Being hailed as this year's breakout Sundance hit, 500 Days of Summer opens in limited release this weekend. While I cannot attest to whether or not it's a breakout Sundance hit, I can confirm that it is a breakout reason to see Zooey Deschanel act adorable on a giant movie screen. Although, to be fair, every movie she is in counts as one of those. From small parts in films like Almost Famous to a romantic lead in the holiday classic Elf, she's been every indie nerd's dream for quite a while (she even has a respectable indie band, for goodness sakes!). She even made The Happening bearable!… well, ok, she actually didn't, but it's not like she hurt the already awful movie or anything.A word from Zooey: "I don't really like to go out very much. I'm not scandalous. I'm not, like, in this to be famous. I also find it so embarrassing when you read about people and it's like they were so trashed at Skybar and stumbling around. I don't want to be that person. That's just so embarrassing to have that written about you."…And that's exactly why you're awesome, Zooey. Check out more non-scandalous, albeit very pretty, photos of her after the jump!
I love a good unofficial poster. They're almost always a lot cooler than the the authorized versions. And the collector in me likes the whole limited edition-ness of them, too. I know that my signed "Dwight Yoakam live at the Wiltern Theater 2007" poster will one day be worth at least $7 to someone. And I only paid $15 for it. That's called smart investing.Speaking of smart investing and nerdery, Screen Junkies is headed to Comic-Con for the first time ever this year, and it brings me great pleasure to show you the above special edition Kick-Ass poster designed exclusively for Comic-Con 2009 by artist John Romita Jr. He's the artist behind the original Kick-Ass comic book series, on which Matthew Vaughn's film is based. I once met Mr. Romita Jr. and he signed my copy of Ghost Rider, Punisher, Wolverine: Hearts of Darkness AND Cable #1. I still have both issues. I still have a lot of issues from the early '90s. Like painful self-loathing.Here are your kickass weekend links:Amber Marie Mekush On The Beach (Gorillamask)Open Letters To Annoying People (Holytaco)Judd Apatow Interviews Adam Sandler (Filmdrunk)The 69 Sexiest Women Dressed As Wonder Woman (Manofest)Star Wars Themed Battleship!

SHERLOCK HOLMES International Trailer – Watch more Movie Trailers The new international trailer for Guy Ritchie's SHERLOCK HOLMES has hit the nets today. It's got a couple new glimpses of the film that the domestic trailer didn't have, including the end "button" in which Jude Law, as Watson, shows he's much more a man of action than words. Watson subscribes to the same tough guy philosophy as Mike Tyson, minus the rape part, which they really seemed to gloss over in THE HANGOVER. Don't know why. Oh, that's right. Because it was a comedy.

The Harry Potter franchise offered a unique experience to movie-goers in the sense that they got to see half of the cast grow up on the silver screen. This made it slightly confusing when the women became more attractive as they got older, making the viewer ask "is she legal?" followed by the usual guilt and shame for even asking the question. Well, lucky for you, the Screen Junkies have your back. Bonnie Wright, who plays Ginny Weasley, is now absolutely legal! Now we can all feel slightly less morally reprehensible while ogling her during The Half-Blood Prince.A Word From Bonnie: "I'm interested in doing more things because I think it'd be interesting to get a new challenge. But I've got my exams coming up and it's quite hard to fit everything in."While Bonnie prepares for exams, you can check out more hot (and legal!) photos of her after the jump!
It's no secret that Funny People has taken the meta "movie-within-a-movie" concept and run with it for miles. They've made clips like "Yo Teach!" (Jason Schwartzman) and the comic stylings of "Raaaaaaandy!" (Aziz Ansari) part of their potent viral marketing attack. And today, Judd Apatow, writer-director of Funny People, wrote a guest post on MTV Movies Blog, in which he describes some of the fake movies within the movie… that didn't make it into the movie (not for lack of funny).
WHIP IT Trailer #1 – Watch more Movie Trailers The new trailer for the Drew Barrymore-directed Whip It movie has hit the 'nets. It stars lil' Ellen Page as a girl who's looking for meaning in her life and finds it when she joins a team of badass rollergirl chicks, including Kristen Wiig, Eve, Juliette Lewis and Barrymore herself. Sort of a Footloose meets Dodgeball meets Xanadu, if that makes any sense at all (and it barely does to us). But if you've ever seen the Austin, Texas-based Rollergirls, who have their own show on A&E, you know this roller derby stuff is pretty serious. It's like a pack of Shawne Merrimans on wheels and on their periods. Okay I think I just threw up.

Disney's G-Force has pulled off an interesting trick that made me want to see it: they cast Zach Galifianakis in it. While that prospect is interesting, the trick they pulled that will make me definitely see it is casting Kelli Garner. The gorgeous blonde is taking a step away from her usual film-type of indie dramas such as Lars and the Real Girl to entertain children with the help of guinea pigs. That, or she's helping to entertain the adults who are forced to take their children to a movie about guinea pigs.A word from Kelli: "OK, sure, I have a body. I've had one since I was 16. But the attention it brings me, in life as well as in the industry, makes me really uncomfortable."…That makes this next part kind of awkward. Check out more pictures of Kelli's hot body after the jump!
This week, Disney's latest action film G-Force opens. It's the story of an elite team of Guinea Pigs – voiced by the likes of Nic Cage, Penelope Cruz, Sam Rockwell & Tracy Morgan – dispatched to stop a billionaire (Bill Nighy) from taking over the world with diabolical household appliances. And it's no government secret that cute Guinea Pigs plus tiny weaponry is a formula for Disney to sell the crap out of toys to boys and girls alike. Toys like these "Darwin" and "Hurley" action figures are only the beginning.

