We're entering the dog days of summer and that means one thing, horror movie season is about to begin. Between now and late October we'll see a slew of horror flicks all featuring sweet young ladies alone in the dark. Here's a look at twelve actresses that we think have promising futures as Scream Queens… and a survey after that to determine who you guys think will rule the kingdom of horror for years to come.
At any given time Twentieth Century Fox has at least four X-Men movies in development. As of right now they are working on a Wolverine sequel, a Deadpool spin-off, How The Blob Got His Groove Back, Yo, Juggernaut!, X-Men: First Class, and the long-rumored X-Men Origins: Magneto. Now MTV caught up with David Goyer and he mentioned that things may be moving forward with the tale of a young Magneto. He also noted that the studio is interested in bringing more Origins to the screen. This doesn't sit well with me for fear of X over-exposure. Why must Fox run everything into the ground? My only requests are that they are careful when choosing directors and no matter what, no matter how tempting it may be. Do not cast any more Black Eyed Peas.These links won't funk with your heart… Hancock 2: Hancockier. (Empire)Mila Kunis dashes our hopes and dreams.

The new teaser trailer for INCEPTION, Christopher Nolan's follow-up to THE DARK KNIGHT, has hit the 'nets today after playing in front of INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS (for some of us). Being that it's a teaser and all, we don't get much in the ways of plot, but we do get to see how Nolan's toying with gravity and balance, which is the same thing that a giant bowl of unfiltered sake on a Friday night in L.A.'s Koreatown will toy with as well. But only one of these things will end with a karaoke rendition of Sisqo's "The Thong Song." Had Brett Ratner directed INCEPTION, things might be different. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Scout Taylor-Compton is back as Laurie Strode in Halloween II this Friday, and we have a feeling that Michael Myers is going to be pretty pissed about that. Scout did a great job portraying an ungrateful little sister in the first, what's that bullsh*t industry term again? Oh yes, "reimagining." And we're sure she'll have even more opportunities in the "reimagined sequel" to show her homicidal older brother just how much she hates his company. A word from Scout: "Howie Mandel is hilarious. He’s funny even when he’s not trying. I mean he could be talking about a Hershey bar and it would crack you up." You don't have to tell us that, Scout. We've watched Little Monsters so many times the VHS tape is worn out. So now we have plenty of time to ogle more pics of you after the jump!
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, and the self-absorbed Baby Boomer nostalgia surrounding this “milestone” is enough to make the ghost of John Bonham vomit. To hear it described now, Woodstock was an event of biblical proportions where, somehow, almost a half-million people came together and peacefully co-existed…for three whole days! I’d like to point out that this happens everyday in Kansas City, MO, except with running water and an adequate amount of toilets. In an attempt to cash in on the anniversary, Universal Pictures is releasing Taking Woodstock, a film that chronicles the origins of this overrated historical footnote. Instead of watching this pandering nostalgia porn, I’ll be dropping acid (starting now) and watching these 5 Hippie Movies That Don’t Suck. Now, I should warn you that my landlord’s dog thinks I missed the point of most of these movies, but I think he’s just jealous because my baseball cap turned out to be rainbows. Oh God. STOP SHOUTING!
Steven Seagal- Lawman- Coming Soon – Watch more Funny VideosThe gods have been kind to us today. Here we have a first look at the new A&E reality series Steven Seagal: Lawman. Now that he's run out of C-Level rappers to co-star with, Seagal has been moonlighting with a New Orleans Sheriff's Department between film roles. And this fall we get to go on a ride along. Although the show is probably heavily staged, it's still more exciting than the alternative idea they were tossing around, Steven Seagal: Catsitter. You can take these links to the bank.

YOUTH IN REVOLT Trailer – Watch more Funny VideosI knew he had it in him. I knew it! FINALLY, Michael Cera stars in a movie and… plays a different character than the one he's been playing in every movie prior. The above trailer from YOUTH IN REVOLT proves it. And not only does Cera play another character, but he plays TWO characters who interact with each other. Look out, Hollywood! I can see it now! Billboards touting Cera as "the white Eddie Murphy!"

