Nerd pants everywhere have tightened past the point of no return as James Cameron has unleashed a teaser trailer for his fantasy / sci-fi opus AVATAR upon the population.

THE AVATAR DAY™ SAFETY MANUAL

Wednesday, August 19 by

Nearly a month ago on a balmy July day at San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that August 21st, 2009 would forever be known as AVATAR Day™. What exactly is AVATAR Day™? Much like Haley's Comet, AVATAR Day™ only comes around once in a lifetime and is the day that the proud filmmaker will hold an advance-screening of 16 minutes from his epic in more than 100 IMAX 3-D theaters around the world. Fans got so excited that they crashed the film's official website in an effort to reserve tickets. With expectations so high and so many movie-goers eager to catch a glimpse of the alien world Pandora, 20th Century Fox would be wise to take safety precautions.Here's what we think a safety manual for surviving AVATAR should look like:

‘Top Chef: Los Vegas’ Host Padma Lakshmi

Wednesday, August 19 by

The spiciest season yet of Top Chef premieres tonight on Bravo, and we can't wait to see what kind of foodie antics host Padma Lakshmi doles out in Sin City.  This could quite possibly be the season where a naked Quick Fire Challenge gets things all hot and sweaty in the kitchen.  Sure, it's unsanitary, but a nude Padma bossing those eager chefs around is too appealing of an idea to worry about E. coli. A word from Padma: "In India, we like healthier, more voluptuous types."Amen, sister.  You gotta have something to grab on to.  Check out a few more pics of Padma and all of her voluptuousness after the jump!

Why, it's something that the entertainment industry will invent years from your time to dump off all the hooey, the likes with which respectable sponsors like Mutual of Omaha would never dare associate!   

DIORA BAIRD AUDITIONED FOR ‘THOR’

Wednesday, August 19 by

CHUD was the first to point out that sexy model-actress Diora Baird has announced via Twitter that she has auditioned for a role in the upcoming Thor film. No one is certain which role she read for or if she'll even get the part but it's a slow news morning so conjecture like this makes headlines. Honestly. It was between this or pictures of dogs sniffing celebrities.Tee-hee! Look at 'im sniff her!!Get a whiff of these fresh-scented morning links… A Gallery of Dogs Sniffing Celebrities.

McLOVIN’ & COMMON IN ‘TRAINING DAY’ CINEMASH

Tuesday, August 18 by

I don't know what's funnier: Common's awkward foray into postmodern comedy or Christopher Mintz-Plasse looking like he's about to squirt poop his tighty whities while delivering Denzel Washington's Oscar-winning "King Kong aint' got sh*t on me" speech to a bunch of legitimately street looking black dudes.  Either way, this video was worth five minutes of my time.  Then again, I run a movie and TV website. Pretty much anything is worth my time. [via CineMash]King Kong Ain't Got Sh*t on 'Deez Links!

IF FANS PICKED THE CRITERION COLLECTION

Tuesday, August 18 by

Since 1984, the fine people at the Criterion Collection have been dedicated to gathering the greatest films from around the world and publishing them in highest possible quality. But despite their valiant efforts, some important films are still missing from the collection. Luckily, some ingenious folks over at the Jinx World Forums have taken it upon themselves to create distinctive, Criterion-style box covers for those films that have been overlooked. Here are 12 of our favorites in no particular order. Our list is by no means definitive or comprehensive, so head over to Jinx World and take a look for yourselves.   Transformers Posted by Cth
