Director: Oren MovermanCast: Ben Foster, Woody Harrelson, Samantha Morton Synopsis: An American soldier struggles with an ethical dilemma when he becomes involved with a widow of a fallen officer.
Huge news that, if true, could produce a film that either rejuvenates one of the best comedy franchises in movie history, or could destroy the film industry forever. Yes, I'm talking about the fact that New Line/Warner Bros. have signed Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin to produce and possibly direct a National Lampoon's Vacation sequel. Now, I'm someone who doesn't even consider Vegas Vacation a part of the franchise. It's why I've enjoyed referring to the Griswold's misadventures over the years as, "The Vacation Trilogy." After all, "Trilogy" has a nice ring to it and aside from Rusty's Mr. Papageorgio subplot and the casting of Marisol Nichols as daughter Audrey Griswold… Vegas Vacation was about as much fun as arriving at Wally World only to find out it's closed for remodeling.

Predators round up Earth's Most Dangerous for the ultimate hunt.
Following in the footsteps of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Glover, Adrien Brody has signed on to battle alien big game hunters in Robert Rodriguez's Predators. Brody will play a badass fighting for survival on an alien planet alongside Alice Braga, Danny Trejo, Walt Goggins, Oleg Taktarov, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali, and Louiz Ozawa. Topher Grace is also rumored to be joining the project. I can't buy Adrien's "GRRR. I'm tough!" routine. Especially next to Danny Trejo, who will probably wear a Predator skin jacket by the end of the film.

Pizza and maximum wailage!!! This is what suburban childhood in the 1980s is all about, and any of you who have ever crapped your pants from either fear or excitement from an animatronic, anthropomorphic animal rock band (from either Showbiz Pizza or Chuck E. Cheese) can attest to its seductive power. I remember going to Showbiz Pizza back in the mid-1980s and spending countless hours at the skeeball machine, trying to win enough tickets to get a sh*tty frisbee with the likeness of the keyboard playing gorilla on it… then getting said frisbee and finally winding down to watch a set from The Rock-afire Explosion while over-indulging in pizza. It's why my grandmother had to buy me clothes in the "Husky" section of Dillard's department store. Anyway, Rock-afire Explosion: The Movie, which is all about one man's love of the Showbiz Pizza house band – to the point of actually buying a set of them and recreating the experience in his garage – is now available on DVD. Rent it. Buy it. Anything. Just watch it. And if you think this is some joke, check out animatronic maestro Chris Thrash's youtube page. We recommend doing so while huffing mozzarella for the full experience. You will not be disappointed. Rock-afire out to today's Top Links!

MTV has unveiled new a poster and a pair of stills from the upcoming Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. The movie tells the tale of twin brothers who have a penchant for filling the criminal underworld with holes (it was either that or bore them to death with scripture). Finally a poster worthy enough to hang near your The Crow: Stairway to Heaven standee. The stills depict irresponsible weapons handling as well as a group shot that I deem The Hungover Matrix.

Totally Awesome 1960s Tantrum Dance – Watch more Funny Videos BoingBoing posted this video and it was too good to not share with you all. It's a clip from the 1967 film The Cool Ones, a scene which demonstrates the dance that accompanies a song called "The Tantrum," which apparently was designed for white folks with no rhythm. Is it just us, or does that lead guy look a little like Robert Redford? Also, look for the guy trapped in the furnace, forced to look longingly at the outside world, his cries going unheard as the caucasian kids are overcome with the spirit of herky-jerky, arrhythmic body movin'.

(I wonder if she wears that helmet while directing.)Drew Barrymore's directorial debut underwhelmed at the box office this weekend despite critical praise.

Shutter Island Trailer #2 (HD) – Watch more Funny Videos Here we have a new trailer for Martin Scorsese's latest, Shutter Island. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio in a role normally played by Stephen Dorff as an investigator searching for a missing patient within the walls of a haunted mental institution. The movie was originally slated for an October release but has been pushed back to February 2010, a move that shows little studio confidence. A release date within the first few months of the year normally signifies that the movie is a turd. Think about it. Do movies starring Donald Faison or Jamie Kennedy ever get released after April?

I'm tasked with reviewing this movie but am utterly loath to give away any of the events of the movie itself. I'll keep it very, very basic (and I encourage you to skip any trailers, commercials, or in-depth descriptions): A couple has been experiencing strange events in their house so the boyfriend (Micah) buys a video camera to catch it on film so they can maybe figure out what's happening. That's about all you need to know about the plot. The movie is filmed entirely with Micah's camera and it alternates between daytime shots, where the couple discuss what's happening, and a static nighttime bedroom shot, where Micah sets the camera on a tripod so they can see what happens while they sleep. Aside from allowing some breathing room between scares, the alternating day-and-night mechanic is extremely efficient at creating a basic psychological response for the viewer–as soon as you see that static night shot, you tense up, grab the arm rest, your eyes start to water, and you get goose bumps like no one's business–and nothing's even happened yet.

