‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ Review: Finally, A Batman Who Does Play Around

by Matt Singer February 4, 2017 @ 7:03 PM
It’s a question that has perplexed Batman villains since at least 1989: “Where does he get those wonderful toys?” Finally, we have an answer. The LEGO Store. The one a few blocks from Warner Bros.’ New York offices currently sells at least eight different LEGO Batman sets, all of which appear in various forms in The LEGO Batman Movie. The film is, like The LEGO Movie before it, a feature-length toy commercial — and, like The LEGO Movie before it, The LEGO Batman Movie is far more entertaining than a giant piece of crass commercialism has any right to be.

Although just about every character in The LEGO Movie was delightful enough to deserve their own spinoff, only one truly warranted it: Will Arnett’s hilariously narcissistic Batman. The new trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie expands on what made that character so great, functioning as both a loving sendup and amazing satire of the iconic superhero. It’s kind of perfect.

Oddly Enough, Zach Galifianakis Is Joining the Cast of Ava DuVernay’s ‘A Wrinkle in Time’

by Emma Stefansky November 1, 2016 @ 4:45 PM
With Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time, we’ve learned to expect the unexpected. First, she made the decision to update the story, having a black protagonist and a mixed-race family at the center of the story. Now, she’s trying her hand at gender-swapping, casting Zach Galifianakis in the role of the usually female Happy Medium.

‘Masterminds’ Review: A Painfully Dense Comedy That Squanders a Talented Cast

‘Masterminds’ stars some of the funniest names in comedy, like Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis, and Leslie Jones. Too bad ‘Masterminds’ isn’t funny.

‘Masterminds’ Trailer: Zach Galifianakis’ Long-Delayed Comedy Is Finally Coming to Theaters

by Britt Hayes July 28, 2016 @ 3:11 PM
Hey, remember Masterminds? We saw the first trailer for the film last year, when it was originally set to hit theaters in August. But the latest comedy from Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess fell victim to Relativity Studios’ bankruptcy and was pushed back to this September — well over a year after its original release date. Now that it’s finally seeing the light of day (or the dark of the theater, whatever), Masterminds has a new trailer to remind you that A. It is definitely hitting theaters soon, and B. There are some very good reasons to see it.

‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ Reveals First Look at LEGO Joker and LEGO Robin

The first teaser for The LEGO Batman Movie was appropriately Bat-heavy and even more delightful than we could have imagined. And while Will Arnett’s narcissistic Dark Knight probably doesn’t care too much about his co-stars, we’ve been anxious to see what some of Batman’s other famous characters will look like in the upcoming LEGO Movie spinoff. Thankfully, the wait is over.

‘Keeping Up With the Joneses’ Trailer: Zach Galifianakis Spies on Super Spy Jon Hamm

by Britt Hayes June 22, 2016 @ 11:27 AM
The first trailer for Keeping Up With the Joneses hits some predictable comedic beats, but with a cast that includes Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm, Isla Fisher and Gal Gadot, how can this one not go on your must-see list? Directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad), the new action comedy pits one of the world’s funniest men against one of the handsomest in a film that looks like a throwback to stuff like Stakeout — remember Stakeout? You had cable in the ’90s, right?

In what sounds like something truly special, Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis and Bill Hader will combine their comedic forces for The Something, the directorial debut from 22 Jump Street scribe Rodney Rothman. The project has been percolating for a while, but it looks as though Rothman and Co. are finally ready for take-off with the space-set comedy.
