We’re only a week into summer movie season, and it’s already overloaded with superheroes. More excitement is coming too, as Hollywood rolls out what are expected to be its biggest hits this time ever year. There's no shortage of comedies this summer, as Batman and Spider-man will be duking it out at the box office with the likes of Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, and, um, Wes Anderson.
What's in store for us comedy wise? The return of the Men in Black! A movie based on a pregnancy guidebook! A comedy based on a novel by Saddam Hussein! And a comedy that had to change its name because of the [...]
Jonah Hill seems legitimately shocked that 21 Jump Street is good and funny. It's a little disconcerting! But even more unsettling is the absolute MYSTERY he presents of going to sleep in boxers and waking up in a formal top half, dress shoes and no pants. Or as he amazingly calls it, Donald Ducking. Parts 2 and 3 of the interview below.
After watching these SNL promos with Jonah Hill and Bill Hader, I absolutely want to move to Jump Street. It sounds like everyone there's just walking around holding freshly cut flowers, wearing stylish men's hats, drinking bubble tea. In other words, it is a paradise.

Seems a bit like putting the sequel cart before the movie horse, if you know what I mean. But if things like focus groups and press screenings can give a studio a good enough idea of how the movie will do in theaters even before it's released to know whether a sequel is called for, more power to them. And their terrifying, ticket-sale predicting powers of clairvoyance. (Someone write a movie about that! And then immediately [...]
Lorne Michaels is the guest on Alec Baldwin’s Here The Thing podcast this week (which if you haven’t listened to yet, what are you doing reading this because it is exactly the type of thing you would like) and on it, Baldwin runs down a list of this season’s SNL guests and, intentionally or not, reveals two yet to be announced hosts: Jonah Hill and Justin Bieber.
Jonah Hill has hosted before, back in March 2008, but skinny Jonah Hill has not. Over/under three jokes about this?
But who cares about that old nerd anyway? The Biebs, who was the musical guest for the April 10th, 2010 show, [...]
