Chicks Don't Dig Cancer In '50/50' Trailer

It's like hot chick kryptonite. [post-album postid="224275" item="1"]This morning we have a new trailer for Will Reiser's autobiographical 50/50 that focuses more on the comedic and less on the film's bummerific aspects. This shorter look leans more heavily on Seth Rogen to make light of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's cancer like any good friend would. Though as evidenced here, using cancer to pick up chicks isn't as foolproof as it sounds. It's cancer. Not a puppy. 50/50 opens in theaters on September 30th and also stars Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Phillip Baker Hall, and Angelica Houston.

Laugh In The Face Of Cancer With The ’50/50' Trailer

About time that somebody knocked that lousy disease down a peg or two. [post-album postid="30794" item="1"] Please stick around after the awkward introduction to watch the trailer for 50/50. Based on the true story of cancer survivor Will Reiser and directed by Jonathan Levine (The Wackness), the film looks pretty well done. Joseph Gordon-Levitt slaps on a cardigan to play Adam (based on Reiser), the cancer-stricken 27-year old who must learn to live with the disease. Seth Rogen addresses Reiser at the top of the trailer as one of his "best friends." But then he goes and co-stars as the goofy best friend. Is he imitating himself? Could be. Though at first I thought he was imitating the character Dan Fogler always plays.


Help Cancer Survivors By Playing Metroid With Will Ferrell

Must be at least 13 to enter. How would you like to play video games with Will Ferrell and put cancer flat on its ass at the same time? The comedian is teaming up with Amazon's game streaming service Twitch for a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo with hopes of raising $375,000 for Cancer for College and Even though he totally owns that much money and could probably just give it to them. If you'd like to enter for the chance to square off against the star in Will Ferrell's SuperMegaBlastMax Gamer Challenge, donate a minimum of $10. The winner of the sweepstakes will play video games with Ferrell for two hours on Oct. 26 in San Francisco, which will be broadcast live on Twitch. There's a wide array of other incentives for those who would like to donate. Besides entry into the contest, a $10 donation comes with a $5 Amazon gaming credit; $25 will get you 1 month of Twitch Turbo. Donations of $50 and up will receive Will Ferrell's SuperMegaUVBlastMax: Gamer's Sunscreen or a SuperMegaBlastMax Event T-Shirt. For $500, you get an autographed cowbell and $1,500 you'll get a video message from Ferrell, while a $5,000 donation will fund a college scholarship for a cancer survivor which is arguably way less cool than the cowbell.


Watch '40 Moustaches in 100 Seconds' And Help Fight Prostate Cancer

Even if you're sick of the whole mustache thing, you have to like this because it's for charity, and people will think you're a bastard if you don't. First, moustaches were for frontiersmen. Then everyone. Then cops. Then pedophiles. Then hipsters. Well, next month, moustaches are for everyone again with "Movember," the annual movement that gets people to grow out their 'staches in order to raise sponsorship money for prostate and testicular cancer awareness. If you're still on the fence, I highly suggest that you peruse the different styles in this video and find the one that best fits you. But not Luigi. That one's mine. And, of course, Luigi's. Sure, you probably won't be able to sprout out a whole bushy mustache in a month, but I guarantee you'll look funny trying. And if your boss gives you shit for looking like John Holmes during your deposition, just ask him why he hates charities so much. That should shut him up. Have a solemn and respectful Movember (click the link for more info on how you can get involved, as well as some funny, funny creative stuff). And seriously, stay away from the Luigi. Sh*t's mine.


Anna Kendrick Puts The Moves On Satan In 'Rapturepalooza' Red Band Trailer

Rob Corddry and Craig Robinson experience the end of the world yet again. The Mayans may not have been accurate with their prediction that the world would end in 2012, but maybe we just interpreted that information wrong. Perhaps their prediction was that 2012 would be the end of movies not being about the end of the world. Because there are seriously a shit ton of those nowadays. Hitting theaters before Simon Pegg's The World's End and Seth Rogen's This Is The End, comes Rapturepalooza. The film stars actors from the Apatow and Edgar Wright camps that didn't end up in those other films but still wanted to participate in some isn't-it-weird-the-world-is-ending hijinks. Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daley star as a young couple squaring off against Craig Robinson's Anti-Christ. The supporting cast includes Ken Jeong, Thomas Lennon, Tyler Labine, Rob Huebel, Ana Gasteyer, Paul Scheer, and Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World's Rob Corddry. No more world ending films after these. 'Kay, guys?


Arnold Schwarzenegger's Movie Commentary Is Way More Entertaining Than His Movies

He explains 'Total Recall' for you, in case you have trouble following Arnold Schwarzenegger films. I wish there was a button on my computer that let me write with an Arnold Schwarzenegger accent. Sadly, the technology just isn't there yet, so please just run a loop of Arnie quotes through your head as you read this. May I suggest "Get your ass to Mars," "It's not a tumor," and "Get to the chopper!" Some gentleman with the YouTube handle of "buzzclikverifyme" went through the trouble (pleasure?) of piecing together some choice bits from Arnold Schwarzenegger's Total Recall commentary. The commentary also features another bizarrely awesome accent, which I am going to assume belongs to Dutch director Paul Verhoeven. I can't do the clip justice. Simply put, it's Arnie pointing out painfully obvious points about the film (especially to those who like the film enough to want to watch the commentary). Take four minutes out of your life and enjoy this clip that reminds us that we can't stay mad at Arnold. (Film Drunk)


Entertainment Tonight Teases ‘Green Lantern’ Trailer

Tuesday, Entertainment Tonight is going to premiere the Green Lantern trailer that will play before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Yesterday they premiered the teaser of that trailer in between "We're number one! We're number one!" promotional graphics. Tuesday, Entertainment Tonight is going to premiere the Green Lantern trailer that will play before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Yesterday they premiered the teaser of that trailer in between "We're number one! We're number one!" promotional graphics. The footage gives you a taste of what's to come, and by that I mean Blake Lively. Alright, you got me, Ryan Reynolds also makes me blush. I just wish he'd get rid of that gaudy ring. Ya didn't win a Super Bowl, buddy! (/Film)


'Captain America' Trailer Preview Almost Ruined By "Entertainment Tonight"

This trailer-preview-thing for director Joe Johnston's 'Captain America' comes courtesy of "E.T.," who got their glitziness and excessive voice over all over Cap's shield. Can't wait for the full Captain America: The First Avenger trailer to drop? Here's something to tide you Marvel-loving nerd soldiers over: a preview video for the trailer. That's right, it's a preview designed to hype an upcoming trailer. 2012 is getting closer and closer, folks. This trailer-preview-thing for director Joe Johnston's Captain America comes courtesy of "Entertainment Tonight," who got their glitziness and excessive voice over all over Cap's shield. Disgusting. However, to quote the great Homer Simpson, "it's still good. It's still good." We've also got a very, very short clip from the trailer off Paramount's Twitter feed. If you blink and press play at the same time, you'll miss what happens. Better get the clothespins out for those pesky eyelids. (Cinema Blend)
