    By: Aly Semigran Apr 15, 2013
    When it comes to action-packed summer blockbusters vying for being the biggest at the box office, a lot of it comes down to who can blow what up in the craziest way possible. It looked like Fast & Furious 6 had already, ahem, blown the competition away when their trailer revealed that those fast and furious drivers pulling down an entire airplane with their cars, just as another car comes roaring out of the nose of the plane before it explodes.  While that's going to be awfully hard to top (it doesn't get much more needlessly excessive or utterly ridiculous than that, after all) it looks like Iron Man 3 is finding new and inventive ways to take down air crafts and lure in boom-pow-kablamo-seeking moviegoers. Get More: 2013 MTV Movie Awards, Latest Movie News During Sunday night's 2013 MTV Movie Awards, a brand new clip from the third installment of the wildly successful Iron Man franchise debuted and the 45-second-long sequence is a whole lot of noise, special effects, blood-free violence, and — you guessed it — explosions. We find Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in combat with the bad guys, with bullets whizzing by him at every turn.  When he finally suits up and becomes Iron Man (with a little help and guidance from J.A.R.V.I.S.) he fights back by throwing a piano throw from a deteriorating building and directly at a helicopter, taking it down into the ocean. Of course, not before said piano can't get in a few final tunes. If Iron Man destroying his villains and instruments, for the sake of saving humanity, is music to your ears, then watch MTV's clip above.  Iron Man 3 bursts onto the big screen on May 3. Your move, Fast & Furious.  More: 'Iron Man 3' Teaser — Watch!'Iron Man 3' Trailer: Tony Stark is Still Having 'Avengers' Nightmares'Iron Man 3' Set for $125 Million Debut: How It Fits With Superhero Trends   From Our Partners:Eva Longoria Bikinis on Spring Break (Celebuzz)33 Child Stars: Where Are They Now?

  • 'Man of Steel': Superman's Nemesis Has a Scrambled Message For You
    By: Aly Semigran Apr 15, 2013
    Zod has interrupted your regularly scheduled programming (which, on Sunday night was the astoundingly awful 2013 MTV Movie Awards, so consider it lucky) to bring you this very important announcement regarding Man of Steel: "Surrender within 24 hours...or watch this world suffer the consequences." Well, there you have it, people of Earth. Through a blurry televised message the villainous Zod (played in the upcoming Man Of Steel by Oscar-nominee Michael Shannon) gave a direct, but garbled — not Bane levels of garbled, but garbled none the less — message: he wants superhero Superman (played by Henry Cavill) back on his home planet of Krypton.  This Man of Steel spot was noticably different from the previous trailers we've seen thus far (the first three were senitmental, a look into the dark origins story, and superhero-centric respectively) and while it didn't give us much of anything, it did exactly what these sort of trailers are suppoesed to do: tease.

  • 'Veep' Season 2 Premiere: The 10 Most Blistering One-Liners
    By: Aly Semigran Apr 14, 2013
    Veep is not for the overly sensitive or deeply offended television viewer...and thank f**king goodness for that. The scathing HBO comedy about the deliriously foul-mouthed, unintentionally incompetent, and downright crazy fictitious Vice President of the United States Selina Meyer (Emmy-winner Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and her not-so-merry band of equally deliriously foul-mouthed, unintentionally incompetent, and downright crazy (played by the immensely talented likes of Anna Chlumsky, Reid Scott, Tony Hale, and Matt Walsh, among others in the ensemble) is back for a second season and things are even more cynical and brutally funny than ever.  Season 2 of the series premiered on Sunday night and the mind Armando Iannucci — the king of the blistering comeback (also see: In The Loop, The Thick Of It) — has unleashed a new string of fast and furious one-liners. With a show like Veep, the rewind function on your DVR is downright essential as the jokes are relentless and it's easy to miss one when you're still in hysterics over the one that happened right before it.  The premiere episode, the aptly titled "Midterms" which found Selina and her cabinet dealing with the stress of the midterm elections and their own personal set of crisises (from a hospitalized father to trying to sell a boat on Ebay to trying to find a lipstick, everyone had their own set of unique meltdowns and little to no compassion from anyone around them), there was the lion's share of bad words and unfiltered comebacks.  If "Midterms" is any indication of Season 2, this year of Veep will be even nastier, and in turn, more hilarious than Season 1. If nothing else, Veep (which will, no doubt, rightfully earn Julia Louis-Dreyfus more awards and accolades) will provide your new favorite lines to quote from television. Jot these down for your next fight, because here are the ten best and most blistering one-liners heard in the Season 2 premiere of Veep.  1. "I fluffed 'em, now you f**k em." - Selina2. "My eyes will say Holocaust, my mouth will say Carnivale."  - Selina 3. "Nope, it's a rape alarm. Not like she's ever gonna need that. I mean she's not ugly, but she's got a lot of security." - Gary (Hale)4. "You have as much a chance of getting the Vice President on your show as you have of getting your husband to leave that cheerleader." - Sue (Sufe Bradshaw) 5. "I don't know what those words mean. Mike, are you in the middle of some kind of aneurysm?" - Selina6. "Screw you and the face you rode in on."  - Roger (Dan Bakkedahl)7. "Jesus, I feel my virginity growing back in here." - Dan (Scott)8. "You have three kids by two different guys, maybe your last word should have been, 'No'." - Amy (Chlumsky)9. "Why don't you go and f**k yourself in your own a**hole?" - Selina 10. "It was accident. Much like when Big Foot got your mom pregnant, resulting in you."  - Mike Veep airs at 10 PM ET on Sundays on HBO.  Follow Aly on Twitter @AlySemigran More:'Veep' Star Anna Chlumsky Talks Growing Up in Hollywood, HBO, and Humor'Veep': Does the HBO Comedy Get Your Vote? Emmys 2012: The Best and Worst Moments  From Our PartnersJessica Alba Bikinis in St. Barts (Celebuzz)Which Game of Thrones Actor Looks Least Like His On-Screen Character?

  • Louis C.K.'s HBO Special 'Oh My God': Watch a Living Legend Do His Thing
    By: Aly Semigran Apr 13, 2013
    While the entire hour of Louis C.K.'s new HBO special Oh My God is an expertly crafted and unapologetically crudely hilarious hour of stand-up comedy, the final segment during the last five minutes is stuff of legends. It will rank up there with routines like George Carlin's "Seven Words You Can't Say on Television", Eddie Murphy's "Ice Cream Truck", and, well, all of Richard Pryor's catalogue. Louis C.K.'s "Of Course...But Maybe" is everything great stand-up comedy should be: daring, intelligent, and just damn funny. I'd never be able to do the segment justice (that's why he's the pro and exactly why you should watch) but just know that the critically-beloved comic is so good at what he does that he can make you laugh at the trauma of war veterans and the benefits of slavery. No kidding.  Of course, it's that very same deranged, but brilliant, sense of humor that's made Louis C.K. the Emmy-winning comedy mastermind that sells out arenas by not selling out to the man he can so relentlessly skewer. It's the reason why his his FX series Louie is so loved by fans and critics even though it can more often make you cringe and really feel, rather than laugh out loud. Louis is someone who can both ruthlessly deconstruct human behavior and social standards, and still make d**k and fart jokes. He's painfully aware of his existence and ours, and dammit if he's not going to make us all laugh in spite of ourselves and in the face of mortality. ("There's no candlelight vigils for 50-year-old guys who die," he muses in the special).  Even with that bleak, if not realistic outlook on the absurdity of life, it's crucial to remember that Louis C.K. is also a sweetly devoted, divorced father of two. His daughters are not only a huge part of his life, but his routine as a whole (both in his comedy specials and his show). He might be a twisted foul-mouth, but he's a twisted foul-mouth big old teddy bear at the core. Though parenting and and his kids are talked about in Oh My God, this 2013 special is decidedly less sentimental than Live at the Beacon Theater and Hilarious, which featured two of his best, and shockingly sweet segments. (Protecting his oldest daughter on the playground and the hilarious parental experience of dealing with a three-year-old, respectively).  In fact, Oh My God feels like a more old-school, back-to-basics version of Louis C.K. It's raunchy (there's an entire segment, if not an overly long one, on why men love boobs so very much), cynical as hell (he rightfully calls out that no one is actually watching those YouTube and Facebook videos of your kids, just blindly giving complimentary comments), and just so, so blisteringly, funny ("I'd like to make one of this 'It Gets Better' ads for just dumpy, young guys").  Oh My God  will either make you scream that phrase with laughter or shake your head in disbelief at what he's willing to say that most of us can't. It will probably be a little bit of both. But that's what makes Louis so great: he's a masterful joke and storyteller who makes you lose your mind with laughter and then make you wildly uncomfortable with your own laughter at the same time. Of course Louis C.K. is a mad genius (and Oh My God is proof positive of that), but maybe, in time, he'll end up being the greatest stand-up comedian of all-time.  Louis C.K.'s Oh My God debuts on Saturday, April 13 on HBO at 10 PM ET.  Follow Aly Semigran on Twitter @AlySemigran More:'Louie' Season 4 Will Not Air Until 2014 Louis C.K.

