We all avoid our Friends From College like the Dickens (okay, just us), but Netflix’s newest comedy will make it impossible. How I Met Your Mother alum Cobie Smulders and (technically) Keegan-Michael Key will lead a new Netflix comedy series from Neighbors creator Nick Stoller, bringing together Friends From College.
Not even sorry about that headline, guys. In more amusing news, here’s the latest trailer for Storks, a new animated adventure from Warner Bros. starring Andy Samberg(’s voice) as a stork who teams up with a human to deliver a bundle of joy to a hopeful family. Sounds pretty cute, but in a year filled with animated movies about talking animals, Storks is gonna need to give us a little something extra.
From the director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, that movie where Jason Segel showed the world his penis, and Neighbors, where a woman wears a fake penis like a necklace, comes Storks, an adorable animated movie for the whole family! Of course!
Writing a comedy sequel that’s as good as, if not better than, the first movie is a rare achievement. But if there’s anyone who can do it, it’s Nick Stoller.
A great poet once said that girls just want to have fun. And now several more great artists are out to prove it with Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.
As the sneak peek above suggests, we’ll have the first full, official trailer for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising tomorrow, but until then, enjoy 15 seconds of footage from the upcoming sequel to the 2014 comedy hit starring Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne. This time around, the pleasant couple next door are besieged by a house full of sorority sisters led by Chloe Moretz, who appears only briefly in the trailer, but seems to have been perfectly cast as yet another cold and calculating antagonist.
Where do babies come from? It’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves at one point or another, to no avail. This ancient knowledge has been lost to scholars for centuries — wild-eyed woodsmen would have you believe that a newborn rises from the earth as if from a tulip bulb after spilling the blood of an infant calf on fresh soil under the full moon. The powerful and mysterious scientific community subscribes to a surreal, almost Cronenberg-esque fantasy about fluid exchange, compulsive vomiting and horrific bodily distending. But even after all this investigation, the truth continues to elude the human race. We’ve all seen an infant before, they must come from somewhere, but dammit, where?
I’m not a parent, but if I had kids, I know who I would want teaching my children about the miracle of life, and that’s “D--- in a Box” singer Andy Samberg. He seems to have a good grasp of the pertinent parts and their various functions. Apparently, the folks at Warner Bros. agree with me, because they’ve announced that they’re producing an animated movie called Storks that will feature the voice talents of Samberg along with Kelsey Grammer.
James Franco has become one of our most prolific actors/directors/writers/artists/deli meat purveyors (probably)—he is, in the parlance of the Full House theme song, everywhere you look. Not only is he starring in Hulu’s upcoming Stephen King miniseries 11/22/63, but he’ll also appear in the new comedy Why Him? from co-writer Nicholas Stoller and the director of I Love You, Man.
Hey, remember that Tinker Bell sketch from 'SNL' a while back, when Aidy Bryant played a bawdy version of the beloved Disney fairy? If only we could have a film version of that. Well, prepare for the next best thing. Melissa McCarthy is set to star in a live-action Tinker Bell film from 'Night at the Museum' director Shawn Levy and 'Neighbors' writer Nicholas Stoller. Magical!
