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.

A JACKO OF ALL TRADES

Wednesday, July 22 by

We know you're sick of hearing about Michael Jackson, but this was too bizarre to pass up. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Jackson loved the movies, so much so that he wanted to produce, direct, and star in them. The first part of the above video shows Michael interviewing the author of a book entitled They Cage the Animals at Night that he wanted to adapt, but it's the second part that caught our attention. In the movie "Miss Castaway and the Island Girls," Jackson briefly appears as Agent A.J. who comes to rescue the characters on a beam of light: Beam up the rest of this morning's links…Raimi enters into The World of Warcraft (Cinematical)A Comic-Con preview with pretty pictures (USA Today)Harry Potter directors by the numbers (First Showing)Bousman gets into real estate (Variety)Abdul might be out of Idol (Cinema Blend) 

TRAILER FOR ‘BRONSON’ IS HAPPY TO KILL YOU IN RETURN FOR JAIL TIME

Tuesday, July 21 by

BRONSON Trailer is CA-RAAAZYYYY! – Watch more Movie TrailersThe trailer for the independent flick BRONSON has hit the 'nets, and boy does it hit hard (and with a great soundtrack to accompany said pummeling, which is really the only way to pummel).  It reminds me a little bit of TRAINSPOTTING in that way, only instead of heroin, the lead character is addicted to inflicting pain and stealing loot.  The film is based on real life criminal and glutton for punishment Michael Peterson, who spent 34 years of his life behind bars, 28 of which were in solitary.  The film's title comes from the nickname he adopted: Charles Bronson.  As the real Charles Bronson said, "Audiences like to see the bad guys get their comeuppance."  If that holds true, this should be one orgasmic audience pleaser.

‘THE COLLECTOR’ ACTRESS MADELINE ZIMA

Tuesday, July 21 by

What good is a horror film without its hot young starlets?  No good, that's what it is.  Luckily, The Collector, the new horror flick from Project Greenlight winners-turned-Saw scribes Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, has its bases covered in the category of beauties.  Madeline Zima, best known as the Lolita-esque character Mia in the Showtime series Californication, stars in the film, which sounds like a mix between a heist film and the kooky violent traps found in all of  the Saw flicks (there are about 15 of those now, right?).  We're all hoping that she does not find her way into a bear trap-like device that threatens to rip her head off, as it is far too pretty for decapitation.A word from Madeline: "I'm a huge dork, trying to please all the wrong people."While we don't like to think of ourselves as "the wrong people," she's certainly pleasing to look at.  Check out more hot photos of Madeline after the jump!

REAL ‘TRANSFORMERS’ FANS DRINK GASOLINE

Tuesday, July 21 by

According to FilmDrunk, a 14-year-old boy has been drinking gasoline for five years so he can be like his hero "Optimus Prime." Back in my day if you got excited by a movie you had your mom drive you over to Toys R Us and you screamed and kicked until she bought the toy you wanted. You didn't grab a lenth of garden hose and siphon gas out of your Dad's Kawasaki. Apparently the gasoline has made the kid dumber and he can no longer do math. Sounds to me like someone's just trying to sneak in an extra year of high school…Make some wise decisions this morning with these links…Charlize Theron may make Atlas shrug (Hollywood Reporter)G.I.

‘MYSTERY TEAM’ TRAILER #2 IS HERE!

Monday, July 20 by

MYSTERY TEAM Trailer #2 – Watch more Movie Trailers The new trailer for international internet comedy sensation Derrick Comedy's Mystery Team is on the case, and color us intrigued.  What is the color of intrigue, you ask?  Good question, we answer.  Then we avoid the subject entirely by not-so-tactfully changing it back to the film, which is  "a dark comedy that follows the lives of three high school age friends who are still holding on to their Encyclopedia Brown-esque childhood detective club. Of course, their world is turned upside down when they are presented with a real, adult mystery." On the adult mystery scale, this looks funnier than "Murder She Wrote," but not quite on the level of a "Father Dowling Mysteries," which was hilarious because priests don't solve mysteries in their spare time!  They're too busy covering up mysteries for their pedophile buddies.

Now they're eighteen years old, about to graduate from high school, yet they're still storming the playground to bust little kids, and the town of Oakdale is sick to death of it.When a little girl sees their sign advertising "Mysteries Solved, Ten Cents," she asks the gang to find out who killed her parents. The Team embarks on a mystery that takes them deep into a violent conspiracy that sees their lives threatened, their friendship strained and tests their claim that they're "real detectives."
