The Daily Heat Index: The Boys of The Night Before Bring the House Down on Lip Sync Battle
Plus, we have the trailers for The Boss and The Bronze on continuous repeat.
Here’s a daily dose of what’s heating up the internet:
Lip Sync Goes Full Christmas
You had me at ‘Seth Rogen in a Santa suit.’ As an avid fan of Spike’s runaway freshman series, Lip Sync Battle, the mere mention of bringing Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and Anthony Mackie to the stage for their holiday special brought me an unusual amount of joy. Ahead of their film’s release, the guys of The Night Before joined LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen for a round of stellar performances that will surely go down in LSB history. The standout installment was Mackie vs. Levitt in an all-out battle of spandex outfits, over-the-top choreography, and what might be a little bit of lipstick. See for yourself (and try your best not to lip sync along):
Melissa McCarthy Takes Charge
Despite the unfortunate mess that was Tammy (okay, and maybe Identity Thief), Melissa McCarthy can do no wrong. She earned herself an Oscar nom from Bridesmaids, partnered extremely well with Sandy B. in The Heat, and made it hard for us to breathe after laughing during the entire run of Spy. It comes as no surprise that the trailer for her latest film, The Boss, delivers in the best way possible. Directed her husband, Ben Falcone, McCarthy stars as a head honcho who, after being put away for insider trading, is released and attempts to get her life back together. Hilarity ensues, punches are thrown, and a lot of comparisons to Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Caroline Manzo are made. We dig it.
Go for the Gold
Melissa Rauch (better known as Bernadette from The Big Bang Theory) shows a different side of herself in a trailer that would make your grandmother blush. In The Bronze, she’s an ex-Olympic gymnast trying to rebuild her career, with just her discipline, power of will, and a no-f*cks-given attitude. On top of that, the film’s initial buzz at Sundance was for its over-the-top sex scene that will surely draw your attention. We like the new Melissa. Check the trailer out below:
