It’s a big weekend for HBO, Nick Cage, and Asian kids who like basketball.

In Theatres.

Bangkok Dangerous.

We have Nick Cage. Sex trafficking. Thailand. Guns. What more do you need?

Ping Pong Playa

There’s a bit of an Asian theme for the only two movies that are being released this weekend that seem worth watching. This one is about a Chinese kid who wants to play pro basketball, but ends up teaching his mom’s ping pong class. We have not seen it yet, so we have no idea if it’s good. I’m guessing that if you are Chinese and you like to play basketball, then it’s your type of movie.

On The Tee-Vee

Cops- Season 21 Premiere

Satuday, Fox. 8/7c. I’m under arrest? Ya’lls is under arrest. But seriously, 21 years on the TV. That’s nuts.

True Blood- Series Premiere

Sunday, 9pm. HBO. Here’s the premise for the show: “Thanks to a Japanese scientist's invention of synthetic blood, vampires have progressed from legendary monsters to fellow citizens overnight.” See? Science just saved your blood from being eaten.

Entourage- Season 5 Premiere

Sunday, 10pm. HBO. Ah, the sleaze, the broken families, the hustle, the piles of cash built on bullshit. It’s what makes Hollywood what it is. It’s also what makes this show one of the best things that Hollywood has ever come up with. Now I’m going to go drink myself stupid and watch C-Span while Stan stays sober and sees Bangkok Dangerous.

Set Visit To ‘The Hangover 2' Reveals More Insanity, Bangkok Style

The always dependable (if slightly cheesy) 'Entertainment Tonight' paid a visit to the set of 'The Hangover 2', and gave us a glimpse of the kind of insanity we're in store for when it in theaters May 26th. The four friends from The Hangover couldn't possibly get into any more trouble than they did in Vegas, right? They did just about everything you could do in Vegas without suffering permanent injury or facing serious jail time. That's why the gang are headed to Bangkok, Thailand to cause ninety minutes worth of international incidents. Here's the official synopsis for the movie: "In the follow-up to the record-breaking hit comedy “The Hangover,” Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined." The always dependable (if slightly cheesy) "Entertainment Tonight" paid a visit to the set, and gave us a glimpse of the kind of insanity we're in store for when The Hangover 2 opens in theaters May 26th.

Sookie Goes To Electric Fairy Land In 'True Blood' Clip

Fairy Land looks like a really high-end Olive Garden. [post-album postid="30873" item="5"] If you ended True Blood" season three by being all, "Aww, what the fuh?!!," when Sookie zapped off to the Fairy Realm, HBO has your back. They just released the first three minutes of of the season four premiere that picks up where the last season left off. Sookie is beamed into a high-end Olvie Garden where everyone is eating light bulbs and having a good time. And Lumbergh is there. Sounds trippy but it's pretty mild by "True Blood" standards. I mean nobody gets their head bashed into goo while being sodomized. Are the writers even trying anymore??


'True Blood' Teaser Pours One Out For The Fallen Homies

Everybody dies. Again. This teaser for the final season of True Blood takes a look back at some of the fine folks we've lost along the way. The ones that didn't get eaten or explode into goo at least. However, it also takes a look forward to remind us that this is the final season which means it should be even more batsh*t than usual. Just how crazy can this blood-drenched soft-core porn that has already scarred our brains irreparably get? We can't wait to find out.


‘True Blood’ Season Four Teaser Offers More Of The Sexy Same

It's been a while since "True Blood" aired, so if you remember it being a legal drama, this teaser will remind you it's not. The teaser trailer for season 4 of "True Blood" has hit the Internet, and it's sole purpose appears to be reminding everyone what "True Blood" is all about, including, but not limited to: soap opera-style rivlalries, shirtless dudes, sassy Sookie, and a bunch of people punching each other. Also, Jason appears to be tortured in bed, and not in a sexual way. The clip is soundtracked by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, in case you needed another selling point. Enjoy the sweaty beautiful people and catch the season premiere on HBO, June 26th, and 9PM.