According to Twitch, who premiered the clip above, Treevenge is follow-up short film from the creative team that produced & directed Hobo with a Shotgun. While this sadly has no hobos or shotguns, it's nonetheless full of gore – the kind of gore that Al Gore probably had in mind every time he eked out a smile during his Inconvenient Truth presentation. More specifically, Treevenge is about trees getting their revenge on humans for chopping them down (hence the clever portmanteau in the film's title). Next time you wipe your ass with toilet paper, take a second to think about the tree that had to die so you don't get sh*t all over your pants, you savage!

Director: Jason EisenerSynopsis: Treevenge is a short film detailing the experiences and horrifying reality of the lives of Christmas trees. Clearly, for trees, Christmas isn’t the exciting “peace on earth” that is experienced by most. After being hacked down, and shipped away from their homes, they quickly become strung up, screwed into an upright position for all to see, exposed in a humiliation of garish decorations. But this Christmas will be different, this Christmas the trees have had enough, this Christmas the trees will fight back. Treevenge could be a short film about the end of days for Christmas trees, or perhaps, the end of humanity?
Throughout the ages, enchanting babes with supernatural powers have come and gone, but a few exceptional ones have stuck out in our memory. This list is a tribute to fifteen of Screen Junkies' favorite magical, sexy ladies and the spells they put on us. 15. Cheras Alexandra Medford in The Witches of Eastwick (1987)Cher may be a hell of a singer, if not always the best actress, but in this 80’s magical movie she got to show off her hots, received a significantly larger role than she normally did in her films, and showed what a sexy magical babe she could be. That's her on the left of the Eastwick poster if you didn't already know.
Like many Watchmen fans, I have mixed feelings about its big screen adaptation. I appreciate it for what it is. The attention to aesthetic detail is certainly amazing and the sheer spectacle of it all is on a larger scale than any of its comic book film predecessors. But it just seems to lack the heart and fear that were so present in the book partly because the supporting characters are essentially non-characters. I held out the hope that the Director's Cut would capture more of the magic from the illustrated page. And it looks like I was right! Here is a deleted scene where the original Nite Owl attempts to fend off paranoid attackers in his home. Things don't pan out very well for the old timer but it is a beautifully put-together scene nonetheless and one that definitely should have been included in the theatrical run. You can pick up the Director's Cut on DVD and Blu Ray on July 21st. Or you can wait a few months for the 5-disc Ultimate Edition.

JENNIFERS BODY SFW Trailer – Watch more Movie TrailersOn Monday, we posted ShockTilYouDrop's Red Band trailer for Jennifer's Body, and today, the theatrical trailer was released online. This one's noticeably tamer and free of Diablo Cody's trademark "Diablogue" like the soon-to-be-meme, "Smells like Thai food in here. Were you guys f**king?" We're guessing if Fox had allowed a permutation of that line in thisSFW version, it would go something like, "Smells like Thai food in here.

Friday marks the release of two "major" films, and both of them star celebrities who have lusted after Milo Ventimiglia. I Love You, Beth Cooper tells the story of an unrequited high school crush. Brüno tells the story of… well, you’ve seen Borat right? It's like that, but with different accents and a lot more butt sex jokes. But here we are in the middle of July with not a single cat fight. Even Mariah Carey is playing nice with Janet Jackson! So, we went ahead and charted out the Diva War, blow by blow, to determine who'll be box office champion of the weekend! Actually, it's pretty obvious Brüno's gonna sweep the floor with Hayden's alabaster locks, but let's give each side a fair shake.Here you are, the scientific breakdown of each person’s worth (sums it up well):
In the trailer for I Love You, Beth Cooper, someone whispers about the arrival of "The Trinity." We've already covered one third of these lovely ladies, Lauren London, and we have faith that you can find photos of Hayden Panettiere on your own. That leaves us with Lauren Storm, the final piece of the puzzle. She's mostly done TV up to this point, with roles on "Malcom In The Middle," "24," and "Flight 29 Down," but this could prove to be her breakthrough into mainstream movies. At least we hope so. She also is owner of the funniest IMDB trivia section ever, which simply reads: "Jewish."A word from Lauren: "I don't watch a whole lot of TV, but when I have time I watch a lot of HBO. I think they have really good quality television. And I think they have really well made products."While Lauren is angling to get a job on an HBO show, you can check out hot photos of her. After the jump, of course!
You remember the little girl from Remember The Titans? Yes you do. Don't you sit there and lie to me. You know damn well you watched that movie and said to yourself, "That girl is gonna be hot someday." Then you said, "Is that weird of me to say that? Does that make me a pedophile?" And the answer is," Don't look now, but Chris Hansen is standing behind you."Regardless of your deviance, we can all agree that Hayden grew up from this…All the way into this very attractive and very legal woman. In honor of Miss Panettiere starring in I Love You, Beth Cooper this Friday, let's follow her career path starting with her breakout role and see how Hayden's… ahem… developed. "HEROES"
Seems we have a hankerin' for purée de ballsack today, because this 8-minute clip from The Hurt Locker popped up on Hulu not too long ago and we couldn't resist posting it. If you haven't read our review of the film – currently in limited release – AND you enjoy verbal fellation, bone up here. The above opening scene sets the anything-goes tone but doesn't quite do the theatrical experience justice. Word to the wise, should you decide to see The Hurt Locker at the cinema, you'll need to make sure your underpants have their own pocket organizer so they can pencil in a reminder about their inevitable meeting with a Mr. Poop Fromyourbutt. He took several meetings with various pairs of undergarments in my screening.

It's like they put Signs, Iron Man, and Slumdog Millionaire into a blender but instead of setting to "Blend" they went straight to "Purée Your Balls Awesome." And now my balls are but a frothy soup.
