New ‘Dinner For Schmucks’ Trailer Has Carell Lay Eggs In Galifianakis’s Brain

Thursday, June 3 by

A still from Kirk Douglas's soon-to-be-released sex tape. The newest trailer for the Paul Rudd/Steve Carell buddy pic Dinner For Schmucks gives us a much better look at the schmuckly antics the film serves up. Here you get a glimpse of car accidents, vulture kissing, muscle-pulling, Satan costumes, a woman with the piercing glare of Udo Kier, creepy puppets, and mind bullets. It's like a glimpse inside the mind of Gary Busey. Needs wolves though. Wrap your eyes around the new trailer after the jump…

10 Most Baffling Movie Franchises

Thursday, June 3 by

In Hollywood, it usually makes sense to make sequel after sequel. Whether a series is good or bad, there’s some fan base who’ll keep coming back and the studios will make greater dough. There are just a few that make so little sense, I can’t believe they even tried to do more than one. As summer sequel season begins, we look at the 10 most baffling franchises in Hollywood history.BASIC INSTINCTThe only reason there’s even one sequel to this movie is that the studio decided it would be cheaper to make a whole movie than settle a lawsuit with Sharon Stone. So now Basic Instinct is a franchise, with a sequel that made less than Larry the Cable Guy’s first movie. I'm wondering who crunched the numbers and came to the conclusion that making an entire production would be more economical than settling a lawsuit.

Is it a) early concept art of Chris Hemsworth as Marvel's Thor, b) Will Ferrell dressed as Viggo the Carpathian, or c) Dog the Bounty Hunter accentuating his wardrobe with peacocking flair after reading "The Game?" Answer below.It's Thor, you guys. (Collider)More unofficially official images of Thor after the jump…

Tom Selleck Confirms ‘Three Men and an Unnecessary Sequel’ Rumors

Thursday, June 3 by

Why are these dudes still living together? Actor Tom Selleck confirmed that Disney is attempting to move forward on a third installment in the Three Men series. For those of you born after 1992, this refers to a popular 80's movie (Three Men and a Baby) and its disappointing, midget-porn sequel (Three Men and a Little Lady) co-starring Selleck, Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson. Make your own Steve Guttenberg joke, cause I like the guy. "It is true that Disney checked my availability," Selleck told the site. "And I know they checked Ted's and Steve's, and then had a script written, I think tentatively called 'Three Men and a Bride,' which kind of says it all [about the story]." I'm trying really hard not to be negative, but the "baby" from the film is now in her mid twenties, and no one besides my friend Jon wants to see a girl in her 20's "accidentally" pee on Ted Danson. I'm not even sure Netflix can legally send something like that through the mail.  While we're at it, why not just make Adventures in Babysitting: The Next Generation, Good Evening Vietnam, or Mannequin: The Revenge.* (ComingSoon)*These are all real pitches. I demand an executive producer credit and 5% of both the domestic and international box-office.

Will Jennifer Aniston ‘Scream’ for Cox?

Wednesday, June 2 by

Aniston Sucks Cox…GET IT!?!The Internet rumor mill is working overtime tonight, speculating that Jennifer Aniston will be joining her former "Friends" co-star, Courtney Cox, in the upcoming horror sequel, Scream 4.According to Star Magazine, which is one step up from reading the scribblings on a bathroom wall, Aniston's character will die early on. This follows in the tradition of the previous Scream films which have all killed off a big-name star within the first few minutes.If the rumors prove true, it will not be the first stab at the horror genre for either actress. Cox has been a mainstay of the Scream franchise since its inception, and Aniston has been terrifying audiences for years with films such as The Break-Up and He's Just Not That Into You.

‘ThunderCats’ Claws Its Way Back to Television

Wednesday, June 2 by

I remember why this was so popular!Twenty years after its cancellation, "ThunderCats" is poised to return to the small screen. A re-imaged "anime-inspired" version of the classic 80's cartoon will begin airing on Cartoon Network in 2011. The Cats join a growing list of retro characters headed to the CN lineup, including Batman, Scooby-Doo and The Looney Tunes. While CN is hopeful that the entire cast will return, the beloved character of Snarf may end up as the lone holdout. The annoying, overweight feline is currently in negotiations to join Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg on "The View," which would all but rule out his participation in the relaunch. (Variety) Watch two minutes of Snarf repeatedly saying "Snarf" after the Snarf.

