Nicholson played the role in Tim Burton’s ‘Batman’ in 1989.
The Joker, Batman’s notorious foe, is one of the most iconic villains in cinema history, but they’ll always be debate over whose portrayal is the best. Some prefer Heath Ledger’s twisted take from the Dark Knight, while others opt for Jack Nicholson's more cartoonish version.
But for Zach Galifianakis, who voiced the villain in The Lego Batman Movie, no one can beat Nicholson’s portrayal in 1989’s Batman, directed by Tim Burton. For the actor, it was Nicholson’s non sequiturs that made his performance the best Galifianakis has ever seen.
Zach Galifianakis thinks Jack Nicholson’s Joker from 1989’s Batman was the best

Batman is far from enthused and literally knows nothing about the kid who's living in Wayne Manor but when Dick accidentally stumbles upon the Batcave and all of Batman's elaborate toys, he can't believe his luck! First job is to find a suitable costume and young Dick takes no time re-working a Reggae style outfit.
Now Batman has found a side-kick, how will the two get on and find a way to save the city from The Joker who's planning on taking over control of Gotham.
Continue: The Lego Batman Movie Trailer
As ever, Batman is busy protecting his beloved Gotham city and The Joker is up to his usual tricks causing chaos for our hero.
As The Joker's rule over the city strengthens, Batman realises that he must loosen up slightly and be open to teaming up with some equally skilled heroes. Following on from the first Lego movie, this film centres on Batman's character. The Lego Batman Movie will see many of the characters from the first movie make reappearances.
The cast and crew of 'Birdman' discuss the visionary filming techniques behind the movie in a short featurette. Among them are director, writer and producer Alejandro González Iñárritu, producers John Lesher and James W. Skotchdopole, and stars Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Zach Galifianakis, Andrea Riseborough and Amy Ryan.
Inarritu explains his initial idea of having the audience see the movie through the eyes of main character Riggan Thomas himself, which resulted in a one-take experience that struck fear in the hearts of the cast who, as Emma reveals, constantly had to be switched on in their roles. We also get a glimpse into the semi-hallucination effects that affect Riggan throughout the movie.
'BiRDMAN (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)' is released in UK cinemas on 1st January 2015.
Riggan Thomas (Michael Keeton) is faced with a serious problem. In an attempt to make himself appear relevant in the new world following his role as television superhero Birdman twenty years ago, he has written a stage adaptation of sixty-year-old book. But his problem is, that the actor hired to star in the production has dropped out. The plays producer, Jake (Zach Galifianakis) is in the process of explaining how much trouble they are in, when Lesley (Naomi Watts) explains that her lover, the famous Mike Shiner (Edward Norton) is ready and willing to step into the role.

Cynical marketing ploys aside, Obama's funny in this video
Barack Obama showed off his acting chops when he was interviewed by Zack Galifianakis on ‘Between Two Ferns’. The President of The United States traded insults with The Hangover star as the pair discussed healthcare reform, bad third movies, the problems with North Ikea and basketball.
Zach Galifianakis and Obama really went at it
It was Mr Obama that kicked off the insults, saying, "When I heard that people actually watch this show, I was actually pretty surprised." To which Zack (I’m not spelling his name out every time) replied: "What is it like to be the last black president?" "What's it like for this to be the last time you ever talk to a president?" Mr Obama replied."It must kind of stink, though, that you can't run three times?" continued Zak.

Star called in to say he wouldn't be appearing at Hangover III press conference, because it was up a hill
Zach Galifianakis might act like the wild guy in The Hangover III, but even he has his limits – and they appear to be heights! The actor was scheduled to be at an event in Brazil recently, though it involved him getting in a cable car and going up 220 meters to the top of a hill where a press conference was taking place with him and co-stars Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms. Galifianakis instead decided that he'd rather not do it.
The reason? Apparently the comedy actor is so afraid of heights that he pretty much refused to go all the way up there, and so was subsequently a no show for the interview. “Zach is afraid of heights, and called into the press conference to let participants know, and made a few jokes” a rep for him confirmed to Gossip Cop.
Talking of no shows, The Hangover III might as well have no showed at the US Box Office. Ok, that’s probably a slight exaggeration, but given that the first Hangover film collected a mighty $135 million on its debut weekend in the cinemas, the bosses behind the franchise have got to be disappointed that it returned a comparatively meagre $55 million. It suggests that the writing’s on the wall for the series and you’d hope that there won’t be anymore, with the film also getting somewhat of a critical panning.
The Cannes Festival winds down this weekend with Steven Soderbergh, Alexander Payne and the Coen Brothers all pleasing the critics.
The big global release this week is The Hangover Part III, and the cast has been jetting around the world for premieres in Los Angeles and London, where fans screamed at actors Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Ken Jeong as they paraded up the red carpet. The critical response hasn't been quite as positive.
The 66th Cannes Film Festival winds down this weekend in France. Critics are praising new films by Steven Soderbergh (Behind the Candelabra starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon), Alexander Payne (Nebraska with Bruce Dern) and the Coen Brothers (Inside Llewyn Davis with break-out actor Oscar Isaac). They weren't so thrilled by Ryan Gosling's reunion with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn for Only God Forgives, although they praised costar Kristin Scott Thomas for going far against type.
It's time to say goodbye to the Wolfpack, but should you bother sending them your farewells?
The Hangover III is the end of an era for the Wolfpack; the band of misfits that have drank (and more) their way through Las Vegas, Bangkok and back again for three of the most successful comedy films of all time. For a franchise this successful, a trilogy was alway going to be imminent, but has the over-longing of the franchise ruined the integrity of the original, and should you bother going to see the third film in the first place?
This was kind of the problem with the last film really, with many commenting on how the Thailand-based sequel was too similar to the first, and whilst the premise of the movie has changed somewhat (this time round the boys get caught up on their way to sending Alan to rehab, rather than going wild on a stag-do) there has still been a heap of criticism put on the Todd Phillips film for it's lack of originality. Then again, don't they say; if it ain't broke then don't try and fix it? Judging by the expected box office takings for the movie over the weekend, the formula definitely isn't broken.
Watch the trailer for The Hangover III
In the Hangover III, as is often the case in the movies, Doug (Justin Bartha) falls victim to the latest mishap that renders him almost unseen for the majority of the flick, this time being kidnapped by gangster John Goodman, because the recurrent Leslie Chow (Ken Jeong) stole his gold. It's up to Phil (Bradley Cooper), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Stu (Ed Helms) to bring back the Wolfpack and return to Vegas one last time to find Chow and the gold before its too late.
Ed Helms, Bradley Cooper and Zach Galifianakis are interviewed about the last instalment of 'The Hangover' comedy series. They talk about their feelings on leaving the movie, first impressions of each other and laughing on set.
Graham reckons she's boring compared to her Hangover role
It’s been a long and winding road for The Hangover. Long because it’s been going on for ages, and winding, because one of them was good, and two of them are rubbish. For that, we probably won’t miss it too much, but Heather Graham will.
"I'm pretty boring in my real life. I don't really drink, I'm not that wild, so it's fun to play these wild characters on screen," explains Graham, bemoaning the fact that she can no longer play Jade, a stripper. "I get to be the only woman in the scene and it's fun." We can understand that, but considering Graham gets her kit off in nearly every film she’s in, we’re guessing she’ll be able to get some of that excitement in her next project, whatever it is. Someone else who might miss a decade of hangovers is Todd Phillips. "They roll out the red carpet for me in Vegas, sure. It's like that scene in Goodfellas where he walks into the Copa," he explained. Who wouldn’t miss that!?

It's not looking pretty for this hangover.
It seems the Hangover franchise is still hung-over from its initial outing; it simply hasn’t been able to recreate the magic of the first film. The reviews are in for the Wolfpack’s third outing, and it’s not looking pretty.
There will have been one goal for this film, okay maybe two: be better than the second film, which was awful, and make loads of money. According to the reviews, you can kiss that first objective goodbye. Having said that, the second film was really awful. “Bad scripting, bad plotting, terrible joke formulation, and not a single character actually having a hangover until part-way through the end credits. What kind of a Hangover movie is this?” ponder The Telegraph in their review. “Tonally a complete departure from the rest of the series, which is at once laudably brave and disappointingly unfunny,” write film magazine, Empire, while Stefan Pape of HeyUGuys writes: “So as we bid farewell to Phil, Stu and Alan once and for all, it's just not quite the riotous comedy you had hoped it would be."

The film-star makes time for his good old friend
Zach Galifianakis’ homeless woman – his date for the premiere of The Hangover III – was Mimi Haist. This wasn’t a spur of the moment thing, though; the movie-star met Haist at a laundromat in 1994.
For 20 years now, the pair have been friends. Galifianakis learnt that she was homeless, and subsequently went about paying the rent on her one-bedroom apartment. He’s also taken her to many glitzy events in that time. “I’m looking forward to it, I like the excitement of it,” Haist told the New York Daily News.

