When you watch the trailer for The Cobbler, you may be waiting for the Funny or Die logo to appear. But it doesn’t appear. Because The Cobbler is, against all odds, a real movie. Not only is it real, it is a movie directed by Tom McCarthy, a filmmaker with a strong track record. Then again, the man responsible for lovely little movies like The Station Agent and The Visitor was bound to make a disaster eventually. McCarthy’s disaster appears to be an Adam Sandler comedy about a magical shoemaker.

In between all of the tributes and montages and musical performances, the SNL 40th Anniversary Special actually found time for some original content. Right after a montage celebrating the short films that have been featured on the show over the years, Zach Galifianakis took to the stage to introduce a new digital short from Andy Samberg and Adam Sandler. Unlike most of Samberg’s original shorts, which usually traded in genial silliness, this one looked inward and examined a subject that everyone who has ever been on the show should be familiar with: breaking character.

The Razzie Awards are the joke of the awards community, handed out annually to films and stars viewed as the worst of that given year. Some people view film awards as arbitrary and largely hollow prizes, and many of the annual Razzie nominees only to serve to validate that perception as the Razzies don’t typically go to the bottom of the barrel, but to high-profile films. Some believe this is merely attention-seeking an obnoxious, and the films on this year’s shortlist aren’t doing anything to contradict that sentiment.

One might argue all movie stars are overpaid in comparison to essential professions like teachers or first responders, but in the grand scheme of things they earn their keep; their work generates absurd amounts of money, and for that work they are in turn paid slightly less absurd amounts of money.

Just last month it was announced that the legendary Mel Brooks has joined the cast of ‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ as Dracula’s estranged dad, which should make things even more silly and fun this time around. And while the sequel doesn’t hit theaters until next September, the team behind ‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ have released a brand new animated video, in which Dracula and his kiddos wish you a happy holidays.

What are we to make of ‘Pixels,’ the big budget feature adaptation of a cute short film that made the internet rounds a few years back? On one hand, it’s a cute premise. But it stars Adam Sandler. It’s the next film by Chris Columbus, who has made his fair share of amusing family adventures. But it stars Adam Sandler. It features the acting talents of the great Peter Dinklage and the often funny Josh Gad. But it stars Adam Sandler. However, these new posters for the film don’t feature Sandler’s name or face, so consider this a good start.

You can make all the “‘Hotel Transylvania’ sucked!” jokes you want (and then follow them with with all the “Get it? Sucked? Because vampires?” you want), but make no mistake: The movie was a big ol’ hit. The animated film about a hotel for famous monsters in a location I’ve yet to verify (but possibly Transylvania) earned almost $150 million in the United States and another $210 million worldwide back in 2012. That naturally inspired the upcoming sequel, ‘Hotel Transylvania 2,’ which will open in theaters next September, and once again features the voices of Adam Sandler (as Count Dracula), Adam Samberg (as Jonathan, a human), Selena Gomez (as Drac’s daughter Mavis), Kevin James (as Frank[enstein]), and Steve Buscemi (as Wayne the werewolf).
