Apatow extended family members Paul Rudd and Dany McBride, along with Workaholic Anders Holm, will be joining Seth Rogen’s Sausage Party, in keeping with the film’s name. While this won’t come as a surprise to many, all three are funny dudes, so what’s not to like?

They will be joining the actors already signed on, including James Franco, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Edward Norton, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, and Kristen Wiig.

I snuck that last one in on ya. Kristen Wiig is a girl. But she is in the film.

At this point, we should offer the heads-up that Sausage Party is an animated film, and all the actors will be voicing foodstuffs, as best we know.

Huh. Ok. That explains the two-year lead time.

The film will be written by Rogen and his partner Evan Goldberg, and will be produced and funded by Megan Ellison, who does this sort of thing because she’s pretty awesome.

7 Reasons You Should Rewatch ‘This Is The End’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-reasons-you-should-rewatch-this-is-the-end/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-reasons-you-should-rewatch-this-is-the-end/#comments Fri, 06 Sep 2013 17:19:06 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=256824 My only friend, the end.

The post 7 Reasons You Should Rewatch ‘This Is The End’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
The end is nigh. Well, the end was nigh, then the end went away. But now it’s nigh again.

In case you didn’t pick up on that very clear message, This Is The End is coming back to theaters this weekend, and if you’ve seen it, be ready to get back in the theater again. (And if you haven’t seen it, please do so immediately so that you won’t find the title and subject matter of this article so alienating and distant.)

Having seen the movie, and thus been granted the benefit of hindsight, I assure you there are far more than seven reasons to see or re-see this film. I don’t address them all, not because I get off on withholding, but because there’s a pretty good chance that you’re reading this having not seen the movie. And considering this entire missive is an effort to get you to see the movie, let’s not reveal everything, no? It’s a high wire act, but if anyone is equal to the task, it’s you, dear reader.

7. The Soundtrack



Who wouldn’t want to revisit Cypress Hill, Psy, Backstreet Boys, Whitney Houston, Dr. Dre, and M.I.A.? A crazy person, that’s who. The movie essentially starts with a party then takes a macabre twist, but let’s focus on the party. These jams, except maybe for Whitney’s “I Will Always Love You” are party regulars. You could stand to check back in on them.

6. The Cameos (Except Michael Cera, Who Gets His Own Entry)



There are a lot, and it doesn’t really spoil anything to share who they are. Some stick around longer than others, but the list includes, but is not limited to: Michael Cera, Mintz-Plasse, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Martin Starr, Aziz Ansari, Kevin Hart, Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, and David Krumholtz.

5. The “Characters”



As you probably know, this film is brimming with that familiar Apatow clan, who play themselves. Whether or not they’re actually playing themselves in name only, or if they’re taking on affectations varies from person to person, but it’s a nice little subconscious game to figure out if the guy you’re staring at on the screen is really as hard/nice/goofy as the “character” seems.

4. The Fake Pineapple Express Sequel



Argh. It’s so frustrating when you want to talk about something hilarious but you don’t want to spoil it. It’s like buying someone an awesome Christmas (OR HANUKKAH) gift in July then having to sit on it. Seriously. Just everyone see the movie so we don’t have to dance around these issues, and we can really just…just open a dialog.

3. Marijuana Can Make Repeating The Same Activity Feel New Again



You know, if you are in a state with decriminalized pot or, failing that, medicinal marijuana and you happen to suffer from a treatable affliction. I don’t think it’s giving away a major plot point to say that Seth Rogen, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel, and Danny McBride partake a little bit in the film. Why should they get to have all the fun?

2. Really Dissect Their Idea Of Heaven



Yet again, I must spare the newbies the details, as it’s a pretty great bow on the story. It looks very stark, very white, and very comfortable, but the soundtrack might ruffle a few feathers. Like, everyone’s feathers. Everywhere on their body.

1. Michael Cera!!!!



To say he “plays against type” is an understatement. His turn pretty much takes the film up an entire level with a modicum of screen time. Imagine if you rewatched Wall Street and saw Zack Galifianakis make a brief appearance as Gordon Gekko’s attorney. You get the gist.

Though it was supposed to have ended last season, Danny McBride decided to take Eastbound & Down into extra innings. Here’s a look at what we can expect from Kenny Powers in the series’ final episodes. Machine guns, waterslides, really big sunglasses, strippers, and funeral-crashing (his own).

Kenny Powers and Eastbound & Down are back for thier third and final season this Sunday on HBO, which is great news! Not great news in the sense that the series is coming to a close, but great news in the sense that we’ll be able to enjoy the final chapter in the long battle for supremacy between tits and ass. Why the two can’t happily rule in unison I do not know. But perhaps this look at animated GIFs from the first two seasons will help us to understand just a little more.

