14 cartoon movie spinoffs you forgot existed: The good, the bad and the just plain weird

27 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Free Willy vs cyborgs? The Mighty Ducks from outer space? The path to bringing a beloved film to the small screen isn't always a smooth one, as these oddities demonstrate.

How many of these madcap cartoon series do you remember?

Check out this amazing concept art for the abandoned Jurassic Park animation

1. Back to the Future

Back to the Future is generally considered a perfect movie trilogy, so did we really need the further adventures of Doc Brown and his family in cartoon form? Christopher Lloyd actually appeared in this series in live-action interstitials, but the animated Doc was voiced by Dan 'Homer Simpson' Castellaneta.

2. Mighty Ducks

Remember those films about the cute outcast kids who Emilio Estevez coaches into champion hockey players? How much better would it have been if they were actual ducks? Alien ducks? It made sense to someone.

3. The Real Ghostbusters

The gem in the cartoon adaptation crown, »

Jim Carrey and Hugh Jackman Get in Hilarious Impersonation War

21 August 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Three days ago, Hugh Jackman decided to share his impersonation of Jim Carrey's The Mask in an Instagram video that quickly went viral. The star of that 1994 classic has now responded, sparking one very hilarious social media war. Yes, as you will see in the photo below, Jim Carrey is The Wolverine, and he is threatening his impersonation opponent with some deadly cutlery.

It's The Wolverine Vs. The Mask in what will surely be remembered as a showdown for the ages (well, in actuality you'll probably forget about it before you get home from work tonight). They both wear yellow costumes, they are both impervious to injury, and they're both flamboyant and loud superheroes! And they obviously like taking the piss out of one another, using the world as their platform. Though, this is more on the funny side. Don't expect this jovial beef to break out in the »

21 August 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

By now everyone knows that cutest dad ever Hugh Jackman loves Dubsmash and Instagram. Remember that Katy Perry "Teenage Dream" lip sync video?

Hugh Jackman and Jim Carrey impersonate each other, finally, and it's brilliant

21 August 2015 4:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hugh Jackman impersonating The Mask, Jim Carrey impersonating The Wolverine: It's finally happened.

Presumably the product of some less-than-hectic schedules and a few too many coffees, the two Hollywood A-listers have recreated each other's most famous roles.

#JimCarrey mate trying my best to do justice! Clearly, I should stay in my own lane.

A video posted by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on Aug 17, 2015 at 8:12pm Pdt

It started off with Jackman doing his best "Smokin'" as part of a Dubsmash game he was playing.

Here, in case you were wondering, is what the real article looks like:

Both big deals on both Twitter and Instagram, it's no surprise that Carrey saw Jackman's attempt - but what was a surprise was his impeccable response:

Nice move @RealHughJackman Now watch me make a meal out of your biggest role. ;^> pic.twitter.com/GUfHB2RR4L

See Hugh Jackman and Jim Carrey's Hilarious Impersonations of Each Other's Characters

21 August 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Sometimes, celebrities can share too much on social media. Sometimes, they share just the right amount. Hugh Jackman and Jim Carrey fell into the latter camp this week with a random, yet completely hilarious, attempt at impersonating two of each other's most beloved characters.

The shenanigans started a few days ago when Jackman uploaded a Dubsmash video of himself uttering Carrey's famous "Smokin'!" line from "The Mask," nailing the comedian's rubbery facial expression with wide eyes, raised eyebrows, and a devilish grin. Jackman's post got plenty of love from fans, but it was Carrey's response the following day that made things truly amazing.

#JimCarrey mate trying my best to do justice! Clearly, I should stay in my own lane.

Hugh Jackman and Jim Carrey Spoof Each Other's Movies, and the Results Are Hilarious

20 August 2015 12:10 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

A video posted by Hugh Jackman (@thehughjackman) on Aug 17, 2015 at 8:12pm Pdt Hugh Jackman started a hilarious feud with Jim Carrey this week without even knowing it. The actor took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a funny Dubsmash video of himself impersonating Jim's character in 1994's The Mask. "#JimCarrey mate trying my best to do justice! Clearly, I should stay in my own lane," Hugh captioned the clip. Jim then decided to have a little fun of his own and took to Twitter on Wednesday to share a photo of himself spoofing Hugh's most famous character: Wolverine. Jim wrote, "Nice move @RealHughJackman Now watch me make a meal out of your biggest role," and in the photo, he uses kitchen utensils as claws, his hair spiked on either side. Your move, Hugh . . . Nice move @RealHughJackman Now watch me make a meal out of your biggest role. ;^> pic.twitter. »

The Great British Bake Off: 12 things that look just like Paul's bread lion

19 August 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Well, that was totally roarsome. It was Bread Week in the Great British Bake Off tent and the showstopper round - in which the 10 remaining hopefuls had five hours to whip up a 3D bread sculpture - produced some spectacular bakes. There was the Brighton Royal Pavilion, a bicycle, a frock, a snake, a bunch of flowers and a Tracey Emin-esque unmade bed.

