A movie about Paul Giammatti removing his soul from his body and then trying to find it in the underground world of soul trafficking? That sounds indie-tastic! The only way to make Cold Souls have more indie credibility would be to cast a pretty but decidedly non-mainstream actress in a part. Enter Lauren Ambrose. She started in the mainstream on TV and the film Can't Hardly Wait (arguably one of the best teen movies in the 90s, but is that saying much?), but decided to stick with weirder and more intriguing projects than the cookie cutter stuff in Hollywood. She's well known for being the youngest of the Fisher family in the HBO series "6 Feet Under" and, of course, for her fiery red hair. Listen for her voice in the upcoming Spike Jonze film Where The Wild Things Are. A word from Lauren: " I came to L.A. to work and become a better actress, not to be a star." I guess that explains why she didn't go the path of fellow redhead Lindsay Lohan. Thank God for that. Check out more hot photos of Lauren after the jump!
Don't you hate when you're really revved up to see a movie based off its awesome trailer only to find that the best part of the movie IS the trailer? That's because the studio didn't allow the press to review the movie in advance. They know they have a crappy product and any bad reviews could hurt their opening weekend box office.Nowadays, early buzz is as important to a film as the star whose name appears above the title. A bad review could snowball into bad word of mouth and then Twitter gets a hold of it and the opening weekend is shot. Have a look at the recent releases of Funny People and Bruno. Both were anticipating to stack dollars into the stratosphere but due to early complaints about issues with length and penises (I feel ya) the films underperformed (that's how I roll).
Dennis Haskins, better known as Mr. Belding, is upset about being left out of the Saved By The Bell reunion that People magazine recently put together. Apparently Zack and the show's other main actors would only reunite if "creepy" Belding and Screech were excluded. "I earned the right to be there. If anybody deserved to be on that cover, it was Dennis Haskins," the actor explained to the Detroit News. "I want people to know it was not my choice not to be there, because I would have been there. It hurts my feelings, but I'll live." Not cool, you guys. Belding is just as much a part of the show as the rest of you. Just because he always leers at Jessie's chest while saying with a lecherous smile, "Loved you in Showgirls," is not reason enough to freeze him out. This is just like televised high school all over again. (NY Mag)Have a gander at these morning links…Trailer for Peter Jackson's latest The Lovely Bones.

Ong Bak 2: The Beginning Trailer – Watch more Movie TrailersOh man… Tony Jaa is back, and you know this one is gonna be better than the first Ong Bak flick 'cos there are waaay more elephants this time around and they're Jaa's energy source. (It was said he exploded three silhouetted heads in a childhood screening of Dumbo.) The teaser does its job not giving too much in the way of story (you can check out the synopsis after the jump) but that's moot. I'm of the mindset that the thinner the plot, the more likely Tony Jaa can use it to slice someone's scrotum off (after setting it on fire, of course).Even if you have crippling ADD, try to stay focused til the end of the trailer, where some nefarious villain type laughs heartily as if he were hearing Zack Galifianakis say "ritard" in The Hangover for the first time.Here are today's top links to make you feel all ri-tarded inside: Sophie Turner In A Smorgasbord Of Skimpy Outfits (Gorillamask)Suggestions For The New Alien Movie (Holytaco)Twilight Author Accused Of Stealing From 15 Year Old Girl… Makes Sense (Filmdrunk)55 Photos, 110 Babes, Lots Of Double Vision (Manofest)Holy Crap… 4 In 1 Game Table Is Awesome (Walyou)There's Already A Movie Trailer For The True Story Of A First Round 2009 NFL Draft Pick (Pajiba)7 Old Songs That Would Make Eminem Blush (Cracked)Apparently It's "Point Out How Awesome Betty White Is" Day On The Internet (Sickpigs)18 Things You Didn't Know About Megan Fox (Coedmagazine)Jessica Alba Is Hot Again In Swimsuits (Celebjihad)How To Get With A Hot Bartender (Mademan)Fedor Probably Won't Get Immediate Title Shot (Cagepotato)Where Are They Now?

