Will Cam Neely return for Dumb & Dumber To?
Ok, we all watched and, for the most part, enjoyed the Dumb & Dumber To trailer this week. It looks as though Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are harking back to the original for plenty of nostalgic references, which is fair enough, but there was one element of the classic 1994 movie that got no mention.
Jim Carrey stars in Dumb & Dumber To
Tom Neely’s Seabass character was one of the highlights of the original and we were delighted when we saw the hockey star’s name on the IMDB’s credits list for the sequel. However, Neely was nowhere to be seen in the trailer – which left us wondering.

Harry and Lloyd are back and perhaps even dumb and dumber.
It’s been 20 years since we last saw Harry and Lloyd, but cinema’s two most loveable idiots are back this November for their long awaited sequel, Dumb and Dumber To. We’ve just had our first look at the trailer which gives us a good idea of what to expect from the boys two decades on. We wouldn't have ever thought Harry and Lloyd could teach us much, but here’s 10 things we learnt from the The Dumb and Dumber To trailer.
Harry and Lloyd are back and even dumber
1. It’s been 20 years…

The Dumb and Dumber 2 trailer is here.
The absurd Dumb and Dumber To trailer hit on Tuesday evening (June 10, 2014), delighting fans of the original comedy classic with a new level of slapstick - a new level of awful. In a good way. As the camera loops in over the metal institution in which Jim Carrey's character Lloyd Christmas is holed up - everything has that lovely 90's warmth about it.
The Dumb and Dumber To Trailer Hit On Tuesday
Sure, there's a degree of nostalgia here. Plenty of nostalgia in fact. Lloyd and his partner in crime Harry (Jeff Daniels) reference numerous lines from the original movie and there's a couple of gross out moments that wouldn't have been out of place in the instantly forgettable spin-off Dumb & Dumberer, however, this first trailer suggests Carrey and Daniels are onto another good thing.

Prepare to be inspired by Jim Carrey and his amazing way with words.
Graduates of the Maharishi University Of Management got a special treat last weekend when they not only witnessed Jim Carrey receive his honorary doctorate, they also got to hear him make an emotional and inspirational speech. Taking to the podium, Carrey delivered his many words of wisdom with a smile, offering some sincere and heartfelt to anyone with a dream to follow and making sure every graduate left feeling a little less fearful of the future.
Jim Carey received an honorary doctorate from the Iowa university
Carrey’s speech was of course packed with as many laughs as you’d expect from the rubber faced comedian, but what was more memorable was the advice he gave to the young graduates. Drawing from his own personal experiences and that of his father, Carey encouraged all of us to follow our dreams and not be afraid to ask the universe for big things.

The Truman Show is coming to television, but can it find an audience in the 21st century?
The Truman Show is joining the ever growing list of movies which are being resurrected for the small screen. Paramount has just announced it’s developing the 1998 movie into a television series soon, i.e. a scripted series not a reality show based on the movie. Although robbed of an Oscar, the film has remained a much loved and still critically acclaimed piece of late 90s cinema, but will it be able to find an audience on the small screen in the 21st century?
The Truman Show is coming to television
The Truman Show is one of those films which has since been called ‘eerily prophetic’. Indeed the 1998 movie seemed to unwittingly predict our current celebrity culture and television viewing. In the film Jim Carey starred as Truman Burbank, who was unknowingly the star of his own reality television programme, The Truman Show. Truman had been taken from birth to be the focus of the 24 hours a day 7 days a week reality show which was watched by the entire world. But as Truman grows older he started to realise that certain aspects of his life were a little strange and repetitive, leading him to question his ‘reality’.

The 1998 classic starring Jim Carrey is getting a TV show of its own
For a film that depicted one man’s journey as he unwittingly became a staple diet of American’s TV-watching public, it’s perhaps fitting that The Truman Show should be adapted for the small screen by Paramount.
Image: The Truman Show soundtrack
The studio, as Paramount exec Amy Powell told The Wrap, will be looking to use a host of content to make the series happen. Including The Truman Show itself, their owned novels, screenplays and non-fiction that could all contribute to the development of a small screen adaptation.

