It’s kind of amazing that Larry David has never hosted SNL, and up until recently he had never really appeared on the show, either (save for a couple of tiny appearances back in the ’80s). David only managed to get one sketch on the show in the year he spent writing for SNL back in 1984–85, but now, after Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm and a couple of cold open cameos as Bernie Sanders, David finally has his chance to host. How did he do? Read on for our ranking of this week’s sketches from best to worst.
Deadpool hits theaters on Valentine’s Day weekend, offering some wildly violent and profane counter-programming to your typical romantic offerings, though the people at Fox have been doing their best to promote the love story aspect of the film. Two new promos have arrived online, offering a little something for everyone on this special holiday.
Leonardo DiCaprio arguably went Peak Leo with The Revenant, a film that is essentially a two-hour frontier-style reimagining of his quaalude scene in The Wolf of Wall Street. While we wait to find out whether all his suffering and bison liver-eating and vape withdrawals will pay off with a long-deserved Oscar, DiCaprio is already going back to work with one of the screenwriters of The Revenant on a new film that will presumably torture the actor once more.
A new Gremlins film has been in development for several years, with a handful of different writers attached at various points. Last we heard, the new installment in the franchise will take a Jurassic World-style approach, essentially operating as a legacyquel that takes place 30 years later and maintains the canon from the previous films while introducing new characters. While we wait for more updates on Gremlins 3, two of the writers who previously developed ideas for the sequel have shared their rejected pitch, which basically sounds like Mogwais on a Plane.
Gods of Egypt is looking to get in on some of that Super Bowl hype with its very own prime TV spot, which has arrived online ahead of tomorrow's big game, proving that even the most ridiculous movies need some Super Bowl attention — actually, this one could really use it. Alex Proyas' new fantasy-action film has drawn plenty of scorn for its mostly-white cast and its abundance of CGI silliness, and the best case scenario is that we've found this year's Winter's Tale.
Like Tim Burton’s Superman movie, George Miller’s Justice League is one of the great “what ifs” of movies that almost happened. And like Burton’s film, there’s a documentary in the works that will explore Miller’s concept for the Justice League movie and just what happened to it. Until then, Miller himself has offered an explanation, but if you were looking for some juicy gossip you might be a little disappointed.
Even though Steve Rogers is gearing up to head into battle with about half of the people he considers friends, that hasn’t stopped the hero from participating in Facebook’s #FriendsDay. The official Captain America account shared its very own video montage celebrating all of Steve’s friends and a couple of his soon-to-be foes.
This week CBS announced plans for a MacGyver reboot TV show, featuring a younger version of the character portrayed by Richard Dean Anderson on the classic series. James Wan — who was previously attached to direct a MacGyver film — will direct the pilot, but just in case that doesn’t work out, Lionsgate has announced that they’re (still) developing a MacGyver movie.
In what sounds like something truly special, Seth Rogen, Zach Galifianakis and Bill Hader will combine their comedic forces for The Something, the directorial debut from 22 Jump Street scribe Rodney Rothman. The project has been percolating for a while, but it looks as though Rothman and Co. are finally ready for take-off with the space-set comedy.
Rather than debut a TV spot or a new teaser, Warner Bros. has unleashed its first non-trailer promo for Suicide Squad via Instagram — you know, because that’s where all the cool kids are these days, and Suicide Squad is a movie for cool kids who take 800 selfies and have a Hot Topic frequent shopper card and an ironic appreciation of Jared Leto’s Joker sporting a grill. Does David Ayer’s super villain movie have a type? Not really, but it’s fun to guess.
