Empire has released a picture from the set of Avatar featuring James Cameron and his boom-stick. We're not quite sure what context the photo was taken in. Perhaps he's setting up a shot for his crew or perhaps he's protecting his final cut clause and keeping studio execs at bay. Or… perhaps… THIS IS CGI. OMG it looks so life-like you guys!Empty a clip into these morning links…Coen Brothers serious new movie trailer. (FilmDrunk)The Frenchal Destination poster looks like a Dean Koontz book cover.

A brand new red-band trailer for the Will Ferrell & Adam McKay-produced, Jeremy Piven-starring THE GOODS: LIVE HARD. SELL HARD has arrived on the nets and, boy of boy does she have a f**king mouth on her. I use the feminine to describe the trailer like one might describe a sailing vessel. But it also makes it a lot easier to segue into the fact that this trailer has problems keeping her shirt on. Yes, this one's got boobs aplenty on top of Piven and company's potty mouths. There's so much big, fake mammarage that I'm forced to put the trailer AFTER the jump, so as not to scar our younger audiences, who shouldn't be watching it in the first place.

To Whoever Shut Down The Halo Film:I had my sneaking suspicions before, but now I can safely say that you are all complete idiots. Let me make one thing clear: I have yet to actually read why you shut down the Peter Jackson-produced and Neill Blomkamp-directed adaptation of the popular video game franchise Halo. I believe I read at one point that it was something related to money. I find this funny, because it seems like if you had just made the movie, it would have made tons of money. More money than you could ever imagine…
Channing Tatum in RTÉ.ies Exclusive G.I. Joe- Rise of Cobra C – Watch more Funny Videos A new scene from G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra has appeared over at Coming Soon and it's generous to say that the movie looks like a steaming pile. First up, General Hawk approaches his shirtless soldiers to remind them (and us) that they are the best except for the "comic" relief guy (hint: the one that used to be on "In Living Color"). "You scored in the top half-percent of all people we ever tested." In all fairness, we only tested you two. From there it plays out like a flirtation scene from every Saved By The Bell episode. In this version, Duke is Zack, Rip is Slater, Scarlett is Jessie, and Dustin Diamond is still a poor man's Corey Feldman.These links will not urinate all over your childhood memories… Aida Iveliz Hangs Out At The Hot Tub (Gorillamask)Mike Vick's Prison Haikus (Holytaco)Ryan Gosling Fills Gas Can, Poses For Philanthropic Photo (Filmdrunk)25 Rare (And Awesome) Star Wars Photos (Manofest)Awesome 3D Robot Greeting Cards (Walyou)Ben Affleck Squares Off Against Jon Hamm (Pajiba)7 High Tech Products And Their Cheap Ingredients (Cracked)Madonna Might Have The Scariest Arms In The History Of Arms (Celebjihad)5 Gadgets To Make You Faster (Mademan)Josh Barnett Caught With Roids For Third Time (Cagepotato)Why Olivia Munn Is An Evil Genius (Unrealitymag)How To Buy Your Lady A Vibrator (Asylum)Spilled Beer = Death For Phillies Fans (Bustedcoverage)10 Mike Vick Signs That Should Be On Television This Season (Uncoached)Scoring Chicks At A Bar: Skill Or Simple Math?

