Joe Carnahan's directing style (blowing things up punctuated by a character saying, "BOOM!," punctuated by boobs) has foolishly drawn the pity of Mr. T. The original B.A. Baracus saw an advance screening of The A-Team remake and was shocked by how graphic it is. T angrily yelled into a WENN reporter's tape recorder:"People die in the film and there's plenty of sex but when we did it, no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore. It was too graphic for me. I've no doubt it will do big business at the box office but it's nothing like the show we turned out every week." Haha. I don't know about you but that quote just sold me on seeing the movie. Mr. T is a natural born salesman whether he tries to be or not. **eats a heaping spoonful of stale Mr. T cereal from 1986**
Goonies 2: Cruise ControlIn a recent interview with Movie Mikes, Corey Feldman pulled a Shia Lebeouf by trashing his last sequel, Lost Boys 2: The Tribe, and then immediately talking up the next installment, Lost Boys 3: The Thirst. That usally raises a red flag, but after watching the latest trailer for the film, all of my fears were put to rest…NOT!Yes, I just used a horribly outdated Wayne's World catch phrase. But at least Wayne's World had some relevance within the last 20 years. That's more than can be said for The Lost Boys, which hasn't been popular in over two decades.That's not to say Lost Boys 3 looks completely terrible. I'm sure it's a lot more palatable than the Twilight movies all those damn kids keep going on about. And the story of a group of vampire hunters raiding an LA nightclub in order to shoot and kill all of the undead patrons seems cool. It reminds me of a reoccurring dream I've been having, except for all the vampire stuff. (DreadCentral)

Or Little Person Mr. T, if you wanna get all P.C. about it.
"Not now, ScreenJunkies."News broke today that Stanley Tucci will break out the ol' mustache and wear an Albert Einstein costume and appear in Captain America: The First Avenger. In the film he will play Dr. Abraham Erskine, Captain America's dad. Well, not his biological dad but the scientist who creates him. Like Pinnochio's Geppetto or Megaman's Dr. Light or Johnny Five's Steve Guttenberg.He'll be joining the previously-cast Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving, Tommy Lee Jones, Hayley Atwell, Dominic Cooper, Toby Jones, Sebastian Stan and Neal McDonough. (THR)
You can watch your unborn child on your new iPhone, yo!After Steve Jobs announced the release of the iPhone 4 today, he premiered the new commercial "FaceTime" directed by Sam Mendes of American Beauty and Road to Perdition fame. The spot showcases the video conferencing capabilities of the new slimmer device. You can now help your friends decide on what outfit to wear, or watch from across the world as your baby takes her first steps. Oh I'm sorry, I didn't mean for that to sound depressing. This is advanced technology. Show me a smile!Check out the spot at Apple HERE.
Those concerned that the second season of "Jersey Shore" will be a played out attempt by network execs to squeeze more money out of their runaway hit, can rest easy. The first ten minutes of the second season is now online, and we learn quickly that the cast reunite for reasons much more shallow than money. Namely, free tanning. That's right. The combination of record snowfalls and Obama's 10% tax on tanning has sent the cast south to Miami for the winter. In this first glimpse, we find out what the newly-minted celebrities have been up to (banging), watch Paulie D and the Situation play with explosives, and Snooki take pickles to a whole 'nother, WHOLE 'NOTHER level. THIS SEQUEL DEFINITELY WON'T SUCK. CHECK IT OUT AFTER THE JUMP…
Born and raised in Etobicoke, Canada, Katheryn Winnick trained extensively in the martial arts growing up. She currently holds a third-degree Black Belt in tae kwan do, a second-degree Black Belt in karate, and is a licensed bodyguard. Talk about a killer! Am I right or am I right or am I right?! A word from Katheryn: "I love roles that are strong and manipulative, thats why I became an actress."Funny, that's the reason I love being a man. More pics of Katheryn manipulating you with her body after the jump.
Justin Long and Mike White put together this amusing video in support of gay marriage. The message is simple: If you disagree with the homosexual lifestyle, why not overturn Prop 8 and make them get married, like the rest of us? Everyone deserves the right to be miserable and stuck in a monotonous blessed union. They also deserve the right to own a veiny penis surfboard. Check out the PSA after the jump.