This is the third and final Hangover film, so it's time to say goodbye
It started as a joke; a low-budget, quirky movie about three guys who have the night of their lives, and then have the time of their lives sorting out the mess they’ve made. Now, it’s a multi-million dollar franchise, and this weekend, it enters its third and final movie, The Hangover Part III.
“We just stumbled on that one thing and thought it would be an interesting thing to explore as far as what that meant and what it's about. So we didn't do it like that, but I do know the movies pretty well,” says Director Todd Phillips on how the Hangover idea was born.
Is it a Spring Break anthem or an equal rights advocacy video?
James Franco, Zach Galifianakis and Edward Norton teamed up with online comedians The Lonely Island for their latest video, Spring Break Anthem. The Lonely Island trio are currently in the midst of promoting their upcoming release, The Wack Album and have promised audiences a video every Wednesday until the official release date. Spring Break Anthem made for a great kickoff to the festivities and a seasonally appropriate as well, what with students the world over currently hitting the beach. This is exactly the theme of the video as well – booze, babes and… same sex weddings.
Yep. The Lonely Island’s particular brand of crude humor got everyone once again, with lyrics that go “Bros before h**s and chicks with no clothes on/ Slammin’ shots and marry a man.” You have to admire TLI’s commitment to being offensive to every demographic, without actually offending anyone, though. Plus, the video is colorful and fast enough to make you forget the lack of any actual point - as with most of the comedians' content. Plus, James Franco is exactly on cue for this, having recently starred in the neon-toned Harmony Korine romp Spring Breakers. So you should probably watch the video below. It’s funny, it’s… almost kind of witty, but most of all, we’re (along with the entire internet) are just glad The Lonely Island guys are back.
R.I.P.D stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as deceased cops hunting out 'Deados'.
The trailer for R.I.P.D is finally here and it looks a riot. In case you haven't been following the production of this movie, it stars Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges as deceased cops who work for the Rest in Peace Department, hunting down some scary looking ghoulish souls called 'Deados' who've escaped judgement.
But, there's a twist. Ryan's character Nick Walker is looking for the man who murdered him in a botched police operation. The trailer opens with Nick working for the real life police - he enters a warehouse looking for a criminal, though is quickly gunned down and sent to the R.I.P.D and told of his new role. There he meets Wild West lawman Roy Pulsipher (Bridges), his new partner who appears to channel his Oscar nominated role as Rooster Cogburn in True Grit. The souls begin to get out of control and gunfights and chaos ensue, with the partners trying to defend the world "one soul at a time."
Stu, Phil, Alan and Doug return to Las Vegas in the hilarious third instalment of 'The Hangover' movie series. Nobody's getting married this time, but if you think the absence of a bachelor party will calm this lot down, you are so wrong. Following the events of 'The Hangover' which saw them get attacked by gangsters, mauled by a tiger, tasered by cops and inadvertently married, and of course the events of 'The Hangover Part II' which took them to Thailand where they got tattooed, shot by Russian mobsters and had sex with transgender hookers, the conclusion to this trilogy doesn't look to fare much better as these wild boys set out for one last mayhem-fuelled weekend in Sin City.
Continue: The Hangover Part III - Teaser Trailer
The Hangover III trailer has finally arrived with plenty of action and intrigue. It should prove to be a great conclusion to a successful franchise.
The Hangover franchise has been enormously successful fiscally and critically. It's crude and fairly disgusting at times with a few nice twists to keep audiences entertained, plus it's launched the career of Bradley Cooper to the upper echelons of actorly stardom in his Oscar nominated movie Silver Lingings Playbook. The trailer for the third and final movie in the series has just been released. Despite the fear that the gang's returning to Las Vegas would feel like a rehash of the original, by the looks of the trailer like we're in for a brand new ride.
The first surprise is Alan's uncharacteristically beautiful voice (yes, just like Tom Hooper's epic Les Mis, Zach Galifinakis sang that live too. We hope.) singing Ave Maria at someone's funeral. The second surprise is that this story returns to Las Vegas. The Hangover II's Bangkok setting could have been the beginning of an enormous franchise that toured the world's best cities and the potentially insane adventures in each one. But the writers and producers have played smart by taking it back to the scene of the crime.

Will Ferrell's funniest movie in years, this is a silly comedy with a terrible sentimental streak, but the political satire running through it is dead on. In fact, the film's opening act is razor-sharp as it lampoons election campaigning with knowing jabs at corporate sponsorship, incumbent laziness and the difficulty of being an honest candidate. So it's disappointing when the film becomes soppy and stupid.
Ferrell creates a memorable comical character in Cam Brady, a five-term North Carolina congressman up for re-election. He's sure he will coast his way back into office, and is only mildly worried when naive local goofball Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) runs against him. Marty certainly isn't ready for the slick attacks orchestrated by Cam's campaign manager (Sudeikis). But two wealthy brothers (the underused Lithgow and Aykroyd) are bankrolling Marty's campaign in the hopes of turning the district into a Chinese sweatshop, so they hire a ruthless press officer (McDermott) to whip Marty into shape. And the game is on.
Even though the characters are cartoonish, what they do is eerily authentic. Cam is a smooth operator with strong hair and a womanising streak. He also believes he can do whatever he wants as long as he mentions "America, Jesus and freedom" in every speech. By contrast, Marty is camp and silly, with a plump wife (Baker) and kids, plus a pair of pet pugs that Cam instantly labels as "Communist Chinese dogs!" Their clashes are a riot of parody and slapstick, some of which is sharply pointed (neither says anything substantial) and some is just ridiculous (including a hilarious cameo from Uggy, the dog from The Artist).

Prior to the unopposed congressman Cam Brady's fifth term election, two affluent CEOs decide enough is enough after Brady commits a major public faux pas. They bring in a second candidate to rival Brady and allow them to gain control over North Carolina. Their candidate, Marty Huggins, though less charismatic than Brady but equally as much of an intellectual vacuum, is the na<ve local Tourism Center director who, with the help of his new supporters and a ruthless campaign manager, quickly becomes a genuine competitor incurring many more of Brady's public indiscretions.