Fellow Junkies, Comic-Con has come and gone, as has Screen Junkies from San Diego. It was our first ever trip down to Comic-Con and it will not be our last, but we learned a lot. Mostly, we learned that you have to surrender to the fact that you can't cover EVERYTHING at Comic-Con. Here's everything we DID cover: AVATAR Video clips of James Cameron speaking about AVATAR just moments after having unveiled 25-minutes of the film to Hall H @ Comic-Con.
EXTRACT Panel @ Comic-Con Pt. 1 – Watch Movie Trailers After the promising SOLOMON KANE presentation in Hall H, the crowd at Comic-Con was buzzing for geek legend Mike Judge to make a return to his OFFICE SPACE form with his latest flick, EXTRACT. He was joined on stage by cast members Jason Bateman and Mila Kunis, as well. Comedienne du jour Kristen Wiig could not make it because of filming commitments in New Mexico. To Bateman's credit, he was running on an hour's worth of sleep, having just wrapped on the same shoot at 5am, which, it's safe to say, is Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Greg Mottola's alien comedy PAUL…
Alright, I'll admit, when I think of what alien-themed Summer flick our reader's will appreciate hearing about, I don't jump to Aliens in the Attic, I think of District 9. However, having been lucky enough to have seen District 9 (review coming soon), I can note that the movie has a distinct lack of hot young Disney stars. Aliens in the Attic, on the other hand, has the beautiful Ashley Tisdale. The High School Musical actress seems to be keeping close to the kids movie/Disney path, so we can't expect to see her in any badass action films like District 9 just yet, but isn't her squeaky clean demeanor part of her appeal?A word from Ashley: "My agent didn`t want me on Disney because I`m older. But honestly, I`m not ready for older roles yet, or even the things older girls do. I am still young."Don't worry, we checked, and she's chronologically old enough for us to recommend that you check out more hot photos of Ashley after the jump!
Director: John Schultz Cast: Ashley Tisdale, Andy Richter, Kevin Nealon Synopsis: A group of kids must defend their vacation home from an alien invasion Genre: Comedy Release Date: July 31, 2009
Everyone's been talking – including us – about Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar's KICK-ASS as being the sleeper hit of Comic-Con 2009, but there's another film deserving of some geek love, and that's SOLOMON KANE, whose panel had the fortune of being sandwiched in between Saturday's LOST: THE FINAL SEASON and EXTRACT presentations in the San Diego Convention Center's imposing 6000+ seat Hall H…
Director: Michael J. BassettCast: James Purefoy, Pete Postlethwaite, Mackenzie Crook, Max von SydowSynopsis: The movie tells the origins of Solomon Kane and is hoped to be the first of a trilogy of movies. When the story opens Kane is a mercenary of Queen Elizabeth I fighting in Africa, but after an encounter with a demon, The Reaper, he realizes he must seek redemption or have his soul damned to Hell. He returns to England and lives a life of peace, converting to puritanism, but soon the doings of an evil sorcerer upset his plans and he must take up arms again.
A militant Palestinian group is angry about their portrayal in Brüno and are now threatening to kill Sacha Baron Cohen according to a report from the Times Online. Cohen is taking the threat seriously and has upped his security. In the film, his alter ego tells Mr. Abu Aita, a member of the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, that "Al-Qaeda is so 2001" and that "Osama looks like a kind of dirty wizard or homeless Santa.” I can understand Baron Cohen's fear but if I were him I would counter with the hard to refute statement, 'How about you don't?'Nothing threatening about these links… Family Guy episode aborted.

(Cinema Blend) Harrison Ford Facial Expression Generator. (Cracked)
Saw VI Sneak Peak – Watch more Movie TrailersThis popped up whilst we were at Comic-Con, so in case you missed it, here's the newest featurette for SAW VI. It's yet another one of Jigsaw's ingenious, Rube Goldberg-esque deathtraps, this time involving a bunch of medical insurance employees. Heed Jigsaw's warning, President Barack Obama! If you don't do something fast, a lot of American insurance workers are going to get ritualistically murdered.

However, when the FBI draws closer to Hoffman, he is forced to set a game into motion, and Jigsaw's grand scheme is finally understood.
Turns out Madeline Zima was only the tip of the ice berg that is hot women in the new horror-heist thriller The Collector. Today, we direct your attention to the lovely Andrea Roth. She's been a TV and film star for quite some time, most recently in a recurring role on the edgy (meaning it's on basic cable and they actually say "sh*t!") drama "Rescue Me." A word from Andrea: "When they were casting, Denis [Leary] was very specific that he didn't want any actors from L.A., and I was living in L.A. at the time."Yet she still got the part. Can you blame Denis Leary though? He would have been stupid not to cast her. Check out more hot photos of Andrea after the jump!
True Blood season 2 trailer Comic Con – Watch more Funny VideosThe producers of True Blood stopped by Comic-Con this past weekend with the trailer above in tow. It gives us a glimpse at the impending battle between the Dallas Vampires (not an XFL team) and the Light Of Day cult, Marianne's pursuit of Sam, strange bedfellows for Bill and Sookie, and a look at Evan Rachel Wood as the Vampire Queen. It looks like the show is finally ratcheting up the action this season. About time guys.Get your morning links here…Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis team up.

