In a move that really shouldn't surprise too many people, the ever-picky David Fincher is out of the director's chair for the upcoming (and untitled) Steve Jobs biopic, scripted by Aaron Sorkin. The 'Zodiac' and 'The Social Network' director has a reputation for being demanding, and it looks like Sony balked at his requested fee and level of control.

If the original 'Star Wars' defined cinema for countless people, the scene that probably sealed the deal was the Mos Eisley Cantina. Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi arrive in this wretched hive of scum and villainy looking for transport off of Tattooine, but before they meet Han Solo, they rub elbows with all kinds of crazy-looking aliens. Some are humanoid, some are giant bugs. Some are entirely passive and others get their arms sliced off by a lightsaber. It's a sequence so iconic and immersive that it's easy to forget that all of those aliens were designed and built in a shop before being strapped onto an actor's body.

What begins as a fairly typical 'SNL' sketch soon transforms into one of darker sketches the show has put on in recent memory, exploring the dissolution of a marriage thanks to dog food choices. Guest host Seth Rogen and regular cast member Cecily Strong bring their finest comedic chops to the scene, wringing every possible ounce of discomfort out of every moment.
Last night's 'SNL' had a digital short that had it all. Two characters speaking in a fictional language while wearing Halloween masks. Guest host Seth Rogen being racist against monsters. A surprise celebrity cameo. Children being scared. A minor rant about the inaccuracies of 'Monsters, Inc.' We're not sure what everyone was eating before they wrote this Monster Pals sketch, but they should order from there more often.
