The 'Peanuts' Trailer Brings Us Grief, But Not The Good Kind

I would say they're ruining my childhood, but I credit my ruined childhood to lots of different sources. We've got a 60-second teaser for Peanuts, the Charlie Brown-centric film that will include all the anthropomorphic dogs, lesbians, dirt-covered children, and malevolent, vindictive girls that we grew to love in the comic strip. It seems a little more spirited than the TV specials, which is a pretty easy feat, considering the characters in those ambled about as though they had a grapefruit-sized lithium suppository crammed inside them. Other than that, expect perhaps a little attitude from Snoopy. I would also expect a Snoop Dogg cameo, but, then again, I'm always expecting a Snoop Dogg cameo. I was surprised I didn't get one in Blackfish.

This New 'Peanuts' Trailer Is A Parade Of Embarrassing Indignities

Suffer the little children. Mark your calendars for November 6th. That's the day where it becomes socially-acceptable to publicly laugh at a balding, 8-year old spazzoid and his dog, who very well might be high. The newest trailer for the CGI version of Peanuts features Snoopy flying high in his Nazi-killing daydreams as the ace pilot on the tail of the Red Baron. He, of course, falls down and gets laughed at. Then it squeezes in the O.G. f*cktard himself, Charlie Brown, as he becomes the subject of public ridicule by accidentally dropping two buckets of popcorn onto his head which isn't even physically possible. Don't worry, kid. It may seem that you're cursed by voodoo or something, but it gets better.


'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance' Trailer Is An Improvement

Much better than the first attempt. Here's our first look at what Crank directors Mark Nevaldine and Brian Taylor cooked up for Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance. There's no shortage of crazy here. However, there is a shortage of restraint. On the one hand, the action looks pretty cool in the over-the-top way that you'd expect, but then you're treated to seeing Ghost Rider eat and regurgitate bullets before peeing a stream of fire. I guess Nicolas Cage didn't get that out of his system in Bad Lieutenant.


'Submarine' Trailer Breaks Hearts, Lifts Spirits, Changes Lives

Writer/Director Richard Ayoade, best know as Moss from the UK sitcom "The IT Crowd," has put together a first feature that looks pretty fantastic. No Hyperbole! Okay, well, maybe a little. Writer/Director Richard Ayoade, best know as Moss from the British Channel 4 sitcom "The IT Crowd," has put together a first feature that looks pretty fantastic. If the trailer is any indication, Submarine should have film lovers, cinema majors, and quirky, multi-colored font enthusiasts jumping for joy. The film, about a 15 year old boy coming of age amidst first love and divorced parents, features original music by Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys, and is executive produced by Ben Stiller.


Beastie Boys ‘Fight For Your Right’ Trailer Is Cameos And Little Else

All of 2004's hottest stars are out to shine in this cameo parade! The trailer for Fight for Your Right Revisited is out, and pretty much the only purpose it serves is verifying that there are a metric shit ton of celebrity cameos in the 30-minute film. For a full list of the actors involved, click on our earlier coverage of the film here. Strangely, despite the presence of so many comic actors, no one here really appears to be that funny at all. Except for Will Arnett who drops one of his best G.O.B. lines. It might not be original, but I don't care. It's G.O.B. And I love him. No plot points are revealed here, as my suspicion is that no plot exists for this film, so have fun identifying celebs and wondering why the Beasties didn't want more girls in their video.


Here's The First Trailer For That CGI 'Peanuts' Movie

It's amazing how much better a computer can render a crudely drawn head than a person can. To all the people who were waiting until the first trailer to get all up in arms about the CGI treatment taking over your beloved Charlie Brown...your time has come. The first trailer for Peanuts movie is here, and it's...pretty good. The CGI appears to be soft enough that it doesn't look edgy or high tech. The opening scene conveys a holiday sweetness, and we get the big Charlie Brown reveal at the end of the clip. Nothing terribly offensive here, in my opinion, but I discovered a long time ago that my opinion may differ hugely from others'. To all the haters, there's no Twitter references, no Katy Perry/Imagine Dragons reimagining of "Linus and Lucy," or anything like that. Though now that I think about it, the adults' voices do have a certain dubstep quality to them. Maybe Skrillex can voice the adults. That will speak to the tweens more than a morose pre-teen with elephantiasis of the head.


Zach Galifianakis Gets Nimble, Zach Gets Quick On 'Sesame Street'

Spoiler: A piranha comes to eat him. Zach Galifianakis practiced a little grooming, put on a nice cardigan, and found his way to Sesame Street to star in a bit about the nursery rhyme "Jack Be Nimble." It's pretty damn good, and Zach looks right at home on set, making me think he could maybe be a Sesame Street regular. He could replace Oscar or something as a buttoned-down manager at H&R Block. We could over-analyze this to death, but watch the clip. It's cute.


Robert Downey Jr.’s Creepy Mr. Peanut Commercial

Yesterday we reported that Robert Downey Jr. would be voicing the monocled legume Mr. Peanut in a new commercial for Planters. Today we have that very commercial. Yesterday we reported that Robert Downey Jr. would be voicing the monocled legume Mr. Peanut in a new commercial for Planters. Today we have that very commercial. It appears it's taking its stylistic cues from Wes Anderson's The Fantastic Mr. Fox, with Downey filling in for Clooney. I'm also not certain why a peanut would remain friends with a nutcracker, especially if said nutcracker tried to murder him at his last get together, but I guess some are more forgiving than others. The person who cracked my skull open many moons ago I no longer consider an acquaintance. (ThePlaylist)


See Abed’s Cameo On ‘Cougar Town’ As Promised By ‘Community’

It's a Special Relationship. If you've succumbed to peer pressure and have been watching "Community" on NBC, you know that it has a Special Relationship with the ABC show"Cougar Town." It culminated last night on "Cougar Town," when none other than Abed himself, Danny Pudi, could be seen in the background during a scene on the show. And if you watch the clip above, you'll see that it's not just Pudi picking up some work as an extra, he's in character as Abed, which quite frankly is making me a little dizzy. [post-album postid="207716" item="1"] This isn't the first co-mingling of the two series. Dan Byrd and Busy Philipps, the principals of the scene above, appeared as extras on an episode of "Community." I ... I need to sit down. (The Washington Post)
