In 2015, Zach Neil and Brian Link opened a bar in New York based on the filmography of Will Ferrell. From day one, ‘Stay Classy New York‘ was a quirky place that, many may assume, would come to depend on its Tuesday free pizza parties and Sunday boozy brunches to keep a continuous crowd coming in after the novetly wore off. But the Friday night Anchorman parties and the Smelly Pirate Hooker cocktail have proved quite consistently popular. (more…)
The dynamic duo of Derek and Hansel are back, with the sequel to arguably the most quotable movie ever made: Zoolander. Oddly enough, the original wasn’t that big of a hit back in 2001 when it premiered in theaters; earning only enough to place 55th out of the highest domestic grossing films of that year, behind projects like Rat Race and The Animal. The cult classic status it has accrued since then will most likely garner some major numbers this time around, however. Read on for the plot summary of the film, the international trailer, and promotional poster for Zoolander 2! (more…)
Although he has stated in the past that there would be no Anchorman 3, Adam McKay has since retracted that statement, and even gone as far as to discuss possible plot themes for a new Anchorman film. We have seen the hilarious Will Ferrell take Ron Burgundy through the progression of 1970s and 1980s media in both the original Anchorman and in the sequel. So what could possibly be the next step? (more…)
The first full trailer for Zoolander 2 has walked the Internet Runway and is just as delightfully funny as the first. All the characters are back as Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel McDonald (Owen Wilson) go head to head against Fashion’s greatest villain, Mugatu (Will Ferrell). (more…)
Anyone remember a campy television show called Manimal that managed to worm its way into the year of 1983? If not, don’t worry about it. It only ran for 8 episodes, after all. Well, in the tradition of recycling that has become the mainstay in Hollywood, they’ll be bringing this old property to life once more. Yes, they’re working on a Manimalmovie adaptation. Don’t expect a serious incarnation of the story, however, as it’s a Will Ferrell project. (more…)
A second trailer has released for The LEGO Movie, so if somehow the first one didn’t get you amped to see this hilarious look at the world of multicolored bricks, then there’s no hope for you. You’ll never understand the joy of tiny plastic Batman failing, repeatedly, to throw a batarang. (more…)
Tommy Wirkola did a great job directing Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.The movie was full of action packed fun and the stars, Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, had great chemistry on screen, but somehow it never captured the American movie going audience’s attention .
Renner’s run with The Avengers and The Bourne Legacy were thought by the producers, to be a draw for the re-imagined fairy tale, but instead, Witch Hunters got panned by critics and grossed at what best could be called modest $205 million dollars in worldwide box office earnings. So what we can only conclude was a drunken sugar binge decision by Paramount and MGM, a Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters sequel is on the way.
The decision for a sequel may be due to the film reaching the $200 million dollar mark, but Deadline has confirmed that a number of the film’s producers expected a much bigger return, producers including Beau Flynn, comedian Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Kevin Messick. Currently there’s no plot , no title, and no time-frame for shooting the sequel, and even the return of writer-director Wirkola and stars Jeremy and Gemma are still up in the air. Seeing as the film didn’t do as good as their respective studios thought it would, the idea of doing sequel might be a bit of a turn off for the film’s stars.
Perhaps they can still pull it off when the movie is released and profits from the Blu-ray and DVD sales are added to the mix. Until then it’s best to keep an open mind, but this could easily end up as a straight to DVD feature starring Thomas Mann‘s sidekick character before you know it.
Paramount Pictures announced today the addition of Harrison Ford to the cast of Will Ferrell‘s long awaited Anchorman 2. Ford will play a legendary newscaster (Think Tom Brokaw or Dan Rather) in the comedy. Ford’s got a lot on his plate after wrapping up shooting on Ender’s Game, he’ll be reprising his role as Han Solo in whatever Star Wars movie the franchise gets going, and if Ender’s Game is a hit there’s the distinct possibility of a couple more movies in that franchise.
Can Ford stand up to the comedic skills of his fellow cast mates? Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate, David Koechner, and Kristen Wiig are certainly going to bring their comedic “A” game to the movie. The sequel should be just as wacky as the original with Ferrell and McKay having written the screenplay.
The plot details on Anchorman 2 are still unclear and no one on the production is talking or even hinting at what the story might entail. I’m sure there will be lots of national news programs getting roasted and there could be a number of news people cameos peppered throughout the film.
The Interwebz, where nerd art runs wild. In the wrong places you’ll find pics of where Batman keeps the Robin “tryouts” or bootlegs of those exercise vidoes Wonder Woman made in the late eighties. In the right places you can find mind blowing nerd based art.
Welcome to the right place.
We collect it, you enjoy it, and we are all better for it.
ABOVE: Ever wonder what it would have been had Clint Eastwood actually been cast as Batman? Wonder no more! Aged, pissed off, a carrying a case of permanent smoker’s lung. It’s a perfect blend of Bruce Wayne and the “Man with no name”. Definatly not someone you want to meet during a criminal heist. [Geek Tyrant]
Hit the jump for comic book romance novels, The Avengers “What if” and MOAR !
Anchorman is one of the best comedies of the past 25 years. Will Ferrell, who is regarded by many as one of the funniest men in comedy, turned the character of San Diego news anchorman Ron Burgundy into a cult classic icon. I myself, quote the legend that is Ron Burgunday on a daily basis. A sequel to the 2004 comedy has long been rumored, it never emerged… until now.
That’s right, Anchorman 2 is on it’s way! Ron and the KVWN-TV Channel 4 Evening News team will assemble once again.
Here’s a clip of Will, in his Ron persona, making the announcement on the Conan O’Brien show:
Now, before you start laying on the Sex Panther and perfecting your best “I’m Ron Burgundy?” this is just in the development stages right now. But, they now have Adam McKay (of the original Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Step Brothers and The Other Guys) set to write and direct. The script, which has been tossed around for years, was finished by McKay and Will Ferrell, who will return to star as Ron Burgundy, of course, along with Steve Carell and Paul Rudd from 04’s Anchorman