Get ready for the 'Dumb and Dumber' sequel which is finally coming at the end of the year.
It’s been twenty years since the first ‘Dumb and Dumber’ movie and later this year we’re set to join the dimwitted duo in the long-awaited sequel. With a release set for November, let’s bring you up to speed on ‘Dumb and Dumber To’.
Dumb and Dumber To - here's an example of the laughs...
Twenty years is a very long time in-between movies and for a while it really seemed as though we would never see Harry and Lloyd’s on-screen reunion. The sequel was first hinted at by the Farley brothers in 2012 and things seemed to be moving forward until the project hit a speed bump in the summer. The original cast seemed to be on board and suddenly the studio, Warner Bros., didn't seem interested in reviving the characters again, causing Jim Carrey to drop out of the project.

The legend of San Diego's Channel 4 news team may have long since dissolved over the years, but anchors Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind are set to return as part of a brand new 24-hour news channel. In a bid to innovate newsreading and once again come out on top over Ron's wife and rival Veronica, they decide that they're going to give viewers the news they want to hear rather than what they need to. As usual, their antics involve the usual scandal and debauchery, putting their careers and tarnished reputations once again in the media's line of fire. No matter though, as these co-workers have each other's backs all the way.
Harry's in, Lloyd's down: what could possibly be bad about the 'Dumb & Dumber' sequel?
The long-awaited Dumber and Dumber sequel, titled Dumb and Dumber To, has finally been given a release date as filming for the follow-up to the oft-quoted 1994 movie continues. Set 20 years later, the movie will revisit bungling friends Harry Dunne and Lloyd Christmas 20 years after their first adventure.
Does Jim Carrey Even Have To Try To Act?
So let's lay out what we know so far about the 2014 movie.
The appearance of Andy Kaufman's daughter appears to be the only true hoax linked to the late comedian's death.
The woman who appeared on stage and claimed to be the daughter of late comedian Andy Kaufman was part of a hoax, according to reports on a US website. Kaufman's brother Michael has been implicated in the elaborate hoax, but denies he had any part in hiring the actress.
Alexandra Tatarsky appeared at the 9th Annual Andy Kaufman awards at the Gothan Comedy Club in New York on Monday evening (11th November). She claimed, standing alongside Kaufman's brother Michael, that Kaufman's death in 1984 was a hoax and that the comedian had merely retired to be "a stay-at-home dad."
TMZ obtained video footage of the announcement in which Tatarsky awkwardly discussed her home life. She claimed her 'father' was touched by the awards and watched them on YouTube every year. Tatarsky continued by saying her 'father' had planned on attending the awards ceremony as he wasn't sure how long he could continue hiding "this part of himself."

The news used to be a noble profession before the likes of Ron Burgundy with his set of San Diego anchors Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind took over. Now it's all about scandal, debauchery and vulgarity and Burgundy and his team are fighting hard to keep it that way. As per usual, they manage to get themselves in all kinds of trouble involving drugs in the studio, completely inappropriate news headlines, accidental racism (not to mention homophobia) and, of course, getting laid, and it's all in a bid to remain on top of the media as Ron fights his own battle to professionally tower over his wife and rival Veronica.
'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' is the even more hilarious sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy'. There's definitely more laughs to be had from everyone's favourite news readers as Judd Apatow ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall') returns to produce it. Director Adam McKay ('Step Brothers', 'The Other Guys', 'Talladega Nights') is also back alongside his co-writer and star Will Ferrell. It is set to feature in cinemas just in time for Christmas, premiering in theatres everywhere on December 20th 2013.
Jim Carrey is applauded as he arrives at a photo session during the meet and greet book signing for his children's book 'How Roland Rolls' at New York bookstore Barnes and Noble. He shakes various attendees hands before posing for photos next to a poster while clutching a copy of the book.
Ron Burgundy compares a Dodge Durango's horsepower to that of an actually horse before insulting it and challenging it to a staring contest in the new clip from upcoming 'Anchorman' sequel 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues'.
Jennifer Lawrence in Dumb and Dumber? Sounds good to us.
Jennifer Lawrence is everywhere these days – including, as it turns out, Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels’ Dumb and Dumber sequel, Dumb and Dumber To. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar-winning actress is currently filming The Hunger Games: Mockingjay at a set nearby and she recently spent a day on the Dumb and Dumber To location, along with the entire Mockingjay cast.
Carrey and co. recently had a surprise guest on set.
The actress reportedly used the occasion to lend her own star power to the next installment in the story of Harry and Lloyd. According to THR, Lawrence will play a younger version of Kathleen Turner’s character. This installment in the franchise will track Harry and Lloyd’s adventures as they embark on a road trip to find Lloyd’s long lost daughter. So far, Turner, Rachel Melvin, Laurie Holden, Steve Tom and Rob Riggle have all been announced to be on the cast.