We couldn't be happier about the fact that adorable Alexis Bledel is coming to us as a Post Grad today. She's graduated from Gilmore Girls and is finally taking on roles opposite Michael Keaton. Her innocense intrigues us. In the dark recesses of our imagination we're hoping that Keaton had a conversation with Alexis on set and convinced her that as her next endeavor she should play a woman who's an exotic dancer by day and a stripper by night. It'll be a complex character study, but it's good for an actress to go against type. A word from Alexis: "For some unknown reason, bad-boys draw you in despite the fact that they are jerks."If watching NSFW videos and stealing Post-Its from the supply room is what Alexis considers bad, then she can hop on the back of our Vespa and hold on while we haul ass to Dairy Queen. Enjoy your Blizzard and check out more pics of Alexis after the jump!
It was announced recently that Mila Kunis would be joining Natalie Portman in Darren Arofonsky's upcoming ballet thriller Black Swan. Now it's being reported that she'll really be 'joining' her if you catch my drift. I'm talking about sex you guys.A script review from Script Shadow states:[I]n this movie, Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis have sex…And not just nice sweet innocent sex either. We’re talking ecstasy-induced hungry aggressive angry sex.Well, that sounds nice and I don't want to rain on anyone's parade here.

Intruder in the Senior Sorority Showers – Watch more Sorority RowHere's a NSFW clip from the film Sorority Row that offers all the things you'd expect in a horror movie shower scene. If you enjoy bitchiness, boobies, and blood, you're going to be pleasantly satisfied. I do have one thing to say though to the owner of the boobies in this clip: Get off your high horse, honey. I've seen better. Sorority Row opens wide Friday, September 11th
Director: Stewert Hendler Cast: Briana Evigan, Leah Pipes, Rumer Willis, Jamie Chung, Margo HarshmanSynopsis: A group of sorority sisters try to cover up the death of their house-sister after a prank gone wrong, only to be stalked by a serial killer.
The Wolfman Trailer – Watch more Movie TrailersThe new trailer for Universal's big budget remake of The Wolf Man had to go head-to-head with James Cameron's cinematic second coming, Avatar (marvel at that film's trailer here), but some in the Twitterverse have already crowned the hirsute Benicio Del Toro vehicle today's coming attractions champ. Judge for yourself in the clip above. It's kinda cool seeing Del Toro donning the fur and fangs, and the man's come a long way from the speech-impeded "Fenster" in The Usual Suspects. Rumor is fellow Suspects castmate Stephen Baldwin is in talks to play the Creature from the Black Lagoon. He'll be at Universal Studios Hollywood on Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 12pm to close, and will make party appearances, but not in costume.

Melanie Laurent is the second Inglourious Basterds dame of the week, and it's nice to have some Parisian je-ne-sais-quoi accompanying our German ich-weiß-nicht-was. In the film, Melanie's character Shoshanna Dreyfus is out for revenge via spilled Nazi Blood, and she's not afraid to weild an ax to get it. Looks and she can chop firewood. Talk about a double threat! A word from Melanie: "Cause I never took theater lessons, for example. I just made movies. So I have very—and I’m French. We are lazy!"Hey, Melanie, we're lazy, too! Let's lay around in bed all day, drink espresso, and eat crepes off of each other. Post a message if you're down. And why don't you check out some sexy pics of yourself while you're here! Everyone else can look, too!
Nerd pants everywhere have tightened past the point of no return as James Cameron has unleashed a teaser trailer for his fantasy / sci-fi opus AVATAR upon the population. In the spot we catch glimpses of Sam Worthington's injured Marine gettin' Avatarded and interacting with the indigenous residents of Pandora. The digital-imaging effects really do look amazing. We haven't seen character design this revolutionary since Small Soldiers or Jak and Daxter.
Megan wants a murderer. And so do authorities. Ryan Jenkins, a contestant on VH1's hit reality show Megan Wants A Millionaire, is a person of interest in the murder investigation of his ex-wife, Jasmine Fiore. Fiore, a Playboy model, was found stuffed in a suitcase inside a L.A. dumpster on Saturday. Jenkins is believed to be on the run. Either that or he's now competing on The Amazing Race.

