First 7 Minutes of ‘Torchwood: Children of Earth’

Tuesday, July 14 by

Not too long ago, about 20% of Screen Junkies readers likened us to the antichrist for having omitted T.A.R.D.I.S. from our list of Movie Time Machines.  For those of you not in the know, T.A.R.D.I.S. is the inter-dimensional traveling phone booth from "Dr. Who," and not an elite task force of idiots, as the acronym may seem.  An even smaller number of you may be aware that "Dr. Who" has a spinoff, called "Torchwood," airing on BBC America for the past few years.  It's actually a pretty cool show – sort of like an "X-Files" meets "Buffy" meets funny accents and bad teeth (it's primarily based in Cardiff, Wales).  And next week, Captain Jack and the covert operatives from Torchwood are getting a five part miniseries, the first seven minutes of which you can watch above.  "Torchwood: Children of Earth" premieres five nights straight starting on Monday, July 20, 9:00 – 10:15 p.m. ET/PT on BBC AMERICA.  'Ere ah today's top links, guv'nah!

MLB All Star Baseball Lover Alyssa Milano

Tuesday, July 14 by

The MLB All Star Game is on tonight, and what better way to prepare you for it (other than legitimate baseball news, which I for one know none of) than with a girl gallery of a moderately famous actress who has %$&*d dated a buncha baseball players.  That's right, it's Alyssa Milano.  She's been linked to Brad Penny, Carl Pavano, Barry Zito, and Russell Martin.  Although it seems her days of pretending she's Susan Sarandon's character in Bull Durham are over (she's engaged to a CAA agent now… he probably repped a baseball player on some movie), her love for the game still goes on.  She's recently released a book entitled Safe At Home: Confessions of a Baseball Fanatic. A word from Alyssa: "I used to sleep nude – until the earthquake."While we try to digest what that quote means, YOU should check out more hot photos of Alyssa after the jump!

Tribute to Cinema’s Best Slugging

Tuesday, July 14 by

There's nothing like a trip to the ball field in the summer. The roar of the crowd, the organist's familiar theme, and the crack of the bat — all events that invigorate our senses. In honor of tonight's 2009 MLB All-Star Game we sat down to discuss which baseball films had the greatest impact on us as people, nay Americans. It sparked heated debate and words were said that cannot be taken back (Patrick called me a f** so I had my manager sucker punch him), but despite the brouhaha we were able to pare down the list to include the true Home Run Kings. So please join us as we pay salute to our national pastime with this montage of cinema's greatest hits (and we threw one TV show in there because it's too good to pass up).

‘UHF’ POSTER IS PRETTY SWEET

Tuesday, July 14 by

/Film has been covering Gallery 1988's Crazy4Cult Art show for some time now. Now they have uncovered this completely awesome UHF poster created by artist Tom Whalen. In my mind, I've always likened maintaining a website such as this to the task laid out for Weird Al's George Newman character. Maybe someday we'll be immortalized in poster form. Perhaps one where we can has cheezburger?Turn your dial to these morning links…Natalie Portman is in Thor. (Film Drunk)Vanessa Hudgens will de-frock in Sucker Punch.

‘TREEVENGE’ IS AL GORE’S FANTASY HORROR MOVIE

Monday, July 13 by

According to Twitch, who premiered the clip above, Treevenge is follow-up short film from the creative team that produced & directed Hobo with a Shotgun.  While this sadly has no hobos or shotguns, it's nonetheless full of gore – the kind of gore that Al Gore probably had in mind every time he eked out a smile during his Inconvenient Truth presentation.  More specifically, Treevenge is about trees getting their revenge on humans for chopping them down (hence the clever portmanteau in the film's title). Next time you wipe your ass with toilet paper, take a second to think about the tree that had to die so you don't get sh*t all over your pants, you savage!  That's all they ask.Here are Today's Top Links!

