Classic cinema stills get bombed.
Bond Girl Rosamund Pike stars with Bruce Willis in Surrogates, opening everywhere today. Besides sexing up the screen in Die Another Day, Rosamund also starred in Pride & Prejudice as Jane Bennet, where she met future fiance, now ex-fiance, director Joe Wright. Apparently Joe called off the engagement shortly before the wedding. The invitations had already been sent out. Ooooo, that's gotta sting. You would have looked stunning in your wedding gown. Someday, Rosamund. Someday… A word from Rosamund: "If I have a quality of Englishness that people like, I won't hide that. I'm probably not going to play a junkie and that's OK."You say that now, but what if Spielberg wanted you to play a junkie for his new motion capture 3D musical "Junkies," huh? That project doesn't exist, but are you going to tell one of the greatest directors of all time that you won't smoke crack rock on screen? Besides, with your good looks, you could totally make rotted teeth work. Here are some pics after the jump with exemplary oral hygene!
Entertainment Tonight has posted video of their exclusive Iron Man 2 set visit. Too bad it wasn't Access Hollywood. Pat O'Brien could bring the "party favors" and Robert Downey Jr. could bring his Wonder Woman costume and things could just get nuts. Anywheyz, the footage shows awesome glimpses of the action such as behind the scenes footage of Mickey Rourke bisecting a Rolls Royce with his laser whips. But then it turns vapid in typical ET style. To paraphrase: REPORTER: Did you work out for this? RD Jr: Yeah. I worked out for this. REPORTER: OMG! Still, it's a cool look at a huge film that focuses mainly on the Monaco Grand Prix scene so as to not give away any spoilers. Check it out.

So, David Fincher's Facebook flick, The Social Network, got a cast this week. Why not a Digg movie in the future? Here's our "What If?" version, straight from the fake headlines of Variety.

"Can you hear me now? How about now? Hello? Dammit. My cell phone doesn't work up he-" HACK! Scream. SLASH! Dead.I think this montage may have covered every single horror movie ever made in which someone's cell phone drops dead before they do. Except for Bachelor Party Massacre. That one wasn't on there, and it's a prime example of a genre film's successful use of the cell phone conundrum.

Sonya Walger was Penny on Lost, or as her husband Desmond pronounced it, "Penne!" like the pasta. But she also was on Tell Me You Love Me, where her character gave a controversial rub and tug to Adam Scott's character. Some people say it was Brown Bunny-real, while others think it was Boogie Nights-fake. Either way, Sonya looks like she's got some skeeellz. Look for her tonight as Olivia Benford on the premiere of FlashForward on ABC. It's network though, so don't expect any happy endings (sexually speaking). A word from Sonya: "I don't watch TV!"Well that's not going to help the ratings of your new show any. Try taking a gander tonight. See how you do. We promise television is far more entertaining than listening to The Shadow program on the radio. Oh wait, radio dramas don't exist anymore because it's 2009!The pictures of Sonya after the jump though are timeless!
With two hit television shows, a best selling book series, and the world's most downloaded podcast under his belt, about the only thing left for Ricky Gervais to conquer is the silver screen. And with the upcoming release of The Invention of Lying (Oct. 2), Gervais is poised to do just that…unless of course it's anything like Ghost Town.In honor of this comedic Renaissance man and his new film, we've compiled our seven favorite classic Ricky Gervais clips. Gervais, the Stand-Up Comedian/MC:Not many comedians can reference both AIDS and the Holocaust and still get a laugh (unless Mel Gibson or my dad are in the audience). But Ricky Gervais pulls it off flawlessly.
Director: Ricky Gervais, Matthew RobinsonCast: Ricky Gervais, Jennifer Garner, Louis C.K., Jeffrey Tambor, Jonah HillSynopsis: A comedy set in a world where no one has ever lied, until a writer seizes the opportunity for personal gain.
David Cronenberg is revisiting his 1986 film, The Fly. Which of course was a remake of a previous version re-imagined through the Goldblum Filter. A remake of a remake? That kind of gene-thinning would normally create a film who's plot is more deformed than Sloth's nutsack. However, Cronenberg has proven himself to be an inventive and solid director so we're not worried about this project at all. We'll provide more details as they come in.

Megan Fox Music Video – Watch more Funny Videos As you may know by now, Jennifer's Body opened this weekend to disappointing box office figures, even though the movie had the three ingredients that can almost guarantee a hit: an Oscar-winning writer behind the script, lesbian kissing and… lesbian kissing. So what went wrong? Well, recording artist Without a Face might have the answer to that in this new music video response to the film, entitled 'Hire a Hacktress.' If only Hollywood players communicated their ideas like Without a Face… actually development meetings would be really long with the whole singing instead of talking thing, but the results would speak for themselves.

