Looks like being trapped underground for two months is finally starting to pay off. Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment is negotiating to buy the film rights for the story of the Chilean miners. It’s not hard to believe that a Hollywood big shot would want to bring such a dramatic true life event to the big screen, but The Wrap also reports that the miners are negotiating roles for themselves.
Good news and bad news about the Footloose remake. The good news is it’s no longer a Zac Efron vehicle, and it’s no longer based on the Broadway musical. The bad news: it’s still a remake.

It’s fan-made, so don’t freak out.
Darren Aronofsky would like you to see his new film, Black Swan, as a companion to his previous Oscar nominated The Wrestler. Maybe they’ll show as a double feature. Black Swan is about a ballet dancer (Natalie Portman) losing her grip with reality, and The Wrestler was about a steroid monster trying to make up with his daughter.

Tuesday, Entertainment Tonight is going to premiere the Green Lantern trailer that will play before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Yesterday they premiered the teaser of that trailer in between “We’re number one! We’re number one!” promotional graphics.

A new super-cut is making the rounds this afternoon. Much like “We’ve Got Company,” “Famous Last Words,” and “I Hate Muffins,” “You Look Like Sh*t” highlights all the times characters in movies are told they look like sh*t, or tell someone else they resemble sh*t. And 22% of that time, that person is Bruce Willis.
20th Century Fox sent over an exclusive red-band trailer of Ed Zwick’s Love & Other Drugs starring Jack Gyllenhaal and Anna Hathaway. We can finally see that this film has some edge to it, and a ton of synonyms for the word “penis.”

The other week, Ted Raimi, brother of director Sam Raimi, beat us up, stole our Flip Cam, and flew to NYC to attend Zombie Con. He tooled around the convention floor, married some living dead lovers, and snapped some footage of Bruce Campbell interrogating a zombie.
We don’t always agree on the happenings in the entertainment industry and we like to make our beefs public. Tom Hanks has the persona of being Hollywood’s golden child, but is he really a nice guy or is he in fact a total dick? Fight!
Imagine a interactive Choose Your Own Adventure with a zombie storyline. Now stop imagining because it’s real! Editing the Dead puts you in control of your fate. Depending on your selection at the end of each video clip, you’re taken down a different path that could lead to salvation or being eaten alive.
Obviously Unstoppable is Speed on a train, but it’s about 15 years too late for that comparison. Maybe now it’s more like The Fast and the Furious on a train. It certainly is the fastest, most furious movie of the year.
Between scissoring Mila Kunis in Black Swan and getting blazed with Danny McBride in Your Highness, Natalie Portman is all grows up and showing her wild side. That trend is slated to continue.
Battle: Los Angeles has a teaser trailer, and you’re going to watch it. After all, I’m assuming you love Aaron Eckhart as much as I do. If not, you’re insane, but I’m sure you can at least enjoy the stunning special effects and eerie music.
This Break Original asks the question, “What if Milton from Office Space sang a catchy diddy about his troubles with Lumberg and his red Swingline stapler?” Don’t be surprised if it’s playing Off-Broadway in a few months. The married squirrels part is touching.

Once you get past the wig, Season Of The Witch doesn’t look half bad. I’m not sure why its release was pushed to be dumped in the movie-going wasteland that is January (the New Jersey of months).
Rosario Dawson has made it clear that she’d like to appear as a sexy Klingon in the Star Trek sequel. I added the “sexy” part.
Seeing how it’s Veterans Day, we’d be remiss if we didn’t honor, in our own special Screen Junkies way, those brave people who serve our country everyday. So, that said, we came up with an entire regiment of some of the more memorable servicemen seen on the big screen – from five stars to the lowly gun-totin’ folks who aren’t allowed patches yet – just like the Boy Scouts, you have to earn ‘em.
