PUNCH-OUT RAP MUSIC VIDEO

Wednesday, May 13 by

Punch-Out Rap – Watch Movie Trailers No, there's not a Punch-Out TV show or film adaptation coming out (though none of us would be surprised about the latter).  No, this is the first installment in a series of old-school Nintendo-based music videos entitled "Gamerjamz."  Turns out all of Little Mac's rivals are quite the cunning linguists.  Not just Don Flamenco.

5 MOVIE ROBOTS THAT DIDN’T WORK

Wednesday, May 13 by

The '09 summer movies have already begun to arrive, but still to come are  some of the biggest, baddest, FX-iest movies around. For robot fans, you can look no further than three of the biggest releases this summer: Terminator Salvation, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and (if it sticks to the cartoon’s use of robot drones to satisfy the ratings board) G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra. [No, colons are not movie code for “Robot Plot.”] Robots are on the A-List now, but they didn't always have it so good.  Here are five cinematic robots that just didn’t work (as they were intended):   T-800 from Terminator Program: Kill Sarah Connor, period.

Evan Daugherty Is Scripting He-Man Movie

Wednesday, May 13 by

Just in from Movie Web, newcomer Evan Daughtery has been hired to pen the new He-Man film, Grayskull. I know that many of you may be worried but don't fret. He has found a way to take the already gay story of He-Man and make it infinitely gay. In the re-imagining "Adam is a soldier who sets off to find his destiny, happening upon the magical world of Eternia. There, Skeletor has raised a technological army and is bent on eradicating magic.” So yeah. Take that magic.No star has been attached yet but I'm pulling for this guy. You can do it buddy!Here are more morning headlines. Megan Fox loves girls who love girls. (Cinema Blend)Sit Down, Shut Up gets shipped out. (Playlist) Sly Stallone almost missed his flight.

JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME TEAMS WITH VINNIE JONES IN ‘WEAPON’

Tuesday, May 12 by

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Vinnie Jones will team up in a film called Weapon, to be directed by Russell Mulcahy, the man responsible for Highlander and Resident Evil: Extinction.  Weapon is the story of rival assassins, sharpshooter Jack Conway (Jones) and knife-wielding Derek Chase (Van Damme), who must blend their skills to foil the head of a drug cartel. A knife man and a gun guy can't get along?  Where's the tension?  They serve two different purposes, really.  I would have much rather heard the following synopsis:

Weapon

Tuesday, May 12 by

Director: Russell MulcahyCast: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Vinnie JonesSynopsis: Jack Conway (Jones) and Derek Chase (Van Damme) are the two best assassins in the world — but unknown to each other. While Conway is a master sharpshooter, Chase is equally skilled with a knife. These two rival assassins form an uneasy alliance to take down the head of a drug cartel, which is backed by the DEA.

Dancing With the Stars’ Cheryl Burke

Tuesday, May 12 by

Well, a ton of TV shows are about to cool it for the summer, but Screenjunkies wanted to heat things back up a little, so this week, we're honoring our favorite dancing girls from this season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." Today's girl is Cheryl Burke, came to "Dancing with the Stars" in Season 2, and has never left, becoming the show's first two-time champ with partners Drew Lachey and Emmitt Smith (in Seasons 2 and 3, respectively). Random Quote: "I want kids or women out there to realize you don't have to be anorexic to be beautiful. There's a lot of pressure living this Hollywood life."Let this be a lesson to everyone.  You don't have to have an eating disorder.  You just need to dance non-stop. Check out the photos Cheryl after the jump or these other Dancing with the Stars Chicks: Kym Johnson, Julianna Hough, Karina Smirnoff

MTV Movie Awards Promo With Anne Hathaway and Andy Samberg

Tuesday, May 12 by

Andy Samberg & Anne Hathaway MTV Promo – Watch more Movie TrailersBefore, there was "Slaughter Shack."  Now, the 2009 MTV Movie Awards proudly presents Andy Samberg and Anne Hathaway in the Hallmark Movie of the Week-like™ film "Evenings with Ms. Eloise." Anne Hathaway proves herself to be a comic equal to Samberg, but looks way hotter in drag here. Like I said before, I may hate everything about the actual awards ceremony, but damned if they don't make funny promos and intersitials to go with 'em.

CLIP FROM ‘THE BROTHERS BLOOM’ – “THE MARK”

Tuesday, May 12 by

A new clip from Rian Johnson's The Brothers Bloom was released today.  In our last installment, we got to see Rachel Weisz's card skills.  In this one, we get to see Adrien Brody's lack of bicycling skills, as he flies down a steep decline and narrowly avoids missing Rachel and her Lamborghini.  Granted, he meant to do it.  It's all part of an elaborate scheme to grift Weisz's character. Watch the clip after the jump, and don't try this at home.  Screenjunkies is seeing The Brothers Bloom tonight and will have a full report when we're allowed.  The film officially opens May 29th.

MEGA SHARK VS. GIANT OCTOPUS TRAILER EMERGES

Tuesday, May 12 by

Down below we have the trailer for Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, the movie that dares ask 'What would happen if a giant octopus fought a mega shark?' The trailer features the colossal sea creatures attacking submarines, boats, oil rigs, jets, commercial flights, and San Francisco. And Earth's only hope is Lorenzo Lamas. *Sigh* Maybe it's not too late to strike some kind of deal with Giant Octopus.   Here are your other morning headlines: Hulu too good to be true. (NY Mag) Aziz Ansari calls out Digital IMAX. (/Film) MTV Movie Awards presenters announced. (MTV) Trek writers explain lack of Shatner. (io9) Where The Wild Things Blog (Latino Review)

SPIKE JONZE SCARES SMALL CHILD WITH ‘WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE’ SUIT

Monday, May 11 by

Where The Wild Things Are Scare – Watch more Movie Trailers /Film posted this video of Spike Jonze scaring the ever loving crap out of a child while wearing a Where the Wild Things Are suit that's like the cheap department store Santa equivalent of the Wild Things from the film.  Still, I'd be scared if my Dad were running around the house wearing this.  Then again, I was scared sh*tless of Michael Jackson in "Thriller" when I was that age.  Maybe that was just good sense.
