Zefr, which gave a breakdown of the runners-up as well. As you might expect, all of these were summer releases that boast loads of action and usually star power. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' first trailer has earned 31 million views. Godzilla and Transformers: Age of Extinction's trailers each amassed 26.3 million views in their first weeks online. And lastly, Dumb and Dumber Too hit the 23.5 million mark. »
If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
"Jimmy Kimmel Live" was back with a bang following a two-week hiatus, hosting the cast of "Guardians of the Galaxy." Chris Pratt, who plays Guardians leader Peter Quill, dominated the conversation, discussing his weight loss regimen ("vomiting, Zumba, and Shake Weight") and how much fun it was to shoot the film. The actor noted that he was "truly playing every day. I had a laser gun and a spaceship." But that playing came at a price, as Pratt admitted that he got so swept away shooting his fake gun that he couldn't help but making shooting noises with his mouth -- to the ire of the film crew.

Stabler and Krevoy claimed in March that Red Granite’s principals Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland had funded the company “with monies that include proceeds from unlawful activities,” and that the money has been used to finance the “Dumb and Dumber” sequel and “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
Red Granite had asserted that the claim was “false, malicious and baseless” with no facts to back it up.
In a filing Wednesday, attorneys for Krevoy and Stabler made request for dismissal “with prejudice” — meaning that the racketeering claim cannot be revived. The document makes no mention of a settlement, however.
Red Granite had filed a suit against Krevoy and Stabler last year, seeking a declaration that the duo — producers on the 1994 original “Dumb and Dumber”– had no claim on the sequel, “Dumb and Dumber To.”
Krevoy and Stabler then filed a counterclaim, »

The yearlong Dumb And Dumber To legal battle between Red Granite Pictures and producers Steve Stabler and Brad Krevoy is over. The producers today requested their racketeering allegations against the financiers be dismissed. This filing (read it here) means, I’ve learned, that the two sides have reached a confidential settlement to the lawsuit that Red Granite launched last July 15 to get the franchise’s original producers off the sequel. Rgp said at the time that Stabler and Krevoy had no right to be a part of the Universal-distributed follow-up to the 1994 hit. No right translated into no credits or fees […] »
Six months ago, I compiled a list of movies to watch before going to the movies in 2014. It was a homework assignment for you all to become familiar with the old movies that were remade for this year, whether direct originals or early versions of the same stories retold. That was just the first part, covering only the new releases from January to June. As promised, here is part two. Looking over the second half of the year, one thing is apparent: there are fewer remakes. There are a lot of sequels, of all sizes, and I’ve avoided including the previous installments of series like Night at the Museum, Hot Tub Time Machine, The Trip, The Hobbit, Horrible Bosses, Madagascar, Dumb and Dumber, The Hunger Games, Paranormal Activity, Dolphin Tale, Cabin Fever, The Expendables, Sin City, Planes, Planet of the Apes and The Purge. Those are all givens. I also didn’t include the TV series »

Twenty years after its release, “Dumb and Dumber” will finally see its sequel open in theaters. Harry and Lloyd will re-team for an unexpected sequel and the return of Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey in the starring roles. The sequel film will be released during the holiday season in 2014 and will surely see some healthy competition at the box office. The “Dumb and Dumber” franchise has seen some highs and lows over the last two decades since the first film was released. A prequel film titled “Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd” was released in 2003 to very little fanfare and critical response. An animated series from Hanna-Barbera [ Read More ]

The first trailer for Dumb and Dumber To hit the Internet this week, and in an unusual move, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels hit the talk show circuit to promote it. It's been a long time since either the Farrelly Brothers or Carrey made a great movie, but hopefully going back to something that made us love them to begin with will revitalize them.

Game of Thrones arguably concluded season 4 with its strongest finale yet, which is what showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss promised last week. In fact, the duo are so proud of this hour, it’s the only episode this season that they are submitting for Emmy consideration in the writing category. Below, the showrunners talk about a few of the finale’s twists and turns, with more to come tomorrow.
Entertainment Weekly: Let’s talk The Hound fighting Brienne. What inspired that clash?
David Benioff: It felt right to us, these two pairings: The Hound and Arya; Brienne and Pod. »

With a potential comeback on the cards for Jim Carrey, Rob looks through the hidden gems of his career.
Alrighty then. To get straight to the point – Jim Carrey’s career hasn’t been up to much lately has it? Certainly as leading man, at least. His last big-hitter was 2009’s A Christmas Carol, while his most recent leading role was 2011’s Mr Popper’s Penguins.
His latest performance outside of cameos was an interesting part in Kick Ass 2 though, a promising turn which left many audience-members wanting more from his character. With the trailer dropping recently for Dumb And Dumber To as well, the hints of a comeback for the iconic performer have continued to grow.
There’s been more positivity towards Dumb And Dumber To in comments than we might have expected (although this welcoming response was far from unanimous), which is undeniably a positive sign for the fledgling star. »
The Flickering Myth writing and editorial team give their thoughts on the trailer for Dumb and Dumber To….
It may be 20 years after the original, but Harry and Lloyd are back for Dumb and Dumber To, the trailer for which was released yesterday.
But what did our writing team think?
Ozzy Armstrong: I might be one of the few people born in the mid 80’s who didn’t enjoy the first film so a sequel seems completely redundant to me. Besides not liking the first Dumb and Dumber, I’m not a massive a fan of Jim Carrey either – so that probably doesn’t help.
As far as the trailer itself goes, I’m assuming that all of the “funny bits” were on show. This only makes me think that the end result will most likely be a big steaming unfunny turd of a picture. In short, I really couldn’t care less. »
