Dancing With the Stars’ Julianne Hough

Thursday, May 14 by

Today's dancing girl is Julianne Hough, a Utah native who came to "Dancing with the Stars" in Season 4 and promptly won that season's competish with her partner, Olympian Apollo Anton Ono.  In Season 5, she partnered with Helio Castroneves and did the double, becoming the shows' only other back-to-back winner besides Cheryl Burke.  She's also a Country music recording artist with a Mormon background, which might explain why she's using the American flag to conceal herself from heathen eyes in the photo above.  Or she's just the sexiest patriot alive.  Move over, Tom Brady. Random Quote: "Oh I wish you could love yourself, the way that I do." – From her song, "Love Yourself" off her self-titled debut.CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS OF JULIANNE AFTER THE JUMP, or these other Dancing with the Stars Chicks: Cheryl Burke, Kym Johnson, Karina Smirnoff

FOREST WHITAKER AND 50 CENT REMAKE JEKYLL AND HYDE

Thursday, May 14 by

/Film reports that despite the upcoming Jekyll film project starring Keanu Reeves, Bad Lieutenant director Abel Ferrara is moving forward with his own retelling of the classic tale. Jekyll and Hyde is set to star Forest Whitaker and 50 Cent as the cursed doctor in a contemporary retelling. Clearly they missed the boat on casting. 50 Cent as Mr. Hyde? They should have cast Mike Tyson. Wouldn't even need no make-up.Check out some more of these morning headlines. Lost Season 5: Hurley's Greatest Hits. (io9) Hanging With Mr. Danza.

SASHA GREY EXPOSES HERSELF TO THE MEDIA

Wednesday, May 13 by

Sasha Grey is a renaissance woman.  Not only does she pay the rent doing what most people do for fun (or babies), she also happens to be an intelligent and ambitious 21 year-old creative.  And with her starring performance in Steven Soderbergh’s newest film, The Girlfriend Experience, she’s now officially under the mainstream microscope. Screen Junkies had the good fortune to be invited to the film’s press junket, where Grey discussed such subjects as juggling porn and indie film, the odds of starring alongside teenybopper celebs, and her soon-to-be produced adult script, The F&%k Junkie.  If we ever start a porn column on this site, we now have a name.

‘THE SECRET’ MOVIE ADAPTATION IN THE WORKS AT UNIVERSAL

Wednesday, May 13 by

Hopefully the cover above has dissuaded you from thinking Universal was deigning to adapt the feel-good new age philosophy of the same name*.  Nay, IESB.net reports that Universal Pictures has picked up the rights to Dark Horse Comics’ The Secret under the exclusive three-year partnership the two companies entered into in early 2008.  (They also partnered on the Hellboy franchise and Timecop.) The four-issue miniseries from 2007 was written by Dark Horse's Mike Richardson, and visualized by Jason Shawn Alexander, an award-winning artist who's worked on Abe Sapien, Queen & Country, and The Escapists.  (His official website is pretty badass, and you can check it out here.)The Secret is a coming-of-age tale that focuses on Tommy, a high schooler who attends an exclusive party with the cool kids in order to get closer to his dream girl.  But then a prank call goes sour…

Dancing With the Stars’ Kym Johnson

Wednesday, May 13 by

Today's dancing girl is Kym Johnson, who came to "Dancing with the Stars" in Season 3, and has been with the show ever since.  The Aussie has never won, but has twice come in as first runner up with partners Joey Fatone and Warren "QBK" Sapp.  She was partnered this season with comedian David Alan Grier, whose Comedy Central show "Chocolate News" unfortunately had a shorter run than one of his and Kym's Paso Dobles.  Random Quote: "I'm not the least bit high-maintenance." Check out the photos of Kym after the jump, or these other Dancing with the Stars Chicks: Cheryl Burke, Julianna Hough, Karina Smirnoff

PUNCH-OUT RAP MUSIC VIDEO

Wednesday, May 13 by

Punch-Out Rap – Watch Movie Trailers No, there's not a Punch-Out TV show or film adaptation coming out (though none of us would be surprised about the latter).  No, this is the first installment in a series of old-school Nintendo-based music videos entitled "Gamerjamz."  Turns out all of Little Mac's rivals are quite the cunning linguists.  Not just Don Flamenco.

5 MOVIE ROBOTS THAT DIDN’T WORK

Wednesday, May 13 by

The '09 summer movies have already begun to arrive, but still to come are  some of the biggest, baddest, FX-iest movies around. For robot fans, you can look no further than three of the biggest releases this summer: Terminator Salvation, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and (if it sticks to the cartoon’s use of robot drones to satisfy the ratings board) G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra. [No, colons are not movie code for “Robot Plot.”] Robots are on the A-List now, but they didn't always have it so good.  Here are five cinematic robots that just didn’t work (as they were intended):   T-800 from Terminator Program: Kill Sarah Connor, period.

Evan Daugherty Is Scripting He-Man Movie

Wednesday, May 13 by

Just in from Movie Web, newcomer Evan Daughtery has been hired to pen the new He-Man film, Grayskull. I know that many of you may be worried but don't fret. He has found a way to take the already gay story of He-Man and make it infinitely gay. In the re-imagining "Adam is a soldier who sets off to find his destiny, happening upon the magical world of Eternia. There, Skeletor has raised a technological army and is bent on eradicating magic.” So yeah. Take that magic.No star has been attached yet but I'm pulling for this guy. You can do it buddy!Here are more morning headlines. Megan Fox loves girls who love girls. (Cinema Blend)Sit Down, Shut Up gets shipped out. (Playlist) Sly Stallone almost missed his flight. (AICN) Christopher Lloyd is going to have an unfortunate Spring Break. (Bloody Disgusting) Van Damme broin' out with Vinnie Jones (The Hollywood Reporter)

JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME TEAMS WITH VINNIE JONES IN ‘WEAPON’

Tuesday, May 12 by

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Vinnie Jones will team up in a film called Weapon, to be directed by Russell Mulcahy, the man responsible for Highlander and Resident Evil: Extinction.  Weapon is the story of rival assassins, sharpshooter Jack Conway (Jones) and knife-wielding Derek Chase (Van Damme), who must blend their skills to foil the head of a drug cartel. A knife man and a gun guy can't get along?  Where's the tension?  They serve two different purposes, really.  I would have much rather heard the following synopsis:

Weapon

Tuesday, May 12 by

Director: Russell MulcahyCast: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Vinnie JonesSynopsis: Jack Conway (Jones) and Derek Chase (Van Damme) are the two best assassins in the world — but unknown to each other. While Conway is a master sharpshooter, Chase is equally skilled with a knife. These two rival assassins form an uneasy alliance to take down the head of a drug cartel, which is backed by the DEA.

Dancing With the Stars’ Cheryl Burke

Tuesday, May 12 by

Well, a ton of TV shows are about to cool it for the summer, but Screenjunkies wanted to heat things back up a little, so this week, we're honoring our favorite dancing girls from this season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." Today's girl is Cheryl Burke, came to "Dancing with the Stars" in Season 2, and has never left, becoming the show's first two-time champ with partners Drew Lachey and Emmitt Smith (in Seasons 2 and 3, respectively). Random Quote: "I want kids or women out there to realize you don't have to be anorexic to be beautiful. There's a lot of pressure living this Hollywood life."Let this be a lesson to everyone.  You don't have to have an eating disorder.  You just need to dance non-stop. Check out the photos Cheryl after the jump or these other Dancing with the Stars Chicks: Kym Johnson, Julianna Hough, Karina Smirnoff
