Saturday, November 6 by

This week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly features a snap shot of Muppet chaos with Jason Segel smack dab in the middle. Most the characters in the new Muppet Movie you might recognize, but one precocious little fella stands out.

Kunis Is Timberlake’s Slam-Piece In ‘Friends With Benefits’ Red Band Trailer
Friday, November 5 by

After yesterday’s posting of the No Strings Attached trailer, the film became an instant classic. So much so, that there’s already a copycat. Today we have a red band, naughty trailer for Friends With Benefits, which stars Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis in the Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman roles respectively.

David O. Russell and Ice Cube Reteam for Gritty 70′s Cop Movie
Friday, November 5 by

Now that David O. Russell is willing to do just about anything, he’s got another weird sounding project in the works. It’s still too early for big details, but he and his Three Kings star Ice Cube are working together on a potential franchise. No, it won’t involve any kids asking when they’ll arrive at their planned destination.

Trailer for Ivan Reitman’s ‘No Strings Attached’
Friday, November 5 by

Behold, the trailer for Ivan Reitman’s No Strings Attached, a film about a couple that tries to have a purely sexual relationship without falling in love. After watching it, I realized that life is funny. One minute you’re directing some of the greatest comedies of all time, and the next you’re directing an Ashton Kutcher movie based on an old episode of “Seinfeld.”

Adam Sandler Assaults Kid In ‘Just Go With It’ Trailer
Friday, November 5 by

Columbia Pictures has dropped the trailer for Adam Sandler’s latest, Just Go With It. It’s funny how that title encapsulates pretty much what I do with all of Sandler’s movies now, because it’s so exhausting to fight it anymore.

Friday, November 5 by

If all goes as planned for the folks behind the upcoming Spider Man reboot, we’ll soon see Martin Sheen shot to death at the hands of an anonymous burglar.

Review: Megamind
Friday, November 5 by

Megamind is going to suffer for being the second animated superhero movie. In fact, it follows a long line of Dreamworks being second to Pixar (fish, monsters although they did beat them to insects). I’m not saying it’s The Incredibles, but Megamind is the best Dreamworks animated movie and certainly the best animated movie this year.

Review: Due Date
Friday, November 5 by

Due Date is a slow build of a comedy, and it’s effective at that. By the time it gets really crazy, you’re so waiting for it that it’s a cathartic release through the rest of the movie. It also means that the first half could be a bit of a chore if you’re not in it for the long haul.

Kevin James In ‘The Zookeeper’ Trailer
Friday, November 5 by

I can’t even muster up the will to make a clever headline for this post. Columbia Pictures has dropped the trailer for The Zookeeper starring Kevin James. He’s basically Doctor Doolittle sans the title that comes from years spent in animal medical school.

Review: Black Swan
Friday, November 5 by

Black Swan is some classic Darren Aronofsky crazy. If you missed the high style of Requiem for a Dream or the abstract interpretive level of The Fountain, they’re back. Yet it’s also set in a physical world like The Wrestler, so maybe I can work Pi into this comparison somehow too.

Ed Harris Walks It Out In New ‘The Way Back’ Trailer

Personally, I don’t even like walking to the TV when I can’t find the remote, let alone across a tundra, desert, and over mountains. But I guess that’s what seperates…

Broke-Ass MGM Would Really Like ‘Bond 23′ In Theaters November 23, 2012
Thursday, November 4 by

MGM recently filed for bankruptcy, and you know what that means. It’s time for them to make movies! Don’t ask me how the government works because I cannot enlighten you. The Hobbit is finally scheduled to begin filming in February, and now it looks like MGM’s other huge franchise, the James Bond series, is picking up steam maybe but who the hell knows for sure.

Martin Lawrence Scars His Son For Life In ‘Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son’ Trailer
Thursday, November 4 by

Obligatory fat-suit dance scene aka "The Stiller"
The FBI's top agent, who is allowed to dress up as an overweight septuagenarian from time to time, is back and dressed up like an overweight septuagenarian (just go with it). In Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son, Martin Lawrence helps his stepson/murder-witness hide out by dressing him like Kenan Thompson's sister and enrolling him at an all girl's school. Despite the lack of the dude in drag forced to group shower scene, it sounds like a sound plan to me. I also ate the cat's ear medicine today.
Watch Big Momma shake it after the jump…

DVD Review: ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’
Thursday, November 4 by

As a recent and thoroughly wide-eyed convert to the cultish Church of Pilgrim, I was no doubt predisposed to drool over every moment of the Scott Pilgrim vs The World DVD bonus features. And drool I did, nearly the whole way through. Come to think of it, there might be something wrong with my mouth.

13 Memorable Movie Amputations
Thursday, November 4 by

Danny Boyle’s new film, 127 Hours, premieres tomorrow. James Franco stars as Aron Ralston, a climber who is forced to amputate his own arm after it is crushed under a rock. In honor of Ralston’s remarkable tale of survival, we here at Screen Junkies came up with a list of other memorable films that feature scenes of amputation. Some of them are disturbing, others are lighthearted, but all of them contain badly mutilated limbs, and that’s the important part. Enjoy!

‘Silent Hill’ Gets A Sequel And That Sequel Gets A Director
Thursday, November 4 by

"Gross. Cut it out, you guys!!"
Sadly, we'll have to wait for the bad taste of Jonah Hex to dissolve from our collective cheek lining before we'll be able to see Solomon Kane. But  that doesn't mean we can't still enjoy the work of Kane writer-director Michael Bassett. Thanks to DVD sales and a strong show overseas, Silent Hill is now getting a go at a sequel (which will be in 3D naturally), and Bassett has been hired to direct.
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D will follow a story that stands alone from the original. It traces the plot of the third video game with 17-year old Heather Mason journeying to the nightmare town of Silent Hill to find her missing father, only to discover the gruesome truth about her self. Now,  before you get all uppity about it, you should know that it's being shot in 3D. Not post-converted. So, you'll have to come up with some other excuse not to see it when my weirdo friend George asks me to go. (BloodyDisgusting)