Michael Bay announced via MichaelBay.com yesterday that Transformers 3 is a go. They've settled on a story and met with both ILM and Hasbro to discuss the details. Shia Labeouf and Megan Fox haven't announced their involvements yet but are expected to be on-board. In his announcement, Bay wrote directly to Fox: P.S. Megan Fox, welcome back. I promise no alien robots will harm you in any way during the production of this motion picture. Please consult your Physician when working under my direction because some side effects can occur, such as mild dizziness, intense nausea, suicidal tendencies, depression, minor chest hair growth, random internal hemorrhaging and inability to sleep. As some directors may be hazardous to your health, please consult your Doctor to determine if this is right for you. Minor chest hair growth? I wonder why that hasn't effected Shia.

Attacked By Crazies – Watch more Movie TrailersBreck Eisner's directorial track record is a little suspect. His 2005 feature debut, Sahara, made us McConaug-hate. And 'round these parts, we're not prone to negativity about Mr. J.K. Livin'. Needless to say, we were a little circumspect about this new project, The Crazies, a remake of George Romero's 1973 flick of the same name. But color us impressed by what we've seen so far. And it looks like Eisner is attached to helm both Creature from the Black Lagoon and Flash Gordon remakes in the next few years. So he must be doing something right.

Thanks to some early positive reviews and serendipitous schedule openings, Zombieland has been pushed up to an early release: this Friday, October 2nd. We couldn't be more excited for Zombies to deservedly reclaim the spotlight from those f**king vampires for at least a little while. Don't get us wrong. Zombies have never really left. Books like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Max Brooks's Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z… movies like Shawn of the Dead… even Twitter accounts like shitmyzombiesez have all been carrying the torch. In preparation of a Zombie attack this weekend, we've decided to provide you with some handy graphs, charts and diagrams to aid you. Feel free to work them into your company meetings.
A young woman strikes gold in the Hollywood Hills.
Back in high school, Lauren Conrad was featured on the MTV reality show Laguna Beach, a docudrama that followed the lives of Southern California teens. After graduation, she moved to Los Angeles and starred in the reality spin-off The Hills. She's since left the show but along the way a ghost-writer tapped Conrad to create a fictionalized biography about her televised life. That book, the New York Times bestseller LA Candy, joins the esteemed ranks of Viewfinder, Asteroids, and Battleship in getting it's own movie adaptation. That's correct. A movie based on a book based on a television show based on another television show based on nothing. Hollywood, please be careful when sucking your own d*ck. You could break your neck.

Japanese Night Vision Goggle Soccer – Watch more Funny Videos This is some Japanese blooper show from what looks to be the late 80's judging by the Cosby sweaters. And I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that famed filmmaker "Beat" Takeshi Kitano is the co-host of this program. It's as if Dave Coulier left "America's Funniest People" only to then direct and star in a bloody, violent Yakuza film. Though, truth be told, if they remade Battle Royale in English and I had to pick someone to play the teacher, I'd go with Coulier.

This morning, three new user-generated videos from the set of Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan's new movie, Inception, popped up online and we have them for you. They're all from the film's downtown Los Angeles shoot. It's hard to figure out exactly what's going on. The first clip is definitely the most interesting. Not since Amtrak sponsored Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade have I seen a train running along asphalt-paved city streets. But that was a long time ago… Guess this little transportation anomaly is all part of Inception's hook that it takes place "in the architecture of the mind." I wonder who the best coffee in this guy's head…

In May of 2009 Screen Junkies received an unsolicited review of Hannah Montana: The Movie from famed director and noted statutory rapist Roman Polanski. Due to current events we have decided to run the review in its entirety. Hannah Montana: The Movie is like an erotic daydream dealing with lust, taboo, and human nature. On the surface the film is a simple morality tale, but its depths surpass understanding. Over the past month I have watched the film more than 30 times, and I have analyzed it shot by shot. But the more clearly I see its physical manifestation, the more I am stirred by its erotic mystery. The film opens with our middle-aged hero, Robby Ray Stewart (Billy Ray Cyrus), sitting in a changing room, staring longingly at a blonde female wig. Like Citizen Kane’s “Rosebud,” or the green light at the end of Gatsby’s pier, the object represents the protagonist’s deepest wants and desires. But what exactly is it that our hero desires?
