Being hailed as this year's breakout Sundance hit, 500 Days of Summer opens in limited release this weekend.  While I cannot attest to whether or not it's a breakout Sundance hit, I can confirm that it is a breakout reason to see Zooey Deschanel act adorable on a giant movie screen.  Although, to be fair, every movie she is in counts as one of those.  From small parts in films like Almost Famous to a romantic lead in the holiday classic Elf, she's been every indie nerd's dream for quite a while (she even has a respectable indie band, for goodness sakes!).  She even made The Happening bearable!… well, ok, she actually didn't, but it's not like she hurt the already awful movie or anything.A word from Zooey: "I don't really like to go out very much. I'm not scandalous. I'm not, like, in this to be famous. I also find it so embarrassing when you read about people and it's like they were so trashed at Skybar and stumbling around. I don't want to be that person. That's just so embarrassing to have that written about you."…And that's exactly why you're awesome, Zooey.  Check out more non-scandalous, albeit very pretty, photos of her after the jump!

I love a good unofficial poster.  They're almost always a lot cooler than the the authorized versions.  And the collector in me likes the whole limited edition-ness of them, too.  I know that my signed "Dwight Yoakam live at the Wiltern Theater 2007" poster will one day be worth at least $7 to someone.  And I only paid $15 for it.  That's called smart investing.Speaking of smart investing and nerdery, Screen Junkies is headed to Comic-Con for the first time ever this year, and it brings me great pleasure to show you the above special edition Kick-Ass poster designed exclusively for Comic-Con 2009 by artist John Romita Jr.  He's the artist behind the original Kick-Ass comic book series, on which Matthew Vaughn's film is based.  I once met Mr. Romita Jr. and he signed my copy of Ghost Rider, Punisher, Wolverine: Hearts of Darkness AND Cable #1.  I still have both issues.  I still have a lot of issues from the early '90s.  Like painful self-loathing.Here are your kickass weekend links:Amber Marie Mekush On The Beach (Gorillamask)Open Letters To Annoying People (Holytaco)Judd Apatow Interviews Adam Sandler (Filmdrunk)The 69 Sexiest Women Dressed As Wonder Woman (Manofest)Star Wars Themed Battleship!

ComingSoon has premiered a new photo from Wes Anderson's adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic children's tale The Fantastic Mr. Fox. The film centers on a fox who squares off in a battle of wits against three dimwitted farmers. Animation is a bit of a departure for Anderson but his meticulous attention to detail seems well-suited for this work. I'm not totally clear as to why the fox is masturbating in the above photo.Blow off some steam with these morning links…First (non-blurry) look at Scarlett Johansson in Iron Man 2.

SHERLOCK HOLMES International Trailer – Watch more Movie Trailers The new international trailer for Guy Ritchie's SHERLOCK HOLMES has hit the nets today.  It's got a couple new glimpses of the film that the domestic trailer didn't have, including the end "button" in which Jude Law, as Watson, shows he's much more a man of action than words.  Watson subscribes to the same tough guy philosophy as Mike Tyson, minus the rape part, which they really seemed to gloss over in THE HANGOVER.  Don't know why.  Oh, that's right.  Because it was a comedy.

A classic horror hit, a neo-classical horror flick, a horrific look into the making of fast food, and a couple reruns of our favorite episodes of "The Office."  One of these things is not like the others, but all are equally worth your time.  Unlike communicating with your friends and family.  They don't love you like your TV does.  Make sure you give back to it by watching these shows together.FIND OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP…

The Harry Potter franchise offered a unique experience to movie-goers in the sense that they got to see half of the cast grow up on the silver screen.  This made it slightly confusing when the women became more attractive as they got older, making the viewer ask "is she legal?" followed by the usual guilt and shame for even asking the question.  Well, lucky for you, the Screen Junkies have your back.  Bonnie Wright, who plays Ginny Weasley, is now absolutely legal!  Now we can all feel slightly less morally reprehensible while ogling her during The Half-Blood Prince.A Word From Bonnie: "I'm interested in doing more things because I think it'd be interesting to get a new challenge. But I've got my exams coming up and it's quite hard to fit everything in."While Bonnie prepares for exams, you can check out more hot (and legal!) photos of her after the jump!

It's no secret that Funny People has taken the meta "movie-within-a-movie" concept and run with it for miles.  They've made clips like "Yo Teach!" (Jason Schwartzman) and the comic stylings of "Raaaaaaandy!" (Aziz Ansari) part of their potent viral marketing attack.  And today, Judd Apatow, writer-director of Funny People, wrote a guest post on MTV Movies Blog, in which he describes some of the fake movies within the movie… that didn't make it into the movie (not for lack of funny).

Here we have the trailer for Blood and Bone. The film tells the story of Isiah Bone, a man fresh out of prison who enters the Los Angeles underground street fighting scene in order to bring down a local mob boss because God told him too. That seems all well and good and totally batsh*t but what I want to know is, why do characters in movies like this always have the sloppiest parole officers? The guy's out there kicking people to death left and right. And how did he even get out of prison in the first place? Is kicking Kimbo Slice considered good behavior?

WHIP IT Trailer #1 – Watch more Movie Trailers The new trailer for the Drew Barrymore-directed Whip It movie has hit the 'nets.  It stars lil' Ellen Page as a girl who's looking for meaning in her life and finds it when she joins a team of badass rollergirl chicks, including Kristen Wiig, Eve, Juliette Lewis and Barrymore herself.  Sort of a Footloose meets Dodgeball meets Xanadu, if that makes any sense at all (and it barely does to us).  But if you've ever seen the Austin, Texas-based Rollergirls, who have their own show on A&E, you know this roller derby stuff is pretty serious.  It's like a pack of Shawne Merrimans on wheels and on their periods.  Okay I think I just threw up.
