LESBIAN VAMP KILLERS RED BAND CLIP

Tuesday, March 17 by

Our friends over at Dread Central posted the new Red Band clip for the upcoming Lesbian Vampire Killers flick, which is an adaptation of a Jane Austen novel, of course. LVK is shaping up to be a pretty good piece of camp cinema, if I do say so myself.  And I just did.  So click for the jump, sit back, relax, and have some good, sexy, bloodsucking laughs courtesy of Momentum Pictures.  (We've also included the trailer, as well as some kickass poster art and stills.)

KNOWING’S ROSE BYRNE

Tuesday, March 17 by

This Friday, Rose Byrne will be teaming up with Nic Cage in the supernatural apocalyptic actioner Knowing, directed by The Crow and Dark City's Alex Proyas. Where You've Seen Her: Rose, an Aussie, is probably best known for her role opposite Glen Close in FX's Damages.  But she also made memorable turns as Scarlet in 28 Weeks Later, as Briseis in Troy, and as Cassie in Danny Boyle's Sunshine. She also had a minor role as one of Natalie Portman's doppelgangers in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.  Pointless Quote: "I see myself more as a character actress than a celebrity."  See more pics of Rose after the jump!

12 More Insanely Bad TV Commercials

Tuesday, March 17 by

A while back we scoured the internet to bring you a collection of the worst local tv ads. We ended up finding so many that we had to give you more. This time around the selection is far crazier and far crappier. Crapzier. “Enjoy!" JONES BIG ASS TRUCK RENTAL & STORAGE This is actually a fake but it’s a charming fake so it’s too hilarious to not include. Which is a shame because if he were real, I’m sure that Toby Jones would be crowned King of Them Internets. DYNAMIC PAWN SHOP

“LEP’ IN THE HOOD” END CREDITS RAP

Tuesday, March 17 by

 Nothing says St. Patrick's Day like a Leprechaun commandeering the mic at a strip club and then proceeding to wax lyrical about his roots.  He's quite the M.C., but I suppose that's par for the course with a mythical goblin who speaks in anapestic line verse.  That's poetry terminology, son!  I'd like to imagine that the little guy stayed around to intro the featured strippers when they come out to do their pole dance on stage.

Happy St. Patty's Day, Homer Simpson.  Variety reports that an "Irish-themed episode of The Simpsons will air in Ireland and the UK" tonight.  It's the first time ever that the show has premiered an episode outside the US.  Oh, the luck of the Irish.  The episode revolves around St. Patrick's Day, so perhaps for the first time as well, we'll get to see green Duff.  Hello, 7-11 marketing department…  Don't worry, though; the episode, entitled "In the Name of the Grandfather," will air stateside this sunday.

NATALIE PORTMAN CAST IN THOR?

Monday, March 16 by

Nikki Finke's Deadline Hollywood Daily reports that Natalie Portman is the frontrunner to play the female lead in Kenneth Branagh's screen adaptation of Marvel Comics' Thor.  I don't know about you, but when I think of Natalie Portman, I think of Jewish American Princess, not Asgardian Goddess.  Then again, they can do a lot with a blonde wig these days… In any case, there aren't a lot of chicks in Thor's world.  At least, not many with juicy roles.  So it leads me to wonder if she'd be playing Amora the Enchantress… Thor's arch enemy and sometimes lovaaaah.  If that's the case… I'm thinking we need some other casting possibilities in the mix, you know, just to keep Natalie on her toes.  Here are some ideas:

House Recap: Here Kitty

Monday, March 16 by

This episode starts off with House in his office making a miniature racetrack. He races model cars on a track made out of medical supplies. Cuddy comes into the room and tells House he should have been helping patients, instead of making a racetrack. Cuddy introduces him to a new patient. After Cuddy leaves the room, the patient seizes and pees green urine. Thus begins another episode of House. House is with the team in his office writing on the ‘symptoms board’ in green pen. Taub is late and in a bad mood. He questions House’s decision to choose this patient. House punishes Taub for his disobedience. House orders the team to test the patient’s home for outside influences that would make her pee green.

WATCHMEN GAME GOES FULL FRONTAL

Monday, March 16 by

After noticing Watchmen's Box Office numbers slip 65% in its second weekend, we thought to ourselves, why aren't they marketing this film toward female retirees looking for some full frontal male nudity?  Because, man, there's enough blue penis in this movie to make Vanity Smurf come out of his tiny closet.Well, some folks over at Liquid Generation are helping keep the Watchmen buzz alive at the other end of the age spectrum, and figured that gamers like their penis 8 bits at a time.  Check out this Kung Fu-inspired scrolling actioner featuring a monster… ahem… swordfight… after the jump. 

MACGYVER TO BE FEATURE FILM?

Monday, March 16 by

The Hollywood Reporter breaks the news that TV's MacGyver will be getting the big screen treatment through Raffaella Productions, run by Raffaella De Laurentiis, daughter of Dino De Laurentiis.  Dino will executive produce.  Now, everyone knows that MacGyver is the world's most ingenious adventurer.  He can take a rubber band, a watch and a graphite pencil and make a low-grade bomb to break through a prison wall.  He can use a bowl, a spoon and a can of Campbell's Chunky Soup to overthrow a South American dictator.  You try to do that, Donovan McNabb's mom!Ultimately, though, it's the Mullet that makes the MacGyver.  And we at Screen Junkies thought we could help drastically in the De Laurentiis clan's quest to cast the big screen MacGyver by putting several leading men through what we like to call: The MacMullet Test.See our contenders after the jump and vote for your favorite in the comments section (or feel free to suggest others).  The De Laurentiis family – and MacGyver: The Movie – need your help!

Terminator TSCC Recap: Today is the Day

Monday, March 16 by

John copes with the loss of his girlfriend while those close to him point fingers at his suspicious cyborg. Sound AdviceJessie sits pondering in an easy chair with Riley’s corpse on the floor beside her.  A flashback occupies her mind.  In it, Derek is explaining to Jessie that he is going on a mission.  He warns her to always aim for the chip (when executing Terminators), kisses her and tells her he’ll see her later.  The flashback ends. After a moment, Jessie stands and zips up the plastic body bag covering John Connor’s late girlfriend.  Sarah is packing things into boxes when John walks in.  It’s pretty clear what’s going on–they’re moving again–so John offers to take care of the garage.  He finds Cameron there, mulling over robot parts.  Afraid of what his mother might do if she finds them, John tells Cameron to bury them so they can be incinerated later. Bad News

MORNING NEWS ROUNDUP

Monday, March 16 by

This morning I woke up to discover that character actor Ron Silver had died of cancer at age 62.  Silver is probably best known for his work in dramas like The West Wing, Chicago Hope and as the villain in Timecop.  But he also made one of the funniest self-deprecating turns in unaired TV show history when he played the villain – and himself – in the Ben Stiller-created, Jack Black-starring Heat Vision Jack.  See the clip after the jump. And now, the rest of the news… Sam Raimi Talks Remakes & Evil Dead 4! (IGN) Awesome Concept Art from The Goon (/Film) ex-NFL'er Michael Strahan to Follow in OJ Simpson's Path – minus the murder part. (Variety) Thoughts on SXSW screening of Bruno.  Vassup! (AICN) Exclusive I Love You, Man Clip (ComingSoon.Net)
