Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day are back in 'Horrible Bosses 2,' and these working stiffs have some new adversaries to face. As New Line Cinema announced the start of production in Los Angeles, California (from which we've obtained the first set photos), the studio also revealed the official plot synopsis and the full involvement of newcomers Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz.
This coming Sunday will see the 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' cast take the stage at Comic-Con 2013 to preview the new September season, and even screen an episode from the coming run, but why wait that long for a fresh trip to Paddy's Pub? The first clip from the new season has already arrived, and the latest scheme might look a bit familiar to longtime fans of the series.
Brilliantly manic but decidedly unimposing, Charlie Day doesn’t seem like the most obvious actor to be cast in a sweeping sci-fi opus like 'Pacific Rim.' But in Guillermo del Toro’s new film, Day is perfectly cast as a fanboy scientist who is as fascinated by the gigantic monsters that are attacking humankind as he is determined to stop them. He not only serves as some much-needed comic relief in the film, but provides a human counterpoint to the monolithic heroics of his co-stars, while occasionally providing a few details that become crucial to the plot.
We sat down with Day to talk 'Pacific Rim,' where the actor discussed the challenges of squaring off against one of those megaton monsters – and revealed it was pretty easy, even when they weren’t actually there. Additionally, he talked about tackling different sorts of acting challenges, in particular his openness to take on roles that push him outside the realm of comedy that he’s already conquered.
Warner Bros. has released two new clips for their upcoming monsters-vs-robots flick, 'Pacific Rim.' The first clip (above) is an explosive and up-close look at one of the human-piloted giant robots fighting a gigantic alien monster (otherwise known as a Kaiju), and we get to learn what an "elbow rocket" is. Hint: it's pretty fantastic. We also get to see the neural bridge in action, which is when two military pilots' brains are linked through the robot's system, allowing them to coordinate attacks with one another telepathically.
Weeks ago we heard the unusual if exciting news that 'Game of Thrones' showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss had penned one of the upcoming episodes for 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' season 9, inviting a host of comparisons as to how the Paddy's Pub gang might tackle the world of Westeros. Now, series star Charlie Day has gone on record with the episode's plot, but is it the 'Game of Thrones' parody we'd hoped?
Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day have worked together a lot. First they were in 'Going the Distance,' then Sudeikis made a couple of appearances on Day's show 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,' then came 'Horrible Bosses' and now its sequel. Well, that's not enough as they're also going to be starring in 'One Night on the Hudson' together, and they'll be directed by their 'Horrible Bosses' helmer Seth Gordon.
When 'Horrible Bosses' came out in 2011, it was one of a wave of comedies unleashed that summer (including 'Bridesmaids,' 'The Hangover Part II' and 'Bad Teacher'), but it was also one of the most successful, as it made over a hundred million at the box office on a smaller budget. Though it's hard to know how Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis and Jason Bateman could have new horrible bosses, all have signed on for a sequel.
