I don't know what's funnier: Common's awkward foray into postmodern comedy or Christopher Mintz-Plasse looking like he's about to squirt poop his tighty whities while delivering Denzel Washington's Oscar-winning "King Kong aint' got sh*t on me" speech to a bunch of legitimately street looking black dudes. Either way, this video was worth five minutes of my time. Then again, I run a movie and TV website. Pretty much anything is worth my time. [via CineMash]King Kong Ain't Got Sh*t on 'Deez Links!

THIS IS A WARNING. If you've come to this page with the intention of being aroused you should turn back now. You saw the word "NUDE" and thought everything was going to be hunky-dory, but you are sorely mistaken. There are no perky breasts or tight rumps to be found here, my friends. We're about to showcase a few outstanding nude scenes that won't leave you standing at attention. Sometimes they're for a laugh, sometimes they're for dramatic effect, but all of them are guaranteed to make you…uncomfortable. So here's your heads up, Screen Junkies. If you're watching any of these films below and gross, grey anatomy pops onto screen, don't say we didn't warn you. Kathy Bates in About Schmidt
Over the past decade, reality shows have taken over the airwaves. Some are genuine and engaging. Others are exploitative and sink to new lows never experienced previously on television. In honor of More To Love, FOX's new big person dating show, we've put together a list of reality shows that have pushed the boundaries of good taste whether with their content or their marketing. Take a look at the tastless, mean, and misunderstood. WHO'S YOUR DADDY?
Astro Boy is rocket-booting its way toward an October release and I couldn't be more excited. I've been searching for an awesome robot fix since The Iron Giant and The Day The Earth Stood Still just didn't cut muster. So I say hurry up October! Anyhow, we've got 6 sweet-looking new stills that offer first looks at a few of the film's characters including Dr. Tenma, President Stone, and Dr. Elefun (voiced by Nicolas Cage, Donald Sutherland, and Bill Nighy respectively). The official site also offers an interactive timeline which traces Astro Boy's 60 year history. Check out the pics after the jump, including one of Astro Boy enjoying the android version of a golden shower.Don Cheadle talks War Machine. (Latino Review)Rats of NIMH remake infesting theaters.

It's finally here: Comic-Con 2009! Whether you're reading this from the comfort of your living room in the Midwest, or the comfort of a hard sidewalk as you wait in line for the NEW MOON panel, your heart has to be racing for all the fun in store these next few days. Screen Junkies will be there the entire time, quick on the draw with our Twitter, and posting updates right here on the site. To kick off the convention, we thought we'd offer a word to the wise attendee. In the below video clip, Kevin Smith shows us why you never heckle a man with a microphone. His voice projects a lot louder than yours, and that includes when he makes fun of your mother. So remember fans, well thought out inquires only. Note: If you have trouble viewing the video click here.
Out of the 30,000 movies produced each year only 700 see theatrical distribution. If you do the math correctly, that means that there are exactly one gazillion movies that very few people see — movies that have their own charms whether those charms be a skewed sense of humor or a dude jacking off onto a chicken. For every watered down family-friendly blowstravaganza like Wild Hogs, there's a truly brilliant gem that has only found itself a small but loyal group of fans. We've turned over a few rocks and come up with trailers for ten crazy little cult flicks. RUBIN AND ED
We don't post a lot of music videos here on Screenjunkies.com – nor do we post anything about Coldplay after 40-Year-Old Virgin seemed to ruin them for most guys with one innocent line of bro banter. But you can't deny that their music videos are almost always decidedly the opposite of Seth Rogen's assessment of the band. So, enjoy this music video for the band's newest single, "Strawberry Swing." And if you don't like Coldplay, just turn down the volume and crank up that Indigo Girls iTunes Essentials collection you use to kick start your mornings.
We know you're sick of hearing about Michael Jackson, but this was too bizarre to pass up. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Jackson loved the movies, so much so that he wanted to produce, direct, and star in them. The first part of the above video shows Michael interviewing the author of a book entitled They Cage the Animals at Night that he wanted to adapt, but it's the second part that caught our attention. In the movie "Miss Castaway and the Island Girls," Jackson briefly appears as Agent A.J. who comes to rescue the characters on a beam of light: Beam up the rest of this morning's links…Raimi enters into The World of Warcraft (Cinematical)A Comic-Con preview with pretty pictures (USA Today)Harry Potter directors by the numbers (First Showing)Bousman gets into real estate (Variety)Abdul might be out of Idol (Cinema Blend)
According to FilmDrunk, a 14-year-old boy has been drinking gasoline for five years so he can be like his hero "Optimus Prime." Back in my day if you got excited by a movie you had your mom drive you over to Toys R Us and you screamed and kicked until she bought the toy you wanted. You didn't grab a lenth of garden hose and siphon gas out of your Dad's Kawasaki. Apparently the gasoline has made the kid dumber and he can no longer do math.

