Katee Sackhoff returns to nerd-bonering tonight. CHECK OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP NOTE: ALL TIMES EASTERN & PACIFIC!!
Rather than reviewing Jason Statham's latest explosion fest in my own voice, I'm going to use the voice of the frat dude that was sitting behind me at the midnight showing I attended last night. Please note that caps lock is used to emphasize both the frat guy's excitement and the movie's resemblance to a fun, 89-minute Mountain Dew commercial.
AGORA Trailer with Rachel Weisz – Watch more Movie Trailers Above is the first trailer for the new Egypt-under-the-Roman-Empire period piece, which stars Rachel Weisz as the brilliant astronomer Hypatia, who along with her disciples, fights to save the wisdom of the Ancient World during a violent religious upheaval. It looks like there's action, but whether or not Weisz will kick some holy Roman ass remains to be seen. The title bugs me. "Agora." It comes from the Greek for a marketplace. That's like naming DIE HARD "NAKATOMI PLAZA." Or UNDER SIEGE 2 "MOVING TRAIN." If they're going to just name it after the location, they could at least do something dynamic like THE TOWERING INFERNO did. Maybe call it RELIGIOUS RUMBLE AT THE ALEXANDRIA MALL.

Every year, Nerdcore releases a special calendar paying tribute to pop culture with sexy pinup girls. The 2010 Calendar, currently available for pre-order, is a bloody, beautiful homage to horror flicks, and it's a perfectly timed Halloween gift for any discerning masturbator of the macabre friend you may have. According to Nerdcore, "no genre has been more synonymous with nerds and nudity than horror," and we couldn't agree more. Their 4th annual calendar features cover model Jana Jordan getting paranormal with a TV set, sultry scream queen Justine Joli in the most vintage of psychotic shower scenes, Bobbi Starr sewn together (literally) in a more naked version of Frankenstein, as well as Aria Giovanni, Kayla Jane Danger, Karlie Montana, Mosh, and Zoli Suicide getting their scream on. Check out some of the hot, nearly NSFW photos after the jump. Can you guess all the horror movies to which the photos pay tribute? Does it really even matter?
Whether you know it or not, your sexual preferences today are a byproduct of your childhood conditioning. And if its one thing that conditioned all of us, it’s the TV. The 80s brought us blue-colored drink mix, unrealistic expectations for time-travel capability, and one of the tastiest range of sexy TV starlets in history.
You may remember actor Jesse Eisenberg, he’s quite the hot-shot young actor in a circle of “I play disillusioned youngsters wanting to be Holden Caufield” roles. Go down the list….
Episode: "Head Cheese". After last week's big happenings, things slowed down for this episode, probably so they can get everyone into position for the last two episodes of the season. It looks like some shit is about to go down. Nancy:
There is one question that remained after the death of Hunter S. Thompson. Was his suicide the ultimate act to cap a life of utter defiance, the final middle finger to a rotten world that is irrecoverably lost among madmen and perverts? Or was blowing his brains out the only recourse for a burn out who partied too hard, eventually dulling his razor sharp wit on years of alcoholism and drug abuse. Alex Gibney’s Biopic asks this question.
Fall TV is an exciting time. There are lots of new shows to be watched and complain about. But, one of the best things about the fall premieres is getting to see the new crop of beautiful ladies being paraded across our TV screens. Here's a cheat sheet of girls you might not be familiar with….yet.

Maybe I'm not the sentimental type or maybe I just don't share the unending, fiery love for Superman that some people seem to have. Or maybe I just see how absolutely ridiculous it is for a legitimate charity to try and guilt people into donating money that will be put toward saving the house in which Superman was invented. Sorry Ronald McDonald, your house full of sick kids and their families doesn't have enough comic book history to get my money. [Warning: Ranting ahead]
William Shatner is a great fit for our reoccurring list of crazy star moments. The man does some truly bizarre things while seeming to take himself completely seriously. But really, it’s all just a joke. We think. And with the sad news that he will not take part in J.J.
We all have them: Our favorite worst movies. Whether due to poor acting, writing, production value or all of the above, there are some gorgeously entertaining cinematic turds that we just can’t flush out of our hearts. Here are some of the most awfulsome movies ever made. 11. Double Team
If you're having horizontal relations on a regular basis, chances are pretty good you're busy Saturday night. But fear not you coupled soldier you, there is no reason your bro-ness has to be sacrificed in the name of Saint Valentine. I know I'm planning on dinner for two and a movie in the comfort of my apartment, but if you're just starting down the road of monogamy you're going to be expected to leave the house. So when it comes to what movie you're going to see at the multiplex after your romantic dinner, keep in mind February 14th is her day. Which means unless your GF is crazy awesome, My Bloody Valentine 3D is out. So here's a run down of what you'll need to sit through if you want to see her naked later.
South Park is getting by the economic crisis just like the rest of the country, only in South Park Randy Marsh rises up as a prophet warning people that they have angered the economy. Stan has to find a way to return the frivolous Margaritaville machine his dad bought, and Kyle starts trouble by breaching the economy is not a dangerous entity to be feared. It's another great South Park this season, and it's right after the jump
Pam is driving Michael on a roadtrip around to all the Dunder-Mifflin branches so that Michael can give presentations on how to make other branches as successful as his, and they run into an old friend at Utaca. Dwight and Jim also have to deal with an emotionally distraught Kelly, who’s pissed at the entire office for having forgot her birthday. And Andy fixes his eye on a young, hot client of Stanley’s.
You know, watching today's TV sitcoms just ain't the same as twenty years ago. Don't get me wrong. The technology is miles apart. We have single-camera shows that out-slick their studio-based counterparts, and modernized three- or four-camera studio-based shows that outwit their predecessors. But there's something sorely missing in our current crop of "laffers." And that's a great theme song. Back in the 80s, the theme song meant something. It was survival of the catchiest. It had to have a hummable hook. And more importantly, it had to have lyrics that not only got you singing along, but that taught you a valuable life lesson. Theme songs were our education away from school, and more than likely, we learn a lot more from some power chords and a so-white-he's-pale singer waxing lyrical than we ever did from our teachers. And so, it is with great pleasure, that Sceen Junkies presents the Top 12 80s Theme Songs to Live By. #12 FULL HOUSE
Middle Men, hitting theaters Friday, is the tale of Jack Harris (played by Luke Wilson) who has a successful career fixing problem companies. He meets Wayne Beering (Giovanni Ribisi) and Buck Dolby (Gabriel Macht), who've invented a way for adult entertainment to be sold over the internet. Based on a true story, I'm sure they won't go as far as to mention the actual name of the website. It will probably be something close to the actual website URL but funnier for movie fans.
The internet has a played a part in the plot of countless movies. In some cases it's a brief mention that just moves the story along but in others it's a main focus that actually drives the storyline. Here are ten movies that use fake websites. Some of the website names might be even more popular than the actual movie.
Back to the Future is one of those movies I’ve wondered about my whole life. I love it, even the theories I don’t think make sense, I love thinking about them. The upcoming Blu-Ray release answered my number one question: What would Eric Stoltz have been like as Marty McFly?
For the rest, I got to talk to screenwriter Bob Gale. He’s in the bonus features, with Robert Zemeckis, Stephen Spielberg, Michael J. Fox and Lea Thompson talking about all three films, with still new stories to tell since the last DVD extras. Sorry, I neglected all the burning 1941 questions.