The Eastbound & Down teaser just didn’t tease us well enough. Here we get our first substantial look at the mayhem that Kenny Powers unleashes on Florida. Jason Sudeikis plays his teammate and new best friend in such a douchey way that it’s cringe-worthy. In other words, it’s excellent.

Most important to note, however, is that it looks like Kenny might be in trouble with a Ruff Ryders-esque motorcycle gang. I wish DMX had a role this season.

The new season premieres February 19th on HBO. (Pop Candy)

Eastbound & Down returns for its third and final season Sunday, February 19th on HBO. Last time we saw Kenny Powers, he was south of the border, searching for his estranged dad and another shot at the majors. Those efforts put him back on the map, so to speak, and now he’s in Myrtle Beach pitching for the Mermen, which means Kenny Powers goes to Spring Break. Originally, the series was only planned to last one season, but I think we all can agree that Kenny at Spring Break is a story that needed to be told.

This season, Danny McBride is joined by Jason Sudeikis, Steve Little, Katy Mixon and Ike Barinholtz.

The post Will The Australian “Collar Bomb” Attack Delay The Release Of ’30 Minutes Or Less’? appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
A bizarre ransom attempt unfolding in Australia is eerily similar to the plot of the upcoming comedy, 30 Minutes or Less. Madeleine Pulver, a teenage member of one of Sydney’s wealthiest families, was allegedly strapped with a “collar bomb” that included a ransom note demanding cash from her father William, the CEO of an international software company. The plot of 30 Minutes or Less involves a similar attack in which a hapless pizza boy is strapped with a bomb and forced to rob a bank.

Thankful, the girl has been freed from the device and reunited with her parents, and an investigation is underway into who is responsible for the crime. But you can almost hear the producers of 30 Minutes or Less panicking. The fact that the bizarre incident happened just over a week before the film’s premiere could prove to be a major headache should anyone try to pin the incident’s inspiration on the film.

At this time there is no evidence to suggest that 30 Minutes or Less inspired the attack. In fact, the film was based on an actual collar-bomb attack that occurred in Pennsylvania back in 2003. If anything, the Pennsylvania incident would seem to be the more likely culprit. But the striking similarities between the incident in Sydney and the film’s plot could prove too worrisome for film studios that have long been known to error on the side of caution.

The Arnold Schwarzenegger film Collateral Damage and several other films were delayed for months following the September 11th attacks out of fear that their terrorist-heavy plots would offend moviegoers. Obviously, the incident in Sydney is nowhere near the scale of 9-11. But even so, it’s not hard to imagine the film being delayed should a controversy arise. And given the willingness of so many media figures to blame Hollywood for every ill our society faces, it’s probably only a matter of time.

Jason Sudeikis has found a new venue to use lewd terms in reference to vaginas. The Hall Pass and Horrible Bosses star will join the third and final season of HBO’s Eastbound & Down. Sudeikis will play Shane, a new friend to Danny McBride‘s egotistical former baseball star and father-to-be.

The comedy series has turned out some great comedy performances from Will Ferrell, Craig Robinson, Don Johnson, Adam Scott, Deep Roy, and Matthew McConaughey. I’m hoping to see Sudeiki break away from his current stints as Horndog Bestfriend Character #1, and this could be the perfect chance to do that. Also it’s going to be hilarious to see his square off with Stevie Janowski for Kenny’s affections. (Variety)

Monkeys Attack In ’30 Minutes Or Less’ Red-Band

Sony has dropped the brand spankin’ new red-band trailer for 30 Minutes or Less. The film stars Jesse Eisenberg as a pizza delivery boy who’s forced to rob a bank by two hick madmen. If he doesn’t perform the task in the time allotted, a bomb strapped to his chest will blow him into the next world (as evidenced by the teddy bear in the trailer). Danny McBride and Nick Swardson play the criminal “masterminds,” while Aziz Ansari plays the best friend with stellar manners when it comes to receiving sexual favors. The film is directed by Ruben Fleischer, the man behind the inventive zombie action-comedy Zombieland.

30 Minutes or Less hits theaters August 12, 2012.

Way less than 30 minutes, actually. We’re talking seconds.

Below are two new posters to go along with the recently released trailer for 30 Minutes Or Less, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari. It’s based on a true story, but a crazy true story, not one of those bullshit, heartwarming true stories you see advertised every now and again. (I’m looking at you, tail-less dolphin movie.) Eisenberg plays a pizza guy assaulted by criminals played by Nick Swardson and Danny McBride. They strap a bomb to his chest and force him to rob a bank, and somehow his buddy Aziz gets involved. This has all the elements I look for in a comedy: great cast, ridiculous premise, maximum hijinx potential.