Treevenge

Monday, July 13 by

Director: Jason EisenerSynopsis: Treevenge is a short film detailing the experiences and horrifying reality of the lives of Christmas trees. Clearly, for trees, Christmas isn’t the exciting “peace on earth” that is experienced by most. After being hacked down, and shipped away from their homes, they quickly become strung up, screwed into an upright position for all to see, exposed in a humiliation of garish decorations. But this Christmas will be different, this Christmas the trees have had enough, this Christmas the trees will fight back. Treevenge could be a short film about the end of days for Christmas trees, or perhaps, the end of humanity?

WHAT TO WATCH ON TV TONIGHT: MONDAY, JULY 13th, 2009

Monday, July 13 by

Okay fight fans! Tonight's recommended viewings all linger around the theme of fighting for survival in one way or another. So why not watch with a friend? And then why not punch them upside when they're not looking. I think you'll both get a pretty good laugh out of it. FIND OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP…

‘Entourage’ Actress Emmanuelle Chriqui

Monday, July 13 by

"Entourage" made its triumphant return last night, and with it came the return of the adorable Emmanuelle Chriqui.  She took a long break from playing Sloan, Eric's smoking hot girlfriend – much to the dismay of every heterosexual male who watches it in hopes of seeing attractive women (the same ones who watch to hear Ari say something cool that they can co-opt for themselves).  The producers and writers must've realized they were all morons for not featuring her on the show, and now she's back.  All is right with the world (except the economy, of course).A word from Emmanuelle: "You know, "Entourage" is the biggest surprise of my career. It's never really been my dream to be on a TV series. But every pilot season, my agent wants me to do something. So this time I said, 'Okay, look, if I do television, I want to do an HBO show.'"It's no surprise you'll find hot photos of Emmanuelle after the jump.

TOP 15 MAGIC BABES FROM MOVIES & TV

Monday, July 13 by

Throughout the ages, enchanting babes with supernatural powers have come and gone, but a few exceptional ones have stuck out in our memory.  This list is a tribute to fifteen of Screen Junkies' favorite magical, sexy ladies and the spells they put on us. 15. Cheras Alexandra Medford in The Witches of Eastwick (1987)Cher may be a hell of a singer, if not always the best actress, but in this 80’s magical movie she got to show off her hots, received a significantly larger role than she normally did in her films, and showed what a sexy magical babe she could be.  That's her on the left of the Eastwick poster if you didn't already know. 

CHECK OUT A DELETED SCENE FROM ‘WATCHMEN’ THE DIRECTOR’S CUT

Sunday, July 12 by

Like many Watchmen fans, I have mixed feelings about its big screen adaptation. I appreciate it for what it is. The attention to aesthetic detail is certainly amazing and the sheer spectacle of it all is on a larger scale than any of its comic book film predecessors. But it just seems to lack the heart and fear that were so present in the book partly because the supporting characters are essentially non-characters. I held out the hope that the Director's Cut would capture more of the magic from the illustrated page. And it looks like I was right! Here is a deleted scene where the original Nite Owl attempts to fend off paranoid attackers in his home. Things don't pan out very well for the old timer but it is a beautifully put-together scene nonetheless and one that definitely should have been included in the theatrical run. You can pick up the Director's Cut on DVD and Blu Ray on July 21st. Or you can wait a few months for the 5-disc Ultimate Edition. (via Latino Review) Please avail yourselves to our morning links… Ryan Reynolds will eventually be in every comic book movie. (The Playlist) With Moneyball out, Soderbergh wants to make The Limey Too. (Cinema Blend) Matt Damon is charitable. (TV Guide) Is Stephen Chow off Green Hornet? (/Film) Wolf Man reshoots to include a far better fight scene. (First Showing)

‘Stella’ Short: ‘Bored’ w/ Sam Rockwell

Saturday, July 11 by

Happy Saturday, junkies!  If you haven't already read our weekend preview, you might have missed that Comedy Central ran episodes of both "The State" and "Stella" in the wee hours of the morning.  They likely didn't run this: an NSFW short written and driected by, and starring David Wain, Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter – a.k.a. Stella. It's my favorite of the "Stella Shorts," which preceded the Comedy Central show (a show which had Star Wars-level production value by comparison).  Look for Moon and Iron Man 2's Sam Rockwell as a pizza delivery guy.  With music by John Cougar Mellencamp.