Kathie Lee is a Creep – Watch more Funny VideosEverything Is Terrible unearthed this video of Kathie Lee Gifford giving a walkthrough of her homelife under the guise of a workout video. To say that the footage is scary and bizarre is an understatement. Her home and humor seem beyond weird and this really makes me worry about young Cody and Cassidy and what they're up to nowadays. Law enforcement would be wise to keep an eye on the Gifford kids. Leatherface had a more normal upbringing than them.

ComingSoon has premiered a new photo from Wes Anderson's adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic children's tale The Fantastic Mr. Fox. The film centers on a fox who squares off in a battle of wits against three dimwitted farmers. Animation is a bit of a departure for Anderson but his meticulous attention to detail seems well-suited for this work. I'm not totally clear as to why the fox is masturbating in the above photo.Blow off some steam with these morning links…First (non-blurry) look at Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2.

Here we have the trailer for Blood and Bone. The film tells the story of Isiah Bone, a man fresh out of prison who enters the Los Angeles underground street fighting scene in order to bring down a local mob boss because God told him too. That seems all well and good and totally batsh*t but what I want to know is, why do characters in movies like this always have the sloppiest parole officers? The guy's out there kicking people to death left and right. And how did he even get out of prison in the first place? Is kicking Kimbo Slice considered good behavior?

The teaser trailer for next summer's Despicable Me has arrived online and has accomplished what Michael Bay could not… it destroys the Pyramid of Giza. Well, an inflatible facsimile but still. Not much is revealed about the actual plot but it looks like it could be a fun ride. The film stars Steve Carrell, Danny McBride, Kristin Wiig and four of the other fifteen people that are in every comedy. I guess Jason Bateman and Bill Hader weren't invited to this party.

Well, you can set those worries aside. UGO received an exclusive first look at a drawing… of the toy… based off the actor… playing the role of the cartoon.

FUNNY PEOPLE Red Band Trailer – Watch more Funny Videos Here we have the red-band trailer for Judd Apatow's Funny People. In this release they've taken the focus off all that cancer/dying bidness in order to focus on the jokes. And, well… honestly the stand-up in this clip is a little weak. I'm really hoping that the filmmakers are saving the best punchlines for the film itself because I really want this movie to be great.

A tipster wrote in to Latino Review to report a strange publicity stunt that they witnessed over the Fourth of July weekend.

Though it has already been released in Europe and Asia, Tony Jaa's Ong Bak 2 has yet to find an American theatrical release date. I've posted a new trailer below that shows off Jaa's ability to kick both man and beast in the face. Hopefully the Weinstein company will release it later this year.

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.

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.

Film School Rejects has posted the first pics of Megan Fox in Diablo Cody's latest Jennifer's Body. In the film, Fox stars as a high school cheerleader turned blood-thirsty, demonic cannibal after she is improperly sacrificed to Satan.

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.

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.
