  • Report: “Mrs. Doubtfire” sequel is happening

    Mrs. DoubtfireIf you haven’t already heard, the big news today is that Mrs. Doubtfire will soon have a sequel. That’s right, reports are happening that the prized 1993 flick looks to be revived in 2014. As of right now, Robin Williams is said to be attached, as well as, director Chris Columbus. Furthermore, David Berenbaum (writer of Elf) is said to be writing the script.

    There were reports that Bonnie Hunt had actually been working on a sequel since 2001 but never could get all the pieces together. Thus the project came to a halt. Although it’s been about 21 years since the first, most have the mind set of “better late than never” when it comes to the Doubtfire 2 project.

    I’m sure the studios have that same mindset as well. Lets not forget that the original Ms. Doubtfire totally owned the box offices, raking in over $441 million worldwide. The flick also won a Golden Globe and so did Robin Williams for his leading role. Read More

    Conan O’Brien and his 50 cameos for the MTV Movie Awards opening montage

    Conan O’Brien set out to start the MTV Movie Awards off with a bang and he certainly accomplished it. As stated in the clip, the previous record for cameos in an MTV Movie Awards opening was eight, so Conan brought us 50. Conan’s big opening was great too. I personally liked his sign off for the night the best, “Thanks for joining us, enjoy watching this as a rerun!” Read More

    Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to star in a new movie together

    Tina Fey and Amy PoehlerThe power duo of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are officially set to team up in a new flick called The Nest, this according to Buzzfeed. Universal has confirmed that Poehler was in talks to star opposite of Fey. Paula Pell, who worked with both Fey and Poehler on Saturday Night Live, wrote the new film. The story is about two women in their thirties who find out their parents’ house is for sale. So they go back to the house for one final epic weekend that they spend going through every emotion that sisters could go through together.

    Clearly if one of the main stars is still in the negotiation stage this movie is a long ways away from being done but we are certainly looking forward to it. We’re also looking forward to Fey and Poehler reuniting on the big screen for the first time since Baby Mama.

    The final redband trailer for ’22 Jump Street’ will take us into the weekend

The tagged “final” redband trailer for the movie has hit the web and rather than continue with the ridiculous notion that the movie’s stars can pass as high school, they’re moved to college to bust drug rings. There’s some good self-aware plotline jokes made by the best character in the movie, which is Ice Cube dropping F-bombs. It’s his NWA days all over again. It’s redband which means NSFW.

    Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. star in ‘Let’s Be Cops’, here’s a redband trailer

    The pairing of Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. as cops is possibly the best cop duo pairing since Seth Rogen and Bill Hader teamed up in Superbad. In this awesome redband trailer for their new movie Let’s Be Cops the duo portray two friends who end up faking being cops after they learn about the powers the uniform provides them. There’s solid jokes, pretty women, and drug and alcohol abuse. The big three when it comes to making a trailer geared toward the college crowd. If you’re wondering why Johnson and Wayans Jr. look so familiar to you it’s because they’re currently starring as roommates on FOX’s New Girl. It’s a redband trailer so it’s NSFW.