The posters feature a scared as hell Eisenberg and Ansari, mid-robbery, as well as the very first intelligent apes from Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Didn’t you know this takes place in the Apes universe? Just like in the true story its based on. (30 Minutes Or Less Official Site)

We finally have a look at Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari in the heist comedy 30 Minutes Or Less. The comedy follows Eisenberg and Ansari’s broken friendship after Eisenberg is rigged to explode unless the duo rob a bank within nine hours.  As predicted, Ansari is the angry guy and Eisenberg is the guy who seems like he might wet himself at any given moment. CALLED DAT SHIT!

What I didn’t see coming was the The Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes cross-over. Those monkeys must be stopped before we’re all slapped in the face with Fate’s cock.

In 30 Minutes Or Less, Danny McBride and Nick Swardson kidnap pizza delivery guy Jesse Eisenberg, and force he and Aziz Ansari to rob a bank. Although we’ve yet to see a trailer, let’s all imagine a slow-motion shot where Eisenberg and Ansari scream as their car jumps a drawbridge. In the meantime, we have the above pictures. Looks like Ansari is playing “Angry Guy,” while Eisenberg plays “Nervous Guy,” McBride plays “Redneck Guy,” and Swardson plays a Juggalo.

Review: Your Highness http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-your-highness/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-your-highness/#comments Wed, 06 Apr 2011 16:13:31 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=205597 It could be funnier but it’s consistently pleasant.

The post Review: Your Highness appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>

Your Highness is a really big budget movie full of action and special effects, all to make really immature jokes. I totally support that and I enjoy the exercise. It could be funnier but it’s consistently pleasant.

Prince Fabious (James Franco) is the heroic heir to a medieval kingdom. Prince Thadeous (Danny McBride) is his slacker, loser brother. When Fabius rescues the virgin Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel) from a tower, the evil Leezar (Justin Theroux) returns to kidnap her back. Thadeous has to step up to help Fabious on his quest to save her.

The production value of Your Highness is on par with any King Arthur or middle earth movie. Leezar shoots magic electro-beams, and the heroes fight monsters of CGI and animatronics. It’s just Thadeous says “F*ck this” and a villain goes naked with his penis digitally removed.

The Danny McBride style of rude swearing is funny with a British accent. It actually comes across as more innocent and endearing. Thadeus is not as abrasive as Kenny Powers, which may strip the film of a little edge. It’s still funny that the star of this huge budget FX movie is totally pissed off that he’s on an adventure.

Leezar is the funniest character. Theroux nails the satirical perspective on an arch evil villain. He messes with Belladonna like a kid making prank phone calls, only it’s the old morphing wizard trick. His ultimate plan for “The F*ckening” gets right to the point of most evil schemes, and his use of magical fairies is totally irreverent.

The action scenes are not very exciting. A carriage chase, sword fights and monster battles look like the genuine article, but don’t flow with any momentum. Thadeous and Fabious meet Isabel (Natalie Portman), a surreptitious warrior, in one such battle. Portman contributes to the film’s tone by keeping a totally straight face while making beaver jokes.

The cave of eyes is a cool fantasy realm, like something out of Labyrinth or The Neverending Story. The wood nymphs are sexy and silly, and there’s minotaur rape. Yeah, they went there. I enjoyed the ride. I probably won’t own it on DVD but it still amuses me when they say “gay” meaning “happy.”

Your Highness star Danny McBride visited students at North Carolina State University with the director, David Gordon Green, and offered sage advice on horse riding, among other topics. You can watch the video above to hear that soothing North Carolina accent, and then catch the rest of the interview with Break‘s own Kara Luiz down below.

Danny, did you initially want to play Thaddeus?

Danny McBride: I was really more interested in getting the movie made. At the time that we sold this, I wasn’t sure anyone would let me be in this movie. As we wrote it and turned in more drafts, my value was raised slightly and I was considered to the film. So then I attached myself and added a lot of kissing scenes with Natalie Portman.

Since we’re at a college. What was college life like for you guys?

David Gordon Green: It was fun. I lived down the hall from Danny at an arts college. It was a good group of people everybody was a little crazy and worked hard. It was a good time to experiment and fall on your ass in front of your friends and try something new.

DM: David was a year ahead of me. My first year of college David was one of my next-door neighbors. David, you remember when I lit the whole entire hall on fire? Put hairspray down the hall and it was like the tire tracks from Back to the Future.

David, did you immediately know which actors you wanted to cast when you read “Your Highness”?

