Tuesday, May 5 by

Well, it was inevitable, really.  The Punisher is teaming up with Eminem in an all new Marvel comic book.  Read more about it at FilmDrunk, who actually had something insightful to say about it, unlike us.  We just laughed like a schoolgirl thinking of the inevitable in which Eminem can get challenged to battle lyrically, then win because the guy with the twin uzis, trenchcoat and the skull painted on his shirt is standing behind him without his knowlege.  Crowd pleaser!!!And while you're at it, check out these other peoples' insights about stuff and things and more stuff.Supreme Court Listens To Janet Jackson (MoonDogSports)The Best Of Keyboard Cat (SickPigs)Kate Beckinsale Is Hot (Manofest)RP Dom DeLouise (Pajiba)A Corset like Pirates of the Caribbean, but on a dude, and on ice (With Leather)Abby M's Spank Bank (GorillaMask)Homemade Wolverine Claws (IAmBored)Instruction Manuals For The Enterprise (Cracked)More on Wolverine 2 (Filmofilia)Unborn Official Art (DreadCentral)Celebrity Autobiographies We'd Like To See (Holytaco)Celtics Fans Can't Hold Their Booze (BustedCoverage)Charity Hodges Is Also Hot (Uncoached)Trekkies Bash New Star Trek (Unreality)

‘SHADOW HARE’ TO TOP BOX OFFICE IN 2013 IF YOU ARE AN EXTREME OPTIMIST, OR SHADOW HARE
Monday, May 4 by

If the studios ever run out of comic book properties to adapt, maybe they should take their creative execs on a retreat to Cincinnati for inspiration.  Check out this video of "The Shadow Hare," the Queen City's resident masked vigilante.  "Since when has Cincinnati had one great hero?" asks Shadow Hare.  I don't know.  Maybe Neil Armstrong.  Maybe Steven Spielberg.  Maybe Ulysses S. Grant.  All crime fighters in the Cincinnati area before they were famous.  Only Spielberg was captured on film, though.

Adam McKay and Will Ferrell have picked up a pitch from Dead Snow director Tommy Wirkola.

Sword Fightin’ Morning News
Wednesday, April 29 by

Michael Bay and McG have been feuding these last few months over who's robot movie will rule the box office this summer. But now /film reports that McG has taken it to a new level. He wants to measure one another's ding-dongs in a public forum. Really, McG?? I expect that kind of thing from Brett Ratner but not from you. Reached for comment, Bay responded, "My boom stick is legendary. Sometimes I use it to floor the accelerator on my Hummer. Talk about horse power! BOOM!"

The Daily Mail reports that armed robbers recently bound and terrorized Dolph Lundgren's wife after breaking into the family's home. However they fled once they realized exactly from whom they were stealing.

EVA MENDES TOPLESS IS IN VOGUE
Monday, April 27 by

Yep, it's a bad pun, but I made you look.  The next issue of Italian Vogue has a racy spread with several photos of a very topless Eva Mendes (who they make out to have some kinda foot fetish, too).  Leave it to Italian Vogue to get the scoop over their American counterparts.  It's the sort of twist that really makes me want to see Italian Hitch, Italian Stuck On You and Italian We Own The Night.  You couldn't drag me to Italian Ghost Rider, though.  Not with all the naked Eva Mendes in the world.  Check out the photos below, and while you're at it, visit some of Screenjunkies' link friends.                              Trailer for The Skeptic is why Inside the Actors Studio airs (FilmDrunk)Spike Lee Denies Rift With Kobe (MoondogSports)Whoopie Goldberg Talks To Dinosaurs (SickPigs)Tony Danza Is Just Way Too Cool (Manofest)Plenty Of Hustle And No Flow (Pajiba)Keira Knightley Is Hot (Filmofilia)Heidi Watney Upskirt Pics (BustedCoverage)Christa Cavelli's Spank Bank (GorillaMask)Susan Boyle Makes South Park (IAmBored)The Saddest World Record Attempts (Cracked)Zombie Marriage Counseling (DreadCentral)The Difference Between Swine Flu And A Trip To Mexico (Holytaco)Allison Stokke Is A Hottie (Uncoached)Terminators PG-13 Rating Isn't So Bad (Unreality)Alexander Desplat Scores Twilight Sequel (ThePlaylist)The Molls Show (TomOatmeal)The Hottest Movie Fighter Girlfriends (Chickipedia)Punched In The Skull (NothingToxic)

Corey Feldman spilled the beans on his blog yesterday about Empire Magazine's Goonies reunion interview and photo-shoot. He noted that the entire cast and Richard Donner and Steven Spielberg were on-hand to reminisce about the classic film. That must have been an awkward room.   COREY: Hi Steven!

Hipster Love Morning News

A new trailer is up for Paper Heart. The documentary that won a screenwriting award this year at Sundance (makes sense). It stars Charlyne Yi as a girl who does not believe in love and her real-life boyfriend Michael Cera as a boy who believes in dressing like a middle-schooler. What a cute couple! I think we can all agree that their offspring will look like something out of Jim Henson's sketchbook. Check out the trailer at /film.Here's the morning news. Ja Holy Sh*t!!

PHILLIPS’ NEW ‘CINEMA 21:9′ HDTV. FINALLY. SOMEONE GETS ASPECT RATIO.
Friday, April 17 by

Are you one of those people who always wondered why they didn't make HDTVs a 2.35:1 aspect ratio?  You go to the movie theater and see a grand, sweeping movie shot in the widest widescreen possible, and then rent the movie later at home – the Blu-Ray, no less, on your brand new LCD screen – and you get black bars on the top and bottom.         Sucks, right?  It's like you're paying extra to see a Lars Von Trier flick in IMAX.  Well, fret no longer.  Phillips has unleashed the sleek "Cinema 21:9" HDTV which will display those 2.35:1 widescreen movies in their intended aspect ration – and with no unsightly bars at the top and bottom.  The image actually takes up the entire screen.  Who'da thunk it?   Phillips is also releasing special web shorts to coincide with the TV's launch.  You can check out the amazing "Carousel," directed by Adam Berg and starring a bunch of seamless visual effects recreating a single moment in time during a bank robbery, but stretched out like some fly-through bullet time sequence you probably put your friends through every time you school them at Madden.  See for yourself after the jump.