Weeds has a variety of incredibly attractive women on it, but in comparison to other shows, it has the milf market cornered. Much is said about Mary-Louise Parker, but the unsung hot mom of the show is Elizabeth Perkins. Playing Celia Hodes, she nails the "raging bitch" role down pat, almost too well. It makes us hope her character experiences a softening-up that occurs as a result of her new relationship with an oddly juvenile co-worker, preferrably played by Tom Hanks. That, or we could all just watch Big again. Either way, she's still hot.A word from Elizabeth: "My sisters are very academically inclined so whenever they would fix me up, it would always be from someone in their world, people they would find attractive. When they came to the door in suits, it was over."Luckily, most of our readership don't own suits, so it seems like we have a shot! Check out more hot photos of Elizabeth after the jump!
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe wasn't just an awesome platform to sell toys. It was also a program that delivered good moral values to its young viewers, especially at the end of each episode (not unlike G.I. Joe).
Our scientists scoured the 'nets and assembled a collection of some of these lessons taught to us by He-Man and fellow Eternians… and then we thought about all the celebrities that could stand to learn from them.
Check out these lessons below. You might just learn something, too.
Paramount must realize the colossal turkey they have on their hands with G.I. Joe because now they're trying a new marketing approach… targeting dummies. A few weeks ago they directed their efforts on the Jersey Shore , now the LA Times is reporting that the advertising is focusing heavily on mid-America. The film is apparently embedded in the Kid Rock concert tour and advertising on giant screens in the Mall Of America. The message of this campaign being, it is your patriotic duty to see this movie. All right, fine. I love my country so I'll see this movie. Even though the post-traumatic stress will probably leave me a shell of my former self.

CLIPS REMOVED BY REQUEST OF LIONSGATE Well, seems like someone managed to sneak a camera into Hall H at Comic-con and snag all the clips from Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar's KICK-ASS presentation. But something tells me the filmmakers of this as-yet-unsold flick aren't gonna mind too much. Not only do they need more hype, but the above clip – and the rest, which you can see after the jump – are about as high quality as the bootleg DVDs my mom used to get me from Shanghai. So you're not gonna learn too much. To give you some perspective, the knock-offs looked like the DP replaced the camera lens with an empty Vaseline jar, and the subtitles read as if written by a schizophrenic (case in point: the Green Goblin in SPIDER-MAN was referred to as the "Gublin" and the "Green Lady.") But hey, I still got the gist, and you will too with these promising – I think – first looks.

Unlike Michael Bay, who hires models for every non-matronly female part in his films, Stephen Somers only hires models to play models in his upcoming G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra. The drop-dead gorgeous Karolina Kurkova will be playing the aptly nicknamed "Cover Girl," a former professional model who decided that runways and eating disorders were boring, and that blowing sh*t up in the army would be much more au courant. A word from Karolina: "Mother Nature made me the way I am, and I should be happy."Most men would high five Mother Nature's palms red for creating Karolina. Check out the photos of Karolina after the jump and turn your palms red! From all the clapping, of course.
Although his name has been attached to a slew of projects recently, Steven Spielberg has set his sights on Harvey as his next to direct. James Stewart starred in the original as a man who's best friend is a six-foot tall invisible rabbit. No word yet on casting or the unnecessary special effects that will bastardize this remake but let's see, who in Hollywood could pull off a protagonist who sees things that may or may not be there?

A Serious Man (2009) – Official Trailer #1 [HD] – Watch more Funny VideosJoel and Ethan Coen are back with A Serious Man. The film centers on a Jewish professor who seeks stability in his unraveling life. Known for their creative casting choices, the Coen Brothers have populated this cast with mostly unknowns. Apart from Adam Arkin and Richard Kind, I'm not really familiar with the cast (though the secretary did sound like Tony Todd.) If history serves I'm sure that this will be a great launching pad for the lead actor Michael Stuhlbarg. Why, that's practically a household name already. Just rolls off the tongue.

I'm as sick of the vampire craze as you (meaning to say I'm sick of Twilight and True Blood), but the new film from the badass Chan-wook Park, Thirst, intrigues the crap out of me. The film centers around a failed experiment that turns a devoted priest into a vampire, who has to battle to retain his humanity. Further confusing his situation is the beautiful Ok-vin Kim, who plays a woman in dire need of the priest's help. So now the priest has vampire problems and a beautiful woman challenging his whole celibacy deal. Outside of the flick, Kim is a young actress and model with a small list of credits so far. She also happens to know kung fu, which is always pretty awesome.A word from Ok-vin Kim: "I am not attracted to easy and simple roles… I only feel alive when I am challenged with difficult roles that push me to improve my acting skills"Well, we're attracted to the fact that you aren't attracted to easy and simple roles. Check out more hot photos of Ok-vin Kim after the jump!
By Roger Ebert*There is an ugly scene in Squirt In My Gape 3 that I want to tell you about. A young woman played by Bobbi Star has just had her gaping anus filled with both male and female ejaculate. We see the girl, pretty yet exhausted, contorting her body in such away as to avoid spilling the fluids. The cameraman moves in to give the audience the requisite close-up of the genetic ooze she is holding ever so precariously.?? We expect the scene to end, but it does not. The audience is left waiting for what seems like an eternity. Then, without warning, a bubble begins to form.
Though he's always been opposed, Larry David is finally caving and doing a Seinfeld reunion — on the new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. The fictional reunion will be the through-line of season seven with the original cast all appearing as themselves. Recently at the TCA press tour, David told critics what they can expect to see of the reunion. "You won't see the entire show. You'll see parts of the show. You'll get an idea of what happened (to the 'Seinfeld' characters) 11 years later." The series returns on September 20th and I personally am very excited to see what happens if Kramer is locked in a room with Leon or Crazy Eyez Killah.

