James Gunn’s post-‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ mystery movie is finally revealed

Before James Gunn brought into the world his entertaining vision of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy — and was unceremoniously dumped by Disney following a bad faith character assassination — he made horror movies. Good, messed up horror movies like Slither. In the time since his Disney separation, noisy speculation has been building around Brightburn, a Sony Pictures release that reunites Gunn with Slither star Elizabeth Banks. But what is it? Many have guessed that Brightburn is just a codename, and Gunn has been working on a video game adaptation.…

A lot of us have that one movie we’ve seen so many times that we know every detail of every scene.  For Mary Queen of Scots star Saoirse Ronan, that movie is apparently the 2011 comedy classic Bridesmaids, starring Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and Melissa McCarthy.  On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon tested Ronan’s knowledge of the movie and it turns out she remembers every. Little. Detail. Details like the nickname given to the flight attendant (“Stove. He’s an appliance,”) and which cast members were roommates in real life (Rebel…

George H.W. Bush receives a loving tribute from ‘Saturday Night Live’ and Dana Carvey

Former president George H.W. Bush died on Friday, and Saturday Night Live took a moment the next evening to pay tribute. The Weekend Update sketch paused to air a montage of Dana Carvey impersonations of the former president. Carvey’s legendary Bush Sr. impression has no equal, and it became such a fixture of pop culture during the ’90s that Bush Sr. himself once got on camera to spar with the SNL alum. You can see that moment, along with a bunch of other classic Carvey moments, in the montage here.…

‘Artemis Fowl’ comes to life in Disney’s teaser trailer

Disney is making the 2001 novel Artemis Fowl into a movie and honestly it’s surprising that it took this long considering Hollywood’s rapacious appetite for adapting popular books into films. Artemis Fowl‘s first teaser trailer gives us quick glimpses at the fantastical world, including the titular criminal boy himself, the fairy he kidnaps for ransom money, and some of the expansive underground dwellings that are hidden away from most of the human race. To add to the somber vibe of the movie, we’ve got some nice Radiohead music to go…

‘Deadpool 2’ PG-13 edit gets a twisted, family-friendly trailer

What’s better than a Deadpoolsequel? Two sequels, with different ratings, out in the same year! Once Upon A Deadpool will revisit Deadpool 2 “filtered through the prism of childlike innocence” – a.k.a. edited to fit a PG-13 rating. Once Upon A Deadpool frames the previously explicit movie as a bedtime story Deadpool reads to Fred Savage – you know, like The Princess Bride. However, as Savage is quick to note, he’s an adult man now, and the gimmick doesn’t have the same heartwarming, family-friendly feeling (Deadpool has him tied up).…

Steve Carell became Amazon’s Jeff Bezos to troll Donald Trump on ‘SNL’

Saturday Night Live saved its best Donald Trump jokes for guest host Steve Carell. While the latest episode’s cold open sketch ripped Trump’s favorite propaganda network, Fox News, Carell put on a bald cap and transformed himself into Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos. His three-minute message is ostensibly a broad overview of where Amazon is at now that its HQ2 locations in New York and northern Virginia have been selected. But really, this video is just an extended string of Trump burns, targeting his hair, his Twitter addiction, his…

Steve Carell’s ‘SNL’ NASA broadcast goes terribly wrong after a breach

Saturday Night Live’s Captain Ed McGovern (Steve Carell) thought live streaming to children’s classrooms across America from the International Space Station would be great. It was not. After an unfortunate breach in the system left all the monkeys (and one cat) on-board frozen solid and flying around, things got a bit hectic. And while we’re pretty sure no amount of space puns or jokes could distract from a frozen Russian woman flying outside the spacecraft, that doesn’t stop McGovern from trying We “Apollo-gize” for the horrors you’re about to see.…
