Watch Jimmy Fallon’s Lip Sync Battle with Paul Rudd

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014


The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon is in its second week; I’ve been watching and enjoying it.  When it was Late Night with Jimmy Fallon there was an epic Lip Sync Battle between Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Stephen Merchant, and Fallon that hit the Internets hard.  Now this time around, Fallon decided to battle it out against Paul Rudd and it was everything you’d expect and more.

I’ve put both performances down below for you to watch and judge, who came out on top?  I’d say Merchant and Rudd, what say you?


Clip and Poster for David Wain’s Rom-Com Spoof THEY CAME TOGETHER Starring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014


David Wain’s latest, They Came Together should have a full trailer soon, but for now enjoy a funny clip and even a funny poster.  The rom-com spoof stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler, and if you’re familiar with Wain’s work (The State, Wet Hot American Summer, The Ten, Stella) you will notice he’s back to his old tricks of pointing out the absurd in hilarious fashion.

This time around it’s the romance genre and favorites of everyone (as it should be) Poehler and Rudd tackle chemistry like only they can.  It didn’t work with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, as Admission was on my worst of 2013 selection, so let’s hope this one pulls off the laughs instead.

Here’s Wain’s on the film:

After having already made world-changing cinematic statements on adolescence (Wet Hot American Summer), religion (The Ten), service (Role Models), and community (Wanderlust), I teamed up with Michael Showalter to take on a topic that (to our knowledge) has yet been seen in the movies: ROMANCE — particularly heterosexual romance between two white people.

Our next idea was to mix this romance story with humor – so you could almost call this a Romantic-Comedy, so to speak.

We first worked with Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd on Wet Hot American Summer. They played summer camp counselors in that movie, so it was obviously hard for us to imagine them playing a shopkeeper and a corporate executive, respectively. But thanks to a team of acting coaches and an award™ winning VFX team, we pulled off the illusion.

Watch the clip and check out the funny poster that  below that takes aim at


Marvel Confirms Paul Rudd Is Edgar Wright’s ANT-MAN

Friday, December 20th, 2013


I’d be lying if I said I knew what Ant-Man was and had interest in finding out, but here we are.  It’s official that Paul Rudd is Ant-Man; he’s been in talks for a little while and it seems he was the first choice too, good for him.

Marvel has been developing Ant-Man with Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) since it was first announced at Comic-Con alongside the first Iron Man film.  This is pretty big news for Rudd who is now destined to make multiple Marvel cameos and join in on the loud fun in The Avengers 3.  Good thing he doesn’t age, at the rate this movie is getting made the guy is going to be ordering the early bird special between takes.

Here is the new trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, or rather as I said out loud during the trailer “oh hey it’s Baxter!”.  Truth be told: I laughed once in the trailer, and that was at the racism.  I don’t think Veronica Corningstone is around this time around (she is seen once in the trailer I counted) as Ron is dating a new lovely lady.  Brick is as slow as ever, and that’s a good thing.  These could all be good things, it’s hard to tell if they will recapture the funny in the sequel.  What do you think reader?

The film stars Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Dylan Baker, Meagan Good, Greg Kinnear, and Harrison Ford.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues opens on December 20th.

With the 70′s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), returns to the news desk in “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.” Also back for more are Ron’s co-anchor and wife, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), weather man Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), man on the street Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) and sports guy Champ Kind (David Koechner) – All of whom won’t make it easy to stay classy…while taking New York’s first 24-hour news channel by storm.


Trailer for PRINCE AVALANCHE Starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch

Friday, April 26th, 2013

prince-avalanche-posterHere is a teaser trailer for director David Gordon Green’s (Pineapple Express) upcoming dramedy Prince Avalanche. I’ve been looking forward to this film since early reviews praised stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, two favorites of mine.  The film follows the pair as they spend their summer repainting traffic lines in the middle of a country highway.

There are only four characters that appear onscreen in the entire movie, Prince Avalanche will be available in theaters and on VOD August 9th.

An odd couple of sorts, meditative and stern Alvin and his girlfriend’s brother, Lance, dopey and insecure, leave the city behind to spend the summer in solitude repainting traffic lines down the center of a country highway ravaged by wildfire. As they sink into their job in the remarkable landscape, they learn more than they want to about each other and their own limitations. An unlikely friendship develops through humor and nasty exchanges, leading to surprising affection.

Monday, November 19th, 2012


Below you can watch a new featurette for Judd Apatow’s upcoming comedy This Is 40, a “sort-of” sequel to Knocked Up.  The movie as we know now picks up five years after the events of Knocked Up and will center on the relationship between Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann).

In the featurette, Apatow talks about why he decided to the characters back, also Mann and Rudd talk about the real-life problems facing their characters.  I’ve heard a lot of positive things about the movie, it’s funny and touching the early screenings are getting from people, I look forward to checking this one out on December 21st.

Friday, November 16th, 2012


The comedy-drama Admission has a first trailer for all to see below, the film directed by Paul Weitz (About a Boy) stars Tina Fey as an admissions officer at Princeton University whose life is caught off-guard when she makes a recruiting visit to an alternative high school overseen by her former college classmate, the free-wheeling John Pressman (Paul Rudd).

Pressman has surmised that Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), his gifted yet very unconventional student, might well be the son that Portia secretly gave up for adoption many years ago. Soon, Portia finds herself bending the rules for Jeremiah, putting at risk the life she thought she always wanted — but in the process finding her way to a surprising and exhilarating life and romance she never dreamed of having.

The film also stars Lily Tomlin, Gloria Reuben, Wallace Shawn, and Michael Sheen. Admission opens on March 8, 2013.
