While Ashton Kutcher might look like the former Apple CEO more, I’m pretty confident this latest film about the innovator’s life will be better received commercially and critically. The pedigree behind Steve Jobs is nothing short of stellar. Michael Fassbender plays the titular role while Kate Winslet (Joanna Hoffman), Seth Rogen (Steve Wozniak) and Jeff Daniels (John Sculley) appear in supporting roles.
Set backstage at three iconic product launches and ending in 1998 with the unveiling of the iMac, Steve Jobs takes us behind the scenes of the digital revolution to paint an intimate portrait of the brilliant man at its epicenter.
The first official teaser trailer doesn’t reveal much in terms of plot. Instead it shows Fassbender wearing Jobs’ signature black turtleneck while voiceovers play in the background. “You can’t write code, you are not an engineer,” a man says. Jobs replies, “The musicians play the instruments. I play the orchestra.” Oh snap!!!
Steve Jobs hits theaters on October 9. Check out the clip below.
Even if you didn’t watch Kanye West’s much-reviled “Bound 2” music video featuring Kim Kardashian, you’ll appreciate this. While filming his new film The Interview, Seth Rogen called upon James Franco to reenact the now-infamous video, shot for shot. From simulating sex on a motorcycle to passionately locking lips, Rogen and Franco engage in everything Kimye does. It’s definitely a must-see. Check it out below.
Comedy Central aired its Roast of James Franco on Monday night. I finally got around to watching it last night and as expected, it was a hilarious affair. How could it not be with Jonah Hill, Sarah Silverman, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader, Aziz Ansari, Nick Kroll, Jeff Ross, Natasha Leggero and Roastmaster Seth Rogen on hand serving some major zingers.
All of them took their shots at the Pineapple Express actor as well as on each other. As expected, his Oscar hosting stint and sexual ambiguity were quite popular topics. What was surprising though was the lack of drug-related jokes given Franco’s stoner-like expressions. However, his signature squint was a huge target. Check out some of my favorite insults below, along with several clips from the special.
When I first saw the movie still of Zac Efron shirtless, I was already sold on Neighbors. As it turns out, the movie actually looks pretty hilarious based on the film’s first red band trailer.
Directed by Nick Stoller, the man behind Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek, Neighbors finds Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne playing a married couple living happily in their quiet suburban neighborhood. That is until Efron along with his frat brothers including Dave Franco move in right beside them. What ensues is an outrageous feud between the two neighbors. Rogen and Efron pull out every prank in the book to one up the other. The car air bag scene will have you laughing.
Neighbors arrives in North American theaters in May 2014. Jake Johnson, Lisa Kudrow, and Halston Sage also star in the film. Check out the trailer below, along with a TV spot featuring Rogen and a shirtless Efron.
“Hermoine just stole our sh*t.” Based on that line alone, I’m sooooo seeing this. After releasing a faux Pineapple Express 2 movie trailer on April Fools’ Day to promote This Is The End, Seth Rogen drops an actual one for it. It’s the second red band trailer for his on-screen reunion with James Franco.
“This Is The End” features all the actors playing fictional versions of themselves. They congregate at Franco’s house for a kick ass house party. Given that it’s a gathering in Hollywood, expect a few celebrities to pop in. Rihanna, Aziz Ansari, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Paul Rudd and Mindy Kaling all partake in the festivities. Rihanna even slaps Cera after he makes the moves on her.
During the party, as luck would have it, the end of the world happens. One by one people start dropping dead. Rihanna gets swallowed up by the earth and Cera gets lanced by a light post. An axe-wielding Emma Watson also makes an appearance in the flick. Check out the brand new trailer featuring some violence and lots of references to titty f**king.
Almost everyone panned James Franco for his Oscar co-hosting duties last year. Even his performance as the titular wizard in OZ: The Great and Powerful earned mixed reviews. On the flip side, the 34-year-old actor has been universally praised for playing the pot-smoking Saul Silver in Pineapple Express. His real-life persona lends itself really well to that role. He always looks like he’s on a permanent high. LOL. It only makes sense that Franco revisit his well-received character.
A brand new red band trailer debuted online earlier today for Pineapple Express 2. I had no idea a sequel was even in the works. Turns out I was correct. The movie trailer is actually an April Fools’ Day joke. In the clip, Seth Rogen and Franco are instructed to kill Woody Harrelson. The faux movie trailer also serves as a promotional clip for Rogen’s upcoming summer flick, This Is The End. Check out the video after the jump.
New Girl, The New Normal and The Mindy Project are all back from their respective winter breaks with brand new episodes tonight. Halleloo. I need a good laugh today. To commemorate its return, I thought I’d share a picture of Allison Williams‘ (Girls) guest appearance on tonight’s show and breaking casting news of a major movie star heading to the FOX sitcom next month.
On the February 19 episode titled, “The One That Got Away,” we find our favorite gynecologist heroine reuniting with a former flame named Sam. The two reminisce about their time at Jewish summer camp (LOL) and begin to rekindle their summer teen romance. Rumor has it, Sam was her first kiss. Can’t you already hear one of Katy Perry’s songs playing in the background. Find out who’s playing Sam below. Here’s a hint. He’s played a super hero in a major motion picture in the past couple of years. Find out who below.
The latest Seth Rogen comedy hits theaters this week, and I am pleased to say that I was totally surprised at how much I enjoyed this movie. The film pairs Rogen and Barbara Streisand in a oddball mother/son road trip that is full of the goofy scenarios that you would expect from such a pair.
Andrew Brewster (Rogen) is an organic chemist trying to sell his newly invented cleaning product to stores and companies across the country without much success. After visiting his mother, he decides to invite her along for the ride as he travels across the country so that he can surprise her at the end by introducing her to her long lost love. The movie’s plot line is predictable, the funny situations are expected but honestly, it doesn’t matter. This movie is such a lighthearted fun film that I had fun from start to end.