James Gunn is going to break the Internet if he keeps casting so many geek-friendly actors in his upcoming Super. The superhero dark comedy stars Rainn Wilson as a man who up and decides to be a superhero after his wife leaves him despite his lack of powers. LOTR's Liv Tyler is the wife who leaves his ass for Kevin Bacon's charming drug dealer. Now, Nathan Fillion (Dr. Horrible), Ellen Page (Inception), Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks), Michael Rooker (Mallrats), Andre Royo (The Wire), Sean Gunn (Gilmore Girls), and Steve Agee (The Sarah Silverman Program) are all aboard the project. The nerdgasmic film is currently filming in Louisiana with no confirmed release date. Rest assured, whatever opening day is decided upon will be the day that me and the other cool kids go rob the nerd houses. Those Star Wars figures will be mine! (GeekWeek)
If only real life offered 1-Ups… The Scott Pilgrim vs. The World Facebook page hit 100,000 fans at 1:30am this morning, and that means the full length trailer has been unleashed. A big thank you goes out to all the drunks who stumbled back to their homes last night and stamped barbeque sauce on their keyboards as they eagerly "Liked" the fan page. Scott Pilgrim, based off the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O'Malley, follows a guy (Michael Cera) as he tries to defeat a girl's (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) seven evil ex-boyfriends in order to make shiz official with her. His world becomes a big video game full of 1-Ups, vibrant color trails, and onamonapias. According to the film's tag, the studio wants you to believe that it's on like Donkey Kong, but unless one of the ex-boyfriends is a giant ape in a dress tie, I'm going to have to insist that it's on like something else. Check out the trailer after the jump. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World BAMS! into theaters August 13, 2010.
Screen Junkies and Break is hosting a screening of the new film Middle Men Tuesday at 4:30PM in Los Angeles, and we're inviting you! That's right. YOU! 25 people plus a guest can be the first to see the movie, which chronicles Jack Harris, one of the pioneers of internet commerce, as he wrestles with his morals and struggles not to drown in a sea of conmen, mobsters, drug addicts, and pornstars. Don't pretend like you aren't intrigued by all of those subjects.
After the screening, I will moderate a Q&A with producer Chris Mallick, whose story inspired the film.
To attend, all you have to do is be one of the first 25 people to follow Screen Junkies on Twitter and tweet your enthusiastic response. Check out the red-band trailer to whet your appetite.
I'll save you all a seat in the best section of the theater.
Splash News posted this new photo of Tracy Morgan in Kevin Smith's buddy cop comedy A Couple of Dicks. No reports as to the full context of the scene, but it does appear that Mr. Morgan is dressed as a cell phone, and taking flight atop a bicycle. As this is a cop film, my guess is that he's disguised himself as the phone – a disguise that was compromised – and then he commandeered the bicycle as the foam phone suit proved too cumbersome for fleeing on foot. Then again, this could just be a Kevin Smith's metaphorical homage to our exponentially shifting communications technologies. I mean, the guy did direct Mallrats, after all. See the photo in its entirety – including just what Tracy is riding his bike away from – after the jump. [via ComingSoon]

Comic-Con descends upon San Diego in two weeks, and Screen Junkies will be there every step of the way getting stepped on by costumed freaks in pursuit of footage. Luckily, Summit isn't showcasing a Twilight panel this year, so we won't have to worry about Twihards ripping off our genitals in an effort to bum rush Hall H. Make sure you continually reload SJ's homepage July 21-25 for the latest Comic-Con updates. My fingers are crossed I can pick up a wireless signal in the Convention Center, or else I'll have to start eliminating bloggers, thus boosting bandwith.Check out some of the Thursday highlights after the jump.
