‘PUBLIC ENEMIES’ ACTRESS MARION COTILLARD

Monday, June 29 by

Where You've Seen Her: The très, trés French starlet Marion Cotillard doesn't have a ton of American flicks under her ceinture just yet, but she's already won a Best Actress Oscar for her performance as chanteuse Edith Piaf in 2007's La Vie En Rose.  In Public Enemies, she plays Billie Frechette, John Dillinger's (Johnny Depp) lady friend.  Look for her in The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan's upcoming mega-budgeted sci-fi Inception, where she'll be one of the more reasonably priced special effects.   A Word From Marion: My parents always told me that if you want something, you can do whatever you have to do to get it. As long as it's not against someone else. Check out the hot photos of Marion "Fair Play" Cotillard after the jump:

10 Hottest Female Newscasters

Monday, June 29 by

There are times in recent years when I am not sure if I am watching the News or "Access Hollywood."  The reporting is as equally superficial and shallow for both nowadays.  Nancy O'Dell should be a news correspondent for FOX, CNN, or MSNBC; she looks the part and can clearly read a teleprompter as good as the other "women journalists" at these corporate news channels. Which one is Nancy O’Dell from "Access Hollywood" and which one is a "serious journalist?" I have no idea, either.

TV PITCHMAN BILLY MAYS HAS PASSED AWAY

Monday, June 29 by

Television's ultimate pitchman has passed away. Billy Mays, the charismatic and clamorous infomercial host died in his sleep after sustaining a head injury during a rough plane landing this past weekend. The very likeable Mays is currently co-starring with Anthony Sullivan on the Discovery Channel show Pitchmen. This really is such a shame. It's always sad to see someone cut down while their star is on the rise. His contributions to the tapestry of television will be sorely missed. (Variety)And on a side note, can we please put a stop to all of these recent high profile deaths?

Watch This Tonight: ‘Hitler’s Stealth Fighter’ on Natgeo

Sunday, June 28 by

Tonight, National Geographic Channel is airing an all-new documentary called "Hitler's Stealth Fighter."  Apparently in the final months of World War II, American troops discovered a top-secret facility in Germany with an advanced, jet-propelled aircraft like no one had ever seen before.  It was called "The Horten Ho 229." It was shaped like a massive bat wing… like something out of Star Wars.  But its wooden body was most definitely man-made.  So what did Uncle Sam's army do with it?  Well, they brought back to the United States to be studied, of course.  And everything that they learned about the Third Reich's mystery plane stayed a mystery… until now. Screen Junkies had a chance to check out an advance screener of the doc, and it's definitely worth watching.  Aside from showing you this prototype of airborne insidiousness inside and out, it also makes you think about what might have happened had Hitler and the Nazis gotten their plane manufactured en masse and into the skies.  It's some scary scheisse. "Hitler's Stealth Fighter" airs tonight at 9PM ET/PT on National Geographic Channel.  Check out some more images and clips after the jump:

THE MICHAEL BAY EXPLOSION TOURNAMENT HAS A WINNER!!!

Friday, June 26 by

ARMAGEDDON FTW! – Watch more Funny Videos It was a wild ride full of BANGs, POPs, BOOMs, KAPOWs, and several WHOOSHes, but once all the proverbial dust settled the asteroid with a mission to send earth back to the dark ages took the prize. Sometimes it’s the movies with the most ridiculous plots that have the best pyrotechnics. Keep that in mind all you young filmmakers as your professors drill the importance of story into your heads.

REVIEW: ‘THE HURT LOCKER’

Friday, June 26 by

This week, we've covered the Transformers from about every possible angle – except their nether regions, because Bay has that covered.  But there's another film starting today that deserves far more asses in seats than Bay's bombastic sequel.  I'm talking about THE HURT LOCKER, which – if you couldn't tell from the pull quote above – Screenjunkies thinks is just about the tensest movie that's come out since NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN. 

FLOWCHART: MICHAEL BAY PICKS BREAKFAST

Friday, June 26 by

Welcome to the final day of BAYWATCH '09.  To recap, we've revisited Bay's Best Music Videos, Pitted Bay's Explosions against one another in the Bracket of Boom, ogled his "Baybes" and collected emails from his personal account.  For the last day, we're getting inside the man's head.  Strap on your safety goggles and flak jackets. By Ian Sobel

NETWORKS TO AIR MICHAEL JACKSON SPECIALS

Friday, June 26 by

As evidenced by the lazily-Photoshopped image above, The King of Pop is no longer with us. Expect this news to take over the airwaves for the next few days as the networks scramble to bring their tributes to the screen. Despite his controversial life and the fact that he often dressed like a Batman villian, we here at Screen Junkies would like to seperate the art from the artist. His talents and legend cannot be denied and will live on through his amazing music.We wanted to play this post out with Thriller, his most cinematic and memorable video, but the embedding is disabled by request. So… here's the Indian version. Trust us, you'll hardly notice the difference. Less bummerific morning news…Michael Bay doesn't drive to work, he skydives to work.

MICHAEL BAY EXPLOSION TOURNEY ROUND 3

Thursday, June 25 by

Well lookee what we got here, boys!  Last round, the asteroid rocked the The Rock's missile and the Giant F**king Robot 'splodin' the bus beat out the combustible mansion. Even Michael Bay, with his infinite wisdom and soothsaying powers, told us in a conversation that didn’t really happen that he was literally BLOWN AWAY by the results. Now we're down to the Big Boom and the tension is so palpable you could masticate it like a big ol' bag of Big League Chew.  THE FINAL MATCHUP

ANGRY LETTERS FROM MICHAEL BAY

Thursday, June 25 by

It's Day 4 of BAYWATCH '09.  Transformers Revenge of the Fallen has opened to huge numbers as expected, and we've given you the Michael Bay goods in the form of a Music Video Retrospective, an Explosions Tourney pitting the best Bay BOOMs against each other, and a giant gallery of Michael Bay's Babes.  Now it's time for a look at the more personal, introspective side of the man…

WEINSTEIN TALKS “BASTERDS” EDITS

Thursday, June 25 by

Looks like reports of Harvey Weinstein demanding Quentin Tarantino cut 40 minutes out of Inglorious Basterds were premature. GQ caught up with Harvey at a cocaine buffet and he had this to say:"Come on, there's sh*t on that cutting-room floor that'll blow your brains out. I was telling Quentin the opposite—'You should put that sh*t back in the movie… I'm praying he puts that sh*t back in, ‘cause it's un-f*cking-believably great."So, there you have it. The sh*t stays in the picture.Check this other sh*t out!Watchmen Director's Cut is headed to select theaters. (Collider)The Oscars are bigger and longer now too.

TRAILER FOR ‘THE BOX’ WITH CAMERON DIAZ & JAMES MARSDEN

Wednesday, June 24 by

THE BOX Trailer – Watch more Funny Videos Above is the new trailer for the not-so-new-but-unreleased The Box, starring Cameron Diaz, James Marsden as a young, innocent couple from The South and Frank Langella as a devilish man who presents the couple with a big red button that, when pressed, kills a random stranger.  Why, pray tell, would one want to push a button that kills someone?  Well because the pusher is rewarded with an attaché case full of money.  This is either the dumbest idea for a horror movie or the best Staples commercial in the history of the brand.
