Tom Hanks performed the most badass slam poem about the 90s television show Full House on Jimmy Fallon. His smooth talking spoken word monologue about the Tanner residence is probably the most insightful thing you’ll hear all morning and will fill you with welcome nostalgia.
While Hanks’ black turtleneck and pants make the whole thing legit, his moustache adds a certain dignity to his retelling of DJ Tanner calling a radio station for free concert tickets. He goes on to the climax of the poem: “This house full of men. This full house of men.” That’s deep man, real deep [snaps fingers].

Tom Hanks accidentally dropped the F-bomb on Good Morning America today during an interview and host Elizabeth Vargas treated it like he slandered Justin Bieber or something. Hanks was putting on an accent when the blasphemous word came out and Vargas held onto her seat like she was going to fall off.
Do they really think all the little children in America will regurgitate their morning cereal and turn into Dallas Winston while their parents fan themselves and say “I do proclaim, how will life go on!?”
censorship police Parents Television Council have already drafted an angry response: “Once again, a morning news show has allowed the harshest profanity to be broadcast into every living room and breakfast table in the country,” said the director of public policy Dan Isett.
the f*ck down people. I’m sure he’ll remember to use the accepted swear words “drats,” “curses” and “the word that must not be named” next time.

Words cannot explain how amazed I am by the trailer for Cloud Atlas.
Brought to you by the Matrix trilogy’s Andy and Lana Wachowski and Run Lola Run’s Tom Tykwer, this film is an adaptation of David Mitchell’s 2004 novel of the same name.
Featuring a talented cast of Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent and Hugh Grant, the film is an exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future. To make things sound more complicated, the film is a kaleidoscopic tale where each cast member plays multiple roles. Split into six stories, the film interweaves its characters’ storylines in an epic tale featuring science-fiction elements while focusing on themes such as love, life and the interconnected nature of existence.
If you’re still confused by the plot of this film, perhaps the gorgeous trailer will make you think otherwise. Set to release on October 26, I particularly love how it doesn’t reveal too much despite its lengthy trailer that lasts a little less than six minutes.
What do you think? I don’t want to start hyping the film, but I won’t be surprised if it gets nominated for a couple of Oscars.
“Hey andPOP,” you tell us, “you’re posting so many videos by Jimmy Kimmel.”
Well, it’s because the late night host is on a roll. It must be nice that Kimmel has tons of celebrity friends that he can call up to put together these hilarious video compilations. Anyone who can get Meryl Streep to own a mustache and Matt Damon to grope his grape suit (and then cut him from the movie) is good in my books.
This trailer for “Movie: The Movie” is supposed to sell the most epic film in history. The A-list cast goes on: George Clooney, Colin Farrell, Samuel L. Jackson, Charlize Theron, Tom Hanks, Martin Scorsese, Emily Blunt, Jessica Biel, Jason Bateman, Chewbacca and many more. It also features every stereotypical plot and genre in movie history. Why see ten movies when you can get all the action in this one?
As much as I’d like to, I’d be totally amiss to bypass Valentine’s Day altogether. So instead, fellow singletons, or couples, lets have a masochistic moment and watch this sappy video, which presents the many ways our favourite film characters have said I love you over the years.
Watch the awkward (Michael Cera, Woody Allen) to the smokin’ hot (Ryan Gosling, Daniel Craig) and the inexplicable (Nicolas Cage, Dany Carvey). Just make sure to hold out to the end when we get over 30s seconds of kissing scenes. Oh, and also remember a box of tissues.
As NME.com reports, the musical uses Green Day songs to tell the growing-up tale of three small-town boys as one joins the army, one moves to the big city, and the other stays home and gets his girlfriend pregnant. The musical made its debut in the band’s hometown of Berkeley last year and it is due to make its Broadway premiere on April 20.
It has been long-time rumoured that Green Day would turn their album American Idiot into a film, but now it seems that talks are advancing and this project might actually make it to the silver screen.
“The terms of my settlement say that I can’t host another show for seven months,” O’Brien said. “So next week, look forward to the Andy Richter Show with his sidekick, me!”
Jay Leno will be returning next week to host the show.
Oprah Winfrey is interviewing Leno in Los Angeles for her Thursday show and has invited O’Brien to participate. It has not been reported whether he will accept her offer.
“As I set off for exciting new career opportunities, I just want to make one things clear to everyone listening out there: I will do nudity,” he said in his final monologue.
Ron Howard’s Angels & Demons soared to a $48 million opening this weekend, narrowly edging out a stellar $43 million second-week performance by Star Trek , according to estimates by Hollywood.com Box Office.
According to EW.com, Angels‘ solid bow is the second-best opening of Tom Hanks’ career, behind The Da Vinci Code‘s $77.1 million debut in 2006. Despite receiving better reviews than its predecessor, Angels was widely expected to fly lower than Da Vinci on account of the cooled-off controversy over the religious subject matter in Dan Brown’s novels. Still, the books’ worldwide infamy should guarantee returns of biblical proportions; Da Vinci grossed $758.2 million globally, and Angels has already racked up an additional $104.3 million from foreign territories.
“Angels & Demons” is worth seeing, even for those who haven’t read the Dan Brown novel of the same title. It has thrill moments, chill moments and surprising revelations. Who would have ever thought Ewan McGregor could pull off playing a church official?
In the second movie of the “Da Vinci Code” franchise, Tom Hanks returns as Harvard professor Robert Langdon, a cheeky historic symbolist. After the sudden death of the Pope and the threat of the Illuminati (a secret society that in the film, seeks vengeance on the Church) destroying the Vatican with an antimatter bomb, Langdon is asked to follow a historic trail dating back 400 years that will hopefully lead to the deadly bomb.
Now that I think of it, the plot sounds sort of ridiculous and as usual, features some loop holes. For example, why would anyone go out of their way to capture four cardinals and murder them separately if they were eventually planning on destroying the entire Vatican? Then again, it does make for a thrilling movie. Read more…
In a twist of casting fate, Meg Ryan will play the mother of Colin Hanks. Yes, the real life son of Tom Hanks, Ryan’s “You’ve Got Mail” and “Sleepless in Seattle” soul mate.
Fittingly, the movie title is “My Mom’s New Boyfriend.” In the flick, Ryan begins dating an art thief, played by Antonio Banderas. Young Hanks, an FBI agent tracing Banderas, is forced to bug them and listen to their dates.
Also co-starring Selma Blair, the film should be released in February.
Tom Hanks and Ron Howard will team up again for the prequel to The Da Vinci Code.
The 2006 film, based on the bestselling novel by Dan Brown, made a whopping $540 million worldwide.
Angels And Demons, Brown’s prequel to The Da Vinci Code, was also an international bestseller. The film adaptation will see Hanks reprise his role as Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon.
In Angels And Demons, Langdon delves into the world of a secret society that threatens the existence of the Catholic Church.
Filming is set to start in mid-February in Rome with a release date around December 2008.
