We’ve already gleaned the plot of Gone Girl from the earlier trailer: Questions surround a husband’s (Ben Affleck) involvement in the wake of his wife’s murder. It’s creepy, it’s based on a book that supposedly has a pretty interesting twist, and it’s David Fincher, so you know you’ll be put through the ringer before it’s resolved.

However, did you know that during this whole ride, we’re going to get a dose of Neil Patrick Harris as a creepy, possible-murderer? That’s a twist in and of itself. Check out the trailer and watch America’s sweetheart completely upend his wholesome image.

Neil Patrick Harris Was Offered ‘The Late Show’ Before Colbert http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/neil-patrick-harris-was-offered-the-late-show-before-colbert/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/neil-patrick-harris-was-offered-the-late-show-before-colbert/#comments Thu, 15 May 2014 15:15:12 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=261681 He didn't take it.

On the Howard Stern show a couple days ago, Neil Patrick Harris revealed to the shock-jock that he had been in very early talks with head of CBS Les Moonves to host The Late Show, following news of David Letterman‘s retirement.

Harris declined, saying he “knew what his skill sets were,” implying that maybe hosting a national talk show for 200 days a year wasn’t in that set.

But Doogie Howser said on the show that he would be open to another type of late-night show, one with more of a variety bend to it. More specifically, he said he would want it to be weekly with pre-taped and live bits.

So I’m guessing Neil Patrick Harris told the brass at CBS that he wanted to be on Saturday Night Live? I wonder how that went over.

Moreover, Neil Patrick Harris is probably the most liked man in America. Let’s not screw that up with a talk show.

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas is coming to Blu-ray on February 7th. In honor of the momentous occasion, we’re rolling out this clip featuring everyone’s favorite drug-abusing pseudo-gay sex-addict, Neil Patrick Harris.

In this scene, NPH uses his homosexual cover story to lure a backup dancer into his dressing room. And since he’s so non-threatening, what’s the harm in some nude massage? After all, they’re just a couple of girlfriends, right?

At any rate, if you’re anxious to see how this ends (hint: it ends poorly), go and pre-order the Blu-ray. Tell them Jame Gumb sent you, and receive absolutely no discount.

‘Harold & Kumar’ Was Crude, Racist, Sexist, Homophobic, And Enjoyable http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/harold-kumar-was-crude-racist-sexist-and-homophobic-so-i-enjoyed-it/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/harold-kumar-was-crude-racist-sexist-and-homophobic-so-i-enjoyed-it/#comments Fri, 04 Nov 2011 21:42:34 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=235211 Not a bad flick, provided you're a bad person.

What can you say about A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas? By the time you reach the third installment of a comedy franchise, you pretty much know what to expect. This film is no exception. Drug use, nudity, racially offensive humor and all the other things you loved or hated from the first two films are here, as is the usual cast of side characters (NPH, anyone?). So the real question isn’t “is this film good?” but rather “do I like juvenile, offensive humor?” Since you’re on this site, I’m going to guess you answered yes to that question. As such, you can do a lot worse than A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas.

While I did enjoy the film, there’s no sense in pretending it was a masterpiece. There are times when the plot becomes overly sappy, and focuses too much on the strained relationship of Harold & Kumar. I know some semblance of a story is necessary even in a stoner comedy, but why drag it out in a film like this? We know they are going to patch things up from the moment we realize there’s a conflict, so there’s no need for sappy, sentimental monologues about friendship.

Another problem I had with the film was the nudity. There wasn’t enough. This is already an R-rated movie, so why pull punches? There were several times where I found myself wondering “Why isn’t she getting topless?” Before you throw a rock at my face, keep in mind I’m not talking about a random female actress playing a waitress. I’m talking about actresses involved in the film’s various sex scenes. If this was almost any other movie, I wouldn’t be acting like such a sexist pig. But this is a Harold & Kumar sequel, so I don’t feel out of line having these expectations.

But those minor (and stupid) points aside, I have no real complaints about this film. Yes, it’s sexist, racially insensitive garbage, but that’s what it sets out to be. Besides, in my opinion, a talking, self-aware, waffle-making robot (which this film prominently features) makes up for anything in the politically incorrect department. So if you’re in the mood for some cheap, often twisted laughs, check it out (or save some cash, and watch it on Netflix in a few months).

But if you’ve uttered the phrase “that’s offensive” any time in the pas 24 hours, go watch Stuck Between Stations. Also, lighten the f*ck up.

It wouldn’t be A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas without a little NPH. Neil Patrick Harris returns in the third Harold & Kumar film. Now if you think he died in Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay, you didn’t stay until the end of the credits. There’s an Easter egg, and now he’s back for holiday debauchery.

“He’s a song and dance man and he’s happy holiday and also may smoke some crack cocaine and try and force himself into one of the dancers,” Harris said. “That’s all I’ll say about that.”

