Bill Hader lists the 200 movies every comedy writer must see

29 August 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Bill Hader has begun to stretch himself as an actor since leaving Saturday Night Live last year. Sure, he has worked steadily in films like Superbad, Adventureland and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs amongst numerous other parts, but he has also begun taking lead roles in movies like The Skeleton Twins. He has begun earning more and more acclaim as an actor rather than the funny guy who did impressions on SNL. In the upcoming book "Poking a Dead Frog: Conversations With Today's Top »

Bill Hader’s List of 200 Essential Comedies Everyone Should See

28 August 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bill Hader has come a long way since his stint on Saturday Night Live, creating many popular characters and impersonations such as Stefon, Vincent Price and CNN’s Jack Cafferty. He is one of the highlights in such films as Adventureland, Knocked Up, Superbad and Pineapple Express, and so it is easy to see why author Mike Sacks interviewed him for his new book Poking A Dead Frog. In it, Hader talks about his career and he also lists 200 essential movies every comedy writer should see. Xo Jane recently published the list for those of us who haven’t had a chance to read the book yet. There are a ton of great recommendations and plenty I haven’t yet seen, but sadly my favourite comedy of all time isn’t mentioned. That would be Some Like It Hot. Still, it really is a great list with a mix of old and new. »

18 August 2014 4:39 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Just as we teased last week, James Franco and Seth Rogen unveiled a TV special on MTV that acts as a bit of viral promotion for The Interview, the comedy hitting theaters on Christmas Day this winter.

But then the CIA recruits them for a special operation to assassinate Kim Jong-un. Now you can watch the full MTV special introducing us to Skylark and Rapoport as they conduct a "very special Vma special" speaking with Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea and Jason Derulo. Watch it below!

Hear Michael Cera’s debut album “True That”

15 August 2014 3:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yep, you read that right. Michael Cera has released his debut album True That under the radar on Bandcamp, which is yours to own for only $7.

The Juno actor released it over the weekend, so the fact that it’s taken nearly a week to surface in the public eye shows just how little the man himself wanted to promote it.

True That features 18 low-fi tracks recorded in his own home. You can download the album in MP3 and Flac or listen at will using the player below. It’s very… well, it’s very Michael Cera let’s just say that.

It’s certainly more Nick & Nora than Scott Pilgrim.

It looks like he at least has one fan, his Superbad co-star Jonah Hill

There's something about this album’s existence that you want to make fun of so badly but after listening to it, we just can't. It's lo-fi, folky, and kind of amazing. Picture being inside on a rainy day, reupholstering thrift store furniture, while Arrested Development plays on Netflix in the background. That's what true that is like.

The Interview Gets a New Release Date; Now a Holiday Movie

7 August 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There’s good news and bad news.  The bad news is that The Interview is no longer opening on October 10th and that it has been pushed back by about ten weeks.  The good news it that it’s now opening on December 25th.  While it may be a bit harder (or easier, depending on your family’s holiday schedule) for you to catch the movie on that date (or wait the extra two months), this is still a good thing.  It means Sony’s confidence in the Seth Rogen and James Franco-starring movie is extremely high. And I’m not surprised.  Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg have an amazing track record with films like This is the End, Pineapple Express and Superbad.  Even The Green Hornet wasn’t all that bad.  Even better, they directed it this new film as well (the incredibly funny This is the End »

Why Hollywood Shouldn’t Give Up on the Romantic Comedy

5 August 2014 3:54 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In summers past, Hollywood used to give audiences a break from all the action-packed sequels targeted to teenage boys. Usually, that came in the form of counterprogramming known as the romantic comedy. For most of the late ’90s, Julia Roberts carried the genre: she opened 1997’s “My Best Friend’s Wedding,” which grossed nearly $300 million worldwide, against the disastrous “Batman and Robin.” She was also the star of such summertime hits as 1999’s “Notting Hill” ($364 million worldwide), “Runaway Bride” ($309 million) and 2001’s “America’s Sweethearts” ($138 million), which marked the end of her reign as the queen of romantic comedies.

One of the reasons that the summer of 2014 has been so catastrophic, with box office grosses down 18 percent, is the glut of indistinguishable product. Every movie, from “Transformers 4” to “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” feels like a photocopy of something that came before it. But the biggest profit margins aren’t »

Spotlight on the Stars: Emma Stone

23 July 2014 9:39 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at a younger A-lister, though one who’s been continually increasing her profile for a number of years now. It’s Emma Stone, one of Hollywood’s brightest young stars. She’s basically been on a rocket to the top, with no signs of slowing down. Stone not only has the goods as an actress, she’s got the charisma and personality to match. That’s the kind of combination that allows a star to go far. She’s an A-lister through and through, but one still very much on the upswing of her career. She’s still got plenty more to do, including I suspect…win an Oscar. Stone is an actress who can shine in just about any role. She got her start with a clever supporting performance in Superbad, the type of performance she’d »

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo Marry in Mexico

21 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo's Mexico wedding was so Hollywood.

