The Marvel Cinematic Universe, now in its eighth year, has been known to kickstart a lot of otherwise unknown actors’ careers, and give some their big break while rebooting others’ careers. While Robert Downey Jr. definitely had the biggest name at the start, it wasn’t easy for Jon Favreau to convince the Marvel execs that he was right for Tony Stark, but we’re all so glad he did. Chris Evans’ only other blockbuster credit was as the Human Torch in Fox’s Fantastic Four (2005) and its ill-fated sequel Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007), but his chiseled jawline soon landed him the title role in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger.
Batman vs. Superman is just about two months away and the marketing onslaught is about to begin. Here, in the calm before the storm, though we have the very first clip from Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder debuted the new footage on Conan last night...
Marvel’s Ant-Man opens in theaters today and to this point we’ve seen no shortage of trailers, clips and TV spots showing off all kinds of footage. But, on the last stop on his promotional tour for the movie, Paul Rudd stopped by to visit Conan O’Brien and brought something extra special.
Not long ago, we heard a report suggesting that Lionsgate is planning on developing more Hunger Games sequels (or prequels, maybe), which makes sense given the franchise’s vast global success. Josh Hutcherson appeared on Conan O’Brien’s show with Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth to promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, where he added fuel to the sequel rumor fire.
Conan O’Brien is broadcasting his nighty talk show live from Comic-Con 2015 this week, and after hosting the panel for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 yesterday afternoon, he had the stars on his show later in the evening to further discuss the film. But then they got a bit off track when O’Brien broached the subject of Jennifer Lawrence’s singing abilities.
Last year Hugh Jackman said he would love to play Wolverine until he’s dead, but the actor confirmed this year that the upcoming sequel to The Wolverine will mark his last time playing the character. And with Hollywood’s inevitable cycle of reboots, it’s only a matter of time before we get a new Wolverine. Enter Conan O’Brien, who showcased some hilarious auditions for actors who could potentially replace Jackman.
Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter are hitting Comic-Con 2015 this week, with O’Brien broadcasting his nightly talk show live from San Diego and moderating the panel for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. But first the duo have to get to San Diego, and they’re going there in style — Mad Max: Fury Road style.
We’ve all imagined our fair share of Mad Men theories, particularly with just over a week until the series finale. Series creator Matthew Weiner keeps notoriously tight-lipped about any and all spoilers, but his most recent Conan appearance broached one of the crazier theories, and even teased Don Draper’s end in a new clip from the final Mad Men.
Now give this a chance. It might sound boring – Adam Sandler talks about food with Conan O’Brien – but the former Saturday Night Live stars (Sandler was, of course, a cast member, while O’Brien as a long-time writer) have some pretty tall tales to share about their time on the show, specifically as it applies to meals.
Hey, sorry if you weren’t planning on seeing Hot Tub Time Machine 2, because after you watch this clip of stars Craig Robinson, Adam Scott, and Clark Duke jamming out to the comedy sequel’s unofficial theme song, you’re not going to have a choice. The very catchy – and, let’s be honest here, very familiar – song is an instant earworm, the kind the will wiggle right into your brain and not let go.