Our friend Vince @ FilmDrunk has the best interview with a film's extra that I've ever read. You should read it if you want to get a look into the side of the biz that Ricky Gervais never quite captured in his little HBO show about those unsung folk known in proper Hollywood vernacular as "background" (because "extras" would imply they are extraneous, and Lord knows that when your protagonist is walking out of a building, or eating in a restaurant, there are always faceless bodies that need to be passing by). Otherwise sh*t just ain't real. Anyway, kudos on tracking down Mr. Tennant, Vince. Read the full coverage about MVP: MOST VALUABLE PRIMATE's real value HERE.
It seems like every Judd Apatow movie features a quick sex-oriented scene with Carla Gallo (see 40 Year Old Virgin, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Superbad, etc). The only problem with this is that she's only in one scene; she should be in more. She sticks around for only one scene in his newest flick Funny People, but we're such suckers for her we'll take what we can get. Hopefully, Apatow will learn that she should be more featured. Until then, she has a pretty good supporting role (meaning she's in more than one scene) as an up and coming porn actress in Californication. A word from Carla: "I love Urban Outfitters skinny jeans. And they're the right price!"She should do commercials for Urban Outfitters; her ability to exist in only one scene is perfect for commercial format (damn you Apatow!). Check out more hot photos of Carla after the jump!
Today, Hulu put up this new clip from the Robin Williams-starring WORLD'S GREATEST DAD, in which his character Lance Clayton makes nice with the old neighbor lady over some weed, bonds over zombies and informs her that his son (SPY KIDS' Darryl Sabara) is spying on her when she drops her top every night. What she does with the information might shock and appall you, which is perhaps why there's an age-check gate on this clip. We have not had a chance to see WORLD'S GREATEST DAD yet. The above clip is intriguing but the trailer showed even greater promise. Even Devin from CHUD.com, who seems to hate a lot of stuff out there, heaped praise on it. The film's already available via Video On Demand. If you're not sold, you can check out IGN's interview with director Bobcat Goldthwait after the jump.

A brand new red-band trailer for the Will Ferrell & Adam McKay-produced, Jeremy Piven-starring THE GOODS: LIVE HARD. SELL HARD has arrived on the nets and, boy of boy does she have a f**king mouth on her. I use the feminine to describe the trailer like one might describe a sailing vessel. But it also makes it a lot easier to segue into the fact that this trailer has problems keeping her shirt on. Yes, this one's got boobs aplenty on top of Piven and company's potty mouths. There's so much big, fake mammarage that I'm forced to put the trailer AFTER the jump, so as not to scar our younger audiences, who shouldn't be watching it in the first place.

CLEVELAND FROM FAMILY GUY – Watch more Funny VideosThe panel for the "The Family Guy" spinoff "The Cleveland Show" didn’t have as much hype as the panels that were premiering big movie trailers or had anything remotely to do with either Lost or Twilight. What it did bring, however, was laughs, and lots of them. Instead of rambling, the group of panelists, which included Seth Macfarlane, Mike Henry, Jamie Kennedy, and the rest of the principal cast, let the show speak for itself, showing an extended clip of the pilot and a clip of an episode airing in December…
I understand that there's a natural skepiticism when one is informed of a both funny and hot woman; theoretically, the two cannot exist together, as it defies all common logic. But make no mistake: Jessi Klein is both hot and funny. She's been doing standup and clip shows for quite some time, and is now not only writing, but acting as the show-within-a-show's producer, Marla, on "Michael And Michael Have Issues." Meanwhile, I'm still trying to hire a team of scientists that will tell me how she is biologically possible. A word from Jessi: "When I meet a guy for the first time, I have no problem with his eyes wandering south for a second to check out my rack—that’s when I steal a glance at the little slip of landscape peeking out from the collar of his shirt. Is it heavily forested, gently grassy, or just a desert-like stretch of flesh, with nary a hair in sight to provide shade?" What a very fair way to handle that situation. Check out some classy (meaning with clothing, because she respects herself) photos and some of Jessi's standup routine after the jump!
Channing Tatum in RTÉ.ies Exclusive G.I. Joe- Rise of Cobra C – Watch more Funny Videos A new scene from G.I.

