The first official theatrical trailer for the much-anticipated Anchorman 2 sequel has finally hit the internet!!
We may not get to see any actual scenes from the movie, but what we do get to see are the men of our favourite news team being reintroduced to the world! They just want to say hello, and they all do it in their own personal, hysterical way…even Brick, who gets a little confused about the assignment.
Watch the trailer and GET EXCITED for the return being compared to that of McArthur, Jay-Z and even Jesus!
Oh, and don’t forget to stay classy!!
Your prayers have been heard and answered. Pixar will release a sequel to Finding Nemo, titled Finding Dory. The voice behind our favourite blue tang fish, Ellen Degeneres, was the first to spill the beans via her Instagram this morning.
The movie has been in planning stages for a white, but Degeneres said, “I’m not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating Toy Story 16.”
The film will reportedly revolve around Marlin and Nemo one year after the events of Finding Nemo. With Dory slated as the lead, this will be Pixar’s second ever movie to feature a female protagonist, the first being last year’s Brave.
This movie will probably attract all the young adults who have been waiting for this sequel for years. I know I’ll be standing in line hours before showtime on opening night. No shame.
Finding Dory is slated for release on November 25, 2015.
Animator Mark Parsons is back with a new instalment of the Adventurous Adventures of One Direction 2. YAY!
in his little intro before the actual video (which is dedicated to Zayn: “Ain’t nobody as dope as you”), Parsons explains the background of this new video. He received letter from two fans after his first AAoOD video asking him to pretty much animate a fanfic story line for them.
Well, lucky for the Natalie and Sarah (the two fans who wrote to Parsons) he did and they are now cartoon dating Niall and Harry.
To be fair, at the time of writing this, I only got through the beginning (the video is a half an hour long), but so far it’s pretty funny. I’d totally be friends with cartoon Harry. I also totally agree with cartoon Louis and Liam that the Louis doll is kind of scary. Here’s what doll Louis looks like in real life:
Anyways, make sure to tell us what you think!

The Hunger Games movie was a major box office success, but will the sequel be as equally successul? ”Catching Fire” Features the 22-year-old series star Jennifer Lawrence and 20-year-old Josh Hutcherson as Katniss and Peeta, with the addition of Sam Claflin as Finnick Odair (You can check out the full cast list here!).
Today, Entertainment Weekly released the cover for this weeks print edition. The first image features Jennifer Lawrence and Sam Claflin in their battle attire (see above image). And the second photograph features the two getting up-close and personal! (image below)
The sequel “Catching Fire” is wrapping up production in Waikiki, Hawaii, and will hit theatres on Nov. 1st, 2013!
Kids of the ’90s, prepare to celebrate.
Because word on the street is, Disney’s in early talks to develop a remake of Boy Meets World , the classic coming-of-age sitcom that melted our hearts between 1993 and 2001.
According to TVLine, The Disney Channel is planning on a sequel series called, Girl Meets World, which will focus on the pre-teen daughter of Cory and Topanga (aka BEST COUPLE EVER). And because the show is only at its early stages, sources are saying that the cable network is trying to land original series stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel to reprise their roles!! However, no word yet on whether Cory’s best friend Shawn (Rider Strong) or brother Eric (Will Friedle) will be coming back.
Fans of the show will remember the couple getting married during the college years and moving to New York City so Topanga can live out her dream of being a lawyer. And while her and Cory may already have a happy-ever-after, it’ll be awesome to see what their daughter will be like!!
What do you think?? Personally, the 90s kid in me is freaking out with excitement. So for good measure, here’s the theme song!
I can’t help it. Listening to the jibberish squeals of Gru’s minions as they try to sing the Beach Boys’ “Barbara Ann” makes me go “d’aww.”
The new trailer for the sequel to Steve Carell’s Despicable Me has three of the yellow aliens combining harmonies and the fourth playing the noisemaker.
But don’t get too excited. We still have to wait until 2013 until the movie is released.
‘Blue Crush 2,’ the highly anticipated sequel to the 2002 smash ‘Blue Crush’ starring Kate Bosworth and Michelle Rodriguez, was released on June 7 and I had the pleasure of sitting down with some of the cast and the director.
I meet Sasha Jackson and Ben Milliken, two of the film’s stars, and director Mike Elliot at ‘Hotel Le Germaine’ in Toronto. It’s clear they’re doing well for themselves, I mean, the hotel is swanky.
The first thing I tell them is that the movie actually surprised me – it was fun and, unlike many sequels, not horrible.
“Did you like it? Because we haven’t seen it yet,” says Jackson.
That must drive you crazy, I say. Imagine yourself being recorded and broadcast to a global audience without approving it. Terrifying right? To make matters worse, Jackson says she can’t stand to watch herself on screen.
“I don’t watch it as it’s me, I never have. But I will notice when I look like, ugly in a scene,” says Jackson. “I’m not good of an actress.”