Charles Grodin Might Return to ‘Midnight Run’ Connecticut-Based Acting

Wednesday, June 2 by

Beethoven's 2nd robbed us of Charles Grodin, our nation's most cantankerous export back in 1994. A man can only abide a St. Bernard ruining his turkey dinner so many times before he decides to walk away from a thriving Hollywood career, and Grodin had reached his breaking point. Welp, I've got good news for all you Grodinheads out there. The man is open to acting again and he seems more curmudgeonly than ever."I’ve been led to believe by someone I won’t name that they will ask me and I will consider it,” says Grodin in regards to the planned Midnight Run sequel. Though he does have his conditions. “I just turned down the new Muppet movie… Jim Henson was dear to me but I’m not flying 6000 miles to Los Angeles to work one day." Well, you could also take in a Lakers game, B.A. Baracus. Just sayin'. It's reported that he won't take a role if it interferes with him being at his Connecticut home by nightfall. This reinforces my theory: Charles Grodin is a werewolf. I'm 17% certain of this. (Deadline)

Hey, Jeff Zucker. YOU’RE FIRED! Like On ‘The Apprentice’

Wednesday, June 2 by

In news that is sure to make Conan O'Brien's Irish eyes smile, Jeff Zucker is being removed from his position as President of NBC Television Group. General Electric has put together an exit deal that will send Zucker packing with a golden parachute in the $30 to $40 million range. Please send all sympathy cards to: Jeff Zucker Don't Send This Guy Any Cards Avenue Dude's Plenty Rich, NY 80085 $30 million seems kinda exorbitant for a guy who steered the number one network into last place and forced the company into the arms of a competitor. Heck, I didn't get squat when I was let go from the deli for that bologna joke fiasco. Sucks too because I had plans for that apron. (NY Post)

What Chris Evans Could Possibly Maybe Look Like as ‘Captain America’

Wednesday, June 2 by

AICN snagged some very official looking concept images of what Chris Evans could maybe possibly look like as Captain America. Marvel has not yet confirmed their authenticity, so basically they could be you or me, probably you, jerking around on the computer in a basement, surrounded by American flags and Nazi scalps. In which case, I commend you. That's an impressive collection of Nazi scalps.More unofficially official images of Captain America after the jump.

‘Get Him To The Greek’ Actress Zoe Salmon

Wednesday, June 2 by

Zoe Salmon was the host of the children's television show "Blue Peter." Shortly after her debut, she famously said, "I'd try anything once," which started a trend in her being asked to do dangerous or embarrassing things including wing-walking on top of an antique biplane. An antique biplane? What kind of dares are these?!A word from Zoe: "I'd try anything once."Oh yeah? Would you wing-walk on top of an antique biplane? Damnit, why does the mind go straight to that?More pics of Zoe trying getting her picture taken after the jump.

First Yucky Image from ‘The Walking Dead’

Wednesday, June 2 by

We have the first image of a whacked-out "Walker" from AMC's upcoming series "The Walking Dead." The six-episode first season is being written, directed, and produced by Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Mist)."The Walking Dead" follows a group of survivors trying to find a safe place for their brains after a zombie apocalypse totally puts the kibosh on lazy Sunday afternoons. Rick Grimes is the main character and Sheriff leading humans in the opposite direction of the undead in this tale adapted from the Robert Kirkman graphic novel. If this series isn't awesome, I'll eat my own shoe. Either way the jokes on you because my shoes are made of thinly sliced pastrami. (Collider)

Paul Rudd Is An ‘Idiot’

Wednesday, June 2 by

Nice shades. Idiot. (Very sorry.)We now have full license to refer to Paul Rudd as an idiot (though I am a big fan and hate doing so). The idiot (very sorry) is reteaming with Jesse Peretz for My Idiot Brother, a comedy where the dumbass (love your work) moves in with his three sisters and disrupts their lives.Shooting is slated to begin in July once the sisters and mother have been cast. This is the second collaboration between Peretz and Tardface (you're doing a fantastic job), having previously worked together on The Chateau. Rudd can be seen next in Dinner For Schmucks opposite a dweeby Steve Carrell (again, no hard feelings). (THR)

‘Crow’ Rises Again For Reboot

Wednesday, June 2 by

A series reboot of The Crow is said to be moving forward very aggressively. Not as aggressively as the high school bullies who will pummel the students the film inspires to wear pancake makeup, but aggressively nonetheless. Producer Edward Pressman was talking up the project, saying the script is terrific and they've got an offer out to a major actor. If all goes well, the reboot could be done this year.Director Stephen Norrington (Blade, League Of Extraordinary Gentleman) has switched up the visual look from its predecessor and made the Crow itself more of a character in this version. "It's got a personality and a character," says Pressman. I don't know about you but I'm really hoping it wears a backwards ball-cap, sunglasses, rides a skateboard, and speaks in rhyme. You snicker at that suggestion now, but you wait and see. Just you wait. (MTV)
