Though he’s played a wide variety of roles over the course of his career, and is set to play the hardboiled John Dillinger in the upcoming Public Enemies, Johnny Depp has shown himself to be an actor of idiosyncratic but undeniably odd taste in roles. Oh sure, he can do the Oscar-winning drama just as well as anybody (Finding Neverland, Donnie Brasco), but he just can’t seem to stay away from roles that send shivers down people’s spine or cause audiences to say, “WTF?” (Or for that matter make movies these days that don’t have Tim Burton’s name attached to them.)
Well, leave it to Japanese engineers to have figured this one out. Somebody done gone and built a real life Gundam robot. And over the past couple weeks, several pics and clips of the life-size replica that actually moves have shown up. Well now, according to Aint It Cool, another team is constructing a life-size replica of GIGANTOR, the beloved Japanese animated hunk o' sentient metal that debuted in the '50s. The question now isn't if, but how many fanboys will be visiting Japan this year in hopes of being the one whose love for the robots is so strong, it brings them to actual life and in search of an overweight bespectacled introvert to be their friend… and a parents' basement… to call home.Here are today's Gundam-sized Links: Camille Holbrook Walks Through Forest, Disrobes (Gorillamask) The Guido Beach Of Yesteryear (Filmdrunk) The 10 Absolute Worst Movie Trailers Of All Time (Manofest) Very Intricate Carboard Technology Recreations.

I'm speculating here, but one thing I can tell you guys with 100% confidence is that a trusted source of mine recently was accosted in a bar by someone who claimed to have just worked on a shoot for Ghostbusters 3 in the Windy City. Apparently the scene involved an actress being "slimed," and that was all they got out before coming to their senses about what's probably sensitive information. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that I think we'll be seeing a teaser trailer of some sort for Ghostbusters 3 at this year's Comic-Con. The timing is right. There were rumors it would start shooting this Fall anyway. Come late July, don't be surprised about reports from giddy bloggers, journalists and fans recounting their experience of a brand new on-screen, live-action sliming leading into Ray Parker Jr.'s iconic '80s theme. We can dream, can't we? To hold you over until this hypothetical event, check out the trailer for Ghostbuster starring Ernie Hudson after the jump.
Director: Dunno. Supposed to be be Harold Ramis. Cast: Dunno. (But supposed to be the original cast)Synopsis: Dunno.

The Public Enemies depression-era babes keep a-comin'. We've already shown two of the film's lovely ladies, Marion Cotillard and Emilie De Ravin, now it's time for a beauty with a decidedly strange name: Leelee Sobieski. Although, that's not her real name; her full name is Liliane Rudabet Gloria Elsveta Sobieski… I think we'll stick with Leelee. She plays Polly Hamilton, one of Dillinger's numerous lady friends in the flick. Her work includes films with masterful directors (Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut) and masterful act–… Wait, sorry, no, insane actors (Nic Cage in The Wicker Man).A Word From Leelee: “If only I could find a guy who wasn't in his 70s to talk to me about white cranes, I'd be madly in love.”On that note, we'll be looking up the Wikipedia page for white cranes, and then trying to Google Leelee's address. In the meantime, check out hot photos of Leelee after the jump.
THE INFORMANT Trailer – Watch more Movie TrailersI normally hate movies with clueless protagonists, and this new one from Steven Soderbergh looks like it's got a doozy. BUT… I might be making an exception, because darned if Matt Damon's character, Mark Whitacre, isn't try his best not to suck. In The Informant, Damon plays a corporate suit who becomes – you guesed it – an informant for the FBI. Based on a true story, the real Whitacre remains the highest level executive in U.S. history to turn into a whistleblower. I think this one has a happier ending than that other whistleblower movie The Insider. And I'm basing that entirely on the fact that this has an upbeat song from the Eurythmics in the trailer. If you don't know the Eurythmic, they're a band from the '80s and '90s, which is when this movie takes place. I'm basing that assessment entirely on the style of mustaches worn by some of the actors.

