Fake Lenny Kravitz Cast as ‘Conan the Barbarian’ Lead
Friday, January 22 by

It's so refreshing to wake up and see a story about the non-Tonight Show Conan. Lionsgate has cast the lead for their upcoming remake of the barbarian classic Conan. And the new barbarian is…. some dude! His name is Jason Momoa. You know him. He's in all those Stargate: Atlantis commercials. He's the Lenny Kravitz-looking guy. The one with the smelly hair. On top of that his resume includes being Lisa Bonet's babby-daddy, Baywatch, and Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding. He beat out Twilight's Kellan Lutz and Supernatural's Jared Padalecki for the role based on his running-in-slow-motion prowess. Filming is scheduled to begin mid-March in Bulgaria with Marcus Nispel behind the camera. Say what you will, at least it's not Brett Ratner. We'll keep you updated when the rap-rock accompanied trailer premieres. (Deadline Hollywood)

Red Band ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ Trailer Dares to Insult ‘Back to the Future II’
Thursday, January 21 by

The red band trailer for Hot Tub Time Machine is here to give us a swearier/boobier look at what we've already seen. It stars John Cusack, Rob Corddry, and Craig Robinson as the characters from The Hangover, as well as Clark Duke as a kid that looks like a koala or a young Charles Nelson Reilly. You can catch the movie in theaters on March 19th. You can also catch hepatitis from a toilet seat, which I would gladly do over watching this movie.

‘Clash of the Titans’ in 3D Maybe
Thursday, January 21 by

Those of you who prefer Sam Worthington to protrude unnaturally from the screen may be in luck. In the wake of Avatar's box office death-grip, Warner Bros executives are now considering converting the epic to 3D. Within the next 10 days, they will screen a few converted scenes and then make the call whether the full conversion is worth it.A possible reason for the upgrade is that DreamWorks Animation’s big kid-friendly feature How to Train Your Dragon is also releasing over the March 26th weekend. If Titans wants a bid at number one, they'll need the higher-priced tickets. But between Dragon and Avatar (which will probably still be crushing all who oppose it) will there be enough 3D screens?Like Warners, I'm not 100% on-board with the conversion. At first, it seems like a good idea to have Liam Neeson's Kraken swinging in your face. But, I don't know. It might just be too much Kraken. (THR)

‘Legion’ Actress Kate Walsh
Thursday, January 21 by

Kate Walsh was one of the many hot doctors on Grey's Anatomy until she got her own show, Private Practice, where she's the main hot doctor. She also played Drew Carey's girlfriend once, but that's gross.  A word from Kate: "Do I give off a girl-on-girl vibe? Other chicks seem to love me!"I say go with it. See what happens. If it doesn't feel right your intuition is probably wrong and you should just continue. Go with the flow of the pics after the jump.

Favreau Talks About ‘Iron Man’ Having No Secret Identity
Thursday, January 21 by

Just before the credits rolled on Iron Man, Tony Stark revealed to the world that he is indeed the armored hero. In the sequel, the filmmakers explore the effects of living in public view by likening the life of a superhero to that of a celebrity. Director Jon Favreau discussed this parallel with the Los Angeles Times: "Robert had strong points of view on these things. He was propelled quite publicly to a much more successful station and we were able to draw upon that. We were able to comment on the phenomena of celebrity as we know it today."… "It allowed us to draw upon our experiences and certainly Robert's experiences." Robert's experiences? Does that mean that we can expect to see Iron Man blow rails off hookers while wearing a Wonder Woman costume? Seems to me that's what he's hinting at. You can quote Favreau on this one you guys.

Adidas is coming out with a new Star Wars collection of their Originals, and apparently they thought Snoop Dogg and Daft Punk were the perfect way to sell it.

