Here are a few of our favorites.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe, with its now de rigueur post-credits “hidden” scenes, has kept legions of viewers’ asses plopped firmly in their Fanta-stained seats well after the final credits start rolling. The latest MCU post-credits scene, following the conclusion of Guardians of the Galaxy, is too good to ruin here, but I’ll say two spoiler-free things about it: It fit in perfectly with the tone of the movie itself, and it will likely go over the heads of most people under age 30.

For any teenaged readers who thought Marvel was the progenitor of this post-credit-scene business, think again — it’s been going on for decades. Early on, though, it was a rare and unexpected thing that most people found out about only after someone said, “Did you stay until the very end??” Because there was no YouTube, people either had to pay to see the film again in theaters or wait until it came out on VHS to see the scene.

Some of the best post-credits sequences tease sequels (some of which never happened), put a little cherry on top of the material you just saw, or feature an outtake or off-script riffing (which happen more commonly during end credits these days). Some of our favorite post-credits scenes on this list are simply ones that make me reminisce on my childhood.

Which reminds me: YouTube Powers That Be, how can you NOT have a video sequence of Raul Julia’s M. Bison sticking his hand out of the rubble after the credits of 1994′s Street Fighter?!?? That’s classic stuff!


Kill Bill (2003) – This quickie scene is an outtake of Uma Thurman’s Beatrix Kiddo ripping an eyeball out of a member of the Crazy 88 army, clearly delighting in it. It should get fans excited for the rumored upcoming release of both Kill Bill films combined.


Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) – This 45-second sequence is just as irreverent as the movie that preceded it; while it worked back then, it now serves as a reminder that the Ron Burgundy schtick is kinda played out after a decade. Raise your hand if you actually *loved* Anchorman 2. Thought so.


The Fast and the Furious (2001) – This scene shows Vin Diesel’s Dominic driving through Baja, having successfully escaped the cops in the states. It set the pace for a franchise continuity that’s 13 years and running. Fast and Furious films are awesome. More please.


Lethal Weapon 3 (1992) – Because this is footage of an actual building being demolished, I am pretty sure the filmmakers didn’t pay for it considering it’s a scene that few people would see, because people didn’t stay past the credits in 1992. My guess is the building was being blown to bits anyway, so they filmed it and had Mel Gibson and Danny Glover dubbed talking in character over the video. Pretty lazy, if you ask me.


Iron Man (2008) – Since the original Iron Man was the first movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and arguably still the best), its post-credits scene introducing Samuel L. Jackson as (black!) Nick Fury is still the most memorable, as it left nerdboys salivating for what MCU had to offer. With few exceptions, it hasn’t let us down.


Crank (2006) – Made when people were still funding Jason Statham-led films, Crank wasn’t very memorable in general. But its post-credits sequence — a 16-second recap of the film reimagined as a 16(ish)-bit video game — is cool mainly because it’s so unique.


Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) – An awesome film from the roota to the toota that aged remarkably well, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off kept viewers watching throughout the end credits roll, only for Ferris to tell everyone to shove off. If there’s an earlier post-credits scene that matters, I know nothing about it.


Masters of the Universe (1987) - Every little snot-nosed ’80s kid loved He-Man, and the live-action movie was extra-awesome. For little boys, that is. Everyone else hated it, which means Skeletor was never able to make good on his Ahnuld-esque “I’ll be back” post-credits promise.

Champ Kind made good on his threat to Wes Mantooth and did take his saintly mother, Dorothy, out for a nice seafood dinner before never calling her again. In addition to the nice dinner, they also engaged in wheelchair sex. Left heartbroken, Dorothy is suing Champ for damages of $5,000.

Champ is counter-suing for $100 (the price of the dinner).

The original Anchorman did just fine in the box office, but was nothing to write home about. However, it became a staple of pop culture through millions of people rewatching. Then quoting. And quoting some more. And they would never stop quoting Anchorman.