  • 'Go the F**k to Sleep': An R-Rated Kids Movie?
    By: Aly Semigran Apr 12, 2013
    Author/exhausted father Adam Mansbach's wildly popular 2011 children's book for parents Go the F**k to Sleep is getting the big screen treatment. Now, if visions of disappointing movies like He's just Not That Into You or TV shows S**t My Dad Says — which both took clever, of-the-moment, albeit one-note ideas and effectively made them less so — just danced in your head, you can rest a little easier. confirms that actor/writer/all-around hilarious human being Ken Marino (of Children's Hospital, Party Down, Veronica Mars, Wet Hot American Summer, and Role Models fame) and his wife Erica Oyama are adapting the delightfully foul-mouthed illustrated book for Fox 2000.  While interpretations of the best-selling book seemed like it hit a fever pitch back in 2012 when Samuel L. Jackson, the man who can turn any bad word into an art form, did the audio narration for it. After all, no one could make lines like "I know you're not thirsty. That's bulls**t. Stop lying. Lie the f**k down, my darling, and sleep" sound better than the Pulp Fiction star could.  Still, if anyone can revive the hilarious, but somewhat controversial book from its slumber, it's Marino and Oyama. Look no further than E!'s criminally underrated, but bitingly funny reality dating show parody Burning Love, which they both write and star in. Now, here's a series that in theory should only work as, say, an SNL sketch, but instead of being just funny in concept, has pitch-perfect comedy execution.  Better yet, Marino and Oyama are in a tight-knit comedy circle in Hollywood that includes the likes of Paul Rudd, Adam Scott, David Wain, Megan Mullally, Malin Akerman, June Diane Raphael, and Michael Ian Black, just to name a few. So while no casting announcements for the Go the F**k to Sleep movie have been announced, it's a pretty safe bet that a few familiar faces could pop up to tell unruly kids to, well, you know.  Another safe assumption is that Marino and Oyama probably won't take the Spike Jonze approach of what he did with another short, but beloved book with his adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are.  Instead, here are some ways we could imagine the couple tackling the already-funny source material: An all-star romantic comedy parody: Have a huge ensemble comedy like What To Expect When You're Expecting  about a group of new parents and their terrible children and then skewer the hell out of an ensemble comedy like What To Expect When You're Expecting. An all-star absurd comedy: Almost the same as above, but instead of doing a self-aware parody, just balls-out comedy nonsense on par with Wet Hot American Summer.  Keep it animated: There aren't nearly enough PG-13 or R-rated animated movies anymore. (What the hell is this generations Bebe's Kids?!) There's a reason why shows like Archer and South Park (which, admittedly, made for the best R-rated animated movie of all-time) are so f**king popular.  More: The 'Veronica Mars' Movie: Why the Charcter's Return is a Big Deal  'Burning Love' Reminds You That Your Love Life Could Be a Lot Worse — VIDEO How the 'Children's Hospital' Emmy Boosts the 'Incestuous' Short-Form Comedy World  From Our Partners:Eva Longoria Bikinis on Spring Break (Celebuzz)33 Child Stars: Where Are They Now?

