BRYAN SINGER REBOOTING ‘BATTLESTAR’

Thursday, August 13 by

Bryan Singer is in talks to bring a big screen version of Battlestar Galactica to theaters. Originally he was set to develop the television series reboot in 2001 but was c-blocked by the Taliban. The gig later went to Ron Moore and the rest is history. No word yet on the creative direction of the feature but let's hope it wraps up a little tighter than the new series did. I find it kind of odd that Universal is already rebooting a franchise that practically just completed its successful run. If this is the new norm, can we get a do-over on Transformers 2?

RED-BAND TRAILER FOR ‘LEGION’

Wednesday, August 12 by

LEGION Red-Band Trailer – Watch more MOVIE TRAILERSThe new red-band trailer for LEGION hit the nets today and it looks like a winner so far.  Paul Bettany stars as a loose-cannon version of Michael the Archangel, who comes down to Earth against God's wishes in order to ensure the savior of humanity currently incubating in his mother's womb survives an onslaught of evil demons.  Phew. It's like the Catholic church rewrote the script for TERMINATOR 2 and managed to keep the badassitude.  If only the Bible had calculating-ass, glock-wielding angels and demon grandmas dropping F-bombs before tearing off people's faces, maybe I would have stayed Catholic. Maybe after Monopoly, Candyland and Battleship, a studio can give the Bible a much needed cinematic update (with a cameo from Brendan Fraser and music by Kid Rock, of course.)Here are your decidedly most unholy links of the day: Ashley Smith Appears To Not Own A Bathing Suit (Gorillamask)How To Get A Bartender's Attention (Holytaco)Neverending Story Van Lady Vs.

MEGAN FOX IN ‘PEER PRESSURE’ PSA

Wednesday, August 12 by

Peer pressure in high school can be a real bitch, so kudos to Megan Fox for devoting a few minutes of her time to talk about what can be done to combat it.  Granted, the only peer pressure she probably ever had to endure in high school was Michael Bay's casting car wash, but Fox gives a no-holds-barred, uncensored and sure-fire approach for all the ladies out there who have to cope with the lascivious behavior of teenage boys… and if there's one thing we learned about Fox during our coverage of JENNIFER'S BODY at Comic-Con, it's that she's best when uncensored.  Enjoy.  And try not to get killed and eaten when school starts back up, guys.

‘BANDSLAM’ ACTRESS ALYSON MICHALKA

Wednesday, August 12 by

Not since the release of the latest Harry Potter movie have we really had to worry about oogling girls that may in fact be underage.  Then Bandslam came into our sphere of thought.  This features more "wait a second, are they 18?" babes than you can shake a stick at.  Since Vanessa Hudgens is proving to be a shameless photo hooker without our help, we felt it would be best to point you towards Alyson Michalka, the legal babe that somehow manages to not have nude pics of her turn up on the internet every six months.  Prior to Bandslam, Alyson's big acting job was on the Disney Channel series "Phil of the Future," but she also happens to be a platinum-selling recording artist with Aly & AJ, a band she started with her younger sister.  Plus, when she was 10, she won a Christmas card competition with Hallmark.  So, before she was legal, she accomplished more than 80% of the people reading this have as adults.A word from Alyson: "I'm always the crazy one at parties who will do silly stuff! I've eaten like five lemon wedges and then I had to drink a cup of sugar!"See, Vanessa Hudgens?  That should be the crazy stuff you do, not drink five lemon-lime Smirnoff Ices and decide to take photos of yourself in your birthday suit!  You work for Disney, for goodness sake!  Check out wholesomely hot photos of Alyson after the jump.

