April Fools TV Preview

Wednesday, April 1 by

Tonight's schedule is playing no jokes on you, just a slightly more foolish 'hump day' with another treatment of Lost, a shot of Scrubs, and a promise from South Park to cross the line yet again. Reno 911! also premieres with some fresh faces and probably an ample amount of short shorts. Your preview after the break.

CELEBRITY TWEETS STRIP MAGIC FROM MOVIES & TV

Wednesday, April 1 by

The Hollywood reporter posted an article about Twitter going Hollywood, with stars and behind-the-scenes talent starting to constantly update their Twitter accounts, giving us movie fans unprecedented access into the inner workings of filmmaking – no matter how mundane the details.  Ashton Kutcher was reported to have tweeted about the pitfalls of his stunt double showing up to set with a shaved chest.  Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau posted the following last month: "Directing is about waking up every night at 4 a.m., exhausted, and not being able to fall back asleep because your brain is screaming at you."  Directing sounds a lot like editing a blog.  The brain part sounds a lot like my self-loathing, which, incidentally looks a lot like Danny Devito, for whatever reason.  But I would argue all this tweeting strips away the artifice that makes movies fun in the first place. 

OBAMA “TRANSFORMS” WAR IN AFGHANISTAN

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama on Wednesday, April 1st backed down from his initial order of 4,000 more military troops in Afghanistan, vowing instead to “still disrupt, dismantle and defeat”…

GUESS WHICH APRIL FOOLS NEWS IS FAKE. OR NOT.

Wednesday, April 1 by

April Fool's Day is a boon for movie sites, since we thrive so much on rumors anyway.  To me, a great April Fool's joke is one where no one gets hurt, and you don't have to say "April Fools!" at any point in the execution, because it's obvious by the end of it.  Sort of like the entire run of Saved By the Bell: The College Years, which was so good, it debuted in September or something (don't quote me on that).  Nonetheless, movie sites try their darnedest to find a great setup for a rug pull.  Here are a couple noble efforts, followed by some real news, done by real, hard hitting journalists who ask the tough questions rather than just make up answers willy-nilly.  You know who I'm talking about, Variety.  Iron Man 2 Title Worse Than Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark (Cinematical) Matrix Series Gets Fourth Film (/Film)Okay enough of the fakery… everything else is REAL.

“THE HANGOVER” TRAILER IS STILL FUNNY

Tuesday, March 31 by

Zach Galifianakis is still the funniest comedian I've ever seen live.  Ed Helms is still the funniest part about NBC's The Office.  And Bradley Cooper is still the funniest actor to make out with Michael Ian Black in Wet Hot American Summer.  All three guys star in The Hangover, the trailer for which has been out a little while, but we hadn't posted it yet.  I'm hoping this movie gives both Mike Tyson and Phil Collins' "No Jacket Required" album the comeback both parties deserve.  The fact that they're working together toward that cause is what Sting was singing about on "Synchronicity."  Or is that serendipity?  Or synergy?  Just watch the trailer after the jump and laugh.

ESPN Teams With Top Filmmakers on “30 for 30″

Tuesday, March 31 by

Via The Playlist, Screen Junkies caught wind of ESPN's announcement that it will launch a program in the Fall called "30 for 30," a weekly hour-long series pairing famous filmmakers with sports subjects they care about.  We can expect to see Barry Levinson cover the 1984 defection of the Baltimore Colts to Indy, and a Maysles' Bros. film about Muhammed Ali vs. Larry Holmes in '80, among others.  Not all have been announced (including the subjects of films from Spike Lee and Richard Linklater), but ScreenJunkies wondered where this series could go…

STAR TREK GETS LEGO TREATMENT

Tuesday, March 31 by

Yesterday evening, Wired posted some pretty Trek-tacular recreations of famous Stark Trek scenes.  The artist?  Frank Elchesen.  The medium?  Legos.  I'd really like to see the Tribbles episode done up, and I challenge Mr. Elchesen to somehow recreate the furry and adorable, yet pesky little buggers with Legos.  I say it can't be done.  Prove me wrong, Elchesen and I have a Star Trek T-Shirt for you!!!See more of his photos after the jump!

Annalynne McCord From “90210″

Tuesday, March 31 by

Where You've Seen Her: AnnaLynne McCord, has made quite a name for herself (as confusingly spelled as it is) as Naomi on the CW's "90210."  She also played Eden Lord on "Nip/Tuck" and can be seen in Fired Up and Day of the Dead.  We recommend watching AnnaLynne fire a gun in the latter.AnnaLynne Says: “I know you fantasize about me while you're pumping away on little Miss Jenny Craig.”See photos of AnnaLynne after the jump!!!
