LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part Is Finally Here
While you wonder the fate of Chris Pratt as Star-Lord in the MCU, you can enjoy what’s basically a LEGO inspired version of Star-Lord voiced by Chris Pratt in The LEGO Movie sequel.
In fact, to further the parallels between Peter Quill and Emmet Brickowski, there is a rescue mission deep in outer space resting on the shoulders Emmet (despite the odds again being stacked against him).
See for yourself in the trailer here. LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is set for theatrical release in February 2019.
Just like you, we’ll be curious to see if the gang behind the LEGO Movie franchise can live up to the magic, surprise, and wonder of the first film. If they do, don’t be surprised to see even more LEGO sequels and one-offs ordered at Warner Bros.
“Billy on the Street” Finds The Handful of People in NYC Who Don’t Know Who Chris Pratt Is
All they had to do was recognize Chris Pratt standing right in front of them and they’d win a dollar.
Unbelievably, Billy Eichner found plenty of New Yorkers who couldn’t meet the challenge in another round of Billy on the Street.
Season 4 of “Billy on the Street” Will Have Billy Eichner Running with Bill Hader, Anna Kendrick, Julianne Moore, and More
As it’s season 4, you have to wonder if people will start answering Billy’s questions, subjective as they are, right more often.
Bill Hader, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jason Sudeikis, Will Ferrell, Anna Kendrick, Julianne Moore, and Chris Pratt will all be guest stars, and likely pulled along whatever street Eichner happens to be patrolling, on this latest season of Billy on the Street premiering on Oct. 8th at 10:30PM on truTV.
We hope Will Ferrell and Billy get into some sort of shouting match over whatever game or obstacle course they’re doing.
Apparently, Most of The CAA Comedy Department Has Become a Big Part of UTA’s Comedy Department
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
Maybe BoJack Horseman will do an episode about this like they did the William Morris Endeavor merger?
Two big comedy agents, Jason Heyman and Martin Lesak, were at United Talent Agency or UTA, then uprooted with their clients and left to Creative Artists Agency or CAA making a huge shift in which agency had more leverage when it came to comedy.
Heyman and Lesak, after being reportedly dissatisfied at CAA for a long time, have headed back to UTA and are apparently taking what seems like the entirety of CAA’s comedy department including Nick Nuciforo, Susie Fox, Joanna Scott, Mackenzie Condon and Chelsea McKinnies and their high profile talent, Will Ferrell, Chris Pratt, Melissa McCarthy, Seth Meyers, and way more.
From the point of view of consumers of comedy, the effect might be negligible and comedy movies, television, web series, etc. proceed as planned. Now that legal action is being taken (via Deadline) by CAA against UTA and all the agents that moved over, perhaps certain projects will be slowed.
While suits are being filed and arbitrations are being made, hopefully everything else will seem business as usual.
The Cast of “Parks and Recreation” Say Goodbye The Only Way They Know How on Late Night
Right after the finale of Parks and Recreation aired last night, the entire cast as well as co-creator Mike Schur (and a special guest that came to “Jamm” things up) appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers to relive all the memories.
Of course, the goodbye, perhaps the last time all of them will be in a room together went as memorable and as in the spirit-of-Parks-and-Rec as it could be.
The Latest Season of Saturday Night Live Starting Off with Chris Pratt and Sarah Silverman as Hosts
As you hear unofficial announcements of who will be working on Saturday Night Live this year, SNL has announced who will be hosting the beginning of their latest season.
Sept. 27th and Oct. 4th will see the return of Saturday Night Liveand they’re starting off with a bang by having Chris Pratt and Sarah Silverman host, respectively.
We think that might just make for two great episodes.
Yeah, The Lego Movie Is That Good
Not only have entertainment industry trade papers invoked the rare term of boffo for The Lego Movie’s $69 million debut weekend, but it’s pretty fantastic. Writers Phil Lord and Chris Miller make one hell of an imaginative, fun romp through something that we couldn’t possibly think could have a story. Also, a stellar cast of Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Banks, Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, Will Ferrell, Will Arnett, and more make for a thoroughly good time.
Not even a theater half full of kids wondering what all the adults are laughing at ruined the experience of The Lego Movie.
