This week on The Flickcast Chris and Matt are back after not doing a show last week. Fortunately, the boys are in good spirits and ready for action diving into a bunch of new topics for this week’s show.
Some of these topics include Scott Pilgrim and its box office performance, XXX parodies of mainstream film and television programs, X-Men First Class casting news, Fantastic Four casting news, the films of Edgar Wright and Piranha 3D and its sequel. In addition, the boys discussed the latest Machete clips, the new Black Swan trailer, the fake Comic-Con Captain America trailer and the brand new trailer for The Walking Dead.
In addition, Matt and Chris made some new picks this week including Matt’s pick of Operation: Endgame, featuring Rob Corddry, and Chris’ pick of the “bloody good time” film Piranha 3D.

All week long, we’ve been bringing you increasingly interesting videos and interviews with some of the cast of Adult Swim’s Children’s Hospital. Today, we’re bringing you the mother load, as we chat with the mastermind behind it all: Rob Corddry.
Most people know Rob from his work on The Daily Show, if not one of this year’s funnier films, Hot Tub Time Machine. We discussed the possibility of a sequel to this year’s popular comedy, and what it would take to get him back in the same role.
Not only did Corddry create, write, and direct all of Children’s Hospital, but he also plays the character Blake Downs, a direct blow to Robin William’s character in Patch Adams. We also chatted with him about his blatant disregard for Grey’s Anatomy when making his show, which can be seen as an obvious parody of the ABC hit.
Check out our full interview with Corddry after the jump and be sure to catch the all-new season of Children’s Hospital this Sunday, August 22nd, at 10:30PM on Adult Swim.

Being in the movie game, there is very little that surprises us anymore. We hear about a sequel to Avatar or a reboot of Spider-Man and it barely garners a raised eyebrow. On the opposite of that, sometimes a movie comes along completely out of left field. That movie is called Operation: Endgame and we can’t wait to see it.
Originally titled Rogues Gallery, the film is an action comedy about two rival spy factions that face off in an epic spy game. Are you ready for the exciting part? The cast consists of the following names: Rob Corddry, Zach Galifiniakis, Odette Yustman (Cloverfield), Bob Odenkirk, Jeffrey Tambor, Maggie Q, Adam Scott (Party Down), Emilie de Ravin, and Ving Rhames. Think of it as a live action version of FX’s Archer.
The most shocking part? You won’t be rushing to the theaters to see this film. It’s actually going straight to Blu-ray and DVD on July 27th. That’s right, possibly one of the most exciting films we’ve heard about in a while isn’t even getting a theatrical release.
Check out the first red band trailer (thanks to Trailer Addict) for the film after the jump, and you’ll know what we’re talking about. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on any and all news about this upcoming action comedy.
