'Pitch Perfect 2' Green Bay Super Bowl Outtakes Video

2 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During NBC's pre-game coverage for Super Bowl Xlix, Pitch Perfect 2 director and star Elizabeth Banks showed up at the big game, bringing with her a new behind-the-scenes clip from her highly-anticipated sequel, which, surprisingly enough, does have a football connection. Green Bay Packers players Clay Matthews III, David Bakhtiari, Tj Lang, Josh Sitton, Don Barclay and Jordan Rodgers appear in the sequel as themselves, during an a cappella competition, as we catch glimpses of new footage along with the players themselves getting ready for their big scene.

Unfortunately, the sequel will not have an official Super Bowl commercial during the big game, but the first trailer was released back in November. It remains to be seen when we'll get our next glimpse of footage from Pitch Perfect 2, which brings back the Barden Bellas as they attempt to win an international a cappella competition that no American team has ever won before. »

MTV Movie Awards: Amy Schumer And Anna Kendrick Take Cups To A Filthy New Level

30 January 2015 7:55 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Amy Schumer is hosting this year.s MTV Movie Awards, and we can.t wait for her epic night of debauchery. She.s made a career out of her over-the-top inappropriate but hysterical sense of humor, and now she gets to do that during one of the more off-the-cuff award shows of the year. To preview all the shenanigans that are coming our way, the network has released a brief promotional video featuring Schumer and an uncomfortable interaction with Anna Kendrick. Kendrick is probably sick and tired of hearing people talk about "Cups," the song she covered with her Pitch Perfect co-stars. After breaking into the top 10 spots on Billboard.s Hot 100, everyone has listened to it on repeat and re-watched the adjoining music video countless times. But the 29-year-old has to endure it a little bit more, as Schumer steps in for a filthier rendition of the game. After »

29 January 2015 8:55 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

MTV released the first promo for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards featuring Anna Kendrick and show host Amy Schumer on Thursday.

Kendrick does her best to keep her cool, despite Schumer’s best efforts. In addition to violating Kendrick’s personal space over and over, Schumer asks her a series of nonsensical questions, like “Are you related to Kendrick Lamar? »

Amy Schumer Gets Overly Friendly with Anna Kendrick in MTV Movie Awards Promo (Video)

29 January 2015 2:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Amy Schumer is a little tone deaf when she meets Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick in a new promo for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards. Schumer, 33, is tackling hosting duties for the first time this year - which Kendrick suspects is because "Chelsea Handler said no."Though it's a cliché that everyone in Hollywood knows each other, film star Kendrick, 29, has to check her phone to place the star of Comedy Central's Inside Amy Schumer. From there, plenty of cringe-worthy familiarity on Schumer's part ensues.Warning: If you watch until the end, the language gets a little Nsfw. The 2015 MTV »

2015 Sundance: What Brittany Snow Won't Do on a Red Carpet—Watch Now!

27 January 2015 2:08 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Brittany Snow loved jetting into Utah for Sundance. We caught up with the Pitch Perfect star to talk film festival fashion, beauty and more. She may be from Florida, but Snow doesn't mind some cold temperature dressing. Her best friend and stylist was responsible for her looks in Park City. "She packs for my because I have no idea what I'm doing," Snow said at the Lipton Sparkling Lounge, where she hosted a performance by American Authors. "She picks a lot of really cute plaids, flannels and hats, anything that's kind of layer-y because I get really cold." And that also means she gets to slip on more and more...hats!

Rebel Wilson: I'm "Just Fat" and "Bigger Girls Do Better in Comedy"

27 January 2015 7:35 AM, PST | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Rebel Wilson is staying true to her name. The one-of-a-kind Australian actress opened up in a new interview with Australia's Daily Life, and touched on her body image, her flourishing career, and why she'll "never" be one of the "twig bitches" her Pitch Perfect character Fat Amy fought against. Appearing in the upcoming Pitch Perfect 2, Wilson, 28, told the Daily Life that she is comfortable in her own skin, and recognized that she doesn't look like many of Hollywood's biggest (yet skinniest) stars.

