Here's the last Star Trek starlet to get you prepped for Abrams's sexed up reboot, if you haven't seen it three times already. Our featured girl's roles have gotten smaller and smaller each day, and we're ending on a girl who's character is basically the equivalent of an Original Series red shirt, minus the expendable part. Yes, it's siren Rachel Nichols as "Gaila," the green Star Fleet Cadet! Where You've Seen Her Before: Rachel's familiar with Abrams and company, having guest starred on the fifth (and final) season of "Alias" as CIA Agent Rachel Gibson. She also showed up in the remake of The Amityville Horror, in Charlie Wilson's War as one of "Charlie's Angels," and in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, which you have secretly seen and enjoyed on a lonely saturday night. You're going to be seeing a lot more of Rachel this summer, as she's also starring as Scarlett in G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra.Random Quote: "I am smarter than you, and I am better looking, and I have an accomplished career, and I’m not even thirty."Well then. See how accomplished Rachel is in these racy photos after the jump.
One Eyed Monster Trailer – Watch more Movie TrailersThis is the trailer for the film, One Eyed Monster starring Ron Jeremy, available on DVD right now. It's a horror movie about Jeremy's detached penis going on a rampage, and an adult film crew banding together to stop it, natch. Somewhere, a Gender Studies professor is already beginning her dissertation on the film as a biting media satire, but I'm pretty sure it's just about a giant dick killing people. At about 1:59 in the clip, an actor pretty much sums up the movie, and his line delivery is so earnest, he should win an award or something.

It's Mother's Day on sunday, and Screenjunkies is saluting the top ten movie moms from whom we wouldn't mind receiving a spanking. Deciding this was difficult. We pored over days' worth of DVDs… held focus groups in top secret testing facilities underneath Beverly Hills… and even phoned our Dads to get their opinions. What resulted is this list – a virtual who's who of cinematic MILFage from the past twenty years. You may not agree with them as your personal ten, but you can't deny that if any of them were your mother… then you probably have/had a lot of friends ask to spend the night at your place in high school.Send in the MOMS!!! HALLE BERRY as Leticia Musgrove in Monster's Ball
Star Trek officially opens tonight and Mother's Day is Sunday. How appropriate, then, that we introduce you to Jennifer Morrison, who plays Winona Kirk, the mother of Capt. James Tiberius Kirk, in JJ Abrams' film. There are several different backstories associated with the character, but no matter what reality you buy into as a Trekker, you can't deny Jennifer's practically playing the mother of god. Where you've seen her before: She's probably most familiar as Dr. Allison from Fox's "House" series, but she's also played Jamie in Grind, Amy in Urban Legends: Final Cut, and Chris in a small 2004 film called Mall Cop, whose makers probably hate their lives right now.Random Quote: "My resume for Cameron has me graduating medical school the year I graduated junior high.”See pictures of Jennifer after the jump:

Well, another day, another Inglourious Basterds poster featuring another cast member being labeled a "Basterd." This time it's Diane Kruger… but we didn't want to use that as our main image, because we're feeling whimsical today. So here's a fake poster from our fantasy version of inglourious Basterds, in which a youthful Gary Coleman takes on the Nazis. Whatchutalkin'bout, Hitler?!See the real Diane Kruger poster (and the others released at this point) after the jump.
If you haven't seen Zach Galifianakis's FunnyOrDie show, Between Two Ferns, you've been missing the internet's best talk show, period. In the new episode, the hirsute star of the upcoming Vegas comedy The Hangover (also starring likely Green Lantern Bradley Cooper and The Office's Ed Helms) waxes idiotically while interviewing Natalie Portman, who does her best not to crack up. She's a trooper. Watch the video after the jump, and see Mr. Galifianakis threaten to tie a Yorkshire Terrier's penis in a knot.
There have been rumors floating around, but today, on CNN's "American Morning," anchored by Kiran Chetry, former porn star (and current adult film producer) Stormy Daniels was interviewed about her 'serious' potential candidacy for United States Senate. If it happens, she would be running in Louisiana against Republican Senator David Vitter, whom you may remember as being involved with the "D.C. Madame" and her prostitution ring back in '07. Embedded video from CNN Video Not sure what platform Daniels will run on, but if one does only a tiny bit of research (or opens the secret compartment in the air duct where one keeps one's pornography), it's easy to see that Daniels has had experience with several hot button issues of the day. She's seen action in the Persian Gulf with… She's brushed up on Foreign Relations with… And she's closely examined our broken health care system in… Seems like we're merely steps away from…
Okay okay, maybe the term "starlet" doesn't apply to Winona Ryder, given that she's consistently worked in the biz since 1988's Beetlejuice. But with Abrams' new movie, Winona's career is going to get a reboot, just like Star Trek itself. So it's like a reincarnated starlet. Who is Winona in Trek? In the film, Winona plays Amanda Grayson, Spock's human mom. The character has appeared four times prior to this new installment, including the "Journey to Babel" episode in the Original Series, and in the films, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. If you're the first person to name the episode of the Trek cartoon series in which Amanda appears, WE HAVE A STAR TREK T-SHIRT FOR YOU. (Just email our feedback_@_screenjunkies.com address) Fun fact: her marriage to Spock's Dad, Sarek, is widely considered to be the first Vulcan-Human interracial marriage. Space fevah!Character Quote: "Logic! Logic! I'm sick to death of logic! Do you want to know what I think about your logic?"It would only be logical of you to check out the photos of Winona after the jump:
A new extended scene from Rian Johnson's upcoming The Brothers Bloom has hit the 'Net, and we have it. Watch carefully as star Rachel Weisz shows how to deliver a compelling monologue while demonstrating the sort of card trickery reserved for hustlers and extremely talented birthday party magicians.

