In the ongoing press run for Anchorman 2, Will Ferrell touches on the hip hop community's love for the movie. In fact, I'm pretty sure communities of all kinds love Anchorman, but Will is specifically marveled at how the characters and lines have been referenced in rap songs for the past decade. That should only continue after the release of the second movie on December 18th.
Ferrell also laughably brings up "N words in Paris" so stay tuned through to the end of this quick 2 minute clip for that.
The cameos they talk about as well (apparently there are a ton in one scene) will also feature Drake & Kanye, in case you forgot.
All-new scenes in the all-new 2:30 trailer above. No previews yet of Kanye & Drake's cameos, but they're not needed to laugh hysterically for the next two and a half minutes. It will certainly be a Merry Christmas.
An interesting movie tidbit hit the newswire today as the lead role in Elysium played by Matt Damon, could have been for Eminem.
Wired is reporting that Matt Damon was the third choice for the lead as Eminem was first, followed by Die Antwoord's Ninja. Em clearly ended up declining the role, as the report cites he only would have said yes if the filming took place in his (now-bankrupt :-/) hometown of Detroit.
If Em ever decides to go back to the big screen, I hope it'll be as big of a smash as 8 Mile (and he was a great actor in it, too.) #Top5FavoriteMovies
Now this news honestly grabbed my attention more for Dumb And Dumber To (yes, it's purposefully spelled that way... love it.) because this sequel is that much closer to being real. After connecting the dots and realizing Empire Of The Sun's biggest hit is the recognizable "Walking On A Dream" above, I feel like their music and sound will be a great fit to the zany adventures Lloyd and Harry are bound to get into. And yes, Lloyd and Harry will be reprised by Jim Carrey & Jeff Daniels! The early glimpse at the premise already sounds amazing.
20 years after the dimwits set out on their first adventure, they head out in search of one of their long lost children in the hope of gaining a new kidney.
And because I had to...
Me, when the Dumb & Dumber sequel was first announced
Ashton Kutcher will be starring as Apple visionary Steve Jobs in the much-anticipated and talked about movie Jobs, set to release this August. Today, we get the first glimpse of Kutcher as Jobs and all of the drama and storyline "inspired by true events". Plus, the intriguing trailer is set to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Can't Hold Us". What do you think of the first look trailer??
Hoffa Bee continues his 'Election Day Campaign' and releases a new record called “Kill Bill.” This is definitely catered towards those who love the green leaf if you know what we mean. On this record we have Hoffa’s signature laid back flow and quality bars over a dope whistling sample from the movie "Kill Bill".
Ed Helms and Kristen Wiig's roles, and the plot as a whole, are now revealed. And before I start rambling about how excited I am, I'll shut up so you can just press play and kick off your day with a few laughs. 1 more reason why Christmas will be awesome this year!
starring Leonardo DiCaprio directed by Martin Scorsese
More Yeezus is upon us — this time crossing over into high-profile upcoming movies. Namely the upcoming Scorsese film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey, and Jonah Hill (you may have heard of them) — The Wolf of Wall Street. "Black Skinhead" is the appropriate backdrop to the new trailer above and between that and the premise below, I'm pretty intrigued to see this film in November.
In The Wolf of Wall Street, DiCaprio would play Belfort, a Long Island penny stockbroker who served 20 months in prison for refusing to cooperate in a massive 1990s securities fraud case that involved widespread corruption on Wall Street and in the corporate banking world, including mob infiltration.
Shoutout to the hilarious people at CinemaSins, whose most recent countdown of movie sins instantly appealed to me: the 1995 movie Mortal Kombat. In the early 90s, Mortal Kombat the video game took the world, and elementary school students like me, by storm. So much so that they took it to Hollywood for what has aged over time as one of the most unintentionally hilarious movies of all-time. In fact, I think CinemaSins should change the title from "wrongs in 7 minutes or less" to "bonus points in 7 minutes or less". Whether or not you have seen the movie, this one is an entertaining and hilarious watch above. Love the sarcasm and little things they point out, which they also carry out to many other films on their channel. Great stuff to start off your Saturday/movie-watching weekend with a laugh.
