The success of Taken has prompted Hollywood to churn out more father-turned-Terminator flicks. In the funny accent tour-de-force Edge of Darkness, Mel Gibson stars as a Boston detective searching for answers in the murder of his daughter. Was she killed in an attempt on his life or does the reason behind her assassination go much deeper? Mel intends to find out by smashing every window, door, and face in Suffolk County. We haven't seen Mel this riled up since he wanted his son back in Ransom. Written by William Monahan (The Departed) and directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale), it seems to have a hint of Mel's fingerprints on it as well. "Well you had better decide if you're hanging on the cross or banging in the nails." I knew he couldn't go 2:30 seconds without holy rolling! (Yahoo)
If you watched old school WWF, "The Super Mario Bros. Super Show" or a Cyndi Lauper music video from the 1980s, then you've experienced the force of nature that was Captain Lou Albano. WWE issued a statement announcing that Captain Lou passed away today at the age of 76. No cause of death has been cited at the time of this post. You will be missed, Captain Lou. We at Screenjunkies will don Hawaiian shirts and attempt to adorn our facial hair with your trademark rubber bands as soon as we can grow beards.

Hellooooooo hot daughter. You may have seen Eva Amurri hanging out with Susan Sarandon since Susan is this fine young woman's mother. Can't you notice the resemblance, you know, in the face…? The surname 'Amurri' comes from Eva's father, an Italian film director. I don't know if she got any of his assets, but the overall mixture of genes worked out splendidly.A word from Eva: "Stripping is not easy, I will tell you."Ehhhh, I don't believe you. Instead of telling me, why don't you go ahead and show me how difficult it is. Oh wait, you'll never read this post? I guess additional pics of you in low-cut attire will have to suffice.And here those are after the jump!
Just yesterday, The Hollywood Reporter announced that super-agency CAA had signed Weekly World News to its impressive roster of clients. The theory was that the now-defunct fake tabloid publication has a bevy of untapped properties, of which poster boy "Bat Boy" is just one… and that its characters could "give Marvel a run for its money." That remains to be seen. But will Hollywood greet Weekly World News's freak show with a hearty handshake (artist's rendering above)? Or will WWN be booted out of Tinseltown's glitzy gates faster than you can say "We're stripping Bat Boy of his co-EP credit…"? So, WWN, we're going to do you a favor. Here are our suggestions for spinning the raw materials you already have into box office GOLD!
Sylvester Stallone's throwback to gritty, non-CGI action, The Expendables, just premiered its trailer. In it you see ample amounts of gunfire, explosions, waterboarding, and dissing of the Chinese guy.
After about a minute of watching the above clip, entitled "The Golden Age of Video" by Ricardo Autobahn, I had already lost count of all the movie and TV shows clips that went into its making. It's impressive stuff. And for the most part, these are some pretty classic lines that Autobahn picked. To place them together in a rhyme scheme and all that… well… hell that's called poetry, class.

Honest to blog, it's Olivia Thirlby! I hope I just made your skin crawl with that tid bit of too-clever-for-its-own-good dialogue from Juno. Olivia delivered it as best as she could, though, and turned the character of Juno's semi-slutty best friend Leah into a memorable one. Now you can look for her as "Actress" in New York, I Love You, where hopefully the screenwriter put words in her mouth that people actually say in real life. A word from Olivia: "Last year's Sundance was a big deal, This year, I don't care what I wear. For me, it's just another crazy day."Sounds like a day in the life of me, Olivia. I'm wearing a trash bag secured to my body with a poorly knotted rope-belt, and I'm pretty sure they're serving dove tacos at lunch. Just another crazy day at the office!And here are some more crazy, sexy, cool pics after the jump!

You're a big fan of some Hollywood celebrity. You want to learn more about their private lives. And Us Weekly's "Stars: They're just like us!" section stopped being riveting after you found out Christian Slater drinks Starbucks. You want to learn the dirt… the real dirt… but you don't want to have to root through the celeb's trash bins for goodies. All that usually gets you is a bunch of hot garbage and a night in jail where hot garbage smell is an aphrodisiac for your cell mates. Well, thanks to the internet, you can now just hack into her Netflix account. After all, sometimes a DVD rental queue is much more telling than a heap of old groceries, anyway.

