Krampus Movie Adam Scott

Krampus
Directed by Michael Dougherty
Written by Todd Casey, Michael Dougherty, Zach Shields
Starring Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Emjay Anthony, Stefania LaVie Owen, Krista Stadler
Legendary Pictures | Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 98 minutes
Release date: December 4, 2015

Director Michael Dougherty previously took the superstitions of the Halloween season and molded them into superbly told stories for his horror anthology film Trick ’r Treat. Now, the filmmaker takes on Alpine folklore’s anti-Santa in his Christmas horror Krampus. Though it’s a while before the horned and hoofed baddie makes his on-screen appearance in the film, when he does arrive during a massive blizzard, he brings with him an unfathomable reign of terror the likes of which young Max and his family have never seen.

It’s a few days before Christmas, and Max (Emjay Anthony) is finding it hard to spread the cheer this year. After having a physical fight during a Christmas pageant, the prepubescent boy fails at getting his family to follow their usual holiday customs. He just wants things to be the way they used to be before his dad David (Adam Scott) became a busy workaholic; his mom Sarah (Toni Collette) closed herself off and became an overachieving Martha Stewart type; and his stereotypically distant teen sister Megan (Stefania LaVie Owen) hit puberty and stopped bothering with him. Thankfully, Max can still find comfort in Omi (Austrian-born actress Krista Stadler), his homely old bun-wearing grandma who seems very adamant that her grandson finish writing his annual Letter to Santa.

Krampus

Universal Pictures has released a new featurette for Krampus, the Christmas horror flick from Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty.

The new video briefly dives into the folklore behind Krampus, a demon-like creature who kidnaps the kids too naughty to be visited by Santa. The video also covers the way the figure is celebrated in other countries—young men will often dress up as the terrifying creature and frighten the local children on the eve of Saint Nicholas Day, though some of the costumes are no doubt scary enough to make even adults want to flee, arms flailing about—as well as some appearances in pop culture.

You can check out the new Krampus featurette below.

Krampus Header Image

Yesterday we saw the first official images from the upcoming Christmas horror flick Krampus, which is made by Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty, who also co-wrote the script with Zach Shields and Todd Casey. If those images got you super excited to watch a trailer, well, you did not have to wait very long to see it.

Today Universal has unleashed the first official trailer for Krampus, and it looks like it has the potential to be a whole lot of fun. And the best part of the trailer is? All of the wonderful Weta-made practical effects being shown off. Much love to Dougherty and his crew for choosing this path and Legendary Pictures for not trying to force more CGI effects. Digital effects will still be used in the movie—it’s hard to avoid using them completely these days—but using the two forms of effects hand-in-hand is the way to go and it looks the results are worth being excited for.

You can check out the first official trailer for Krampus below.

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse

Once in a while the zombie apocalypse gets a comedic twist (Shaun of the Dead), which is something a bit refreshing considering the genre’s subject matter (a group of survivors forced to work together against a hoard of zombies). Paramount has just released the first trailer for Christopher Landon‘s Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse, starring Tye Sheridan (The Tree of Life, X-Men: Apocalypse), David Koechner (Anchorman, Piranha 3DD), Logan Miller (Night Moves, The Stanford Prison Experiment), Halston Sage (Neighbors, Paper Towns), Joey Morgan, Patrick Schwarzenegger (Grown Ups 2, Dear Eleanor), and Cloris Leachman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Young Frankenstein).

Anchorman 2 The Legend Continues Movie PosterAnchorman 2:
The Legend Continues

Director: Adam McKay
Writers: Will Ferrell, Adam McKay
Cast: Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, David Koechner, Christina Applegate, Meagan Good, James Marsden, Dylan Baker
Paramount Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 119 Minutes
Release Date: December 18, 2013

By the hymen of Olivia Newton-John!

2004’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy is, without question, one of the funniest comedies of all time. If it were a hiney, it would be absolutely breathtaking.

With absurd, quote-worthy dialogue and hyper-masculine, mustachioed man-children, Adam Mckay and Will Ferrell‘s 2004 film is a cult classic.

In Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, the Dynamic Duo of Dick Jokes have made a sequel so batshit crazy, so marvelously idiotic, that comparisons to the first film are nigh impossible. This exercise in insanity feels more like a B-side to Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie, that bizarro bonus movie assembled from Anchorman‘s abandoned subplots and alternate takes. To put it bluntly, this movie is fucking nuts.

Anchorman 2

“Jesus….MacArthur….Jay-Z….the great ones….always return.”

The four dots are meant to represent dramatic pauses. Work with me here, people.

Paramount Pictures has unveiled the latest trailer for the highly anticipated comedy sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. You can check it out here below.

When I saw that a new trailer for Anchorman 2 had hit today I tracked it down with the hope that we would finally get a first look at scenes from the sequel that has been in the works in one form or another for nearly a decade. No go friends. Instead we once again get the Channel 4 News Team – lead anchorman Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), field reporter Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), sports anchor Champ Kind (David Koechner), and weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carrell) – giving direct-to-camera quips, showing us that the team chemistry is still there despite having been mothballed since Bush II ran for reelection.

Harrison Ford

The cast for Anchorman: The Legend Continues – or Anchorman 2 if you prefer numbered sequel titles instead of surnames – just keeps getting better and crazier. Original stars Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner, and Christina Applegate have all long been confirmed to reprise their roles as the Channel 4 News Team with original director Adam McKay once again calling the shots and writing the script. The cast has also recently added names like John C. Reilly, Kristen Wiig, James Mardsen, Meagan Good, and Dylan Baker, most of whom’s roles have yet to be revealed.

And now the biggest Anchorman 2-related casting news has dropped as it was announced today that none other than Harrison Ford has signed on to co-star in the eagerly-anticipated comedy sequel. Ford would be playing the role of a legendary newscaster in the mold of Tom Brokaw who is admired by Ferrell’s clueless but charismatic anchorman Ron Burgundy. The silver screen icon best known for playing larger-than-life action heroes like Han Solo in Star Wars and the title character in the Indiana Jones film series also played a newscaster in the 2010 romantic comedy Morning Glory.