With a sequel to the twenty-year-old film 'Dumb and Dumber' on the horizon, Jim Carrey has begun to show off his chipped tooth to let his inner "'Lloyd' hang out".
Jim Carrey let his inner "'Lloyd' hang out", by choosing to not cover up his famously chipped tooth in public. The dental deficiency gained attention almost 20 years ago, when Carey used it to show off the lovable but stupid nature of his character, Lloyd Christmas, in the cult comedy 'Dumb and Dumber'. With a sequel on the horizon, the film funny-man has decided to show off the tooth, to lighten to moods of his fans.
With Carrey and co-star, Jeff Daniels, filming in Georgia, the famous tooth has been proudly on display both on and off the set. While speaking to Ellen DeGeneres on her television talk-show, Carey revealed that "I just decided there's a moment in your life when you just gotta let your 'Lloyd' hang out. I have a bonding on it most of the time and now I don't. But I've decided to just live with it - it's fun. Because wherever I go, people laugh in my face and ask me to open beers for them and stuff. It's really kind of a blast."
Our prayers have finally been answered.
The news has hit that there is a Dumb and Dumber sequel in the works. Fans of the original 1994 movie should hold on to their hats because it appears that Jim Carrey will be reprising his role as Lloyd Christmas in the ridiculously bad-taste comedy about two stupid friends who bumble their way through life with great big dopey smiles on their faces.
GESS HUUZ BAK BICHEZ? http://t.co/CK4VkZy5Ua— Jim Carrey (@JimCarrey) September 8, 2013
New writer-director Wadlow (Never Back Down) makes one severe misstep with this sequel to Matthew Vaughn's snappy 2010 Kick-Ass: he loses the irony. Now everything is played for goofy laughs and indulgent grisliness. There's no longer any subtext, nothing original in the structure or premise and a clear fear of being politically incorrect. Even so, it's an entertaining romp with a steady stream of funny gags.
After the craziness of the first film, Dave (Taylor-Johnson) has hung up his Kick-Ass costume and is trying to be a regular teen at school, but he's jealous of Mindy (Moretz) secretly carrying on her training as Hit Girl. So he asks her to team up and teach him some new tricks. But when her guardian (Chestnut) finds out, she promises to give up the violence and go back to school. Now Dave has to find a new partner, so he joins a lively team of underground heroes led by the gung-ho Captain Stars and Stripes (Carrey). But Dave's old nemesis Chris (Mintz-Plasse) still wants to avenge his father's death, so he abandons his dodgy heroic alter-ego Red Mist and instead becomes a supervillain called The Mother F**ker, with his own butler-assistant (Leguizamo) and a crew of minions.
Wadlow briskly leaps from one action set-piece to the next, and each scene has a witty sense of humour about it, even if the extreme violence is played for rather glamorised fun rather than the shock-value of the first film. Through everything, the dialog is packed with amusing lines that keep us laughing. And Mindy's parallel plot has its moments as well, throwing her in with the school's mean girls, who clearly don't know who they're messing with. Moretz plays Mindy so well that she makes everyone else feel scruffy and simplistic by comparison. Carrey's muscled meathead is a startlingly against-type role that strangely refuses to go anywhere. But Glen is rivetingly sharp in one key scene.