Most of the presentations at this year's Comic-Con were staged within the friendly confines of the San Diego Convention Center, and all the parties were held at various hotels downtown. But Twentieth Century Fox picked San Diego's Manchester Grand Hyatt as the venue for an evening with JENNIFER'S BODY, which included a screening, Q&A with cast and crew, and afterparty at the hotel's Kin Lounge. Screen Junkies was lucky enough to get the invite for all of the above, and we have the scoop – including more foxy pics of Fox – after the jump…
And I mean that in a good way. Denzel Washington walks the road and kicks some ass all in the name of a piece of literature. I only wish the last 30+ seconds of the trailer weren't dedicated to credits. Maybe we could get a peak at this mysterious book. My guess is The Book of Eli, the novel that could save all mankind, is just a fancy version of Everybody Poops.

The political comedy In The Loop brings back a familiar face that has been gone for far too long. There's a high probability that you'll remember Anna from her breakout role as Vada Sultenfuss in the classic My Girl, but after that there's nothing that really stands out. As it turns out, this is because she took a lengthy hiatus from acting to get educated by the University of Chicago. Now she's working her way back into the acting world, and we couldn't be happier. She certainly makes watching a political comedy sound endurable.A word from Anna: "They spoil you rotten. If you want a glass of milk, they run off to get you one."While that quote was in reference to her working as a child actress, I'm pretty sure that kind of stuff would have happened even if she wasn't a star, she's just that good looking. Check out more hot photos of Anna after the jump!
Director: Albert and Allen HughesCast: Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Mila KunisSynopsis: A post-apocalyptic tale, in which a lone man fights his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind.
Alls I gots ta say is… let's get Avatarded in here! We just got out of the AVATAR press conference with none other than James Cameron, and raced back to a quiet place so we could squeal like schoolgirls… and upload these videos of the visionary director talking earnestly about his project. The huge news revealed today is that on August 21st – "Avatar Day" – select movie theaters and online outlets will be screening 15 minutes of the film for FREE. That's how confident Twentieth Century Fox and Cameron must be about their product. In fact, rumor has it that Fox head Tom Rothman cried like a baby during the screening in the San Diego Convention Center's Hall H*. * Not true. So settle in and enjoy Mr. Cameron wax on about his little movie. PART 1: Cameron on the film's character design.
There might be something wrong with Esther in the new movie Orphan, opening this week, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with actress Vera Farmiga. She plays the adopted mother of the titular orphan in the movie, even though she looks way too hot to be a mom. As it turns out, she is almost about to have a baby in real life, completely shattering my concept of what a "mom" is supposed to look like. Basically, what I'm trying to get at, is that she's really ridiculously good-looking. Almost good looking enough to make Orphan look like it's worth watching. However, after the Ring debacle of 2003 where I developed a massive fear of small creepy kids, I've learned to stay away from these types of movies.A word from Vera: "There are some times when I think acting can be a noble profession."Not sure if those "noble" times include doing intense sex scenes in The Departed and Running Scared, but I'm sure viewers appreciated them none the less. Check out more hot photos of Vera after the jump!
The poster for Shutter Island was just released and boy is it creeeeepy. If matches are Leo DiCaprio's only source of light on that island it's going to be a very dimly lit film. He's going to spend half the movie striking match heads on the back of matchbooks. And you know they don't always light the first time, so he'll probably get frustrated and throw the matchbook in a puddle, and then where will he be.

Dare I say Tim Burton is back? Did he ever leave? You could argue either way, but there's no arguing that his ALICE IN WONDERLAND looks like a winner.