I haven't been too impressed by what we've seen from Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, but I'll admit I may have been too quick to judge. In this first clip we see Michael Cera attempt to square-off against Chris Evans's action-star Lucas Lee. Since Lee is a Hollywood A-lister, Pilgrim will have to contend with his team of stunt doubles first. It's a pretty clever clip and the fight choreography is pretty slick. Plus, it fulfills my post-Nick and Norah desire to see Michael Cera cracked over the head with a skateboard by a gang of Amish. Edgar Wright is a genius!Check out the clip after the jump…
This action movie montage by director/editor Jacob Bricca pretty much sums up what we love at Screen Junkies. Granted, it could have more gratuitous nudity in it, but the riotous 4 minutes of in your face action puts your body in fight or flight mode so you completely forget about sex and you only care about SURVIVAL!!! I don't want to ruin the video by explaining the explosions and punches with my words. Just watch it and get jacked up this Monday morning. It's like a coffee enema for your eyeballs. Or something. Strap in and check out the montage below.
For those who missed it, Aziz Ansari rented a child's tux and hosted the 2010 Extended Twilight Saga: Eclipse Commercial last night and it was off the (insert current slang)! Girls kissed for attention, Tom Cruise stole Ben Stiller's act, and some people went home with awards. And some of them weren't even in Twilight.The Twilight Saga: New Moon swept of course, taking home five awards for Best Picture, Best Male and Female Performance, Best Kiss, and the Global Superstar Award. Anna Kendrick picked up a Golden Popcorn for her breakout in Up In The Air, and Beyonce and Ali Larter won Best Fight for Obsessed. And good for them. Larter trained with Yuen Wo-ping for 4 months to learn how to properly rip a bitch's weave.FULL LIST OF "WINNERS" AFTER THE JUMP….
While Ghostbusters 3 is seeming less and less likely, another ghoul film from the 80's may be getting closer to a sequel. Actor Michael Keaton has expressed interest in reprising his role of Beetlejuice, the ghost with the most.When asked about the possibility, Keaton replied, "Absolutely, that's the one thing I'd love to do again." I would have guessed that the "one thing" Keaton would have chosen to revisit would have been Mr. Mom, or maybe Gung Ho. But that's just me.Considering his Beetle Juice co-star Geena Davis has already expressed interest, it's probably only a matter of time before a studio throws money at yet another 80's nostalgia project. Of course, this is provided Alec Baldwin isn't too busy with "30 Rock," and Winona Ryder isn't too busy shoplifting! Zing! That joke is just as relevant as it was nine years ago! (DeadCentral)
"Dream On," Lord Voldemort. Dream until your dreams come true.Despite all the f-bombs and phony homosexual make-out sessions, the MTV Movie Awards still managed to find something for the kids: a new trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In the final installment of the franchise, Harry Potter prepares for the ultimate showdown with Lord Voldemort, better known as Aerosmith's Steven Tyler without the wig and prosthetic nose. Cocaine is a hell of a drug. Watch the new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows trailer after the jump.
OMG! Did you see that Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson made out at the MTV Movie Awards!?! I was all like WTF? Then I was LMAO! And then I farted. If it was 1994, I guess this would have been shocking. But it's 2010, and thanks in no small part to MTV, our society has been desensitized to the point where Sandra would need to pull out a strap-on for anyone to bat an eye. In a world where hardcore lesbian pornography is only a "redtube" away, is this sort of "stunt" really necessary? Tune in next week for another minute with Andy Rooney. Watch Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson lock lips (not the good kind) after the jump (at the 4 minute mark).
