As everyone is aware by now we lost both Michael Jackson and Billy Mays within days of one another this past week. The wake of this double tragedy has pointed to corellations between the two men that we would not have noticed otherwise. Take a look, if you will, at the side-by-side similarities below and let us know whether these are mere coincidence or if Michael Jackson and Billy Mays are intertwined on a cosmic level.
Former G-Unit rapper The Game may be ready to join the A-Team according to this article from ComingSoon. The Joe Carnahan-directed reboot has yet to find it's B.A. Baracus with a number of names having been thrown into the ring so far. Common, Ice Cube, and "Rampage" Jackson have all come up in casting discussions. The Game is my favorite of these options. I feel like he could really bring to the screen the intimidating please-don't-kill-me vibe that this role needs (a lot more than Common anyway).But let's face the fact that no one will be able to fill Mr. T's shoes. Therefore they should just cast the man himself. He'd be willing to do it. Heck, he was willing to be in this picture.We're so happy together, you guys!Hate it or love it. It's the morning news…These pictures are Kick Ass. (/Film)There's a guy named Nimrod Antal. Also, he's directing the Predator reboot.

In honor of Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs opening this weekend, we decided to feature a picture gallery of sexy cavewomen wearing skimpy loincloths. You might interject, "ScreenJunkies, despite what the Flinstones depicts, humans weren't around during the time of the dinosaurs!" to which we'd respond – and haughtily, we might add – "Would you rather see a gallery of wooly mammoth ass?" Above: Queen Latifah telling us to "Talk to the trunk."If you answered "yes" then you're into Furries and should be reading Holy Taco. If you answered "no" then get get ready for some B.C. T&A.
This one's kind of out of left field but there are rumors over at Daily Stab that Hollywood is interested in bringing the life of Billy Mays to the big screen. You can and should take this one with a grain of salt. I'm taking it with an entire shaker. Steve Carell is being looked at to play the lead with Owen Wilson in consideration for the role of his best friend, Anthony Sullivan. No word yet on who is playing the Sham Wow Guy but my money's on Danny Glover. That and Nelson Mandela are the roles he was born to play.Take a gander at these news links…Final season of Lost will be longer than originally planned. (THR)The Life and Death of Jeff Goldblum.

WATCHMEN Blu-Ray Clip in MAXIMUM MOVIE MODE – Watch more Funny Videos Above is a clip of the "Maximum Movie Mode" way of watching Watchmen when it comes to Blu-Ray on July 21st. As long as you're a Zach Snyder enthusiast, it looks like a pretty kickass feature, as the director literally gives a direct presentation during the film. Snyder's sorta like Al Gore if he worked out and used a camera to no-touch fondle Malin Akerman. Of course, what Warner Bros. home video isn't admitting is that, while this technology has certainly improved… it wasn't the first time Maximum Movie Mode was used. Nay, atribute that to R. Kelly's über-meta commentary for his piece de resistance, "Trapped in the Closet." "See, now I'm in the closet," says R. Kelly seated on the couch watching the picture in picture of R. Kelly in the film singing, "I'm trapped in the closet." Groove to it after the jump:

Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) in this new International trailer for QT's Inglourious Basterds. International, you say? Why, yes. And that means subtitles and title cards in other languages. Here's what the title cards say: There was a time… a France occupied by the Nazis… A New Film By Quentin Tarantino… If you look for heroes… You are going to find them… Those twelve years of French I took are finally paying off. *smiles wryly, adjusts cravate, then swishes cognac snifter while flipping on Maury Povich* Here are Today's Top Links IN ENGLISH, PEOPLE!!!

Television's ultimate pitchman has passed away. Billy Mays, the charismatic and clamorous infomercial host died in his sleep after sustaining a head injury during a rough plane landing this past weekend. The very likeable Mays is currently co-starring with Anthony Sullivan on the Discovery Channel show Pitchmen. This really is such a shame. It's always sad to see someone cut down while their star is on the rise. His contributions to the tapestry of television will be sorely missed.

ARMAGEDDON FTW! – Watch more Funny Videos It was a wild ride full of BANGs, POPs, BOOMs, KAPOWs, and several WHOOSHes, but once all the proverbial dust settled the asteroid with a mission to send earth back to the dark ages took the prize. Sometimes it’s the movies with the most ridiculous plots that have the best pyrotechnics. Keep that in mind all you young filmmakers as your professors drill the importance of story into your heads.

This week, we've covered the Transformers from about every possible angle – except their nether regions, because Bay has that covered. But there's another film starting today that deserves far more asses in seats than Bay's bombastic sequel. I'm talking about THE HURT LOCKER, which – if you couldn't tell from the pull quote above – Screenjunkies thinks is just about the tensest movie that's come out since NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN.
Welcome to the final day of BAYWATCH '09. To recap, we've revisited Bay's Best Music Videos, Pitted Bay's Explosions against one another in the Bracket of Boom, ogled his "Baybes" and collected emails from his personal account. For the last day, we're getting inside the man's head. Strap on your safety goggles and flak jackets. By Ian Sobel
As evidenced by the lazily-Photoshopped image above, The King of Pop is no longer with us. Expect this news to take over the airwaves for the next few days as the networks scramble to bring their tributes to the screen. Despite his controversial life and the fact that he often dressed like a Batman villian, we here at Screen Junkies would like to seperate the art from the artist. His talents and legend cannot be denied and will live on through his amazing music.We wanted to play this post out with Thriller, his most cinematic and memorable video, but the embedding is disabled by request.

