9 Inappropriate Movie Costumes

Thursday, October 14 by

Halloween is only a few weeks away, which means there’s not much time to nail down a costume. And as the clock winds down, many people will look to Hollywood for inspiration. That being said, does the world really need another moron running around in a Scream mask? Do we really want another group of douche bags dressed up like the guys from The Hangover. I think not.

If you’re going to dress up like a movie character, at least do something that hasn’t been done before! Granted, that’s a tall order, considering pretty much everything has been done before. But we here at Screen Junkies are here to help. We came up with this list of characters that, for the most part, have remained an untapped Halloween resource. Sure, they might be a tad “offensive,” but wouldn’t you rather be hated than unoriginal?

Some Billionaire Kid Wants His ‘Top Gun 2′

Thursday, October 14 by

Smack dab in the middle of the Danger Zone.
27-year-old billionaire financier David Ellison loves two things most in this world: counting money and flying. He helped finance and starred in the film Flyboys, and now he wants to head down the highway to the Danger Zone with Top Gun 2. Vulture reports that Paramount is pitching the sequel to Tony Scott, Jerry Bruckheimer, and Tom Cruise, knowing full well that Ellison will pick up a huge chunk of the tab.
The studio has also talked with Christopher McQuarrie about writing the script. McQuarrie and Cruise are BFFs after working together on Valkyrie. The original Maverick has agreed to a small part in the film, "provided it's not too 'obvious' a part." Looks like flying jets is out. Damn, that would have been a really cool way to see Maverick. Maybe he can just repair the new pilot's motorcycle and offer sage advice. No word yet if Val Kilmer, the Ice Man himself, will be involved in the project. If he wants a not too obvious part he could try out for the tarmac.

Ben Kingsley and Noomi Rapace Take ‘The Last Voyage Of Demeter’

Thursday, October 14 by

Judging from the picture above, you would think that Ben Kingsley and Noomi Rapace were starring together in I'm Too Sexy, the Right Said Fred biopic. That, however, is not the case. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Guy Who Got Knighted Despite Being In 'BloodRayne' have joined The Last Voyage Of Demeter.
The film follows the story of the crew that transported Dracula's coffin from Transylvania to England. If you're familiar with Bram Stoker's Dracula, you'll remember that crew arrives dead. So keep that in mind before your next cruise. Dracula is a total a-hole to travel with. (LA Times)

‘Zoolander 2’ Script Has Roles for Will Ferrell, Jonah Hill

Thursday, October 14 by

The script for Zoolander 2 is almost complete, and it looks like most of the cast from the original film will return. Aside from Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell will also be reprising his role as the evil Jacobim Mugatu. However, it seems there's going to be some new blood on the set, as Jonah Hill is likely to join the cast.

The plot involves Derek Zoolander and his friend Hansel trying to return to the world of male modeling despite the fact they are now considered too old for the business. That may or may not turn out to be a funny premise, but as long as there's at least one gasoline fight in the film, I'll walk away happy. (Latino Review)

Michael J. Fox Recreates ‘Back to the Future’ Teaser

Wednesday, October 13 by

Michael J. Fox returns as Marty McFly to recreate the teaser for the original Back to the Future movie film. Still not quite sure why the Spike Scream Awards is the event reuniting the cast of BTTF, but whatever. It'll be good to see Lea Thompson out and about for the first time since "Caroline in the City."

Rhys Ifans Will Be The Lizard in ‘Spider-man’

Wednesday, October 13 by

Marvel wasn't just going to let DC own the day by announcing Tom Hardy will be a villain in the next Batman. Nuh uh. They've just announced that recently cast Rhys Ifans will be playing Dr. Curt Connors a.k.a. The Lizard in Marc Webb's Spider-man reboot. Poor Dylan Baker. He had to keep his arm inside of his shirt for the previous Spider-man movies, pretending that he was an amputee, and he never even got the chance to turn into a reptile.
Spider-man hits theaters in 3D July 3, 2012. You'll probably hear more about this movie before then. (TheWrap)

Eddie Murphy Joins Brett Ratner’s ‘Tower Heist’ Because Nothing Matters Anymore

Wednesday, October 13 by

From that time all these guys were in Paris together.
Trying to break up his stint of accepting bad movie roles, Eddie Murphy has decided to appear in a bad movie role that won't require a fat suit. Not to be worn by him at least. Murphy will be joining Ben Stiller in Brett Ratner's Tower Heist.
This the second time that Murphy was attached to this film. He was the initial star years ago while it was in development. He passed, then Chris Rock passed, and then Chris Tucker passed. Then Ben Stiller (the next logical choice) took over the role. No word yet on which supporting character Murphy will play, but I've got a good feeling that Ben Stiller will learn the consequences of touching his radio. (EW)

‘Jackass 3D’s Dumbest Injuries, Most Brilliant Stunts

Wednesday, October 13 by

You may be excited to see what crazy new stunts they try in Jackass 3D but let’s be honest. What you really want to know is who got hurt the worst. And who got hurt the worst doing the stupidest thing. It’s a toss-up, but seeing Bam Margera take a taser on the head seemed the most life threatening. It’s one thing on your stomach or side, but is your skull designed to withstand electro-shock?