Rebel Wilson Thinks 'Bigger Girls Do Better In Comedy'

27 January 2015 5:51 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Rebel Wilson credits her weight with making her funnier.

"Bigger girls do better in comedy. I don't know why. Maybe because people find it easier to laugh," the 28-year-old Aussie actress told Australia's Daily Life. "It's very hard to laugh at someone who's very attractive, I think. And normally those people don't have a great personality anyway."

One of Wilson's more recognizable roles is as Fat Amy in Pitch Perfect, and she admits that like her character, she owns her size. "I took something that was seen as a disadvantage -- no one thinks, if you're fat, that you're going to be an actress and everyone's going to love you -- and turned it into a positive."

Universal

Though confident in her own skin, the Bridesmaids actress does confess that she's pondered shrinking down to a "twig b**ch."

Saturday Night Live, Ep. 40.12: “Blake Shelton” lets the cast shine

25 January 2015 2:54 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Saturday Night Live, Season 40, Episode 12, “Blake Shelton

Aired January 24, 2015 at 11:30 pm Et on NBC (East coast version watched for review)

Host/Musical Guest: Country music gets a bad rap in a lot of ways outside of the bible belt. Part of this is justifiable: The dregs of country music are ripe ground for parody, what with their trucks and beer and love for the troops. “Bro country”, in particular, has as many staunch defenders as it does haters who want to watch it burn in a tire fire. These are the kinds of country songs that take those truck and beer aspects of the genre, crank it up to 10, and generally are performed either very drunk or without shirts on (for a good primer on this, just listen to Maddie & Tae’s excellent takedown “Girl In A Country Song”). For many, Blake Shelton is the grand poobah of bro country, »

We drink three rounds with the guys from 'Workaholics'

23 January 2015 6:32 AM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The title of their show is meant to be ironic—or at the least a portmanteau of "working" and "alcoholics"—but the three stars of Comedy Central's ­Workaholics show up late at night and sober, having just pulled a double shift. We're on the patio of Hollywood's Black bar, and the boys are relaxing after a grueling day of shooting a fifth season, which premiered Jan. 14. Adam DeVine, 31, Blake Anderson, 30, and Anders Holm, 33, play Adam, Blake, and Anders: three inveterate bros who have mastered the art of underachievement. But these comedians aren't slackers, pursuing individual careers with spots on »

Pitch Perfect 2 Gets "Down and Dirty," Matt Bomer's Magic Mike Xxl "Surprise"

20 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Brittany Snow can't reveal the songs she and her co-stars sing in Pitch Perfect 2, but she can give us a little tease of what's to come. "There are a lot of mashups in this one and there's this one performance in which we actually go insane and do all this great stuff," Snow told me at Elle's Women in TV celebration at the Sunset Tower Hotel. "I [use a] glow stick and there's hula-hooping. There's all sorts of madness. We got to get a little down and dirty." The Pitch Perfect sequel includes the returns of Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Anna Camp. Elizabeth Banks not only produces and appears as an a capella competition judge, but she also directs the much-anticipated »

DVD Review – Grace: The Possession (2014)

19 January 2015 4:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Grace: The Possession, 2014.

Directed by Jeff Chan.

Starring Alexia FastLin Shaye, Alan DaleBrett Dier, Joel David Moore and Alexis Knapp.

Synopsis:

A virginal Catholic teenager leaves her religious grandmother’s house to go to college and soon finds that drink and drugs are the least of her worries.

The trouble with making a possession film in the 21st century is that it has been done quite definitively already. The Exorcist pretty much covered all the bases back in 1973, and although there have been some entertaining knock-offs since then – Amityville II: The Possession basically re-told the same story but with the touch of Dino De Laurentiis adding some unintentional quasi-comic hilarity – and a bit of a re-invention with the likes of The Last Exorcism adding a found footage spin on things, you’ve really got to work hard these days to make a movie about possession stand out. »
