Ryan Reynolds Vlogs in New ‘Buried’ Trailer

Wednesday, January 20 by

Director Rodrigo Cortés unveils Buried this week at Sundance and now we have a short trailer. Well, it's more of a Flip video really. Whereas most YouTube journals discuss cute boys or the tedium of schoolwork, this one gets a lot more bummerific by discussing being buried alive in Iraq with only 90 minutes to live. LOL, I guess. It's still funnier than Lisa Nova.No word yet on a wide release date but expect one soon. It seems like an interesting movie with a strong premise. Haven't we all wanted to see Ryan Reynolds in a coffin at some point? (MTV)Dig the trailer up after the jump…

DIRECTOR: Rodrigo CortésCAST: Ryan Reynolds; Ivana MiñoSYNOPSIS: Paul is a U.S. contractor working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it's a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.

Will Ferrell will be Conan’s Last ‘Tonight Show’ Guest

Wednesday, January 20 by

Will Ferrell helped Conan O'Brien start his run on The Tonight Show, and now he's going to help him end it. Conan will be retiring from NBC this Friday night after calling the network home for seventeen years. When Ferrell appeared on Conan's first Tonight Show episode he was carried out on stage by Egyptian slaves. This time I'm hoping he carries out a box of Molotov cocktails and him and Conan go apeshit on that shiny new studio Jeff Zucker built him. Sure, audience members might be harmed in the process, but there's nothing like a few charred tourist corpses to get your point across.Here is Conan's final guest line-up:Wednesday, Jan. 20: Adam Sandler, Joel McHale and musical guest Joss Stone Thursday, Jan. 21: Robin Williams and musical guest Barry Manilow Friday, Jan. 22: Tom Hanks, Will FerrellTom Hanks is going to be there, too?! Oh man, that place would burn to the ground. (Movieline)

‘Legion’ Actress Willa Holland

Wednesday, January 20 by

I didn't watch The O.C. and I don't watch Gossip Girl, so I had no idea who Willa Holland was until I looked up the Legion credits, but I have to say I'm awfully glad I know now. She's only 19-years-old, but in all the states that are part of the Union that's what we here at Screen Junkies like to call legal. A word from Willa: "I was at (Steven Spielberg's) house, playing with his kids."It's amazing how he'll just let anyone from off the street come in, make a sandwich, use his facilities, sleep in his bed, and play video games with his kids. He just can't be home when you do it.Check out more pics after the jump when no one else is home.

‘True Grit’ will be Released in the Heart of Awards Season

Wednesday, January 20 by

And the winner of the 2011 Oscar for Best Picture is… True Grit. Oh sorry, I was future-writing again. The Coen Brother's True Grit hasn't won any awards yet (nor has it been filmed or finished casting) but Paramount is showing a lot of faith by setting the remake up for a Christmas Day release.Jeff Bridges is set to star as Rooster Cogburn, the drunken U.S. Marshal originally played by John Wayne, as he teams up with a 14-year old girl to avenge her father's murder. Matt Damon and Josh Brolin are also on board as a Texas Ranger and the murderer respectively. There's a lot of talent involved here and it looks like a definite contender even this far out.Bridges has a good shot at finally winning his Oscar this year with Crazy Heart. So who knows? Maybe next year the role will bring him Oscar glory like it did for Wayne. Then he'll become a member of the back-to-back winner's club. A club that hosts Luise Rainer, Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn, Jason Robards, Tom Hanks, and Zac Efron. Sorry. Future-writing again. (Variety)

10 Best January Releases of All Time

Wednesday, January 20 by

We all know January movies suck. That’s why it’s so surprising and notable when a decent one gets through the first month of the year, let alone a downright good one. So maybe this is like rating the top 10 dictators less evil than Hitler, but since we’re stuck in January for another two weeks it’s at least nice to remember that there’s still hope for good movies. And I’m not talking about the Oscar movies that go wide in January or foreign movies that happen to get their U.S. release in January. I’m talking about movies intended to open in January that somehow turned out well.10. Hostel

Sony Hires New Director for ‘Spider-Man’ Reboot. Who Will Be Their Peter Parker?

Wednesday, January 20 by

After creative differences with Sam Raimi ground Spider-Man 4 to a halt, Sony decided to salt the earth and start over with a new story and a new director, one they could push around. (500) Days of Summer's Marc Webb is that guy!Webb is signed on to get bullied by the studio for one film with an option to do more if he's a good little bitch. From Webb:"I think the Spider-Man mythology transcends not only generations but directors as well. I am signing on not to 'take over' from Sam. That would be impossible. Not to mention arrogant. I'm here because there's an opportunity for ideas, stories, and histories that will add a new dimension, canvas, and creative voice to Spider-Man."After releasing this statement, Columbia chairman Amy Pascal said, "Good boy, Marc," before patting him on the head and giving him a juicebox.

Bill & Sam are Gonna Makeout and Stuff on ‘True Blood’

Tuesday, January 19 by

You don't need to read my mind to see my boner. In True Blood's idiotic second season finale, Bill needed to save Sam by squirting him full of his magic vampire blood (SPOILER ALERT). Well, who knows who will be squirting what in the new season. Show creator Alan Ball tells Michael Ausiello that the vampire and shapeshifter now share "not just any connection, an erotic connection," as a result of the transfusion. Ball wouldn't disclose how erotic the scenes will be, but let's assume the monster-mashing is nestled somewhere near Van Helsing and New Moon on the Gay Monster Scale, or GSM as it's more commonly called.

DVD Review: ‘The Bourne Series’

Tuesday, January 19 by

If you’re like me, and you’re still not convinced you should shell out the extra cash for a Blu-Ray player (case it point: my “revolutionary” mini-DV player is now worth $4 on Craig’s List), then the re-release of the Bourne Series on flipper discs is a good compromise. Like Jason Bourne himself the three discs don’t quite know what they are— DVD on one side and Blu-Ray on the other—which actually is perfectly fine with me: I won’t feel like a moron adding an obsolete DVD or un-tested Blu-Rays to my library. Read more after the jump.

‘Piranha 3D’ Trailer Looks Better Than Expected

Tuesday, January 19 by

All right Screen Junkies, time to put on your 3D glasses and get ready to witness the mayhem of Piranha 3D. In this trailer you'll see the — what's that? You don't have 3D glasses? Well, you're supposed to be ready at all times. These are the post-Avatar days we're living in afterall.For those of you who did come prepared, please enjoy this blurry look at a sh*tty movie that tries to sell you on the combined star power of Elisabeth Shue and Jerry O'Connell. Last week we heard it has had its release date pushed back maybe indefinitely. Moreover, if it does ever come out, word is it won't be in 3D anymore. But hey, BOOBIES!!!And on a sidenote, how are you going to make a movie about piranha where a guy on a jet ski rolls under the water's surface and doesn't emerge as a skeleton? That's just lazy filmmaking. (Pajiba)Check out the trailer with the little scary fishies after the jump…

‘Creation’ Actress Jennifer Connelly

Tuesday, January 19 by

Your obsession with Jennifer Connelly began back when she starred alongside a creepy (normal) David Bowie in Labyrinth. Since then it has grown with each passing film, and even though the quality of Jennifer's work has gone downhill since she won her Oscar for A Beautiful Mind, you still love her unconditionally. By the way, I project my infatuations. A word from Jennifer: "It's just funny looking back at yourself walking and talking at age 14."Someone's a late bloomer, Jennifer… I was already hearing about this thing people were doing called "sex" by 14.  Check out more pics of Jennifer's blooming after the jump.