Miller defends his franchise for... the millionth time.
It may not an actual word, but Kick Ass creator Mark Miller is pretty sure that Kick Ass 2 unglamorizes violence, instead of the popular opinion that it in fact glamorizes it. The news comes on the eve of the film’s U.K release, and after Jim Carrey withdrew support for it on Twitter.
Chloe Moretz stars in Kick Ass 2
"In many films you don't see the grieving or the pain but in Kick-Ass you feel every blow... It's a very real take on violence and it almost unglamourises it," Miller explained to the BBC. "Jim Carrey's character ironically is a born-again Christian who refuses to carry a gun because... he doesn't want to be a negative role model for children."
Mark Millar claims 'Kick Ass 2' actually depicts a very real interpretation of violence.
Mark Millar, the creator of the Kick-Ass comic book, has fired back at critics who claim his films are too violent though didn't necessarily deny the claims.
Hollywood comedy actor Jim Carrey - who plays a vigilante in the sequel - is boycotting promotional duties on the film saying he can no longer support the project following the Sandy Hook school massacre.
Is Kick Ass 2 Going To Be Too Violent?
The hotly anticipated comic book film has a great new trailer, watch it below.
Kick Ass was the surprise hit of 2010; the ultra-violent adaption from the comic book by Mark Miller was a cheap, successful movie, and now it’s back with an even bigger roster of stars, and is set to build upon the success of its predecessor.
Chloe Moretz Kicking Ass
Just in case you didn’t know, the original saw Aaron Johnson (Dave Lizewski) become a vigilante super hero called Kick Ass, fully unaware that Nicolas Cage (Damon MacReady) and Chloe Moretz (Mindy MacReady) were already protecting the city from criminals as Big Daddy and Hit Girl. They join forces to battle the criminal syndicate helmed by Christoper Mintz-Plasse’s father.

Dave and Mindy have been forced to abandon their Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl monikers following the defeat of ruthless crime boss Frank D'Amico and the death of Mindy's father Big Daddy. Dave goes back to his school life, while Mindy enrols alongside with him and struggles to fit in amongst her fellow female classmates. However, their 'normal lives' don't last when a new group of masked crime-fighters hit the streets led by the patriotic Colonel Stars and Stripes and they decide it's time to do what they think's right and join with them. It's just as well too, as D'Amico's vengeful son Red Mist has adopted a new alter-ego, The Motherf*****, and is attempting to rally an army of supervillains - with names like Black Death, Mother Russia and Genghis Carnage - to take Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl down.

