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. But this is starting to sound more and more like a direct-to-DVD Heather Graham movie. (Latino Review)Links that won't make your bathing suit area tingle… The Final Destination "Rumble" in 3-D.

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.

The girls from The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard are back today, which means I am officially screwed on the title-related joke front. But that's alright, because today's girl, Kathryn Hahn, is funny all on her own. The talented comedienne has been a bit player in tons of comedies like Anchorman, Step Brothers, and… um, Reservation Road. That was supposed to be funny, right? On the small screen, she is well-known for her time on "Crossing Jordan," where her role Lily was created specifically for her by the show's creator, Tim Kring. I guess Kring saw that Kathryn had "The Goods." COUNT IT!A word from Kathryn: "To be worked into a show that was in production and on the schedule, is an amazing stroke of luck."It's not luck if you have the looks and humor on par with Ms. Hahn. (I struggled to not repeat "The Goods" joke just then; it's too easy) Check out more hot photos of Kathryn after the jump!
In honor of the very violent District 9 [Check out our review here] we'd like to salute the films where extra-terrestrials make first contact… upside yo' head (and then you die).

CLICK ON PHOTO TO SEE COMICPlayboy and Quentin Tarantino have teamed up to create a comic strip adaptation of a scene from Inglourious Basterds with reports that the director hand-picked and edited the piece. Here's the scene in the director's own words, "Okay, so. The Basterds come upon this Nazi and he's like this real bad Von Trapp-hating motherf&*%er, y'know? So. And then Brad Pitt's all like, 'Listen David Hasslehoff. I's Aldo Raines and I didn't come all the way to Germany for the strudel. We's in the Natzi-killin' business and we's here for your scalp.

GENTLEMEN BRONCOS Trailer – Watch more Movie TrailersGENTLEMAN BRONCOS looks to be a bizarre but good time. The third film from Jared and Jerusha Hess of NAPOLEON DYNAMITE and NACHO LIBRE fame sets its sights on home-schooled children and fantasy sci-fi authors this time around with a couple of very funny people in the cast. Which features flying Conchord Jemaine Clement as a dickish author who plagiarizes his young ward. Clement's Ronald Chevalier is the ultimate hack. His advice to his students is that one "can add '-ainous' to anything and it becomes magical." Remind me not to sample his beef stew. Check out these afternoon links.

While we gave her the nod in our hot female grifters feature, we felt Spread actress Margarita Levieva deserved her own gallery because, well, she's ridiculously good looking. The Russian-born beauty spent her early life as a competitive gymnast on the Communist Russia payroll before moving to New York at 11. There, she went to NYU and worked as a fashion buyer for Assets London (we don't know what that is either, but for now let's just assume it's something important). She's got few film credits to her name at this point, with her only notable role being that of Lisa P in the awesome Adventureland. However, she's hot and her name is the same as a delicious drink, so we feel she's going places.A word from Margarita: "I’m not an insecure person, per se, but I just never saw myself as the girl who walks into a place and everybody goes, ‘Wow.’"Rest assured, if she ever walked into the Screen Junkies offices, we would let out a collective wow. Then, we'd awkwardly stammer through directions to the office she should be in. It's obviously not ours. Check out more photos of Margarita after the jump!
If you’v taken a second to stop touching yourself to thoughts of seein DISTRICT 9 this weekend, you may have noticed that there’s another movie opening Friday called THE GOODS:…
Bryan Singer is in talks to bring a big screen version of Battlestar Galactica to theaters. Originally he was set to develop the television series reboot in 2001 but was c-blocked by the Taliban. The gig later went to Ron Moore and the rest is history. No word yet on the creative direction of the feature but let's hope it wraps up a little tighter than the new series did. I find it kind of odd that Universal is already rebooting a franchise that practically just completed its successful run. If this is the new norm, can we get a do-over on Transformers 2? (Hit Fix)Check out these morning links before they get remade…The Goods character posters are good. (Cinematical)Poltergeist remake actually coming to theaters. (/Film)New Dexter promo artwork.

LEGION Red-Band Trailer – Watch more MOVIE TRAILERSThe new red-band trailer for LEGION hit the nets today and it looks like a winner so far. Paul Bettany stars as a loose-cannon version of Michael the Archangel, who comes down to Earth against God's wishes in order to ensure the savior of humanity currently incubating in his mother's womb survives an onslaught of evil demons. Phew. It's like the Catholic church rewrote the script for TERMINATOR 2 and managed to keep the badassitude. If only the Bible had calculating-ass, glock-wielding angels and demon grandmas dropping F-bombs before tearing off people's faces, maybe I would have stayed Catholic. Maybe after Monopoly, Candyland and Battleship, a studio can give the Bible a much needed cinematic update (with a cameo from Brendan Fraser and music by Kid Rock, of course.)Here are your decidedly most unholy links of the day: Ashley Smith Appears To Not Own A Bathing Suit (Gorillamask)How To Get A Bartender's Attention (Holytaco)Neverending Story Van Lady Vs.
