Leno throws shade at President Trump, saying, "Is he that thin-skinned? You know, if this guy was any more of a pussy, he could grab himself."
Jeff Bridges is speaking quietly to his publicist. He’s Googled something that he wants her to print out before our interview at a swank West Hollywood hotel. What this could possibly be has us in suspense — much like Hell or High Water, the acclaimed film the 66-year-old actor is promoting. The taut yet blisteringly funny thriller puts Bridges’s grizzled Texas sheriff Marcus Hamilton, three weeks from retirement, on the trail of a pair of fraternal bank robbers Toby (Chris Pine) and Tanner Howard (Ben Foster) methodically hitting one branch at a time.
“This will all be over soon, gentlemen.” That line is Sir Patrick Stewart’s favorite from his acclaimed new thriller, Green Room, because of the delicious double meaning it carries. As Darcy Banker, Stewart is issuing those words of comfort to a punk band being held captive in a rural Oregon hole-in-the-wall after witnessing a murder at the hands of Neo-Nazis running the club. The line also sums up the sheer terror produced by Stewart’s character, the club’s calm, but extremely cold-blooded, owner who shows up to make the night a living hell in the taut, gory, and unpredictable film from Blue Ruin writer-director Jeremy Saulnier.
You don’t even have to sit through The Boss to hypothesize about who Melissa McCarthy’s larger-than-life Mama Warbucks, Michelle Darnell, might be based on. “I actually started Michelle Darnell about 15 years ago, I played her at the Groundlings,” McCarthy explained (watch above) at the film’s recent Los Angeles press day, shouting out the legendary Los Angeles improv collective that also counts Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Jack Black, Paul Reubens, Maya Rudolph, and McCarthy’s husband/Boss co-writer-director Ben Falcone as alumni.
The thought of Donald Trump becoming the 45th president of the United States is enough to scare the hair right off of some people. And the Photoshop aces on DesignCrowd have taken that Trump fear factor a few steps further — churning out over 100 images of the gaudy real estate mogul in scenes from iconic horror movies. Inspired by a photo of Trump terrorizing a knife-wielding Shelley Duvall in a meme from The Shining that went viral a few weeks ago, the Australian design firm crowd-sourced 124 similarly themed designs in an online contest. The winner, from a designer named Omee, was simple but inspired, adding Trump’s reflection to a glass door opposite a horrified Drew Barrymore in the first Scream.
Dependent on your point of view, some of the scariest movies ever made may have just gotten a whole lot scarier. Artists website Design Crowd hit upon the brilliant, hilarious and yet horrifying idea of calling upon contributors worldwide to photoshop images of Donald Trump into classic horror movie images - and the results, funnily enough, are brilliant, hilarious and yet horrifying. - What’s On The Big Screen This Halloween - Cast of Scream, Then & Now - Ellen Page To Star In Flatliners Remake Above, courtesy of designer Madeli, we can of course see what the most famous moment in ‘The Shining’ might be like with Trump in the place of Jack Nicholson: “Here’s Donny,” anyone? Below, Omee shows us how ‘Scream’ would have looked with Trump being the one asking if we like scary movies: See Why shows us Trump getting hairy in ‘An American Werewolf In London:’ Enzzok gives us Trump as Hannibal Lecter in ‘The Silence of the Lambs:’ That same artist also puts Trump in place of the titular beast of ‘Alien³:’ Continuing on an ‘Alien’ theme, Senja adds a whole new level to Ripley’s nightmare sequence in ‘Aliens:’ Digging further back into film history, the scene with the little girl by the river in ‘Frankenstein’ suddenly seems even more sinister thanks to B74Design: Whilst Creative Shots Studio put him in the small shoes of Damien in ‘The Omen.’ CreArt pits him against Freddy Krueger: Jkrebs04 makes us ponder whether we need a bigger boat: And, perhaps the funniest of all, iMagications puts Trump in ‘The Grudge.’
Saturday Night Live firmly endorsed Hillary Clinton during its season premiere. The real Hillary introduced one of host Miley Cyrus’ musical performances. Real Hillary played a bartender pouring drinks for Kate McKinnon’s Hillary in a sketch designed to show what a good sport Hillary Clinton is. And SNL took shots both smart and silly at Bernie Sanders, the other Democratic candidates the show says no one knows, as well as slapping around Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, and every Republican in sight.
Donald Trump may have some controversial political views, but as the above video shows, the 69-year-old presidential candidate (and aspiring movie star) has great taste in film — even if some of his cinematic interpretations are a bit unconventional. Long before he was the star of NBC’s The Apprentice or the unlikely leader of the Republican presidential primary, Trump was a mere celebrity billionaire, which gave him time to participate in a mini-documentary project with Oscar-winning documentarian Errol Morris. One interview that didn’t make the final cut was Trump talking about his favorite movie, the 1941 classic Citizen Kane.
In 2011, investigative journalist Anthony Baxter released 'You’ve Been Trumped,' and now he's back with another Trump takedown.
