Watch Rick Astley and Foo Fighters Mashup ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ and ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ (Video)

Rickrolling – the bait and switch meme in which you prank someone with an unexpected appearance by the 1987 Rick Astley smash hit “Never Gonna Give You Up” – might be nearly 10 years old, but it is far from dead. And Foo Fighters may have just perfected it. At this year’s Summer Sonic music festival in Japan, The Dave Grohl-fronted Rock Band invited to the stage the man himself, Rick Astley, who joined them in a rendition of “Never Gonna Give You Up.” And even better, they did it in the style of the Nirvana classic “Smells Like Teen »

A version of this story first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine. When it comes to giving out awards to people for giving out awards to other people, the Emmys have always loved the Oscars.

Meanwhile — and we know that this might be beside the point, but we’ll mention it anyway — the “And. »

Another Problem for HBO’s ‘Confederate': It’s Been Done

1 hour ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

HBO’s upcoming series “Confederate,” about an America in which the South won the Civil War, has battled criticism almost since the moment the creators of “Game of Thrones” announced it as their next project for the network. But one obstacle has gone largely unnoticed: It’s been done. The excellent 2004 indie drama “C.S.A.: Confederate States of America” presents itself as an alternate-reality documentary that recounts how the Union lost and white supremacists took over the United States. It has a depressing punchline: Our country might not be all that different than it is now. (You can watch it on Hulu, »

‘Do It Like an Hombre’: Mexico’s Highest-Grossing Local Film of the Year

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Some new Mexican box office history has been made as the comedy “Do it Like an Hombre” followed its 68.7 million Mexican pesos ($3.89 million) opening weekend with a two weekend total of $130.3 million pesos ($7.4 million), giving it the highest Mexican movie box office total of 2017, according to comScore.

In its first weekend, including a Thursday first-day bow, the film was the country’s second-highest Mexican release ever after the 2013 smash-hit “Instructions Not Included,” which holds the top spot, though off a Thursday rather than Friday opening. 2016’s “Que Culpe Tiene el Nino”? earned a three-day 65.6 million pesos ($3.7 million), according to comScore.

The recent success of local hits in Mexico has helped in recent years to justify a massive growth in the number of theaters across the country. It may also suggest a shift away from the near absolute choke-hold that Hollywood blockbusters, especially animated movies, have held on the region’s box offices for years. At »

Why ‘Wolf Warriors 2’ Had a Record-Setting Roar in China

1 hour ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

With $775 million and counting as of Aug. 21, director and star Wu Jing’s “Wolf Warriors 2” has easily become China’s highest-grossing movie ever, thanks to a favorable schedule, a massive audience salivating for something worth going to the theater for — and a distinctly Chinese approach to a shoot-‘em-up epic. The film, which stars Wu as Leng Feng, a special-ops soldier who attempts to rescue trapped Chinese civilians from the midst of an African civil war, passed Stephen Chow’s “The Mermaid,” which was the first homegrown Chinese film to break the $500 million mark at the country’s box office. »
