'Stretch' has gone through a bit of a rough period. The film, directed by Joe Carnahan and produced by Jason Blum, was originally set for a theatrical premiere back in March, but Universal Studios decided to drop it from its release slate, choosing to utilize other creative methods. Now, with an Amazon and iTunes release on October 7, and a VOD release on October 14, the first 'Stetch' trailer has debuted online.
Anyone visiting CollegeHumor within the past few years would no doubt find themselves aware of the long-running 'Jake & Amir, making it all the more puzzling this took so long. Comic duo Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld will take their oddball comedy to TBS with their own series based on the sketch, to be executive produced by 'Hangover' vet and future 'Naked Gun' star Ed Helms.
Ed Helms is slowly but surely turning into the face of rebooted films from the '80s. The 'Hangover' star has already signed up to lead a new reboot of 'National Lampoon's Vacation,' and now he's decided to step into the shoes of the late Leslie Nielsen to headline a 'Naked Gun' reboot for Paramount.
As Nielsen remarked in the original 'Naked Gun,' "it's like eating a spoonful of Drano; sure, it’ll clean you out, but it’ll leave you hollow inside." Of course, he was referring to cops getting involved with women, but the intense imagery applies here, as well.
Adult Swim's 'Childrens Hospital' spinoff (if it can even so be called) 'NTSF: SD: SUV::' will soon premiere its third season on Adult Swim beginning July 25, and as per usual the show has recruited a number of impressive guest stars for the short-form action thriller. Not only will 'The Hangover Part III' star Ed Helms show up to reprise an earlier role he'd played on the series (with a new twist), but so too will 'Arrested Development' star Alia Shawkat and '30 Rock' vet Jack McBrayer join the cast!
Comedy sequels are not uncommon, but trilogies are rare. And yet, 'The Hangover Part III,' the third and presumably final installment in Todd Phillips’ epic saga of four friends who can’t seem to keep themselves sober (or even conscious) when they come together, seems oddly natural given the enormous appeal of its ensemble cast. The film brings Wolf Pack members Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug full circle, returning them to Vegas older and marginally wiser as they try to track down the potty-mouthed Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong) for another gangster (John Goodman) who claims that he stole $21 million in gold bars from him during their first drugged-out stint in Sin City.
We spoke with stars Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms at Las Vegas’ Caesar’s Palace, where the original and final chapters were filmed about wrapping up the most successful comedy series in movie history. In addition to offering their thoughts about the franchise’s trajectory, they reflected on the star-making experience of playing these now-iconic roles, and offered a few suggestions about how to follow up their collective success with reunion films – in new styles and other genres, no less.
'The Hangover Part III' is due out in a week, and the one thing the trailers and posters have hammered home is that this is the final chapter of the series. The movie, which stars Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Ken Jeong, is promising closure and this latest (likely final) NSFW trailer plays up that this is the end.
Just yesterday we learned that 'Arrested Development' season 4 had yet to reveal all of its guest stars, even as we approach the May 26 debut of all 15 Netflix episodes, but it seems another major name has slipped out of the bag. 'The Office' and 'The Hangover' star Ed Helms will put in an appearance for 'Arrested Development's' return, and you don't have to wait to see it!
After an early marketing campaign that did everything in its power to hide plot details, 'The Hangover Part 3' has started revealing its secrets at a rapid-fire pace. First, there was the recent trailer that finally let us in on the plot of the film. Now, we have the first clip, which sheds some light on what appears to be the film's main conflict.