Which makes this an anomaly in the world of comedy. An anticipated sequel with a relatively slow burn. How would that track as far as box office goes?

Just fine apparently. Anchorman got $8 million its opening night last night, which puts it on pace for a $40-$45 million weekend. That should offset some costs. Then, with audiences knowing what they know, several million of them may just come back to see the film again in theaters. Then there will be more quoting.

The quoting will never stop. Maybe don’t wear a bra next time.

It’s really distilled but still funnier than the trailer for Anchorman 2.

Cast Your Vote For Either Zach Galifianakis Or Will Ferrell In ‘The Campaign’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/cast-your-vote-for-either-zach-galifianakis-or-will-ferrell-in-the-campaign/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/cast-your-vote-for-either-zach-galifianakis-or-will-ferrell-in-the-campaign/#comments Fri, 11 May 2012 18:25:45 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=248627 Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis: Two men, two funny voices.

The post Cast Your Vote For Either Zach Galifianakis Or Will Ferrell In ‘The Campaign’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The Campaign manages to take old characters and make them new again, with what will surely be funny results. Will Ferrell will be donning the George W. Bush suit (with a hint of Ricky Bobby) while Zach Galifianakis takes a lesser-known (but far more funny) character out for a spin: his timid alter-ego Seth Galifianakis.

Of course, the characters they’re playing will have names like Cal Brady and Marty Huggins, respectively, and they’ll be duking it out for a congressional seat in North Carolina.

The movie doesn’t look particularly “good,” but after some more melancholy fare like Everything Must Go, it’s nice to see Ferrell just get dumb. Points to the trailer guys for using The Black Keys, and points against them for using the hackneyed “Takin’ Care of Business,” leading me to believe that Homer Simpson may have had a hand in creating this trailer.

Will Ferrell’s ‘Anchorman 2′ Announcement And His Other Wacky Conan O’Brien Appearances http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/will-ferrells-anchorman-2-announcement-and-his-other-wacky-conan-obrien-appearances/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/will-ferrells-anchorman-2-announcement-and-his-other-wacky-conan-obrien-appearances/#comments Thu, 29 Mar 2012 20:09:26 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=247834 Oh man! He's just the nuttiest! GOULET!

The post Will Ferrell’s ‘Anchorman 2′ Announcement And His Other Wacky Conan O’Brien Appearances appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Last night, history was made. Will Ferrell, appearing as legendary newsman Ronald Burgundy, went on Conan to inform the world that despite years of claims to the contrary, an Anchorman sequel is in the works. Millions of people who hadn’t even realized that they were lacking an Anchorman sequel in their lives rejoiced.

While Ferrell could have disseminated this information through a number of outlets, Conan has proved to be his go-to venue for, well, just about everything. He must REALLY like Conan, considering he’s got a whole comedy website (Funny or Die) that could also handle these announcements, while reaching just as many people. I guess it’s the spectacle of being on semi-live televisions, as well as Conan’s willingness to let Ferrell do pretty much whatever he wants.

He’s a good sport that way.

While this might be the most newsworthy of Ferrell’s appearances on Conan, it’s far from the most outrageous. Here’s a collection of Ferrell’s weirdest and funniest appearances on Conan.

“Free Bird”

The last image from Conan’s ill-fated Tonight Show tenure is this live performance of Lynard Skynard’s ballad “Free Bird,” which served as a fairly moving goodbye, in as much as a talk show hosting change can be moving. While Ferrell took vocal duties in the character of some southern-fried rocker, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Beck, and Conan all took guitar duty while the rest of Conan’s band laid down rhythm.

It may have been during this video that casual fans learned that Conan is an absolute beast on guitar, and all fans, casual or not, were reminded that Ferrell doesn’t have a good singing voice.

Dog Obstacle Course

Here, Ferrell cracks on egg of knowledge on Conan fans, informing them that, during his downtime, he really, really, really enjoys training dogs for obstacle courses in shows.

