Bradley Cooper Mocks Giants Fans in Eagles Video

Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field, the 4-1 Eagles play the suddenly hot 3-2 Giants in what will likely be a nerve-wracking game. But — before a stressful football game leaves Eagles fans a complete drunken mess, win or lose — please enjoy this Eagles promo video narrated by Bradley Cooper.

You’ll note this clip does not contain perhaps the greatest play in Eagles-Giants history, the DeSean Jackson walkoff punt return in 2011. Still, it’s pretty entertaining! Anything making fun of Giants fans is going to play well to a Philadelphia audience.

FIRST LOOK: American Sniper Trailer, Starring Bradley Cooper

The trailer for Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper was released. The film, based on a memoir of the same name by Chris Kyle, stars Philly’s Bradley Cooper as Kyle. It follows him from his days as a rodeo cowboy to a SEAL chief who racks up the highest number of sniper kills in U.S. American History. This is the film in which Cooper packed on 40 pounds to play the role.

The film is due out December 25th.

3 Observations About Eagles Fans (From a Non-Eagles Fan)

Eagles-fans-in-stands-940x540-jeff-fusco

Last year, while reporting on a story about football cuisine before the Eagles’ home opener, I crashed multiple tailgates all over the Linc lots, looking for fun anecdotes, quotes and stories, and maybe a couple sausages and beers. I ended up nailing down my own personal definition of Eagles fandom.

One guy in particular stands out to me. Middle-aged, successful. Intelligent and friendly. Owner of multiple businesses. Spoke eloquently about the decades he’s been coming to games with family and friends. Happy to break down a few of his “secret” tailgate recipes, the focus of my column.

Then a kid in a San Diego Chargers jersey strolled by. My interviewee’s eyes suddenly seemed to click to blood-red, like a hungry vampire in a Japanese cartoon.

How it Was Made: The Eagles’ #FlyEaglesFly Video Starring Bradley Cooper

#FlyEaglesFly

This afternoon I reached out to 160Over90, the local branding agency in charge of creating the Philadelphia Eagles #FlyEaglesFly videos. I chatted with Creative Director Brendan Quinn, who, along with a team of writers and videographers, was in charge of the concept and creation of the spot. He talked about how he got Bradley Cooper involved, how keyboardist Kamal Gray helped procure the rights to The Roots song in the background, and getting some of Philly’s rowdiest Eagles fans involved in the project.

WATCH: Bradley Cooper, John Legend and The Roots Team Up for Eagles Campaign Video

flyeaglesfly bradley cooper

The Philadelphia Eagles released the latest video in its #FlyEaglesFly campaign, a new series of ads designed to promote the local NFL team’s upcoming season.

This time around the video, called “Everything and More,” features a collaboration between Philly’s Bradley Cooper and The Roots, and Penn alum John Legend. Cooper does the voiceover, an impassioned monologue about what the Eagles mean to the City of Philadelphia: “This is more than a team. It’s a family. It’s our family. This is more than a city. It’s our home. This is more than a game. This is everything … and more,” he says.

Movie Meter: Guardians of the Galaxy Will Obliterate the Weekend Box Office—And Rightfully So

SEE IT NOW!

Guardians of the Galaxy: Consider the summer movie season saved. What sounds like an unlikely sort of superhero action flick—seriously, two of the heroes in question are a giant, walking plant, and a feisty, weapons-expert raccoon (voiced by Philly’s Bradley Cooper)—in the hands of director James Gunn becomes more fun than you might believe. It’s equal parts funny, touching, and exhilarating in a most unexpected way. Scoff if you must, but you’ll be hearing a great deal about this one in the next couple weeks. A summer blockbuster triumph. Rotten Tomatoes Score: 91%

Get On Up: The Godfather of Soul gets the full bio-pic treatment at last, but can you imagine the number of auditions they had to go through to find a suitable James Brown? In the end, director Tate Taylor went with Chadwick Boseman (fresh off his turn as Jackie Robinson in 42), who has the unenviable task of trying to bring the energy and fearsome showmanship of the hardest-working man in show business. From the sound of things, the producers have gotten a lot of things right. Expect great things from Boseman amidst an absolutely devastating soundtrack. Rotten Tomatoes Score: 80%

Code Black: You want a breathlessly interesting way to access the health care debate in this country? Ryan McGarry’s enthralling documentary about L.A. County’s fabled emergency room—one of the first in the country to utilize what would now be considered standard emergency care—follows the trials and tribulations of the dedicated doctors and interns of the hospital’s trauma bay, having to make life-saving decisions on the fly on a regular basis, even as their badly injured patients, by nature of their immediate need, bypass the existing health-care system in order to get care. Rotten Tomatoes Score: 96%

WAIT FOR DVD

Alive Inside: A documentary about the power of music to overcome mental deterioration, this Sundance audience winner from director Michael Rossato-Bennett sounds like it crams a good deal of uplift in its short-running time (the film clocks in at 75 minutes.) It follows Dan Cohen, a social worker, as he criss-crosses the country speaking the gospel of music as a healing restorer of identity, memory and self to those afflicted souls in need of some kind of cognitive therapy. Rotten Tomatoes Score: 65%

SKIP IT

Magic in the Moonlight: A colossal misfire from Woody Allen, and a crashing bore to boot. Allen has assembled yet another top-notch cast—including Colin Firth and Emma Stone—and shoots in yet another picturesque part of Western Europe (this being the South of France.) But his script is so half-finished and shoddy, the whole enterprise collapses. The story involves a magician (Firth), who loves debunking self-described soothsayers and oracles as frauds, until he meets a fetching young woman (Stone), whom, to his shock, actually seems legit. I actually feel sorry for Firth, who is given the impossible task of trying to make his boorish character seem believable; and Stone, for having to fall in love as a result. Rotten Tomatoes Score:

PHOTOS: New Jersey Woman Can’t Live Without Her Cardboard Cutout of Bradley Cooper

New Jersey mother Danielle Davies is so crazy about her former schoolmate Bradley Cooper that she lugs a cardboard cutout with her wherever she goes. Or at least that’s how it seems in her Instagram account, which shows her hanging out with Cardboard Cooper at the beach, in the kitchen, and even buying a bag of litter at the pet store. In fact, just today she posted to photos of her and Cooper at the Philadelphia Museum of Art—running up the steps and posing with the Rocky statue.

Crazy-pants? Or just plain hilarious? Check out some of her photos below.
