Christina Ricci To Star As Yellow Crayon
Thursday, November 20 by

Me, In Kindergarten: “I LOVE the color yellow.” Girl sitting next to me: “Yeah, well why don’t you marry it?” Me: “Listen, I know we’re both young but we’re smart enough to understand that it’s legally and much less physically implausible to marry a color.” Girl sitting next to me: “Shut up, you’re stupid.” 23 years l

Ridley Scott Talks Blood Meridian
Wednesday, November 19 by

I went to a screening of The Wrestler yesterday. The review is coming up. In short, it basically bodyslams every other movie, ever.  Another one that I’m anticipating is Ridley Scott’s interpretation of Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian. It’s either going to be amazing or terrible. But either way it's going to be bloody.

Holiday season is upon us again and what better way to say "Merry Christmas" to your grandma than by giving her a gift she can't refuse!  She'll be filled with joy as she clenches for her heart medication. Click for more!

Sam Kinison Biopic Finds Home At HBO
Tuesday, November 18 by

Brother Sam: The Short, Spectacular Life of Sam Kinison is one that we can get excited by. Why? Because the script was written by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, the writer-directors of American Splendor, the stellar movie that really put Paul Giamatti on the map.

A Fanboy Rants: Why Star Trek Will Be Amazing
Tuesday, November 18 by

So now that Abrams and company have finally seen it fit to bestow upon the world the long-awaited Star Trek trailer, we already have complaints sprouting up like little weeds all around the web.

Rose McGowan Is Red Sonja
Monday, November 17 by

Robert Rodriguez is producing Red Sonja and Rose McGowan is going to play the lead. Wait, why is Rose McGowan playing Red Sonja? Oh right, her boyfriend is producing the movie. It’s way easier to land a role if you’re already nailing the person in charge of casting.

Monday Mashup: The Incredibles of Solace
Monday, November 17 by

The Incredibles was the first Pixar movie I saw. It's still in my top 20.

Mickey Rourke Comeback Continues
Monday, November 17 by

Killshot is the second movie that will feature previously dead actor Mickey Rourke. People are already talking Oscar for his role in The Wrestler. Although you'll have to wait until Jan 16th to see it, Joblo has a new poster.

Olga Kurylenko Throws Off Her Bonds
Friday, November 14 by

Quantum of Solace opens today and its expected to smash the weekend box office.  In that case I might just stay home tonight and watch this video of Olga Kurylenko's Maxim magazine photo shoot over and over again and wait for the lines to die down. Check it out.

Hot New Watchmen Theatrical Trailer
Friday, November 14 by

Call me CRAZY, but I’m going to mix things up a little bit and start the day off with a trailer. Everyone is excited about this one. And not without good reason. Watch, and you shall see.

SNL Adds 2 To The Cast
Thursday, November 13 by

Abby Elliott and Michaela Watkins have been added to the SNL cast. Elliot is the daughter of Chris Elliot, making her a second generation SNL performer. I gotta be honest, she doesn’t seem that funny. Video evidence after the MORE button.

Arrested Development Movie In The Works
Thursday, November 13 by

It’s being reported that Jeffry Tambor told Collider that the Arrested Development movie is a go.

Paris Hilton and Pee Wee In ‘Happiness’ Sequel
Wednesday, November 12 by

This is a nice fit for the You Cant Make This Stuff Up category. I’m still only partially recovered from the first installment. Which I watched 8 years ago.  I hope there’s a Paul Reubens Paris sex scene that involves lots of crying and something having to do with stuffed animals and childhood.  

Woman Treats Her Beaver Right
Wednesday, November 12 by

From Videogum. This is an amazing video (after the jump). I think that Axe Body Spray should make one where they show a French Canadian Trapper using their product in various woodsman snares trying to capture a beaver.

Hobbit House Makeover Show Looks Promising
Wednesday, November 12 by

Another day, another gem from Wonderglen productions. Remeber folks "In the world of high-pressure Hobbit Contracting, tensions can rise, and tempers can flare." That is SO TRUE. 

Ridley Scott To Direct Monopoly Movie?
Wednesday, November 12 by

I will always contend that Hollywood ran out of original ideas quite a while ago. The name of the game these days is just finding whatever they can, grabbing it while it’s dropping its dry cleaning off, throwing it in the back of an unmarked van, and driving it to a big warehouse in Burbank where they beat a story out of it.

New Watchmen Posters
Tuesday, November 11 by

See, here’s how I’m different than this lady. I don’t go out at three. I start drinking around noon, and usually start doing stupid stuff by roughly midnight. By three a.m.

James Franco Salutes Aidan Weinglass
Tuesday, November 11 by

More from Wonderglen Productions. James Franco narrates a compelling piece detailing the work of one of the company's Chief Execs. I had no idea he was involved in the Airwolf AIDS episode. That one was truly compelling.     

Race For Wonder Woman Heats Up
Tuesday, November 11 by

Looks like the contentious battle to land the role as America’s next Wonder Woman has gotten a little more competitive. This is a poster just released from the Betty White Camp.

Another day dawning across this great land of ours, another step toward total racial reconciliation. We reported yesterday that Beyonce is looking to star in the remake of Wonder Woman.

Jessica Alba To Play A Prostitute
Monday, November 10 by

Call me strange, unconventional, or absolutely out of my friggin' mind, but  I like the idea of combining Jessica Alba's reported role as a prostitute with her character in Fantastic 4.  I think the country needs a forcefield wielding super hero street walker with the power of invisibility.

Who The Hell Is Bill Bouchard?

 It takes a little digging on Wonderglen’s intranet. But you find some pretty amazing stuff.  Here are a few parts to check out:

I’m probably late to the party for this one. And even though it’s more like a recut, it’s damn funny.

Beyonce To Play Wonder Woman?
Monday, November 10 by

Riding on the wave of total racial reconciliation that has finally swept our fine country, Beyonce is putting her bid in to the world’s first Black Wonder Woman. It’s going to be a tough fight for the part.

New Mexico’s Next Wingman?
Friday, November 7 by

Whaaaa? Val Kilmer is pondering the idea of running for the office of governor in New Mexico. Hopefully my prayers will be answered and shirtless volley ball becomes recognized as the official state sport. Oh to dream!  Until then, here's some links.

Australia Feature Trailer
Friday, November 7 by

I saw this trailer while watching the election returns on MSNBC the other night. I noticed two things about it. One, the music is dope. Two, it is quite possible that this movie is actually a remake of The Gods Must Be Crazy.  Irrefutable video proof after the jump.

Whatever your stance on the acting abilities of V. Vaughn may be, few can deny the contentious, often violent debate that erupts surrounding his Yule-timed movies. We’re giving two ardent, impassioned readers of Screenjunkies a chance to have their opinions heard. We hope you enjoy. Yours Truly. Max Powers, Editor At Large.