This entire week we're focusing on the girls of New York, I Love You, an anthology of filmic love letters to NYC, which opens this Friday. Our first girl is Rachel Bilson, who holds a special, warm, pillow-topped place in my otherwise jaded heart. If only she wasn't engaged to Anakin Skywalker we could run away together and live happily ever after on a tropical island, relying simply on coconut milk and intense passion as sustenance. I'd even forgive her for starring in Jumper, and that takes a ton of will power on my part. I mean, did you even see that movie, Rachel? Not even Sam Jackson's platinum blond hair could save it. A word from Rachel: "It's great playing someone who is not like me at all. I'm really a nice girl, so it's fun to be a bitch, then come home and be myself again." I feel the same way about my role at work. Boy, do I act like a big, catty bitch around the office. It's all about "Talk to the hand" this, and "Have some scalding hot coffee in your face" that. It's exhausting to keep up the persona. Here are some pics of a nice girl being naughty after the jump!
We're surprised it took the Adult Entertainment wizards this long to come up with this, but after having headed into its fourth season, Showtime's "Dexter" has been honored with its own porn spoof. Sort of ironic that a show whose marketing campaign has been so reliant on clever puns has had to wait that long for an industry founded on puns (and intercourse) to do a sexy sendup. For those of us not counting back end points, this is way cooler than syndication… The official press release, courtesy of the very NSFW news publication Porn Valley News (which we can't even link to because it's so dirty), reads:
(The hands that won the Superbowl.) Would you like to see a trailer for Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard's subversive horror flick The Cabin In The Woods? Well, friend, look no further than right here… about a year from now. MGM has announced that they are pushing the film's release date to early 2011(!) so that they may convert the film to 3D and capitalize on the hot, new trend. Sounds like a risky plan to me. Anything could happen between now and 2011. The financially-shakey MGM could go under; 3D could be yesterday's news; Whedon's fans may get girlfriends who won't let them watch horror films; or we could all fall victim to the dreaded Y2K10 Bug which will wipe out all technology as we know it.

Becki Newton plays Amanda on Ugly Betty, which starts its new season tonight on ABC. She's sassy, sexy, and seems to like to get wild underneath the sheets. Now this is all based on Amanda's character traits on the show, mind you, but it's comforting to assume that Becki herself also possesses these proclivities. Bad news is she's married. Booooo! At least one thing is evident in the picture above: Becki likes pearl necklaces. And this means only two things for her husband. He's doling out a ton of cash at Zales or, he's doling out a ton of…well you get how double entendres work. A word from Becki: "I make myself laugh all day long."Sounds like a serious debilitating disorder. If this laughter is involuntary you might want to run the problem by your physician. He could prescribe you some medication, or wrap you up in a straight jacket. Don't let the latter option deter you from seeking help.Here are some pics that'll keep you smiling all day long after the jump!
Couples Retreat is sponsoring Break Media this week, so I’m going to go ahead and describe the film as a hilarious look at real world problems faced by married couples.But when it comes to looking at the real world problems of married couples, not all films are so friggin' hilarious. In fact, some movies might just ruin your crappy marriage!If you ever want to get married, or you‘re already married and want to stay that way, I recommend you avoid these seven films like Bryan Singer avoids vagina.(Click on the posters to watch each movie's trailer.)Private Parts
The online campaign to convince comedian/cuckoo bird Tracy Morgan to join Twitter has bore fruit.