But best by far was the lion made out of bread. Baked by Welsh prison governor Paul Jagger - himself something of a lookalike for judge Paul Hollywood - the 'King Of The Jungle' creation left Hollywood totally gobsmacked.

"That's one of the best things I've seen on bread, ever," murmured the notoriously hard-to-please judge. "It's exceptional."

Here's 12 things the majestic bready behemoth reminded us of...

Cameron Diaz Almost Starred In The Mortal Kombat Movie

18 August 2015 9:06 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In 1995, Mortal Kombat hit number one at the box office and became one of the first financially successful movies based on a video game (before that were the likes of Double Dragon and Super Mario Bros.). As with most movies, it endured many changes on the journey from stage to screen, and one character in particular was almost played by a young up and comer named Cameron Diaz. To mark the 20th anniversary of Mortal Kombat, The Hollywood Reporter talked to many of the behind the scenes players and put together an oral history, a kind of from-their-mouths retrospective about the trials and tribulations of the production. When the subject of putting together the cast came up, producer Lauri Apelian revealed this: We originally had Cameron Diaz cast as Sonya Blade. We were at New Line when The Mask was in postproduction, and Cameron Diaz was not a household name. »

Film Review: ‘Absolutely Anything’

11 August 2015 7:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Relatively confident that he will fail but curious to see what might come of the experiment, an alien council endows a perfectly average human with the power to do whatever he pleases in “Absolutely Anything.” Come to think of it, that must have been roughly how the financiers felt when backing Monty Python legend Terry Jones’ latest disappointment, a clunky sci-fi satire set to bomb abroad before it reaches U.S. theaters: Though the pic’s backers can’t have been too shocked by the result, Jones’ potential to surprise, plus his ability to call in favors from friends (including vocal performances from all five surviving Pythons and deceased comedy god Robin Williams), must have seemed to justify the gamble — all for nothing.

Speaking of gods, Jones’ premise — which surely would’ve worked better in animation — is just the sort of which all-powerful deities would approve, be they of the »

11 August 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Variety is reporting that Showtime has picked up I’m Dying Up Here, a new hour-long TV project set in and around the 1970’s comedy scene, produced by comedy legend Jim Carrey (The Mask, Dumb and Dumber).

The project is set to be officially announced at this week’s Television Critics Association press tour, with the project based on the title novel by William Knoedelseder and is written by former stand-up Dave Flebotte. Carrey will serve as an executive producer.

Showtime boss David Nevins said on the show: “The 1970s L.A. comedy scene gave rise to some of the biggest and most influential performers of the last half-century… Who better than Jim Carrey and Dave Flebotte, »

Justin Timberlake Is a Lime in Ridiculous Tequila Commercial -- And Looks Just Like Jim Carrey's The Mask

4 May 2015 9:35 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

It's lime time! Justin Timberlake took his Cinco de Mayo celebration to a whole new (and super sour!) level with the release of his ad for Sauza 901 on Monday, May 4. In the 3-minute clip, Jessica Biel's husband dons a full-on martian green lime costume to portray Rick "Sour" Vane, a bathrobe-clad fruit with an illustrious party past. The singer, however, reminded Us Weekly of a certain '90s classic: The Mask, starring Jim Carrey as the crazy green-faced man. In the strange commercial, the once-popular drink ingredient [...] »

What was the best year in film history? HitFix readers continue the debate

1 May 2015 6:36 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

HitFix's recent spate of "Best Year in Film History" pieces inevitably spurred some furious debate among our readers, with some making compelling arguments for years not included in our pieces (2007 and 1968 were particularly popular choices) and others openly expressing their bewilderment at the inclusion of others (let's just say 2012 took a beating). In the interest of giving voice to your comments, below we've rounded up a few of the most thoughtful, passionate, surprising and occasionally incendiary responses to our pieces, including my own (I advocated for The Year of Our Lynch 2001, which is obviously the best). Here we go... Superstar commenter "A History of Matt," making an argument for 1968: The Graduate. Bullit. The Odd Couple. The Lion in Winter. Planet of the Apes. The Thomas Crown Affair. Funny Girl. Rosemary's Baby. And of course, 2001, A Space Odyssey. And that's only a taste of the greatness of that year. "Lothar the Flatulant, »

The Surprisingly Prolific Comic Book Actors

20 April 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).

Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned, »