Genre: Alyson Michalka Release Date: August 14, 2009

5 PBS HOSTS WHO NEED THEIR OWN MOVIE

Wednesday, August 12 by

Julia Child has been dead for five years, but this past weekend the PBS star was resurrected. Her biopic, JULIE & JULIA, took second place at the box office, a feat that is even more impressive when you consider the filmmakers watered down the interesting tale of Child’s life with the inane exploits of some shitty blogger (pot, kettle, black). The fact that Hollywood was able to turn a PBS star who looks like a tranny version of Herman Munster into box office gold is sure to get noticed, and if there’s one thing Hollywood likes to do, it’s run an idea into the ground. Since it’s only a matter of time before some desperate studio green lights a similar film, we here at Screen Junkies have compiled a list of the top five PBS personalities who deserve a movie. All we’re asking for in return is a producer credit and 10% of the domestic gross (and 20% of the international).  

FRANK DARABONT ADAPTS ‘THE WALKING DEAD’ FOR TV

Wednesday, August 12 by

The world's greatest zombie comic book is shuffling its way toward a small screen adaptation. The ridiculously rad Frank Darabont is in final talks to write and direct The Walking Dead for AMC. If you're unfamiliar with the books, the story centers on a group of strangers who must fight for survival in a zombie-infested world. Though the focus is on how we deal with one another once society and the creature comforts crumble, there is quite a bit of disturbing gore throughout. This is super exciting and Darabont is the perfect choice to helm. I'm also very excited that zombies will finally be brought to the small screen. The zombies on The Hills don't count because those are fast zombies. (/Film)Sink your teeth into these fleshy morning links…Studios line up for Kick-Ass.

REVIEW: ‘INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS’

Tuesday, August 11 by

Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds.  You have to think the movie would make Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen-amounts of money if every moviegoer were Jewish and an action movie aficionado.  While we at Screen Junkies are decidedly action movie lovers, we are also mostly of the gentile persuasion.  So, while we already have our Basterds tickets for opening weekend, we fully appreciate how gratifying the film might be all the more gratifying for someone whose family had to actually endure the atrocities of the Nazis. The idea of hearing a Jewish perspective on a movie that centers on Jews brutally killing a bunch of people who brutally killed Jews always had an interesting ring to it.  Luckily for us, our friends at Heeb Magazine read our minds, and passed writer Oliver Noble's review of the flick on to us for a gander.  As you can see from the beginning of Noble's piece, Tarantino seems to have nailed his key demo:

‘THE GOODS’ ACTRESS NOUREEN DEWULF

Tuesday, August 11 by

Another hot actress from The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard?  Crap, I already used a "she's got 'the goods'" joke yesterday with Jordana Spiro. Gotta think of another title-pertinent description for Noureen Dewulf… Oh, I got it: Noureen Dewulf is no "hard sell."  Goodness, that's brilliant.  The young actress first started gaining attention in the Oscar-winning short film West Bank Story.  Since then, she's had a steady stream of work that includes both film and TV, including The Ghosts Of Girlfriend's Past, Oceans 13, and "Chuck."  Did I mention she's gotten all these jobs in about a two-year span?  At this rate, expect Noureen to be huge in another two.A word from Noureen: "I think the most important thing women look for in men is a level of comfort in your life, if you're nerdy, be nerdy, if you're cool and super talkative, be that. I'm attracted to people who are comfortable with themselves and are proud to be that way."Maybe I shouldn't have written out that inner monologue about me struggling for a joke; that wasn't confident at all.  I blew what little chances I had with her already.  Oh well, check out more hot photos of Noureen after the jump! 

10 HOTTEST FEMALE GRIFTERS IN MOVIES

Tuesday, August 11 by

In SPREAD, opening this Friday, Ashton Kutcher plays Nikki, a high-end lothario who has slept his way into a life of privilege.  We haven't seen the film, but we're pretty sure that we'd rather it focused on Kutcher's co-star Margarita Levieva, if only to give us more screen time with her.  In the film, Levieva plays Heather, who turns out to be a grifter just like Nikki… and the plot thickens. But it got us thinking that Heather, no matter how good she is at swindling through sex, has got some pretty stiff competition cinematically speaking.  The following ten sexpots are Screen Junkies' picks for the 10 Hottest Female Grifters in Movies.   Angelina Jolie as Julie Russell ORIGINAL SIN (2001)