Nearly a month ago on a balmy July day at San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that August 21st, 2009 would forever be known as AVATAR Day™. What exactly is AVATAR Day™? Much like Haley's Comet, AVATAR Day™ only comes around once in a lifetime and is the day that the proud filmmaker will hold an advance-screening of 16 minutes from his epic in more than 100 IMAX 3-D theaters around the world. Fans got so excited that they crashed the film's official website in an effort to reserve tickets. With expectations so high and so many movie-goers eager to catch a glimpse of the alien world Pandora, 20th Century Fox would be wise to take safety precautions.Here's what we think a safety manual for surviving AVATAR should look like:
CHUD was the first to point out that sexy model-actress Diora Baird has announced via Twitter that she has auditioned for a role in the upcoming Thor film. No one is certain which role she read for or if she'll even get the part but it's a slow news morning so conjecture like this makes headlines. Honestly.

Since 1984, the fine people at the Criterion Collection have been dedicated to gathering the greatest films from around the world and publishing them in highest possible quality. But despite their valiant efforts, some important films are still missing from the collection. Luckily, some ingenious folks over at the Jinx World Forums have taken it upon themselves to create distinctive, Criterion-style box covers for those films that have been overlooked. Here are 12 of our favorites in no particular order. Our list is by no means definitive or comprehensive, so head over to Jinx World and take a look for yourselves. Transformers Posted by Cth
By now we've all seen the official pictures of Mickey Rourke dressed as Whiplash at the racetrack in Iron Man 2. You know, the one's where he looks like a Steampunk Harvey Keitel? Well, it's believed that those are images of Whiplash in his prototype Mark I suit. Fans have been abuzz about what the Russian baddie will look like in his final armor ever since. Now the upcoming Marvel comic series IRON MAN VS. WHIPLASH may have revealed what Rourke's look will be when he squares off against Tony Stark and War Machine in the final act of the film. Here's the image from the book:Not bad. If this truly is the film's final armor, he's gone from looking like a He-Man villain to a Thundercats villain. Upgrade.

She loves to kill Nazis.
Just about everybody enjoys watching a goose-stepping kraut get his head blown off… Whites & blacks, Christians and Jews, liberals and conservatives; hell, even hardcore racists can find things to hate about the tenets of National Socialism (although say what you will, at least it’s an ethos).So, in honor of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, we here at Screen Junkies have complied the Top Ten Nazi Killing Movies of all time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this list of films that are guaranteed to put those filthy Huns where they belong: in the ground.
You may remember that back in July we alerted you to RoboGeisha, the only film brave enough to broach the subject of stabbing people in the eyes with shrimp tempura. Noboru Iguchi's crazy Geishsploitation splatterfest is back with a second trailer and the awesome poster above. This movie just looks better and better all the time. Not only do the Geishas rock out to bad Paul McCartney covers but they can also continue to battle despite being sliced in two. Let's see Tony Jaa pull that off.

LAW ABIDING CITIZEN Trailer – Watch more Movie Trailers Why is it that criminals always manage to kidnap or kill the family members of trained killers? Have they not seen TAKEN? Crap, even Kevin Bacon, the "mild-mannered" executive in DEATH SENTENCE managed to get pissed enough to come back and kill off the ne'er do wells who murdered his kid. (Okay, criminals, you get a pass on that one. No one saw DEATH SENTENCE.) But now we have LAW ABIDING CITIZEN, which stars Gerard Butler as a family man whose – gasp – wife and daughter are killed by criminals, and Jamie Foxx as the prosecutor who is forced into giving the bad guys a light sentence. But here's the twist: Butler's character goes out for revenge SAW-style, and becomes the film's villain… while Foxx has to clean up the mess. I don't know about you, but I have trouble buying Butler as someone to root against, at least based on this trailer. Then again, I'm still waiting for Pixar to come out with their dog revenge fantasy where Dug from UP violently picks off Michael Vick and his cronies one by one after finding out Vick just got reinstated in the NFL.
