All this week, BAYWATCH '09 has given you the goods on all things that go BOOM. Monday was the 10 Best Michael Bay-directed Music Videos… Tuesday was the first ever Michael Bay Explosion Tournament… Well, it wouldn't be a proper Bay-themed week without cleavage. You're welcome.By Thomas Anderson
All this week, BAYWATCH '09 has given you the goods on all things that go BOOM. Monday was the 10 Best Michael Bay-directed Music Videos… Tuesday was the first ever Michael Bay Explosion Tournament… Well, it wouldn't be a proper Bay-themed week without cleavage. You're welcome. By Thomas Anderson It doesn’t matter how many movies Michael Bay comes out with; you still get the sense that he just might be sitting there behind the camera, sneaking a peek at Megan Fox’s stomach or Scarlet Johansson’s ass (hell, wouldn’t you?). Sometimes you wonder if he cast them simply so he could ogle them from behind the camera and create a few off-camera explosions in his pants, but you’ve got to hand it to the guy: he knows how to populate his worlds with gorgeous bombshells who are strong, independent women who often find the need to remove their clothes to save the world, or maybe just give the hero a little pick-me-up.
John Gosselin is free!!! Jon & Kate announced on their show yesterday that they are getting a divorce after ten years of marriage. I find this less surprising than the fact that they have eight children and are still legally sane. Divorce is sad, but for the kids that means twice as many Christmas presents, right?! Wait, it just means twice as much therapy? Booooo…
M. Night Shyamalan is back…but there's a twist! He's doing a kid's movie. I guess he decided to take a break from "scary" since the scariest part about his most recent films are how not scary they are. The Last Airbender is about an Avatar who has the ability to manipulate elements and bring nations together. Also, according to the trailer, he can blow out a shitload of candles with palm-breath. Call me oldfashioned, but I still prefer farts.

VOTING FOR ROUND 1 IS CLOSED, BUT YOU CAN STILL VOTE FOR WHO GOES TO THE BIG BOOM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCHUP!
According to Variety, Hollywood is making yet another family film with animals that's sure to rake in millions. The Zookeeper, starring Kevin James and Rosario Dawson, centers on zoo animals trying to teach the keeper their method of dating and mating to help him win back the woman of his dreams. Cher's voicing a giraffe, Jon Favreau a bear, Sly Stallone a lion, and Judd Apatow an elephant. If the film sticks to a realistic portrayal a great deal of the advice is going to involve forceful sexual advances. In the animal kingdom, "no" doesn't mean no. When Mr. Lion is horny he takes what he wants. But surely if Kevin James persists there's going to be a HILARIOUS moment where a woman knees him in the balls.
HBO Miniseries – THE PACIFIC – Watch more MOVIE TRAILERS Above is the trailer for the Steven Spielberg/Tom Hanks-produced "The Pacific." It's a 10-Part miniseries dealing with three interwoven stories of American soldiers fighting the Japanese in the Pacific during World War II (hence the title). If you look closely, you'll notice one of the key characters is played by Joseph Mazzello, whom you will undoubtedly remember as young Tim Murphy, the grandson of John Hammond… in Jurassic Paaaaaaaaahk. I for one did a double take. We missed you, Lil' Joey.

INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS Trailer #2 – Watch more Funny Videos There's a new Inglourious Basterds trailer out today, this time delving a little deeper into what the film's actual plot might be. To be honest though, I still don't really understand what's happening with this movie. My level of enthusiasm for this film comes in waves, starting at a high level when I first heard about the film, then waning when I saw the first teaser, and now just very confused about everything I'm seeing and feeling. It's kind of like the first time you had a wet dream, at this point; you're confused as to how and why it happened, and also why Brad Pitt was wearing a white tux while speaking in a thick Appalachian accent.

