Zach Galifianakis Asks Humiliating Questions To Brad Pitt In Latest Episode Of ‘Between Two Ferns’

Zach Galifianakis and Brad Pitt

It has been a while since we’ve seen the Funny or Die’s public access interview show Between To Ferns, in fact the last time we saw an episode, host Zach Galifianakis was interviewing President Barrack Obama. The sketch features the comedian as a host asking celebrities and even the President of the United States some rather rude, vulgar, and even insulting questions. His latest victim is Brad Pitt, star of Fury – or is it Furry? As usual the guest plays as himself, but this time Pitt can barley tolerate Galifianakis’ questions, and goes to great lengths to restrain himself from resorting to physical violence. What’s more, the interview is interrupted by an impromptu stand-up act from a very well-known comedian. Won’t spoil who it is, but you’ll just hit the jump to see who it is. [Read more...]

‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Trailer and Poster

You might have noticed that Marvel’s plan to release the first trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron during the next episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. kind of backfired when the trailer was mysteriously leaked. Even the Marvel Twitter account jokingly acknowledged that there was a leak saying “Dammit Hydra.” So the low-resolution trailer instantly went viral, but of course, posting leaks isn’t doing the film or the people that market it any justice. And to counter the leak, Disney and Marvel have released the full trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron online. Hit the jump to check out the official trailer in all it’s HD glory. [Read more...]

‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Trailer To Air On ‘Agents of SHIELD’

If you want to attract more viewers to a show, you got to have some bait, and for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. they are putting out bait so big, you’d just be plain stupid to ignore. Or you could just wait for it to air on the internet, but that is besides the point.

The point is that the first trailer for Avengers: Age Of Ultron will air on next week’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It’s a smart move considering the show’s declining ratings, but strange improved storytelling. Hopefully it’ll be enough to attract the viewers to see that the show has improved since last season. But in the age of the Internet, I think fans might be willing to wait it out.

Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris HemsworthMark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, and new to the series James Spader, Elizabeth Olsen, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. The film opens in theaters on May 1, 2015.

Of the trailers we have seen promoting Big Hero 6, the most recent one has shown the most footage of the masked villain, Yokai.

‘Dracula Untold’ Movie Review: Generic Fun That Wastes Its Full Potential

dracula untold luke evans

Dracula is a pretty iconic character. Since 1931, the character has seen many revisions and alterations, and numerous origins stories, so to sell first time director Gary Shore‘s Dracula Untold, Universal is pitching this as the untold story of Vlad the Impaler, who would become Dracula, by mixing history (or lack thereof), fiction (there is a whole lot of it), visual effects, and by subtly telling us that he isn’t the only monster to walk the earth. In fact, the film is actually an extension of the larger monster universe that Universal is now building where the classic monsters of yesteryear are now walking amongst us in modern times.

Because everyone else’s films are serialized and building to have larger story arcs, why not use it on the classic monsters that we all know and love. Problem is, Dracula Untold kicks things off in the most generic way. While it is a seemingly fun twist on the iconic character, Dracula Untold wastes a whole lot of potential. Hit the jump for more.