"Kali ma… Kali ma… Kali ma, shakthi deh!"Sandra Bullock's trophy case is growing decreasingly impressive. The Oscar-winner is slated to receive the MTV Generation Award at tonight's Movie Awards, and picked up a "Troops Choice Entertainer Of the Year Award" at Spike TV Guy's Choice Awards last night."Let's be honest here, just for a moment. We're all going to be honest, right?" Bullock quipped. "Did I win this for being entertainer of the year, or did I win this because of the spectacular I.E.D. explosion that became my personal life?" This drew a hearty laugh for Sgt. First Class Santiago. And then a low, nervous laugh as his fingers absent-mindedly stroked the plastic where his thigh used to be.Ms. Bullock looked stunning in a tight black leather Elie Saab knee-length dress, Casadei heels and lack of forehead tattoos. (E! Online)
Screen Junkies attended Spike TV's "Guy's Choice" Awards last night and had the opportunity to shoot a few questions at director Todd Phillips on the red carpet. He was nice enough to not ignore us, even though we don't have epic cleavage or piercing blue eyes (like Bradley Cooper. Ooooooh, Bradley). Here's what Phillips had to say about The Hangover 2, specifically the release date, and his upcoming film Due Date, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zack Galifianakis. What up with The Hangover 2?“We’re going to start shooting end of October and it comes out Memorial Day next year."MORE FROM PHILLIPS AFTER THE JUMP.
Let's raid some tombs!Noted pornographer and reality television mainstay Kim Kardashian is in talks to star in a reboot of Tomb Raider, according to "Hollywood insiders." Of course, the term "Hollywood insider" is often applied to forty-year-old bloggers who still collect their dead mothers' Social Security checks, so take it for what it's worth.If the rumors are true, the film will reportedly be shot in 3D and will be aimed at a "teen" audience, a brilliant move considering how much teens love giant bouncing breasts.Kardashian would also play "something very different to Angelina’s Lara," which we can only assume means there will be even less talking and even more interracial-sex. (ShowbizSpy)
Buuuuuuuh? Katy Perry is finally going to release those perfect sweater puppies of hers? That's what the stacked singer told Predator-haired Sway in an interview for MTV. "I'll be naked. There will be tons of naked girls," said Perry. I sure hope this isn't some big marketing ploy to get people to tune into the "MTV Movie Awards" this Sunday. The promise of boobs will make a man do funny things, like watching a ceremony where Twilight is one of the films up for best picture and it actually has a decent chance of winning. I'm know they can't show full on flesh on MTV, but I better watch with extreme attentiveness just in case the Gods allow a nip slip. Check out video proof of Katy saying she'll be naked after the jump.

Snoop Dogg wields his lizzle sizzle. Adidas wants you to buy their Star Wars Originals collection, so LucasFilm made this two minute commercial that doesn't feature shoes. It stars Snoop Dogg, Daft Punk, David Beckham, Jay Baruchel, Ciara, and others in the Cantina Scene from Star Wars. My only question is, why do the patrons give the black guy trouble? If they're racist, which they clearly are, they should have known the brother would be packin' heat. Check out the spot after the jump.
Looks like China's a little bit touchy about that whole being a communist superpower thing. A state-run paper is miffed that producers of Red Dawn have chosen to villify them in the upcoming remake, instead of the Soviet Union as they did in the original. Problem is, there is no Soviet Union anymore. We crushed them after watching the original Red Dawn. Oh hey, I think I see their point."Despite the world's focus on U.S.-China relations in the strategic and economic dialogue and their increasing economic connections, China can still feel U.S. distrust and fear, especially among its people. Americans' suspicions about China are the best ground for the hawks to disseminate fear and doubt, which is the biggest concern with the movie Red Dawn."Oh, poor wittle China. Gonna cry? Gonna cry?? China gonna cry? Wh-what are you doing?? No, put that tank back. I was just blogging in a snarky manner. The internet demands it!!! AAAARRRGGGHHHH!!!!! (via Cinematical)
Rob Reiner, or Big-Boned Spielberg as he prefers to be called (probably), is back with a quaint coming of age tale. Flipped tells the classic story: boy meets girl, boy discovers porno, boy settles for girl, girl has a weird forehead. It really is an ageless tale. What the hell is this? With a name like Flipped and Reiner attached, I'd assume this is some kind of pancake porn. Where's my syrup shot?! Flipped opens in theaters August 6th. CHECK OUT THE TRAILER AFTER THE JUMP…
I trust your meterological news implicitly.
