Once in the Suicide Squad, always in the Suicide Squad, at least if you’re Will Smith and his co-star Ike Barinholtz, who has just joined Smith and Joel Edgerton in David Ayer’s Netflix orc buddy cop movie Bright. Which is a very weird second half of a sentence to type.
Neighbors can suck. I’ve had terrible neighbors who vacuum at 1 o’clock in the morning, ones who fight with wooden bats in the hallway, and ones who decided it was a brilliant idea for their band to play a hardcore metal cover of Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself.’ The scenarios for crappy neighbors are endless, which is good news for the new sequel to the Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne 2014 comedy.
The 20-year anniversary of MADtv brought cast members out of the woodwork for a CW reunion special, and we might have seen the next step coming. The series itself will officially return for eight new CW episodes, with original cast members eyed to host new comedians for each new installment.
It seems like only yesterday that SNL celebrated its 40th anniversary, to think that MADtv has existed for twenty (admittedly, it would help to have actually aired all that time). Nevertheless, the stars of MADtv will reunite on The CW for a 20th anniversary special in 2016, returning plenty of past alum.
The last time Amy Poehler was featured in a sports-themed comedy, we got Blades of Glory, a sometimes overlooked comedic gem. This time, Poehler is taking on a more mainstream sport with a new, untitled basketball comedy alongside her Sisters co-star, The Mindy Project’s Ike Barinholtz.
It’s all coming together for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad as the upcoming DC film heads into production. Ayer himself has been pretty active on social media, posting pre-production and behind the scenes photos freely — which goes against the typical secrecy surrounding superhero film projects (not that Suicide Squad is your average superhero film). Today, Ayer assembled the cast for a big group photo, which features a few new faces.
In a surprise to no one, director Nicholas Stoller’s new film, ‘Neighbors,’ features male nudity. The film focuses on a married couple played by Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne, whose characters are raising a child, and the frat house next door run by Zac Efron and Dave Franco. In the scenes we saw from our visit to the set, there are a number of big parties in the film, and the frat brothers behave as they will -- which means they’re going to get out of hand and is what creates the central conflict in the film.