This years annual Comic-Con saw the world premiere of'Agents of SHIELD,' an abundance of 'GoT' talk, TV schedule announcements galore and a host of other exciting announcements from the world of television and movies and more.
At the Mecca of Geekdom - the San Diego Comic-Con International - the annual Comic-Con kick started in front of an eager audience this Thursday (July 18), with the our-day event already revealing some rather juicy pieces of information about what future films and TV shows have in store. Here's what we know so far, following the first two days of geeky gossip at the annual gathering.
Smulders appeared in the 'Agents' pilot
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was one of the biggest talking points of the firsts two days, as ABC's Avenger's spin-off was discussed by a panel including Avengers director Joss Whedon and Agents... star Clark Gregg. Gregg discussed the miraculous recovery of his Avengers character Agent Phil Coulson, who was 'killed' by Loki in the first Avengers film only to return in time for his own starring series. Revelers got more than just a frank talk, as they were treated to a world premiere of the pilot episode for Agents..., which featured fellow Avengers star Cobie Smulders and was directed by Whedon. For those of you who weren't at Comic-Con, the series premieres on September 24.
Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind have now hit the eighties and things are a little different. The legendary San Diego news anchors are now embarking on a different project, as part of a 24 hour news channel, but now they have fresh competition in the form of a young, handsome and well-dressed fellow anchor. Ron continues to put himself in sticky situations, this time involving some awkward racism with his new girlfriend's family during a social occasion among many other things. Will their antics extend beyond their previous capers involving angry bears and mean bikers? Or will the eighties bring with it a more streetwise news bunch? We doubt the latter.
The sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy' is set to hit our screens soon entitled 'Anchorman: The Legend Continues'. We'll likely be seeing yet more hijinks from one of Hollywood's favourite comedy casts as they return following at massive $85 million gross from the original movie. Produced again by Judd Apatow ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Knocked Up', 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'), Adam McKay ('Step Brothers', 'The Other Guys', 'Talladega Nights') also makes a return as director and co-writer alongside Will Ferrell. It is scheduled for release in the UK on December 20th 2013.
The Farrelly Brothers' sequel to the 90's comedy has been cut from Warner Bros' budget; so what does the future hold for the Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels reunion?
Warner Brothers Pictures announced this week that they have decided to drop the planned sequel to the Farrelly brothers' 1994 comedy Dumb & Dumber, putting the project in limbo for the umpteenth time since the film-making siblings started work on the project.
Having come back from the brink so many times before though, the project might still be made, although being dropped by the film company may just prove to be the final nail needed to shut the coffin on this doomed sequel for good. New Line - who are owned by Warners and released the original film - had predicted a $30 million budget was needed to film the sequel, an amount that was apparently deemed too much and spelled the latest stumbling block for the project. Although the original financier had deemed the project too risky, this might not spell the end of Dumb & Dumber 2 just yet though, as now the Farrelly's are free to shop around and see who else might be interested, if anyone in Hollywood is interested in the project that is.
However bleak it may seem, there remains hope that filming for the sequel will happen nonetheless, with original stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniel having already pledged their interest in the project and the Farrelly's script all but finished. There is still a big if hanging over the project, but it isn't completely doomed, and as long as the script is better than the God-awful prequel then we may very well have a Dumb & Dumber 2 at some point.

Ron Burgundy, Brian Fantana, Brick Tamland and Champ Kind return in this hilarious sequel to 2004's 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy' which saw Ron land himself a hot girlfriend, get attacked by a bear and have his dog thrown over a bridge by an angry biker. The legendary San Diego news anchors are doubtlessly set to entertain us with more news casting exploits which, according to the latest teaser trailer, will involve 'submachine guns and boobies' and getting 'stinky'. One thing's for sure, it's going to be funnier, weirder and much ruder.

Fox news offer up childish attack on Jim Carrey
In a coldly calculated ‘chat’ on The Five, Fox’s hosts sat around and mocked Jim Carrey’s spoof anti-gun video and subsequent press release, pretending they found it funny, and feigning indifference in a poorly executed ego retention mission.
Befitting the demeanour of five-year-olds, sitting around a table and engaging in a game of one-upmanship, The Five team (their names irrelevant) set out to impress each other and their viewers, but exhibiting a brand of fake triviality all the while. “Jimmy mocked Mr. Heston but won’t respond to me -- yet,” said host Greg Gutfeld with his patented smarm. “I guess Jimmy thought he couldn’t lose to a debate to a dead man. That’s what’s really funny. He did. And now Charlton Heston has a brighter future in films than Jim Carrey.” Gutfield continued to pick through Carrey’s press release, calling it “basically a complete meltdown,” adding: “This is a guy that insulted most of America and danced on the grave of Charlton Heston. Jim Carrey is, in this letter, threatening legal action -- something Charlton Heston can’t do because Charlton Heston is dead. That was the whole point, to stand up for somebody who couldn’t talk back to a fool like Jim Carrey."

