BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Those watching the NFL on Sunday afternoon likely caught sight of a familiar face. Will Ferrell, in full Ron Burgundy character, hawked the Dodge Durango in not one but SIX car commercials, some involving either a horse or ballroom dancers (but not both in the same spot).
His directorial debut was supposed to be
After nearly a decade of being quoted endlessly by fans, Ron Burgundy's many bits of wisdom -- "Milk was a bad choice," "I'm kind of a big deal," etc.-- have become legend. The arrival of Anchorman: The Legend Continues this Christmas promises to give us more where that came from, but Ron Burgundy wouldn't be a classy newsman if he didn't know how to take advantage of an opportunity. So in November, a month before the Anchorman' sequel's debut, we'll see the arrival of Let Me Off at the Top!, a.k.a. Ron Burgundy's memoir.
There are so many Anchorman quotes that run through your brain with just a single glimpse of Ron Burgundy's rich, lustrous mustache. It's really all you need to get ridiculously excited for Anchorman: The Legend Continues, and it's here in glorious close-up for the movie's new teaser poster, which Paramount sent over this afternoon, along with a brand-new synopsis. You can check that out below as well
The script is about "a mild-mannered radio executive" (Ferrell) who wants to be the best stepfather he can be to his wife's children. This becomes complicated when their deadbeat biological father (Vaughn) returns and forces the protagonist to fight for the kids' affection.
Following up on a brief but memorable scene on screen together in Anchorman, Jack Black and Will Ferrell will be teamed up for a more prominent grouping in New Line Cinema's Tag Brothers. The two funny men will play two of the four planned starring roles for the picture, which is based on a real-life ongoing game of tag between a group of former classmates who are now adults but have yet to outgrow their beloved game.
The moment was so brief, and Plaza said so little-- when asked by Ferrell if she was ok, she just said "yup" and sat back down-- that you could believe it was an awkward encounter that neither comedian knew how to salvage. And when MTV News "reported" that Plaza had been asked to leave the show after the incident, it seemed to confirm that it was legitimate stage-crashing, and not, say, a planned stunt to promote her summer film The To-Do List
Will Ferrell – and a stand-in stunt ice skater – shot scenes at a temporary skating rink over the weekend. Security was tight on the comedy’s set (obviously), though Access Atlanta hints that photos from the Peachtree Center set might be floating around the Internet on people’s various social-media feeds.
For the first time since Old School Will Ferrell is set to get back into the college comedy world- only this time he won't be playing Frank The Tank. Instead, he will be playing a responsible father dealing with the insanity that comes with trying to get his kid into a good school.
Kristen Wiig is playing the romantic interest to Steve Carell's character in the upcoming Anchorman: The Legend Continues, but it seems that the Bridesmaids star really hit it off with Will Ferrell on the set of the new comedy - to the point where they've already lined up a new project to do together.
With the Oscars done, we can now look forward to that other major movie awards ceremony. I am, of course, referring to The 2013 MTV Movie Awards, which will be hosted, this year, by Pitch Perfect's Rebel Wilson. MTV made the announcement today that they will be honoring Will Ferrell with the "Comedic Genius Award."
Funny Or Die and Scott Steindorff's production company Scott Pictures have formed a multi-year partnership that will aim to produce two to three comedies each year. The resulting movies will aim to maintain the mix of edgy, off-kilter humor and the same kind of rough and tumble, celebrity-studded appeal of the site.
The best scene in Spike Lee's 25th Hour comes towards the end of the film when Edward Norton, Barry Pepper and Philip Seymour Hoffman are walking in the park counting down the minutes until Norton has to go to prison. Admitting his fear of being raped in jail, Norton asks his friends if they will beat the tar out of him, hoping that the other prisoners won't touch him if he's too ugly.
McKay went on to say that he wants the sequel to address the 24-hour news cycle that has created “this wall of white noise information” in our society. In addition, he’d like to continue building on the A-list supporting-cast players he had in the first Anchorman, where people like Ben Stiller and Tim Robbins popped by.
When it was revealed in August that Morgan Freeman would be joining the cast of the new Lego movie there were many that giggled because it will be a reunion between the veteran actor and Batman, who will also be in the animated film voiced by Will Arnett. But now it's getting even funnier as yet another one of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy actors has signed on for a part in the family comedy.
When a movie that has three starring roles is making its way around the depths of Hollywood, it's typically referred to as a "three hander," and never has that name been more appropriate than used in the new film that's being produced by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, Kevin Messick and Chris Henchy, a.k.a. Gary Sanchez Productions.
Whether his sparring partner helps ground him and stick to the script or joins him in the wildest improv imaginable, Ferrell is almost always better as part of a team-- and he's at it again in this week's The Campaign, in which he teams up with Zach Galifianakis that's as hilarious and absurd as it is depressingly true
From the looks of The Campaign's trailers, and especially these new fake TV spots that debuted today, the movie balances that silliness and sharp wit perfectly in every scene. Take a look at both of the ads below, in which the candidates Cam Brady and Marty Huggins face off against each other with some questionable claims
Or maybe you are like me and the Olympics don’t really do anything for ya. That’s why we have movies: to enjoy to majesty of competition through the cinematic lens. I’ve compiled a quick way to enjoy the Olympics without ever putting on a tape-delayed NBC. These movies have everything
The cast of the upcoming Twentieth Century Fox comedy The Internship already looked like a mini-Wedding Crashers reunion (with a side of Starsky & Hutch), with Owen Wilson and VInce Vaughn set to team up in starring roles. That appears to be even more the case now that Will Ferrell is set to appear in the film, which - between its cast and premise - is already brimming with potential for something really funny.
When it comes to political comedy, Will Ferrell is no novice. During his years on Saturday Night Live the comedian cemented himself into pop culture history with his brilliant and hysterical impression of George W. Bush, but it doesn’t even end there. In 2009 Ferrell took the character to Broadway, performing in “You're Welcome America,” a show directed by Adam McKay...
After making two films for HBO that explored the complications and ridiculousness of real-world politics (Recount and this year's Game Change), director Jay Roach is returning to feature films with a different, fictional political slant. In The Campaign Roach directs Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis
It's been eight years since Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy arrived in theaters. What do you suppose Ron Burgundy would look like now? As it turns out, he's just as burgundy as ever and mostly the same as we might remember him. We have our first look at Ron Burgundy for Anchorman 2 and while it isn't terribly revealing, it is particularly classy, and that counts for a lot.
While Presidential politics become both disappointingly grown-up but also annoying, what we really need is for Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis to step in and provide us some politics conducted with the level of childishness we usually expect.
"We're going to be throwing a lot of innovation at them, and they're not going to handle it well," McKay says ominously about what awaits the Channel Four news team. He says he and Ferrell only have about two percent of the story written-- or maybe half a percent, or maybe just 5 pages of notes
