Unless you’re lucky enough to slip into the SXSW showing of Seth Rogen‘s television adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher on Monday, then you’ll have to wait like the rest of us until the series premieres on AMC later this year. Until then we can expect at least one more trailer and more pictures like the ones you’ll find after the jump. (more…)
Word is making the Internet rounds that Seth Rogan‘s Preacher adaptation on AMC is adding Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, Robocop) to the mix as one of the recurring series villains, Odin Quincannon (pictured above). Based on the Garth Ennis and Steve DillonDC Vertigo series of the same name, this television adaptation is shaping up quite nicely. (more…)
Unless you have been actively avoiding the internet, television, news, and gossip from your best friends, you are very aware of the recent attack on Sony that resulted in the leaking of thousands of personal emails written and/or received by Sony staff, personal information (including social security numbers and birthdays) of current and past Sony employees, and even the early release of some of Sony’s upcoming movies, including the highly anticipated musical, Annie. Amid the thousands of emails, various outlets have discovered some pretty damning conversations between some of the higher ups that are borderline racist (at best), disrespectful to the talent that brings in Sony’s revenue, and even conversations criticizing Sony’s own animation unit. Now, after bowing to the hackers’ demands that Sony cancel the release of the upcoming Seth Rogan/James Franco starrer, The Interview, the public has to wonder: How can Sony survive this attack?

We all knew that This is the End would be filled with inappropriately hysterical humor ranging from the usual pot smoking / drug use jokes to masturbation, and beyond. Now we’ve got a NSFW clip of what could be one of the funniest looks at what happens to a bunch of guys stuck in a house with no women at the end of the world.
When a movie stars Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel, and Danny McBride, the question isn’t will they talk about masturbation, it’s how quickly will they get to it. I’m already sold on seeing this movie in the theater with what I’ve already seen.
This Is the End hits theater screens June 12th.
The film follows six friends trapped in a house after a series of strange and catastrophic events devastate Los Angeles. As the world unravels outside, dwindling supplies and cabin fever threaten to tear apart the friendships inside. Eventually, they are forced to leave the house, facing their fate and the true meaning of friendship and redemption.
If you’re a fan of movies about the end of the world, This is the End may be right up your alley. This flick follows the woeful adventures of some movie stars as they have to deal with the impending apocalypse. Now, there’s a new 45 second red-band TV trailer for you to peruse. Check out James Franco, Seth Rogan and a giant demon below:
If that’s got your attention, then see the whole movie when it comes to theaters on June 12th.
If you watched the Red Band Trailer for This is the End you’ve seen Emma Watson pop in and threaten James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson with a gory axe induced death. Now we’ve got a clip of a slightly calmer Emma sharing her thoughts on what the heck is going on outside. Take a look and then we’ll discuss it below.
Zombies, that’s what Emma thinks. That ignores all the other crazy lights and sink holes and explosions happening around them though. What’s truly humorous about this scene is how the guys are reacting to Emma. Suddenly this “sausage fest” of an apocalypse has a new member and she, although disheveled and dirty is still drop dead gorgeous. I can’t wait to see those guys go nuts trying to garner her attention while the world ends around them.
Written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Super-Bad), This is the End is unsurprisingly just another one of a string of apocalypsecomediescoming out.It’s the sheer amount of celebrities playing themselves in this cast that marks This is the End as a must see. There are going to be a ton of cameos including, Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Mindy Kaling, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Martin Star, Kevin Hart, and Jason Trost.
This is the End hits theater screens on June 12th.
It all started back in 2007 with a short film Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse, written by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Jason Stone. The short stars Rogen and Jay Baruchel. It’s never been released to the public, but the trailer (Below) was put out and soon plans were made to convert it to the big screen.
Let’s start with the Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse trailer to give you the idea. There’s a great intro to the teaser by Seth and James Franco that’s worth a look by itself.
There’s lots more stars added to the mix for the big screen version though, Seth Rogen, Emma Watson, Jonah Hill, Rihanna, Craig Robinson, James Franco and Jay Baruchel. The movie looks like a lot of fun with the actors playing themselves.

What did you think? I’m putting this on my list of movies to check out in 2013.
Currently nerdbastards has not seen ‘The Green Hornet’, the live-action comic-book adaptation which premiered last night. Personally, I never go to theatrical releases anymore. Not when this bastard gets to go to advance press screenings. In this circumstance I missed my local advanced screening. I wasn’t feeling too good, theater was an hour a way and, well I hate Seth Rogen’s face. I don’t hate Seth Rogen. I just hate his face. He’s a hideous fucking chud, yet he scores a mad amount of pussy. I just don’t get it. I know he has money and he’s funny (subject to opinion), but come on, he’s uglier than a bludgeoned fish. Who the hell would sleep with that man?
Anyway, back to ‘The Green Hornet’. Here’s a film that was long in the making. Michel Gondry wanted to do it years back, 97 I believe, but because of some creative disputes in got tossed side. Kevin Smith, at one point had been interested in flexing his directing skills by tackling a live-action hornet flick. Of course Kevin came to the realization that all of us knew, that he has no directing skills. Once he figured that out he basically said “Fuck it. I’m out. I’m gonna eat my wife’s ass instead”. Later his vision of ‘The Green Hornet’ was released in comic-book form, which was met with a “meh” response from critics. Later Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg won over control of the project in 2007. Eventually Michel Gondry came back into the fray and here we are, 4 years later with Rogen playing Britt Reid, the titular character who teams up with martial arts expert and genius engineer Kato (played by Jay Chou) to defeat the vicious Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz). Was it worth the wait?
Like I said I have not seen it and thus cannot judge. I’ve heard Rogen was completely unlikable. Kato and his “Kato vision” was awesome. Folks tell me it’s an insult to the source material. A silly, slapstick ‘Bromance’ that was intermittently entertaining.
Well, why don’t you bastards tell us what you think. Is Rogan a furry troll, or am I just crazy? Seriously though, what did you guys think of “The Green Hornet”? Have at thee! Discuss the film in the comments below. Spoilers are welcomed.
