Cast Of ‘Dodgeball’ Reunites For Charity Drive On Omaze

15 June 2017 4:28 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

In 2004, the movie Dodgeball instructed viewers how to dodge a wrench and dodge a ball, introduced them to ESPN8 (The Ocho), and delivered “A True Underdog Story.” 13 years later (where does the time go?) the cast of that comedy has reunited to raise funding for a good cause. Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and the rest of the Dodgeball principals have joined forces with Omaze for a charity drive that will deliver a boost to the Stiller Foundation.

As with other Omaze drives, backers can donate to the Dodgeball campaign in exchange for digital raffle tickets that represent chances to win incredible rewards. In this case, the grand prize is a trip to the gym, where a select group of winners will meet the Dodgeball actors and join them for a game between Average Joe’s and the formidable Globo Gym Purple Cobras. All money raised through the Omaze initiative will head to the Stiller Foundation, »

14 June 2017 4:41 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The short video sees Stiller back in character as megalomaniac gym manager White Goodman, while Taylor reprises her role as Kate Veatch, a lawyer who is constantly fighting off Goodman’s unwanted advances. »

Grab life by the ball by watching a Dodgeball reunion video with Ben Stiller...

It is hard to believe that it’s been 13 years since Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story grabbed life by the ball. But now your favourite sports movie cliché characters are back, including Ben Stiller as the gloriously stupid White Goodman. And they’re doing it for a good cause!

In the new video, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Christine Taylor, Justin Long, and more return to the spandex and outspoken intensity that comes with staring each other down and evading the stray wrench. Back in shape and ready to go, Stiller’s White offers audiences the chance to play dodgeball with a real winner like his Globo Gym team. Or you can be a loser and join Average Joe, with Vaughn, Stiller, and the rest.

You can watch the video to enjoy all the comedic tête-à-tête banter. »

Great Job, Internet!: The rival teams from Dodgeball reunite for charity in new video

14 June 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story has become a sports cult film of sorts—one of the best of the Frat Pack movies—telling the story of the scrappy dodgeball team at Average Joe’s gym, led by Peter La Fleur (Vince Vaughn), going against Ben Stiller’s White Goodman and the formidable Purple Cobras from his Globo Gym. The film features everyone from Rip Torn to Missi Pyle to Stephen Root in noteworthy roles, as well as sayings like, “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball,” fitness-obsessed White’s ineffective insults, and unhinged color commentary by Jason Bateman’s Pepper Brooks—all contributing to the 2004 movie’s considerable decade-plus legacy.

Now those memorable championship teams are facing off again, this time for charity. A new video by Dodgeball auteur Rawson Marshall Thurber shows Stiller as White Goodman offering viewers the chance to play on the ...

Dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge! Omaze does some great things for the world and raises million of dollars a year for charity. But, in the process, they also do some great thing for fandom. For their latest campaign, they've managed to reunite the cast of Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story after 13 years and, they are giving you the chance to play a game of dodgeball with them in New York City.

Ben Stiller is back as White Goodman, head of Globo Gym, in this latest Omaze campaign, which comes complete with a fantastic reunion video. It looks like White Goodman has once again found himself in peak physical shape, after losing to Average Joes at the end of Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and turning into a fat blob. "F****** Chuck Norris." Ben Still spoke a bit with Entertainment Weekly about what it was like stepping back into the role after so long. »

Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn Suit Up Again in Dodgeball Reunion Video

14 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Over the years, there have been dozens of sports movies pitting the lovable underdogs against the seemingly unbeatable elites — it’s a classic American story. But none were perhaps as big of a surprise hit as 2004’s Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story. Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, the film starred Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller as, respectively, the underdog owner of failing gym Average Joe’s and the elite fitness guru trying to push the facility out of business. Backed by a wide and deep cast that also featured Justin Long as a male cheerleader, Alan Tudyk as a 24-7 pirate cosplayer, »

’Cannonball Run’ Reboot: Warner Bros. Taps ‘Dodgeball’ Director for New Take on Hal Needham Films

13 June 2017 11:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Warner Bros. is gearing up for a “Cannonball Run” reboot, with “Dodgeball” director Rawson Thurber and “Reno 911” creators Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant in talks to direct and write, reports Deadline.

The project will relaunch the franchise begun by Hal Needham’s “The Cannonball Run” in 1981, a slapdash comedy starred Frank Sinatra, Burt Reynolds, Jackie Chan, Roger Moore, Dom DeLuise, Farrah Fawcett, and many other stars of the time. The Fox release was universally panned by critics, but was one of the highest-grossing movies of the year. Warner Bros. followed that up in 1984 with “Cannonball Run II,” and Orion released a third film, “Speed Zone,” in 1989. The franchise centers around a cross-country car race, inspired by a real race that took place throughout the 1970’s.

The Cannonball Run is getting a reboot

12 June 2017 10:08 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jun 13, 2017

Rawson Marshall Thurber is set to steer The Cannonball Run for Warner Bros...

We’ve seen three different Cannonball Run movies to date, although only the first two gained prominence. Furthermore, in the early 2000s there was Rat Race, something of a homage to the films (which in itself owe a debt to It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World). But now, Hollywood is gearing up for a full on reboot.

If you’ve never had the pleasure – and they’re a lot of pleasure – The Cannonball Run films involved lots of famous people in a barnstorming cross country car race, in a not very Fast & Furious way.

Warner Bros has been trying to get a new version of the film off the ground for a while, with names such as Guy Ritchie and Etan Cohen linked with directing in the past. But the man who’s »