This just in. Actress Farrah Fawcett, "It" Girl of the 1970s and original "Charlie's Angels" star, has passed away at the age of 62 after a losing battle with cancer. She succumbed at 9:28am PST this morning in Santa Monica. Screen Junkies expresses our sincerest condolences to Fawcett's friends and family. She will be missed. Check out some classic clips of Farrah long before her bout with the Big C… all after the jump.
Well lookee what we got here, boys! Last round, the asteroid rocked the The Rock's missile and the Giant F**king Robot 'splodin' the bus beat out the combustible mansion. Even Michael Bay, with his infinite wisdom and soothsaying powers, told us in a conversation that didn’t really happen that he was literally BLOWN AWAY by the results. Now we're down to the Big Boom and the tension is so palpable you could masticate it like a big ol' bag of Big League Chew. THE FINAL MATCHUP
It's Day 4 of BAYWATCH '09. Transformers Revenge of the Fallen has opened to huge numbers as expected, and we've given you the Michael Bay goods in the form of a Music Video Retrospective, an Explosions Tourney pitting the best Bay BOOMs against each other, and a giant gallery of Michael Bay's Babes. Now it's time for a look at the more personal, introspective side of the man…
Looks like reports of Harvey Weinstein demanding Quentin Tarantino cut 40 minutes out of Inglorious Basterds were premature. GQ caught up with Harvey at a cocaine buffet and he had this to say:"Come on, there's sh*t on that cutting-room floor that'll blow your brains out. I was telling Quentin the opposite—'You should put that sh*t back in the movie… I'm praying he puts that sh*t back in, ‘cause it's un-f*cking-believably great."So, there you have it. The sh*t stays in the picture.Check this other sh*t out!Watchmen Director's Cut is headed to select theaters. (Collider)The Oscars are bigger and longer now too.

THE BOX Trailer – Watch more Funny Videos Above is the new trailer for the not-so-new-but-unreleased The Box, starring Cameron Diaz, James Marsden as a young, innocent couple from The South and Frank Langella as a devilish man who presents the couple with a big red button that, when pressed, kills a random stranger. Why, pray tell, would one want to push a button that kills someone? Well because the pusher is rewarded with an attaché case full of money.

By Spencer Vickers I am 80% convinced that Michael Bay did not give a sweet sh*t about the first hour and twenty minutes of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. What occupies that part of the highly anticipated summer flick is about as dumbed down as you would expect from a film that is brought to you by a toy company (I would like to point out that my previous comment was by no means meant as an attack on Hasbro, for without them my childhood would have been severely depressing). At points the film even borders on offensive (and not the good kind of offensive).

All this week, BAYWATCH '09 has given you the goods on all things that go BOOM. Monday was the 10 Best Michael Bay-directed Music Videos… Tuesday was the first ever Michael Bay Explosion Tournament… Well, it wouldn't be a proper Bay-themed week without cleavage. You're welcome.By Thomas Anderson
All this week, BAYWATCH '09 has given you the goods on all things that go BOOM. Monday was the 10 Best Michael Bay-directed Music Videos… Tuesday was the first ever Michael Bay Explosion Tournament… Well, it wouldn't be a proper Bay-themed week without cleavage. You're welcome. By Thomas Anderson It doesn’t matter how many movies Michael Bay comes out with; you still get the sense that he just might be sitting there behind the camera, sneaking a peek at Megan Fox’s stomach or Scarlet Johansson’s ass (hell, wouldn’t you?). Sometimes you wonder if he cast them simply so he could ogle them from behind the camera and create a few off-camera explosions in his pants, but you’ve got to hand it to the guy: he knows how to populate his worlds with gorgeous bombshells who are strong, independent women who often find the need to remove their clothes to save the world, or maybe just give the hero a little pick-me-up.
In the past seven years we've seen a glut of Asian movies remade on our shores. Some of them fantastic, others craptastic. Well, now it looks like the shoe is on the other foot. The Playlist reports that House of Flying Daggers director Zhang Yimou is remaking the Coen Brothers classic Blood Simple in his homeland of China. I hope this does well and leads to more retreads on foreign soil because I personally would love to see a Japanese version of Goodfellas. How great would that be? All the gangsters would dress like Elvis and gesture wildly like Lenny and Squiggy. "What's that? You think I'm clown? I amuse you, hound dog?"Oh my God. This film needs to be made.

M. Night Shyamalan is back…but there's a twist! He's doing a kid's movie. I guess he decided to take a break from "scary" since the scariest part about his most recent films are how not scary they are. The Last Airbender is about an Avatar who has the ability to manipulate elements and bring nations together. Also, according to the trailer, he can blow out a shitload of candles with palm-breath.
