Article: Kick-Ass 2 Unveils New Red Band Trailer

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.

The Batman is coming to IFC

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…

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…

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…

Owen Wilson, from comedic great to Great Dane.

Article: Owen Wilson, from comedic great to Great Dane.

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…

Let’s Get Physical (Comedy)

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…
