NATALIE PORTMAN MUM ABOUT ‘V FOR VAGINA’

Wednesday, May 6 by

If you haven't seen Zach Galifianakis's FunnyOrDie show, Between Two Ferns, you've been missing the internet's best talk show, period.  In the new episode, the hirsute star of the upcoming Vegas comedy The Hangover (also starring likely Green Lantern Bradley Cooper and The Office's Ed Helms) waxes idiotically while interviewing Natalie Portman, who does her best not to crack up.  She's a trooper. Watch the video after the jump, and see Mr. Galifianakis threaten to tie a Yorkshire Terrier's penis in a knot.

PORN STAR STORMY DANIELS TO RUN FOR U.S. SENATE?

Wednesday, May 6 by

There have been rumors floating around, but today, on CNN's "American Morning," anchored by Kiran Chetry, former porn star (and current adult film producer) Stormy Daniels was interviewed about her 'serious' potential candidacy for United States Senate.  If it happens, she would be running in Louisiana against Republican Senator David Vitter, whom you may remember as being involved with the "D.C. Madame" and her prostitution ring back in '07.  Embedded video from CNN Video Not sure what platform Daniels will run on, but if one does only a tiny bit of research (or opens the secret compartment in the air duct where one keeps one's pornography), it's easy to see that Daniels has had experience with several hot button issues of the day.  She's seen action in the Persian Gulf with… She's brushed up on Foreign Relations with… And she's closely examined our broken health care system in…  Seems like we're merely steps away from…

‘STAR TREK’ STARLET: WINONA RYDER

Wednesday, May 6 by

Okay okay, maybe the term "starlet" doesn't apply to Winona Ryder, given that she's consistently worked in the biz since 1988's Beetlejuice.  But with Abrams' new movie, Winona's career is going to get a reboot, just like Star Trek itself.  So it's like a reincarnated starlet. Who is Winona in Trek?  In the film, Winona plays Amanda Grayson, Spock's human mom.  The character has appeared four times prior to this new installment, including the "Journey to Babel" episode in the Original Series, and in the films, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.  If you're the first person to name the episode of the Trek cartoon series in which Amanda appears, WE HAVE A STAR TREK T-SHIRT FOR YOU.  (Just email our feedback_@_screenjunkies.com address)  Fun fact: her marriage to Spock's Dad, Sarek, is widely considered to be the first Vulcan-Human interracial marriage.  Space fevah!Character Quote: "Logic! Logic! I'm sick to death of logic! Do you want to know what I think about your logic?"It would only be logical of you to check out the photos of Winona after the jump:

Wednesday, May 6 by

J.D. moves out to be closer to Sam and also decides to leave Sacred Heart.  Ted and Guch move in together and Elliot takes the fall for Denise’s blunder. RelocationJ.D.’s plans to relocate are set in motion and in a short period of time he has moved into and furnished an apartment, 37 minutes away from Sacred Heart.  Turk is proudly displaying his new Chief of Surgery badge when Denise and Derek emerge from the resting room.  Turk and Derek walk off while Carla and Elliot congratulate Denise for the fish she caught.  Elliot confesses that she’s fantasized about J.D. attacking her and Derek and then having both men pleasure her.  Her fantasy ends with her g etting hold of J.D.’s gun and going on a killing spree.  This helps her finish.  Denise is pretty certain that she’s getting distracted with him, and that her involvement is interfering with her abilities as a doctor.  When Carla asks her if Derek is a nice guy, Denise says she thought his name was “Eric”. A Dish Best Served Cold

Tuesday, May 5 by

Well, it was inevitable, really.  The Punisher is teaming up with Eminem in an all new Marvel comic book.  Read more about it at FilmDrunk, who actually had something insightful to say about it, unlike us.  We just laughed like a schoolgirl thinking of the inevitable in which Eminem can get challenged to battle lyrically, then win because the guy with the twin uzis, trenchcoat and the skull painted on his shirt is standing behind him without his knowlege.  Crowd pleaser!!!And while you're at it, check out these other peoples' insights about stuff and things and more stuff.Supreme Court Listens To Janet Jackson (MoonDogSports)The Best Of Keyboard Cat (SickPigs)Kate Beckinsale Is Hot (Manofest)RP Dom DeLouise (Pajiba)A Corset like Pirates of the Caribbean, but on a dude, and on ice (With Leather)Abby M's Spank Bank (GorillaMask)Homemade Wolverine Claws (IAmBored)Instruction Manuals For The Enterprise (Cracked)More on Wolverine 2 (Filmofilia)Unborn Official Art (DreadCentral)Celebrity Autobiographies We'd Like To See (Holytaco)Celtics Fans Can't Hold Their Booze (BustedCoverage)Charity Hodges Is Also Hot (Uncoached)Trekkies Bash New Star Trek (Unreality)

Tuesday, May 5 by

A new extended scene from Rian Johnson's upcoming The Brothers Bloom has hit the 'Net, and we have it.  Watch carefully as star Rachel Weisz shows how to deliver a compelling monologue while demonstrating the sort of card trickery reserved for hustlers and extremely talented birthday party magicians. Brothers Bloom – Card Trick Scene – Watch more Funny VideosIf you liked that, check out our Brothers Bloom image gallery after the jump.  The film opens in NY and LA on May 15, then wide on May 29. 