People's Sexiest Man Alive is a married man! Adam Levine, 35, and Behati Prinsloo, 25, exchanged their vows at Flora Farms in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on Saturday, July 20, and it was a Superbad ceremony.

Et confirms that two-time Oscar nominee Jonah Hill officiated the wedding, but he wasn't the only celebrity to participate in the festivities. Fleetwood Mac frontwoman Stevie Nicks performed with Levine her and Don Henley's 1981 hit Leather and Lace.

According to Us Weekly, the bride wore a Marchesa gown as the couple said their "I dos" in front of nearly 300 guests-- including Jason Segel, Robert Downey Jr. and Victoria's Secret models Erin Heatherton and Candice Swanepoel.

E! News adds that "aside from [model] Coco Rocha, the majority of the bridesmaids were Victoria's Secret models and they wore white dresses. Meanwhile, the groomsmen sported black Hawaiian print shirts and black trousers."

Sex, Drugs, Shock and Lol: A Quick and Dirty History of the Raunch-Com

A glob of stray semen is slathered on as impromptu hair gel. A high school flutist describes all the graphic details of her "one time at band camp." A slobbering frat boy climbs a ladder for a close look at disrobing co-eds — a glimpse so revelatory that he plummets backward without batting an eye. Raunch-comedy history is littered with off-color climaxes, and the genre hasn't blown its load quite yet.

Emma Stone Says The Ghost of Her Grandfather Haunts Her -- See What He Leaves For Her!

17 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Emma Stone believes in the supernatural! The "Amazing Spider-Man" star stopped by the "Late Show" on Wednesday, to chat with David Letterman about her personal experience with ghosts. Check out the video above to see why Emma believes that her grandfather haunts her! Apparently, Stone's grandfather leaves her little signs that he's still around -- and she's convinced that it has to be him. "It's him," she exclaimed. "It's absolutely him." The "Superbad" red-headed beauty says her grandad leaves her quarters, because he always had a strange fascination with pocket change. "This is your late grandfather, and you find a quarter, 'Oh, I bet that's from granddad?,'" Letterman tried to clarify. "Yes," Stone explained. "Who I never met! It's exactly like that. It's that. It's such a long story that you'd have to go to commercial five times and roll to a clip and then come back and I'd still be telling the story. »

AMC's 'Preacher' Gets an Iconic Willie Nelson Theme Song

15 July 2014 3:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After teasing his outlining process last week, Preacher co-creator Seth Rogen released a new photo from his cork board, which includes a song that will be familiar to fans of Garth Ennis' original comic book.

Writing day: pic.twitter.com/qR5VVb7NMK

Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) July 15, 2014

In the first issue of Preacher, Jesse Custer sings the Willie Nelson song "Time of the Preacher Man," which was first released on the singer's 1975 album Redheaded Stranger.

Last week's photo revealed that Genesis, the supernatural deity who possesses Texas preacher Jesse Custer, will be seen right away in the teaser. In the comic, Genesis takes hold of Custer during one of his sermons, which set him on a journey to literally find God, who has abandoned his post in Heaven. Jesse is joined on this journey by his ex-girlfriend and an unorthodox vampire, as they are hunted by the Saint of Killers. »

No 'Mockingjay' or 'Jurassic World' top Comic-Con 2014 schedule surprises

14 July 2014 2:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Comic-Con has become a strange bird to Hollywood studios.  Bringing talent and previewing footage can give tremendous hype and word of mouth to eventual blockbusters ("Django Unchained," "Gravity," "Iron Man") or it can end up providing false hope for genre films hope will be smash hits ("Cowboys and Aliens," "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World").  That means it can be an expensive endeavor if things don't go well and, moreover, you might not realize that until six months later on your opening weekend. 2013 had few outright failures though besides "I, Frankenstein" and the under-performing box office of Edgar Wright's "The World's End." Outside of that? It might have been the most successful Comic-Con on the movie side ever (granted, the embarrassingly delayed "Seventh Son" won't hit theaters until Feb. 2015). This year's run of movie panels on Thursday, Friday and Saturday have some impressive selections from Daniel Radcliffe's first appearance »
