A leaked clip from Movie 43 plus news on Dumb and Dumber To
MOVIE 43, which looks like a funny diversion, is apparently the latest movie to suffer the January Dumps. No advance screenings have been advertised for critics, which never bodes well for a studio picture. MOVIE 43 has been pieced together for years so the directors and actors could squeeze filming in between their major projects. How else would a small budget film get Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Naomi Watts, Emma Stone, Terrence Howard, Richard Gere, and Kate Winslet in the same movie?
This new clip is apparently "leaked" online but it looks like it may be a studio plant to try and hype the film. The clip comes from the Terrence Howard segment "Victory's Glory" about an all Black basketball team trying to compete against an all White squad. What follows is a funny motivational speech involving dick size.
Sketch movies have never been big box office draws, especially in today's age when short videos featuring celebrities like this make their way to YouTube and Funny or Die every day.
Peter Farrelly, one of the many MOVIE 43 directors, had an interview with Entertainment Weekly about the film and shed some status on the long in development DUMB AND DUMBER sequel. Here is what he had to say.
"It’s not a firm greenlight yet because there are still negotiations happening, but that’s what we’d like to do next. We have a script that’s really, really fun. If I told the plot to you, you’d say, “That’s a piece of s—.” But if I had told you the first one—”Well, it’s about two guys and they find a briefcase and they bring it to Aspen to meet a chick”—you’d be like, “You’re f—ing with me. That’s not a movie!” It’s a character thing, and it’s all about the little things. Because it’s been so hard to get this thing made for whatever reason—it’s baffling but whatever—we’ve had time to just keep plugging, keep plugging, keep plugging. And the script is really fun."