  • Taylor Swift's Inspiration For '22' Apparently Came From Diet Coke — VIDEO
    By: Aly Semigran Apr 11, 2013
    Sorry, TAB, you didn't help Taylor Swift come up with the tabs for "22." Crush didn't inspire any lyrics about her crush and Pepsi-iiiiiii are never, ever, ever getting back together. Sorry guys, but it seems Diet Coke, with its appealing red lettering (how convenient, given the title of her current hit album), has wooed young Taylor.  The singer appears in a new ad for Diet Coke, so I guess you could call her a real... soda star, too. (I refuse to call it pop, you weirdos). The beverage apparently inspired Swift to write such poetic lyrics as "It feels like a perfect night to dress up like hipsters/Make fun of our exes/I don't know about you/But I'm feeling 22." Those same poetic lyrics that, apparently, make you sing along in your car, at work, and during karaoke. Now, the ad probably won't make you change your mind about Swift (if you love her, you'll continue to love her and if you don't, well you certainly won't now) but if the delicious, fizzy drink is why Swift and her songs are happening, it might just change your mind about Diet Coke. Watch the clip — which ends with a bubbly Swift heading on stage to perform and the tag line "stay extraordinary" — here:  More: '32': A Taylor Swift Parody for Grown-UpsMemo to Taylor Swift: You're a Feminist'New Girl' Bringing Taylor Swift On For Their Finale is a Viewer-Grabbing Backslide  From Our Partners:Eva Longoria Bikinis on Spring Break (Celebuzz)33 Child Stars: Where Are They Now?

  • Connie Britton Joins 'This Is Where I Leave You' Cast, The Best Ensemble in Years
    By: Aly Semigran Apr 11, 2013
    Thanks to movies along the lines of a Valentine's Day or a New Year's Eve or heaven forbid a Movie 43, all-star ensembles can often conjure up some pretty terrible thoughts. But don't let the casting news for Shawn Levy's adaptation of Jonathan Tropper's funny, heartbreaking 2009 novel This Is Where I Leave You give you cause for concern: this isn't going to be Garry Marshall's Sitting Shiva. No, the movie looks like it's on the path to becoming a well-cast eccentric family drama on par with the likes of, say, Silver Linings Playbook. Hell, I'm gonna just go ahead and say it, this looks like it has even more on-point casting than the Oscar-winner. In fact, the film is shaping up to have one of the best big name ensembles in years. Case in point: Entertainment Weekly broke the news that all-around perfect human/Mrs. Tami Taylor (one in the same, really) Connie Britton has been announced as the latest addition to the already-stellar cast.  Tropper's story (which, you should read if you haven't already — it's a sad, sexy, and often hilarious book) revolves around a Jewish family sitting Shiva for their recently-deceased father at the home of their mother (played by Jane Fonda). The wildly different, screwed-up, but good-at-the-core Foxman siblings are at the center of the story — played by Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Corey Stoll, and Adam Driver — but the supporting characters boast equally impressive names.  Britton will play the girlfriend of Driver's character, the youngest of the brood and the black sheep. A therapist, her character can deconstruct the Foxman clan with pinpoint precision, but can't seem to see that her too-young boyfriend won't give her the grown-up relationship she wants. Adding to the on-the-nose casting of This Is Where I Leave You is Timothy Olyphant as the Foxmans' neighbor who once suffered a brain injury and was Fey's character's first great love; Kathryn Hahn as Stoll's sexually frustrated wife; Rose Byrne as Bateman's potential new love interest (in addition to dealing with his father's death, his character also has to come to grips with his estranged, pregnant wife played by Abigail Spencer); and Ben Schwartz as their rabbi (Rabbi Jean-Ralphio in the mix!) in the Warner Bros. project.  Supporting characters still apparently up for grabs: the shock jock boss with whom Bateman's wife has an affair, and the Olyphant character's mother, who is close to the Foxman matriarch. (Looking at you, Aaron Eckhart and Kathy Bates!) This Is Where I Leave You, which also has Tropper on board as the screenwriter (always a smart move with adaptations), is reportedly scheduled to begin shooting with its A-list cast in May. Its eventual release date can't come soon enough.  More:'Beautiful Ruins' Movie Officially in the Perfect Hands'Nashville' Cast Teases Major Relationship Changes 'Girls' Casting Call Gives Us Hints For Season 3 From Our Partners:Eva Longoria Bikinis on Spring Break (Celebuzz)33 Child Stars: Where Are They Now?