“I got tasered everywhere and it hurts so bad that I was still angry for the rest of the day about it,” Margera said. “It’s just one of those annoying kind of pains, like a stun gun 40 times, it makes you mad and I was just f*cking mad all day about it. I also broke my clavicle that day falling. I’m telling you that that probably sucked the worst out of this movie for me, except for the snakes.”

Interview: ‘Red’ Actor John Malkovich

Somehow in 10 years of journalism, I’d always just missed John Malkovich until now. I’d grown up watching In the Line of Fire and Con Air, but since going pro,…

Zack Snyder Dismisses General Zod As Rumor

Wednesday, October 13 by

Ladies and gentlemen, The Cranberries!!
Liam Neeson should hold off on practice-wearing plunging V-neck shirts. I took the liberty of throwing his name into the General Zod casting ring due to his resemblance to the character, and the fact that he'll willingly appear in any movie. But now it seems that we all, as an Internet, may have been impulsive.
Bad Taste recently had to sit through the The Legend Of The Guardians in order to get an interview with Zack Snyder. They asked if General Zod would appear in his upcoming Superman to which Snyder replied, "For now it's just a rumor."
So there you have it. Today it's a rumor, and tomorrow it will be announced as fact. And I'll be given the chance again to fulfill my 129-word quota. Stay tuned.

Tom Hardy Will Be Someone in Chris Nolan’s Third ‘Batman’

Wednesday, October 13 by

Christopher Nolan enjoyed working with Tom Hardy on Inception so much that he's brought him on to star in his third Batman movie. Warner Bros. won't divulge any details, but everyone's assuming Hardy will play a villain. One thing is for certain: he won't play Batman. That's Christian Bale's role, silly.
If you're upset that Hardy's dropping Mad Max for Batman, don't fret. He'll be back on that project when (if?) it ever gets going again. God hates the production of Mad Max almost as much as he hates Transformers 3. So Hardy as a Batman villain? What say you, commenters? (Deadline)

‘House’ Actress Vinessa Shaw

Wednesday, October 13 by

You probably had a childhood crush on Vinessa Shaw when you saw her opposite Rodney Dangerfield and Jonathan Brandis in Ladybugs. Then you probably lost that crush when you saw her get sexually abused by a mutant in The Hills Have Eyes. I gained that crush back seeing her guest star on "House" the other night.
A word from Vinessa:  "There was so much blood on the floor I was sticking to the floor. My hair was matted to the ground…"
Check out more pics of Vinessa after the jump…

Pic of Adam Sandler as Ugly Woman in ‘Jack and Jill’

Wednesday, October 13 by

If you've ever wanted to see Adam Sandler in drag, his next film Jack and Jill will give you plenty. Sandler plays a man and his twin sister. Yep, it's come to that, and even Al Pacino and Katie Holmes are joining in on the "fun."
This inevitable failure with the critics but success at the box office is being directed by long time Sandler collaborator Dennis Dugan. He directed Sandler in his last P.O.S. Grown Ups that went on to make 264 million at the worldwide box office. So up my nose with a rubber hose for bagging on their team. They make money hand over fist. You can check out the film in 2011 if you Sandler in a wig makes you smile. (Collider)

Fox Freaks The Eff Out Over Lindelof’s ‘Alien’ Script

Wednesday, October 13 by

Damon Lindelof has handed in his new draft of the screenplay for Ridley Scott's Alien prequel and the execs at 20th Century Fox have responded: "A+++ will do business with again." It's said that the script is successful on both a creative and budgetary level, and we don't know much more beyond that.
What we do know is that the action takes place 35 years before Ridley Scott's original and follows a female Space Marine General. The studio and director have named Natalie Portman as their top-pick for the role, with Noomi Rapace selected as an alternate. Other names that have been mentioned are Gemma Arterton and Carey Mulligan (who just screams Marine general). And beyond that, nobody knows nothing. People run around and get eaten, I guess.
