Megyn Kelly Tells Stephen Colbert She Will Start Next GOP Debate With “Apology Accepted”

Megyn Kelly

“Why is Fox News feuding with Donald Trump,” Stephen Colbert asked FNC show host Megyn Kelly on tonight’s live post-Super Bowl broadcast of Late Show.  “What do you have against that good man. He’s just a billionaire who also wants to have the nuclear launch codes.” “Donald Trump has been on Fox News 140 times in the last year. We are not feuding with him. But he does have a beef with me,” Kelly responded. Colbert noted Trump’s tweet of a while back in which he said he… Read


Will Ferrell Brings Exotic Animals To Stephen Colbert’s Post-Super Bowl ‘Late Show’

SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration

Will Ferrell visited Stephen Colbert’s live post-Super Bowl Late Show dressed in knee socks, shorts, a vest, jacket and leather hat, and sporting a rifle. No, he had not watched the Super Bowl, because “there was a three-hour Downton Abbey.” “I’m curious about the outfit,” Colbert said, settling in to his role as Ferrell’s straight man. “I just noticed your Late Show is kind of new and you don’t really have an animal expert yet. I thought I could step in and fill the gap,”… Read

“I’m honored to follow the Super Bowl,” Stephen Colbert said tonight, opening The Late Show and becoming the first live late night show to get the plum post-Super Bowl timeslot. “Because we’re broadcasting live tonight, I can do anything and CBS has a team of lawyers standing by to make sure that I don’t,” he joked, putting a football in front of his hand as he gestured. Ticking off tonight’s guests – Will Ferrell, Tina Fey and Margot Robbie, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan… Read


‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’: 2 New TV Spots Promote Gotham City, Metropolis & Turkish Airlines

We’re still a month and a half away from the March 25 premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Warner Bros isn’t slowing down the film’s heavy, heavy marketing push for one second. Two new TV spots for the Zach Snyder-directed film just premiered after the end of Super Bowl 50 and they’re very, very meta. Created as part of a crosspromotional deal with Turkish Airlines, the trailers are designed as tourism Board promos for Gotham City and Metropolis, with each… Read

CBS recruited comedy filmmaker Peter Farrelly for a CBS All Access promo that premiered during the network’s Super Bowl telecast. The commercial, set to Marvin Gaye's Let's Get It On, features a mascot-inspired CBS Eye Guy in a series of vignettes touting the subscription streaming service. With his brother Bobby, Peter Farrelly is behind such feature film comedies as There's Something About Mary, Me, Myself & Irene, Dumb and Dumber and its sequel, Dumb and Dumber… Read


‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Super Bowl Trailer: Blue People Attack Each Other

X-Men Apocalypse

Fox is going for a big mutants-push during Super Bowl 50, not only dropping a new Deadpool trailer just before the game began, but now a new X-Men: Apocalypse spot. Watch it here right now. From 20th Century Fox, X-Men: Apocalypse is another period piece, this time set in the 1980s with younger (and recast) versions of Marvel’s mutants as they find themselves facing the first and most powerful mutant, Apocalypse, who has awakened after thousands of years with a plan to… Read


Jazzed Coldplay, Bruno Mars & Beyonce Harmonize At Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show – Review


Lady Gaga — all red (gown and eye glitter), blonde (the hair, of course) and blue (finger nails)  — won cheers and plaudits for a sturdy, dignified rendition of the National Anthem to lead off Super Bowl 50. A ferocious first half that included four quarterback sacks for Carolina closed out with the Broncos leading the Panthers 13 to 7. That set the stage for some serious halftime relief. It was delivered with a tip of the hats to past, present and future by Coldplay, Brun… Read


‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Super Bowl Trailer

Independence Day Resurgence title

The first proper trailer dropped back in December, but what could be more American, besides the Fourth of July of course, than football? Perfect, then, that Fox has unveiled a brand new trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence during Super Bowl 50, and you can watch it here. The last trailer emphasized continuity with the original film. This one emphasizes the new – new stars, new aliens, new ways to blow up and save the earth. And of course, new lines by Jeff Goldblum… Read


‘The Good Wife’ To End This Spring After Seven Seasons

Alan Cumming The Good Wife

CBS just announced with a promo during the Super Bowl that the current season of The Good Wife will be its last, with nine episodes left. The Good Wife’s future had been in limbo with the recent announcement that creators/executive producers/showrunners Robert and Michelle King would be departing the series after the current seventh season. While not completely unexpected — the duo had publicly discussed a plan to do the show for 7 seasons — the Super Bowl promo resolved… Read


‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2’ Super Bowl Trailer: No Sleep Til Brooklyn

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Well, the Super Bowl 50 trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows is as absurdly ridiculous as the one that dropped back in December. Like that earlier spot, once again the serious shift in tone compared to 2014’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is on full display, making it clear the series has made a serious left turn into knowing camp reminiscent of the 1980s cartoon. Watch it here. I expect people still annoyed by the Beastie Boys’ lawsuit against the… Read


‘Jason Bourne’ Super Bowl Teaser: Short, Sweet, Punching


You can set your Bourne puns aside, as the previously untitled Jason Bourne sequel now has an official name to go along with the new teaser that dropped during Super Bowl 50: Jason Bourne. Though to be honest, I was kind of hoping it would either be Bourne Free, or Bourne On The Fourth of July. Oh, well. It’s short and to the point: Universal’s super spy is back, and engaging in underground fights, and he’s needed for something. Persumably something that involves being… Read


‘The Jungle Book’ Super Bowl Spot: Multi-Media In The Rain Forest

The Jungle Book Bsaguera

Disney’s Super Bowl trailer onslaught continues again with a new trailer for Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book. Though the weird (and kind of cool) thing is the trailer didn’t actually play during the game – only a trailer for the trailer. The actual trailer was posted online, with a cute headline (“emoji”) and everything. Because we care, we have the full trailer, a 2 minutes-plus deeper look at the live action remake of the ’60s animated classic (and based on the Rudyard… Read
