Sean Spicer Just Responded To Melissa McCarthy’s Emmy Win In Cringeworthy Interview

 

Over the weekend, Melissa McCarthy won a Creative Arts Emmy award in the category of “best guest actress in a comedy series” for playing former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live. McCarthy’s impression was immensely popular, and clips of her playing the embittered, combative Spicer repeatedly went viral.

Now, Spicer has responded to McCarthy’s win. TheBlast.com reports that Spicer was asked for his thoughts on the development and responded that he and McCarthy should share the award.

“Were you honored or offended at the portrayal of you that Melissa McCarthy did of you on SNL?” a man asked Spicer as he exited an Amtrak station Washington, D.C.

“The first one was funny,” Spicer responded, visibly uncomfortable as the man follows him with a camera.

“Hey, Sean she just won an Emmy award for the portrayal of you on SNL. Do you think she owes you part of that award?” the man asked.

“I think we should share it,” Spicer answered. Spicer was then asked if he would host SNL if asked. Spicer said if asked, he would have a conversation about it. It seems unlikely to happen, as networks seem less than eager to employ the disgraced ex-White House Staffer. CNN previously said they would not be offering him a job.

“Who got the most laughs in the White House out of the SNL skits? You or Kellyanne Conway?” the man asks Spicer. Conway — Trump’s former campaign manager and current Counselor — was the creator of the now-infamous inane phrase “alternative facts” and served as a recurring target of ridicule on SNL.

“Great question. Let’s see. I’m out first, so hopefully, I did,” Spicer said. The implication seems to be that he expects Conway to be ousted at some point.

When asked if the president joined conversations about the skits, Spicer said he thinks the president has a “great sense of humor,” and that they all laughed together sometimes about the show. It seems unlikely to be true, as Trump is infamously incapable of laughing at himself, and possesses a thin-skin when it comes to himself and his team.

The video ends with Spicer signing an autograph for a man, who reprimands Spicer for doing a poor job of it.

Watch the first full trailer for Marvel’s Black Panther

The first full trailer for Marvel’s Black Panther is here, and it gives us a better look at the world of Wakanda, where T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) is the newly crowned king. In the trailer, we see Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), as he attempts to dethrone the Black Panther, plus lots of slow-motion, aerial views, and tight spandex. Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) reminds the Black Panther, “You get to decide what kind of king you are going to be.”

Directed by Ryan Coogler, Black Panther is a highly anticipated addition to Marvel’s cinematic slate, and it’s the first Marvel film to feature a predominately black cast.

Black Panther comes out on February 16th, 2018.

Justice League Star Announces ‘Flash Week’

Justice League Star Announces ‘Flash Week’

 

With Justice League approaching its release, ‘The Flash’ week is now underway. While fans have already had a whole movie each featuring Wonder Woman and Superman and saw the two join forces with Batman last year, the other members of the Justice League aren’t quite as familiar. Out of all of them, however, The Flash is the best known. Even before his hit TV show on The CW, The Flash has long been one of DC’s most popular character.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad both featured cameos from Ezra Miller as The Flash, and Barry Allen has gotten plenty of screen time in the Justice League trailers so far; and for those who have seen the movie, he’s apparently one of Justice League‘s best parts. Still, Warner Bros and DC want to make sure audiences know what separates this take on the hero from the one who’s been on The CW for years. As such, this week’s Justice League ad campaign is all about the Scarlet Speedster.

Justice League is kicking off ‘Flash Week’ today, with a new video featuring Miller. All week, new content will arrive focusing on Barry Allen, including new footage from the film. You can watch said announcement clip with Miller, below:

 

 

Last week, Justice League put the spotlight on Aquaman, revealing new footage of him in the film along with commentary from Jason Momoa. ‘Flash Week’ is starting even earlier this week, so we should get even more from the hero and his actor. While Aquaman will get his own solo film next year, WB and DC have yet to announce an official release date for The Flash’s solo movie, Flashpoint. Hopefully, Justice League will help sell fans on Miller’s character and increase anticipation for the solo adventure.

As we await more insight on The Flash, the marketing for Justice League has continued to offer promos, new footage, and interviews with the cast. So far, we learned about the weaknesses of each Justice League member. Though they seem god-like, they do have individual shortcomings. We also learned how Cyborg’s origin will differ from the comics. Like Aquaman and The Flash, he will get more time in the spotlight soon (and considering he’s nowhere near as well-known, he’ll certainly need it). In the meantime, stay tuned as more information on The Flash in Justice League is revealed.

Jigsaw Trailer Recaps The Saw Franchise

Jigsaw Trailer Recaps The Saw Franchise

 

A new trailer for Jigsaw gives fans and newcomers alike a refresher course on the series so far. The Saw franchise was a staple for horror fans every Halloween in the mid to late 2000s, until the series seemingly called it quits with The Final Chapter back in 2010. The Saw movies revolved around the exploits of John Kramer, a man diagnosed with a terminal illness who decides to use the time he has left to kidnap victims and test them to see how much they value their lives.

He would place inside vicious, themed traps, where they would usually have to shed some blood – or limbs – to survive; most of them didn’t. The series is one of the few horror franchises that paid close attention to continuity, with each sequel building on characters and plot revelations from the previous entry. By the time the series reached part seven, though, the story had gotten too convoluted for many, and it felt like Saw had run out of steam by the time The Final Chapter opened in theaters.

Jigsaw aims to revive the series once more, and a new trailer has appeared that quickly recaps the first seven Saw movies, and explains Kramer’s motivations and philosophy. The new sequel follows a fresh batch of victims being tested – and tormented – by the legendary Jigsaw… which should be impossible, since John Kramer died in Saw III.

It will be interesting to see if Jigsaw does well, since audiences seemed burnt out on the series back when The Final Chapter was released. The Saw franchise belongs to an era of horror commonly known as “torture porn”, which typically featured victims being graphically tortured and dismembered. Other movies from this subgenre including the Hostel films, The Collector and Wolf Creek; and while they proved profitable for a few years, their inherent nastiness soon turned most viewers off.

The original Saw was actually more of a taut thriller with little in the way of gore, and this new entry appears to be playing up the mystery of who exactly is behind the new tests. Jigsaw may have also lucked out in terms of timing since horror is experiencing a real boon right now. IT is now one of the highest grossing horror movies of all time, and Blumhouse is having a great year thanks to films like Happy Death Day, Split and Get Out.

With Pennywise emerging as a new horror icon, and the forthcoming Halloween reboot bringing Michael Myers back to life, maybe there’s room after all for Jigsaw in the modern horror scene.
