This Friends Reunion Trailer Might Not Be Real, but It Is in Our Hearts

At this point, a Friends reboot is never going to happen. In the decade since the seminal show ended, most of the cast members have spoken against the idea of a scripted reunion series or movie. Even so, dedicated Friends fans haven't stopped asking for it. In case it's any consolation, one viral YouTube video imagines what a Friends reunion movie might look like, and it's almost too much to handle. Smasher - a movie, TV, and gaming trailer channel - stitched together a fake trailer using clips from the cast's post-Friends projects, like Cougar Town and Episodes. Though the trailer is a little rough around the edges at times, it's also not entirely unbelievable. Monica and Chandler are divorcing, Phoebe is now a doctor, and Joey is still single but winning a Golden Globe! Ok - so maybe it is a little implausible, but just go with it.

Nope, the Trailer for the 'Desperately Requested Friends Reunion Movie' Isn't Real
Sorry Friends fans — they’ll always be there for you in reruns, but a reunion movie isn’t happening.

On Jan. 12, a conceptual “Friends: The Movie” trailer — which featured snippets of the original cast members in what appeared to be a reunion film — was uploaded to YouTube, and it has since gone viral, racking up more than 4 million views in 10 days.

Although fans of the 10-season comedy series have been hopeful the cast would reunite for a film, it isn’t happening — at least for now.

The nearly three-minute teaser trailer mashed together clips of the cast — Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox,

Alexander Skarsgard and Kenneth From 30 Rock Are the Unlikely BFFs We Didn't Know We Needed
On Sunday night, Alexander Skarsgard took home his first-ever SAG Award thanks to his performance as the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad Perry Wright on Big Little Lies. He had the support of his castmates - his onscreen wife, Nicole Kidman, also won her first SAG Award - as well as his date, longtime Bff Jack McBrayer. Jack, who is best known for playing the role of NBC page Kenneth Parcell on 30 Rock, couldn't have been more excited for his friend when Alexander's name was called in the outstanding performance by a male actor in a TV movie or miniseries category, and the two posed for tons of bromantic photos during the show and at an afterparty.

Sorry, but the Friends Movie Trailer Is a Hoax

Sorry, but the Friends Movie Trailer Is a Hoax
Unfortunately, Friends is not headed to the big screen. Over the weekend, a trailer featuring Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer went viral on social media, leading some fans to mistakenly believe that the actors were returning for a Friends movie. The fan-made video, published Jan. 12, racked up nearly 4 million views and renewed interest in a possible reunion. Thanks to some clever editing, it appeared as if Aniston's Rachel Green, Cox's Monica Geller-Bing, Kudrow's Phoebe Buffay, LeBlanc's Joey Tribbiani, Perry's Chandler Bing and Schwimmer's Ross Geller were back in each other's lives after going their separate ways in the NBC...

They’re Just Friends (and Maybe Also Lovers) in Friends Pitch Meeting

Screen Rant reveals what must have happened during NBC’s early ’90s pitch meeting in which all the most iconic aspects of F.R.I.E.N.D.S came to be. NBC revolutionized the Thursday primetime line-up. Thursday was a death sentence until Friends came along, and it became Must See TV. Populated with a bunch of relatively unknown actors (Courteney Cox was the most famous at the time but she pretty much only had Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and that one Bruce Springsteen video going for her), the sitcom would go on to be one of the most influential series in television history. And those fledgling actors would eventually become major Hollywood players pulling in a whopping million dollars per episode.

‘Grace and Frankie’ Review: A Strong and Surprising Season 4 Dares to Face Death — and Gives It the Finger

‘Grace and Frankie’ Review: A Strong and Surprising Season 4 Dares to Face Death — and Gives It the Finger
When does a funny story become sad? Typically in television, this kind of question is framed around arrested development: A grown man is still acting like he’s in college, and certain events force him to look himself in the mirror and say, “Getting that drunk and acting that dumb isn’t funny anymore. It’s sad.”

But what if it’s not arrested development? What if it’s unstoppable regression? Continuing its fearless quest to address the anxieties associated with aging, “Grace and Frankie” dares to ask if its characters’ wild misadventures aren’t actually funny anymore. Maybe they’re scary. Maybe these two best friends are losing control of their minds, bodies, and lives. Maybe they don’t even know it’s happening, as it’s happening. Maybe they need help.

Don’t knock Friends. It’s still relevant, and progressive too | Sarah Gosling

The show addressed modern masculinity and women’s empowerment. If that’s a problem today, Tory MP Kemi Badenoch is right to call young people puritanical

Not many things grow better with age: cheese, wine and George Clooney spring to mind. One thing particularly unable to cope with the ravages of time, though, is the situation comedy. The whole point of a sitcom is to take a moment in time and derive from that a whole heap of canned guffaws. A Guardian article once laid waste to a collection of classics: The Office was dismissed as “knowing, ironic idiocy”; The Likely Lads was called out for having an “unreconstructed racist, homophobic misogynist” as a lead character.

Sundance 2018 Deals: The Complete List of Festival Purchases So Far

Sundance 2018 Deals: The Complete List of Festival Purchases So Far
The 10-day-long Sundance Film Festival — the first major fest on every cinephile’s calendar — begins this afternoon in the Utah mountains. Last year’s slate produced current Oscar hopefuls “Call Me by Your Name,” “Get Out,” “Mudbound,” and “The Big Sick,” the latter being two of the biggest buys witnessed at the festival, garnering a respective $12.5 million from Netflix and $12 million from Amazon Studios.

Distributors are descending on Park City, Salt Lake City, and Sundance in search of their successors, hoping not to repeat last year’s blunder by Fox Searchlight, which paid $9.5 million for “Patti Cake$,” a film that reaped only $800,000 domestically.

Here’s our constantly-updated compendium of every 2018 Sundance acquisition.

Here's Why Jennifer Aniston Pulled Carol Burnett's Ear

Here's Why Jennifer Aniston Pulled Carol Burnett's Ear
via Giphy To present the best actress TV awards for both comedy/musical and drama, Friends star and America's sweetheart Jennifer Aniston took the stage with TV legend Carol Burnett. Their "bit" was that Jennifer was living out a lifelong dream by sharing a stage with her idol, while Carol mistook Jennifer for Will & Grace star Debra Messing. While that second part is definitely a shtick for the sake of comedy, the first part probably is not. Jennifer's delight at being next to Carol seemed genuine, especially when she asked Burnett if she could pull the legendary comedian's ear and Carol, showing that she hasn't missed a step even at age 84, dryly replied, "If you must."

Watch How Different Joey Tribbiani is in Season 1 of Friends

In season one of Friends Joey Tribbiani was a whole lot different than he was as the series progresed. For one thing he was a total hound dog, and wasn’t afraid to just go after any woman he was attracted to. He was also kind of an idiot, but thankfully throughout the duration of the show he developed along with the others. In truth he came in more as he was when he guest-starred on Married With Children as Vinnie, a monumental moron that had the morals of an alley cat and the libido of a teenager. That’s what made