After Jim Carrey posted a parody of Charlton Heston, aimed at gun culture in America, the team of Fox News began a crusade against the actor.
The battle between Fox News and Jim Carrey continues. Well, it continues on one side anyway. After the actor made and posted a humorous video ridiculing the opponents of stricter gun control policies in the US, he received enormous backlash from many Fox hosts, newscasters and commentators. The video, entitled “Cold Dead Hand”, which was posted on Funny or Die, aims to ridicule so-called “hick” culture in America and references western actor Charlton Heston.
One of its most vocal critics was Greg Guthried, who tried to get Carrey to respond over Twitter, and then critiqued his video on Fox’s The Five on Friday. “I guess Jimmy thought he couldn’t lose to a debate to a dead man. That’s what’s really funny. He did. And now Charlton Heston has a brighter future in films than Jim Carrey.” The host first called the comedian to go on Fox News and defend the video and referred to him as a “pathetic tool” On Friday, Bob Beckel, another host on The Five, read portions of Carey’s statement to prove that Guthried really had gotten to the actor. “He issued a press release, which is basically a complete meltdown,” Gutfeld said. “This is a guy that insulted most of America and danced on the grave of Charlton Heston. Jim Carrey is, in this letter, threatening legal action -- something Charlton Heston can’t do because Charlton Heston is dead. That was the whole point, to stand up for somebody who couldn’t talk back to a fool like Jim Carrey.”
We’ll keep you updated on where the chain of overreactions goes next.
New trailer focuses on Chloe Moretz' character
Kick-Ass 2 Posters
The international trailer for Kick-Ass 2 shows a barely recognizable Jim Carrey and focuses on the character Mindy - played by Chloe Moretz, it's the international trailer of Kick-Ass 2 and it gets the anticipation going ahead of the film's eventual released on August 16, 2013. Wow that seems a long way away.

After their previous caped capering defeating mob boss Frank D'Amico, things seem back to normal for Dave Lizewski and Mindy who have abandoned their respective Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl monikers in favour of a regular high-school life. Mindy struggles to fit in, however, and when Dave tells her of the new generation of crime-fighting, masked civilians, the offer to get back on the streets of New York seems too good to turn down. This new league of superheroes is led by the formidable Colonel Stars and Stripes who encourages his co-crusaders, above all else, to have fun. Though when news of Red Mist, the son of the now deceased D'Amico who now dubs himself The Motherf*****, rallying together an army of supervillains to take on Kick-Ass and his cohorts, things seem less than enjoyable for the teenage heroes.

Kick Ass 2 looks to focus on Chloe Grace Moretz's Hit Girl character.
The new international trailer for Kick-Ass 2 has arrived, focusing on Chloe Grace Moretz's Hit-Girl character generally causing chaos and kicking some serious behind. Readers of the original comic-book will know that the sequel to Mark Millar's original caper is very much centered on Moretz's character, so expect plenty of the ultra-violent 15-year-old.
The new trailer also gives us a little more footage of Jim Carrey's Colonel Stars and Stripes, though nothing of Donald Faison's Doctor Gravity just yet. Carrey stole the original trailer with his "Yeah, there's a dog on your balls," line, though it's Hit-Girl who leads the cast in the new promo. It opens with her father having a serious discussion with her about her conduct, pleading with her to begin high-school as a regular, normal student.

Jim Carrey has Tweeted his response to the critics of his gun control parody video, in what will probably be the start of a long, drawn out affair.
Jim Carrey ruffled more than a few feathers when he ventured into the always touchy subject of gun control with his Funny or Die music video for the comedy single 'Cold Dead Hand.' Needless to say, almost as soon as the video went viral, a torrent of abuse spewed forth Carrey's way from pro-gun enthusiasts. But Carrey is not the kind of guy to take things lying down and he has already responded to his critics via the medium of Twitter to further back his claims for tighter gun restrictions.
The video in question features Carrey as famed NRA lobbyist Charlton Heston and a host of other humouros characters and the band Eels as special-guests on a country and western TV show, with the band dressed as John Lennon, Gandhi and Abraham Lincoln, making various quips about fire arm enthusiasts, including the old one about gun nuts over compensating for something a little small. As is Newton's Law, for every action there is, of course, a reaction, and the Right responded to the video in their numbers, with a petition to have Carrey deported back to his native Canada being set up soon after the video made the rounds, as well as more than a few nasty words being sent his direction.

