Watch as Weird Al Sings A Song About Last Night’s Debate: America Is Doomed

‘Weird Al’ Yankovic already has a song about last night’s 2020 Election Debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden. Yankovic teamed up with the Gregory Brothers to pen the song, which is called “America Is Doomed, The Musical.” The debate has been on the minds of nearly everybody who tuned last night, which is evident if you spend more than 10 seconds on social media. CNN’s Jake Tapper called it, “a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck.” While Tapper’s description seems a little over the top, many people from both sides of the aisle are agreeing with it.

As it turns out, Weird Al Yankovic was more than a little freaked out by the first 2020 Presidential Debate. Yankovic begins the video by screaming into the camera, before being asked to something a little more “dignified.” From there, it’s classic Weird Al, though it’s a little darker than some of his older material because he’s taking on current events. Regardless, “America Is Doomed, The Musical,” is a catchy song that will more than likely find a lot of people humming along.

What sets “America Is Doomed, The Musical” apart from older Weird Al Yankovic material is the fact that he and the Gregory Brothers implemented parts of last night’s debate into the song. Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden can be heard singing about the public health crisis in one particular verse, while Yankovic takes on the role of moderator between the two presidential hopefuls. They even get into the economy, and from there, things start to spiral out of control, just like they did in real-time last night.

Weird Al Yankovic and the Gregory Brothers aren’t the only ones flipping out over the first 2020 Presidential Debate. Mark Hamill went to Twitter last night to say, “That debate was the worst thing I’ve ever seen & I was in The Star Wars Holiday Special. Comedian Patton Oswalt came on and suggested that American people bring in John Wick to moderate the next debate, while screenwriter Jeremy Slater said, “That was the worst thing I’ve ever seen, and I wrote Fantastic Four,” after watching last night’s debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

There are two more 2020 Presidential Debates scheduled to lead up to the election, which takes place on November 3rd. Next week will see Vice President Mike Pence go up against Kamala Harris, with the presidential debates starting up again the week after that. It’s unclear if Weird Al Yankovic and the Gregory Brothers will be writing songs for each of the debates, but it would be nice if they did for everybody’s sanity at the moment. The New York Times were the first to host the video for “America Is Doomed, The Musical,” but you can check it out above.

Adam Sandler Will Save Halloween – /Film

hubie halloween trailer new

During the last Oscar race, Adam Sandler said that if the Academy failed to give him a nomination for Uncut Gems he would make the worst movie possible as revenge. Anyway, here’s a new trailer for Hubie Halloween! The new Netflix movie has the Sandman adopting yet another weird voice as he tries to protect a small town from danger on Halloween. It looks very, very stupid, and I will probably watch the entire thing.

Hubie Halloween Trailer

Even though Adam Sandler makes a lot of bad movies it’s hard not to like the guy. By all accounts, he’s very nice, and he always seems to be having fun even if the movie he’s making is a total piece of crap. And there’s just something about Sandler and his shenanigans audiences can’t resist, with the films he’s made earning over $2 billion at the box office. Netflix wanted a piece of that action and threw $250 million at Sandler for a deal to make movies – a deal that extended earlier this year, with Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer saying: “I could not be more excited to extend our partnership with Adam and the Happy Madison team and deliver more laughs around the world.”

Which brings us to Hubie Halloween, which looks really bad and also kind of fun. I’m getting Ernest Scared Stupid vibes off this thing, and Ernest Scared Stupid is another movie that’s really bad but also kind of fun.

In Hubie Halloween, “Hubie Dubois (Adam Sandler) thanklessly spends every Halloween making sure the residents of his hometown, Salem, celebrate safely and play by the rules. But this year, an escaped criminal and a mysterious new neighbor have Hubie on high alert. When people start disappearing, it’s up to Hubie to convince the police (Kevin James, Kenan Thompson) and townsfolk that the monsters are real, and only he can stop them.”

Here’s the full cast: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Julie Bowen, Ray Liotta, Rob Schneider, June Squibb, Kenan Thompson, Shaquille O’Neal, Michael Chiklis, Tim Meadows, Karan Brar, George Wallace, Noah Schnapp, Paris Berelc, China Anne McClain, with Steve Buscemi and Maya Rudolph – and based on this trailer, Steve Buscemi turns into a monster at some point. How can you resist that?