Andy Samberg and Will Arnett in Slaughter Shack – Watch more Funny VideosI generally stay away from the MTV Movie Awards as much as possible, but their promo videos and interstitials during the show keep pulling me back in time and time again. This time, it's a Road House-inspired fight scene with Andy Samberg, Will Arnett and an amazing cameo by – dare I say it? – someone carrying Phil Hartman's torch… Bill Hader.
The reviews are rolling in for JJ Abrams' Star Trek reboot, and they're glowing like a phaser set to "kill." And boy, does Abrams knows how to cast killer lady actors. For the rest of this week, Screenjunkies will be singling out a Star Trek starlet each day and giving you a few tidbits of their career history before opening night. Set loins to "aroused."Today's girl is Zoe Saldana, who plays Uhura in the film. Where you've seen her: As Anamaria in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, as Dolores Torres in The Terminal, and as Angie Jones in Vantage Point. She'll also be in the film version of the second coming of Jesus, James Cameron's Avatar. Pointless Quote: “You need 100% commitment; you have to be willing to wake up every morning knowing you're going to practice eight hours straight.”See the photos of Zoe after the jump:
The new trailer for Michael Mann's 1930s Gangster flick Public Enemies hit the 'Net earlier today. So far, so awesome. It sort of pulls the old A Knight's Tale gimmick of putting contemporary music in a period piece, albeit not quite to the same obvious degree. But then someone thought golly gee, this movie looks so authentic, we'd be nuts not to give it the ol' newsreel treatment, see! Watch more Funny Videos We think it fits right in there with some of the old talkies. Except for the steadicam work, the real car stunts and the lack of horrid compositing.
This trailer just might satisfy your thirst for LOTR until Del Toro's double header Hobbit comes out… Trailer 2 – The Hunt For Gollum by HuntForGollum Who knows where the hell all these nerds got the money for helicopter shots and decent makeup, or where they picked up the hot Arwen who's down to kiss said nerds, but these guys (actually 160 volunteers) put together what looks to be a surprisingly good fan film that might actually get off those Simarllion-reading fanboys out there. Check out it out in it's entirety, all 40 minutes of the film (which was released world-wide just two days ago) right after the break.
The NBA Playoffs are (finally) into the second round and at long last we have gotten over an unbelievably uneventful NCAA Tournament. So, needless to say, we’ve seen some good basketball lately (apart from the Utah Jazz – jab!). Why not take a look at some of Cinema’s darker basketball moments? You know the ones – super-leaping little children tomahawk-dunking on some white doofus’ face when the glass shatters at the buzzer and the crowd goes wild. Those are the moments when people realize, and movies preach, life is not all about basketball. It’s about love, friendship, hard work, and sweat. Lots and lots of sweat. It’s all still about basketball, though. That’s why the hero gets carried off the court on people’s shoulders. No one gave a damn about anyone learning a lesson, they cared that their team won the game at the last friggin’ second! Not only that, the team showed those jerks over at Opponent High (Fighting Muskrats) that they were the better basketball players and therefore the better people.
Tonight, a ballerina's lungs implode during a performance and then the skin on her body starts falling off (House), Jack Bauer gets closer and closer to thwarting a secret society of CEO's hell bent on terrorizing their own country (24), and the Discovery channel gives us thorough insight into the military 'Juggernaut.' Your extended preview and an awesome video of a tank jumping from a mound and firing it's main weapon mid-air.
This past weekend, after a second screening of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, I came to terms with the fact that, from time to time, I have an insatiable appetite for comic books. Maybe I just got wrapped up in Fox's full-on marketing assault this time? Check. Maybe it's a feeling of desperation to recapture my youth? Oh god… check. I got so into it, I belabored over the contents of a piece on X-Men stories that should be on film… and in doing so, I found myself needing to revisit a bunch of the classic Marvel back-issues. One problem. All my back issues are stowed away, carefully bagged and boarded in my grandparents' basement back in the Midwest. And as much as my grandfather would probably be willing to ship every single one of them to me via UPS ground – god bless him – I needed them at my fingertips, and pronto.And then I discovered Marvel Digital Comics, which was an experience I can only imagine as akin to the first radio, television, or downloaded porn mpg…
They don’t quite possess the good looks and panache necessary to thrive as A-list leading men, and they haven’t yet been granted a role meaty enough to raise them up to supporting actor status. They are the supporting actor’s supporting actor. The character actors that populate a film with moving, emotional performances yet too often go unnoticed or remain the undistinguished “guy who was good in that movie.” We here at ScreenJunkies wish to honor a few of these unsung heroes of the silver screen. It’s time to eliminate the question mark and give these outstanding thespians the recognition they deserve.