DGG: We had a pretty good idea. Danny and I talked about working with James again because we had such a good time doin Pineapple Express. We’d been getting to know Natalie so we thought it’d be fun to work with her and we’d filmed with Zooey before. Justin was an actor we admired and the cast became an eclectic group of people we knew or knew of.

Are you guys going to auction off Natalie Portman’s thong from the movie?

DM: That’s a good idea. If David didn’t already have it above his mantel in his home.

DGG: I’m wearing it right now.

Spoiler Alert

DM: There’s a hidden dick that no one that’s seen the movie has saw or commented on. In the scene with the five-headed serpent, there are two huge wicker snakes and the snakes have penises.

DGG: Lot of subtleties. Numerous cinematic subtleties.

Do you have a favorite reveal or joke from the movie?

DM: I like when Natalie is revealed for the first time – cool little moment – and when the trophy is revealed of what in taken from the labyrinth.

DGG: I like all the sweet and romantic stuff. This movie plays on an elegant, ethical level of romance, magic and fairytale. It stirs my sassafras.

Was the accent a lot of work?

DM: The voice was the trickiest thing to learn. It’s a weird fantasy accent. When you’re improvising on a show lik Eastbound and Down you can say whatever comes to your head. We lost a lot of good improvs because the dialect was lost.

DGG: It would switch from Ye Olde English to straight up Virginia.

DM: Ye Olde Virginia.

Thoughts on the Special Effects

DGG: This movie is a lot like kids playing in their backyard only we got real swords, real special effects and real creatures. I sat down with guys like Guillermo Del Toro and said here’s what I’m trying to do, what would you advise? I want this movie to look as technically magnificent as it can. It’s a comedy and we’re all having fun but I want it to be badass. No one’s doing that with effects AND being funny.

Did you make this movie for college kids?

DM: We made this movie for the demented 13 year-old versions of ourselves. We grew up loving these kinds of films. We made this with the hope that there are versions of ourselves who would enjoy the same experience.

Danny, are there any wacky stories of fans that have come up to you thinking you’re Kenny Powers?

DM: I’m such a shut in. I don’t get out much. There are kids who come up who want to give you cocaine or shots of tequila because they think that’s what you’re into. I’d say about half of the time I turn that away (jokingly).

As writer and star of”Eastbound and Down,” Danny McBride already has the coolest job. Now he’s looking for another.

He tells The Playlist that he wants to get behind the camera for his next project.

“We’re writing the last season of ‘Eastbound’ and we’ll shoot that this summer and then I’m trying to develop something to get behind the camera. I went to film school and that’s where I met Jody and David and I was focusing on being a writer and director there and I really would love to step into that role so I’m really trying to focus on doing that next.”

It’s still vague what he might want to direct. There’s a whole stable of films in development at his shingle Rough House Pictures. He could easily hop on Olympic Sized Asshole or Bullies. But stay away from Taking Flight. David Gordon Green called dibs and he’s pretty good with that long chain with a knife on the end of it.

David Gordon Green‘s upcoming Your Highness promises to be a raunchy comedy the likes of which you haven’t seen since last month’s raunchy comedy. This one does have wizards, though. It also has Danny McBride in what appears to be a slight variation on Kenny Powers but with a bad British accent (this isn’t an insult, that sounds awesome and I’ll be there opening night). This has been somewhat belied by previous green-band trailers, that have gone so far as to obscure Natalie Portman’s ass in a thong – even though that was declared Safe for Work by The Screen Junkies Coalition for Decency in the Media. Now we have a new red-band trailer, which in addition to Portman’s aforementioned bethonged ass, some almost-nudity from some other females. Also, there’s something other than cigarettes being smoked – probably weed. If you think this isn’t too much for your delicate sensibilities, you can check out the trailer. If not, don’t worry – there will probably be a green-band alternative for you soon. (MSN)

The upcoming comedy from David Gordon Green Your Highness boasts not one, not two, but three stars that define that concept of Hollywood beauty. And these new posters below show that beauty in all its glory. Gaze upon the magnificent cheekbones of Natalie Portman. Stare in awe at the resplendently appointed brow of James Franco. Look at Danny McBride‘s face.

In case this isn’t clear from these posters and the trailer, Your Highness is a kind of blend between medieval fantasy and stoner humor. What genre will David Gordon Green combine with marijuana next? My vote goes to prison rape dramedy. (via Collider)

America’s Pitcher Kenny Powers isn’t interested in becoming a fixture on your HBO screen. The star and creator of “Eastbound and Down,” Danny McBride and Jody Hill recently announced at “Paleyfest” in Los Angeles that their beloved program would not continue after the upcoming third season:

“We never really had an interest in turning the show into anything traditional,” McBride said. “We approach each season like it’s one long movie.”

