This year Hitchcock's Psycho turns 50 — half a decade later, Marion Crane (Janet Leigh)'s visit to the Bates Motel continues to terrify. Events are being held around the country to honor this spine-tingling classic, including a free anniversary screening this weekend during the Atlanta Film Festival. We honor the occasion with a list of equally horrific bathroom scenes. Continue to 7 Other Reasons to Stay Dirty >> Posted 04.16.10 by reelz
First, there was White Castle. Then there was Guantanamo Bay. Now Harold and Kumar are going a third location, which so far has yet to be revealed. John Cho gave a few details about the sequel to Collider.
It's called A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas. The script has been turned in — I haven't read it — but I from what I know I think we catch up a little bit later in Harold and Kumar's lives. It takes place over the holiday season and I think this could a be a legit holiday movie, which is a shocker, but...I think their intent is to honor the holiday movie style, that genre.
Cho says the are still looking for a director and he isn't sure how the scheduling will work for Kal Penn, who has accepted a position as an associate director in the White House Office of Public Liason. Still, Cho told Movieweb that they are planning to shoot the movie this summer.
That's for the summer. We're supposed to start shooting it this summer, that's the plan and if I'm not mistaken I think they want to release it this Christmas.
The sequel should see the return of Neil Patrick Harris, which pleases Cho, who couldn't stop complimenting the actor.
He really did us a favor and did that movie. I couldn't be happier for him. If we are at all connected to all the good stuff that's happening with him then I couldn't be more pleased. He deserves it so much. Doesn't he? He's just amazing. He's one of the last true entertainers. The rest of us are just actors I guess? This guy does everything. Did you know he is a magician as well? He's a magician, singer, dancer and an actor. I mean this guy can really do everything.
As for where Harold and Kumar will be going in the third movie, Cho is uncertain. "I don't know," he said. "[but] I guarantee at least a couple good times." Posted 03.18.10 by Ryan
Every now and then there's a casting choice that seems predestined, a true chicken/egg situation. A role it's impossible to believe wasn't written with a particular actor in mind. Or a case where it seems cosmic forces must have been at play, birthing the perfect star for a role just waiting to make the jump from the page to the big screen.
We certainly had that reaction when we saw the first Alice in Wonderland poster. In the following video feature, our Mighty Movie Geek takes a look at Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter, along with five other stars and the roles they were born to play. We call it the Deppage Factor. Posted 03.04.10 by reelz
In the tradition of Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke and Half Baked, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle found a loyal audience of stoners back in 2004. The flick didn't really catch on until DVD (guess it's hard to get stoners out to the theater) but since has become a very quotable classic of the genre.
Now the duo of Kal Penn and John Cho (and of course Neil Patrick Harris as Neil Patrick Harris) return. This time, the stakes have been upped. Instead of just searching for some tasty White Castle burgers, the duo now have to escape from Guantanamo Bay.

With their 2004 sleeper hit Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle now a certified cult classic, screenwriters Hayden Schlossberg and Jon Hurwitz have finally gotten around to penning a sequel. In an interview with our favorite mensch, jewreview.net's Shmuel Reuven, they revealed the plot details of Harold & Kumar 2:
"Kumar brings this device on the plane that allows him to get high in the bathroom while no one is watching and no one will smell the smoke. This device kind of looks like a bomb - or at least to some of the passengers on the plane who are uncomfortable about sitting next to an Indian guy to begin with. They see him with this device and somebody yells, 'Terrorist,' and the next thing you know, there's air marshals all over them. They just assume they'll just get out of it because they did nothing wrong; without any trial or anything, they end up in Guantanamo Bay."
Look for Harold & Kumar 2 sometime next year. Posted 06.06.07 by reelz
