‘IN THE LOOP’ ACTRESS ANNA CHLUMSKY

Friday, July 24 by

The political comedy In The Loop brings back a familiar face that has been gone for far too long.  There's a high probability that you'll remember Anna from her breakout role as Vada Sultenfuss in the classic My Girl, but after that there's nothing that really stands out.  As it turns out, this is because she took a lengthy hiatus from acting to get educated by the University of Chicago.  Now she's working her way back into the acting world, and we couldn't be happier.  She certainly makes watching a political comedy sound endurable.A word from Anna: "They spoil you rotten. If you want a glass of milk, they run off to get you one."While that quote was in reference to her working as a child actress, I'm pretty sure that kind of stuff would have happened even if she wasn't a star, she's just that good looking.  Check out more hot photos of Anna after the jump!

Director: Albert and Allen HughesCast: Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Mila KunisSynopsis: A post-apocalyptic tale, in which a lone man fights his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind.

‘Dexter’ Season 4 Trailer

Friday, July 24 by

This trailer courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter makes the new season of DEXTER look simply amazing. The show picks up after Rita has given birth to Dexter's baby, so it spares us from the whole gross/miraculous labor thing that happens to women. Keith Carradine is back as Agent Lundy, and John Lithgow joins the cast as the "Trinity Killer," an infamous serial killer who's been killing in threes for decades. If Lithgow's half as good at being bad as he was in CLIFFHANGER than we're in for one heck of a season.  Check out these killer morning links… Wanted 2 Is In The Works (JoBlo) New Moon Breakdown Offers Hope (Cinematical) Kick Ass Footage Of Kick Ass Explained (/Film) Town Manager's Porn Star Wife Gets Him Booted (FilmDrunk) Highlights From The Burn Notice Press Room (FutonCritic)

15 MINUTES OF CAMERON’S AVATAR TALK

Thursday, July 23 by

Alls I gots ta say is… let's get Avatarded in here!  We just got out of the AVATAR press conference with none other than James Cameron, and raced back to a quiet place so we could squeal like schoolgirls… and upload these videos of the visionary director talking earnestly about his project.   The huge news revealed today is that on August 21st – "Avatar Day" – select movie theaters and online outlets will be screening 15 minutes of the film for FREE.  That's how confident Twentieth Century Fox and Cameron must be about their product.  In fact, rumor has it that Fox head Tom Rothman cried like a baby during the screening in the San Diego Convention Center's Hall H*. * Not true. So settle in and enjoy Mr. Cameron wax on about his little movie.  PART 1:  Cameron on the film's character design.

‘ORPHAN’ ACTRESS VERA FARMIGA

Thursday, July 23 by

There might be something wrong with Esther in the new movie Orphan, opening this week, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with actress Vera Farmiga.  She plays the adopted mother of the titular orphan in the movie, even though she looks way too hot to be a mom.  As it turns out, she is almost about to have a baby in real life, completely shattering my concept of what a "mom" is supposed to look like.  Basically, what I'm trying to get at, is that she's really ridiculously good-looking.  Almost good looking enough to make Orphan look like it's worth watching.  However, after the Ring debacle of 2003 where I developed a massive fear of small creepy kids, I've learned to stay away from these types of movies.A word from Vera: "There are some times when I think acting can be a noble profession."Not sure if those "noble" times include doing intense sex scenes in The Departed and Running Scared, but I'm sure viewers appreciated them none the less.  Check out more hot photos of Vera after the jump!

KEVIN SMITH VS. COMIC-CON HECKLER

Thursday, July 23 by

It's finally here: Comic-Con 2009!  Whether you're reading this from the comfort of your living room in the Midwest, or the comfort of a hard sidewalk as you wait in line for the NEW MOON panel, your heart has to be racing for all the fun in store these next few days.  Screen Junkies will be there the entire time, quick on the draw with our Twitter, and posting updates right here on the site. To kick off the convention, we thought we'd offer a word to the wise attendee.  In the below video clip, Kevin Smith shows us why you never heckle a man with a microphone.  His voice projects a lot louder than yours, and that includes when he makes fun of your mother.  So remember fans, well thought out inquires only.      Note: If you have trouble viewing the video click here.

SHUTTER ISLAND POSTER

Thursday, July 23 by

The poster for Shutter Island was just released and boy is it creeeeepy. If matches are Leo DiCaprio's only source of light on that island it's going to be a very dimly lit film. He's going to spend half the movie striking match heads on the back of matchbooks. And you know they don't always light the first time, so he'll probably get frustrated and throw the matchbook in a puddle, and then where will he be. "Screw this missing girl, I need a f*cking flashlight!"  Don't miss out on these morning links…The 300 Spartans go at it again (Hollywood Reporter)Anakin Skywalker is all messed up (FilmDrunk)There's no stopping Denzel (Variety)Iron Man 2 video game a work in progress (Cinema Blend)It's tough to get a job working for Wanda Sykes (Deadline Hollywood)
