Disney's live-action reboot of The Lion King may well break box office records, judging by the insane level of excitement built up around it.

The flick nailed an all-star cast featuring the original Mufasa himself (James Earl Jones), Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, Donald Glover (AKA Childish Gambino), Chiwetel Ejiofor, John Oliver, John Kani, Eric Andre, Keegan Michael-Key and…

Who are we forgetting?

Oh yes… BEYONCÉ KNOWLES-CARTER as Nala. We're slain.

Naturally, there's an ecstatic amount of nostalgia, especially from us 90s kids out there. Thankfully, during last night's Oscars ceremony, Disney released an extended The Lion King trailer and we died.

How can we possibly wait until July 2019 to see Jon Favreau's epic Pride Lands tale, based on Shakespeare's Hamlet?

More live-action reboots are on the way, following the success of The Jungle Book, which boasts the same director as The Lion King. Dumbo, directed by Tim Burton will arrive in theatres this March, followed by Guy Ritchie's Aladdin in May.

Just like The Jungle Book, Favreau's Lion King uses CGI to bring an entirely animal cast to life in an incredibly realistic-looking format.

Donald Glover, This Is America musical legend, stars as Simba, the orphaned lion cub who returns to Pride Rock to take his place as king.

Beyoncé Knowles-Carter plays Simba's love interest, Nala, while Chiwetel Ejiofor plays the villainous scar. Seth Rogen and Billy Eicher were cast as Pumbaa and Timon, Simba's beloved comic relief companions

We honestly won't be able to see this in cinema, we'd have to be restrained due to the sheer excitement of it all. Cannot cope.

When Katherine Heigl slammed the movie she starred in alongside Seth Rogen in 2007, the Canadian actor admitted he felt fairly taken aback by the star's take on their time filming together.

Speaking to Howard Stern at the beginning of the week, Seth explained that he had fond memories of filming Knocked Up with Katherine, and was surprised that the Grey's Anatomy star didn't feel the same.

And yet despite the less-than-subtle hammering Katherine gave Seth and filmmaker Judd Apatow in the press following the movie's release almost a decade ago, Seth wished Katherine the best this week.

And it looks like Seth's kind words had an effect on the star who has been known to call out her co-workers over the course of her professional career.

Reflecting on Seth's chat with Howard on Monday, Katherine said: "I think he's handled it so beautifully. I feel nothing but love and respect."

While attending the 2016 Television Critics Association Summer Tour Party on Wednesday, Katherine acknowledged that she never doubted the pair's mutual respect, and was keen to riciprocate.

"It was so long ago, and I just wish him so much goodness. I felt that from him, too," she told the press.

Aw, you guys!



It's no secret that Katherine Heigl was far from impressed with Knocked Up – a movie which she starred in alongside Seth Rogen – when it eventually hit cinema screens in 2007.

In the year following the comedy's release, the Grey's Anatomy star slammed the apparent gender divide created by the film's producers.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Katherine insisted the film portrayed "women as shrews, as humourless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys."

And it sounds like her co-star, Seth, was not only stunned by the actress's take on the comedy, but also couldn't help but take many of her comments quite personally.

Speaking on Howard Stern's radio show this week, Seth echoed the thoughts of millions of movie fans.

"I thought we had a great dynamic, people seemed to like it, we were funny together," Seth recalled. "I was having a really good time, and then when I heard afterwards that she didn’t like it…your trust feels somewhat betrayed."

Surprised that the actress didn't speak up during filming, Seth added: " We have a very open process. We’re like, 'You have the ability to say anything at any moment. I don’t like how I’m coming across here."

Katherine, who is known for speaking out against directors and producers she has worked with over the course of her career, experienced professional backlash as a result of her comments – something which Seth feels regret over.

"I respect the fact that maybe that perhaps she realises it has hurt her career. And I don’t want that to have happened to her at all," he told Howard.

Insistent that Katherine, who played Alison in the movie, had every right to voice her opinion before, during and after production, Seth admitted he felt it was unfair her career may have suffered as a result.

"Especially if she is being honest, the only people who, in this situation, should in any way take anything from it is me and Judd," he argued. "Because we are the ones she was talking about. For other people to not work with her because she didn’t like her experience with us is crazy."

We've said it before and we'll say it again, that Seth is a stand-up lad.


Seth Rogen appeared on The Tonight Show on Friday, where he faced off against Jimmy Fallon in one of our favourite lip-sync battles to date. 

Jimmy kicked things off with Kent Jones’ Don’t Mind, followed by Seth's live rendition of The Roots’ very own track Mellow My Man.

Jimmy tried to redeem himself with his second song, Slam by Onyx, but was outdone once again by the Knocked Up star.

Seth, who claimed he was going back to his Canadian roots, closed the performance with an amazing Hotline Bling rendition. 

The 34-year-old ditched his suit jacket, and opted for a Drake-style knitted turtle neck. 

Seth went all out for his performance of the Drake song, and he may have done the rapper’s dance moves better than him!

If you've ever seen Superbad, you'll know that the 2007 movie is absolutely chock-full of juvenile jokes and immature humour – hardly surprising given that the two main characters are still weeks from graduating high school.

