It looks like Kick-Ass 2 has what it takes to close out the summer in a spectacularly R-rated fashion. This new trailer makes clear the film’s exceptional amount of ball-crunching action. Jim Carrey is truly off his meds, but we wouldn’t want him any other way. The film comes out August 16.
Colonel Stars and Stripes has a change of heart.
“Napoleon Dynamite” helmer Jared Hess will direct.

Article: The Batman is coming to IFC
Tonight at 7:15 p.m. ET we are lighting up the sky over Gotham with the Bat Signal, because the Dark Knight is coming to IFC. Tim Burton’s 1989 “Batman” is the big-screen response to the serious (and seriously violent) revisionist comic book tales of the ’80s. The film reimagines Gotham as a foreboding industrial metropolis…
“Kick-Ass 2″ comes out June 28.
It’s unclear what role — or roles — they’re up for.
Set photos show what Carrey will look like as Colonel Stars.
“The entire team loves him to bits and I’ve been a fan since I first saw him,” Millar writes.

Article: What makes a movie star?
Over on his new website Grantland.com, ESPN’s Bill Simmons has written a really interesting column called “The Movie Star.” He sets out to examine two main points — that Will Smith is the biggest movie star in the world and that Ryan Reynolds is not a movie star at all — and ultimately falls into…
Article: I Love “I Love Phillip Morris”
When a movie takes a long time to come to theaters after its festival premiere, there’s a tendency to assume the worst. We forget sometimes that festivals are more about heat than quality, and that it’s the hottest movies, not always the best ones, that are most quickly acquired and released. A lengthy interim between…
Thanks to a combination of contract/financial troubles and subject matter, “I Love You Phillip Morris” has had a tough time finding its way to American screens. The comedy stars Jim Carrey as a conman who gets caught and sent to prison, where he falls in love with fellow inmate Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor) and repeatedly…
Plenty of films don’t ever see a theatrical release, but it’s rare in this day and age for something not even get released on home video in the U.S., especially if it stars Julia Roberts or Jim Carrey. The latter, of course, has seen it happen with “I Love You Philip Morris,” the dark comedy…
Every decade has its comic icon. We envision Cary Grant as the shining light of the ’30s and ’40s, Rock Hudson for the pre-’60s transitional period, no one as the emblem of the hippie age (who could afford to have comedic icons then, aside from dabblers like Richard Pryor?), Robin Williams in the ’80s, Pauly…
Article: Let’s Get Physical (Comedy)
“Micmacs,” the new film from “Amelie” director Jean-Pierre Jeunet, may be set in modern day Paris, but stylistically it’s a throwback to older movies — particularly silent comedies and slapstick, with its elaborate, near wordless set pieces. “Micmacs” provided the inspiration for this week’s podcast, in which we talk about physical comedy, apparently both the…
Article: Great moments in MTV Movie Awards?
The nominations for this year’s MTV Movie Awards were announced yesterday, to the evident excitement of no one in particular. New categories include “Global Superstar,” “Best Scared-as-SH*T Performance” and “Biggest Badass Star”; “Twilight,” “Avatar” and “The Hangover” slaughtered everything in the nominations department, in keeping with the ceremonies’ populist bent and reputation for rewarding precisely…
Article: Thinking Outside the Box
A week loaded with oh-so-worthy awards season contenders is offset with the comic relief of Jim Carrey’s performance captured flailing, George Clooney’s self-deluded staring, and the teasing promise of an affordable(!) trip to the ballet.

Article: How to outhype “Avatar.”
Robert Zemeckis is still trying to make motion capture happen. His upcoming Jim Carrey-starring version of “A Christmas Carol” will be his third made using the process, despite the fact that neither 2004′s “The Polar Express” nor 2007′s “Beowulf” was an overwhelming triumph at the box office. There’s little indication that the public cares what…