It's no secret that Screen Junkies loves Michael Bay, and to celebrate the release of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, we're calling this week BAYWATCH. Every day for the next five days, there will be a new feature dedicated to Michael Bay, the man, the myth, the pyromaniac. Kicking off the week is a look back at Bay's earlier work. Before the Boom (and Bad Boys)… there was the music. Michael Bay made his reputation on making music artists look really frickin' cool based on the aesthetic standards of the day. Bay's work was dramatic. It was gorgeous. And it single-handedly supported Hollywood's "lens mist filter" and silk drapery industries for years.Here are our favorites, in chronological order. Richard Marx's "Angelia" (1989)
Above is the new trailer for World's Greatest Dad, directed by none other than comedian Bobcat Goldthwait (forever my favorite Police Academy 'new recruit') and starring Robin Williams as a washed up writer teaching high school English and trying to raise a kid on his own. The trailer makes the movie look pretty promising, with Williams taking the family comedy route he's treaded so many times before but then veering off a cliff and careening into the dark world of vagina jokes. As you can see, metaphors aren't my forté. Dare I say that Robin Williams is back? I dare.
Trailer for 2012 – Watch more Funny VideosRoland Emmerich and Michael Bay should have an explosion war. Both of them get a sick kick out of blowing up monuments, landmarks, and national treasures. In fact, they even blow up the same icons in several different movies. Why not just go back in time and punch Betsey Ross in the kidney while she's sewing the stars and stripes on the American Flag? Or better yet, have the Red Coats crash a tidal wave down on top of her. Maybe Emmerich can work that into a redux of the The Patriot. Until then, we can watch John Cusack and a motley cast of other recognizable faces outrun the end of the world much like the characters do in The Day After Tomorrow and Independence Day.
Today we received this outtake of Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert whipping sh*t on each other in between takes of their old show, "Siskel & Ebert At The Movies." I'd date this clip from about 1987, given that they're trying to get through an intro about Robocop. But they don't get through it because Siskel flubs a line. Then Ebert makes fun of Siskel's tongue-tied delivery, and then Siskel unleashes a merciless stream of fat jokes. C'mon Siskel. Fat jokes are a low blow. Then again, so is brain cancer. Good one, God. Hilarious…[Thanks to Screen Junkies reader "James S." for the tip.]Top Links of the Day: Theresa Graziadai IS HOT and Really Likes Washing Old Cars (GorillaMask)The 7 Stages Of First-Time Sex With Someone (HolyTaco)Zombies As Liberal Parable?