Ryan Reynolds Vlogs in New ‘Buried’ Trailer
Wednesday, January 20 by

Director Rodrigo Cortés unveils Buried this week at Sundance and now we have a short trailer. Well, it's more of a Flip video really. Whereas most YouTube journals discuss cute boys or the tedium of schoolwork, this one gets a lot more bummerific by discussing being buried alive in Iraq with only 90 minutes to live. LOL, I guess. It's still funnier than Lisa Nova.No word yet on a wide release date but expect one soon. It seems like an interesting movie with a strong premise. Haven't we all wanted to see Ryan Reynolds in a coffin at some point? (MTV)Dig the trailer up after the jump…

Buried
Wednesday, January 20 by

DIRECTOR: Rodrigo CortésCAST: Ryan Reynolds; Ivana MiñoSYNOPSIS: Paul is a U.S. contractor working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it's a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.

‘Legion’ Actress Willa Holland
Wednesday, January 20 by

I didn't watch The O.C. and I don't watch Gossip Girl, so I had no idea who Willa Holland was until I looked up the Legion credits, but I have to say I'm awfully glad I know now. She's only 19-years-old, but in all the states that are part of the Union that's what we here at Screen Junkies like to call legal. A word from Willa: "I was at (Steven Spielberg's) house, playing with his kids."It's amazing how he'll just let anyone from off the street come in, make a sandwich, use his facilities, sleep in his bed, and play video games with his kids. He just can't be home when you do it.Check out more pics after the jump when no one else is home.

‘True Grit’ will be Released in the Heart of Awards Season
Wednesday, January 20 by

And the winner of the 2011 Oscar for Best Picture is… True Grit. Oh sorry, I was future-writing again. The Coen Brother's True Grit hasn't won any awards yet (nor has it been filmed or finished casting) but Paramount is showing a lot of faith by setting the remake up for a Christmas Day release.Jeff Bridges is set to star as Rooster Cogburn, the drunken U.S. Marshal originally played by John Wayne, as he teams up with a 14-year old girl to avenge her father's murder. Matt Damon and Josh Brolin are also on board as a Texas Ranger and the murderer respectively. There's a lot of talent involved here and it looks like a definite contender even this far out.Bridges has a good shot at finally winning his Oscar this year with Crazy Heart. So who knows? Maybe next year the role will bring him Oscar glory like it did for Wayne. Then he'll become a member of the back-to-back winner's club. A club that hosts Luise Rainer, Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn, Jason Robards, Tom Hanks, and Zac Efron. Sorry. Future-writing again. (Variety)

10 Best January Releases of All Time
Wednesday, January 20 by

We all know January movies suck. That’s why it’s so surprising and notable when a decent one gets through the first month of the year, let alone a downright good one. So maybe this is like rating the top 10 dictators less evil than Hitler, but since we’re stuck in January for another two weeks it’s at least nice to remember that there’s still hope for good movies. And I’m not talking about the Oscar movies that go wide in January or foreign movies that happen to get their U.S. release in January. I’m talking about movies intended to open in January that somehow turned out well.10. Hostel

Sony Hires New Director for ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot. Who Will Be Their Peter Parker?
Wednesday, January 20 by

After creative differences with Sam Raimi ground Spider-Man 4 to a halt, Sony decided to salt the earth and start over with a new story and a new director, one they could push around. (500) Days of Summer's Marc Webb is that guy!Webb is signed on to get bullied by the studio for one film with an option to do more if he's a good little bitch. From Webb:"I think the Spider-Man mythology transcends not only generations but directors as well. I am signing on not to 'take over' from Sam. That would be impossible. Not to mention arrogant. I'm here because there's an opportunity for ideas, stories, and histories that will add a new dimension, canvas, and creative voice to Spider-Man."After releasing this statement, Columbia chairman Amy Pascal said, "Good boy, Marc," before patting him on the head and giving him a juicebox.

DVD Review: ‘The Bourne Series’
Tuesday, January 19 by

If you’re like me, and you’re still not convinced you should shell out the extra cash for a Blu-Ray player (case it point: my “revolutionary” mini-DV player is now worth $4 on Craig’s List), then the re-release of the Bourne Series on flipper discs is a good compromise. Like Jason Bourne himself the three discs don’t quite know what they are— DVD on one side and Blu-Ray on the other—which actually is perfectly fine with me: I won’t feel like a moron adding an obsolete DVD or un-tested Blu-Rays to my library. Read more after the jump.