Note that right now, Harris is promoting the family friendly Smurfs film. But figure the NPH of the Harold & Kumar franchise must have earned his invitation to the family Christmas party.

“Oh, he’s far from invited to Christmas,” Harris added. “They come upon him in a very hilarious way.”

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas is out this November.

Here’s another trailer for The Smurfs. It has a theoretically funny Avatar parody, and very little of my favorite part of the last trailer, Hank Azaria as the evil Gargamel.

The movie stars Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, and Sofía Vergara, and is an update of the popular/scorned children’s TV show. I don’t know what else to say about this trailer. Take your kids, I’m sure they’ll be into it.

The Screen Junkies Gif Recap is back! Featuring the mindlessness of television without all the over-analysis of your average recap, it’s the next best thing to watching television. Today’s installment: “How I Met Your Mother” – The Perfect Cocktail.

The show begins with Marshall leaving his job at GNB in order to pursue a position at an environmental firm. However, his manager, Arthur (Bob Odenkirk), sabotages his chances by telling the prospective employer that Marshall hates the environment, clubs baby seals, and comes to work without pants.

Angered by the double cross, Marshall decides to get back at his former employer by lending his support to Zoey’s cause (preventing the demolition of the Arcadian Hotel by GNB). This angers Barney to no end. He helped Marshall land the job, and feels completely betrayed. Vowing revenge, Barney does something, most likely of a sexual nature, to Marshall’s megaphone.

As retaliation, Marshall spreads rumors that Barney is married to a pregnant woman and that he has crabs that have been diagnosed with herpes. As a result, the confrontation escalates to the point of a physical fight, which gets everyone banned from the bar. Desperate for a resolution, the girls decide to get the guys wasted with the hope that they will then be able to open up to each other emotionally. This requires the right type of alcohol, so the girls do some research to figure out the perfect cocktail. Martini’s are ruled out, since it brings out the bisexual in Lily. Red wine is ruled out, because it turns Barney into a sad, introspective drunk. Absinthe is also off the table, since it sends Robin into an alternate reality in which she thinks she is part of a baby’s dream.

Ted, who is getting ready to go on a trip with Zoey, suggests bourbon, since it gives him the uncanny ability to beat box. However, Lily informs him that bourbon only causes him to think he’s a good beat boxer, a revelation which shatters his ego.

Other drinks are ruled out for various reasons, including the fact that some cause Marshall to become violent (hence the clip below, where he plays chicken with a mirror). Eventually, the two men end up patching things up over beers. They are readmitted to the bar, and all is right with the world…or so it seems.

Meanwhile, Ted and Zoey are fighting over the Arcadian Hotel. Ted can’t understand why Zoey would jeopardize his firm’s project over such a run-down dump. In order to prove his point, he cancels their weekend getaway and books a room at the Arcadian. Despite the communal bathrooms and the lingering threat of hooker ghosts, Zoey maintains her love for the hotel, confessing that when she was younger, her poverty stricken family was forced to live there. After the revelation, Ted confesses his love to Zoey, but the moment is quickly broken up by the appearance of the cockamouse, the half-roach half-mouse creature that used to live at Ted’s apartment. It has now settled at the hotel, and Ted is touched to see it is raising a family. Zoey is less than impressed, and the two flee the hotel.

The next morning, Marshall and Barney wake up and begin fighting as if nothing has changed. Confused, the girls determine that the men ended up drinking so much that they blacked out and forgot about the reconciliation. Disappointed, Lily and Robin decide to drown their sorrows in Absinthe.

So, at the end of the episode, both Ted and Marshall are aligned against Barney over the issue of the hotel, and Zoey and Ted seem to be growing even closer in their relationship. With just a few more episodes left in the season, how will these issues resolve? Prediction, Zoey will chain herself to the hotel, and will be killed during its demolition, wrapping up all the lose ends in a satisfying matter.

If you’re wondering what Alvin and the Chipmunks would be like if the chipmunks were blue and were chased around by an ugly wizard and his cat, then stop using your imagination and watch the horrible trailer above. It’s for Sony‘s The Smurfs, it will be showing in Mand-O-Tory 3D, and it looks smurfing awful. There are jokes about Smurf butts, jokes about Smurfs burping, jokes about Smurfs farting – and those were the highlights of the trailer. The highlights.

I feel bad for Neil Patrick Harris, who looks like he’s playing the role of Non-Threatening Anxious Caretaker Of Kooky Talking Creatures. We saw the exact same character in Alvin and the Chipmunks and Yogi Bear. Wait, if they’re all the same character, does that mean their universes tie together? Will there be a CG movie starring The Smurfs Yogi Bear and Alvin and the Chipmunks? Okay, now I’ve just Smurfed myself. In terror.

