This past Wednesday, Conan O’Brien hosted a Google Hangout session with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson where people were able to ask questions and interact with all three. They also debuted the trailer for their new movie The Internship, starring both Vaughn and Wilson. This will pair up the two again in what looks like, as he said in the trailer, a “Hunger Games for the minds.”

The trailer made me chuckle a bit, but I didn’t really find it that funny. I feel it landed kind of short on the jokes. I just don’t understand how these characters don’t know who Professor Xavier is. They seem to be the type of people who would have got that it was a joke. Either way, I will be looking forward to this because I am a fan of Vince Vaughn. The movie comes out June 7th 2013.

Here is the first Clip of jOBS starting Ashton Kutcher as Steve and Josh Gad as Wozniak. It’s kind of hard to only see Kutcher as Kutcher. I know this is the only clip out but, Ashton Kutcher has been in our eyes holes for too long with all those Nikon ads, I only see Ashton.

I’m still interested to see this move. I’m still pulling for it. There is another film that is in the works by Aaron Sorkin based on the book Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. That one, I am in much more anticipation for!

UPDATE: Steve Wozniak gives weighs in about the clip. Link is to TechnoBuffalo via Gizmodo.

Here is a best of 2012 list from friend of the show Francis Sky.  So read, enjoy, and leave some feedback because after all these lists are not supposed to end the conversations, but meant to start them. Now on to the list:

MOVIES

 

 

 

 

1. Avengers– This was probably the most fun I had at the movies in a while.  Marvel managed to put some of its top characters in the same movie without over saturating the content.  Director Joss Whedon managed to make a comic film that both does not insult old fans and does not punish the new ones.  All the characters were given equal time to shine and the final battle in New York was a wonder to behold in 3D.

 

 

 

 

2. Frankenweenie– Frankenweenie felt like a return to form for Tim Burton.  Combining elements of classic horror with a morbid sense of humor, the film felt like something in the vein of earlier works like Beetlejuice.  The emotional buttons were also pushed, because who can’t sympathize with losing a pet?  Unfortunate timing (coming after Paranorman and Hotel Transylvania) really hurt its box office, but hopefully it can find a bigger audience on DVD/Blu-ray.

I’m sure all of you in our SSWL family know that we are friends of Director Ryan O’ Leary. Well, we were lucky enough to score an exclusive photo from his upcoming feature film The Backseat. The movie stars Chris Bellant, Allyson Reilly, Craig Kelly, Costas Nicholas, and Lori Hamilton as Mrs. Offerman.

Synopsis:

“High school social outcasts Roy Offerman and Larry DiMarco struggle to find a drummer for their new punk rock band, Witness My Jehovah. As Roy will learn, sometimes finding the answer to one problem only brings about a host of others. Immediately after finding a drummer, Roy is plagued by a raging case of hemorrhoids.”

To see more stills and get updates on the movie, ‘Like’ their Facebook Page. The more likes it gets, Ryan will randomly put out more stills.

You have to admit that you’ve always wanted to go time traveling. Whether you are taking a DeLorean, the TARDIS or H.G. Wells’ machine, we have all dreamed of going back in time. In reality we know it’s not possible (yet). But what if you came across an ad that said “WANTED: Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. You’ll be paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. I have only done this once before. SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED.” This was an actual ad that I first heard about on the internet show Diggnation and now it has turned into a movie by FilmDistrict.

The movie is about three people who work at a magazine that come across the ad and decide to find out who this person is and what he is all about by answering the ad. The movie stars Aubrey Plaza (Scott Pilgrim), Jake M. Johnson (New Girl), Karan Soni, and Mark Duplass (Jeff Who Lives at Home). It was directed by Colin Trevorrow, written by Derek Connolly, and produced by the same people who did Little Miss Sunshine.
