Review: ‘Jackass 3D’

Friday, October 15 by

There seem to be two schools of thought on Jackass. Of course there’s the one that deplores it and condemns it. Then there’s the one that exaggerates how much they…

‘The Incredible Hulk’ Hitchhikes His Way Back Onto Television

Friday, October 15 by

With a glut of raging meatheads populating reality television, it was only a matter of time before that boiled over into scripted shows. Now, taking his rightful place beside his infuriated brothers and sisters from "Jersey Shore," "Amazing Race," and "Real World/Road Rules Challenge" (aka "The Douchebag Olympics"), "The Incredible Hulk" will return to television.
Still in the early phases, we only know that the show will air on ABC. No word yet on who will star. Given that Eric Bana, Edward Norton, Mark Ruffalo, and this Indian dude have all taken the character on for the screen, it's safe to say that someday every actor will have played the Hulk at some point in their career. My recommendation is that they pick an actor and stick with him. We need Hulk consistency. All these new faces are beginning to confuse the baby. (Deadline)

The New ‘Muppet Movie’ Gets Some Humans (Almost)

Friday, October 15 by

The Muppets are pretty damn awesome all by themselves. Why someone would take a perfectly good Muppet movie and add humans to it is something I'll never know, but it seems the film's screenwriter, Jason Segal, is doing just that. Aside from casting himself in the film, Segal is bringing a whole host of skinjobs with him.

Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, and Rashida Jones are reported very close to signing on to the project. "Adams would play Segal's girlfriend, Cooper would play the greedy villain, and Jones would play an ABC executive." The plot involves the Muppets getting their show back together in order to save a movie studio. Cooper wants to buy the studio so he can drill for oil underneath its property, but Kermit the Frog is all like, "F**k that noise, son!"

Unfortunately, they'll probably cut that last line out. Ya know, for the kids. (THR via Vulture)

‘Drive Angry 3D’ Trailer Makes Good On Its Title

Thursday, October 14 by

How you gonna mess with Nic Cage‘s hair like that?! Summit has dropped the trailer for Drive Angry 3D. Patrick Lussier directs Nicolas Cage, Amber Heard, William Fichtner, and David…

Say Whaaaaaat? James Cameron Eyeing 3D ‘Cleopatra’

Thursday, October 14 by

Deadline, you so crazy. You's gettin' everyone's nipples hard. The outlet is reporting that James Cameron is flirting with the possibility of directing a 3D Cleopatra epic for Sony starring Angelina Jolie:
"The talks are serious but by no means conclusive yet. Amy Pascal decided to fast-track its PG-13 and 3D Cleopatra project after screenwriter Bran Helgeland wrote what was is being described as a 'brilliant script deserving of epic treatment' all about 'what the Romans took from Egypt'. Pascal is hoping for a start date in 2011 but has acknowledged that "it won't be cheap" and is calling this her Gone With The Wind epic."
That all sounds well and good, but how feasible is it? Cameron needs a minimum of a decade to prep even the making of a sandwich, and Sony wants to get this thing going in a matter of months. Also, where does that leave the state of Avatar 2 and all of the Avatards already pining for its release? I'm putting this one in the "Gee We'd Sure Like This To Happen" bin.

Nicolas Cage and Amber Heard Need A New Radiator In ‘Drive Angry 3D’ Poster

Thursday, October 14 by

Bad news about Hell, you guys. It's going to break loose. All of it. I know we've all been working hard to keep it intact, but unfortunately Nicolas Cage and his leadfoot have just angrily driven through all our well-laid plans. Very sorry.
Why they chose this awkward interaction between Cage and Amber Heard for this Drive Angry poster is beyond me. She looks uncomfortable and he looks pissed. He must have tried to kiss her and she pulled away. Now he's driving her back to her parent's house. Also, what's with the flames? You'd better replace your radiator, bro. (ShockTilYouDrop)

Watch These First Five Minutes of ‘Megamind’ With Your Binkie

Thursday, October 14 by

Dreamworks Animation has released the first five minutes of their upcoming film Megamind starring Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey, and Jonah Hill. The trailers seemed a little too The Incredibles-y to me, but this new footage has peaked my interest. Just the fact that Brad Pitt and not Steve Carell is voicing the film's hero, Metro Man, is intriguing. Carell must have been busy on one of his fifty-thousand other projects.

New ‘Conan’ Promo Explodes In Your Face

Thursday, October 14 by

"Don't call me Coco!!!"
This new promo for Conan O'Brien's TBS show shows a new side of Conan. A side that doesn't take any crap. Here we see him pack a vintage car with plastique, illegal fireworks, and popcorn kernals before personally driving it off a cliff. Only way this could be sweeter is if the car was borrowed from the Leno Collection.
Check it out after the jump…

Alice Eve and Luke Evans Join ‘The Raven’

Thursday, October 14 by

Alice Eve and Luke Evans, but mainly Alice Eve, have joined the cast of The Raven. John Cusack is already on board to don the ascot of that waaaaaaaacky author Edgar Allan Poe. Evans will play a "detective who partners with Poe to search for a serial killer who has kidnapped the author’s fiance (Eve) and has gone on a murders spree that mimics the author’s work." Just like it happens in the classic novel!
James McTeigue (V for Vendetta) will begin shooting the film November 9, with Budapest and Serbia standing in for 1849 Baltimore. Things haven't changed much there in the past 160 years. (THR)

‘Mad Men’ Actress Jessica Pare

Thursday, October 14 by

With the kind of face that makes you stop, stare, and wonder where the hell you've seen her before, Jessica Pare is slowly making waves in the glitz-adorned lap pool that is Hollywoodland. From bit roles in low-budget theatre productions to Candadian film stardom and most recently to Don Draper's couch in "Mad Men," the Montreal native has run the gamut of the acting world — and she doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon.
A word from Jessica: "When the time comes when nobody cares about me anymore and nobody wants to see my face anymore, then that`s fine, too. It's totally normal.”
Check out more pics of Jessica after the jump.

New ‘Conan’ Set Pics Are Lookin’ Pretty, Pretty Good

Thursday, October 14 by

Some new photos from Marcus Nispel's Conan remake have been released and they look pretty good. Bleeding Cool got a look at what Nispel is cooking up and things are shaping up. The sets look pretty intricate and they really captured the sh*thole village aesthetic.
This really is a testament to wizardry of color-correction and special effects. For instance, check out this before and after pic from the set.

Simply amazing.

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)