Jim Carrey ruffles feathers with new anti-gun spoof
Jim Carrey is the latest celebrity to speak out on U.S gun law. We’re not talking a solemn message to the camera in black and white, we’re not even talking a carefully worded statement. No, Carrey has made a country and western song, with accompanying video.
Jim's song is entitled Cold Dead Hand, referring to aspeech made by Charlton Heston at an NRA in 2000, in which he states he would never give up his rifles and he would only relinquish his gun if it was removed 'from my cold dead hands'. The lyrics include: "(The angels) wouldn't take him up to heaven like he planned because they couldn't pry that gun from his cold dead hand. "You're a big big man with a little bitty gland, so you need something bigger with a hairpin trigger.” The funny man later tweeted to explain what the video was about, in case any one didn’t quite appreciate the thrust. “Cold Dead Hand' is abt u heartless m************ unwilling 2 bend 4 the safety of our kids. Sorry if you're offended by the word safety! ;^}"

The Croods is witty with sharp characters who are well written, voiced and drawn while Jack the Giant Slayer is smarter and funnier than we expect. We are also rather excited by a first look at Kick Ass 2 as well as a chilling new trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness.
This week's big global release is the DreamWorks animated prehistoric comedy-adventure The Croods, led by an all-star vocal cast including Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds. Look for a huge push for must-have spin-off merchandise for this one, as it's packed with cuddly creatures. And hope it does well at the box office, because it would make a great franchise too.
Doing the publicity rounds this week, Gerard Butler has been out promoting his new White House thriller Olympus Has Fallen. Flitting between New York and Los Angeles to appear on every chat show possible, it's no wonder that he was somewhat fed-up by the time he reached David Letterman's Manhattan studio. Of course, the paparazzi caught it on camera as he lost his patience with a fan trying to get multiple autographs. But he manages to recovers his usual charm.
Chloe Grace Moretz and Aaron Johnson are set to fight more evil as the city's masked heroes in the new 'Kick-Ass 2' trailer.
Kick-Ass meets The Mother F****r
The trailer for 'Kick Ass 2' is finally here showcasing yet more hilarious superhero capers from Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr.'s lovable comic duo Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl.
The first taste of the multiple award winning superhero comedy movie sequel has arrived with the exciting red band trailer. It opens with Chloe Grace Moretz displaying her usual feisty Hit-Girl attitude as she and Aaron Johnson's Kick-Ass show that they've done some serious training since the original movie in 2010. We also see the return of Christopher Mintz-Plasse, whose formidable Red Mist character has morphed into the supervillain The Motherf***** with revenge on his mind as goes about building a destructive army to avenge his father against Kick-Ass' new superhero team headed by the militant Colonel Stars and Stripes, unrecognisably played by Jim Carrey, and his masked pooch (no joke!).
While not the laugh riot it could have been, this comedy consistently amuses us with its pastiche characters and silly gags. It threatens to get bogged down in sentiment at a few points along the way, but manages to veer back into something witty just in time. And while none of the characters are quite as classic as Anchorman's Ron Burgundy, it's an entertaining addition to the affectionate-spoof genre, which includes Blades of Glory and Talladega Nights.
The events take place in the sequin-filled world of Las Vegas magicians, where childhood pals Burt and Anton (Carell and Buscemi) have packed out their theatre for 10 years. But their new assistant Jane (Wilde) is surprised to see that it's now performance by numbers for them, and they can barely stand the sight of each other. Meanwhile, the egomaniac Burt won't consider freshening the act even when faced with competition from attention-seeking street magician Steve (Carrey), who's stealing their audience. But the hotel owner (Gandolfini) urges them to try a big stunt themselves. Or maybe they should return to their roots with their old-school mentor Rance (Arkin).
Carell creates a remarkably believable idiot in Burt Wonderstone, an arrogant womaniser who clearly needs to be brought down a peg or two. What's impressive is how likeable he is, even opposite Buscemi's more sympathetic (but less interesting) Anton. Arkin delivers his usual dryly hilarious supporting turn, while Wilde and Gandolfini do little more than play gently with their usual images. By contrast, Carrey's performance is much more broadly comical. He's funny but far too clownish to ever be taken as a serious threat.