"Brother?!"There were too many similarities in these stories to avoid lumping them together in one Ogre Round-Up.Brett Ratner – wants to produce an "edgy 3D re-imagining" of the famous Brothers Grimm story "Snow White." “This is not your grandfather’s Snow White,” Ratner said. “Melisa (person with boobs who writes words on paper) went back to the 500 year old folk tale and put in some of the things that were missing from Walt Disney’s film. His dwarves were miners, and here they are robbers. There is also a dragon that was in the original folk tale. Walt made one of the great movies of all time, but ours is edgy and there is more comedy. The original, made for its time, was soft compared to what we’re going to do.” a.k.a. This sh*t is gonna be gangsta! (Deadline)Shrek – could be poisoning children with more than just his vulgar reparté. McDonald's is being forced to recall 12 million Shrek drinking glasses because they contain the toxic metal cadmium, a known carcinogen that can cause bone softening and severe kidney problems. Brett Ratner has learned to live with these conditions, so all 12 million glasses will be shipped to his mansion along with a dump truck full of golden french fries as a thank you. (Movieline)
Natalina Maggio has starred in a bunch of TV shows as characters credited as "Model," "Cheerleader," "Bikini Girl," and "Persian Porn Star." In Get Him to the Greek she plays "Hot Club Dancer." If Natalina keeps climbing the ladder this quickly it won't be long before she lands the role of "Attractive Restaurant Hostess."A word from Natalina: Models and Bikini Girls don't speak in public. More reasons why Natalina plays hot girls after the jump.
YAAAH-HAAWWW!!!! Pull yerselves up a rock and knock back some apple jack. We've got usselves a casting round-up, and it's gonna be a hog killin' good time.JEREMY RENNER – is in talks to play Hawkeye in Joss Whedon's Avengers. He's previously denied his involvement with the project, but he's ready to talk now that the pieces are falling into place. Will this disclude him from appearing in PT Anderson's The Master? Let's see? Dress up as the Marvel Universe's archery guy or piss off all the Scientologists in Hollywood? Here's a pile of cash and a brochure for archery lessons. (THR)NEAL McDONOUGH – is in talks to play Dum Dum Dugan in Joe Johnston's Captain America. Dugan is a member of the Howling Commandos and Nick Fury's second-in-command. I'd report further but looking at McDonough hurts my eyes. He should really be required to wear a hat in trenchcoat when out in public. Like a ninja turtle. (Deadline)
Director: Rob LettermanCast: Jack Black, Emily Blunt, T.J. Miller, Amanda PeetSynopsis: In a contemporary re–imagining of the classic tale, Jack Black stars as Gulliver, a big–talking mailroom clerk who, after he’s mistakenly assigned a travel piece on the Bermuda Triangle, suddenly finds himself a giant among men when he washes ashore on the hidden island of Lilliput, home to a population of very tiny people.Release Date: December 22, 2010
Samantha and her new bo get frisky!Just yesterday, it seemed as if Sex and the City's destruction was all but assured. With poor box-office returns, a rapidly aging cast and the death of Rue McClanahan (a.k.a. Samantha), another film seemed out of the question. But much like Skynet from the Terminator series, SATC is launching a last-ditch effort to escape oblivion by fleeing into the past.New Line has expressed interest in adapting SATC author Candace Bushnell's follow-up series, "The Carrie Diaries," into a prequel, allowing for a "new and younger-skewing collection of films." Perhaps most disturbing is the fact that Bushnell herself has expressed interest in Miley Cyrus as a possible lead.Unless we want to see Sex and the City continue to plague mankind for generations to come, this prequel must be stopped. For he who controls the past controls the future, and he who controls the present controls the past…or something like that. (CinemaBlend)
In a bid to make the program more fappable, "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" has added Olivia Munn as the new "Senior Asian Correspondent." Munn appeared on last night's program to report the plight of Vietnamese fishermen effected by the spill in the Gulf. She will continue to appear throughout the coming weeks as she continues to try out for the show. I can understand Olivia's wanting to be on a show where her co-host doesn't seek every opportunity to feel her up, but I really feel like she'd fit better as the "Senior Nerd Correspondent." If anyone can get the truth out of an overweight virgin in a Destro costume, it's her. How'd she do? Check out the clip after the jump….
