The gang hits the slopes in rad ’80s-style trailer for Always Sunny season 11

A trailer for season 11 of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia‘s eleventh season has been released by FXX in the form of a faux-VHS teaser which features the gang spoofing the glories 1980s ski flicks.

With tight-ski outfits, Danny DeVito as a hot-shot corporate developer, and hot tub scenes galore, the teaser looks remarkably close to the real thing — right down to the neon title card. And if you look closely, you can even catch a cameo by ’80s comic actor Dean Cameron, best known for his role as “Chainsaw” in 1987’s Summer School and, of course, 1990’s Ski School.

Longtime fans of the series are hoping that the teaser is indicative of a larger episode, but given the fact that the show itself is set in present day, it’s hard to tell yet whether or not the gang will make the trip back in time for a special episode. That said, if the the outrageous nature of It’s Always Sunny plots have proved anything, it’s that the show’s writers can basically do whatever they want and get away with it.

The comedy series, which started in 2005, centers on a group of friends who own a bar in Philadelphia, with hilarious out-of-nowhere plots and oddball characters creating a seemingly endless well of creative opportunities for the show’s writers. That’s part of the reason why the series has stayed fresh for so long, with longtime fans returning season after season to see what the cast will be up to next.

Created by Rob McElhenney (who also plays Mac in the show), the show was originally developed up as a short film which he later pitched to FX as a TV series. The network ordered a first season, and after a slow start, the show has now lasted for 114 episodes, with the last two appearing on the new FXX station.

After so many episodes, maybe a ski special wouldn’t be a bad idea. But even if they don’t go that far, at least the new trailer is hilarious.

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia returns to the network with new episodes in January of next year.

Is the 2023 live-action The Little Mermaid remake streaming?
Halle Bailey in The Little Mermaid.

In 1989, The Little Mermaid marked the beginning of the Disney Renaissance, which revitalized the company's animation division and eventually led to Disney's emergence as the biggest studio in Hollywood. During the intervening decades, Disney has made a habit out of remaking its animated classics in live-action. Some are more successful than others, but The Little Mermaid has a special place in our hearts thanks to the timeless music and songs of Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman.

For the remake, Hamilton star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda joined Menken for some new songs and a few revamped numbers. Additionally, singer and actress Halle Bailey stepped into the title role of Ariel, who was voiced by Jodi Benson in the original film. Rounding out the cast of the remake are Jonah Hauer-King, Daveed Diggs, Renfield's Awkwafina, Jacob Tremblay, Noma Dumezweni, Art Malik, Javier Bardem, and Melissa McCarthy.

7 best Spider-Man characters who’ve never been on the big screen
Black Cat sits on a chair in a Marvel comic book.

Since making his debut in 1962, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko’s Spider-Man has remained one of the world’s most popular and prolific superheroes, with the character often featured in multiple monthly comic titles and animated series at the same time. Maintaining that kind of cultural footprint is only possible with the help of an absolutely massive supporting cast of friends, allies, and enemies.
It’s a testament to the depth of Team Spider-Man’s bench that there have been 10 feature films starring the character and there are still a few major names who are waiting to make their big-screen debut. Whether they’re too new to have been included in the earliest Spider-Man movies or too important to be lumped in with a dozen other characters in a crossover film, each of these seven Spidey stalwarts is bound to get their day in the spotlight, some sooner than others.