Teen Wolf, the family-friendly cautionary tale from the 80s, could be informing a new generation of pubescents about the perils of hairy palms. Or rather, the totally awesome benefits. According to MovieHole.com, Warner Brothers is currently out to writers to update the 1985 hit starring Alex P. Keaton, a.k.a. The Fox. Apparently the execs aren't certain which way they're going to go tonally. We've already seen the high-concept comedy version, so I say they deliver a dark melodrama. Drugs, sex, violence, and attempted suicide. It'll be like a Bret Easton Ellis novel, but with fur.
By Mike Hammer We love our dad. It’s a shame people have to get old and put in facilities where they can be properly cared for. At 43, we simply felt he just wasn’t pulling his weight…and besides…detox is something NOBODY has to be ashamed of anymore. With dad in isolation and Father’s Day coming up we thought we’d relive some of our most heart-wrencing, tender and sometimes hilarious father/son conversations…from the movies. To be honest our real conversations were kind of creepy. Here are the best from the big screen:
Those two crazy cats are at it again. Tom Cruise and J.J. Abrams have decided to bring Ethan Hunt back for a fourth round of explosions, high-wire acts, and elaborate MacGuffins. According to Variety, Sumner Redstone and Cruise are in the process of mending fences so they can play in the same Paramount sandbox again. It's amazing how the prospect of money heals all wounds. As far as Abrams' involvement, he's not attached to direct this installment of M.I. because he's working on a kickass sequel to his kickass Star Trek reboot. But hopefully soon enough we'll again be hearing Cruise scream "Red light! Green light!" as specks of spittle fly from his mouth.
The trailer for The Stepfather remake (or is it reimagining?) hit the web today, and it sets a tone not unlike other horror/slasher movie trailers. Expect quick cuts and flash frames to raise the tension, and Amber Heard in a bikini to raise, well… The film basically follows the premise of the original except this time the kid is a boy, he has younger siblings, and his soon-to-be stepfather is the guy from Nip/Tick and not the guy from Lost. Oh, and Amber Heard is in a bikini.Today's Top Links: Melissa Rogers At Work And Play (GorillaMask) 8 More Accurate College Mascots (HolyTaco) Adam Sandler In More Fake Movies (FilmDrunk) The 10 Dumbest Moments In Wheel Of Fortune History (Manofest) The Most Badass Toothbrush Travel Case Ever (Walyou) A Bride Of Frankenstein Remake Might Happen (Pajiba) 5 Celebrity Careers Launched By Ethnic Makeovers (Cracked) Guide To The Girls Of Summer '09 (CoedMagazine) Diego Sanchez Talks About Getting A Title Shot (CagePotato) Pixely Awesome Videogame Blankets (UnrealityMag) Obama And Other Dudes Awesome Enough To Kill Flies (Asylum) Tim Tebow Is A Fan Of The Olive Garden (BustedCoverage) 5 Funny Movie Characters Who Are Unintelligible (Uncoached) 8 Inventions From The Year 2019 (RegretfulMorning) Father's Day Gifts: Food And Drink Edition (BachelorGuy) 2009-2010 College Football Bowl Schedule (MoondogSports) Nascar-Themed Summer Blockbusters (AllLeftTurns)
The Futon Critic snagged a great interview with David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Blade) and Marc Guggenheim, Executive Producers on the new ABC sci-fi/drama FlashForward. In it they discuss the confusion over the show's labeled genre, the difficulties of writing a serialized show for today's viewers, and the mysterious date of April 29, 2010, the day the characters experienced their flash forwards. If you're not aware of the show's premise, basically when a mysterious event causes the entire world to black out for two minutes and seventeen seconds, humanity is given a glimpse into its near future, and every man, woman, and child is forced to come to grips with whether their destinies can be avoided or fulfilled. Read the interview in full by clicking on Goyer's delightful smile below.
THE HURT LOCKER examines the dangerous duties of three members of the Army’s Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) squad. Bombs are their business, and they know their business extremely well. They have to because each roadside stop could mean their lives. Stars Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, and Brian Geraghty, director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal broke down for us how you tackle a movie about an elite unit that goes in when everyone else is running away. It’s as meticulous a task as disarming an IED (That's an Improvised Explosive Device for you civilians).
Ian, please write some copy about these shorts here. Just include some info about what they are, and how they fit into Showtime's agenda… maybe make some light joke about them, but don't be too critical because we're being asked to promote them. And they're kinda funny anyway. Make sure you change the time and date so that this doesn't get buried under anything it shouldn't.
According to Deadline Hollywood Daily, Michael Bay really pissed off some devoted fans in Seoul. They were waiting in the rain for over two hours for Bay's arrival at the Transformers 2 premiere, and he showed up late with Shia LeBeouf and Megan Fox in tow. Rumor has it he didn't even bring a corsage, kept reminiscing about his ex girlfriend, and seemed completely ignorant to the fact that fans had been looking forward to the event for weeks. After the premiere, fans spent the rest of the night sobbing into their pillows and wishing the whole night had never happened. Bay tried to save some face by issuing a formal apology, but that's not going to stop the kids in the cafeterias and cubicles from snickering at the Transformer's fans' misfortune.
George Simmons in "Re-Do" from Justin LongThis clip from a movie inside a movie features Adam Sandler playing George Simmons as Craig the workaholic in the high-concept comedy Re-Do. In an effort to start over, a wizard turns Craig into a baby with an adult head. I don't know who this wizard is but I certainly hope he gets his wizard license revoked for such blatant and inexcusable wizard malpractice. I guess we'll never know since the film isn't really real. And just in case you're interested in purchasing the first season of 'Yo Teach' you can get it at the NBC Store.

WHITEOUT Trailer – Watch more Funny Videos Above is the new trailer for Whiteout, starring Kate Beckinsale and Gabriel Macht (The Spirit). The film is based on the Eisner Award-winning graphic novel of the same name written by Greg Rucka (available from Oni Press). Not sure what to think about this yet. At about the 1:30 mark, the trailer totally shifts gears from an action-adventure flick to a murder mystery, when Macht reveals to Beckinsale that "this is the first murder in Antarctica." I think Macht is forgetting the grisly gun down of Polar Bear Face Nelson in the 1920s. There's enough fish in the ocean. No need for bear on bear crime. Just sad, really.
People may not be aware that Harold Ramis was the Judd Apatow of the 1980s. In addition to his landmark acting roles in Ghostbusters and Stripes, he penned and directed some of the all-time greatest comedies – National Lampoon’s Vacation and Caddyshack (just to name a couple). Judd Apatow, on the other hand, has had just as much influence on the producing side, and it’s his role there that teams him up with Ramis on the Jack Black and Michael Cera history vehicle Year One (opening Friday).

Today, JustJared.com posted several images of Russell Crowe on the set of Ridley Scott's new Robin Hood flick. Above, Crowe (playing Robin Hood) drives Scott Grimes (playing Will Scarlet) in a Mule 9010. This is from the scene in which Robin and his Merry Men take a break from stealing from the rich for a round of golf cart polo, set to Kenny Loggins music. Good for team building.See some more pics after the jump.
