Dear Sony: Please Release ‘The Interview’ On VOD As Soon As Possible

Sony Pictures announced this afternoon that they have cancelled the December 25 theatrical release of The Interview after receiving several anonymous threats promising violence akin to the 9/11 attacks on cinemas choosing to screen the film. We can debate for hours over whether or not this was the best course of action, but the fact remains there has never been more buzz for The Interview than there is right now. Despite all their best efforts to bury this film, the hackers currently attacking Sony have only made more people curious about the latest comedic romp from James Franco and Seth Rogen. Even people who don’t usually see movies with these stars want to see The Interview, and as word gets out about the cancelled Christmas Day release, that demand will only continue to grow.

Watch Geeky Justin Timberlake And Jimmy Fallon Sing Along To Third Eye Blind

There aren’t a lot of things better than two nerds away at summer camp singing to a hit alt-rock track at midnight. This is what happened on last night’s ‘Camp Winnipesaukee’ segment of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

The sketch features two geeky campers, Jimmy Fallon and R&B sensation Justin Timberlake, as they play “truth or dare” on their way to bed. The two talk about their love for Full House and are shortly caught jamming out to Third Eye Blind’s hit “Jumper” before they are reprimanded by their unpleasant troop leader.

You can catch the adorably geeky duo singing along to “Jumper” below, and maybe sing along yourself. Read more »

The Devil Wears Prada Announce Five-Year Anniversary Tour For ‘Zombie’ EP

In recent years, it’s become somewhat standard for bands to play their respective full-length albums in full for ten-year anniversary tours, but playing an EP from front to back is something we’re not yet accustomed to seeing often.

The Devil Wears Prada are turning this around in playing their apocalyptic Zombie EP in its entirety for the ‘Zombie 5 Tour’ next year. The tour will start on March 15 in Nashville, TN at Rocketown and end on April 16 in Chicago, IL at the House of Blues. Support for the ‘Zombie 5 Tour’ will come from Born of Osiris, The Word Alive, and Secrets. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, December 19, at 10am local time.