Samberg! Arnett! Hader! ‘Slaughter Shack!’

Tuesday, May 5 by

Andy Samberg and Will Arnett in Slaughter Shack – Watch more Funny VideosI generally stay away from the MTV Movie Awards as much as possible, but their promo videos and interstitials during the show keep pulling me back in time and time again.  This time, it's a Road House-inspired fight scene with Andy Samberg, Will Arnett and an amazing cameo by – dare I say it? – someone carrying Phil Hartman's torch… Bill Hader.   

STAR TREK STARLET: ZOE SALDANA

Tuesday, May 5 by

The reviews are rolling in for JJ Abrams' Star Trek reboot, and they're glowing like a phaser set to "kill."  And boy, does Abrams knows how to cast killer lady actors.  For the rest of this week, Screenjunkies will be singling out a Star Trek starlet each day and giving you a few tidbits of their career history before opening night.  Set loins to "aroused."Today's girl is Zoe Saldana, who plays Uhura in the film. Where you've seen her: As Anamaria in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, as Dolores Torres in The Terminal, and as Angie Jones in Vantage Point.  She'll also be in the film version of the second coming of Jesus, James Cameron's Avatar. Pointless Quote: “You need 100% commitment; you have to be willing to wake up every morning knowing you're going to practice eight hours straight.”See the photos of Zoe after the jump:

‘PUBLIC ENEMIES’ TRAILER – THE OLD TIMEY VERSION

Tuesday, May 5 by

The new trailer for Michael Mann's 1930s Gangster flick Public Enemies hit the 'Net earlier today.  So far, so awesome.  It sort of pulls the old A Knight's Tale gimmick of putting contemporary music in a period piece, albeit not quite to the same obvious degree.  But then someone thought golly gee, this movie looks so authentic, we'd be nuts not to give it the ol' newsreel treatment, see!  Watch more Funny Videos We think it fits right in there with some of the old talkies.  Except for the steadicam work, the real car stunts and the lack of horrid compositing. 

Turning Japanese Morning News

Tuesday, May 5 by

Hugh Jackman will be heading to Japan. After kicking the hell out of Matthew McConaughey and the swine flu this past weekend, a Wolverine sequel has been announced. Empire reports that the sequel to the spin-off will focus on the Yakuza storyline from the comics. But I would much prefer to see Wolvie square off against a penis monster or a chimpanzee on a Segway. Ha! Ha! Ha! That chimp thinks he's people!!The nominees for the coveted 2009 MTV Movie Awards have been announced. (Cinema Blend) Nicolas Cage runs over New Yorkers. (MTV) NBC unveils more crappy shows.

LORD OF THE RINGS: A GOOD FAN MOVIE?

Tuesday, May 5 by

This trailer just might satisfy your thirst for LOTR until Del Toro's double header Hobbit comes out… Trailer 2 – The Hunt For Gollum [2]by HuntForGollum  Who knows where the hell all these nerds got the money for helicopter shots and decent makeup, or where they picked up the hot Arwen who's down to kiss said nerds, but these guys (actually 160 volunteers) put together what looks to be a surprisingly good fan film that might actually get off those Simarllion-reading fanboys out there. Check out it out in it's entirety, all 40 minutes of the film (which was released world-wide just two days ago) right after the break.

10 WORST BASKETBALL SCENES IN MOVIES

Monday, May 4 by

The NBA Playoffs are (finally) into the second round and at long last we have gotten over an unbelievably uneventful NCAA Tournament. So, needless to say, we’ve seen some good basketball lately (apart from the Utah Jazz – jab!). Why not take a look at some of Cinema’s darker basketball moments? You know the ones – super-leaping little children tomahawk-dunking on some white doofus’ face when the glass shatters at the buzzer and the crowd goes wild. Those are the moments when people realize, and movies preach, life is not all about basketball. It’s about love, friendship, hard work, and sweat. Lots and lots of sweat.   It’s all still about basketball, though. That’s why the hero gets carried off the court on people’s shoulders. No one gave a damn about anyone learning a lesson, they cared that their team won the game at the last friggin’ second! Not only that, the team showed those jerks over at Opponent High (Fighting Muskrats) that they were the better basketball players and therefore the better people. 

‘SHADOW HARE’ TO TOP BOX OFFICE IN 2013 IF YOU ARE AN EXTREME OPTIMIST, OR SHADOW HARE

Monday, May 4 by

If the studios ever run out of comic book properties to adapt, maybe they should take their creative execs on a retreat to Cincinnati for inspiration.  Check out this video of "The Shadow Hare," the Queen City's resident masked vigilante.  "Since when has Cincinnati had one great hero?" asks Shadow Hare.  I don't know.  Maybe Neil Armstrong.  Maybe Steven Spielberg.  Maybe Ulysses S. Grant.  All crime fighters in the Cincinnati area before they were famous.  Only Spielberg was captured on film, though.