Ten of the best close-up magic tricks ever captured on film.
Magic tricks are a touchy subject among most grown adults nowadays, with it being literally one of those things where you either love it or you absolutely despise it. But there have been a few street magicians who've really transferred it into youth culture; the likes of West Yorkshire's Steven Frayne, more commonly known as Dynamo, being one obvious example as well as A&E Network star Criss Angel who's known for his cool, rocker style and his superhuman mind-reading skills.
We also thought, what with the release of Steve Carell's new comedy 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone', also starring Steve Buscemi and Jim Carrey, it might be a good idea to put together our favourite close-up magic tricks to whet your appetite for its UK cinematic release, ranging from the old classics to the hip street stuff that has quickly risen in popularity. Of course, these ten magic mavens put Wonderstone to shame with some of the sleekest sleight-of-hand tricks on record.

Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi and Jim Carrey are among arrivals at the LA premiere for 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone'.
The LA premiere for 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' took place on Monday (March 11th 2013) and as well as the starring cast, saw many other famous faces.
As well as leading stars Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi, who play the title character and his partner Anton Marvelton respectively, we see their magic rival Steve Gray played by Jim Carrey as well as their beautiful assistant Jane played by Olivia Wilde on the red carpet. Primetime Emmy winning director of the movie Don Scardino, who has previously worked on American comedy series '30 Rock', made his appearance at the premiere held at the TCL Chinese Theatre alongside screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein who have worked together on a variety of projects including 'Horrible Bosses', an episode of 'Bones' and a short film called 'Audio Tour'. Legendary illusionist David Copperfield was also spotted on the red carpet; he makes a cameo appearance on the movie and was also a key figure in developing some of the visual trickery performed by the onscreen magicians. Young versions of main characters Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton were also snapped, played by Mason Cook and Luke Vanek respectively, as well as their character's biggest hero Rance Holloway played by Alan Arkin.
Jim Carrey talks about his role in the new film The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. He plays illustrious magician Steve Gray. Known for his endurance style tricks and flowing locks, Gray is a name Burt Wonderstone grows to loath. Here Jim Carrey talks about how he got into character for the role, how it was teaming up with Bruce Almighty co-star Steve Carrel and how he found it shooting on location in Las Vegas.
Burt Wonderstone wanted to be a superstar magician ever since he was a young boy watching his idol Rance Holloway perform tricks on TV. Enlisting his best friend Anton Marvelton as his partner, the pair became stars beyond their wildest dreams wowing audiences in Las Vegas for the best part of 30 years. However, after a while being the biggest magic stars in America, ticket sales begin to drop and the pair find themselves drifting apart from each other. It doesn't help that a young, charismatic new street magician called Steve Gray has arrived on the scene becoming a massive hit among young magic fans. After Burt and Anton embark on a new stunt, attempting to stay suspended in a box with each other, they realise that their friendship is long forgotten and Anton moves abroad. Burt must meet with his hero Rance and reconnect with what made him love magic in the first place in order to reunite with his friend once more.
'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' is a hilarious new comedy directed by Don Scardino ('30 Rock') and written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein ('Horrible Bosses'), and Chad Kultgen ('Southern Discomfort', 'Waiting to Die'). It is set for release in UK cinemas from March 15th 2013.
