Watch: Bud Light Super Bowl Commercial Featuring Seth Rogen & Ant-Man’s Paul Rudd and Michael Pena

Check out the Bud Light Super Bowl commercial above featuring Seth Rogen and Amy Schumer as well as Ant-Man’s Paul Rudd and Michael Peña. The spot also references Independence Day.

America. They say we’re a nation divided. They say we disagree on everything. But they’re wrong. We agree on a lot. Like liberty. Justice. Three-day weekends. Funny t-shirts. Jeans. Free parking. Burritos. Sliding on hardwood floors in socks. Cat videos. And beer. Nothing brings America together like Bud Light. That’s why we formed the Bud Light Party. A party for everyone: man or woman, liberal or conservative, Broncos or Panthers fan. We don’t care about labels. Beer should have labels, not people. We’re not stuck in the past. We’re unstuck in the present. We are the fake political party America needs right now. Because no matter where we all stand on the issues, we all sit on bar stools. America has seen the light. And there’s a Bud in front of it.

Watch: Neighbors 2 Trailer

Watch the trailer above for Neighbors 2 as this time a Sorority comes knocking on the door of the Radner’s.

Neighbor’s 2: Sorority Rising has a May 20, 2016 release starring Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Selena Gomez, Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Kiersey Clemons, Beanie Feldstein and Lisa Kudrow.

Synopsis:

Now that Mac (Rogen) and Kelly Radner (Byrne) have a second baby on the way, they are ready to make the final move into adulthood: the suburbs.  But just as they thought they’d reclaimed the neighborhood and were safe to sell, they learn that the new occupants next door are a sorority even more out of control than Teddy (Efron) and his brothers ever dreamed of being.

Tired of their school’s sexist, restrictive system, the unorthodox ladies of Kappa Nu have decided to start a house where they can do whatever the hell they want.  When Shelby (Moretz) and her sisters, Beth (Kiersey Clemons) and Nora (Beanie Feldstein), find the perfect place just off campus, they won’t let the fact that it’s located on a quiet street stand in their way of parties as epic as the guys throw.

Forced to turn to the one ex-neighbor with the skills to bring down the new Greeks next door, the Radners—alongside best friends Jimmy (Ike Barinholtz) and Paula (Carla Gallo)—bring in charismatic Teddy as their secret weapon.  If he can infiltrate the sorority and charm his way through it, the thirtysomethings will shutter the Kappas’ home.  But if they think that their neighbors are going down without a fight, they have severely underestimated the power of youthful ingenuity and straight-up crazy.

Sony Yanks The Interview Amid Terror Threats

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:18400:]]

The hacker group calling themselves “The Guardians Of Peace” recently threatened movie goers who plan on seeing Seth Rogen and James Franco’s The Interview on December 25th.

Yesterday saw a message posted on the anonymous Pastebin website that stated people who see the movie will suffer a “bitter fate” and compared it to 9/11 adding “the world will be full of fear.”

In response, the major movie theaters cancelled screenings, and now Sony has officially yanked the movie and cancelled planned interviews and promotions with the cast.

Sony released the following statement:

In light of the decision by the majority of our exhibitors not to show the film The Interview, we have decided not to move forward with the planned December 25 theatrical release. We respect and understand our partners’ decision and, of course, completely share their paramount interest in the safety of employees and theater-goers.

Sony Pictures has been the victim of an unprecedented criminal assault against our employees, our customers, and our business. Those who attacked us stole our intellectual property, private emails, and sensitive and proprietary material, and sought to destroy our spirit and our morale — all apparently to thwart the release of a movie they did not like. We are deeply saddened at this brazen effort to suppress the distribution of a movie, and in the process do damage to our company, our employees, and the American public. We stand by our filmmakers and their right to free expression and are extremely disappointed by this outcome.

AMC Moving Forward On Preacher TV Series

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:18111:]]

AMC has ordered a pilot for the Preacher TV series, which is based on the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon DC Comics Vertigo comic book of the same name.

The series is being put together by This Is The End writers/directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg for Sony TV and AMC Studios.

Rogen and Goldberg are directing the Preacher pilot; Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) wrote the script and will serve as showrunner.

Peacher follows Reverend Jesse Custer, a tough Texas preacher who has lost his faith, has learned that God has left Heaven and abandoned His responsibilities. He finds himself the only person capable of tracking God down, demanding answers, and making Him answer for His dereliction of duty. Accompanying Jesse on his journey is his former girlfriend and a friendly vampire who seems to prefer a pint in the pub to the blood of the innocent. On his tail is an immortal, unstoppable killing machine named the Saint of Killers – a western lone gunman archetype whose sole purpose is to hunt and kill Jesse. 

“Every once in a while you find a project where all the elements line up beautifully. With Preacher, it starts with a bold, compelling, and thought-provoking comic book series from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon and a whole lot of fans who already know Jesse Custer, Cassidy, and Tulip,” Joel Stillerman, AMC’s EVP of original programming, said in a released statement. “Add to that the passionate and talented Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin, an incredible producing team in Neal Moritz, the Original Film team and our good friends at Sony Pictures Television, and we have everything we need to be VERY excited to move forward on Preacher.”

The Preacher series will start development next Summer for a 2016 release.
