It’s Saturday, so it’s time for another round of the Entertainment Link-Off. It’s a decent showing at the movies this weekend as we get three films all worthy of a look. First there’s the sci-fi comedy Paul starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Then there’s Matthew McConaughey channeling his inner lawyer once again in The Lincoln Lawyer. Finally there’s the thriller on a faux wonderdrug called Limitless starring Bradley Cooper and Abbie Cornish (pictured).
After the jump, the Chinese are no longer the villains in Red Dawn, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reenact Star Wars, manchildren are in danger according to Ben Stiller, Wile E Coyote reenacts 127 Hours, Elmo gets tickled and video responses to that rant about Asians by UCLA student Alexandra Wallace.
What was once a sinophobic film has suddenly decided to shift its tone. Afraid that they’ll piss off the Chinese even more, the folks behind the Red Dawn remake decided to make the villains to be North Korean instead. (LA Times)
While promoting their latest film Paul in Nevada, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost decided to re-enact a scene from the original Star Wars. So it might not be the most faithful adaptation, it’s actually quite fun to watch. (College Humor)
Simon Pegg speaks about his latest film Paul but also discusses about why Scott Pilgrim vs. the World failed to connect with the wide audience. (Movieline)
One of the things I love about Kevin Smith is that he’s a huge hockey fan, which is why I’m really looking forward to his flick Hit Somebody. While it might be a while before he actually gets cracking on it (due to Red State tour and whatnot), he did publish a scene from the movie for our reading pleasure. (Slashfilm)
Didn’t think this would happen. Jason Biggs, Sean William Scott and Eugene Levy reunites for ANOTHER American Pie film… (The Wrap)
St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone but that doesn’t mean we can’t look back at 9 of the most fun movie drunks! (Movieline)
This is from Friday’s edition of Onion News Network featuring Ben Stiller. In the dramatized PSA, he admits that he is a recovering manchild and a vigilant supporter of Shaken Manchild Syndrome (“the second leading cause of death among adult children after choking on buffalo wings”) sufferers. Why is he doing this? Turns out the majority of his fanbase is manchildren. Have a look for a good laugh. (IFC)
Here’s the question of the day: should all TV shows be killed off after two seasons like Ricky Gervais’ series? In other words, should we let our favourite shows go out on a high note instead of letting it drag on for years? (Pop Matters)
Good news and bad news Everwood fans. The bad news is that the DVD release of its 4th and final season has been delayed from June 14th to August 2nd. The good news is that the reason for the delay is to include the filmed alternate ending that never made it to air on TV! (TV Shows on DVD)
Good news! NBC’s Community has been renewed for a third season! NBC has done something right! Now let’s keep it going with the renewal of Chuck as well! (TV by the Numbers)
It’s a crazy Community bonanza at Paley Fest 2011! (HitFix)
Here’s a rundown on the biggest moneymakers in TV. It’s probably not much of a surprise once you find out who tops the list. (Forbes)
Over at Lowdown HQ, we all love Adrianne Palicki, but the first look at NBC’s new Wonder Woman series doesn’t look all that promising. (Deadline)
Congratulations Zune owners, you are now officially in possession of an artifact! Windows will stop producing the low-demand music device due to lackluster sales. (Bloomberg)
So part 1 of the final installment of the Harry Potter film felt like half a movie and left us all hanging until part 2 arrives in July. In the meantime, the latest featurette contains a few more new footage to wet our appetites.
A followup to the body hump workout, Jimmy Kimmel returns with more eye candy and a new diet plan!
Here’s a fun look at Wile E. Coyote re-enacting 127 Hours.
Being a huge Elmo fan, I really wish I could attend the screenings for Being Elmo. Not only will I get to watch a fascinating documentary, there’s also the chance to interact with the red puppet itself. Take a look at this example where a man fulfills his lifelong dream to tickle the real Elmo.
I’m sure everyone has heard or seen the rant video on Youtube where UCLA student Alexandra Wallace decided to complain about Asians at the university. Well here’s an unusual but fun response to the video done in a rather catchy song!
Or if you’re in for a good laugh that’s a bit more crude, perhaps this angry response is more for you.
