‘ORPHAN’ ACTRESS VERA FARMIGA

Thursday, July 23 by

There might be something wrong with Esther in the new movie Orphan, opening this week, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with actress Vera Farmiga.  She plays the adopted mother of the titular orphan in the movie, even though she looks way too hot to be a mom.  As it turns out, she is almost about to have a baby in real life, completely shattering my concept of what a "mom" is supposed to look like.  Basically, what I'm trying to get at, is that she's really ridiculously good-looking.  Almost good looking enough to make Orphan look like it's worth watching.  However, after the Ring debacle of 2003 where I developed a massive fear of small creepy kids, I've learned to stay away from these types of movies.A word from Vera: "There are some times when I think acting can be a noble profession."Not sure if those "noble" times include doing intense sex scenes in The Departed and Running Scared, but I'm sure viewers appreciated them none the less.  Check out more hot photos of Vera after the jump!

KEVIN SMITH VS. COMIC-CON HECKLER

Thursday, July 23 by

It's finally here: Comic-Con 2009!  Whether you're reading this from the comfort of your living room in the Midwest, or the comfort of a hard sidewalk as you wait in line for the NEW MOON panel, your heart has to be racing for all the fun in store these next few days.  Screen Junkies will be there the entire time, quick on the draw with our Twitter, and posting updates right here on the site. To kick off the convention, we thought we'd offer a word to the wise attendee.  In the below video clip, Kevin Smith shows us why you never heckle a man with a microphone.  His voice projects a lot louder than yours, and that includes when he makes fun of your mother.  So remember fans, well thought out inquires only.      Note: If you have trouble viewing the video click here.

SHUTTER ISLAND POSTER

Thursday, July 23 by

The poster for Shutter Island was just released and boy is it creeeeepy. If matches are Leo DiCaprio's only source of light on that island it's going to be a very dimly lit film. He's going to spend half the movie striking match heads on the back of matchbooks. And you know they don't always light the first time, so he'll probably get frustrated and throw the matchbook in a puddle, and then where will he be.

‘THE ANSWER MAN’ ACTRESS LAUREN GRAHAM

Wednesday, July 22 by

The Answer Man, available on demand right now and in theaters this Friday, looks to be a romantic comedy that will play off of the strength of their ever-lovable cast.  That includes the likes of Jeff Daniels, Kat Dennings, and Olivia Thirlby, but the one we're most interested in is the romantic interest of the flick, Lauren Graham.  She won us over before The Answer Man with her heartwarming performance as Lorelai Gilmore through seven wonderful years of The Gilmore Girls… Erm, not that we watched that show or anything.  We were watching… Um, Prison Break instead… Yeah, Prison Break.  A word from Lauren: "These days I have to be extra nice in stores. It never fails that whenever I look as bad as I can possibly look or I am sort of cranky because the store is out of something, that is precisely the time when someone one will recognize me and say: 'I really like your show.'"She seems to be succeeding at looking extra nice in public, as evidenced by the photos of her that you can see after the jump!

10 CULT FILMS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Wednesday, July 22 by

  Out of the 30,000 movies produced each year only 700 see theatrical distribution. If you do the math correctly, that means that there are exactly one gazillion movies that very few people see — movies that have their own charms whether those charms be a skewed sense of humor or a dude jacking off onto a chicken. For every watered down family-friendly blowstravaganza like Wild Hogs, there's a truly brilliant gem that has only found itself a small but loyal group of fans. We've turned over a few rocks and come up with trailers for ten crazy little cult flicks.  RUBIN AND ED

EXCLUSIVE MUSIC VIDEO FOR COLDPLAY’S ‘STRAWBERRY SWING’

Wednesday, July 22 by

 We don't post a lot of music videos here on Screenjunkies.com – nor do we post anything about Coldplay after 40-Year-Old Virgin seemed to ruin them for most guys with one innocent line of bro banter.  But you can't deny that their music videos are almost always decidedly the opposite of Seth Rogen's assessment of the band.  So, enjoy this music video for the band's newest single, "Strawberry Swing."  And if you don't like Coldplay, just turn down the volume and crank up that Indigo Girls iTunes Essentials collection you use to kick start your mornings.
