10 Things Seth Rogen Revealed About Pineapple Express

10 Things Seth Rogen Revealed About Pineapple Express
We're big fans of Pineapple Express, the modestly budgeted action comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, which grossed over $100 million in 2008. Conceived by Rogen, his writing partner Evan Goldberg and producer Judd Apatow, Pineapple Express is incredibly quotable and endlessly re-watchable, with a standout supporting turn by Danny McBride. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the stoner classic, Seth took to Twitter and unleashed some Wikipedia-smashing bits of trivia. Here we'll take a look at 10 things Seth Rogen revealed about Pineapple Express.

Crossing Guards

Many filmmakers draw on their real life experience to add authenticity to their productions, whether it's a twist of phrase from a specific region, certain wardrobe choices, the set decoration, or the difference between which weapons a character might use. As Seth explained in the first in his series of Tweets, "In Pineapple Express, me and my co-writer Evan had to roll all the

Movie Review – The Package (2018)

The Package, 2018.

Directed by Jake Szymanski.

Starring Daniel Doheny, Sadie Calvano, Geraldine Viswanathan, Luke Spencer Roberts, and Eduardo Franco.

Synopsis:

When a group of teenage friends go on a spring break camping trip, an unfortunate accident sets off a race against time to save their friend’s most prized possession.

Though Netflix’s Originals line-up is often (correctly) derided for serving as a dumping ground for uninspired genre fare a conventional studio wouldn’t touch, The Package deserves at least some credit for being decidedly more demented than your typical R-rated teen comedy.

From director Jake Szymanski (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates) and produced by both Ben Stiller and Workaholics stars Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck, this middling yet fitfully amusing romp further confirms the quartet’s obsession with genital mutilation humour.

Columbia Pictures opened David Gordon Green’s “Pineapple Express” in 3,072 theaters on August 6, 2008. Ten years later, the film remains one of the most classic stoner movies ever made. Seth Rogen, who co-wrote the comedy with Evan Goldberg and starred on screen opposite James Franco and Danny McBride, celebrated the film’s 10th anniversary by revealing a handful of amazing fun facts about making “Pineapple Express.”

Rogen kicked off his look back at “Pineapple Express” with the revelation that it was him and Goldberg who rolled all out of the joints seen on screen during the film.

‘Never Goin’ Back’ Is A Female Buddy Comedy With More Balls Than Its Dude-Driven Counterparts [Review]

Writer-director Augustine Frizzell‘s wild comedy is what you’d get if A24‘s trio of sun-soaked tales of teenage rebellion – “Spring Breakers,” “The Bling Ring,” and “American Honey” – had an unprotected, coke-fueled hookup with “Superbad.” Anarchic and daring, “Never Goin’ Back” is a tale of adolescent female friendship that is somehow ballsier than your standard dude-driven buddy comedy.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg Production ‘Good Boys’ Accused of Using Blackface on Stand-In Actor

Is blackface makeup standard shooting procedure? That’s the question dogging “Good Boys,” the upcoming comedy directed by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky and produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Sources close to the production told TMZ a complaint was filed to the producers after a stand-in for 11-year-old actor Keith L. Williams appeared on set with makeup applied to darken his face.

TMZ acquired photos of the child actor in darkened face makeup, but sources close to the production company Good Universe told the outlet it’s “not uncommon for lighting purposes to match actors’ skin tones.” Both Williams and his stand-in are African-American. The makeup applied to the stand-in was reportedly used to match his lighter skin tone with Williams’ darker skin tone on camera. The stand-in’s father is “offended by the claims being made regarding his son.”

Seth Rogen Once Informed Tom Cruise About the Existence of Internet Porn, Says Judd Apatow (Video)
Tom Cruise became the topic of conversation during director Judd Apatow’s interview on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” — specifically the moment when the “Mission Impossible” star apparently discovered he could watch pornography on the internet.

Apatow recounted a time he met with Cruise in 2006 and brought along actor Seth Rogen — before he was a household name.

“We were shooting ‘Knocked Up’ in 2006 and I said to Seth Rogen, ‘I have a meeting with Tom Cruise you have to come with me,'” Apatow said. “And no one knew who Seth was, he was just a dude with me.”

Apatow told Colbert that the subjects of marijuana and pornography inevitably come up in any conversation with Rogen. When Rogen began discussing internet pornography with Cruise, informing the “Top Gun” star that it did in fact exist, the “Superbad” actor rendered Cruise dumbfounded, according to Apatow.

The trailer for Emma Stone and Jonah Hill’s Netflix series ‘Maniac’ will trip you out [Watch]
Well, this “Superbad” sequel looks weird. Oh, what? It’s not a sequel? Ok, but it’s still weird. Netflix dropped the first teaser for Emma Stone and Jonah Hill‘s upcoming limited series “Maniac” on Sunday, and it’s a color-coded trip.

The clip features Stone and Hill, reuniting for the first time since “Superbad,” sitting across from each other at table engaged in what can only be described as an intense staring contest while an unsettling voiceover muses about how the mind can be solved. An array of bright colors then flood the screen, giving off major “Legion” vibes. So yeah, not much info, but still curiosity-piqueing.