‘Piranha 3D’ Trailer Looks Better Than Expected
Tuesday, January 19 by

All right Screen Junkies, time to put on your 3D glasses and get ready to witness the mayhem of Piranha 3D. In this trailer you'll see the — what's that? You don't have 3D glasses? Well, you're supposed to be ready at all times. These are the post-Avatar days we're living in afterall.For those of you who did come prepared, please enjoy this blurry look at a sh*tty movie that tries to sell you on the combined star power of Elisabeth Shue and Jerry O'Connell. Last week we heard it has had its release date pushed back maybe indefinitely. Moreover, if it does ever come out, word is it won't be in 3D anymore. But hey, BOOBIES!!!And on a sidenote, how are you going to make a movie about piranha where a guy on a jet ski rolls under the water's surface and doesn't emerge as a skeleton? That's just lazy filmmaking. (Pajiba)Check out the trailer with the little scary fishies after the jump…

‘Creation’ Actress Jennifer Connelly
Tuesday, January 19 by

Your obsession with Jennifer Connelly began back when she starred alongside a creepy (normal) David Bowie in Labyrinth. Since then it has grown with each passing film, and even though the quality of Jennifer's work has gone downhill since she won her Oscar for A Beautiful Mind, you still love her unconditionally. By the way, I project my infatuations. A word from Jennifer: "It's just funny looking back at yourself walking and talking at age 14."Someone's a late bloomer, Jennifer… I was already hearing about this thing people were doing called "sex" by 14.  Check out more pics of Jennifer's blooming after the jump.

Hustler’s Making an ‘Avatar’ Porno. Duh.
Tuesday, January 19 by

The "Reverse Na'vi-girl" has already been perfected. Someone over at Hustler had the brilliant idea to turn the second (soon maybe first) most profitable movie of all time into a porno. Give that man a promotion! In addition to Hustler, he must have an endless subscription to DUH!!!!!! Magazine.The nakey, sweaty, blue-smeary version of Avatar will be called This Ain't Avatar XXX, and it's just one of a few forthcoming porn parodies from Hustler. They also plan to "produce" This Ain't Curb Your Enthusiasm XXX, This Ain't Glee XXX, and This Ain't CSI XXX: Chatsworth. Another genius must by scribbling these names down feverishly in the titling department.In fact, the titles are confusing and misleading altogether. Is this NOT Avatar XXX? Does that mean it's just the Avatar without all the moaning and thrusting? If I'm browsing the shelves of my favorite adult bookstore for the latest Avatar porn why would I want to buy the one called This AIN'T Avatar XXX? I want This IS Avatar XXX. I want the IS! All of the blue, long-tailed, pointy-earred filthy IS they can crame into one poorly executed film! Just don't give it to me in 3D. My senses aren't prepared for that onslaught… (Empire)

‘MacGruber’ Red Band Trailer Explodes in Your Face
Tuesday, January 19 by

Today we have a first look at MacGruber, courtesy of this red-band trailer. Will Forte displays a swagger that is as equal parts Richard Dean Anderson as it is David Hasselhoff. Looks like a fun movie. It's filled with danger, intrigue, explosions, and Upper-Deckers. Just like one of Michael Bay's house parties.On a sidenote, did Val Kilmer hire Steven Seagal's stylist and Kirstie Alley's trainer? Rumor is that they needed the jaws of life to get him out of his trailer every morning.Check out the age-restricted red band trailer at here.MacGruber stunt-rolls in to theaters April 23rd, 2010.