Sofia Vergara isn't too well known in the States, but in Colombia she's a goddess. And judging by her pic above you can see why. Sofia stars as Ed O'Neill's wife Gloria Delgado-Pritchett in Modern Family, which premieres tonight on ABC. I've seen it, and while it may not completely alleviate your Arrested Development withdrawal, it's as close as you're going to get to funny dysfunctional family situational comedy. Watch it, if only for Sofia, and to kill some time.A word from Sofia: "This is how I've looked since I was 13 years old."I think that makes you the reason they invented statutory rape.Here are some delightfully legal pics after the jump!
This morning, Variety confirmed that Columbia Pictures and David Fincher have set the three principal castmembers for The Social Network, the Aaron Sorkin-penned drama retelling the creation of Facebook. Hollywood's current "awkward smart guy" du jour Jesse Eisenberg will portray Facebook's founder, Mark Zuckerberg.
A Japanese Tim Burton fansite leaked the above picture of Nicolas Cage dressed as Tommy Wiseau dressed as Superman and its now all over the 'Netz. Some speculate that this is a test shot for Burton's never-lensed Superman Lives project. Others say it is Nicolas Cage badly shooped onto an action figure. At any rate, it's not half as ridiculous as this Nicolas Cage Ghost Rider makeup test.Apparently, Cage had Harlow FX do this trial run on him for his Halloween party a few years back while Ghost Rider was in the early stages of pre-production. It is also apparently where his son Weston Coppola Cage gets his fashion sense.

In these hard economic times, many of us have had to turn to our own ingenuity to make ends meet. And a lot of times, that means going out of one's comfort zone. In the case of international terrorist organization COBRA, they had to resort to recruiting would-be ne'er-do-wells with their own hair metal band… and its own theme song, "Cold Slither." Thankfully, Al Qaeda hasn't been able to assemble a band of such caliber, though I hear Osama has a hard-on for Tesla.

No relation to Leo, but impressive, none the less. Very impressive. Not much is known about Dominique except that shock jock Howard Stern apparently picked her to be the next "Miss Howard TV." She's even ahead of Megan Fox in search trends on Google. Yowza! Who knew we'd live to see this day. People are finally getting over Megan Fox. Looks like she might have to take that next big leap to keep her career alive. And of course I'm talking about gettin' nakey. A word from Dominique: No comment.Dominique is too new on the scene to say anything that we can blatantly take out of context, but I'm guessing you're not too interested in her deep insights anyway. You want to see more voluptuous curves, and you want to see them now, damnit.Well look no further than after the jump!
Praise the autumnal equinox! With the changing of the leaves comes the changing of television programming, and while the Summer heat made me unconscionably sweaty, this season's new lineup has all my glands wide open. So clear your DVR's queue to make room for my personal favorites this Fall. I'm guaranteeing a fantastic time indoors away from parents, women, and cyborgs (don't pretend like they're not out there among us). Enjoy the following! What it's about: Winning Emmys.
Resident Evil 4 plot details have leaked like the drool that oozes from the corners of its target audience's mouth. It's been revealed that Ali Larter and Prison Break's Wentworth Miller have joined the cast. Larter will reprise her role as Claire Redfield and Miller's role is unknown at this point. Though his prison experience will come in handy due to the factor that the film's undead will besiege a prison in this installment. If they wanted an actor with prison experience, the producers should look no further than Tom Sizemore.

Christopher Walken Cooks a Chicken – Watch more Movie Trailers "The way your Dad looked at it, this Stove Top stuffing was your birthright. He'd be damned if anybody else was gonna put his greasy hands on his boy's birthright. So he hid it in the one place he knew he could hide something. This chicken. Forty-five long minutes, he had this stuffing up this chicken. Then when he had to run out to the grocery store, he gave me the chicken to put in the oven. I kept this chicken in the oven for fifteen more minutes. Then, after letting it sit, I placed it in this serving dish. And now, little man, I give the stuffing to you."

You may remember Jennifer Morrison from the two minutes she spent playing Captain Kirk's mommy in this past Summer's (today's the first day of Fall!) little indie Star Trek. If you happened to miss her birthing scene because you were buying Sour Patch Kids, you can see her a lot more on House M.D., which premieres its 6th season tonight on FOX. It looks like her character Cameron is going to marry Chase this year, which is interesting because those two were engaged in real life and broke it off right before the marriage. Talk about conflict! Let's hope some of the awkwardness shines through on screen. A word from Jennifer: "This isn't technically the normal way that medicine works."Oh great! Thanks for pulling back the curtain and revealing all the smoke and mirrors behind the magic of television. You're such a party-pooper, Jennifer. …But I'd still play doctor with you. Here are a few more pics of Jennifer after the jump that won't poop your party!
Tonight, President Obama will visit the Late Show with David Letterman, and is set to be the only guest (sorry if you got bumped). This is his sixth time on the show, but the first time back since his election, and the speculation is that he'll be using this appearance to talk about the future of health care in America. So what exactly might be said during his hour on late night TV? We gave that a think over here at Screen Junkies, and in the grand tradition of Dave, came up with a Top Ten list of our own. So here it is, an entirely speculative list… Top Ten Things Obama Might Say on Letterman
Neil Patrick Harris was the big winner last night at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards. His hosting prowess tied together an abnormally great show, drawing this rave review from Jon Stewart, "These shows, we've all been to a lot of these, they usually suck. And you've been very good." Highlights from the night include Ricky Gervais dressing down The Office cast, a visit from Dr. Horrible, and some news that will have scifi geeks everywhere cheering — Michael Emerson finally won a statue for his portrayal of Ben on LOST.