Hubie Halloween was directed by Steven Brill and written by Tim Herlihy and Adam Sandler. Look for Hubie Halloween on Netflix on October 7. In addition to the new trailer there’s also a new poster, which you can see below.

Notebook Reviews: THE FAN – Movies In Focus

Notebook Reviews: THE FAN – Movies In Focus

Tony Scott – 1996

The Fan is a pretty solid thriller from master action director Tony Scott. The film looks fantastic with its orange filters and slow motion. Robert DeNiro is  good as the deranged fan but Wesley Snipes appears to be a little out of his depth as the baseball player he’s obsessed with. As for John Leguizamo – we won’t mention that guy.

Ellen Barkin is under-used and her interesting role could have been beefed-up somewhat. Overall, The Fan is a little contrived and the ending is rushed but it’s slick and entertaining all the same.

Idris Elba, Beast

If you’ve ever wanted to see Idris Elba take on a lion, you’re in luck. THR has reported that the actor is slated to star in BEAST, a survival thriller that Baltasar Kormakur will direct for Universal Pictures. Plot details are being kept under wraps at this stage, but BEAST has been described as being in the same vein as THE SHALLOWS, which starred Blake Lively as a surfer being stalked by a shark. This time around, the predatory creature will be a lion.

Based on an original idea by Jaime Primak-Sullivan, BEAST has been scripted by Ryan Engle, who penned NON-STOP, THE COMMUTER, and RAMPAGE. Director Baltasar Kormakur certainly isn’t a stranger to the survival thriller genre as he’s previously helmed EVEREST and ADRIFT. As for Idris Elba, the actor recently starred in FAST & FURIOUS PRESENTS: HOBBS AND SHAW, CATS, and CONCRETE COWBOY, the latter of which had its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month. You can check out a review of the film from our own Chris Bumbray right here. Elba is next slated to star in James Gunn‘s THE SUICIDE SQUAD as Robert DuBois/Bloodsport, a  convicted felon who is serving time in prison for shooting Superman with a bullet made of Kryptonite. THE SUICIDE SQUAD is slated for an August 6, 2021 release.

Idris Elba Will Fight a Killer Lion in Survival Thriller Beast


Golden Globe winner Idris Elba is set to star in Universal’s survival thriller Beast, which will find him running from a killer lion.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news, reporting that Baltasar Kormakur (Everest) will direct from a script by Ryan Engle (Rampage) that was based on an original idea by Jaime Primak-Sullivan, who will serve as an executive producer on the project.

Will Packer and James Lopez will produce via Packer’s eponymous company, while Kormakur will produce through his RVK Studios. Universal executives Matt Reilly and Tony Ducret will oversee the project, which doubles as a reunion between Packer, Lopez, Engle and Primak-Sullivan, who previously worked together on the 2018 Gabrielle Union thriller Breaking In.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but Beast is described as a survival thriller in the vein of The Shallows and Crawl, which found Blake Lively and Kaya Scodelario fending off a clever shark and a congregation of alligators. Elba won’t be trapped in dangerous waters, however, as he’ll be battling a hungry lion, aka, the king of the jungle.

Kormakur is a veteran Icelandic filmmaker who Universal has come to trust, as he previously directed the Mark Wahlberg movies Contraband and 2 Guns as well as the star-studded survival thriller Everest for the studio. He most recently directed the Shailene WoodleySam Claflin drama Adrift. As for Engle, his screenwriting credits include the Liam Neeson action movies Non-Stop and The Commuter.

Elba recently starred in Universal’s Fast and Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw, and he’ll soon be seen as Bloodshot in James Gunn‘s DC movie The Suicide Squad, as well as the indie drama Concrete Cowboy. Elba is also slated to star opposite Tilda Swinton in George Miller‘s ambitious fantasy romance Three Thousand Years of Longing. He also recently signed on to star in a romantic spy thriller for Apple, and you can click here to read more about that project.
