SNL Ranked: Melissa McCarthy Delivers a Hilariously Quirky Episode

Melissa McCarthy returned to Studio 8H for her fourth outing as SNL host, and while it may have made more sense for her to host closer to the April release date of her new comedy The Boss, it's difficult to complain. McCarthy teams up with her Ghostbusters co-stars Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones for a mostly great episode that really leans into the weird stuff and makes excellent use of musical guest Kanye West in an early contender for best sketch of the year. Read on for our ranking of this week's sketches from best to worst.

Disney Remade ‘Adventures in Babysitting’ While You Weren’t Looking, And There’s a Trailer

David Gordon Green already sort of remade Adventures in Babysitting with his R-rated comedy The Sitter, but if you're looking for a more family-friendly, contemporary update on the 1987 classic (why would you want this?), the Disney Channel has you covered...kind of. The company supposedly remade Adventures in Babysitting, except, not really. They just repurposed the basic concept and added some Disney stars to appeal to an entire generation that has no idea what Adventures in Babysitting is.

‘Gremlins 3’ Rejected Pitch Answers a Very Important Question About Mogwais

A new Gremlins film has been in development for several years, with a handful of different writers attached at various points. Last we heard, the new installment in the franchise will take a Jurassic World-style approach, essentially operating as a legacyquel that takes place 30 years later and maintains the canon from the previous films while introducing new characters. While we wait for more updates on Gremlins 3, two of the writers who previously developed ideas for the sequel have shared their rejected pitch, which basically sounds like Mogwais on a Plane.

‘Suicide Squad’ Promo Takes the Worst Heroes Ever to Instagram

Rather than debut a TV spot or a new teaser, Warner Bros. has unleashed its first non-trailer promo for Suicide Squad via Instagram — you know, because that’s where all the cool kids are these days, and Suicide Squad is a movie for cool kids who take 800 selfies and have a Hot Topic frequent shopper card and an ironic appreciation of Jared Leto’s Joker sporting a grill. Does David Ayer’s super villain movie have a type? Not really, but it’s fun to guess.

Wolverine Probably Won’t Be Recast in the ‘X-Men’ Universe When Hugh Jackman Leaves

Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for over 15 years. He’s appeared on screen as the iconic X-Men character in seven films, including his uncredited cameo in X-Men: First Class, and by the time The Wolverine 2 rolls around, we can round that number up to eight (and that’s not including the potential for cameos in X-Men: Apocalypse, which he’s denied, as well as Gambit). Fans have been wondering if Wolverine will be recast once Jackman exits the franchise, but according to Bryan Singer and producer Simon Kinberg, that’s not likely to happen.

The film hits theaters this summer, and while it’s not a new trailer, this teaser should hold you over until more footage properly arrives.

That ‘Labyrinth’ Remake Is Not Actually a Remake, Thank Goodness

We can all calm down because the sanctity of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth is not being disturbed as previously thought. Over the weekend, we learned that Sony had struck a deal with Jim Henson Co. for a Labyrinth reboot based on a screenplay by Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman. Perlman herself has now taken to social media to allay your fears and ensure you that no one is remaking your beloved Labyrinth and this news was all just a matter of poor timing.

Laurel and Hardy Biopic Casts John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan

John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan are two actors who are incredibly funny and just as equally capable of heart-wrenching drama, which makes them the perfect pairing for a Laurel and Hardy biopic. Reilly and Coogan will headline the upcoming film titled Stan & Ollie, a BBC Films production that centers on the final 1953 tour of the iconic comedic duo.
