It’s time to scare it up, my fellow geeks! Monsters University sees its home release, and surprisingly, the Blu-ray edition of Pixar’s latest feature is wicked good. Explore Monsters University with me, shall we?
James P. Sullivan (John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) may have given the impression they were always best buddies in Monsters, Inc., but Monsters University proves just the opposite. Travel back in time with Sulley and Mikey to their young adulthood, when Sulley’s pomposity and Mike’s unabashed idealism contrasted with their older personalities. Mike craves to scare for a living, despite his less-than-menacing appearance, and must prove to naysayers that he belongs at the Scare School. He works ceaselessly to understand ways to haunt and chill. Sulley, on the other hand, thinks his family name and reputation will lead him on a road to success, but his egotism impairs his image and potential. The two must collaborate with the non-impressive Oozma Kappa fraternity to save their spots in the Scare School.
In addition to returning stars including Billy Crystal, John Goodman, and Steve Buscemi, some new names are being announced for Pixar’s highly anticipated Monsters, Inc. prequel, Monsters University.
New voices who will join in on the fun this time around include geek god Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Slither), Bonnie Hunt (Jerry Maguire, The Green Mile), and John Krasinski (The Office, Away We Go).
Fillion will voice Johnny Worthington (seen above with the horns), the president of the Roar Omega Roar fraternity, while Krasinski will be a super star scarer at Monsters, Inc. and Hunt will voice a young Mike Wazowski’s grade school teacher.
The first trailer for the Farrelly Brothers‘ long-awaited and oft-troubled new take on The Three Stooges has arrived, and it is pretty painful to watch.
There was always a dim ray of hope that maybe the movie would end up surprising us with word that it would be in three segments and that they would be able to use the Three Stooges theme music, as well as rumored stars like Jim Carrey, Sean Penn, and Benicio Del Toro. But as you’ll see, with stars Will Sasso, Sean Hayes, and Chris Diamantopoulos (not to mention Snooki from MTV’s Jersey Shore, for some inexplicable reason) this is already the vandalization of a beloved classic we feared it would be.
You can see the trailer for The Three Stooges by clicking on over to the other side now.
While this labor of love for the Farrelly Brothers has taken quite a bit of time and pain to get to the big screen, we finally have our first look at the cast of the upcoming adaptation of The Three Stooges.
The film stars Will Sasso, Sean Hayes, and Chris Diamantopoulos as Curly, Larry and Moe, respectively, and I must say, this looks absolutely awful.
It’s not much, but if you were wondering what Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly‘s The Three Stooges are going to look like, we now have a basic idea in the form of a teaser banner (above), as well as a new teaser poster that doesn’t show much of anything.
It’s only the top of their heads, but the new Stooges look pretty much what you probably envisioned in your head they would look like when hearing that we had gone from Jim Carrey, Sean Penn, and Benicio Del Toro playing the famed trio to Will Sasso (MADtv, Happy Gilmore), Sean Hayes (Will & Grace, The Bucket List), and Chris Diamantopoulos (24, The Kennedys).
