Will 2013 finally be the year that Joss Whedon’s legion of fans get to sing along with the long-awaited sequel to his 2008 Internet sensation Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog starring Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day and Nathan Fillion? The geek pop polymath who gave us Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and a surprisingly successful indie about a band of superheroes no one had ever heard of called The Avengers made no promises when Entertainment Weekly caught up with him late last year, but he did say that putting a crooning Doogie back in a lab coat is on his “to do” list. “We really want to shoot it next year. We feel strong about the idea and we have a bunch of stuff written,” said Whedon, who is currently directing the pilot episode of Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D. series while also writing the script for the sequel to The Avengers, plus prepping the release plan for his film adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, due in theaters this summer. In between: The occasional napping.

It’s far too early to start thinking about the Christmas season, but since debauchery, gross-out gags, and a very naughty Neil Patrick Harris are something we can celebrate year-round, the trailer for A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas feels right on time. The third installment of the stoner comedy finds the herb-friendly pair (John Cho, Kal Penn) getting in the holiday spirit by shooting Santa, punching priests, and inadvertently giving precocious youngsters “the munchies.” All in 3-D, no less! Hey, no one ever said these two would be on the nice list.
And speaking of, revel in the fun of watching Neil Patrick Harris once again playing a version of himself that would make even Barney Stinson want to wash away his sins (Nice to know that no matter what NPH does, he would get in to heaven, isn’t it?!) Check out the full, fairly NSFW trailer, which includes egregious uses for 3-D effects, an NPH musical number, and homages to movies and specials of Christmas past (check out the claymation!) Though, fair warning, you may never think of that famous scene from A Christmas Story quite the same way again. READ FULL STORY »