However, it looks like the movie's writer, Seth Rogen, harbours some regrets when it comes to the movie's questionable script which he actually began writing at the age of 13.

Recently speaking to The Guardian newspaper, the 34-year-old writer and actor explained that he regrets the “blatantly homophobic” gags which were a constant throughout the movie which starred Jonah Hill and Michael Cera.

"It’s funny looking at some movies we’ve made in the last 10 years under the lenses of new eras, new social consciousness," he said when discussing the film which grossed $169.9 million worldwide.

"There’s for sure some stuff in our earlier movies and even in our more recent movies where even like a year later you’re like, ‘Eh, maybe that wasn’t the greatest idea'" he said.

While acknowledging that the, at times, homophobic script was delivered by highschool characters, he's not comfortable that the filmmakers were "to some degree glamourising that type of language in a lot of ways."

We wonder if he regrets those bizarre penis drawings as much…



Seth Rogen's new movie is something we didn't expect at all – but we have a feeling it's going to be hilarious.

The trailer for the cartoon movie dropped on Monday during the South by Southwest Film Festival.

With sight gags, many double entendres and just about every food pun imaginable, this movie is definitely not one to bring your mammy to see.

But behind all of the jokes, there's actually a pretty good story. One of the characters (an Irish potato, no less) has their rose-tinted glasses removed and realises the world isn't all that great.

With Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, Kristin Wiig and Jonah Hill all taking part, you know this is a movie you won't want to miss. We think…


We are totally buggin' over this Clueless inspired video featuring some of our ultimate celebrity crushes. 

Someone over in W Magazine had the genius of idea of doing a casting call with a couple of top Hollywood actors. As you do. 

And the role they would be auditioning for? 

Our favourite ditsy, blonde; Cher Horotwitz from Clueless of course.

Paul Dano, Seth Rogen, Jake Gyllenhaal and Bradley Cooper are tasked with reading that iconic scene from early in the film in which Cher takes part in a class debate. 

While Bradley does a decent job, Seth Rogen steals the show with his melodramatic spin on the ridiculous speech. 

As for Paul Dano and Jake….

Watch the hilarious video below: 




We were big fans of Bad Neighbours when it came out back in 2014.

From a shirtless Zac Efron to THAT milking scene, it had a lot going for it. 

So we were a tad sceptical when a sequel was announced but this trailer had put all our reservations to rest. 

Boasting the original cast plus a few fresh faces in the form of Chloe Moretz and Selena Gomez, we reckon this is going to be an early Summer smash. 

Hilarious couple Mac and Kelly are looking to sell their house and move into the quiet suburbs. However, this plan may be in jeopardy because while they may have got rid of the fraternity living next door, they now have to deal with a particularly rowdy sorority. 

Watch the hilarious trailer below: 



Is there any limit to Saoise Ronan's talents?

She has just been nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in Brooklyn and it now turns out that the Irish actress can also sing. 

In a video for W Magazine, a number of famous faces were asked to reinterpret Drake's stellar tune, Hotline Bling. 

And evidently in good spirits, the Dublin born talent donned a blonde wig and belted out the tune at the top of her lungs. 

While some simply read the lyrics and others attempted to act it out, we just love watching Saoirse having a good time. 

Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen do a pretty hysterical reading but we also love Brie Larson giving the tune socks as well. 

Watch the hilarious video below: 




With so many celebs becoming victims of hacking lately, you'd think they'd all be rushing to make sure their steamy snaps are kept private.

Not James Franco or Seth Rogen though, Ohhhh, no.

The Pineapple Express stars were out and about for an afternoon stroll over the weekend and decided to make themselves at one with nature – at least that's what we're assuming happened.

The two BFFs posed for this happy snap, posted on James' Instagram:

Then, took a drive in someone's van:

And finished the day with a boogie (thanks for blurring our the bold bits for us, James – a very professional job, too!):

Now, while we'd love to think this was all just a bit of craic, the captions all reference the words "Naked and Afraid" which happens to be the name of a show on Discovery Channel, on which two strangers have to survive together in the wild… totally nude.

Well, these two aren't exactly strangers but we reckon it would still be worth a watch!



North Korea have labelled Seth Rogen’s new film as an “act of terrorism”.

The Interview is a comedy about a TV producer and a chat show host, who are ordered by the CIA to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

However, North Korea have made a complaint to the United Nations. They said in a letter published this week: “the production and distribution of such a film on the assassination of an incumbent head of a sovereign state should be regarded as the most undisguised sponsoring of terrorism as well as an act of war.”

Yikes – we wouldn’t want to be accused of partaking in an ‘act of war’ in this day and age! What’s Rogen going to do about this?



Seth Rogen and James Franco are set to assassinate Kim Jong-un in their latest film The Interview.

Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show Skylark Tonight and when they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of their show they manage to land an interview with him. However, their plans go off course when they are recruited by the CIA to assassinate the dictator.

The trailer for the film has been released, and as can be expected for the comedy duo, it looks like there are going to be a lot of laughs along the way!

The film is out on October 10th.
