  2. Netflix Will Reportedly Distribute the New Pee-wee Herman Movie

    According to leaked emails—HA! No. Wrong company.

    Pee-wee Herman himself, Paul Reubens, has been taunting us with news about the upcoming Pee-wee movie almost habitually, but now he's not the only source of nostalgia-fueled torment. It's been reported that Netflix is close to a deal to distribute the movie/make our dreams come true.

  3. Paul Reubens Pee-wee Herman-ifies the Ultron Trailer and Announces New Pee-wee Movie, Mostly

    I love this so much. Why don't I marry it?

    Jimmy Fallon does a pretty spot-on Pee-wee Herman voice when he redubs movie trailers, but you know who does a better one? Paul Reubens himself. He stopped by The Tonight Show to stir up more excitement about his upcoming, Judd Apatow-produced Pee-wee movie and showed Fallon how it's done on the Age of Ultron trailer.

  6. Stop What You’re Doing And Go Follow Mel Brooks On Twitter

    This week Comedy Central is hosting a comedy festival on Twitter. Part of the festival involves an event with Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner hosted by Judd Apatow. As I said last week, during this event Apatow was going to try to convince Brooks to join Twitter, and it looks like it worked. So far he's only tweeted obligatory "This is my first tweet" with a link to the live stream of the event, but Brooks is a comedy genius and I'm really looking forward to what he does with his Twitter account.

  7. Comedy Central Will Host #ComedyFest Comedy Festival on Twitter and Vine

    My Twitter feed is a pretty even balance between news sources I trust and comedians I enjoy, but next week it's probably going to lean heavily to the comedy side of things. That's because Comedy Central is hosting a comedy festival on Twitter by having comedians post jokes with the hashtag #ComedyFest and upload short clips to Vine.

  8. Judd Apatow Gives Advice to Teen Girls: Be Yourself, Boys Gossip Too, Being Healthy Is More Important Than Looking “Good”

    Consider the Following

    Rookie magazine is doing a series of videos where they ask celebrities who are generally considered to have their thumb of what modern culture considers "masculine" to answer questions and give advice to teenage girls. Last time it was Don Draper himself, John Hamm, who explained that everybody farts, so girls shouldn't be embarrassed about doing it in front of their boyfriends. This time, it's Judd Apatow, who his other man-centric movies notwithstanding, did make sure that Bridesmaids happened, getting perfectly honest with some teens and their problems. We can get behind everything he says here... except maybe his singing voice. (via The Jane Dough.)

    I'm In A Glass Case of Emotion

    By the hammer of Thor, it's officially official: Anchorman is coming back. The announcement was made by Will Ferrell, in character as the titular anchorman Ron Burgundy, on Conan last night. What a glorious day! View the announcement after the jump, and let's rejoice as a nation, here "in the Americas" and the UK, "including England."

  10. Kristen Wiig Said There Won’t Be a Bridesmaids Sequel, So Universal Can Stop Trying to Make One Now

    No. No no no no no no no. no.

    Not one of the people who made Bridesmaids a success last year supported a sequel to the comedy hit, the only saving grace for the idea being the return of every single person from the original. Well, the woman responsible for the movie existing in the first place, Golden Globe nominee Kristen Wiig, has put the nail in the coffin, saying there will not be another matrimonial outing. So, let's please stop throwing around the idea that this will happen, with or without her. Okay? Okay.

  11. Don’t Hold Your Breath for a Bridesmaids Sequel

    Cautiously Optimistic

    The Hollywood Reporter picks apart the reason why we haven't seen much news about a Bridesmaids sequel, despite a 900% return on their investment of $32 million in the film. In a time when plans for a sequel are often announced prior to the release of the previous film, it does seem mysterious that Universal wouldn't be hungry for Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo to combine their powers for a second installment. "We aren't working on that," says Wiig, "Annie and I aren't planning a sequel. We are writing something else."

  12. Confirmed Funny Lady Leslie Mann Says Megan Fox Is “Hilarious”

    i'll just leave this here

    Leslie Mann, that very funny lady who has been showing up in various comedy roles since her feature film debut in 1996's The Cable Guy and is known as one of the most reliable comedic actresses of our time, was asked about details surrounding the Knocked Up spinoff that will feature the couple played by herself and Paul Rudd. Not much has come out concerning the new movie, which is set to be released next year, but we do know that both Annie Mumolo (co-writer of Bridesmaids) and Megan Fox are in it. Well, we know that the former of those women, for sure, has proven her comedy chops. But what about Fox? According to Mann, she's doing just fine. Actually, better than fine.