To share his passion with the world, he brought on a few dogs and set up an obstacle course. Though it’s Will Ferrell, and we all know he’s joking, he comes across as genuine right until the moment he points out the tightrope on the course. That could be an issue.

And it is. It turns out that Will Ferrell is absolutely terrible at training dogs, as they just continue to mill about idly once they take the stage. Ferrell adopts his loud, frustrated persona, and a good time is had by all.

As Robert GOULET!

One of Ferrell’s most beloved characters is a caricature of lounge singer Robert Goulet. Will came onto Conan’s Tonight Show in character, constantly mistaking Conan for Johnny Carson, and his New York studio for Johnny’s Burbank one back in the day. Even on SNL, Goulet was one of Ferrell’s more absurd characters, but the new dimensions are shown when he gets the opportunity to improvise and riff with the always-game Conan and Co.

GOULET! LAVENDER!

Will Shaves Conan

After getting yanked from The Tonight Show while he was still forbidden from appearing on TV, Conan grew one of those beards you grow when you backpack through Nepal or when your girlfriend breaks up with you. However, when he finally got the ball rolling on TBS, it was a new beginning, and the beard had to go.

There was no question who would handle the duties. Will Ferrell appears on the show, ostensibly to talk about his new movie, but he quickly tells Conan to “shut the fuck up,” and gets the beard-trimming ball rolling.

Spoiler alert: Ferrell quits about halfway through, leaving Conan with an awesomely hilarious half-beard thing.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Hey! It’s Will Ferrell being outrageous again! This time he’s dressed as a damn Leprchaun. Oh, Will! You’re just outrageous!

It’s a little difficult to keep explaining why these appearances are funny, and describe what’s going on. Will Ferrell showed up at Conan’s show dressed as a leprechaun in a Speedo. It’s funny because people normally don’t do that.

Just watch the damn video.

6 Danny Trejo Characters We Would Cross The Street To Avoid http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/6-danny-trejo-characters-we-would-cross-the-street-to-avoid/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/6-danny-trejo-characters-we-would-cross-the-street-to-avoid/#comments Wed, 28 Mar 2012 16:26:35 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=247769 In case you didn't know, he portrays characters that are often quite tough.

In an effort to counteract all the Hunger Games talk that’s been plaguing the entertainment news sector over the past two weeks or so, we at Screen Junkies would like to take things in the other direction. That decision begged the question, “What (or who) is the opposite of Katniss Everdeen?” It took about fifteen seconds to arrive at the answer, which, of course, was “Danny Trejo.”

If there was an actual Hollywood Hunger Games, Danny Trejo would be such a heavy favorite to win that I don’t think bookies would even take bets. The guy is badass through and through. He’s become something of a fanboy icon in the past decade, but even before that, he was just known as the really tough Mexican guy that you were scared to even make eye contact with onscreen.

Bartender – From Dusk Till Dawn

Trejo makes for a very fitting face of the Mexican biker/trucker/vampire bar the Titty Twister. After giving the boot to Keitel and company for not being truckers nor bikers, he is one to listen to reason when Harvey presents him with his commercial drivers license. However, the reason doesn’t last long. Once the band plays, all hell breaks loose and the hulking Danny Trejo turns into super-hulking Danny Trejo, until he’s laid down by Clooney and Co. in one of the most delightfully random heel-turns in modern movies.

Bartender – Anchorman

He plays a no-nonsense bartender pretty damn well. Well enough that even his few lines in the film don’t only convey his badass nature, but show that he’s pretty enlightened in telling Ron that he’s gotta wake up to the gender equality movement that’s going on.

While the phrase “warrior poet” gets thrown around a lot these days, screw it: He’s a warrior poet.

Longshanks http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=Video&p=7428 In his audition for Anchorman, Steve Carell made the choice to play Brick Tamland like a giggling idiot. So much so that it looks like he's on the brink of passing out. Even with the degraded video quality, you can tell his face gets awfully purple.