Alison Brie is pulling double duty this season, starring in two critically acclaimed shows. One is a compelling drama and the other a chuckle-loaded comedy. It must be quite a challenge transforming from Pete Campbell's doting wife on Mad Men to uptight college student Annie on Community. I wonder if she ever gets them mixed up? Does she ever arrive on Mad Men as her Annie character, giving her husband sass instead of a neat scotch? No, I imagine she'd get a slap across the face from Matthew Weiner for such insubordination. And if it were vice versa on the set of Community, you'd better believe Chevy Chase would berate her until tears rolled down from those big, blue eyes. We could hope it would all be in good fun, but back in the day Chevy used to make actresses cry for sport. A word from Alison: "When I was in college and growing up I was like, 'It's comedy for me! I'm so funny!'"Take it easy there, Alison. You've proven yourself as a dramatic actress, but we still haven't seen enough of the sitcom to be convinced of your comedic chops. Talk to the writers and see if they can work in some pratt falls and spit takes, and possibly a bottle of seltzer water. Then you're sure to get our vote.Check out more pics after the jump that are funny in a hot way!

The latest trailer for "The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus" is up over at Yahoo and it's more mind-bending than you would expect from Gilliam. The movie looks incredible and could be the one that allows Terry Gilliam to reclaim his place on the A-list. Tom Waits as the Devil and Jude Law as Heath Ledger? Insane. The trippy visuals look like what you would see if you played Candyland while smoking Salvia. Which, incidentally, I have a ton of if you're interested in buying. Just come find me in my van.

Paramount's low-budget scream fest Paranormal Activity is quickly becoming one of the best reviewed films of the year. But to this date, it's only playing in a handful of theaters. They're planning on expanding the film's distribution, but it's up to YOU to make that happen. Yes, for the first time ever, a movie's theatrical run will be democratized. You don't have to take our word as to just how F-ing scary good this movie is. But if you want to, you can read our glowing review here, or just check out the trailer, which gives virtually nothing away. But MOST IMPORTANTLY, you need to visit Eventful's site, where you can click a little "DEMAND IT!" button and essentially sign the petition to give Paranormal Activity a nationwide release. And don't we all love full releases?Be a part of movie history. Hell, click the button even if you don't want to see it. Of course, if you feel like reacquainting your pants with your feces, then we recommend buying a ticket to the flick, too.

Julie Bowen stars as Claire Dunphy on Modern Family, and she's basically the Marge to Ty Burrel's Homer Simpson character. Or the Lois to his Peter Griffin. Like those animated female woman, she is also sexy and savvy, but more importantly she's a tangible human being. You've probably seen Julie all over television. She always seems to light up the screen with her classic good looks and clear complexion. She has her early commercial work for Neutrogena to thank for that flawless skin. Has anyone ever looked more lovely splashing water on their face in slow motion? I think not. A word from Julie: "It's lived in perpetuity, that big frozen orb of dyed hair."Julie is referring to her role as Virginia Venit in Happy Gilmore. Sure, maybe her hair looks funny in it, but I think most of us were paying more attention to the sprinkler-soaked white teddy she wore and the two pitchers of beer she was holding. Ahhh… dream sequences. I'll drink to that. Here are some more pics to raise your glass to after the jump!
Huge news that, if true, could produce a film that either rejuvenates one of the best comedy franchises in movie history, or could destroy the film industry forever. Yes, I'm talking about the fact that New Line/Warner Bros. have signed Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin to produce and possibly direct a National Lampoon's Vacation sequel. Now, I'm someone who doesn't even consider Vegas Vacation a part of the franchise. It's why I've enjoyed referring to the Griswold's misadventures over the years as, "The Vacation Trilogy." After all, "Trilogy" has a nice ring to it and aside from Rusty's Mr. Papageorgio subplot and the casting of Marisol Nichols as daughter Audrey Griswold… Vegas Vacation was about as much fun as arriving at Wally World only to find out it's closed for remodeling.

Following in the footsteps of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Glover, Adrien Brody has signed on to battle alien big game hunters in Robert Rodriguez's Predators. Brody will play a badass fighting for survival on an alien planet alongside Alice Braga, Danny Trejo, Walt Goggins, Oleg Taktarov, Mahershalalhashbaz Ali, and Louiz Ozawa. Topher Grace is also rumored to be joining the project. I can't buy Adrien's "GRRR. I'm tough!" routine.
