CINEMA’S CUDDLIEST & CREEPIEST ZOMBIES

Monday, June 15 by

With Dead Snow opening this weekend, we realized that there is nothing more terrifying than a Nazi Zombie. It would take the combined efforts of Indiana Jones and David Hasselhoff to strike down such a foe. And there’s no way those guys are willing to stand together. It also made us think of the variety of zombies we’ve seen throughout film and television history. Here are a select few ranked from loveable to sinister.CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE– MATT SEARS Other Junk You Might Like:Six Degrees of Ramis & Apatow

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Spinoff Movie: ‘The Plan’ to be Told From Cylons’ Perspective

Monday, June 15 by

Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins once sang, "Though we might hate to admit it/There are always two sides to every story."  I bet the two ex-Genesis frontmen had no idea they'd be singing about "Battlestar Galactica."SCI FI Wire posted an exclusive trailer for the BSG spinoff movie called The Plan, which they claim "will likely come out on DVD and will also air this fall—recaps the story of the destruction of the human Colonies from the point of view of the Cylons."Screen Junkies' resident BSG expert, Jim "Bad Mother Frakker" Connelly expressed his concern over what the toll this film will take on the lives of all Battlestar fans.  Said Connelly, "[I'm] worried EJO is right, and that it'll spur rewatching the whole series again!"  I'm guessing Connelly's EJO is Edward James Olmos and not the Electronic Journal of Oncology.  The latter did have a great article on smoking and polymorphism in xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes, though. What say you, fans?  Would rewatching the entire series be that bad?

ANDREW WK HOSTS “DESTROY BUILD DESTROY”

Monday, June 15 by

Noted hard-partier Andrew WK is hosting the new, explosion-filled Destroy Build Destroy on Cartoon Network. On the show, WK gives kids bazookas and encourages them to blow up large vehicles in order to build new, kick-ass machines out of the wreckage. It looks like a great update on Mr. Wizard. Without the bad touch. Here are some more explosive morning headlines…   Megan Fox looks forward to acting someday. (The Playlist) Lindsay Lohan is pregnant.

‘HANGOVER’ #1 AT THE BOX OFFICE FOR THE SECOND WEEKEND

Sunday, June 14 by

Zach Galifianakis is sittin' pretty once more after this weekend.As Jeffrey Tambor said to him and Justin Bartha in The Hangover, "Never leave when you're on a heater."  Well, The Hangover's heater continues, as it took top spot once more with an estimated $33.4 million.  The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 opened up at #3, disappointing for the studio, but in line with Screen Junkies readers' predictions.  Eddie Murphy's Imagine That opened with a paltry $5.7 million and the #6 spot.  Sadly, this probably means Norbit 2 has been fast tracked.  This Weekend's Top Five:1. The Hangover ($33.4 million)2. Up ($30.5 million)3. The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 ($25 million)4. Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian ($9.6 million)5. Land of the Lost ($9.2 million)[Box Office Figures: Lee's Movie Info][Image: Flickr]

TEASER FOR MICHAEL MOORE’S AS-YET-UNTITLED ‘BAILOUT’ DOCUMENTARY

Saturday, June 13 by

Teaser for Michael Moores UNTITLED BAIL OUT DOCUMENTARY – Watch more Funny VideosThe new teaser for Michael Moore's Untitled Bailout Documentary has arrived, and it doesn't give too much away, other than Michael Moore's angry again.  "Angry Moore" is really evident here.  He breaks out his classic sarcastic Moore voice, bringing his pitch up an octave while gently coaxing the audience to bend over for the banks.  "This time it's personal" reads the text at the end of the trailer.  This time, I believe it.  Kudos to Moore's marketing team for borrowing the tagline from Jaws 4: The Revenge.

LINKIN PARK’S ‘NEW DIVIDE’ VIDEO FROM ‘TRANSFORMERS REVENGE OF THE FALLEN’

Friday, June 12 by

The new music video – or "clip" – for Linkin Park's "New Divide" from the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen soundtrack was released – or "dropped" – on myspace today.  You can check it out after the jump.  It has a few shots from the film that many of us haven't seen – or "peeped" – yet, including some shots of what looks like Bumblebee fighting Ravage. In traditional soundtrack music video fashion, the film moments are intercut with shots of the band performing.  And it's Linkin Park, so the whole thing's like a giant battle to see who can out-melodramatize the other.  Lyrics are also posted after the jump.  What they have to do with GIANT F**KING ROBOTS is anyone's guess.