Smurfing into a smurf smurf shitty smurf theater shit-smurf August 3rd. (Deadline)

First Two Minutes Of ‘Rio’ Makes Me Reconsider The Ethics Of Bird Hunting http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/first-two-minutes-of-rio-makes-me-reconsider-the-ethics-of-bird-hunting/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/first-two-minutes-of-rio-makes-me-reconsider-the-ethics-of-bird-hunting/#comments Sat, 29 Jan 2011 04:36:09 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=Video&p=23340 Here's a preview of the animated movie 'Rio.' The upcoming 'Rio' version of Angry Birds for iPhone sounds more promising, because maybe I'll get to destroy these fowl pheasants.

The post First Two Minutes Of ‘Rio’ Makes Me Reconsider The Ethics Of Bird Hunting appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Fox just released the first two minutes of their upcoming animated film Rio. The overly cheerful singing, the obnoxiously bright colors, the cute wittle baby bird who’s just wearning how to fwy… Now I wish I was a bird, so I’d have the claws to claw my god damn eyes out. If you’re really into The Enchanted Tiki Room at Disneyland, and not in a let’s-get-high-and-laugh-at-how-retarded-this-is way, then this 3D movie is clearly for you.

Rio is directed by Carlos Saldanha, who did all the Ice Age movies and Robots. So after this clip, that’s really bad sign #2. However, a few promising elements are soaring above the mess of bird shit. The cast includes Jesse Eisenberg, Neil Patrick Harris and Anne Hathaway. Also, the plot doesn’t sound too terrible:

“A nerdy macaw who leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio de Janeiro. He embarks on the adventure of a lifetime, learning to open himself up to all that life has to offer along the way.”

Actually, the coolest sounding news surrounding Rio is that Rovio is making a Rio-themed sequel to their Angry Birds iPhone game. I’m an Angry Birds addict, so the thought of using these cloying birds as living weapons to destroy pigs in towers has me excited. Sexually excited? Let’s not go there, but yes.

Wait, I just read a little further and apparently you use the original Angry Birds to rescue the characters from Rio. So… now I’m thinking it’s time to take my 28 gauge out of the tool shack, cause I’m declaring this bird season. (/Film and TheWrap)

A handsome, 25-year ol high school student is cursed to look like a Henna-tattooed penis and mus break the spell by discovering inner beauty and making out with Vanessa Hudgens. The real story here is the film was pushed out of its initial release date to make room for Zac Efron‘s Charlie St. Cloud. In honor of its new March 18th, 2011 release, we have another look at the film. Between Alex Pettyfer‘s tribal fug monster look and NPH’s blind guy glasses, it looks like the production designer raided the X-Men 3 prop closet.

It opens with something that a new viewer to the show might think is a big reveal. Of course we know they never get right to the point.

“How I Met Your Mother” is a comedy with as many secrets as “Lost.” I can’t really spoil anything that happens in the season premiere, so I’ll just try to talk about the comedy and tease the cool stuff that develops in the plot.

It opens with something that a new viewer to the show might think is a big reveal. Of course we know they never get right to the point. They like to set up some future event and then go back and slowly lead back up to it until we realize what we thought we were seeing wasn’t actually what we were seeing.

More after the jump…

Then we immediately go to a Barney scene, ranting about something a little sexist but something we can all agree on. The main body of the show is about another group phenomenon that’s immature, yet everyone abides by it. I love how “HIMYM” analyzes those rules we all follow.

Ted has a relationship dilemma to face at MacLaren’s. Marshall and Lily have an issue with boundaries and agreements. Robin’s in a bad place this episode and Cobie Smulders goes at it with full confidence.

Each of the three storylines has a bunch of shenanigans attached to it. They flash forward, have a fantasy or have a real celebration that’s inappropriate in the real world but hilarious on a sitcom.

Barney has a heartfelt moment, poignant and of course followed by a Barneyism. The boys come up with some new schticks and reactions to them that truly feel like lifelong friends’ interaction. Even the one-off jokes about someone in the bar or a character’s reaction are pretty observant about people in general.

So stuff happens in the return of “How I Met Your Mother” and it’s a solid episode for the show. They’ve got some heart, some basic humor and a little surrealism to elevate it above the usual sitcom.

"How I Met Your Mother" returns September 20th at 8/7c on CBS.

Thus he joins the illustrious ranks of Jason Lee, Breckin Meyer, Matthew Lillard, and Jerry O'Connell before him.The openly gay star is beloved for his talented turns in How I Met Your Mother, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Doogie Howser M.D., the Harold and Kumar films and as host of the Emmys. Though it is unclear whether he will play a human who encounters the Smurfs or the fugly wizard Gargamel, I'm sure he will ably class up this project.Going forward all Richard Gere/Gerbil jokes should be replaced with NPH/Smurf jokes. Homophobes everywhere, please update your dogmatic joke books accordingly. (Deadline Hollywood)