The trailer for the Peter Jackson produced film District 9 hit the interweb today, and let’s just hope the corporate aliens aren’t watching. In it there’s a facially pixilated alien being interviewed like he’s a former employee ratting on a CEO. Only it’s in alien-speak, so you can’t understand a word he’s saying. Unless of course you’re a dirty alien bent on Earth’s destruction! The film is directed by Neill Blomkamp, who was in line to direct the feature adaptation of Halo until the budget reached the fabricated figure of a trillion dollars and the studio shut it down. From the look of the trailer, though, Neill seems be skilled in the ways of creating an interesting landscape, even if it’s not Master Chief blasting away the Covenant in The Armory. Check it out after the jump.
The new U.S. version of the trailer for the Blood: The Last Vampire live-action adaptation is here. It's got rice hat sporting dudes wielding katanas and popping out of the ground, ass-kicking vampires dressed like schoolgirls and voiceover from a guy who makes the Optimus Prime sound like a castrato. Check it out after the jump.Blood: The Last Vampire opens in theaters this summer.
Look at this glorious beast…Besides hunting your children and howling at the moon, the Yellowstone Wolf struggles for life in Yellowstone National Park amongst harsh conditions. Discovery has an Planet Earth-like series following this noble creature as it dodges geysers, battles bears for buffalo meat and survives in one of the last great pieces of vast wilderness. Video of a wolf/bear battle, a gas tanker exploding, and previews of Dollhouse and Breaking Bad after the jump.
Well, well, well. X-Men Origins: Wolverine is finally, officially in theaters. At the risk of sounding like a shill for Fox, might we suggest you go out and see it and actually pay for a ticket? But we’re not here to proselytize against movie piracy. We’re here to talk about one thing: kickass X-Men source material ready for cinematic adaptation. Before getting into the main focus of this feature, whet your appetite with a glance at some of the major comic book stories that directly influenced X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Before you dress up as Gambit for the midnight screening of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, be sure not to miss your favorite night of TV. Tonight, Ms Knope goes head-to-head with an 'Old Boys Club', there's an interesting casual friday at the Office, Tracy Jordan tries to become more mature (see above), and the LA po-po try and track down the identity of a body that the crips and/or bloods used for target practice. Check out a full preview after the break (now with extra Creed Bratton!)
This Friday, X-Men Origins: Wolverine opens, and the world will become a lot more familiar with actress Lynn Collins, who plays Silver Fox, the lady who plays Wolverine for a fool… Where You May Have Seen Her: The Texas native played "R.C" in William Friedkin's Bug, "Suicide Blonde" in The Number 23, "Linda" in 50 First Dates and has a recurring role as "Dawn Green" in HBO's True Blood. Random Quote: "[The actors in Wolverine] were all on super-buff diets, and I had pizza most of the time. They were so jealous of me. I didn't have to beef up in this movie. I just had to wear skimpy clothes."See Photos of Lynn in Skimpy Clothes After The JUMP:
Sylvester Stallone is a film institution. The muscleman’s legend spans the globe due to the iconic characters he has popularized over the years. And at almost 63 years old, he’s amazingly jacked. Seriously, you could grate Jason Statham on those abs.Here are five movie roles tailor-made for the Silver Screen hero: THE SQUEEZERIn the dangerous world of underground massage the women are beautiful, the men are hard, and the stakes are deadly. Retired assassin Grant Lovejoy went in for what he expected to be a routine rub and tug but what he got was far more draining. Now with a small bomb planted in his urethra, Lovejoy will tear through Chinatown until he exacts vengeance on all of his enemies — all while ejaculating every seven minutes. Lovejoy always wanted a happy ending in life. Careful what you wish for.
Tonight at The Bridge Cinema in Los Angeles, the trailer for Transformers 2 was shown in IMAX before an IMAX screening of the original film. There to introduce the film was none other than Boom-tastic director Michael Bay, actor/singer Tyrese, and Shia LaBeouf. As you can see from the following video, they're all working it big time, pumping up the jam like Paramount was payin' 'em the big bucks or something. Michael Bay, Tyrese & LaBeouf Pump Up The Jam – Watch more Funny Videos No one pumps up the jam harder than Tyrese, who followed up the first showing of the sequel's trailer by telling the crowd they would be watching it again, whether they wanted to or not, even though they'd seen the trailer 100,000,000 times already from the YouTube leak that had happened about 15 hours before. Also at the screening were fans who showed up in full Transformers regalia in hopes of winning tickets to the LA premiere of Revenge of the Fallen. Here are some of those poor bastards who had to try to squeeze their giant robot asses in movie theater seats.