Jackson has no reason to be tough on herself, though. The budding actress has appeared in everything from ‘One Tree Hill’ to larger film roles that are in the works.
Milliken, though, seems a little less used to fame. Well, at least according to director Elliot, who jokingly berates him for admitting he’s married. “Ben, you’re not supposed to let the little girls out there know that you’re married. The fantasy has to be maintained.”
“I’m terrible at this whole thing,” Milliken says.
As we continue the chat, Jackson admits that she had never been on a surfboard before the film and found it rather difficult to shoot the scenes she did.
“Every time you see me stand up and come off the board, that’s me. Not fall off the board, but [laughs] yes. Every time you see me fall and nearly die, that’s me.”
As hilarious as the first movie was, I didn’t have high hopes for this film. Sequels are never as good as the originals, and in this case, I predicted that the film would be the exact same format and journey the ‘Wolfpack’ took in the first film. I was correct.
Let’s get the plot out of the way, though. This time around, right after the bachelor party in Las Vegas, Phil, Stu, Alan, and Doug jet to Thailand for Stu’s wedding. Stu’s plan for a subdued bachelor party, however, goes seriously awry when they wake up the next morning. In a hotel. In Bangkok.
Of course, out-of-this-world revelations are discovered throughout the movie, such as face tattoos and missing body parts. Funny things happen. People die. But the film is almost exactly the same as the first; they wake up, someone is missing, they try to find him, then funny things happen. The end.
The film tends to push the envelope even further this time around (I won’t give anything away, but it’s definitely up there in shock-factor.) I will say the movie definitely delivers on that front, providing even more shocking and crazy situations. But aside the shocking moment or two, the film really is the same bag of tricks at the first one.
I know, I know, what did I expect from the flick? An oscar-worthy plot line? But they could have at least come up with some new material. Hey, it if it worked the first time, I guess they’ll keep milking it while they can.
Of course, Zach Galifianakis’ character Alan saves the film with his off-beat humour and very, very stupid comments. He is worth the price of admission alone.
So if you’re looking for a good laugh or to be entertained, by all means see the film. It’s a great movie to see with your friends. But don’t expect to be blown away or to laugh harder than the first film, because you won’t.
In fact, you’ll laugh less, unless you’re the kind of person who can watch something 80,000 times and laugh at it every time. I give the movie 3 out of 5 stars, just because it made me laugh a few times and delivered what I expected it to.
Will Ferrell broke the bad news that “Anchorman 2″ is unlikely to ever happen. Ferrell told Entertainment Weekly that the studio is not loving the idea, despite the enthusiasm of the cast.
“Well, you know, yeah, it’s a little peculiar,” Ferrell, 43, told EW. “On the one hand, [we were] being begged to do a sequel for such a long time, and then we finally came up with a concept that we liked, we talked to all the guys, and everyone was up for it. And then to get the reaction we got, yeah, it’s slightly puzzling to us. But you know what? It’s also their money. They get to do or not do whatever they want. So we’ll see. We’re still going back and forth. Maybe there is a solution. Or, I know in talking to [co-writer/director Adam McKay], if it never happens, then it never happens. And that’s fine, too. So we’ll just see.”
No doubt “Anchorman” was funny, but do you think it really needs a sequel? Is there really anything to build on?
It looks like the next Avatar movie may see the light of day as early as 2014!
Cameron is in the process of writing the next two movies and reports that he is “planning to shoot them together and post them together.” This means both movies will be done at the same time, but their releases will be staggered for around Christmas 2014 and 2015.
Cameron also divulged that all of the characters from the first movie would most likely appear in the upcoming films. “Basically, if you survived the first film, you get to be in the second film, at least in some form,” he explained.
Fox has partnered with the director to donate a large chunk of the movie’s profits to environmental causes.
The first film was basically the plot of Pocahontas, so we can’t wait to see what Disney movie Cameron rips off next! We’ve got our fingers crossed for a blue-ified High School Musical or Old Yeller!
The first remake has been out less than two weeks and they’re already planning its sequel.
According to PerezHilton, the Warner/New Line’s remake of the classic horror film Nightmare on Elm Street (that was just released on April 30) has already got the go-ahead for a 3D sequel.
Warner distribution president Dan Fellman said, “We don’t have a story yet, but this is the largest horror opening in the April-May corridor, and it just proves there’s a lot left in the franchise.”
Don’t fall asleep!
Did anyone even know a sequel was a possibility?
Regardless, perezhilton.com reports that a Zoolander sequel has been axed by Paramount Pictures. Turns out the studio does not want to fund the film, and apparently it’s not just Derek Zoolander that is not feeling the love.
Ben Stiller, the Blue Steel man himself, took to his Twitter account to break the news, tweeting: “Ron Burgundy and Derek Zoolander looking to appear in sequels. Both men destitute, without means or intellect to fund their own comebacks.”