According to a new L.A. Times article, Paranormal Activity isn't just a film about a haunting; the film itself may actually be haunted – at least, if Steven Spielberg is to be believed. John Horn's article cites a source within Dreamworks as having said that, upon viewing a DVD screener at his Malibu home, Mr. Spielberg was inexplicably locked inside his bedroom and had to call a locksmith in order to get out. And upon his eventual release, the man who gave us Poltergeist tossed the screener in a trash bag and brought it straight back to the Dreamworks offices.Viral marketing hooey, or a legendary filmmaker genuinely freaked out by a film? Or even better… is there a standard def ghost in the Blu-Ray machine? Read the whole article over at the L.A. Times, where you can find out just how this scrappy $5000 do-it-yourself movie is being distributed by the folks behind Star Trek and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. And cower at the convincing scares in the trailer after the jump.

Let's just break the bad news right off the bat. Tiffany Dupont, who stars as Frannie Morgan in Greek, loves Christianity bunches and bunches. We're not saying there's anything wrong with being best friends with Jesus, but that likely means he's (He's?) putting the kibosh on sex until marriage, my friends. Damn! And I've got two strikes against me because A) we're not married and B) I'm as Jewish as the day (and the nose) is long. She'd bring me home to the folks and they'd probably throw holy water at me. Which would sting because on top of being Jewish I'm also a vampire. Awww that's THREE strikes! A word from Tiffany: "No, Mel Gibson was not involved."Yeah, that's what you think, Tiffany. But chances are he's pulling those strings from a secret laboratory in his Malibu mansion. Mel Gibson is always involved. Martin Riggs is probably even involved in these pics after the jump…
A few months back we told you about the upcoming Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters project that Gary Sanchez Productions had picked up from Dead Snow director Tommy Wirkola. Now Sanchez honcho Adam McKay spills a little bit about where the production is at. No casting has been announced (though he mentions Will Ferrell will sit this one out) but it does seem the film will be an effects-driven, monster slaying good time. Think of it like MiB meets Shrek. Random sidenote, Susan Boyle would be PERFECT for a live-action Shrek. (MTV) Morning links… Spike Lee and Robert Deniro venture into Alphabet City.

It's a known fact that President Obama is a bit of a sci-fi nerd, and any doubt was obliterated this week when he jousted with a lightsaber on the White House lawn during an announcement for Chicago's 2016 Olympics bid. The story blew up so big, even the guy picking his nose in the background of the photo became a bit of a celebrity on Digg (ironic, considering he was only digging himself).

Gillian Jacobs stars as Britta in the new sitcom Community, which starts tonight on the network that took away five blocks of scripted drama time so they could give Jay Leno his own show because they were afraid of losing his massive chin. Anyway…the sexy blond plays opposite "Talk Soup" dude Joel McHale and, drum roll please…Chevy Chase! That's right, folks, he's back! I know this post is supposed to be about Gillian, but come on, Chevy Chase is back, and he's supposed to be funny again. NBC should give HIM his own show five nights a week. Oh wait, FOX already did that back in '93… A word from Gillian: "I was actually watching a rerun the other day, and I was like, ‘I recognize that place! I've seen that swing before!'"Ah yes, the swing. It brings back so many fond memories. Memories of never having anyone to push you on it because you're a poor, ugly little orphan who's addicted to smack. Thanks for ripping that one out of a deep, dark place, Gillian!Here's some pics after the jump that'll get you swingin'!
If there's one thing Hollywood loves to do, it's run an idea into the ground. And when it comes to squeezing every last dime out of a concept, sequels are the studios' weapon of choice. But what happens when your film's main characters are dead, or your actors refuse to return for part two? A prequel. That’s what happens. From X-Men Origins to Van Wilder: Freshman Year, Hollywood has proven that all you need for a prequel is a loose back story, an established title, and a willingness to crap all over the memory of the original movie. On that note, here are seven awful prequels that are currently in production (in our minds). Shawshank Origins: Brooks Haven’t you always wondered about the mysterious origins of Brooks Hatlen, the librarian and resident "bird man" of Shawshank? No? Well screw you. That's what you're getting.