Bad news for anyone who hoped to see”Eastbound and Down” eventually feature Kenny Powers performing a dangerous water skiing stunt or hang out with the Beach Boys. I guess this also means we won’t see a Kenny Powers movie. Is life even worth living anymore? (via TV Squad)

A documentary called Knuckle screened this weekend at Sundance, about two Irish families with a longstanding rivalry who mercilessly beat each other up in the name of family honor. Okay, now I officially wish I was at Sundance.

HBO was super impressed with first time director Ian Palmer’s buzzed-about documentary, which sounds like the unholy child of Step By Step and Fight Club. They purchased the remake rights to turn the documentary into… a series? Danny McBride‘s Rough House Pictures is attached, which sounds promising.

Apparently, we don’t learn why exactly the families hate each other, but hate each other they do. They even send taunt videos back and forth, like in the WWE, only there’s no need for bad acting because it’s all real. Well, I’m not waiting for the remake. I don’t care whose ass I have to kick to get a screener, I will see this awesome sounding movie. (Deadline)

We’ve reported on Bad Teacher, 30 Minutes Or Less, and Anonymous before. But now we have first looks and better descriptions of the doings that transpire on-screen. Check it.

ANONYMOUS

Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds ranging from Mark Twain and Charles Dickens to Henry James and Sigmund Freud, namely:  who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare?  Experts have debated, books have been written, and scholars have devoted their lives to protecting or debunking theories surrounding the authorship of the most renowned works in English literatureAnonymous poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when cloak-and-dagger political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles hungry for the power of the throne were exposed in the most unlikely of places: the London stage.

You should also note that this drama is directed by Roland “ID4″ Emmerich. The Globe Theatre is so f*cked.

BAD TEACHER

Some teachers just don’t give an F. For example, there’s Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz).  She’s foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate.  She drinks, she gets high, and she can’t wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job.  When she’s dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute (Justin Timberlake) – competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy (Lucy Punch).  When Elizabeth also finds hersel fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher (Jason Segel), the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other.

Drinking and drugs? I guess it’s no big deal as long as she’s not the Driver’s Ed teacher.

30 MINUTES OR LESS

In the action-comedy 30 Minutes or Less, Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is a small town pizza delivery guy whose mundane life collides with the big plans of two wanna-be criminal masterminds (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson).  The volatile duo kidnaps Nick and forces him to rob a bank.  With mere hours to pull off the impossible task, Nick enlists the help of his ex-best friend, Chet (Aziz Ansari).  As the clock ticks, the two must deal with the police, hired assassins, flamethrowers, and their own tumultuous relationship.

I see the major plot hole already. When it turns into a hostage situation, they’ll undoubtedly call out for pizza. Well, who’s gonna deliver it? That’s how you end up with dead hostages, my friend. (via Collider)

We’ve seen the red band trailer for David Gordon Green‘s Your Highness and we all laughed and looked at Natalie Portman in a thong and it was a really good time.  Today, we have the green band version. They’ve cut out the good jokes and left in the cringeworthy ones. That’s one way to sell it.

Then again, they did leave in the Natalie Portman thong shot. Maybe these marketing guys know what they’re doing afterall.

What’cha, what’cha, what’cha want, Elijah Wood, Danny McBride, Will Ferrell, and Jack Black? Oh, to star in a short film based on the Beastie Boys‘ 1987 music video (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party). Adam Yauch, Beastie/movie producer, will write and direct the film entitled Fight For Your Right Revisited. The aforementioned comedy crew, in addition to John C. Reilly, will play the dicks who crash the righteous party.

According to JoBlo, the short film will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January and the synopsis posted on the festival’s official website describes the film thusly: “After the boys leave the party…” Ooooo, how cryptic. It’s almost as if anything could happen, though foul language and shouting is almost a certainty. I don’t think Danny McBride signs on to projects unless he can use several synonyms for the word “penis.”

Let's all take a moment to reflect.

Universal has dropped the epic red-band trailer for Your Highness. The David Gordon Green-directed film stars Danny McBride, James Franco, Zooey Deschanel, and an unbelievably sexy Natalie Portman. Franco and McBride pla brothers, one of them brave, the other an idiot. When Franco’s fair maiden (Deschanel) is kidnapped by an evil witch-man (Justin Theroux), the two go on a quest to rescue her. In the process, they find Natalie Portman, who is sporting some kind of amazing Middle Ages thong. They just don’t make ‘em like they used to. A the town crier would proclaim, “Daaaaaaaaaamn!”
