Hope you weren't already packed up and ready to visit the theater for that "National Lampoon's Vacation" reboot because the weather report on the project just took a turn for the worse.
Oh no, Sparky!
Just a month ago, New Line was able to wrangle in series old-timers Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo for a much-needed cameo in the film. The reboot would star Ed Helms as their all-grown-up son Rusty and Christina Applegate as his wife, but apparently that wasn't quite enough to move the project forward. Get More »
All good things must come to an end — unless, of course, you're talking about James Bond. But for every other beloved film franchise, there's inevitably a final installment. And for fans of one of the 21st century's most popular comedy series, that moment is here at last thanks to the brand new YouTube trailer for "The Hangover Part III."
The Wolfpack is back, baby! Get More »
Audreys and Rustys tended to come and go (as Old Navy reminded us this winter) over the years, but Clark and Ellen kept the family afloat all four movies. So, major snaps to the gang trying to reboot these tales of traveling woes for wrangling in the duo for a cameo. Get More »
What, was Anthony Michael Hall not available?
Russell 'Rusty' Griswold is all grown up and looking a lot like Ed Helms as the "Hangover" star will be hitting the holiday road this summer to shoot a new sequel to "National Lampoon's Vacation."
Rusty is, of course, the son of original "Vacation" patriarch Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase), a character played by no less than four different actors in previous "Vacation" installments: Anthony Michael Hall in "Vacation" (1983), Jason Lively in "European Vacation" (1985), Johnny Galecki in "Christmas Vacation" (1989) and Ethan Embry in "Vegas Vacation" (1997). In this new "Vacation," he'll be taking his own family on a road trip that's bound to have a few ... complications. Get More »
Before this, all we had was that hellishly vague synopsis which read, "This time, there's no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off."
Thanks to the new vid, though, a couple of things are now clear. Get More »
Here's hoping Sasha Barrese has a very patient designated driver, because according to Variety, she's just signed on for her third "Hangover."
And this one promises to provide 100 proof laughs.
This week: In "Project X," a teenage house party goes viral, and the neighborhood watches helplessly as things get explosive.
Other new DVD releases include the funny, warm-hearted "Jeff, Who Lives at Home," the fish-out-of-water comedy "Wanderlust" with Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston, and the Blu-ray debut of Christian Bale in "Newsies." Get More »
After all that debauchery in Las Vegas for "The Hangover" and the following ruckus in Bangkok for the sequel, we've been really scratching our heads over where Todd Phillips and his wolfpack trio will head to next for "The Hangover Part III." Turns out, they'll be taking a trip to Tijuana.
According to Life & Style Mag, the Mexican city has been plucked to host "one wild week" for the boys — Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper — while Las Vegas will be used again for the "crazy scenes." Otherwise, the movie will be shot mostly on location in Los Angeles. Get More »
You can try coffee, Alka-Seltzer, or a Bloody Mary, but to recover from his "Hangover," actor Ed Helms likes to unwind playing Appalachian-style bluegrass music. While it may seem like a weird vanity project or attempt to give his pal Steve Martin a run for his money, Dr. Stu Price can actually pluck a mean banjo.
Ed Helms and the Lonesome Trio started as he and Oberlin College classmates Jacob Tilove and Ian Riggs began pickin' tunes for fun in their dorm, but now two decades later they're making it official as The Hollywood Reporter says the group will cut an actual bona fide album. Get More »
Jeff (Jason Segel) is a 30-year-old man living in his mom's basement. He doesn't work, and all his mom wants is for him to fix a broken wooden blind. He just wants to smoke a lot of pot and watch his favorite movie, M. Night Shyamalan's "Signs."
Writer-directors (and brothers!) Jay and Mark Duplass are best known as part of the Mumblecore generation, producing low-budget films with amateur actors, using loads of handheld shakycam. They garnered enough attention that they could cast name actors in their 2010 film, "Cyrus." Now, with their new movie "Jeff, Who Lives at Home," they've graduated to even higher-profile fare. There's a reason these two indie-turned-studio-filmmakers are in demand now: They know how to tell a good story, and they do so again with the sweetly comic "Jeff." Get More »