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m more saddened by the refusal to fund a second Anchorman. Afternoon delight!
The glamorous women of Sex and the City jetted to Las Vegas last night – well all of them, but one. Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin David and Cynthia Nixon were all in Sin City to accept the honour of winning this year’s Ensemble Award at ShowWest, a movie industry convention, but Kim Cattrall was nowhere to be found, according to E! Online.
This time, it is not because of gossip or a feud, she was simply busy starring in a West End production of Noel Coward’s play Private Lives, in London.
The girls joked about her absence, and expressed their fondness to the smokin’ 53-year-old actress.
“We don’t like her, so she’s gone,” Parke joked backstage. “We’ve actually been emailing with her for the last three or four hours. The next time you see us, we will be complete.”
Nixon added, “We miss her.”
“Titanic” didn’t get a sequel, but Canadian writer/director James Cameron talks of a sequel for his monster 3-D box-office hit “Avatar”. MTV News reports that earlier this month News Corp’s bigwig Rupert Murdoach announced that Fox had “very early talks” about a sequel. Avatar became the highest-grossing movie in the U.S. box-office history, beating out “Titanic”, another James Cameron directed film.
Cameron told MTV News that there are still a few kinks that need to be smoothed out before complete commitment to a sequel of the sci-fi love story.
“I’ve got some deal hurdles I got to get over with the studio before I want to emotionally embrace that,” said Cameron.
That being said, fans can still get ready for more of the world of Pandora. Cameron declined to talk about what obstacles stood in the way, not compensation-related, he assured, but said all parties involved in making the film expect a deal to be signed eventually.
“[Sequel details have] never properly been worked out, let me put it that way,” he said. “But everyone’s highly motivated. Rupert Murdoch told us we were doing it, so now they have to make a deal.”
Critics may have given thumbs down to “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” but that sure isn’t stopping fans from watching the action flick on the silver screen.
After just 14 days in theatres, the sequel to the highly successful “Transformers” raked in an impressive $300 million in U.S. ticket sales, making it second to last summers blockbuster hit “The Dark Knight” in terms of box office figures.
The first film — starring Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox — grossed $319.2 million domestically during its entire time in theatres and $700 million worldwide.
Sean “Diddy” Combs has been cast in the spin-off to the 2008 comedy “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the producer/rapper will play a record label executive in “Get Him to the Greek,” which sees the return of “Sarah Marshall” director/co-writer Nicholas Stoller and producer Judd Apatow.
Also back is Russell Brand, who will reprise his role as out-of-control rocker Aldous Snow. Rose Bryne (“Knowing,” TV’s “Damages”) will play Snow’s latest love interest, an equally wild pop star named Jackie Q.
“Dark Knight” actress Maggie Gyllenhaal is set to star opposite Emma Thompson in the “Nanny McPhee” sequel, according to Production Weekly.
The movie, tentatively titled “Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang,” will see Thompson reprise her role as the magical nanny, although there is no word yet as to what role Gyllenhaal will play.
According to Thompson, the sequel will be markedly different from the 2005 original, which took in $122 million at the worldwide box office. “It’s not a sequel, actually, it’s a new story,” she told MTV in November. “(The second film) is set one hundred years later; the only thing that is the same is Nanny McPhee.”
Mark your calendars, “Sex and the City” fans – the sequel to last summer’s hit TV show adaptation will arrive in theatres on May 28, 2010.
Variety reports that all four stars – Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon – will return, along with writer-director Michael Patrick King.
Sixteen years after “Dazed and Confused” put Matthew McConaughey on the map as the stoner-sage David Wooderson and became the gold standard of high school nostalgia comedies, writer-director Richard Linklater has written a “spritual sequel,” reports ew.com.
The story follows a group of lost boys and girls during their first weekend of college in 1980. The untitled project isn’t literally spiritual or a sequel, strictly speaking — sadly, none of the characters from the first movie will be featured in this one. But, like “Dazed,” it attempts to capture an iconic and infinitely confusing moment in a person’s life by following an ensemble of different characters through a short period of time. Much of the action takes place among the members of a college baseball team.
E! Online reported Warner Bros. has confirmed plans for a third “Tomb Raider” movie, which would feature changes for its leading character, Lara Croft according to the Hollywood Reporter. These changes will include the main character’s origin story as well as new missions, villains and love interests.
But the most notable change is a new Lara Croft. Producers have said they have not yet selected the new leading lady because they are waiting for a writer and a director to sign onto the project.
Although “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” and “Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life,” its sequel, were both produced by Paramount Pictures, Eidos has obtained the rights to its video game.
The first “Tomb Raider” film scored big at the box office in 2001, earning $275 million worldwide. The sequel however did not gross as high, but managed to pull in an impressive $157 million. Meanwhile the video game series has made more than $1 billion since its release in 1996.
