'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' Trailer Is The Funniest Thing On LouNet

"Four years ago, these best friends discovered a hot-tub time machine." So says the narrator at the start of the "Hot Tub Time Machine 2" red-band trailer, which Paramount debuted at Comic-Con on Thursday. No John Cusack this time around -- Adam Scott, briefly glimpsed here, seems to have taken his slot -- but that just means more laughs for Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson and Clark Duke. This NSFW trailer is a riot. People who like funny things should watch it below. "Hot Tub Time Machine 2" comes out on Christmas Day.

Remembering My Friend, Elaine Stritch

I met Elaine Stritch about 70 years ago. She was 19. We had gotten roles in the new Broadway production Woman Bites Dog; she played my girlfriend. During rehearsals I was shocked when they fired her. She was very talented and I liked her. Even then, she had a unique personality and that distinctive voice which she used all through her career. She became a big stage star. Then, as she got older she became a one-person performer who won a Tony Award, was the star of a documentary about her life and up until recently performed in cabarets. She was fantastic and larger than life. I always saw her when I went to New York. She lived in style at the Carlyle Hotel.

Then I got a note from her. She was retiring, she said, after so many years as an entertainer, to be near her family in Michigan. I wrote back to tell her that when I went east again I would stop in Michigan and we could lie to each other about how great we are. I didn't get there, but I did call her one Sunday last year to check in. She was very excited and we had fun talking about old times.

Last week, she died. Her death was reported on the front page of The New York Times. Inside she got an entire page with photographs of her in action. They dimmed the lights on all of the Broadway theatres --an honor reserved only for the great ones.

Why do I tell you all this? It is the curse of longevity. You lose so many of your friends. Of course you are left with pleasant memories, but that's not enough. I am beginning to number all the friends I have lost -- Jack Valenti, Frank Sinatra, Ray Stark, Tony Curtis, Burt Lancaster, Laurence Olivier.

Elaine Stritch was the latest. She had such a wonderful sense of humor. I will always remember the imitation she did of me from the stage -- she used all her teeth. The audience loved that. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to laugh with her one more time.

Which is an important lesson for me, even at the age of 97. Keep in touch with those you care about, no matter how much distance and time separates you. Share a laugh. Share a heartbreak. Share life while you can.

What impressed me most about Elaine Stritch, my friend, was how she handled the sad moments in her life. Now, I have to handle a sad moment alone -- Elaine is gone.

See Another Photo Of Ben Affleck In 'Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice'

To celebrate the start of San Diego Comic-Con as well as the 75th anniversary of Batman, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" director Zack Snyder released a new photo of Ben Affleck in costume as the Caped Crusader. This is what that photo looks like:

As Variety notes, the new Batman photo is part of a larger mosaic of pictures that DC Comics put together for Comic-Con. "The filmmakers wanted to include this new cinematic version of the Dark Knight in the anniversary mosaic so it could be discovered by fans!" read a blog post on DCComics.com. "The cast and crew behind 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' are excited to be a part of the 75th celebration!"

Warner Bros. will release "Batman v Superman" on May 6, 2016. The film is not scheduled to appear at Comic-Con during the Warner Bros. panel on Saturday, but don't be surprised if it winds up being an unexpected inclusion in the festivities.
