Seann William Scott Thrashes Canadians In 'Goon' Red Band

Is this hockey or a hate crime? This trailer for Goon opens with Seann William Scott wondering about his place in the world. His father and brother have the whole doctor thing, and all he has is a willingness to be seen in public with Jay Baruchel. Until one fateful evening when he beats the sh*t out of a Canadian. This gives another Canadian the idea that maybe Canadians would pay to see this Canadian beat other Canadians mercilessly. And thus, he is declared their greatest champion. It's a lot like Gladiator. But only if the characters in Gladiator drank Molson and ate Poutine. Oh, and Jim's Dad is there. Did anyone bother to tell him this isn't an American Pie sequel?

'Goon' Trailer Teaches Us Hockey Is About Fighting And Little Else

Seann William Scott vs. Liev Schreiber. It's like the Pacquiao-Mayweather fight, except no one asked for it. Judging by its trailer, the hockey comedy Goon looks to be a strange film. It's got all the hallmarks of comedy (slapstick, Stifler, Eugene Levy), but it doesn't appear to be funny. In its defense, it's not clear that the film is trying to be funny, either. What is it about hockey comedies that aren't funny? Slap Shot, Mystery, Alaska, and now this film. In any event, Goon tells the story of bouncer Doug Glatt (Seann William Scott), who plays hockey as an enforcer, ruling the roost until he gets called up to the next league, where he's outclassed by the like of Liev Schreiber's Ross Rhea. They also drink a lot, and he sleeps with a girl that looks an awful lot like Zooey Deschanel, but isn't. This is a hard movie to peg. Check out the trailer and see if you can do a better job than I can.


William Shatner Gets The Straight Dope In 'The Captains' Documentary

He's like the Michael Moore of nerdy stuff. [post-album postid="208133" item="3"]Famed mountain climber William Shatner has embarked on another grand journey. In this trailer for The Captains, Shatner tracks down and interviews Star Trek's various Captains. But more importantly, he also finds occasion to sit in a cardboard box like some kind of well-dressed hobo. While interviewing his Starfleet Command peers, Shatner also recalls his own experiences with playing the role. The actors interviewed are Patrick Stewart, Chris Pine, Kate Mulgrew, Avery Brooks, and, okay, I guess throw Scott Bakula in there too. Here's hoping the sequel will see Shatner chasing after the sexy ladies of Star Trek. It can't be hard to find that footage.

Knight Rider Rescues Vanessa Williams From Terrorists

We are still in the days of TV experimentation, and tonight just may be the riskiest decision. Yep, we're watching Knight Rider, because it's been written up as being "nothing more than car-porn," or being "so delectably bad that you have to watch it just to tell your grandchildren that you were there," and because tonight's episode involves rescuing Vanessa Williams from terrorists. To cleanse the palate, VH1 is offering the 40 greatest pranks of all-time.


This Videos Argues William H. Macy Characters Are The Biggest Losers In Film. Are They?

It makes a pretty strong argument. It's no secret that William H. Macy has carved out a nice little niche for himself playing pitiful, down-on-their-luck characters who just generally are run down by their own lives. But are they THE MOST PITIFUL? Are they THE BIGGEST LOSERS? This video, created by the Huffington Post, argues, yeah, they are. And it's a pretty strong argument. See for yourself: Who comes close to THAT? Only a few Simpsons characters like Moleman (who just seems to have bad luck more than anything else) or Gil. Old Gil could give him a run for his money. William H. Macy's characters are often so pathetic that it's hard to view them as real and not cartoony. But he makes them work. (A.V. Club)


The Real Star of ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ Is William H. Macy’s Hair

The premise of The Lincoln Lawyer makes the movie sound a lot more charming than the third trailer makes it look. The premise of The Lincoln Lawyer (Matthew McConaughey practices law out of the back of his car) makes the movie sound a lot more charming than the third trailer makes it look. It seems to play as a straight-up legal thriller, albeit with a lot of stars. Additionally, we get Ryan Phillipe at The Lincoln Lawyer's bad-boy client, William H. Macy, Marissa Tomei, Josh Lucas, and John Leguizamo. The trailer does a pretty good job of confusing the hell out of the viewer, so kudos to the producers for that. The big takeaway here is that there's lots of deception, and these men love to yell at each other. Something tells me that, when all is said and done, the guilty parties will wish they had never crossed...The Lincoln Lawyer. If you're on the fence, it's looking like William H. Macy is sporting his funniest hairstyle since Boogie Nights, so do with that information what you will.


William Ferrell Is Terrible At Joining Gangs In Funnier 'Get Hard' Trailer

Then again, it's never easy to get into a really good gang. The hardening of Will Ferrell does not go very well in this second trailer for Get Hard. The set up is still the same. Rich, white guy Ferrell is sentenced to serve time in San Quentin, the toughest prison in the country. With thirty days until his sentence begins, he reaches out to the only black person he knows, Kevin Hart, to help him get accustomed to what life will be like on the inside. The only problem with that plan is that Kevin Hart has no idea what life is like in prison, but he's happy to exploit his naivety and gets him started on a program. What's the worst that can happen? It's not like a monkey is going to stab Will Ferrell in the head. Or is it?


Robin Williams Voices A Dog Opposite Simon Pegg In This First 'Absolutely Anything' Clip

Simon Pegg has been on a bit of a sci-fi tear recently. With mixed results. Simon Pegg stars in Absolutely Anything, a sci-fi comedy that also features a talking dog voiced by Robin Williams. Hmmm. Could be interesting. This clip doesn't shed much light on the film's plot, soooooooo... Pegg plays Neil Clarke, a schoolteacher who gets magical powers bestowed upon him by aliens. And those aliens are voiced by the guys from Monty Python. And the dog is voiced, as I mentioned, by Robin Williams. Lots of voices. Beyond that, not a whole lot has been divulged, and while I'm sure the full trailer will give us a little more plot and tone, this is just a clip, so do with it what you will. It doesn't look bad, but nothing with Simon Pegg ever does. (Deadline)
