The Answer Man, available on demand right now and in theaters this Friday, looks to be a romantic comedy that will play off of the strength of their ever-lovable cast. That includes the likes of Jeff Daniels, Kat Dennings, and Olivia Thirlby, but the one we're most interested in is the romantic interest of the flick, Lauren Graham. She won us over before The Answer Man with her heartwarming performance as Lorelai Gilmore through seven wonderful years of The Gilmore Girls… Erm, not that we watched that show or anything. We were watching… Um, Prison Break instead… Yeah, Prison Break. A word from Lauren: "These days I have to be extra nice in stores. It never fails that whenever I look as bad as I can possibly look or I am sort of cranky because the store is out of something, that is precisely the time when someone one will recognize me and say: 'I really like your show.'"She seems to be succeeding at looking extra nice in public, as evidenced by the photos of her that you can see after the jump!
BRONSON Trailer is CA-RAAAZYYYY! – Watch more Movie TrailersThe trailer for the independent flick BRONSON has hit the 'nets, and boy does it hit hard (and with a great soundtrack to accompany said pummeling, which is really the only way to pummel). It reminds me a little bit of TRAINSPOTTING in that way, only instead of heroin, the lead character is addicted to inflicting pain and stealing loot. The film is based on real life criminal and glutton for punishment Michael Peterson, who spent 34 years of his life behind bars, 28 of which were in solitary. The film's title comes from the nickname he adopted: Charles Bronson. As the real Charles Bronson said, "Audiences like to see the bad guys get their comeuppance." If that holds true, this should be one orgasmic audience pleaser.

Seems like 9 times out of 10, the headliner on a feature film comedy has his or her roots in the stand up comedy circuit. Think about the mega-bankable big…
What good is a horror film without its hot young starlets? No good, that's what it is. Luckily, The Collector, the new horror flick from Project Greenlight winners-turned-Saw scribes Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, has its bases covered in the category of beauties. Madeline Zima, best known as the Lolita-esque character Mia in the Showtime series Californication, stars in the film, which sounds like a mix between a heist film and the kooky violent traps found in all of the Saw flicks (there are about 15 of those now, right?). We're all hoping that she does not find her way into a bear trap-like device that threatens to rip her head off, as it is far too pretty for decapitation.A word from Madeline: "I'm a huge dork, trying to please all the wrong people."While we don't like to think of ourselves as "the wrong people," she's certainly pleasing to look at. Check out more hot photos of Madeline after the jump!
Director: Marcus DunstanCast: Madeline Zima, Andrea Roth, Josh StewartSynopsis: Desperate to repay his debt to his ex-wife, an ex-con plots a heist at his new employer's country home, unaware that a second criminal has also targeted the property, and rigged it with a series of deadly traps.
MYSTERY TEAM Trailer #2 – Watch more Movie Trailers The new trailer for international internet comedy sensation Derrick Comedy's Mystery Team is on the case, and color us intrigued. What is the color of intrigue, you ask? Good question, we answer. Then we avoid the subject entirely by not-so-tactfully changing it back to the film, which is "a dark comedy that follows the lives of three high school age friends who are still holding on to their Encyclopedia Brown-esque childhood detective club. Of course, their world is turned upside down when they are presented with a real, adult mystery." On the adult mystery scale, this looks funnier than "Murder She Wrote," but not quite on the level of a "Father Dowling Mysteries," which was hilarious because priests don't solve mysteries in their spare time! They're too busy covering up mysteries for their pedophile buddies.

Director: Dan EckmanCast: Donald Glover, D.C. Pierson, Dominic Dierkes, Aubrey Plaza, Matt WalshSynopsis: At age seven, Oakdale's Mystery Team was a band of kid detectives dedicated to solving child-sized mysteries (like who put their finger in the pie, and who stole the tricycle), and the town loved them for it. Now they're eighteen years old, about to graduate from high school, yet they're still storming the playground to bust little kids, and the town of Oakdale is sick to death of it.When a little girl sees their sign advertising "Mysteries Solved, Ten Cents," she asks the gang to find out who killed her parents. The Team embarks on a mystery that takes them deep into a violent conspiracy that sees their lives threatened, their friendship strained and tests their claim that they're "real detectives."

Judd Apatow has a knack for finding women that manage to be very funny and incredibly hot at the same time for his movies. For Funny People, he has found Aubrey Plaza, and up and coming actress and comedian who plays Seth Rogen's love interest in the film. She also stars on the small screen in NBC's Parks and Recreation. As a small side note, her Sarah Silverman impression is dead on.A word from Aubrey: "Wilmington is pretty small. There wasn't a ton to do there, but it definitely made me more creative because I had to kind of find my own thing to do, which is why I started making weird, funny videos."So growing up in a small and boring town is the secret to creating a hot and funny personality… Very interesting. Check out more photos of Aubrey after the jump!
Something's Wrong with Esther. That's the tagline for the film Orphan opening wide this Friday. Either it's just me, or there's been something wrong with a lot of kids at the cinema as of lately. It used to be we'd occasionally get an outstanding f*cked up youngster:But now it seems there's a flock of mediocre mini sociopaths running amoke on the silver screen. Have the parents in these films never heard of a child psychologist? Or a good punch to the temple? Both are effective for different reasons, but I can guarantee you that either method will get your demented offspring, or unfortunate adoption, to quit lighting your pets, houses, and better behaved children on fire. That is unless head shrinking and corporal punishment really pisses them off. Then you might just have to put them down for good.
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.

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.

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.
