It's time for another installment of 'You Think You Know Movies'! Where last we revealed some cool facts about the first 'Star Wars' movie and Marvel's 'The Avengers,' we now take a trip outside the realm of sci-fi and superheroes with 'Mean Girls.'
Whoever is in charge of scheduling over at Disney (we imagine it's many people, but just go with it) is going to be in a lot of trouble when they realize that they've put their next 'Star Wars' movie up against 'The Nest,' an adult comedy starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. How do you even compete with that? You don't. Just pack it up now, J.J. Abrams. You're going to lose this box office battle.
Every so often, during a press day that seems endless for everyone involved, something that at least resembles "reality" can occur. It's an odd thing, really: Because on a day like this, most people involved are seeking something that doesn't feel manufactured, even though it's almost impossible to find. Anyway, that's my overly hyperbolic way of saying, "Talking to Ellie Kemper was a delight."
What's the prophesy, again? If a virgin lights the black-flame candle on All Hallow's Eve, Sarah, Winnie and Mary will rise up from the grave. Well, Tina Fey may not have lit any sketchy candles (that we know), but the gestating 'Hocus Pocus 2' has reportedly enlisted the comedienne to bring her magic touch to this beloved film for another go.
The 'This Is Where I Leave You' trailer sells a movie that could be unbearably sentimental, or genuinely warm and touching, or funny. It's almost impossible to tell from two-and-a-half minutes of footage. However, you're unlikely to find a stronger cast of likable, funny people than this, and director Shawn Levy is certainly due for a little redemption after making nonsense like 'The Internship' and 'Date Night.'
Seth Meyers' 'Late Night' just recently unveiled its Second Chance Theatre, an attempt to let former 'SNL' performers have a venue to show off beloved sketches that never made it to the air on the venerable comedy show. Meyers, however, is not the only former 'SNL' head writer to recycle old material -- Tina Fey did it, too!
By now you've probably heard the rumors circulating about 'Mean Girls 2,' in that it could possibly be happening. (And, no, we're not talking about that ABC Family title of the same name.) With the first film becoming a cult classic, one that's still quoted to this day, fans were surely holding out hope for a sequel, but sadly we're here to set the record straight with words from 'Mean Girls' writer-star Tina Fey.
When the credits rolled at the end of 'The Muppets,' the titular felt heroes had made the comeback of a lifetime. Now we see that 'Muppets: Most Wanted' begins moments after the conclusion of the last film, with Kermit and the gang realizing that the cameras are still on them so they might as well go ahead and make a sequel. Then, in true Muppets fashion, everyone begins to sing about the fact that they're making a sequel.