"You scored in the top half-percent of all people we ever tested." In all fairness, we only tested you two. From there it plays out like a flirtation scene from every Saved By The Bell episode. In this version, Duke is Zack, Rip is Slater, Scarlett is Jessie, and Dustin Diamond is still a poor man's Corey Feldman.These links will not urinate all over your childhood memories… Aida Iveliz Hangs Out At The Hot Tub (Gorillamask)Mike Vick's Prison Haikus (Holytaco)Ryan Gosling Fills Gas Can, Poses For Philanthropic Photo (Filmdrunk)25 Rare (And Awesome) Star Wars Photos (Manofest)Awesome 3D Robot Greeting Cards (Walyou)Ben Affleck Squares Off Against Jon Hamm (Pajiba)7 High Tech Products And Their Cheap Ingredients (Cracked)Madonna Might Have The Scariest Arms In The History Of Arms (Celebjihad)5 Gadgets To Make You Faster (Mademan)Josh Barnett Caught With Roids For Third Time (Cagepotato)Why Olivia Munn Is An Evil Genius (Unrealitymag)How To Buy Your Lady A Vibrator (Asylum)Spilled Beer = Death For Phillies Fans (Bustedcoverage)10 Mike Vick Signs That Should Be On Television This Season (Uncoached)Scoring Chicks At A Bar: Skill Or Simple Math?

Fellow Junkies, Comic-Con has come and gone, as has Screen Junkies from San Diego. It was our first ever trip down to Comic-Con and it will not be our last, but we learned a lot. Mostly, we learned that you have to surrender to the fact that you can't cover EVERYTHING at Comic-Con. Here's everything we DID cover: AVATAR Video clips of James Cameron speaking about AVATAR just moments after having unveiled 25-minutes of the film to Hall H @ Comic-Con.
EXTRACT Panel @ Comic-Con Pt. 1 – Watch Movie Trailers After the promising SOLOMON KANE presentation in Hall H, the crowd at Comic-Con was buzzing for geek legend Mike Judge to make a return to his OFFICE SPACE form with his latest flick, EXTRACT. He was joined on stage by cast members Jason Bateman and Mila Kunis, as well. Comedienne du jour Kristen Wiig could not make it because of filming commitments in New Mexico. To Bateman's credit, he was running on an hour's worth of sleep, having just wrapped on the same shoot at 5am, which, it's safe to say, is Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Greg Mottola's alien comedy PAUL…
Alright, I'll admit, when I think of what alien-themed Summer flick our reader's will appreciate hearing about, I don't jump to Aliens in the Attic, I think of District 9. However, having been lucky enough to have seen District 9 (review coming soon), I can note that the movie has a distinct lack of hot young Disney stars. Aliens in the Attic, on the other hand, has the beautiful Ashley Tisdale. The High School Musical actress seems to be keeping close to the kids movie/Disney path, so we can't expect to see her in any badass action films like District 9 just yet, but isn't her squeaky clean demeanor part of her appeal?A word from Ashley: "My agent didn`t want me on Disney because I`m older. But honestly, I`m not ready for older roles yet, or even the things older girls do. I am still young."Don't worry, we checked, and she's chronologically old enough for us to recommend that you check out more hot photos of Ashley after the jump!
Everyone's been talking – including us – about Matthew Vaughn and Mark Millar's KICK-ASS as being the sleeper hit of Comic-Con 2009, but there's another film deserving of some geek love, and that's SOLOMON KANE, whose panel had the fortune of being sandwiched in between Saturday's LOST: THE FINAL SEASON and EXTRACT presentations in the San Diego Convention Center's imposing 6000+ seat Hall H…
Director: Michael J. BassettCast: James Purefoy, Pete Postlethwaite, Mackenzie Crook, Max von SydowSynopsis: The movie tells the origins of Solomon Kane and is hoped to be the first of a trilogy of movies. When the story opens Kane is a mercenary of Queen Elizabeth I fighting in Africa, but after an encounter with a demon, The Reaper, he realizes he must seek redemption or have his soul damned to Hell. He returns to England and lives a life of peace, converting to puritanism, but soon the doings of an evil sorcerer upset his plans and he must take up arms again.
A militant Palestinian group is angry about their portrayal in Brüno and are now threatening to kill Sacha Baron Cohen according to a report from the Times Online. Cohen is taking the threat seriously and has upped his security. In the film, his alter ego tells Mr. Abu Aita, a member of the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, that "Al-Qaeda is so 2001" and that "Osama looks like a kind of dirty wizard or homeless Santa.” I can understand Baron Cohen's fear but if I were him I would counter with the hard to refute statement, 'How about you don't?'Nothing threatening about these links… Family Guy episode aborted.