  13. Judd Apatow Takes a Victory Lap Through Nikki Finke’s Inbox

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    Needless to say, Judd himself used the occasion to bitchslap me over my pre-release belief that the R-rated comedy featuring women burping and farting for our female amusement wouldn't have an opening domestic weekend bigger than $13M, even $15M tops, before it actually debuted with $26.2M: "I am so delighted to confirm that I was right and you were wrong," Apatow emailed me for posting here. "From now on when you say something which hurts me, I will remember to read your early Bridesmaids opinions and predictions and that will soothe me." Ouch! -- Deadline's Nikki Finke, on the email she received from Judd Apatow after Bridesmaids officially surpassed Knocked Up as the producer's biggest box office success. We're disappointed, Nikki Finke. Have a little faith for the sisterhood next time, wouldja? (Deadline)

  14. Bridesmaids Expected to Surpass All the Rest of Judd Apatow’s Films at Box Office

    We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty

    Hollywood usually needs a little push to do anything really worthwhile, and that push usually comes from those small, flat, rectangular green things that seem to rule over us all. And though Judd Apatow has made many of those rectangles in the past with what the world has branded notoriously "male" humor, this time it's the ladies who are raking it in for him, and big time. Bridesmaids is still selling tickets like mad, and has so far earned $146.5 million at the box office, which puts it within spitting distance of surpassing Knocked Up, Apatow's biggest hit to date (which earned $148.7 million, just over 500,000 more than Talladega Nights). The key thing to keep in mind: the words so far.

  16. Review: Bridesmaids Is Exactly What We’ve Needed

    Review

    Like us, after being bombarded with trailers and ads for this weekend's Bridesmaids, you were probably wondering if the movie was actually "The Hangover with women" or just being billed that way. Sure, it's not a movie with a superhero in it, but it's being marketed as an alternative to the chick flick for women, so we consider it to be close to our realm of coverage. We're all savvy media consumers here, and we know that ads aren't always what they seem. So when given a chance to check it out, we readily accepted and can tell you confidently: Bridesmaids is not Something Borrowed. It has neither Kate Hudson nor Katherine Heigl in it. It is not a "typical chick flick," nor is it quite a "gratuitous gross-out comedy." This is safe territory. We would never lead you astray. This movie, while not what you'd typically call "geeky," could certainly be classified as "comedy geeky," considering the cast, the people behind it, and the fact that those of us women closely connected to the comedy field finally have a movie where we get to tell the jokes and drive the story. And without the goal of romantic love. Finally. That said: Bridesmaids is an awesome comedy featuring a predominantly female cast and will probably change how female-geared comedy movies will be viewed in the future. That's the tiniest bit hyperbolic, but it's been a long time since I, as a woman, walked out of a movie feeling like I was truly invited to the party.

  17. Head = Explode: Judd Apatow Teaming Up with Pee-wee Herman to Make a Movie

    Despite the fact that it sounds totally made up, this is fantastic news that is real: Directorbro Judd Apatow is teaming up with Paul Reubens, a.k.a. Pee-wee Herman, to make "an untitled Pee-wee Herman feature," Variety reports. While Apatow doesn't plan on directing the film -- the director's chair is as yet unfilled -- his production company Apatow Productions will be backing the movie, which is to be written by Reubens and Paul Rust, who played one of the titlular Basterds in Inglourious Basterds and starred in I Love You Beth Cooper.

  18. New. Kick-Ass. Red Band. Trailer.

    So: Lionsgate has just released a new trailer for Kick-Ass, the awesome-looking real life superhero movie based on the Mark Millar comic of the same name. Be warned: it is a red band, and if you didn't know that when you read the title of this post, entered your date of birth information, and saw the red band on the fringes, you will when you hear the stream of profanity in the first 10 seconds or so of the trailer. If you're not already a Kick-Ass fan or Mark Millar acolyte, it's hard not to fall in love with the movie at least a little bit when you watch this. (Disclaimer: this past sentence represents the views of an 18-35 demo male.) There's so much to like:
