Seth Rogen is getting back into the teen comedy business — sorry, tween comedy business this time — with Good Boys, a somehow R-rated movie about a bunch of 12-year-old lads juggling their own coming of age with a journey to replace a drone toy before their parents find out they broke it.
These days, we take our amusement where we can. For the past week, the internet has been entranced by the disaster that is the Frye Festival, a supposed music festival for rich millennials that quickly descended into anarchy when musicians and vendors pulled out due to its unsafe conditions. The full scope of the festival’s failure was laid bare in Friday’s piece at New York Magazine, where one administrator — or former admin, since she dropped as soon as she realized the full scope of the organizers’ failure — spoke candidly about the missteps leading up to the festival. For entertainment value, the Frye Festival just can’t be beat.
Jon Favreau’s “live-action” (let’s use that term loosely, here) remake of The Lion King is batting 1,000 when it comes to casting, with Donald Glover in the role of Simba and Beyoncé (rumored) for the role of Nala. But today’s additions might be the most perfect yet, as Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen have signed on to voice Timon and Pumbaa, everyone’s favorite unlikely-but-lovable meerkat and warthog buddy duo. Meanwhile, we’ll just be waiting for the other shoe to drop in this casting situation — like, say, if Favreau decides to cast Steve Bannon as Scar. Wait, actually that would be sort of perfect.
As the sneak peek above suggests, we’ll have the first full, official trailer for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising tomorrow, but until then, enjoy 15 seconds of footage from the upcoming sequel to the 2014 comedy hit starring Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne. This time around, the pleasant couple next door are besieged by a house full of sorority sisters led by Chloe Moretz, who appears only briefly in the trailer, but seems to have been perfectly cast as yet another cold and calculating antagonist.
