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

MTV Movie Awards Promo With Anne Hathaway and Andy Samberg

Tuesday, May 12 by

Andy Samberg & Anne Hathaway MTV Promo – Watch more Movie TrailersBefore, there was "Slaughter Shack."  Now, the 2009 MTV Movie Awards proudly presents Andy Samberg and Anne Hathaway in the Hallmark Movie of the Week-like™ film "Evenings with Ms. Eloise." Anne Hathaway proves herself to be a comic equal to Samberg, but looks way hotter in drag here. Like I said before, I may hate everything about the actual awards ceremony, but damned if they don't make funny promos and intersitials to go with 'em.

CLIP FROM ‘THE BROTHERS BLOOM’ – “THE MARK”

Tuesday, May 12 by

A new clip from Rian Johnson's The Brothers Bloom was released today.  In our last installment, we got to see Rachel Weisz's card skills.  In this one, we get to see Adrien Brody's lack of bicycling skills, as he flies down a steep decline and narrowly avoids missing Rachel and her Lamborghini.  Granted, he meant to do it.  It's all part of an elaborate scheme to grift Weisz's character. Watch the clip after the jump, and don't try this at home.  Screenjunkies is seeing The Brothers Bloom tonight and will have a full report when we're allowed.  The film officially opens May 29th.

MEGA SHARK VS. GIANT OCTOPUS TRAILER EMERGES

Tuesday, May 12 by

Down below we have the trailer for Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, the movie that dares ask 'What would happen if a giant octopus fought a mega shark?' The trailer features the colossal sea creatures attacking submarines, boats, oil rigs, jets, commercial flights, and San Francisco. And Earth's only hope is Lorenzo Lamas. *Sigh* Maybe it's not too late to strike some kind of deal with Giant Octopus.   Here are your other morning headlines: Hulu too good to be true.

SPIKE JONZE SCARES SMALL CHILD WITH ‘WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE’ SUIT

Monday, May 11 by

Where The Wild Things Are Scare – Watch more Movie Trailers /Film posted this video of Spike Jonze scaring the ever loving crap out of a child while wearing a Where the Wild Things Are suit that's like the cheap department store Santa equivalent of the Wild Things from the film.  Still, I'd be scared if my Dad were running around the house wearing this.  Then again, I was scared sh*tless of Michael Jackson in "Thriller" when I was that age.  Maybe that was just good sense.

‘TERMINATOR SALVATION’ 5-MINUTE “HARVESTER” FEATURETTE

Monday, May 11 by

Not since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' "Coming Out of Their Shells" Tour has Pizza Hut delivered such a powerhouse promotional tie in.  Today, on the 'Hut's website, those bros at Warners posted a new 5-minute Terminator Salvation featurette that shows you the anatomy of a scene in which Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) and Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington) blow the ever loving crap out of a combo 7-Eleven/Gas Station (and probably all the Terminator Salvation promotional Slurpee crazy straws within it). The best part is the interview with Special Effects Supervisor Michael Meinardus, who's supporting himself on crutches.  The dude looks like he injured himself jumping off his Harley to punch a T-800 in its exo-skull.  Check out the insightful and ass-kicking sequence – brought to you by Pizza Hut – after the jump.  [via /Film]

‘FUNNY PEOPLE’ TO GO ‘TROPIC THUNDER’ WITH FAKE MOVIES INSIDE MOVIE

Monday, May 11 by

In an interview with MTV, Judd Apatow spills the beans that his upcoming film Funny People will include scenes and "marketing materials" for a bunch of fake movies in which Adam Sandler's character George Simmons stars.  It's a conceit that worked really well in Tropic Thunder, with the inspired trailers for such high concept spoofs as Scorcher, The Fatties: Fart 2 and Satan's Alley (all three of which you can see after the jump, along with a short list of faux-films within the world of Funny People.

LEONIDAS VS. DEXTER IN ‘GAMER’ TRAILER

Monday, May 11 by

The new trailer for Gamer, Neveldine & Taylor's answer to Running Man, Death Race and The Matrix is out now.  The film stars Gerard Butler as a death row inmate named Kabel, who's become an unwitting pawn in a multi-player simulation game called "Slayers," created by evil genius Michael C. Hall (TV's Dexter).  We know where this is going, but Neveldine/Taylor always seem to find a way to increase the A.D.D. appeal in ways never thought possible.  The film also stars Amber Valetta, Ludacris, John Leguizmo and Terry Crews (The Expendables & Terminator Salvation).   Check it out after the jump if you're still even reading this.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE ESTIMATES: ‘STAR TREK’ TAKES $75 MILLION

Sunday, May 10 by

According to Nikki Finke's Deadline Hollywood Daily, Paramount's Star Trek pulled in $26 million on saturday, a 9% increase from Friday's box office.  The studio is reportedly confident that the totals for the film, including the Thursday night previews, will reach $75 million.  Not quite as big as X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but one would have to think Star Trek's gonna outlast its mutant rival if the reviews mean anything.   In any case, it's another success for JJ Abrams to celebrate. In tribute to Mr. Abrams, here's a video from the Fine Brothers that posits what would happen if Trek met Lost.  See the rest of the weekend Box Office Estimates after the jump:
