Zach Galifianakis was on Conan last night to promote The Hangover Part 3. This was his latest pit stop after hosting Saturday Night Live, and it is still only a week out from release. The film will bow next Thursday, a day before Fast & Furious 6 in what will likely be one of the more packed Memorial Day Weekends in recent memory. That said, let’s take a look at the clip from one of the stand-up performer’s most-recent interviews in which he talked about an end-credits photo he tried to excise from the original Hangover.

Zach Galifianakis hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend with musical guest Of Monsters of Men. The show was not quite as great as the comic’s last time out, but it was ‘okay’ compared to other outings this year. The highlights consisted of a Jennifer Aniston lookalike contest which featured cameos from Zach’s Hangover co-stars Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper as well as a Game of Thrones trivia contest. The former did not hit the web, but included here is the generic Fox & Friends cold open we have seen a dozen times before, Cecily Strong’s recurring Weekend Update character, and a Match.com commercial poking fun at Martha Stewart.

Zach Galifianakis is hosting Saturday Night Live this week, so that meant a Fallon appearance Thursday night. The Hangover star is fronting the sketch series for the third time on May 4, and we really cannot wait to see how it goes. Last time out, the comic used his stand-up talents to make a memorable monologue in which he sang Tomorrow dressed as Annie. Continue Reading
Well, it looks like the biggest starts of the weekend are going to be the two leads from Todd Phillips’ Due Date. Robert Downey, Jr. is reprising his role as Iron Man on the feature side while the most-watched television broadcast will likely be Saturday Night Live. Coincidentally, the gig at the helm has gone to Zach Galifianakis who is out promoting The Hangover Part III which will arrive in theaters in just three short weeks. That said, we have no other choice but to look back on one of the most under-appreciated R-comedies of our time, an odd-couple road trip movie that starred the duo as they made their way to California together after being placed on the no-fly list. Continue Reading
There is a new Saturday Night Live this week with host Zach Galifianakis. The actor will be returning in an effort to promote The Hangover Part III. This will be his third time at the helm. Jason Sudeikis joined him for the week’s promos.
Yes, pretty much the title explains it all here. There is some more footage in the latest commercial for The Hangover Part III which is now less than four weeks out from release. It may have to compete against the likes of Fast & Furious 6, but some people I know are willing to see both in the same weekend. This is what government holidays like Memorial Day were meant for, at least according to the Hollywood geniuses who decided to release these films side-by-side. Continue Reading
More footage has been revealed for The Hangover Part III via the film’s second theatrical trailer. The promo just hit the web Thursday afternoon, featuring further plot details and a whole lot more John Goodman. Goodman easily steals the show in every minor supporting role he is in (see Flight if you don’t know what I mean,) so it is nice to see him get some additional screen time in the film’s latest advertisements. Also on display is more of Melissa McCarthy’s cameo. The Wolf Pack greatness lands after the jump. Continue Reading
Yesterday, we got to see a brand new poster for The Hangover Part III, and today brings with it the first teaser trailer for the comedy at long last. The Todd Phillips trilogy-capper will launch into theaters Memorial Day Weekend against Fast and Furious 6 in what is expected to be the biggest weekend for the holiday ever by a wide margin. That said, we were all wondering why neither film moved off the date especially with Star Trek Into Darkness one week prior. This debut trailer should shine some light on why Warner Bros. is not too incredibly worried. Continue Reading
Check out the latest poster for The Hangover Part III. It is a good one that parodies some Harry Potter artwork complete with the tagline “It All Ends” as the trilogy will be complete this Memorial Day Weekend. The title explains it all, but for some elaboration, its Zach Galifianakis’ Alan staring down Ken Jeong’s Mr. Chow. Just a heads up, usually this type of poster reveal means a trailer will come sooner rather than later, keep your eyes peeled for that.
Update: I was right (it happens.) The trailer will arrive tomorrow aka Thursday, March 7. Continue Reading
Zach Galifianakis is at it again with a special Academy Awards edition of Between Two Ferns. This time around, his guests include Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) and Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables) thus today’s honorable mention. Also included are Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained,) Amy Adams (The Master) and Naomi Watts (The Impossible,) Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook,) Sally Field (Lincoln,) and Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) all of whom received nominations this year. Watch as they undergo a gauntlet of awkward situational humor complements of The Hangover star. Continue Reading
It was seven months ago when we last heard of a Bored to Death movie in development, and now we have finally received an update suggesting the pic could be happening after all. HBO is apparently hard at work on crafting a big screen reunion for Zach Galifianakis, Ted Danson, and Jason Swartzman that would have the three reprising their roles.
The man responsible for creating the HBO comedy, Jonathan Ames, is already writing the script for a film with the following logline: “”Jonathan, Ray, and George reunite to fight crime, commit crime, lose their minds, and fail-at-love in a Bored to Death feature-length slapstick adventure.”
Details outside of that are still slim, but we certainly are going to be watching this one more and more as Zach Galifianakis will be looking for theatrical life after The Hangover which concludes its trilogy this May.
Just to recap the show’s ratings efficiency, this was yet another sad story in HBO’s failure to gain ground in the comedy arena following Sex and the City. After premiering to 1 million, the half-hour series lost 75% of that by time the third season rolled around thus its cancellation.
The reviews are in for Friday’s R-rated opener The Campaign. By and large, the reception has been favorable as the tandem of Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell has been called a good one. The two apparently have a lot of chemistry and it shows up on the big screen resulting in an insightful and hilarious effort from director Jay Roach.
Critics did not stop there with the love as they also found the movie to have a satirical spin that one would expect from the man behind the HBO films Game Change and Recount. Sometimes that gets lost in favor of humor, but for the most part it is there which is more than you can say about a whole lot of rival offerings in the genre who live or die with the laughs. Continue Reading
Here are five more television spots for The Campaign out to promote Friday’s new release. I am personally watching these under the assumption that Jay Roach will not recycle too many of the jokes in these promos thanks to the R-rating the film received, so I think it is safe if you plan on seeing this movie to go ahead and watch all these bits as the racier versions will be reserved for the big screen.
That said, the reviews are not out just yet so this picture could end up recycling the jokes after all and end up leaving a sour taste in a lot of people’s mouths. Sure, audiences just saw Seth MacFarlane’s Ted which recently crossed the $200 million line, but it does not exactly solidify the R-rated comedy genre as a dominant force in the industry if three out of every four are complete duds despite its A-list backing. Continue Reading
There is a brand new promo out for The Campaign gimmick-ed up as a political advertisement for Zach Galifianakis’ Marty Huggins. It looks to be pretty much a clip pulled from the Jay Roach-directed film, but there is a ton of improv between takes in Will Ferrell comedies so we fully expect for these jokes to get retooled for the big screen. Either way, it is an opportunity ahead of the feature’s release to get to see Galifianakis dressed up as ‘Lady Ga-Ga.’ Continue Reading
A few more TV spots have been released to promote the Jay Roach-directed comedy The Campaign. There is not much new footage (if at all) to be seen, but it is nice to see Warner Bros. is firmly behind their newest R-rated comedy starring Zach Galifianakis and Will Ferrell.
For those of you not in the know, the movie centers on two political candidates Cam Brady (Ferrell) and Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) who are in the midst of a congressional election. They each have presidential aspirations, making this a bit bigger than your typical race. Jason Sudeikis and Dylan McDermott play their respective campaign managers. Continue Reading