  • Controversial Rape Verse By Rick Ross Dropped From Rocko Song 'U.O.E.N.O.'
    By: Aly Semigran Apr 10, 2013
    Who could have guessed that in this horrifying era of "rape culture" (from the headline-grabbing Steubenville case to the harrowing story about the suicide of alleged teenaged sexual assault victim Rehtaeh Parsons) that an obviously offensive verse in a song that goes, “Put Molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it/ I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it" would raise so many eyebrows and push so many wrong buttons? Certainly not the rappers behind the song "U.O.E.N.O.," Rick Ross and Rocko. Well, not at first anyway.  Now that the fury surrounding the song has reached a fever pitch with outrage coming from groups and fellow artists alike, Rocko has decided to cut the controversial Rick Ross verse in question. But Rocko, who discussed the decision to change the remix with rap station HOT 97 FM, isn't doing it for sensitivity matters, but rather "because of the type of traction that the record has as far as radio, it puts me in a position where I have to change it." Rocko, who said he didn't want to take Ross off the track during the interview, added, "I have like six different verses from all types of different, talented artists, some multi-platinum. Some might have even have bigger accomplishments like Grammys and things of that nature." (You can listen to the entire exchange here).  Ross, on the other hand, tried to apologize for the song. Well, sort of. He mostly claimed that the verse was simply "misinterpreted" and apologized for the misinterpretation, not the meaning behind the lyric. Last month the hip-hop star stopped by a radio show to state that women are  "the most precious gift known to man. Ya understand? It was a misunderstanding with a lyric. A misinterpretation where the term 'rape' wasn’t used. I would never use the term 'rape' in my records.... The streets don’t condone that. Nobody condones that, ya understand? So, I just wanted to reach out to all the queens that’s on my timeline. All the sexy ladies, the beautiful ladies that had been reaching out to me with the misunderstanding… we don’t condone rape and I’m not with that." He also took to Twitter in the wake of the outrage over the song to post, "Apologies to my many business partners,who would never promote violence against women. @ReebokClassics @ultraviolet." According to Billboard, Reebok has been called out by a group of rape survivors to cut their ties with Ross for the song.  More:10 Worst Quotes from Brad Paisley's Still-Racist Apology for 'Accidental Racist' Brad Paisley and LL Cool J's Song 'Accidental Racist' is (Whoops!)

  • Adam Scott to Make 'The Greatest Event in Television History' Again, This Time with Amy Poehler
    By: Aly Semigran Apr 10, 2013
    Adam Scott made the greatest announcement in television history: he'll be doing another installment of The Greatest Event in Television History. Scott, who broke the news to Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night's episode of Late Night, said this time around he'll be joined by his Parks and Recreation leading lady Amy Poehler and Saturday Night Live alum Horatio Sanz. Jon Hamm (pictured here with Scott in the original), as you'll recall, died in the first one while attempting to recreate the opening credits to the, er, "classic"  detective series Simon & Simon.  Though Scott lovingly described making the first one with his buddy Hamm as "really, really, very stupid" and "a lot of work and a total waste of time," the actor is, thankfully, making more of them. Three more of them, in fact. The first new one with Poehler and Sanz will air on June 6 on Adult Swim. While Scott wouldn't give any major details away, he did say it would be recreating another "hourlong show." Presumably — and hopefully — another unintentionally hilarious drama from the '80s with a great theme song and even greater facial hair.  Watch Scott's official announcement about The Greatest Event in Television History sequel to Fallon (who apparently missed the boat on the first one) and the brilliant original below:    More: Amy Poehler and Adam Scott Reteam in Excellent 'A.C.O.D''Parks and Recreation' Recap: A Lawsuit, A Key, and a Test (Oh My!)Marc Maron Puts All His Famous Friends On Display in 'Maron' Trailer  From Our PartnersJessica Alba Bikinis in St. Barts (Celebuzz)Pics of The Rock Making Things Look Small (Vulture)