‘True Blood’ Season 4 Trailer Brings On The Witches

Just like 'Shrek Forever After'. With the fourth season of"True Blood" gearing up to show us naked dead things on June 26th, HBO has released this trailer. And much like Shrek's fourth adventure, this time there are witches. But that's not all that's coming to Bon Temps. We also see what we've all come to love about the show. Vampires trying to repair their image in the post-Russell Edgerton world, blood-covered sex, non-blood-covered sex, panther sex, shape-shifter sex, and strippers. Just like all the best Snoop Dogg videos. I never thought I'd say it, but I can't hardly wait to watch all of this blood-covered sex with panthers. **screams "Hurry up!!" at Kittens Wearing Glasses wall calendar**


John Oliver, Nick Offerman, And Jon Benjamin Make Fun Of Home Depot And Lowe's

There's so much to make fun of! Last Week Tonight with John Oliver has so far made its biggest inroads with his weekly rants have gone viral. Every week's a different topic, and in light of the approaching holiday season, he got together some comedy heavyweights to skewer Lowe's, Home Depot, OSH, and those other gargantuan home improvement stores. The whole thing kicks off with a discussion of OSH's use of robots to assist customers, and the conceit gets funnier from there. Watch Nick Offerman and Jon Benjamin show those corporate bigwigs what's what.


'Trust' Reminds Us All Of The Dangers Of Sexting

After viewing this trailer, it would appear that Dateline adapted their "To Catch a Predator" series into a suspense thriller. After viewing the newest trailer for Trust, it would appear that Dateline adapted their "To Catch a Predator" series into a suspense thriller. Clive Owen and Catherine Keener play the parents of a 14 year-old who gets an Internet boyfriend who is not what he claims to be. The trailer does a good job of making me want to know more about who this guy is. Is he 49 years-old? Does he just have one big eye in his forehead? I guess we'll have to pay to find out. As trite as the subject matter could be, I'm hopeful that with this cast, Trust will stand the test of time better than other Internet-based thrillers such as The Net and Disclosure. The real wildcard here is David Schwimmer, who directs. His only other feature work was Run, Fatboy, Run, which didn't exactly wow audiences with its deft direction, but the trailer seems to be cohesive (and cryptic) enough that audiences will want to pull at this thread. My guesses for who the online predator is (in descending order of likelihood): Channing Tatum Marcel, the monkey from "Friends" Clint Howard


The Rest Of 'True Blood' Season 4 Looks Craaaazy

Everyone's killing or humping one another. Sometimes both. [post-album postid="218554" item="1"]Looks like all the set up going on in the recent episodes of  True Blood is going to pay off in major ways. HBO whipped up the above trailer for Comic-Con and, holy shit. Holy shit, you guys. Explosions, witches kicking vampire ass, Sookie getting guns pointed at her at least 25 times (estimate), Jessica being all horny and hungry, and Sookie and Eric knocking boots. These events are going to take my creepy fan fiction to a whole 'nother level.


Michael Mann Shares A Grizzled First Look At HBO’s ‘Luck’

It's fun to see all these accomplished actors dressed like the degenerates at the OTB. Luck - In Production - Watch more Funny Videos If you're a fan of HBO's "Deadwood" you have reason to open the peaches. Here's a first look at "Luck," the new HBO series from "Deadwood" writer David Milch and Heat director Michael Mann. The horse racing drama stars Dustin Hoffman as an organized crime kingpin with a penchant for kicking over tables, and Nick Nolte gets his twelfth shot at career redemption in the role of a broken-down Kentucky horse trainer given a second chance at redemption. Anyway, it looks great. Particularly the horse-racing scenes. The crew have found really inventive ways to get up in the action. Finally, we can feel the thrill of being a jockey without having to suffer the ridicule of being four-feet tall.


'True Blood' Season 4 Preview Features Dazed Shirtless Dude

The video says he's "confused," but really Eric is just pretending to be cool while girls ogle his shirtlessness via the YouTube. Yeah, whatever guy. Here's a new preview from the upcoming season four of HBO's strange series "True Blood," featuring Alexander Skarsgard (Generation Kill) as vampire Eric Northman. The video says he's "dazed," but really Eric is just pretending to be cool while girls ogle his shirtlessness via the YouTube. Yeah, whatever guy. "True Blood" fans get really upset when you confuse their beloved sexy vampire show with Twilight. Yet not only are they both about sexy vampires, but they also both seem to prominently feature ripped shirtless guys. I guess that's the one thing all the fangirls can agree on, before the Team Edwarders call the Bloodheads "whores" and the Truehards call the Twihards "prissy little emo wannabes." Settle down, goth ladies. "True Blood" Season Four swoops onto your TV this summer. (Vulture)