‘Paranormal Activity 2′ Hires a ‘Saw’ Director
Tuesday, January 19 by

Last year's low-budget horror hit Paranormal Activity has been greenlit for a sequel. But how do you make a sequel to such a stripped-down film who's genius was found in it's simplicity? You hire a director known for their heavy-handed and overwrought filmmaking style.Saw VI's Kevin Greutert has been brought on board by Paramount to water down the scares and crank up the third-tier rap rock. Greutert was editor on all of the Saw movies and apprentice editor on Ernest Scared Stupid so we should be in really capable hands. The movie is scheduled to hit theaters on October 22nd, 2010, which leaves little time. Somebody get a Godsmack cover-band on the phone!! (THR)

Stupid Rumors Round-Up
Monday, January 18 by

You know it's a slow news day when I've got to break out Whiplash the Monkey Cowboy. The news today is all last night's Golden Globes, Christina Hendricks's globes, and vague tabloid rumors. Here's a round-up of everything that probably isn't going to happen in the world of entertainment.Tobey Maguire is Bilbo Baggins – He's denied the rumor before but now that Spidey 4 is dead, some say that Tobey Maguire will be cast in The Hobbit. But those people are British, therefore liars. (The Sun)Robert Pattinson is Spider-man – Robert Pattinson (or R-Patz as I refuse to call him) is tabloid fodder created merely to give young girls and Adam Shankman something to talk about. The studio-controlled Spider-man reboot will be undoubtedly mishandled but I doubt it's going the Tiger Beat route. (Star Pulse)Wes Craven Might Not Direct 'Scream 4' – Come on, Wes. David Arquette NEEDS you. (MTV)Sigourney Weaver Hints at 'Avatar' Sequel Involvement – After all the crap she's put out there about Ghostbusters 3, you need a PKE-style Bullsh*t Meter to corroborate her stories. (MTV)

Mark Strong Considering ‘Green Lantern’ Role, Jackie Earle Haley Considering More Distracting Facial Hair
Monday, January 18 by

The attractiveness of castmembers for Martin Campbell's upcoming Green Lantern is no longer in jeopardy. Reports last week that Jackie Earle Haley was the front-runner for the role of Sinestro have been debunked by the director. MTV asked Campbell about the Haley casting rumor and he responded,"What? No. That ugly old thing?? No way. I'd sooner cast that hulk from Precious."Well, he didn't exactly say that. But he totally wanted to. You can tell. Check it out."No. That's completely wrong. In fact, we're in negotiations with Mark Strong to play Sinestro. He's not only a wonderful actor, but he looks like Sinestro. If you look up old pictures of Sinestro, he's very like him. The Jackie Earle Haley thing, somebody told me about it this morning; I had never heard it before in my life."Mark Strong is on a hot streak. Between Sherlock Holmes, Kick-Ass, and Green Lantern (and rumored sequels), he'll be Hollywood's official villian (behind Jeff Zucker). Somewhere, Andy Garcia weeps. (MTV)

New ‘Inception’ Pic Features Leo Trapped in a Painting
Monday, January 18 by

Leo DiCaprio is on the hunt for Salvador Dali in this new pic from Christopher Nolan's Inception. I don't know if that's what's officially happening, but since Inception and LOST both choose to give us NOTHING before their premieres I only have my ridiculous assumptions to go on. In an interview with the L.A. Times, Christopher Nolan said that Inception was a larger endeavor than The Dark Knight, filming in no less than six countries. I'm guessing the above pic was taken in China, because I've never been there and I like to imagine China looks like a melted oil painting. Christopher Nolan went on to say, "I think we've put a lot of different things into the pot with this one. I grew up watching James Bond films and loving those and watching spy movies with their globe-trotting sensibility." The L.A. Times describes the film's premise as corporate espionage by way of dream invasion. Sweet. It's like John Grisham rewriting The Firm totally baked. Now if only he'd rewrite A Time to Kill while under the influence. Matthew McCaughnehey's character would be TOTALLY the same.

2010 Golden Globe Winners

"Maybe swinging by Taco Bell before the show was a mistake on my part."Last night at the 2010 Golden Globe Awards, host Ricky Gervais talked about his penis and helped hand out some statues. Avatar won for Best Motion Picture Drama and Best Director. Michael C. Hall and John Lithgow dominated for their work on Dexter. The Hurt Locker walked away empty-handed. Maybe the film will have better luck at The Academy Awards where the winners are based on merit, not studio checkbooks. *almost keeps a straight face*CHECK OUT THE FULL LIST OF WINNERS AFTER THE JUMP…
