“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.
Princess Leia watch out. There’s a new HBIC (head bitch in charge) in town. Emma Stone donned on ear mufflers to mimic the Star Wars heroine for a new parody. The “Easy A” actress was one of many celebrities to take part in the latest campaign for “Stand Up 2 Cancer“- a charitable organization to raise awareness for cancer research. Stone’s comic abilities definitely shine in the video.
Joining Stone in the clip are Seth Rogen, Aziz Ansari, Zach Galifianakis, Bill Hader, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, Jaime King and Samuel L. Jackson. The celebs either recite and recreate infamous scenes or mimic a few of the memorable characters. Hands down my favorite is Bill Hader’s impression of Tauntaun. It’ll have you on the floor laughing (if you’re a Stars Wars geek like me). If you want to fast forward to it, it begins at 1:50. As always, Ken Jeong also provides a couple of laughs. The “Hangover” star takes on Vader and Lando Calrissian.
Ex-Disney star Zac Efron has been working overtime to shake his bubblegum-pop image after living in the shadow of High School Musical for so long. He took baby steps by joining the cast of Hairspray and then jumped onto the comedy train with 17 Again. He followed that up with the dark and dramatic Charlie St. Cloud and will show us his military skills in the upcoming The Lucky One. Now, Zac is officially jumping out of his previous shadow by joining forces with Seth Rogen for an upcoming untitled R-Rated comedy.
While doing an R-Rated comedy isn’t a far cry for Mr. Rogen, it’ll be great to see these two play off of each other. We know that Zac has great comedy chops from 17 Again so it’ll be great to see him use these skills on this film. The concept puts Efron in the frat boy role who lives a frat house which is a few houses down from Rogen’s house. As a result, Rogen’s life is turned upside down. Sounds like it good be a winner, like a new Old School maybe? I personally can’t wait to hear more about this as it develops. R-Rated comedies have been hot this summer with the likes of Bridesmaids and Horrible Bosses making waves at the box office.
ALRIGHT! I’m going to be completely honest in this and say that I really had absolute no idea of the back story of The Green Hornet. Not to be confused with The Green Lantern (which comes out later this year), The Green Hornet is a superhero movie starring Seth Rogen. The reason I put a question mark after superhero is because I’m not really sure if The Green Hornet is a superhero. I think he is more of a masked vigilante kinda guy…yeah let’s go with that.
This movie stars Seth Rogen in his VERY publicized “slimming down” role. This guy lost weight for this movie, so that generated buzz. Now while I admit that Seth Rogen is funny, I kind of always felt that he plays the same character; the stoner funny rambles on kind of guy so I wasn’t sure how he would be in the iconic role.
Talk about vindication. Conan O’Brien’s first night on the job brought in boffo ratings for the basic cable network. Roughly 4.2 million viewers tuned in to watch “Conan” on TBS. Not only did in bring huge numbers, but it delivered a median age of 30. Those are the kind of numbers, executives love to see. The premiere easily beat out his competitors including “The Late Show with David Letterman“, “The Tonight Show“, “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report“. It also gave a huge lead-in to “Lopez Tonight”, probably giving that show it’s highest numbers ever. President of Turner Entertainment Networks released the following statement:
“Conan’s audience has been very vocal online, and he clearly made a smooth transition from Twitter to TBS.. Conan delivered an extraordinary audience and stands out as the youngest talk show on television.”
I’m 100% certain sometime this morning Conan and his crew were having mimosas to celebrate their victory. On the flip side, somewhere in LA, Jay Leno and NBC execs were drowning their sorrows in some greasy Denny’s breakfast. Conan’s first guests on his new show were Seth Rogen, “Glee’s” Lea Michele with musical guest Jack White. Tonight, Conan will welcome guests Tom Hanks, Jack McBrayer and Soundgarden. Upcoming guests include Jon Hamm, Fistful of Mercy and Charlyne Yi on Wednesday; and Michael Cera, Julie Bowen and Jon Dore on Thursday.