On Monday we showcased the French dish that is Public Enemies' starlet Marion Cotillard. But she's not the only babe we think is the bee's knees in Michael Mann's old timey gangster pick-chaaa. Meet Emilie de Ravin, who plays Barbara Patzke, a bank teller taken hostage by John Dillinger and company in one of their Illinois heists. You may remember her from Rian Johnson's cult hit Brick, but she's perhaps more known for her role as Claire Littleton, the Aussie baby mama on "Lost." A Word From Emilie: "Becoming a prima ballerina requires a lot of work." Pfffft. So is putting up a picture gallery of YOU, Emilie! Just ask our intern, Spencer. You can check out his handiwork after the jump. And don't forget you can see Emilie starting today in Public Enemies!
In honor of Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs opening this weekend, we decided to feature a picture gallery of sexy cavewomen wearing skimpy loincloths. You might interject, "ScreenJunkies, despite what the Flinstones depicts, humans weren't around during the time of the dinosaurs!" to which we'd respond – and haughtily, we might add – "Would you rather see a gallery of wooly mammoth ass?" Above: Queen Latifah telling us to "Talk to the trunk."If you answered "yes" then you're into Furries and should be reading Holy Taco. If you answered "no" then get get ready for some B.C. T&A.
WATCHMEN Blu-Ray Clip in MAXIMUM MOVIE MODE – Watch more Funny Videos Above is a clip of the "Maximum Movie Mode" way of watching Watchmen when it comes to Blu-Ray on July 21st. As long as you're a Zach Snyder enthusiast, it looks like a pretty kickass feature, as the director literally gives a direct presentation during the film. Snyder's sorta like Al Gore if he worked out and used a camera to no-touch fondle Malin Akerman. Of course, what Warner Bros. home video isn't admitting is that, while this technology has certainly improved… it wasn't the first time Maximum Movie Mode was used. Nay, atribute that to R. Kelly's über-meta commentary for his piece de resistance, "Trapped in the Closet." "See, now I'm in the closet," says R. Kelly seated on the couch watching the picture in picture of R. Kelly in the film singing, "I'm trapped in the closet." Groove to it after the jump:

Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind.
Where You've Seen Her: The très, trés French starlet Marion Cotillard doesn't have a ton of American flicks under her ceinture just yet, but she's already won a Best Actress Oscar for her performance as chanteuse Edith Piaf in 2007's La Vie En Rose. In Public Enemies, she plays Billie Frechette, John Dillinger's (Johnny Depp) lady friend. Look for her in The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan's upcoming mega-budgeted sci-fi Inception, where she'll be one of the more reasonably priced special effects. A Word From Marion: My parents always told me that if you want something, you can do whatever you have to do to get it. As long as it's not against someone else. Check out the hot photos of Marion "Fair Play" Cotillard after the jump:
ARMAGEDDON FTW! – Watch more Funny Videos It was a wild ride full of BANGs, POPs, BOOMs, KAPOWs, and several WHOOSHes, but once all the proverbial dust settled the asteroid with a mission to send earth back to the dark ages took the prize.

This week, we've covered the Transformers from about every possible angle – except their nether regions, because Bay has that covered. But there's another film starting today that deserves far more asses in seats than Bay's bombastic sequel. I'm talking about THE HURT LOCKER, which – if you couldn't tell from the pull quote above – Screenjunkies thinks is just about the tensest movie that's come out since NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN.
Welcome to the final day of BAYWATCH '09. To recap, we've revisited Bay's Best Music Videos, Pitted Bay's Explosions against one another in the Bracket of Boom, ogled his "Baybes" and collected emails from his personal account. For the last day, we're getting inside the man's head. Strap on your safety goggles and flak jackets. By Ian Sobel

Well lookee what we got here, boys! Last round, the asteroid rocked the The Rock's missile and the Giant F**king Robot 'splodin' the bus beat out the combustible mansion. Even Michael Bay, with his infinite wisdom and soothsaying powers, told us in a conversation that didn’t really happen that he was literally BLOWN AWAY by the results. Now we're down to the Big Boom and the tension is so palpable you could masticate it like a big ol' bag of Big League Chew. THE FINAL MATCHUP
It's Day 4 of BAYWATCH '09. Transformers Revenge of the Fallen has opened to huge numbers as expected, and we've given you the Michael Bay goods in the form of a Music Video Retrospective, an Explosions Tourney pitting the best Bay BOOMs against each other, and a giant gallery of Michael Bay's Babes. Now it's time for a look at the more personal, introspective side of the man…
THE BOX Trailer – Watch more Funny Videos Above is the new trailer for the not-so-new-but-unreleased The Box, starring Cameron Diaz, James Marsden as a young, innocent couple from The South and Frank Langella as a devilish man who presents the couple with a big red button that, when pressed, kills a random stranger. Why, pray tell, would one want to push a button that kills someone? Well because the pusher is rewarded with an attaché case full of money. This is either the dumbest idea for a horror movie or the best Staples commercial in the history of the brand.

By Spencer Vickers I am 80% convinced that Michael Bay did not give a sweet sh*t about the first hour and twenty minutes of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. What occupies that part of the highly anticipated summer flick is about as dumbed down as you would expect from a film that is brought to you by a toy company (I would like to point out that my previous comment was by no means meant as an attack on Hasbro, for without them my childhood would have been severely depressing). At points the film even borders on offensive (and not the good kind of offensive).
