For Your Consideration: Kirk Lazarus

The genius of Tropic Thunder is that the possibilities for jokes are basically endless. They created this bizarre meta comedy that broke through the Third Wall.  And Awards season only offers even more outlets for spoofing the Hollywood machine-- a machine that ramps up the pretentious seriousness about this time of year.

'The Lazarus Effect' Trailer Experiences Evil Side Effects

Take with food as directed. In The Lazarus Effect, Mark Duplass, Olivia Wilde, Donald Glover, and Evan Peters play four scientists who have not seen Pet Sematary or Flatliners so they are completely oblivious to the nightmare that awaits them when they attempt to play God. Annoyed by the common occurrence of people dying all of the time, they invite a magic elixir that revives dead things. But the formula needs some work because those they resurrect come back evil with demonic superpowers that enable them to squish Donald Glover to death. You can't print that on the label without hurting sales.


Hey Stoners, Here's New ThunderCats Footage

ThunderCats, Hoooooly god I'm so high right now. You might remember the 1980s action cartoon "ThunderCats" for its questionable animation, weirdly self-referential villains, and the hilarious antics of Snarf. Well it appears that there's a new "ThunderCats" coming out, thanks to the stoner-friendly executives down at Cartoon Network HQ. It has a new 2011-friendly anime style too, so you can feel extra-embarrassed about watching it. Unless you're high, in which case you're not reading this anyway because you're watching the video 5 or 6 times. You're welcome! (via The AV Club)


The Machines Are Rising Against Michael Bay

Awwwww. First he's attacked by an air conditioner and now Michael Bay is publicly embarrassed by a teleprompter. While attempting to speak at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Bay was left high and dry when the teleprompter malfunctioned. Though visibly uncomfortable without the assistance of a prompter, Bay soldiered on. He began, "Um, I take — I try to take people on an emotional ride, and, um … " It was at this point that he realized he was talking about Michael Bay films being an emotional ride and excused himself from the stage. On the scale of teleprompter fails, this falls somewhere between Bill O'Reilly's meltdown and Ron Burgundy telling San Diego to go fuck itself.


Painfully Meta 'Girls' Season 4 Teaser Takes Hannah/Lena Out Of NYC

If you think too hard about the layers, you'll get a nosebleed. Now that the dust has settled around HBO's Girls, the program has sort of become just another show on TV. Which probably isn't great for ratings, so in a move to shake things up, the show is sending Hannah to the University of Iowa to become a grad student. In this trailer, we see Hannah pleasantly riding a bike, then, in typically Hannah fashion, crashing it and eating shit. As she lays lifeless, we see the filming crew emerge yelling "Ms. Dunham" as they swap Dunham out for a stunt double. It's all a bit too much to want to read into, so I'm not gonna. TL; DR: Girls is coming back in early 2015, Hannah is in Iowa, and that's that.


Chris Rock Is A Machine Gun Sprayin' Bear In 'Top Five' Trailer

Hammy Time! In Top Five, Chris Rock's character just wants to be funny again. It looks like he's got his wish. Here he stars as a former standup turned movie star thanks to the outrageously successful Hammy The Bear series of action films. Despite his fame, fortune, and hanger-on reality star wife, Rock's character feels disconnected but finds himself being reinvigorated when Rosario Dawson's TIME reporter shadows him for a cover story and helps him rediscover his roots. And also admit that LL Cool J is almost as good as Biggie. Now that's funny. The movie was a huge hit at TIFF last month, and was snatched up by Paramount for seven figures in a bidding war. The film opens in December and we'll hopefully get a Hammy the Bear spin-off in 2016. Luis Guzman could use a hit.


Ain't No Problem A Bazooka Can't Solve In 'Machine Gun Preacher' Trailer

Gerard Butler gets results. Wow. Gerard Butler is helping hungry kids in a way that makes Sally Struthers look super-lazy. He stars in Machine Gun Preacher as Sam Childers, a former drug dealer who decides to up his good karma by traveling to the Sudan and helping the impoverished by kicking hunger down a bottomless pit.

Watch 'Bad Grandpa' Get His Penis Stuck In A Vending Machine

The elderly get themselves into the damndest scrapes. Watching an old man get his penis stuck in a vending machine is just one of the many treasures you'll witness in the red-band trailer for Bad Grandpa. The unsuspecting public are also forced to witness Johnny Knoxville's Irving get his 8-year old grandson Billy sh*t-housed, ruin a funeral, dump a body, freak out some pretty rough-looking strippers, and leave a trail of destruction (and probably bodily fluids) in their wake. Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa opens in theaters on Friday, October 25th, 2013.
